Why do females fall for the “jerks” and males the “sluts”?
Tend to fall for the “jerk” or alpha males. Have little regard for self’s mental stability when with said alpha male. Do not mind when they catch male exhibiting unwanted behavior. Ignore those “nice”, or beta, males
Tend to fall for the “sluts” or alpha females. Go into hormone-induced “la-la land” when around said alpha female. Ignore the “nice”, or beta, females.
I believe that there is something in human DNA that controls this pairing off. As said by Amy Reeder Hadley (quoted in Fool’s Gold, volume 1, by Penny): “…But I hypothesize it [the ‘hole’ in females’ brains] developed in our genetics through natural selection, back in the cavemen days, when we had to make lots of babies in order for our species to survive. If we chose jerks to be the fathers, we knew they would kill and steal enough food for our babies to make it through the winter.” The selections could be due to genetic factors and natural selection.
