Man Test: 3 Things To Look For

We'll preface this by saying: This is not hard science. And it's not based on a research study, either. Rather, we've soaked up this advice in casual conversations during visits with friends (informal polling, one might say). Women told us about the silent observations they make in early-stage dating. Yes, we know, sneaky. But actions speak volumes and men are likely doing the same exact thing.

Is Attraction Just Genetic Compatibility?

While it's been documented that scent most certainly plays a role in sexual attraction, Cornell University scientists studied the mating patterns of fruit flies and discovered the females are biologically primed to procreate with males of different strains, which is something they seem to instinctively pick up on once in the presence of a male. While we doubt lady fruit flies flit away like uninterested homosapien women, researchers noted a difference in behavior when around males of the same general family, and ones of more removed genes. This is the fruit fly's way, they say, of mixing and matching genes in an effort to produce healthier baby flies. While, of course, they don't want to say a fruit fly's mating patterns match a human's for godsakes, but this just another example in nature of how attraction is largely dictated by whom you'd produce the most unique children. Unique, in this instance, meaning as far off from inbred as possible.
