Speed dating sex free sex dating online
Other research has shown that Extraverts do better than introverts in a rapid mating context such as speed dating (Luo & Zhang, 2009; also see : the more shy the man appeared, the less popular the man.
The researchers suggest that this may be due to traditional male sex roles, which require men to be assertive and proactive in the mating domain, skills that may not come as easily to shy guys.
The researchers raise the possibility that a male's sociosexuality may indicate his history of successful mating experiences or mating skills (i.e., high mating intelligence), and that this is attractive to women.
They set up a speed-dating event and invited a total of 382 people (190 men and 192 women) who were aged 18-54 to participate.
Seeing as I have very little understanding of women (as do the rest of us males), perhaps I'm missing something but it sounds quite counter-intuitive.
The arguments for this seem either forced or just speculation because it seems that men who prefer casual encounters or are willing to engage in such, are less likely to want a long-term commitment.
However, those that do engage in such short-term relationships do admittedly flirt and grab women's attention in that 3 minute window better and perhaps this is the flaw of the study.
The short time period of interaction could skew the results as you have 3 minutes to make a judgment call on someone and you have to take everything at face value so you can be a total narcissistic a-hole but you don't have to let them know that for 3 minutes.
Speed Dating is great from the perspective that you can meet many people in a short period of time, which makes it much more time efficient than many other dating methods.
