My speed dating experience
Then you rotate one to your right and you meet the next victim.Basically, the object of this “game” is to get the other person to remember your name before the time is up.Some of it might’ve been weird, but all in all it allowed me freedom to try different approaches which was well received.Secretly hoping to meet a crazy lady that lived with twelve cats, I was a tad disappointed when I didn’t meet as many quirky women as I hoped for.Therefore, first impressions are of utmost importance. The speed dating system inherently encourages routine behavior due to the nature of meeting someone new every 5 minutes.Being one to never follow convention, I had brought up some weird topics and entered zones where I’m sure no other guys dared to venture.I’m not gonna go into detail, but lets just say that I doubt any other guys brought up the topic of poop or video games.
Neurobiologist Robert Sapolsky constructed a reproductive spectrum with opposite poles being tournament species, in which males compete fiercely for reproductive privileges with females, and pair bond arrangements, in which a male and female will bond for life.
In modern times, emphasis on the institution of marriage, generally described as a male-female bond, has obscured pair bonds formed by same-sex and transsexual couples, and that many heterosexual couples also bond for life without offspring, or that often pairs that do have offspring separate.
Thus, the concept of marriage is changing widely in many countries.
From the standpoint of anthropology and sociology, dating is linked with other institutions such as marriage and the family which have also been changing rapidly and which have been subject to many forces, including advances in technology and medicine.
As humans societies have evolved from hunter-gatherers into civilized societies, there have been substantial changes in relations between men and women, with perhaps one of a few remaining biological constants being that both adult women and men must have sexual intercourse for human procreation to happen.
