Most of us have been there at some point. Dated someone to find out we’re not the only one. It’s one thing if you have a mutual agreement, but it’s a whole different story when you find out your boo is living a double life with a wife and children. You’re devastated by the ordeal and leave. Good for you if you get away that quickly. His response may be to try to get back with you or begin his seduction on the next victim. Why?
According to science, human beings are not meant to be monogamous. So why settle down and get hitched. Humans conform to monogamy for social and financial reasons. We’ve all heard, “It’s cheaper to keep her.” It’s sad but true. Ninety-five percent of men feel the need to spread their seeds; only five percent remain faithful.
Nearly five percent of over 4,000 species of mammals remain faithful and the ones to form lifelong monogamous bonds are surprisingly not humans, but beavers, wolves, goose, and some bats.
The great Freud contends that civilization thrives off the repression of instincts….so is there hope for the human race? Is a man just a man? Are females any better?
Are we picking the wrong mate? Should we lower our standards?
Some say yes; others no. I refuse to believe that there are no good ones left, but I do think they are few and far between. Being on the dating scene can definitely be a jading experience. Still yet as a hopeless romantic, I cannot give up hope on my Mr. Right.
Are there any good men out there? What about faithful females? Fellas chime in too.
