What’s the number one thing all female animals in nature are attracted to?
And does the answer to this question teach us anything about how women like us can have more success meeting and attracting the women we want to date?
Well my guest on this podcast shares these answers with us and her insights are going to surprise you.
My guest, Dr. Jennifer Verdolin, is an animal behaviorist who specializes in social and mating behavior across all species.
You know, the thing about our behavior (human behavior) is that we can easily take it for granted. Because we’re too close to it.
You know how we can look in the mirror sometimes and notice that our hair is too long (even though we didn’t notice it growing until that moment)?
It’s like how most fish probably don’t realize that they’re swimming in water.
When we’re too close to something we can’t see it clearly enough to properly examine it and/or understand it.
And that’s what human behavior is like for us.
In order for us to see and examine our own behavior we need more perspective.
And that’s what’s so cool about animal behaviorists. They learn about human nature by studying nature itself (the animals in nature) and drawing parallels.
By looking at other creatures’ behaviors these scientists get a broader perspective of what ranges of behavior are possible. And by seeing what some animals do differently they get to reflect upon aspects of human behavior that we might otherwise miss, the way a fish might miss the fact that it’s swimming in water.
Do you want to learn about the ways that females evolved to behave around other females throughout the natural world?
Do you want to learn about female strategies for attracting mates that we evolved with?
Do you want to learn how females get attention in nature?
Do you want to learn about getting attention from females in nature?
Do you want to know how all of this applies to women like us when we meet a woman we like?
These are questions I had been dying to ask an animal behaviorist for a long time and I was very excited to finally get to have this conversation.
