From evolution point of view, a woman (as any female in the animal kingdom) is investing a whole lot when choosing a partner: getting pregnant, carrying pregnancy for 40 weeks, birth, breastfeeding, nurturing and caretaking until a child’s adult age are only few of the investments she is making. Even if she’s not consciously doing it, what she’s searching for is a perfect father to her children (whether she plans to have children or not, the instinct is there). From evolutionary perspective, she’s looking for a worthy sperm donor for her life long investment.
What does perfect male have?
High sperm quality. She doesn’t want to spend years in “trying” to get pregnant. He needs to have “the right genes” so that her child (children) will have the best possible chance to remain healthy and alive. One important group of the “right genes” her body is automatically sensing is a group of HLA (human leukocyte antigen) genes, which play a major role in body’s immune system response against a disease. In short, the higher variety of HLA genes a person has, the better is the defence mechanism against a variety of diseases.
But how would she recognize a perfect biological match if there was no physical signal?
Raised heartbeat and butterflies in the stomach, are means her body is communicating to her this is biologically compatible guy: “Jump on him”!
She doesn’t do that. He needs to be socially compatible too, because, unlike the majority of the animal kingdom, humans have developed a fine partnership relation where both man and woman stay together and take care of the progeny… most of the time. They will spend a lot of time together so they need to be on the same “wave length” too.
If he’s on the same wave length as well as hot, then she jumps on him.
Of course, none of this goes though any lady’s mind in exactly this way. It’s all very fine tuned, automatic sequence of events that allows for the best possible partner choice, and it happens naturally and subconsciously.
“But I don’t understand it, after I’ve done the GenePartner Test, when I find the guy online that is both socially and biologically compatible to me, how will I know it, will I recognize it when we meet?” Tanya, one of our members writes to us.
To all the ladies with the same question in mind: The man will take your breath away!
