I will admit that most of the knowledge gained from psychology studies that a person knows is not put into practice very often, but occasionally there is something that you learn that applies to your situation and you can use that information to better yourself. i understand that american females have an expectation of jewellery, cars, etc. Dear Reader The authors of the study are European men.
Also many people who like to learn about psychology, such as myself, are fascinated by psychological theories and their potential applications. Their point is we should relax and take our time and avoid giving money or paying rent etc.
You can read Part II right now and learn how women use other signals to decide mating strategies and whether to sleep with the guy.
So gift-giving is a fascinating type of signal that both men and women can use to discriminate between "good" and "bad" partners.
Lesson learned for the ladies: be alert to the kinds of gifts that he gives and whether he is willing to persist, even without sex.
The wasteful dancing, the wasteful gift-giving, the wasteful conversation, the wasteful laughter, the wasteful foreplay, the wasteful adventures.
..acts of love considered most romantic are often those that cost the giver the most, but that bring the smallest material benefits to the receiver.
Are we just in love with data accumulation as a substitute for personal transformation.
Do we have enough data yet or do we believe we always need more to understand life better and evolve ? the purpose should be to relax, maybe form a bond with another person at a non-materialistic level, and/or designed to have a baby. (not nature....) i assume the American association of jewellers and US car manufacturers have somehow instigated this ??????
