Online dating and mating
Match's chief scientific adviser, Helen Fisher, said that might be because summertime is the mating season in many species — and even though humans breed all year long, "increasing light does give us a sunny personality and more energy and optimism — all of which could increase our sexuality.” If you're thinking about joining a dating site in the near future, and if you're somewhat terrified by the prospect of that we're more attracted to people in expansive — as opposed to contracted — postures, even if we don't consciously realize it.
Men especially appear more attractive to women when they're holding their arms upward in a "V," reaching out to grab something, or standing in another expansive position.
Experts say that many people find the performance comical to watch, which is perhaps why his otherwise impressive dance may have missed the mark with this lovestuck bird's chosen woman.'We have incompatible genitals, pigeon,' the woman can be heard saying in the background, as the hopeful bachelor preens its feathers and fans his tail.
The woman wrote that pigeons practicing their mating dances around her Brisbane residence was not uncommon, but there was one special bird that only had eyes for her.'This pigeon in particular really wanted to mate with me, despite the obvious species difference,' she recalled.
However, pigeons are loyally monogamous and pair for life, so this bird was most likely looking for someone to settle down with.
Or, hey, maybe it's that people look better when they aren't bundled up in an oversized turtleneck sweater.
