Humor, Dating, Mating, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Humor, Dating, Mating, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine

I met with a current doctoral student Chloe Lloyd studying evolutionary psychology, which basically means she looks at how our current behaviors are linked to evolution. We nerded out this episode! Have you wondered WHY things are funny? Why have people struggled with online dating? What is the most important characteristic of attractiveness for men and women? What do men and women look for in sexual partners versus romantic partners? Are humans meant to be monogamous or non-monogamous? She answers all of this and much more! She also discusses her fascinating research on speed dating and the most effective types of humor in that context. This was a very interesting episode, and I cannot wait for you to listen!
