What the what!!
A new study is suggesting that when women are ovulating, the men who are courting them subconsciously alter their own speech patterns to better attract them! Nature is cray!!
They pick up on subtle changes in her skin tone, voice, and scent — and then they become less likely to mimic the woman’s sentence structure. This promotes more creativity and nonconformity — which the ladies like!
“At least a part of the interpersonal dynamic that exists when men and women are getting to know prospective romantic partners is being governed by the biology of a woman’s body and men’s sensitivity to these biological factors.”
People have been kinda aware of this for years… we see it all the time in movies. Writing a poem to get a lady? A song? Holding a boom box over you head??
But this is the first time we've noticed the actual sentence structure:
When the women were less fertile, men copied their sentence constructions 62% of the time. But the rate dropped to just under 50% when the women were at peak fertility.
Nature is a powerful thing!
Chew on that for V-Day, lovebirds!
