Natural Selection: Who Should You Cheat With?

A study published in February’s Psychological Science found that women in relationships are more likely to consider cheating with single men when they’re fertile, but they’d go after attached men when they’re not. Researchers think this might be because nature wants us to make babies, and if a man’s not as willing to get busy, he’s a waste of time. When women are not in a baby-making moment, they want someone who could nicely replace their current partner, and men who are already in relationships show that they can commit. Single women, on the other hand, don’t give a crap whether a man’s single or attached. They just wanna make out. [Nature News]
