    Evolution yes. Girls and choosy males are competetivey
    it's cos females have more to ''lose'' init. males can just :hump: and then run off apparently.

    tbh I really dont care how attractive one is, how the consecutive generations pan out in terms of attractiveness because we all know that when there's an earthquake, a tsunami or a landslide, humans are utterly a fail, be they attractive or not. And we're coming to the end. Fast.
    Amen.

    Because most guys are desperate and incapable of overcoming primal instincts.

    Glad you said most not all

    the evolutionary theory and sexual selection theory explain this.. women only have a limited number of times they can give birth n have offspring, so they want to make it count, ensuring the male they choose has the best physical qualities/ genes to pass on..in the hope to increase their youngs chance of survival..hence girls are picky, men however can impregnate endless amounts of women (given the chance) and so tend to be less picky as a large number of offspring are bound to survive if they have so many... according to Attenborough, women go for quality rather than quantity and men go for quantity rather than quality...

    gosh..someone has been revising aqa a2 psychology!

    Are they? I don't know... I reckon I'm pretty selective.

    PS @ O-Ren: Biology doesn't 'know' anything, and looking at boys and girls from the same parents one finds that more often than not they're each other's equals in terms of looks.
    I don't think that's true, biology responds to society. Our bodies are much cleverer than we can comprehend. I read a paper that said the more attractive the parents the more likely they are to have girls. 60% more likely in fact. Of course the paper could one day be refuted - that is the nature of science - but I'm not a psychologist and neither are you so meh. We can both only parrot what we've read or draw on what we've observed.

    You can't refute the paper with your observation though :P

    Just re-read: your observation is actually really silly. That's not what I said, I said that two attractive parents are more likely to have girls than boys. Not that the boys they do have will be uglier than the girls

    because girls dont think with their genitals, they usually take more into consideration than the fact that they wanna get lucky!

    Why then, do you see so many couples of unattractive men with hot women, but NEVER hot men with unattractive women? Hmmmm?

    (Although I think the statement is largely true, but it's all to do with sex drive - apparently men drive stonking 4x4 while we women chug along in our fiats)

    Also like many others I would disagree that guys go for quantity over quality. Some do, most don't I think. They go for the hottest they can get and if they're all dogs they only usually go for them if some kind of game involving man points is going on.

    because they can only get pregnant every 9 months. Need to be selective about the father.

    In terms of willingness to go with the opposite sex? Girls tend to look at a guy and think 'ew' more times than vica versa.
    because they have a choice

    Actually its because a lot of guys take what comes their way because girls usually decide who's getting laid and who isn't thus opportunities may be limited for some.

    Cause i produce a few million sperm a second.

    Girls produce 1 egg a month, only for a good 20-30 years.

    I can go impregnate tons of girls, and nothing will happen to me. For the girl though she then has a kid that she has to raise.

    It's a simple evolutionary reason. Girls have to be selective, if the position was reversed and men only produced tiny amount of sperm and women produced tons of eggs, then men would be the selectors. Simple as that.
