    then there is short term and long term mating preferences. Males are more likely to prefer short term mating due to evolutionary desire to pass on as many copies of his genes as possible. This can be linked with parental investment, saying how women have more risk ie pregnancy and can only be pregnant once at one time.
    Long term mating is where both sexes invest heavily in their offspring. As women are biologically obligated to invest in offspring, they generally more choosy about their man. 1) male is able () to invest resources in her and children 2) able to protect her and children 3) Shore promise of being s good parent 4) compatible with her to minimize cost to her and children (Buss 2003)
    Men are more likely to choose women that display signs of fertility, there is another study by Buss which explores men's preference for younger women.
