Discover the dramatic difference between men and women!
Women today still use some of the same million-year-old behaviors of their female ancestors. The behaviors are in women's DNA. One of the most important traits still hanging on is to build close friendships with as many other women as possible. Relationship-building in the past was necessary to ensure survival and protection.
During the past millions of years, women's ancestors lived in a hostile and dangerous environment. Daily life was filled with many dangers, and life was often short. Women's heritable traits for relationship-building enabled them to survive better.
Women today still exhibit a need and skill for relationship-building with other women.
Relationship building with other women comes easily for women today. Women unconsciously know every smile, pleasant word, and caring encounter with another woman is an investment in future survival. DNA still in women today makes relationship-building a natural daily activity wherever possible.
Relationships have not been important to men for their survival for millions of generations. Instead, men have evolved to be competitive and combative in order to survive.
Men do not have an evolved need for building relationships with anyone else like women do. Can you see the problem?
