Women's behavior today is driven largely by ancient DNA from their female ancestors who lived over the past millions of years. Women are still using some of the same million-year-old behaviors, even though those behaviors are unnecessary today.

One of women's strongest inherited behaviors from their ancestors is to build close friendships with as many other women as possible. The purpose of this relationship-building is to ensure survival and protection of themselves as well as any present and future children.

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 adapt to their environment and survive better. The survivors were able to raise children who had the same heritable traits in their DNA for female relationship-building.

Women today still exhibit a need for relationship-building with other women. This holds true even if they have no children and even after the childbearing years!

Men's Survival Tactics Are Different Than Women's

Men in conflick

Relationships have not been important to men for their survival for millions of generations. In stead, men have evolved to be competitive and combative in order to survive.

Men rely primarily on their physical strength and clever tactics to manipulate their physical world and others.

Men do not have an evolved need for building relationships with anyone else like women do.
