"Ever wonder why a seemingly perfect body does not necessarily a strong attraction make? Proponents of evolutionary psychology believe that it's the face that may seal the attraction deal. Perfect facial symmetry, they say, equals sexual desirability. But why? From conception, the human body develops by neatly splitting cells in half if all goes well, a "perfect" human, with an equal right and left side, results. But since nature makes mistakes, and genetic mutations do occur, most of us have little physical quirks, like one ear that is bigger than the other. From an evolutionary standpoint, we're all looking to create strong, healthy offspring. So it makes sense that those who are more symmetrical and more likely to be desirable mates are also often the most sexually attractive! Interestingly, it's also the only measure of attraction that crosses all cultures!More »

If fashion magazines are any indication, men want walking stick figures as partners. But biology (and real life) tell another story!

"A perfect set of legs never hurts, but what else do men desire? Some men like breasts, and others prefer butts, but all of them are biologically programmed to look for certain traits in a partner. Men are often subconsciously drawn to women with large eyes. That's because the feminine hormone, estrogen, halts bone growth in the brow making eyes prominent-and signaling strong reproductive genes. Of course, the "hips don't lie" when it comes to what men find attractive. Women with a waist to hip ratio of .7 inches or less-whereby the waist is significantly narrower than the hips-are attractive to men. That's because fat deposited on a woman's body is controlled by estrogen. A woman who produces an ideal amount of the hormone naturally winds up with a waist to hip ratio in this range, creating the coveted hourglass figure. But as any girl who's spent time in a crowded bar knows...men are definitely open to all their options!More »

Everyone experiences a broken heart at some point, but for some people, a break up can be the cause of deep depression. In this video, we'll look at how ending relationships can effect college students, and how to cope if your own heart is broken.

"Breaking up is hard to do," and you didn't need a song to tell you that. If you are afraid of the emotional consequences of ending your current relationship, it may not be as difficult as you think. According to a recent study in the Journal of Experimental Psychology, college students underestimate their ability to survive heartache. But, if you're not among those who are feeling better than expected, here are some tips on how to cope with the end of a relationship'. It's vital to remember that the relationship, not your life, has ended. The pain of breaking up will pass with time. You will get over the pain. Want proof? Check out this study, which showed that within one year of a college breakup, 95-percent of students reported feeling "happy" and "recovered." While you're working through the heartache of your break-up, try to focus on parts of your life which have nothing to do with your ex. Take weekend trips with friends, join a new club, or even ask a pal to set you up. Be cautious not to turn to drugs, alcohol or promiscuous sex as a replacement for your relationship. The temporary relief that these things may provide are rarely worth the consequences. But, if you find yourself overindulging these activities, or if you've noticed a dip in your grades, withdrawal from social situations, or obsessive thoughts about your ex, it may be time to seek out some help. Think about talking to a close friend, or visiting your school's health center to make an appointment for counseling, a service that most colleges offer for free. It can help to talk openly, and to explore possible changes in your lifestyle that may make it easier for you to get through this time; intact and stronger than ever.More »
