Sociological aspects of dating
Truly, what one person finds as attractive is not what others find to be attractive.
There are a few biological, psychological, and social-emotional aspects of appearance that tend to make an individual more attractive to more people.
This is important to understand that we subjectively judge ourselves as being more or less attractive; because we often limit our dating pool of eligibles to those we think are in our same category of beauty.
If you are 6 foot tall as a man or 5 foot 8 as a woman, then you are slightly above average in height.
Filtering is the process of identifying those we interact with as either being in or out of our pool of people we might consider to be a date or mate. We might include some because they know someone we know or exclude the same people because they are total strangers.
It’s the proximity you might experience by: living in the same dorms or apartment buildings; going to the same university or college; working in the same place of employment; or belonging to the same religious group.
Does that mean that you could have 15 million potential mates out there somewhere? You see, it would take more time than any mortal has in their life to ever interact with that many people.
Besides dating and mate selection is not about volume it’s about quality and intimacy in the relationship.
In other words, how many single females or males are there in the same classroom?
In the United States there are millions of people between the ages of 18-24 (18-24 is considered prime dating and mate selection ages).
