In this episode, I chatted with evolutionary psychologist Dr. Geoffrey Miller. Geoffrey is an author and researcher widely known for studying sexual selection in human evolution.
We spoke about the dynamics of men and women and women in the context of dating and relationships. I asked him about monogamy from an evolutionary perspective and what traits men and women look for and find attractive in the opposite sex.
