In line with the current trend that invites you to park romantic love and change it for 'emotional responsibility' (assuming that one can choose who to fall in love with, in some way), Dolly Alderton answered in her office to the question that gave rise to this article with a rather optimistic answer, which invited sentimental nonconformity: "Enjoy the process of meeting many people and having all kinds of meetings and relationships. Try not to caricature men with the dichotomy of good and boring or charismatic and dangerous. My friend Lauren has been a couple for over a decade and wrote the best line I've ever read about lasting love: 'It's not the absence of fun, it's the absence of fear.' Keep it in mind when looking for someone to share life with, someone who brings you fun without fear. Someone whose company you love. Someone who makes you feel alive and safe and understood. Those are the details you should look for. The rest doesn't matter so much." Very easy. The matter has crumbs and I think I am not wrong if I say that a high percentage of women have gone through the trance: to see how people follow each other as protagonists of their sentimental lives the sea of interesting, full of magnetism and attractiveness ... that over time end up disappointing or making them suffer. And meanwhile, an army of men with less mystery than a Sunday without the Fourth Millennium, but nicer than the pesetas, are still there, composed and without a partner ... waiting for us. Is love blind or is it a lost? The 'fault' of this choice, sometimes against all common sense (but as José Ramón Alonso says, is that we have the frontal cortex 'turned off'), would also be the genes. The traits that we all, men and women, perceive as attractively virile, and that are not only physical (they also add a certain decision, aggressiveness, abruptness in posture and movement ...) proclaim male hormones to litronas. Said in evolutionary biology: good genes with which to spawn 'efficient hunters', or 'successful uncles', if we bring it to today's language. Since early 2020, Dolly Alderton has been sharing her wisdom, warmth and wit with the countless people who have written in to her Dear Dolly agony aunt column in The Sunday Times Style. Their questions range from the painfully—and sometimes hilariously—relatable to the occasionally bizarre. They include breakups and body issues, families, friendships, dating, divorce, the pleasures and pitfalls of social media, sex, loneliness, longing, love and everything in between.

Her refreshing take makes for compulsive reading.

On love, life and friendship' is the title of the book where the British Dolly Alderton (for Forbes, one of the brightest Europeans under 30) collects many of the questions and answers that her office has generated from the supplement 'Style' of 'The Sunday Times', such as that of Elena Francis, but in current, without ideology and with often exotic problems at first glance. Like the one who opens the book: "Dear Dolly: help! My height scares men!", or the one that gives title to this article: "Dear Dolly: do I stop dating charismatic men and settle for a nice one?".

Thus, we would tremble for the bones of men with decidedly masculine, angular and prominent features when we were going through ovulation, while we would prefer men with more feminine, soft, childish features, when the risk of pregnancy was low. From these observations, the researchers deduced that women would be more prone to infidelity on days when fertilization was more likely, and that we would also practice it with 'harder' looking men. Genes are to blame, peepy I haven't beenIf the head tells you that you better be nice but your desire points again and again to the 'bad guy', science also has an explanation from the perspective of evolutionary psychology. A little over a decade ago, a group of scientists led by David Perrett, then at the University of Bristol (Great Britain) and now professor of Psychology at the University of St Andrews in Scotland, where he directs the Perception Laboratory, conducted an experiment whose conclusion was that women are attracted to two different types of male physicist. depending on the time of the menstrual cycle they go through. having loved dolly’s previous works, particularly ‘everything i know about love’ (which is an all time favourite of mine), i was excited to devour more of her words of wisdom. being a collection of her advice columns in the new york times, it was short & informative & wildly entertaining, encouraging and inspiring.

Says neurobiologist José Ramón Alonso ('The brain in love', Espasa) that "the frontal cortex is the center of executive functions, critical judgment, planning and logic. In love, all these elements are thrown overboard. The decrease in the activity of that area of the brain translates into a suspension of judgment, in a relaxation of the rational criteria with which we judge other people ... Love makes us not see the defects of the person we like or the dangers that the relationship can entail. The alarm signals pass iandverted, even if they shine like a Christmas tree or sound like the siren of an oil tanker. Neuroscience shows that love is blind and illogical. Maybe otherwise it wouldn't work." The solution, two men instead of one?
