Choose your tribe

That is all the dysfunction anyone could ever want to find. And even if you aren’t interested in having kids, the lesson is clear: if you want to find lasting love, it would seem non-optimal to behave like a member of the Tournament tribe. Our hindbrains aren’t good at fine distinctions. That means that males who push for sex rapidly, who jump from partner to partner, and have previous children they aren’t engaged in raising are BAD choices if you want a lasting love, girls.

And I hate to say this, but those women who jump in and out of bed quickly, who insist on being “just as sexually aggressive as men” and have had trouble implementing birth control are simply RADIATING “Tournament” tribe. While there are exceptions to such rules, it suggests some pretty simple rules if what you’re looking for is a long-term relationship.
