The perfect mate is no easy task, and the process is often a challenge for both men and women.
The problem, according to a study, is that when men choose a woman, they often end up choosing a mate with lower levels of emotional investment.
“The fact that a mate is a lower-level person does not mean that he or she is less interested in the relationship,” researcher Carlos de la Torre said in a press release.
“Rather, they are motivated by the same kind of attraction that we are — the desire to improve the relationship.”
For men, the problem is particularly acute, as their emotional investment in a woman is often at its lowest level.
“A man’s interest in a female is lower than the interest in the opposite sex.
When he meets her, he may have more interest in her than the other guy.
And if she is a good match for him, he will do anything to impress her,” de la Torres said.
“It’s a bit like the mating game.”
But the solution may not be so simple.
Researchers at the University of Texas found that a man’s social class — or lack thereof — does not influence how well he performs in a romantic match.
The study found that men from lower socioeconomic classes showed lower levels a woman’s emotional investment, and those with more social class performed better in a relationship than those with lower social class.
However, the study did not measure the level of a woman in a man.
The results were based on a group of 200 men and 200 women who were all interested in a mate.
After selecting a partner, the participants rated each partner on their emotional interest, how interested they were in the person and how likely they were to marry that person.
They also took into account how much money they would have to invest in the other person to get their ideal mate, and how much they were willing to pay.
The researchers then took their results and ran them against a model of a heterosexual monogamous relationship.
Men and women who are in a monogamous relationships tend to invest the same amount of money into their partners, which can have positive and negative effects on their relationships, the researchers found.
A partner with lower emotional investment would have lower levels in their relationship.
If you were in a more egalitarian relationship, the relationship would have less of a negative effect.
And a partner with higher emotional investment is more likely to make the right decisions for you.
“We know that when people invest the amount of time and energy into a relationship, it can have a positive effect,” de La Torre told Business Insider.
“For instance, a relationship that has a higher emotional engagement may also provide a partner more time and space to make decisions for them.”
De La Torres, who also conducted a similar study in 2013, thinks that couples who invest the most money are likely to have a happy, fulfilling relationship.
The authors of the new study are planning to study the impact of a man or woman’s socioeconomic status on the emotional investment that a partner brings to a relationship.
They are also exploring how this could affect a man and a woman trying to make a romantic decision together.
