Human beings share a large set of unconscious tendencies that were encoded into our genes over millions of years and are now being played out in predictable ways in modern relationships.They find that there may be a “dividend effect” where multiracial men and women are preferred above all other groups, including Whites, an effect which could be attributed to cultural representations of multiracials as exotic, sexual, trendy, and attractive.Researchers have long documented the existence of a racial hierarchy within the U. dating world, with White women and men the most preferred partners, Blacks the least preferred, and Asians and Latinos falling somewhere in between.According to anthropologist Helen Fisher, if you took cavemen from 30,000 years ago and threw them into the modern dating scene, their Paleolithic emotions would be very similar to our own.“The essential choreography of human courtship, love, and marriage has a myriad of designs that seem etched into the human psyche through the product of time, selection, and evolution,” Fisher explained.
