It's not your mother; it's wild animals that give the best dating advice.
Lately, I’ve had a keen interest in wildlife. When I set out to explore our animal friends, I didn’t expect to encounter so many parallels between animal courtship and human dating as well as a wealth of smart advice offered up by our furry (scaly, feathered, etc.) counterparts. Could it be that we’re overthinking dating? Maybe. Here are a few important lessons to consider.
It’s okay to date around.
Are you one of those gals who can’t seem to find Mr. Right? It’s not that you’re a commitment-phobe, you just haven’t found your perfect match. Friends and family claim “you’re being too picky” and you’re beginning to wonder if they’re right. No worries, now you have science — in the form of an endless list of wild animals — on your side. And being choosy and exploring your options may be one of the most important rules of thumb. Marriage is serious business, and finding your mate can take a lot of searching. Just ask barnacle geese. They have several relationships before they find that special goose. Like the goose, you’ll eventually find someone perfect for you.
