Ladies, if you don't want stress, don't date ugly
We all aspire to date and marry hotties like Heidi Klum or George Clooney. Problem is, most of them might not want us. So we end up doing what most species (from birds to humans) do: SETTLE (unless you are in Hollywood of course).
According to a new study, a large percentage of females end up with males of below average on the attractiveness scale. The results of this new study are contrary to earlier theories which claimed that in monogamous species, every female has a pretty decent chance of coupling with a male who has similar qualities of her ideal mate. And apparently there are ‘side effects’ of settling for unattractive mates…raised female stress levels.
This research, conducted on Gouldian finches showed that when these female birds were paired with male birds of the same head color, they laid eggs a month earlier than those birds that were mis-matched. Also, the females that were matched with males of a different head color had three to four times higher levels of stress hormone corticosterone than their female counterparts that were paired with males of the same head color.

The above findings are believed to apply to humans too. "For too long we have looked at monogamous relationships as mostly happy cooperative ventures, but the authors have shown that females who are forced by circumstance into unsuitable pairings suffer ongoing stress," said Robert Brooks, a professor in the University of New South Wales School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences.
So is there a solution to all this? Well, the alternative is polygamous mating like peacocks where females compete to mate with the top male. Wonder how many women would agree to this. Hmmm... interesting thought to entertain. ;-)
