Why Women Have Long Memories And Men Fall In Love First
Today’s episode is the second of two bonus episodes made possible by Match. I had always wanted to interview Dr. Helen Fisher. She’s a biological anthropologist, and one of the world’s foremost experts on the science of love. She is also Match’s Chief Scientific Advisor, so they made the introduction for me.
In the first segment, which we released last week, we learned a little about Dr. Fisher personally, and we spoke more broadly about the biological mechanisms of love. In this episode, we focus on Dr. Fisher’s advice to singles looking to meet the right person, and to couples who want to stay in love for the long term.
You might want to check out Dr. Fisher’s book that she mentions in the interview: Anatomy of Love: A Natural History of Mating, Marriage, and Why We Stray (Completely Revised and Updated With a New Introduction).
That episode and this one were both made possible by Match.com. Super-big thanks to Match for their sponsorship. If you would like to take advantage of the exclusive offer they’re providing our listeners—seven days free to try their site—just go to Match.com/together.
