Betrayed in love? Relax, you’ll find a better one



Women are more sensitive than men and it seems very difficult to move forward when ditched and betrayed in love. The trust level on every one almost gone. If you are in tears later than a break-up then just chill because researchers are of the view that women who are ditched in love, in the end, become bold and stronger to find a better mate in future.

There are results of female intrasexual mate competition that perhaps both evolutionarily adaptive and as well useful for personal growth and development.

A lady who “loses” her mate to a further woman will experience a phase of post-relationship anguish and disloyalty. Craig Morris from Binghamton University in the US stated that “But she will come out of the experience with higher mating intelligence that allows her to better detect cues in future mates that may indicate low mate value. Hence, in the long-term, she wins,”

Morris further stated in the paper cited in the Oxford Handbook of Women and Competition that “The ‘other woman’ conversely, is now in a relationship with a partner who has a demonstrated history of deception and likely, infidelity. Thus, in the long-term, she loses,”

The team from Binghamton University and University College London organized an online survey of 5,705 contestants from 96 countries. The research emphasizes the orders in which humans — women, especially — have modified themselves to deal with break-ups.

Morris further stated that “If we have evolved to seek out and maintain relationships, then it seems logical that there would be evolved mechanisms and responses to relationship termination, as over 85 percent of individuals will experience at least one in their lifetime,”

Morris continued by saying that “They can learn that they are not alone — that virtually everyone goes through this, that it’s okay to seek help if needed and that they will get through it,”
