Meetings and Lectures

Wantage Cafe Scientifique - Wantage


Are there gender differences in perceptions of attraction? What are we looking for in a potential mate? What other features make us more or less attractive? Join us as Dr Martin Graff (University of South Wales) examines work on attraction and why attraction is important to us. He will cover how our levels of attractiveness are perceived to alter at certain times, in addition to the utility of studying attraction and the other positive features which are related to levels of attraction.  The talk will also look at online dating, and conclude by considering differences between males and females in what they seek in a romantic partner!
