Why men look at other women

Updated on July 19, 2014

  • Learn how a mans biology works and how it influences his behaviour.
  • Understand why men are naturally programmed to notice other women.
  • Realise he isn't always thinking what you believe he is thinking.

The Role Of The Male

Until recently in mankind's long and eventful history, we lived polygamously, meaning males would not commit themselves to a single female. In other words, he would have sex with as many females as possible. The role of the male in a tribe is to hunt, protect and ensure the tribes population doesn't diminish. In order for the male to keep his tribe populated he would spread his seed around as much as possible for maximum impact. The rules we live by today are considerably different to how it worked back then and sometimes a man's biology gets him into a little bit of trouble with his partner time to time.

You can't blame your man for having a quick glance every now and again as it is in his very nature to be attracted to women's natural curves. The way we live now and how we are naturally programmed to live are very different. Men are wired up to go from one woman to the next so when another woman comes walking by flaunting it all, his body is telling him this is his next target. However this is where women misunderstand men. A woman will naturally assume because he reacts this way, his brain is also telling him what his body is telling him. This is not true, humans are extremely adaptive and this is what allows most of us to happily live monogamously (commit to one partner). Just because he is looking at this other woman doesn't mean he doesn't find you attractive any more, or that he wants to mate with this other woman, it is simply how he is wired up to react.

It is also true women ogle men just as much as men ogle women, however due to women having much better peripheral vision than men, they rarely get caught.

I'm interested in hearing your thoughts on the matter so please comment.

Do you notice your man looking at other women?

      I can see how this could be true, And yes women ogle just as much if not more than men do. They just like you said are better at it than us. You say Channing Tatums name and about 3/4 of the woman population goes into lala land for a second lol
