Its happened to everyone of us. We go to a club, and our wandering eyes take on the task of looking out for the good stock. We often find ourselves pairing up with strangers, which in this case really means, people we've just been introduced to. We talk for abit, dance a little bit more, maybe a couple of drinks here and there, and the next thing you know, we've hooked up.
According to a study, this may actually have an explanation to it. The study shows that men and women who inhale a whiff of the hormone oxytocin rate strangers as more attractive. From ABC news:
"we are more likely to see people we don't know in a more positive
light," says Angeliki Theodoridou, a psychologist at the University of
Bristol, UK, who led the new study.
While tests are not always conclusive of what we can believe, I do think that strangers have a slighthly larger appeal and our appetite for curiosity is what makes her human, or at least, woman. I'm sure the same thing goes for men, prefering someone new over a friend to make "friendly" times with.
The article followed with "Theodoridou's study did not examine how oxytocin could affect social
judgements, but she speculates that the hormone dampens brain activity
in a region involved in processing fearful emotions, called the
amygdala." This hence, could also contribute to how we sometimes don't use logic as a compass to straight thinking.
Hormones or not, I'd prefer a stranger over a friend, anytime of the day. But till then, science still wins in explanation.
