1. Is "Love In the Air"? Sending and receiving signals from scent
Casanova noted in his memoirs that "I have always found that the one I was in love with smelled good, and the more copious her sweat the sweeter I found it." Scent is a natural signal. Are you turned off by bad body odour? This is your natural warning for genetic incompatibility!
2. Humans Invented Kissing To Test For Genetic Compatibility
Our sense of smell detects molecular cues carrying information about genetic relationship and individuality. If we like the smell of someone then our biological instincts are activated, resulting in changes in our mood and social behaviour. During courtship the act of kissing allows us to get close enough to smell each other's natural body scent (Wlodarski and Dunbar., 2015).
3. Our 2nd Date Preference Is Influenced By DNA Compatibility
A recent study in an Asian American population has found the MHC-based attraction AKA "Romantic Chemistry" is just as important as personality in predicting second date offers (Wu et al., 2018).
4. Orgasm Strength and Frequency Is Influenced By Genetic Compatibility
Males perceived to have a pleasant scent by their partners have been shown to induced higher female orgasm intensity and frequency (Sherlock et al., 2016).
5. It's All About Your Children
The preference for parents with dis-similar MHC genes, increases the chances of high MHC variety and recombination in the children, leading to enhanced resilience against a variety of pathogens (Kromer et al., 2016) .
6. Genetic Incompatibility Could Influence AffairsGenetic incompatibility has been observed in Lemur couple's with partners that have similar MHC genes, in these cases partners mated with extra pair males that had more different MHC genes (Schwensow et al., 2008) .
7. DNA Compatibility Is An Essential Ingredient For Stable Relationships
If you consider the points mentioned above we have presented a compelling case for why DNA compatibility can assist in the stability of a relationship. An insightful study in Lemurs showed that pair bonds most often formed when the female and male had very different MHC class genes.
8. The Same Rules For Genetic Compatibility Influences Our Choice Of Friends
A study testing more than one million DNA data points in a population of 1,367 friendship pairs and 1,196,429 stranger pairs found that friendships were more likely to be between people most different at a few gene sets encoding the olfactory and immune system functions (Christakis and Fowler., 2014).
9. Now You Can Use DNA Matchmaking To Help Find Your Perfect Match
