Dating Apps and The New Polygamies

Reading The Overlong AVI Posts. An introduction to reading these long series I get going on every once in a while.  This won't be necessary for some of you who are long-time readers who have already made your adjustments.


This is the complete set, in reading order instead of blog order, and I will do the same underneath. I had a lot of fun with this, even though it has owned me for over a week. All should know going in that a lot of this is about the biological reality of both male and female strategies, how we follow them much more than we admit - even when we swear we are doing the opposite - and how they are playing out over the last couple of centuries.  It is more focused on the last sixty years, and only after all that is packed in do I look at how dating apps are changing things.

This is mostly the previous content, but I think it is clearer and some of it is new. Your previous comments are under the Links post or the Answers post.

With 60's music. I am noticing that all this talk about mating strategies seems to suggest the 60s to me. I can't imagine why. I was well into the 1970's before...never mind.

Acceptance of Polygamy  - New Stuff

Apparently the change is already happening, with cultural conservatives leading the doing of it and progressives leading the acceptance of it.  Not what I would have predicted, but I see it.
