Thats a really interesting article Doogs but also not that surprising I suppose with our close genetic makeup but it was interesting that it didn't look upon it as a hormone thing and it wasn't just females they looked at, it almost comes from the aging self doubt and worth that most human go through as they age. It makes your compassion for them even stronger.
Thanks for the link Doogs, I really liked that and it gives us/me a greater understanding into one of the species I have so much respect for.

Interesting article. Thanks heaps Doogs!

With this U-curve: Are they talking about from early adulthood onwards? Because as far as youth goes, teenagers often have a tough time (puberty blues).

"But there may be other things that they want like mating with more females."

Hubby to Wifey: "I'm awfully sorry, but it's just a mid-life crisis!"

I wonder if I am going through one? Does joining a forum and making ten posts a day fit the criteria?
