Eveline Vincke on the cover of the community magazine 'Dare to Think': on the biology of love

(07-02-2018) Valentine's Day is turning February into pink red again. But prehistoric reflexes are hidden underneath the romanticism...

In the February edition of the community magazine 'Dare to Think' Prof. Dr. Eveline Vincke from our department explains why the love of your life might have chosen you because you had a drink too much that night...

"One of the factors that women are unaware of when choosing a sexual partner is risky behavior," says Eveline Vincke, who is dedicated to research on unhealthy consumer behavior, such as smoking and drinking, within the Department of Communication Sciences. "Men who take risks, certainly physically, are seen as stronger, making them sexually more attractive, showing courage, which is good for their status and their place in the hierarchy."
