Men and women have different ways to make up after a disagreement, says a recent study. Springer International Publishing expands, “If a man wants to make amends with his girlfriend after an argument, he should dedicate quality time and shed a few tears while asking for forgiveness. However, these are not the best ways for a woman to make up with her boyfriend; men consider a kind gesture or receiving sexual favors as the best form of apology. This was revealed in a study led by T. Joel Wade of Bucknell University in the US. Overall, it was found that showing emotional commitment is the best way of reconciling a conflict between romantic partners, but that there are systematic differences in how men and women prefer this to be put into practice. The findings were published in Springer’s journal Evolutionary Psychological Science.”
The Independent puts the study into laymen’s terms: Sex after an argument is not always good for you.
