Charles Darwin and Online Dating

To commemorate the 200th anniversary of Darwin's birth and the 150th anniversary of the publication of On the Origin of Species, Discovery Magazine published a special series of articles examining Darwin's impact on modern perceptions of the world. In an article titled We all Live in Darwin's World, the work of Rutgers University biological anthropologist Helen Fisher is discussed. Fisher is a best-selling author of books on love and an advisor to online dating service Chemistry.com. For the dating service, she created a questionnaire based on years of research on the science of romantic attraction. Fisher used the principles of evolutionary psychology, a field with its roots in Charles Darwin's theories.
