Question
Does sexual selection apply to humans and if it does how so?

Answer
It sure does Adam. And it appears that our hormones have a lot to do with it. It seems that each sex is searching for a mate. The factors involved in making a selection are mostly physical. It is said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder >Millions of dollars are spent by both men and women in order to  catch the eye of another.
Of course there are other factors that cannot be explained. I met my wife on a blind date and I was hooked right away. We have been together for 65 years
