  • Women decide whether or not they like a guy within 15 minutes of meeting them.

  • That's a full 14 minutes and 59 seconds longer than YouTube viewers.

  • Welcome to DNews, I’m Ross Everett.

  • Women’s intuition, aside from being the name of my new fragrance line, is a very powerful thing.

  • Not unlike my new fragrance line.

  • From the moment a woman lays eyes on a possible mate they're analyzing their traits, deciding "Do I want my offspring to have these?"

  • How do we knows this? Well, findings from the Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland Ohio has been doing experiments on the brains of fruit flies.

  • Ross, are you saying that women have the brains of fruit flies? Not at all...Men do too.

  • Here's a fun little factoid.

  • Fruit flies are often used for research because they share 60 percent of human genes.

  • So when someone says you have a flea brain, they're not far off.

  • Our brains share six of the same chemicals that transmit messages as well as have the same division of regions that process sound, sight and smell.

  • Think about that next time you're about to make a big decision.

  • When studying these fruit fly brains, scientists identified one single gene that when mutated, rendered a female completely incapable of deciding on a mate, even when a male is trying really hard...the poor guy.

  • You're not gonna get it. It's already been decided.

  • From there, scientists were able to map this courtship gene to a small number of excitatory neurons located in just three distinct regions of the brain.

  • Two of which, they never even knew had anything to do with mating behavior.

  • So it's that tiny number of neurons that help a lady-fly decide whether she's impressed by all of his dancing, and singing and pheromone-releasing.

  • And if it takes a male any longer than 15 minutes to win her over...pretty much a "no."

  • So if you wanna get a big consensual "YES" from a partner, remember that always put your most exciting foot forward.

  • And if you get rejected, maybe it's not you, maybe it's just her excitatory neurons are just malfunctioning.

  • Do you find yourself gravitating towards more exciting options? Let me know in the comments down below.

  • Now in California they're flipping no means no on it's head and throwing it's legs over their shoulders consensually, of course, as they've embraced a new position on what it means to give consent.
