A counter-theory: SMV might be biased towards bone, metabolism, and facial metrics in the short term, and GFP + g-factor (turning to some kind of SES factor) for the long run. Very tempted to bet heritability rates are 65%~70% and 80% perceptively.

see John Archer's study on male female differences. Under mate preferences (I think these are for LTR's) the male female differences, measured by Cohen's d, are:

Male preference: good cook/housekeeper, good looks, chastity

Female preference: age, financial prospects, ambitiousness/industriousness, social status/dominance

These are relative preferences (male:female) so this doesn't mean chicks all dig old dudes. Just means men lean strongly towards youth, females are open to significant age difference.
