How many friends does one person need?

Dunbar’s number* has it that 150 friends is about right before one starts losing track of meaningful relationships.

There are many factors influencing how one chooses friends. It could be looks, personality, aesthetic standards, etc. These are part of the external / environmental factors.

How about scent emitted by our bodies?

* Robin Dunbar introduced the Dunbar’s number to the world in his book “How many friends does one person need?”.

What makes us attracted to each other?

Beside environmental factors, we, humans like all animals, are attracted to each through scent. Wearing perfume, which is a common practice in modern times, masks our “natural scent”.

Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) is the science behind our “natural scent”. Through MHC analysis, it is now possible to be absolutely certain of our natural scents.

What is DNA Compatibility?

Using the same MHC science as used in organ transplantation, GENEmate has developed a method with the help of scientists, to assess “natural” compatibility and enhance the process of looking for friends and seeking out the most compatible lifetime partner.

Compatibility = Dissimilar MHC Genes
(C = DMG)
