I can't count how many times on this site that the "human nature", "caveman/woman days.
Men want to spread their seed, women are drawn to strength and power in men, etc.
Some people act like we're STILL unsocialized animalistic creatures that have no control over our natural urges.
Imo, somebody talking about their "human urges" taking over their thought processes and socialization is a weak cop-out to justify their behavior...like people REALLY can't control themselves if they really wanted to.
My question is...do you think that this "human nature" argument is over-used when it comes to justifying/explaining behavior in modern dating?

it is true to say that our biological wiring has not caught up with what society now expects from us, hence people are tempted (more often guys than girls) to cheat in relationships. however, I don't think that it should be used as an excuse. the difference between humans and animals is the ability to think logically about the consquences of our actions, and therefore while we might have "animalistic urges", as humans we are able to overcome them.2
