"The sex drive evolved to motivate ancestral men and women to seek sexual union with a range of partners; romantic love evolved to enable them to focus their courtship energy on a preferred mate; thereby conserving mating time and energy; attachment evolved to enable them to rear a child through infancy together." -Helen Fisher

'... evolved to motivate ancestral men and women' - how anthropocentric ;-). I'd bet Fisher's three forms of love evolved well before the first man met the first woman.
Well Helen Fisher is a biological anthropologist so I'd expect her to have a human bias. ;-)
Any self-respecting scientist would be trying very hard to free themselves of experimenter bias.
Very true ;-). But self-respecting scientists would also use large experimental samples to mitigate bias.
Very true ;-)
