The one that got away. That missed connection. The almost-love match... If you've ever experienced romantic regret, you have a whole lot of company. Researchers at the Northwestern University and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign recently surveyed 370 American adults, ages 19 to 103, about their biggest regrets in life. What did the participants most wish for? A love do-over.
The version of Jane Eyre in theaters now reminds me of why so many people love Charlotte Bronte's love story. Jane (Mia Wasikowska) is the ultimate Plain Jane, with hat hair, dingy dresses and a stoic face. She's bright and good, but life deals her some very hard knocks. All in all, the latest adaptation of Charlotte Bronte's classic makes for good cinema. But is it a date movie?
Despite what most people believe, married couples don't become more alike over time, according to researchers at Michigan State University. Instead, people tend to choose spouses who have similar personalities and character traits, the study suggested.
Behind every great man is a great woman and Sandra Torres is tired of standing behind her husband, Guatemalan President Alvaro Colom. So much so that she wants to be the one who succeeds her husband in office when his term ends this coming fall
Guys, would you rather lose your hair or lose your sexual prowess? Sounds like a pretty rotten deal, but a new study shows that men who take medication for hair loss risk losing something particularly valuable in return. The research, which was published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine this month, says that 5 to 23 percent of men who took the prescription drug finasteride (sold as Propecia) may suffer impotence, low libido, erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation and an inability to orgasm.
In the grand scheme of things, it's only a year. He's not going to war and from what I know, computer programming is not the most dangerous profession. I've got trips to look forward to, great friends to drink with, and myself to take care of. I'll definitely have my sad moments, but I'm taking this with a grain of sugar, if you will, and making it into a growing experience. As much for me as it will be for him.
Screen legend Elizabeth Taylor passed away on March 23 at the age of 79. The cause was congestive heart failure—which seems a little crazy to us. Throughout her rich lifetime, Liz's heart never failed her. She leaves behind an unparalleled legacy of love. She might have been known for her many marriages, but her relationships extended beyond that of a spouse. A humanitarian, friend and mother, as well, Taylor taught us time and time again about the lessons we can learn through each love and each relationship.
In this day and age, it seems like every one of my friends is on the birth control pill. However, unlike most girls, most of my friends went on the pill to have sex at the end of high school, and simply stayed on it to enter college. And while most people know the basics of birth control, few people ever bother to read the fine print. So here are some of the most important things that you should know (i.e. all the stuff that’s on that little packet of info you throw out every month):
They say a picture is worth a thousand words but for British couple Martin and Heidi Shubrook, a video is worth a thousand dollars. When Martin and Heidi received their video, all they saw was grass. Literally. Plus other shots that were taken at odd-angles. So, they did what any couple would do: they sued. The two were awarded $1,000 for the mishap.
Have you ever wondered why men behave the way they do? Silly question. Of course you have. In his "Dear Women" letter, humorist Streeter Seidell aimed to clear a few things up. He explained some baffling male phenomena for us, like why men don't seem the least bit thrilled by a cute baby at the mall (it just isn't his baby) or the reason for their extreme horniness (equivalent to a female period, it's nature-induced so they can reproduce… oh, fine). We were enlightened, folks. So when he issued a call to women asking for any insights into the female brain, we felt we should write back. It's only fair. So, to all the guys out there, we hope our letter clears a few things up for you, as well.
