Date Doomed By Bad Dancing?

Is clumsy dancing grounds for automatic romantic elimination? Yes, according to Dr. Pam Spurr, a UK-based relationship expert. In her article for the Times Daily, she advises readers to "beware of dancing, or the display of any other behavioral oddities, when you first meet."

Big Smilers Are Less Likely To Divorce

A recent study published in the journal of Motivation and Emotion dares to say those who smiled more in school yearbook photos (of all things) stand a better chance of marrying and never divorcing.Scientists rounded up a random group of adults, thumbed through their yearbooks and rated the intensity of their grin on a scale from 1-10. Once finished, they quizzed each on their marital status and found those in the top 10% (the 10's) were most likely to be still married, where those in the bottom 10% (the scowlers or Blue Steele Zoolanders) were often divorced. They then asked a group of adults who were all over 65 to submit photos of themselves at around the age 10. Again, 11% of the big cheesers were divorced, in contrast to 31% of the stoic posers or frowners.
