Having Kids Chemically Bonds Couples

A recent study out of Israel suggests a man's oxytocin levels may actually be on par with their wives/girlfriends during the child rearing process. Researchers drew blood from 80 couples who were raising a six-week old baby and found identical amounts in their blood stream. As the child matured to six months, the scientists once again analyzed the levels and found the same result. It seems that a mother and father's oxytocin levels rise together while they watch their wee one grow.

Attraction At First Eye Contact?

Can one possibly tell within the first ten seconds of meeting if there's a mutual attraction? The journal Archives of Sexual Behavior seems to think so, even pinpointing the exact time to a tenth of a second. Not surprisingly, men are ridiculously easy to read. Researchers say that on the first meeting if he breaks your gaze at the four second mark, he's just sort of "eh' about you. Yet if the initial eye contact extends to the 8.2 second mark than he's into you. Women on the other hand, notoriously confusing in nature, will give equal eye contact to men they're into and ones they aren't, say scientists. This information was culled from 115 students, secretly being filmed, meeting actors and actresses for the first time. While the cameras filmed the meeting, scientists analyzed the tapes and later quizzed the students on whom they were most physically attracted. In conclusion, they theorize men use eye contact as a form of mating, while women—who, let's be honest, aren't really the aggressors anyway—shy away from overt eye contact to subconsciously avoid unwanted attention.
