You know how people say that men are ALWAYS objectifying women? Well, they are. However, women do it too. From their lips, nips and hips to their toe tips, a gal will eyeball a woman as collection of body parts nearly as readily as a man, per a new study.
The good news is that the overall rate of divorce in the US is declining. The bad news is that among those fifty years of age and older, the rate of divorce has doubled over the last two decades. In 1990, married couples in this age group accounted for just one in ten divorces. In 2009, that number jumped to nearly one in four. The study also found that the divorce rate was 2.5 times higher for those in this age group who had previous marriages.
A study conducted on 100 speed-daters found that singles who acted like they were in love on speed dates were more likely to make a genuine connection with the person across the table from them. From physical affection to sharing your dirty secrets, "faking" love with someone, no matter how small the gestures, can land you in real love.
Despite the wear-and-tear on a new mother's body, the lack of sleep after a baby is born, and the constant screams of the newborn, science has found that most women are ready to get it on long before the end of the doctor-recommended six-week waiting period.
Men. The word alone evokes emotions of love, hate, annoyance, frustration and more. And why shouldn't it? In my experience, they're pretty much the hardest gender to get along with.
As if losing your job doesn't suck enough, a recent survey conducted by online dating site It's Just Lunch found that 75 percent of women wouldn't even go on a date with an unemployed man.
Well, well, well. It looks like online dating isn't as great as it's cracked up to be. And that's not surprising to me. Look around at your friends. How many of them have successfully found love online? Aren't there more horror stories than not?
If cheating itself isn't bad enough, now science confirms that cheaters, on top of being assholes, are also less likely to wrap it up before having sex with someone who isn't their partner. Gross! Let's just pour some (green, oozing) salt on that open wound, shall we?
When dealing with a case of the ex, there are generally two schools of thought. First, there's the "We're just friends, it's harmless, I only have eyes for you" group of people, who believe friendships with ex-lovers cause no real harm. On the opposite end are those (myself included) who feel that all ties with ex-boyfriends and girlfriends should be severed in order for new relationships to flourish.
Personally, I always knew that you could tell a whole lot about a person by just looking at their shoes. Dirty, beat-up Vans? Not dating that guy, or even touching him with any sort of length of pole. I'm glad that what I always knew has now finally been proven by science.
Picture this: You're on a date, things are going "meh," but then all of a sudden he puts his hand on your knee, or even worse, on your cheek. Then before you can even take stock of what's going on, you feel an instant connection and things are no longer so "meh." You're thinking that chemistry has just transpired between you, and there's no escaping it. Well, settle down, because new research shows that it's a bit of a biological trick.
A new study finds that the evolution of monogamous couples is based on two important aspects: "Weak males with inferior fighting chops and the females who opted to be faithful to them." It's thanks to this behavior (in monkeys, naturally) that we have the modern family as we know it.
While celebs like Anna Paquin and Tom Hardy have embraced their bisexuality, a new study has cast light on the problem with the label itself. In research studies, bisexuals are commonly lumped with homosexuals. But this newest study, from researchers at Indiana University, uniquely targets women who identify themselves as bi, and just how that identification affects their overall health.
