University of Rochester psychologists tested how different colors affected men’s attitudes towards women in five different experiments. In one, the color of a woman’s shirt was digitally changed from red to blue. The men were asked, “Imagine that you are going on a date with this person and have $100 in your wallet. How much would you be willing to spend on your date?” When the woman was wearing a red shirt, more men rated her attractive and sexually desirable, and they were more likely to take her out on an expensive date.

Whenever you get out of a relationship, do you think to yourself, “My next boyfriend is going to…” and then start a wish list traits you’d like this imaginary person to possess? For example, in high school I dated a guy who had very small feet and walked with them angled out. After we broke up, I thought, “My next boyfriend is not going to have small feet or walk like a duck.” When you’re with someone, you don’t let yourself think about what bothers you about them, but once the two of you are over, you start realizing what you want that they couldn’t give you.

Researchers found that 20 percent of men and 15 percent of women under 35 admitted to being unfaithful. What’s interesting is that they don’t know whether women are actually cheating more, or if we’ve always done so but are finally fessing up to our infidelities. Would you be honest about being an honest women if a researcher asked you whether you’ve cheated? [NY Times] Keep reading »
On last night’s “Gossip Girl,” Jenny started hanging out with a crowd that dances in their underwear while being photographed — scandalous! Nate was acting like an overprotective older brother until Jenny laid one on him and the two started making out hard-core on the sidewalk. I’m not sure whether you can tell from the above clip, but the kissing was really jerky. Taylor Momson (Jenny) and Chace Crawford (Nate) try their best to make the kiss look passionate, but it just looks artificial. Maybe because Taylor is 15 and Chace is 23. Keep reading »
