Science Says Men & Women Process Emotions Differently

Men and Women

A study by the University of Basel discovered there’s some truth to the cliched belief that men and women process their feelings differently. Maybe John Gray was on to something?  The study, which will be published in the Journal of Neuroscience, “focused on determining the gender-dependent relationship between emotions, memory performance and brain activity.” The results show that women find intense imagery more emotionally stimulating than men, and are more likely to remember those images.

This 108-Year-Old Woman Says The Key To Health Is Avoiding Men

We Don't Disagree
Jessie
"I've Never Had To Depend On Anybody"

Jessie Gallan, the oldest woman in Scotland, celebrated her 108th birthday on January 2. Gallan was born on a farm, in a tiny two-room cottage, and then went on to work at a hotel that was visited by the Queen and the Queen Mother during her time on staff there. Her tip to lead such a long, healthy life has nothing to do with kale or anti-aging cream. She told the Daily Mail, “My secret to a long life has been staying away from men. They’re just more trouble than they’re worth.” Oh, and porridge. “I also made sure that I got plenty of exercise, eat a nice warm bowl of porridge every morning and have never gotten married.” Great tip, Jessie!

Dater X: Love Is About Choice, Not Chance

Dater X: Love Is About Choice, Not Chance

I’m convinced that 2015 is going to be a year of learning for me. We’re only a few weeks into the new year, and I like to think I’ve already discovered quite a few things about myself, big and small, both in life and in love. But it wasn’t until I got together with my friend Bree for drinks and we got to talking about relationships that I realized that in all of my years of failures and successes, awkward dates and silly mishaps, and love and loss, that I have maintained one constant through it all: I always, ALWAYS  choose to love.

Make It Stop: “I Can’t Stop Being Jealous Of My Boyfriend’s Ex”

Make It Stop: "I Can't Stop Being Jealous Of My Boyfriend's Ex"

My boyfriend, Sven (not his real name), and I have been together for about seven months. And while he’s incredible, there’s just one thing that makes me uncomfortable. My BF is very close with his ex-girlfriend Veronica (not her real name either). They hang out with each other one-on-one, share a circle of friends and common interests, they dated through college and even lived together.

I like this girl, and I want to be capable of forming a friendship with her, for both my boyfriend’s happiness and my own peace of mind. But every time I am put in a social situation with her, I freeze up, internally panic, and start comparing myself to her. Veronica is pretty, funny, and I can totally envision her and my boyfriend as having been/being a couple. I think she picks up on this vibe, which I find completely mortifying. Keep reading »

Why Labels For Sexual Identities Are Useful For Everyone

Remember back in 2007, when a woman married the Eiffel Tower? She’s in a relationship with a German tower crane now. There was a documentary that followed her during her commitment ceremony to the good ol’ Tour Eiffel, and that documentary ruined her relationship with the monument. The staff of the Tower refused to associate with her anymore, and she lost her sponsorships as a professional archer. She had to break up with her one great love, move to Germany, and rebound with the Berlin Wall. She’s working as a tower crane operator now, and is falling in love with her crane.

No, this isn’t magical realist fiction, or something. Erika Eiffel’s sexuality is oriented toward objects (it’s called objectum sexuality). She explained to VICE:

“Children are picking up on all these sensations from everything around them. But as they get older that is unlearned. They’re told, ‘This is an it.’ As a child I was always very connected to objects. I used to carry this little plank of wood with me everywhere I went and as a kid people think that’s cute. But as you get older, their view changes.”
