Why Guys Have A Hard Time Saying The L-Word

When it comes to saying “I love you,” one writer reports, men are universally conflicted. If asked how many times they’ve been in love, some men can’t make up their minds. He loves you? He loves you not? Sometimes, he’s not too sure. After all, it’s not easy for either sex to differentiate between love and lust, intimacy and infatuation, what the mind wants to believe and what the heart insists is true. When Mick Jagger was asked how many times he’d fallen in love, he deemed the question “stupid.” Boy George, in contrast, said his number was zero. So, how can men and women tell if they’re really, truly in love? When “the words ‘I love you’ tumble from you like obscenities from the mouth of a Tourette’s sufferer.” Sounds like true love to me.

Study: Pain Hurts More If The Person Hurting You Means It

We poke a lot of fun at silly studies on The Frisky, but occasionally one comes along that’s actually interesting and insightful. Researchers at Harvard University have discovered that our experience of pain depends on whether we think someone caused the pain intentionally. Participants in the study were given electrical shocks and asked to rate the level of pain they experienced. When those participants believed the electrical shock was delivered intentionally rather than on accident, they rated that shock as more painful. This made me think about whether the same thing would apply to emotional pain and not just physical pain. Does it feel worse when someone hurts your feelings on purpose rather than on accident? Think about heartbreak — does it feel worse when the heartbreak happens as a result of someone doing something hurtful, like cheating? [Science Daily] Keep reading »

The Last 31 Days Of 2008: Get A Sweet Tooth

Since we are all going to resign ourselves to lose weight as our New Years Resolution, I might as well finish out my 2008 eating like a greedy girl. My total obsession is sweets. Cookies, ice cream, cupcakes. Love them all and could probably OD on chocolate all day long. I don’t need to eat a balanced diet with Godiva in my life.
