Science Says Doing THIS On A First Date Makes You Sexier

Science Says Doing This On A First Date Makes You Sexier

Attraction is a funny thing. The qualities you think make someone the hottest thing on the planet might make your best friend give you some serious side-eye. What makes one person attracted to another person can be so varied, and that’s what makes it such an interesting subject—which is probably the reason why scientists and researchers are constantly doing different studies about it.

These studies usually give us some pretty obvious information (like research that says that a good personality ultimately makes you seem more appealing), but some of them introduce surprising new clues on what helps make others fall for us, and that’s when things get interesting.

Dealbreaker: He Drank Beef Tea

The day I learned that J. enjoyed a nice, hot cup of “beef tea” was the day I realized this guy most definitely wasn’t the one. As anyone outside of the UK might not know, we have this strange meat spread called Bovril. Said viscous, meaty paste can be added to boiling water to create a beefy hot beverage. Yum?

10 Lessons You Learn From The Assholes In Your Life

10 Lessons You Can Learn From The Assholes In Your Life

The world is filled with assholes. They are everywhere. They hit your parked car without leaving a note, cut you off while waiting in line at Whole Foods and literally knock you out of the way on their mad dash to the subway, so you face the closed doors instead of them.

A**holes aren’t limited to random strangers and non-innocent bystanders. I’m also talking about the assholes who cleverly disguise their insults as jokes. They do something just nice enough so you brush off their negative comment. Maybe he didn’t really mean it. Maybe he isn’t that bad of a person, or he had a bad day, or he – No. He’s just an asshole, plain and simple. Read more on Huffington Post Women…

Life After Dating: Splitting The Holidays

Life After Dating: Splitting The Holidays

My parents separated during my senior year of high school. That was bad enough, not because I was upset at the time about them separating, but because that first holiday season was weird — my dad was there, but only begrudgingly on my mom’s part — and once the divorce proceedings started and things got ugly, we started having to split up the holidays. My dad had moved to Madison, Wisconsin, while my mom had the house in a Chicago suburb that we’d grown up in, so it was easier for my sisters and I to do Christmas stuff with my mom. But it was a balancing act.

It got worse when I got into a relationship with my now-ex, the year I graduated from high school, because his family was intensely territorial about holidays and easily offended. So I had to see my dad, I had to see my mom and sisters, I had to see my ex’s mom and siblings, and, if possible, we’d spend time with his dad, too, but not always. Two sets of divorced parents is a pain in the ass. It’s bad when it’s two sets of parents, period, but four gets extreme. My dad has learned to work around this problem by doing family get-togethers before or after the actual holiday. Keep reading »

5 Adorable Behaviors That Mean Your Dog Hates You

5 Adorable Behaviors That Mean Your Dog Hates You

Once upon a time, a bunch of prehistoric horror-wolves realized that the clumsy species of spear-flinging monkeys they were snacking on would trade belly rubs and a place by the fire if they occasionally mauled something on command. Since then, man and canine have peacefully waltzed together through the annals of time. Thanks to this relationship, most people think they’re pretty good at understanding dogs: when a pup wags its tail, it’s happy; when it whines, it’s unhappy. That’s why we love dogs — they actually have something like human emotions (unlike cats, who feel only cold contempt, all the time). Read more on Cracked…
