Bride Cancels Wedding, Breaks Up With Fiancé Over $60G Nuptials

A woman’s long-winded tirade blaming her friends and family for canceling her dream $60,000 wedding has gone viral on social media.

The bizarre story has received a massive response after being shared on Facebook and Reddit by a woman identified as the bride’s cousin.

The Facebook post starts with, “It comes with great sadness that I am announcing the cancellation of the [censored] Wedding. I apologize for cancelling only 4 days beforehand.”

The bride, identified as Susan, then reveals that she and her fiancé have broken up “due to some recent and irreparable problems” before going on to blame her friends and family for “ruin[ing] my marriage and life.”

The woman explained the couple met at 14 and worked together on her family’s farm. They then went to community college and worked and saved to “become financially stable.”

“We managed to save up nearly $15K for a wedding. Since our love was like a fairy tale, we wanted an extravagant blow out wedding, one where our son could be included,” the woman wrote. “We started touring venues and were torn between two. A local psychic told us to go with the more expensive option, and we thought why the hell not?”

The bride went on to say during her foul-mouthed rant that all the couple needed for their grand $60K wedding was “a little push.”

“Our dream wedding amounts to 60K – all included with flights to Aruba. All we asked was for a little help from our friends and family to make it happen.”

The 17-paragraph outburst said the pair “specifically asked for cash gifts” from the guests.

“How could we have OUR wedding that WE dreamed of without proper funding? We’d sacrificed so much and only asked each guest for around $1,500.”

The bride also explained she “made it CLEAR. If you couldn’t contribute, you weren’t invited to our exclusive wedding. It’s a once and a lifetime [sic] party.”

Much to the bride’s dismay, she and her fiancé quickly discovered that people were not willing to pay $1,500 to attend their special day.

“So we sent out RSVP’s and only 8 people replied and sent us the check. We were livid. How was this supposed to happen without a little help from our friends,” she wrote.

“Desperately, we resent our invites and asked people to donate what they could. I mean seriously people, what is $1,000? What is $1500? Clearly, not a lot,” she continued. “We also set up a go fund me. That only got us $250. At this point we were exhausted, tired.”

The bride said her now-ex suggested they get married in Vegas to save on costs, but she “laughed in his face.”

“He wanted those cheap, raggedy, filthy, whore like Vegas weddings,” she wrote. My ex left the room and didn’t apologize for his horrid suggestion,” she wrote.

The enraged woman then wrote that she took out her frustrations on her Maid of Honor who had promised her $5,000 before backing out.

“How could someone who offered me thousands of dollars then deny me My promised money and then tell me to shift down my budget???? She KNOWS my dream was a blowout wedding. I just wanted to be a Kardashian for a day and then live my life like normal,” she wrote. “I called her a filthy poor excuse of a friend, and hung up.”

The bride ended her rage by restating that she wanted her friends to pay for her “dream” wedding.

“How hard would it to [sic] have been to donate friends? Do I matter to you? Just give me money for my wedding. I won’t even sugarcoat. I won’t even pretend that’s not what I wanted. It was for a dream.”

Many on Reddit and Facebook asked if the post was real, commenting that it was too strange to be true.

“Is this real?!” one wrote.

“It’s too much! It can’t be real, can it?” another wrote on Reddit.

However, the bride’s cousin posted an update ensuring it was real on the Wedding Shaming forum on Facebook where she posted the original screenshots.

“Yes, this is a living breathing human being,” she wrote. “Clearly she has entitlement issues, but I have never known her to be this obnoxious.”

“Honestly, over the years she’s been nice & overall sweet. No red flags come to mind. She has humble beginnings and has been working on her parents farm since she was young,” the cousin wrote.

The bride’s cousin called out social media and her family members’ obsession with “Kardashian stuff” over the past few years as the cause for the meltdown. The cousin also felt the post may have been written while the bride-to-be was drinking.

“It’s especially vulgar and incredibly embarrassing. It was only up for maybe 15 minutes before she took it down,” the cousin wrote in the follow-up.

Several have commented on the ridiculous request from the betrothed couple. Some on Reddit even called the woman “delusional.”

“Demanding $1500 is insane,” one wrote on Reddit.

“What an entitled delusional individual. Pay for your own damn wedding. So glad he walked,” another wrote, referring to the groom.


6 pieces of dating advice your single friend is tired of hearing from you

A word of advice to people with a lot of single friends: Your friends are probably already dealing with enough without having to endure your “constructive criticism” of their love lives. (Seriously, have you seen the DMs they receive from weirdos on Tinder? Cut them some slack.)

Some advice is especially bad, even if your intentions are good. Below, you’ll find six things that are best left unsaid.

1.  ‘You just have to put yourself out there.’

Unless your friend has gone into full hibernation mode, they probably have been putting themselves out there. They probably don’t tell you everything about their love life, though. You might not be privy to the flirty coffee dates they’ve been going on with their co-worker, or the growing number of dating apps they’ve downloaded, deleted and re-downloaded in the last few months.

Trust that they’re handling the situation, even if you personally haven’t seen much progress, said Isiah McKimmie, a couples therapist and sexologist in Melbourne, Australia.

“Your friend has probably been on terrible dates, been rejected, and had people ghost them ― it can be overwhelming and they can lose their confidence,” she said. “Sometimes, people need to take some time to get their energy for dating back and find ways of meeting people that feel right to them.”

2. ‘You’re being too picky. You need to lower your standards.’

Standards exist for a reason, so be respectful of your friends’ non-negotiables. If your friend is adamant that they don’t want kids or is looking for a partner who’s their financial equal, respect those choices. Chipping away at those standards is likely to result in an incompatible match.

“When you tell a friend to lower their standards, you’re telling them to give up on essential needs they’re looking for in a partner,” said Danielle Kepler, a therapist in Chicago. “Giving up on those needs might result in dating someone who they won’t ever reach compromise with, especially if they disregard goals and dreams for their future by dating them.”

3. ‘Don’t worry about online dating. Do what you love and you’ll meet the right person organically.’

While well-intentioned, this advice is outdated. There’s no reason your single friend can’t go out and do what they love ― say, enroll in a French cooking class in the hopes of meeting a foodie cutie who can cook a mean coq au vin ― and be on the dating apps all at once.

Dating is all about casting a wide net, said Susan Pease Gadoua, a couples therapist and the co-author of The New I Do, Reshaping Marriage for Skeptics, Realists and Rebels.

“People’s time is so limited,” she said. “If your friend’s on the apps, they’re reaching a much larger pool of singles without a lot of effort. Plus, they’re weeding out prospects who don’t want the same things as them more quickly and easily. It just makes you so much more efficient in your search.”

4. ‘You need to find your soulmate. Stop settling for just anyone.’

This piece of advice is a little too prescriptive for its own good. You might be totally convinced that soulmates are a thing, but it might be an icky, eye roll-inducing concept to your single friend.

Plus, stressing your friend out about finding “The One” is only going to make their search for a decent partner even more cumbersome, said Tom Murray, a couples therapist in Greensboro, North Carolina.

“Maybe your friend will start swiping on all the apps, to feel like they’re ‘doing something,’ but it’s unlikely to be all that rewarding and it might even contribute to depression,” he said. “Instead of focusing on finding a soulmate, suggest they focus on looking for personality characteristics they like in people, such as kindness or generosity.”

5. ‘Maybe you’d have better luck if you put more effort into what you wear.’

Yes, a little effort goes a long way when you’re going on a first date or looking to meet people at the bar or an event. That said, if your friend is comfortable and looks relatively put together when they go out, don’t suggest they take the trouble to buy a whole new outfit. Let them be, and cool it with the judgment, Kepler said.

“Putting on a façade by dressing different than you usually would dress, or putting in way more effort than you usually would, is kind of like false advertising,” she said. “You shouldn’t have to drastically change your appearance to attract a partner and putting yourself in that mindset doesn’t help your self-esteem while on a date.”

6. ‘I think you’re just choosing the wrong people.’

Well, yeah. If your friend was choosing the right people, they wouldn’t be single. This piece of advice comes across as ultra-meddling. If you’re worried about the “type” your pal is chronically pursuing, it might be best to gently suggest a therapist. A professional can offer advice in a much more neutral, less judgmental way, McKimmie said.

“Your friend might really be looking for someone different, but for deeper psychological reasons, they keep repeating the same patterns,” she said. “Just trying to choose someone different doesn’t resolve the issue. If your friend keeps choosing the same kind of person and running into the same problems over and over, hopefully they’ll think about talking it through with a therapist.”

Bottom line? The best thing you can do for your single friend is to just listen. Given how disappointing (and dick pic-filled) single life can be, they’re going to need a good sounding board.

Coconut oil is ‘pure poison’ – Harvard Prof

A lecture by a Harvard professor calling coconut oil “pure poison” has gone viral on YouTube, nearing 1 million views on Wednesday.

In a talk titled “Coconut oil and other nutritional errors,” Karin Michels, who is an adjunct professor of epidemiology at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, says coconut oil is not healthy, calling it “poison” at least three times in the widely-circulated video.

“I can only warn you urgently about coconut oil,” she says. “This is one of the worst foods you can eat.”

Michels is also the director of the Institute for Prevention and Tumor Epidemiology at the University of Freiburg in Germany.

While coconut oil has been advertised as a health food of sorts, nutrition experts say there is little evidence to back that claim. Alice Lichtenstein, a Tufts University professor of nutrition science and policy who is vice chair of the federal government’s dietary guidelines advisory committee, recently told The New York Times “there’s virtually no data to support the hype.”

It’s not “poison,” but American Heart Association data has shown more than 80 percent of the fat in coconut oil is saturated — far beyond butter (63 percent), beef fat (50 percent) and pork lard (39 percent).

Donald Hensrud, medical director of the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program, told USA TODAY last year that “there’s a disconnect between people’s general beliefs and what the data actually show.” He recommends instead using oils high in monounsaturated fats (including olive oil and avocado oil) and those high in polyunsaturated fats (such as canola oil).

The AHA, which advises against the use of coconut oil, recommends eating no more than six percent of saturated fat as part of total daily calories for those who need lower cholesterol. The oil has “no known offsetting favorable effects,” the AHA said in an advisory last year, and it could actually increase LDL (“bad”) cholesterol, a cause of cardiovascular disease.

But, saturated fat is a loaded term. While the AHA warns against it, people who cut saturated fat out of their diet might not necessarily lower their heart disease risk, a 2015 BMJ review suggested. That’s because some people fill the void with sugar, white flour and empty calories. Also, some fat is important to help bodies absorb nutrients from other foods.

No alcohol safe to drink, global study confirms

Bad news for those who enjoy what they think is a healthy glass of wine a day.

A large new global study published in the Lancet has confirmed previous research which has shown that there is no safe level of alcohol consumption.

The researchers admit moderate drinking may protect against heart disease but found that the risk of cancer and other diseases outweighs these protections.

A study author said its findings were the most significant to date because of the range of factors considered.

How risky is moderate drinking?

The Global Burden of Disease study looked at levels of alcohol use and its health effects in 195 countries, including the UK, between 1990 and 2016.

Analysing data from 15 to 95-year-olds, the researchers compared people who did not drink at all with those who had one alcoholic drink a day.

They found that out of 100,000 non-drinkers, 914 would develop an alcohol-related health problem such as cancer or suffer an injury.

But an extra four people would be affected if they drank one alcoholic drink a day.

For people who had two alcoholic drinks a day, 63 more developed a condition within a year and for those who consumed five drinks every day, there was an increase of 338 people, who developed a health problem.

One of the study authors, Prof Sonia Saxena, a researcher at Imperial College London and a practising GP, said: “One drink a day does represent a small increased risk, but adjust that to the UK population as a whole and it represents a far bigger number, and most people are not drinking just one drink a day.”

The lead author of the study Dr Max Griswold, at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), University of Washington, said: “Previous studies have found a protective effect of alcohol on some conditions, but we found that the combined health risks associated with alcohol increases with any amount of alcohol.

“The strong association between alcohol consumption and the risk of cancer, injuries, and infectious diseases offset the protective effects for heart disease in our study.

“Although the health risks associated with alcohol start off being small with one drink a day, they then rise rapidly as people drink more.”

In 2016, the government cut the levels of alcohol it recommends for men and women to no more than 14 units a week – equivalent to six pints of average strength beer or seven glasses of wine.

At the time, England’s chief medical officer, Prof Dame Sally Davies, noted that any amount of alcohol could increase the risk of cancer.

‘Informed risk’

Prof Saxena said the study was the most important study ever conducted on the subject.

She explained: “This study goes further than others by considering a number of factors including alcohol sales, self-reported data on the amount of alcohol drank, abstinence, tourism data and the levels of illicit trade and home brewing.”

The study shows that British women drink an average of three drinks a day, and rank eighth in the world of highest drinkers.

British men by contrast, ranked 62nd out of the 195 countries surveyed, even though they also drink on average three alcoholic drinks a day. This is because the drinking levels were far higher generally among men, with Romanian men drinking more than eight drinks daily.

A drink was defined as 10g of alcohol, which equates to a small glass of wine, a can or bottle of beer, or a shot of spirits. In the UK one unit is 8g of alcohol. Around the world, one in three people are thought to drink alcohol and it is linked to nearly a tenth of all deaths in those aged 15 to 49.

Prof Saxena said: “Most of us in the UK drink well in excess of safe limits, and as this study shows there is no safe limit. The recommendations need to come down further and the government needs to rethink its policy. If you are going to drink, educate yourself about the risks, and take an informed risk.”

Yet Prof David Spiegelhalter, Winton Professor for the Public Understanding of Risk at the University of Cambridge, sounded a note of caution about the findings.

“Given the pleasure presumably associated with moderate drinking, claiming there is no ‘safe’ level does not seem an argument for abstention,” he said.

“There is no safe level of driving, but the government does not recommend that people avoid driving.

“Come to think of it, there is no safe level of living, but nobody would recommend abstention.”

6 things a man will only do for the woman he’s in love with

This is what sets you apart from the other women in his life.

Life is a rollercoaster ride; a mix of inconceivable, exhilarating highs and devastating, steep lows. Even though we are at different points of this amazing journey, we all are desperately searching for the One and Only to share the ride with.

But in this crazy and chaotic world, it’s not easy to tell who this person is — the One that will love you unconditionally.

How we define love differs between cultures, genders and individuals. Each of us expresses his feelings in his own unique way. But as human beings, we exhibit some similar patterns of love.

Ladies, the following are 6 things most men do only when they truly love a woman:

1. He is not afraid to show his vulnerable side

Society has long conditioned men to swallow a lot of their feelings. We all know the stereotypes: men must be the stronger sex, they are invincible, they never cry. Even though most men like to be seen in this light, they won’t be afraid to open up in front of their loved one and reveal their true colors. If you have found a guy who has no problem expressing his feeling, you’ve got yourself a keeper!

2. He sees the beauty in you every day

Although our society is dominated by distorted beauty ideals, putting on a pedestal faces masked with tons of make-up, the man that truly loves a woman will see her beauty every second of every day. Even if you believe you look like hell, don’t avoid your partner for he would be thrilled to see you even with your messy hair and your puffy eyes. He’ll cherish your perfect imperfections because at the end of the day it’s what makes you, you.

3. He makes sacrifices for your happiness

Let’s be honest for a moment — egoism is evolutionarily embedded in our nature. True love, however, prompts us to overcome this trait. If a man really loves a woman, he would sacrifice a lot to make his girl happy. But when you think of sacrifices in the name of love, do not necessarily make a comparison with Hollywood stories. Every sacrifice, no matter how small, is an expression of love. Do not miss the little things.

4. He is your biggest cheerleader

If a man truly loves you, he will be your biggest cheerleader. As he simply wants you to be happy, your success will become his success. A man in love will not compete with you, he will win with you. Even if he doesn’t always approve and understand each of your endeavors, he will know what’s important to you and will always be there. The man who loves you will be your greatest supporter and most dedicated fan.

5. He fights for your love

No matter how strong love is, the road of life is studded with obstacles that will challenge your relationship. But when a man loves you, he will fight for your relationship against all odds. He might need to draw back for a moment but remember that he’ll always come back. Because he knows that your relationship is something worth the fight.

6. He pays attention to the little things you care about

It may be the smallest or even the weirdest thing, but if it makes you happy, your man would gladly do it. He would pay attention to all those little things that make you smile and will use them to light up your day when you least expect it.



You Deserve Better Than Him (And I Think Deep Down You Know That)

I know this is probably hard for you to admit to yourself because you don’t want to believe you’re sacrificing absolute happiness to be with someone who doesn’t deserve you.

He makes you happy, I get that, but he also doesn’t treat you like you deserve. He degrades you and makes you feel worthless, especially when he turns something he did into your fault.

I know you love him with all your heart and he loves you, too. The only difference is all the love in his heart still isn’t enough.

He is giving you all the love he has, but you can still do better. All of his love still isn’t enough for you and that doesn’t make you needy, you simply love hard and you need someone who loves harder.

You need someone who you’re more compatible with, someone with the same positive outlook on life and a heart full of love to share.

There will be someone who compliments you instead of telling you that you look different. There will be someone who tells you they love you over and over again, instead of someone just repeating it on the phone back to you out of habit. There will be someone who won’t make you feel worthless, but instead pick you up when you’re feeling down. There will be someone who can complete you in all the empty ways you feel right now with him.

I know you don’t want to accept that or think about it. I know you’re happy sometimes , but with him you’ll never be more than just happy sometimes .

He can’t light up your world like you need, he can’t send insane bolts down your spine and he doesn’t stir up butterflies in your chest – with him you always know what to expect. You know what you’re going to get and no matter how many fights or conversations you have about changing and improving he won’t change and he won’t improve because he knows he has you. He knows no matter how much he messes up that you’ll still be there because you have a good heart and you care so much about people, including him, even when he doesn’t deserve it.

I know deep down when you’re upset that you know this isn’t as good as it gets. I know you know you could do better, but you’re scared to leave. You’re scared to start over because starting completely over and leaving a life and person you’re accustomed to is a scary thing.

But you’re a smart woman and either way I know you will find happiness whether it’s with him or not, you will find it within yourself.

All I ask is you please do one thing if you stay – don’t listen to him when he says those hurtful words to you when you’re fighting. Don’t feel like you aren’t deserving and that you are worthless because you are worth it . You are more than worth it and that feeling you get deep down, that feeling is right.

I’ll never tell you how to live your life, but I think you know deep down that you’re better than him and I hate to see you settling for a mediocre life instead of a life that is filled with pure bliss and happiness.

No relationship is perfect, but you can be more than just happy sometimes and that’s what you deserve.

You deserve someone to sweep you off your feet instead of you always working to please someone who is never truly happy.


Why you sometimes feel sad after $ex, even when it’s good $ex

When he was in his early 20s, Los Angeles-based writer Brandon G. Alexander often felt an inexplicable sadness after s*x, even when it was “good” s*x with people he liked.

“The best way to describe the feeling is empty or sometimes shame, depending on my relationship and intention with the person,” the 30-year-old founder of the men’s lifestyle site New Age Gents told HuffPost. “Our culture teaches men how to be physically connected to someone, but we ignore the truth that s*x is highly emotional and spiritual. The idea that a man wouldn’t feel something before, during or after s*x is unrealistic, but most have become so conditioned to think otherwise.”

What Alexander experienced years ago is what researchers call “post-coital dysphoria.” PCD, as they refer to it, is a condition marked by feelings of agitation, melancholy, anxiety or sadness after intercourse, even when it’s good, consensual s*x. The condition can last between five minutes and two hours.

It’s also called “post-coital tristesse,” which literally means “sadness” in French. In the 17th century, philosopher Baruch Spinoza summed it up this way: Once the “enjoyment of sensual pleasure is past, the greatest sadness follows.”

Many studies have examined the first three phases of the human sexual response cycle (excitement, plateau, orgasm), but the resolution phase has often been overlooked.

That’s starting to change, though. In a 2015 study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, almost half of the women surveyed reported experiencing PCD at some point in their lives, and around 5 per cent said they’d felt it regularly within the past month.

A new study from the same researchers published in June suggests that PCD is almost just as prevalent in men: In an online survey of 1,208 male participants, around 40 per cent of men said they’d experienced PCD in their lifetime, and 4 per cent said it was a regular occurrence.

In excerpts from the survey, men admit to feeling a “strong sense of self-loathing” about themselves post-s*x and “a lot of shame.” Others say they’d experienced “crying fits and full-on depressive episodes” after s*x that sometimes left their significant others worried.

Men who may suffer from PCD think that they are the only person in the world with this experience, but they should recognize that there’s a diversity of experiences in the resolution phase of s*x. Robert Schweitzer, a psychology professor at Queensland University of Technology in Australia.

Despite the number of men who reported experiencing PCD, it’s challenging for researchers to study it because most men are reluctant to talk about it, said Robert Schweitzer, the lead author on both studies and a psychology professor at Queensland University of Technology in Australia.

“Men who may suffer from PCD think that they are the only person in the world with this experience, but they should recognize that there’s a diversity of experiences in the resolution phase of s*x,” he told HuffPost. “As with many diagnoses, it provides some relief to be able to name the phenomenon.” (Schweitzer is still collecting accounts of people with PCD for his ongoing research.)

As to why it’s so common in both men and women, a study of twins suggested that genetics may play some sort of role. PCD is also often linked with $exual abuse, trauma and $exual dysfunction, but that’s certainly not always the case; in this latest study, the majority of the men who reported PCD hadn’t experienced those issues and were in otherwise healthy, satisfying relationships.

More often than not, Schweitzer thinks PCD is a culmination of both physical and psychological factors. Physically, orgasms activate a flood of endorphins and other feel-good hormones, but the neurochemical prolactin follows, resulting in a sometimes intense comedown. Psychologically, the paper establishes a correlation between the frequency of PCD and “high psychological distress” in other aspects of a person’s life.

Sometimes, the psychological factors are compounded by the knowledge that no emotional connection exists with a $exual partner, said Kimberly Resnick Anderson, a Los Angeles-based s*x therapist unaffiliated with the study.

“Some of my clients, especially males with s*x addictions, report post-coital dysphoria because deep down, they know there is no bond between them and the person they are sleeping with,” she told HuffPost.

Other times, patients worry that their partners just weren’t that into the s*x.

“If you believe your partner was just ‘taking one for the team’ and not genuinely interested in s*x, it can lead to a sense of shame and guilt,” Resnick Anderson added.

What’s important to remember, she said, is that s*x can mean different things at different stages of your life. And as these recent studies show, nuanced, complicated post-coital feelings are completely natural.

We need to have more conversations about men and intimacy. The more we tell guys it’s OK to feel ― or protect your heart by waiting to sleep with someone sometimes ― the more we’ll change the old ideas around men and s*x. Brandon G. Alexander, lifestyle writer

There may be ways to curtail the negative feelings, too: For starters, stick around rather than high-tailing it out the door after a hookup session ― or if you’re in a relationship, cuddle instead of heading to the living room to watch Netflix. A 2012 study on the resolution phase of s*x showed that couples who engage in pillow talk, kissing and cuddling after intercourse report greater $exual and relationship satisfaction.

And be honest about your emotions after s*x, without assigning blame to yourself or your partner. As the growing research shows, men and women feel a full spectrum of emotions after s*x, and that’s perfectly normal.

That’s something that Alexander, the writer who experienced PCD often in his 20s, had to learn on his own as he approached his 30s.

“As a guy, you shouldn’t numb out or try to deal with PCD in silence,” he said. “We need to have more conversations about men and intimacy. The more we tell guys it’s OK to feel ― or protect your heart by waiting to sleep with someone sometimes ― the more we’ll change the old ideas around men and s*x.”

Poor men love big breasts, the rich prefer them smaller –Study

Rich men love women with small breasts, the poor love those with big bust, study says.

There has always been the wonder of whether men prefer a bigger breasted women, or a women with a smaller chest. And it turns out, it all comes down to how much money they earn!

Two studies dating back several years have finally shed some light on the question, pointing out some surprising factors.

Psychologists Viren Swami and Martin Tovée conducted a study which investigated whether men’s access to resources would influence their preferences for breast size in women.

They carried out two experiments in which they tested whether men who lack material goods would find larger breasts more desirable than men who do have material goods.

For the first experiment, they explored the relationship between financial security and men’s preferences in breast size. They recruited 266 men from three parts of Malaysia that varied in socio-economic status – low, medium and high.

Each participant was shown animated female figures, each varying in breast size. They then rated them out of five for physical attractiveness. And it turned out, men with a lower socio-economic status found larger breasts more appealing than those with a higher socio-economic status.

They then compared breast size ratings in a second experiment which reflected upon the evolutionary perspective of breast size – being that it is a signal of a woman’s ability to bear and nurture a child. But this time, they did it based on a full stomach.

They used 66 hungry male university students, and 55 with satisfied appetites to test whether the security of food had an effect on their preferences, participating as they either entered or exited their campus cafeteria between 6pm and 7pm.

They also only used white males for this study, as ethnicity is known to influence breast size preferences.

Again, they were shown five women with varying sized breasts. And apparently, the hungry males preferred the bigger breasted women more than the satiated men.



What it means if your partner do not kiss you

Kissing spices up love-making and the number of times you kiss your partner while you are together demonstrates how strong the relationship is and how compatible you are. However, some people for various reasons would not kiss their partners or someone they’ve just met.

Let’s go through some of the reason why your partner is not kissing you.

1. Scared
Some people have heard or read elsewhere that some diseases could be contracted through kissing. These fears have engulfed some people and prevent them from kissing. If your partner is bold enough to mention this as the reason, both of you can take steps at the hospital to conduct all various tests to be cleared fit for kissing.

2. No Love
Your partner not kissing you could be a sign that he/she isn’t into you. He/she is with you for reasons best known to him/her alone. Love conquers everything and once there’s love, your partner would go beyond all odds to kiss you. Before you conclude that your partner isn’t kissing you because there’s no love, first make sure he/she doesn’t fall under the other reasons discussed here.

3. Bad Smell
Bad smell is a major reason why most people don’t want to kiss. Aside from having bad smell through poor personal hygiene, some bad mouth smells are result of a medical condition. Try smelling mouth at times by blowing out air into your palm. If you still smell bad after brushing your teeth, consult a doctor as some medical conditions in the head could be responsible.

When ‘dressing up’ for sex, wash your mouth.

4. ‘Too Hygienic’
Your partner may not kiss you because he/she is too ‘hygienic’. Some people doesn’t want to get in contact with the saliva of others and picture themselves swallowing them through kissing. It’s very difficult to deal with such people unless they are madly in love.

5. Bad Kisser
Some people who were engaged by said that they don’t enjoy kissing because they see themselves as bad kissers. Bad kissers do not enjoy kissing in anyway and they see it as a waste of time.

So before you conclude on why your partner isn’t kissing you, engage her to find out what his/her reasons are. You would be able to provide the necessary assistance once you get to know of it. If it’s personal hygiene, you work on it. If it’s medical, you seek the necessary medical attention. A bad kisser could also be trained to kiss well.
