ADDICTED TO LOVE?

According to a love addiction expert on the Today Show this morning, men fall in love faster than women do and 3 out of 4 jilted lovers who end up taking their own lives are men.
Somehow, I'm not buying that.

I wouldn't be surprised at this finding. men are socialized to control/not show their feelings so of course some of us would doubt the findings.

do you then fall in love faster then a man?

SabilaK said...

Ew. No. I don't believe in romantic love. It's the stuff of poets. I do believe in poets though.....hm.

SabilaK said...

All that being said, the thought of it is nice...well, the poetry, anyway.

SabilaK said...

Am I making any sense?

SabilaK said...

I won't lie: I fall in love with the idea of love very quickly. But I don't want to believe in love.

Can anyone say verbal diarrhea?

I believe this. Female jilted lovers survive. We may even live to love again. Men are pansies.

We females have an outlet to express feelings of utter despair, finish boxes of tissues without raising an eyebrow, and have some chocolate after that. Then the sun peeks from behind the clouds, and someday we'll smile again :)

I totally believe this one...for reasons I won't explain.

I too love falling in love. I just know how to stay in love.

zee said...

could it be a ploy that men fall in love so fast so that that they can hit the sack asap?

speaking of "buying" this finding, i've figured out why 3 out of 4 men commit suicide.

they don't.

they're murdered by their life insurance-claiming-self-serving-gold-digging-money-hungry skanks for wives.

AinA, you disappoint me.

72 virgins in heaven....or a fat,ungrateful wife/girlfriend. 72 virgins it is! (speaking for the Muslim men that may have taken their life).
