According to researchers at the University of Granada, women are more likely to comply with a man's request-even a derogatory one-if he flashes his pearly whites.Read More »from The Sneaky Motive Behind His Smile
By Meagan Morris
In the study, a man doled out commanding instructions to various women. The women did what he asked (and often adopted a submissive posture) if he smiled while he made his request. Researchers theorize that a smile gives off an air of friendliness-dubbed as "perceived warmth."

Researchers analyzed men with anosmia (aka no sense of smell) to see how the disorder affected their lives. As a result, they found that men who could smell better, had an average of nine sexual partners in their lifetime. Meanwhile, men with poor sense of smell averaged three.

Hm. Scientists believe that it's because sense of smell is linked to our emotions. Most of those who suffer from anosmia, are generally more insecure because they can't smell things properly. So... they don't know if they have bad breath, stinky armpits, and etc. Thus, making them socially awkward. This behavior then lingers into the dating world, causing these men to rarely go out with girls.

How to tell if he's He may leave his dirty socks on the floor, but at least he opens the door for you. When it comes to relationships, you take the good with the bad. But when you're dating a guy you think just might be Mr. Right, how do you determine if he's really the one you're destined to spend the rest of your life with?
We went to the experts to find out how to tell if a guy truly is Mr. Right-or just Mr. Right Now. Here are five tests your soulmate must pass.
1. The chivalry test: Patti Stanger, Millionaire Matchmaker, author, and Bravo TV star, says chivalry is not dead-at least not when it comes to the 'good' ones.

I think I have heard enough of it.
This world says so knowingly, "You should not need, not attach. You should be fine, wonderful, content with just yourself..."
I say instead, "Enough. I've heard enough." I will not be able to live in this particular version of the world any longer because I find that all that world does-is make me feel as if something is inherently wrong deep inside me. I shall instead live in this world I am surrounding myself in...one where I am connected.

When a friend forwarded me a link this morning for a "YouTube song breakup announcement," I was ready to hate it. The video features musician Jonathan Mann - who has a project where he records a new song every day and posts the product online - announcing that he and his girlfriend of five years, Ivory King, are breaking up. I was expecting something self-indulgent and cheesy. Instead, I found something beautiful, heartbreaking, and all too relatable.
"Jonathan and Ivory have been together for five years," reads the text at the beginning of the video. "This is their final song as a couple." Watch it here:
