No wonder the ZZ Top guys get all the chicks.
According to a new study, women are the most attracted to guys with FULL BEARDS . . . because they think they’re the best bet for a long-term relationship.
The researchers think it’s because beards are a biological sign of being tough, masculine, aggressive, and having high social status . . . and all of those things are worth a lot of points in a long-term relationship.
But what about when women aren’t looking to settle down and just want to have a good time? They STILL prefer someone with facial hair over someone clean-shaven . . . only they prefer stubble.
In other words, being clean-shaven really doesn’t get you anywhere.
A New Company Will Give You a Loan For Your Wedding . . . and You Only Pay It Back If You Get Divorced
Ask any couple if their marriage will last forever, and they’ll tell you “Of course!” But how many would be willing to bet big money on that? There’s a crazy new startup that’s going to find out.
A company in Seattle called SwanLuv will give you a loan for your wedding of up to $10,000. And you don’t have to pay it back unless you get DIVORCED. Then you owe them the money . . . plus interest.
The CEO of SwanLuv says they ran the numbers, and they CAN be profitable with this model. Quote, “It comes back to statistics. We have the right odds so we’ll be okay.” But he thinks the the odds aren’t TOO crazy, so people will still bite.
When you apply, they’ll evaluate how strong a couple you are. Then they base the amount of the loan and your interest rate off that. There will also be clauses . . . like if the marriage ends because of abuse, the abuser has to pay the full amount.
If you’re interested, you can pre-register at SwanLuv.com . . . that’s spelled S-W-A-N-L-U-V. They’ll officially start giving out loans in March.
Being a good parent is equal parts drill sergeant, cook, doctor, house cleaner, and human waste removal specialist. So it’s good to see at least a few people are realizing those are all valuable skills.
A new Mother’s Day survey by CareerBuilder.com found 8% of women now include their parenting skills on their resume.
The survey also found companies are pretty receptive to it . . . 69% of employers say that the stuff you do as a parent does qualify as relevant experience for a job.
The five parenting skills that translate best into the corporate world are: Patience . . . multitasking . . . time management . . . conflict management . . . and problem solving.
In spite of that . . . only 52% of moms who work say they’re equally successful in their careers and their family life. 34% say they’re more successful at parenting . . . 16% say they’re doing better at their job.
