8 Words That Give A Liar Away!!!!
"Left"
When he uses this word (think: "I left the bar at six" vs. "I went home at six"), there's some kind of drama involved. Maybe he got stuck in traffic or is hiding something he did that he shouldn't have.

"Never"
The big thing to look out for is when he says "never" when "no" will do. It's a sign he's overcompensating. For example, if you ask, "Did you just look at that girl's butt?" and he says, "Never!"

"That"
Like never, it depends on how he uses it. If he puts "that" in front of a noun, like "that woman" or "that money," it's a subconscious attempt for him to distance himself from the word. This is a common trick of manipulators.

"Would"
If he skips "no" and goes straight to "I would never do something like that!" when talking about a past event, be wary. For example, "Are you still talking to your ex?" "I would never do that to you!" "Would never" suggests that he plans to do it in the future.

"Yes, ma'am"
If your guy is a Southern gentleman, then this doesn't apply. But if he suddenly says "ma'am" to you out of nowhere, be cautious. It's a sign that he's feeling stressed and knows he's in trouble.

"By the way…"
Liars use phrases like this to try to minimize what they say next—but usually it's what's most important to the story. Pay extra attention to what he says afterward.


"But"
Liars usually try to downplay what they say with this word, so pay attention when he says something like, "I know this is going to sound strange, but…" or "I know you think I'm lying, but…"

"Why would I do that?"
It's a favorite stalling line of liars, so they can buy a little time to work out what to say next. These phrases also fit the bill: "What kind of person do you think I am?” "Are you calling me a liar?” and "I knew this was going to happen to me!"

Do you HATE spending you $$$ ????
We've got the results of a new poll about things we hate spending money on, and one thing is clear. We hate spending money on weddings, we hate spending money on bills . . . but we REALLY hate spending money on our SIGNIFICANT OTHERS.



--The NUMBER ONE thing people hate spending on is . . . buying things for their husbands, wives, girlfriends, or boyfriends. Here's the full top 10:



#1.) Buying things for our significant others.

#2.) Your own wedding costs.

#3.) Buying wedding presents for other people.

#4.) BIRTH CONTROL. Although it's a lot cheaper than the alternative.

#5.) Retirement contributions.

#6.) Bachelor or bachelorette parties.

#7.) Utility bills.

#8.) Work clothes.

#9.) Car insurance.

#10.) The dentist.



--Things that finished just outside the top 10 are throwing in for a coworker's birthday present or card, grocery bags, gas, and tolls.

What do you consider a friend???
I am FINALLY above average on something!!!!  I've got the results here of a major survey on adult friendships. By that I mean friendships in adult life here are the highlights . . .



#1.) The average adult has FIVE close friends.


#2.) But . . . we have an average of 50 to 100 Facebook friends, and at least 50 numbers of friends in our phone. Still . . . just FIVE close friends.


#3.) About one in eight men and one in six women say there's at least one person in their friend group they HATE.


#4.) Women are more likely to still have a best friend from when they were in school. 34% of women say they have a lifelong best friend they met as a kid, versus 16% of men.


#5.) 33% of women now have a real friendship with someone from their childhood they reconnected with on Facebook. Only 5% of men have done that.

Nothing is uncomfortable to me but maybe you???

--Here are the 10 topics we don't like discussing, and the percentage of people who are uncomfortable talking about them.

#1.) Our sex lives: 32% said they were uncomfortable discussing it.

#2.) Our infidelity: 31%.

#3.) The state of our finances: 28%.

#4.) Our salary: 25%.

Do you drink too much?
There's something strangely reassuring about knowing everyone ELSE in the country is a degenerate too. Gallup just released the results of a nationwide survey on alcohol . . . here are the results:

--Two-thirds of the people in this country say they drink alcohol.

--The average American drinks 4.2 drinks per week. There's a big difference between men and women . . . the average guy drinks 6.2 drinks a week, the average woman drinks 2.2.

--29% of men say they sometimes drink TOO MUCH. So do 14% of women.

--55% of men say BEER is their favorite type of alcoholic drink, 21% say liquor, and 20% say wine. For women, 52% pick WINE as their favorite, 23% pick beer, and 22% pick liquor.

Do you wait or go for it?
I wated WAYYY longer for all of these things when it comes to my current relationship.  Some people think it's your age that determines when you do these things, I think it all comes down to where you want the relationship to go....but that's just me.....According to a survey by the dating site SeekingArrangement.com, the average couple has their first kiss after two dates.


--And since couples go on an average of two dates a week, that means they kiss after their first week of dating. Here's how long it takes to reach other dating milestones:


--They have SEX after four dates . . . or two weeks.


--After SIX dates . . . or three weeks . . . they introduce each other to their friends.


--After 12 dates . . . or six weeks . . . they introduce each other to their parents.


--After 14 dates . . . or seven weeks . . . they say "I love you" for the first time.


--And after 60 dates . . . or 30 weeks . . . they MOVE IN with each other.

Sexy and you know it???
I HOPE this survey doesn't mean the best years in a woman's life are ages 28 to 32. Because that just CAN'T be true, right?


--In a new survey, women say they feel the sexiest at age 28, but they feel most confident at age 32.


--Here are a few other results from the survey . . .


--50% of women say they're proud of their body, and 75% wouldn't change their body shape.


--23% of women say they're most proud of their eyes . . . 20% say their boobs . . . and 13% say their brain. Sure, that means women are three times more likely to like their eyes or boobs more than their brain, but at least it made the top three.


--The number one thing that hurts a woman's confidence is being dumped. Struggling at work is number two.

Sharp dressed man???

I thought I dressed pretty well!  Am I wrong?!?!  Someone PLEASE tell me if I'm lookin a lil crae-crae won't you!?!?


More than a third of men in a relationship (37 percent) don't buy any of their own clothing and almost half

 (48 percent) are completely clueless as to their own clothes size.

 As for those men who do clothes shop, 26 percent would only do so when their existing wardrobe was too worn to wear -- and would then buy items based purely on price rather than appearance.

 The poll of 2,000 women aged 50 and over found that the average man had totally given up on caring about his appearance by the age of 37.

 As a result, nearly 59 percent of women admitted they felt forced to intervene and style their man because their partners' dress sense was either outdated and ageing (18 percent), unstylish and ill-fitting (31 percent) or just plain embarrassing (19 percent).

Well I still dress myself and think I look good.....am I wrong!?!?!?  Someone tell me if I look out dated won't ya?!

SURPRISING LOVE FINDINGS!!!
Ohhhhh....I know I am the one you come to when you wanna talk "love!"  I like the whole tell your story on this....First dates never seem to go right! 
  • 64% of couples say they do or would post romantic messages on their significant other's Facebook walls.
  • The way couples tell the story of their first date is a good indicator of whether or not they'll stay together (more detail is a positive thing!)
  • Studies show women would rather date a guy who opens doors for them than a guy with a six-pack.
  • Research shows that men know they're falling in love after just three dates, but women don't until date 14.
  • Denver, Seattle, Dallas and Chicago top the list of cities where men will pay the most for a first date.

THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SEXTING!!!!

I HATE rules but I think these ones are pretty darned dead on!!!!


1. Don't use abbrevs.
Part of the reason why sexting is so hot is because when you read a sext, it's as if the sender is talking dirty to you. This is why, when sexting, it's important to use full words and speak verbatim. In the middle of a sac-sesh, you would never use abbreviations to talk to dirty, so don't use them in a sext to cut back letters. It takes away from the whole point of sexting. Oh, and it also makes you look lazy, and if someone wants to bed you, they would rather know you will go the extra mile. Rule of thumb: Type it just as you would say it.

2. Don't use big words. The whole point of sexting is to be flirtatious and tempt the fella of your fancy with words to make him crave you. Using big words or innuendos might throw him off, especially when the dude has no idea WTF you're talking about. Save innuendos, lines and big words for the texts you send your friends. When sexting, the more direct and clear your words and intentions are, the better.

3. Be playful. Nothing captures someone's attention like quick wit. Use a pun when possible when initiating sexting. This will throw him off, because what you say can have double meaning. For example, if he's describing a new item he just bought, you can ask, "How big is it? ;)" If he's into you, he'll interpret it the naughty way, therefore making him initiate the actual sexting if he's into it. This puts the ball in his court, just where you want it to be.

4. Be wary of auto-correct. The second you send a sext with a misspelled word (or a word that wasn't meant to be shared in the first place) is the same second you ruin the mood. It's a total buzz kill, and even if you make a joke out of it, that caught-up, steamy mode you were both in totally changes. Before pressing send, re-read your text and be wary of auto-correct and misspelled words.

5. Know your audience. Being on the recipient end of a sext is really rather ego-boosting, and when people get a steamy sext message, they are likely to want to "show off" by sharing it with friends. Before you send a sext, keep in mind that there's potential for it to be shared amongst your guy's friends. Don't say anything too incriminating, and don't send something that you wouldn't want someone else to hear (or associate you with). Keep it tame, if you're concerned.

6. Know when to stop. If you've had some back and forth banter via sexting and then, out of nowhere, the recipient stops responding, let it go. If you text "Why did you stop messaging?", "Where did you go?" or "Why did you leave me high and dry?", you not only come off looking desperate, but a bit aggressive too. When trying to keep someone interested, know that the power lies with the one who ends the conversation first. Just like you wouldn't overstay your welcome at a party or event, get out of the conversation when you no longer have much to say or it's starting to drag on.

7. Delete your history. When you keep various message windows open in your phone or have various texts stored, you run the risk of accidentally sending the sext to the wrong person. I remember once sexting a guy who donned the same name as my brother-in-law. I didn't realize I sent it to the wrong person until the morning after, when my brother-in-law texted me saying "Good night? ;)" I was mortified! By deleting other conversations, you don't run the risk of your sext getting into the wrong hands.
