Surprise! A new study by out of the University of Indiana found that among couples who’ve been together an average of 25 years, CUDDLING is more important to men, and SEX is more important to women! They surveyed 1000 couples in five nations and found that men who said there was a lot of kissing and cuddling were 3X more likely to be happy in the relationship, while kissing and cuddling made no difference to the women. But the longer the women were with their partner, the more likely they were to enjoy sex. Researchers believe it may be because “the kids are out of the house or their expectations have changed”.
- In this case “changed” means “dramatically lowered”.
- I think it’s because it’s a lot easier for a guy to watch football while he’s cuddling than when he’s scoring!
