This month I have searched the internet for some of the coolest things in regards to love. This contains articles from everything from the history of lingerie, to how well the Welsh know how to spoon! So even if you didn’t find this month particularly romantic, perhaps you’ll find it a bit more educational.
1.) As much as we would like to think the world is in love on Valentine’s, that’s only half true for many Asian countries. On Valentine’s, it’s the girls who give chocolates to their interests and a MONTH later on March 14 the men are expected to return the favor! To read more about this check out this article by Forbes.
2.) I personally don’t believe that soulmates are real. HOWEVER, this article by Psychology Today helped explain that soulmates aren’t as much found as they are created. Which I think gives hope to all relationships out there, not just the ones that are perfect.
3.) Lingerie is not so much designed as engineered. THIS article by Mashable talks about how simple pieces of fabric to flatten women’s chests, turned into a 30 Billion dollar industry. It’s not a boring article by far (how can Lingerie be boring?!?!) and the next time you go out to pick up a sexy set, you’ll appreciate all the history behind it!
4.) The Welsh Really Know How to Spoon, and by spoon, I mean making gorgeous wooden love spoons. They’re fashioned out of wood and seriously look like something from Rivendale in Lord of the Rings. You can read all about them and even watch the VIDEO HERE!
5.) Why is Cupid usually shown as this little baby with wings and a bow and arrow? What’s his back story? Did he ever grow up? DID HE EVER FIND LOVE? Get all of your burning questions answered in this interesting Wikipedia article I found that will set the record straight.
Regardless of how this month has played out for you, I hope these articles made you blush, smile and learn something interesting that you can talk about on your next night out.
