GOTHAM NEWS: Scientists find that true love IS real
I commend any couple that has the audacity and the fortitude to climb aboard a Relation Ship together and test the waters and storms of love. Now while I do believe that love is real and possible if you find someone you click with (and I’m not saying “THE ONE”, I’m saying ‘A ONE ‘that works for you), personally I’m not big on the titles aspect of it all. Boyfriend, girlfriend, boo, spoogie, FUBU (hint: the ‘BU’ stands for buddy) whatever, in my book the only title that means anything is the one you get after marriage. Hell, you gotta sign papers, give away half of yourself (possessions included) and piss off God to get out of that one, and if you’re a woman you have to undergo an identity crisis depending on how long you’ve had this dude’s last name…so whether you’re religious or not it’s a title (WITH POWER) to respect…
The Boyfriend/Girlfriend title seems to strike me as something that man made up waay waay back when. Back in the time when Sexism bullied young Racism and women were just realizing that their brains were bigger without any scientists having to say shit to prove it. Without a man-bashing Beyonce song to inspire them, these pioneers of the Vagina Industry decided to stop being the “good” sex slaves and house maidens that man of the time was use to and began having opinions, great ideas, discoveries and most importantly began banging whoever they pleased, soo to keep his “woman” in check without having to make her his “Woman” (see: Wife), man created “the title”. With the creation of “The Title” man was able to keep her for him without having to piss God off when he was done with her…unfortunately for man when he created this, he hadn’t realized that he had to be committed as well (nor did he know that he had just given woman a superpower called INTUITION)…
…which lends one to think that maybe “the title” was the woman’s plan all along, they make the rules and bend them the best don’t they?…shit, their brains are larger after all right?
But yeah, cynical ramblings aside, if you’re on the ‘Ship’ then here’s some good news for you just in time for Valentine’s day.
“Researchers at Stony Brook University in New York, scanned the brains of couples together for 20 years and compared them with results from new lovers. About 10 percent of the mature couples had the same chemical reactions when shown photographs of their loved ones as those just starting out.”—CNN
So, though it may seem as though Cupid’s arrows may need a little hypnotiq sprinkled on the tips with a dash of Ridilin, Stony Brook University psychologists feel that the arrows DO work…
“The findings go against the traditional view of romance — that it drops off sharply in the first decade — but we are sure it’s real”—Arthur Aron, a psychologist at Stony Brook
Wait…what’s that Mr. Aron? Your findings go against the traditional view of romance? Well…what’s the traditional view?
Previous research has suggested that the first stages of romantic love fade within 15 months and after 10 years it has gone completely–CNN
Damn, they got that science down to a science…15 months was the previous timeline for love…things that make you say
Now of course, not to go completely FOX NEWS on ya, these tests aren’t saying that love just disappears after 15 months, they are saying that commonly that that initial, obsessive, stalker spawning love, fresh out of the Krispy Kremes chemical imbalance style oven, is usually a joke by month 16. But of course this is just old information, because Stony Brook’s mass study has disproven this “fact” completely…
Using brain scans, researchers at Stony Brook University in New York have discovered a small number of couples respond with as much passion after 20 years together as most people only do during the early throes of romance—The Britain Sunday Times
“Small number of couples”? So, this wasn’t even the results of the majority of the couples? Then, how? Wait…what? And this is news?
Guess I should change the title of this story “Love IS real….for some”…didn’t we already know that though?
Well…nothing left to say but..Ayo Month Sixteeners!
