First of all, never let your husband watch morning talk shows with you, unless you are prepared to deal with him when he hears them announce that a recent research study showed that women are most likely to give their man some lovin’ on Thursday nights. All day today I have had to listen to Rollin yelling “Hey Baby, guess what night it is?!?! It’s Thursday Night!”
This same study (conducted by St Tropez) also cites that:
*Women have their worst night’s sleep on Monday nights
*Women look their oldest each week at exactly 3:30pm every Wednesday
*Women are the happiest on Friday’s, which the study states may be attributed to the youthful, rosy glow they have after getting a little romance on Thursday evening.
The recommendations the study gives are for women to get 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night and plenty of good lovin’ to keep them young and help prevent aging.
Apparently there is some merit to their claim on how to stay young. Dr. David Weeks, a neuro-psychologist (who published his results in a book called Superyoung: the proven way to stay young forever), did a ten year study that showed that married couples who are amorous three times a week look more than ten years younger than those couples who are only amorous twice a week. Dr. Weeks study showed that not only do these couples look younger, but they also kept themselves in better physical shape for their partners. His study concluded that because these couples looked younger they were more altruistic, confident, and had more intellectual activity.
I suppose the bottom line is this – the results of these studies were probably all written up by married men who were trying to get some attention from their wives – just teasing – the truth is that in researching it a little more I found that there were tons of studies that seemed to have been done which validate the fact that it’s important for married couples to make plenty of time for romance in their relationship if they want to stay looking and feeling young. And since we are now officially in the month of February and its Valentine’s this month, this is the perfect month to start making time for more romance in your marriage.
But men this takes more than just avoiding eye contact with your wife all day as to avoid getting in any trouble with her, thus risking any romance that night. This takes doing plenty of small things all day long to let her know that you love her – like those sweet little text messages you USED to send her when you dated, or those little post-it notes on the mirror saying how beautiful she is (unless it’s Wednesday and its 3:30pm in which case she will know you are lying), or doing the dishes and cleaning up for her – those little things will get you a lot more romance from your wife.
And women, we need to do our part here too – show up, turn off the television (or at least pause the tivo), and wear something besides flannel pajamas or your jumpin jammerz zipper blanket with the feet built into them. Oh, the sacrifices we women make…tee hee….
Well, gotta run, after all, it is Thursday night 🙂
Have a great weekend everyone!
