Why Going Home For School Breaks is Like a HS Reunion You Don't Want To Have

Lists

You might realize that you whenever you go home for break - winter, summer or spring - you always seem to run into people you went to high school with. Whether you come from a small town or a big city chances are you still end up seeing someone you know. For some people that may be a great thing, but for others it's something we could easily live without. This article is dedicated to the latter.

10. The gossip never stopped. People always claim that gossip stays in high school, but they were extremely wrong. It's like every time you come home you get filled in on all the latest gossip, but you could honestly care less.

9. People make a game out of seeing who's doing better in life. When people see you for the first time after high school it's like all of a sudden they care about what you're doing with your life. But you can't seem to shake off the feeling that they're just trying to see who's doing "better".

Suspicious Girlfriend Resorts To Catfishing Her Boyfriend To Catch Him Cheating...And It Worked

Cheating is the worst way to end a relationship, even worse than a bad fight or being ignored by someone. It's painful for both parties, even though the cheater in the relationship doesn't really have any room to talk. The unfortunate truth of the matter is that cheating happens frequently, both in established marriages and casual relationships.

The Blue Diamond Gallery

People come up with all kinds of reasons as to why they cheat, but none are valid. Sandra Bullock's ex-husband Jesse James admitted to cheating and tried to justify his actions saying "In general, both women and men cheat... It's part of life." I think that's simply wrong and just reflects a poor attitude about relationships. It's a mindful choice that someone makes, and leads to consequences he has to live with.

But if people have this attitude towards cheating, believing that it's a natural part of life, how often does it happen? Exact numbers are difficult to pinpoint since there's not a real database of cases of infidelity. Even then, you'd still have to account for cheating that occurs in unmarried relationships. Experts, however, estimate that about 25% of all men and 14% of all women will cheat on a relationship at least once in his or her lifetime.

Mark Manson

These are just samples taken from studies, not accounting for homosexual relationships. Also, if someone's willing to lie to their partner about cheating, why wouldn't she also lie to the researcher who's interviewing her about it? Still, though, 25% is a lot, and this gap between men and women in terms of likeliness to cheat is shrinking.

Understanding Relationships

Some studies even suggest that some women have genes that predispose them to want to act unfaithful towards their partners. "The gender gap in adultery is closing, and it's not just about opportunity and possibility," says renowned relationship book author Helen Fisher, PhD. "But it is about choice. Women now are more aware of the alternatives to monogamy and more inclined to demand to have all their needs met."

Bet You Didn’t Know The Position Of Your Head Is The Giveaway When People Catch You Staring At Them

I'm sure we've all been there. You're staring at someone across the room, maybe checking them out. You know, sizing them up, seeing if you think they're cute or not...or maybe they're wearing something interesting; you're like "Dang, I need to go compliment them on that shirt." There's no way they're going to happen to look in your direction...there's so much else going on for them to pay attention to.

Health Magazine

But then, out of nowhere, the person you were staring at turns their head and looks directly at you. You panic, turn the other way and try to pretend that you were doing something else. But I know, and they know and you know that you were giving them the old once over and there's nothing you can do to hide that. As embarrassing as it is, this happens to people in public all the time.

NetDoctor

Especially in high school, I remember looking at the back of someone's head in class for a little bit. They'd just be chilling there but, all of a sudden, would turn around and stare right at me. And the same is true of the other way around; I've caught people staring at me from afar. But how did I know that someone was staring at me?

Leafly

It turns out, science has a few answers for why this mysterious phenomenon occurs. You know, that feeling of being watched you get sometimes when you're surrounded by people? That small uncomfortable pang that your actions are being watched, maybe even assessed by someone around you? And then you look around to find that, yes, indeed, someone was staring at you.

Pinterest

It's downright spooky when that happens. And, according to a new scientific study, this sixth sense actually hard-wired into our brains. Sometimes, in fact, we can feel as though someone's looking at us even when we're not being watched. One of the reasons this occurs has to do with humans' fascination with eyes. They're often called "the window into the soul".

Bizarre Scientific Evidence That The Reason We Like To Kiss Has Little To Do With Love And A Lot To Do With Survival

Kissing is great. Kissing is, like, the best thing ever. Well, maybe not, but it's up there. Locking lips is such a versatile practice of showing human emotion and affection. For every person you meet, you can have your first smooch with them. That's not as important as your first kiss ever, obviously, but it's a new experience you can always have when you start to get to know someone.

YouTube

The first kiss you share with someone is almost magical; some might even say that the first kiss is the best kiss in the entire relationship, or at least serves as the basis for every other lip smack to come. And, hopefully, there will be many more, for kissing your partner or loved one is a surefire way to show them that you care- and it's pretty fun, too!

Onedio

However, on the other side of the coin, you never know if your next kiss with someone is going to be your last kiss with him or her. So you have to make each smooch count because there's only a finite number of tongue tucks you can experience in your lifetime. Different cultural interpretations of kissing only adds to the intrigue behind the lip lock.

Women Planet

Depending on where you are in the world and what situation you're in, kisses can denote love, passion, romance, thankfulness, sexual attraction or friendship. In that way, each kiss is like a piece of art.  Not only is each unique to the person who creates it, but it can mean something different to everyone who experiences it. Your kisses might come off as too angsty or too sweet depending on who you're kissing.

Days of the Year

In this manner, the kiss can be our greatest too as well as our strongest weapon. Still, regardless of the repercussions, you can't deny that kissing is just plain fun. A kiss is special; even though kissing is enjoyable, you can't just go around kissing everyone or it wouldn't mean anything. Why, then, do we enjoy kissing? What is it about this specific gesture that excites us?

Slate Magazine

It turns out, science has some answers to these questions. Keep reading to learn about why humans kiss to display affection.
