  1. I’ll admit to the mirror checking….

  2. I’m happy to say that I’m blonde and it definitely does NOT take me 72 minutes to get ready to go out!

  3. Very interesting! I would definitely still workout even if there was a magic pill to make me stay fit. Maybe not as intensely, but I feel yucky if I don’t get in some physical activity most days of the week.

  4. This is fun: Heres what applies to me!

  5. Say what now? These are hysterical (and some good:)

    he #1 smile-inducing food: CHOCOLATE – pffft have they met frozen yogurt?

  6. Okay, that whole thing of only 20% of couples being tired for sex during the week thing is CRAP! LOL I know being tired must be a mood killer more than anything else.

    As for what applies to me – I’m happy most of the time; I’m happy in my relationship; chocolate is a happy food; I check myself out in the mirror too much; and I still love an ex. I would NEVER want to be with him and don’t really miss him, but he will always have a part of me if that makes sense.

    • Makes TOTAL sense. I dated the same guy for 6 years before Keith and while I would never want to be with him again a part of me will always love him.

  7. I am totally happy in my relationship! I would absolutely work out even if there was a pill! I am also happy most of the time!

    I am so old school. I don’t get how people think that having oral sex is not sex. Sex is actually in the word!

  8. ^^ Tina, TOO FUNNY!! 😀
    What a fun post! Some of those facts made me giggle 😛
    Here’s some of my faves:
    – The #1 smile-inducing food: CHOCOLATE
    -60% of women would rather get an enormous raise than lose 10 pounds
    -6 in 10 women are happy in their current relationship
    -42% of people say they find other people who smile a lot to be very attractive
    -84% of women aren’t afraid to let their man see them sans makeup
    -79% of people say they would still work out even if there was a magic pill to keep them fit
    -66 minutes is the average time it takes for brunettes to get ready to go out

  9. Hm, I’m surprised by the blonde brunette disparity in time to get ready. I figured blondes woke up looking good. We brunettes need to try harder. 🙂

  10. I don’t think it takes me any less time to get ready now as a brunette than it did several months ago as a blonde (not that either one is all that long). Guess “natural” blond or brunette is the key here 🙂 I’m not sure which I really am!

    Here are mine:
    1. I would rather get an enormous raise than lose 10 pounds
    2. My weight does affect how happy I am (not the only factor but one all the same)
    3. I could be truly happy without being in love
    4. I am happy in my current relationship
    5. It is possible to have a great relationship without great sex
    6. I probably look in the mirror over 10 times a day
    7. I feel confident most of the time
    8. I’m definitely not afraid for my man (or anyone else) to see me without makeup
    9. We do feel too tired sometimes during the week for sex
    10. I would still work out even if there was a magic pill. I like the energy even more than the body benefits (though those are nice too 🙂 )

    • This is why we are best friends….because I would pick all of those for me too!!

      We need to talk too and figure out when we are going to go see Eclipse!! 🙂

  11. I took anti anxiety meds for about a year and gained 15 pounds. I’m half way towards losing that 15 pounds. When I stopped the meds in February the weight started to drop off like it was nothing!

  12. I would say these mostly apply to me! 🙂 Great list Kelly!
    I would still work out even if there was a magic pill.
    I am happy in my current relationship
    I’m definitely not afraid for my man (or anyone else) to see me without makeup
    We do feel too tired sometimes during the week for sex. (sometimes 🙂 )

  13. Oh my goodness I absolutely love this. So many apply to me. Too much fun!

    xo

  14. This one made me happy:

    60% of women would rather get an enormous raise than lose 10 pounds

  15. i read the one about cheese and couldn’t beleive it. i like cheese but that just seems like a lot.

  16. These are great – thanks…I like that women choose a raise over weight…Lord knows I would…:(

  17. Love this! I am definitely part of of the 32-pounds-of-cheese-per-person statistic!

  18. i would say i check myself out in the mirror too much…..fun facts!

  19. 72 minutes for blondes?! Jesus ladies!! I’m in and out in 30-40 min. I HATE getting ready so I try to do it as quick as possible!

  20. I think my husband would drop dead if actually saw me with make up ON!

    Some of this stuff is really funny.

  21. So how long does it take for redheads to get ready? I feel unloved!! 😉

  22. “420 is the number of minutes of moderate intensity exercise you need each week to maintain your weight without making any changes to your diet”

    wonder what counts as moderate exercise… 😮

  23. 66 minutes to get ready to go out?!?! I am ready in 6. Unless you include shower time, then it goes up to 15. I’m pretty low maintenance, but I guess I’m not looking as hot as the other ladies!

  24. Okey, some curious facts back at you honey 🙂

    The average height of a woman in the U.S. is approximately 5 feet 4 inches, and the average weight is about 163 pounds.

    Approximately 95% of all women in the U.S. have been married at least once by the age of 55.

    Women in the U.S. labor force currently earn just over 77 cents for every one dollar men earn. (In my country it’s 80 cents for women and 1 Euro for men).

  25. I can’t deny takin a peek in every mirror, window, or any surface that shows my reflection. Just need to make sure I’m not a hot mess, you know?

  26. Haha, here’s one that applies to me and I’m proud of it:

    I totally eat about 32 lbs. of cheese a year. IT’S SO GOOD! 🙂

  27. Wow those are some interesting numbers. I must say that I’m not sure about the 72 minute blonde thing. I guess it depends on how dressed up I am and if you include the time it takes me to blow dry my hair if I just washed it. Besides that, it took me about 10 minutes today 🙂

  28. This totally applies to me:

    20% of couples who admit to being too tired to have sex during the week

    TMI, maybe? But Im always too tired!
