Five Random Valentine's Day Facts . . . Why You Should Double Date, Walk Around Naked, and Buy a Juicer
Here are five random stats from a bunch of new Valentine's Day surveys and studies
1. Have you considered a DOUBLE DATE for Valentine's Day? A new study out of Wayne State University in Michigan found double dates can strengthen your relationship because it helps you see your significant other in a new light.
2. You'd think people living alone would spend ALL their time naked . . . but a new survey found COUPLES are more likely to walk around the house nude than single people. 45% of couples do it, compared to 35% of single people.
3. 10% of people are thinking about calling an ex on Valentine's Day.
4. A new poll says your wife or girlfriend might want an APPLIANCE for Valentine's Day. But it has to be the RIGHT appliance . . . not, like, a vacuum cleaner. The two gifts women want the most are a JUICER and a Keurig coffee maker.
5. A happy marriage gives you as much satisfaction as an extra $105,000-a-year in income. Having your spouse die feels the same as losing $308,780-a-year.
