The Numbers According To Cosmo

Today is Wedding Wednesday and I have an interesting article to share with you today.  Just about every woman I know has dreamed of her wedding "since she can remember."  I was reading the October issue of Cosmopolitan and came across a very interesting article on love and numbers.  More like the number of times you should do this or the number of times men like that.  I'd certainly love to know what you think of the numbers that they've come up with.  

  • 2 is the number of times you should say his name in a conversation to show him that you're interested in him.  Saying his name makes him subconsciously feel more connected to you but you don't want to overdo it.
  • 92% of men think that dinner is the perfect setting for the first date.  It wouldn't hurt if this setting was a romantic one with a few personal touches, similar to a Valentines dinner I created this past February as seen below.

  • 97 is the average number of days it takes a guy to say those magic words that we love to hear.  "I love you!"
  • 5 is the number of times you should casually touch a guy you're into within 15 minutes.  Now, I don't know about you, but I think this is a bit much, especially if it's early in the relationship!  The article states that men aren't into subtlety so several pats on the arm, pecks on the cheek, and hands on the knee are necessary.

I don't subscribe to this magazine and have no idea why it came to my house, but I must say that I found some interesting things in it.  I hope you find these numbers as interesting as I did.
