the smell of sadness

.

"so, um, your smelly sadness is really turning me off right now.  no, seriously."

NPR:  Smell That Sadness?  Female Tears Turn Off Men.

apparently, chemicals present in emotionally-shed female tears reduce male testosterone and sexual arousal.  males are temporarily emasculated by female tears.

whatever.  humans aren't subject to chemical impulses.  we have free will.

"did somebody just...?  ugh.  mind leaving the room next time?"

Andrew said...

Haha! This must be a double edged sword because some guys flock to emotionally unstable girls because they are needy... But in the long run I don't think they are worth it... I mean, so much baggage!

With this being said, what about guys crying? I hope that my tears don't have the opposite effect on women--instead of repelling perhaps they attract? God knows.
