According to Diet Bites.Com, a person weighing 120 lbs. likely burns an average of 14 calories for every 15-minute kiss, while someone at 160 lbs. burns 19 calories in the same time frame. A large adult at 250 lbs. should burn 30 calories during a 15-minute kissing workout.

The question for me is how do you kiss for 15 minutes?!   Are they talking about ONE kiss?  If you think you can do it, here's what you'
you're up against to break a record.  Personally, If I'd kissed someone for 29 hours, I don't think I'd like him very much... smile

Amoraphobia:- Fear of love. A minute of love is better than a lifetime without it. Even if you lose it later on, the fragrance and memories of a moment of love itself is enough to sweeten up your whole life. So dare to love and learn to let go.

An honest seven-year-old admitted calmly to her parents that Billy Brown kissed her after class. "How did that happen?" gasped her mother. "It wasn't easy," admitted the young lady, "but three girls helped me catch him."

GO ASK ALICE!
With Valentine's Day just around the corner, we thought this would be a great time to share a few tips on caring for cut flowers, especially roses.
Although roses are the most popular valentine flowers, in Denmark, people send pressed white flowers called snowdrops.
Gifting flowers dates back to the 1700s when Charles II of Sweden introduced the Persian custom of the language of flowers to Europe. The rose has become the traditional Valentine's Day flower. As rose flower has always been the popular flower, the meaning of the red rose is still well known as the flower of passion and love. The red rose is also the favorite flower of Venus, the goddess of love, which helped give the rose its symbolic meaning. Within roses, there are various factors like colors and numbers of the flowers that convey specific meanings.
Red rose means “I love you”. Additionally, it stands for beauty, courage, and respect.
White rose indicates true love, purity, innocence, reverence, humility, youthfulness, and charm.
A yellow rose gives out the meanings joy, gladness, friendship, and remembrance.Subtle hues can make a big difference in meaning.
Contrast a plain yellow rose with a yellow rose with a red tip. A yellow rose with red tip conveys the meaning “I'm falling in love with you”.

My boyfriend and I met online and we’d been dating for over a year. I introduced Hans to my uncle, who was fascinated by the fact that we met over the Internet. He asked Hans what kind of line he had used to pick me up. Ever the geek, Hans naively replied, “I just used a regular 56K modem.”

If grownups have trouble figuring out what love is and where to find it in the right places, then maybe they should seek the wisdom of wee bairns:

"When you fall in love, I think you're supposed to get shot with an arrow or something, but the rest of it isn't supposed to be so painful." (Harlen, 8)

"Yesterday I kissed a girl in a private place... we were behind a tree." (Cary, 7)

"On the first date, most people tell each other lies, and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date." Mike, 9

"It's better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need somebody to clean up after them." (Lynette, 9)

"Falling in love is like an avalanche where you have to run for your life." (Roger, 9)

"Lovers hold hands to make sure their rings don't fall off because they paid good money for them." (Dave, 8)
