The second type of person not to date at Uni:
A Sabbatical Officer
Sabbs are students who’ve taken a year off either during or after their cource to take on various positions in Students’ Unions. Often these will be positions voted in by a general vote of the student population. Sabbs are often responsible for student wellbeing, activities, sports or representation.
It might seem great dating someone vaguely important, but it’s not a good idea.
The problem is, a sabbatical officer will be everywhere. You will not be able to avoid them if it all goes wrong. There’s probably massive posters of them up on the wall, emails from them each week, and of course, everyone knows who they are and will probably keep bringing the two of you up for a long time to come. It’s going to be pretty hard to get over someone when they’re so much around you.
So, in this series of three people not to date when you’re at Uni, we’re going to start with #1 (obviously).
It sounds like a brilliant idea, I mean it’s super convenient right? Well, yes, it is good when you are together. You will get closer to someone much quicker and likely feel a lot more comfortable together when you’re living together. But the big issue here is if it all goes wrong. Not only is it impossible to avoid each-other, things can get pretty awkward if your ex-partner starts bringing someone else over.
In halls, it may not be so bad, but do you really want to be sharing a bathroom or kitchen with your ex’s new love interest? It’s just not worth it. Perhaps wait until the summer when you may be moving apart before starting anything off?
For millennia, it has been known that certain foods have an aphrodisiac affect on most humans. And although these effects are not long-term, they are very effective in improving any relationship or sexual experience. Over the years, there have been a number of scientific studies on the effectiveness of aphrodisiacs. These aphrodisiacs come in many different shapes and sizes. For the most part, many of them are actually popular desserts. There are also regular meals that have some effect as well as numerous fruits and vegetables that have been known for their aphrodisiac influences.
Different kinds of foods are capable of changing a person’s disposition. Some foods can make somebody upset, while others can make them irritable. Certain foods can make somebody happy while others can arouse sexual desires in a person. This all comes down to the chemical reaction which occurs in our brains after we eat certain types of foods. These foods release different types of chemicals in the body that affects us all differently. Certain foods are capable of triggering the body to release endorphins into the bloodstream. These endorphins are responsible for transmitting electrical impulses through our nervous system. They are also directly responsible for our sex drive and the feeling of arousal.
Not only do these aphrodisiac desserts and foods help to improve our sexual experience, but they also have a positive effect on our overall health. When endorphins are released into the body, our cholesterol is reduced substantially. These endorphins also increase our metabolism which causes us to burn through more calories; even when sitting still. There are many, many positive benefits to consuming aphrodisiacs on a regular basis. Any type of food which gives us a sensual indulgence when consumed is considered an aphrodisiac. For example, honey is a sweet and delicious condiment, which when consumed, tantalizes taste buds in a way that sends shivers down our spine. It is also the main ingredient in a popular dessert known as baklava.
Baklava itself is considered an excellent aphrodisiac dessert. It is very simple to prepare, and when made properly it can send anyone into sensual bliss. Not only does it taste great, but within milliseconds of being consumed endorphins are released through the body arousing desires that were never thought possible. Even chocolate brownies are considered to be aphrodisiacs. Both chocolate as well as nuts are popular aphrodisiac ingredients. When you combine multiple ingredients that are considered to be aphrodisiacs into one easy-to-swallow dessert, you are able to improve the experience even more.
Many fresh berries including blueberries, raspberries as well as strawberries are also aphrodisiacs. These can be combined in numerous different ways with other ingredients such as with cream to make an excellent dessert that will send anyone into a sensual bliss. So when you want to truly arouse the person that you love, start by giving him something great to eat. From the very first moment that take place the aphrodisiac desserts in their mouth, the endorphins are released and they become completely hooked on you.

So who’d have thought technology actually ruined relationships.
Well, it does. I imagine most of you probably think I’m going on the lines of your partner taking too many selfies, spending their life Tweeting or perhaps they’re too stuck it the world of Instagram. No, I’m on about internet infidelity.
The internet has made it far easier for people to meet, connect, hook-up, whatever. That’s great if you’re single, but if you’re in a relationship, the urge to cheat on your partner is higher than ever. The virtual world offers the convenience and anonymity that can prove too tempting for many to resist, even if they have a partner who is willing to have sex with them right there in the other room. There’s no physical contact, so what’s the problem? Is talking or flirting with other people on-line when you’re already in a relationship cheating?
77% of people would tend to agree, that any type of on-line flirting or cyber-sex is in fact cheating. Despite the many reasons a cheater could use to rationalise their activities, an overwhelming majority of people agree that cheating is cheating, regardless of the medium. It’s a new and puzzling grey area that has become such a big problem, it’s actually been the reason behind almost a third of divorce cases in the last few years.
When you do something dangerous, like skydiving or extreme sports, your body pumps out massively increased levels of a stress hormone called Cortisol.
Cortisol is the primary hormone in the “fight or flight” response that floods your system with adrenaline and primes your body for survival in a life-or-death situation. Put an attractive woman in a room with a man, however, and that man’s body suddenly can’t tell the difference between a beautiful woman and a rampaging predator.
In fact, just being alone with an attractive woman for a few minutes raises Cortisol levels to those seen during heart attacks. It sounds absurd, but when researchers tested male hormone levels with a saliva swab after being alone with an attractive female, their Cortisol was actually right around the levels you’d expect to see after skydiving or bungee-jumping. The more sexually attractive he thought the woman was, the higher his Cortisol levels would rise. Their tests concluded that, in parallels to fighting a predator, sexual interest is seen (at least at the hormonal level) as a challenge that must be overcome. The more dangerous (i.e., attractive) the predator (i.e., woman), the more prepared he needs to be to survive (i.e., get laid). However, a word of warning: Further studies show that women are actually turned off by men with higher than average stress levels – and that they can actually tell just by observation the amount of “freaking out” a man is doing at that moment. So, looks like it’s a lose-lose situation!
