Wouldn’t it be great if relationships, like food, medicines, and other consumer products came with their own warning labels?

Unfortunately, humans come in all different shapes and sizes, and people seeking relationships just have to wing it. One good thing though is that a number of studies have already been done about human relationships, and one such study undertaken in Kansas State University, underlines five red flags people need to watch out for when they are in a relationship:

#1. Family and Friends Can’t Stand Your Significant Other

When you are in the throes of love, its very unlikely for you to see anything wrong with your sweetheart. However, it would be wise to listen to your family’s and friends’ feedback. They probably see all the negative things you don’t.

#2. Your Partner Gives You a Lot of (Often) Unbelievable Excuses

Relationships are all about trust, and if the love of your life appears to have a lot of inexcusable reasons for questions you pose, its time to get suspicious about their trustworthiness as a partner.

#3. Your Girlfriend/Boyfriend is Getting Too Close Too Fast

If your relationship seems to be whizzing by at lightning speed and your significant other is rushing you through certain milestones and commitments that you aren’t ready for, its a big warning flag. Being in a relationship shouldn’t be about pressuring the other person. It takes time to develop.

#4. Your Significant Other Has Little to No Friends

If your partner appears to be anti-social, it may signal an inability to be in a long-term relationship. Intimacy and closeness are part and parcel of a stable union, and if the person you love lacks that potential, you may want to take a step back and evaluate.

#5. Your Partner Has Drinking or Substance Problem

A dependence on addictive substances underlies deeper psychological issues, which will only worsen in the long run if they refuse treatment. Getting into a relationship with this type of person will only suck you further down into their problems.

Are you seeing any of these warning signs in your own relationship?

Thinking about childhood memories always brings good and positive feelings. It makes us think about how fun life could be with simple stuff and silly games.

When we grow old and face the real world, we tend to take simple things for granted and let serious matters take away simple joys. But for an Irish grandmother named Olive Smyth, there is never a good time to take away the "child" in her.

One day, the 82-year-old woman was walking around Dublin with her son named Mark, when she decided to play a quick game of "knick knacking." You may recognize this silly prank as the classic past time of kids before. In the said game, one would knock or ring the doorbell of someone else's door then immediately run away out of sight.

Now it can be told. Men take longer grooming and getting prepped in the morning when compared to women. This is according to a survey done by blog Grooming Lounge and RealSelf.com, a health and wellness site. A total of 400 men and women were surveyed and seventy-one percent of the 400 guys said they spent more time grooming in the morning than their women counterpart.

The seventy-one percent mentioned they spent thirty minutes grooming compared to the sixty-three percent of women respondents. Women were still among those who spent a long amount of time, between one to two hours, in the bathroom. The survey however, did not mention anything about what exactly the guys were doing in the bathroom. The questions revolved mostly on how long it took them in the morning to get ready.

Many of us use Instagram not only to update our friends about our latest getaways, or inform them of a snippet of our lives. One of the most useful and addicting feature of Instagram is that it gives us the capability to sneak a peek into the lives of celebrities, our idols or pretty much anyone we take a fancy to follow.

Due to this share-all, bare-all culture in social media, sometimes people try to post pictures to "outdo" one another. And this becomes a "tweet war" or "Insta war".

A few months back the hashtag #Narcostyle and the IG account #narcoofficial (deleted since then) became trending due to the posts that show the extravagant lifestyle of drug cartel heirs and heiresses in Mexico. These rich, spoiled kids post confirmations of their wealth trying to outdo one another and become "Narco king".
