The Secret To A Long Life

In a study of people who live to be 100, researchers found they shared certain personality traits:



1. Generally extroverted and gregarious.

"Dear God I'll be dead in 5 years."



2. Have a stable social network.

"Maybe 4."



3. Don't bemoan life's difficulties.

"3 years, tops."



4. Have mastered the art of letting go.

"Definitely 2."



5. The majority were in decades-long relationships and had only kissed one person their entire lives.

"I won't make it to 5 p.m. Wednesday"


End of chat.

  2. I don't consider it to be "living" if you've kissed only one person a year, let alone a lifetime!

  4. You're take on it is very funny, but #5 is a bit ridiculous--I mean those people were born 100 years ago when life was quite different.

  5. I promised my kid to live as long as I can, so I guess I'd better do the things on this horrible list. Gah!

  6. I'm screwed. I can't tell you how many men I've kissed. No really. I can't even tell you, cuz I don't know. But it's a whole lot more than ONE. I mean, ONE = deprivation. I just don't wanna live like that.

  7. I'll skip the social advice and stay on my ultra-low-fat diet.
    Besides, all the 100 year old anti-social loners hung up on them when they called; the study is flawed.

  8. If this were true I would have never made it past childhood. I am in a decades-long relationship and I still kiss more than a few people every year. There's kissing and there's KISSING.

  12. Well, I've seen 'social network' and that thing was anything but stable.

  13. LOL, I too, am doomed. Maybe I'll see you up there on Wednesday at 5!

  14. Well no wonder I am so tired, I'm dying!

  15. Hmm. I think numbers 1 thru 5 are flawed. Who answers yes to all of those? And most important? Do I want to know those people??

  17. Oh, crap... My social network is bat-crazy, I'm a whiner when things don't go my way, I let go of NOTHING, and I was in college the year The Pill was invented. I figure I've got 24 hours to go... LOVE THIS!!
