Flowers of Love: The undisputed king of romance in the floral world is the red rose, which is a symbol of passion, desire, fascination, and love. However, there are many flowers that carry a message of affection and passion, especially summertime blooms. An orchid stands for mature, refined love, luxury, and romance, while bright, yellow sunflowers represent peace, love, and happiness, in addition to loyalty and adoration. Lilies, especially red lilies, are also brilliant additions to romantic bouquets as they are connected to longing, love, romance, and passion. Finally, summer daisies complete the list of the five romantic flowers by representing new beginnings and true love. So, this August, as you search for the perfect floral arrangement to express the perfect sentiment, look for the most romantic blooms.

Looking for Love in Cyber Space: According to 2017 statistics, 40% of American singles are utilizing online dating sites. With the increase of mobile devices, young people are getting on board in greater numbers with (and ladies, listen up!) 53% being male users. However, these statistics have dramatically evolved over time. Today, in 2022, we still see more men utilizing dating apps as 32% of dating app participants are men while 28% are women. In total, 35 million people have dabbled with online dating at some point in their lives as of 2022. Go For that Coffee Break: It is estimated that as many as 10,000 marriages per year are the direct result of initially sharing a cup of coffee with someone.
It Pays to Give Her a Kiss: Studies indicate that a man who kisses his wife goodbye before he leaves for work each day actually averages a higher salary than those who don’t. Husbands who are affectionate are also proven to be more stable and hardworking – thus, higher earners.
