Handcuffs as couples’ therapy
Ukrainian couple Alexandr Kudlay and Viktoria Pustovitova found a new approach to save their relationship.
After a long period of break-ups and misunderstandings, they decided to handcuff each other for 3 months to strengthen their relationship. Alexandr started the experiment after their fight, and Viktoria supported the decision. Now, the couple does everything together, even grocery shopping while holding the bag together.
The three-month experiment started on Valentine’s day. Until this day, their relationship still has some problems but the couple finds ways to overcome them. If before being handcuffed, the couple would break up and start packing, now they just stop talking until one of them starts a constructive conversation.
This new approach led to thousands of new followers on Instagram. Some daily routine as visiting the bathroom requires organized actions, one waits outside.
However, it is still not clear how the couple goes to work.
The Stingy Men Association in Nigeria swear to give “shishi” to women
The Stingy Men Association was formed in Nigeria after male concerns about how costly the datings are nowadays.
There are different statements from men population of Nigeria on social media stating that men do not feel recognized for their spending on dates and that they are being manipulated for their generosity.
Stingy Men Association created their own app that design specific ID cards for members and all members are giving swear an oath to give “shishi”, which means nothing, to women.
There was a response of the female community on social media with skepticism and organized their own association “Stingy Women Association of Nigeria”. This shows how dating in Nigeria is expensive and how relationships are being built between young adults.
In Nigeria, some women things that men have to take care of all their financials and demand expensive things. The nights out with hidden costs are on men, that is why it causes much pressure on men.
There were some stories when one man had to pay a bill with his watch, or when another man’s date came with her friend, so he had to pay for two ladies. This also shows how money is important in a relationship in Nigeria.
Not only do men feel pressure, but women also. Women feel like they have to get rewards for close and intimate relationships not to feel used.
According to psychologist Ann Uramu, the relationships should not be based on finances only, and that it has to be an equal partnership.

These tips are considered to be very useful since the need to wear masks will not end until 2022.
What kind of emoji is common for men and women?
According to recent reports from Pew Research Center men and women use emoji differently.
For instance, the emoji monkey is commonly used by men.
Max Alley, an online dating coach, explains that men have to apologize many times, and since men are being direct, they usually use such emoji as eggplant, purple devil emoji in a sexual context, sweating while smiling emoji.
Amie Leadingham, a dating coach, points out that females receive many monkey emojis from men when apologizing, but still trying to be cute.
Common emojis for women are the blushing face, the zippered mouth, and the sad downtrodden emoji. These emoji show a psychological view of women’s behavior.
Women usually spend time on men who would want to be direct. Women use flirty emoji just in simple chatting, while men can interpret those emoji differently.
Bitmoji is a common thing for women and gay men, whereas straight men rarely use them. Men react with fire emoji often when excited, women react with hearts and sparkle emojis.
Overall women use emoji more often than men and have a better knowledge of which emoji represent what. Also, women usually elongate their words to express their feelings.
