An Australian man named Jake Craig caused chaos on the internet when he claimed that all men tell the same lie in relationships “for attention.” Some men agree with Craig, while others claim that the influencer isn’t calling out a lie – he’s telling one. See for yourself what this man is asserting and whether or not you agree with him.

The Lie

Jake Craig said the following: “To all the ladies out there with a boyfriend who’s always saying, ‘I don’t want to get married.’ We say that for attention. We want you to say, ‘No, but I want to marry you so bad.’” And, with that, all the women around the world collectively gasped.

The Internet’s Response

The majority of the internet seems to back up Craig’s claim. One woman wrote, “Oh, well this explains why my ex got so mad after he said this to all his mates in front of me and I said ‘I don’t expect to marry you anyway.’” While another person joked, “Men want to be the princess so bad.”

That said, it seems that it’s not just men who do this. At least one female influencer says that she’s told the exact same lie to men. It looks like everyone’s just playing the game!

The Scientific Explanations Behind Cats Licking Each Other

We all know cats like to lick themselves and also each other. It’s not only a cute sight to watch, but also a necessary grooming regime for our feline friends. They sometimes seem borderline obsessive with it while nestled together. According to science, cats don’t do all this only to get ‘purr-fectly’ clean, but there are other reasons behind this strange cat conundrum.

The Primary Reasons

The licking behavior all cats engage in is called allogrooming. Interestingly, this isn’t only limited to cats but occurs in all animals. Licking each other is a sign of bonding, trust, and affection to them. From the perspective of grooming, licking is highly functional as cats and other animals help each clean hard-to-reach spots like heads with their tongue. It’s also related to their survival instinct. By licking each other, cats create a shared scent that is unique to the group. Cats usually use scent as the primary element to identify friends from foes, this group scent is highly important to them to recognize each other even before sight.

The Liking and Bonding

Licking for cats is like a good nuzzle every now and then. So, it’s quite natural to hear a gentle purr coming from the cats while the grooming session is on. It’s a way for them to express affection, which helps in strengthening their social bond. For the cats living in the same household, licking can sometimes become a way to demonstrate one’s power and dominance over other cats. A maternal instinct is involved in these cute kitty kisses. This licking behavior starts in the lives of cats from their kitten phase. Mommy cats hold their kittens down for a minute or two to give them a few quick licks before they run off again. So, in a way, for cats, this is a reminder of kittenhood and helps them to calm down.
