Boyfriends

Girls are sometimes glad to be away from their boyfriends for weeks at a time–months, even. And yet you crave a boyfriend without realizing that you’ll soon return to your baseline level of happiness.

Lottery winners return to their baseline levels of happiness two months after receiving their winnings.

Paraplegics return to their baseline levels of happiness two months after their accidents.

[There was an actual study done in 1978 comparing the happiness levels of lottery winners and paraplegics.]
