“Hickeys”- most commonly known as “love-bites” are one of the most popular ways of proclaiming your love for someone. Or it also could be your way of marking territory. Ever wanted to know more about hickeys? Well, you’ve come to the right place!
1. Not everyone can be Iron Man
If you are someone who gets a mark easily, then it could possibly mean that you have an iron deficiency. Hmm, never thought about it that way, have you?
2. A hickey can be really stubborn
No, it won’t magically go away overnight. Good luck trying to explain that mark to your mother. Teehee.
3. Spoon it
This really works - place your spoon over ice and then gently rub the spoon over your love-bite in circular motions. It still doesn’t magically disappear, but it does speed up the process.
4. So much love - forever
Be careful with them hickeys because it could actually leave a scar forever. FOREVER.
5. Oral herpes
Yes, it’s a medical condition and you could easily contract it if someone who has oral herpes gives you a hickey.
6. Animal instincts
We are but just animals at the end of the day. Studies have shown that human beings learned how to give each other hickeys after they started imitating other animals doing the same.
7. Thanks, Freud
If you read into dreams, then this should intrigue you. If you are dreaming about someone giving you a hickey it may very well mean that you are stuck in a relationship that you want out of.
