A kiss is just a kiss

Italian News - January 12

Up to 36 per cent of men say that they endure grief and suffering at the end of an affair, compared with only 21 per cent of women, according to a survey by the Riza Institute in Milan, which specializes in psychotherapy.

The survey, based on a sample of 1,000 Italians between the ages of 24 and 65 and published in the institute’s journal, Riza Psicosomatica, concludes that Italian women have become more aggressive and self-confident while men have become more sensitive and unsure of themselves.
