Loneliness — Don’t Catch It!

A study in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology says colds, swine—I mean, H1N1—flu, and STDs aren’t the only things that are contagious, loneliness is too. They found that lonely people “infect” or “transmit” their feelings of loneliness to their friends, who in turn become lonely. They recommend that you try not to come in contact with lonely people, but if you do, ask them to cover their mouth with their hand before venting, be sure to wash your karma in warm soapy water afterwards, and consider wearing a surgical mask, eye shade, and earplugs when you’re around them.
