Nature, in her infinite wisdom, is truly kinky. For every strange thing humans do to impress a potential mate (and, oh, people do some deeply disturbing things), the animal kingdom can out-weird you any day. In case you were embarrassed that you double-texted your crush, just remember bees literally roll over and die to mate with their queen. Very Romeo and Juliet of them, actually, if the queen cared at all.  

In the words of the great one-hit wonder Bloodhound Gang, “You and me, baby, ain’t nothing but mammals/So let’s do it like they do on the Discovery Channel.” However, we strongly advise against it in the instances that it breaks the law and/or human decency. So please, we beg of you, do not actually discard your penis after sex. With that legal warning that hereby absolves us of any inspiration, here’s that and 12 other dating tips that only that freaky Mother Nature could dream up.

Get in the middle of a fight

NATURE'S DATING TIPS CRACKED.COM GET IN THE MIDDLE OF A FIGHT African bullfrogs will fight, sometimes to the death, in shallow pools.
