I LITERALLY get 40-50 mosquito bites after about a month.
No-one else seems to get bitten as much. Maybe as much as 10
And the people who usually get bitten, are bitten no longer, because I get bitten instead of them!!

Why is this? Is my blood THAT tasty? ;D

It's not that you are bitten more, but that you react more, because you are not used to those mosquito's, and are, perhaps, more sensitive. I always get bites, and my husband doesn't, and I used to think they preferred me to him, but I've seen them biting him and he doesn't notice and gets no bite mark!

Some people attract mosquitos more than others,who said being attractive was better than ugly  :).

Last summer i went to the dominican republic and someone who we meet  their got drunk one night and slept outside on a chair in just his shorts the next morning he must of had 100 or so bites. The weird thing was i was their two weeks and didnt see 1 mosquito  ;D
