If you suspect that the way you were raised has had an effect on your ability to maintain healthy relationships, you're probably right.

Dating terminology has gotten a lot broader - and a lot weirder - since the advent of smartphones, social media and online dating. It seems like every other day there's another pithy metaphor, slang word or acronym to jot down or brush up on.
Whether you're trying to keep up in the Gen Y dating scene or just want to decipher your teenage kid's wholly alien vocabulary, this glossary of love lingo is here to help.
It’s wise not to put so much pressure on a first date that you create impossibly high expectations. You’ll only make yourself nervous and likely make your date uncomfortable. But have we gone too far the other direction? It’s time to stop treating every first date like the first pancake in the frying pan. Do not feed it to the relationship dog.
It's easy to be there for friends and family members during the Big Life Events, like weddings, milestone birthdays, or a new job. These are big-ticket happenings that don't take too much effort on our part, that allow us to show our appreciation for our friends simply by showing up.

Whether it’s a weekend of camping, a full-blown music festival or a den in the backyard, there’s a good chance you’ll end up in a tent this season. (And if not, why not?)
Now, as we all know, camping comes with a few restrictions… You have limited space, limited privacy and damn, those guy ropes have a shin vendetta, but there’s no reason any of this should get in the way of your sex life. After all, an impromptu camping trip can make a great low cost romantic getaway.
I'm a 25 year old woman. I'm not "Victoria's Secret model hot" but I'm also aware I'm good looking. I'm told I'm "unique" (eye roll), and I have diverse interests so I usually don't have any problems getting along with people unless I find them absolutely boring. But anyway...
I have a weird problem: People only wanting to get into a relationship with me. It's absolutely not what I'm looking for. Although I'm incredibly sexual, I don't have "romantic feelings".
As the TV series Westworld wraps up its second season, the show continues to spark discussion about a potential future that involves lifelike sex robots. Meanwhile, Australia’s largest adult sexuality and lifestyle expo, SEXPO, is making its way around the country with the theme “Feel the Future” – a nod to all things sex and tech.

It's a fact that many marriages end in divorce. There are all sorts of reasons for this and the process, even in a "conscious uncoupling" where both parties agree to remain on friendly terms, there is a lot of pain and heartache.

I once briefly dated a guy whose entire Twitter feed was about biking. He spent his day posting links to cycling routes, talking about his bike, communicating with other biking enthusiasts, advocating for cyclist safety efforts, and putting up photos of cars obstructing bike paths.
