If your Facebook friends list is anywhere near as accurate as your actual friends list, chances are, you know a lot of people in relationships. Some of those relationships are good, but often, they are twisted, bizarre bent up pieces of metal soldered together with tears and awkward sex.
This is about those relationships. Following, we have 16 types of couples you’re probably friends with — or have at one time been a part of yourself. Keep reading »
The union of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West is just the most perfect union of all time (of all time), and I could not be happier with their decision to date and procreate with one another. Good job, you guys! My favorite star-crossed lovers are in Paris right now for Couture Week, so I figured I’d do a little bit of recon and find out what these two have been up to in the City of Lights …
Over the holiday weekend, “Real Housewives of New York” star Bethenny Frankel announced that she and husband Jason Hoppy were separating. Frankel met Hoppy while filming “Housewives,” and the pair were treated to two Bravo spinoffs about their relationship: “Bethenny Getting Married” and “Bethenny Ever After,” which chronicled their wedding and marriage and the birth of their daughter Bryn.
“I am heartbroken. I am sad. We will work through this as a family,” Frankel tweeted on Sunday.
But should she have seen it coming? After all, couples that get married on TV don’t have the best track record. In fact, we’ve taken a tally, and it seems that couples that undergo televised weddings have a rather lousy rate of success. We’ve gone through and looked at some of the couples who made it down the aisle with the world watching. Take a look and tell us whether a televised wedding would work for you.
Whenever I tell people that I write about relationships, the first thing they want to know is the most commonly asked questions we receive. Next, of course, they want to know what my answers are to said questions. When it first started happening, I would get kind of nervous, especially if I was being put on the spot by a bunch of guys who didn’t think I could possibly know anything about the male mind. Let me tell you, proving them wrong is one of the best feelings ever!
In time, however, I got it down and could quickly rattle off brief, yet on-point, answers to even the most seemingly tricky relationship dilemmas. After getting grilled for what felt like the trillionth time the other week, I decided that I should make an article out of my “bite sized” answers to the most common relationship questions.

The summer is ending, which means we won’t be seeing too many more celebs-on-the-beach photos. (Wait, who are we kidding? Life is one long vacation for the rich and famous.)
However, we will get to see a fair share of awesome TV shows coming back this fall! We can’t wait to glue ourselves to the tube and watch the romances blossom between these five couples on our favorite series. In fact, they should probably take their romances off-screen, too. The chemistry is just too good! Here are five TV couples we think should date in real life:
1. Ed Westwick and Leighton Meester: ”Gossip Girl.” Come on, you know that their chemistry on-screen is pretty obvious — and to think that it all started in season one in the back of his limo. Read more …
When it comes to the 2012 London Olympic Games, there are a few things we’re really looking forward to – and one of them is seeing the sexy couples that will be competing together or cheering one another on!
Shooters Russell and Lauryn Mark:
While some may think competition interferes with a relationship, here are four couples who show that love and championships can indeed go hand-in-hand. Australian Shooters Russell and Lauryn Mark have been making headlines recently as they are heading to the Olympics together, but apparently in separate rooms. The two—who married in 2004—were told they are not allowed to room together, while many same-sex couples are allowed two. Russell has two Olympic medals and two Commonwealth Games’ medals; Lauryn has four Commonwealth Games’ medals. Read more …

We’ve all planned dates and meetups with friends — but what about sexytimes? An article by “life intimacy coach” Kim Anami suggests that if you really want to maintain a sense of intimacy with your partner, you better get your iCals synced. “Knowing what we know about the power of sex to energize and uplift, mind, body and soul, it’s important to prioritize it in our lives,” says Anami. “To schedule it even.” In her practice as a couples counselor, she often recommends that couples designate certain times of the week as sex time. And she recommends that couples spend at least three hours per week having sex. Keep reading »
It is better to be single than badly accompanied: that is a truism of relationships that I’ve often reminded myself when the time came for a difficult breakup conversation. As we all know, time and distance can have blurring effects. You forget about the times he yelled at you in public or the snotty tone of voice he used when he talked down to you. You remember the cuddles and the kisses as if they were all you did, every time, even when you know this is not the whole story.
On Valentine’s Day — the day that is supposed to be about celebrating love and romance — it seems fitting to remember the guys who we are happy aren’t in our lives:
