    7 Times Playing It Too Cool Keeps You From Being In A Real Relationship

    7 Times Playing It Too Cool Keeps You From Being In A Real Relationship

    Over Half Of Us Would Break Up With Our Partner If Our Dogs Didn’t Like Them

    I like dogs, but I wouldn’t really describe myself as a “dog person.” You see, other than my goldfish, I didn’t really grow up with pets, so I don’t really know how to act around dogs. I’m not super scared of them, and I definitely don’t dislike them. In fact, I think they’re cute. But […]

    Men Reveal The One Thing They’re Not Going To Compromise On In A Relationship

    Relationships are all about compromise. Anyone in even a semi-happy relationship will tell you that. Sometimes, you’re going to have to do stuff you don’t want to do, and sometimes, the other person will have to do the same. That’s just the way it works.
