Poll: Would You Ever Date A Guy Who's Slept With A Prostitute?

'No Strings Attached' And 'Friends With Benefits:' Same Movie?

Are 'No Strings Attached' and 'Friends With Benefits' the same movie? I know, I know—your first reaction is probably the one that I had. "This is old news!

Do Men Want Relationships More Than Women?

Women have always been thought of as the ones more focused on relationships, but new research suggests that the roles may actually now be reversed. In a study conducted by the dating site ItsJustLunch.com, 47 percent of men wondered whether there was relationship potential after the first date.
