A few inconvenient truths about men and cheating. Disclaimer: This is from a very male perspective.

These Thanksgiving dinner meet-his-family don'ts are a recipe for disaster.
Whether you've been dating for weeks or years, the first holiday meal you spend at his family's house is unnerving. Hopefully, you've met his family before this big day, though maybe you haven't.

10 reasons I'm thankful for being single, or anything else that comes my way, on Thanksgiving.

We've all been in relationships where, at times, we've felt more like a mom or a secretary than a significant other.
