First-date sex: One guy says go for it, even if it ends up being a one-night stand.
First-date sex: One guy says go for it, even if it ends up being a one-night stand. Wise advice? Hard to say, but according to this dude, "Your prince might not call you back if you rail him in the bathroom stall or after he slinks out of your apartment while you’re sleeping. If that happens, cry and wail! Just know that reports of the fragility of the human heart are greatly exaggerated."
Blaming your parents for messing up your life is about as cliche as pointing out that kids speak the truth. A Divine Caroline post featuring children's advice on relationships reveals both ideas really are kinda sorta... true. The site polled a bunch of rugrats on the topics of love, marriage, dating and kissing. While utterly endearing, these responses also offer an interesting case to the nature/nurture debate about gender roles. Kids start picking up on relationship behaviors and attitudes long before they have the vocabulary to address what's going on.
I have a lot of friends and readers who ask me about dead-end relationships. They know they're in them but they're not sure how or if they even want to get out of them.

But, if you don't want to be there, if you can no longer remember why you're there in the first place, if it's just plum not working, how can you stay together? Truly. How?

Don't get your panties in a twist! Shopping for undergarments is easy.
Us romantics subscribe to the notion that, lingerie is a window into a woman's soul. It shows how she feels about herself and how she wants to express herself to her lover. And while communication is essential for any relationship, nowhere does a lover risk potential miscommunication in gift-giving than in the purchase of lingerie!
We've all dated someone too bashful to step inside a Victoria's Secret. That's a recipe for under-the-mistletoe rejection! Fortunately, over in England, a shop called John Lewis thoughtfully created a"lingerie academy" for men, complete with leather couches, Wii and free beer, to take the terror out of T&A gift-giving.
What are these daring men learning? We scoured the observations of the Times of London's brave reporter and here's the top tips for buying lingerie.

Planned Parenthood holiday gift certificates rile anti-abortion groups.
The latest national statistics show 14 percent of Americans are uninsured. Assuming half of them are women, that's approximately 21 million females who might not have affordable access to routine checkups or birth control. Healthcare is certainly an unorthodox gift choice, but what would a wife, mother or sister enjoy more: a new sweater or the ability to catch a disease in its early stages?
