It's no big secret that the hot and heavy lust of a new relationship almost always fades to a cooler, slower version of itself as our couplehood progresses. But before you worry that all long-term relationships mean chaste, sexless companionship, a new YourTango survey, conducted with MSN's Glo.com and Chemistry.com, leads us to believe otherwise. In a survey about the nature of attraction, 90 percent of our more than 20,000 respondents said that it is possible to reignite attraction in a relationship. Of course, there are some great ways to do this and some not-so-great ways to bring the spark back. According to the survey respondents, here are the five worst ways to reignite attraction in a relationship:
How much power does attraction really hold? A lot, it turns out. While a relationship's flame may flicker, 90 percent of men and women believe that dwindling attraction in a relationship can be rekindled, according to a new survey of over 20,000 people. The survey was conducted by MSN lifestyle website Glo.com, YourTango and Chemistry.com and analyzed by leading biological anthropologist and relationship expert Dr. Helen Fisher.
YourTango, along with Glo.com and Chemistry.com, conducted a massive survey of more than 20,000 men and women on one simple, yet essential, topic: the power of attraction. We found that even if a couple's heat index waxes and wanes over time, 90 percent believe it can be rekindled long-term. And as for that age-old stigma about complacency in our comfortable relationships? Guys cited "lack of romantic love" as the single greatest turn-off as they age. So, it's more important than we all thought.

In the twenty years since Salt-n-Pepper released their 1991 single "Let's Talk About Sex" it seems that Americans have in fact been doing just that: talking about sex—about how it is, and how it could be, how it was, and of course, how it should be! All that talking seems to have paid off! According to a new survey conducted by Zestra and YourTango.com, when asked to answer questions about female pleasure and the health benefits of sex, the majority of men and women responded correctly. Way to go!

If you're feeling frustrated with the dating scene at home, you may want to pack your bags and head to Athens. The Greek capital was just named the World's Most Flirtatious City. How so?

This is a topic close to my heart, as I am married to a techie geek. I'm not insulting him - he would probably take it as a compliment, actually. And well he should. Were it not for my husband's tech prowess, I'd still be rolling paper into our old dot-matrix printer and trying to figure out the fax machine. He has succeeded in dragging his at-times technophobic wife into the 21st century, and truly, it needed to happen. This is a wave - a tsunami - that unless we get on top of, we will find ourselves drowned by.

It seems pretty appropriate that most people think summer is the steamiest month and sexy time cools down in the winter, doesn't it? According to MSNBC, the Associated Press conducted a poll of over 1,000 randomly selected adults to gather statistics on how weather affects our romantic lives. The numbers were taken in late January when snowstorms crashed through the Northeast—and it turns out most people weren't feeling the love during the winter chill. Just eight percent of those polled picked winter as the sexiest month, whereas summer was the most selected at 44 percent.
