New research study claims that online dating has a "shopping cart" mentality. Dating sites disagree.
Unless you’ve been living in a cave, you probably thought the stigma associated with online dating had already disappeared. However, a team of five researchers has published a report in the February issue in the journal, Psychological Science in the Public Interest to spread the news we already knew. It's ok to tell your friends you've joined an online dating site.
No one @YourTango would EVER tweet during sex. #sex #study #socialmedia #obviousthings
In a perfect, sexually satisfied world, people would give up just about anything to do the deed. "The dishes need to be done? Let's have a quickie first, honey. Need to update your Facebook status? Not until you reach a climax, mister!"
Is your man attached at the hip to his phone? Here's how to separate them.
You're sitting at the table as a family enjoying a nicely prepared dinner. Your man sits across from you with his Blackberry or iPhone resting next to his fork.

Would you wear a dress that clearly shows a guy you're interested in him?
I introduce you to the most important invention in the history of the (dating) world: the transparent(ly obvious) dress. Okay, "history of the dating world" may be an exaggeration, but for women who have a hard time communicating their desire for a certain guy, well, now there's a dress that does the flirting for you.
How an iPhone app called the A-Hole Tester helped me finally cut a loser loose.
"Does he call you less than when you first started dating?" "Does he make an effort to get to know you?" "When you think of him, do you smile or want to grab the vodka?" I'm being bombarded with questions about the guy I'm currently seeing — important ones that I should be answering honestly—but they're not coming from my best friend (or my mom, who's always been my own personal relationship guru).

According to En Moi, the makers of the "Is My Son Gay?" application for the Android phone, it was only supposed to be a joke. It came under immediate controversy, and was officially pulled from the Android marketplace last Friday afternoon. Although it was clearly mired in offensive stereotypes, and was devoid any scientific research, its very existence likely left some parents thinking: Wouldn’t it be nice if we did have an app for that?

And not just by making our lives more convenient with his products, but by inspiring us to live better with his own life.
