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.
"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? Having the traditional birds and bees talk with your child can be complicated enough, let alone discussing all the added intricacies of sexual orientation. However, in our current culture of gay teens committing suicide, and of the recent decision to overturn Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, it is more important than ever for your children—no matter what age they are—to know that they can come to you and discuss these things openly.
Competing with a BlackBerry for your guy's attention? Here's how to win.
That Apple CEO Steve Jobs, who died today, Oct. 5, 2011, was a visionary on a large scale is undisputed, but it's the small-scale personal ways in which he has affected all of our lives that really resonate. And not just by making our lives more convenient with his products, but by inspiring us to live better with his own life.
Apple is unveiling the new iPhone4S, and the Internet is freaking out. Personally I could care less, given my masochistic love of the BlackBerry (three in two years, baby) and the fact that I'm allergic to touchscreens. But the Find My Friends app seems intriguing, at least from a dating perspective.
According to an article in New York magazine, over the last decade the number of women having babies over the age of 50 has doubled. Plus, 25 percent of parents who adopt are over 45. Is this unnatural and unfair to children, or an extension of the women's liberation movement?
It was only a matter of time beside someone decided to take sexting to the next level. A dude by the name of Fabian Hemmert, a designer at the Berlin University of the Arts, is working on three prototypes for phones that can give you actual physical affection that corresponds to the actions of the person on the other end of the line.
Cell phones, tablets, laptops, Playstations and DVRs are all things that can sometimes get in the way of face-to-face communication. If you actually enjoy talking to your mate, how do you get them to put down the latest Apple invention and focus their attention on you? In this video, YourTango expert and marriage educator, Sherry Amatenstein, gives tips to bringing your relationship back into 3D (that's real life). Forget posting on his wall and try "super poking" in person.
I can’t lie to you. I love technology. I do. The gadgets, the games and the advancements that make our lives so much easier are a dream come true. There is however, no sweet without the bitter and no appreciation without the pain. But before we get to ‘the pain,’ I couldn’t perch myself atop a soapbox, blasting the ramifications of these fantasy items without providing a balanced appraisal of just how wonderful these toys can be.
It's widely known that women are underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and math, but who knew romance was the real reason? New research partially funded by the National Science Foundation and published in the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin says that as soon as women start thinking about love, science and math quickly flee their thoughts.
The powers that be behind Match.com make some hefty claims to entice would-be subscribers to lay down $40 a month for membership. They say 20,000 singles join the online dating community every day, and that hundreds of thousands of people find love on the site each year. But one unsatisfied subscriber says these claims are false.
One would think that a cell phone pales in comparison to sex, but according to a new survey from Telenav, a mobile applications company, it doesn't. In fact, one-third of Americans would rather do without sex than without their cell phone. In addition to sex, Americans would also pass on alcohol, chocolate, caffeine, exercise, a toothbrush, shoes and a computer if it meant being able to keep their phone.
I love technology. I just can't get enough of it sometimes- I want the latest gadget, app, hardware or software program. I love that it's made doing business across the world with colleagues a joy, and I love staying in touch with all my family and friends that are scattered far and wide. I can't imagine life without it. However, with all the advances in technology to help us communicate faster, cheaper and clearer, many people are more lonely and isolated than ever before.
How often do you think, "Wow, this is exactly like my relationship" after receiving a 503 server error? Yeah, we never do either, but a comical new blog entry from writer Maile Ohye has shown us the light. In her piece titled "Recovering from a broken heart in HTTP status code," Ohye compares our loves lives to a website directory. Think of yourself as www.you.com. After a breakup, any attempts to land on www.you.com/romantic-interest would only elicit a 404: requested page not found.
