About YourTango Experts

YourTango Experts was born out of the idea that in order to be the premier advice site on the web, YourTango would need to bring together the smartest and brightest voices in the love and relationships community. And while our staff includes brilliant leaders, authors, and entrepreneurs, it's you, the Experts, who make YourTango Experts so unique and special. Together, we bring a little more joy and a lot of expertise to the otherwise frustrating quest for love and happiness.

Over the past year we have scoured the web for the tools, tips and services that helping professionals need in order to create thriving practices. We also did a deep-dive into what readers need in order to feel both comfortable and motivated to connect with experts. Look around: you'll find all of those services here.

Our readers have diverse needs. They include single women struggling to find love, newly single men ready to start dating again, couples overcoming infidelity, parents coping with their kids' behavioral problems, individuals seeking spiritual guidance … and everything in-between. Our goal is to be a single-stop for experts and readers alike so we can bridge together people in need with those who offer the best advice, tools and experience for solving life and love’s most troubling headaches.

If you're an expert looking to grow your business, connect with potential clients, develop smart products or simply want to interact with your peers, this is one site you must join. Likewise, if you're someone interested in self-help, an avid reader on how to create a happy, joyous love life, or you're simply looking the smartest tips to how to live your "best life," this is also the site for you,

1. Boyfriend proposes using virtual reality headset 

A Californian man used a virtual reality headset to create the perfect proposal full of sweet memories from their early courtship days for his bride-to-be. Article Ideas: How to plan the perfect marriage proposal, How has technology has changed the way people show love? 

2. Rendeevoo Is A Dating App That Cuts Straight To Cocktails 

A new dating app claims to help you find dates without all the awkward online small talk first. Each person submits a date and time that they are free to meet up for a drink, and those with similar availabilites can be set up. Article Ideas: Is this type of app (Tinder included) contributing to "hookup culture?" Can people actually find love through apps like Tinder and Rendeevoo that omit personality in finding a "match?" Are men who use these apps more likely to try to use a woman for her physical attributes rather than get to know her? 

Article Ideas: Why parents should never fight in front of their children, How divorce affects not just children's mental

health but their physical health as well, Why showing your child positivity is so important

4. You're Sexier In Springtime

Our bodies are biologically predispositioned to be more receptive to love in the Spring.

Article Ideas: Why Spring is the perfect time to get out and meet someone new, Why men find women more attractive in the

Spring, Why women are more receptive to men's advances in the warmer months


1. Kanye's nude pics of Kim

Kanye West posted nude photos of wife Kim Kardashian on Twitter (link above) proclaiming how lucky he is to be married to

her. As usual, most normal people are shaking their heads as to why he'd share naked pics of his daughter's mother with the entire world. (Think about Teen Mom turned porn star Farrah Abraham.)

ARTICLE IDEAS: While we're not superstars and our pics aren't likely to be broadcast globally, should parents be concerned

about their kids seeing the sexy selfies they post on Facebook or the naughty nudies they text to their husband or boyfriend? What should a parent do if their kid does see photos of them naked?

2. Kids and chores

Only 28 percent of parents make kids do chores even though 82 percent of them had chores growing up (link above). Instead, children are spending their time outside of school practicing Chinese, martial arts, soccer and hip-hop even though years of research have shown that doing household chores actually help children succeed in life. ARTICLE IDEAS: Why should kids be doing household chores? What are the benefits? What chores are age appropriate? How can you motivate kids who've never done them before? Are we making childhood too easy for kids? 

3. "Sex helps your career" and other surprising benefits of getting on the regular

ARTICLE IDEAS: New research shows that people who have more sex do better in their careers. Are there any other surprising benefits of sex, both physical, emotional, professional, etc.?
