If you’re jealous of a partner’s friend, here’s how to stop:

“Just because it’s normal to feel jealous, though, doesn’t mean jealous feelings should be consuming your thoughts or coloring your interactions with the person you’re dating. If you’re not sure whether you should talk to your partner about why one of their other relationships makes you uncomfortable—or if you’re tired of half-broaching the topic in a way that makes you both feel pissed and confused—take a few deep breaths, then take some time to unpack why you want to that about “that friend” and figure out how to have a productive conversation.”

Whatever you think of the Olympics, and to be clear I am against them, the anti-sex rhetoric around them is also bad. “Sex between athletes at the Olympic Village has notoriously been a problem“? Since when is sex a problem? If I were incredibly hot and at my professional and physical peak under a very stressful set of circumstances and surrounded by people who shared my common experience and who were also at their professional and physical peaks, why wouldn’t we all bang it out? Anyway! /rant

Here’s how to lock a door that doesn’t have a lock.

Are you ready to move in with a partner?:

“[I]t’s imperative that individuals be honest about their income and come to conclusions about whether they’ll attempt a 50/50 split on the rent and utilities or divvy costs in ratios that make more sense based on how much they both earn. If one partner is making triple what the other makes, it isn’t unheard of for that partner to pay more in rent.

If that suggestion causes an argument, it’s time to seriously consider whether the union is a real partnership. Disagreements at the outset of the home hunt can point to larger issues that will more than likely crop up once you’re settled in.”

  1. These Olympics are hella different, that’s for sure. But sex will be had, of that I’m also sure.

    Besides, isn’t there always some complaint about the Olympic Village furnishings not being “accommodating” for sex?

    Nothing a little motivation and athleticism can’t fix.

  2. Many of those 15 relationship questions are good, but a few of them came off as monogamy-centric and/or edging a bit too close to codependency imo – namely the ones about being best friends, sharing social media passwords, and thinking more of “we” than “you” and “I” (it’s the “more” I object to in that last one rather than the idea itself).
