Don’t hook up with your ex over the holidays:

“The mind is a very tricky thing. As humans, we have a tendency to romanticize the good parts of the past and gloss over the bad parts. […] Thinking about your ex can be like that. It’s comforting to remember the tender moments exchanging presents or visiting each other’s families, but you’re doing yourself a disservice if you don’t think about the fights or hurt feelings that happened in that period, too.”

Here are some dating apps and what people on them broadly want to find and how to not be rude when you’re on them and how much online investigation to do before your first date.

I will not call my body a temple.”

I wish I’d met you sooner.”

To start having better conversations about interrelationships, stop centering whiteness.

Here’s how to tell if you’re in a dysfunctional relationship, including looking for early red flags, avoiding deterioration, and checking in with your own feelings:

“Are you stressed out a lot? When your partner texts you, do you get a pang of anxiety wondering if they’re about to derail your day with anger or other forms of negativity? Really check in with your emotions, both while you’re with them and when you’re apart. If you feel more relaxed and comfortable away from them, don’t hide that from yourself. You should feel secure in your relationship. Above all, it shouldn’t be adding to the existing stresses in your life, like work, school, or family. There are plenty of unavoidable stressors out there; your relationship should function as a safe haven that enables you to regroup and tackle those with a supportive partner by your side, not compound your issues.”
