Agree or Disagree: You need chemistry to fall in love.

One of the definitions of chemistry is the complex emotional or psychological interaction between two people.

Some feel that chemistry can be a little misleading. This above article presents 6 chemistry myths that can lead to an assumption of if you, or you are not in love.

They are

1) Love happens instantly, you must be absolutely sure from the beginning, you’ll know when you find it, and “chemistry” is all you need

2) Physical lust is always the same as love

3) You can’t fall in love with someone you are not immediately excited about.

4) You can’t fall in love with an old friend.

Agree or Disagree: There is a healthy way to deal with your partner’ s exes.

When it comes to partner’s exes, this can be a complex issue. Some relationships have a deeper and longer history than others. But, more and more, this is an issue that has to be contended with. As well as tough to handle.  Which can lead to more complications.

I’m sure some of you will have some experiences to share about this. Is there a healthy way to deal with your partner’ sexes?

What are your thoughts?


Agree or Disagree: There is a right way to talk to teens about sex.


There comes a time when this has to happen. If you are a parent, you have had this happen. The all important question, some kids ask you as a parent.

“Mom, Dad, where do babies come from?”

For someone younger, this is an easy answer. You can say, the stork, the mall, or something else simplistic.

However, there will be a time where this will not be easy. Why?

Because they will be teenagers.

And as you doubt are aware, being a teenager and the topic of sex is complex.

The  fact is 48% of teenagers will be sexually active before the age of 16. The other fact is that if they are NOT active, they are thinking about it. Because we at one time or another, we all think about sex.

So, from personal perspective , or if you are a parent of a teenager, is there a right way or a wrong way to deal with the topic of teenagers and sex? Is there any topic you should avoid with teenagers?


Agree or Disagree: Adultery is becoming more socially acceptable.


This is an article from  Eleanorewells about the current perception on adultery. 

I’ll let you read it and unpack her perspective. However, this quote I want to point out.

The declining incidence of marriage, the growing rate of cohabitation, and the steady divorce rate could lead one to conclude that marriage has become less sacred. People may be starting to acknowledge the reality that “til death do us part” is, perhaps, unrealistic in many cases and that sometimes married people fall in love with people who are not their spouses.  Studies show that infidelity is on the rise.  Adultery may have become less scandalous because we see so much of it. In pop culture, we know who’s cheating with who, and why, and even the aftermath of having been caught.

Do you think adultery is becoming more socially acceptable?

Agree or Disagree: Flirting well is more effective than looking good.

Agree or Disagree: Flirting well is more effective than looking good.

The above article is from The Week. This is a portion of it to give you a taste of reading the rest.


Dr. Monica Moore, a psychologist at Webster University in St. Louis, has conducted research on the flirting techniques used in singles bars, shopping malls, and places young people go to meet each other. She concluded that it’s not the most physically appealing people who get approached, but the ones who signal their availability and confidence through basic flirting techniques like eye contact and smiles. Just signaling your interest in someone gets you halfway there, whether you’re a man or a woman.
