Anyone Else Have To Deal With Relatives

…who only see you during the holidays and consistently ask if you have a significant other yet? Funny how they never ask in a casual manner, it’s always with a subtle side of judgment and slight disdain for your constant singlehood.

Today, I’m going to talk about dominance and submission in regards to relationships, and male-female ones in particular. Hopefully it will rouse some good talking points, and get this subject out in the open away from Judeo-Christian lines.

Friend Zoning: A View From Both Sides

The Friend Zone. What exactly is it? Can one party truly be oblivious to it, or is it just “all in the mind” of the other? What steps can be taken to avoid being “friend zoned” in the first place? Why is there a problem being “friend zoned”, anyway?
Today, I’m going to dissect this phenomena and attempt to air it out for discussion.

What exactly IS the friend zone?

We’ve all heard the stories; a guy finds a girl he likes and attempts to woo her with numerous favors, dinners, help with home repairs, unconditional emotional support and so on. (Of course, if she is a true friend, she’ll provide the same.)
