When you're in a serious, long-term relationship, the terms "boyfriend" and "girlfriend" can begin to feel a bit juvenile, or at least insufficient for describing your level of commitment.
80 teens from across the country responded. In highly personal, wise, humorous and sometimes searing letters, teens reflect on how illness-- and accompanying isolation from peers and cherished friendships - has changed their relationships and their lives.
To be 100 percent honest, when we're away from you, we don't miss you that much. We might say it, but in reality, we like our man cave time. We don't have to listen to your stories about the drama at work. We don't have to pretend that we're interested in your annoying friend Amanda.
I am dating a man who strives everyday to be the person his father would be proud to see and I for one, am proud to be by his side. To all those who have witnessed how loss can change the person you once knew, take a minute to appreciate the honorable man they have become.
Don't let anyone hold you back. You'll end up regretting not ending things and discovering what else is out there. If you're clinging to a relationship just because it's all you know then it's not worth it.
I would like to say that I feel bad for them, but I don't. I do feel sad for the wives and families that will be affected by the douchery of a few idiotic men who couldn't figure out that they should at least CHANGE THEIR NAMES before going out and soliciting an affair.

I have arrived at the following five things that guys (of all ages) often do in the course of their relationships with the women they love--things that they should definitely stop doing if their goals are have their significant others grow to love them more, not less.
When my boyfriend is quiet, my first instinct is to ask, "what's wrong?" I guess that's the 'mother-side' of me trying to make him and the situation better. I hate to see him hurting, sad, angry or upset, so I try to do everything in my power to help him.
Benjamin Franklin argued that we should employ accounting techniques to select the right romantic counterparts. Jonathan William, apparently a romantic, responded by saying, before taking a wife, a man "must fall in love... and that seems to be as involuntary an act as falling into a well.
Just because a romantic relationship expires doesn't mean a new connection can't eventually evolve. Becoming friends with an ex can be complex, but not impossible.
An acquaintance once told me that exes who remain in communication with each other are either f*cking or fighting, and while it does seem to be true in many cases, I think there's a third way.
I wouldn't change my boyfriend's odd and strange habits for the world. He's a bit off his rocker at times when he makes strange noises and licks my face, but hey, I wouldn't have it any other way.
