I've spent the last year-and-half dating dudes from OKCupid, but now I'm in a place where I'm looking for a more serious relationship. I've been looking for alternatives to OKC, as well as meeting dudes IRL (in real life), and I've been thinking that JDate would be a good match for me. I was raised Catholic, and my family still celebrates Christmas and Easter, but I find that I have the best relationships with Jewish guys. What's the etiquette for joining a site like this when I'm not actually Jewish?

I've had a booty call relationship with a guy for a while. I haven't seen him in probably two months, but we used to hang out every couple of weeks.

In a study published in the European Journal of...

Is it possible to support same-sex marriage at the same time that I don't support marriage in general? I respect and love my gay friends and certainly wouldn't want to deny them any of their rights, but I've never believed in marriage as an institution, and I find myself at odds. --Confused but Hopeful Dear Confused, For those of you who have missed all the hullabaloo and the red equality signs on Facebook and Twitter, the Supreme Court has been hearing two gay rights cases this week: Prop.

I don't normally use my massive platform as a cultural and political force here at the 16 th highest trafficked blog at RedEye to stick it to individual companies. After all, in the pursuit of a reliable and profitable business, all companies make mistakes. New Coke, Starbury sneakers, the George Clooney Batman movie - bad products surface. Yet after ordering lackluster Chinese food with a friend the other night, I fear I cannot maintain silence on this one. No, it's not the lackluster Chinese food establishment that sparked my white-hot ire,...

Welcome to spring! It'll still be cold for two more months , but that doesn't mean we can't dream about putting our ski masks away and of summer hookups to come. With a new season comes a new quick 'n' dirty column , advice for the short of attention but long of time-wastiness. My really good friend is in a sticky situation. He and his girl have been dating for about four months, and they're perfect for each other, but she's moving to Africa to go into the Peace Corp for two years!
