I broke up with my long-term boyfriend recently, and am thinking about re-activating my OkCupid account soon. One thing I discovered in my last relationship is that I'm interested in exploring kinkier sex, as long as it's with someone I trust. My question is: How can I convey this on my profile? I feel like if I say it outright, I might attract a lot more skeezy guys or get explicit messages that I don't want. Should I mention it at all, or save the kink talk for when I meet men in person?

I've been seeing one of my friend's exes. She was a very close friend years ago, but our relationship has dwindled. They were broken up for two years before we got together, but my friend was totally in love with him when they were dating, he broke her heart, and it took her a very long time to get over him, even when she has had other boyfriends, she was still hung up on him. I thought it was just going to be a fling, so I didn't think...

Count me as a guy seriously bummed about Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos' ignominious exit from this year's NFL playoffs, but not for any football reason (although my opinion of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady shares a lot in common with how I view the pus-like fluid that accumulates in the chaffing fat rolls of hippopotamuses). No, I love Tebow and want him to succeed because he is one of those big, bold, brash, larger-than-life public figures who demonstrates so perfectly the utter vapidity and silliness of religion.

Chicago bike messengers say the job isn't all Hollywood hype - but it ain't easy either Charlie Rifenburg knows how it feels to be chased on a bike during a delivery. The 33-year-old courier from Bridgeport wasn't trying to escape some evil conspiracy likeJoseph Gordon-Levitt does in the upcoming big-budget flick "Premium Rush;" he was evading a ticked-off downtown driver. But Rifenburg and other two-wheeled warriors of the road surely could get themselves out of the kinds of jams depicted in the movie, which opens Friday.

Ever get one of those text messages from the guy or girl you're crushing on, and it drives you crazy trying to figure it out? Of course you have. In the interest of promoting a greater dating dialogue, RedEye asked two singles to help out each other - and the dating public at large. Dana Moran and Stephen Markley swapped nine text messages they've received from the opposite sex and volunteered to translate the subtext of the other person's texts on behalf of his or her gender. We've done this exercise once before, and we're doing it...

"CRASH!" "BOOM!" "THUNK!" Those sounds are more of the buildings in Chicago's majestic skyline being turned into kindling. Friends, I write this dispatch from the future. It's June 1, 2012, about 2 weeks after the NATO summit. Everything has changed, and not for the better. We were wrong about that NATO stuff, though. The super-excessive precautionary measures we took? They were a bigger flop than "Waterworld," Y2K, and Chicago's 2016 Olympic hopes combined. Nothing happened.
