[Re1] Tinder… in Antarctica.
[Re2] William Buckner explains monogamy to Vox.
[Re4] If courtship were a map…
[Re5] Regarding the pedophilia therapy potential with sex robots, I don’t know if it would help or make things worse but I do know we will probably never know because we will never feel comfortable enough with the concept to give it enough room to find out. And I still maintain that help or hurt will probably track to whatever the effects of pornography are.
[Re6] This certainly makes sense to me. While second chances can work out, third (and subsequent) chances rarely do. And in my own history, second chances only “worked out” by providing slightly better closure than the first.
[Re7] A new study suggests that chivalrous chauvinism has its allure.
[Re8] The universal sagely advice is not to sacrifice your future for a teenage boyfriend or girlfriend. Sagely. I at least partially ignored it and let my then-relationship influence my college decision, but I had a good nearby option and no clearly superior option far away. Which is good, since the relationship didn’t work out.
[Re9] First date stories to make you cringe.
