    Tonight, You Had Me

    Tonight, You Had Me

    I often wonder what it would be like if I stayed by your side, if we never broke up. My apartment felt empty the minute you left, and I stuffed your portion of the bed with silence and alcohol.

    The Difference a Mattress Can Make in Your Marriage

    The Difference a Mattress Can Make in Your Marriage

    If you’re an active adult, you’re bound to recognize the value of a good night’s sleep. At the very least, you’re likely familiar with the consequences of a not-so-great night’s sleep—you toss and turn at night, and everything is thrown off-balance. You’re crankier. You’re less productive at work. You’re more easily frustrated by the “little things.”

    New York, Higher Consciousness, and a Slice as Big as Your Head

    New York, Higher Consciousness, and a Slice as Big as Your Head

    She lowers her copy of 'The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks' and sees I am daunted, lost, nervous, and facing the spiky shrew that is my own pride. She smiles at me. It is the direct look-you-in-the-eyes sort of smile, which, in a single moment says; I see you. I know you.

    When You Know, You Know

    Single friends, I am sure you hate this as much as I do. We all have asked the question, hoping for an original, heart-enlightening response; They respond with, "Well, when you know, you know."

    My Impeccably Dressed Boyfriend Was Hiding a Secret at Home

    My Impeccably Dressed Boyfriend Was Hiding a Secret at Home

    When Richard and I met at a book party almost three years ago, he was at the tail end of a long marriage. What first drew us together was our love of style. That night, I chatted so openly with him because I believed he was gay. He was wearing a purple Lanvin suit with a floral tie, a polka-dotted pocket square, and striped socks. I couldn’t believe that a man who dressed so well could actually be straight.

    Let's Discuss Bisexuality and Pansexuality

    Let's Discuss Bisexuality and Pansexuality

    A lot of people seem to pit bisexual and pansexual people against each other. I don't understand why, as we both share a lot of similarities. We both are nonmonosexuals that can be rejected from both the straight and LGBTQ+ communities. We can both be told what our sexualities are based on our partners instead of our own attractions. And yet, despite this, these two identities seem to constantly be butting heads over what these labels seem to define. I want to dive into this debate a bit and explain why both of these labels, as well as others, are important to the community. But first, let's define both of these labels to get a good idea of their differences.

    The 4 Principles of Millennial Dating

    The 4 Principles of Millennial Dating

    “Millennial” is a buzzword that the media just loves to hop on. It seems that every newssource strives to shed light on something as peculiar and revolutionary as the foreign concept of a “new generation.” Through my perspective as a millennial, I’d love to give everyone insight into our mating patterns:
