What Keeps Us Together? (Biologically Speaking)

Tweet Amid all the high-minded and sweet sentiments, it’s always helpful to brush up on the actual biology and neuroscience behind the whole relationship thing. Scientists have been picking at brains and bodies of lovers for generations, trying to distill (for one reason or another) the whys and wherefores of romance and lust. What they’ve […]

The Perfect Valentine’s Day

Tweet We’re less than two weeks out from one of the biggest “relationship” holidays there is. As far back as the 17th century, giving cards was the thing to do.

One that hopeless romantics like myself […]

New Month, New Topic, You Decide

Tweet Of course, I have no idea what that topic should be! My pile of not-quite-finished posts and musings taunts me regularly.
