Successful Online Dating

Online dating is becoming more popular, not only is the number of dating websites available increasing at an alarming rate, but so is the range available.  There are specialised dating sites specifically designed for particular groups who may face difficulties in the dating world, and results from recent studies show that more successful and long-term relationships are formed online than anywhere else.

Why is online dating so popular?

Most people join an online dating site, such as, to find love, and in their quest for finding love they meet a lot of new people and make some valuable friendships. Though they may not yet have achieved their ultimate goal of finding love, they at least feel less lonely, with new friends that understand the hardship of single life.

Relationship Help Forum: Fidelity Issues

The relationship help forum is a regular element here on the Relationship Blog. I take a letter from a woman with a real relationship crisis (sent to me on a relationship forum elsewhere) and edit all the identifiable details so she can't be identified. I know that highlighting these issues here will help this blog's readers who're facing the same situations in their lives, as I also include my answer to the original letter. 

Today's real life relationship story reminds us of how important it is to stay true to ourselves and what we know is right. Sally's (not her real name) story illustrates how we can sometimes allow relationships to make us second-guess even our own conscience. You can see other relationship help forum stories at this page.

It isn’t only difficult on the half that is left behind, it’s also hard on the partner who had to leave.

Relationship Help Forum: Cheating Boyfriend

Welcome to another edition of our relationship help forum, where we share real relationship stories from real women (identifiable details are changed). You can see the more real stories here

Dear Anne,
I’m nearly 19 and have been with this boy for 3 years. Lots of people have been telling me that he’s been cheating on me and a lot of other negative things but I never seem to listen.

Lately he’s been acting really oddly. We speak a lot daily but suddenly he’s always hard to reach. He always says he’s with his friends but when I speak to them they always tell me he was never with them.
I’ve started to accuse him lately and am becoming really obsessive. My mom thinks that I should leave him, but I don’t know what to do. He always denies everything.
