Over the long term, things can erode slowly and a healthy relationship can be unhealthy without you even realizing it.
It's hard to bounce back from, but it turns out that if your partner has cheated in previous relationships, then science wants you to be extra careful.
Even if you have a strong relationship generally, if you fight badly then pretty soon that toxicity is going to seep into other areas of your relationship.
Even if you were like me and had decent sex ed, it's not like they go into the details about how sex works. You're not getting an instruction manual, you're getting an aerial view.
Some people are happy to see how things go, while others really want to know if there's a future in something.
But we really shouldn't worry because how often you have sex depends on you and your relationship.
But not everyone agrees, and some experts think that the occasional little white lie — in the right place and done for the right reason — can actually make your relationship run along more smoothly.
If so, you're not alone — but new research shows that the result of endless scrolling might not be as straightforward as you would think.
Whether you like to be in control or take more of a backseat, these positions have you covered. You can mix them up however you please.
It's easy to do, because not speaking up — or even telling the occasional little white lie — can seem innocent and it often comes from an innocent place.
