What we can learn from sex offenders will surprise you — as well as help you. Prepare to develop compassion where you thought none could ever exist.

Getting into a relationship based on equality doesn't just happen; you have to build it.
OK, so that last boyfriend was a real pain. Good riddance to him but, how to find one of the good ones?
