"Have you ever thought about how your political views are impacting your relationships? Whether it be a romantic relationship, work relationship, or friendship; this topic can sometimes be a deal breaker. I see a lot of people who post on Facebook or Instagram that they WILL NOT be associated with Trump supporters or they will befriend those who are supporters. I understand the passion that goes with this particular topic of conversation because it most certainly is heavy. That being said, I do not believe that this conversation should be brought up as an introduction or online with your Facebook "friends" or followers...
"Hi my name is Rachel, nice to meet you! Oh by the way, even though I like you as an individual, if you're voting for so-and-so I can't be friendly with you." Sounds weird in that context, ya? Not only does this make someone uncomfortable, it's isolating. You are now wrapped up in a little tiny box that only has people that agree with you (politically) in it. Congrats!
I have a lot of friends that disagree with me politically and often bring up politics when we're out... I will avoid the conversation completely, smile, and take a huge drink of my cocktail. I don't do this because I am disrespecting their opinion, I do this because I respect my relationship with that person more than discussing what side of the street we stand on.
I believe in America, our potential, and most importantly the men and women who fight for this beautiful place we call the United States of America."

Have you ever been on a great first date that went south after politics came up in conversation? For Bernie Sanders supporters, that might not be a worry since new dating site BernieSingles.com hopes to play Cupid for like-minded politicos. This isn't the first time Sanders' supporters have made headlines with a dating site. Tinder recently banned a number of users who were using the app to convince others to "feel the Bern." All of this dating-app campaigning might be working out as Sanders leads in nationwide polling for the first time in his campaign.
The phrase "I get high from your love," isn't as hyperbolic as we believe it to be, at least according to the research of Dr. Helen Fisher, a fellow at The Kinsey Institute. Fisher claims that our brain responds to romantic love just as it does cocaine and heroin. This explains why it's so easy to stay up all night talking to our significant other. However, the bad news comes when love is lost. In her study, Fisher observed that rejected lovers experience the same symptoms associated with drug withdrawal like vomiting, loss of appetite and depression.
'Female Viagra' finally approved, could make you faint
1) The FDA finally approved Addyi - better known as female Viagra - and low-libido women across the nation rejoiced. Billed as the first prescription drug for treating the female sex drive, the "little pink pill' had twice been rejected by the FDA for its underwhelming effectiveness and concerning side effects. What exactely are those side effects? Fainting, mostly, when mixed with alcohol.
2) Addyi's side effects are so severe that the drug will carry a "boxed warning," the most serious type of warning mandated by the FDA. Consequently, consumer watchdog group Public Citizen predicts that Addyi will be yanked from the market "within a few years" due to its harmful side effects.
3) Is Addyi the real deal? Or a real danger?

Don’t let your Facebook newsfeed fool you, you aren’t the only one of your friends not heading to the altar. According to data whiz Randy Olson, practically no one is getting married anymore. So much so that current American marriage rates are the lowest they’ve ever been, even lower than the numbers posted during The Great Depression. Olson’s deep dive into the world of matrimony took data from the CDC ranging from the 1860s to present day. His definitive conclusion for today’s low marriage rates: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. While Olson’s data pointed to events like the Dust Bowl and World War II as reasons for low marriage rates, no such comparable catastrophe can be attributed to the steady decline seen in marriage rates since the 1980s. Unless you count Tinder creeps as a catastrophe, that is.
