Among women who sought abortions in 2008 to 2010, giving birth temporarily prolonged romantic relationships with their male partners, although most romantic relationships ended soon, whether or not the woman had an abortion. However, giving birth increased the likelihood that the women would maintain nonromantic contact with their partners.
The results of a new study suggest that online daters create mental constructs of their potential partners by using online dating profiles to fill-in-the-blanks of who the partner might really be in the offline world—and daters who wait too long to meet in person might find it difficult to accept any discrepancies from their idealized mental construct of their partner.

Among single adults in the U.S., women, regardless of sexual orientation, have less predictable, more varied orgasm experiences than do men, new research indicates.
