In response to no small amount of kvetching I’ve been doing on Twitter about relationships in the past few weeks, some of my writing compatriots have been inspired to look at some of the cultural factors involved in romantic self-deception. Namely, fairy tales (and religious thinking but that hasn’t come up yet). I…
You’ve got problems, I’ve got advice. This advice isn’t sugar-coated—in fact, it’s sugar-free, and may even be a little bitter. Welcome to Tough Love.
Round 2 is over! The semi-finals are here! And boy has this been a tough race. Just two more days to go now.
This is it folks: the final day of the first round of our Valentine’s Day bracket. Who among those that remain will move on to Round 2?
The nominations have been made! Now it’s time to vote!
There’s no mistaking that the last few months have been kind of a bummer. Heck, the last year maybe. And for many Valentine’s Day is kind of bittersweet.

So after discovering some weirdos on GT think robots falling in love is the greatest love story ever told I'd like your thoughts on what your favorite loves, love stories, romances, in movies are. Feel free to add more than one movie! Any underrated ones?
There's a lot to celebrate about science fiction romance novels — apart from anything else, they're one of the fastest-growing areas of the genre, and they're getting a lot of people reading science fiction.
