Men in Love

I have a new Studied column in this Sunday’s Styles section of the New York Times about relationship woes and men. A new study suggests that young men suffer more when relationships are going poorly. Meanwhile, women care more about whether they’re in a relationship or not, no matter the quality of the bond. What do you think? viagra generic Make sense? I’d love to hear peoples’ hypotheses as to why this may or may not be true. Helen Fisher weighs in, as well.

Does Moving as a Child Create Adult Baggage?

Yesterday I wrote about a new study highlighting potential problems for people who move a lot during childhood. The study raised a lot of interesting questions, some of which it answered statistically, some hypothetically. Does moving during childhood negatively affect people? Do the affects last past childhood, shaping who we are as adults? Do the reasons for the move matter? Are children whose parents from the military different from other kids in the way their experience dislocation? I found that the comments posed on The New York Times website, where people really opened up and shared their own experiences, really enriched the story. I was also very excited to see that the story hit the top 25 most emailed stories for the entire NYT website. And I am grateful to Lisa Belkin for pointing readers to the story on her Motherlode blog.
