They say that the No. 1 killer of relationships is cheating. Wrong. I say that the No. 1 killer of relationships is technology. Back in the day, relationships were more simple. Before technology and Tinder came around, relationships were more sincere. You would meet someone in person, maybe at the movies or scho...

Around winter time, single people everywhere begin to feel lonely. With no one to cuddle with, the idea of being single seems less exciting. Come November, cuddle and holiday season is in full effect. Holiday season also serves as a time for students to unwind and take a break from the fall semester....

I wonder if it will be out of sight, out of mind with friends I have made at Chico State. College students live life in transition, only settling down for months at a time before packing their bags again. I have had new neighbors and classmates every semester for the past three years. I re...

It seems harder today to fully embrace a relationship in the vague surrounding haze of romantic potential. This is especially true for myself, and I find more and more there is only one solution. Leave every other interest behind. If you want your significant other to feel like one chapter ...

I was head over heels in love. It was finally here, the moment I had been waiting for and never believed would arrive. I was completely enamored with this boy I could now call my own, and nothing else mattered. I spent every spare moment in his presence, and although we fought more than we got al...

There are no soul mates, and there is no ultimate love. The concept of love is mostly scientific as an evolutionary tool to promote long-term relationships and raise offspring through the neurological release of chemicals like dopamine, pheromones, oxytocin, etc. The bonding that results is natur...

In the two years that I've been at Chico State, I've noticed that not many people are close to their parents. I'm fortunate to say that I am. I can tell my parents anything — even about the times that I do stuff that I'm not suppose to. My mom and I text almost every day. She either remi...

Too often have I heard the bitter complaint, “nice guys always finish last”. And who is to blame for this terrible mistreatment? Girls. It's because, of course, girls are always choosing the wrong guys. The jock, the jerk, the bad boy, the musician. . . Because clearly all of these types...
