    You've been dating someone special for a while now, and it's definitely going somewhere. In fact, it's going so well you've lost interest in the other guys you were maybe dating. You're telling your girlfriends about him and you stop just short of calling him your boyfriend because ... is he your boyfriend yet? And if you've stopped dating other guys, has he stopped dating other women, too? Lady, it's time to Define The Relationship -- also known as the "what are we" talk. And it's not as hard as it seems.

    After Robert Pattinson was spotted with Katy Perry at Coachella over the weekend, we've all had one burning question on our brains. Um, where the hell was Kristen Stewart?!?

    The last we heard, she and her friends were planning on heading to the festival to celebrate her 24th birthday. Of course, she was hoping Rob was going to join them so they could rekindle the flame and fall in love all over again or whatever.

    But then that pic of him partying with Katy turned up, and lo and behold, KStew was nowhere in sight.

    What gives?!?

    We joke sometimes about the excuses women use to get out of sex with their husbands. But after the laughter dies down there's always that uncomfortable truth that goes unsaid: It's probably better for your relationship if you just tell the truth. But how? The reason most women avoid saying NO to sex is because we're afraid of hurting the the men we love.

    We talked with three relationship experts for their advice on dancing the dance of not-in-the-mood. How can you turn it into a positive -- or can you?

    I haven't always been a huge fan of long road trips. To be honest, it was just an incredibly intimidating thought. I couldn't imagine spending endless hours in a car with anyone as an adult. Perhaps it was all those family car trips in the '70s that left me a bit traumatized. My mother had this insane fear of rest stops so we traveled with a bucket. Yes, a bucket.

    So when my boyfriend and I decided to take a road trip to Miami, Florida (from Washington, DC), there was a mix of excitement and panic. I LOVED the idea of going on vacation with him. I loathed the thought of getting there. This would really be a test of our relationship. If all didn't go well, I might come back a single, albeit sun-kissed, woman.

    Despite those fears, we planned our 20-hour trek. I didn't know it at the time, but that trip essentially sealed the deal on our romance. Here's how.

    Jenelle Evans has had more than her fair share of critics when it comes to her pregnancy with her second son Kaiser. Well, "fair share" may be a relative term, as the critics may argue that she more than deserves the scrutiny, given her history of drugs, arrests, and absentness as a mom to her firstborn Jace.

    In a Teen Mom 2 Featured Moment with baby daddy Nathan Griffith, Jenelle said that despite all the naysayers, she's "really happy" and just hopes "this baby's healthy and happy." She also said that she hopes that Jace gets along with him. Does that mean she's ready to try to get custody back from her mom? Hmmm ...

    It's amazing what can happen sometimes when two people decide that just because they share a child doesn't mean that the best thing is necessarily for them to be together.

    Take Maci Bookout and Ryan Edwards, for instance. Anyone that's watched the early seasons of Teen Mom can attest that these two had quite the troublesome relationship. They really just don't seem to like each other much. But now they are working together as co-parents for their son Bentley's sake and even supporting each other personally on Twitter

    First dates can be very tricky. On the one hand, you want to find out enough about the other person to decide whether or not a second date is warranted. However, since it's your first time meeting a total stranger, you don't want to overwhelm that person with heavy questions that suck all of the fun and breeziness out of the encounter. I'm a fan of asking one or two pointed questions that are very important to you, such as, "Do you want children?" "Do you want to be married?" etc., so you don't even start with someone who is on a whole other relationship planet than you. There are, however, are nine questions that should NEVER be asked on a first date.

    Finding out that your spouse has cheated on you has to be one of the most devastating gut punches a person can experience. It doesn't matter if things were rocky already, or if the unsuspecting party had no clue there was trouble in paradise -- it's a betrayal in its most intimate form.

    So you got emotionally knocked flat on your back by a confession wrought after you uncovered some suspicious texts or receipts, or maybe even a sheepish unsolicited absolution of guilt. Well now what? What is the right thing to do when infidelity enters a marriage? Will you be a shmuck if you stay? Are you throwing the baby out with the bathwater if you go?

    There are some classic mistakes that women make with men. So classic that I honestly wish a book was made of them -- a rule book -- and women had to read it in high school. And then take a test on it. Like 50 tests. And they had to memorize every single word.

    But there is no Relationship 101 unless you count the ones in the School of Hard Knocks. You have to live it or have your friends live it -- sometimes multiple times -- for the lessons to kick in. And sometimes then they don't even stick. But, boy, if every woman knew these classic mistakes, and to avoid them, before plunging into the dating world in their early 20s, what a different experience love could be for those ladies. Here are 6 classic mistakes women make with men.
