Tilted Relationships

Lately, I've noticed that the Titled Sexuality board has been overrun with relationship questions. Many threads are not strictly sexual in nature. Now, of course there's a great overlap between sexuality and relationships, but I think there's enough of a distinction between the two to maybe warrant a separate board. Moreover, there are a lot of relationship-related questions on other boards. Just a thought.

Love,
Sabrina

This is the way it's always been.. sexuality is always more of a relationship type board, although I would've thought that when Tilted Life was added, those type of threads would go there.. and they probably should really since most people associate life and relationships in the same thread. :shrug:

So basically, I'm saying unless the thread is about sexual conduct in a relationship (that' pretty expandable) then it should go in Tilted Life.

I concur. We don't need more doors, we just need people to read the labels.

Could we somehow make it more clear for newbies who come by in regards to which forum they should post in? We get a lot of people who come here once just to post about relationship woes, and these posts often have nothing to do with sex.

Yeah, I was once a "newbie" and did exactly that because I had a hard time figuring out where to post my self-centered I'm-the-only-man-on-the-planet-that-has-felt-this drivel. Hah, I think I posted in Tilted Life and Tilted Philosophy... with the same post. (searches for "Harlot") Yep. God, that Crompsin guy? Such a loser.

Tilted Life kinda encapsulates the whole human experience, but the "subcategories" like Tilted Sexuality help put it in its more general purpose role as a place to discuss the typical emo-ridden exboygirlfriend issues.

...

Improved labeling of forums might help. That and it'll keep Tilted Sexuality sexy.

I like the setup of TFP a lot, but it might not hurt to have some additional subheadings.

Oh, I don't know. I was just messin' around. Probably not very ethical to do that.

...

I don't think it would be good to frame people's important life problems as emo.

I certainly wouldn't want mine framed like that... unless I was doing said framing.

Tilted Life is good. Tilted Sexuality takes the hip thrusts outta it to a more focused place.

It does a good job, I think.

I've put the sticky in sexuality.. all the relationship threads go in Tilted Life now. Unless it's a sexual issue in the relationship then it can go into sexuality.

Although, I must say, as the former Captain Fucking Emo, the Tilted Emo would've been a great idea

I remember Crompsin's first post, I think it was in the shoutbox, and was so incredibly misogynistic, that I had to pm a Mod. You've come along way since then.

When I see one of those "woe is me" type of posts, the first thing I do is click on their profile. If it says that they joined in 2003 and this is their 2nd post, I click the 'back' button and go looking for something more worthy to read.

...that's what you think. World's King simply taught me more eloquent ways to say the same kinda things.

I disagree with you and the OP. Originally, there was a sticky that said that all relationship questions should be written in the person's journal (now known as their blog) since people read those and can leave useful comments.

If not that, then relationship questions should stay in Tilted Sexuality, since if you're having trouble with your SO, you'll miss out on expressing your sexuality.

if it's sexuality problem then it goes in sexuality.. if it's merely a relationship problem then it goes in tilted life. There are various issues that come up in relationships that have absolutely nothing to do with sex or sexuality in any form. If the relationship problem is a sexuality problem then by all means put it there, but if it's "how do I talk to girls" or "does she still like me?!" or "She cheated what now" threads..they go in tilted life.
