The Friction, Differences and Karma Meters: every couple faces a certain set of challenges, and the number and type of challenges determine whether your relationship will be merely interesting or out-and-out difficult.

Color you green, because you're feeling possessive and ill-tempered. You landed yourself a big fish this time: powerful, magnetic, impressive. Every head turns when you walk in the room with this special someone on your arm, and you like it. You've been basking in the reflected glow of you...
Yikes! Your love relationship can be a rather tense place to be. Your partner may or may not be playing a little footsie with someone else. Whether it's gone all the way is unclear, but what is crystal clear is the tension it's caused. Pockets are gone through. Emails are intercepted. Phon...
You've never been a model of serene stability, but sometimes your jitters are near-constant. Have you been sleeping poorly? Eating junk food, or almost nothing at all? Craving cigarettes and other illicit substances? And hey, how are those dreams? It's true; your love life's been going dow...
