"See a play, go to a new location, go to a horse race." Why does advice for keeping a relationship alive always seem so worthless? Maybe science has the answer!
We've commented before on the awfulness of dating, flirting, and sex advice — especially when provided by, say, a women's magazine.

Jessica Pauline Ogilvie's piece in the LA Times about the science of romantic love offers some reasons why.
