Can we add more options for the Contacts' relationship categories?

I find the options in the Contacts form for relationships somewhat limiting. I know this is trivial but I can't help thinking it could be awesomer. [more inside]

When the search fails, the going gets boring.

Looking for a comment on AskMe, probably within the last few months, that linked to an article about powering through a relationship after the honeymoon period was over. [more inside]

Birds do it, bees do it, even couples on AskMe do it...

Good evening. I am considering the purchase of an account on MetaFilter for my fiancee. She may find it of use for work (academic librarianship, cataloging), domestic (cats, pies) and leisure; I've sent her pointers to FPPs on here which she has found of interest, and she may be able to contribute questions and comments to AskMe. But... [more inside]

Quonser-Quonsee Relations

A tiny Quonsmas pony for all! Could we get some sort of "Quonsed" option for the relationships list when we're adding contacts? [more inside]

There may not be fifty ways but there are more than one.

Ugh, I'm just going to say it: continuously posting to this breakup advice in Ask is lazy and more often than not it doesn't really fit the situation. I wish people would speak to the actual specific break-up someone is asking about or just stay out of it. [more inside]

The pony is too cute.

When adding a contact, the reasons you can give are all positive. But those aren't the only reasons you can have for wanting their posts on your sidebar. [more inside]

!@#$%

Where did this come from???
    mount their female friends and some how continue to think they can commence with the mounting

How does it feel?

Just wanted to call attention to an AskMe that really takes you on a roller-coaster ride -- opening with sadness, stopping off at beauty, providing lots of warm fuzzies throughout, stopping off for a surprising dollop of disgust on the way to inexplicable hilarity (ymmv), and ending up being a great reference point for anybody in a relationship.

Ask the Moral Compass

A recent AskMeFi question: Should I have this affair?. Some responses: Is there any personal honor left in this world? Have you no sense of decency? Your tone is one of weakness before you fuck up his life with your own selfish interests Question 1: Why are some people in this community judgemental? Question 2: Do people practice what they preach? Has anyone ever given advice that does not reflect the way that they themselves live their life?

What's with all the drama loving going on?

Annon posts a question asking if a guy likes her. The thread is 4 days old and still open. Annon posts a new question asking the same thing. Why was that allowed?

Lord knows we're just trying to help

Why so defensive, sequential? Lord knows we're just trying to help, but you're making it kinda difficult.

Stay on subject in relationship filter

Can we try not to hijack a relationship thread with judgements about "breeders"?

Why are people so "end the relationship"-happy on Ask Metafilter? I see a Newsweek article in 2010 discovering the cause behind the 10% increase in the divorce rate is the Little Green Website That Could ...

"Bullshit, and fuck you for assuming that."

"Bullshit, and fuck you for assuming that." -- I've observed that without further insight into the poster behind relationship questions, most people will naturally make their own assumptions and bring their own personal experiences to bear. If you're going to put yourself "out there" like this (and I question whether this is a good use of Ask Metafilter since these questions have no real "right" answer) then you also need to be a bit more patient with those who respond -or, don't respond at all.

Subdividing AskMe?

It feels like AskMe questions come in Straight Dope and Dear Abby sorts (among others), with a lot more recently that can only be answered by personal anecdote. Evidently the community wants them (I read and appreciate them). Might splitting them off into a new color help keep AskMe from drowning in its success?

Crush isn't Crushing

It was discussed in the Philly meetup thread, but this is the official thread complaining about the fact that the "crush" contact option doesn't seem to work.

anonymous has some serious relationship problems

Once I ran to you, I ranNow I'll run from youThis tainted love you've given
75% of this "anonymous" guy's output is love-related. I keep reading that we suck at politics, we suck at religion, we suck at (insert your favorite pet peeve here). I dare to suggest that, no disrespect intended, we suck at giving love advice (assuming that giving useful love advice is actually possible, which I doubt). Is this just a coincidence, or we'll use the anonymous feature mainly to turn AskMeFi into Mr/Mrs LonelyheartsFilter/BrokenheartsFilter?

A Pony made of (Kevin) Bacon

There are so many interesting relationships here. I would enjoy a search function that queried two users and parsed them for shared threads. The output would contain all the threads that both user A and user B posted to--possibly with other criteria, such as key words? If this has been suggested before, I haven't been able to find it.
