Regardless of how a long-distance relationship comes about and why the two people are forced apart from each other, people will always have something to say. It can be stressful enough to leave everything you know and love — a house, a career, a family — to be with one person, even without the unsolicited opinions of others. The scenario […]
How do you say “I love you” without using words? Perhaps you’d seek the perfect gift for your partner or get cosy for a casual night in.

Marina Monahar is lovesick – and sick of it. Monahar studies communications and multimedia at McMaster University. On top of the stress that comes with having a double major, she’s been dealing with the stress of having a romantic interest in someone who blows hot-and-cold. “We hung out a few times and it was really nice, and we got close […]
