    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    My relationship role model is...

    It's something to think about.

    Life is too short, so kiss slowly, laugh insanely, love truly and forgive quickly.

    I would have to say, my grandparents. Partly, anyway. They showed me that long term relationships are possible. My parents, also. They showed me that love was more than just loving each other. That there was work involved. Unfortunately, their lack of communication drove them apart. Appearantly, i learned that lesson the hard way myself. Communication is key to long term relationships

    I have a new relationship role model, President Obama. He has been married for twenty years, and he still call Michelle "Sweety". Now that, is wonderful!

    Thanks, Chrissy. Great question! Dennis

    Thank you Dennis!

    Dennis I have to agree with you, the Obama's are a good example.

    Thank you for sharing that and I'm so glad you had your grandparents as an influence!

    Communication is everything, in any and all relationships, that much I know.

    We live and learn.
