Disney corrupted us pretty much from birth, training us that we should expect our princes to come rescue us. And now, thanks to Meg Ryan, Julia Roberts, and our other favorite leading ladies, we think that we have to rescue our relationships. WE DON’T. Sometimes, just cutting your losses is your smartest course of action.

The Johnstons and Palins have been lashing out at each other in wildly inappropriate ways since the last election.

If you're looking for a unique way to spice up your dating routine (anyone else tired of dinner and a movie?), get to know another side of your partner, and simply have fun, try some of these ideas.
