    Hi Larry smile

    If you're going to have "dating tips" under "men" I think it would be good to have it under "women" as well.

    I also think you might want to add "Abusive Women & Unhealthy Relationships" to the "men" category, similarly to how it already is in the "women" category, because domestic abuse can be from either side.

    It might also be good to put "Domestic Abuse" under the "relationship issues" heading.

      Hi Isabella,

      Thanks for noticing that.  I had intended to keep the men and women categories pretty much parallel.

      I agree with you about the placement of "Domestic Abuse."

      Thanks for your comments!

    Hi Larry,

    I don't see anywhere to comfortably house writings about bisexuality in your GLBT section.

    And there isn't really anywhere to discuss any form of ethical non-monogamy. Swinging is just one of several relationship models based on ethical non-monogamy. I'd like to see that as a category, with the following subcategories:

    * Swinging
    * Open Relationships
    * Polygamy and Polyandry (yes, yes you pedants, it should be polyGYNY and polyandry, but the majority of people refer to polygyny as polygamy and we want them to understand our categories, right?)
    * Polyamory
    * Gay Married Men
    * The Ethics Of Non-Monogamy
    * Criticisms of Ethical Non-Monogamy
    * History and Philosophy of Ethical Non-Monogamy
    * Ethical Non-Monogamy in Popular Culture
    * How-To Tips And Advice For Ethical Non-Monogamy
    * Legal Issues
    * Celebrities & Icons
    * Coming Out
    * Contemporary Issues
    * Dating Tips
    * Exploration & Curiosity
    * Female Issues
    * First Time Experiences
    * Poly Children
    * Poly Marriage
    * Poly Parents
    * Male Issues
    * Media & Social Issues
    * Pride
    * Role Models
    * Tolerance & Discrimination

      Hi Jenny,

      Great list!  Lots for me to think about!  smile

      I am planning to do a revision of this category on Monday.  I will try to address each of the items in your list in the revision.

      Cheers,

    Seeing the Ethics of Non-Monogamy gave me a great idea for my hub, which is titled similarly.  Having experience and websites to back me up, I was able to write this one easily.

    I know this is an old thread, but I appreciate the thoroughness of categories on hubpages! So, this is an awesome breakdown, Larry.  As a newbie to hubpages, I thank you! big_smile
