Hi, I’m Maya Ray. I’m a single mother, writer, and inveterate traveller. My home-made vegan popcorn is second to none. My life skills are a work in progress.
I’m a cultural anthropologist by training. I’ve been researching and writing about relationships for eight years and counting. When I discovered online dating, a whole new world opened up to me, and I decided to explore it through this blog.
I believe the quality of our relationships is the number one factor affecting our satisfaction in life. Humans are social animals. We live and die by our relationships. Making our relationships better can only happen by improving ourselves. But improving ourselves also has to happen by working on our relationships.
This blog explores the art and science of how we relate to others. I give you real talk about real relationships: dating, sex, skills, family, and managing your relationships online and off. Welcome. Now go get relating!
