All the time I've got questions about relationships. Stack-exchange is where I turn to get ideas for many other questions, why not in the realm of love and friendship and sex? Example question:

I broke up with a person I'd gone on a dozen dates with, but told them we could still be friends. Now they want to hang out every other day. How can I tell them I want to see them less often without a specific reason?

    Area 51 is the place for new stack exchange sites, but this sounds a little 'yahoo answers' for my liking – Richard Tingle Jul 16 '13 at 20:06
  • Will the questions and answers this site would generate be useful to future users or just a support group. Your example question suggests the later – Richard Tingle Jul 16 '13 at 20:09

    Those types of questions tend to be very localized; what works for one person may not apply to anyone else. Can you think of any questions in the "relationship" topic that would have definitive, broadly applicable answers? – George Cummins Jul 16 '13 at 20:09

    This question appears to be off-topic because it is a site proposal, which belongs on Area 51. See the Relationships & Dating proposal. – Bill the Lizard Jul 16 '13 at 20:09

    Area 51 has a proposal called [Relationships and Dating][1] which is supposed to become the Q&A site for people seeking answers to questions about dating, long term relationships, love, marriage or other commitments, and everything else typically considered a "relationship" Should you be interested in this proposal, you can support it.

    @RichardTingle I find it slightly amusing that you were attracted to this question. – user1228 Jul 16 '13 at 20:17
  • It's a pity this is the first result when I searched for mathematical relations on math stack exchange :) – Colm Bhandal May 10 '20 at 15:49

Your sample question would not fit the stack exchange model under any topic. Answers would be based entirely on opinion.

  • I personally unsupport relationships myself. It's a sore point. It doesn't fit the main point of SE model (together with self-help answers). I must admit it's a woe of many forums, that makes and makes precedence. So this question must be deleted ASAP. Also, by downvoting that-like question one just supports such topics. +don't touch! – Xsi Jul 17 '13 at 8:18

    You're right, it was a dumb idea :( interpersonal.stackexchange.com – Yozarian22 Jul 31 '18 at 18:11
