Are the days gone when Mum or Dad sits you down to explain the birds and bees? Probably not. However, when it comes to explaining the perhaps more technical aspects of relationships - that is, the flirting, dating, dumping and kissing - this Web site is not a bad reference tool at all.
An American site, Adolescent Adult-hood covers the gamut of relationship questions - for example, what is the best way to get someone's phone number? (If you ask them for their e-mail address, "you imply that you are hip because you are connected to the Net", the site says.) There's also advice on the best pick-up lines and how you can tell if someone really likes you (that's like-likes you). For those past the flirting and dating stages there's the Dumpomatic, a form tool that generates customised dumping speeches based on your choice of phrases.
The site is set out in an orderly fashion with male and female perspectives on each topic. Forums offer users the ability to pose their questions and have netizens offer advice.
