Being printed? What are you like in a relationship?

What are you like in a relationship? Always wanted to know how you’d fare in a relationship? This survey could lend some insight.

Everyone knows about IQ and EQ, but have you ever heard of RQ (relationship quotient)?

For everyone who has ever wondered what kind of partner they are in a relationship, and what their attachment style is, taking the survey at A World for Two could lend some insight, and help you improve your future relationships.

What are you like in a relationship?

Your RQ tells you a lot about yourself – how you think, feel and behave in a romantic relationship; the role and personality you are likely to represent; and how you are likely to interact with your partner. Better self-awareness will allow you to better communicate with your partner, and discovering your RQ is the first step to knowing yourself better.

A World for Two also offers features like Friend Date, where you can receive special promotions by signing you and your crush up for a date at one of the partner cafés.

How many people have you indirectly had sex with? A new online calculator offers clues as to how STDs can spread indirectly from partner to partner

How many people have you indirectly had sex with?A new online calculator tabulates how many people you have indirectly had sex with based on the number of your actual sexual encounters.

Lloydspharmacy in the UK createdthe Sex Degrees of Separation Calculator to highlight the dangers of unprotected sex.

A 30-year-old woman, for example, who has had seven male sexual partners roughly the same age has come into sexual contact with 3,828,759 people. To calculate your number, input your age, gender, and number of sexual partners, as well as the age and gender of each sexual partner.

According to the Daily Mail, "the calculator helps to explain why sexually transmitted infection rates are on the rise at a time when the average man claims to have had nine sexual partners while the average woman admits to having had 6.3 lovers."

The Health Protection Agency's latest figures show that rates of sexually transmitted diseases are highest in young adults aged 15-24 years old, accounting for 57 percent of all new gonorrhea diagnoses and 56 percent of all new genital warts diagnoses, according to the report.

Being printed? George Clooney disappointed with grey hair

George Clooney disappointed by grey hair The handsome actor reveals his surprise at how grey his hair has turned out

George Clooney disappointed by grey hairGeorge Clooney is “surprised” by how grey his beard is.

The handsome actor has grown some impressive facial hair for his role in The Monuments Men, which he is also directing and co-wrote.

However, the 51-year-old is disappointed about the colour his hair is turning.

"I was a little surprised how grey it was when it came out," he laughed to E! Online.

"It came out and it's grey! You're like, 'What the hell happened? I was young once but now I'm old.'"

The star has been dating 33-year-old Stacy Keibler since July 2011.

Despite their age difference, the pretty blonde is enamoured with George’s greying facial hair.

"I love it," she gushed.

The Hollywood star looked dapper at the Academy Awards, clad in a black Giorgio Armani tuxedo.

As he’s got older, George has become happy with recycling his favourite suit throughout the awards season.

"It's easy! Sometimes you wear holes in them so you have to get a new one but it's basically the same thing," he explained to Us Weekly.

"I am 51 years old. You don't want to get all crazy with your tuxes. Just get something nice and standard."

The gorgeous A-lister is pretty low maintenance in general, taking only a few minutes to get ready for a big event.

Shortly before the Oscars, George played some basketball and Stacy was amazed at his quick transformation after the game.

"I mean, he literally walked by me sweaty and in five minutes walked by the other way in a tux and looked dapper!" she marvelled.

"He always looks good and he is always pretty consistent."

Being printed? Paul Wesley is jealous of UK men

Paul Wesley is jealous of UK men The 'Vampire Diaries' star admits to being jealous of British men and how put together they look

Paul Wesley is jealous of UK menPaul Wesley is "jealous" of the way men in London dress.

The Vampire Diaries actor says he admires the way males put an outfit together in the UK's capital city.

The 30-year-old hunk, who stars as Stefan Salvatore in the supernatural TV drama, named British men's ability to work colour into their ensembles as the thing he is most envious of.

"I always get jealous when I'm in London because the men are so well put together," Paul told the British edition of Glamour magazine. "They wear suits and ties that have splashes of colour with shoes and ties that have splashes of colour here and there."

Paul admits he has a limited relationship with fashion. While he can appreciate a sharp suit on someone, he would not call himself a style icon.

"I think the way a person dresses is an expression of their personality, and I appreciate a well-tailored suit and the work that goes into it," he continued. "But when it comes to fashion, on a scale of one to ten, I'm a two. It's funny that I'm the guy in this article because I'm so not that guy. I'm the guy that needs this article! I don't have a stylist but I ask my wife [actress Torrey DeVitto] for her opinion when picking clothes. I don't help her when it comes to dressing. I mean, I can tell her when something looks good, but when she asks which of two things I prefer, I just arbitrarily pick something. I have no idea."
