It’s Valentines day and the choices we’ve made either mean we’re with someone, we’re alone, or, now that we’re without masks and in Las Vegas, we’re people watching downtown or on the Strip.

Valentines Day for couples, and for singles, can be a time of reflection: how did I get so lucky as to end up with this person? Or how did I or we screw up so badly that it’s another year of Tombstone pizza, mountain dew and Netflix? 

For one UNLV class, every day is all about relationships. More specifically, how to communicate with romantic partners. Some of the topics covered: attraction, sex, cheating, forgiveness, and navigating long-distance relationships.
