Proposal: Relationships and Dating

There is an existing demo question on Friendship.

Two of my best friends hate each other. Assuming that won't change, what's the best way to avoid being drawn into their fighting?

From chaosys's comment this question arrived on my mind, Are question like this are going to be allowed?

In terms of whether the subject itself is part of the scope of the site, that's what the Area 51 voting is there to decide — http://area51.stackexchange.com/faq

But from a Stack Exchange philosophical standpoint, that specific question can only be discussed, not answered, per se. These type of discussion questions are better asked in a discussion forum or chat room. Such questions would likely be closed as "not constructive" because they just are not well-suited to this type of Q&A site.

    This could probably be answered with a link to and brief summary of an appropriate article on Captain Awkward, actually. Dec 27, 2013 at 18:37

Hmmmm... Well, I suppose that it would go under the Relationships part of the site, so I think it should technically be allowed.
