There are certain things about men, women, and dating that we believe to be fact. While men think about sex on the regular, women endlessly talk about their feelings. While many men fear commitment, women want to walk down the aisle ASAP. These are stereotypes, of course, encouraged by "Cosmo" and "Sex and the City," but what if we were to tell you that most of what you thought to be true is myth? According to recent studies by Match.com and eHarmony, the truth about relationships is far from what you'd expect.

Ahh, the modern age. Science and technology have made life so convenient and digital. You can use the Internet to make an appointment at the DMV and control your house's thermostat with your phones. But although many things have gotten easier, dating has only gotten more complicated. For example, on the Style Network's reality show "Sperm Donors," a man confessed to his fiancé over drinks that he'd fathered 70 children. His bride-to-be managed to keep her martini from coming out of her nose and she even blamed herself for "not asking the right questions."; Apparently it's no longer enough just to ask if a potential mate wants children; now a girl's gotta ask, "How many biological offspring have your college sperm donations produced?" Before you get engaged—or even serious with a new steady—the questions that need to be asked and answered have definitely changed. Here are a few we'd recommend sorting out before it's too late.
