Most writers want one thing: an audience that reads and appreciates their work. The bigger the audience, the more fulfilling writing is. Are you a writer whose works explore relationships and lifestyle? Here are ten relationship blogs and magazines that accept guest posts, their requirements, and the kind of style that works best:
Psychology Today is a magazine that is published both online (on a web blog) and in print. They are a renowned publisher of articles that explore human psychology from diverse points of view.
Whilst psychology today’s online blog has a team of writers who are skilled and knowledgeable about psychology, they are willing to read and possibly publish articles from anyone who shows an interest in being published by them.
You just have to be a skilled writer who is knowledgeable in the field of science or mental health and psychology.
If you do want to be published by them, all you have to do is send a proposal describing why you want to be a part of their team. You should also include your qualifications. Including your previous works will be fine, too, so that you stand a better chance at impressing the editors.
Include your strengths. What can you write best?

Marriage.com is a blog open to receiving relationship guest post submissions from anyone who is interested in being published by them, wherever you are in the world.
They take their audience into consideration before accepting any articles submitted. The audience of almost 1 million monthly visitors loves to read relatable, error-free works.
So, you just have to write great, readable stuff that is not plagiarized. And if you’re an expert in psychology or counseling, you can go further to offer expert advice.
For your work to stand a better chance whilst it’s being considered, you have to make sure it’s original. That it states a purpose. It will be best if you also try to make your paragraphs less than 50 words.
Your headline has to be catchy and special; try not to lift cliche titles from the internet. Be yourself and write like you. They only accept works submitted in American English.

The Urban Dater is amongst the top online blogs that accept relationship guest post submissions from guest writers. They want first-person stories that have not been published before, as long as it is related to sex and relationships and is well written.
They want stories that are relatable in the present age, not ones from long ago–stories about dragons and unicorns are not a great fit.
Don’t write about a prince charming, except your hair is up to thirty feet long, and you live in a castle with a lady who wouldn’t let you leave.
The stories you submit to The Urban Dater need to have an arc. Arcs are just how the story progresses. The word count has to be somewhere between 700 – 900 words.
They will not accept stories that are misogynistic or bigoted. The stories don’t have to pose a threat in any way to other human beings. Look up their website for more information.
And try to crosscheck your work before submitting it. Even though the editors will edit your work, it has to be good before they even consider accepting it.
They want you to format it properly, too. Don’t use too many unnecessary spaces. There should not be double spaces after full stops or commas.
You should set up a gravatar account and link it to the email from which you send The Urban Dater your story.
