Single and Waiting

Here are a few things to consider while waiting for your future hubby to arrive:

  1. Stop blaming him for not being able to fulfill your need to get married just because you feel you are ready! Everything happens for a reason and maybe the reason that you are waiting is because you are not as ready as you think.
  2. Dig deep. Take a look at yourself and ask if there is anything that you can work on to make yourself the very best you there is to offer. Are there any childhood troubles that haunt you or hold you back? Are there secrets that you have never discussed that have negatively shaped you into who you are today? Did you pick up a couple of undesirable traits from your parents that you wish you hadn’t? What about past relationships that you still hold resentment or shame about? Now is the time to reflect and face any demons or excess baggage that you carry. Try counseling or therapy and prayer to help you talk about it. This will not be easy, but

Tips Successful Date

Some of the tips that you should follow to make the date a success are as follows:

  • Keep On the Appearance

I am sure you have heard that the first impression is the last impression. So, to make that a lasting one you need to care about certain things. Dressing better is the first thing that can help you to impress. Every lady likes their man to be dressed well. Clean and tidy look is just the perfect way to impress. Get some good clothing from a store you like. If you really want to impress then spending a little of the bucks on proper dressing shouldn’t matter.

  • Choose a Good Location

When you are dating her then you should maintain to take her to restaurants and bars that impress her. A good location, hygienic surrounding, and a good ambiance are what you should be looking for. If the restaurant serves one of her favorites then you are almost done.

  • Do Not Complain

Negative talks can stop the routes of all conversation. Keep the way

Pick Up Women at The Office

First and foremost, test the waters: Unless the woman you’re after is undeniably attracted to you as well, chances are that your advances will not be welcome. So start off by always saying “hi” to her and smile at her every time you cross paths with her. Doing this frequently will make her aware of you. After you’ve done this a few times, you can progress to trying to extend your interaction with her beyond just saying “hi.” Do not try to pick her up or ask her out at this point. Just keep the conversations on work related stuff or other neutral topics. The purpose of this is to gauge how receptive she is simply talking to you and also to get her comfortable around you and used to talking to you.

Secondly, assuming you now know she has a receptive attitude when you talk to her, it’s time to start joking around with her. By this I mean it’s OK to tease her a little and be somewhat playful here and there. In other words, try to bring out both her sense of humor and yours. I say this because you don’t want to come

Holiday Destinations for Single Men

The terrain surrounding this ancient city is one of the most diverse in Colombia and a great vacation for singles.

Ways to Impress Women

Following are the top five ways to impress the real women:

  1. Just be yourself – Instead of imitating someone, it is better to be just the way you are. You don’t need to do a lot of things to impress us; all you need to do is be who you are. We like men who know how to express their emotions and put their innermost feelings into words. Unless you do that, you can never have the right kind of a woman walking by your side.
  2. Don’t be too hard on yourself – The worst thing that most of the men do is strive hard to impress women. Don’t do that – all you’ve got to do is keep it simple and learn how to respect us and you would gain our attention. Defend us, if you are given the opportunity and if your stand makes a different in our lives, and be with us, when we need you.
  3. Don’t try to impress us – I know a lot of men do this – they try to impress the ladies with their style, fashion and a lot of such materialistic things. Instead of playing the impression game, which does not last for long, try to be casual

Find Your Soulmate

  • Side Effects of Online Dating 

With online dating being on the rise, it has taken a lot of the mystery and excitement out of dating because it is too easy. We then make lists based on judgments on what we think we want to screen people. Much of what we could be looking for could also be on the defense to avoid the pain from the side effects of the online dating system. Because there are so many choices, we dismiss each other like numbers, which creates a great disconnect. Online dating can be useful for some who genuinely have a hard time meeting people but within moderation. Its overuse can become a distraction to finding one’s soulmate. So let’s refresh our memories on how to use our divine guidance to understand what our hearts really want, not what the ego wants.

  • The Purpose of a Relationship

The purpose of a relationship and that of a soulmate relationship is to teach us how to love more fully. To get there, we have lessons to learn, habits and beliefs that we need to let go of. Love is something that should automatically flow through us when

Things Singles Can Relate to

For the single fellas, here is something to laugh about. The things that are too real for you.

Default hotel and restaurant offers are for couples

Why will you pay for an extra when you’re the only one having dinner or occupying the room or having dinner. Right here, you will realize that it’s just the default offer and that you can ask them to prepare something good for only one person. Yes, the realization comes in that people are expected to be with someone else. No pressure!

Being single is happy and sad

Happiness is a choice and you always choose to be it. But, there are days that you feel awful for not having someone to cuddle with in the heavy rain. You are fine being alone, because who needs someone else when you can do everything. But, there are moments when you feel like you have been left out and deprived of the happiness of loving and being loved. It’s sad, but you’re happy with the perks of just looking after yourself.

Single quotes everywhere

Opening Twitter and Instagram feels like an overflow of quotes describing your single life.

Finding Love

Step 1: Get a pen and paper, whiteboard, or notebook on your device, and write down the 10 qualities that are most important to you in a partner. And remember, this is to help you move forward, so no cheating! For example, “attractive, tall, green eyes, black hair, athletic” does not count as one quality but 5. And “kind, generous, loyal” is 3 qualities, not 1. Take your time writing down the 10 qualities. These are the 10 qualities that you want more than any others, so again, no cheating. Keep it to 10.

Step 2: Now, scan this list of 10 qualities that you have written down. Think about how you feel about these qualities. Then be very strong and let go of 5 of them. Yes, I know this can be hard, but do it anyway. There is a reason for that. This leaves you with 5 qualities that are the most important of all to you in a partner.

Step 3: OK, now for the really interesting part. Cut the list down to 3 qualities and no more. Take your time, you can experiment with it, think how you feel, and look at

Assess a Long Distance Relationship

The Challenges

  • If you are an insecure, anxious, needy or jealous person, then a long distance relationship is likely not for you. Until you learn to love yourself enough to not worry about what your partner is doing, and to take loving care of your own feelings, it will likely be very stressful for you.
  • If you are an extroverted person who regenerates with your partner and with others, not seeing your partner on a daily basis might be very hard for you, especially if you are a stay-at-home parent or you work at a job where you don’t have much interaction with others.
  • If you are a working mother or father, or you have a number of young children, it may be quite challenging for you to not have the help of your partner.
  • If consistent, daily in-person connection and affection is important to you, then a long distance lifestyle would not work well for you.

The Positives

  • If you are a more introverted person who needs a lot of time alone to regenerate, it might work well for you to not be with a partner on a daily basis.
  • If you or your partner are both very

Creating a Positive Long Distance Relationship

Relationships can be hard, but long-distance relationships bring a new meaning to the idea of what is hard in the relationship. The emotional, psychological, spiritual and physical needs of the relationship must be fulfilled in alternative ways. Long-distance relationships can be successful when they are cultivated on the art of communication and trust between the partners. Prioritizing your goals with your partner and speaking with them and making it known to others how you feel about them can help intensify your relationship.

Keep your Skype or phone call dates. Cancelling on your partner might imply to them, they are an afterthought or just an alternative if nothing better is going on. Keep your scheduled Skype/phone calls as you would a date. Make sure you inform your friends or family of your plans to spend the evening talking to your partner and that you are unavailable at that time. If you need to cancel for an emergency, let your partner know so they don’t feel stood up.

Communicate about anything and everything. Be honest about how you are feeling, share what you are passionate about and what activities you are currently involved in. Talk to your partner

Pros And Cons Of Long Distance Relationships

As an optimistic, I will start with the pros or long distance relationships:

  • You miss your partner – couples that live together often have one problem. They do not have time to miss each other due to the fact that they barely get alone time. They constantly see each other and sometimes this can drive you nuts. In a long distance relationship you get to miss your partner, his smell, smile, touch and many things.
  • You get alone time – despite contrary beliefs, me time is very important. In a relationship and outside of it as well. You get time to relax, do the things you love, go out with friends, stay with your family, study or simply watch a movie or a TV show that you love.
  • It’s a constant honeymoon – people who are in a long distance relationship know what I am talking about. While spending time with yourself is important, when you get the chance of meeting your partner is a constant honeymoon. You drink wine together and have long romantic evenings, you go out more for walks in the park. And not to mention that sex is better.

But there are also cons when you are having a

Find a Penfriend

Finding a snail mail pen friend used to be quite straight forward. All one had to do was to check out the personal columns of news papers and magazines and write to any pen pal clubs who had their adverts there but the internet changed all that. People deserted snail mail pen friend clubs in favour of internet dating sites however there are people who are not computer savvy or prefer to correspond with others the old-fashioned way, the advantages of this are the dangers of internet dating compared with correspondence by letter. The most obvious answer to that is to do a Google search of pen friend clubs. I know that may sound contradictory to my earlier statements but some snail mail pen friend clubs have gone online but have still retained a snail mail option. Some safe guards need to be put in place when making any initial contact online and that includes not using an email address in any ads you place or set up a separate email address for the sole purpose of finding a pen pal.

Writing to the editors of overseas newspapers is another way to find some pen friends. Again

Tips To Date Someone With Herpes

  • Get a test done

If your partner admits that he or she has herpes, you should go ahead and get tested. According to doctors, more than 70% people have no idea if they are infected with this disease. You don’t need to worry if both of you are found positive. You just need to take steps to treat the condition, and it’s OK if you keep on dating.

  • Use Meds

You should be as careful as possible. You may know that herpes is contagious and it’s a must that you take precautions. If you want to prevent the transmission of disease, we suggest that you go on meds like Acyclovir and Valtrex. This will reduce the chance of the spread. Apart from this, you need to make sure that your partner takes the required meds before you get intimate.

  • Get to Know More about HSV

You may want to know as much as you can about HSV. Jumping to conclusions is not a good idea. Reading up on the disease will help you stay on the safe side. At the same time, you will be able to have a lot of fun with

Make a Good Impression on the First Date

Prepare yourself. Before the date you should do something that relaxes you: sports, reading, yoga singing your favorite song – whatever makes you happy and happy. Wash yourself, use a deodorant, brush your teeth, comb your hair and do not forget to put fresh clothes on you!

Choose a place that will be special for your date. If you do not know what he / she likes, then ask. You want him / her to be happy to go to a place that is special to him / her.

If it is a date in a festive setting, then have a small welcome gift for him / her. A small box of chocolates or a single rose for example. Of course it would be better if you knew what flowers or sweets your date preferred. But never try a single rose at a casual first date – it might be too exaggerated, as such things express passionate love. Instead, you can try it with a homemade little thing, a small stuffed animal or something else that makes you look extraordinary. Never give anything big at a first date. The best gift you can give is your company.

Tips to Be a Perfect Boyfriend

No woman can feel valued if her opinions and demands are not heeded. If it is your girlfriend, her opinions should have a lot of weight for you. Although you do not agree at all with regard to the way of thinking, you have to allow her to at least expose your points of view. Otherwise, she will feel underappreciated, she will think you do not take her seriously, and she will probably begin to feel uncomfortable with you. No one likes to be with a person who does not have you in the slightest regard or who does not care to know what makes you happy.

If there are issues that you are passionate about, but she is bored by it then do not make them the center of the conversation. Do not talk about yourself and what you like all the time. Try to have ambitious goals in life, to improve as a person, or to have minimum aspirations. It’s hard to stay in love with a man who just wants to get the weekend to go beers with the cronies. It is difficult, and will require an effort
