We’ve all been attracted to “that guy” once or twice before… maybe more than twice.
You swore you wouldn’t do it again.
But, perhaps, you fell into the trap once again and you’re now fed up with your own wavering… it’s time for solid advice on how to shift to finding Mr. Right more often.
Don’t worry we’ve all been there before, and I’m here for you!
While many believe that finding love is all about luck or chance, the truth is far more complex.
Are you dating someone new?
Have you been dating for a while, but the two of you aren’t exclusive (yet)?
Or, are you now dating exclusively and looking for the edge?
Relationships get tricky during the holidays, so we prepared this Holiday Guide to help you navigate the whitewater rapids of love and arrive at your destination with yourself inside the canoe, paddle intact and hair dry!
Keeping your spirits bright during the holiday season when you’re single isn’t always easy. Whether you’re going through a recent breakup or have been single “forever”, not having a partner this time of year brings up feelings of loneliness and (possibly) even bitterness.
It doesn’t help either when loved ones ask you questions like, “when are you going to settle down?” or, “why are you still single?” 😡. These questions might trigger you to want the Holiday season to be over yesterday, but take heart… don’t let their expectations make you feel down.
I dare you to be totally honest with yourself about this question…
Is sex ever okay on the 1st date?
Opinions abound on this topic. On one hand, there’s the belief that he should “work for it” (or that we should “hold out”) because it’s important to ensure he’s serious about us and that the relationship is going somewhere.
While out with a group of girlfriends the other day, the topic of men and conversations came up. Apparently, they don’t mesh well. At least, not according to my single friends.
One of my girlfriends, in particular, said that the men she talks to have a hard time holding conversations. That got the other ladies going and the consensus ended up being that men had a hard time coming up with anything meaningful to say.
But, this complaint actually goes both ways.
Dating, like most things, has its own rhythm, or natural speed of progression.
When you’ve got two people coming together with different outlooks on life, different agendas, different personalities, and pretty much different everything, you can’t rush how fast things will take off. And the worst thing you can do is force it. If you’ve been seeing someone, but aren’t sure when the best time to take things to the next level is, I’ve got some good indicators to follow.
Date night shouldn’t be the only time when you and your partner bond, this should be happening on a constant basis to keep your relationship healthy and vibrant.
One of the best ways you both can dedicate time to your relationship is by making dinner together at least once a week.
Have you ever went out on a date, had no intentions of seeing the person again once it was over…but they didn’t get the memo? Instead, they think there’s something more, and you don’t know how to tell them that it’s not. I know…awkward.
That’s a sticky situation to be in because…
- You don’t want to come off as a total A** to the person.
- You don’t want to be pestered either.
So, what do you do? How can you go out on a date with someone without leading them on?
Here are some tips on how NOT to send the wrong signals, so you don’t risk creating a situation that you’ll later regret:
