Fun Date Ideas For Couples

(category: Dating, Word count: 555)

Many people think of dates as something for young, new couples who are in love. This is true. However, when people say that, they think fun dating trips and outings are exclusive to this group of people. This is not the case. Couples who have been together just a short time as well as couples who have been together for several years both deserve to treat their relationships to fun date ideas to keep their relationships enjoyable. Keeping a relationship new with periodic dates for just the two of you is a great way to stay close as a couple. The ways to decide on what kind of date you are going to take your loved one on include common interests, experiences you have had, and sharing ideas.

One of the first things to consider when deciding on where to take your significant other on a date is the interests that you have in common with each other. Many times, couples have several things in common, but have things that they do not share as well. When you are considering a place to take a date, always consider whether or not your date will appreciate your idea. If you are really into football, and your date is not, perhaps it is not the smartest thing to do to take your date to a football game. If you both like go-cart driving, this is a terrific date idea for the two of you.

Another thing to consider when trying to decide the location of a great date is to remember the experiences that you and your loved one have already had. If there is something that you have already done, and you have an opportunity to do something new and different, before you take the habitual date that you have already had, consider a new option instead of the same old thing. Keeping your mind open to sharing new experiences with your loved one is a good way to get closer to each other.

One other thing to think about when trying to decide on a date location is the sharing of ideas. When you are dating and trying to become closer by having common experiences with your loved one, it is very important that both parties have the opportunity for inputting ideas on where to go. If one party does all of the deciding, the other party could become resentful and begin to dislike not being able to ever choose date locations. A recommendation might be to do every-other dates. Every-other dates are dates where your loved one chooses, then you choose, and so on and so forth. By sharing ideas and sacrificing your likes and dislikes sometimes, you can have a happier relationship by allowing the other person to have a say.

Wherever you decide to take a date with your loved one, be sure to consider the three aspects that have been included in this article. Considering these three things will help you to have a better time at whatever type of date you decide to go on. Remember to take into consideration common interests between you and your loved one, previous dates and experiences that you have been on with your loved one, and the sharing of ideas when deciding where to go for a great date.

Free Online Dating Services When Free Things Matter

(category: Dating, Word count: 416)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Today, there are many free online dating services as there are online dating services that require memberships. However, the cutting edge of these free online dating services is the fact that they are, indeed, free. They do not require anybody to pay certain membership fees just to get hold of their services.

Nevertheless, free online dating services almost have the same features like that of the major online dating services. So, people can get the same benefit without having to pay for anything.

However, one of the reasons why these free online dating services are not as popular as those that require membership fees is that almost 45% of the single adults who use these dating services are actually looking for serious relationships.

Hence, the fact that free memberships, most often than not, entice bogus people to sign-up with more quantitative reasons instead of qualitative is already enough to make it less favorable to many.

Nevertheless, whether or not free dating services are okay, there are still guidelines that people must remember when looking for online dating sites. Here's how:

1. Privacy policy

Even if it is a free online dating site, it has to have its own privacy policy. This means that online dating sites should never sell or use for other purposes their member's e-mail address.

2. Background checking

It always pays off to do background checking before committing to a certain online dating site. It's best to find out first if the site has larger membership database than others. More members would mean choices.

3. Extra features

Not all free online dating services are created equal. So, even if they are free, there are still online dating sites that can provide greater features compared to other major dating services.

4. Log-in safety measures

Even if the site seems okay, it's best for everybody to remember never to use their real name when creating a user name or use an e-mail address with their real name on it. It is always best to maintain certain level of secrecy for security purposes.

5. Free trial offers

Free online dating services usually offer free trials. It wouldn't hurt to try just as long as a person observes safety online dating guidelines. After all, there's nothing to lose because they are free.

So, whether or not free online dating services are favorable, one thing should always be kept in mind: One's safety should always be on top priority.

Christian Online Dating Services

(category: Dating, Word count: 352)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Christian online dating has become evermore popular in recent years. It's increase in popularity is shown by the fact that Christian online dating services can command up to half a million members. That's a dedicated following of members that are actively seeking other like minded singles for either friendship or romance.

Depending on what community a Christian single lives in, it can be difficult to interact with other Christians. They might have to travel to far, or not know the best places to go. Christian dating services give Christians an instant chance to meet other singles and share their religious beliefs.

These services will give a Christian single a chance to grow spiritually and socially. Many of the services have Bible study chat rooms where young Christians can be taught by the more worldly Christians. These study periods may not be available for some Christians offline so they will be an invaluable source of knowledge and aid a Christian in growing internally.

Choosing the right Christian dating service is an important factor for their enjoyment. This will also give them a better chance of building a meaningful relationship. Finding out how many Christians there are living within a designated distance is going to be the first test. With Christian dating services all supplying a free trial period in some form, at least finding this out will cost nothing.

Once the Christian online dating service has been chosen the adventure begins. With the free service still being used usually a single can only respond to another singles messages. You may get the chance to send some sort of teaser to show you are interested, but generally to initiate full contact a single must pay for a membership. A months online dating never costs more than a night out, so not that many singles should be put off by the price.

Thousands of Christian singles worldwide are enjoying the advantages that Christian online dating gives them. Many of them have married their perfect partners that they never would have met offline, which makes it all the more a worthwhile experience.

Online Dating At The End Of The Rainbow

(category: Dating, Word count: 590)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

The journey to healthy online dating, intimate, social and personal relationships start at the beginning of the rainbow. Experiencing the joy of childbirth is analogous to viewing a beautiful rainbow. Many women love being pregnant! They feel sexy and sensual, busty and beautiful. Furthermore, every time they gaze upon their expanding bellies they must realize part two of this phenomenal and splendid act is about to commence.

Many loving and responsible parents verbalize the same statement, in anticipation of the birth of their newborn. "I want to give my son or daughter those things I never had", is a universal statement. The statement made by parent's echoes around the world. During the elation of the newborn, we fail to realize our traditional ways may have a negative impact on our newborn's disposition, as she/he develops.

Manipulated by tradition, we believe there is no other means to an end other than the way of those who went before us. Fraud, manipulation, and deception have led us to believe that it is appropriate behavior to expose our children to fairy tales. We also accepted the belief that fairy tales are morality tales that will strengthen the moral disposition of our children. This statement is far from the truth, as children around the world who are exposed to fairy tales grow-up trying to unravel the complexities in their lives caused by being trapped in the fairy tale syndrome.

Our Fantasies Begin to Dominate Our Minds;

Our Desires Dominate Reason;

We begin to See Life;

As We Desire Life to Be.

Fairy tales and fictional characters harbor illusions in our minds, constantly generating a false sense of reality. We begin to believe what we imagine to be real, loosing all perspective of reality. If we fail to focus on the moment (reality), we may experience severe agony in the future. We are always concentrating on imaginary future events as the present moment and its life giving lessons pass us by. We find our dating relationships crumbling to pieces and we do not know why. We wake-up in a state of dizziness; our dating relationships resemble the workings of a revolving door, everyone is jumping on and off and it seems like life is spinning out of control.

Our fantasies begin to dominate our minds; our desires dominate reason; we begin to see life, as we desire life to be. We begin to fantasize about the type of intimate relationships we are going to have even taking it to the extent of perceiving how we are going to act within the relationships. We create images in our minds, fantasizing about our knight in shining armor, or a Britney Spears look alike, or just the girl next door. We begin to fantasize about all sorts of things. It is similar to parachute jumping without a parachute. It is an enormous mistake because every action has a reaction. Not knowing what the next moment will bring, places us in an unprotected state.

When our fantasies fail to turn into reality, intoxicants seems to be an alternative. Our relationships with others turn sour and we turn on our best friends (even our imaginary ones). Fear increases, as well as our imaginary fears about future events that will never happen. Life for many becomes fragmented and unpleasant. We begin to experience a feeling of hopelessness, worthlessness, and pessimism. The aforementioned is the reaction to focusing on our desires (fantasies) instead of reality.

How To Ask Out A Shy Woman

(category: Dating, Word count: 767)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Dating could be one of the most celebrated events in an individual's life. It is that point in time where a man and a woman get to be acquainted with each other and discover each other's weaknesses and strengths.

In fact, some studies revealed that dating, which eventually leads into a relationship, makes people feel better and in good health than those who preferred to be single. That is why almost 90% of the adult population in the U.S. is already married, with the remaining 10% planning to marry someday.

However, even if most of the people would rather engage into dating and wish to marry someday, this does not necessarily mean that dating could be very easy. The truth is dating could be very tricky especially for those who do not know the right strategy in asking women out.

Consequently, most men contend that they are having a hard time asking shy women out. This is because shy women are afraid of the consequences that might happen during their date. The problem with most shy people is that they have higher expectations on finding the right person; hence, they fear that the person is not yet the one and that the date might just turn into a disaster.

Moreover, socialization for every shy woman could be a disaster for her. Mere shaking of hands or simply facing their date is already difficult for them.

So for those who want to ask shy women out, it is important to remember about the common characteristics that these kinds of personality exhibit. Here is a list of some tips that you should remember:

1. Try to know the reasons for her shyness

If you personally know the person, it would be better to do some research from her friends or other acquaintance the possible reason for her shyness. In this way, you will be able to plan the appropriate actions in order to deal with her properly.

There are some women who are just shy because they do not know the other person too well, but once they get long with each other, her shyness eventually fades.

2. Single steps journey are much preferred

The problem with most shy women is that it is difficult to let them open up and loosen a bit. This is sometimes associated with the fact that shy women are afraid of meeting people whom they do not know very well.

Hence, one good way to solve this problem is to try to get close to the person first. However, it does not necessarily mean that once you are acquainted with her, it would be easier for her to open up instantly. The point here is that time will tell when the shy person will open up and reveal something about her life. So the best way is to continue making her feel comfortable and impress her by being reliable and somebody she can trust with.

3. Listen well

Most shy women are initiated to feel at ease when they know that the person they are talking with are listening to whatever they have to say attentively. Hence, it is important to listen to all of her sentiments, her inhibitions, her experiences and make her feel that whatever she has to say, you can understand.

The point here is that people love to talk about themselves, so when a shy woman has already started talking, the best way to get her attention is to listen to her first.

4. Get the conversation going by empathizing with her

It would be better if you can show your empathy by telling her with your own experiences, fear, and inhibitions. In this way, shy women will be able to relate to you, hence, they would be more at ease.

5. Try to be subtle all the time

If you think that you can never initiate her to open up, do not be pushy and pressure her to do something she does not feel like doing. It will only make the matters worse.

All of these are boiled down to the fact that dealing with shy women is never easy, but it is not that complicated at all. The only important thing to consider is to take the person's personality all the time. Try to consider her feelings and sentiments.

By the time that she knows you are someone she can talk with and be with without having to fear of anything, chances are, both of you are on your way to a wonderful and hopefully lasting relationship.

Flirting Mistakes 8 Things Not To Do

(category: Dating, Word count: 403)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Being a good flirt has as much to do with not doing the wrong things as it does with doing the right things. Flirting is difficult because there's such a fine line between being successful and crashing and burning. It's so easy to do everything right, but then ruin all of your progress by making one of the all too common mistakes below.

1) Don't be crude

If you make obvious and nasty sexual innuendoes, you aren't being a turn on, you're being a pervert...unless you're a girl (then it's ok).

2) Don't ignore body language

Over 65% of communication is non-verbal. If you aren't actively looking at the way their body is shifting or what the person's eyes are saying, you're going to miss a lot of obvious signs that say "I'm into you, keep talking."...or..."You're a freak, and I don't want you around a second longer."

3) Avoid being overtly slick

It's fine to act cool, but don't go overboard. You won't seem like yourself...and that's not attractive.

4) Don't be silly

Flirting should make your target feel sexy and wanted, not entertained. You want to be perceived in a sexual way...not as the funny guy or girl.

5) Don't be excessively cute

If you act too cute (unsexy), you'll be seen as an innocent and nice person. That's great if you want to be just a friend, but not for anything more.

6) Cut your losses if it's obvious your actions aren't appreciated

If your flirtations are clearly visible and you aren't being flirted with back, it's time to pack it up and move on.

7) Don't show fear

Insecurity is perceived as a terribly unattractive sign of weakness. If you want to get your target to take you seriously, you've got to hide your nerves. This means no...stammering, fidgeting, wandering eyes (off into the distance), wavering voice, etc.

8) Avoid being overly touchy feely...unless you're a girl

This is specifically aimed at the guys. It's not appropriate to grope or touch a woman unless you know she likes you. If you aren't sure that she's into you, it's ok to lightly touch her shoulder or graze her arm...but that's it! Do not put your arm around her waist or constantly touch her shoulder or body. This will freak her out and make her feel terribly uncomfortable around you.

First Date Weirdness That Awkward Silence

(category: Dating, Word count: 721)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

First dates for some can be intimidating and stressful. Often, one's mind and emotions are overcome with insecurities and fears.

Conversation normally is a big factor for a positive date outcome as well as a great influence on the failure of your date.

Carrying a conversation during a first date can become difficult and uneasy at times, since you hardly know the individual you are dating (specially on a blind date), making it hard to open up and think of a certain topic to talk about and with slight tension and nervousness, things can be really awkward.

On dates, usually a person is scared of rejection and failure; thus is nervous and conscious on what to say. It has to be the right things; sparking his/her interests as the wrong words may either injure your date's feelings or make the conversation boring. This is because usually one is very concerned about one's impression that he/she is able to convey to his/her date.

One's apprehensions can lead to damaging results, usually paralyzing one's thoughts and emotions, thus inhibiting one's capability to behave confidently and normally like one would do when he is in the company of family and friends.

As a result, one ends up in a very humiliating and embarrassing situation, which one describes in dating as "awkward silence".

Almost everyone is capable of carrying on an effortless, enjoyable and easy going conversation with individuals they are familiar with and therefore having the proper approach, so one can do it with the girl/guy on one's first date.

One solution here is to think ahead of time the things that you can open up or topics that can start a good conversation; ask a common friend of his/her interest, hobbies, sports, career, etc.

Another solution is to relax and be yourself; never pretend to be somebody that you are not. Keep in mind that it's no use when your date will like for putting up a front; it will be a great feeling to know that your date liked you for what you are.

Never brag, talking constantly of your awards and accomplishments as this would only set arrogant impression on you. Keep your conversation as simple as possible keeping away discussions about politics or religion.

Also, do not intrude or ask personal questions; whatever your date wants to relate to you, he/she will tell you on his/her own. Never too, talk about your experience about past relationships, as this will make your date feel uneasy. Making your date feel at ease with your conversations, for sure there will be a second time around for both of you.

Let your date talk and you have to listen well, as this will allow you to collect ideas of the things that interest your date and make these as topics for your conversation as well as be acquainted with your date much better. Furthermore, being a great listener is one positive feature that any ideal date can possess.

Take note that most often than not, people are tempted or even talk about their life story. Be careful, as this might only bore your date. Instead, loosen up and select an easy topic or general things such as movies, food, or anything that is of interest to your date. Or be funny and joke a little, you do not need to be all that formal.

Basically, when you are listening well to your date, you'll know what you both have in common, so talk about that, so you can develop a good bond.

Do not let the "awkward silences" worry you, at some point those silences will come, but know that as they embarrass you, they also embarrass your date. Awkward silences are never a basis for you to conclude that your date is not interested in you; he/she just might be in a similar situation as you.

Relax and be yourself. When "silence" do come, break it with a joke, a compliment or a question and remember to be honest; let your date know how nervous you are (when you are). Letting your date know how to feel on this first date will take away the tension on he/she is feeling and will make him/her comfortable and can handle the situation better.

First Date Tips Getting Ready

(category: Dating, Word count: 333)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Congratulations, you met someone you like (through friends, online dating services, on your own, or any other way...) and you are going on a date!

Here are some basic first date tips to help you to get ready to your date.

Apparel is of course the trickiest of them all, you need to look gorgeous, but as if it took no effort to achieve this look. Well, I have to break the bad news to you - no one can look terrific with no effort. Even those seemingly slobby rock starts invest hundreds of dollars in their designer's shabby jeans, and in their well-trimmed bristles.

On the other hand, you shouldn't go over the edge on your first date, or you'll send the message of over enthusiasm, which may scare your date away.

So what to do?

First of all make sure you are clean and that you smell good. Don't surround yourself with a scented cloud, but it's definitely a worthy cause to use that expensive perfume that collects dust in your closet.

When it comes to choosing an outfit, you have to follow one basic - feel comfortable.

You don't have to wear the most brilliant and expensive item in your wardrobe. The main idea is comfort, and when you feel comfortable you are relaxed and at your best.

Here's a tip to women: surprisingly, men usually don't care what we're wearing: you are most attractive when you feel attractive, therefore you should wear only the things that make you feel this way, and not tiny dresses (or any thing else for that matter) that might make you feel too self aware and uncomfortable.

Finally - do not change anything too drastic in your appearance before the date. Clearly when you got yourself a date, your partner already liked the way you look, so don't try to change your appearance in order to impress your date.

Be natural and relaxed and you'll be at your best.

Online Dating Services Not Just For The Younger Generation Anymore

(category: Dating, Word count: 465)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

If you're over the age of 40, you may not think the online dating scene has very much to offer you. But you would be wrong!

Not only are people 30 years old and younger signing up for online dating services memberships in record numbers, so are people much older than that. So if you're a little more, shall we say, mature, you'll be pleasantly surprised to find yourself in good company on an online dating service website.

Actually, the company may be so good, that you can finally tell your nosey friends to bug off and stop trying to fix you up. You can make your own dates using an online dating service, and they'll be dates you'll really want to go out on because online dating services give you the chance to get to know people before you go to the trouble and expense of going out on a date. Now, you can't do that with that blind date your friend Sue keeps trying to set you up with, thank goodness.

And you don't have to worry about security and confidentiality on online dating websites. All your personal information is kept personal until you're ready, if you ever are, to divulge it. If someone falls head over heels in love with you and they start bugging you, you can have that person blocked from contacting you. Too, if at anytime you feel someone is being abusive or threatening in any way, you can report them, and many online dating services will revoke the threatening person's membership.

So online dating is safe and secure, it must be hard, right? Nothing could be further from the truth. You simply fill out the membership form, pay, post your profile and picture if desired, then BOOM! You're in the online dating business!

What could be better! Well, just the fact that you can place yourself in a category or sign up at a special online dating service site that lets you be a bit more selective in the other mature or senior singles you'd like to connect with. For example, there are Jewish online dating services, Asian online dating services, and Christian online dating services just to name a few. You can even sign up for particular cities through websites devoted to them. Atlanta online dating services, Cincinnati online dating services, New York online dating services and Nashville online dating services are just a few examples. And while your own city may not have an online dating service of its own, you can check into dating services of larger cities close to you.

So what are you waiting for? The significant other of your dreams is just a mouse click away!
