How To Meet Local Swingers Online

Finally, an online website for local swingers!

You've seen countless online dating websites, promising you'll find true cyber love. Blah. I got so sick of this! I began a search....a search for

something worth my time. I wanted to meet real girls who wanted to have a really good time. I wasn't interested in a long-term relationship or a future wife.

To be completely honest, I was looking for a one-night-stand. Hey, I'm a guy. I'm not afraid to admit it! It was Friday, I was lonely, and I just wanted to have

a good sexy time with a new face.

Well, I'm telling you right now, you are lucky. Lucky that someone else did all the work for you. I am not exaggerating, I looked almost every night

for two weeks. TWO WEEKS. Then, finally, some random little article on some crappy website mentioned a place called Fling (AKA DrearieDearie). A place

with girls who know what's on your mind, and let you know what's on their mind! He said he had met a girl a few nights earlier from Fling AFTER he had

experienced a video chat with her (so he knew there was chemistry), and " was one of the most amazing nights I've ever had," he promised.

Of course I was skeptical. But it sounded like there just might be a light at the end of the tunnel. Could it be? Could it be that I finally found what I

was looking for? I finally found online local girls who were as crazy as me!

Well, it offers a free membership, so I was very excited. I signed up, and in ten minutes I was looking at HUNDREDS of half-naked girls within ten

miles of my house! I was blown away. Words cannot express. Commence messaging.

If I remember correctly, I messaged about eight girls my first night. One of them replied instantly! She said she was bored and wanted to hook up. I

still remember my heart fluttering. I ended up talking to her on the phone for a bit, and eventually meeting up with her later that week, along with three

other girls. I KID YOU NOT.

That first week, I knew I had found something amazing. Something great. Something for men who want to meet dozens of women who want to

have a wild time. It it truely an incredible resource, and I have yet to find another site quite like it.

The first step? Signup!

The second step? Browse pictures of girls in your area, look for the ones online now. By the way, you will automatically be transferred to girls in your

area! The computer detects your general location. It's so easy.

The third step? Browse! Phone calls, video chats, webcamming, messaging...just a few of many ways to gain chemistry with your future fling!

The final step? Meet, meet, meet! You'll be surprised at how many girls in your area are on Fling. I know I was!

And it all again.

I sincerely hope I've given someone that had my problem a solution. It really is an amazing place, and I can't believe I survived without it, hah.

Really. You're just gonna have to trust me. Actually, you don't have to trust me...try it, see for yourself.

Happy flinging! And if you'd like to email me to tell me how Fling changes your life, feel free!

Relationship Deal Breakers

(category: Relationships, Word count: 809)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

In the 37 years that I have been counseling couples, I have discovered that there are only a few issues that are true relationship deal-breakers. Many of the issues that tear relationships apart are not actual deal-breakers. Rather, most divorces and breakups are the result of one or both partner's unwillingness to learn from the conflicts that exist in all primary relationships. But some conflicts and differences are actual deal-breakers.


Early in my career as a psychotherapist, I worked with Mary and Cal. Mary and Cal met when Mary was 38 and Cal was 47. Cal had been married before and had two adult children, while Mary had never been married. Cal made it very clear to Mary that he did not, under any circumstances, want more children. Mary seemed to accept this, but secretly hoped to change Cal's mind once they were married.

A year after they were married, Mary brought up the issue of having children. Cal was appalled. He felt angry, trapped and betrayed by Mary's secret hope, as well as by her dishonesty. Mary begged and pleaded, hoping Cal's love for her would soften his position. But he stayed committed to his decision not to have any more children.

This situation has a very sad ending. Mary was devastated. She loved Cal, but having children was actually extremely important to her. She didn't want to leave him and she couldn't let go of wanting a child. The stress of the situation eventually eroded her immune system and she died of ovarian cancer of few years after bringing up the baby issue.

I learned a lot from Mary and Cal's experience. I learned that the baby issue is a deal-breaker. It is not healthy for someone who really wants a baby to give that up, and it is not healthy for someone who does not want a baby to go along with having one. This deep and basic issue needs to be dealt with head-on, early in a relationship, before people move ahead with commitment and marriage.


Rhonda and Fred fell in love in their late 30's. Each had jobs that they loved and that were very important to them. Fred was the vice-president of a large company, while Rhonda had a flourishing practice as a pediatrician. They both lived in Los Angeles. All seemed fine until an incredible opportunity opened up for Fred - one that he had always dreamed of. The problem was that it meant moving to New York. Fred's work became a deal-breaker.

Some people can commute and maintain a relationship, but this was not realistic for Rhonda and Fred, since they both wanted to have children. They realized that if either of them gave up the work they loved, they would feel very resentful. They had no choice but to end the relationship. Even though they loved each other, they recognized that their relationship would soon erode if one of them gave themselves up.


Dishonesty and infidelity can often be deal-breakers, depending upon the situation. Some people can learn from and grow through these difficult situations, while for others the wound is too deep to repair.

Mandy and Hal were in their 50's when they met and fell in love. Both were in unhappy long-term marriages, which they decided to leave to be with each other.

However, Hal had married when he was very young. He had spent his life working hard to support his wife and children. He had never had an opportunity to do some of the things he really wanted to do - like travel on his own or explore relationships with other women. He loved Mandy but he felt trapped. He wanted his freedom.

As a result he started to pull away from Mandy, which was very painful for her. They received counseling to try to reconcile the situation. Mandy was willing for Hal to leave and travel for six months, but Hal was reluctant to leave Mandy. Mandy had not expected a man in his 50's to need to sow wild oats.

Then Mandy found out that Hal had slept with another woman. His pulling away was bad enough, but his infidelity was a deal-breaker. Mandy ended their relationship the day she discovered the affair. She told Hal that she still loved him but could not continue this way. She left the door open by telling him that if he ever got his wanderlust out of his system, she would consider trying again.

Dishonesty about money can also be a deal-breaker, such as finding out that your mate is earning money by selling drugs or through some other illegal operation.

Most conflicts - conflicts that are really about communication and control issues - can be resolved when both people are willing to learn. But some conflicts are true deal-breakers.

Quick Tips For Your Wedding Invite Wording

(category: Relationships, Word count: 334)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Wedding invitations are one of the most important aspects in arranging a wedding. Not only in a design sense, but also from a content perspective. You and your soon to be husband or wife need to decide what wording will go in your wedding invites. Many newlyweds often decide to use poetry or meaningful excerpts in their invitations. Some take another route and decide to write their own thoughts. Finally, we have those hosting a more informal event, who use quirky and creative wording to give a more fun feel to their invite.

So where can you start drawing inspiration for your wedding invite? How about from you or your partners past experiences? If that idea doesn't appeal to you, you can also draw from where your wedding will be located or how it will be styled. There are literally hundreds of different things you can draw your inspiration from. The few we've mentioned above are just some ideas.

To give you a bit of a head start, we'd like to remind you that most invitations begin by directly addressing a particular guest and asking him or her to be present the wedding. Various wordings can be utilized for such a request. When addressing the person, you need to avoid using slang terms and try your best to use high diction. You really don't want to sound like an illiterate.

One thing you need to take into consideration when wording your invite is the caliber of your wedding. By caliber, I'm referring to whether your wedding is a formal or more casual wedding. In the case of the latter, you have more flexibility and can get away with a lot more things - such as using a more lax diction.

Once you've completed your invite, don't forget to mail it with the proper additions. Typical invites are mailed out with some sort of RSVP card. You can add some additional items, such as directions.

Dating Online Without Becoming Pray For Scammers

(category: Relationships, Word count: 506)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Online scammers mainly aim at people of different income levels, backgrounds and ages throughout the world. There is not any specific group which is more prone to become a prey of a scam. The practice of Scamming is successful because it looks like real. It seems to fulfill your desire and needs. Scammers always attempt to mould you by inducing your nature to create the automatic reply they need. Here are few tips how to identify and avoid scammers at online dating sites.

1. Be cautious in the dating online scene. Use your emotional intelligence. If you have an ok profile without a personal photo on any dating website you will rarely ever get any answers from females. If you get lots of love letters from attractive good looking woman, you should think yourself: Would you be able to step into love with the profile you made that fast? What is there that could make her fall in love that quickly?

2. The first thing that creates an impression that the person who is communicating with you is a scammer is the mails. Scam letters are sent to a lot of people, are very neutrally, impersonally made for bulk use. The scam-emails can often be used for both the sexes, male and female. They will mention to you that they liked your pictures or description although you don't have a self description or photo on internet. Scamming artist fall quickly in love, they will address you very quickly sweetheart, darling, baby or love honey.

3. If anyone is interested in you will get a number of questions detailed about your hobbies, life, before the individual decides to meet you. A scammer artist never asks you regarding your personal details. They will use to talk in general manner: How was your day? How is everyone at home? How are you today? Scamming letters are often a different thing from what you mention to them. If you discuss about particular your things, they will not even remember one week later and keep on saying that the season is ok.

4. If you try to keep in contact for few months and if your date shows great interest and pretends to be willing to spend his entire life with you, ask yourself why is he/she still searching for online love? People who love somebody, will quickly delete their own profile from the dating website, since it's not a big issue to post a new addition if they become single again. If you view your lover still online, you can make a new contact id as a new user from a separate email address and check what reply you get. If your mate is willing to come to you and loves you like anything, you should not get him/her two times.

5. Never send any money for tickets and visas! Go to the person's place or country and visit him/her there. Use well-established, trustworthy marriage or dating agencies for arranging and meeting trips.

Sex Toys More Common In Women In Relationships Than Single Females

(category: Relationships, Word count: 656)

Nearly half of adult women currently use sex toys or have tried them in the

past, research shows. And women in relationships are even more likely to use them. Online sex toy stores such as Vibration-Station UK ( cater for both singles and partners alike and their range is well stocked with toys for both scenarios whether you are with a partner or not.

They state that the findings are interesting, however they stated that the use of sex toys by women from all age groups and scenarios was on the increase in general across the board, from their own independant surveys they had completed.

The report comes from Chicago's Berman Center. Directed by sex therapist

Laura Berman, LCSW, PhD, the center focuses on women's sexual health and


The online study, funded by an unrestricted educational grant from drugstore.

com, was conducted by Knowledge Networks for the Berman Center. The results

were presented at the Women's Sexual Health State-of the-Art Series

conference in Chicago.

A random sample of almost 2,600 women aged 18 to 60 were invited to

participate in the survey. About 1,600 agreed to complete the survey,

answering questions about their relationship status and use of sex toys.

According to the survey:

Forty-four percent said they currently use a sex toy or had done so in the

past. The most commonly used sex toy was a vibrator.

Young women aged 25-34 were the most likely to have ever used a sex toy, with

51% of participants in that age group reporting current or past sex toy use.

Women aged 55-60 were just as likely to have tried a sex toy at some point in

their lives. However, they were half as likely as younger women to currently

use sex toys.

Most current or past sex toy users were in relationships and said they did

not view the devices as a substitute for a partner.

Of unmarried women living with their partners, 43% said they currently used

sex toys, and 17% said they had used them in the past.

Among women in relationships who were not living with their partners, 35%

said they currently used sex toys, and 21% said they had done so in the past.

Sex Toys Less Common Among Singles

Sex toy use was less common among women not in relationships. Twenty-two

percent of single women said they were current sex toy users; 12% said they

had used sex toys in the past.

The use of sex toys was most popular among white women and women with some

college education.

Thirty-four percent of white women said they currently used sex toys,

compared with 22% of black participants, 19% of Hispanics, and 8% of "other"


Thirty-seven percent of women with some college education (but not a degree)

were current sex toy users, compared with 26% of women with a college degree

and 29% of high school graduates with no college education.

Sex Toys no Substitute for Real Thing

Overall, women had a "neutral-to-positive" outlook on sex toy use.

After controlling for demographic variables, "current sex toy users, whether

or not in a steady healthy relationship, were significantly more likely to

report a higher level of desire and interest for sex and less pain during and

following intercourse," says the report.

"However, current and former users who were not in steady healthy

relationships were still less satisfied with their overall sexual life than

their counterparts."

Most sex toy users (about 90%) said they were open about it with their

partners. Almost two-thirds of women said their partners were supportive of

The main reason cited for current or past sex toy use: curiosity.

How To Use Eye Contact To Create A Good Impression

(category: Relationships, Word count: 724)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Researchers have discovered that one of the most striking differences between people who are socially confident and those who are shy, is that confident people have much more frequent eye contact with their conversational partners.

Many shy people never make eye contact at all, tending to look downward or away, instead of looking at their conversation partner's face.

Most North Americans, especially Caucasians, prefer to have a lot of eye contact when they are talking with someone. When a person doesn't make eye contact with them, North Americans tend to assume that person is hiding something.

When you are speaking with someone who is from a culture that prefers a lot of eye contact, be sure to keep looking at that person frequently while you are talking, even while you are wondering what to say next. You don't need to use a piercing stare, a friendly gaze will do.

If it really bothers you to look directly into another person's eyes, you can look at the person's face without focusing solely on the eyes. If you gaze generally at the eyebrow area or the bridge of the nose, this is close enough to the eye region that you will appear to be looking at the person's eyes.

You may find that it eases your own discomfort if you let your vision go slightly out of focus.

Whenever you are in conversation with someone, keep the majority of your focus on the other person. If you glance around the room too much, or look too frequently at other people, your conversation partner may assume that you are bored, or that you are looking around for someone else you would rather talk with.

If you have difficulty knowing exactly how to make eye contact, you can benefit from practicing in front of a mirror, or with another person.

While some people have difficulty maintaining eye contact during conversations, others have the opposite problem. They stare too intently into other people's eyes when they are talking to them, often making their conversation partners feel very uncomfortable.

It can be very unpleasant to be on the receiving end of an intense stare, particularly at close range.

In many animals, the use of staring is part of a power struggle to determine which animal is dominant over the other. In humans too, a struggle for dominance over another can often be signaled by a staring contest. Avoid intense, prolonged staring into another person's eyes, except in very rare situations.

Although some people use staring intently as a deliberate tactic to intimidate others, not all people who stare piercingly at others mean it as an act of aggression or dominance. Some people who stare very intently into the eyes of others are quite unaware of the negative impression they are creating.

If it has been your habit to stare intently into the eyes of other people without looking away, you may have been making your conversation partners very uncomfortable.

You can lighten the impression you are making by smiling more often, nodding, and by gazing at the entire face as well as the eyes. In addition, you can frequently glance away for brief periods.

Although most North Americans like to have a lot of eye contact with their conversational partner, this is not true of all people. If you have grown up in a cultural group that expects eye contact, it can be a shock to find out that eye contact is not always welcomed.

There are many countries in the world where looking someone in the eye is considered to be disrespectful and an invasion of privacy. Even within North America, there are some cultural groups that prefer not to make very much eye contact.

In many cultures around the world, averting your eyes and keeping them lowered is considered the polite, desirable thing to do. In North America, people of African American and First Nations origin usually prefer to make far less eye contact than Caucasians do.

If you are dealing with someone who has different cultural practices than what you are used to, make an effort to be sensitive to the expectations of the other person if you want to have a smooth relationship.

Deadly Relationship Habits

(category: Relationships, Word count: 1429)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

How many of you have ever been involved with a significant other who wanted you to do something you didn't want to do? I doubt that I'm the only one. By virtue of a significant other relationship, there will be times when our partners will want us to do things we don't necessarily want to do and conversely, there will be times when we will want our partners to do things they don't want to do.

This is perfectly normal. The key, however, is what we do about it. Can you remember the behaviors your partners used to get you to do things their way? Dr. William Glasser, in his book called, Getting Together and Staying Together, talks about the seven destructive relationship habits. They are: complaining, criticizing, blaming, nagging, threatening, punishing, and bribing or rewarding to control. Do you recognize any favorites?

I like to add guilting to the list-this seems to be a favorite behavior of mothers. I know, because I am one. You can recognize this pattern in martyr type behavior. Saying things like, "After all I've done for you, you can't do this one little thing for me?" I've actually heard some mothers play the "childbirth card". You know the one. It sounds like this: "I was in labor with you for 36 hours! All I'm asking for is this one thing."

I know for me, I am a world class nagger-just ask my children. The question of "Will you clean up your room today?" can be asked in a variety of different ways, with varying tonal inflections and volumes to convey a variety of meanings. By the time I've reached the end of my rope, it would frequently sound like, "How can you be so lazy! If you don't do it right now, I am going to do something to hurt you!" (This pain usually took the form of haranguing my child for an extended period of time.) Does this sound familiar?

With regard to nagging, it is my belief that after you've said it three times, your significant other has probably heard you and is not planning on obliging you any time in the near future. Repeating your request most likely will be unsuccessful at getting you what you want.

Complaining and criticizing are other behaviors we often engage in to get our loved ones to do something they don't want to do. Does this sound familiar? Why can't you be more like _____________? Do you have to do it THAT way? Why can't you ever do something I want? You never do things the right way. You are so lazy, stupid, frustrating, aggravating, etc. Do these sound like relationship strengthening behaviors to you?

I think the blaming, threatening and punishing behaviors are self-explanatory. Blaming sounds like: It's always your fault. Threatening goes like this: If you do or don't do ______________, then I'm going to (insert something you won't like). Punishing often takes the form of withdrawal. It may be that we give our partners the silent treatment or we may withdraw affection or at least our enthusiasm during intimacy.

The last destructive habit to discuss is called bribing or rewarding to control. This may require a little more discussion. Bribing or rewarding to control does not mean the same thing as negotiation. Negotiation in a relationship is very healthy and necessary to the long term success of the relationship. It involves two willing partners, each interested in helping the other person get what they need, while at the same time meeting their own needs. Bribing simply means that I am going to dangle a carrot of what I think you want in front of you to get you to do the thing I know you don't want to do.

I can remember often asking my youngest son to pick up his room. His room was always a mess and quite possibly a health hazard. I remember one day, I decided to put my nagging behavior away and try something new. So I said something like this: "Kyle, if you clean your room today, I'll let you have a friend come over and play." Do you know what his answer was? He said, "I don't want a friend that bad." And the room didn't get cleaned! What a surprise!

Bribing or rewarding to control also needs to be distinguished from spontaneous rewards. Can you feel the difference between these two scenarios? You want your partner to attend an office party with you that he or she does not want to attend. In your best attempt to bribe him or her, you seductively express what you might do when you come home from the party.

Compare that to, you ask your partner to attend the party. He or she agrees. You go and have a wonderful time, spontaneously enjoying some quality intimacy upon your return home. Do those circumstances feel different to you? I bet they would to your partner.

No one likes to be controlled no matter how subtly or skillfully the controlling is administered. External control is one thing human beings are almost guaranteed to rebel against.

The bottom line is that we often engage in destructive relationship patterns with those people we claim to love the most. We typically don't use these destructive behaviors with our friends. If we were to try, we soon wouldn't have any friends left!

When we think about our progress over the past 100 years in terms of technology and relationships, it is very clear that we have made great strides in the technological field and very minimal gains, if any, in our relationships with each other. Can you think of things we have available to us today that didn't exist 100 years ago? Today we have cell phones, computers, satellite, televisions, DVDs, CDs, space travel, etc. The list is virtually endless.

One of the reasons we have made such huge gains in the technological field is because those who are working at making those advances are willing to try a new approach when their approach is no longer working. They adjust their behavior to fit the situation. This is simply common sense.

However, in the area of interpersonal relationships, would you say that people get along better today than they did a century ago? Do husbands get along better with their wives? Do parents get along better with their children? Do teachers get along better with their students? Do neighbors get along better today? Most would admit that there has been little, if any, improvement.

The reason for this lack of progress in the relationship department is that when our external control behaviors don't work to get us the results we want, we take those same behaviors to the next level. We are convinced that they will work if only we do it more often, harder or faster. In other words, we get a bigger stick!

The reason this mentality has survived the ages is because we can usually crank up the pressure or find the one punishment or threat that will work to get us what we want. Did you hear me say external control doesn't work? Of course it works! That's why we use it. The question remains: At what cost?

When we consistently use external control behaviors in our relationships with those we love, what does it cost? It costs us the relationship. I'm not saying the relationship will necessarily end, although that is a definite possibility. What I am saying is that we keep whittling away at the foundation of our relationship and then wonder why there has been no relationship progress over the past 100 years or even longer.

There are alternatives. There are ways to simultaneously honor ourselves and our partners. The first step is to recognize when we are using external control behavior. We will probably be able to recognize it long before you feel able to do anything about it. This is acceptable. Of course, the best case scenario is that from this moment forward, every time you consider externally controlling your partner, you stop yourself and use a caring habit instead.

However, if that is not what happens in your case, don't despair. Recognizing external control is the first step-bringing it into your conscious awareness. Once it's there, then you can make a decision about what you are going to do about it.

Logistics Of Wedding Invite Wording

(category: Relationships, Word count: 339)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Get in on the facts you need to know when wording your wedding invite.

Most people fail to understand that their wedding invite content needs to embody the caliber of the wedding they will be hosting. There currently exists no type of invite that is universally fit for all sorts of weddings. This leaves you and your future spouse with the chore of deciding what type of wording to use. As if wording isn't a big enough issue on its own, you also have to decide what names go on the invite and in what order. There are many things to consider in this dilemma, including what side of the family is responsible for the heftiest financial contributions.

Many people somehow fall under the impression that wedding invite wording always has to be formal. It really doesn't. You can keep the invite very simplistic and include you and your spouse's name and a request to the particular recipient to make him or herself present and your wedding.

Naming parents in your invite can be quite a complicated process. It's common for a typical invite to first mention the bride's parents, followed by the actual invite, than the name of the groom and his family. While this is not very complex in itself, problems can get quite apparent when divorced or step-parents come into the picture. You want to limit the number of people you name in the invite as you may end up confusing guests. You also want to remember to take your parent's feelings into consideration. Omitting people without first consulting them can result in problems. Thus, be very careful before you strike someone from the wedding invite.

When it comes down to it, you and your soon to be spouse have a lot of control over how your wedding invite is both worded and organized. You need to maintain a certain degree of flow in the invite, but aside from that you are essentially given a lot of flexibility.
