Check out this wonderful article by Lauren Martin on the different between “beautiful” and “hot.”
Alright friends, we’re adults now. We’ve graduated college. We have full time jobs. We’ve made it. Life is different now, and the way we dated in college just doesn’t work anymore. Our free time outside of work is now at a premium, and having that time wasted by a potential romantic partner who doesn’t have their shit together is probably the most frustrating thing we face in our quest for romance. Here are four dating rules for the professional world that will save you from accidentally offending others.
“Let’s not put a label on things,” he says, after you’ve been seeing him for a couple of months already. “I definitely like you, and I want to keep seeing you, but I’m just not in a good place for anything ‘official’ right now. Let’s just enjoy what we are.”
You really like this guy. It’s been months (maybe even years) since you’ve found a guy that can get you this excited, and things have been going great. Yet despite what feels like a nearly perfect situation, you still have to have the awkward “so what is this?” conversation.
After some awkward, unproductive explanation of what you both expect from the relationship, you are still no closer to the answer you were hoping for, feeling confused and frustrated. You are chest-deep in what I call the “confusing, undefined modern relationship,” and it’s more common than you might think.
You don’t want things to end, but you also don’t want to get screwed over. Contrary to popular opinion, it can work. Here’s my advice for how to handle it, how to make sure you don’t get burned, and how to ensure the situation is of the most benefit to both of you.
Hey there readers,
This was too good not to share. It’s a step by step guide to weight loss and healthy lifestyle change for those who are truly starting from zero and struggling to make healthy living a habit that sticks.
Earlier this year, I posted about making yourself more attractive in 2014. Adopting healthy eating habits is one of the best ways to do so this year. Go back and read that post, then consider if weight loss and healthy eating habits are the right first step for you in your quest to a better dating life.
I’ll be there with you. I’m actually hoping to drop about 20 pounds by summertime. Yes, your dating expert is a little overweight, believe it or not!
Read this infographic I discovered from a Reddit discussion last week. It really makes weight loss sound doable for even the most overweight person!
Today’s post is written by Yasmine Ashuraey of Skilled Attraction, a date coaching and matchmaking firm. Read on for powerful methods of reducing anxiety and feeing more confident in your dating life!
Mutual love, trust, and enjoyment of one another’s company. These are some of the building blocks to amazing, fulfilling relationships. These building blocks extend to most intimate human relationships, including romantic relationships, friendships, and family relationships.
Love and trust take time to build. Enjoyment can be discovered instantaneously. In fact, outside of our family relationships, we expect to enjoy our time with someone before we consider a more intimate relationship.
Think about it for a moment. Would you invite someone into your life as a friend or romantic partner if you did not enjoy his or her company? The answer is, probably not. You’re at the receiving end of this as well. Others won’t invite you into their lives if they don’t sense they can enjoy their time with you.
This is where anxiety is worth exploring in our lives. High levels of anxiety can, and often will, cripple our capacity to discover our romantic partner. It does so by masking our personality and therefore creating an artificial barrier between us and another person. Anxiety blocks our capacity to have enjoyable experiences with another person.
What I want to help you accomplish in this article is the capacity to reduce your anxiety to minimal levels on a first date. Yes. Yes. And yes! It is certainly possible. Be gentle on yourself and give yourself time to incorporate these tips.
The end result is powerful. By saying goodbye to anxiety, you’ll be able to ease into conversation and connection, and therefore recognize if you enjoy another person’s company.
Are you ready? Let’s get started.
Today’s post is written by Sarah Williams of Get-a-Wingman.com, where she publishes dating advice for single guys. Today she has written this article for women who may need some help deciding when to move on!
When you start dating a person, everything usually goes smoothly in the beginning. You find each other attractive and try to put your best foot forward. Infatuation may lead you both to compromise your individuality when it comes to your relationship. Sometimes the situation between you and your new partner goes smoothly and a good relationship that lasts naturally develops. But that’s not how it should always go! We keep forgetting that finding a person that really lives up to our expectations and who also wants to be with us, is extremely rare. Everyone has their own characteristics, habits, and things that they are used to, so it’s difficult living up to somebody else’s expectations..
None of us want just a mediocre relationship. While we are young, we want to share our life and our best moments with someone who really deserves it and brings us happiness. It’s something that everyone dreams about, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s easy to achieve. Nowadays, the media influences our idea of the “perfect” relationship. You might think of two lovers from a romantic comedy, getting together after some initial turbulence. The final scene of these movies usually shows us how beautiful their relationship is and how happy they are, making us think that it’s relatively easy to find our one “true love.”and that it will automatically go great once we find this person. But these romantic comedies never show us what happens after a few months or even a few years? Nope! Most of our romantic relationships in life fail, and the sooner we understand why the better.

Dancing is awesome. I learned how to salsa dance at age 18, then I learned swing, then two-step, then all the other styles I could. I was instantly hooked and have been dancing ever since.
Aside from simply being a lot of fun and a great personal challenge, getting into partner dancing was one of the best things I ever did for my dating life. Let me share why.
Happy New Year! Here’s to everything you accomplished in 2013, and to making 2014 even better.
As you know, our goal here is to help you find and maintain successful relationships. A big part of that is understanding what the opposite sex really finds attractive, and improving yourself to maximize your odds of catching their attention.
Too often I hear people ask “how can I get a boyfriend/girlfriend?”
This is a valid question, but it has a fundamental flaw. The question assumes that finding a significant other depends only on external factors, rather than on yourself.
A more appropriate question is “how can I become a person who is naturally attractive to the opposite sex?”
This question addresses the internal factors. It focuses on what we can do before we ever meet that new person to maximize our odds of success. This question is the first factor in the successful dating life equation.
Today we are going to answer that question.
For this post, I must give thanks to two friends: my friend Taylor (follow her on Twitter @TaylorAsk) and my friend Kate at XO Sports In Stilettos. Kate shares a woman’s perspective on today’s sports at her blog. Be sure to check it out!
It’s the first week of October. We are well into Fall, and more importantly, we are well into Football Season. It’s no secret that us guys love football, and that we love girls who love football. For us, a Sunday doesn’t get much better than watching our team win while sharing some drinks with our friends and with an awesome lady.
Unfortunately, this can lead to an awkward situation: the guy you like is into football, and you aren’t. He invites you to watch the game, but you’re worried you’ll make a bad impression by not being into it or by looking silly.
No worries! We’re here to help. Here are some quick Do’s and Don’ts that will help you make a great impression at a game-watching event, even if you are completely dense to football. Take note, and you’ll be sure to have him and his friends saying “That girl is great. We need to have her around more often.”
