We have all dealt with them and sometimes you have even been called one... a player. In my dating life I have been called more often than not an unemotional girl or a player. Yet at 29 I am starting to think maybe I am not a player per say. Maybe I just don't feel for many people or I only feel for the one in a million.
Something is definitely in the water! The past few months my guy friends have become more needy and my girlfriends have become more feisty and more about the "booty call". It seems men have decided, at least this month, that they are looking for love and some are definitely looking in the wrong places.
Dating is a necessary process in finding a mate. Your first date is also your only time to make a great first impression. And you only get ONE first impression, so you want to make that first date count. You should consider a few of the first date don'ts to help you successfully pass this first and critical stage of the dating process.
The past few months I have been giving advice to a friend about his relationship with his girlfriend. Or should I say his "friend". He thought she was his girlfriend, unfortunately she never got that memo or he never got the memo she wasn't interested in a long term affair. I found out through the wonderful world of Facebook that she was with, (shocker) another guy friend of mine. And of course that guy friend of mine was someone I knew pretty well. He is the type that gets what he wants, he doesn't wait around for anyone.
My best friends are all single. And at twenty-nine and being single that is devastating for most. My one friend has been back and forth with this one guy for two years. He likes to play a little game that is, I will call or text you when I want too and not a minute or day before. She would hang out with this guy and then she wouldn't hear from him for weeks and then magically he calls or texts her and says you want to hang out and even though she has been agonizing over the past few weeks as to why he hasn't called and why he keeps doing this to her, she inevitably says yes to hi
Your decision to remain celibate is based on your own, personal, selfish desire to meet the man of your dreams and avoid getting hurt. You want the rewards of a relationship without the collateral damage, and you are using your body – instead of your brain – as a bargaining tool.
Age is just a number when it comes to acquiring dating intelligence, understanding men and learning the art of dating. With a divorce rate reaching over 60%, many women are finding themselves in a dating atmosphere that is totally different from that of their ancestors. The dating game has definitely changed as more women are finding themselves over 50 and single. This has unfortunately lead to a spike in the HIV infection rate of women over the age of 50.
I have been dating for a while now and it seems it was a lot easier to date when I was in college and in high school. And I am wondering if it is because I am at a place in my life where I am successful, happy, and do not need anything from anyone? A lot of my friends are in the same spot. We are flourishing in our careers and financially content for our age anyways and have everything we want except for a partner.
So I met Coach Andrew Poretz about 4 1/2 years ago at a Quentin's Friends party in New York City. If you live in the tri-state area and you're not a member of QFNY, you need to be! There was immediate affinity, followed by hysterical laughter of everyone around us. Do you know what happens when 2 men have all around them laughing? They attract lots more people who also want to laugh. Big hint there guys.
Why are we so bad for each other? Have you ever wondered why relationships you've gotten into have ended so badly? Conversely, perhaps the opposite is true; relationships ends with no fanfare, fading away without a whimper. Wish you could evaluate a new prospect earlier in the dating cycle and cut your losses and run if it doesn't look good? Here are a few things to look for in anyone you date:
I had an interesting conversation with some of my close girlfriends and they all have said the same thing lately: "Why the games?" I honestly have had that issue before with my relationships with men. Either I push them away to see if they will come running back or they push me away to see if I will come running back. Why do we do this to each other? Because inevitably the relationship will not last because someone in the relationship will get tired of being tested. The reason why we do this is TRUST!
There is no feeling on earth quite as amazing as the feeling of being in love. There is a surge of endorphins and dopamine pumping through your veins giving you the feeling of being on cloud nine. There is a drop in serotonin which causes you to obsessively think about your beloved and the release of oxytocin and vasopressin causes you feel as if there is nothing you will not do to make the object of your affection happy. You are literally drunk on love, however, no matter how intoxicating the experience of falling in love is, you must keep your wits about you and not commit the common 4 m
In the age where women are just as powerful as men where do we draw the line of men using women and women using men? Is it still taboo to say that if a man is living off of a woman than he is less of a man? Or are we past that stage because of the current generation? The current generation has shown that women can be just as successful or even more so than a man. Since that's the case do we throw out our previous beliefs that our parents and grandparents has instilled in us?
Yes, I’m talking about the C-word today. A lot of people cringe when they hear this word. Some actually get a gut reaction and run away when it’s mentioned. But it has to be addressed- or you’ll NEVER find your true love and live your best life. The C-word I’m talking about is Commitment.
I'm generally a huge believer in being who you are, no matter where you are. Meaning, even on a first date, when you are trying to impress someone, you shouldn't be afraid to be authentically you. Unfortunately, some people take the concept of being themselves no matter what and run with it ... running their dates away in the process.
If you are getting ready to go on a first date, or have already had a few that have been a bit of a disaster; you need to know some great first date advice. The time women take to prepare for their first dates, either takes several nerve-wracking days, a few hours before that first date, or minutes before without a second thought.
