One thing we know, it sure as heck is never healthy. You can’t live without air, food and water. That’s it. Love interests, however, are in another category altogether. While that person may be a fun, fantastic partner or your soul-mate, or a dear, dear relative, endowing them or the relationship with that much power over your own life and the thought of "I can't live without you", is dangerous, and here’s why:
DATING ADVICE FOR WOMEN
Many sites, even those using fancy algorithms to match you with your soul mate can help you meet and date dozens of people, if that's all you want. They can even land you a warm body you may believe is your life partner but chances are, you still won't find the right person for you.
Relationships are awesome — let's just get that out of the way. Love is — well — lovely. All day long, we are surrounded by women who want to be in relationships, and for good reason. However, many of these same women are so caught up with worrying about their next date, or when they will finally meet the one that they forget how to enjoy the moment.
by Julie Robinson I found myself naked and in bed with Andrew a mere four hours after meeting him. I joined him for lunch on a rooftop terrace six blocks from my house. The first thing I noticed was that I was about three inches taller than him in my super-cute high heels, but he was so handsome it didn’t matter in the slightest.
There are a million men in the world that could be a great “fit” for you. Dating online gives you the opportunity to choose a partner who is truly the right “fit” for you. All you need to do is choose one of them. Follow these four simple steps. Step # 1: Love Yourself
Sometimes when it comes to dating, you wish you had all the answers on how to find the exact kind of relationship you're looking for. Of course, if you did, you'd be the most sought-after expert in the world. But, isn't there just one piece of valuable advice that all single women should be armed with when they're out and about looking for love?
When I look back at all the relationships that didn’t work out (that I so wanted to at the time), I realize that in every case, there were early warning signs that each guy gave me that could have given me some idea of the heartbreak I was about to experience if I had only been aware of what to look for. To spare you from what happened to me, to give you the inside scoop on what you can be on the lookout for, here’s my list of the warning signs that clearly let you know that this is a guy to avoid if it's a real relationship you're looking for.
Are you filled with dread thinking of being alone on the biggest "date night" of the year? The pressure of being single on New Year's Eve is even more daunting than being dateless on Valentine's Day. The reality of having no one to kiss at midnight can make you feel hopeless and discouraged, afraid that next year will be just like the last; that you will never find love.
This is the story of Mike, the fire fighter. And me. And our relationship. Now we all know there’s just something about a firefighter, right? The big strong hero, who lives to save people, and is coming to save us too. They’re special. And if they like us, then we’re really special. We’ve really been chosen. Or so we think. Or so I thought. After all, it was the beach. Where better for fate to bring him and me together. Sand, surf, sun and all of the endless romantic possibilities they represent.
Are you tired of riding the rollercoaster of love? Is your love life a constant dance of two steps forward two steps back? Well, when it comes to men, dating and relationships, you are not alone. In fact, there are over 50 million single women looking for love and like you many of them are frequent riders on this crazy ride. Unfortunately most of these women are tired of the constant up and downs and would love to get off the rollercoaster once and for all.
When it comes to professional athletes there is a public perception of that many of these guys are spoiled brats who make a tremendous amount of money because they have a God-given ability to play a sport. Because many of these athletes are paid handsomely and revered by the masses it is not uncommon for them to develop huge egos and a sense of entitlement.
Looks. It's one of the most interesting and controversial topics related to relationships. You have those individuals who say looks are very important and you have those who say looks aren't important because "it's what is on the inside that matters." So, who is right? If I have to pick, I'm going to side with those who say that looks are important. But before you start calling me a chauvinistic pig who only cares about how hot a woman is, hear me out.
In relationships and dating, (don’t act like it’s just me) women are constantly asking themselves this question, “When will I ever be enough for someone to love?” This question is deeply rooted in almost everything that we see and do. Clothing designers are making clothes smaller. Magazine covers are filled with these young, “skinny minnies” that don’t resemble ninety-five percent of the female population. These images shape our views and beliefs about our own “enoughness” (new word I called it first). The media has created the market for these beliefs but we as a feminine culture have bought into this hook, line and sinker. We have allowed our self-worth to be devalued by media and its flawed and vaunted portrayal of the likes of Brittany Spears, Paris Hilton, Jennifer Lopez, etc. These “marginally talented” these ladies (and I use the phrase “marginally talented” loosely) bring nothing to the table for us to sink our “self-worth” teeth into but an outward attractiveness that few women possess even with cosmetic surgery.
If you were alive in the 80’s and you were out of diapers you probably remember an infomercial with Susan Powter. Back then Susan was the queen of the infomercial. There wouldn’t be a day that went by where you wouldn’t see her face screaming back at you while yelling “Stop the Insanity”. Susan was all over the TV hawking her weight loss and fitness products.
As children, most girls are introduced to Disney movies before the ability to speak in complete sentences. While Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid are inspirational on many levels, the fairytale element is the same: Guy likes girl, guy woos girl, guy and girl live happily ever after.
There are over 100 million single adults over the age of 25 in our country, and for most of them, the thought of being single and dating is analogous to having a red hot poker jammed into their eye. Based on my research, most single women dislike dating and being single. When it comes to finding that special guy to share their life with, many of these women say that there is hope in their heart, but they honestly admit that they are not too optimistic that true love is in their future.
