Has a date showed up appearing nothing like what they portrayed themselves to be? What did you do?
I had as date last night. Her name was Julie (not her real name, of course!) and she found me on a free dating site, OK Cupid. It’s a really great site that’s much more than just a dating site. Check it out if you’re not already a member.
We went back and forth emailing for several weeks; spoke joyfully on the phone Wednesday night for about 90 minutes, and set the date for 5:00 PM after she finished work. I arrived about 15 minutes early and sat on a park bench sunning myself. It was glorious! She arrived 25 minutes later.
Find out why you're meeting all the wrong people online.
Every week, I hear people complain that they attract all the wrong people when they go on dating sites like Match.com or eHarmony. The opportunity is there to specify who you are and what kind of partner you would like, but most people go through tons of unappealing dates before finding someone suitable. So, what goes wrong?
Even the smallest lies can cause irreparable damage to your relationship.
If you are someone who occasionally lies, you know where your line is. You know when you feel it’s OK to tell a lie, and when you feel you must be truthful. But here's the problem: No one else will ever know where you draw that line. If you lie about even the littlest thing, your spouse or significant other will wonder about everything you say. You will never be able to articulate to your partner how you come to the decision to lie. And just as important, you will never be able to justify it.
This year, add a new resolution to your list: "Don't tell lies."
You know how you make healthy New Year's resolutions every year like "eat more broccoli" or "actually use my gym membership?" You might even make these resolutions before the new academic year picks up in September, or before your schedule gets more hectic in the fall after the lazy days of August. Well, this year, add a new one to the list: "Don't tell lies."
When a guy tells you he lives with his ex start running!
My friend and I went out for drinks last night and we were talking to these guys and one of them drops the bomb that, he lives with his ex girlfriend. But then in the same statement says I have a lot of money. Really?
If you live with an ex I understand leases and they are hard to get out of, but if in the same breath you say you have a lot of money than the lease should not be an issue. This guy was telling me you can call her and she will say we aren't together and he tells me to friend him on Facebook. And what does Facebook say.... he's in a relationship.
Have you ever wondered why men do things that drive women away?
In the end, all he had to do was say he was sorry and mean it. But, there is also the fact that he didn't need to do what he did to mess it up in the first place. Think before you do things because the consequence is ending something that you will miss and never get back.
When you are seeing someone and they are constantly messing up when do you just have to walk away.
When you have been seeing someone and they continue to let you down and do things that they know you would not appreciate; when is it time to cut your losses and move on? I have been seeing this guy off and on. We have not been exclusive because of the issues I have with his drinking and always having to be out. And then tonight took the cake. He puts on his Facebook a status that was so disrespectful towards me. It basically wrote that he was looking for a hookup and of course when he wrote this status he was at a bar. So everyone knew that that's what he was implying.
When most people think of being unfaithful to their partner, they think it means having an affair. However, there are several ways you can be unfaithful to partner: emotionally, physically and financially. The financial aspect is often overlooked as a problem because the one who is withholding the information thinks they are protecting their partner.
Just because he's not sleeping with someone else doesn't mean he isn't cheating.
When it comes to financial matters, is your husband being totally upfront with you? Financial infidelity can be just as devastating to a relationship as emotional or sexual infidelity. Don't let your relationship fall victim to this deadly threat. Here are some signs that suggest that — when it comes to his spending and saving habits — he may be hiding something from you.
In an age of common internet affairs, can trust only be achieved when sharing all things social?
A friend's status post on Facebook today inquired opinions on the idea of couples who jointly obtain social networking accounts. The world has gone beyond the presence of shared banking, to proving yourself trustworthy only if by agreeing to shared online profiles. Of course there will be defenders for and against the option. So far, I've only witnessed married folks participating in this action, and I say, to each his own.
