I like a girl who has a natural look, I love the true beauty of a woman. Maybe just some eye makeup, and lip gloss thats all a girl needs, something to bring out those pretty eyes of a girl. Personal story… My last girlfriend would put on a pretty good ammount of makeup, but she also played alot of sports and I found her really sexy when she didn’t have all that makeup on, I told her all the time but she just could not go out in public without putting it on… bugged me haha.

In March of 2009 there were 3,184 women in the Greater Toronto Area GTA that were actively using the service. In March of 2010 the number had increased 4 times to 12,442. When the service was first launched back in 2001 everything from the name to the color scheme of the website was designed to attract women. CEO Noel Biderman knew men would join the site easily enough it was the women he was worried about. It seems Mr. Biderman did not have much to be concerned about. A number of experts are saying that the female infidelity rate has increased by 50 percent in the last 10 years. This is due to that fact that women now have much more exposure to potential partners through work and the internet than a generation ago.

We have been seeing each other for about a month and a half. Now, usually once a week. Sometimes she was covering a shift at work or was going somewhere, but it has been consistent. I know she likes me, I can see the fire of desire in her eyes sometimes, and I really like her back. We seem to have recently developed a real level of comfort Even though she’s Korean, we have an understanding and we joke a lot. I don’t know about women her age, or Korean girls, but we haven’t really gotten very close yet. We always hug when we say goodbye, and on one of the days she came to where I live. We sat and watched kids cartoons which was actually really funny, and she curled up into me on the couch. But we haven’t kissed or done anything really intimate yet, is this normal? Am I just young and impatient? I understand that I need to spend time getting to know her and getting her to trust me, but how long does that take? A month? More? I’m going to meet her after work, and once before she said something about how I should come over to her place and try some of this Korean spirit called Soju. Is she inviting me down ‘for’ something? Or is this another ‘house call’? I can be patient Oh, can I be patient!, I just need to know if I need to make the move or not. I have read and heard that women from Asian countries like Japan and Korea see Western men as the forceful kind, and more forthright than their Eastern counterparts. If this is true, is she just waiting for me to take the first move and be that brash, offensive westerner? I’m smart, and patient, but I’d like a second opinion.

Reviewers have weighed in by the carload — some even before the iPad was officially on sale. User reports are starting to trickle in as well. Most say that the iPad is a very impressive device but, as our new report on tablet computers reveals, it’s not necessarily for everyone. Additionally, a few noteworthy negatives that are sometimes skimmed over in reviews can make the iPad a very poor choice for some. read more Mon, 12 Apr 2010 12:31:05 -0500 To be honest, porn obviously cannot repl… /i/To-be-honest-porn-obviously-cannot-repl/ /i/To-be-honest-porn-obviously-cannot-repl/ New Answer – To be honest, porn obviously cannot replace a real relationship, nor can it even compare to being with another human being. Calling it cheating doesn’t seem very accurate to me. However, I can see the above scenarios as being possibly a bit uncomfortable if there is a possibility that the fantasies start becoming more and more real. I still don’t think it is cheating. I guess I am probably a little too laid back on certain things since I have become one of the least jealous people I know. Unless the person I’m with is making out or starts getting sexual with someone else, I almost wouldn’t flinch. After all, trust is what makes a relationship and if you cannot trust the person you are with to be faithful and make the right decisions, then it wasn’t meant to be. Going back to the porn being cheating, I would say that it is possible that these COULD lead to cheating, but by themselves I don’t think you could consider it cheating. Smoke doesn’t always indicate fire. What sexpert said about rules, though, I think is pretty accurate though. If rules are established and both people agree to them, then they should follow them. Some people could be insecure about what their partner does, though, and so they would consider calling watching porn or any of the similar activities “cheating.” Not saying that watching porn when you have kids should not be controlled, however. Not everybody thinks like me, I know. But I stand behind my point.

However, there’s a trap to avoid at the other end of the spectrum as well: settling for the first decent person you find. Everyone understands that the dating scene can be grim, and we’ve all heard the horror stories of online dating: the people that don’t match their photographs, or manage to keep their completely offensive personalities out of their profiles. Thus, it can be something of a surprise when we finally meet someone who does match their pictures, who doesn’t appear to have anything outwardly wrong with them, either in appearance or personality. It’s far easier to meet nice people through online dating than the horror stories would have us believe and that’s where the hard part begins.

Don’t get me wrong, I’d had boyfriends, but dating at that stage consisted of going to the movies, or going to an amusement park, usually with a group of friends. Contrast that with dates in the movies or on TV even high-schoolers were shown at romantic restaurants with drippy candles and soft lighting, dressing up and bringing presents how did they even get there if they couldn’t drive?. Shudder. It all seemed too… too heavy. Give me an evening bowling instead. As an adult, I’m only marginally more romantic I still look for fun more than romance.

Sun, 11 Apr 2010 08:01:04 -0500 Everybody is different /i/Everybody-is-different/ /i/Everybody-is-different/ ‘CaJoh’ Everybody is different. There are actually differences in how much or how little we can see a relationship working or not working.There are those who are superficial and tend to be attracted to the here and now and not the long term. These seem to be the ones who go on to the next person once the one they have has gone cold.Then there are the ones who are desperate for a relationship “ANY” relationship and tend to ignore the warning signs of a destructive relationship.Finally, you have the ones who can discern the difference between initial attraction and long term love. Again, there are variations to the degree they can see this but they are the ones who seem to have a long term relationship that works.

Can anyone help me? /i/Stuck-in-a-tough-situation-with-a-girl-Can-anyone-help-me/ /i/Stuck-in-a-tough-situation-with-a-girl-Can-anyone-help-me/ New Question – Hi, I LOVE a girl truly. To get to know more about my situation, check my previous quesiton here- http:www.leftos.comforumview649 OR, In a nutshell, I I’d tell you that this girl started coming close to me a few months ago and although never proposed her love to me but I was pretty sure she at least likes me and might be waiting for my proposal. We were MORE than friends. When I proposed to her, she turned me down by saying she has been with her new boyfriend for just 2 months. She turned me down by saying ‘You’re a very good guy but when I told my BF about your proposal, he said if you leave me, I’ll commit suicide.’ School has reopened and she still wants to be friends with me. Recently she got her new cellphone and since then she regularly Texts me, mostly with her messages saying “hey dear What’s up?”, and “you’re a very sweet friend and I’ll support u in every problem of yours.” I’ve told her how much I love her but to no effect on her. Last week she told my close friend who treats her like her sister that “I don’t have any boyfriend at this moment, and please don’t tell this to Vishal i,e, me.” That close friend of mine told me all she said as he also knows I love her truly and he reckons she is lying in order to not to let her image down in front of her brother-like friend after all what she did to me. I’m confused at this girl’s behavior. At once, she tries to act like my lover, when I propose her, turns me down and then wants to be good friends with me again, despite whatever happened between us. So, how do you think I should proceed from now on? Thanks in advance. : Sun, 11 Apr 2010 06:21:03 -0500 A kind of so-so love /i/A-kind-of-so-so-love/ /i/A-kind-of-so-so-love/ What is a so-so love?

Both in negative and positive ways, meeting those needs, even in small ways, contributed to his sense of connection with other human beings and his transformation into, and out of, the skinheads. Here are some of the needs he mentioned:Care and Interest: People showed interest in him, his life, what life was like for him.Acceptance: They provided safety for him, not only physically, but safety from criticism.Doing something together for a higher cause. Meeink said that doing missions together was very bonding. They did things for the cause whether spray-painting synagogues or beating someone. A mission can be destructive or constructive, but groups that do things together for a higher purpose bond members more and more to the group. I often tell couples that doing things together to make the world better is very bonding for them as a couple, but it also bonds them to other people with whom they share the experience.Years ago, I used to work regularly in retreat programs. Doing that bonded me to other people on the retreat team in very powerful ways. Some of them are my best friends to this day. Others that I may have worked with once or twice, could see me in a restaurant, and the feeling of immediate connection is there.Meeink went to prison for kidnapping and beating a man for hours and videotaping it. In prison, his life began to change and his hatred started to dissolve. How?Seeing beyond appearance and efforts to connect with him:What began his transformation was black guys asking him to join them in sports in prison. They were friendly toward him. They talked together about their girlfriends and babys that were on the way. They looked beyond his swastikas and his ‘role’ and saw him as simply another human being.Offering hope of something better: He said that one guy was the first person that ever gave him a sense of hope simply by saying that there was still a chance when his girlfriend broke up with him. That man and one or two others help up a vision of the possible and of the possibility of creating a new life.Emotional Intimacy: By sharing what was important to him and some of those men letting him see their thoughts and feelings, they created basic intimacy seeing into each other.Contact with people he had stereotyped replaced fear and hatred: He decided that because of his experience with fellow inmates, he would no longer hate Blacks, Latinos or Asians and would just hate Jews because he didnt know any. Then one day someone told him a guy was paying good money for help to move some antiques. The guy turned out to be Jewish. Meeink didnt care because he needed the money and worked 3 days for an agreed 100 per day. Expecting the guy would cheat him because he was a Jew, he was surprised when the man not only paid him his 300, but gave him another 100 because he had worked so hard. Recognized and expressed the positive in him: The Jewish man drove Meeink home and when Meeink made some comment about his own stupidity, the Jewish man told him to never call himself stupid that he was very smart, even if it was from street-smarts. Meeink made some comment about this Jewish man ruining his last stereotype.Meeink longed for connection, for acceptance, for someone to see who he really was inside, to give him hope and to treat him like a fellow human being.Now Meeink speaks to kids across the country on hatred and harmony and has a program to help kids through hockey. He is working with others for a higher cause and bonding with others, but this time it is to make the world better and to build a society that respects every human being, even those who are different from us.We can all learn something from his transformation.

BlackPeopleMeet was launched in 2002 and has become very popular with singles aged 35 to 45. The dating site has almost 1 million unique visitors a month and now reaches 4 percent of the total Black population in the United States. There are currently a few percentage points more women on BlackPeopleMeet than men but when compared to the real world as opposed to the online world where you have 7 or 8 women per man, online dating for the African American women becomes a much better option to find a partner. While ultimately BlackPeopleMeet was designed for black people looking for other black people, other races can be found on the dating service.

Sat, 10 Apr 2010 22:41:02 -0500 Does she sound interested, Should I remain hopeful /i/Does-she-sound-interested-Should-I-remain-hopeful/ /i/Does-she-sound-interested-Should-I-remain-hopeful/ Q: I had coffee with this girl I barely knew a couple weeks ago, and I thought it went great. She emailed me afterward and said she had a great time and that we should do it again. Fast forward to Monday, and I ask her about getting together again. She says it sounded great, but that week might be too busy. No word from her the rest of that week, except a couple casual encounters.The next Monday, she sat on the opposite side of the auditorium from me in chapel I think but next thing I knew there she was asking if she could sit with me. We talked for a couple minutes, and I mentioned that we hadn’t done anything. She wistfully said I know, then said she had planned to call me but didn’t have my number, which I then gave her.This past Saturday, I invited her to an event which she couldn’t go to because she had taken her roommate to the ER. I first called her then emailed, which she replied to she said early on she doesn’t check her phone often. She thanked me twice in the email for the invite, and again in person later that evening, then made a general statement that we should get together. So my question is, does she sound interested? Should I remain hopeful? – JordanAmy: Dear Jordan, Yes, she is interested but she wont be for much longer if you dont make something happen very soon. Shes seeking out seats next to you, thanking you three times for an invite, saying that you should get togetherare you really unsure of her interest? My real question is what are you afraid of? but Ill get to that. First, heres how to proceed. Call her, today if possible, and ask her out for a specific day and a specific activity. Most likely, shell say yes and youll go out. If she says that she cant make that day, ask her if theres another day that would be better for her and arrange the date for that day. So, be specific and get a date concretely planned.To prepare for when this situation comes up in the future, you may want to look at your timidity and question whether its really justified. Whats the worst that can happen? What are your biggest fears? Look at them and evaluate their actual likelihood we usually greatly over-estimate the likelihood of our fears. The worst than can happen is that you ask her out and she says no. How long do you think it would take you to get over that? Again, we usually think it would take much, much longer than it actually does. Youre at a much greater risk if you dont act on your opportunities than if you do. With this girl, and with girls in the future, remember to just ask. Nothing that bad can happen, and many times some very good stuff will happen when you put yourself out there. Good luck!

I would go up to and her kinda play dumb….”hey didn’t I see you the other at the student lounge?” then maybe make joking reference to her little fall. After that just start getting to know her a little bit, ask her questions about what she does, etc. And at the end of conversation ask her for her number and if she wants to go out sometime. To avoid falling into the friends zone you have to just make sure you create a level of attraction while you’re talking with her. Flirt with her, but don’t make it extremely obvious. Portray confidence, keep eye contact, and being that she’s older, make sure you show a high level of maturity. You have to intrigue and make her curious about finding out more about you.

I havent read the book yet, but the radio interview was fascinating. I was curious about what leads to such hatred and how could someone who hates so much, turn that around?Part 1 will look at factors in the formation into a skinhead and ways we do them in less intense ways in our own lives.In Part 2 we will look at the needs that were met both in the skinheads and people in our lives that can lead to transformation and renunciation of hatred.How Hatred is Born:1. Humiliation, powerlessnessMeeink grew up with his mother and her boyfriend who was abusive. He describes being beaten and how he grew up being afraid of men. He also had an experience at school of being one of about 2- white kids who had to run together from the bus to the school so they would not be bullied. No one at home was interested in him or what he experienced, thought, felt.. He hung out on a street where kids from similar backgrounds spent the day, including skinheads. Some of you may have violence in your neighborhood or home, or you had it as a child. Most of us think we are above that behavior and think we are nothing like Meeinks stepfather or skinheads.But there are many ways people, and perhaps we, humiliate and disempower people without ever touching them.Have you ever:Criticized someone?Used sarcasm?Told someone they were stupid or didnt know what they were talking about?Discounted or ridiculed what they believe in?Ridiculed them in front of others?Used put-downs or contradicted them repeatedly in front of others?Berated them for what kind of student, child, parent, spouse, person they are?Made fun of their weight, nose, or some other physical attribute?Have you ever gone behind a family member, spouse, partner, refolding laundry, re-wiping the counter, etc. because the person didnt do it exactly the way you do it?Expressed lack of belief in their ability to do something or to change?Demeaned what they do or how they do it?Done everything for someone because you have to have control or do it in the right way?Always find something wrong with someone or what they do?Failed to notice and express appreciation, what they do right, good things about them?2. Lack of interest, care or attention by parents:He said that no one had ever asked him what his life or his experience was like and when the skinheads asked him, it felt like they cared.Even in relatively healthy families we have to be on guard for disconnection.Coming home after school or work and spending the rest of the evening in front of the TV, computer, video game, book, or work.Never asking about your partner or childs day, experience at school or work or ask, but then turn your attention to something else before they can even respond.Being so busy with to dos that you never have time to sit and listen.Not listening.Telling your partner or someone else you dont care about what they are saying or dont want to hear it or you already know what they are going to say.Trying to talk or listen while multi-tasking.Interrogating.Jumping in to advise or admonish instead of trying to understand what the experience was like for the other person.Discounting the other person’s experience as unimportant or just their problem.3. Low self-esteem:Meeink talks about feeling inadequate, a failure and how with the skinheads he felt like someone. Being very smart and creative, he signed up for a cable access station and started his own TV program in his teens. He also said how his swastika tattoos and crazy look appealed to TV viewers and he became known and looked up to.I heard an interview several years ago about a man who was a Muslim religious extremist and he described many of the same factors. He was bullied, felt helpless and describes the feeling of finally being someone, finally having a sense of power by becoming very fundamentalist. He was right and everyone else was wrong. He knew the truth. He was part of something more pure than his family and friends. Fortunately, he also turned his life around to promote respect and tolerance of difference.4. Fear of othersMeeink was afraid of his stepfather and of men because of the violence. He was also afraid of people who were different from him or who he did not know and that was fed by the skinheads.In what ways to you promote fear of people who look, think, believe, act different from the way you do, whether through race, political views, religion, culture, or lifestyle?Have you ever forwarded e-mails that communicate how we have to fear another group of people or a political figure?Portrayed others who think or believe differently as ‘evil’ or ‘bad’?Used stereotypes of groups or religions to tell others to instill or fuel fear?5. Experience of power in a destructive way:He describes an incident when he was about 14 where a large skinhead put him on his shoulders, walked into a bar and beat up some guy. Meeink describes the feeling of being on the other side of a beating for the first time in his life.Have you ever praised someone in life or movies for beating the crap out of that guy.Made comments about physically hurting or destroying someone or a particular group of people?Laughed about violence in a movie?There are ways we create similar climates of shame, powerlessness, humiliation, and fear with people in our lives probably not to the extreme as Meeink experienced — but destructive to people around us nevertheless.Next in Part 2: What Turns Hatred Around What Human Beings Need in Relationships Fri, 09 Apr 2010 20:21:01 -0500 A Good Cologne to Attract Women /i/A-Good-Cologne-to-Attract-Women/ /i/A-Good-Cologne-to-Attract-Women/ Let me tell you, women are very attracted to men who wear a good cologne.

Here’s his story:I was eyeing your archives and came across the top 10 fragrances to seduce women, and decided to give some of them a try. I have always had good luck with Eternity, but it was that time, and I was in the market for something new. I went down to the local P.X. and sniffed around. My decision was exact! I chose Safari, and let me say, it works! … here is some real quick history about me, I am a veterinary technician, so I have constant contact with beautiful women, and it helps that I work in a college town too… It didn’t matter what I did today, women flocked! My boss even commented on it! Personally, I think it was the combination of the fragrance, and the confidence it gave me.

New and stricter Energy Star standards Energy Star 4.0 for TVs will become effective on May 1 and an even stricter standard for TV Energy Star certification will go into effect in 2012. Meanwhile, last month the Federal Trade Commission announced that all TVs will soon be required to carry EnergyGuide labels just like the ones on home appliances like air conditioners and refrigerators. California, of course, has enacted a law limiting the energy consumption of TVs sold there, and reports say that other states are considering following suit. Would it surprise you to learn, then, that something else in your home-entertainment system could be drawing even more power than your TV? That something is your video game console. read more Fri, 09 Apr 2010 17:21:01 -0500 Love It or Leave It: Rachel Bilson /i/Love-It-or-Leave-It-Rachel-Bilson/ /i/Love-It-or-Leave-It-Rachel-Bilson/ The brunette beauty sported a cream mini with a cut-out bra and matching pumps at the Gen Art Film Festival’s screening of Waiting for Forever.

No… You’re NOT going to go up to your woman next time you see her and say something ridiculous like… “I want to light you up…” That probably wont help. What you do want to do is NOT make it a mystery that she’s important to you and you want her–really want her. If your relationship is like most relationships today.. She wants desperately to feel you and when she cant feel you and your love she will do all kinds of bizarre things to try to get you to show her that you want her and she’s important to you. Question From A Reader… How can I create more intimacypassion between myself and my woman without making it seem obvious? My Answer… First of all I commend you for wanting to create more intimacy and passion in your relationship with your woman. This is great because not only are you acknowledging that you want more… It’s showing you that you’re different than most guys in that most guys don’t want to do anything when they first notice that passion is starting to fade way. They might notice it but do do anything about it. Again, it’s great that you’re not doing that. The challenge I have with what you are asking is the part where you are wanting to “not make it obvious that you are trying to create more intimacy between you and your woman. What I do and what other men do who go for what they want is this..

If you’re shopping around for one, there are some factors to consider. Steam mops are designed to clean vinyl, tile, sealed wood and laminate flooring with hot water, eliminating the need for scrubbing and harsh chemicals. This makes steam mops particularly beneficial if you have pets or children crawling on the floor, because they don’t leave any chemical residues. In essence, the mop heats the water until it becomes steam, which gets shot through a pressurized nozzle in the mop head. Some mops can actually create steam hot enough to sanitize floors and kill dust mites in mattresses. read more Fri, 09 Apr 2010 14:41:03 -0500 Ooh!

If you make a habit of re-washing bagged greens, or simply buy loose greens at your grocer, a good salad spinner is something you’ll want in your kitchen arsenal. Spinners take some of the hassle out of salad preparation by saving you the trouble of having to pat dry your lettuce after washing. What’s more, they prevent the dilution of other ingredients and dressings by removing excess water from your greens. The good news is that the majority of salad spinners are pretty inexpensive, and there are plenty to choose from.

If there is any truth in the saying you are know by the company you keep then I really do not want to be part of this forum. I dont even want to use my name which of course I dont, anymore not even a fake one precisely because I think that it is better to be faceless and nameless on a site where so many of the people so frequently trash one another in the most crass and crude fashion. There is no need to even allow base-level rantings to be posted. It does not help anyone and it turns forums like this into a platform for the psychotic and deranged to bark at everyone. It scares me when I start imagining the types of people out there. When you want to join a good club you join one where 90 of the people are basically good, normal, sane and with a fair degree of sophistication, and NOT where 90 of the people are society’s outcasts. I no longer wanted to post precisely because I just didnt like the quality of the posts and the fact that they often reflected a rather sub-human species which is not at all interested in wanting or building or maintaining good relationships. People who are psychologically messed up must go for counselling and not resort to hate-speak where no-one can see them. How about someone psychoanalysing the spineless, characterless perverts who love to vent their hatred and expose their darkness on the net, where no-one can see them or find them. Will these hideous specimens of humanity ever say face-to-face the stuff that they are so comfortable saying here? My conclusion is that NO-ONE on this blog is really interested in harmonious relasionships. The few who are are only here for a brief while and then leave quickly once they see just how much human trash is out there spewing nonsense. Its all well and good to shout free speech, but when the free speech taints the character of a site that supposedly has good intentions then one should wonder whether it is not perhaps a better idea to curtail that free speech if only just for the sake of the sane people out there.

Barrie Turner of British Columbia Canada is alleged to be in connection with the company which has over 200 dating sites offering executive dating services. Turner was arrested after he crossed the border to pick up mail at a U.S. post office box where customers are told to send payments. In the last 5 years there have been more than 100 people who have filed consumer complaints about the company for fraud. They accused Executive Dating of not providing any legitimate matchmaking servicers that they had paid for. It is estimated that the Executive Dating sites received more than 1.2 million in revenue.

New and stricter Energy Star standards Energy Star 4.0 for TVs will become effective on May 1 and an even stricter standard for TV Energy Star certification will go into effect in 2012. Meanwhile, last month the Federal Trade Commission announced that all TVs will soon be required to carry EnergyGuide labels just like the ones on home appliances like air conditioners and refrigerators. California, of course, has enacted a law limiting the energy consumption of TVs sold there, and reports say that other states are considering following suit. Would it surprise you to learn, then, that something else in your home-entertainment system could be drawing even more power than your TV?

I thought this was a pretty lame excuse but when he asked to go on another date I decided to give him the benefit of the doubt and agreed. He text and emailed all week, then on the day of the date canceled again. His excuse this time was that his ex had dropped their daughter off and he had to look after he for the weekend. He is still texting and emailing but I really don’t know whether I should just leave it or not. Is he interested? – KKAmy: Dear KK, My guess is that hes somewhat interested because hes keeping up the conversation, but hes not ready to meet yet. If he really wanted to meet you, he would have found a way to make it happen by now. Of course his cancellations could be valid, but I doubt it.There could be any number of reasons hes not ready to meetmaybe he is seeing someone else or several other women and hes having a hard time juggling, or maybe hes just nervous or shyany reasons are just speculation at this point though. All we really know for sure is that he is interested and comfortable enough to keep texting but, for whatever reason, hes not interested or comfortable enough to take it to the next level.Heres what I would do: keep the email and text relationship going IF you want to, but dont let yourself get too excited about this as a potential relationship until youve met face-to-face a least two or three times. Shift your attitude so that you just think of him as a friend until and unless he takes action to change that. Dont ask him outlet him initiate things. If he does ask you out again, tell him very clearly that since hes cancelled twice already, youre very suspicious. You can agree to go out one more time but if he cancels, no matter how legitimate his reason might seem, you will cut all ties with him. So, talk to him as much or as little as you want, but dont get attached until he proves that he is for real. Good luck!

Especially of a father daughter relationship. I just think that there’s too many factors in life to pinpoint one specific relationship as being a key factor on a person’s personality. I understand in RelaxIt’s post he was basing it on personal experiences but that sample size is way too small to be considered a possibility for anything. So to summarize, I’m sure father daughter relationships can say something about a girl but I don’t think it has such a significant impact that it can determine how they will act in future relationships with men.

A woman who makes the above statement is merely a child looking at right now instead of the future…she considers nce guys boring because she isn’t mature enough to get that SHE has nothing to offer a nice guys except cheap worthless sex and so the bad boy fills her need for a quick fix of feeling validated by using her vagina. Nothing more. As for James, remember, Bullocked tried to dye her pubic hair for him and got BURNED for it- and yes, that was amusing- and yet he still cheated. Guess her millions and HER vagina meant nothing to a ‘bad boy’ who went after the very women he actually WANTED. Funny thing is, she thought MARRIAGE would’ve changed him also. It’s amazing how ‘lust’ can make one ignore the obvious screaming red flags and complain that you got burned when everyone saw what you missed. The most beautiful part is coming…even if she divorces him, he still gets HER money…and he can replace her with another woman asap. This is why I say if a woman wants a bad boy, then let her have one, as many as she can handle…and when she gets wore out, run through and rejected, when the bad boy focus on newer fresher game, she will look to the boring guy and find the biggest surprise of all… the nice guy doesn’t want her either. He knows of her past and refuses to deal with leftovers. He has figured out he is a rising asset and she is a depreciating asset, just like her bad boys…after a while, even bad boys wear out over time and get older, and not better with age…just like the women they deal with. Just remember-A woman loves a man unconditionally so long as he meets her conditions.

There is chemistry involved and, alas, the brain seems to unhinge during that early phase. But, once you actually get to know the person or to a certain degree get to know the person your brain should click in again and tell you whether or not this person is right for you. But then dont you think it is only an emotionally mature person and someone with a clear set of values and who knows who heshe is and where heshe is going who is able to quite accurately predict whether a relationship might be good or bad for himher? Those who, not through actual choice, but because they just cant help themselves, find themselves in destructive relationships dont know how to see a relationship or a person for what itheshe is worth. These people will probably never find true happiness in life, and maybe that is just the way that the world is and is meant to always be. There will always be good AND bad people, there will always be happy AND sad people and none of us is ever going to change that. It is the status quo and will be the status quo until eternity, in the same way that poverty and wealth will always be around. Much of it has to do with conscious choice, but a lot also has to do with plain lack of ability to consciously choose. We must maybe not expend so much energy over-analyzing the why and the wherefore, and just leave it be. I do not wish to tell people who to choose and what to do to create a good life for themselves, unless they ask. It amazes me that more people in the world dont actively pursue happiness, because it is NOT everybodys automatic right, and it doesnt just land in the laps of the chosen few. Happiness is a choice and a pursuit. The majority of people who lead fulfilling lives really do not spend any time thinking about why some people are hard-wired to act in stupid ways. Why do people in bad relationships have to lie to themselves and the world about just how exciting their lives are?

Relationships are not really that difficult, they just become difficult and complex if people do not choose the right mate. If a woman chooses a bad boy then she must expect a bad relationship and must not complain about the relationship or about men in general. If a woman willfully chooses a man who lies and cheats then she lacks self-respect. Anybody that enters into a relationship with a partner who is risky and very obviously bad is setting themself up for failure and they do not deserve any sympathy, ever. The reason these women defend the bad guy and portray him as exciting is because they know they cannot get a GOOD man who IS also exciting. Good men are NOT BORING. Good men who lead a boring life are boring. And, women who lead boring lives seek excitement from bad men because they dont know how to create their own. Anybody who fills their life with excitement and who is committed to living a great life and actively pursues their life dreams is not boring. The man who is a workaholic because he HAS NO hobbies and comes home at night and falls onto the couch in front of the TV and shuffles his way through weekends is boring. But even he will find his match in a woman who is equally sedentary and unexcitable, and they might be quite happy and content with their lives. But for a woman to consciously seek out a bad partner due to the perceived excitement that they create through their badness is just plain stupid. These women probably fit into one of two categories: 1. They have an extremely low sense of self-worth and zero self-respect brought about through circumstances, but are also too emotionally paralysed to do anything about it. 2. They are stupid, empty-headed and boring and will just NEVER get that these exciting guys use them and then dump them. Even these bad men with bad temperaments and bad traits have zero respect for these women, who unfortunately perpetuate the oft-held belief that women are stupid and crave love and affection so much that they will stoop to any level to get it. You see, these men are a very different breed and the cream of the male crop, so to speak! They are also not spread far and wide, and due to the kind of life that they have plotted for themselves they are also very picky about the women that they choose not content on being with a woman who will drag them down or try to latch on to them for a free ride instead of pursuing her own goals or finding things that excite HER. It is easier for people to go with the flow and not use too much effort or physical exertion to live a great life. Its so much easier to just eat whatever you want and get fat in front of the television. Its so much easier to drink whole kegs of beer and get a big gut than do any form of exercise. Its easier to get your high from drugs instead of risking your life paragliding. But, thankfully, there are men and women in the world who have made it their objective and lifes purpose to live the best life they possibly can, doing all kinds of activates, getting involved in some way and just staying on a path of continual GROWTH and IMPROVEMENT. When these men and women find teach other they have near-perfect, if not perfect, relationships. It is simply not true that good boring and bad exciting. But then again it depends on the definition of exciting. From what I have read on this blog exciting has a different meaning. It means cheating, beating up women, lying, getting drunk, taking drugs, and just generally being wild. Well, theres nothing exciting about that kind of immature and loser mentality. These men are jerks to the nth degree, but then I dont care that they are because I dont go after those kinds of guys and they do not influence my life in any way. For me the really exciting guys are the ones with interests beyond work and the four wall of their homes. Theres a world out there to be discovered, there are mountains to climb, oceans to dive, rivers to raft. There are marathons to run and bike races to do and caves to explore. There are charities to support, good deeds to do, orphans to take to the sea. There are parties with loads of friends where everybody laughs and has a good time and nobody needs to smoke pot to do so. Friends to exchange ideas with and tell your dreams to who will be excited for you and want to do the things with you. These are the REALLY exciting people in the world. They are SOBER and theyre having a bloody good time. And theyre going to lie on their death beds on day and say I had a good life, while the bad people are going to just lie there wishing they had done things differently. Wishing that they could have gazed at the stars or cycled in the rain.

His last girlfriend cheated. Long story short we hit if off went of a few dates over a 6 week time even spent the night at his place, but he started getting distant not calling like usual then we talked and I asked what was going on he said we were moving to fast and wanted to slow down but still wanted to see me and he was interested, and he liked me a lot, but he blew me of the following Saturday our usual date night but called Sunday and we ended up having sex. Then all the next week I only heard from him if I text him. Now this week I haven’t text him because I didn’t want to seem clingy, which he told a friend I can be and now I haven’t heard from him in 3 days the longest since we started hanging out as he calls it. Should I avoid calling him until I hear from him? Or how long should I wait before addressing him. I really really really like him.
