break the ice on a first date

Maybe you have been one of the lucky people who have met someone through online dating sites and you are no longer interested in playing those dating games or living the single life, but just how long will your new relationship last? We are here to give you some important pointers that both of you should keep in mind when you are involved in a relationship. Communication is key There is nothing more damaging to any relationship than to avoid communication. This means that when you feel upset about something, you should always talk about it with your partner. This is going to make it a lot easier for both of you to be able to get through issues without resentment. When you don’t communicate, you will start to build a certain level of resentment that will really damage your relationship a lot more than you could ever expect. Never assume that by not talking about an issue, you will be able to get through your issues and move forward. When you decide to say nothing, you will be moving backwards instead. Never be disrespectful You can fool around and be goofy and funny with each other, but you should do whatever you can in order to avoid calling each other offensive names even when you are joking. This will slowly start to lead to disrespect that is going to be extremely difficult to handle in the long run. Once that respect is lost, you can rarely ever get it back. Be very careful and set boundaries. Don’t play games We mean this in the sense that you should never play games that involve giving people jealousy or making them feel in any way emotionally hurt or blackmailed. If your partner does something that makes you feel jealous, you should let them knowing a calm manner that their behavior hurt your feelings. If you start playing that kind of game and you both do it to get back at each other, things are going to turn sour very fast. Move in together It doesn’t really matter how long you are with someone else if you have never experienced living together. There is a very simple reason why you need to move in together and that is because you will both get to see each other as you really are. No person in this world should ever even contemplate marriage unless they have lived together at least 6 to 12 months. Make sure that you do whatever it takes to make this happen. It’s the perfect test for anyone to know if they are truly compatible with someone else. Conclusion There are many aspects of a relationship that need to be taken care of in order for the bond between two people to grow stronger instead of being weakened by fights and disagreements. Always consider the tips we gave you because they are essential if you want to have a healthy relationship with someone.


Meeting someone for a date and taking the plunge into a relationship can be very scary, especially for a younger person. Dating advice isn’t always useful but we have some tips that can really work. But dating does not have to be as scary as it may seem. There are certainly a lot of choices to be made, and indeed, you may be working on planning out your whole future. We should not be afraid to make mistakes or be rejected, because these are all very important parts of life. It is not easy to meet your perfect match and to work over all of your differences. Following some of the steps below will help immensely in the search for love. One of the biggest and most important steps to preparing yourself for the dating world is to take the proper mental and emotional steps to make sure that you can deal with any setbacks that come your way. Even the best laid plans can fall through, and it is important to be able to handle the situation appropriately and maturely. With the precautions taken, a bad situation can be approached in the correct manner. Life is full of many different hurdles, and sometimes it may feel like a roller coaster. No one is in total control of their life. Sometimes a person will find their potential match without even putting in the effort. It could be a coworker or a classmate. Other people put in many hours of online dating and speed dating, without seeing a result for years. Meeting up with local singles can seem really scary, but sometimes it is well worth stepping out of your comfort zone. It is absolutely true that if you respect yourself, and if you exude confidence, you will be much more attractive to potential suitors. You need to take care of yourself, and respect yourself in order for others to respect you. Never beat yourself up over your mistakes. It is good to treat yourself and to relax in order to prepare yourself for a date or a meet-up. Fear and anxiety will be easily noticeable to the person you are attempting to court. Stress is a big part of anyone’s life, but knowing how to handle this stress is what makes the difference. If you are young and attempting to find someone to spend the rest of your life with, you want to make sure that you are making the right decision. This can be scary, and sometimes you might feel like you are being rushed into something. The important thing to keep in mind is that the right person will always wait for you and will let you take your time. No matter what the search for love brings your way, being prepared for making big decisions will help you to relieve some of the stress along the way. Taking care of yourself and making sure that you are ready for life’s twists and terms will leave you feeling […]


Every guy needs to know how to talk to girls. Are you single and are you wondering why this might be? Don’t despair – there could be several reasons for this and all of them are probably good ones! Perhaps you have been single for a while now and people have begun asking you why you don’t start entering the dating scene again. Yes, the pressure to do so can be intense, especially when it comes from well-meaning family and friends who just want to see you happy. But would you really be happy dating just yet? Perhaps you’ve had plenty opportunity over the past while to date but have simply not met the right person. You are perfectly right there – it is never a good idea to date someone simply for the sake of being in a relationship. You should never settle for anything but the very best for yourself: you’d be doing yourself, as well as your partner a great disservice. If you’re still hurt from a past relationship (no, we don’t mean one from many years’ ago, but a recent one!), take your time and allow yourself time to heal. Rebound relationships are recipes for disaster and will cause you more damage in the long run. The single life can be a busy life, too. If your schedule doesn’t allow for a meaningful dating relationship, that’s okay! There comes a time in everyone’s life when they have other priorities, such as their careers or children. If your job keeps you busy fourteen hours per day, including weekends, it may not be the best time (or fair) to pursue a dating relationship with someone. At times, we need to focus on ourselves, grow as people and learn to love ourselves before we can love others. If you find yourself in this space, do not feel ashamed to admit that you need some time out from the dating scene to work on yourself. This will definitely benefit your future relationships in the long run. If you have a penchant for travel, the single life is perfect. Fulfilling all the travel destinations on your bucket list, whenever you want to, is so much easier when you are single. What’s better is that you do not have to justify the expense or the time away to anyone! Being single need not be something to be embarrassed about or something that needs to be changed. If you are happy with your status quo, leave it as it is and be happy in your skin. Many people have the incorrect perception that if you’re single, you’re unhappy. This is an extremely outdated and prejudiced perception which puts all single people in a box. Single people today enjoy loads of freedom, independence and self-discovery. Many single people are today amongst society’s happiest people. Never be ashamed of single status – wear it with pride

Couple Relaxing in Meadow

Online dating is a phenomena that has completely changed the way that people in our culture start relationships. Nearly half of all romantic relationships start online. Despite this there are still many people who have a natural aversion to online dating because they think that it will not allow them to get to know someone else as well as face to face encounters. With all the ways to communicate via the Internet, including video chat this should be less of a concern. For everyone with doubts about whether online dating is for you here are three different benefits about online dating. It is more relaxed: When you are online dating, there isn’t as much pressure to say or do the right thing as there is when you are dating someone in the traditional way. For starters, you can read what you are about to say before you say it in a chat room, whereas in real life, you can’t edit your words once they are out. Another benefit of this relaxed dating style, especially for women, is that there is not the pressure to constantly look perfect. You can spend time talking to your romantic interest online without having to spend hours grooming prior to your date. Online dating allows you to get to know someone better than traditional dating: Online dating allows you to focus on the emotional part of your relationship rather than the physical. Since you primarily talk in online dating you are able to get a deeper sense of who a person really is and their character than if that person were to sit across from you in a restaurant on a traditional date. This ability to get a closer look into a person’s heart can make it easier to determine if this is the right person for you. You have a wider pool to choose from: In traditional dating your location and your lifestyle determine the type of people you meet. If you live in a rural area and you are usually busy with work, you won’t have as many romantic prospects as you would if you lived in a major city. Online dating, however, levels the playing field and allows those from small towns to find someone they can connect with. For those that feel like an outsider in their own community this is especially important because it allows them to find someone with a similar background or interests that they can start a romantic relationship with while still maintaining who they are as a person.   Online dating allows more people the opportunity to find someone that is truly right for them, avoiding the heartbreak or rejection that they may face from traditional dating. Online dating offers options for absolutely everyone, which is a great advantage over traditional dating where your local dating pool may be limited. If you have hesitated to try online dating because you feel it isn’t the same as traditional dating, perhaps now you know just some of  the […]


For anyone on the dating scene, whether a newbie or a seasoned professional (is there such a thing?), there are certain aspects that are crucial to master if you want to succeed at the art of dating. We’re going to show you 4 tips for dating sites that you need to know.  They are as follows… 1) Ask For Introductions. And don’t be shy about it, either! As they say, if you don’t ask, you don’t get! Many single people are too shy about letting others know that they are single and ready to mingle (which is baffling because there is no shame in being single). Let it be known to friends and co-workers alike that you’d be more than willing (but not desperate, of course) to be set up on dates with any of their suitable friends that match some of the qualities that you’re looking for in a mate. You never know what might happen! 2) Trash The Tech When on A Date. Not literally, of course, but since we are so focused on our phones, computers and tablets these days, it is easy to let this habit spill over into a date. Ask your date if he or she wouldn’t mind if the date could be a tech-free one and if you could focus entirely on each other instead. Sounds much more romantic, doesn’t it? If you met online, it is especially important that you give each other your full attention and not get distracted by incoming text messages or emails which could be saved for later. After all, first dates are all about getting to know one another and there could be nothing worse than reflecting back on the date and realizing that you got to learn absolutely nothing about the person because you were both so focused on your phones.   3) Date Your Opposite Ideal. If you’re on the dating scene, you have, by default, not found your ideal mate yet. This means that you have potentially been looking for the incorrect ideal person all along and your previous partners may have been wrong fits for you. So, broaden your horizons and consider dating someone you ordinarily would not date. Who knows, you may discover that their personality, in fact, does suit your own!   4) The First Date Is Not An Audition For Marriage. If you view every date as an audition for marriage, you will never be able to relax with your potential love partners and this could actually jeopardize the relationship. Your date will be able to pick up on the tension and may interpret this as desperation. For many people desperation makes them run a mile, and you most certainly do not want this! So, learn to relax and view the first date as simply the possibility for a second date and nothing more.   Diving headfirst and blindly into dating is never a good idea. A bit of planning and good advice should always be considered beforehand. If you […]


If you’re going to succeed at dating, you need to know how to talk to girls. The best way to impress a girl on the first date is to make her laugh. If she finds you to be a funny and entertaining person, then she might even fall in love with you at first sight. A lot of free dating sites give this advice, but very few give you the tips on how to make her laugh. In general, humor originates from surprise and hence when you are out on your first date, try to find unusual subject and unique points of view that not everyone talks about. Having a fun, interesting or humorous perspective surely that is what make people laugh. Above all, DON’T BE BORING! When out on the first date, most guys do some censuring of their conversation before saying anything to the woman. This looses the spontaneous effect of the conversation and in such cases, many smart conversation turn into boring one. Hence speak out whatever is in your head and do not worry.  You will find that the girl will find you a lot more interesting when you’re just being yourself. When telling a funny story, always be spontaneous and do it with confidence. But a word of warning. Do make fun of her or tell any jokes at her expense. After all, you should be laughing with her, not at her.  Telling an off-handed joke at her expense may hurt her feelings, and that’s a big “no-no” on your first date. In the process of making the girl laugh, many people try to talk about subjects which they think the girl will find interesting. But this is the wrong approach as it’s way better to just be yourself. If you will find the joke or topic to be interesting / funny, then she probably will too.  


A famous soccer coach once said, ‘the greatest barrier to success is the fear to failure.’ This insightful quotation can really apply to the world of dating.  The fear of rejection can often play mind games on you when trying to meet someone new (or even on the first few dates). This is powerful relationship advice. Although confidence is not the only factor in a successful date, it is one of the most important factors to your quest for love. Let’s face it, confidence is sexy. Confidence inspires us. Confidence is what tells someone that you’re the kind of person they should be with. After all, if you don’t even believe in yourself, how can you expect anyone else to? You find a lot of information and advice about this on many blogs, articles, free dating sites and even possible from your own experiences. Dating experts say that confidence is the key to feeling relaxed and attractive. It’s that fun, relaxed, “I believe in myself” attitude that will make you irresistible to the opposite sex. A recent survey found that women tend to be much more confident than men in dating situations. Women feel less nervous and speak out frankly, while men often suffer from a lack of confidence. Some people speculate that this could be an evolutionary response designed to protect. Thousands of years ago when humans lived in more primitive tribal situations there may only have been a couple of single women available in the tribe. So you had to be sure not to screw it up with them or you may never have the opportunity to reproduce. This may also be why confidence is also so attractive to people in general.  Remember that being confident and believing in yourself will dramatically increase your chance of getting the attention of that special someone. Physiologists tell us that generally men do not talk nearly as much as women. Men tend to be more visual and it is the woman who often does most of the talking. However, in order to boost your confidence, you must talk more. Not just when you’re on  date or see a women you like. Practice talking to people all the time. In line at the grocery store, at work, at the gym, wherever. Then when you do see someone who catches your eye, you’ll feel comfortable starting a conversation with them. But what to say?  Ask open ended questions and come straight to the point. When the girl sees that you’re a confident person, she will feel secured and attracted to you. She may even start thinking about taking the relationship to the next level. If you’re not good at talking to strangers, try signing up for a free dating site.This is a safe and easy way to practice talking to new people. You will find many local singles in your area who are are also looking to meet new people.  


In Jane Austen’s world, people met at local balls or parties where young people were formally introduced.  They would dance, chat over punch, and a long ritual of courtship would ensue until such time as marriage was put on the table.  Today in the mobile world, people meet online using dating websites or geosocial apps for local singles.  There is less time to make an honest first impression, which is why crafting your profile and understanding how to read the profiles of others is so important.  Without this art most are in for a long line of first dates with nothing beyond it.  Creating an online dating profile which will inspire curiosity and romance, and also, weed out those that really are not a good match for you has become an art, and a business.  There are actual dating consultants who help people write their online profiles the way people specialize in writing resumes.  If you have experienced the phenomenon of a lot of first dates with no real “keepers” it could be because you are marketing yourself wrong. Craft an honest but provocative profile All dating websites require profiles.  Profiles are the single most important part of an online dating experience.  They are a resume for a job, and like so many resumes they don’t stand out—not because everyone is the same, but because everyone writes them the same.  Explain what you like is more practical and specific than telling someone who you are because that’s impossible to do in a single page.  All you can do is drop clues.  Saying you are the type of person who likes doing things outdoors, for example, is very generic.  Does that mean you like to go rock climbing or just walking through a farmer’s market?  Someone who likes to go on walks isn’t necessarily the same person who likes backwoods camping.  So be specific.  When you say, “I love backwoods camping, hiking, and canoeing” an entirely different, and specific picture is painted than just, “I like to spend time outdoors.”  Being specific also makes you distinct from other profiles.  For book lovers, instead of saying you love to read books, explain what books you like to read.  Really read.  Not books you wished you read, but books you actually read.   This is another problem with online profile creation.  People will often write what they think others want in someone or the person they want to be, instead of the person they actually are.  So don’t just say you like Jack Kerouac because that sounds cool, because you might meet someone who has actually read his books and poetry that will quiz you about them.  So be real. Honesty is the best policy And on that subject of “being real”, let’s talk about the dating websites profile pictures.  All too often people will pick photos that no longer look like themselves, or they will Photoshop them in order to look “better” or “younger.”  When you meet someone in real life and you […]
