This guide is for everyone, whether in a new relationship or an established one.
Before we dive into managing our expectations of our partners, or other people in general, I want to explain that there is a difference between having standards of how you want to be treated and having expectations of how others should react to you.
Let's start with a generally accepted fact: Long distance relationships are hard. Really hard. If you've been in one, you can understand what it means to love and long for from a distance; there's a piece missing, not of you, necessarily, but of what you love, of home, of belonging, and even though you know exactly where it is, you can't just go and get it and hold it close. It's frustrating and lonely and fragmenting, and only the strongest couples make it through. These are couples who have somehow lucked into the perfect trifecta of love, circumstance, and timing.
So it's your partner's Birthday, your Anniversary, Christmas time, or Valentines Day... Perhaps you just woke up this morning and felt like your partner deserves the world, and you're desperate to give it to them, but you can't. Unfortunately, the world is difficult to obtain single-handedly, and I'll wager, way out of your price range. Still, you want to get your beloved something SPECTACULAR. The figure in your bank account, however, is less than impressive and the ideas you have are lack-lustre, used up, or non-existent. Not to worry. Here are a range of funky gift ideas that are sure to show how much you care, even when the money simply isn't there.
Sometimes it’s someone whose opinion you couldn’t care less about. But sometimes it's someone who you couldn’t care more about. No matter what you do, they always have something negative to say about you and always assume the worse about any of your actions. And sure, you have people who tell you the opposite every single day, but that’s just because they have to, right?
In this new article in our Supplement Guide, we will discuss a very current topic: the use of probiotics. These supplements can be found in supermarkets, pharmacies, and herbalists and are often recommended to people suffering from intestinal disorders, such as abdominal bloating or flatulence. Do you know how they really work?
American Sign Language (ASL) has steadily gained more exposure through television, movies and social media. It’s estimated that around a million people use ASL as their primary language.
Many people consider personal relationships with their loved ones very precious, some of the most valued things in life, so it is no wonder there are so many books and trainings on how to improve your love life. Everyone and their cat is practically ready to jump at a chance to give you advice on how you should go about organizing your relationship. The truth is, if there was a universal way to make a relationship work for a long, happy, and steady time, there wouldn’t be so many relationship books, specialists, and advice floating around. That’s all good, but there’s an underside. Not all relationship tips are working. Others aren’t working for you specifically, and some can be downright harmful. Here are a few relationship tips that shouldn’t be taken at face value.
Romance is hard no matter how old you are, but high schoolers might just have the most difficult time with it of all. After all, the whole point of high school (besides, I guess, academics) is for adolescents to learn how to participate in the social world. At my high school, however, there was no class on how to date and make friends with other people. Instead, I had to learn everything through trial and error.
Your partner may be pushing for reconciliation and forgiveness. You’re still trying to negotiate the emotional turmoil of discovering the person you loved and trusted has done something to betray that love and trust.
If you are a fan of Mindy McCready, you have probably heard her song, "Maybe He'll Notice Her Now." I have long liked this song, as well as Mindy herself as a singer. She had an amazing talent, and her songs always touch the hearts of her fans.
We have all heard that having date nights are important for relationships, but how many of us know why? Date nights serve an important function in amorous relationships by keeping the relationship fresh. This is accomplished by creating new memories and strengthening bonds. When planning a date night with your significant other, it is very important to consider sharing something new or special. When I say "sharing something new," I mean sharing a new experience together. This can mean a restaurant, an activity, or something that is new to both of you. Doing this will ensure that the date will be a quality one, because it will potentially get both of you out of your comfort zones and in turn, lead to a stronger bond.
