In this day and age, it's hard and almost a bit ridiculous to believe that everyone's "soulmate" would live just a few miles away. The world is a huge place, flooded with so many kinds of people who you have yet to meet but one way to do that is through the internet! With various forms of social media, including dating apps, you can come across people who may live across the state, country, or even world! You may just meet someone and fall in love. Although, when it comes to the distance, what is there to do? Now, as someone who has been in a long distance relationship, it is hard and there is nothing that will change that fact. However, there are things you can to do that ease the heartache of being away from the person you love most and make it work!
Love is a complicated phenomenon. Being in love can be both the easiest and the hardest thing you'll ever have in your life.
If you’re somewhat new to the singles scene, you may have noticed that everyone seems to be swiping, not dating. Welcome to the new swipe happy dating culture! I’ve been divorced for more than a decade now, and I’m still swiping left when I should’ve swiped right…or was it the other way around? Anyhow, once something takes hold and becomes popular, you may as well embrace it! After all, these dating apps aren’t going anywhere. In fact, new ones keep popping up every day. So, let’s embrace change and learn how to navigate it, shall we?
As sex gets easier to find, real love gets harder to find. Our current swipe happy culture has made finding a true connection with another human being akin to finding a needle in a haystack. Although it may seem impossible, I encourage you to never give up! Stick with this process until you do find that special someone. It is, after all, totally worth the wait.
I'll start from the very beginning; I had just gotten out of one abusive relationship, only to go into a very short-lived one with a man who didn't actually want to be with me like he had said. So I went on vacation with my family, and not even a few days later of coming back from California I got a match on Tinder. And I'd only just started using Tinder, it wasn't really something I was super into. And if I hadn't found a guy that I liked soon, I was going to delete the app and just assume I was going to be alone forever.
As I write these words, the dating world gets more confusing by the minute. At times I myself think about throwing in the towel, but then I remember that that goes against everything I believe about love. It’s simple: Whether you think you can, or think you can’t, either way, you are right. This mindset is especially important when it comes to finding love.
We all have times where we just don't see eye to eye with someone. And no, I'm not talking literally; I'm talking about communicating. Have you ever been in an argument and wish you hadn't said something? Or have you been hurt by something someone said, or didn't say? Well, these are examples of times when you're not properly communicating and probably should adjust your methods. Trust me it's better for everyone if you just avoid doing these things while communicating.
For those of you who have been religiously reading my column for the past three years (thank you!), you may have noticed my cynical turn for the worst. Even us so called dating “experts” are pained to see the slow strangulation and subsequent death of real romance and old school courtship. It leaves me scratching my head and wondering what’s going on with the world these days.
Chemistry is defined as a strong attraction between two people. But when asked to explain the how and why of sexual attraction, many are left scratching their heads. One thing I know for sure is that sexual chemistry is based on more than looks alone. That’s just one tiny part of the equation. There’s also the way the other person smells. The two of you could have a spiritual connection, possibly from living past lives together. Also, attraction is very strong when two people have karmic patterns that need to be worked out (or these patterns will keep repeating). I truly believe that two people are drawn together in order to fulfill a special purpose, learn lessons about themselves or about life, or to figure out what it is they desire in a mate.
Dating in the modern world is getting super confusing and chaotic. With all these online dating sites and apps, people tend to get a misconstrued view of the world and begin to think that there are millions of options. However, nothing could be farther from the truth. While there are plenty of single people out there, meeting someone you truly connect with is a rare and precious thing.
I think it’s safe to say that everyone loves orgasms. It’s one thing you can never have too much of! Let’s not disregard the myriad of health benefits of having a Big O: improved circulation, hormones regulated, mood improvement from extra endorphins, immune system boost, reduction of stress from the rush of oxytocin…should I keep going? In short, life is better when you’re having orgasms!
Almost everyone has a horror story of a blind date gone awry. But, with the explosion of social media, are any dates really blind anymore? Let’s be realistic, the internet has changed everything, including the dating game. But even though we may have caught a glimpse of our prospective date, it still doesn’t quell our fears or stop us from being nervous meeting someone for the first time! But blind dates don’t have to be from hell…
