In this day and age, it is sad to see people still having difficulty accepting different cultures.
First dates are the pinnacle of the start of a relationship. They are either a painful shortcut to the end, or the opening to a great beginning. This also means that during the first date there is a lot of stress, anxiety, and awkwardness hanging in the air. A great way of reducing this tension as much as possible is by picking the right place or activity to do for the first date.
A "catfish" is defined as a person creating a false online identity; false pictures, false profile. There is a difference between a fake profile and a catfish though. Many marketers use fake profiles to brandish "likes," "shares," "retweets," etc., and generally, a fake profile won’t reach out to anyone. But a catfish is someone who uses that fake persona to either sell a service (these conversations are usually initiated by "bots," or programs with pre-programmed messages, to a real user) or a real person, essentially present themselves falsely to garner attention, friends or romantic relationships in an internet setting.
We all like to feel the occasional sense of control. This feeling rises in a multitude of scenarios, such as the relationship between a mother and her child, an employer and his status of superiority over his employees, or even being the decision-maker in a friend group. However, people don’t commonly analyse the importance of these encounters or grasps of power in our everyday life, which is where I believe people make their initial fundamental mistake in the surge for power.
We've all been there at one point: your boyfriend chats with another girl, they exchange phone numbers, they spend time together occasionally and are connected on social media. You may or may not know their history as friends (i.e. if they were exes, have mutual friends, or if they went to school together), but what you do know is that it makes you feel a little bit uncomfortable. It's warranted of course: after all, you're the girlfriend. But not all of these kinds of friendships are serious matters that you need to worry about, and it can be difficult to tell which is which without being too intrusive. Here are 10 questions you can ask yourself to determine if you should take a deep breath and relax, or if you should think about having a serious talk with your boyfriend.
With the rise of social media comes the inevitable need to showcase our social status as often as we can. The internet has now made it an easy place to brag, complain and share our lives, with apps like Snapchat that make it simple to snap a photo and let all your friends know you had lasagna for dinner and have it disappear in 24 hours.
We've all been there before: you answered the questions, wrote a little bit about yourself in the profile section, posted it online with the cutest selfie you could find, and despite the vast amount of lonely emotions that are swimming in your chest, you're debating about whether or not it might be a good idea to reply to smooth_operator69.The good news is that if online dating doesn't seem to be working for you just yet, you're not alone. More than one-third of all people who use online dating sites have never actually gone on a date with someone they met online. But if that means that two-thirds of online daters are in fact, getting dates and going out with other single online daters, then why isn't your photo of your adorable chihuahua not bringing in more suitable candidates who like dogs into your DMs?! The reality is: people are out looking, and if you’re single, the dating market is at its prime. The question is: do you have a dating profile that’s up for the challenge? Here are some tips on how to create the perfect online dating profile:
As the fireworks of the new year are sparked and champagne bottles are popped, you can almost hear the rustling of grocery store shelves being switched to Valentine’s Day decor. Forget the fact that the holiday is almost a month and a half away, because it wouldn’t be "consumeristic" America if not for the over-promotion of holidays. With this loving season upon us, now is no better time than to take a closer look at the definition of Valentine’s Day:
When you first meet someone and fall in love, romance is new and exciting. You eat, sleep, and breathe romance. You are constantly thinking of the next romantic gesture to surprise your partner with. It's all about roses, candlelit dinners, and giving each other gifts to show how you feel.
Every year, college students and recent grads find themselves struggling to celebrate Valentine's Day. With the costs of text books rising with no end in sight and paying off student loans, it's amazing we're even able to buy ourselves a sandwich, never mind buy a gift that accurately captures how we feel about a loved one. So what do we do instead?
It all starts out with a good character. When I say that, I don’t mean a morally good character. Bad people tend to be crowdpleasers as long as there is a tragic story to why they went bad, without a backstory as such the character is just an mean person, which is alright as long as, in the end, their love interest changes that part of them. The bad character has to get morals and realize that they should be good because, suddenly, it all makes sense—the only thing in their life missing was LOVE.
