Do Blind Dates Work?

Many successful relationships and marriages are the results of a blind date, proving that they can work. To make a blind date successful you need to have the right attitude towards them. If you go on a blind date, or any date, with the attitude of failure, then the date will more than likely fail. Your outlook plays a large part in making a blind date work.

The main difference between a blind date and a regular date is the “finding a date” process. Some people struggle with finding a date and having one arranged for you to save you from doing so. Whether you arrange a date yourself with someone you have just met, arrange to meet someone you have met via an online dating service, or allow a friend to arrange a date for you, the overall success of the date can be the same. Having a successful date is all about having a connection with someone, therefore how the date was set up is often irrelevant; you can’t always tell if there will be a connection with someone until you spent some quality time with them.

If you are pressurised into a blind date and aren’t enthusiastic about it, then there is a great chance that it will fail, but that can be applied to any date, not just a blind date. It is down to each individual to decide whether a blind date is for them. People are quick to make a judgment without even thinking about the positive side to them. If someone you know has arranged a date for you then there is a chance you will like the person they have set you up with. Your friend should know your likes and dislikes when it comes to dating, therefore they should arrange a … READ MORE ...

How Do You Stay in Shape in a Relationship?

The joy of being in love is a sublime feeling. You always want to do everything right for your partner and seek to protect their interest at any cost. In a relationship, be it marriage or courtship, you learn the power of compromise and sacrifice, all of which are enabled due to the feeling called love.

Unfortunately, many relationships go down the drain and break up because of the parties’ inability to rekindle the old flame of love they once shared. There are so many reasons that could cause the breakdown of a relationship, and they are all valid reasons. These reasons include a breakdown in communication, frequent fighting, cheating, and, though this may sound odd, weight issues. A partner becomes frustrated when they are not comfortable with your weight, talks to you about it, and still does not see any effort to change or reduce it.

If your partner has issues with your weight, and you intend to make him feel more comfortable, you try out these tips to make you stay in shape;

Eat well, but not too much

Everyone has a different stomach capacity for food—excess food is bad for the body as it stores up as fat. You should eat to satisfy yourself, but do not at any time overeat. Let your eating be moderate and temperate. You should also make sure to eat healthy foods and take healthy drinks.

Eat at home

Junks are fast becoming a trend in many homes, especially if both parties are working. You leave for work very early and come back very late, so there is no time to cook. Therefore, you are left with the option of buying junks to keep the body working. This is a bad habit and is sure to increase your weight … READ MORE ...

Blind Date – How Much Do Looks, Matter?

Did you catch the ABC Network’s new dating reality show? Dating in the Dark. Three men. Three women. A dark room where no one can see anyone else.

They talk in the dark. Touch in the dark. Laugh and even make out in the dark. Back in the light, in their female-only and male-only groups, they talk about their experiences. They sniff each others’ clothes. A sketch artist even draws a picture based upon what they THINK the person they are “attracted” to looks like.

Relationship experts “pick” who each person should be with based upon personality, compatibility, and other aspects that make for successful mating. Remarkably, the three guys and three gals chose those matches in the dark anyway. Everyone gets along… really, really well. There are chemistry and much talk, giggling, and anticipation about what their match looks like.

Toward the end of the show comes the truth. Each “couple” gets in the darkroom and very slowly, the light turns up to reveal the male to the female, just for a few seconds. The light turns back down. Then the light over the female turns up for a few seconds revealing her to the guy.

So, how does this end? Well, there are now three “couples.” But now that they have seen each other, they get to decide if they want to continue seeing each other or walk away.

First, one guy goes to the balcony of the house and waits to see if the woman he has connected with comes out. If she does, they have whisked away in a silver Bentley. If not, she packs her bags and walks away from the house. Carless. Down a steep heel with her suitcase, wearing high heels no less.

The first couple continued by choosing each other after the … READ MORE ...
