Friends or Lovers? How To Know If This Is Love

Online dating has proved to be successful for you. You have found the woman you seemingly go well with even though you are very far apart. Online dating has found you the woman who you share everyday experiences and memories with, but how do you determine if the feeling is that of friendship or is it already true love?

Are you both under the spell of the temporary attraction or are you both having deeper feelings for each other? Here are some important ways that would help you decide if she is the perfect mate that you have been looking for all your life:

1. A good woman to spend the rest of your life with would be the one most in line with your perspective in life. Although both of you do not have the same interests, both of you share a stable communication pattern that bridges the gap. Good signs of communication in a relationship include being totally honest with each other, knowing each others interest and beliefs, sharing opinions about life’s important issues (such as budget finances, life endeavors, family matters as well as favorite stuff).

When dating, be aware of shallow communication exchange such that she is not quite interested with your activities or your life. The dating relationship is definitely not going to last when the communication between the two of you is blocked due to hidden anger and resentment as well as feelings that are not shared with each other.

2. Love is the central part that holds a serious relationship together. While you are dating, you will know that the relationship is geared towards love when in times of distress and troubles she is always there for you, supporting you and doing what she can to get you out of your bad situation. Love is present in dating when both of you sacrifice for each other, make each other happy, and treat each other as special friends who share the same emotional, physical and mental qualities.

Dating should be ended when you feel that she mysteriously gets sick or isn’t around when you are troubled or when she seems to be eyeing other guys that she could date after wards. When the woman you are dating has already lied to you about her whereabouts, is giving you the cold shoulder, not being genuine with you or has proven to be promiscuous then you should cut relations with her to prevent further damage on your male pride.

3. When it comes to dating, respect is one of the fundamental virtues that lead both to a happy and successful relationship. Your dating partner may be your perfect mate when you feel that both of you accept each others difference and respect your own unique identity. Respect is the foundation of trust and without it, a dating relationship is spoiled by suspicion and hatred.

The dating relationship is good whenever both of you know that each other can commit faults and still accept the imperfections and errors. While dating an impeccable support system can lead you to foster each others unique identity and build a more loving relationship with each other. Taking time to listen to each others thoughts while dating will make you lovers and friends at the same time.

A dating advice for men is to let go of women who criticize you in front of other people, who controls your time and stops you from engaging in your interests or friends, who creates standards for your personality that doesn’t seem the real you anymore and one who never forgives or forgets any mistake that you have done.

Now that you know the standards of a loving relationship, you can now determine if your date is worth pursuing or you should search for another. Anyhow, these are just guidelines so you could be warned and led to a good and loving dating relationship.

Surviving The Dating Jungle – Tips for Men

Dating does not go without rules. Dating is like a jungle out there and to keep yourself safe, sound and on top of the game, you must be aware of the dance of the dating forest. For you to be on top of the line when it comes to dating, you must prepare and incorporate clever and witty tricks for you to find the perfect match. Women are unfortunately born with the dating instinct and are far ahead of men, so we need to ensure that we are not trampled along the battle.
Here are the general rules when dating:
1. Best dressers are always attractive for females. Women love men who know how to use clothing to enhance their physical attributes. Always ensure that you wear clean socks and shoes and wear clothes that are spotless and fits you well. Go with the current fashion trends but be sublime about it. Show that you know how to take good care of yourself so she would feel secure and proud when you are with her.
2. Hygiene is a major check with women. Rugged style are good for awfully handsome men, yet a lot of women prefer clean-cut males who smell good and look good. Check your hair if it is growing everywhere and don’t forget to shave. Go to your favorite barber shop and get a full service so you can get primed up for your dating escapades.
3. Make sure you have a job or career. Responsibility, wit, and ambition attract serious and perfect women. To find a great woman, you must be able to level with them. Strolling along as a skate teacher will land you less than perfect women. Change your lifestyle first and get a career that will help you progress along life. Progressive and successful women do not have time for jobless men or those who have no ambition at all. Get a good plan for yourself so you can be able to take your classy woman out to a romantic out of the country date.

4. Get updated and show that you care about what is happening in the world. Don’t get too focused on yourself, be aware of local situations and national events. Women love to have significant conversations with men and if you can hold one that can both help you become great citizens then you will have a greater success in dating. Women appreciate smart and knowledgeable men.

5. Lastly, don’t anticipate sex when dating for the first time. Serious relationships start from a stable friendship and then onwards. If your purpose is plainly on having sex, then go find yourself a promiscuous woman they are available everywhere. However, if your goal is to catch a prized woman then never go for a girl who engages in a sexual act with you on the first date. Show the woman that you respect her decisions and that you will patiently wait for her. This will result into a stronger bond between you and your date.

These are just 5 of the numerous rules in the dating game. Don’t forget about them when you talk to your date so you would get a better chance in having a cozy night. Good luck!

Grin and save the leave the pouty shots at the dustbin.

2. Dress Casually – formal pictures are usually a turn off. Well, that tux shot from the wedding you attended might be alright but try not to post a picture with you in a strict corporate outfit.

It is best to post shots of you doing some type of sport or having fun on a night out.

3. Avoid Too-Hot Shots – as you’ve probably heard, there is a line between sexy and slutty. Don’t post “exotic” pictures of yourself unless it is your goal to find singles with naughtiness in mind.

Online Dating Tips for Men: Which Are You – the Turtle, the Rabbit, or the Fox?

online dating site

For experts in online dating, the challenge is not how to improve your free dating site profile, but how to make the transition from meeting someone on the internet and interacting with them for real. This phase can make or great a relationship. It is crucial to take note that balance should be maintained. On one hand, you don’t want to seem aggressive. But on the other, you don’t want to look too desperate either.

Aggression can be a good thing depending on the level of attraction between you and your date. If she is sending you good vibes then making a move is usually a good idea. Desperation is never good though. You might look needy, out of control, or a loser. And if you have the bad luck of meeting a gold-digger, it is possible that she might take advantage of you as well. So how can you strike the right balance?

We have used the analogy of the turtle, rabbit, and the fox to help you out. What fox? Read on.

Turtle – the approach of the turtle is, obviously, very slow. You spend too much time exchanging emails, chatting over messenger, and talking on the phone. This online dating approach is not necessarily bad but the main downside is that you don’t get to see each other physically to find out if there is real chemistry. And there might be another guy that’s trying to meet up with your online date. As in the story, the rabbit might win the race.

Rabbit – the rabbit is the exact opposite of the turtle. These guys want to meet ASAP, on the same day if possible. This approach works best when you are talking to spontaneous women who are willing to meet you. “Rabbits” also have a lot of luck with women craving for some exciting adventures in their lives. But like the turtle, there are disadvantages to this tactic. There might not be a connection between the two of you at all; it is also possible that the woman you meet through online dating is emotionally imbalanced.

Fox – fortunately, there is a middle ground between the turtle and rabbit. That is, once you have a mutual connection from free dating sites, you should take one step further. Also, be smart about the place where the two of you will meet. Choose a comfortable spot that isn’t your home turf or hers.
