In the northernmost part of Greece, stands its biggest island: the mythical Crete. With its amazing natural beauty and thousands of years of history, you will fall in love with this place. In Chania, you will enjoy the best of everything. Elegant villas, pulsating bars and traditional restaurants, significant cultural sites – you will never run out of things to see and do. Or you can just spend your days soaking up the sun on one of the island’s beaches, such as the world-famous 3km-long white sand beach of Falasarna. There’s nothing wrong with that.

MILOS

The island of Aphrodite, the place where the Venus de Milo (Aphrodite of Milos) statue was found, is the most exotic of all Greek islands. It is called the Island of Lovers because it is so romantic. Yellow, orange, red and dazzling white rock formations make each one of its beaches unique. Milos’ turquoise waters will mesmerize you and form the perfect backdrop for your most romantic moments. Don’t forget to share a piece of a rich chocolate pie, one of the island’s specialities.

ZAKYNTHOS (ZANTE)

Zakynthos is for you if you like the combination of green nature and blue waters. The island has got an impressive nightlife, but also some of the longest beaches you can find. Take a small boat trip and visit the astonishing, secluded beach of Navagio. And if you like your wine, Zakynthos produces loads. Drink a glass or two in one of the island bars, enjoying the beautiful panorama of Zante town.

SPETSES

Last but not least, a destination that’s closer to Athens for those wishing to combine a visit to the capital with a romantic getaway. Spetses is only 2 hours away from the capital. This is one of the most aristocratic and romantic islands in Greece. Cars are forbidden here, amplifying the romance factor.  Take an evening ride in one of the horse and buggies that still exist on the island, passing the picturesque Old Port and marveling at the island’s traditional architecture. Can you think of anything more romantic?

Types Of Women To Avoid At All Costs

If your friends are tired of hearing you whine about not meeting the right girl, maybe it’s time to think about your choices so far. It may be that the type of woman you’re after actually belongs to one of the types of women to avoid.

So, What Are The Types Of Women To Avoid?

While the old saying “different strokes for different folks” may hold true, there are some kinds of women you should really steer clear of if you want a happy, fulfilling personal life.

Mrs Know-It-All. Don’t ever think you can outsmart this one. Where you have been, she has been before you. What you don’t know, she surely does. And if she doesn’t, she will still pretend that she does. This type of woman is dying for an opportunity to ridicule you in front of your friends (say, in a harmless Trivial Pursuit round) and lower your self-esteem. Just leave.

Mrs Toxic. She has a problem for all your solutions. For example, she is bound to find all the flaws in the holiday hotel you booked. And the flight there. And the restaurant you dine after your swim. And the holiday destination itself. Don’t bother; she will only make you miserable.

Mrs Mommy’s Daughter. Typically, this type of woman still lives with her mother. She is her best friend with whom she talks on the phone all day, messages a hundred times when you are out and seeks confirmation for every little thing. Let her spend more time with her mum. In fact, let her spend it all with her. Too much hassle.

Mrs Unmotivated. This is the kind of woman who finds no interest in anything. You won’t ever see her excited about a single thing. Forget about going for walks, weekend escapes or any kind of activities you may have in mind. Prepare yourself for endless hours on the couch, watching TV and being bored to death.

Mrs Drama Queen. You may lose your job, your dog may die and your house may catch fire, and still it will be all about the pain she felt when her nail broke. Not ready to face more drama than a Broadway theater? Then run for the hills. This one’s not for you.

These are 5 types of women to avoid, but fortunately, there are much better options out there. Visit our site and get to meet some of them or get more relationship advice here.

AnastasiaDate: What You Should Know About Woman’s Brain

What is the one aspect of courtship, dating or relationships that men fail at most of the time? Can you guess what the answer is? When you’re dating a woman, with whom you are smitten, you usually attempt to understand her so you’ll know how to make your blossoming relationship better. But, and this is the answer to the question earlier, you can never fully understand how a woman’s brain works because women are complex creatures. Do you agree that no matter how hard you try you can never understand women? Well, we at AnastasiaDate don’t want you to be in the dark, so we’ve compiled a short list of the basics of how a woman’s mind works.

AnastasiaDate: The Basics Of How A Woman’s Mind Works

We’re going to give you a bit of a disclaimer before we start the list because, and this is worth repeating, a woman’s brain or a woman’s thoughts cannot be deciphered. But, we can always try to understand the ladies in our lives by understanding the basics of how their minds work:

1. Cycle-Based

You know the kind of cycle we’re talking about, right? We’re all too familiar with the dreaded PMS but what we men don’t know is that women are affected by their cycle every day of the month. It is all because their hormone levels change at specific days. These hormonal changes will affect your lady’s mood, outlook and energy level.

2. A Woman’s Intuition Is Innate

You might have thought it weird that your mum or your girlfriend knew exactly what you were planning to do without even telling them. This is because women are naturally intuitive. Contrary to what most men think, women do not have the ability to read minds, but they do have the natural skill of reading non-verbal cues very well. Have you ever wondered how women deal with an infant’s need when an infant can’t even say a single word?

3. Her Brain Processes Stress And Pain Differently

What do you do when you feel stressed or in pain? The way you cope with these two feelings will be very different from the way women cope with stress and pain. A woman is more sensitive to the two. The women in your life will feel and perceive stress in a different way so it’s best not to tell them that they are overreacting.

The three items on AnastasiaDate’s list may seem simple but believe us when we say that there is more to a woman’s brain than these three. This is just the tip of the iceberg.
