Dating Rules You Must Forget Right Away

In our (sometimes) desperate desire to find our significant other, we turn to a number of experts for the right advice on how to win over our object of desire. However, almost nothing in life is black and white, and the same goes for the way we should deal with romance and dating. Here are some dating rules you need to stop following blindly.

Why These Common Dating Rules Don’t Work

We don’t suggest that you shouldn’t listen to any kind of advice, but here are some reasons why some dating rules may actually be dating myths.

Rule 1. You shouldn’t discuss any sort of serious topics on your dates. While there is some sense to this piece of advice, it should just be followed on the first, maybe even second, date. You may not want to go into a heavy conversation about politics or religion from the word go, but keeping conversations trivial for longer than that is simply wrong. If you are interested in a serious relationship, you need to know that you and your date are on the same page regarding some core issues, at least. read more

Common Myths Dispelled: Why Dating After 50 Can Be Super Fun

In a society that is so obsessed with youth, it is easy to forget that today’s 50-year-olds are worlds apart from what quinquagenarians were like just a few decades ago. Perhaps now is a good time to debunk some of the false myths related to dating after 50.

The Myths And The Truth About Dating After 50

Let’s take a look at the most widespread myths regarding middle-aged people dating, as we explain why each one of them is false.

Myth #1: 50-year-olds don’t have enough energy to date. While this may have been true a few decades ago, in actual fact things are very different today. Today people in their 50s have great health, they enjoy a high standard of living and have a completely different lifestyle compared to that of decades ago. People in their 50s are now strong, healthy and full of beans. read more

Why Is Unrequited Love So Hard To Overcome?

Anyone who claims not to have suffered the pains of unrequited love is either closer to 14 than to 40 or lying. Most of us have been through this upsetting situation where the person we are after is simply unavailable. What makes this kind of love so difficult to get over, though?

This Is Why Unrequited Love Is So Addictive

If you rationalize it, why would anyone want someone they can’t have? In an ideal world, it would not even cross our minds to pursue people who are emotionally or otherwise unavailable. Why, then, do we cling on to them like a moth to a flame?

The truth of the matter is that we don’t consciously choose who we fall in love with. Unreciprocated love may be a situation where we love someone who is already in a relationship, so can’t return the feeling even if she wanted to or just someone who doesn’t feel the same way about us. Either way, it hurts. read more

There IS A Way: Here’s How To Win Arguments With Your Girl

Love’s not a competition, but it’s nice to win sometimes. When the first, “honeymoon” phase of the relationship – when all is rosy and neither of you is flawed in any way – passes, dark clouds will start to appear and you will slowly start bickering occasionally. This is how to win arguments with her every time (almost).

How To Win Arguments And Cut Your Losses

It’s a little childish to expect to win every single fight, but it’s also kind of pathetic to lose them all too. If you feel you’re in the right, this is how to deal with an argument.

Choose Your Battles Wisely

First of all, some issues can be resolved without an argument. Minor things can be discussed in a very relaxed fashion and some are not even worth discussing at length. Choose what you ignite an argument about because too much arguing can take a serious toll on a relationship. Not to mention that it’s a waste of precious energy. read more
