There is no denying that there are a lot of dating applications right now, and so you may be curious as to what they are all about. Some are more in-depth than others so it might be that you want to work out what it is you want from them. Whether you just fancy swiping left or right, or fancy doing personality tests to be matched with potential suitors there is an application for every possibility. Try a few and see how you get on. 

Chat lines could help

If you like to talk then why not consider a chat line option instead. This could be another way to grow your confidence in the world of talking to new people and eventually having a relationship in the future. Whether it is gay date numbers you want, or finding people that share similar interests, there is bound to be somehting that suit the stage you are at with this new stage of your life. 

 

Zoom and skype are excellent virtual dating options

Sometimes the pressure of a face to face meeting can be too much. So you might want to think about another alternative. There has been a huge rise in the world of virtual dating and this can give you the opportunity to talk to someone face to face without leaving the comfort of your home. This could suit you if you are interested in getting to know somebody first before making big commitments of meals out. 

Really get to know someone on calls and text

Dating doesn’t always have to be done face to face. You could consider taking time to enjoy phone calls and text conversations first as you get to know someone. The chances are you may be more careful as you approach a new relationship, which is understandable. So having conversations over the phone or on text could help you to feel more at ease with meeting someone eventually. 

The old fashioned correspondence with a modern twist

Last of all, many years ago, there was the only option of writing to potential love interests and getting to know them that way. You could put a modern twist on this and reignite the love letter through email. Again it gives you a chance to get to know someone and also share things in your own words without the pressure. 

Let’s hope these tips help you to move forward with your relationship status.

The Best On and Off-Screen Kisses for International Kissing Day

by

In case you haven’t already heard, today is international kissing day. That’s right, there is a day dedicated to celebrating kissing. A quick Google search will yield several articles about this common show of affection and why it is significant. This international recognition began in 2006 and since then, people take July 6th to appreciate their significant other, their children, and their family with the simple, but meaningful gesture. Whether you’re appreciating a loved one or the mere connection that we all share as human beings, it’s important to remember that we all need a little love in our lives. To celebrate today, let’s take a look at some of the best on and off-screen kisses.

International Kissing Day: Some of the Best On-Screen Kisses

Alfred Hitchcock’s “Notorious”

This one is for the film buffs out there who know their classic cinema. Or for those of you who don’t, here’s why this scene is so effective. The famous director, Alfred Hitchcock, found a way around the 1940s film Production Code’s ban on lengthy kisses. At the time, on-screen kisses weren’t supposed to last longer than three seconds. Hitchcock cleverly bent the rules by creating a two-and-a-half-minute kissing scene. Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman didn’t actually break that three-second lip-lock. Instead, they kissed for three seconds, took breaks to deliver lines, and then began kissing again. It was utterly genius and seamlessly executed. If you haven’t seen this kissing scene, you may be underestimating the power of the on-screen kiss.

Victor Fleming’s “Gone with the Wind”

Again, it’s another classic, but come on, who can deny the chemistry between Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler? The film, based on Margaret Mitchell’s novel of the same name, is set in the backdrop of the American Civil War. O’Hara and Butler are perhaps one of the most notoriously tumultuous couples to ever grace the silver screen.

“Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back” Han and Leia’s Kiss

This kiss is pretty epic and it’s not just because it’s from a Star Wars film. The chemistry between Han and Leia is something that we all feel, thanks to Harrison Ford and the late Carrie Fisher’s portrayals. Han and Leia are a perfectly relatable couple and that’s what makes the payoff so great.

Everyone has seen this photograph. Celebrating the end of WWII, the sailor was captured mid-kiss with a nurse. All thanks to a well-timed photographer and incredibly high emotions, this photograph is probably one of the most reenacted poses for modern-day couples photos.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Reportedly Trying to Conceive Royal Baby

by

According to recent reports, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are trying to conceive their first child.  A “source” close to Markle revealed to US Weekly that the newly minted Duke and Duchess of Sussex want to start a family right away, and that their honeymoon might be the perfect time for the couple to do just that.  Before the two even tied the knot, royal spectators believed a new royal baby would be imminent due to Markle’s age and her shared glances with Harry during the royal wedding whenever children were mentioned. In fact, during an official royal visit to Northern Ireland in March, Prince Harry remarked that him and Markle “might need the whole lot soon” when shown baby products.

If Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are indeed trying for a baby, it will be the fourth grandchild of the late Princess Diana, joining Prince William and Kate Middleton’s three children.  However, the likelihood that their child would ever touch the crown is low.  After the birth of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s third child, Prince Louis, Prince Harry was bumped from fifth to sixth in line to the throne, meaning that any child born to him and Markle will not be in the immediate line of succession.  They will not be styled as “Prince” or “Princess” either.  Rather, they will be known as “Lord” or “Lady.”

Royal baby watchers, be on the lookout!

Competition among Women: Is She Nasty or Just Being Natural?

by

For centuries, women have been given the unfortunate stereotype of being mean, catty and competitive with each other, while men are thought to be more laid back when interacting with other men. Though this is almost certainly true in specific, individual incidents, this reputation doesn’t actually make sense in the grand scheme of things considering women have been scientifically proven to be less competitive than men. So, how can this stereotype be explained?

According to Lynn Margolies Ph.D. at Psych Central, adults tend to encourage competition among boys but try to avoid creating competitive atmospheres for girls. It’s thought that as males grow up, competition in the form of sports, games and debates enables them to relate to each other, create bonds and experience healthy male friendships. Having experienced this from an early age, men tend to be far more comfortable in competitive situations than women, and even regard winning as a priority. Plus, they rarely feel bad for those who have lost but still manage to continue friendships without any lasting effects following competition.
Conversely, women are encouraged to form friendships as young children in other ways that rarely involve competition according to Margolies. If anything, competitive spirit in females is hidden so that nobody feels intimidated or less-than, which in turn means that it cannot be expressed in a healthy, positive way. Instead, Margolies suggests that it remains within, turning into envy and a guilty desire for other women to fail. Competitive spirit becomes a sign of insecurities and may come out as hostility, fear and shame of one’s own success.


On the other hand, less naturally competitive women may even self-sabotage in order to avoid becoming the subject of others’ resentment or to ensure another female friend is protected. For instance, if a female friend is eating unhealthy she may join them so their companion doesn’t feel alone or so that no one views them as superior. Ultimately, women are more inclined towards caring for others emotionally and so for a lot of women, the act of making anyone else feel inferior is avoided.
Of course, there are women who compete in various competitions and sports. There are hundreds of female athletes from around the world, many of whom have managed to rise above feelings of disdain or pity for their rivals. Still, these women do occasionally have to deal with judgement from others. For example, athlete Jenny Thompson posed half-nude for Sports Illustrated and was instantly judged as too sexual, too proud, too muscular, too stuck up, too mannish. The criticisms were endless, and so Thompson had to abandon being easily accepted by others in exchange for living her own life and competing. An undeniably brave move, to be sure.
Arguably, women who compete within male-dominated arenas have an even more difficult time. For centuries, poker, for instance, has been regarded as a man’s sport, so when a few courageous women entered the poker world, there was a lot of judgement. Poker pro Vanessa Selbst has expressed her opinions on how different genders are expected to compete in poker on numerous occasions, often mentioning that women are supposed to be demure while men are allowed to be aggressive. Like in athletics, many women who wish to compete in poker must cut ties to any need to be accepted, and must instead be fully committed to the game. 
So, how can women begin feeling more comfortable in competitive situations?

Confidence is Key

Firstly, it is important to know that confidence is key. When a woman has confidence, she will not be susceptible to feelings of vulnerability, nor will she feel the need to threaten other women. Instead, she will face success without being intimidated and will help her fellow women climb to the top with her. The confident woman knows that she has everything she needs to succeed, and will encourage her allies to do the same.

Second Place is Okay

Of course, competition means that not everyone can win and some will have to accept defeat. Instead of feeling guilty, it’s time to learn the value of coming in second or even third. Take professional poker, for example, in each round and tournament there will be just one winner and while nobody particularly likes losing, pros like Phil Hellmuth and Jay Farber who are renowned for placing second continue to strive for success. After all, if they had come first what would there be for them to aim for? Who would they aim to emulate?

Individual yet Emotional

All too often, women tend to flock together, relying on each other for emotional support. However, it is entirely possible to be autonomous while remaining emotionally reliable, empathetic and caring. Instead of being overprotective, it’s better to instill feelings of empowerment, individuality and strength in female friends
Female friendships are a beautiful thing that needn’t be threatened by competition, especially since the results have no impact on the fiber of which someone is an individual or what a friendship means. That’s our take anyway; let us know what you think about competition among women in the comments below.

When It’s Time To Leave A Relationship

by

broken heart photoToxic relationships aren’t good for anyone. They’re bad for so many reasons, whether you’re just arguing non-stop, or if things have progressed to a stage which can actually be considered dangerous and even abusive. Unfortunately, none of us are immune to these types of situations.  Relationships can start out really well, but before you know it, they can go terribly wrong, with either one or both parties to blame. It doesn’t matter whether you’re smart, whether you’re a man or a woman, or anything else;  we can all be victims to negative situations in the name of love.

That being said, we can take steps to protect ourselves from toxic relationships.  Sometimes we get caught in a cycle which feels impossible to break, and we’re too deeply traumatized that we don’t even have the strength to leave. Other times, we don’t even recognize that there is anything wrong – situations can become so normal that we’re unable to see the truth. When one partner is controlling, overly jealous, threatening or has bad habits that affect the happiness of the other, then it’s time to consider other options as you don’t have to put up with this.  Even though you might tell yourself that the arguments aren’t even over anything big you need to ask yourself… is anything really going to change?

Us mere mortals are not alone. Plenty of people who are rich and even celebrities find themselves in bad relationships all the time, proving that these types of situations can happen to anyone. Take Rihanna’s ill-fated relationship with Chris Brown in 2009. The whole traumatic ordeal was widely publicized after he was physically violent to her in an altercation.  Nobody should have to go through that, especially when you feel that your relationship is based upon love.

Of course, not all toxic relationships involve violence. They can be equally damaging through verbal abuse or even negative situations which sometimes allow the relationship to end in a natural way. Famous people like ​Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, and Amy Winehouse and her partner Blake were in relationships filled rife with drug abuse.  As you know, this often unfortunately ends in tragedy, as in the case of Cobain and Winehouse, who both passed away at 27.

Emotional abuse is also a huge problem. Eminem has been accused of perpetuating such negativity, due to songs containing murder threats to his partner. (Eminem has several nasty songs about his ex, Kim). The thing we have to remember is that famous people who are bad in relationships are just part of a much larger problem.  We often forget the bad things they say and do towards their partners – their fame overshadows behavior that’s beyond what should be acceptable.

Abuse should never be tolerated. Toxic relationships often extend beyond the remit of simply ‘private matters’, and often the victims of such situations need to be listened to and believed.

Everyone’s situation can vary in severity, but if it’s not good for you, it’s okay to admit it. Leaving someone you love (but who also hurts you) can be one of the hardest and most complicated things in the world. However, you deserve to be happy. We promise!

Cuffing Season Chronicles

by

Entertainment Copy Editor Emilio Giron writes a series of Cuffing Season Chronicles from two fictional, though alarmingly accurate perspectives. Alone and fatefully seeking love in each other, the love life of these two characters are chronicled during the winter months. This short and fictional story is a follow-up to “The End of Cuffing Season.”

Month 1

I wasn’t looking for anything or anyone—I was just trying to do me. You know? I was trying to be studious, or something like that. Hard-working. Nothing else mattered until ol’ girl walked by, looking like she was smuggling pillows underneath a tight skirt. I mean, it was enough to provoke a statue.That’s distraction! That’s a paralyzing thing.

*

We met at a mixer held at Restrepo’s apartment on Halloween. Everything we talked about was unimportant and forgettable. I’d like to think all we remembered was how we made each other feel… Anyway, it was about that time: the weather was changing, the darkness and cold in me spread like the creeping advent of autumn, and I was losing light with each passing day. My skin went from a sun-kissed olive cream to something lighter, pale really, a bitten complexion; and a pair of vampiric fangs were the only things I failed to develop.

I could tell you how Restrepo hooked me up, but it’d be factually untrue; and possibly, technically, true. Restrepo told me So-and-so was feeling me, and though she was a dusty catch, she was still a catch; but as I fished, if you follow me, things didn’t pan out as expected. My third-eye peeped the auras of a worthier prospect, and as the sound of So-and-so’s voice became inaudible, I focused my attention on the other visage, who’s glow pierced the huddle of dancing shadows.

She was direct, a brisk, cold direct, warming up only when she wasn’t repeatedly asking me if I was at the party with anyone else. She told me her name is Soraya and how she heard things about me, and how she let slip to the far reaches of my circle of friends that she had her eye on me for some time. I didn’t believe her, but I was impressed—she was pulling me in. Later, we went to her place. She drove us in her brand-new Mercedes-Benz, that I was goddamn sure wasn’t hers. The windows were tinted and the seats reclined to sexual levels. We were creeping. Her place was far, but she drove quickly, craning her neck around every street corner before turning. Something bothered me. I knew this was easy.

*

“That’s a great deal,” Restrepo admitted. A huge one. There wasn’t much to this thing. We hollowed out a groove. “Lazro? Cuffing season’s started early for you.”

 

Month 2

Soraya brought him to her room once, and knew she wasn’t going to do that again. That decision was made by the time he sat in her car. Firstly, she thought, this thing wasn’t supposed to flourish. She doesn’t think it’s serious, and as far as she knows, he doesn’t either. Also, as far as he knows, she’s single. Secondly, the point was to get off the climax she had reached not too long ago, a culmination of bubbling factors that bounced against the walls of her heart—such as, and among other things, a live-in cheater boyfriend dirtbag abroad, a despot who owned the bed she had recently besmirched with one, Lazro. There was a third thing, she thought. Whatever the point was, at this point, it has become pointedly unimportant.

**

Seated at the far end of a low-lit coffee shop on a poetry night with her not boyfriend, our fated couple toss each other through a labyrinth of questions in an effort to build upon the sands of their relationship, and instead, tumble upon the reality of their cosmetic scheme. They don’t know a damned thing about each other. Silence between poetic sets, they cramped between the corner they sat against and the married couple seated before them, whose merriment sold Lazro and Soraya every bit of substance.

Third thing, she thought.

 

Month 3

“What do you think this is? What do you think we are?!”

***

Lazro was enchanted. To him, they were the morning after, the sleep in between things, and the party at night. They were the science of McConaughey’s Interstellar, remaining ageless as time went on. Soraya kept him warm. Lazro kept her busy. She gave him life in Elysium, and for her, he was a safe bet—a good man to have around while the worst of men was yet to come.

“Come here,” he says. Soraya doesn’t respond. He wonders at her silence, then turns in his bed to look through the window. It was light out, and the snow was melting. “Damn, looks like another snow day.”

If he told her to leave and go home, she would have never returned.

***

Hindsight

I’m sure the game was rigged. I’m sure I was doing what my father, and his fathers before him, was doing. I’m sure I was doing something that I thought was right for me. It felt good, to win. To forget everything else, and not be alone. To say whatever and feel good. I was her passing fancy, a fuck given when fucks were plenty. Now, she was a memory. A burning flash like a droplet of water to hot oil. I knew something was up, that she was partly with me, and that there wasn’t a thing I could do to pull her in wholly. I feel like I wasted time. Who was she, really?

She was a passing comet, and we both died trying to inspire.

7 Tips For Finding Love in the Digital Age

by

Online dating has come a long way since it began in the 1990s and today, it is the norm for many singletons. According to the Daily Mail, a recent study by Pew Research Center found that 23 per cent of singles who meet through online dating end up marrying their partners.

7 Tips For Finding Love in the Digital Age

So, if you’re thinking about taking the plunge, how do you master the art of online dating?
If you’re a beginner, read on:

finding love online1. Use an attractive and recent photo. Don’t pick one that was taken 10 years ago just because you think you look slimmer! If you’re modest, get your friends to choose one for you and fill in your profile on mysinglefriend.com. It is important to choose a photo that looks like you now rather than 5-10 years ago!

2.Be open minded – you may be surprised. Of course you are allowed to be fussy but remember this is why you are now using an online dating website in the first place! Decide what factors mean the most to you and what you are not willing to compromise on, but be flexible with the rest.

3. Don’t be rude. If someone contacts you that really isn’t your type, be kind in your response and simply say that you are not interested. Treat people as you would want to be treated and think how you would reply if they came up to you in person. The same goes for chasing up on a message, if you haven’t had a reply, don’t become a stalker, take the hint and move on!

4.Be honest. Lies will only catch up with you further down the line, and would you like it if the other person lied to you? According to Wired, a recent study found that 80 percent of online daters lied about something on their online profile, whether it was weight, height or age. Lying before you’ve even started a relationship won’t give a good impression so be open about who you are and don’t try to create a false image.

7 tips to finding online love5. Stay safe. Avoid giving your contact details out until you feel completely happy that it is safe to do so. Get to know them out of the dating site via email or Skype before you actually give out your phone number and arrange to meet.

6.Keep the first date simple. When arranging a first date, plan to keep it short and sweet. It’s better to end a date looking forward to the next and wanting to know more. If you’ve been talking through email or on the telephone, try not to give too much away, save some conversation topics for the date itself!

7. Enjoy yourself. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself to fall in love straight away.
If you’re not having fun, you’re not doing it right! Enjoy talking to new people and try and relax. Yes, you’re likely to have a few bad dates too, but remember you have to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince!

Rachel Bilson Welcomes a Baby Girl

by

What’s up with all the celebrity babies lately? Whether pregnancy announcements like Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds or news of news of newborns, like Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr.’s new baby, Hollywood seems to be all about the kiddos right now. The latest celeb baby news comes from an O.C. actress. Rachel Bilson welcomes a baby girl!

According to Huffington Post, Bilson and her longtime boyfriend, actor Hayden Christensen–known for his role in Star Wars–welcomed a daughter to their family on October 29. The couple named their child Briar Rose.

But don’t expect to see photos of the young Bilson-Christensen child anytime soon; both celebrities support the No Kids Policy and are asking paparazzi and members of the media to avoid photographing their child.

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin Split

by

Rumored couple Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin split!

Cliché Magazine reported the pair as a couple after they were spotted together at the iHeartRadio Music Festival this past September, but are the two really broken up?

It’s hard to tell. While the media has speculated Lawrence and Martin were dating since June, the two celebrities have remained silent about any possible relationship. In fact, according to E! News, they were only photographed together–truly together and not apart but in the same photograph like at the iHeartRadio Music Festival–once, while they were getting off a private jet in Van Nuys, California last month.

Since they never released a statement about their relationship, it’s unlikely either Lawrence or Martin will comment on their break-up.

According to E! News, in an interview in the November issue of Vanity Fair, Lawrence discussed love, romance, and relationships. The Hunger Games star described her ideal relationship. Lawrence stated that, rather than a “big, passionate love,” she would “rather have just a peaceful time. [Those] are deeper because you can be your true self with somebody, and somebody can be their true self with you.”

She also revealed her biggest turnoff: “I don’t like fighting, and I find argumentative people the most annoying people on the planet. Like, why do you still want to be fighting? It’s just unattractive.”

Here’s hoping that Lawrence and Martin find love again soon!

Paula Patton Files For Divorce From Robin Thicke

by

It’s officially over. Paula Patton filed for divorce from Robin Thicke.

According to People, on October 3, Patton filed the divorce papers in Los Angeles, stating “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their failed marriage. The Precious actress also asked for joint custody of the pair’s 4-year-old son, Julian Fuego.

Patton and Thicke had met when he was only 14 years old and later married in 2005, but recently their 9-year marriage has been falling apart. After the announcement of their separation in February, Thicke has publicly apologized to his wife. In March, People reported the “Blurred Lines” singer stating, “I want everybody here to know that I’m trying to get my girl back.” Thicke even titled his latest album, Paula, after his wife.

Unfortunately, it seems his public apologies were not met with forgiveness.

And just what was Thicke apologizing for? It’s unclear. According to Time, Thicke stated, “I told my wife the truth. That’s why she left me.”

Maybe his rumored drug and alcohol abuse has something to do with the divorce. According to Time, Thicke also said, “Every day I woke up, I would take a Vicodin to start the day and then I would fill up a water bottle with vodka and drink it before and during my interviews.”

Or the divorce could have something to do with the rumors of his infidelity; ever since he performed with Miley Cyrus at the MTV Music Video Awards last summer, people have speculated how faithful Thicke has been to his wife.

Whatever the reason, surely this is a difficult time for both Thicke, Patton, and their young son.
