3 Things To Ask When You Date A Dad

If this is not your first go round on the singles-scene rodeo and you’ve edged your way past that awkward phase of night-club hook-ups, you might find that you have snuck into an entirely new dating demographic. It’s one where a tiny checkbox on a website is going to redirect your dating destiny if you give it a click. The one which sends out a flare out that you are ok with accepting a partner with kids.

Click consciously.

If you’ve found yourself childless and single somewhere north of your thirties, you’re statistically unlikely to find someone else with the same status. Being ok with someone with little tot or two in tow means that you don’t risk ruling out some perfectly well-adjusted bachelors who just happen to not have found forever with their baby mama. You will open up a pool of single men who once cared for a woman so much that they combined genes and created another small human.

If you are headed down this path, there are some key questions that demand asking. The kind of questions that might ordinarily seem like early-relationship suicide, but if asked and answered give you a whole lot of direction about where things might be headed.

How would you describe your relationship with your child’s mother?

Talking about exes in your early dating days is a red flag. A glowing, lava-like, blistering inferno-coloured flag. On one hand, discussing exes is just asking to unearth the decomposing stench of a relationship that has festered and died. On the other hand you might simply expose a relationship that has suffered the same fate as an accidently neglected indoor house plant, that with a teeny shortage of sunlight and water, has simply failed to thrive.

There’s one reason to address this elephant in the room. If you and the dad make it then you need to have the lowdown on this lady as she’s legit going to be an ongoing part of your life. The baby mama could be anything from your long-lost soul sister who you’d willing share tequila shots and Netflix binges right through to someone who will paint you as the most evil stepmother this side of Disney. Best to know where she falls on that spectrum.

Do you want more kids?

By definition a dad’s done this parenting thing. He either loves being a parent with every molecule of his being or he’s come up a bit gun-shy after the experience. It’s not a first-date question, but one to casually canvass once you aren’t too far in.

Regardless of whether your ovaries are screeching for offspring or shrivelling in fear, you need this answer. The beauty of it is that he has a realistic, full-bodily-fluids, unromantic view of what childbirth and child-rearing entails and if he’s up for that again, then you have a serious dad on your hands. He gets it.

If you are a bit meh when it comes to kids, and he’s not up for another go-round, then you have the perfect union – something likely to be punctuated with the conveniently scheduled insertion of offspring in your life, with known, planned, kid-free periods.

What do you expect from me?

This is a question for the advanced players on the dad-dating spectrum. The answer is often to be found in the detail of the custody arrangements. If this is the standard every-other-weekend paternal arrangement then you can look forward to fortnightly freedom – date nights, Sunday sleep-ins and control of the TV remote. If you have weak and intermittent maternal urges, this is everything you could ever want. An excuse to stock the fridge, guilt-free, with chicken nuggets and cookies’n’cream ice cream. A living, breathing reason to go to amusement parks and buy oversized popcorn.
If the baby-mama is not in a place, chemically or mentally, that permits responsible parenting, you might find there’s a lot less of the theme park and a lot more of school lunches and the relentless focus on laundry and balanced meals. Still, this might mean you’ve snared a maternal-esque experience without the inconvenience of childbirth and stretchmarks.
Being open to dating a Dad opens your world to men that have the propensity for unconditional love. The good ones will entertain your tough questions. Ask them.

 

The Writer…

Kylie McGregor was deposited kicking and screaming into singledom in her 40s and then relentlessly blogged about every rookie error she committed in navigating the online dating experience. Entirely lacking a single shred of maternal instinct the dating gods decided it was best to send a single dad her way. She traded stilettos for the suburbs, not without some soul-searching along the way.

5 Ways for Finding Local Hookups to Have Sex

Finding someone to hook up with can be quite difficult if you don’t know how to go about it. When you enter an online hookup app or website, you might find so many people looking for casual sex encounters. Yet, when it comes to finding one, you will start climbing up walls with frustration. Endless days of swiping right, only to find out that no one is responding back, followed by slight depression and loneliness is a common story amongst hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world. However, there are ways in which you can rectify this problem.

The trick is to break down this subject into smaller problems and solve them one by one. Often, a lot of people search online with a hoard of expectations for their potential partners, but ignore the fact that others have expectations too. If your profile isn’t filled properly or doesn’t communicate your personality properly, how can anyone know how great you are? Many don’t even take the extra effort to polish their own virtual identity, while expecting their potential partners to be witty, charming and good looking.

If you really want to find someone to hook up with, you need to first find the right place to search in. Once you have figured out the most active dating sites and apps, you need to create an eye catching profile that communicates exactly how you are and what you can offer. You will be disappointed initially of course. Not everyone finds success the minute they enter into a hook up site. Some people get extremely lucky, whereas others need to work at it a little bit. Here are some of the best ways to find local hookups for sex.

 

1. Find a Great Online Dating/Hookup App

There are so many dating or hook up apps and websites today like Lucky.co that offer numerous great features to help you find potential partners. The large number of available apps and websites gives you a great opportunity to find someone, but at the same time it also makes it hard. With so many options available it’s difficult to find out which ones are good and which ones aren’t. Here is where you need to do your research, but don’t just depend on online reviews. Look for user testimonials and see what people who use it, say about it. Nothing beats trying out the service yourself though. Most hook up apps and websites offer free trials which allow you to get a real good feel about it. You can try out the different features and see if the app has genuine users or not. Once it has passed your personal expectations, you can set up a proper profile and start searching.

 

2. Your Virtual Identity

Even in hook up apps, it is important to be genuine. Don’t assume that just because people in hookup apps look for casual sex encounters they will just say yes to anything you put up. Remember that responsible people will always be a little wary about strangers, especially in the online dating world. On top of that if you don’t come off as pleasing or friendly, there is no chance of finding a good partner. In these apps you only have a few seconds to make a great impression and so make use of that opportunity by setting up your profile properly. You can do this by selecting a great picture that shows off your good features, while conveying your personality and communicating well through the “About Me” section. Don’t write a boring essay that is 1000 words long. Keep it relevant and show your character through your writing. Don’t be shy about being yourself. There is always someone out there for whom you are the perfect partner.

 

3. Be Cautious

There are a lot of crazy people out there especially in the online community. Don’t go running off to meet the first person who said that they want to meet you. Talk with them for some time online and try to gauge their personality. If something about them makes you feel suspicious, trust in that instinct and cut it off right then and there. Use your common sense and judgement to find the right partners.

 

4. Communicate with Some Flair

Once you find someone who is interested in chatting with you, don’t be a bore by talking about everything under the sun. You aren’t there to make friends but to find potential partners for some great casual sex. Flirt and be naughty while chatting with the other individual. Don’t come off too strong but don’t fall back too much either. Make sure to surprise the other person by keeping the conversation pleasant, engaging and most of all fun. One question you could ask is what kind of sexual fantasies they have and which ones they haven’t been able to try out yet. This will allow you to get some good ideas on what to try out when both of you meet. Moreover, talking about fantasies will surely keep both parties engaged and interested.

 

5. Stop Typing and Start Meeting

Once you have found the perfect partner it’s time to get things rolling. Don’t hesitate in asking the other person out. If you don’t want to go out and would like to spend some time with each other at home instead, then communicate that with your partner and see if they are interested or opposed to it. Some people prefer going out on a small date before hitting the sack, since it allows them to get comfortable with you. Others prefer jumping on the sack right away and not waste time wining and dining. Each person has their own preferences and you need to compromise a bit from your side to take things forward. Move at your own pace, but don’t drag it too much or go too fast. Take notice of the tempo and just go with the flow. If both of you aren’t comfortable meeting at either of your homes then you guys could book a hotel for the night or even a motel. Just remember one thing; casual sex is all about spontaneity and fun.

Ghosting, The Social Contagion of the Millennial Generation

You get home from a lovely night out, and you smile as you recall the night’s events. Maybe, just maybe, you found someone who could end up being the One.

A few days later, you send a text so he or she knows you were thinking of them.

“Hey, you. I had a great time the other night. Would you like to go out again sometime?”

Simple, right? No strings attached. No expectations. Just an innocent desire to connect to another soul. Anyone in a getting-to-know-each-other or dating relationship is familiar with this message.

But it goes unanswered. What the heck?! Everything went fine! I mean, he or she seemed nice… Not the type to disappear. What happened??? …They could’ve said something.

The sad truth is this is all too common in the 21st century as technology becomes more commonplace. Online dating service PlentyofFish released a shocking survey in 2016 highlighting the millennial’s struggle with ghosting. Of 800 single users aged 18-33, 78 percent reported they were a ghosting victim at least once by “someone they were dating (who) suddenly ceased all communication without an explanation.”

Additionally, a 2014 investigation from Elle found equally surprising data. A poll of 185 young daters’ dating habits (65 percent of which were female) showed both men and women were just as likely to be the cowardly culprits.

Sarah Braun, an MSW student at California State University, Long Beach, and past victim, believes ghosting emerged as the popularity of online dating increased and meeting people in public settings decreased. The dynamic between the two created a lapse in social responsibility, making avoidance, and consequently hurting feelings, much easier.

“Those who ghost tend to do so to avoid confrontation, feeling negative emotions, or causing another person emotional pain,” Braun said. “Everyone is affected differently. Common feelings victims experience are confusion, uncertainty, hurt, and anger. Those who are ghosted lack closure and are often left with many unanswered questions.”

At a time in history when technology is more advanced than ever, today’s generation has an astronomical amount of information at its fingertips. As millennials, we can find solutions to today’s problems and build connections to places and people, many of which our parents and grandparents never dreamt possible. So, it begs the question: why do we, as enlightened and mindful and capable of greatness as we are, find such a damaging and viral phenomenon like ghosting even mildly acceptable?

“Such behaviour leads to the objectivization and even harsher behaviours toward others,” said Michael Southerland, MS, LMFT. “Also, it leads to avoidance of simple courtesy that is so lacking in many areas. Breaking up with someone face to face helps accept responsibility for ourselves and our relationships.”

So, how do we proceed, if we are to end this phenomenon once and for all?

“Communication is key,” Braun said. “Being honest and direct about your interest and intentions is the best way to combat (ghosting). Having this conversation may be uncomfortable, but this momentary discomfort is an act of respect for the person. It provides the person with the closure needed to let go and move on.”

But what about the rest of society, not just with you and me and the people with whom we come into contact?

“If I were treating someone who engages in ghosting, I would do my best to help them see the consequences of their behavior has on others,” Southerland said. “Acceptance of responsibility for them is the key to stopping the behavior and making them more responsible and their relationships. Thus, they would become happier individuals.”

Andrea Bolduc, another ghosting victim and a health services professional in Orange County, Calif., believes going back to more traditional dating methods would erase the stain ghosting has on dating in today’s generation. Being honest and upfront, she says, isn’t enough because honesty isn’t always objective through a digital medium.

“You can be anyone you want on online dating,” Bolduc said. “Both men and women can say whatever the other person wants to hear. We should go back to meeting in coffee shops or in public places than being behind a screen.”

New research from POF backs up her premise. A poll of 3,000 users aged 21 to 65 found that weddings might be the answer for many not having luck with online dating. Nearly 52% said weddings are great for hooking up because “it’s easy to start a conversation” while 7.8 percent said “there’s no commitment required.”

Additionally, while only 18 percent said they had hooked up at a wedding, nearly 88 percent of those respondents said it was at a wedding for a friend or relative. What seems hopeful is 15.7 percent of hookup respondents said they’d gone on to have a relationship.

Millennials, this is your personal service announcement: if you’re single and thinking about or participating in online dating, consider deleting your apps and meeting people organically when you’re not at home. Look for mixers or meetups based around hobbies or interests. Go out to your favorite place and scout for someone who catches your eye. Or better yet, dust off your dress or suit and attend a wedding. Be the real you, and you might meet someone worth your time and feelings.

HOW TO GIVE UP THE GHOSTING GAMBIT 

  • If you have any remote interest in someone, give them a chance and go out with them. Nobody suffers from some extra practice.
  • After a date, if you don’t have a desire to get to know them, let them know. You might think it’s harmless, but omitting the truth to spare someone’s feelings does more damage than being straightforward. But do it tactfully – how you craft your message makes a world of difference.
  • Only when the other person doesn’t accept the truth or becomes irrational should you consider blocking them.
  • Be mindful of what you’re looking for. If there’s something specific that doesn’t catch your interest, don’t continue to seek it out in others.
  • If you know someone who is a ghosting perpetrator, encourage them to change their ways. As the adage goes, united we stand, but divided we fall. If we are to end this phenomenon, we must do it together.

3 Hottest Things to Say During Phone Sex

“What are you wearing?”

This is the typical way that those who want to have phone sex get things started. But maybe it’s time you spice it up a bit with some more creative ideas. Are you in a bit of rut with your partner and need an injection of hotness for your next call? Try these three things to say during phone sex.

Nothing

Of course, you don’t want to sit there in silence. There needs to be sound, but maybe there doesn’t need to be words throughout the whole call. Moaning, grunting, and letting the phone go where the noises are can be extremely arousing. Put the phone down and let her listen to you imagine being inside of her while you lube up and start stroking. Or turn on some toys and start playing.

Think about finding a public space where you can still have some privacy and get yourself off over the phone. Just hearing the sounds of the streets or nature along with your moaning gives a different perspective than just thinking about you home on your couch. Some of the hottest parts of telefetish phone sex calls are when no one is talking at all.

I Won’t Judge You

One of the hottest things you can say to your phone sex partner is something like “I’m not going to judge you, you can say anything.” Once you give someone permission to be themselves without repercussions, then the real sexual desires tend to come out. Sometimes it takes hearing that you are still going to be accepted to truly let loose. This is especially true for women as we have been taught that being sexual and having lusty thoughts is inherently bad. However, that certainly doesn’t keep most women from doing so. Just prepare yourself. You might hear some freaky fantasies, but stick to your word and don’t judge. Let it be.

One Time at Band Camp

Telling someone else the sexual things you have done before, with other people, can be one of the hottest experiences for couples who are really secure in their relationship. Maybe there is a certain memory that will not leave your mind, or a technique someone once tried that sent you through the roof? If you talk about it in advance, you might be surprised to hear that it excites her to think about you with someone else. But play fair, she gets to tell her sexy stories, too.

These scenarios are easy to play out over the phone because you don’t have to think about some fictional story. This is something that actually happened to you so you just need to tell the story in detail. Talk about how someone wanted you and she will feel lucky that she is the one that ends up with you in the end.

Whether you are in a long distance relationship, or want to spice up your work days away from your partner, try these tips to take your phone sex game to the next level and leave both of you wanting more.

● Affiliate and advertising networks,

● Digital gifting,

● Additional features and premium content,

● VIP memberships, and

● Extending the dating services by staging live events.

Though applying monetization models are crucial to the success of the dating site, it is the number of conversions that actually count towards your success!

 

The Oldest Monetization Trick

Using affiliate networks is one of the most conventional methods of the monetary strategy used by several dating sites.

This method is preferred because it helps both the sites in generating shared traffic!

Also, they can earn through either CPA or the CPC model. CPA refers to Cost Per Action and CPC means Cost Per Click.

You can increase your chances of success by creating affiliations with sites relevant to your niche and in-turn advertising yourself on their website!

One example of such ingenious coupling could be with free porn tubes such as Smut6!

The Adult Way of Making Money

No matter how much taboo is attached to the word porn, it is widely available through the internet on all of our devices!

The porn industry is raking in a yearly turnover of $100 billion the world over.

With over 25 million adult sites operating globally, 12% of the revenue comes from the sites directly, and more than 30% is attributed to the web traffic.

 

Isn’t Porn Content Free?

Though free porn is available widely, it accounts for only a small percentage of the world of adult entertainment!

It is the ‘Premium Content’ that brings in the on-site profits. This feature gets the subscriber:

● HD quality videos

● No pop-up and ads

● Unlimited downloads

● Streaming of live cam

● Full-length videos

● Access to their favourite artist’s full library

These services are offered in a ‘package’ form to the member. You can subscribe for a daily, monthly, or yearly membership.

Your daily cost could range between $1-$5. But it is dependent on the content you are subscribed to, the site you are a member of, and how much time you are spending on it!

 

More Earning for the Porn Site

As mentioned earlier, subscribers bring in about 12% of the revenue to the site.

More profits come from third party sites like online dating services, adult stores selling sex toys, clothing, and accessories, cartoon porn, performance enhancement meds, adult gaming sites, etc.

These sites traffic is heavily dependent on mainstream adult sites.

They pay a proportion of their revenue to the adult site that got traffic to their site and receives a percentage of these sites as well for rendering similar services!

 

It is a mutually beneficial and advantageous relationship between an online dating and free porn tube sites!

5 Sure Signs that You Are Ready to Become Committed

Ready to Become Committed

A marriage is something usually serious and important. It cannot be treated without responsibility and thoughtfulness. And most people do approach it in a very mature way. However, there’s always an unsolved issue. You need to answer a very complicated question: Am I ready to become committed? Have I prepared for family life? Stepping into this 100% mature phase is never easy. And while we cannot answer those questions instead of you, we are still going to help you. Here are five sure signs that you are ready to become fully committed, kindly provided by our friends from Russian Brides.

 

1. You know your partner deeply

Some people start relationships with and get married to people they don’t really know. As a result, they spend several years struggling to build a strong connection with an uninterested and indifferent person. When you understand that you have learned your beloved sufficiently and his or her depths no longer frighten you (because, you know, each and every of us has those horrific depths), you are indeed ready to move on to something bigger than just a fling.

 

2. You see future life with your partnerwedding-rings

Let’s play a game. Sit down, relax, and imagine your perfect life. You need to think of every aspect, from the biggest features (your career, the country and the city you live in, how your house looks, your hobbies…) to the smallest details (the color of your kitchen curtains, the name of your bulldog…). Done? Now add your current partner into every part of the imagined scenario. Do you like what you see? Well, you are ready for commitment!

 

3. You lived your own life

The concept of “your own life” may seem a bit bizarre and made-up, yet let us explain. There’s that time in every person’s life when you do everything you like (even things you know you will regret about), develop yourself in every desired direction, study, create your own universe of interests and information, and so on. If for any reason this much-needed phase remains unfulfilled, you will not feel complete. Don’t marry before completing those tasks!

 

4. You both want to have children

Having children is an integrant element of marriage and family life. Even though the concept of a childfree family has recently become a widespread phenomenon, most people still want to have kids. If you both want to have children and remain on the same page about every aspect of this complicated event, you are ready for marriage and everything that comes along. In the end, who would love you more than your children and significant other?

 

5. You got rid of all the “extra options”

Let’s see how it works: In the modern world of mobility and rapid changes, when people start a relationship, they often leave some “extra options” – people they text from time to time, keeping them close enough to don’t lose connection, just in case if something goes wrong with current relationship. Well, if you eventually dispose of all those people and felt confident about your partner, you are 100% ready to become committed.

First Date… Table for Three

Table for Three

We’ve all experienced that wonderful feeling of a great nineteen. You know… the first nineteen minutes of meeting your date and the spark that comes with it. By the fifth minute the hostess is seating you at a perfect table and by minute nine you’re ordering a cocktail. The next couple minutes bring some witty banter and by the 15 the minute you’re sipping a Tanqueray and Tonic, looking at your date and thinking to yourself, “Wow… cute and can converse… score!”

Everything is splendid until the seconds approaching the twenty-minute mark. Somehow the conversation leads your date to respond with a sentence that brings the date to a screeching halt. The verbal slamming of the breaks that brings about the dead stop are a combination of the following…”my Ex”, “my breakup” or “my past relationship”.

 

And with just one sentence, you pull up a chair for an unexpected, worst kind of third wheel- the EXtra wheel.

Mentioning your Ex on a first date is the equivalent to taking a fire hose to a birthday cake. The flame goes out, the cake gets soggy and there’s no longer a chance for a wish. Recently I was on a date and experienced the EXtra Wheel, and the conversation was a textbook reminder why bringing up the Ex on a first date is the wrong move:

 

Your new date doesn’t need a visual of your Ex.

My date gave me a play-by- play description of his Ex, coming just shy of showing me a photo. Seems the EXtra wheel on my date was 34, Indian, skinny, hairless and quiet. I’m sure he’s quite handsome, but as a 51-year old white guy with muscles, hairy chest and a mouth that sometimes works all too well, I wondered why on Earth he’s even attracted to me. Knowing the appearance of your date’s past before you even start a first memory with them is not the best of beginnings.

 

Hearing about how your date processes a breakup before you even make out is just wrong.

A first date kicks off the discovery phase, and it doesn’t need to begin with failed relationships of the past. Hearing a sad story, an angry tale, or even a narrative of a civil ending isn’t the way to begin something new.

It’s a big neon sign saying your date isn’t over it.

Going into great detail about your Ex on a first date is perhaps the biggest red flag. Their thoughts and focus is on the past and not the present. It illuminates how your date isn’t ready to begin a new chapter with a new co-star.

When your date pulls out the EXtra chair, your best line of polite defense it to immediately change topics. If your date refers back to the EXtra chair, give the change of topic defense one more try. A third time brings your absolute right to say, “Let’s not discuss the Ex, ok? I’d rather discuss you!”.

With your polite defensive move, the party of three should go back to a party of two. However, there’s always the chance that if your date isn’t over the past and will likely shut down, bringing about the end of your date sooner than later. If that happens, wish them the best in their dating adventures and move onto the next opportunity. Chances are there’s a date on your horizon who’s more than happy to enjoy a table for two and a 21 st minute that’s all about a party of two.

Should Men Be Afraid Of Dating a Model?

SHOULS MEN BE AFRAID OF DATING A MODEL

Why Your Worries About Escorts are Unfounded!

Many men worry that they’re not going to match up to a gorgeous escort, but that’s simply not true!

Sometimes being single is difficult. If you’ve been on your own for a long time, your self-esteem can plummet. You might think that you’re never going to find anyone, or that a lot of women are out of your league. Well, that’s simply not true – and there’s something you can do to get back into the dating game. By spending time with a beautiful model, you’ll be able to gain that much needed confidence. If the thought of seeing an escort leaves you feeling nervous or insecure – here’s why it could be one of the best things you’ve ever done.

You’ll learn from your time together.

A lot of men worry about not being able to please a woman, especially if they’re inexperienced. Hiring an escort can help you to finally put those worries to bed.

Thanks to your escort’s wealth of experience, she’ll know exactly what feels good and what doesn’t, and will be very happy to give you some guidance. Once you’ve mastered those all-important skills of seduction, you’ll feel much more confident about not only seeing escorts, but women on the dating scene too.

You’ll become more confident.

Spending time with a beautiful woman will really help you to build your confidence levels. If you’re on a night out and you’re seen with your escort, you’re going to be the envy of all your friends and colleagues. Now, if that’s not going to give your ego a boost, there’s no knowing what will!

Just knowing that you’re the center of your escort’s attention will help you to feel a lot better about yourself – particularly if you feel that that many women are too good looking for you. Your escort will give you all the confidence you need to get out there and approach some really stunning women.

Your one-stop escort agency.

If you’re looking for an escort, give Elite VIP Models a call. They’re one of the most prestigious escort agencies in London, and have some stunning ladies on their books. They’re available to come and visit you at your home, your hotel or accompany you on a night out.

If you’ve never hired an escort before and aren’t sure what to expect, don’t worry. Your very own beautiful model will take the time to find out exactly what it is you need from the date, and go above and beyond to satisfy you. It doesn’t matter what kind of lady you’re after either. A classy English Rose, an exotic beauty or a Mediterranean temptress – they’re all working at Elite!

So to arrange your dream date, pick up the phone and let their friendly team help you to pick the perfect girl.

Go on, give them a call!

There’s no need to feel insecure because of your single status. Everyone deserves to have fun when they’re playing the field, and some no-strings dates with escorts will help you to do exactly that. With lots of gorgeous women waiting for you to name a time and place, there’s no excuse not to make the plunge.

Going back to the original question – should men be afraid of dating a model? With so much to gain from the experience, absolutely not!

Who Pay’s?

who pays

Times are Changing

Times have changed to where women are now asking men out. However, for whatever reason, the expectations of who pays have not. This is unrealistic! He who asks, pays. Ladies if you ask a man out, make sure you are ready to flip the bill as you would expect him to pay if he asked you out. So many women complain that chivalry is dead when, in fact, it’s the women who have changed the rules. Equality means expect what you’re willing to give. To expect something for nothing is insanity! Now men, you should always practice basic manners; now that means pulling out her chair, open her door, and stand when she leaves the table. This shows respect and appreciation for her. No matter if this is your first date or years into the relationship, making sure you’re both treating each other with respect needs to be priority. You should both bring something to the table. This is done by matching each other; splitting the bill, offering to pick up the tip, etc. Never expect something you yourself cannot give and always offer to help.

Appreciate Eachother

This shows your appreciation, respect, and the ability to collaborate with each other. There will be instances where you or him will want to plan a special trip or a night out, then DO NOT expect anything from you partner. This would be the one of the times that you’ll be solely responsible for the bill unless they offer to help. This is not a 50/50 split it is more like picking up the tip or something small. Never expect something in return for your generosity and always be mindful of the others feelings. One can feel taken advantage of or unappreciated for their generosity, that can start to create tension. This is a good way for a great relationship to fail real fast. Most marriages end due to money issues, so if you can’t get it together before then, what does that say for you? When sole responsibilities are put on one individual, it doesn’t say much for the other person. Making sure equality, courtesy, respect, and generosity are shared will make for a successful date and possible relationships. We all want someone we can share our life with, so why wouldn’t you show them what a great partner you will be?

Have a great one,

It is my belief that we need to understand our own expectations before we can place expectations onto others.
