Onto The Next One: 7 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Give Up On Love

Onto The Next One: 7 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Give Up On Love

Onto The Next One: 7 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Give Up On Love
Relationships are scary.
We all wish we had that fantasy relationship, but once you’re dating someone, you realize that being in a relationship is hard. You have to learn how to take care of someone else when, for the longest time, you’ve been so used to taking care of only yourself.
So there you are, stuck in a relationship you enjoyed being in a year ago. You know it’s over. Where has the time gone? Oh yeah, it’s gone towards fighting, bickering, making up, fighting, not getting along and then a heartbreak. After this, you promise not to be with anyone else ever again.
Never again will you open up to someone. Never again will you give your body to someone. Never again will you make the effort to see someone. Never again will you love someone. That’s what you think, until you meet someone who makes you happy.
When you meet someone after a heartbreak, you promise yourself you’re going to act differently toward him. You think, “I’m doing this one differently. I won’t open up or move as fast as the last one.” But for what? The best part about being with someone is being able to beyourself.
Here are seven reasons why you should never hold yourself back from your next special someone:

He or she misses out on you

You are an awesome person, whether some people like to think so or not. You’re funny and exciting. You like to lounge on the couch and watch TV all day. You also like to get dolled up and go out with friends and have a good time.
Don’t let your next significant other miss out on opportunities to be with the real you. Be yourself, and if people like you, you’ll know they like you for you.

You will miss out on real love

When you hold yourself back, you’re giving up on love. Being scared to open up to someone new is normal. We’re born reserved; we don’t go up to people and tell them our life story, and we most definitely don’t tell our significant others every piece of our lives during the first month of a relationship.
There is nothing wrong with taking things slowly; just be sure you’re both on the same page and ready to move forward together.

You will never get to know him or her

People aren’t stupid. If you aren’t into them, they can feel it. If you have a wall up, they will eventually put a wall up, too. Take the risk; open up to the other person so you give him or her a chance to open up to you.
There is nothing more important than being with someone who is willing to grow with you each day.

When you’re ready, it will be too late

“It’s too late” — those are some harsh words. There are many things you can blame the other person if the relationship doesn’t work out, but if you’re constantly going backwards or stuck in the same spot, he or she will get bored and move on. Everyone deserves to be with someone who is willing to make him or her happy.

You’ll eventually be unhappy

Keeping your true self away from someone you care about can take a toll on you in the long run. You’ll get used to being so reserved and confined that it will be the only way you know.
You don’t want to end up being scared to open up to your significant other when you finally realize you are ready to be yourself. Don’t let your last relationship ruin the possibility of being happy with someone else.

You won’t experience the real definition of adventure

You want to be with someone who is spontaneous? Think outside of the box. You want to experience new places? Step out of your comfort zone. You don’t want to feel alone anymore? Let someone in.
Yes, that may sound easier said than done, but take a chance on someone new. If he or she is willing to give you his or her all, you should do the same; when you do, you’ll see what happens.

You won’t learn anything new about yourself

Being in relationships only teaches you more about who you are. It shows you what you like, love, dislike, hate and don’t care for. Take what you learned in your last relationship and put it in your new relationship.
If it’s something positive, great. If it’s negative, that’s great, too. Either way, you’ll know exactly how to steer away from that negative and turn it in to a positive.
Keep in mind that it might not work out with everyone you go steady with. That doesn’t mean you should give up on finding your soul mate.
Forget about the past; it’s behind you for a reason. If it didn’t work out with someone, there’s someone else waiting to make you happy. Just remember that you don’t want to gyp the next person out of getting the full experience of your beautiful personality.

Ladies: 10 Clichés You Should Avoid Saying On A First Date

Whether you want to believe it or not, first dates are a lot like interviews. You are telling someone about yourself in hopes of impressing them, and whether they realize it or not, they are making judgments about you based on what you say.
The stakes for a date are not nearly as high as they are in an interview; however, you still want to make sure you make a good first impression.
Whether you’re a guy or a girl, you should avoid using clichés, especially on the first date. They show a lack of originality and are a surefire way to come across as basic.
Below are 10 common clichés that I have heard from women during first dates. If you’re reading this list and recognize that you use some, try to be a bit more original so you sound more like an individual than a member of the general population’s pack:

“I’m not like other girls”

There are more than 3 billion women in the world; it’s safe to say not all of them are alike.
Believing all other women are the same yet somehow, you are better than them is an easy way to come off as really arrogant.

“I’m down to earth”

Every inhabitant on this planet is “down to earth” due to this little thing called gravity.
Describing yourself as down to earth is extremely unoriginal and provides nearly no insight to your personality.

“I get along with guys more than girls”

There is nothing wrong with having guy friends or even more guy friends than female friends. However, when I hear this cliché, it’s usually followed by something along the lines of “because girls are jealous haters.”
There is no need to bring down other women in efforts to explain why you don’t have them as friends.

“Most girls don’t share the same interests as me”

I’ve been told before by some women that they get along better with guys because they have more in common, like sports and cars, and that other girls only care about shopping and makeup.
This just promotes sexist stereotypes and generalizations.

“I listen to everything”

I chuckle a little whenever I ask a woman what type of music she listens to and she replies with this cliché. It’s almost never true, as there are so many genres and subgenres out there.
Listening to Top 100, EDM and some hip-hop doesn’t mean you listen to “everything.” Just say some genres or an artist instead.

“I hate liars”

This cliché’ is unnecessary because nobody actually loves liars. Let’s be honest: Does anyone enjoy being the victim of a lie?
Probably not; however, there is very little value added to the conversation in saying you hate liars. Using this cliché can make you come across as apprehensive.

“I’ve been told that I am intimidating”

Telling me that people find you intimidating will not intimidate me of you. For whatever reason, some people find it flattering when they learn they have been described as intimidating.
It might stem from the fear of being seen as “too approachable.”

“I’m tired of drama and/or games.”

People who use this cliché tend to attract drama and play games. Using this cliché also projects the sentiment, “I still have lingering feelings of resentment about past relationships.”
It’s understandable to carry baggage; just don’t make it so visible.

“I work hard, but play harder”

Those who really work hard are rarely going around, telling people about how hard they work. This cliché is usually used to describe someone’s work-life balance.
If you are using this cliché, you are ironically not working hard enough to describe yourself.

“I am the best girlfriend when I am in a relationship”

If you use this cliché on the first date, you may scare the guy away because you are already alluding to a relationship.
It may seem like you’re saying this because you’re not as good of a person when you’re single or just dating.


9 Signs It’s About Time You Take A Break From Dating

9 Signs It’s About Time You Take A Break From Dating

9 Signs It’s About Time You Take A Break From Dating
Sometimes, dating can seem tedious — too tedious. It can even start to be a bit of a nuisance. If you’ve started to compare going on dates to visiting the gyno, it’s probably time to take a break from dating.
Here are nine signs you should give the search for love a rest:

1. You Don’t Have Any Free Time

Having “me time” is a necessity. One of the benefits of being single is being able to do whatever you want, whenever you want. If you have an urge to go to yoga at 7 am on a Saturday and there’s no man begging you to stay in bed, you can go!
Regardless of your relationship status, you should be able to do anything and everything that makes you happy. If dating is consuming all of your free time and you’re having trouble putting yourself first, take a break!

2. You’re Now A Cynic

When you’re going on many dates, it’s easy to get discouraged. Maybe you’ve met men who seem good on paper, but aren’t amazing enough for you. Or, perhaps, maybe you’ve been on many first dates and wanted them to turn into second dates.
Whatever the scenario, if you’ve been on multiple dates and you’re still single, it’s natural to be disappointed. When your dating outlook starts to feel negative, it’s time for a dating hiatus. Being a pessimist or cynic won’t help you meet Mr. Right.

3. You’re Crazy Busy

Timing is everything. You should never feel like you have too much going on at once, or like you’re being pulled in all different directions. If you can’t give all of yourself to dating, simply don’t date.
If your life is super demanding, focus on yourself. When the time is right, you can put yourself out there again.

4. Your Heart Isn’t In It

If you’d rather schedule a doctor’s appointment than go on a date, now is not the right time to meet new people. Your heart has to be in the dating game.

5. You Recently Went Through A Breakup

If you still think about your ex before you fall asleep at night, it’s too soon to be dating. Make sure you’re over your ex before you move on to the next.
Yes, some people say the best way to get over someone is to get under someone new, but that’s not always the case.
If you’re looking for a lasting and meaningful relationship, make sure you’re emotionally available.

6. Your Excitement Disappeared

Does the thought of meeting new people seem awful? Are you going through the motions of dating thoughtlessly? Are you dating because your family told you to? When you lose interest in dating, a rest is mandatory.

7. You Don’t Feel Fabulous

When you meet someone new, you want to look and feel like a million bucks. You should be so confident that as soon as you walk into a room, all eyes are on you. You want to be the girl every man wants to meet.
If you’re not feeling absolutely fabulous about yourself, now is not the right time to date. You don’t want the men you’re meeting to think you’re anything but the super awesome person you are.

8. You’re A Negative Nancy

Men want to date women who are intoxicating to be around. A woman who exudes positivity is alluring. If you’re feeling a bit unenthusiastic or negative, men will notice it. If you’re coming off as anything but cheerful and lighthearted, you’ll turn off more men than you excite.
The minute you feel doubt or cynicism, stop dating.

9. You’re Tired

Dating can easily make you feel burnt out and just plain exhausted. If you take a step back and realize you’ve been a serial monogamist since you were in middle school, you may need to re-evaluate your choices.
Do you have goals you want to accomplish? Do you want some time for yourself? If so, there’s no time like the present to take a break from dating!

St. Valentine, The Real Story

St. Valentine, The Real Story

St. Valentine, The Real Story
Flowers, candy, red hearts and romance. That's what Valentine's day is all about, right? Well, maybe not.
The origin of this holiday for the expression of love really isn't romantic at all -- at least not in the traditional sense. Father Frank O'Gara of Whitefriars Street Church in Dublin, Ireland, tells the real story of the man behind the holiday -- St. Valentine.
"He was a Roman Priest at a time when there was an emperor called Claudias who persecuted the church at that particular time," Father O'Gara explains. " He also had an edict that prohibited the marriage of young people. This was based on the hypothesis that unmarried soldiers fought better than married soldiers because married soldiers might be afraid of what might happen to them or their wives or families if they died."
"I think we must bear in mind that it was a very permissive society in which Valentine lived," says Father O'Gara. "Polygamy would have been much more popular than just one woman and one man living together. And yet some of them seemed to be attracted to Christian faith. But obviously the church thought that marriage was very sacred between one man and one woman for their life and that it was to be encouraged. And so it immediately presented the problem to the Christian church of what to do about this."
"The idea of encouraging them to marry within the Christian church was what Valentine was about. And he secretly married them because of the edict."
Valentine was eventually caught, imprisoned and tortured for performing marriage ceremonies against command of Emperor Claudius the second. There are legends surrounding Valentine's actions while in prison.
"One of the men who was to judge him in line with the Roman law at the time was a man called Asterius, whose daughter was blind. He was supposed to have prayed with and healed the young girl with such astonishing effect that Asterius himself became Christian as a result."
In the year 269 AD, Valentine was sentenced to a three part execution of a beating, stoning, and finally decapitation all because of his stand for Christian marriage. The story goes that the last words he wrote were in a note to Asterius' daughter. He inspired today's romantic missives by signing it, "from your Valentine."
"What Valentine means to me as a priest," explains Father O'Gara, "is that there comes a time where you have to lay your life upon the line for what you believe. And with the power of the Holy Spirit we can do that -- even to the point of death."
Valentine's martyrdom has not gone unnoticed by the general public. In fact, Whitefriars Street Church is one of three churches that claim to house the remains of Valentine. Today, many people make the pilgrimage to the church to honor the courage and memory of this Christian saint.
"Valentine has come to be known as the patron saint of lovers. Before you enter into a Christian marriage you want some sense of God in your life -- some great need of God in your life. And we know, particularly in the modern world, many people are meeting God through his Son, Jesus Christ."
"If Valentine were here today, he would say to married couples that there comes a time where you're going to have to suffer. It's not going to be easy to maintain your commitment and your vows in marriage. Don't be surprised if the 'gushing' love that you have for someone changes to something less "gushing" but maybe much more mature. And the question is, is that young person ready for that?"
"So on the day of the marriage they have to take that into context," Father O'Gara says. "Love -- human love and sexuality is wonderful, and blessed by God -- but also the shadow of the cross. That's what Valentine means to me."
