7 GUY Rules on the First Date


walking

1. Always pay for the first date

It is a must that you pay for the first date even if she offers to. It creates an unspoken understanding that you are not cheap. That simple gesture gives them the sense of security they look for from guys they are dating. Also it gives a good first impression and it leads to later rewards.

2. Always maintain eye-contact for the duration of the date

During the date do not give out any vibe that you are nervous and the best indicator of that is through your eyes. Maintaining eye-contact tells your date that your are confident and that you are willing to listen. Never look down or look elsewhere when she is talking to you. It might appear to her that you lack self-confidence and that is never a good thing.

3. Practice your lines

It is important that you come prepared for a date. Go over your lines in-front of a mirror or with your pet dog do whatever you think will help you. Practice conversations and confrontations with yourself and do not be ashamed because if you really like that girl you don’t want to mess this up. This will avoid awkward silences which is really brutal on first dates. I’d rather be well equipped than go about it blind-folded.

4. Ask questions about her

Start the conversation with a question. Ladies like to talk about them and make sure that you listen to every word she says. Make notes in your head so you can quote her after. This tells her that you are interested.

5. Be confident

Don’t be afraid of judgement. Ladies find honesty sweet. Tell them who you are and what you do with confidence. Its one thing to be a janitor but its another to be self-concious about it. Ladies can sense lack of confidence from a mile away. Let it all out.

6. Never introduce her to your friends in the first date

Your main goal is to get to know each other and it is quite impossible to do it in one night. Typically, she would leave out some information until your next date which is totally normal. Now introducing her to your friends in the first date when you yourself barely know each other is quite against what you really want to do. So it is important to build a strong connection with her first before you try to introduce her to your friends. In some cases, when you expose her to your boys it is likely that she involuntarily develop a connection with your friends before she does with you and you don’t want that.

7. Sell yourself

At the end of the day we are promoting ourselves to people we don’t know. Sell yourself like you would when you are in a job interview. Show her that you can take care of her by taking control of situations. Be confident in everything you say and be yourself. If she doesn’t like who you are then she’s not for you.

On a Serious Note: What is the truth about happiness?(VIDEO)


Quotes2

Happiness is a state of mind that makes you feel good about yourself. It’s this rush of feeling through your body that tells you to laugh or smile. That state or feeling are caused by things that we like and love doing.

What are the things that makes us happy? Does having a lot of money or a nice car make you happy for the rest of your life? The answer would be no. You would be surprised of how quickly our mind adapts to situations like the feeling of getting a new car or buying a very expensive house.

We are drawn to the thought that having the most expensive things would make us happy for a long period of time. Fact is, that feeling only lasts for a short period, then our minds goes back to its normal state as if nothing has changed. It is why we miswant things. We think we really want it because of its long-term effect on us, but 9 times out of 10 it wont.

Miswanting is when we want something because we think that it will make us happy for a longer period but it is never the case.

Report: Celtics ‘pretty pleased’ with return they got in trade for Rajon Rondo


ProBasketballTalk

After three years of rumors and shopping him on the open market, the Celtics finally pulled the trigger on a trade that sent their four-time All-Star point guard out of town.

Boston traded Rajon Rondo to Dallas, in exchange for Brandan Wright, Jae Crowder, Jameer Nelson and a future first- and second-round draft pick.

Wright (and potentially Crowder) are the keepers from a player perspective, but overall, the Celtics — now going all-in on a full-fledged rebuild after deciding that Rondo was not in the team’s plans for the future — will value the draft picks out of this deal more than anything else.

And somehow, that means they got plenty in return for a player with Rondo’s resumé.

From Baxter Holmes of ESPN.com:

Celtics pretty pleased with the return they got for Rondo.

If that’s true, then the team should be very concerned with those in charge of making…

Quick tip: Winning the Battle over Stress (list)


stress

We experience stress everyday whether we’re at work, school or simply being at home. We are bombarded with stress anywhere we go and whatever we’re doing. It is part of our everyday life and the only way to get through is to accept it and move forward.

The real problem is when the stress is prolonged for a period of time from either mental or physical exhaustion. Fact is a lot of people suffer from it and for some people who couldn’t cope with stress are quite possibly leaning towards taking their own life. Most suicides happen on the first day of the year, January 1st, because these people couldn’t imagine having to endure the stress of living like that for another year. Its such a shame knowing that we could have done something to prevent it from happening.

First of all, it is important to talk to someone about this issue. You cannot deal with it on your own and it is important to get other peoples opinion rather than keeping it to yourself. I remember my mother, everyday she would come home from work and she would tell us everything that happened in great detail. She wouldn’t leave anything untold. That’s why every time I would visit her work, I felt like I know everyone already. She would tell us how nice Sophia is and how Bitchy Yana is. I understood why she was telling us everything. If that would keep my mother from thinking unhealthy thoughts then I wouldn’t mind listening to her everyday.

Here are some of things you could do to reduce stress and ultimately live happier.

  • Tell someone you trust
  • Get a Hobby
  • Exercise 
  • Entertain yourself (Movies/Games)
  • Eating Healthy
  • Join classes on dealing stress
  • Have a Schedule
  • Socialize
  • Meditation
  • Time off from work
  • Balance your activities 

These are the things that will help you focus on other things and really bring back that sense of purpose. It will also help you appreciate life in a deeper sense.
