In these days of hustle and bustle, many people seem to have forgotten the influence and importance of romance and love in our lives. Certainly we have attraction and desire for people but romance and love can sometimes be short lived instances which we ignore simply because these might need nurturing. We frequently take these for granted particularly when we have settled down or met the person who prompted these sensations to begin with.
Just about everyone agrees that a nice dinner and a good bottle of wine at a quiet, intimate restaurant will set the mood for romance, but have you seen the price tag? Not everyone can afford to spend big money on romance ever time, but a bit of creativity can get the same results without breaking the bank.
Relationships are like plants. They need to be nurtured with love, care and understanding. Those who take relationships for granted pay a heavy price for their casual approach.
The best relationships are those that are built on respect, commitment and fulfillment, not to forget communication. In fact, good communication is the foundation stone of any healthy relationship.
How many times have you found your attention wandering when listening to someone? How many times you nodded your head in understanding even though you may have missed the main point? It happens to all of us, all the time. We may hear what another person is saying but unless we listen we can’t comprehend what they are saying.
Just like regular real-world relationships, online relationships need nurturing in order to grow over time.
Here are some quick growing tips.
1. Take time and make time.
Does your online date get in touch with you regularly? Do you do the same? Neglecting virtual meetings can be considered abuse or neglect, so treat each other’s time with respect. If it’s lacking, it might mean it's time to move on.
Do opposites really attract? Well… yes and no.
You’ve heard that in love relationships, opposites do attract, and that’s probably true. People who are different than us (in temperament especially) fascinate us. But a relationship with opposites can be tumultuous, too.
In the world of dating, as everywhere else, confidence is everything. Your confident (not cocky or arrogant) attitude will be key in attracting dates and meeting people. If you feel like you have little self-confidence or issues with self-esteem, you’re probably shaking your head right now and thinking that if confidence is what’s going to make or break your dating life, then you’re already in trouble.
Have you come across a person who is so naturally friendly that when you put him inside a room of strangers, he'll be friends with almost everyone in no time? We call such a people-person, someone unbelievably nice and charismatic that he can charm anyone into doing anything.
When it’s time to strike up a conversation with a woman, some guys (maybe you), get shy and tongue-tied, only to end up frustrated and angry at themselves for not knowing what to say or how to say it.
The Blarney Stone is a historical stone, or actually part of the Blarney Castle in Ireland where it was believed that kissing the stone can grant you the gift of gab. Yeah, it seems strange in this day and age, but who are we to question tradition? It's not like I'm saying that Santa Claus doesn't exist (OOPS!).
What Is Body Language?
Body language refers to communicating our feelings and thoughts to others with gestures, posture, facial expressions, and tone of voice. In fact, we have been experiencing the impact of body language right from our childhood. As an infant, when we did not know how to speak, people tried to understand what we wished to say with the help of our little cries and gurgles, looking at our gestures and peering into the face. This process of communicating through body language keeps on going as we grow older and older.
The whirlwind feeling of being in love is all consuming. You can hardly sleep for thinking about him. You rush out of work to be with him. In fact, you are so focused on him that you begin to have less and less time with friends.
When you enter into a relationship, it is going to be good for you to be truthful. Being yourself will make your partner understand you for whom you are. Expressing love should be a daily commitment for couples.
True love is something that is not bought but is an inner expression through feelings. When there's love, the couples will not abuse each other. Instead they're going to be working together towards achieving a common goal. You won't find yourself asking questions such as: why do women cheat on men? Below are 5 tips on how you can build your relationship strong.
Getting to know that special woman is about the time you spend with her, and about what you get from communication, both verbal and physical. And the more you know, the better your chances. Thus if you plan to keep your relationship moving forward, you are going to have to find out as much as you can about her.
Communication is such an important factor in all relationships, business and personal alike, that it should come as no surprise that we need to discuss it here as well. What is communication, after all? It is the two-way interaction that occurs, both verbally and non-verbally. What is said with actions is as important, if not more so, than what is said with words. But here we're going to focus our attention on the importance of verbal communication and what it will mean for your relationship.
