As my first post, I would like to help everyone who thinks their relationship is in the wrong way where misunderstanding is leading.
Every relationship has its ups and downs. It is not always about rainbows and butterflies; it is never a 365-day honeymoon period. But sometimes, some of these bad days are worse than others. And these are the times that the relationship is put to a test.
There are two basic and instinctive ways to react to these times: fight or flight. You either quit and leave the relationship and your ladylove, or make an effort to save it.
5 simple techniques that you should know!
If you are experiencing these down times in your relationship, and you so badly want to keep it and keep your girlfriend, these 5 simple techniques might just be all you need to save your ailing relationship; these might be the exact same things that your girlfriend has so long been waiting from you:
1. Treat her more specially, more lovingly. Treat her like the woman she deserves – the woman you love. You might have become so familiar with her that your treatment to her has become common and routine. Go back to the days when you have just started dating, when you were still trying to win her. She would very much love to feel the exact same loving feeling and attention you’ve shown her in the past, so don’t stop yourself from giving her that. It does not need to be grandiose and lavish; it could be as simple as holding her hands in public, helping her with the door, kissing her more frequently, etc.
2. Go out on dates regularly. You don’t need a special occasion to spend quality time together. Go someplace romantic, do something memorable, and plan it out regularly. Don’t make it plain and routinely, that’d make it boring and defeat its purpose. Again, it does not have to be grandiose – just special. And on these moments, don’t let anything distract you. This is your special moment; always savor it, prepare for it, make her look forward to it. Visit SIBG for tips and techniques that will run your date perfectly!
3. Don’t fall asleep mad at each other. This is the secret of the longest lasting relationships I know. When you go to bed, make sure you’ve resolved your differences and that you’ve made peace with each other. An argument that goes overnight is a bad thought to wake up to and ruins your entire day. Moreover, it gets you used to a hostile environment and that’s never a good thing to get used to as a part of a relationship.
4. Always keep your communication lines. Some couples have this bad habit of not talking to each other when they are mad. Some men just shut up when they are mad or facing a confrontation, and this causes us women to actually nag out of frustration. These habits are bad. Always, always talk with each other no matter how angry you are. Talk normally even when you have not made peace yet – don’t make silence a habit that comes with your arguments. And always keep your communication open and comfortable.
5. Always tell each other ‘I love you’. Remind yourself that you are in love, that you are in the relationship because you love her. And you have to remind yourself that exact thought so it channels in your actions towards her. And don’t forget to actually tell her that. Say it even when you’re mad or bored or tired. Say it as often as you can to remind her about why you’re sticking to the relationship.

Relationships are that one perfect excuse to call the girl you like the cheesiest, silliest names you can imagine. But just like fashion, some terms of endearment are better off forgotten in the closet or given away to charity. They just could not cross over to the next year.
But wait, are you wondering if she likes you? Click here!
Terms of endearment to let go
So unless you’ve been in the same relationship for quite a while, there really is no reason to use these terms of endearment for your new relationship in 2014. Why? Because it’s so 2013. Here are some of the terms of endearment to let go for the new year:
- Babe/baby. Baby is so 2000s. Everyone’s using it. Every couple in their 20s and below use babe and baby and your new relationship should not join the bandwagon. Can you not be any more creative than that? Britney used this when she was 18 and that was more than ten years ago. So, yeah, you kinda’ get the picture. PS: this has also become a favorite term of endearment between girlfriends and fake friends, all the more reason to actually ditch the nickname for your new girlfriend.
- Sweetheart. Unless you’re forty or something, this term is reserved for married couples who have been together at least ten years. Yes, the ten year minimum term is an important requisite, really. This is what mommies call their kids, or what godmothers call their kids. This is what grammy calls you too. So forget about calling your new 2014 girlfriend ‘sweetheart’; wait until you stay married by 2024 at least.
- Darling. Another Grandma/Grandpa lovey name. You can reserve this for when you have your very first grandchild. And that won’t be until like 30 or so years from now, that’s quite a long time to find other appropriate terms of endearment before you succumb into the ‘darling’ stage of the relationship.
- Sweetie Pie. This is a derivation from ‘Sweetheart’ so it falls under the exact same reason as ‘sweetheart’ as to why you should totally forget about using it for the coming new year.
- Cupcake. With all those reality shows about cupcakes and cupcake makers over the last two years or so, cupcakes rose to insurmountable fame over those years as well. And ‘cupcake’ has also become a popular nickname for lovers. But the cupcake fad is almost over, reality show and terms of endearment both. I’d be damned if veggies become the next ‘in’ thing in food reality shows and everyone starts calling each other soybean and sprouts and tofu. But cupcake will have to go for 2014. Try cronuts this year.
- Boo. I don’t remember when the song ‘My Boo’ came out and hit the charts. All I know is that it has been so long ago that people just should not use ‘Boo’ anymore unless addressing your cute, puffy little fur ball of a puppy. But your girlfriend, not really. Boo should really be back to being the childspeak for ghosts anyway.

If you want to keep things classic, ‘Honey’ is your best option. But don’t forget to consider whatever pop culture thing is going to trend this year. Happy New Year!
I am back again for more tips. Thanks for liking much my previous post It means a lot! Expect more update from me
Funny women are much harder to impress than regular women. While they may be among the friendliest types of people around, their sense of humor that makes them extra nice to people are what makes them difficult to please. For one, funny women are really, really smart and they can so easily see past your pretense. You can just sashay around in your best pose or your generic pickup lines; that won’t sell you for your targeted funny lady. Is Long distance relationships – tips on how to make them work?
You have to step up to get her attention, to make her want to listen to you and to keep her pinned there. You have to make sure that you have something most other men, especially her guy buddies (which she likely has tons of) have not shown her yet.
Ways to Impress Her
So here are 5 things you have to remember the next time you go face-to-face with that one funny lady you’ve been fancying:
- Talk about your interests. Intelligent women love men who know tons of things. And these funny girls are not the kind who would mind you being a little too dorky about the things that you like. These are women that know passion; these are women who are interested in learning about tons of new things. So whether you’re a fanatic of Norwegian cooking or that you are crazy about computer games or you have a deep-seated obsession with ancient cards, trust me she will listen if you talk about it in the most interesting way.
- Be funny. And if you’re not the funny type, well, you can at least try? Funny women are mostly nice and friendly, and unless we’re talking about women who make people laugh for a living, she won’t be very critical about it. So try to be funny to her, she is likely to appreciate it.
- Find a way to show her some talent of yours. So you have a knack for card tricks, huh? Or you could put a seasoned magician to shame with your magic tricks? Or maybe you could belt out a tune or two. Whatever your talent is, now is the right time to really, really flaunt it because it will definitely get you places with this funny woman. Adam Sandler’s character wasn’t exactly the sexiest man around Drew Barrymore’s character in 50 First Dates, but those ukulele chops really did him a lot of good in impressing her!
- Tease her. Egg her to say something funny to you. Be playful around her and tease her without offending her. Your playful attitude will likely make her open up to you more and be comfortable around you.
- Don’t forget to compliment her. So after teasing her and playing around with her, never forget to leave her a lasting compliment. Avoid compliments that are very generic and are skin-deep. Funny as they are, these women are more often than not very deep thinkers and they would like to think they are appreciated for more than just their looks. Keep the physical compliments at a minimum, while focus more on all her other traits – smart, funny, fun to be with.
Here is a blog post with tips and advice. Hope you will like this one also like my previous blog post. Thanks!
In this day and age, there is really nothing surprising about unmarried couples moving in together. In fact, it’s actually become quite the norm. More couples choose to live together because (1) it is more cost-efficient to just share the rent and not have to pay for travel expenses just to be together, (2) to actually spend more time together, and (3) to do away with having to deal with roomies who barge in during sexy time (for context, see this interesting article. )
Why She Won’t Move in?
So naturally, it is just so much more surprising if your girlfriend does refuse to make the big move with you. If you are in that exact same situation, here are some possible reasons that’s stopping her from playing house with you:
- You have not been together long enough. Well, I wouldn’t get on a weekend getaway with you either if we’ve only been a couple for a week. If your relationship is pretty young, it’s only natural that she needs to get to know you more before she makes a life changing decision. Moving out after a breakup is just so much hassle that she could be spared of if she takes a little bit more time dating you. And now, click here for a guide from SIBG.com on conversations with women.
- She is not that secure in the relationship. The length of time you’ve spent together as a couple is never fully equivocal to your relationship being stable or secure enough emotionally. And if this is the case, you might have to make some relationship adjustments to make her secure in the idea of sharing a life and a home together.
- She is scared of having to shoulder all the costs. This is very much possible if you are currently jobless or if you earn less than her. Living in together means twice the consumption of electricity, water, and food; it could also mean moving in to a much bigger space with a bigger rent. And if you don’t yet have the job to finance half of those expenses, you might have to wait a bit before deciding on cohabitation.
- She does not believe in living together before marriage. Ahh, then she must be one of the few remaining conservative women of the world. They believe in the traditional ways of courtship – dating, getting serious, getting engaged, getting married, and then living in together. It could be religion, it could be upbringing, it could also be her personal choice. Whatever it is, you’ll have to live with it or leave it. (Or maybe try to sway her out of it, but don’t get your hopes up mate!)
- She is not ready to lose her single woman privileges. Even in relationships, we all love a little independence. And for some women, it’s having to come home to her own house, decorated in the way she wants it to be decorated, and not having to deal with someone else and someone else’s mess and life. Maybe she’s enjoying her individuality a little too much.
So, which reason do you think is stopping your girl?
“Everything is almost instant these days. We are living in a such fast-paced lives that we ourselves cannot seem to do this one thing: wait. Fast food, speed dating, quickies – everything these days is a glamorized version of something instant, or an instant version of something glamorous.”
But…. Why is everyone in a hurry anyway? Why is everyone rushing everything including relationships?!
I, traditional and old school-ish that I am, am not the biggest fan of shortcuts and doing things hurriedly. I hate getting results half-baked. However, since everyone seems to be running after something that everything has to be done in a jiffy, this dating tip is somehow more appropriate (I reckon no one would actually want me to give you tips on how to have a long courtship).
One week courtship plan!
So gents, here’s a one week courtship plan to convince her to become your girlfriend in just a week:
Day 1: Invite her for lunch. Lunch seems like a very friendly, but still very intimate, type of date. She would not get too confronted and too shocked with the idea of going out with you; remember, she is still getting used to the idea of having you around. Instead of taking her to a diner, go over to a quaint little resto or better yet show u with a picnic basket and take her to the nearest park.
Day 2: Randomly show up with some flowers. It is important that this day be random and free of any special occasion otherwise, your flowers won’t be as “random” as it is special. Don’t get those elaborate only-a-rich-Casanova-can-afford type of bouquets; go for one that is so simple that someone would think it was unthought of, but it was so charming that she couldn’t resist it.
Day 3: Invite her for some casual night. Beer and a local band, some dim sum, bowling – anything that would fit for your description of “Casual” and “Fun” would do. This would give her a pretty clear picture of how much fun you can have together. Drop in some hints of how great you feel when you’re together and how much fun it is. You can drop in a few compliments every now and then but don’t overdo it to the point of bordering onto being a creep. But remember the rules on giving compliments to women!
Day 4: Take her out to a very romantic dinner. The secret to successfully implementing this one-week plan is to make sure that during this whole week you don’t act provocatively or at least hint of anything sexual. That will just ruin the whole plan and she’d be more turned off than turned on. The secret is to lay this topic off for as long as possible. It will make her respect you more for respecting her and for wanting her for more than just her body.
Day 5: Bring her somewhere that allows her to experience your hobbies. This is her not only getting to enjoy your company but this is actually the first step to her entering your world. What better way to know the person than to experience the things that he loves doing, right?
Day 6: Invite her over to dinner at your place. This move is basically opening up your life to her – and there’s not a better place to do that than at your most vulnerable and yet most comfortable space: your house. But of course you have got to prepare yourself and your house for it.
Day 7: Ahh but of course, this is the day of the big reveal. This should be special and memorable but without going overboard (if you have to propose for marriage someday, it would be too hard to top). Take her out at sunrise, or somewhere very scenic – this is important; beautiful views greatly increase your chances of getting a positive answer.
The great thing about this is that you’ve put enough effort without taking too long to execute the plan. Remember, girls love effort! And that’s as much as you can do in a week to convince a lady – in a most proper way – to become you ladylove.

Everyone wants to be good at something. Save your relationship and more often than not, the best way to get there is to know the traits of the bad. If you’re looking to become a good boyfriend, the best one even, here are some things you don’t want to do and be.
5 traits that your girlfriend won’t like
Here are the 5 traits that make you a bad boyfriend, and would make your girlfriend want to run away from you (for dear life!):
- Possessiveness. First off, your partner, wife, girlfriend or lover is not your “possession”. They are not one of your trophies or gadgets or whatever inanimate object that you could put in your list of assets. She’s a human being with her own mind, her own will and the last (perhaps worst) thing you could do is hamper that freedom by “owning” her. Possessiveness is best manifested in extreme jealousy, making decisions for her, telling her what and what not to do. While some women may actually oblige to this, this trait is not healthy for the both of you. A good committed relationship requires a lot of trust – knowing that she’ll come back to you even when you let her go wherever and do whatever she pleases.
- Insensitivity. This trait often results from the lack of interest in your girlfriend or too much interest in oneself. When you’re too self-absorbed, chances are, you’d hardly notice whatever is around you. Being sensitive is knowing that something is wrong even when she’s smiling or says she’s okay. Every woman wants that kind of man – someone who is sensitive enough to know her wants, needs, and feelings and would think about her welfare along with his own.
- Dishonesty. Mutual trust is one of the key components of a happy and healthy committed relationship. And constant lying – of big things and small – will never yield honesty. It breeds doubt and mistrust, and your girlfriend will never believe you, trust you, and respect you. If you want your relationship to work, always be honest.
- Party-Pooper-ness. A good and loving relationship seeks to nurture each other, where both parties find that they are growing and fulfilling their personal needs. A bad relationship is one that hampers this growth; and you’re a bad boyfriend if you become her biggest obstacle to growth. These party-pooper boyfriends are the ones who always discourage and never encourage; they are the ones who think that their girlfriend’s dreams and ideas are nonsense and a total waste of time. This trait shows disrespect and mistrust and will emotionally scar your girlfriend.
- Abusiveness. Any form of abuse – physical, verbal, mental, sexual, even financial – is always a bad addition to a relationship. If you maltreat your girlfriend in any way, then you are not just a bad boyfriend. You are absolutely in need of professional medical intervention and you have to stay away from your girlfriend before you cause any more harm than you are doing now.

Good girls dig bad guys. This is one of the biggest, most mysterious dating behaviors of women that has continued to baffle the good men and benefited the bad men. Why would good, intelligent, gorgeous and loyal women want to be in relationships with men who only want to break their hearts? There’s a mystery.

Be an attractive Bad Good Guy
how to make her go crazy over you – a tactical guide. But while that question is yet seeking accurate answers, here’s something the good men out there could do to bring out the bad boy in them and attract the nice girls – without actually being bad:
- Swap your big sunny, toothy smiles from the half-grin of most dangerous men. Have you ever seen an assassin smile sheepishly? No. So go ahead and practice that half-smile – it looks just as dangerous as sexy. For inspiration, check out photos of the devious half of the Salvatore brothers, Damon played by Ian Somerhalder. Learn a thing or two about how to channel those inner devilish charms.
- Don’t be too friendly. I’m not saying you should be rude and mean. But cut down the social butterfly status and go for the quiet, mysterious, shy guy who likes to be alone and away from the crowd. If you’ve never watched Twilight (and even if you have, I’m pretty sure you’d deny having watched it), you might want to look at clips of Edward in the first movie where he plays an elusive, quiet, shy gentleman. Trust me, you’d get their attention by trying not to get their attention.
- Look at people in the eye. Don’t stare too long to be creepy but linger a bit than usual. See, shy guys can be quiet too; but the difference lies in how they look at people. The shy guys scan the big picture without necessarily keeping their eyes on one girl for fear of being caught. Meanwhile, bad guys are as quiet and as detached as shy people but they stare – they hold their gaze and lock eyes with the woman they fancy. They stare long enough to get the woman’s attention, capture her curiosity to the point of staring back and then letting go of the stare.
- Don’t talk too much. Remember, bad guys are mysterious! Don’t talk too much about yourself, don’t go out too much, and don’t be too active on social media. Bad guys always keep a low profile about themselves and keep the ladies waiting for him to reveal more of himself. Remember, women are interested about men they know nothing about so keep them asking without giving them any answers. Reserve that answer for the one special girl that you actually like.
- Don’t be too neat. While being hygienic is important, keep a disheveled look for yourself. Grow your hair a little bit longer than allowed, wear dark clothes, and look a little dangerous.
Ever wonder why women can’t seem to resist bad boys? It’s not because they’re jerks – no one likes someone because they’re a jerk. Rather, it’s because they’re confident and assertive – in other words, sexy. Use these pointers to build your masculine confidence and show the world (and all the women in it) who wears the pants! -Read more.
You don’t have to be a real bad guy to get some of their charms and get them ladies hooked! You just have to look the part. Good luck Good Bad Guy!
It’s been a while since my last blog post, and I really apologize for that my dear readers and fellow bloggers.
I had a busy schedule and had no time to write some new articles. But hopefully this coming weekend, I can write few and continue to post regularly.
I also received your emails, and hopefully I can get back as soon as possible as I can.
You can view this article from helpguide.org for the meantime!
Well Good day,
Love may be lovelier the second time around, but getting there may not exactly be as easy.
Getting back with your ex-girlfriend is one huge decision that comes with even bigger requirements the moment you take it. It is twice, thrice, maybe even four or five times more difficult than winning her the first time around. This time you have a history. And while at some point it may be to your advantage, it might be an obstacle most of the time.
That is why you have to work harder and give more effort on planning the dates. How you execute your every date this time around will matter more than it did in the past. So where you take her to and what you do on your every date will make or break your second chance at love.
Want her back?
After learning how to ask a woman out – advice from Sonic Seduction. Here are your best date options for winning your ex-girlfriend:
- Relive your first meeting, first date, or any significant firsts the last time you were together. Man, you have history. You had better use that to your advantage! Use your good memories together, the ones that would conjure up the most poignant, Hallmark channel kind of stories that you shared. Tap into her emotion – remind her why she loved you the first time. Of course, get into the works and make it more memorable for her this time around. You can view this article also by Examiner.com.
- Use all of her old favorites. You have this knowledge in your cards, so by all means use it well. It would give her the perfect impression that you still treasure your memory of her, that she matters enough for you to remember the little details about her. She may not mention it but trust me, she will notice it and it’s only plus points on the scoreboard for you.
- Go the extreme lengths. Just as much as there was a reason she’s once loved you, she also had as much reason that caused her to break up with you. And that’s something you’d like to push aside into the embers of un-memory. So try to make your efforts bigger than the reason of the past breakup. Rent an ad space, have someone serenade her or fill her bedroom with roses – you name it. Find something that will make her jaws drop and make her forget about and regret why she broke up with you the first time. Apart from that, you are also sending her the right message: you are a much better person now than the last time.
Remember, in trying to achieve this, you’d have to go for two things: creativity and good memory. You have to realize that your history with each other is a double edged sword; it can work for you in some instances, and the opposite in others.
And best of all, to pull this one off successfully, here are two things that you should never forget: (1) don’t bring up old fights and (2) apologize for what happened in the past.

Greetings Everyone! After my first blog post, I just want to help everybody who asked me, what could happen after the bad first date. Well, read at the end and make your best effort on your second chance!
What do you do after a bad first date? Run away? Change address and hide forever? Move on and get a new date with someone else? Sure, that’s what most men would do. But would you ever consider trying to get a second date?
It sounds ridiculous, of course. After all, no one would be crazy enough to give himself a second dose of rejection, let alone humiliation. That’s ego suicide!
But then again, why not? Everyone deserves a second chance at everything so why would you not give it a second try? Use this chance to give her a better second impression – something that’s good enough to make her forget her bad first impression on you. And besides, you might never meet a girl as special as her. Just think about all the possibilities if you make it past the second date successfully!
Don’t waste your second chance!
Sure there are tons of things to get worried about. You may have failed so horribly on the first one that she might actually think of you as a joke. You may have failed so horribly she might not even answer your call! But then again, it might not have been that bad at all and your fears are just making it seem as horrible.
Convinced about getting a second try? Great! Read this SIBG.com blog post on flirting or this article from Evan Marckatz. Okay! Be ready, here’s exactly what you can do:
- Plan an interesting invite. If you’ve botched the first dinner date, don’t expect her to still want to go out to dinner with you. In fact, don’t try to invite her to do anything that’s practically the same thing you did on the first date. It won’t be interesting and it would bring back bad first date memories. If you want to make a new impression, try out something new. Try something that she cannot say ‘no’ to, like a concert, a house party, or something that would strike her fancy. (Hopefully, you’ve talked and listened well enough on your first date to know her interests).
- Don’t go for the call – she might just not answer it. Go for a text – it’s much safer plus you’re likely to let her in on your second date plans. You could tell her your plans even before she could say no, or even before your own fear and awkwardness takes you over. You can easily plan how to say things, plus there’s always an emoticon to go with it to make things light and easygoing.
- Speak of easygoing, don’t make a big fuss of things. One, don’t call the ‘second date’ a ‘date’ – it will make her defensive and think about the first one. Second, don’t talk about the first date. Don’t even mention it if you can help it (unless you did something that requires an apology). Don’t be too pushy either. She will think you’re desperately trying to get her to like you even after your horrible first date. It might be the intention but you can always be subtle about it!
- Make sure you’d be your best self ever. Not everyone gets a second chance especially at dating so go ahead and make the most out of this. This might be your one big date and she might be the love of your life. Be your best self while at it baby!
