So your girlfriend’s sister is the spawn of Satan. Deal with it. The point is she actually is important to someone important to you. You aren’t going to have to live with her for the rest of forever.

This statement is cold hard fact. As true as north as I can get; I love me the t3ch! The tools we use to make our lives easier have changed us drastically and in so many ways. As a business owner it’s allowed me to communicate with clients, face to face, 2000 miles away. That’s almost as impressive as the Sequoia I carry around in my pants that I call a penis! Nonetheless, technology and dating is where I’m taking this little conversation today. My girlfriend and I were talking about this topic the other day. What if people put their Androids, iPhones and Black Berrys away? Have we hindered ourselves in manners that individuals didn’t foresee? How has technology changed how we present ourselves? How has it changed how we interact with one another? This is a topic that I’ll be diving more in depth with contributions from other movers and shakers in the industry.
For now, though, let me kick my mojo into low-gear. I’ve noticed that technology has made uncomfortable situations a snap! For instance, breaking up with people is a breeze! I can tell you that I’ve broken up with three different women, at the same time, with a mass text. Even our own TaylorCast broke up with dudes via text; some of these dudes not just once, but twice! Once we use technology to avoid confrontation, we have been taking out an extremely human being element to interpersonal communication and we’re being pretty damn disrespectful to the person on the receiving end of this text/email based send-off. You see, we miss an opportunity to grow; we don’t have to deal with emotional tumult, we don’t have to feel uncomfortable, we don’t have to deal with it at all. I think that disconnect from human nature hinders us in our future dealings with people on a deep personal level in some way. The ability to share and consume information from anywhere at any time has also had a profound effect on dating. I’ve been on dates where I picked a bogus venue. Luckily my phone, with Yelp, guided my date and I to a great time at nearby venues. Nonetheless, whatever happened to adventure, hmm? Sure, there are certain parts of any town or city that aren’t, er, wise to explore, if we learned nothing about Boyle Heights, in ‘Training Day.’ Even in our dating profiles we can share as much or as little as possible and people make judgments on us without even engaging us. What happened to finding and being surprised?
Heck, I might be just about the worst speller on the face of the planet, but you wouldn’t know it because of spell check! Which, by the way, what is up with those people that don’t bother with it when trying to sell themselves online or anywhere, for that matter? Technology does lot of great things, but I think it has also turned us away from having deeper connections with people that we meet online in some ways. I’m not anti-tech. Hell, I found my girlfriend on Plenty of Fish, of all places. It’s just an interesting topic to think about. What if we blacked out the more common tools of dating today? I wonder. Maybe that would be a good practice for those of us who lean on tech a little too much; get out there and meet people organically, just by getting out there and striking up a conversation. Who knows what could happen. It’s just a thought from a tool of a blogger.topadultreview.com/ What do you guys think? Do you rely a lot of on tech to handle your dating life? How has technology made your personal life better or worse?

And who could blame you? Going on a first date is one of the worst things you could ever do with a stranger, second only to having a job interview while dangling over a pit filled with dragons. But let’s say you haven’t dated for a long time due to some crazy life circumstances—like if, for example, you moved to Ohio for five months (which might or may not have happened to the author of this article). Before you dive into that dating pool, take a look at these rules for dating again after a hiatus. They may not make you a good swimmer, nevertheless they will keep you from drowning.*** 1. Look your best. Some people believe it’s smart never to spend lots of money and time looking your absolute best for a first date. All things considered, you wish to let the other person get to know the real you so that when you aren’t wearing make-up and heels he might possibly recognize you. But when you haven’t been on a date in a while, you may not remember what first date clothes are likely to look like. Let’s be honest: what you think of as your “Saturday night best” could really just mean “not pajamas.” So to be safe, go all out. ( And in case it wasn’t clear, leave the fuzzy slippers at home.) 2. Give yourself a pep talk.
Regardless of whether or not you generally talk to yourself, the first date after a break practically requires it. Look yourself in the mirror—or, if you find this too intimidating, just glance at yourself—and recite the following: “I am fun. I am cool ( despite the fact that I’m talking to my reflection). I am worth every penny. If it doesn’t work out using this date, clearly he’s just a horrible human being and it couldn’t possibly be because not every first date leads to marriage.” 3. Don’t talk about politics. You probably follow this rule already, but you’re probably also thinking, What about during an election year? Isn’t it okay then? No! Especially not then. During an election year, talking about politics is akin to bringing up the weather. “Did you know it’s raining outside? I generally don’t like the rain, and I expect that you don’t either, but if you do, it’s going to ruin everything.” In other words, the topic is boring and obvious, yet it has the possibility of alienating your date before you’ve even ordered drinks. 4. Leave the ex out of it. It can be difficult to steer clear of ex stories, particularly if many of your fun memories involve him/her.
Still, you should avoid alluding to the idea that anything may have happened to you before you met your date. Be sure to have answers ready for every single possible scenario so you don’t have to utter the dreaded words, “my boyfriend/girlfriend at the time.” What if he asks you about your last camping trip? What if she wonders why you’re not eating those tomatoes? If you practice in advance, you can confidently say, “I went camping all by myself as a sort of wilderness challenge because I am independent and brave,” and, “I once held my own hair back while I threw up after eating bad salsa.” These responses will be much more acceptable than mentioning your ex. 5. Do not kiss. Not even a friendly kiss as we part ways? No. How about if we just hug and then turn our heads slightly for a peck on the cheek? No. What if—DO NOT KISS. If you’re a seasoned dater, sure, it is possible to probably get away with a quick smooch at the end of a date. But if you’re just re-joining the dating scene after an absence, you’re apt to interpret any sort of physical sensation felt through the lips as, Wow, he loves me! I’m going to be married within the year! Just take it slowly.
You’re out on a Saturday night instead of at home in your pajamas. You’ve already accomplished plenty for one day. 6. Ignore these rules as you see fit. See, with regards to dating, it doesn’t matter whether you go out with three new people per week or haven’t dated for three years; it’s always going to be difficult. But let’s say you find yourself in a situation that seems promising—like if, for example, you suddenly get a text from someone you corresponded with on a dating site two years ago (which might or may not have happened to the author of this article).
How to Spot an Online Dating Scammer
In that case, go ahead and mention politics. Look like your normal self. Hey, go for the kiss. Because if there’s one thing joyfully coupled people know, it’s that rules don’t really apply to love. Sometimes you have to throw them all out in order to get to the second date. And by the way, once you do, you’re free to talk about whatever you’d like. ***Unless there are dragons in the pool. You’re on your own then. – editor note: If you’d like to see more of what’s out there then click on this link! Signup for Our Newsletter Get Us in Your Inbox!
Online Dating, Sex, and Relationship Advice Tips in Your Inbox… Follow @theurbandater Like this:Like Loading… Share This Article Facebook1Tweet0Pin0 Posted in: Dating & Relationships Tagged in: first dates, Relationships I’m in a reflective mood. I got up today and I was perusing a new gallery of photos on a friend’s facebook page for none other then my friend’s Hallowedding. Let me just say, birthdays, burlesque and holy matrimony DO go together! The past two weeks have been a bit stressful for me by adding new clients, new projects and two weddings for which I was the Officiant (aka Reverend). I couldn’t help but be nervous and slightly overwhelmed. Nonetheless, I got through everything and now I look ahead to the holiday season to see what that brings. I have to say though, when I first did the whole registered minister thing, it was kind of a joke in my mind, a novelty if you will.
I was naive to discount the true importance of what i might be doing… You see, I could make jokes that “yes, I’m a reverend, I’ll marry you kids right now and I do burial rites.” Funny, right? Well, it turns out it’s a lot more than that, of course. When my “nephew” asked me, I was a bit out of sorts as a result of circumstances and timing. When the time came though, i might never ever want to be anywhere else than at the side of my “nephew,” who I held when he was a baby, watched over him as a little kid and, finally, stood at his side as he opens a new chapter in his life. I was honored to be a part of it. My friends Miguel and Andora took that same plunge last weekend. Again, I was asked to take part as the Officiant of ceremonies. Again, I accepted. We joked about what I would say and what not. It was funny. This wedding was on a beach in Laguna… errr… Laguna Beach? Anyway, it was a different setting, more intimate, more individuals. More for me to worry about. I was nervous.
The rehearsal was a breeze. The day of the wedding brought a few surprises, nonetheless. We had to change locations as a result of tide being too high. Everything worked out great, though. Truly. I got through the ceremony and I saw the love in Miguel & Andora’s eyes… It was then that I really understood what my place in this whole thing really was. I was not just saying “Do you wanna be that person’s spouse, blah blah?” No, I was a caretaker for a joyous occasion, a moment in time never to be repeated, to be shared with everyone. It means an eternity and a lifetime of love. I felt grateful to be a part of that ceremony also and that many others shared their appreciation and gratitude with me made it that much more special for me. Many thanks go to my friend, Rich, for helping me prep and just being there to instill confidence when I was jittery. The last ceremony I performed was yesterday, the Hallowedding (pictures to come). I couldn’t be happier for Ron & Leanne, I truly love those two people. They had someone picked out already to accomplish the honors for their ceremony… However, that didn’t work out so they reached out to me and asked me if I wanted to officiate their wedding. I answered quickly and decidedly, “Yes, it would be my honor!” I had some idea of what I was getting into this time around. There was clearly going to be more individuals, it was going to be a far cry from my previous ceremonies that I’ve done.
Yeah. I really had no idea. Putting together the reading for the ceremony was a lot of fun. It could be a little more loose and had room for more humor, but not too much. I felt that everything was ripe for an awesome event! I sent my draft of the reading over to Lesley and Don and they both enjoyed it. I felt relieved. I knew there was clearly not going to be a rehearsal, so I needed to have time to prepare the reading and prepare myself. When the time came, my friend Loni, came with me to the Hallowedding extravaganza and read everything with me twice. She really helped me out with the wedding vow portion and I’m so grateful for that!!! The whole extravaganza was awesome, by the way. The performances by the Burlesque dancers, were sexy, creative and thus well done. It was just awesome! Lesley was great in her set, too! Anyway, the anticipation for my part was building up!
I wanted it to be done!! Between sets, DJ Hobo was “doing his thing.” Just a quick aside here: One of the lessons learned from this event was that it’s a bad idea to have the DJ trashed the show. In other words, a bottle of Absolut is absolutely not a good idea (Lesley, I’m giving you my “I’m gonna kick you in the baby maker” look… Moving on, DJ Hobo… I’m pretty sure he’s dead from alcohol poisoning, the raisin like pellet of human being flesh he calls a liver must have been calling it quits. It was almost a disaster… Fortunately, we got through everything finally. I did slip up once, calling Ron “John.” But that was it, everything else went like clockwork. At the end of it all, I was glad to be a part of yet another occasion so filled with love and excitement. I was, again, honored and touched to take part. In all, the event, when it was all said and done, made me feel like I really could get up in front of a large audience and hold their attention and stay somewhat entertaining.
It got me thinking about something else that I’d “put on the shelf.” My friend, Lesley, told me just this morning that I should be proud of myself… You know what? I totally am! I can’t put into words how that whole event made me feel. I’m an extremely fortunate person. I know, I know that these events are never about me. It’s about the couples that are being brought together. Nonetheless, I do have my part to play and it really has given me a new love and appreciation for this thing that started off merely as a joke. How foolish I was to believe it was just that… I’ve been a lucky guy these past few months. Individuals I’ve joined in marriage, by asking me to take a part in their life, in such a special way, they have given me so much… It’s impossible for me to convey what that really means to me.

Online Dating, Sex, and Relationship Advice Tips in Your Inbox… Follow @theurbandater Like this:Like Loading… Share This Article Facebook0Tweet0Pin0 Posted in: Online Dating Tagged in: tinder More things to appreciate about men . . .6) Appreciate the scent of a man. I love the way a man smells after coming out of a shower or laying around the house all day. His natural scent, mixed with something clean and fresh, or a hint of musk, or just slightly sweaty, so you can smell him. I have been known to practically swoon over a good smelling man. There was simply nothing like it in the world.7) Appreciate a man’s desire for you. I love it when a man wants me. I love to feel the desire in his gaze, in his breath, in his voice, in his touch, vibrating through his body. I love feeling the hum, the pulse, the almost tangible force of being desired by a man. I’m sure everyone woman has a moment she can recall being with a man who made her feel sexy, desirable, wanted with just a gaze, a look, or single touch. There is something about it that ignites my femininity and makes me feel powerful and vulnerable; like predator and prey all at once.8) Appreciate being noticed by a man. One of the things I really appreciate about a man being seen – like really being seen and not just for my looks.
Don’t get me wrong, I like being noticed for being attractive or feminine; more than that, I like being noticed for being me. I love it when a man compliments my “being” not just how looking. Like he notices things about me that I like or things I don’t love. I love it when men notice my intelligence, or generosity. Equally, I like when they notice that I am passionate or sad about something. I like when they notice that I’ve done specifically so they would notice me – like wear a certain perfume, or style my hair in a particular way or wear an outfit specifically for them. I also like it when they notice things about me that I don’t talk about, nevertheless they discern based on our conversation. Things like, the fact I love to cook, or appreciate certain types of adventures or activities.
I love it when they actively notice things I like. So I told a guy I liked tea and he invited me out to a tea shop. It’s great when a man actively notices you and actively is attentive to what he learns about you.9) Appreciate being challenged by a man. I love it when a man challenges me intellectually or emotionally. I don’t mean in an argument or invalidating my feelings. I mean actually honoring my thoughts, opinions, and feelings and offering a differing view point for my consideration. It’s great! I feel like he’s listening to me. He’s actually considering me and wanting something better for me. He’s opening me up to something different, something that would serve me in my life and in our relationship. I’ve had men lovingly offer me something to believe about that made an amazing difference in my life. What’s also great about this, is he didn’t try to “fix” me, or say I was “wrong”. He merely offered it to me such as a chocolate covered strawberry. It was like he really honored me as an intelligent woman who was capable of figuring it out and challenged my perception as an equal; not as a person who was an authority and had it all together or in a traditional “man” to his “woman” manner. He really respected my power to figure out what was right for me and challenged me to actually look and start thinking about other opinions and facts I hadn’t in the past.
I felt like he had given me a gift and I really appreciated it.10) Appreciate a man who appreciates your femininity. I really appreciate a man who sees me as a woman. I love it when a man holds doors open for me, helps me in to a car, puts his hand in the small of my back and gently ushers me in to a room. I love it when he moves me behind him to protect me. I love it when he acknowledges my femininity with words, or actions. When he “covers” me as a woman, offering me masculine protection and provision. When he takes care of me, and allows me to be a woman in his presence. He appreciates me being tearful or a tempest. He appreciates my cooking and still takes me out dancing. Appreciates my softness, vulnerabilities, and sensuality. He appreciates my practicality and nurturing. He appreciates me as a mom, a temptress, or business woman. He adores all the expressions of my femininity and is a demand for more.So men, how did I do? Do you feel appreciated? Did you see yourself in any of those actions? If you did I’d love to hear about it.Ladies, if any of these resonated with you, share it with the men in your life.
Don’t let another day go by, without letting the man you know how much you appreciate him for being “a man” in your life.Pages: 1 2 3Signup for Our NewsletterGet Us in Your Inbox!Online Dating, Sex, and Relationship Advice Tips in Your Inbox… Follow @theurbandater Like this:Like Loading…Share This ArticleFacebook6Tweet0Pin0Pages: 1 2 3 Posted in: Dating & Relationships, For Men, For Women, Relationships Yeah, Oprah is a little pervasive in our society…
