So you think you might never find true love. You been reading all the books about relationships, and doing everything you can find your one true love match. There are some people that are searching for true love or that storybook romance but they are basically leaving out many of the most important factors.

You’ve probably heard that in order to find someone who loves you you need to love yourself first start well, this may actually be true. If you do love yourself than you will naturally attract someone who also loves you. So, the best thing to do would be to spend time working on yourself rather than spending all of your free time searching for that perfect person. You need to heal all of your old loans in order to make you feel better about yourself. Just remember that everything happens for a reason.

You have probably been looking for love in all the wrong places. Most of the people out there who are looking for love are only going to find a one night stand. However, you can’t just sit home and fantasize about your true love. You need to actually get out there and do something about it.

One mistake that you don’t want to make is settling for anyone who happens to come along. This could be a coworker or an ex-best friend or even someone who you used to be married to. Don’t settle for any of that! Tell yourself that you are good enough to find someone new and someone special. Positive energy is what will help you be attracted to and be attracted by another person.

Hey, My name is Erica. As you can probably tell, I am open to just about anything, and everything… but I do have a soft side. It’s just up to you to find it!

Come chat with me… I’ve include a few pictures so that it will not be a completely “blind” date.. As you can probably guess, I’m not too shy.

Okay, if you can handle it.. here is what I am really about!

Actually, I am very shy! I just broke up and ended a three month relationship with a guy who was just not into me, at all. I’m not really that needy! I just don’t want to compete with your other friends for your time. I want to have a 1 on 1 with someone who is into something other than their own problems, their own small time situational hangups, and, of course, being a girl, I just want to have some fun!

If you are a guy, between the ages of 19 and 45, then please do get in touch with me. At the very least, we could end up being great friends! Sure, I’m looking for a little romance, but friends are hard to come by so even if you are only just curious, why not at least talk to me and see what we have in common?

Check out my social page and drop me a note. Go ahead, try to be witty or sly, I do have a great sense of humor, and it is practically impossible to embarrass me… chow!

Couples Not Sleeping Together http://www.onlinedatingetc.com/couples-not-sleeping-together http://www.onlinedatingetc.com/couples-not-sleeping-together#comments Tue, 27 Sep 2011 04:17:01 +0000 LoveDoc http://www.onlinedatingetc.com/?p=32

Couples Not Sleeping Together

There are a variety of reasons why couples may not be sleeping together. Of course, the most obvious reason would be that they were having a bit of a disagreement over something or they could be right in the middle of an all-out brawl.

If you and your partner are not sleeping together due to a minor tiff or even a major fight, don’t worry. These things should work themselves out in time. Sometimes all it takes is to just start sleeping together and things will work themselves out naturally.

However, there are other reasons why couples don’t sleep together. Maybe your partner snores too much. Sleeping habits can keep people apart and if nothing is done about it, the problem will simply go on and on.

If your partner’s sleeping habits interfere with your own sleep then your health may be at risk. Those who snore excessively also have a higher risk of negative health effects. Sleeping apart from each other may seem like a natural way to solve the problem but this should only be a short term solution. There are other steps that you can take to remedy the situation.

Men snore more than women. In general, about 20% of women snore. About 40% of men snore. Snoring is a problem that can be fixed. You might find temporary relief by simply nudging your partner and getting him to roll over (we say ‘him’ only because of the numbers mentioned above). Ear plugs are another way to find temporary relief.

Excessive snoring is not something that should be ignored. It can be an indicator of a more serious health problem. Sleep apnea affects millions of people and can be an indicator of a health problem that needs to be addressed by a physician.

Another problem that keeps couples sleeping apart is the heat index differential. Typically, this is when the woman can’t seem to get warm and the man is always too hot. In some cases, it is just the opposite. Either way, when one partner likes it hot and the other likes it cold, the difference in opinion can lead to couples sleeping apart from each other.

The solution to this problem is to compromise and adjust. One partner selects their ideal temperature for the room and then compares that to the other partners ideal temperature. Set the temp right in the middle so that you are splitting the difference. Then subtract 4 or 5 degrees because it is easier to keep warm than it is to cool down.

The partner who likes it warm can simply use more blankets. The partner who likes it cold can wear less clothing to bed. You can also use separate blankets.

Once you have figured out all of the physical differences it is then up to you to solve all of the relationship issues which may be keeping you apart at night. If you and your partner are not sleeping together then half the battle has been won once you have made it possible to at least feel comfortable physically. Your emotional turmoil is another story.

Love And Your Health

Many doctors will prescribe a new puppy in order to bolster the health of your heart. It seems that love really can affect your health. Being in love, having people love you and having a love for life are all healthful endeavors.

Do you have a healthy relationship?

Having a healthy relationship can lead to having a healthy heart. It’s all about attitude and positive thinking. Conversely, being physically healthy can help in bolstering the health of a relationship. This is especially true for men.

A mans health can be directly proportional to his ability to have a healthy physical relationship with a woman. It’s only natural that women are attracted to healthy men. It’s the healthy man who breeds the best.

Women can’t just let themselves go either. Through the process of natural selection, a man will naturally choose a healthy looking woman. This all helps to carry humanity into the next century. Selective breeding is not a new concept.

However, on the subject of healthy relationships, it takes a bit more than a perfect physique to carry a relationship to its full potential. Women need to feel loved and men need to feel needed. If there are areas in a relationship that are lacking, sticking to the principle of men giving affection and women giving respect will most likely help to pull it together.

Love your Health

Give your body what it wants and your body will give you what you want. What does your body want? Your body wants to be healthy. What do you want? If you’re a woman, you want affection and adoration. If you’re a man, you want respect and loyalty.

If a man makes his body healthy, he will naturally get the respect and loyalty that he deserves. However, health alone cannot guarantee that he will be the perfect mate. Along with health comes responsibility. A man needs to have a healthy body but also be responsible for giving a woman the affection and adoration that she craves.

If a woman makes her body healthy, she will naturally get the affection and adoraztion that she deserves. She will not be complete unless she can also give the man the respect that he craves. It is all about finding balance.

The bottom line is that if you want good love then you need good health and it is easier to have good health if you have love. It may seem like a catch 22 but in reality, one simply brings on the other. So, the trick is to just start getting healthy and to also start giving your man or woman the adoration or respect that they need. These can be done at once.

Take baby steps and work at it every day. Your goal shouold be that by tomorrow, you will feel more love than you do today. Tomorrow you will feel that you have taken steps to improve your health. If you can take these steps every day then you will be heading in the right direction and before you know it, you will have the love and health that you desire.

Jealousy is a Red Flag

There is almost nothing that can kill a relationship quicker than jealousy. Jealousy can be a big red flag that shows that a relationship is in serious trouble.

The trick is to nip it in the bud. The first thing that you need to do is recognize that you or your partner have become jealous Once you recognize that this problem exists, you can start to do something about it. Overcoming your jealous feelings takes many steps.

If you or your partner are in denial that you suffer from jealousy, it is not very likely that there is anything that you can do to help the situation. So, by far, the most important step is admitting that there is a problem with the relationship in the first place.

If you or your partner are suffering from feelings of jealousy then you need to find a way to boost self esteem. Try to take an inventory of the things that you are doing well in your life and be honest with yourself! You really must be doing some things right.

The better you feel about yourself, the easier it will be to push aside the feelings of jealousy in your relationship. As you gradually shift the way you feel about yourself toward the positive end of the scale, you will begin to notice that your jealous feelings will slip away.

Two of the tools that you can use in order to help shift your way of thinking are hypnosis and meditation. Another method that people have successfully used is to separate themselves from there daily dose of the news. Have you noticed how negative the news can be? This negatively can grow on you like moss.

You cannot control the stuff that happens in the world. When you are bombarded with negative news, you start to feel helpless. You need to start to feel positive about yourself and this can be impossible if you feel that you have no control over what happens around you.

Avoid negative news and also avoid negative people. If you can try to surround yourself with positive people then their positively will start to rub off on you. In time you will be able to feel more positive about yourself and this, in turn, will help cut down on your jealous feelings.

Start noticing when you have feelings of jealousy. Everyone knows that it is possible to change what happens in your dreams right? You can do the same thing with feelings of jealousy. Once you notice these feelings coming over you, simply shift the focus to something more positive. When you start feeling jealous, think of some of the reasons why you are good.

Forget about trying to get revenge. When it comes to a relationship, revenge is a dish that is best not served at all. After all, you already know that it’s a bad idea to burn your bridges.

Finally, find someone that you can talk to about your feelings of jealousy. Just voicing your feelings is an act that can allow jealousy to disappear or be reduced in significance. Keep in mind that the person that you are jealous of is not the best candidate for this conversation.

Hitting The Commitment Wall http://www.onlinedatingetc.com/hitting-the-commitment-wall http://www.onlinedatingetc.com/hitting-the-commitment-wall#comments Tue, 27 Sep 2011 04:11:38 +0000 LoveDoc http://www.onlinedatingetc.com/?p=25

Hitting The Commitment Wall

Joe and Shari had been together for 3 years. Joe was in the army and Shari was still at home, living with her parents. Being apart while Joe was off playing war games, was driving a wedge in their relationship.

Joe decided that it was time for them to get married. He figured that if they were married, they could both live together off-base and therefore be able to spend more time together so that they could take the natural course that their relationship deserved.

All of a sudden, Shari started to get cold feet. Apparently, this was a bigger step than she was currently prepared to take. She realized that she would be leaving the comfort and protection that she was currently receiving by living with her parents. She also realized that it was time to seriously asses her love for Joe.

All too often, couples reach the commitment wall before they are ready for the challenge. They might think that they are ready to spend the rest of their life with their significant other only to realize that they hadn’t given it as much thought as they should have.

Unlike the story above, it is most often the man who hits that commitment wall. Typically, a man will see a commitment as a restriction rather than the opening of a new door. A man may be perfectly happy with the current arrangements and not want to risk the change.

Everyone has to decide to commit in their own time and their own way, this is not something that you can push someone towards, or you may actually be working against yourself and your cause! Commitment is something that should come naturally.

If you find that your relationship has hit that commitment wall then it is probably time to make an honest assessment of your situation. Do you both have the same future in mind? Where do you see this relationship in 5, 10 or 15 years?

If you both truly see your relationship lasting for many years to come then it is probably worth your while to work through the fear of commitment.

You may even need to counseling to get through this. Another way to approach the fear of commitment is to give it a rest. Sometimes a rest can be the best test.

In the end, if your relationship is a strong one, even hitting the commitment wall will not be enough to though you off the tracks. If you are meant to be together then you will just have to wait until the time is right for both of you.

Can This Relationship Be Saved

The boyfriend is spending more and more time with his buddies. The wife is spending more and more mystery time on the internet. The girlfriend has been dropping hints about the need for some time alone. The husband works long hours and complains that he no longer has enough energy to do anything more than crash in his easy chair.

These are all signs that couold point to the end of a relationship. Can this relationship be saved? Every relationship can be saved with hard work, but both parties must decide that they want to make it work and that they are willing to put in the hard work.

Many couples stay in a relationship just for the convenience. This can be because they think that it would be easier for their children or it could be that they feel their finances could suffer if they were to go their seperate ways.

The first step to saving a relationship is to define the symptoms of the problems that you have encountered. Taking a logical approach to saving a relationship can help to put everything into perspective. Approach the situation with a business mind and try to keep the focus on solutions rather than resorting to finger pointing.

A lack of intimacy is one the more common symptoms that couples suffer from. Fortunately, this is one area of your relationship that can easily be improved upon. After all, there was a time in your relationship when intimacy came very easily to you.

You may need to force the issue a bit. You may have to make dates with each other in order to force the romance back into gear. When couples lack intimacy, they tend to start looking outside the relationship for what they have been lacking.

Develop a plan of action to fix the problem. Realize that saving a relationship is an ongoing process. The hardest part is making the decision to save your relationship in the first place. Once you make that decision, you just need to stay committed to the cause.

This is easily accomplished if you stay organized. Use your calendar. Make dates with each other and stick to them. Get a babysitter. Try to discover new things that you can do together. Discovering new things together can help to reform your bond.

Take it easy on one another. Don’t be too judgemental. Give each other a break. Also be sure to take the time to compliment each other on the every day accomplishments, even if it is something very small and insignificant.

Above all, keep on keeping on and always keep in mind that THIS relationship CAN be saved.

Breaking Up Is Hard To Do http://www.onlinedatingetc.com/breaking-up-is-hard-to-do http://www.onlinedatingetc.com/breaking-up-is-hard-to-do#comments Tue, 27 Sep 2011 04:06:47 +0000 LoveDoc http://www.onlinedatingetc.com/?p=20

Breaking Up Is Hard To Do

Breaking up is one of the hardest things in this life. Most people don’t even want to think about breaking up because the subject is just too painful. Just about everyone has been through it but nobody wants to go through it again.

Breaking up requires a grieving process. When you know that you have to break up with someone, you tend to want to put it off for as long as possible. Both parties usually know what is coming but it takes one of the partners in the relationship to actually initiate the process. Nobody wants to be that person.

It’s even more difficult to be the one receiving the bad news (even if it’s not really news). You might be wondering if the relationship is really over or if it can be saved. There are a few signs that you can look for.

Remember when you first got together? You would do everything in your power to make sure that every waking second was spent together. These days, it seems like you are spending more and more time apart. Sure, it may seem that circumstances are what is pulling you apart but in reality, you may just not really be that in to each other anymore.

When you first got together, you spent a great deal of time talking about your future (together). These days, you spend most of your time together talking about your daily duties, what’s going on in the world, etc. You rarely ever talk about your future anymore. Why do you think that is? It may be that subconsciously, deep down you know that you probably won’t be together in the future.

When you first got together, you were amazed by the fact that you rarely fought about anything. These days, it seems like the smallest things can set off a full scale war. Keep in mind that fighting is not a good thing. People who are on the verge of breaking up may find that the fighting has been escalating.

Another sign that a break up may be in your near future is that you have stopped touching each other. Sure, it is only natural that couples will not be fondling each other in public like they did when they first got together but even old married couples show affection from time to time. If there is no longer any physical attraction in your relationship then the touching may have stopped long ago.

Breaking up is hard to do but staying together can be even more difficult. Some people just have a tough time in knowing when the time has arrived. The sooner that you can cut your ties with a bad relationship, the sooner you can get on with the rest of your life.

This is not to say that your relationship is not worth saving. You just need to be able to tell the difference between a relationship that needs work and one that needs to be abandoned all together.
