Five First-Date Friendly Venues – For the Second Time Around

When you’re getting back together with your ex there’s a fine line that you must walk between doing things the old way and making a fresh start together. Sometimes it’s best to part with the old completely and go for something completely new and different. Something you’ve never done together before. If you’ve already tried some of these things, skip those in favor of making new memories together and avoiding possible stigmas or negative emotions tied to things you’ve tried in the past.

Dating

Date Friendly Venues -1) Roller-skating or ice-skating.

Both activities are physical activities that can be a lot of fun, at any age, provided you both come into it with open minds and expecting to have a good time together. More importantly, it gives you the opportunity to hold hands, to talk, and to rediscover that “sense of fun” that flows out of relationships when times are tough.

Date Friendly Venues -2) Rodeo.

Depending on where you are in the world, rodeos offer a chance to cheer for the underdog, to laugh at the antics of the clowns, and the rush of adrenaline that almost always accompanies danger or risk. All from the relative safety of bleacher seats. Besides, what girl doesn’t love ponies?

Date Friendly Venues -3) Hot air balloon ride.

Few options available to you are more romantic than a hot air balloon ride. It’s a great way to literally get above it all and see how small your problems really are from a bird’s-eye view.

Date Friendly Venues -4) Sailing, canoeing, or white water rafting.

Unless you live in a desert climate, the odds are good that there is some venue for one of these activities nearby. Water can be romantic and fun. The time you spend together doing this is time you’re not likely to forget. It’s a great opportunity to spend time together, talk, or simple enjoy the ride — and the company.

Date Friendly Venues -5) Minor league sporting event.

Skip the high price tag and huge crowds of the average major league sporting venue. Attending a minor league sporting event allows you both to cheer for the home team without breaking the bank. More importantly, the smaller crowds give you time to talk to each other a little before, during, and after the game. You get the benefit of watching favorite sports, such as hockey, baseball, football, and even soccer, without the downside of big league games.
Great dates don’t just happen. They’re made. It takes more than a great location though to make your first date – the second time around – truly stand out from the crowd. These venues are a great start, but it’s up to you to really make this date sparkle and shine. Be on your best behavior. Treat your date well. Avoid danger zones or hot topics. And remember to have fun and remind your ex why he or she fell in love with you in the first place.

Are You Making These Disastrous Date Night Mistakes?

Date night can be a highly effective tool for putting a little love back into your relationship. Whether you’re going through a bit of a seven-year-itch or on the verge of calling it quits, making the right date night choices can be a huge win for your marriage. Unfortunately, making date night mistakes of monumental proportions, such as those listed below, can spell disaster for your efforts to save your relationship.

Spending the Entire Night Discussing Family Problems

Date night is all about getting away from the mundane issues troubling the two of you. It’s time to turn your focus on each other. Leave the kids, parents, in-laws, and outlaws at home where they belong. You want this to be a genuine “feel good” opportunity. Don’t squander it by bringing bad vibes into the evening.

Bringing Work Along on Your Date

Whether it is in thoughts or in deeds, bringing work on your date night date not only kills the mood, but also breeds resentment. In many marriages, constant work is a problem. Your spouse feels slighted because you always seem to put work before family. When you bring work on your date night that resentment becomes a deep and simmering rage. It’s just another nail in the coffin of your relationship in many ways and one that can be easily avoided one night a week.

Cancelling Date Night or Rearranging it at the Last Minute

Cancelling date nights is a huge no-no. It’s the last thing you want to do without a darned good (I mean someone has died or is about to die kind of) reason. Whenever you cancel date night, you’re essentially putting whatever reason it was before your marriage. Stuff happens. Sitters quit or cancel and you’re left scrambling to find a suitable alternative. It’s better to do a little additional scrambling than to deal with the romantic and relationship fallout of a cancellation.

The same holds true with rearranging plans at the last minute. Once the sitter is lined up and dinner plans are set for the evening, last-minute rearrangements really upset the apple cart doing more harm for the date night cause than good. The bottom line is that if you aren’t going to take date night seriously, it’s better nto to plan to have it at all.

Falling into a Date Night Rut

Whatever you do, don’t do the same thing week after week. It becomes monotonous and routine. This is your opportunity to add a little fun and excitement to your relationship. Don’t risk it by going to dinner and a movie week after week. Switch it up some and see what a difference it makes not only in your excitement about having a date night but also in your partner’s response to date night. Make a date night “bucket list” of things you’d like to do on date night together and have fun granting each other’s date night wishes.
Date night can be as exciting or as humdrum as you allow it to be. Make a compact with yourself and one another not to let your date night become a run of the mill experience that’s easily taken for granted. Do this and your marriage is sure to be one in which you do not take each other for granted either.

Dating Techniques Or Just Be Yourself

Fridays article Dating Techniques Or Just Be Yourself will hopefully give you some good ideas. Whatever Dating Technique you use or have used it has to come naturally from who you are and express your genuine self. If your not relaxed your tension will reflect in your date and minimize your chance to another date. I think the best dating tips is to be yourself and to compliment. Just tell her or him that you feel excitement about getting to know them better. My belief is that if you got feelings about someone its most likely they got feelings for you to. So take a chance and if you are sure of your feelings dont take no as an answer. 

Have a great weekend and a great date!

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last few years, you’ve heard all about the dating techniques that have been studied and developed for both men and women. The creators of these techniques swear that they work like nothing you’ve ever experienced. They say that if you really want to get the person of your dreams, all you have to do is follow these techniques and you’ll have him before you know it. While that may be true up to a point, there’s a bit of a problem with that situation.

My Banner
When you use dating techniques to land someone, do you plan to go on using them to keep that person? You must admit that these techniques have been formulated for the express purpose of getting the interest of someone you’re attracted to. Most of these techniques don’t show the true personality of the person using them. They may be effective in landing that guy to date, but they’re fake. In other words, you’re doing things that exhibit nothing of the real you. When you win someone through the use of techniques, you run the risk of that person no longer being interested in you when he discovers that you’re not who he thought you were.

Something else to consider is that someone that would fall for these dating techniques may not be a person you want to get to know further, anyway. The reason for that is he may not have realized that these are, indeed, techniques and show him nothing of the person you really are. Wouldn’t you rather have someone in your life that’s smarter than that?

love-with-all-your-heart_l

Now, when it comes to you simply being yourself when you’re on the prowl for a new dating companion or possibly a potential relationship, this person will get to know the person you really are. There will be no game playing and nothing that you’ll have to hide forever. Things start out on an even playing field and you can relax into the relationship rather than continuing to lie about what and who you really are.

Of course, if you happen to be someone with some bad habits or things that aren’t so desirable, you’ll probably want to think about making some changes. For instance, people expect other people, especially the ones they’ll be dating, to have decent hygiene. Therefore, if it’s your practice to rarely brush your teeth or neglect deodorant, those are things that will be noticed. So if you’re just brushing your teeth and putting on deodorant as part of some dating techniques, you’ll find that you need to keep doing it once you’ve landed this guy. If you don’t, he won’t be staying long enough for you to even introduce him to your family.

My Banner
These are things to think about seriously when you’re heading out to the dating arena. Should you use the dating techniques or should you just be yourself? There’s also another choice. It’s possible to mix some dating techniques in with your real personality. That may actually be the best idea of them all! I also copied one of the testimonials regarding Dates that readers of The Magic of Making Up have sent! You can read it below this article.

Thanx for reading! Light&Love 2 You!!

Dating Again!

 

“Just wanted to say thank you soooooooooo much for the amazing advice in your book the magic of making up. Yesterday was that all important First Date and it was absolutely fantastic… i just had an email from him saying what a great time he had and how he can’t believe how cool it was to be together. Also back when we split up, your book picked me up out of the mud when I was feeling the worst I ever felt in my life, and doing all the things you advised gave me a life line – now I am so much stronger and happier. I’m still going to take things slowly with my ex (I’m not at the end of your plan yet!!) but I can’t believe how well life is going only 2 months after I felt like I was half dead. Thank you so much.”

In times like these where so many people are losing their jobs due to the downward spiral of the economy, dating can become a real challenge. Even dinner dates at places like McDonald’s can be difficult to manage. That’s why it’s a tossup of whether you should have dinner out or do the cooking at home.
Consider the price of a dinner out. If you go to a nice restaurant that serves excellent food, you’ll probably do well to get out for $30 to $35. Then you need to include the tip if your server has been very attentive and provided great service. Next, you should add in the amount of fuel you used for your car. With the prices of gas these days, it can add on another $10. For couples without children, it may end at this point. If a babysitter is needed, add on another $25 – $30, depending on how late you were gone. The overall cost of that dinner out can easily reach the $100 mark before the night is over.

My Banner
Now, compare that with the price of a romantic dinner that you either cook or order in. Starting with take out, you save money instantly by picking it up yourself because you don’t have to tip anyone for service. Also, many restaurants that offer takeout orders will have specials that apply only to orders that are picked up by the customer. So you may even save more money. Your beverages will also be less expensive. That part is true even if you decide to buy food at the grocery store to cook yourself.

dinner date

Shopping and doing your own cooking can really save some money. You can find a special on two steaks; add a couple of potatoes and a bagged salad that you can spruce up a bit. Throw in some dinner rolls and you’re good to go. In fact, you’ve probably got enough money left to spring for dessert. Once you’ve set the table with candles and turned on some romantic music, the ambience is also going to be much better. You won’t have lots of people talking loudly around you, or couples with several noisy children disrupting your meal, and that can mean a lot.

The thing is that while you spent nearly $100 on a nice dinner out, and it may have been wonderful, you could have had just as nice a time staying at home. Your meal would have been just as tasty and you could have spent a nice, quiet, romantic evening together; just the two of you. As for the kids, you wouldn’t need a babysitter because you will have them in bed and sleeping before your evening begins. If you’re lucky, you may even have in-laws or great friends that love to babysit your kids and they won’t charge you a dime.
In addition, the only gas you’ve spent is on your shopping trip to the store, and that was probably something you had to do anyway. So all in all, you’ll save a great deal of money if you choose to have your romantic dinner at home.

My Banner
However, in the event of a truly special occasion, you may want to just throw caution to the wind and let someone else do the waiting on you for the night.

Thanx for reading and i wish you the best in life and love!!

Great Date Night Movies for Romance

While movies are not always the perfect date night choice, sometimes, when life is hectic, the DVD player and take-out from your favorite restaurant hits the spot quite nicely. Of course, you have to have the right date night movies to set the proper tone. Rather than going out and getting the latest Redbox blockbuster, consider these old standards instead.

Dangerous Liaisons

What movie offers more for a date night movie fest. Seduction. Intrigue. Scandal. It’s all in there and more. The acting is superb. The film is engrossing. The time period is far removed from the every day. It’s a great escape film the two of you can enjoy together – time and time again if necessary.

Aliens

You’ll have a hard time finding a better date night movie than one that will have her literally jumping into your lap. This film has all that and more. Adrenaline is a standard while watching the film that is well acted and features characters that are engrossing to say the least. After the film is over you can have a lot of fun staying up all night together because, really, who can sleep after watching that?

movies

The Tourist

Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie. Need anyone say more? This movie is filled with twists, turns, and misdirection. Once you know how the story ends, it’s worth going back and watching again to look for hints and clues. Great date night fun for a film that’s hard to grow tired of.

The Blindside

This one is a “bring the box of Kleenex” film. While the story itself isn’t sad, it is, at the very least poignant. This makes it a sure hit with ladies for date night and the combination of Sandra Bullock and football make it a great choice for the guys as well. The fact that it’s based on a true story makes it all the more touching and a great night to have her feeling emotional and romantic.

Mr. and Mrs. Smith

Another great Angelina Jolie flick, this one also stars Brad Pitt. The movie itself is action packed and full of not-so-passive aggression. If only all couples could work out their marital difficulties so easily. It certainly will help you both appreciate the normalcy of your lives together.

Date night will never be a complete and total dud if you load up your DVD with any one of these great date night movie. Just remember that the purpose of date night is to spend time together so choose movies you’re both likely to have at least some interest in watching.

Will She Be Able to Forgive Me for Cheating?

header

Cheating is a hard thing for the average woman to forgive. It’s not just the breaking of the marriage vows that is difficult for her to forgive. No matter what she says, there’s more to it than that.

Women are complicated creatures. There’s no denying that. Their reason for having such a difficult time forgiving affairs is surprisingly uncomplicated and straightforward. Your affair hits her where she hurts most – her confidence. It leaves her shaken, vulnerable, and insecure in your love for her and everything she believed to be true about your love for her.

The key is to overcome that shaken confidence. It’s only once you’re able to restore the lost confidence that she’ll be able to move on and finally forgive you for cheating.

Sound like a tall order?

You better believe it can be. But, that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. In fact, quite the opposite is true. You can do a few little things each day that will, slowly but surely, restore her faith in you, your love, and your relationship.

eyes

Where do you begin?

Start with simple words affirming your love for her. Tell her as often as she’ll hear it. Don’t beg. Don’t berate. Don’t offer excuses. Simply let her know she is loved by you.

Show her how you really feel. Small gestures often matter most. Write her little love notes. Serve breakfast in bed. Give her a night (or morning) off by taking over her typical duties for that night and morning. Start a weekly date night and do something bigger, better, and more than dinner and a movie.

Make her a priority in your life. You lead a busy life. You’re often busy providing for your family. You think you’re doing the right thing. Then, one day, you discover that your family feels like you’ve abandoned them. You’re hurt. They’re hurt. Everyone’s hurt. Take time to appreciate what you nave now rather than using it up preparing for a future that’s so uncertain.

If you haven’t already, end the affair. There’s no future for your marriage and no forgiveness that is going to come as long as the affair continues. End it. Then focus your full, undivided attention on repairing your marriage once and for all.

These little things might not seem like a big deal. They don’t involve pricy purchases, expensive gifts, or hours of endless (and mostly useless) groveling. They’re as straightforward and shockingly effective for gaining her forgiveness.

The Lost Art of Flirting – How to Drive Him Wild With or Without Words

When you first started dating, flirting came easily. Almost every tilt of your head, bat of your eyelashes, and word you said was some form of flirtation. Whether your intention was sheer playfulness or some form of subtle seduction, flirting was the language of the day – and what an effective language it was!

Over time, you left your flirting ways behind. Whether it was the fact that you felt confident in your “catch” or you simply thought you’d moved beyond the playful beginnings into a more serious and “adult” relationship.

I saw “Hogwash!”

You don’t have to give up playfulness and fun simply because you’re now married. You may have caught the prize you sought but that doesn’t mean you don’t need to work a little bit to keep his interest and attention. Subtle and not-so-subtle flirting reminds your husband that you are still interested, makes him feel desired by you, and reminds you just how much fun being in a relationship can be. The more marriage feels like fun, the less it will feel like work.

It may have been a while since you’ve flirted with your husband. Here are a few reminders about old tricks, and perhaps a few new tricks, that will drive him wild.

FOOTSIE

* Leave naughty little notes in his lunch box. It will perk up his day and let him know that you’re thinking of him.
* Send sexy text messages to him while he’s at work. There’s nothing that will have him raring to go when he gets home faster than little teasers throughout the day of what’s to come when he gets home.
* Dress to impress on your next date night. You know what he likes. Give it to him. It costs you nothing and lets him know you still think he’s worth impressing.
* Play footsie with him! Sounds a little silly but it can really get his engine going.
* Smack his bottom. It worked for Austin Powers! More importantly, it tells him you’re still noticing.
* Touch him. Even non-sexual touching is a huge turn on for guys. Remember when you first started dating? You went for any excuse just to touch him. Whether it was touching his arm, laying your head on his shoulders, or just holding hands you couldn’t get enough of touching him. Over time, things cooled down and touch became perfunctory. Make it fun and flirty all over again.
* Tell him what you want – what you really, really want in a place where he’ll have to wait to get it. It will be on his mind the entire time and the anticipation will light real fireworks when you’re finally able to make good on that whispered promise.

Flirting might be a lost art, but you can bring it back into your marriage. If you’re going through a bit of a dry spell, this may very well be the cure. At the very least, it will return an old dynamic to your relationship that may yield surprising results.

 

What’s the Big Deal About Date Night?

In the beginning, most couples have no trouble to sticking with a weekly date night. It’s a great way to go out and do fun stuff together — as a couple. It’s time to get out of the house and break the routine a bit. However, time marches on. Children come into the picture. Budgets get strained. Economies tumble. The weekly ritual of date night takes a backseat to diaper duty, PTA meetings, and extra shifts at work. Then the marriage starts to crumble bit by bit. Is all this really the result of no longer having date night? It could be. Date night is more important than many couples realize on the surface. But why is it so important?

Date Night Helps You Stay Connected

We live in an amazingly connected world. We have laptops, mobile phones, tablet devices, instant messages, Facebook status reports, Twitter feeds and countless other methods to stay connected on-the-go. With all that connectivity, the human connection often gets lost in the mix. People ignore the person sitting across the room in order to connect with someone thousands of miles away they haven’t seen in fifteen years. Date night, takes all that away and leaves the two of you alone to connect with one another — no matter what else is going on in your worlds.

a-rainy-and-romantic-night-in-ibiza_l

Allows You to Spend Time Together as Lovers

Date night is about being alone together. More importantly, it’s about going out, away from the house (and the responsibilities that live in that house) and spending time together as lovers. It’s a change to hold hands, to have adult conversations, and to, dare I say it, FLIRT with one another. It’s time to be man and woman rather than MOM and DAD. It’s important because it helps you remember why the two of you fell in love in the first place.

Forces You to Make Time for Each Other

One of the most important things you need to do, for the sake of your marriage, is make time for each other. In putting your family first, which is an admirable quality in any family, it’s very important to remember that your spouse is your family too. He or she needs your time just as much as each and every one of your children. Date night, gives you one night, out of seven, to spend time together. It shouldn’t be too much to ask — no matter how busy your lives become.

If you really want to maximize the effectiveness of date night, avoid topics of conversation involving school, work, family, and calendars — unless you’re discussing an upcoming romantic getaway that you’re both excited about. Date night is your opportunity to rev up the romance engine in your relationship. Don’t take it for granted.
