Advice abounds on what it takes to have a happy relationship, covering all different areas of the union. Some of the advice is not so great, as it is based on narrow definitions of what a relationship should be like. Some of it is pretty solid, as it addresses core issues that need to be in line for any two people to get on well, especially if they are in a romantic relationship.

It can be really difficult to deal with the pain of a break up and maintain a cool head when it feels like your relationship is falling apart. Despite this panic mode that ensues, when you feel like you want to do anything it takes to hold onto her, it’s crucial that you step back and do nothing at all.
This is known as the no contact rule. It’s helpful to implement it in order to give both of you much needed space. During this period of absence you should focus your attention on you in order to build the vital self confidence that is necessary to re attract your ex.
Although there are many reasons that relationships can go sour, for the most part, when an otherwise happy relationship starts to falter the reasons may not be so clear. Sometimes the reason could be large and obvious, but most of the time the problem is the culmination of many small things, some of which the couple didn’t even realize were an issue. Here are four things that might be secretly causing stress in a relationship, as well a few practical tips on how to overcome them:
One of the sure fire ways to kill a happy relationship is to grow too familiar with each other. It is one thing to find someone that you can be yourself around; that is one of the most beautiful things in the world. However, it is another thing to start taking that person for granted and showing this familiarity and lack of respect in ways such as forgetting to do the little things that make your partner happy, getting so comfortable you feel you can “be gross” around him or her, or letting yourself go and not keeping up your physical appearance or health.
Christmas has always been considered a season of love and good feelings. The media has perpetuated this holiday mood with books, like Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol, songs like “Winter Wonderland” sung by Dean Martin, Dolly Parton, The Carpenters, and more, and of course on the big screen with a selection of well known titles featuring many artists. Five of the greatest romantic Christmas films produced within the last generation include Four Christmases, The Holiday, Love Actually, Just Friends, and While You Were Sleeping.
Four Christmases with Vince Vaughn and Reece Witherspoon is a romantic and amusing tale of a couple who considers themselves modern and detached, with no need for family ties. When the holiday season rolls around they traditionally make up excuses to their respective families, and escape for a romantic getaway, just the two of them. When their plans go awry, they are force to pay four visits to each of their parents, all divorced and living separately. In a series of awkward visits, they are forced to evaluate their own feelings on familial relations.
So, you want women to swoon over you? You want to have them falling head over heels just to land a date with you? Or maybe you just want to get an ex back? Whatever the case, if you’re trying to be the next Brad Pitt, you need to know what traits women find attractive.
Without further ado, here are top 15 characteristics that will have the ladies chasing after you.
Whether it is your own family or society at large, there are lots of ideas that have been deeply ingrained into us about how life is supposed to be, what is supposed to make us happy, what are appropriate and inappropriate ways to conduct ourselves, what constitutes success, what is responsible, what is the “right” thing to do. For the most part, these declarations are completely arbitrary and are simply the result of someone else’s thinking and opinion on how things “should” be.
But, because they have been drilled so deeply, we can begin to view these arbitrary declarations as objective fact and look at things that are ultimately a matter of preference as being “right” and “wrong.” Even if certain courses of action do not feel right, we do them anyway, thinking it is the proper thing to do. We may want to do something else but we are afraid of what others will think or that we are wrong for wanting the things that we want, that we are making some huge mistake by going after them.
Talking to girls at parties is pretty easy because there are a group of people around so it is easier to approach her. The things you need to remember is not to use some cheesy pickup line, don’t tell her you are a doctor at the university when in truth you are an office worker at the university and do not be a pig and tell her she has a lovely chest area the minute you sit down.
So how do you start to talk to girls at parties? Well you can walk up to a girl you think you may be interested in and say hi or hello. Do not say hey. That is too causal. That is something you say to your buddies not some girl you just met. If she responds with a smile, great. If she looks like she is trying to ignore you or just gets up and leaves, you may want to move on to someone else. Do not try and stalk her to get her to talk to you. It is obvious that she doesn’t so don’t force the issue.
