Back on the dating tip track, today we are exploring internet dating rule #8: Going Back on Dating Websites —

online-dating-websites-696x492

With online dating sometimes you find someone worth hiding your profile for a while to see where and how the relationship develops. Everything seems great at first, then as time passes you begin to notice little quirks about them you can’t stand: how he scraps his fork again the plate while eating and sounds like a bear in hibernation during the night. Finally you decide it just isn’t there like you thought in the beginning. It’s time to have “the talk” and move on. There’s no point (for either person) trying to force something that simply is not there.

It’s time to put your profile back up and start from square one.

When you get back onto dating sites it’s important that you update your profile. Even if it has only been a couple of months, things have changed. Hopefully you have learned from the last relationship so you can better understand what it is you are looking for.

Start with your photos. Even if your weight hasn’t fluctuated or you haven’t drastically changed your hair, fresh pictures are important because it means you are truly representing yourself. (You may think you look the same as you did last summer, but others may beg to differ). Also, posting new photos will most likely attract new people.

Remember to always have at least one close up facial photo and one full length body pose. Wear appropriate clothing too please. If you post a boob shot, or a slutty dress don’t be shocked by emails from guys only interested in one night stands.

The room was filled with mixed emotions as Casey Affleck won the award for Best Actor – but what happened to spark the commotion?

how-to-handle-controlling-behavior-in-a-relationshipNot long after Affleck’s nomination was announced, the Academy was criticized for showing such recognition to someone who had to settle out of court with two women who alleged he’d sexually harassed. Sexual harassment is something that needs to be addressed rather than swept under the rug.

It is important to recognize controlling behavior before it turns into sexual harassment —

Here are some signs of controlling behavior in a relationship:

  1. They are always calling or texting you excessively and then get upset if you don’t respond right away.
  2. They want to know where you are and you who are with all the time.
  3. They ask you to make a date with them during a time frame that you told them previously you had plans with others. Then they try to get you to break your plans or try to join you instead.
  4. They try to make you do things you are not comfortable with or stated you don’t want to do.
  5. They get upset when you don’t comply with their demands and explode with rage or try to make you feel guilty.
  6. Despite your opinions they are always right and you are always wrong.
  7. They won’t listen to your opinions or ideas.
  8. They cannot have a conversation and see both sides of the coin, it’s their way or the highway.
  9. After one date they say you are in an exclusive relationship with them without having a discussion about it. If you go on dates with other people after the fact they freak out.

Is Breadcrumbing the New Ghosting?!

We’ve all been there, you’re texting or messaging that new person and all of a sudden they disappear. They won’t return your calls or messages – WTF?! That, my friend, is ghosting. But it seems that bread crumbing has become the new infuriating thing to do for those using dating apps.

But what is breadcrumbing anyway?

Breadcrumbing is the conscious act of leading someone on for the thrill of the ego boost. It’s the ‘hot’ cycle in the game of hot and cold. Designed to lure in one’s prey through attention, flattery and sexual intrigue, breadcrumbing is completely self-serving.

If you feel that you are giving your undivided attention to someone without any reciprocation, you’re most likely getting breadcrumbed. NOT WORTH IT! You want to make meaningful connections, your time is the most valuable thing. DO NOT waste it on someone who is just looking for an ego boost.

It’s not worth calling someone out on, because at that point you’ve given them a second chance. A player will not change their ways. They will continue to suck you dry and leave you feeling more used than before.

Below are some statistics about marriage infidelity —

As author Robert Fulghum stated, “The grass is not, in fact, always greener on the other side of the fence. No, not at all. Fences have nothing to do with it. The grass is greenest where it is watered. When crossing over fences, carry water with you and tend the grass wherever you are.”

Looking for something to do on Valentine’s Day as a single?! Nfiniti Match Valentine’s Day Speed Dating  is taking place in the area! It’s definitely something to experience if you’ve never attempted speed dating before.

When going out on first dates it’s important to listen to your date. Sometimes this is easier said than done, especially if you’re a nervous talker. You start getting anxiety and keep talking to cover it up, yet you actually are showing that you are nervous. If you find yourself doing this, stop, take a deep breath and listen. speed-dating

The last time I went speed-dating I thought I would conduct an experiment to see how many men asked me what I did for a living without me volunteering the information. Only three out of eight guys did. I asked them plenty of questions about themselves that they were happy to tell me. However it’s a two-sided street, not a one-way avenue in getting to know someone. When your date asks you a question, when you are done answering flip it back to them. If you only have six minutes to leave an impression on someone, talking only about yourself that entire time isn’t going to get you far.

Tinder and various other dating Apps are known for singles looking for hookups around them. Very rarely do you hear of a success story about how a Tinder date turned into a long term relationship rather than a one night stand. In today’s society it is hard to meet someone organically. Whether you’re in a coffee shop, bar or just on the street – people feel safer using social media to meet potential love interests.

New to the dating app scene is Coffee Meets Bagel

coffeeEvery day at noon, you‘ll receive potential matches (we call them Bagels) preselected for you so you don’t have to swipe all day. Fellas, you will receive highly curated matches preselected for you by our smart algorithm. Ladies, we will prioritize showing you Bagels that have already liked you and are serious about connecting with you. Why? Because we are fed up with all the swiping and ghosting, and wanted to make sure your time and energy would be focused on guys who are serious about taking the next step. That’s right. No more dating games, only guys who like you!

Once there is a match, we’ll connect you in a private chat room and provide icebreaker questions to get your conversation started. We even follow up to encourage actual dates.

Every day, we get smarter by learning what you like. This means over time, your match quality will improve.

For our LGBTQ members, we have a slightly different process. Every day at noon, both men and women will receive potential matches preselected just for you. (excerpt from Coffee Meets Bagel App)
