Need Confidence With Dating?

Need Confidence With Dating?

I’m a kind of computer geek and getting around people makes me uncomfortable unless they’re already my friends. Most of my friends are virtual friends from online gaming. How do I make new friends and especially meet girls I can date? First, you need to get out more to new places that you don’t usually go to, and, you need to get involved in groups that interest you where you can meet new people! Before you throw out a big “Duh” to my response, you might be surprised by the geeks I’ve heard from who lament not having any friends, or anyone to date. Yet, they admit to spending all their time with their computer avatars role playing through life as their alter ego. I know that you may like those characters to role play right on to your couch, especially one of those sexy cosplay girls, but, that just ain’t gonna happen! You need to role-play into real life! Step away from your computer, or say goodbye to your online gamer friends. Take off your headset and put down your video-game-controller, then go relate to some real people. When you do that, pay attention to how you look. Don’t wear your dumpster diver T-shirt. You know, the one with the tiny little holes that YOU THINK “no one can even see”…and wash your greasy hair…that is unless the group of friends you hope to meet hang at the local trading card shop playing “Magic, The Gathering”…then you’ll fit right in! It’s OK if meeting new people, and especially girls, are uncomfortable for you. Remember when you were a newb at gaming? You learned the rules of the game then played it until your skill level rose. The rules are the same for conquering your social awkwardness. Learn the rules then

Who Pays for Dinner?

Who Pays for Dinner?

It was a casual invitation to dinner but she wanted more. She wanted to at least feel that she was being courted, but when the check arrived the dance of “who’s going to pay for dinner” ensued. Being a progressive young career woman, Lauren offered to split the check. Her dinner date happily agreed. There have been more dinner dates over the past month with the all-too-familiar dance of “who’s going to pay”? Sometimes they split the check; at other times they take turns paying. When I asked Lauren if her girlfriends help pay for their dates, she explained how they all seem to approach this dilemma differently. Some expect the guy to pay for all the first dates until they are officially a couple. Others, like her, don’t have problems taking turns paying. What do you think? Who do you think should pay for dates? DATING is the topic for “The Joan Jerkovich Show” this weekend. Listen for discussion on “Signs You Have Chemistry”, and “Why Chemistry Is Important To Your Relationship”, and for a discussion on whether or not you should “Continue Dating When There’s NO Chemistry”.

Feeling STUCK In 2-Year Relationship?

Feeling STUCK In 2-Year Relationship?

I’ve been dating a guy for 2 years and we tried breaking up for 2 weeks but now we’re back together again. Part of the reason we got back together is because we’re part of a group of friends who hang together all the time. Even if I break up with him, I’m going to see him when we hang out with friends. I’m happier when I’m broken up but he pushed me to give our relationship another try so we’re back together. I’m 75% sure I should end my two-year relationship. Will I ever be 100% sure? My answer to this question in one word is “No”. We are never 100% sure of any decision we make. With any decision that you make, that is difficult for you, take the time to process that decision using the methods that have worked well for you in the past. For some of us, it can be making out a list of pros and cons. For others, we need to discuss the decision with a friend to “bounce” it off of. Do you have a trusted friend in your group that you can discuss this with? It is more complicated breaking up since you’re all friends and I’m guessing that neither of you wants to leave your friend group? Your friends can help you navigate that change which will undoubtedly make all of you uncomfortable for a while. Be prepared to grit your teeth through the discomfort as in time it will pass. From what you write, I think you’re on the path to ending your 2-year relationship. Being “happier” when you’re broken up and being “pushed” in to giving it another try are telling statements… …Whatever your decision, spend some time with it. That way, once it is made you can

9 Dangerous Clues That Your Boyfriend’s Female Friend Is MORE Than “JUST A FRIEND”

9 Dangerous Clues That Your Boyfriend's Female Friend Is MORE Than "JUST A FRIEND"

Even if your boyfriend has reassured you over and over again that his female friend is “just a friend”, there may be clues that their relationship skirts the danger zone of becoming something more. 1. He talks glowingly about her When he talks about her, you see his eyes glaze over with the look that you thought was reserved just for you. It’s the look your man gave you when you first met and fell in love. If you see that starry look in his eyes when he talks about her, danger may be lurking. 2. He runs to her with his problems You’re his girlfriend, and you expect to be his number one support person, yet, you find him calling her when issues arise. If he turns to her for emotional support, when he should be leaning on you, continue to watch for other disturbing clues. 3. He looks for opportunities to hang out with her…alone…without you If there’s always something that the two of them have to do together, alone, keep a watchful eye on their behavior. The reasons they may give you for their alone time could be to say that this is their friend thing, or that they’ve always done this together, and you can join them next time. There may be a next time, or there may not, but don’t be blindsided by a dramatic turn in your relationship where you find yourself alone…again and again. 4. You find her stuff in his apartment This is where your boyfriend tells you that he’s storing her things at his place because she ran out of storage space at her apartment. He may be just helping a friend out, but, beware if he’s helping “store” her pink toothbrush in his bathroom! 5. He’s there for her when

6 Reasons He WON’T Ask You Out On A Second Date

6 Reasons He WON'T Ask You Out On A Second Date

Do you want to secure a second date with that hot guy you’ve been excited to go out with? As taken from a sampling of single men in their 20’s and 30’s, here are 6 things that will land you in the “no-call zone” where you won’t be asked out a second time. 1. If you talk too much, don’t expect that “I’ll call you later” to be more than empty words, flippantly said to get away from you…never to return again. Yes! This was the first answer given by both age groups! So, if you have a naturally bubbly, outgoing personality, make sure you skip the caffeine before your first date. The last thing you want to do is to rev up your motor mouth, and kill the guy with word slaughter! Tone it down. Ask him questions. Let him talk. Keep your mouth shut. Listen. Make your conversation a two-way exchange and you’ll improve your chances for a second rendezvous. 2. Their Internet spying turned up some crazy, scary, dirt on you. If they haven’t Googled you or checked out your Facebook profile before your first date, you can be sure they will before your second. Doing their “research” on you was a hands-down, positively must-do, dating ritual for these men. They want to know all they can about you before they take things further, so expect to by spied on via the Internet. Also, expect that they will ask their friends about you. If they find out you’re a girl with a nasty, “slept with the whole football team” dating history, they will cancel out. That’s not the sort of “team sport” these good-guy-types are interested in. 3. They’re scared away by your troubled family. A first date isn’t the best time to tell them about your

9 Relationship Red Flags You Should Never Ignore

9 Relationship Red Flags You Should Never Ignore

When you’re new to a relationship, the flutter of attraction and romance can disguise the reality of the person you are dating. If you’re not paying attention to these 9 red flags, you could find yourself in a relationship with, not the person of your dreams, but the partner of your nightmares. The first 4 red flags focus on their past, their past, their past. 1. Past history of abuse. 2. Past history of addictions. 3. Past history of cheating. If you find out that your new love interest brought any one of these three things to their past relationships, you don’t have to look further for red flags. What you do have to do is honestly ask yourself if you are willing to be in a relationship where you will be abused, cheated on, or have to deal with their addiction. It’s not a matter of thinking that these things “might” affect you. They “will” affect you. The only hope for these 3 biggest red flags to turn from a big red “STOP!” sign, into a yellow “CAUTION!” sign, is if they readily accept personal responsibility and are actively working a program for change. While abuse, addictions and cheating can weave its way through a relationship in ways that aren’t always an absolute relationship deal breaker, the 4th red flag is undeniably problematic. 4. Past history of criminal activity. If you find out that the person you are dating has a criminal history and spent time in jail, you can assume they were guilty no matter what story they spin. That also holds true for any order of protection for stalking or domestic violence. In these instances, our legal system has done the work for you of determining this person has a serious red flag in their history. 5.
