Women On The Most Intrusive Question They've Been Asked On A First Date

Relationship
One surefire way to ruin a first date is to dominate the conversation, droning on and on about your new app idea, your trip to Lisbon and your dog’s skin condition without ever taking a beat to ask the person sitting across from you anything about them.That may be why 65% of U.S. singles say that the first-date move that impresses them most is when their date asks them a lot of questions, according to Match.com’s 2018 “Singles In America” survey.But that, of course, assumes your date has the basic decency to ask the right kind of questions — ones that show a genuine interest in getting to know you without being overly personal, sexual or otherwise offensive in nature.We asked women to share the most intrusive question they’ve ever been asked on a first date and, in the process, discovered there’s a bunch of people in the dating pool who need to brush up on their manners ASAP. Use the questions below as a primer on what not to bring up on your next date:...

Good Men Still Exist!

Relationship
5 Defining Qualities Of A Good ManIn a society drowning in articles, dating advice magazines, social media updates, and barely enough time to slow down and reset – we are left with an overflow of information about “what to do”, but hardly enough advice on who to be.Especially for men, most of the “advice” available out there is how to talk to women, how to treat them or how to start a conversation. However, regardless of what you say or do, the thing that matters the most is who you are.So, if we want to turn into men who women naturally want to be around without persuasion, how do we approach it?Here are 5 qualities that make a good man:1. He is a gentlemanA great man needs to be polite, considerate, respectful and attentive to a woman’s needs. This also including classic gentlemanly behavior such as holding the door, pulling a woman’s chair, taking her coat, walking on the car side of the street, and more. It’s not an overstatement to say that if all men were gentlemen, we would live in a much better world. Sadly, today things are not like that, making guys that have that quality stand out from the rest. In addition, great men never cross the line of being inappropriate....

Top Relationship Mistakes to Avoid

Relationship
Relationships mistakes are often unavoidable. There are certain things that you won’t know about in advance, and you find out too late. But there are a lot of relationship mistakes you can avoid if you make a conscious effort. He is our list to help you avoid these relationship mistakes instead of making them.1. Do not look to far ahead. Stop writing a romance novel in your head. Deal with the reality, and stick with the facts and only the fact of what you know, not what you assume. Don’t look at future promises as things you are being given today. Sure, you got the promise they will spend more time with you, or end their other relationship, or be more affectionate. But until they do, you have NOTHING.  Just a promise that has not been fulfilled. Until it is, it is worthless. Use your time in the early stages to see things for what they are, are honestly ask yourself if this person is organically compatible with you in the most important ways. If they are too much work, then perhaps they are not the right one for you....

I Don’t Understand How People Are Ok With Themselves Knowing They Emotionally Destroyed Someone

Relationship
The Short And Long-Term Effects Of Emotional Abuse And How To Deal With ThemOur inner world is one of the things people tend to keep completely for themselves, and no matter how empathetic and caring you may be, you can never know the exact way someone is feeling, regardless of how much they try to show you.Emotions are a deep and powerful part of everyday life, and the pain people can go through is oftentimes masked. But people who do not take the time to reflect on their feelings, on what is making them feel the way they are feeling, will not be able to learn how to bring them under control. Often people do not even realize they are the victims of emotional abuse, and in these cases, it tends to go unnoticed. Nonetheless, it is important to take the necessary time and try to be as objective as you possibly can whenever you notice that you’re feeling emotionally hurt in any way. ...

Jon Stewart Slams Congress on Behalf of 9/11 First Responders

Relationship
Former “The Daily Show” host and 9/11 first responders advocate Jon Stewart got highly emotional during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday. Fighting back tears, the comedian berated Congress as he fought for reauthorization of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund.RELATED:Courage and FearAs furious as Stewart was about first responders’ healthcare struggles — the fund is set to expire in 2020 — he was perhaps just as mad about the fact that many lawmakers didn’t even bother to show up to the hearing. With so many empty seats, the room felt barren."As I sit here today, I can't help but think, what an incredible metaphor this room is for the entire process that getting healthcare and benefits for 9/11 first responders has come to,” Stewart boldly proclaimed. “…Behind me, a filled room of 9/11 first responders, and in front of me, a nearly empty Congress.”...

Dads Really Do Know Best When It Comes to Money

A lot of people look to their fathers for all sorts of advice.

And it isn’t just the types of questions that start with our hands out and “can I borrow?” According to the results, dads have a significant impact on the development of good money habits.But that’s what financial advisors are supposed to be for, right?

How do we get back to a normal sex life after my time in hospital?

Relationship
I am recovering from a suicide attempt. My partner has been a great support, but I am worried about intimacy and our sex life. I am scared that he thinks I am still too ill, or that he has “desexualised” me since seeing me in hospital and is treating me in a nurturing way, not romantically. He struggles to know how to act around me. How do we get back to a functioning sex life and sense of normality?Your partner is displaying natural concern and a desire to protect you. Allow him to be caring and try to show gratitude. A full return to seeing each other as romantic partners will take time. It is common for a person who experiences near-loss of a partner to withdraw psychologically a little, to protect himself against the pain of a possible future loss. It would be wise to fully disclose the feelings and rationale that led you to your attempt. You have your own healing journey ahead, so try not to expect too much too soon – of either of you.

Find a man who doesn’t want harder erections that last longer. That’s why when I had the opportunity to try out GAINSWave — a form of extracorporeal shockwave therapy for men with erectile dysfunction — I knew I had to give it a try.RELATED:Everything You Need to Know About Erectile DysfunctionDespite not really struggling with ED much in my life (give or take a few occasions when I’ve had one too many to drink), GAINSWave sounded appealing enough. On paper, it claims to remove micro-plague, stimulating growth to form new blood vessels while optimizing blood flow to the penis.Even though I can get hard just fine, well, maybe with GAINSWave, I could get harder.My first thought upon getting ready for my GAINSWave treatment? It sounds somewhat terrifying. It uses high frequency, low-intensity sound waves to “shock” your penis. Shockwave therapy has been around since the 1980s to disintegrate kidney stones and treat epicondylitis, plantar fasciitis, cuff tendinitis, trochanteritis, and Achilles tendonitis, but it wasn’t until about seven years ago that it was repurposed to treat ED. It’s even shown to be relatively effective, with roughly 75 percent of men reporting significant improvement after treatment....

9 Non-Sexual Traits Women Find Incredibly Sexy in Guys

The notion that women are inscrutable or impossible to understand is one that male culture still holds onto in many ways even to this day.One result of that almost intentional confusion — men rarely seem to ask actual women the question (it’s almost rhetorical to a certain degree) — is that there tends to be a pretty big disconnect between what men think women want and what women actually want in a partner.

For six years, they wrote to each other every day. “A day without a letter was a bad day,” says Paul.The postal service wasn’t always reliable, says Monika, “so sometimes there wouldn’t be a letter for three days and I’d think: ‘Ah, he doesn’t love me any more.’ I’d listen out for the postman and, if I could hear something, I’d rush down and there would be eight letters and it was all right after all.” For Paul, it was a battle between he and his dog as to who could reach the post first when it landed on the mat....

Australia’s decision not to ban poppers is a win for sensible drug policy, but the stigma remains | Joshua Bridge

Relationship
For unfamiliar readers, poppers are a group of caustic liquids, the fumes of which users inhale through the nose. Poppers produce a warm, tingly sensation for around 30 seconds, making them popular in gay club scenes, but they are also used as a muscle relaxant to make anal sex comfortable and enjoyable. They are typically sold as leather or VHS cleaner in adult stores in a tongue-in-cheek way.In 2018, the Therapeutic Goods Administration proposed a wholesale ban on poppers, prompting a backlash from health organisations, LGBTI activists and even a former Australian federal police chief. The TGA has reversed this position, deciding instead to regulate most poppers.This is a win for sensible drug policy but it is by no means a done deal. To unpack the pressing issues going forward we need to have a close look at the particulars of the TGA’s decision. One important detail to understand is that alkyl nitrites (AKA poppers) aren’t one chemical but a family of compounds which are regulated differently....

If the magisterial 63 Up teaches us anything, it’s that we are sustained by love | Tim Adams

Relationship
On Friday night my wife, Lisa, and I watched the three episodes of 63 Up while my youngest daughter and her friend, in a respite from the brutal slog of GCSEs, caught up with a week of Love Island upstairs. Those of us who like to feel as if we have grown up with Michael Apted’s series – I was born the year after the first film, Seven Up!, was broadcast in 1964 – might be tempted to see some kind of tale for our times in that juxtaposition. There probably isn’t one, except to hope that some smart producer, with an eye on longevity, has signed up the love islanders for return visits in 2026 and 2033 and 2040, so we can observe the effect of time and mortgage interest and sleepless parenting on their muscle tone and wayward eyes....

The Dilemma I’m 36, have been married for six months and have a two-month-old daughter. From the day she was born we asked everyone not to post social media pictures of her.

At the same sister-in-law’s birthday another one containing our daughter was posted and then removed after we pointed out our wishes again. Tit-for-tat about double standards escalated over text, with my wife and I being asked to remove any pictures of their children, which of course we were happy to do all along. My wife now says we are not to have anything to do with my brother and his family. I’ve had to say this to my brother and he was shocked. I’m heartbroken.

We went through an IVF clinic and have a signed agreement that stipulates he is not responsible, financially or emotionally, for the recipient or the child. His name is not on the birth certificate.At the time of donation, our friend rejected an offer from another couple, because they wanted to be involved in the parenting, something our friend did not want. She went with our offer, as we said we would have as little or as much to do with the child as they wanted.Over the years, we have seen our friend and the child regularly.

Experience: I was hospitalised with a sex headache

Relationship
My partner’s head was between my legs when I felt a splitting pain at the base of my skull. It was as if someone was trying to crack it open with a teaspoon – as if it was a boiled egg about to spill its yolk. At 24 years old, I had chalked up my fair share of experience, but this was a new sensation at the height of orgasm. Even so, it was 3am and neither the worry nor the pain stopped me from falling asleep.The next morning, the pain was still there. It had dulled to an unpleasant throb. At the time, in 2017, I was between jobs, so I put it down to a stress-induced headache, but I booked an appointment with my GP just in case. I told the doctor about the previous night’s events and showed her where the pain was. Apparently, it is not uncommon for pressure to build up in the blood vessels leading to the brain during sex – but, on rare occasions, this can cause a berry aneurysm to burst, leading to a dangerous bleed. She told me this in a tone of alarm I had rarely heard from a doctor, then faxed the Royal Free hospital in London to let them know I would be coming in immediately....

A man who drops off the $45 box of pull-ups at my front door so I don’t have to load him up and go to the store. One who takes his son in 10 min notice far often than he should because I have too much to get done or just need a nap. This is a man who listens to me cry because I’m stressed out. This is a man who tells his son not to forget mommy’s boyfriend when he lists his favorite people off the top of his head…A man who rushes over because we got locked out of the house or spends his evening fixing something for us.

Real Men Discuss The Important Lessons Their Dads Taught Them

Fathers can be many things: involved, absent, loving, abusive, supportive or controlling. In some cases, they can be all of the above, representing different men at different moments in life. They can build a foundation through hard work, good parenting, financial support, too, shaping you into who you are by pushing you to overcome hurdles in your way due to their presence or absence.Regardless, one thing fathers often engage in is a sort of teaching process. There’s a sense that fatherly wisdom should be passed down, particularly when it comes to father-son relationships.Of course, these could be lessons dads explicitly lay out for their kids, like a mantra or a saying, or they could be things children learn just from observing. These lessons might even be something a father imparts by not doing — think of the way an overcritical father teaches his son to be more patient with his own children....

Was your mother a narcissist? And other questions a dating app should ask | Emma Brockes

Relationship
Summer makes some single people think of going on dates, and a slew of friends have recently signed up for dating apps. The “science” of the algorithms behind these services is always being updated but the underlying presumptions seem to stay broadly the same: assuming that it doesn’t all come down to the photo, you can find a good match by identifying the things you like, and finding someone who likes them too.“Like” in this context tends to stick to a few well-lit areas. “Jerry, let’s not tell our sad stories,” says Renée Zellweger in the famous line from Jerry Maguire – an assertion that, when the movie came out in 1996, struck me as the epitome of healthy adult dating etiquette and now strikes me as delusional. From a marketing perspective, it is impossible for a dating app to get too close to the truth about attraction – not because it comes from a place no online questionnaire can reach, but because a genuinely useful set of questions in this area would be almost too unpalatable to bear....

Thoughts On Being Our Real Selves And Why It Is Important To Show Our Scars

Relationship
What do we generally do when we go on a first date?Do we show up tired and shabby-looking, interrupt the other person and generally carry on as though we never left our living room? Are we obviously disinterested, checking our phones constantly and hurrying the other through their stories?Of course not! But if you do incorporate some of your usual behaviors into the polished, shellacked, sparkling version of yourself you are presenting to this new person, more power to you. People need to learn to love us for the bad with the good and not the other way around.It’s so much EASIER to fall for the good, though. It’s true…but it just sets you up for a relationship built on dishonesty, false hopes, shuttered dreams and a look you can’t possibly maintain once you’ve had any kind of physical intimacy whatsoever.

Singled out: why can't we believe unmarried, childless women are happy?

At the Hay festival late last month, I gave a talk about my new book, Happy Ever After, which discusses happiness data surrounding relationships. My conclusion – that single women might be healthier and happier than married women and married women with children – was met with surprise from many, delight from single women and shock and even outrage from other quarters, especially on social media. Many pointed to their own experience to criticise me, saying that they – or their wives – were happier now that they were married or parents than they were when they were single.

Though I can’t remember the very first moment or situation that sparked a sense of belongingness within me, I can vividly recall the many instances where I yearned to belong, and how it felt to fall short of belonging.

Is there one right way to cook a steak?

It’s also crucial that you understand how to properly cook various cuts of meat to your desired level of doneness, given that a few extra minutes on the grill can easily take a steak from medium-rare to medium-well.RELATED:Steak CutsSince there are so many things to keep in mind when cooking steak, we consulted with chefs and butchers from around the country and asked them for their thoughts on how to prep a big hunk of meat in the oven, on the stove and on the grill.

Rotondo was allegedly told by the higher-ups at JPMorgan Chase that this would not be at all possible. Rotondo said he was told that “Men, as biological fathers, were presumptively not the primary caregiver."Striking Rotondo as innately unfair and likely discriminatory, the financial crimes investigator quickly filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, claiming that he had been subjected to gender discrimination at his workplace.

Wisdom for happy, modern marriages | Letters

Relationship
What an interesting article by Hadley Freeman (Marriage isn’t the problem, it’s husbands, 30 May). I agree that for a marriage to be happy, it needs to be an equal partnership. The problem is, we learn how to behave from our parents, and other adults, showing us when we are children. A girl learns very early that she is expected to grow up and be like her mother (and other women), and she watches and learns, this before she is old enough to remember. Boys learn the same about growing up to be men; they see that they won’t be doing any childcare or managing the house, so they don’t need to learn how to do it.With some things, people notice when they are older that something isn’t fair and they decide, consciously, to do it differently when they grow up. But it would not help relationships if women had to teach their husbands how to look after the baby, how to wash up, and especially how to keep in mind all the chores that need to be done. Could men who want to change organise themselves into a group and arrange to be taught these things? Please don’t tell me women should do that for them! Henrietta Cubitt Cambridge...

Did you know that someone in the U.S. is sexually assaulted every 92 seconds? That eye-opening statistic, which comes from he Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network (RAINN), demonstrates just how prevalent sexual violence is today. While sexual assault can happen to anyone — regardless of age, race, religion or orientation – one thing that applies across nearly all cases is that it can have lasting effects on a survivor’s mental and emotional health, as well as their relationships. That’s why if your partner has experienced this kind of trauma, it’s crucial to educate yourself on how to be supportive. Everyone deals with the trauma in their own unique way. That said, a 2018 report published by Samuel Merritt University revealed that there are some common things many survivors struggle with: feelings of shame, guilt, denial, isolation, and difficulty trusting others and setting boundaries.

That’s right, my friends — your cheap, convenient rides are in danger of being cut-off if you continue to behave like turkey sandwiches.RELATED:Things That Separate Awesome Guys From Average JoesIt marks a change from years of limited consequences for Uber riders (other than being shamed by their much more polite pals) and brings them into line with drivers, who have always worked with the threat of having their access to the app cut off if their rating gets too low (Under 4.6, it was revealed in 2015.

How to Cheat-Proof Your Relationship, Explained

Relationship
Cheating is a complicated thing.While there are lots of generalized things that constitute cheating, people approach them in different ways. For some, the worst thing you could do is have an emotional affair, while for others, secret feelings would be much less bad than actual sex. There are also things like one-night stands, paying sex workers, secret sexting, and even microcheating.RELATED: Everything You Need to Know About Cheating in a RelationshipIn short, there’s no one-size-fits-all definition to cheating. The real truth of cheating is that the person who’s been cheated on knows that they have because their partner’s actions left them feeling shocked, betrayed and vulnerable.But whatever you consider to be cheating, one thing everyone probably agrees on is they don’t want it to happen in their relationship. Particularly, you don’t want the other person to cheat, but rare is the person who begins a relationship hoping they themselves will be the one to cheat. And yet, it happens every day to someone....

7 Mistakes to Avoid Making During a First-Time Hookup

Relationship
Despite a change in sexual attitudes leading to a rise in casual sex, hookup culture hasn’t exactly been a pleasure-filled paradise for everyone.Straight women, in particular, often complain that having casual sex with a guy is likely to be an underwhelming experience, and the data bears that out. Studies show that men are much more likely to orgasm when having a first-time hookup with a new partner, leaving researchers to coin a term (the “orgasm gap”) to describe the phenomenon.Due to unrealistic lessons learned from mainstream pornography, as well as the general societal narrative around sex positioning men as sexual takers rather than givers, it seems that guys are often focused on their own pleasure (particularly in hookup scenarios) to the exclusion of all else — including their partner’s basic comfort levels....

Marriage and children don’t always make women happy. Who knew? | Suzanne Moore

Some of my best friends are in a subgroup: “unmarried and childless women”.

Well, knock me down with a Fetherlight condom. Who knew? Except the many women who actually have quite nice lives?We are told that marriage, usually of the heterosexual, monogamous kind, is the key to intimacy, if not ecstasy, and that it is somehow good for our health.

My ex was charming but critical. Now I’ve lost all my confidence | Dear Mariella

Relationship
The dilemma I’m a woman in my early 30s and six months ago I was dumped. Our relationship was long distance, developed quickly and was the most intense of my life. He is 10 years my senior and is a unique, charismatic, charming man who makes a good impression on everyone. In private, however, he could be unkind, judgmental and emotionally distant. He could also be demanding, controlling and critical. During our relationship he pushed me to enter his world of ideas, books, films and art. If I didn’t show enough interest, he would become disappointed and irritable. He would often ask me to articulate my thoughts and tell him what I needed, but I felt put on the spot and could never seem to act decisively in those moments – including in the bedroom. Now I am suffering a crisis of confidence as I struggle to define what makes me interesting. I can’t seem to separate my own interests from his – and they all remind me of him.

I often start my blogs by telling a story, recalling some personal event that taught me something, and passing it along to you. I really love to share my stories.
