Bars and clubs are still the best suggested places to meet all kinds of women. Given the ambiance, the sexy flash of colored lights, drink in hand, all add to the excitement in meeting a prospect for long term date. Sort of like the “hunter looking for its prey”. The moment a guy steps in a bar or club, he is in for the killing.
While guys like to think meeting women in a place like this is always exciting, not all women do. In fact women don’t always go to a bar or club to meet guys. Women enjoy going out with their girlfriends without must-meet-a-guy in mind. When they act cool and seem to be enjoying themselves, then take it at face value; it’s not always a hint that you should read as “come and get me”. But even if meeting someone is not the woman’s priority at the moment, being in bar or club opens her mind just a little bit that she may indeed meet someone there eventually.
As for you, approaching a woman that interests you is still a good thing; if you don’t, you won’t be able to break that “fear of rejection pattern” that keeps you from even trying. After all, you came there to meet someone; why get stuck on your fear. The first thing you need to remember is that if you come on too strong or fresh, or worse as women would put it, creepy, expect the woman to come against you as defensive. Don’t take it against yourself or on her; something just may not be right – it could be the timing, the line you threw in, the mood at the moment, or it could be anything.
By simply keeping in mind how women’s mind tick in a bar or club, you’re on your way to a much successful interaction with them. Here are the few things you need to know about women in bars and clubs:
They are not always there to catch a prey or be the prey. Approaching her to make your move could limit her time spent on friends. Observe first from a distance how the rest of her friends are doing. If you see that they are entertaining hook ups, then chances are, this woman that you like may also do so with you.
It is not always their job to be polite to you. The moment you cross her line with a less than intellectual approach, expect her to give you the most annoying look or oftentimes, an insulting remark. Unless you know that you came as gentle as you can then it could be that this is her nature. If this is so, simply walk away and move on to the next.
They relax only when they feel they can trust you. Women have mastered the art of trusting their instinct when it comes to meeting men in bars. So just act natural and give her a reason to be interested in what you have to say.
Choosing to tread the road to healthy living sometimes do not take a grip on our psyche when we are still young and strong. It is only when we feel the pain in our joints or suffer chest pains and frequent headaches and backaches that we realize that what our parents and grandparents have warned us about when we were young are sinking in. Often, still, despite the realization, our lack of self-control takes the lead and the desire to change bad health habits stays in the background as wishful thinking.
Know the Effects of Bad Health Habits
Effects of bad health habits are more common than the effects of good health habits since there are more people suffering of different ailments than those who are having no problem at all even during old age. Even as young as 40, it is common that you can hear people complain of painful kneecaps and knuckles. Many are suffering from asthma even when it did not exist during their preteen years. With more children getting obese even at grade school level, these are the same children who will suffer heart ailments when they become adults.
Know the Benefits of Good Health Habits
If you have experienced different pains due to your own doing, losing those aches and pains is the benefit you will be able to notice. Sometimes hearing and learning from others is not enough. Often, human beings need to learn the hard way. If you can imagine how good it is not to suffer such ailments, the better if you can act on it. Would you not want to reach old age, into your 60s, 70s and 80s without having the need to be taken care of in a nursing home? Would you not want to be walking or even joining a marathon from time to time? Would you not want to be playing with your grandchildren who are more likely running around? Would you not want to be free from taking different pills just to alleviate certain pain and maintain certain conditions just to feel normal?
Basic Concepts for Good Health
There are just a few concepts to think of to be in good health. Sticking to these will make sure your future will be a lot less painful if not totally painless:
1. Get at least 7-9 hours of sleep, not less, not more. Make sure you are already asleep by 10pm so that you can maximize the night for your body to repair. Make sure also that the room is dark to produce more melatonin which is helpful to prevent cancer to build up.
2. Eat nutritious food, avoid junk. There are 2 kinds of nutrients: micronutrients and macronutrients. What you need is micronutrients which come from raw vegetables, fruits and raw nuts. All the rest is macronutrients which you can take very minimally. As far as junk, avoid them, including drinks with processed sugar.
3. Exercise to keep your joints, muscles and your whole body regularly “oiled.” If you do not, you can be sure that when you reach old age, you will be suffering from different levels of pain and movement will be restricted. It is possible that you can only stay within your bed.
It’s a Choice
You need to desire the benefits of good health habits and get rid of the bad. Make a list of what you would like to do in your 50s to 80s should you reach that age and what experiences you wanted to avoid. By contrasting the differences, you are more likely to stick to what is good for you.
When people are trying to reduce their expenses, the most common thing that they often do is to cut their bills in half. However, not many people know how to cut their bills efficiently. Most of them are able to cut their expenses at the beginning, but as time passes by, they start to get back to their old habits and their original expenses again. So, how should they arrange their financial planning and expenses?
Setting up the Planning
People need to remember that there are lots of costs and departments that they can cut and reduce in their expenses. For example, when managing a household activity, people will be dealing with the electricity, gas, or water bills. They will also deal with gas expenses, fuel spending, grocery shopping bills, and so many more. When people want to increase their income and profit and they are trying to manage their financial stability, they can actually cut off the expenses in groceries, regular bills, shopping, and even cell phone spending. When they are able to look at their overall income and outcome management, they should be able to focus on the things they need to reduce and the things that can’t be reduced at all.
The first thing that people need to keep in mind is that they need to differentiate needs and wants. Needs are the items that must be fulfilled in order to survive on daily basis; while wants are basically things that they want but they don’t always need. For instance, people always need food because it allows them to survive and to do their daily activities. However, they don’t need clothes or fashion accessories because they are still able to survive and live although they don’t have those items. In short, people need to be smart and careful when they want to decide about spending their money. Paying the gas, water, or even credit card bills is important, but deciding to buy a new car is not important at all. They should be able to sort that out.
The Handy Tips and Tricks
When people want to cut off their expenses in half, here are the things that they can do:
Know about their financial condition in details. Gather around information from the bank statement, bills, and also the financial records.
Divide the expenses within different categories, such as utility bills, food, grocery, mortgage, and so many more. Calculate them in total and make notes on the things they can reduce. For example, when they feel that they can cut back the grocery or the phone service, make notes on the side part of each category.
When they are totaling their expenses, they need to cut it in half. By doing so, they will be encouraged to reach the goal of spending in half. Of course, people can’t really achieve the half spending cost perfectly, but they can at least try and reduce their expenses.
Consider about using public transportation when managing the transportation cost. If the cost of driving their own car is higher than using the public transportation, they may have to switch.
Be realistic and true to themselves. They also need to be discipline about managing their spending and expenses, if they want their program to run successfully.
Social media has redefined the world today like no other. It has bridged the gap of web browsing and social interaction. In the age of the Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites, you can’t help but wonder what the world would be like if it was completely eliminated. Social media has made everything much easier through instant communication and social networking that it is almost impossible to disregard its importance. What better way to utilize social media by finding jobs that are relevant and aspirational as you’ve wanted it to be.
Since almost all working people are using the internet most of the time, most of them use social media not just for their personal social life but for work purposes as well. Social media has been a useful platform when it comes to communication between jobs lightning-fast. If you are looking for you dream job and are at the comforts of your home and internet, here are some ways to find a job using social media:
Browse Through Social Networking
Nothing beats the power of social networking. The easiest way to find a job is through social networking, may it be through Facebook or Google Plus. Add friends and friends of your friends and try to see if they post job-related offers on the internet. Most of the time, your friends and their friends (and friends of their friends) have their companies force them to look for job applicants through social media. And if you are lucky enough or perseverant enough to look for these job posts, then you might land on your dream job in no time.
Connect with Strangers through Social Media
This may sound odd at first, but perseverance does pay off. Utilize the power of search engines and try to look for the companies you would want to work for. From there, try to find people who work in these companies and try to establish a link between you and them. Often times, this can all be done through Facebook, and it wouldn’t hurt to strike a friendly conversation with a stranger. Make sure that the one you’re connecting with is assured that he/she is safe and you are only looking for a job in a company. You can then ask for any job hiring and if you do, make sure that you ask for details that are relevant only to the job that you are looking for.
Post an Advertisement
When someone hears the word advertisement, normal people would think of spending money. But through social media, posting an advertisement of your qualifications is proven to be effective (and not to mention free). You can do this by posting ads on Facebook or Twitter, or if you want to go extreme, through Youtube videos. Make sure that once you post your details on the Internet, your information is kept private; only the details of your job preferences are displayed. That way, you get to protect your identity from identity-thieves and still manage to land on your dream job.
