How Much Eye Contact is Too Much on a First Date?

Some relationship gurus believe that a person's eye contact should be no longer than four to five seconds. Gazing at your partner for a longer time during your first date can be extremely uncomfortable. Gazing also makes you seem creepy or strange. 

Eye contact is a great way for you to communicate with the person you're dating. This is non-verbal communication that you can use to your advantage. So, if you're a shy or nervous person, this is a social skill that you should practice before you go on your first date.  The more you practice, the more relaxed and confident you will feel when you're interacting with men you're dating.

3 Tips for a Successful Date

Your first date can be nerve-wracking and extremely stressful, especially if it's been a while since you've been on the dating market. If you've been divorced and want to start dating again, you will need to follow the right tips that may help you to have a successful dating experience.

Following a guide helps you to minimize your anxiety. Try these three steps to make a good impression on your dating partner.

1. Be Honest

Always be honest with your date. Don't try to pretend to be someone you're not. Being dishonest with your date can prevent you from establishing a good bond with someone. If you don't like your date, you should also be honest. If you don't think you're compatible, let your date know, and don't lead him on.

2. Don't Ask Too Many Questions

No man wants to be grilled on a date. You may have a thousand questions you want to ask your date.  However, you should go about this the right way.  Asking too many questions can annoy your date or prevent them from having a connection with you. Try to develop a technique to smoothly ask questions when you're conversing with your dating partner. 

3. Always Make Eye Contact

Maintaining eye contact with your date shows your interest and helps you to have a good connection. Your eye contact should be natural when you're interacting with your date. Try to maintain eye contact for at least a few seconds during your conversations. This helps you to send a positive message to your date and for you to have a pleasant time with each other.

Being nervous is normal for your first date. However, these ideas can help you to calm your nerves and for you to feel more confident about your special date. The good part about dating is that you have limitless options.

If you did not form a connection with one guy, you have the choice to go on other dates. The more dates you experience, the less stress you will feel. Being calm and confident can help you to have fun dates and for you to eventually find the ideal partner that's compatible with you.

Never Give Your All to a Man

Always try to protect your body and mind. The best freedom you have is to love yourself and to have independence. Don't lose yourself in a man!

Never love a man more than he loves you! Your relationship might not last long if you have more feelings for your partner than he has for you. Putting your all into the relationship does not mean that he will reciprocate.

 You should not have to sacrifice yourself or let yourself go when you're in a relationship.

What are some things that you should never give up for a man?

 independence

morals

friends

family

your identity

self respect

your career and dreams

If he's not expressing his love freely, then he's probably not the right guy for you. So, don't stress yourself out or try to beg him to love you. Don't let him treat you like you're not special or worthy of his time.  Instead, you should focus on yourself. Find some free time to pamper yourself at the spa and reconnect with your feminine energy. You can also surround yourself with positive energy from your friends and family members.

Once a Cheater, Always a Cheater: 4 Reasons Why Men Cheat

You may think you're dating a  fantastic guy until you find out that he's a cheating scumbag! 

Why did he cheat? Being beautiful and having a wonderful personality will not prevent him from cheating. Try not to blame yourself when your partner cheats, even if you're doing everything to please him. No matter what you do or how you look, you won't be able to stop him from cheating or staring at other women when you go out. 

Statistically, more men are known for having the propensity to cheat. It is known that 20 to 80 percent of men will have the incline to cheat. Why do they engage in this behavior? Here are 4 common reasons why men cheat.

1. They're Not Mature

Serial cheaters have the reputation for being emotionally immature and they could also be self-centered. They might also have a lack of self-control and unable to discuss their feelings with their partners. These are critical factors that will prevent them from remaining faithful in a relationship or marriage.

2.  Depression and Anxiety

Men struggling with depression and anxiety have the propensity to cheat on their partners. Cheating is a way for them to get relief from the mental issues they're dealing with.

3. They're No Longer in Love With You

 If a man is no longer in love with you, he will feel the need to cheat. He could also feel unfulfilled with the relationship he has with you. Your man could be in a situation where he feels stuck with you and unable to end the relationship. 

4. They Love the Excitement and Chase

Men in general love to experience the excitement of chasing women. If they see a woman they like, they will normally want to explore that feeling. They might also love the challenge of getting women to like them.

Is Your Man Faithful?

As you can see, men cheat for many reasons. So, even if you think you're in a great relationship, you may have to deal with this problem and determine the right steps you should take.

Some men are not wired to be monogamous. They will drain the life and self-esteem out of you if you allow it. Never force yourself to remain in an unhealthy relationship. Protect your energy and mentality by trying to connect with someone who knows how to treat you with respect.

You Don’t Have to Look Like a Goddess to Prevent Him From Cheating

"Oh wow! My babe had her hair and nails done. She does everything for me, so I won't cheat. I'll stay faithful." Do men think this way?

Not! 

Taking pride in your appearance is important, but this does not prevent a dog from being a dog.  So, let's stop blaming the woman when a guy cheats. A guy's infidelity is a reflection of his lack of discipline, self-control, as well as his sense of entitlement. Did you know that some men feel they're entitled to multiple women?

Men will do whatever they want to do. They cheat because they want to! Period.

1.Your beauty, fancy clothes, loyalty, and submission won't prevent him from cheating.

2. Your femininity will not stop a man who is willing to cheat.

3. Cooking, cleaning, or being his slave won't prevent him from cheating.  

4. Not wearing makeup and being religious won't stop him from cheating.

5. Getting pregnant and having children won't prevent cheating.

There's nothing you can do to prevent a man from stepping out. However, you DO have the power to decide whether to leave or stay in the relationship. Step into your power, girl. 

If your boyfriend is cheating, I would suggest that you make a clean break from your relationship. When you're dating, you have the convenience to move forward without the stress factors of being attached to the man through marriage, a baby, or connected to a man financially or emotionally. 

However, when you're married, there are more things at stake. Some of these may include a house, money, car etc. This makes it more difficult for some married women to walk away. They will usually feel stuck.

You will feel pain from the relationship you had with your boyfriend, but life goes on. When you're just dating, you have the freedom to restart your whole life. So, there's no need for you to put up with a cheating boyfriend. It's fun to date and interacting with different people. You don't have to feel stuck with someone who's disrespecting you. If he's lying or cheating, you can make a hasty exit! You have control of your dating life.

This allows you to open up your options, to find out things about the man you're dating. This helps you to identify red flags before you become intimate or too invested in the relationship. 

Dating gives you the convenience to learn as much as you can about his past relationships, do background checks, and avoid men with a history of cheating. You get to narrow down your choices and to decide which man you should continue dating.

Whether dating or married, I would encourage every woman to step away from a cheating or abusive partner. NEVER be a doormat to a man.  He's  not worth the stress and pains. I would offer the advice of loving yourself, healing from your traumas, and living for yourself during and after a relationship.

When Men Cheat 

Do you have suspicions that your man is cheating on you? Once a man cheats, you could have a hard time focusing on your relationship and moving forward. His cheating is an issue that could also cause you to end the relationship. I support women who make this decision. 

If my man is cheating, it will be difficult for me to move past his infidelity. 

If he's easily tempted by other women, I would not feel comfortable being with him. Even if I forgave him for cheating, the problem could still persist. In some cases, counseling or therapy might not be helpful. Yes, professional help is beneficial for some couples. However, if a man is not willing to change his cheating ways, then professional counseling may not be the best remedy. There's nothing you can do to restore your original love.

Get Support from Friends

When you're feeling hurt, angry, and depressed, you need support from your friends. You need your close friends nearby to talk to or to lean on for support. You'll need your friends and family to help you get over your breakup. They should always be around you to help you take your mind off the stress you're feeling.

Release Your Pain

Don't keep your pains bottled up inside. This makes it more difficult for you to get over your breakup. Don't be afraid to express your emotions when the pain is too much for you to bear. 

Start a Hobby

Find a new hobby that brings you joy and helps you to feel good about yourself. You can take a dance class, start a podcast, join a martial arts class or an art class. There are so many productive hobbies that you can take up whenever you have some extra time. After a painful breakup, hobbies can help you to stay distracted.

Getting over a man you love takes time, so don't try to force yourself to jump back into another relationship. You need lots of time to heal, to get over your hurt, and to balance your mind. Trying different techniques is very beneficial to your healing process and may help you to be a better, happier person.
