For Him: Stop hanging out with Women and start Dating them

Image

Over the past few years, many social observers have noted that young adults are dating less. Instead, dating is being replaced by “hanging out” with members of the opposite sex. Dating and hanging out are two completely different things.

Hanging out consists of people getting together in groups and doing stuff together. It could be going to a club, a restaurant, or just staying home and playing Wii. The atmosphere is relaxed and relations among opposite sexes never rises above the level of friendship (or friendship with benefits). There is nothing wrong with hanging out, but it is not a replacement for dating.

Dating consists of pairing off with someone in a temporary commitment so you can get to know the person better and perhaps start a long term relationship with them.

Why the decline in dating?

There are probably lots of factors that have contributed to the decline of dating amongst young adults. Here are few possible ones:

1. Young adults don’t like to commit. It seems like people in my generation aren’t big on making commitments to people or to organizations. Generation Y is too busy trying to “find themselves” in order to commit to anybody or anything. Companies have complained about the turn over rate of Generation Y. Companies invest lots of money training new employees only to have them leave after two years so they can find a new job. This reluctance to commit has carried over to the interaction between the sexes. Young adults don’t want to be tied down to someone just in case they get an itch to go on a backpacking trip to Europe.

2. The internet has retarded Generation Y’s social skills. Instead of telling a person directly that they’re interested in them by asking them on a date, Generation Y sends Crush alerts on Facebook. While the internet has made connecting with people easier, it has also made us lazier at establishing meaningful relationships. If you’re over 18 and you’re still using Facebook applications to let someone know you’re interested in them, you need to be punched in the face.

3. Feminism. Before I receive the wrath of all the feminists telling me it’s a typical man thing to blame women for the decline in dating, I ask that you hear me out. I think feminism is great. It’s great that women can choose to have a career, be a stay-at-home mom, or do both.

But it does make things confusing for men. Navigating relations among the sexes is a bit more tricky today. Men have all these questions go through their head: Who asks? If I ask, will she think I’m too forward? Who pays for the date? Do we split the bill? All these uncertainties cause men to avoid dating altogether and opt for hanging out with women instead.

4. Men today are wussies. Men today aren’t very resilient. They don’t know how to handle rejection or failure, so they avoid rejection or failure by not asking women out on dates.

Why date?

A lot of men today don’t seem to believe it, but getting hitched to the right woman is a very desirable thing.

So while there is nothing wrong with hanging out, it’s not a replacement for dating. Dating is the pathway to finding your true love and eventually settling down and getting married. Marriage is a one on one relationship, so you need to start getting to know women on a one on one basis. You might be hanging out with her and your friends right now, but if you don’t take her on date, she’ll forever be just your friend. So, start dating and stop hanging out. It really is not that hard to get a date with a woman. Here are some guidelines to remember as you take hanging out up a level to dating.

Resurrect Dating

So, you’re ready to start dating and stop hanging out. It really is not that hard to get a date with a woman. Here are some guidelines to remember as you take hanging out up a level to dating.

1. She wants you to ask. Despite the rhetoric you hear about the liberated woman, women still appreciate it when a guy asks her out on a date. They like when men take the initiative. I’ve heard lots of successful young professional women lament the fact that men don’t ask them out. They’re beautiful, smart, and charming, but don’t have a man. Be a man and ask these women out.

2. Asking is easy. Asking a woman out on a date isn’t rocket science. When you ask, though, do it in person or over the phone. If you’re poking a woman you’re interested in on Facebook, you lose any credibility as a man.

3. Keep dates simple. Dates don’t have to be huge, expensive affairs. Keep it simple. If you want to keep things informal, ask her out for lunch or coffee. If you want a more romantic date, invite her over to your place and make dinner for her. She’ll be impressed that you know how to cook. The whole point of dating is to get some one on one interaction with a person to find out if she is someone you’d like to start a long term relationship with. Simple and frequent dates will assist you in this.

4. Prepare for rejection. Face it. Not every woman you ask out is going to say yes. Prepare for that. It’s no big deal if she says no. Think about it. You’re no worse off getting rejected than you were before you asked. You didn’t have a date with her before, you don’t have a date with her now. Your situation has not changed.

5. Just do it, damn it. So what are you waiting for? Quit reading this post right now and pick up your cell phone. Call a woman and ask her on a date. Stop hanging out and start dating. Stop being scared of commitment. Commitment is liberating, not confining

Kindle Fire 2 Announcement on September 6th?

Image

Amazon has called for a press conference in Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California on Thursday September 6th 2012 and there is of course mass speculation that this is will be probably include announcements about new Kindle models including hopefully the successor to the Kindle Fire.

It would be good from Amazon to get their press release out before Apple may unveil a 7″ iPad Mini the following week, but to really WOW users they are going to have to show the something that will give Amazon Kindle Fire a competitive edge over the Google Nexus Tablet which currently holds the price/power sweet spot standard.

Top features wanted in a Kindle Fire 2?

BlueTooth

Hello, no way to use earbuds wirelessly?  Or a wireless keyboard to make typing a bit easer, you know this is a huge disadvantage and one that has to be rectified.

MicroSD

This is something that will be of huge benefit, and they can just allow MicroSD to store video/images…etc freeing up the Kindle Fire memory for apps and games.  Bottom line, there needs to be a way to add more storage.

Faster Processor / GPU

The Kindle Fire is sluggish and having just a few processes open can cause some pretty noticeable lag.  An updated processor / GPU set is definitely in order to keep up with compatible games that keep getting more CPU/GPU intensive.

Higher Resolution

Rumors have it that a higher resolution screen may be in order, plus one with better technology for dealing with direct sunlight which is something that makes the regular Kindle with it’s e-Ink so magnificent for those who love to read under daylight at parks or near windows.

Better Content

There is no doubt that Amazon opening their own game studio recently will help create more content for their Kindle Fire line, combine that with the fact that Amazon is far ahead of Google in terms of offering video content and they may actually offer some features/content/media that isn’t as easy to get or integrated with a standard Android product.

Smoother Silk

The Silk browser was fantastic in theory but was plagued with problems around flash support and not being nearly as fast as a “cloud caching browser” should have been.  Hopefully Silk can run smoother, faster and really improve the overall browsing experience on the Kindle Fire.

What features do you want to see in a next generation Kindle Fire that would help give it an edge against the Google Nexus tablet?

For the Guys: Approaching the lady of your dreams

ImageThe old saying, “The Knight In Shining Armor” still exists today like it did in the medieval times. Only difference is that we’re no longer on a horse and wearing our metal. These days it’s more of a male chivalry which we all men should show if we want to attract our woman. Women are always looking for their knight in shining armor all the time. It is in them to want to be rescued. So whenever there is a chance to help a woman in need, never hesitate. Just do it!

We may not be attracted to the woman we help, but you never know if there is another woman around the corner watching your good deeds. What is important is that this has to be real, a habit you gradually develop over time. You really should not do it just to attract a woman. The more you give, the more you get back. Just don’t expect it right away or else you’ll be disappointed.

So in future when ever you see a woman who either, needs help or rescue from a situation, go for it. Rescuing a woman is one of the surest ways to win their heart. Whether it’s from another man or an embarrassing situation, find a way to save the day and very likely you’ve immediately also found a way to her heart.

Woman unconsciously also like to see that you have good relationships with other women around your age because it shows that you are also liked by other women. She’ll find this attractive.

Never approach a woman too directly and stare down at her as she’ll begin to find you too intimidating or even creepy. An indirect approach is best. Try to also stay away from the usual pick-up lines such as the weather, buying her a drink etc.

You are much better off relating to her on some level. Try to find a common interest.

Its best to therefore approach women as a friend or casual acquaintance as this gives you the best chance to get to know her a little bit more and quickly find a common ground of interest. This can then be further developed into a full blown conversation. It also puts pressure off you trying to score on first attempt with expectations of a long lasting romance or a one night stand and then feeling stupid if you didn’t succeed.

Take your time, and continue practicing. This is the only way you’ll gain confidence over time. The more you do it, the more you’ll feel comfortable picking up women.

In the mean time, Good Luck!

How to Flirt With a Woman – Listen To What Women Say

Image

Part of being good at flirting with a woman is being good at listening to what she has to say. The more you listen to her, the more you will be able to find out what makes her laugh, what makes her smile, and most importantly… what makes her feel sexually attracted to a man. Women are right. Men are not very good at listening and although women usually say that in the context of complaining about their man, what men should pick up on is that they are telling you one of the most crucial pieces to the puzzle of flirting with a woman.

There is something else, though about listening to a woman that you should pay attention to. And that is this. When seeking advice on what women respond to, it’s good to get some input from other women. There is this idea that women don’t give out good advice and I really don’t find that to be true at all. Most women do have a hard time telling you what works on them, that is true. What they are usually good at though, is telling you what works on OTHER women. So, if you have some female friends that you can get some input from, go ahead and get it.

Why should you listen to what a woman says about flirting with other women?

When talking about themselves, most women will be pretty protective so they are not going to spill the beans on what they get turned on by. That’s just the way she goes. On the other hand, when they are talking about what works on a woman they don’t even know, they usually don’t have that urge to be protective. So, what you wind up getting is some pretty good insight that comes straight from woman.

Ask her questions and analyze her answers…

Another good way to get better at flirting with a woman is to ask a female friend that you have questions about a guy she has dated and why she was attracted to him. Now, she will probably not tell you everything, but she probably will reveal some clues. And that is where you need to analyze what she says. Just because you don’t hear her say straight out that this is what worked on her, it does not mean that she is not telling you what really did work. Most of the time, she will say it in such a way that you kind of have to see around what she is saying to see the real truth.

360º of Sound – The Bell Tweeter

I’m sure from the looks of it, you could decipher how the Bell Tweeter works. Sound radiates 360º from the cone. Change the volume by spinning the body. There are some definite advantages to this setup over the traditional ones, namely being able to evenly fill a room with sound. With multiple bells, one could easily adapt their current setup to accommodate audio delivered in every direction.

Praise and Blame Are All the Same

ImageOne of the most unavoidable life lessons is having to deal with the disapproval of others. Praise and blame are all the same is a fancy way of reminding yourself of the old cliche’ that you’ll never be able to please all the people all the time.Even in a landslide election victory in which a candidate secures 55 percent of the vote, he or she is left with 45 percent of the population that wishes someone else were the winner. Pretty humbling, isn’t it?

Our approval rating from family, friends, and the people we work with isn’t likely to be much higher. The truth is, everyone has their own set of ideas with which to evaluate life, and our ideas don’t always match those of other people. For some reason,however, most of us struggle against this inevitable fact. We get angry,hurt, or otherwise frustrated when people reject our ideas, tell us no, or give us some other form of disapproval.

The sooner we accept the inevitable dilemma of not being able to win the approval of everyone we meet, the easier our live will become. When you expect to be dished our your share of disapproval instead of struggling against this fact, you’ll develop a helpful perspective to assist your life journey. Rather than feeling rejected by disapproval, you can remind yourself, ” Here it is again. That’s okay.” You can learn to be pleasantly surprised, even grateful when you receive the approval you’re hoping for.

I find that there are many days when i experience both praise and blame.Someone says what a nice guy I am, someone else thinks I’m selfish because I don’t return his phone call. This back and forth, good and bad, approval and disapproval is a part of everyone’s life. I’m the first to admit that I always prefer approval over disapproval. It feels better and it’s certainly easier to deal with. The more content I’ve become, however, the less I depend on it for my sense of well-being.
