Camping- The Ultimate Romantic Get Away

Background Check

When you think of romantic getaways, it doesn’t take much to guess what’s on our mind. Venice, Paris, five star hotels, maybe access to your own swimming pool. Even in these, more austere times, a camping trip probably doesn’t make it the top five of your fantasy destination. Well, today we’re going to change your mind, and prove definitively that packing up your camping equipment and heading into the great beyond can make for the most romantic weekend there is.

Reason One: Sleeping Under the Stars

Paris may have some pretty amazing night time views, but even it can’t compete with a clear night sky once you get clear of the light pollution. Think candle-lit dinners are romantic? How about curling up together under a blanket next to a campfire?

Then, when it gets cold and you want to get to bed, you can’t get much more snug than curling up in double sleeping bags.

Reason Two: No Itinerary

If you go on a city break you’re going to want to see all that city’s famous landmarks. If you go to Paris and don’t see the Eiffel Tower, and the Arc De Triomphe, and the Louvre, and Parc Asterix, then why go at all? The danger is, in your bid to cram everything you possibly can into your weekend, you can actually end up stressing yourself out, and not really finding the time to just enjoy yourself.

Getting out into the country for a few days is a great way to leave everything behind. With just each other for company, and few landmarks more must-see than the country pub a short walk away, you can really remind yourself just what it is about each other’s company you love so much.

Reason Three: Things To Do

On the other hand, despite city breaks being absolutely packed with must-see tourist attractions, after a day or two you may come to realise you’re not actually doing anything. You go to the thing, you look at the thing, then maybe take a picture of the thing. Afterwards you can get lunch somewhere.

Paradoxically, out in the middle of nowhere you can find plenty to do. While even the most basic activities like putting tents up or making a campfire can be great things for couples to do together, once you go further afield the countryside offers all sorts of opportunities for entertainment. Rock climbing and canoeing are both great fun and can give you a real sense of achievement, while if you can get a fishing permit you can have all the fun of just relaxing and watching view, with the potential bonus of free dinner at the end of it.

It’s one thing going somewhere together, it’s another thing doing something together, and it can give you memories to treasure.

Reason Four: You Can Let Your Hair Down

When you’re living in a tent, and only have access to the campsites bathroom facilities, it’s impossible to keep up the immaculately stylish outfits and perfect hair that you’re normally known for. This may actually be a good thing. Letting your hair down for a few days in each other’s company is a great way to build intimacy, and make yourself a bit more comfortable around each other.

Reason Five: It’s Just The Two of You

These days it’s rare that you’re ever really alone with someone. Even if there are just two of you in the room, there’s the phone line, your mobile phone, and through your mobile access to your emails and your twitter account and your facebook page.

Dating During a Divorce – Pros and Cons

Can I date while going through a divorce?

One of the first questions that people want an answer to when getting divorced is whether or not they can date while going through a divorce. The answer to this question is not easy. There are many factors that are going to impact whether dating during a divorce is appropriate or not.

When You Have Children

If you are dealing with both children and divorce then dating during the divorce process may or may not be appropriate. The first thing that you have to look at is how much time you have available. Your kids are going to need more of your time during the divorce, you still need to keep up with your work responsibilities and you will have extra responsibilities related to finding a new place to live and getting your single life set up. Most people going through a divorce and who also have kids just don’t have the time to date.

Another issue you will want to look at is your pre-divorce situation. If you go from sharing a home with your spouse directly to the divorce process then dating during this process is most likely a bad idea. You need time to transition between married person and divorced person. On the other hand, if you have been separated for a while and already have separate lives established then dating during the divorce process is possible.

The final issue relates to how you want to be viewed during the divorce process. Some marriages have pre-nuptial agreements that can penalize you for having extra-marital affairs. While these terms may not apply to relationships that occur after a separation, it is generally a good idea to avoid dating in these cases until the divorce has been finalized.

Smart Divorce

When You Don’t Have Children

When you don’t have children the issue of dating during a divorce is slightly more simple. Since you do not have to worry about how your kids will respond to a new relationship and since you do not have to worry about spending enough time with your kids, dating is more of a possibility. However, you still need to think about your situation before jumping back into the dating pool.

Again you will want to look at how dating fits into your schedule and life during a divorce. A divorce is stressful even when you don’t have children together. Legal proceedings not only take your time and resources, but they also can have an impact on your personality.

If you have been separated for a while and you have the time and resources to date then it is up to you whether you want to date or not before your divorce is finalized. You may find that some people are not interested in dating someone going through a divorce, while others will not care as long as you are in the process of getting divorced. The final deciding factor will be your eagerness to date. If you are ready to date then by all means date, but do not rush the process.

Conclusion

Dating during a divorce can complicate things during an already complicated period of your life. Generally it is better to wait until your divorce is finalized before you start looking for romance. However, some divorces take months if not years to finalize. If you have established your new life already and are in the process of getting divorced, and if you have the time and resources to search for love, then this is a call that only you can make.

College Girls: Don’t Fall for a Player!

When you are in college, you are probably faced with the decision to date someone. Dating is something that can be pretty hard. Once you’ve met someone that you like though, it can be very easy to get caught up in the moment and want to be with someone for the long haul. He might be perfect in every way, he knows what to say, what to wear, and you want him all to yourself. But, you need to be wary of a guy like that, how do you know that he isn’t just a player, looking to “get some”? Sure, it might a damper on your romantic thoughts, but you don’t want to be crushed by a guy because he is a player. Here are some signs that the guy you might be crushing on is a player.

1. He has a lot of girl friends. It’s fine for a guy to have girls that are friends. Don’t you have guy friends? But, when he’s got so many girl friends that they seem to completely overshadow your relationship with him, you need to take a step back and evaluate.

2. He’s different with his friends. Sure, everyone acts differently when they are with their friends, but if your guy is completely opposite, you need to understand why.

3. He’s very cocky. It’s fine for a guy to be comfortable with who he is, but many players are extremely confident, it’s sign he’s a player.

4. He doesn’t ask you about your life. Many players don’t seem to care about anyone other than themselves. If your guy isn’t asking about you, but is more interested in making out―you’ve got a problem.

5. He texts you at all hours of the night. Sure, it might be cute to get a morning text from him, but if you are getting texts at 3 or 4 in the morning, chances are he’s out doing something. Ask him why he needs to text you at those crazy hours in the night.

If the guy that you like has these qualities, drop him like he’s hot! It’s better to get out of a relationship now rather than “waiting it out”. It’s only going to break your heart when he decides that he’s on to something new. Arm yourself with this knowledge and find a guy that isn’t a player and is a great guy.

The Perfect Blind Date – How To Plan For Success

So many people are very cautious about going on a blind date. Maybe it is because of how dangerous the world can be or maybe people are just too scared to live a little. Some people think that some people only go on blind dates because they are unattractive or cannot get a date otherwise.

If you do not know what a blind date is, it is a date where either party is unaware of what the person looks like and they do not know another about the other person. Sometimes you might not even know what the persons name is if they used fake names online or something. This could have been setup in multiple ways. Some which include dating agencies or by friend or family members.

There are many locations you can choose to have a blind date. Most often it would be setup as a dinner date because it is mostly all about getting to know the person in a setting where there is not much distraction and it is not dark so you can see one another.

You could go on a date completely blind however it would be best if the two people have at least spoken on the phone or maybe messaged each other online. This is fairly important so you can at least get all the dumb questions out of the way first and you have an idea of what this person likes. This is when you would want to agree on the place to go and find out what type of food the person likes so you can agree on a venue that both seem to like. You could arrange the meeting time or maybe even pick her up for the date. It is never a good idea to show up late on a blind date. The person is going to immediately feel like they were stood up. While you were talking to them the first time it would have been a good idea to come to an agreement that you would are both going to dress semi-casual so that you can still dress nice but not too flashy as to out do the other person. Dress well enough to impress but not too formal. No one wants to be seen with a slob…unless you are a slob of course.

When you finally do meet you should greet each other. I think a hug is appropriate however, just a light hug, and pay her some nice compliment. If you decided to pick her up in your vehicle you can still give her a light hug but do hold the door for her. Give her a compliment after you get in the car. Chivalry is not dead! Of course some women do not like men holding doors but 90% of the time it is a good idea to do it and find out. Ask questions about each other and let her go first. Be sure to listen at the same time and don’t forget to let yourself laugh and have fun. Fun and laughter are the key ingredients to having a perfect date. Two people can really hit it off even though they just met.

Ending the date can be tricky sometimes. You never want to overstep your boundaries however if you have a good time and seemed to click then you should offer her a ride home, tell her how much fun you had on the way and then walk her to her door. It’s not hard to tel if you should go for that goodnight kiss.

If you follow these steps then you will have a good time and hopefully he or she will want to see you again on another date. Maybe a movie this time in a darker setting! Good luck!
