The Best Places to Flirt at Work

Christian Singles

A decade ago you weren’t supposed to have an office romance but today, some companies encourage them, saying that office relationships increase company loyalty and business productivity. As a result, you might see more than just the birds and bees coupling this spring. Instead, you’ll start to notice a few office romances starting to bloom.

However, even though office romances are gaining more acceptance, you still need to act professional. That doesn’t mean that you need to hide your relationship but rather there is a time and place to sneak a minute or two of flirtation.

Here are five great places to flirt with your “colleague” that won’t get you into trouble:

The Kitchen

Food is the way to anyone’s heart – especially your coworkers in the middle of a long day. Consider bringing in a healthy sweet treat on a random day, and then send an email to let your coworkers know there are delicacies in the kitchen. Before you know it, everyone will jump up and gather in the kitchen, giving you an opportune time to chat with your crush.

Remember when you were in high school and a simple “hello” from the captain of the swim team made your day? Same rule still applies; a quick chat could be the pick-me-up you needed to finish up the report you’ve been working on all week.

The Office Copiers

You probably didn’t even realize it but you make your way to the office copiers 10 times a day. Whether you are sending a fax, scanning a document or printing out a report, your business’ copier is a well-visited machine.

As a result, use this machine to your advantage; next time you know you need to print something out, send a quick email to your office crush and tell him or her to print something out too. That way, you have some company as you wait for your documents to print.

Tip: color documents tend to print slower.

The Water Cooler or Coffee Machine

The water cooler and coffee machine save professionals daily. It’s crucial that workers stay hydrated and it’s important that professionals stay awake. So the next time you need a cup of either, wink at your office interest to follow you over to the coffee machine. This will give you an opportunity to catch up on how their day is going.

Likewise, take a break by the water cooler. The most important thing to remember, however, is don’t take too long of a break and don’t put your other responsibilities on the back burner.

Outside the Bathroom

Depending on where your bathroom is located, your walk to the bathroom is a chance to meet up with your office fling. Although not the most romantic idea, it is subtle – the key trait to have in an office romance.

Places NOT to flirt at work

It’s neither professional nor wise to parade your relationship around the office. Yes, everyone might already know about it but that doesn’t mean you should steal kisses in the middle of the lunchroom. In addition, sneaking in a few minutes of flirtation here and there is what makes the relationship exciting.

The two places you should not flirt at work include:

Your Cubicle: You know how distracting it can be to have your coworker on the phone with someone for long periods of time. In the same respect, it’s not the best idea to flirt with someone in front of your neighboring cubicles. It’s distracting as well as unprofessional.

The Lunchroom: You might think that lunchtime is the perfect time to sit down and have a break with your office romance, but in reality, it isn’t. Lunch is the time when you should be socializing with many of your coworkers, not just one. The one thing you don’t want to do at work is seclude yourself from the overall work environment.

You shouldn’t feel guilty about having an office romance but always keep it professional. These five places are good to have a quick chat and won’t take too much time away from your work responsibilities.

Eligible Bachelors – Bachelorettes

Christian Singles

Everyone knows that finding a perfect partner in our busy society is not always easy. Sometimes it can feel like all the good ones are already taken, but it is not necessarily so. The world is still full of extremely eligible bachelors and bachelorettes, with billionaires, royals and aristocrats the world over still looking for that special someone.

Top of the list is a man who easily makes the Forbes top 100 rich list, Mr. Michael Bloomberg. This New York City mayor is the owner of 88% of the fantastically successful Bloomberg news and data company. Worth an estimated $18 billion Mr. Bloomberg could be quite a catch for a lady looking for a jet set lifestyle.

Another one for the ladies holds the 2009 crown for richest person in Brazil with a fortune currently standing at $27 billion; Mr. Eike Batisa is one of the world’s biggest oil and gas tycoons. Also a keen powerboat racer Mr. Batisa is looking for a new lover after he split with his ex wife, but any ladies with their eye on him will need to come up to scratch as his ex is a Playboy cover girl.

Single men searching the market for a successful lady may have previously overlooked Miss Oprah Winfrey, fearing that her busy TV schedule leaves little time for a relationship. But with retirement planned for the end of her 2011 contract and a fortune of $2.4 billion to play with, she could well be searching for the perfect chap to share her golden years with.

If you can speak a little Spanish you might be interested to hear that billionaire construction company owner, Alicia Koplowitz is still seeking a second husband following her divorce in 1989. Potential spouses will need to come with some status though, as her younger sister has been linked romantically with the Duque de Huescar, heir to the Spanish aristocratic house of Alba. Worth $2.2 billion she is definitely one to keep your eye on.

Maybe you’re looking for someone with a bit more class than some of these self made money moguls? Well the good news is there are still plenty of royals the world around who are seeking a partner and top of the list is most definitely Prince Carl Philip of Sweden. With Orlando Bloom-ish dashing good looks, this handsome 31 year old blue blood is second in line to the Swedish throne and quite a catch for a classy lady.

One for the men, the stunningly beautiful Charlotte Casiraghi is Monaco royalty and the granddaughter of Grace Kelly. At just 24 years old she is a successful published writer and editor of a popular magazine, as well as being fourth in line to the throne of Monaco.

For those looking closer to home, you may have thought all was lost since old Wills got engaged to Kate Middleton, but there is still single royalty close to home. Williams younger brother and self confessed naughty boy Harry of course is still available and don’t forget those lovely, if a bit quirky, daughters of Lady Sarah Ferguson, Beatrice and Eugenie.

5 West End Shows Guaranteed To Impress your Girlfriend

Christian Singles

Gents, with Valentine’s Day rapidly approaching it’s about time you got thinking about how you’re going to sweep your special lady off her feet. Chocolates and flowers just don’t cut it these days, diamonds are far too expensive, and clothes or saucy undies may seem like a great idea at the time, but have a habit of backfiring dramatically.

To avoid getting yourself throttled with something ill-advised, red, lacy, and inappropriately skimpy, why not treat your lady friend to a pair of theater tickets instead? A visit to London’s West End is glamorous and seems considerably more expensive than it actually is, so if you’re looking to impress someone, a trip to the West End is perfect. Treat the woman you love to an unforgettable evening.

Dirty Dancing

One of the most popular chick flicks of all time brought to life live on stage, think of the brownie points you’ll earn for escorting your lovely lady to see that! Dirty Dancing features all the iconic songs from the film and, of course, the famous lift sequence. It’s a perfect show for fans of the movie, or just for fans of a good old-fashioned love story.

Legally Blond

The pinkest, girliest, sparkliest show in town, Legally Blond: The Musical is the ideal choice if your companion is a Heat magazine-reading sort of girl. With a celeb-studded cast, hilarious songs, and some of the tiniest dogs in showbiz, any girly girl will appreciate a pair of tickets to see Legally Blond: The Musical.

Love Story

How about a weepy? Love Story isn’t just any old boy-meets-girl story, it’s one of the most celebrated tear-jerking tales of romance and heartbreak of recent times. Produced by West End legend Michael Ball, the show tells the story of Oliver and Jenny, a seemingly mismatched couple who find true love. It’s an emotional show but it’s alright, if either of you get a bit glum you can always share a teary cuddle.

Wicked

Wicked is much more than just a West End show, it’s a full-blown phenomenon. The songs have become modern classics, the sets are among the best in London and the cast are something truly special. Of all the shows on this list, this is the best one overall. Everyone from lip gloss-loving ladies to lager-drinking ladettes will enjoy the West End spectacle that is Wicked.

End of the Rainbow

The closest you’ll ever get to seeing Judy Garland live on stage, End of the Rainbow is a biographical play which peeps into the tragic icon’s hotel room during the last few months of her life. Punctuated by jaw-dropping performances of Garland’s best-loved songs perfumed by the exceptional Tracie Bennett, End of the Rainbow is the choice to impress a sophisticated lady.

Just booking a pair of theater tickets is a lovely gift which is certain to get you into your lady’s good books, but adding a hotel stay makes the whole experience extra-special.

Companies like Show-and-Stay.co.uk offer theatre tickets and hotel packages that don’t cost too much and, best of all, they only deal in top-quality tickets, so you won’t get stuck behind a pillar.

Attitudes That Will Attract Women

Single Parent Dating

When women get together and have a chit-chat that they call “girls’ talk”, most of their topics are about boys. Their current flings, how their day ended with their boyfriends, how much their guys are different from others and most especially how they wanted their guys to be. Just like guys who have criteria in choosing their dates, women have also their criteria called “ideal man”. But boys do not panic because their standards are simple and attainable. So to help you out, here are lists of what attracts a women to a man.

1. Guys should be confident
You should be confident and believe yourself that you can do or handle whatever it is that you want to do or doing. You should be confident in all aspects, in life, in work, in relationship and of course with yourself. Confidence shows women that you know what you are doing and thus they will trust and admire you. Most women are looking for a man who has the characteristics of an alpha whom they can lean on in times of confusion and hardships.

2. Guys should act as protectors
Do you wonder why most women are attracted to buff guys? This is because muscularity provides women a sense of security. Although women are competitive and intelligent, most of them are unable to defend themselves in case of danger. That is why they need to know that their guy will be there for them whenever they need them.

3. Guys should have sense of humor
Most women fall in love with those persons who know how to crack a joke because making them laugh lets them feel more comfortable and tells them that you are an approachable type of person. By the time they head home, all they can remember is how happy they had been with you and thus wishes to have your company the next time around.

4. Guys should know how to touch
Touch is another way of conveying feelings. It is a silent way of telling your lady how you feel for her and how much you want her to make yours. But be careful and be sensitive if you do not want to be charged with harassment. Just do light touches first and see if she responds by touching you too. And if she feels okay when your bodies are close together, then try touching her face and if she does not flinch or move away, then you will know that she wants you to touch her.

See, what women want are just simple – simply enough to make them feel complete and important. Practice these attitudes and definitely you can make lots of women turn their heads into your direction just like playboys do. How to attract a woman would no longer be a problem, but keep in mind to take care of your lady and always respect them if you want them to stay with you.

  • Write or print a few suitable words on your valentine’s card. These are a great alternative to rubber stamps. (Men leave the hand writing to the women, find a suitable font in Word and go from there, its for the best!)
  • If you going to hand write, use a quality pen.
  • Write slowly and evenly.
  • Write naturally.
  • If your a poet at heart, then you should definitely include some romantic words that rhyme. (women eat that stuff up!)
  • As cheesy as this may sound, use lyrics from a song. Preferably a song your significant other doesn’t know, but if you must, say something like, Michael Buble says it best, “You know your some kind of wonderful…”.

There you have it, a bunch of ways to have a successful and romantic Valentines Day. Indulge yourself in that ridiculously large heart filled with your favorite chocolates. Go make lemonade!

Subway Coupons Are Better Than Pickup Lines

Christian Singles

There is a fool proof method of using free Subway coupons to meet gorgeous women that I’d like to share with you.  You might be thinking, how does the use of discounts lead to meeting women?  It’s actually a fairly simple principle that can be applied to any store or restaurant where you’ll typically have to stand in somewhat of a single file line.  The main principle behind this method is a random act of kindness, or in this case the perception of a random act.

Think about all the ways you can meet random women.  I’m not talking about being set up by friends.  Just think about scenarios where you see a gorgeous woman however you’re too afraid to approach her because she’s a complete stranger.  All your thoughts will be telling you not to speak with her because she’ll immediately reject you.  The one thing that can be the difference is when you somehow can add value to her life.  A perfect example would be eating out at restaurants.  Often times there are pretty girls who are waitresses.  You have no problem talking with them because there is an implied relationship between server and customer.  It’s her job to be nice to you and it’s your job to eventually give her a tip.  The point of this example is by being a customer you’re adding value to her life which is why you can have free flowing conversations.

How many times can you remember standing in line at Subway either behind or in front of a pretty girl.  You’re afraid to talk to her because you have nothing to say, and thus you aren’t adding value to her life.  Break out a Subway coupon, turn to her and tell her that you have an extra coupon that you’d like to give her.  That random act of kindness will open the door and lower her defenses.  You have to take it from there.
