The First Impression is a Lasting ImpressionWritten by Linda Reeves
The first date is most apprehensive, nerve wreaking event in beginning of any relationship and it is also "first impression" and one thing in life that can never be changed!
OK, so you have talked for months on computer and on phone, you have talked about childhood to adulthood, good and bad, past relationships, family and everything else in between and you think you really know this person and like them enough to meet them in person. The anticipation builds, you talk and you plan, where to go, what to do, what to wear, so many preparations to make a great impression and hopefully start a relationship that will last a lifetime.
In making that first impression, insure that you have been honest with this person and they have been honest with you, dishonesty does not a good relationship make. Talk to your new friend and discuss what you would like to do, where you would like to go, keeping others likes and dislikes in mind. From that point try following tips to plan an outing that is sure to be a pleasant time for both of you.
1. Whatever your plans are, have a backup plan in case of cancellation, closing or weather. 2. Be punctual, plan a specific time and meeting place 3. Discuss attire for your outing, nothing worse than showing up in a casual attire when your date is dressed more
Summertime and New RomanceWritten by Linda Reeves
The tempertures are rising and romances are in full bloom as we move into summer months of adventures, vacations and new beginnings.
We all love changing of seasons and all surprises that are in store, flowers are blooming and bring luxurious color to our world, our hearts are opening as we look for love, romance and hot partnerships. In months of summer we are more available to meet opposite sex as we are spending more time outdoors attending events, traveling and enjoying summer, but we are also open to many dangers as well.
As it is a wondertime of year, we must be open to other things this time has to offer as well. We meet people and our minds and hearts are open after a long cold winter and we tend to think we are somewhat bulletproof to all dangers associated with this new found adventure. Granted, that tender embrace, that sweet sensual kiss and that night of firey passion may have been great at time but will possible "gift" you were given be worth all that fun and excitement? Somehow, I think not!
Lets reveiw some tips that have been preached for some time now in reference to our human nature, raging hormones and unbridled passion that seem to be more eveident in summer months since we are wearing less clothing and exposing more of our bodies to opposite sex.
First of all, you younger girls, although I know your young little bodies look great in those barely there bikinis, short shorts and "if you bend over your kootsie is gonna show skirts", but, think about what you are wearing before you walk out door. These type things are an invitation, and hey if you are of legal age and that is what you are going for great, if that is not kind of attention you want.....then cover your ass! Predators are out and looking for an invitation, don't become a statistic.
Secondly, STD's, need I say more? I will be first to admit how much I love sex and that exciting rondevous with that stranger that I don't know very well, but I always carry my trusty condoms
