Single Cruising- A Vacation Option to Meet New People

Meeting new people for dating or fun is now easier than ever. With social networking platforms, such as a Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat, and dozens of online dating sites providing people with a means of getting to know other people via your laptop, tablet or smartphone, dating has become virtual.

A different way of connecting

However, some feel this method of meeting somewhat impersonal. For those who still want to meet people in the flesh but want to try something a bit different, a Single’s Cruise may be the perfect dating option for you.

Setting sail from a range of destinations, Single Cruising is the latest way to meet other single, like-minded individuals, while having a fantastic vacation. Unlike seeing someone at a bar and wondering whether they’re single, being on a Single’s Cruise takes out the guess-work as you know everyone there is single and looking. You can therefore talk to whoever you wish, confident in the knowledge that the conversation could lead somewhere.

Cruises are often fully catered, offering a plethora of food types for a variety of palettes, and Single’s Cruises are no different. Having an all-inclusive vacation takes out the anxiety that eating out abroad can bring in terms of cost and therefore allows the rest of your budget to be put to better use. Food is an excellent talking point as well as a date, so meeting someone while dining is not unusual. Additionally, the numerous bars and pools are great places to meet others.

A range of ages

Single’s Cruises are also available in a range of ages so that, if age is important to you, you can meet a fellow singleton in a similar age bracket to yourself. Humor, knowledge and interests can all be affected by age, so meeting someone who you have a lot in common with could be made even more likely by going on an over 50s Single’s Cruise.

How to  have a Romantic Valentine’s Day that will always be remembered! By Fran Greene

Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to express your love and appreciation.  With a little planning, you are sure to be a romantic hit with  your partner.  Here are some suggestions  guaranteed to be a hit with your Valentine.

Romantic Gifts for Her

The golden rule of giving her a Valentine’s Day gift is never ever to ask her want she wants.   It takes all the mystery and romance love and great dating photosout of the gift.  The gift should be something that  she will love!  Listen for  hints, trust me; she will let you know!  Do not go overboard with someone who you have just started dating.  It could scare her off.  Going over the top will give the appearance that you want your gift to win her over rather than you.  Flowers, chocolate, or a cute cuddly bear is  the perfect gift.

Here are some suggestions  for romantic gift ideas:

  • A Gift  Certificate for a facial or a massage ( perhaps a couples massage)
  • A romantic getaway
  • Personalized  M and M’s
  • A dinner prepared by you
  • A  photo of the  two of  you in an engraved frame
  • 2 Dozen Roses ( 1 dozen is expected, 2 dozen is WOW)
  • High End Chocolate, not the chocolate from the supermarket
  • Romantic Jewelry, anything with hearts, circles and of course diamonds

Romantic Gifts for Him

Men need and want to be the center of your universe too.  Valentine’s Day is  the perfect day to let him know how much you care about him.

Have someone new in your life, chose  a card that is not too sentimental or mushy, find one that is a little mysterious.   Not sure if you want to get him something, or  it feels too new, get him anything  sweet and decadent.  It is  true that the best way to   a man’s heart  is giving him something sweet and delicious.

Here are some gift ideas that will put a huge smile on his face.

  • Personalized  cookies
  • Sexy  Sunglasses
  • Cologne that drives you crazy
  • Yummy chocolate
  • Home baked goodies
  • Breakfast in Bed

Romantic Songs

Did you ever wish that you could write a love song and sing it to your beloved.

Here is a list of 5  very romantic songs.  Why not  download  your favorite and dedicate it  to your love. You could also make a CD  of all of them and give it as a gift to him or her. 

  • I Will Always Love you  by Whitney Houston
  • I Want to Hold Your Hand by the Beatles
  • Tonight I Celebrate  MY Love by Pebro Bryson and Roberta Flack
  • The Way You Look Tonight by Frank Sinatra
  • I Can’t Stop Loving You by Ray Charles
  • Just the Way You  Are by Billy Joel

Being single on Valentine’s Day

A lot of articles out there

There are a ton of articles out there that tell you how to plan a Valentines’ day, on dating ideas!

valentines day dating advice 001But I’m still single

What if you’re just not feeling it?

What if you are newly single and have just ventured out in the dating world?

What if you haven’t yet met someone to ask out on a Valentines’ day date!

Simply stay away from romantic restaurants or flower stores and take it as an opportunity to treat yourself!
Buy a nice bottle of wine and plan your Valentine’s day to be for you even if it’s just something simple as watching Netflix.

Don’t feel Bad!

Most of all don’t feel bad! Whether you’re in a relationship or not does NOT who you are! Remember that there are millions of other people who are single and like being single and that there’s nothing wrong with you.

An other important thing to know

Before you get a date you need to attract someone special! What kind of first impression do you make, whether online or in-person?

“Date the real person-Not the potential”

A couple of days ago while driving I switched the radio on and found a radio program that was just ending…

201109092029320393491It was all about women who were dating the wrong guys…the expert (Who I didn’t get to hear who she was!) Gave some really good advice to women listeners, she said.

“Date the real person-Not the potential”

This in my opinion the main reasons intelligent, attractive women remain stuck in a dead-end relationship

“OK” I hear you say… “But my date is different”- “He really does have potential, he just lost his job in a tough economy”!

Women…There’s a vast difference between a guy who’s lost his job and is doing all he can to get a new job AND a guy who has the potential to be a great match for you!

Successful daters-(Even if they find someone attractive) will dismiss a date who fails to meet their criteria for a happy relationship!

You’re not going to FIX him, and you shouldn’t even want to try!

5 First date tips!

First dates can be anything from fun to stressful or boring!

Let’s make sure you’re dates in 2014 are successful with these seven first date tips:

1.Show respect

Dress sharp, show up on time, be polite to the waiter, and give your date your attention.(If you have to keep your phone on (If you have Kids or a friend waiting to call you just in  case the date goes bad) then put it on “vibrate”.

2. Never talk About Your “Ex”

NEVER, NEVER, NEVER talk about your Ex.
While I’s easy to talk about your Ex on a first date-because both of you have ‘that terrible Ex in common. Don’t do it!
The idea of a date is to have fun and get to know someone a little better…while later down the road you can discuss past relationships, now is NOT the time…First dates should be drama free and fun!

3. Don’t Interrogate your Date.

It’s a date not a job interview!
I’ve heard many people give the advice that tells you to ask your date lots of questions and listen attentively but remember to allow your date to get to know you too.

4. NEVER Get Drunk

Many of us have been on a date when the other person get’s drunk-it’s no fun at all- remember first impressions count so make a good one.”

5. Relax and be you.

Relax and be you…never try to impress your date and never try to be what you think your date will like! (It’s way too stressful!) Be honest about who you are and what you do.

3 Tips for Finding someone special in 2014

If you’re reading this then I hope you’ll have your best year ever and find someone special.
Here’s 2 simple tips to get you started

1. Make love a priority without urgency.

We’ve all heard: “When the time is right the right you’ll meet the right person.” But “we’ve also been told to “Go out and make it happen”

I think a balance between these 2 points of view is a healthy balance.
Resolve to go out and meet people AND look online so that you have a better chance of finding love, and don’t force it…(forcing things is way too needy) the trick is to take action and spend time letting things unfold

And when you go on a first date don’t already start examining if you could spend the rest of your life with them. Don’t go there!…There is way less pressure just getting to know your date…learn more about a new person, not just fall in love with a romantic fantasy.

2. First impressions count.

Before you get a date you need to attract someone special! What kind of first impression do you make, whether online or in-person?
Online, having great online dating photos is the most important thing you can do when dating online, we all look at the photos first! so visit LookBetterOnline and and see how with great profile pictures we can help make your online dating experience successful and more fun than you thought possible!And your profile is well written- If your personal look could use some improvement, then do it whether it’s new clothes or hairstyle..

2. Confidence is key

Confidence is key! And I don’t mean cockiness…I mean the confidence to be authentic!
If you’re nervous about a first date then you might want to try some exercise an hour or two prior to getting ready and going out (Often being in your body will get you “Out” of your nervous mind)
And when it comes to talking- stay in the comfort zone by coming up with a few subjects that won’t get you into trouble (And AVOID at all costs Politics or Religion!…I know obvious eh!)
If you’re not sure what to talk about then  ask your date about their life, listen and go from there.
Also don’t forget there’s is a fine line between being confidence and cocky – nobody likes a cocky guy who is too cool, so keep it real

Ways to feel more confident:

Don’t slouch!
Take a couple of deep breaths and Stand or sit  tall! Pull your shoulders back  and pick your chin up No one looks confident if they are always looking down!

Slow down and take a breath
When you get nervous, your voice goes up and you’ll talk faster than you realize.  These are two dead giveaways for lack of confidence…so breathe deeply and relax…It’s not a race to impress her!

Top Ten List of Flirting Tips

I’m a fan and a friend of Fran Greene

Meet Fran

the flirting bibleWhen I first met Fran she kindly sent me a copy of her book “The flirting bible” (See details below) I remember that I was skeptical until I read the book and then I remember that I’d told my readers to buy a copy and read it twice!

Fran’s an authentic and delightful New-Yorker with a heart of gold, she’s also a Nationally renowned relationship expert and former advice columnist for Match.com (To find out more about her CLICK HERE )

Last week Fran and I were catching up on the telephone and I asked her to share an article for my blog…here it is…enjoy

Top ten flirting tips guaranteed to make you a fabulous flirt.

What is flirting?
Flirting is a wonderful icebreaker and tension reducer.
Flirting is testing the romantic waters. It’s the best way to make a connection with someone.
Flirting is a great way to let someone know that you find them interesting, attractive, fun or appealing to you.

10. Flirting is an Attitude:

A great flirt is self confident and not afraid to take a risk. Be enthusiastic and positive, it works!

9. Start a Conversation:

The best opening line is saying hello! Talk about the surroundings, ask a question, ask for help, or state an opinion.

8. Have Fun:

Be playful, light hearted and spontaneous. Let your sense of humor shine through.

7. Use Props:

Never leave home without a prop. Props are natural conversation starters. They encourage conversation and others will be compelled to start talking to you. Amazing props include dogs, kids, unusual jewelry, a fabulous scent, a sweatshirt with your favorite passion, an eye catching tie, or an interesting book or magazine.

6. Be the Host:

Change your behavior from the role of guest to host. You are not the passive person in waiting, but rather the welcoming committee.

5. Make the First Move:

Move closer, pay a compliment, make eye contact, or say hi to the person you want to meet.

4. Listen:

You have two ears and one mouth because you should listen twice as much as you talk. Practice active listening. Your flirting partner will be drawn to you. Everyone loves to be listened to!

3. Eye Contact:

Make eye contact, but please look your flirting interest in the eye gently, no more than 2-4 seconds, look away. Don’t stare – it’s a turn off.

2. Compliment:

Compliment your flirting partner. The best compliments have the element of surprise. The “flirtee” will know that you really noticed them. Your compliments must be honest, sincere, and genuine. When you receive a compliment the best response is merely thank you.

1. Smile:

It is contagious! It will make you so much more approachable. A smile lights up your face and it will draw people towards you. You will be a people magnet! Try it.

How to Avoid online dating scammers!

A lot of people

Millions of Americans use online dating sites to meet people, but “online dating scammers” also use these sites to meet “victims”. They make fake profiles to fool you into an online relationship with them, and eventually convince people to SEND MONEY in the name of love. Some even make wedding plans before disappearing with the money.

Not stupid

An online love interest who asks for money is almost certainly a scam artist, and you don’t have to be stupid…often when we want to find love that we are more vulnerable than usual

Don’t be paranoid

OK so the purpose of this BLOG isn’t to make you paranoid or disillusioned! Despite the scammers online dating can still be a great way to meet someone special, but don’t forget to follow these 3 simple tips to make your experience safer.

1. Don’t give away personal information

Imagine meeting a stranger in a bar and he (or she) asks you for personal details, imagine him or her asking you for your Email, phone number or street address. Now you’d probably decline, yet online people often fail to see just how unsafe this is!

Your full identity

Remember that you don’t want to reveal your full identity until you can feel that you know the person a bit better– remain anonymous until you feel ready. Take advantage of most of the dating websites “member-to-member” messaging that protects you identity until you decide to reveal who you are
And also, leave any personal contact information out of your profile or username.

2. Never send Money.

Ignore ALL requests to send money-even if the person claims to be in an emergency. If someone asks for money it’s because they ARE a scammer…would you ask someone you met when online dating for money? Of course you wouldn’t-Yet thousands of people are scammed each year doing just this….DON”T send money for sick kids parents or ANYTHING!

3. Watch the language

Look closely at messages that people send you. The scammer will often send you an email which is full of bad grammar, for example.

“By the way I’m Green I am professional Doctor “…

OR

Hello, I go through you profile its look nice and lovely

Match.com also gives great advice…they say:

“Be wary of communications that ask you to act immediately, offer something that sounds too good to be true, or asks for personal information. There are certain red flags to watch for that may indicate you’re dealing with a scammer. Be aware of anyone who”…

• Quickly asks to talk or chat on an outside email or messaging service
• Claims to be from U.S. but currently travelling, living or working abroad
• Vanishes mysteriously from the site, then reappears under a different name
• Talks about “destiny” or “fate”
• Claims to be recently widowed
• Asks for your address under the guise of sending flowers or gifts
• Makes an inordinate amount of grammar and/or spelling errors
• Sends you emails containing strange links to third-party websites

Something else to think about!

The stats are in on good dating photos. The more effort you put into looking your best, the more romantic options you’ll have and the better choices you have to avail yourself of. Don’t sell yourself short. You’ll want options going forward and whether you have one or two or dozens, you’ll want every one of them. Good photos give you options. Once you settle on one of your new options, the heartbreak you felt a month ago or a year ago will be a distant memory. Just like your ex…
