Living the Lifestyle As A Sugar Dating

Though the concept has been around for a long time, the scenario of wealthier, older men and young women dating has become the new dating lifestyle with younger socialites in an agreement of companionship.

iseeksugar-itunesiSeekSugar has been approved click on image for iTunes and we look forward to helping you with this new and exciting form of dating. This type of relationship used to be somewhat unspoken. It used to be understood through intentions and outward appearances: a man tipping the valet in twenties, and glancing at his dense, gold incrusted watch as he lifts it to a drooped brow beneath designer sun glasses; and the vibrant beauty in the corner café across the street that entices him with her bouncy locks and shapely physique radiating with youth. Then, through ‘casual’ and strategic conversation, it becomes clear what both parties want and what they are willing to give in order to gain it. It’s flirtatious and sexy and informative all rolled into one. But now, there’s more of a cutting-to-the-chase type of approach to this particular dating scene.

00-appstore-mainNow, there’s an entire slew of websites dedicated to helping you find a suitable match with a defined arrangement. If you prefer more traditional social meetups and dating, click on image for our other app ReallyReal. People are much more upfront about their desires – sex appeal or money, and much more frank about their offerings – courting or money. There’s a level of consideration for both people that takes away any fears of rejections, tenseness, or awkwardness in this sort of agreement that the sites have brought out in this type of dating. The following are three sugar babies’ accounts of sugar dating reality.

1) “I Needed Him, And He Needed Me.”

I was 20, and I’d never been away from home. I had never planned on attending college after graduating high school… in fact I hadn’t really planned on doing a whole lot – at least not then. The last job I held was working cashier at my neighborhood car washing service for ten months before I missed two shifts and couldn’t get anyone to cover them for me, and was fired. I had no goals or ambitions, and had been without a job for several months. I had counted on the fact that I’d eventually find my calling, possibly being chosen out of a crowded mall while America’s Next Top Model was in town for casting (like one of the girls from past seasons was), or getting a ridiculously large sum of money for winning the lotto. But since I never bothered to look up casting dates and locations for a coincidental and slim chance to model and rarely bought lotto tickets, I figured that I wasn’t all that determined to do much of anything for myself. I didn’t really need to think about it either. I had hard working parents that were never home, I grew up in a nice suburban home with all my childhood friends, and I didn’t have that jealous streak in me that pushed me to do better because all my friends were doing big things. I just didn’t have a lot to worry about even with the lack of employment. Sure, my parents were always nagging me and attempting to motivate me to at least work; they never had it in their hearts to really punish me for my laziness.

One weekend day though, while I was pretending to job search online when I was really instant messaging my friend on Facebook, my Mom went to take our dog for a walk. I had always parked my car down the street since our front driveway and garage and side streets were pretty packed daily. And that’s when she saw it – my hammy down 1982 Toyota Camry – the passenger side badly crushed and severely scraped. “It’s still drivable though,” I plead with her. “But I am looking for a job!” I retort. Then it’s a guilt trip unlike anything I’ve faced, and all my mistakes, character flaws, and selfish acts are unveiled in a furious frenzy of name calling and accusations that ends with my booting from home. I stay with friends until I eventually ware out my welcome there as well, mooching off of their families while I struggle to seriously find a job that sticks. But nothing works nor pays enough. I’m a theater attendant for 25 hours weekly here, slaving away at a string of fast food joints there, and then ricocheting off of numerous gas stations and countless retail stores.

This chaotic and unsettling turmoil of varied homes, jobs and unsteady pay checks goes on for a while, until I find myself catching the eye of one brilliantly shiny suit and tie – I mean eye. Interviewing at one of the many restaurants I’ve applied to, a man with bristly facial hair, polished dress shoes and appears to be twice my age, smiles from across the hostess podium. He’s with another guy in a suit that seems to be talking his ear off, and has a very serious and stern look on his face. They are led to a table some ways from me, where the intriguing man is continuously peeking over at me from behind his menu. I blush, flash a small smirk, and then I wait outside after my interview is over, enjoying a cheap fag – one of my many expenses that I indulge in, necessarily, instead of paying rent to my gracious friends’ parents.

Mr. Big Spender finally comes out, sees his colleague into a taxi, and walks leisurely over to me. Flirty small talk turns into coffee which turns in several lunch dates which soon turns into me moving in to his master suite hotels with him and traveling all year-long to exotic locales and European villas. I stroked his ego a lot and made him feel as special as he made me feel. I tended to his every emotional desire and put up with his moody episodes. I needed him just as much as he needed me. But his job finally settled him in Michigan, where we moved in the dead of winter. When he confessed that there would be no more traveling for his work for a very long time now, I told him that I needed that adventure in my life and that I’d have to find it somewhere else. He was very understanding and knew that the relationship couldn’t last long. He did, however, make several attempts to persuade me to stay, showering me with gifts and lingerie and telling me that he’d always take care of me. But I told him cold weather just wasn’t for me, and all though we cared for each other very much, it was time I moved on. I had found my calling card. I was going to be a professional sugar baby.

woman on beach working on laptop against the seaI set up a profile on several sugar dating sites and formed my own set of rules, restricting myself to one sugar daddy at a time, devoting myself wholly and completely to that one special guy until breaking it off for new horizons. That was the only moral issue I had with the idea – that I couldn’t be with several daddies at once because I liked the idea of living with each one. They are my boyfriends and my work. And I’ve found an interest in painting while on vacation with my recent hunk. He thinks he could sell one of my portraits it to an interested gallery. I may have a future there, but in the meantime…

I don’t know if I’ll ever stop being in the sugar baby business. Maybe I would consider it if I found that one guy that outshines all the rest in his brains and bank account. But I know that if it weren’t for sugar dating, I’m not sure I’d be where I am today, sunning in California without a care in the world – except for my lunch date with Mr. Right Now, who’s my only concern. A job that I can enjoy happy hour every day at noon, conversing with the CEO of a fortune-500 company, loosening his nerves and relaxing my own – that’s the kind of work I enjoy.

bieyes-photobooth-728x90-E&M-pink2) “I Was A Sugar Baby, Before I Understood Term.”

I’ve always been bright. Top of my graduating high school class, scholarship to my state college, and straight-A student, and living off of student loans, yet I still manage to maintain a wonderful lifestyle. When I was a teenager, I was super popular with all the boys. I always had a boyfriend. And all my boyfriends knew that I was fairly high-maintenance. Even though I came from a very low-income household, living with my Aunt and Uncle, I always had this personality for expensive taste. I liked to be pampered and I never paid for meals or dates. I always got the heavier gifts for holidays on the cash-o-meter, because I could never afford the same for them. It never seemed to bug anyone. At least anyone I was with. I always focused more on my studies rather than working. Right out of high school, I moved in with my boyfriend at the time, into our own apartment. He was working two jobs and skipped on college. But things didn’t work out, and I was looking for a job for the first time to help support myself.

iseeksugar-itunes2I found a really neat dating site where men were willing to pay me for my time. I found a couple of guys that I really liked. One was a partner in a law firm who knew lots about negotiating and the importance of networking. One was a nerdy engineer who was about the youngest of the bunch, but still older than me, who loved a lot of the same scientific and math topics I did. And one was a much older man who could’ve been old enough to be my great-grandfather who had been a farmer and owned a small ranch in the country, when he’d hit it big in the lottery and became a mega millionaire overnight. They were all so sweet and I’d have three-hour long dinners with them, go to movies, accompany them to business events and country clubs, and sometimes just talk on the phone for hours – when I wasn’t doing my homework, of course. But that’s it. There was no solidifying a relationship. There was no talk or mention of sex. There was no assumption of physical affairs. It was friendship, and I got paid to be a part of it. Between the three of them, I made upwards of 7,000 dollars a month! Neither of them knew the other existed, so I pretty much got paid triple the amount of my rent and monthly living expenses every couple of weeks. I even saved up enough money to pay off some student loans, buy a new car and some decadent furniture.

I stopped it fairly soon after saving enough money. I only have a few semesters left to go, and I’m pretty set as long as I’m conservative and smart with the money I have left over. I don’t think I’ll ever go back to being a sugar baby, but it was certainly a pleasant way to make cash and I don’t regret it at all. It’s nice to be secure until I find an opening in my career field, and I sort of think of it as a summer job. And I really think of the men I met as special people in my lives that I was able to make a difference for – they certainly made a difference in my life. I’m sure my future relationships will be the same as they’ve always been, and I’ll always stay the role of a sugar baby. It’s funny that I was a sugar baby even before the coined term. It was fun to try it out from a professional standpoint, but I know that I’d rather play that role for someone my age – romance wise.

3) “She’s All I Ever Wanted.”

26 years old, living in a 600 square-footage studio apartment with four other roommates, playing nightly gigs at the local bar for tip money – that’s where I sat almost 18 months ago. I’m not complaining though. It was enough for me. I had friends that I lived with who all pretty much made the same minuscule amount of money I brought home each week. I lived on instant ramen noodles and TV-dinner pot pies (when they were on sale), and a keg if we ever had enough money to scrap together and spare. I was counting on the fact that I’d have my day in the recording studio, that I’d somehow catch the ear of some hot-shot talent manger. But until that day, I was just spending my days writing songs on my guitar and practicing with my band on weekends to prepare for our nightly slot in front of a crowd of 30 – on a good night. It wasn’t until I got drunk with my friends on a camping trip in the peak of winter, passed out sleeveless on a bed of snow, and had to have my right arm amputated for frost bite, that I came to a sobering realization. Without that arm, I would never be able to become the rock star I’d always dreamed of. There were famous rockers that were able to play their instruments with a physical handicap, and remained remarkably and insanely top notch. But not me. Maybe I could’ve if I tried, but my willpower was drained after that.

really-real-girl-onwall-3

My friends were sympathetic for a while, until they got tired of having to pull my weight in groceries and rent. They kept pushing me to get a job and finding me one in their places of work as a pizza delivery boy, an over-the-phone customer representative, and more. But I never had the motivation to work for them. So I got my thirty days notice to vacate, and started looking for a job and apartment needed in less than four weeks. My friend, Jeanine, had talked about this sugar dating service she was into, and that she’d made more money in a week than she could ever at a minimum wage job. I looked it up online, and immediately started posting profiles at every sugar dating site I could find.

In no time at all, women were calling me up, connecting with me online, and asking me out to brunch. I went on a lot of dates. And unlike most other jobs, my handicap wasn’t an issue. Many of the women thought my missing arm was fascinating and adorable at the same time. A lot of women felt sorry for me, and it helped me in the dollar department in that respect. My family probably wouldn’t have approved of this alternative job, and my guy friends wouldn’t understand because they weren’t in the same position. So it was nice that I could act as if I was going out on a job interview, when really I was going out on a date, which I guess was almost the same thing but more fun. Soon, I was making more than enough money to stay in a comfortable apartment and eat more than ramen every night with the amount of money I got just to go to dinner with some of these older gals. Some were all wound up and business oriented, just wanting to enjoy a martini while they take a load off of work. Some were tired-looking and needed a make-out session to spice up their week. Some were escaping their lifeless and extremely dull marriages, a night at a time, with me. One lady said that what she liked the most about me was that I made her laugh and forget her troubles. Another lady said that she wanted more than just friendship, and that it was okay to have multiple girlfriends, as long as I always made time for her.

So, I started using that as a condition of my contractual obligations – not that there were really any written contracts to have signed, just mutual agreements since we’d both invested our time in the site. I started telling people up front that I was a relationship man, and I liked having girlfriends, not just chatting buddies, and that I had multiple – if that was a problem, than we probably shouldn’t meet in the first place. I still had lots of business. I had all sorts of girlfriends of all ages – older than me of course, but there was a range. I had an on-going steady relationship with seven. My days of the week were pretty jam packed with secret getaways and private phone calls and fun, exciting activities that I got to be paid for and the best part – no one knew.

Shopping!One of the girlfriends though, turned out to be something more than just a romance fling. She’s 46, blonde and tan, and wears designer perfume and Valentino everywhere we go. She’s a lead editor at a wealthy publishing company, and she owns a really beautiful apartment – the whole 32nd floor, to be exact. She’s shy and always takes a bit of coaxing to get her to come out of her shell. But she also has a side that is wild and free-spirited that she only reveals for me. She doesn’t pay as much as some of the other chicks, but she’s a lot of fun to be with and I feel very close to her. You can tell she used to be gorgeous as a young lady, but years of working her butt off and sucking up to executives of the company has shown its’ toll on her face and body. One night, we stayed up until sunrise and talked about everything and anything. I found that we have so much in common and a lot of her upbringing was similar to mine. I realized that she’s all I ever wanted. We fell asleep in each other’s arms, and after that night I cut ties with all of my other girlfriends and quit business as a sugar baby.

I proposed to her on a romantic vacation on the beaches of Thailand, and we’ve been married for only a few months now, but I know it’s forever. Without sugar dating, I may never have been able to connect with her, and known what true love had in store for me.

Like and Unlike Any Other Life

iseeksugar-itunesIt’s clear that sugar dating has always been a lucrative market for fellow babies, but that it’s just now becoming defined as a market and the employee title as babies. Sugar babies will always have the demand required to stay afloat as earners, just as sugar daddies and mommies will always have eager youths to keep them company. Sugar babies have all sorts of reasons for starting, stopping and continuing this type of work, and the job description varies for each of them. Sugar dating has been around for a very long time, and is just now starting to gain more societal acceptance now that its terms are more freely discussed. It’s a lifestyle that offers benefits, requires work, and can lead to other opportunities, just like any other lifestyle.

Sugar Baby Lifestyles – Intimate Details From A Sugar Baby

His name was Craig. I literally bumped into him after coming out of a nail salon while neglecting to watch where I was walking. I would’ve hit the ground, but he was there to catch me. As I noticed his handsome duds and flashy cuff links, and he noticed that I had curves in all the right places, a gorgeous 2015 blue convertible Lamborghini Gallardo screeched up barely missing the french tips of my freshly pedicured feet. He handed the valet driver a crisp twenty and swung his keys around on his finger as he looked at me. At the same time that he was undressing me with his eyes and I was imagining the feel of the leather in his Lamborghini, a horn honked abruptly and loudly, prying me away from my thoughts. It was my boyfriend – a sugar daddy to trip over in his own day, before his company went down. Now he was half a million cheaper, trading in some of his prized merchandise for less expensive models – except for me that is. I still get taken care of like the high-maintenance arm candy I am, but he can hardly afford it. I’d been looking for someone new, and now I’d found him. But I couldn’t just leave Derrick – I made a commitment to him, so I had to at least honor the decency of distancing myself from him in a professional and considerable manner. So I left this mystery man, giving him a look that he wouldn’t forget – a look that said he was soon to be mine. He smirked and turned to leave.

Sugar Baby – Getting To Know Each Other

girl-smiling5A few weeks later, we had another “coincidental” meeting in front of the nail salon that neighbored the smashing hotel he was exiting. No attraction had changed; the only thing different was that I was newly single and – unemployed. We gravitated from shaking hands, to a flirty lunch across the street, to the opulent confines of his giant penthouse suite next door. I tasted the citrusy smoke emitting from the orange-liquor flavored cigar he was enjoying in wake of our first intimate encounter together. Just as I was thinking how I could definitely deal with the smell of his cigars in this big mound of plushy sheets, I told him I’d been dying to take a spin his lovely blue Lamborghini. He smiled and shot me a sideway glance, took one last puff on his cigar, and suggested that I join him for a shower before taking a ride. I agreed as I became wet at the thought of his warm leather seats against my skin.

After he dropped me off at my apartment, his engine roared away, and I couldn’t stop thinking about him and his darling car. The next day he asked me out to brunch, but this time he pulled up in a 2012 red convertible Ferrari F430 Spider that was so shiny, I could see the contours of my abs in it. When I asked him where the Lamborghini was, he simply said, “This is my casual-day-out ride.” I could hear the smooth rise in speed as he shifted gears, and I noticed that it wasn’t an automatic like the Lamborghini. “You know how to ride one of these things?” He asked slyly with a smirk that said he thought he already knew my answer.

“Yes, actually.” I had experience with these types of cars – and men, for that matter. “And that’s not all I know how to ride.” I added in a whisper, seductively grazing his right ear lobe with hot shortness of breath. His surprised drop of a jaw slowly curled back into a heavily lopsided grin that was far from the poker face he normally carries. I knew what fantasies were dropping into his mind like musical bombs from my lips. After a drive soaking up the sun, we arrived at his suite for a few pre-party cocktails – except the party was for two, and I brought the fun. In the bedroom, daylight still pouring in over his cream colored sheets, I showed off my own brand of stick-shifting skills for him to delight in.

Then and Now

That was three months ago and I couldn’t be happier than I was on our first date. Something is different about this sugar daddy though. I’m not sure if it was the 75 dollar sliders at Fleur in Vegas, the 700-something bottle of ’95 Krug, Clos Du Mesnil we enjoyed glass after glass, the crisp iron of his black Calvin Klein suits, or the way his eyes moved up my inner thighs as I spread my legs apart. It may have been the private screenings of movies at glamorous theaters, or the endless pairs of Manolo Blahniks I was given to indulge in my shoe fetish. Point is, somewhere in-between the divine dining, lavish drinks, priority third-party treatment, frivolous spending and grand stone floors of numerous high-end venues – I fell in love. I fell for the lifestyle and the luxury that the rewards of this job provide. But most of all – I fell in love with his desire.

really-reallogo

I fell in love with the way his eyes burn into mine as my legs are wrapped tight around his waist; the way his slightly parted lips only close when he swallows as a reflex to his salivation; the way his grip around my waist tightens and his breath becomes heavily rapid as the pace quickens and he is reaching a climax; and the way he exhales and licks his lips as I slow down just before he bursts. I fell in love with the way his member swells up with the same shade of scarlet pink as his cheeks when it gets hard.

passionI fell in love with the way he could turn the pointed mountains of my chest into stiff peaks, and then explore them with the tip of his tongue, the brush of his kiss, and the way he devoured them momentarily, making me stifle a gasp and invite him deeper in below. I fell in love with the way he’d remove my fingers from my lips so gently, and said that “my moan was so sexy.” I fell in love with every vibration his body made when he shuddered from ejaculation. Anything I did – stripping my silk robes to reveal the lace bras and sting-bikini thongs he’d buy me, or lining my lips with a pink satin M.A.C. stick so that I could stain his with the shimmery matte color, or the way I’d rock commando in public and flash him a sneak peek with alternating crossed legs underneath skin-tight thigh-high dresses – made him blush, smile and pretend to look away so cutely. I knew what he was thinking when he looked at me, touched me, talked to me….and I became addicted to his desire for me.

Real Dating

Dating in the modern age is already difficult. Expectations have become so high that it feels impossible to meet the right person. Especially when so many people are looking for Mr./Mrs, a BF/GF, colleague or just a good friend. Right now instead of just right. With all the anxiety that is involved in dating, dating online has far more anxiety. You get a message online from someone you don’t know and no one you know knows. Trying to make such an important decision is difficult with a few profile descriptions and a hand full of one liners. Want to know what makes it even more difficult? WHEN PEOPLE LIE ON THEIR PROFILE!

Age:

Lying or fibbing about your age is a big deal. It will be painfully obvious when the date starts if you hacked a whole 10 years off your actual age. Even in a superficial culture where age matters and everyone wants to be young, proving that you have no inhibitions about lying is a bad start to a relationship. Most people will bounce after they find out you lied about something so important.

really-realy-butWeight & Physique:

Everyone’s weight can fluctuate a bit depending on daily eating habits and fluid intake, but putting on your profile that you are an athletic build and weight 160lbs, but show up curvaceous at 200, there are going to be some reconsiderations. It’s not fair that we cannot control our physique 100% and some of us were built thicker than others, but we also cannot wholly decide which body type we are attracted to as well.

Photographs:

iStock_000018701022XSmallThe most difficult decisions when trying to put a dating profile together is which pictures to add. Maybe a selfie to show your assets? Or a group picture to show how cool you because you can just hang out? How about a picture of you doing something adventurous or exotic? With all the options that are possible, it is best to pick pictures that represent yourself the most. Use recent pictures, and if you do decide to use one older for the aesthetic, say how old it is! Nothing is worse than going on a date to realize that your date looks 20 years older than all of his pictures because all of his pictures actually are 20 years old! Also, do NOT include pictures of others though do include full body pics as especially men want to see the whole person not just your face only.

Hobbies & Interests:

Since so many people pick potential dates from their hobbies and interests, it is important to make sure you only put things you are actually interested in. If you pick a person, have a great first date, and then have a second date to go hiking where all your date does is complain about being outside, that will probably be the end of that interest.

 

really-real-hotFirst you lie about your age, weight, or interests, what’s next? Are you married too? Or maybe a stalker? With such a misrepresentation of yourself, the odds of the date going poorly begin stacking up against you. Your date could be a total jerk and storm out spouting off at the mouth about lies. Or they might just ignore you and leaving you wondering about what happened. Online dating is more or less a way to market yourself to the masses. You wouldn’t want people to lie to you and waste your time and money, so don’t do the same to someone else. No one wants to start a relationship based on lies.

Dating or Whatever You Call it – is Hard

angryOne of the hardest aspects of a real relationship is keeping it as passionate and all-consuming as it was when it first started. After breakups and divorces, many couples say it just didn’t work anymore because they had lost that spark. As years go by, it can be difficult to remember why you got together in the first place. Keeping a real relationship can take some work, but it is worth it. Here are some things you can do to make it last.

 

  • Prioritize your relationship – A relationship isn’t something that you get and then don’t have to take care of anymore. It takes a constant effort to keep both sides together.
  • Don’t hold grudges or keep score – We all make mistakes, that is something that proves we are human, but so is forgiveness. Just because the love of your life forgot your birthday, doesn’t mean that you get a free pass to hurt him or her back. It’s better to be understanding of what is going on with both people.
  • Learn to compromise – There are always a few hiccups when two people get together to share a life. Whether that is deciding what holidays to celebrate in a multi-culture household, or understanding that work schedules are very different. It’s best to learn to give a little now and again.

    Respect your partner – Taking another’s trust holds some responsibility on your part. You may not always see eye to eye, but being angry beyond words and still having enough respect for your partner to tell them you need a timeout will mean a lot to them later. Respecting your partner at other times can also play a big role in your relationship, whether that is around friends, neighbors, at home, and even out and about.

  • Be open to real conversation – Something about communication is hard for people to fully understand. Have an open door policy with your partner. If something was said that hurt your feelings, you should be able to express that. You should also, in turn, listen to what your partner has to say.
  • Have fun and play games – It shouldn’t be all work to be around each other. When it started, there was a lot of fun, and there is no reason that there still can’t be. Make it a date!
  • Bikini Area Pic 1Don’t forget to be intimate – Every person defines intimacy different, from going all the way to holding hands while taking an evening walk. Whichever form of intimacy you prefer should be a part of your everyday life with your partner.
  • Have your own space – Call it a man cave or woman cave, but each person should have their own safe space. It can be a after-fight cool off zone, craft spot, beer during the game, or whatever you want that you and retreat to when you need some time away.

Relationships are not always easy, and they have their highs and lows. But with a little work and communication, you can continue in a happy and real relationship with the love of your life.

Does the HIPAA Privacy Rule limit an individual’s ability to gather and share family medical history information?

hipaaNo, it does not limit sharing. The HIPAA Privacy Rule may limit how a covered entity (for example, a health plan or most health care providers) uses or discloses individually identifiable health information, but does not prevent individuals, themselves, from gathering medical information about their family members or from deciding to share this information with family members or others, including their health care providers. Thus, individuals are free to provide their doctors with a complete family medical history or communicate with their doctors about conditions that run in the family.

Dating Fraud !

iSeekSugarBabyMale2There are so many rules to online dating on top of the endless rules to dating while offline. Just typing the words ‘Online Dating’ into your search browser will keep you busy reading contradicting statements of online profile dos and don’ts that you’ll never want to see the word dating again. Now, if you’ve been on a dating website for more than a day, you already know the frustration of vague profiles that look great, but don’t seem to have any real personality besides using the word fun a few million times. Every day, you’ll get mainly generic responses that feel like you were contacted through a product of copy and paste. Then the real shocker is when you finally set a date and who showed up is definitely not who was marketed in the profile. Do you want to know the secret to online dating? Being honest and real.

When you make a dating profile, you are advertising yourself.

If you are searching for a friend, partner or any other person, then you will want someone who wants the real you. Hopefully the desired end result is to hangout, meetup, play/watch sports or anything else, you want to really-real. And, if you want this to last for a long time even more important to be real. e last time, because then you will have the rest of your life to be happy and in love with that someone you find. Sometimes it helps if you have friends help point out your great qualities that should be on your profile, because we sometimes see ourselves differently than others see us.

Don’t fib, not even a little.

I don’t know many people who like to start a brand new relationship that is founded on numerous white lies. Saying that you love a popular hobby, like hiking, on your profile so it stands out is great if you like hiking; however, if you hate being outdoors and you begin dating someone who loves hiking as much as your profile persona, eventually they are going to catch on that you lied. After you have excused your way out of the sixth hiking date offer, they will probably call it quits.

Honesty doesn’t mean imperfection.

There are many ways to view the same thing. If you are a ‘stay in’ kind of person and don’t really like the social scene, then say it. “I’m not the kind of girl that likes to hang out at clubs and parties, but if you appreciate great home cooked food, Netflix, and cuddling in front of the fireplace, then I’m your kind of girl.” That sentence makes staying in sound like a fabulous time instead of – “I hate clubs and prefer to stay in on Friday nights.” That just sounds surly and like a bad time. There are ways to make any personality type or hobby sound fun for the right kind of person.

Pictures and hobbies can make or break a profile.

If you have a unique hobby like competing in archery, or are able to line dance for hours, talk about it! There is a good chance that someone will contact you because they do the same thing or are interested in your hobby. This is not the time to conform to social expectations. A picture is worth a thousand words and while we shouldn’t, people do judge a book by its cover. Take time to find the best pictures for your dating profile. If you are not satisfied with any photos you already have, take some new ones with the help of a friend or two.

ReallyReal Sex

sex2Sex is one of those topics that some people can’t seem to discuss with a new partner. There are also a lot of popular misconceptions from various sources that lead people to make not so good choices in the bedroom. The first step is talking to your partner before you get intimately involved. If you are not comfortable having that conversation yet, here are some general sex facts. However, people are not psychic and some want sex a lot. Others want more but afraid to ask. Others don’t know anything about sex but want to learn and someone to really pleasure them daily. So, get a grip on your sexual needs, wants and what you really love !

 

37260410_mlMasturbation is a normal. It does not mean that your partner isn’t getting enough, nor does it mean there is something wrong with your sex life. A high majority of people masturbate for any number of reasons, from stress relief, to sleep better, and even relieve PMS symptoms. Also, using a vibrator while masturbating, or just masturbating, will not desensitize a woman for sex later. If anything, it could heighten her pleasure because her body could be more responsive and more easily aroused. So everyone, go and masturbate as much as you like.

 

sex1Men aren’t always in the mood just like women. Whoever told you that if he says no you when you suggest sex then his up to something was very wrong. Just like women, men may turn down sex when they are not in the mood for various reasons like not feeling good, a bad day, and even tired. Let him relax, offer him a shoulder massage, and try again later. Just because he isn’t in the mood, doesn’t mean he doesn’t want you or something is wrong in the relationship.

 

There is no formula for how often you should have sex, so stop basing your sex life off those magazine quizzes. Five times a week, once a week, three times a month… whatever quantity that works for you and your partner is how often you should be getting it on. People have different sexual needs and that includes frequency. Some couples will opt for sex all the time and the more you find giving pleasure – the more you will get pleasure.

 

35843745_ml-aChanging it up in the bedroom can add a new spice, but it doesn’t mean you are lacking spice. Some couples like to experiment sexually while other a perfectly okay with always staying missionary. Discuss boundaries ahead of time so that no one will be uncomfortable. Remember that just because someone is asking to try something new, it doesn’t mean that there is anything wrong with what you already do. If you’re worried that saying no will be an issue, try suggesting something else that you would enjoy instead.

 

47748804_sSimultaneous orgasms are for erotica and romance novels. Yes it is possible to orgasm together and it can be amazing, but it is rather difficult to accomplish. It takes a lot of control from both individuals which can be difficult to control and time. Don’t consider it the goal every time you have sex, but consider it like winning on a scratch ticket or the lottery. Sex should be about pleasure not stress with who and whomever and wherever you like.

Really Real Ways For First Meetup

31174880_sNothing can make or break a relationship before it starts like a first impression. A first impression can last a lifetime, and it is important to properly represent yourself. You want to portray the real you in the first moments of contact. With something that is so important, it is easy to get it wrong. Here are some tips to make your first impression a real one.

1. Be really real on your dating profile. It will be the first impression for your date, but it will also set up their expectations of who you are on your date as well. If your date realizes that you weren’t honest on your profile, they will assume you just aren’t an honest person.

2. Dress your best. You should dress for the occasion. If you prefer a casual style, but are going to a nice restaurant, dress nice according to your comfort level. Yoga pants are usually a sign that you are not serious, unless your first date involves exercise or couch cuddling.

3. Maintain some mystery. It’s a first date; they don’t need to know your life story. Keep very personal information to yourself unless it’s important to the date. What your therapist said at your last appointment is for your BFF, not your date.

4. Stay away from hot topics. Marriage, children, religion, and politics are all something that should have been covered in the dating profile if it was extremely important. Either way, don’t bring any of these up on the first date. Even if it makes or breaks a relationship in your eyes, your date might feel a red flag that it’s being discussed on a first date. Also, never EVER ask how the date is going or how they feel that match is. It can make a date go bad or awkward real quick. Yes, talk about sex and other things you want in a relationship – calls – no calls, texting, sexting, etc. If you like the person have sex with them – there is no one survey that confirms having sex on the first date has any correlation to relationship longevity.

25568905_s5. STAY OFF YOUR CELL! Some jobs or personal matters may require you to take a phone call during a date. Try to ensure that you don’t need to, but if it is unavoidable, make sure to mention this at the start of the date, and stay off your phone unless you get that important call. Nothing is more of a bad impression than someone who has to check their cell/smartphone every 15 seconds. Nothing is more rude than texting in front of another person.

6. Be on time! Nothing is more frustrating than showing up to a first date 10 minutes early and your date arrive late. If you are too late, your date might think you stood them up and leave. It could ruin your chance at getting a second date. As one fashion model said, if you are early – you are ontime. If you are ontime – you are late. And, if you are late – you are fired !

31900636_sDating IS difficult, and finding the right person even more so. Don’t let something like a bad first impression ruin your chance at a great relationship with the right person. Oh, last remember what Patrick Swayze said in the movie Road House, “just be nice” as manners are always appreciated. You may not want to date this person but you never know about it could be a career opportunity. Oh, have fun and show your silly side. Life is too short to not have a sense of humor.

ReallyReal Friends

3-wayFinding a real friendship is hard. Many times it feels superficial or one-sided. There are a lot of people out there who will only take and never give. When it comes to real friends, you want someone who gives more than they receive; someone you can rely on. On the flip side, you also want to be the best friend you can be so you don’t lose those great friends you already have. Here are some tips about what qualities make real friends.

 

  1. Be yourself because no one enjoys bait and swap. Don’t do it to a date, potential date, or friends.

 

  1. Don’t hold unrealistic expectations about how your friends should be. High expectations of people you don’t know will always leave people falling short.

 

  1. techteen-1Don’t lie, even by omission – be really real. Being lied to is one of the worst feelings in the world. Lying by omission doesn’t count as lying, but it still feels like betrayal when the truth comes out. And the truth always comes out, sooner or later.

 

  1. Don’t judge your friends by their choices. There are many decisions and lifestyles that people make that friends will not agree with, but real friends will still support them through the trials of that choice.

 

  1. Be loyal and respect your friends because they deserve it. It is never okay to gossip about your friends. You should also defend your friend if someone else is gossiping about them. You would want your friend to do the same about you.

 

  1. Don’t argue and forgive your friend. Everyone makes mistakes. You make mistakes, your friends make mistakes, even those that seem perfect make mistakes. Instead of holding grudges or keeping score, a real friend will forgive a mistake.

 

  1. Be there for your friends, at their best and their worst. You always have friends when things are great, but many of them seem to disappear when things get rough. Be reliable for your friends by being there for them when they are at their worst, because you would want them to be there for you. However, set the parameters NOW that if you can’t be there for them ALL the time or most of the time. Also, make it clear you are NOT going to bail them out of jail.

 

  1. Find time and stick to common interests. Everyone has more fun when everyone can relate to hang out spots. If they want to do something that isn’t on your favorite list, compromise a bit and agree to one day for them and one day for you.

    Keep things 50/50. No one wants to be ignored while your friend only talks about themselves 24/7.

 

  1. Make an effort. Just like any relationship, it takes an effort on both sides to keep the relationship strong. There are those rare friendships where you can pick up where you left off years later, but that isn’t true for everyone.

 

  1. No negativity zone. Everyday life can be difficult and being negative all the time can wear down friendships. There should always be a positive area and people in your life where you can de-stress. That’s what friends are for.

 

  1. Remain independent and boundaries. Even though you want your friends to be there for you when you need them, you shouldn’t rely on them for everything. It’s healthy to be able to handle some things on your own, but not everything. Find a sweet halfway point between totally independent and totally dependent.
