|[2007-09-17] Dating Advice: Making First Contact with a Woman|
|Remember when you were a kid and you used to play silly games with girls like pulling their hair, play-fighting, and throwing dirt on them? The reason you did this stuff was because it was sure to get their attention. Fast forward to today and they still love this kind of playful teasing that borders on being mean. Now, you have to be sure not to do this in a truly mean way. It should be done in a fun and playful way.
Here’s one example you play use this playful teasing to establish touch with a woman. I like to actually start a play fight with a girl. This is not good at the initial pick-u [...] |
|[2007-09-17] Dating Advice: You Have To Make a Woman Feel|
|You can buy a woman flowers for the next ten years and it won’t matter unless you make her FEEL an attraction to you. Women don’t care how things work; they care how things make them feel. In all of the romance novels and soap operas women have been devouring since they were kids, the leading males are always untamable, strong men who sweep women off their feet.
This is the quality that many “jerks” have. Women don’t like the fact that the guy is actually a jerk – it’s just that jerks have a tendency to have more of this primal, uncontrollable dominance that the weaker, “nice” guys don’t h [...] |
|[2007-09-17] Dating Advice: Don’t Let Her Hurt Your Feelings|
|If you want to make the battle of attracting women easier for yourself, you need to sharpen your weapons. If you went into a battle would you be content with rusty tanks and outdated guns? Of course not. In the same way, you shouldn’t go out to meet women with a sub par appearance.
All you need are 3 great pairs of pants/jeans and 3 great shirts - spend the big money on them. Don’t but 50 cheap $10 shirts. Until you get a serious girlfriend. Then you’ll have to get more variety because she’ll start to notice that you only wear the same shirts. But in all practicality you only need a couple [...] |
|[2007-09-17] Dating Advice: Don’t Let Her Hurt Your Feelings|
|Part of being a real man and not falling into the nice guy “friend zone” is not letting her hurt your feelings easily. Never let her think she hurt your feelings or struck a nerve with you even when she actually does. Just like the age old saying goes, "Never let em see you sweat". When she knows she can hurt your feelings with her words she'll see that as insecurity. And when you really examine it, it is insecurity.
Women can make some really belittling comments without realizing it and sometimes purposely to strike a nerve and test you. That's right; women will actually use these belittl [...] |
|[2007-09-17] Dating Advice: What American Idol Can Teach Us about Attracting Women|
|When used correctly, arrogance can be an amazing tool to help you attract women. When you’re slightly arrogant, females want to find a redeeming softer side to you. If you're too arrogant or rude you will blow your chances.
Let's look at Simon Cowell for a minute. When we first saw Simon on American Idol our first instinct was to hate the guy. We all said, "What an arrogant bastard". Now us guys thought that and probably never gave it a second thought, but women around the world starting digging deeper. They thought, "There's got to be something more to this guy". Then as the season went on [...] |
|[2007-09-17] Dating Advice: A Woman’s Genetic Programming|
|Whether we want to admit it or not, human beings are to a large degree victims of our genetic programming. No matter what a woman says or how civilized, cultured or progressive she tries to be, she has very specific evolutionary characteristics that she’s attracted to.
This is great news for us because all we have to do is embrace those characteristics and we’ll have women falling all over us. A major character trait that females of all species are programmed to be attracted to is status.
In the animal kingdom females are told by Mother Nature to mate with the dominant males of her speci [...] |
|[2007-09-17] Be a Good Guy – Not A Nice Guy|
|Guys who describe themselves as the nice guy are always saying things like, “Why do nice guys finish last?” The answer is - they don't… Weak guys finish last. Very often behaviors that you call nice are perceived by women as weak. And they are usually right. So Mr. Nice Guy, get ready for a rude awakening - You are really Mr. Weak Guy. The gauge you are using to qualify your “niceness” is way off.
You need to think in terms of being a GOOD guy, not a NICE guy. Women really don't want jerks. They want many of the qualities that a jerk portrays but they don't want you to really be a mean jer [...] |
|[2007-09-17] Dating Advice: Don’t Set Off Her “Player Alarm”|
A major mistake that many guys make is dimming the lights as soon as they get the girl onto the couch. This is one of several “Player Alarms” that men often do that make women think, “Oh God, he’s about to make a move”. Another thing that a lot of guys do is turn on some romantic music right away. This is another major alarm that screams, “I ‘m a player and I’m about to try to get into your pants”.
A smooth guy is careful not to set off these alarms in women. A smooth guy let’s her flip through the TV channels for a while, keeps the conversation going for a little bit and then casually s [...] |
|[2007-09-17] Learn To Attract Women: Preparing For the Approach|
|The First step when mentally preparing for the “task” of actually going out and meeting women is to think of the absolute worst that can happen. The absolute worst thing that will happen is she says something like “get lost loser”. Now the chances of her saying this are very slim. If she’s not interested she’ll be more likely to say something like, “I have a boyfriend” or she’ll just try to ignore you and turn to talk to her friends.
So - now that you have a clear vision of the worst thing that can happen, say to yourself, “If that does happen, I can handle it. I can walk away with my prid [...] |

|The Blacksmith Institute says three of the hotspots are in Russia, with the remainder dotted in various countries.
Heavy metals such as lead are the main sources of pollution, with 10 million people affected across the locations.
The institute surveyed scientists and environmental bodies across the world to compile its list, and is running clean-up projects in some of the sites.

|[2007-09-12] The governor of a central Russian province urged couples to skip work on Wednesday and make love instead to help boost Russia's low birth-rate.|
|And if a woman gives birth in exactly nine months time -- on Russia's national day on June 12 -- she will qualify for a prize, perhaps even winning a new home.
"It's normally something for the home -- a fridge or a television set," Yelena Yakovleva at the Ulyanovsk regional administration press office, said.
"It doesn't matter if it's a girl or a boy."
Newly-weds Karina and Anton Bukhanovsky walked hand in hand down the main street of the regional capital of Ulyanovsk. They live in St Petersburg but travelled to Ulyanovsk to soak up the atmosphere on Wednesday.

|[2007-09-10] Tens of thousands more immigrant workers will be forced to learn English before they are allowed into the country, The Sunday Telegraph can reveal.|
|The controversial crackdown, which is expected to reduce the number of people entering Britain by at least 35,000-a-year, will be unveiled by Gordon Brown in a speech to the Trades Union Congress in Brighton.
The rules will affect those seeking to work and settle permanently in Britain from countries outside the European Union.
Mr Brown's aides said that the initiative, which will be seen as another shift to the Right following the Prime Minister's moves to block supercasinos and to review the decision to reclassify cannabis as a less dangerous drug, will form a "key plank" of the government [...] |
|[2007-09-04] IMPORTANT CHANGES IN UKRAINIAN IMMIGRATION LAW|
|On July 26, 2007, the Government of Ukraine published an amendment to its immigration law. The amendment is called Resolution 917 and contains several provisions, only one of which appears to affect U.S. citizens. The verbatim English translation of the relevant provision of the Resolution is as follows: "'Registration is done for short term visits - for foreigners and stateless persons from countries which have visa regime - for the duration of the visa, but for no more than 90 days, unless otherwise stipulated by the international treaties; for foreigners and stateless persons from countries [...] |

|The divorce rate in England and Wales fell to its lowest level in more than two decades, according to new statistics out today.
Bucking the trend: Paul McCartney and Heather Mills

|[2007-08-29] So where do you go to find a date on the Central Coast? Dating is a numbers game. Here’s how to increase your chances|
|During high school and college, most of us are surrounded by single members of the opposite gender. Finding appropriate people to date is seldom an issue. The odds are stacked in our favor.
But the situation changes dramatically as soon as we receive a diploma. Suddenly we’re thrust into the work environment with folks who are either already taken or who are decades away from being the right age. Our number of potential partners seems to dwindle the older we get. And if it’s been years since we’ve been in the dating arena, the pool of candidates seems to have evaporated and blown away.

|[2007-08-29] She has Cupid's arrow in her purse|
|Sophia McDonald believes she has Cupid's arrow in her purse.
Forget the fact that she is single. She's got a large database of contacts and a certificate from the Matchmaking Institute in New York. So this modern-day Emma is leaving her career as a real estate broker to put her own spin on the age-old art of matchmaking.
"I believe I have a lot of intuition," says McDonald, 34, who is launching a company called Sophisticated Matching. "I'm very spiritual and sensitive. When I meet people, I tend to understand them very well."
There were an estimated 1,300 independent matchmakers in the Unit [...] |
|[2007-08-28] Turkmen women and men used to be the most expensive brides and grooms in the world.|
|Turkmen women and men used to be the most expensive brides and grooms in the world. That was until President Saparmurat Niyazov scrapped a rule forcing foreigners to pay a so-called "insurance deposit" of $50,000 to marry a citizen of Turkmenistan. This week, he issued a new decree he said was aimed at protecting Turkmens married to foreigners. But neither change is likely to mean much to the foreigners who marry Turkmens the most -- people living in the border regions of Uzbekistan. For them, legal matrimony remains as difficult as ever.
Prague, 10 June 2005 (RFE/RL) -- Kumush Narziyeva is a [...] |
|[2007-08-25] Foreigners given green light to buy into Russian banks|

|[2007-08-18] Take online dating seriously|
|When I look at allot of the online dating services I notice one common trend. People take it very seriously into finding there true love. I find it absolutely amazing the amount of people who are looking for there absolute perfect match.
There seems to be so many profiles out there who tell people exactly what it is they want from a partner. Its as if there an owner of a company and there trying to fill a certain job position. They then take and list there requirements and what they expect from a person. If they don't meet those requirements then they think there unsuitable. I think that's c [...] |
|[2007-08-09] Canada survey found over 1 million mature Canadians (generally speaking between the age of 30 and 55) are single|
|Lili, a 33-year-old financial officer who never married, emigrated from Eastern Europe only three years ago, leaving family, friends, and her entire support structure behind. She says she began to search the Internet for hints on how to meet people because she really didn’t have any friends here. But she soon found out Internet searches can be an eye opener. “There are weird people there, and all kinds of ugly things promoted,” she says. “I’m not saying that I’m picky, but I’m looking for a decent person — no sex stories — and the chances of meeting someone decent on the Internet are very smal [...] |
|[2007-08-09] Number of unmarried Hong Kong women living on their own shot up 48% over the past five years - from 127,001 in 2001 to 182,648 last year|
|In this city of nearly 7 million people, lonely guys - 185,005 of whom were identified by the census - still outnumber lonely girls, but their ranks have increased at a rate (14.1%) much less dramatic than that for single women. In addition, over the next 30 years, romantic prospects are projected to get progressively worse for women as more and more men get the pick of the lot. The growing solitude of Hong Kong women is exacerbated by the city's gender ratio, which is skewed - at least as far as romance is concerned - in favor of men. As of last year, according the census, there were 912 men [...] |
