The name id of Hebrew origin and it means "the vow to God." Elizaveta immediately comes down as a mischievous and fidgety creature, such a frolicsome and charming child whose obedience will not last a minute. She needs everything to know!

To keep her friends company Elizaveta will attend sewing and knitting courses although gained knowledge is seldom of any practical value. Elizaveta often wants to seem better than she is and that give her impetus to act extravagantly of what she is later remorseful. El [...]

It was only fitting: On a day wh [...]
[2006-10-04] Chinese Women Empowered by Divorce
The divorce rate in China has been on the increase every year since the 1990s. Many insightful people at the time wrote about the abuse and damage associated with divorce, including some who even stressed avoiding the risk of it becoming fashionable, and I have the memory from the early 1950s of this very thing happening.China's first marriage law was promulgated in 1950 in opposition to bigamy and concubinage and was propagandized nationally. Polygamy was inherited from pre-1949 China but could not be dealt with purely by administrative measures, so that the tradition of "second houses," "thi [...]

[2006-10-03] Matchmaker, matchmaker...
The Krishnans have been looking for a bride for their son for over two years now. Local marriage bureaus, newspapers and even their family networks haven’t helped them find the perfect girl. They are now considering turning to the Internet — they’ve heard of these huge databases of prospective brides, available at the press of a button. Trouble is, the Krishnans aren’t computer literate, nor do they have access to the Internet. That’s the cue for the entry of Janaki Sharma, a Mumbai-based housewife who has taken on the franchise for an offline centre of one of the leading web-based matri [...]

[2006-10-03] Sex and the Future of Russian Society
The prevailing Cold War perception of the Soviet Union and Russia was that of a very conservative, restrained society. In school, we were led to believe that this was simply a society of dark clad folks, mechanically going about their predetermined daily routines. They were not associated with images of promiscuity of any kind. Sex and Russia are terms not typically used together. Today's reality is much different and tragic. As a result of 'freedom,' sex related magazines, and other products, are sold openly and it's not unusual to see couples 'making out' in public. Ironically, a park benc [...]
[2006-10-03] Mobile Dating Sucks
At Idate lots of companies where trying to sell mobile dating, but every owner I talked to said thought mobile dating was a joke and would never amount to much. The basic problem is that there is no such thing as mobile dating. Sure you can put up profiles and make it look like a dating site but no one actuallyuses it. People who use “mobile dating” are mostly under the age of 24 and are looking to chat with others. Mobile dating as it stands today is nothing more then a chat line, and most of the mobile “dating” users don’t even have computers. Online daters on the other hand are between ages [...]

[2006-10-03] Sex and the city and the English department
There's that awkward moment in a new romance when the other person says or does something that instantly derails the whole enterprise. You've been sailing along contentedly for weeks, giddy with fulfillment, and then suddenly, a minor provocation, and that queasy feeling sets in: What am I doing with this guy?The offense needn't be significant. For instance, if you're a person who cares about language, as does the English professor hero of "Tolstoy Lied," Rachel Kadish's cheekily titled new novel, the following gaffe in the middle of a philosophical discussion would sound the death knell.Tracy [...]

Dating now has become a challenge compared with when they were in their 20s. John Drysdale, 46, divorced in 2001. He says finding someone his age who is educated, single and ready to settle down is a rare thing. "The demographics are definitely different," says the southwest Minneapolis resident. "When I was in my 20s, everyone was single and in the same boat. Now, the majority of people I know in their 40s are all married, and here I am — single again." Going to ba [...]

[2006-10-02] Singles looking to build new friendships
Singles looking to build new friendships, experience new things and even travel abroad should look no further than the Tri-Cities, writes Lara Gerrits Maurina Thomas giggles like a high school girl when she relays her latest tale of romance. But much has changed since the 50-year-old Port Moody woman began dating decades ago. Instead of eyeing someone in the halls of school, she looked for profiles that intrigued her on Yahoo Personals.

[2006-10-02] Let Romance Motivate Us
All of us need motivation. We eat because we feel hungry. We drink water because we are thirsty. We do everything in life for a reason. For living, we only need air, water, food and shelter. But we are much more evolved than animals. So we want to achieve something in life that satisfies us. That makes us feel a success. All of us have our own goals. Some of us have goals that look highly impossible. But history tells us that this has been done. Unknown people born in unknown families have amassed wealth beyond imagination. Great painters were born in small places but today the whole world k [...]
[2006-10-02] Single best reason for a plan
A MAN is not a financial plan. And no one knows that better than 33-year-old Brisbane art director Kristin Poulter. "Money was not a problem for me when I was in an eight-year relationship, but that all changed when we broke up," she says. "Suddenly I found myself on my own with credit card bills and no real financial plan for the future. "I had a good job, but realised I was doing nothing constructive with my money. I met a woman at a party who told me I should see a financial planner and take control. "I did just that and worked out a five-year plan. Within 12 months I had bought an apar [...]
[2006-10-02] Why Foreign Brides Are Hot
One in four Singapore men married foreign brides last year, as such marriages hit a 10-year high.CH Yeo is 42 years old, has a bachelor's degree majoring in design from Australia, and works as an interior designer and part-time lecturer.It is a pretty decent resume for any prospective girlfriend, but when it came to dating Singaporean women, Yeo thought his plump, 1.5m frame put him at a distinct disadvantage."I've heard the girls look for handsome guys and will start looking at you 360 degrees. I don't want to be in that situation."So he joined a growing band of higher-educated Singaporean me [...]
[2006-10-02] Single or married: the pros and cons
Single or married: Which is better? It’s a question that just might be crossing Tie Domi’s mind at the moment. It’s always been said that single people want to be married while married folk long to be single again. But is this true anymore? With so many singles of all ages (over 7 million men and women in Canada between 20-65), especially in the 40-plus range, (the biggest growing demographic of singles), and the world more accepting of the single status than ever before, is singledom no longer such a reluctant state? After all, being single is being free-as-a-bird, only responsible [...]
