TGIF: 10 Ways To Avoid Embarrassment On A Date!

Who doesn’t want to go on a date? Then, who do you want to go on a date with? Before shouting ‘yes, see you there’ there are some key factors one needs to consider before kicking off to that moment of a life time. Wait! What kind of date are we talking about here? OK  whatever the date type is or wherever the meeting is to take place, it’s very important you make space to withstand any form of embarrassment.
KNOW YOUR DATE



It’s common in Lagos in particular that some people get to see their date partners at the venue; after very few phone calls, pings or SMSs. This is insane! If you guys don’t get to talk about each other for a long time, you won’t know a single thing about him/her. Likes, dislikes, background, career, police records, seen authentic pictures (i.e tell him to take instant pics and send). Jeez! That’s the first step! So you guys could relate on a friendly basis.
Be mischievous…Please
This is before and after you arrive the venue. Ask teaser questions like, “what do you like to eat on a date?”, “what’s your most expensive date?” With these prior questions (while becoming friends), you could weigh how far and expensive that date could be. So that when he/she asks you, “where do you want to go tonight?” or “What are you eating dear?” You have an accurate response.
Choose the venue.
It’s important that you who is being invited should choose the venue for the date right? Not so fast. What about the person making the invitation? The guy should have a say on where he’s taking the lady to. In order not to be embarrassed that you are given the choice of an eatery and a hotel restaurant, do make the suggestions where your cash could afford. It’s easy!
Check Your outfit, make up and …wallet!

Never leave for a date unkempt! It’s demeaning and disrespectful especially after being informed where you are going to. Don’t go for an ‘arm-bag’ look cause you will find yourself at the background every time making the other person feeling superior. So after a good look at yourself in the mirror, look for your cash-bag or wallet! Never ever forget your wallet at home when heading out for a date. You might end up washing plates to make up for you food/drinks.
Don’t Call your Friends on your date!
It’s unheard of and that’s why our men keep insulting us as ‘gold diggers’. Na only you dem call. Wetin concern ya buddies in all dis?My friend pack well! It’s very insulting and you’ll end up embarrassing the poor dude. What if he had no money for three or four? And for the guys, you better insist on that chic to come alone. Say something like this, “Babe I can’t wait to spend this time with us alone. You know we have very busy schedules so let’s just go out to have fun!” Lighten it up so she doesn’t feel terrible if she had that tragic plan in mind.
Be Prompt!
This means keep to time! Make him/her know it’s imperative to be time conscious at all times. At least that accident that happened 20 minutes ago missed you! This also means one person doesn’t feel ‘stood up’ before you arrive or breathe a heavy sigh of relief when you finally show up. Not cool. You two are not in any competition so no one is supposed to chill for the other. You are out to have equal fun time. So please do not be a lazy a**. Still on time, avoid looking at your watch too often. this makes the one person feel he is boring or you have another date somewhere else. Stop!
Never Ever Forget your ATM!
Even if you forgot your wallet, please grab your ATM card which has money in it! Don’t end up b**tching about who should pay for what which the other person didn’t budget for. With a valid ATM, you can afford to walk off the date anytime if things get so boring or irritating. You have no idea what an ATM card can do in those situations?
Give out your wallet at some point!


This one came from a close friend and works with the guys. When you head out with that chic and she enters this well stocked shop and wants everything in it, just hand her your wallet and go sit. The point is, when she sees how much is in that wallet, she will know what to order! But wait! Make sure you ain’t carrying foreign currencies init oh else your name na ‘one chance’ when she returns. Be careful!
Don’t Be A Talkative
No one is saying you shouldn’t be yourself on a date, but you guys are also getting to know each other’s…good side first!Pouring out irrelevant sentences out of your
large mouth won’t help anything. Reason out, be matured. So know what to say and when to say it! That’s just common sense!
Eat Right!
By this i mean don’t order the entire food store because you are not the one paying. Furthermore,this may sound ridiculous but your manner of eating could determine if there will be another date or not. I’m serious! Friday night, Saturday Night are best for dates coz no work the next day (not to all). So you may probably have the intention to eat to the fullest and go to party or dose off in bed later. Please do not eat like you haven’t eaten in a whole year or throw food all over the place like you are two! It’s embarrassing not only for you but to the other person just watching the mess! Be warned!
Bonus!
Avoid your phone during a date for the love of God neither do you bring a book along! Maybe by the time you raise your head, your date has dashed off the door.

After all these things, you would return home fulfilled or regret why you went out in the first place. Don’t be stupid, just do the right thing! Dates are meant to be fun for two people so please do not make it hell for one person! Like our Facebook page

UNDERSTANDING HOW ATTRACTION WORKS FOR WOMEN

ATTRACTION IS DIFFERENT FOR WOMEN THAN IT IS FOR MEN - VERY DIFFERENT The reality is that you CAN stop this negative pattern if you WANT to. But the key is: 1) Understanding how ATTRACTION works for WOMEN. 2) Understanding YOURSELF, so you don't ALLOW yourself to act like a Wussy, become boring and turn a good thing into a bad one... but instead you do the RIGHT things to keep everything on the right track. If you know how to make a woman feel ATTRACTION for you, then you can control your destiny with women. If you DON'T know how to make a woman feel ATTRACTION for you, then you cannot control your destiny with women. Read that paragraph again, and think about it for a minute before you go on. OK, so I mentioned that ATTRACTION is very different for women than it is for men. Different how? What do I mean by that? ...Well, generally speaking, for a woman, ATTRACTION is a PROCESS... not an "event." It happens over time, and it becomes stro…

Reasons Why Some Women Remains Single

No one knows this better than Human Behavior Expert Wendy Walsh, Ph.D. who believes wholeheartedly that what men and women today need most is to just slow things down. Walsh insists her beliefs are based purely on scientific research and economics – all of which she tackles in her upcoming new book,  The 30-Day Love Detox: Cleanse Yourself of Bad Boys, Cheaters, and Commitment Phobes Commitment Phobes, which hits stands this spring. “It’s a much-needed prescription for slow love at a time when everything is fast,” says Walsh“This book is empowering women and telling them about the amazing creatures and goddesses they are and the power they have. It’s not about pointing out all of the mistakes that they make.” In the book, Walsh tackles the top 5 myths women operate on that, she believes, are still keeping them single. Intrigued, right? We were too. Grab your notebooks, as we ask Walsh to break it down for us......

25 Warning Signs Of A Possible Breakup In Your Relationship

I
understood that every stage of a relationship
comes with uncertainties and the possibility of
surviving at such moments would depend on
the strength of the both parties. It would be a
matter of concern if you or your partner
chooses to deal with it alone. Break-up do
happen, even to promising relationships, it’s
mostly prompted by contrary influence,
incompatibility or inability to compromise some
standards. Whichever way it comes, there are
signs foretelling the possibility of a split in your
relationship and from my experience as a
relationship counselor, I've gathered 25 signs
for both genders that should get your attention.

contradictory.

* When she makes important decisions without
your consent.
* When she gets mad at minor issues.
* When you’re alone and nothing seems missing

For Women: 5 Dangers Of Lesbianism

Numerous factors have been shown to be associated with increased risk of various health problems.

Today we present general information about some of the factors that put women at higher risk of cancer. As for lesbian health research in general, information is limited on the prevalence of particular health risk factors among lesbians. The Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) provides one useful source of data for looking at differences between lesbian and heterosexual women in the study in terms of certain health-related risk variables. 1. Religious Implication or Wrath of God Lev. 18:22, “You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.”1
Lev. 20:13, “If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltness is upon them” Unlike other sins, homosexuality has a heavy judgment administered by God Himself upon those who commit it – and support it. This…

With these tips, you would learn how to show a man you love him in ways he will truly appreciate.



1. Your Undivided Attention

MISTAKES WOMEN MAKE DURING SEX

1) Don't Fake It its no secret we love women who have orgasms but faking it to please us only robs you of the pleasure you deserve and we want you to have. Besides, if we think we are doing it right, it only makes us repeat the same style that achieved the fictitious result, and only takes you further away from actually having orgasms with us. What a shame. If it is our first time together, let us get off to an honest beginning. If you do not have an orgasm, and he asks if you did, be honest and tell him the truth. The more you like the man, the more honest you need to be with him.

2) Show & Tell Men are not mind readers. If you are not having orgasms with us, show and tell us what we need to do, and do not be afraid of appearing too liberated. Men love a challenge, especially this one, and real men admire women who can talk us through it. Give honest feedback and lead us to the finish line. It is difficult to please a woman who cannot please herself. If you do not know what to…

Women’s Health – 9 Factors That Affect The Health Of The Female sex organ( V**Ina!!! )

Vaginal health is an important part of a woman’s overall health. Vaginal problems can affect your fertility, desire for s*x and ability to reach climax. Ongoing vaginal health issues can also affect other areas of your life, causing stress or relationship problems and impacting your self-confidence.


What affects vaginal health?
The v**ina is a closed muscular canal that extends from the vulva — the outside of the female private part area — to the neck of the uterus (cervix). Various factors can affect your v**ina, some modifiable and some not. They include - 1. Unprotected s*x. You might contract a sexually transmitted infection if you have unprotected s*x. 2. Aggressive s*x or pelvic fracture. Forceful s*x or an injury to the pelvic area can result in vaginal trauma. 3. Certain health conditions. Diabetes and Sjogren’s syndrome — an autoimmune disorder — can cause vaginal dryness. 4. Medications and feminine-hygiene products. Prolonged use of antibiotics increases the risk of a vagin…
