Christmas Dating Tips – How to Avoid Dating Problems at Christmas

As the holiday season is, literally, right around the corner, you may be interested in some dating tips, specifically when it comes to Christmas. There are various types of issues that might come up when dating during the holiday season, but they do not have to be serious. It totally depends on how you choose to handle any of these issues that you may or may not confront during the holidays.  Following are some Christmas dating tips that you may find to be rather useful this holiday season:


  • Try to avoid dating someone new: Typically, meeting someone new and going on a date with them is not the greatest of ideas during the holidays. Obviously, there are many reasons that this might work but, for the most part, the holidays are meant to be enjoyed with family and close friends. When you first meet someone, you will be trying to get to know each other better and see whether you would like to take things further. With all of the excitement as well activity surrounding Christmas celebrations, it is not the best time to make life changing decisions such as deciding if you have just met the love of your life or not. Many families and friends like to play match maker, so please try to get in front of that happening to you.
  • Do not introduce your partner to your family for the first time: Now, this one can have a little wiggle room if you have been talking about your partner to your family and friends for a while. Usually, Christmas is not the ideal time to introduce someone new to your family because of all the activity and anxiety that comes with Christmas. Yes, it is a wonderful time of year, but there are gifts to be given, food to be prepared, and parties to be attended. In addition, your partner may not actually like being around a lot of strangers during Christmas. Try to pick a less stressful time to introduce your love to your family and friends.
  • Discuss whether you will exchange gifts: Obviously, if you are already a couple, you probably already know what each other likes. That means you will have the gift exchange figured out by now. On the other hand, if you have only been dating someone for a few days or a few weeks, a gift may not be required. If gifts are exchanged after a very short time of dating, they should probably be more impersonal rather than something personal.
  • Hit up a restaurant for Christmas dinner: Lots of people have been raised with the idea of family dinners held at Christmas. This means lots of cooking and cleaning up after the meal. If you and your person of interest live far away from your families, choosing to have dinner on Christmas at a restaurant that is specializing in something like this may be a better idea. You do not have to cook and clean. All you have to do is get dressed up, go to the restaurant, enjoy a calm, leisurely dinner, and come back home. This allows you to spend a lot more quality time with each other.
  • Go easy on the alcohol: Everyone knows that consuming a glass of wine or champagne during the holidays is normal.  After all, it is a time of celebration. However, knowing your alcohol limit is imperative to enjoying a date at Christmas. Alcohol can lower your inhibitions as well as raise your voice. Being drunk is not attractive to anyone. You run the risk of appearing loud and foolish, acting inappropriately, and generally just embarrassing yourself. There is also a strong chance that you will end up getting sick in front of everyone due to being drunk. Now, is anyone going to want to kiss you after seeing that? Would you want to kiss anyone who had just been sick? Probably not.
  • Compromise: If you and your partner have been together for a long while or a short while, the question of where the two of you will be spending Christmas is going to arise.  If your families live in the same vicinity, it is quite possible for you to make it to both families celebrations. On the other hand, if your families live significantly far from you, your partner or both; there may need to be a discussion as to how you will divide your holiday time. A compromise is nearly always necessary unless there are some special circumstances involved. It might be that you will have to alternate who you will spend Christmas with each year. For instance, you may need to spend Thanksgiving at one family’s house and Christmas at the other one’s house. Then, the next year you will just swap. There is always a compromise of some sort to be made.



Keep things stress free and fun to have a wonderful holiday!

Learning to Trust When Dating

There is usually a reason when you meet someone new or agree to meet them. Sometimes it is because you need something from these people such as a favor or you simply find it to be fun with them. Maybe you are seeking a new career opportunity. It might be speed dating night and you hope you will meet someone who will suddenly fall in love with you for the person you are.

What you probably ignore when you decide to jump into that sea of dating, whether it is speed dating, blind dating or online dating, all of you seem to have trust in a very limited amount while holding onto a huge amount of protection and barriers. The reasons for these trust issues tend to relate to previous negative dating experiences that you cannot help but carry with you. Even if you are staring at a shiny new gorgeous man standing right in front of you giving you a sexy smile.

While it may be difficult, you can meet new people who are not like those people you could not previously trust. Get used to meeting and mingling with new people. You cannot slip into an ideal dating situation as long as you continue to feel anxious, nervous, and blush while acting like a jerk. This just makes people uncomfortable and feel as if you think you are superior to them. Following are the three vital steps in learning to trust people and assist you in improving your dating process.

  • Learn to build relationships no matter who the person is.

Everyone is totally spoiled lately when it comes to gaining instant gratification. If you are hungry, you eat someone right then. If you are tired, you take a nap without even thinking about it. When you feel unloved, you head to the internet to find out how many men you can attract.

That is all great and wonderful for shopping and social media where everything has a typical immediate response. On the other hand, relationships are a lot different. It takes patience, time, determination and understanding someone else’s point of view. Most important of all, you need to accept that it is fine for someone else to have a different perspective to you.

Now, where should you start? What about your friends and family? When is the last time you have seen them? Did you pay attention to their stories, complaints or issues? Were you happy to be a part of their world? If you do not want to take the time to involve your energy and time in the lives of others, why would they want to do the same for you? After all, fair is fair.

  • Learn to enjoy the company of a stranger.

It might sound like a simple thing to do, but people are so tightly wound in their lives and the way they live them that change is a bit difficult. In fact, they typically have such rigid schedules that they do not go anywhere that will allow them to meet someone new. If they do go out, it is usually with close friends. When you continue things this way, how will you ever meet someone new?

The simplest way is to add something new to your schedule that will put you in the company of strangers. Try signing up for a class in something that you are interested in learning how to do. Some ideas are writing, photography, wine tasting and, possibly, something to do with music or acting. If you are in the company of strangers with your same interests, there is an excellent chance of meeting someone promising and exciting.

  • Learn to enjoy the company of the opposite gender, no matter what your preference of sexual gender.


Step three is intensely important because any future dates you have will come with friends, sisters, and brothers. You will want to be polite to them while also feeling comfortable around them.


In this step, you must use your imagination. Again, you can use the part about taking classes only this time is a bit different. You will sign up for something where you will definitely meet people of the opposite gender. For example, take a class of some sport activity. Most women like such things as book clubs, drawing classes, cooking classes, art classes, and running clubs. They also enjoy writing, photography, yoga, and wine tasting. On the other hand, guys tend to like snowboarding and skiing, paintballing, music producing, cycling, bouldering, poker, fishing, beer brewing, sailing and investing.


This will allow you to be more gender balanced so you can have a great chance to meet    someone special.  If you have successfully finished all of these steps, you might just be enjoying your third date by now.


Seven Important Dating Lessons to Know During Bank Holiday

Many people enter into dating with a rather naïve attitude towards the experience. They are so trusting of the people they date that it is always a shock for them to discover that it was all a lie. Following are seven dating lessons that you need to know to become a dating expert.

  • If someone keeps flaking on you and says they are too busy, then they are not serious about you.


One important thing that you should always remember is that if someone really likes you, they will make the time to spend with you. When they keep making excuses, that means they do not really care about you. No one is too busy to come up with five minutes during the day to text you. Even if they happen to be sincerely that busy, a person who truly cares about you will apprise you of their situation rather than string you along with half-ass dating and rarely contacting you. The point is that if you are not important enough to rate a three to five minute phone call out of 24 hours, they do not really care about you and it is time to kick them to the curb. Why waste your time on someone who does not deserve it?


  • People treat you the way you allow them to.


Have you ever dated an older man who works a lot? If so, you may have noticed that he typically would cut short your date, plan all activities around his schedule, and may have even blamed you if something did not go right between the two of you. If this happened to you, why did you stay with him after the first time he tried to lord things over you? It is ok if you did because what usually happens is that women make excuses for his rude actions along with simply ignoring all of the red flags that went up around this man. You may have even started to doubt yourself and believe that you were the one in the wrong. Actually, the only thing you might have done wrong is not stand up for yourself often enough. This man can only treat you badly if you allow him to do so. He probably knew that you would tolerate his rude actions. Do not waste your time on men like these. They will hold you back and keep you unhappy.


  • When someone tells you something about themselves; believe what they say.

“I’m just an average guy.” “I really do not do well with dating.” “I’m so busy these days, I probably won’t have time to devote to a relationship.”  When they say it, they know it. Putting you off is not something they care about. So if someone tells you these things, believe them and run away as fast as you can. That is, unless you just want a one night stand. Then go for it and leave.


  • If a guy shows you that he does not care, then he truly does not care about you.


Many women date guys that do not treat them in the best way. In fact, they might just suddenly vanish on you, leaving you to wonder what you did wrong. Then, when these men reappear, they treat you horrible and you feel as if he is just covering up his genuine feelings for you. That way of thinking could not be more wrong. If a man is mean to you, it means that he does not care about you at all. Besides, you might have already decided that if a man really likes you, he would not have disappeared in the first place. You may remember your parents telling you that actions speak louder than words. They were not wrong. Actions are what mean the most. Look closely at how a guy treats you. His actions will tell you everything you need to know.


  • Drinking too much alcohol on the first few dates is a bad idea.


Typically, when there is too much alcohol involved on a date, it will probably lead to sex. You might even drunkenly signal that you are fine with being a sex buddy without realizing what you are doing. When you drink too much, you will most likely lose control of your actions and end up with disastrous results. Usually, when you have a few first dates, you want to keep them short with lighthearted fun. When both people are sober, they can reliably get a fair view of each other.


  • Be honest and up front regarding your expectations and things will be much simpler.


If both of you know what the expectations of the relationship are, then you can see if you are both on the same page. You will not have to worry about leading anyone on because you have been honest with your intentions. If your communication has been clear, you will either have the relationship you want, or you can both go your separate ways with no hard feelings.


  • If you are not getting what you need in a romantic relationship, you need to change things.


Think of life as a huge experiment. When you show yourself to be different, people will act differently to you. To get what you want, you cannot keep doing things the same way. You need to look at what you might be doing wrong or where you can make changes. If you continue to do the same things repeatedly, you will never find that ideal relationship. Keep in mind that you will still make mistakes from time to time. That is actually a good thing, though, because it will remind you of the mistakes you made in the past

The best advice to follow when you are dating and trying to find a loving relationship is to be positive. Move forward and do not hold on to the past. You will find the “Right One” when the time is right.


My advice is that, be positive, stop crying over spilt milk and think about what could be done instead. Finally, embrace yourself. At. All. Time.

Costs of Average UK Wedding Now More than £25,000

UK couples planning the wedding of their dreams must now be ready to pay more than £25,000 for their big day. A recent survey of over 3,000 brides shows that the average wedding in the UK is now a huge £25,090.

The most expensive part of a wedding in the UK is hiring the venue. This can run an average of £3,738 which is 14.8 percent of the entire cost. It is an important part of the cash outlay as, according to the survey, finding the perfect venue for the wedding was the top priority for brides planning their big day. This was more important than setting the budget and putting together the guest list.

Second on the priority list was the honeymoon. The average cost of a dream honeymoon averages £3,366, which is 13.4 percent of the whole budget. Next, was the cost of food for the reception that hit around £3,072, which is 12.2 percent of the full wedding budget.

The survey was conducted through the wedding website called It was through this survey that the discovery was made that the average wedding costs had increased 21 percent from the last study they conducted. That one used the prices from weddings held in 2014. This survey also revealed that the parents of the couples still go quite a long way in paying for this special event. At that time, 48 percent of the couples received financial help from their parents while 6 percent of the parents still followed the time-honored tradition of the bride’s parents paying for everything.


Other information revealed from these surveys included the increase in “mini-moons,” which are where newly married couples opt to take a short break immediately after their wedding. They schedule a longer honeymoon for a later time. In fact, 82 percent of newly married couples ask for honeymoon vouchers or cash in place of wedding gifts.


When asked about the results of the survey, editor Caroline Bradley states that it is not surprising that the wedding venue has become so important to the couples. Couples who choose the venue early can plan everything else around it.


In addition, she added that many couples are choosing to ask their guests to assist with honeymoon costs and that this may be contributing to the reason that finances for weddings are currently the highest they have been in seven years. When the guests pay for most of the honeymoon costs, couples can spend the most money in the budget on the wedding itself.

Another rising cost that was uncovered through this survey is the average price of an engagement ring, which is currently £1,742

It was also discovered that the total amount of money spent on wedding clothes is £1,055 for the wedding dress and £293 for the groom’s clothing. The reason for the drastic difference in these prices is that 35 percent of grooms choose to simply rent their attire instead of buying it.

Even though this survey’s findings can be a little off-putting, couples should still go ahead and plan their perfect wedding. This is true for all couples; even those on a tight budget.

Hannah Maundrell who is the editor in chief at, shared how to have a remarkable wedding even on a budget. One of the things she recommends is to send invitations by email rather than sending out fancy invitations through the mail. She also suggests that couples don’t throw a huge meal at their reception. Just use the wedding cake as a dessert and some beverages.

Another suggestion she makes is to swap out the flowers for the bridesmaids with something cheaper. You can also cut costs by shopping eBay for simple table decorations.

At the end of the day, the important thing to remember about your wedding is that you are joining together with the person you love the most in the world. A budget should not take away that feeling. – for singles seeking long-term relationship Easter bank holiday 2017

Online dating safety tips
Online dating safety tips

We know you’re a sensible, worldly, head-screwed-on type, but we wanted to remind you of the golden rules that everyone should live by to make the internet as safe a place as possible. Follow these few simple check-points and you should have nothing to worry about…

Choose a password that you can easily remember but that would be difficult for anyone else to guess. Childrens’ names are easy, but just as easy for someone who knows you to guess!
Personal Information

We have a wonderful messaging system which means you don’t need to give out any contact information at all until you’re happy to, so don’t be afraid to tell someone that you’d rather stick to talking online for a bit longer. If they’re genuine then they won’t have a problem.

If anyone asks to borrow money or asks for any sort of financial details whatsoever, then alarm bells should start to ring. You wouldn’t expect someone you met in the pub last week to ask you for money, and you shouldn’t expect it online either.
Personal Safety

The bottom line is that you should always stay in control. Meet in a public place, tell someone when and where you’re going, and arrange to call them at a given time to confirm all’s going well. If your date is worth their salt, they will completely understand.
Don’t Panic!

The vast majority of people you meet online will be genuine people just like you who are simply looking for a date or friendship. Unfortunately, it’s best to plan for the worst and then allow people to prove themselves otherwise, but don’t let the occasional dodgy character spoil your enjoyment.
