Unexpected Signs That Let You Know She’s A Keeper

There are certain qualities that men need to look for in a wife or girlfriend. Usually, most dating blogs would say that you have to look for someone who is kind, generous, is respectable and loves you for who you are. Everyone already knows those, though, and the qualities mentioned are pretty basic. But, that’s not what we’re going to focus on today. Did you know you can tell if she’s a keeper if you spot any of the unexpected signs on this list?

You Never Knew That These Signs Can Tell You She’s A Keeper

In addition to the basic signs, or qualities we need to look for, in a wife or girlfriend, you’ll know that she’s a keeper when:

She Has A Hobby Not Related To Work

What does a hobby have to do with all of these? Well, if your partner has a hobby that she’s truly passionate about, it means that she knows how to have fun. She’s not just thinking about work all the time. If your partner has her own hobby, it’s more likely that she will understand why it’s necessary for you to have your boys night out from time to time.

You Are Not The Center Of Her World

Surprised? You probably thought that she’s a keeper when her entire focus is on you. Nope, that shouldn’t be the case because a relationship is made up of two individuals. The couple’s separate individuality needs to be sustained despite being together. Of course, she needs to turn her focus on you, but the relationship will be healthier if you and your partner spend time individually as well as together.

She Pays For Dates, Sometimes

It is understandable for ladies to assume that the man is going to pay for most dates at the beginning. But, a keeper knows how to hold her own and doesn’t mind if she has to, sometimes, pay for dates. This is significant because, when the time comes, you’ll know that she means it when she says that she’ll accept you for richer or poorer.

She Surprises You

Does she do the cooking and cleaning even without you asking her to do so? Does she buy your favourite kind of snack every time she goes grocery shopping? If she surprises you, it means that she’s invested in making a connection with you. That’s how you know when a woman truly cares for you – when she does all sorts of nice things for you without you asking.

Do you spot any of these signs in your partner now? If your answer is yes, congratulations, she’s a keeper. The next step is up to you. Share this post if it has helped you in any way, and don’t forget to check out the rest of posts on our blog.

What Science Says About Your Dating Preferences Will Surprise You

Each of us has our own dating preferences. Some of our preferences might be similar, but they won’t be exactly the same because who you want to meet may be different from who another person wants to meet. But, a recent research study shows that there’s a common denominator in all of our dating preferences; it changes as we grow older.

Dating Preferences That Changes As We Age

Because of the popularity of online dating, researchers now find it easier to collect data and study different aspects of dating and relationships. That’s exactly what researchers from Queensland University of Technology did.

They analysed thousands of online dating profiles involving about 41,000 people. The participants’ ages ranged from 18 to 80 years old. The study focuses on educational attainment as a significant dating preference that changes with age.

Result Of The Research

People in the online dating hemisphere who have attained higher education tend to reach out to those who have a similar level of education. But, and this is the interesting part, as these highly educated individuals age, they care less about their potential partner’s education.

The phenomenon is opposite with online daters who have a lower level of education. As they grow older, they tend to care more about dating people who have a higher level of education than they have or had.

Researchers have found that the level of education represents economic standing and future provisions. It’s also been observed that older women and younger men tend to contact online daters who have a higher level of education.

The Theory Of Homogamy

Scientists used to believe that people chose partners who are of the same socioeconomic status, ethnicity, religion, or age. They call this the theory of homogamy. Now, because we’ve been presented with so many choices, our dating preferences have changed and, in a way, evolved.

That’s why a lot of researchers say that online dating has opened its doors to a whole new way of meeting people. It has changed the game, and it will continue to do so. Who knows? Another one of our dating preferences might just change five years from now.

What Is Kokuhaku And Should You Accept It From A Japanese Girl?

Most of us are familiar with the dating process in the West because that’s what most countries are used to. It’s as simple as boy-meets-girl, and then they start seeing each other or dating when they feel that their togetherness can blossom into a serious relationship. It’s quite different in Japan because a Japanese girl and guy practice something called a love confession.

Kokuhaku: When Japanese Girl And Guy Confess Love

We’ve already discussed some differences between the East and the West‘s dating cultures, but we haven’t talked about kokuhaku yet. Kokuhaku is a Japanese term which literally means “confession”. It is a term used when describing the act of a Japanese girl or guy confessing his or her love to someone.

Kokuhaku In A Nutshell

In the West, all a guy needs to do to date a woman is to ask her out. In Japan it is different because a male and a female can hang out together or with a group of people, but, technically, they aren’t officially dating or in a relationship yet.

Either the man or the woman confesses their love to the person they are interested in. When the person they admitted it to agrees or accepts their love confession, it is official – they are a couple. A person’s kokuhaku can be refused too. The one making the confession is really putting himself or herself out there, so a good amount of courage is needed.

Is This Practice Too Commitment-Focused?

This is a great question because telling someone “I love you” or “I have feelings for you” might be too commitment-focused. What if the relationship doesn’t work out or you find out after a few months that the relationship is not compatible?

One primary factor that you should be looking at is the word “love” in Japanese. It can be translated to either “like” or “love” which does not have a serious meaning.

The Japanese language does have a more serious translation for love which is aishiteru. This word isn’t used as much because it is reserved for intense and true feelings. So, don’t worry because kokuhaku is not like a marriage proposal.

Kokuhaku For Foreigners

With all this in mind, should foreigners do kokuhaku? Yes and no. Yes, if this particular foreigner is familiar with the practice and has lived in Japan for quite some time. A foreigner shouldn’t do kokuhaku when they do not understand it fully. The same goes for a Japanese girl who is interested in dating foreign men. But, the subject of kokuhaku can be a fabulous ice-breaker when chatting with Japanese ladies online.

This difference in dating culture is interesting. You can know more about it by getting first-hand information from a Japanese girl. You can meet some at AsianDate. If you want more dating advice, don’t forget to check out more posts from our blog.

This Soap Ingredient Might Be Affecting Your Bedroom Performance

Before you buy your soap or body wash, do you ever take a look at the ingredients listed on the back? Most would answer no to this question because we all assume that what we are buying is safe. After all, products made it to the shelves of our local stores which make us think that they’ve already passed regulations laws. We should all think again because recent reports say our bedroom performance may be affected by this chemical ingredient.

Your Bedroom Performance Issue Is Probably Caused By This An Anti-Bacterial Ingredient

Triclosan is a common ingredient found in soaps, body wash and deodorant. It has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties – characteristics that do not sound harmful at all. However, according to a post by CBS News, “studies began to show it could disrupt sex and thyroid hormones and other bodily functions”.

A study by researchers at the University of California also showed that triclosan could sometimes cause muscle weakness as well as impaired muscle activity. Researchers exposed the muscle fibres of fish and mice to the chemical. They found that both skeletal and cardiac muscles they exposed to triclosan did not function optimally.

While most of the studies have been done on animals, most experts say that it can have a similar effect on humans.

It was in September 2016 that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a ruling that 19 active anti-bacterial ingredients, including triclosan, are generally not safe and effective. The FDA continues by saying that companies have one year to reformulate their products, taking out ingredients like triclosan. The ban will be effective in the USA coming September 2017. The state of Minnesota got a head start and banned the chemical ingredient last January 1.

Just so we are all informed, here are the 19 active ingredients that were considered unsafe by the FDA last September:

  1. Cloflucarban
  2. Fluorosalan
  3. Hexachlorophene
  4. Hexylresorcinol
  5. Iodine complex
  6. Iodine complex
  7. Methylbenzethonium chloride
  8. Nonyl phenoxy poly (ethylene oxy) ethanol-iodine
  9. Phenol (greater than 1.5 percent)
  10. Phenol (less than 1.5 percent)
  11. Poloxamer-iodine complex
  12. Povidone-iodine (5 to 10 percent)
  13. Secondary amyl tri cresols
  14. Sodium oxychlordane
  15. Tribromsalan
  16. Triclocarban
  17. Triclosan
  18. Triple dye
  19. Undecoylium chloride iodine complex

Don’t Let Your Bedroom Performance And Health Be Affected

September is still a few months away, but as early as now, we need to be more careful about the products we purchase. We need to look out for the ingredients on the above list. Some may be hiding under different names, so it’s always a plus for us to do some research, or better yet, why not go for more organic products?

Share this on your social media, so your friends and family can also be aware. For more dating updates, make sure you check out more posts on our blog.

Ways To Date Asian Girls With Strict Parents

From the experiences of most foreign men, it’s likely you will have an encounter with strict parents when you’re dating Asian girls. It’s characteristic in the Asian culture for either the mother or both parents to be overly involved in their children’s lives, and that includes being involved in their children’s choice of partner. Could you ever date Asian girls with over-protective parents?

How To Get On The Good Side Of Asian Girls Strict Parents

The answer to the question asked above is YES. Yes, you can date Asian girls with strict parents. You just have to understand that you also have to “date” the parents on top of dating their daughter because you’ll need to get on their good side. Here are ways on how you can do this:

Show Respect At All Times

Most Asian parents are very traditional. Respecting the elders is a must. Respecting the culture of the Asian lady you’re dating is also mandatory. There are so many possible scenarios of how you can show respect to your girl’s parents and family. For you to recognize the specific situations, you have to understand the Asian culture.

For example, as a foreigner, do you know whether you need to bow to greet your girl’s grandparents? Bowing is a sign of respect in the Asian culture, but you’re a foreigner, so do you have to do this? If you don’t know how to behave during this scenario, you’ll likely get on her parent’s bad side.

Show Love For Her Mother’s Cooking/ Asian Food

When you’re invited over for a meal, make sure that you eat a lot. Eating a lot means that the food that has been prepared is delicious. It is considered a compliment to whoever cooked the food. You also have to develop a taste for traditional Asian food because you’ll likely be eating a lot of it when you’re in the presence of your girl’s strict parents.

Don’t Brag But Let Them Know That You Have Potential

Since the ancient times, Asian parents have always been concerned about their daughter’s future. In the past, this meant they would have to find a husband who’s fit to ensure that their daughter lives a comfortable life.

Today, of course, this is not necessary, but the traditional mindset of securing their daughter’s future still has some traces. So, strict Asian parents need to know and see that you are capable of taking care of their daughter.

This won’t be a problem if you are a doctor, business owner, or you may have an inheritance from your parents. If you’re none of the above, don’t worry because you can always talk to your Asian girl’s parents about your future plans to show them that you have potential.

If you keep doing all things mentioned, you’ll warm up to any Asian parents in no time. Remember that Asian parents also have good instincts, so if you’re not sincere about their daughter, they will see right through you. Do you need more tips like this? Make sure you check out more posts from our blog. If you want to meet lovely Asian girls, you can visit AsianDate.

Answering These Questions Will Help You Start 2017 Right

We should treat the beginning of the year as a chance to start fresh. That’s why most of us practice the tradition of writing New Year’s resolutions every year. This year shouldn’t be an exception. We need a guide to help us start 2017 the right way and then spend the rest of it with the right goals in mind.

5 Questions on Self-Reflection To Help Start 2017 The Right Way

If you haven’t started with your New Year’s resolutions yet, it may just be because you don’t know where to start. Answering these questions will help:

1. What was the best part of your life last year?

What were the best moments in your life last year? You can list down your promotion, meeting a special someone through online dating, losing weight, making up with a family member or finally saving up enough money for a downpayment on a new car. Whatever they are, ensure that they were times when you were euphoric. They could be worth repeating this year.

2. What was the worst part of your life last year?

This may not be a positive road to travel on again, but you have to remember what it was that brought you sadness and difficulty last year. It’s highly likely that you may not have done anything to remove some of the things in your life that are causing you to feel sad and burdened. This year could be the year to cut off whatever it is that’s bringing you down. It could be your job, it could be your debt, it could be a toxic friendship.

3. What can you improve in your life now?

Because you know the good and the bad from last year, you’ll likely have a clearer picture of what needs to be improved this year. It could be your health; it could be your relationships with friends and family, and so on. Remember that you have to be objective and honest with yourself when you’re answering this question.

4. What do you need to stop?

Truthfully, most of us know what we need to stop to make our lives better. We just won’t admit it to ourselves. We have plenty of bad habits we need to get rid of. We should start doing that with them, one by one, this year. One example is smoking. Another would be, for instance, always being late to appointments.

5. What do you need to start?

This year, we should promise ourselves that we will do more of the things that make us happy. It could be spending time with the family, it could be traveling, or it could be something as simple as going on a movie marathon every weekend.

Answering these five questions will really help put things into perspective and help you start 2017 the right way. It’ll also be easier to write down your New Year’s resolutions when you’ve finally thought of the answers to the questions above.

Don’t forget to try something new this year, like online dating. Check out if you want to meet lovely Asian ladies. We also have relationship and dating posts on our blog so make sure to check those out too.
