Once you get a girl’s phone number, it is a numbers game of whether she picks up the phone or even calls you back.
A good way to guarantee that she calls you back is to steal her jacket.
That way, when you call her: “Hey, I don’t know how this happened but I have your jacket.”
She will need to talk to you again to get her jacket back.
That’s the key difference between good friends (even best friends) and a soulmate: there’s an unexplainable attraction that exists on a whole different level. It’s like you pull on each other like gravity.
To the boys that have gone out with my current love interest before me,
First of all, thank you. During each of your time spent with her, she has learned a number of life lessons. The one most importantly being, what she doesn’t want in a relationship. Through each and every one of your guys’ actions, she has learned to become a wiser and stronger individual, who’s not afraid to stand up for herself. She has her chin up high, and is truly motivated to become the most successful being there is. And this genuine ambition of hers and determination are two of many reasons why I’ve gained feelings for her. So, with all of that being said and done, there’s one more thing I want to say to you certain individuals. Fuck you.
Fuck you for ruining the concept of care, love, and appreciation for her. Fuck you for instilling in her mind that every guy that will now approach her has the only intention of getting in her pants, and leaving. Along with learning to be wise and strong, she has also become damaged. Untrusting. Insecure. But most importantly, scared. And how can I blame her for being in the state that she is? How can someone learn to appreciate a guy when all she’s known from them are lies, betrayal, and neglect? Who in the right mind would still consider a relationship when all she’s learned are reasons not to be in one?
It’s individuals like you who just love to set quite the situation for the rest of us. The rest of us being, you know, ones that actually care about a girl’s feelings. Ones that are respectful, well-mannered, ambitious, and loving. The type of guys that are more needed in this world. You have given her the impression that all guys are nothing but selfish pigs who are emotionless and oblivious on how to love. Boys such as yourselves have forever tarnished the idea that there are genuinely good guys out there who are perfectly capable of being in healthy relationships. And through your actions, girls like her are unable to notice that behind the walls she has built so high.
The position you have put most guys like us in is completely unfair. Instead of being the special somebody that she can’t wait to see after she gets off work, we have become the janitors, moping up what’s left of her happiness. We’re the clean up crew of your irresponsibility, and we never got a taste of that genuine happiness of hers that is now buried beneath an abyss of negative emotions. All thanks your inability to care for another being.
Sometimes I wish people like you never existed, but at the same time, I’m kind of glad you guys do. Because it makes women appreciate us all the more when she finally realizes that there’s more to relationships than what she has experienced through her time with all of you. So for that, I say thank you. Again. Thank you for showing her how cruel people can be sometimes. Thank you for inadvertently teaching her how to appreciate something good when it finally arrives.
Researchers from the Kinsey Institute in Bloomington, Ind. surveyed 1,009 heterosexual middle-aged and older couples in long-term relationships from five different countries, and found some surprising results, reports TIME.
Men who reported frequently kissing or cuddling with their partners were on average three times as happy with their relationships as men who reported limited interaction. Perhaps more surprising, the study found it was sexual satisfaction that was more important to women in long-term relationships. And it also found that for women, sex got better over time — they reported significantly more sexual satisfaction after being with their partner for 15 years.

It’s not that you shouldn’t get married; just understand the above before you say ‘I do’
our culture propagates a billion lies about love, but there is a better way. love is work; it doesn’t just happen. it’s also very different than we expect it to be: both far better and more difficult.
I believe love is easy if one is ready for it. The mature type of love is the hardest to find because the formula involves both parties. Most of the time it’s only one or the other who is ready. And by ready I mean the right amount of maturity, wisdom, experience, and most importantly, understanding of what love is. It is a rare thing to find this counterpart in another, and even rarer to have have the chemistry that will take you past the “honeymoon” stage.
