3 Mindset Shifts : When “He’s Too Hot for Me
Ever notice how you completely fall apart when you try to speak to that guy you’re really attracted to? It’s like with your best friends you can be effortlessly funny, talkative, and smart, then suddenly you’re talking to this guy and your brain turns to mush. Then begins the negative self-talk: “I’m not pretty enough,” “I have nothing interesting to say,” “He’s not going to like me.” It’s like you instantly lose all of your game.https://goodmenproject.com/featured-content/3-mindset-shifts-for-when-you-think-hes-too-hot-for-me-wcz/

The Price of Being Single
Bella DePaulo, now in her sixties, has always been single. For some time, she thought the marriage bug would bite her, until she realized it wouldn’t—and she didn’t want it to. DePaulo, who describes herself as “single at heart,” relishes the lifestyle. What she doesn’t love is the prejudice that single people face, from cultural stigma to discrimination at work, in the media and elsewhere. That’s why the Harvard-trained social scientist (now a project scientist at UCSB) has spent nearly two decades researching single life in America, publishing her findings in scholarly journals, in books including Singled Out, and on blogs. She explains why the pervasive negative stereotypes about single people are largely unsubstantiated, while the anecdotal prejudice is real — and so ingrained we often hardly see it.https://ideas.ted.com/the-price-of-being-single/?utm_campaign=social&utm_medium=referral&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_content=ideas-blog&utm_term=humanities&fbclid=IwAR1wGrbz2pcV6T7pRoNTzzGNvSgr-tXU9xmouwRepU8VqaMP7pXlMsgHILU

Bill and Melinda Gates Wash Dishes Together
It's no secret that marriage takes a lot of work. A marriage is a partnership - it's two people coming together and choosing each other every single day. That sounds hard and daunting - but also rewarding. There are a ton of books, blogs, and websites about sustaining a healthy marriage. There are therapy sessions and communication tools and, and, and. It can feel overwhelming. How does anybody have a long-lasting, healthy, love-filled marriage? Especially in 2019, when distraction is perhaps at its peak. It was probably easier to give your spouse attention when you both didn't have smartphones and social media.https://twentytwowords.com/billionaires-bill-and-melinda-gates-wash-dishes-together-every-night-to-help-their-marriage/?utm_content=buffer24c50&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook&utm_campaign=hh&fbclid=IwAR1qGznL0G4uSYP41YVuPg3o_ui2wRNuKb66LB3Xbs3BPllIgTIfbR4_5h0

What is your love language? And your partner's?
I first discovered love languages a couple years ago and since then, my perspective on family, friendships, and relationships has drastically changed. For the better, too. I took the quiz and received my results. It took less than five minutes. My top five, in order, were: Quality Time Acts of Service Words of Affirmation Physical Touch Receiving Gifts These results did not surprise me, but they did help me realize something. It is just as important to understand your partner's love languages as it is to understand your own, especially if your love languages are different from each other's. These love languages give you insight into what means the most to you and your partner, and also what can hurt you the most. https://humans.media/love-languages-and-why-they-are-important

How long before “defining the relationship?"
Of course, every relationship is different, and there's no way to know whether your relationship was meant to last or not. But, according to experts, there are some fairly basic rules to follow when it comes to defining the relationship. For instance, just because you define the relationship, that doesn't mean you'll make it last forever and ever. Benjamin Ritter, MBA, MPH, and founder of The Breakup Supplement, tells Elite Daily that "Nothing ever ensures you’ll stay together in a relationship. Anyone can lie, but bringing up the conversation makes sure that a person cannot just avoid the topic." https://www.elitedaily.com/p/how-long-should-you-wait-before-defining-the-relationship-heres-what-experts-say-9930026

How do you improve communication with your partner
Are you having trouble talking about your feelings with someone you love? Does your partner run the other way any time you bring up your feelings? If so, this may be good news for you: According to recent research, talking about your feelings is not the only—or even necessarily the best—way for couples to maintain healthy, happy and successful relationships. Even if you are great at it, you may still feel like you’re not getting them across to the people who matter to you. Or you may be with someone who simply doesn’t like “touchy feely” conversations. But a number of studies have concluded that words aren’t actually necessary for meaningful and intimate interactions. Here are a couple of ways to improve emotional communication and deepen your relationship: 1. Make small talk. You may think talking about a TV show or even the weather is far from connecting emotionally, but these supposedly insignificant details are actually more likely to improve your close emotional ties to your partner than a so-called "deep" discussion of your feelings 2. Don’t just ask about small insignificant experiences. Share them 3. Listen carefully. Knowing that you are being heard is one of the experiences most likely to cement a feeling of connection to another. One way to improve your listening skills is to use a technique called “active listening.” https://www.psychologytoday.com/intl/blog/the-couch/201501/6-surprising-ways-communicate-better-your-partner

Denmark: A best place to work in the world
Denmark may be the birthplace of the Lego tower, but its workplace hierarchy is the flattest in the world. According to the World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Report 2018, the nation tops an index measuring “willingness to delegate authority” at work, beating 139 other countries. This will come as no surprise to foreign workers who can find the country's egalitarian approach a culture shock. "People relate to one another as equals regardless of job titles and formal positions," notes the University of Southern Denmark in an article explaining the country's working culture. "Many workplaces have what resembles a flat management hierarchy, which means it is more than normal to take up issues directly with the CEO. It is allowed to contradict or criticize managers."https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2018/10/denmark-has-the-flattest-work-hierarchy-in-the-world?utm_source=Facebook%20Videos&utm_medium=Facebook%20Videos&utm_campaign=Facebook%20Video%20Blogs

Interracial couples are more likely to fail
There are a number of reasons why people may enter into interracial relationships. First, some people may want increased status be it real or imaged. Second, some people might have failed to find a satisfying relationship within their own groupings. In addition, some are forced into mixed relationships by pregnancy. Dating or marrying someone from a different background requires effort and understanding and it solely depends on the individuals concerned and their families. All couples experience all kinds of problems but this intensifies if couples are of a different background. https://www.chronicle.co.zw/problems-of-mixed-marriages/
