What is happiness for you? Perhaps, success, money, fame, or maybe falling in love. There is no one size suits all scenario in here. Especially when talking about happiness in intimate relationships. As our world develops, in science and technology, so do our relationships with other people. So, let’s explore our options in modern relationships. We can be single and willing to stay single...
The year is quickly moving to an end and you are soon to face another Christmas dinner with the family being all curious about your private life. Which… well, doesn’t particularly exist at the moment. Maybe you’d dated someone this year, but it didn’t work out, or you decided to give up on dating all together and wait for something magical to happen. Whatever your situation is, the last thing you want is having to explain yourself to a curious crowd of relatives. Worst case scenario, they might even try to set you up with someone. Although that does sound terrible, it actually turned out quite well for Bridget!
Humanity’s best way to learn has always been through a story. We hear many stories every day, some of them simply go past our ears, but some touch us deeply, make our heart beat quicker and take our breath away. Those are the stories we most resonate with, those that make us realise we’ve been in the same situation, we’ve made the same mistakes, and we’ve learnt the same lessons.
I am being asked way too often about the use of online dating and whether it is possible to find your other half there. My answer is YES! Totally! But… if you know what you are doing. Like in everything in life, online dating requires a little caveat. It does work for those who are not afraid to show their true selves not only on the website profile, but bring their own selves to the first date.
In youth I enjoyed writing letters to my family (while away at university), actually mostly to my grandma, or perhaps no one else wanted to read them. But it was a two way amusement, she used to send me long letters in response. My grandma always taught me the power of written words, the energy and positive feelings that reading brings. I liked her reading loud the letters from my grandpa to her when they were young. I was very pleased with love and tenderness they put in each word. It meant a lot to me and used to touch me to tears even though I knew little about love in that age. I remember dreaming about my future “prince”, and hoping that one day he would write me such letters, filling the words with the beauty of love just the same way as my grandpa did.
