Love and Respect

There are so many mixed emotions swirling around the need for respect and love. People are always looking for both and ending up with one or none. Why is that?

Well, for one thing, love is often given without thought, whereas respect has to be earned. How many times have you heard someone say, “I don’t know why I love so and so because I don’t even like him or her?”

Then there’s the confusion between love and lust. There aren’t a lot of people who can distinguish the difference between the two in the early stages of a relationship. And even after the relationship has had time to mature, it’s still difficult to ascertain the difference between love and sex if you are still having sex with your partner.

But, respect is different. If nothing else, you can feel when someone respects you. You can feel validated by that person. It’s not just hearing pretty words because those pretty words have to be backed up by actions. It’s the actions that tell you whether you’re being respected and you can’t keep telling someone you want their respect; you have to earn it.

If your boundaries are consistently being crossed, you don’t have the respect you’re looking for. All the “I love you’s” in the world won’t diminish the lack of respect you feel when you know that someone keeps taking advantage of you.

When someone keeps undermining you or criticizing you without offering a way to fix the problem, you know that this

3 Creative Ways To Have A Unique Wedding

If you want your wedding to be memorable then it must be unique.

There are several ways to make your wedding unique and in this article we will share a few ways to do that.

Wedding Venue

The most common way for a wedding to be memorable is the venue.

This doesn’t have to be wacky. For example sitcoms are always getting married in some type of warehouse or abandoned place.

You could choose to get married at a nice home, a local garden or if you are school sweethearts maybe in the school cafeteria.

Or you could choose to get married in a destination wedding.

Such as Las Vegas, A Disney theme park or in a foreign country.

As an example you could get married on the beach in the Caribbean. Such as Jamaica, Cayman Islands or Bermuda.

These are wonderful paradises and many have wedding packages you can purchase.

You can also get married at sea. Pretty much every cruise ship will have a wedding chapel. And another benefit of getting married at sea is that you have your honeymoon built into the package too.

However, if you are going to get married in a destination wedding make sure you have all of the paperwork squared away.

Wedding Outfit

Another way to be unique is to be creative with your outfit.

I am saying outfit and now the dress because there is a lot of options here.

For example you could have a traditional dress but wear tennis shoes for your shoes.

I had a friend who wore brand new white Nike high-tops

Difference in Our Times

Today I saw a girl and a boy in front of Garuda mall, Bangalore, which is one of the popular places to hang-out in the city. The girl was busy posing for photographs. The poor fellow supposed to be the boyfriend didn’t know what else to do to keep his pretty girlfriend happy, clicked on. The girl with the sweetest smile which was not present a second before when she first reached to see her boyfriend was standing as gracefully possible for the clicks. After the photography session again the same bored expression clouded her face. Those pictures must have been for her profile in the numerous social networking sites like Facebook. It is quite fascinating to see that people now get more pleasure in social networking than their real life boyfriends.

While observing them my thoughts kept going back to the time when I was in high school. The guy I had a huge crush on sat just two rows ahead of mine. I couldn’t help but staring at him while the teacher kept on giving lectures. Sometimes, I was standing outside the classroom for not paying attention in class. Still I could never give up on the urge to keep watching him. It was not that he was extra-ordinarily handsome, but he had something about him which could attract me. My friends could never understand why I liked him so much. I would dream about him all day long when he was not in class. In my mind

How to Choose a Memorable Wedding Invitation for the Big Day

Everyone knows that the wedding invitation is the first sign that the guests will see of the upcoming wedding, and they’ll likely get a hint of what the theme is and what they can expect from the upcoming nuptials and celebration. They not only relay the place, date and time but other important details. So it’s important that much thought is put into both design and wording.

The bride and groom will be conveying their personalities through the personalised wedding invitations and they’ll set the tone for the event from start to finish. The overall quality of the invitation will show how much thought and care is put into the event itself. While this may be a crazy notion to some, think back to receiving an invite in the past and the reaction that followed.

One example is traditional wording, which can give a stern feeling. That’s why couples should analyze and consider all the different elements that go into their personalised wedding invitations; they should consider:

• Size
• Stock
• Ink color
• Typefaces
• Monograms

RSVP

Most couple offer meal varieties in order to accommodate a wider variety of guests. For this, one will want to include a response card that carries the options. Otherwise a simple and elegant response card that has a saying engraved will do. An example is, “please respond by” and the date. Often times, guests may want space to write a personal message if they cannot attend so it’s nice to leave an area for them.

Top Wedding Day Cultural Changes

Although it might seem as if the conventional white wedding and associated trimmings have been around since the dawn of time, in fact, many of the traditions are a relatively recent invention.

Of course some wedding customs are truly ancient but others are the product of 19th and 20th century commercial endeavour. Several aspects of the traditional wedding are now changing though, ranging from wedding limousine transport to the Best Man’s speech!

Giving away

The tradition of the ‘giving away’ of the bride is now sometimes seen as distinctly unsavoury.

To some, it has connotations of the bride being an object or possession, passed over from her father’s ownership to that of her new husband.

So, many families now have the bride travelling to the service with both parents in the luxury wedding limo. Bridesmaids might also be included in that transport. Once at the venue, some brides now choose to walk down the aisle alone or only with the bridesmaids.

This is part of a general tendency towards moving away from the bride’s traditionally very passive role in wedding day events, towards a much more active and participatory one.

Vehicle selection

At one time an old and typically very stately vehicle, such as a vintage Bentley, would have been de rigour.

Today though brides and couples are increasingly selecting more modern and chic luxury limos rather than the same vehicle types their grandparents would have used.

Speech etiquette

The old rather painful strictures about who made what speech in what sequence and with what content, are also breaking down.

Many couples

Sociopath/Psychopath, What’s the Difference? And Are You Sleeping With One?

At the very mention of the word Psychopath, there’s an immediate reaction of disbelief and raised eyebrows, accompanied by a sly, disbelieving smile, while visions of Hannibal Lector, Dexter and real life serial killers come to mind. However, this is rarely the case and few are full blown Psychopaths to that degree.

So what is the difference between a Psychopath and a Sociopath?

“Nothing”, says world renowned, forensic expert, Dr. Robert Hare. They are the same disorder.

It’s the variations of the disorder where experts often make the distinction known as Sociopathy. For example, Psychopaths are born this way. This disorder can be diagnosed as young as 2 years of age and is treatable when diagnosed early.

Sociopaths, as some choose to distinguish, is a developed behaviour. This manifests during early years of life as a coping or defense mechanism to endure extreme stress, trauma or abuse. This is a learned behaviour of protection against a tormentor.

Irregardless of how the condition is developed, the defining characteristics are identical. Also, this it is not a mental illness but a personality disorder on the spectrum scale. It is classified as one of ten different personality disorders.

In a Psychopath, the part in the brain responsible for pleasure is amped up, making enjoyment many, many times more thrilling. However, for any person to feel this fun or indulgence, if you will, they must have the ability to experience emotion. Herein lies the problem. In a Psychopath, the part of the brain responsible for emotion is essentially switched

Safe Sex Made Sexy: Condom Foreplay

Condoms are an important part of safe sex, but some men have a difficult time staying hard while putting on a rubber. There are a number of reasons why this might occur – one being that the step can be an interruption of the arousing activities that came before. Maintaining arousal while applying a condom is important for men with issues staying erect during this step. Since safe sex is imperative for penis health, men should apprise themselves of different ways to ensure that condoms don’t disrupt the mood.

Visuals

Men are known for being highly visual when it comes to sexual stimulation. Having a partner perform activities that a man enjoys watching can help him maintain an erection while putting on a condom. The partner may masturbate for the man or fondle her breasts as he suits up, for example. If a man has a kink that the partner is into, such as a particular fondness for lingerie, indulging in this for him can also be helpful.

Hand it Over

For some men, having a partner apply the condom is the ticket for maintaining arousal. The partner might want to consider providing some oral stimulation just before applying the condom. He or she can stroke the base of the penis while placing the rubber on his head, then pinch the tip and roll it down. Smoothing out any air bubbles along the shaft can turn into a hand job, making it less a procedural action and more a part of
