Discreet London Dating Relationship Advice by Francis K. Githinji



Discreet London Dating Relationship Advice

 by: Francis K. Githinji

With vast intimacy and love coupled by discreet relationship advice in the world today, many London dating couples have become confused about what to do and what not to for their unions to work. Each and every romantic relationship is wholesome and pleasantly unique, and there are some dating relationships discreet tips and advice which applies to all the singles and individuals of all ages after success in their relationships.

For many singles, the most important of love relationship run back to their childhood days, where the advice was that you treat others as you would like to be treated. It might be one of the simplest golden rules but holds the spirit of success in a relationship. Many London dating individuals find a lot of relationship advice and discreet tips in magazines, books and television, while the bottom line is that all we look forward to is to be looked after nicely and equally.



Honesty is a part of any amicable relationship. Lying has never held a sure base for any relationship to blossom, and honestly has always been one of the most important of relationship advice. Lies begin from small stories to vast ones as they continue to get into the way of positive unions. Try to be truthful for once, as you tell the truth about your dislikes, likes, desires and opinions from the onset. You cannot by any chance meet the kind of person you are looking in London if you are misrepresenting your real self. London dating will be elusive in your life.

For instance, if you loath dancing and partying, make it clear to all your romantic interests, as you forge on with a dose of honesty. It is the basis upon which you will be able to find a better thing to do with your dating partner, which you are all sure and free to carryout.

Respect for one another is a virtue that has lacked in many London dating instances throwing them in the hands of ruin. It is arguably one of the most discreet of all advice. Lack of respect for each other is something that has led to the break up of many relationships. For example, a public disapproval of your dating partner, or just a private picking of the small things he or she has done might put you in a very precarious relationship position with your significant other.

For any relationship to blossom and go places there has to be some form of openness and trust prevailing. It is one of the most perfect ways of ascertaining the needs of your partner, through talking more openly to each other. You are thus able to handle your needs and theirs impeccably. It is also all about understanding your partner, where you determine what time she or he sleeps, and being able to plan a London dating outing or dinner before their bed time. Rather than arguments, one after the other, try to find a better way of handling your issues, like communicating often and sharing the best of dating and relationships.

Caroline Flack hit with Twitter death threats over relationship with One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles





TV star Caroline Flack has been bombarded with vile death threats from One Direction fans over her alleged relationship with Harry Styles.

The Xtra Factor presenter was spotted enjoying a cosy meal with the 17-year-old singer earlier this week, sparking rumours they are a couple.

The pair first set tongues wagging last month when it emerged they had kissed on a night out.

Now the 31-year-old has been subjected to an online hate campaign by furious 1D fans for dating the heartthrob, who is 15 years her junior.

One angry fan wrote: "If Caroline Flack flirts with my boyfriend I will personally hunt her down and shoot her."

Another posted: "I want to kill you Caroline Flack, Harry is mine B***h."

One livid tweeter branded the leggy presenter a "saggy old woman" while another said that she "should be having kids, not dating them".

Caroline, who hosts the ITV2 spin off with Olly Murs, took to her own page on the social networking site to defend herself.



She wrote: "Hi one direction fans! To clarify. I'm close friends with harry. He's one of the nicest people I know... I don't deserve death threats. :) x."

Other fans have tweeted their support for pretty Caroline

One wrote: "Can't believe that @carolineflack1 is getting death threats :o as much as I love @OneDirection I wouldn't threaten to kill someone".

Another told certain One Direction fans to "grow up" while some twitter 'cougars' used the internet storm to admit they were "jealous" of Caroline.

Rumours of a romance surfaced earlier this week after the couple were reportedly spotted sharing desserts at a restaurant in St Martin's Lane Hotel in London.

Reports claimed the pair "only had eyes for each other" and seemed unconcerned about being seen in public together, later leaving together in the same cab.

Curly-haired Harry fanned the flames further during the band's Xtra Factor interview following their performance on Saturday night's show.

When asked which of this year's girls he fancied, Harry admitted: "They're all a bit young for me."

47 Relationship-building Activities

The list below is intended to stimulate your own thinking about relationship building. Some of these ideas will work for you while others will not seem appropriate. Stick with what feels right.

You will also note that many of the items on the list below have nothing to do with business. While business relationships can be built on purely business interests, personal connections are likely to build stronger bonds.

1. Send notes of congratulations. If you get in the habit of reading industry publications, you will become more aware of what your clients are doing.

2. Help someone's family member with a job search. If job notices come across your desk, forward them to people who might be interested. Introduce the family member to a client of yours. Even if the client does not have a job for the individual, they can help the individual by providing contacts and other useful information about their industry.

3. Refer business to them. One of the best ways to generate business referrals is to make referrals yourself. Be sure that the referrals you make are "quality" referrals (quality as defined by the person who is getting the referral).

4. Introduce them to someone who can solve a problem they have. Perhaps they need a good computer consultant to help set up an office network or a good plumber to unclog their sewage line at home. Either way, referring good vendors to your contacts shows that you are resourceful.

5. Introduce them to someone who you think they should meet. Perhaps you know an accountant who does work for a company they are courting. The accountant can give them useful background information about the company. Maybe you know someone who has dealt with a similar business issue and might be willing to share his or her experience.

6. Participate in a charitable cause.

7. E-mail an article to them. Keep track of people's interests in an electronic contact manager so you can match articles with people's interests. Many online publications make it very easy for you to forward articles by e-mail. If you take the time to track people's interests in your contact manager, you are more likely to remember that person when something of interest does come across your desk or your computer desktop.

8. Invite their comments on an article you are writing. If it makes sense, ask several people for feedback. You will end up with a better article and by asking, you will be communicating that you value their opinion.

9. Invite them to a sporting event. Make sure it is a sport that you like and a sport that the prospect likes.

10. Do great work for clients and celebrate any victories.

11. Send holiday gifts. When possible, try to make the gift personal or at least choose something you think the individual would like.

12. Invite them to a reception at your firm or ask them if they want to join you at someone else's reception.

13. Ask about their spouse and children. A wedding ring is a good clue that they are married. If it feels appropriate, ask them what their spouse does. If you happen to be in their office, ask if the pictures on the walls are their kids.

14. Go on a dog walk together.

15. Lend them a book you enjoyed.

16. Co-author an article with them.

17. Invite them to participate on a panel with you.

18. Establish a common connection. Same school, town, common professional or personal contacts

19. Teach them something about a non-legal subject that you know something about (e.g., how to use a piece of office technology; good places to vacation in Ireland; how to find a reputable dog breeder).

20. Write a personal note on any form letters you send out.

21. Plan an activity with your children (if they have children the same age).

22. Send acknowledgments if you see that they are mentioned in the press.

23. Send congratulations on significant life events (e.g., births, weddings).

24. Send condolence cards when you learn about a death in their family. Most people will really appreciate this. It is unlikely that you would offend someone.

25. Recommend a good movie, book, play or other cultural activity.

26. Introduce them to a hobby or activity that you are passionate about.

27. Recruit them to participate in a nonprofit cause that interests you (make sure they seem genuinely interested).

28. Go out and celebrate with the client after settling a big case or closing a big deal.



29. Take the time to learn about their interests.

30. Mention their name as a source to a reporter.

31. Send them a brochure for a seminar that might interest them.

32. Tell them about a website that might be helpful or interesting to them.

33. Respond to business announcements they send out. People generally appreciate feedback after they send out a mailing, particularly if it is marketing literature. If you liked something about the mailing, let them know.

34. Send back comments about an article they have sent to you.

35. Follow up on a referral you made and ask how it turned out. If you think the person you referred actually followed up

36. Let them know about your significant life events.

37. Call the person you gave a referral to and ask them if the individual or company was able to help them.

38. Thank them for referrals and thank them again if the referral hires or does business with you (or keep them posted).

39. Invite them to your dance, piano or choral recital or the opening of your photography exhibit.

40. If a family member of theirs is sick, call to ask how the family member is doing.

41. Pay a condolence call if a parent dies and/or attend the funeral.

42. Come to their functions when they invite you.

43. Put all of your time on your bills and show a discount (or indicate "no charge" for certain activities).

44. Call or write to send compliments about something good you've seen or read about the company/client.

45. Start a discussion by e-mail about a common interest (e.g., politics, sports).

46. Attend a presentation that the contact makes and send a note or a comment about the presentation.

47. Find out what organizations they are involved in and join one that interests you.

If you make a point of trying to be helpful to the professionals in your network, your relationships will grow. Whether you use any of the suggestions above or find other ways to connect, relationship building will lead to business if you stick with it over a long period of time.

Former BBC Star Hailed as 'Goddess' in Nepal



Nepal's prime minister on Monday thanked "Absolutely Fabulous" actress Joanna Lumley for her campaign to grant thousands of Gurkha war veterans and their families the right to settle in Britain.

The actress visited the tiny Himalayan state for a victory tour, attracting hundreds of former Nepalese troops who fought for the British, many of whom say they now regard the 63-year-old as a goddess, the Times of London reported.

Harka Bahadur Pua, an 84-yeard-old Gurkha veteran who fought for Britain during the Second World War, walked six hours from his tiny village to the town of Parbat, where he began a 12-hour bus ride to Kathmandu to meet Lumley, according to the Times.

Gurkhas have been serving as soldiers for the British since 1815, but Britain had limited their right to settle there, saying allowing in tens of thousands of veterans and their families would cost taxpayers billions, the Times eported.

Lumley -- who in the British TV comedy series played Patsy, a chain-smoking magazine editor who slept her way to the top -- became the face of their campaign.

In May, the British government agreed to allow thousands of Gurkhas the automatic right to settle there. Nepalese Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal and President Ram Baran Yadav thanked Lumley on Monday.

"You have championed the cause of Gurkhas. For this social justice, I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to you and to all of your team members," Yadav said.

Earlier in the day, Gurkha veterans honored Lumley at city hall in the capital, Katmandu.

"I am very happy that I am at my home in Nepal," Lumley told the cheering crowd. "For my first visit to Nepal but not the last, it makes me so proud to know that I have been here accepted as the daughter of Nepal. Thank you for that."

Lumley was mobbed by hundreds of Gurkha war veterans and their families as she arrived at the airport on Sunday. She greeted them with thanks and the Gurkha battle-cry "Ayo Gurkhali."

How to Approach Women Without Fear by Dan Tolumbro



Indisputably, the biggest problem that faces the new pick-up artist is anxiety that comes from approaching a woman he desires. There have been quite a few explanations for this, ranging from tribal history that has been implanted in our genes, to societal programming on what is right and wrong for us to do.

Put simply, we just happen to desire social acceptance more than anything else that does not physically keep us alive. We want our family to be proud of us, our friends and acquaintances to respect and include us, and the rest of the world to desire us.

What?s the opposite of acceptance? Rejection. And that?s what we?re afraid of.

I?m going to give you some powerful techniques to eradicate this fear?s hold on your life, but before that, I want to discuss the root of this in depth for you.



We?re going to call a girl or group not being interested as something other than ?rejection? or ?getting rejected.? After all, you didn?t get rejected. Your approach did. If you went in differently, the reaction would have been different. We?re going to call it ?getting blown out? or a ?blow-out.? This is because while the set didn?t know enough about you to reject you personally, they did express that they wanted to end the interaction.

Your use of words is very important. A good friend of mine is fond of saying, ?The first set of the night is always murder.? Now if you?re equating talking to a girl with someone ending your life, of course you will be more than a little hesitant to make that first approach! Anthony Robbins has set up a whole system on how to use your word choice to better your life. I won?t get into it here, but in short, minimize your negative word usage, especially if you?re describing something that?s necessary for you. If you say ?Going to the gym is a royal pain in the ass,? you probably won?t make it there very often. However, if you say ?Getting to the gym consistently is a challenge,? it?s a lot more likely you?ll rise to the occasion. So to sum up, I NEVER want to hear you say ?I got rejected.?

While word choice is important, a bigger issue that holds the outcome of the set. In other words, you are giving two girls thirty seconds to give a full evaluation of your value as a person and judge you accordingly. That?s a lot of power to give someone you?ve never met before.

There?s only three reasons an approach might not go well for me:

1) My game wasn?t good enough at this point to handle this particular situation

2) My game was good enough, but I made a mistake in this particular situation

3) There were extenuating circumstances that prevented success, despite that I ran a good set.

That?s it. There are no possibilities for why it can go wrong.

In my years in the game, I?ve met plenty of people that make their living teaching men how to pick-up women. These men pick-up beautiful women right in front of their students, sometimes on video-tape. Some of these guys, if you saw them, would blow your mind because they are not attractive by any standards. They have huge guts, often are balding, sometimes pasty white, and sometimes pretty short and frail. This is a hard thing to accept until you?re actually seen this, but you definitely do not need to be good looking to attract women. The point I?m trying to make is:

YOUR LOOKS ARE NOT WHAT GETS YOU BLOWN OUT.

Your game is the problem; not your looks, not your value. It?s completely dependent on your social skill-set.

When Tyler Durden makes an approach that doesn?t go well (which does happen even for the masters), he says it affects him as emotionally as if he was shooting hoops and had his hand crooked on the basketball and missed.

So you have basically three options to consider. You may have been socially miscalibrated and messed up a set you could have done well. So you learn from your mistake. It also might have been a too difficult set for you to win at this point in your learning curve. You still get mad props for going for it and you are no doubt better because you did go for it. The people that get great at pick-up constantly approach sets out of their comfort zones, where instant success is unlikely. It might be a go-go dancer swinging around a pole. It may be a beautiful girl surrounded by 7 guys. It may be a celebrity. When you?re higher in your learning curve, you?ll be able to own that set.

Until then, it?s only practice.

A great PUA named Hoobie once said that ?Every failure is a brick in my palace.? I would change that to ?Every approach is a brick in my palace.? The latter is more accurate, because every attempt you make at a pickup, it adds to your cumulative experience.

And of course there are situations where the set-up is precarious at best and it is near impossible to actually win the set. If a group of girls are having a girl?s night out for a friend who?s husband just cheated on her, they?re going to be giving her 100% of their attention and putting guys to the side for the night. There?s no way you would ever know that, so just be open to the possibility. This is not to say you should excuse yourself every time a set doesn?t go well. You can?t always say ?She must have been married.? You still have personal accountability. Just let the possibility that it was an impossible set be open in the back of your mind.

Now here are some specific techniques for consistently getting approaches done each night:

? Make it a MUST that you approach a minimum of 6 sets for the night. That you literally can't leave til you do it. Make it your goal to get blown out 6 times. Yes, no numbers, no lays, just get blown out. That way when you get blown out you're closer to your goal.

? If you have a wing, give him 100 dollars. Have him give you 10 dollars back for each approach you do. At the end of the night, he keeps the leftover cash.

? Make it a point to say some outrageous stuff in approaches, stuff you KNOW won't work. Every third approach or so, I will sometimes use a ?fun? approach that I don't? expect to work like going up to a group of girls and saying ?Are you ready for the big time??



? A good exercise from Ross Jeffries is to go to a place like a shopping mall or busy street downtown and stop a girl and say "Excuse me, forgive the interruption. I'm Manny Martian. What is your favorite flavored bowling ball?" Now that's not a pickup attempt, because you were not trying to seduce her. Go do that about 20 times and it should be easier. It may be better to do that one in a major city an hour or so away from where you live for that one.

You have to go BEYOND what a typical approach is before you feel comfortable with a normal approach. Once you say something ridiculous and realize you're still alive and breathing afterwards, you can laugh it off and it?s a heck of a lot easier to ask a couple women what their opinion is on something.

? FOR NEWBIES ONLY: When you approach, touch the girls before you start talking. Like tap a shoulder. That instigates the "point of no return" signal that let?s you know you're already in the interaction. When you see a set, go 3-2-1, TAP, and then they're looking at you and you have to speak. After doing this for a few weeks though, quickly phase it out since it is NOT solid game for a proper pickup.

? Practice seeing women for as they are and not as the demi-gods we make them out to be in the field. If you see a woman in sexy bitch boots, sparkling eye shadow, and shimmering lipstick, of course all you can think of how absolutely wonderful it would be to kiss her. Now look at her and in your head take the lipstick off, as well as the rest of the make-up, and think of how she looks on laundry day. You don?t have to imagine her ugly, but just a bit plainer. That should take it down a notch.

? Lastly, be social in general with women of all shapes and sizes. The more often you talk to women outside of a pick-up session, the more natural it will be to start a conversation with any girl at a bar. Talk to fat, older and unattractive women as well.

You may always feel some jitters your first set of the night, and I know pros who feel that way after 10 years of picking up the most beautiful women. They just plow through despite the initial unpleasant feeling. And thats what a real man does: act in spite of fear, and act in spite of discomfort.

Breakup violence: Resources for teens and parents



Breakup violence among teens is a crime that has no zip code. It's urban, suburban, and rural. A relationship ends and what happens is an emotional surge of uncontrollable anger. It can be verbal or physical and sometimes, as in the case of Wayland, Mass., teen Lauren Astley, it can end in death.

The statistics are startling. Researchers estimate that one in three young adults between the ages of 14 and 20 has experienced some form of dating violence. "Of teenagers who are in abusive relationships, 3 percent will tell an authority figure, 6 percent will tell a family member, but 75 percent will tell a friend - that's why we focus on kids," former Middlesex County, Mass., District Attorney Gerry Leone tells "48 Hours".

National Teen Dating Abuse Helpline: 1-866-331-9474

National Domestic Violence Hotline: 1-800-799-SAFE (7233) | 1-800-787-3224 [TTY]

National Sexual Assault Hotline: 1-800-656-HOPE (4673)

Teen advocates and awareness

All through Massachusetts, teenagers are working to bringing awareness to the growing problem of dating and breakup violence. Students participating in Lincoln Sudbury High School's Mentors in Violence Prevention program give a dramatic presentation to fellow students about the warning signs of dating abuse and breakup violence. Students with Boston's Start Strong program aim to promote healthy relationships and prevent teen dating violence and Shawsheen Regional Technical High School's dating awareness club meets weekly to discuss how to educate classmates about the dangers of dating abuse. Watch the video above and below to hear from the students.

Social media has "added a level of stress that, we, as adults, haven't had to deal with and we really need to make sure that young people understand that and set boundaries around their digital lives," said Ferrer.

The warning signs

According to Love is Respect.org, dating abuse is a pattern of destructive behaviors used to exert power and control over a dating partner. It can be hard to tell when a behavior crosses the line from healthy to unhealthy or even abusive. Here are some things to be aware of:



Teens and technology:

Social media adds enormous pressure -- the digital footprint that every young person lives with makes breaking up harder, sometimes humiliating. It's a recipe for disaster. "... the loss, the breakup, it's tweeted ... it's texted about. It's Facebook-ed," Leone said. "Everybody's electronically communicating about it. And what it tends to do is exacerbate the entirety of the situation.



Teen survivor helping others

Brittny Henderson of Burlington Wis., came face-to face with dating abuse her freshmen year in high school. "It all happened so slowly," Brittny explained of the increasingly aggressive and controlling behavior her once goofy, fun boyfriend started exhibiting. Brittny's father stepped in and ended the relationship for her. She now volunteers at the National Teen Dating Abuse Helpline. "Once you're involved in it, it sucks you in. Anyone can fall victim to abuse."

Krauthammer: Administration has 'manipulative relationship with the truth'



Charles Krauthammer told viewers Monday on "Special Report with Bret Baier" that a moment recounted in former Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner's new memoir shows that the Obama administration has a "less than arm's length relationship with the truth."

"It's less than arm's length - it is actually a clearly manipulative relationship with the truth," Krauthammer said. "That it is to be used, or abused, or inverted, in order to, quote, 'send a message,' to send a dog signal."



Geithner wrote in his memoir, "Stress Test," that he was pressured by White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer before an appearance on Sunday talk shows to downplay the extent to which Social Security spending drives the deficit. 

While Geithner believes Social Security is not the main driver of the deficit, he wrote that Pfeiffer told him to say it "didn't contribute" - at all - in order to mollify the Democrat base and send what Pfeiffer called a "dog whistle" to the left.

"Everybody knows that Social Security is in deficit - the Treasury makes it up, and therefore it contributes to the deficit," Krauthammer said. "Geithner knows that, and therefore he wasn't prepared to say an outright lie, and an obvious arithmetic lie."



"You want to send a message to the base, that you're not going to touch Social Security? You simply say, we're not going to touch Social Security, come hell or high water," he added. "You don't have to attach a lie to it in order to send a dog signal."

Communication in a Relationship by Michael Brady



Communication is a vital part of our lives: a typical day involves many interactions between ourselves, our work colleagues and clients, our children, our friends, our ex's, future relationships, etc. This interaction takes place where we live, work, relax, socialize and wherever we perform routine tasks.

Communication skills are critical for building healthy relationships, especially when one realizes that one of the most common causes of relational breakdown is a lack of communication. Just as communication can be the most important part of a relationship; arguments can be the most destructive aspect - the closer we are to someone, the more easily we can bruise or be bruised. There is very little truth in the saying: "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never harm me." It's not what we say, but rather how we say it, that most often hurts another person.

Do you identify with any of these statements?

"He never listens to me when I talk!"

"She talks and talks, but never actually says anything!"

"It's like talking to a brick wall"

"I can't get through to you"

"We can't talk about anything important without getting into a fight"

"She's too emotional - she's either crying or shouting or complaining. It's easier to avoid her"

"He always gets defensive when I try to talk about issues"

Communication is a complex process; of which speaking only makes up for 10-20%. The other 80-90% is made up by facial expressions, body language, tone of voice, etc.

Communication is the art/ science of transferring a thought/ idea/ information from the mind of one complex human being to the mind of one or more complex human being(s). For communication to be effective, it must be a two-way process.

Dynamics of Interpersonal Communication

1. Facts: are both people communicating about the same set of facts? Try to separate the facts from thoughts or feelings.

2. Interpretations, Thoughts or Perceptions: Each person interprets a fact differently based on their belief system, personality, values and experience.

3. Feelings: how we are feeling, our current mood and frame of mind, etc can sub-consciously affect decisions and thoughts.

4. Intentions, Needs or Wants: hidden agendas; are we looking for comfort, clarification, information or simply a chance to interact? We judge ourselves on our intentions.

5. Actions: choice of words (is the intent to create harm?) + tone of voice + non-verbal speech = body language, posture, eye contact, facial expressions, etc.

"The medium is the message" => the way the message is delivered is the message itself.

6. Self: The communication centre, which includes the issue, topic or conflict at hand, has been "filtered" by the facts, interpretations, thoughts, feelings, intentions, and choices of behaviour / actions.

Listening and Feedback

Did I say what I meant to say? - Invite feedback to clarify communication.

Someone who's not listening lets their mind drift and is already preparing the next argument or opposing thought; inaccurate feedback or limited eye contact.

Listening is an active, not a passive process. When two people argue, they only hear "what they want to hear", not what's actually said. This equates to the accusation of "not listening". Most couples start arguing and within 5 minutes are arguing about the way they are arguing.

Don't argue when you're angry - you will not be able to listen objectively. Give yourself time to cool down and then broach the subject when you are in a more reasonable frame of mind.

It's important to give feedback - checking and confirming. Did I understand you correctly? Is this what you mean? I heard you say this: am I right? Feedback can be verbal / non-verbal e.g. a nod, smile, silence or a cold shoulder. No feedback is in itself a form of feedback.

If the words and actions contradict each other, it is better to believe the actions!

Conflict Resolution

Conflict resolution can either be Constructive or Destructive.

Destructive Style - hinders or inhibits the conflict resolution process:

Confrontational (win or lose, blaming)

Sabotage (focus on weak points, shaming)

Manipulation (blackmail, withdrawal)

Giving in (passive, submissive)

Avoidance (denial, withdrawal)

Constructive Style ? trying to minimize the issues and avoiding the difficulties in resolving the problems:

Compromise (meet halfway, understanding)



Accommodate (open discussion, communication without confrontation)

Partnership (solutions, forgiveness, honesty)

When trying to resolve conflicts, try to clarify your goals, as you will probably share many of the same goals despite of your differences. Avoid bargaining, as this may lead to each party taking a rigid position which in turn can flare tempers.

When resolving conflicts, remember that their causes may run deep. Sweeping issues under the carpet isn?t going to work in the long term, as old baggage will be brought up each time an argument starts. Try to fully resolve each issue as it comes along. You may find the following method useful:

1. Ask the other person for their feelings. Your conflict probably isn?t about the issue that caused it to start in the first place. Don?t forget that your goal is sorting out the problem, not winning an argument!

2. Ask the other person to define the problem. Stick to solving one problem at a time, that way you can understand each problem as the other person sees it.

3. Express your own feelings. Be careful to word them carefully, for example use phrases such as ?I feel?? rather than ?I think you??

4. Define the problem as you see it. As your feelings come out, the solution may become clearer. Remember that by you listening to the other person; you will have set the tone for them to listen to you.

5. Create multiple solutions. Don?t go back to your original agenda. Aim to find alternative or creative solutions that reduce emotions and tension.

6. Rate the possible solutions. Remember that no one can force an unacceptable solution on the other.

7. Combine and create a mutually acceptable solution. Create something acceptable to both parties, if this doesn?t work ? go back to step 1 and ensure both parties are being totally honest.

8. Be sure both parties agree to work towards resolving the issue.

Troubleshooting For Problems in Communication

Control or Power Issues: Effective communication cannot take place if one person has "control" over the other or where there is not mutual respect and equality of relationship. To stay in control leads to relational isolation as the underdog reacts in anger at being manipulated or belittled.



Triangulation: Do not bring in a third party to avoid direct confrontation. If you have a problem with someone, go directly to that person. Don't dump your accusations on mutual friends or your children in the hope of winning support to balance the scales in your favour - it leads to more substantial and long-lasting damage, especially when a child is used as a weapon between parents.

19 Steps to Effective Communication

1. See communication as an opportunity to praise, build-up, affirm, heal, support and give positive reinforcement, rather than to correct, criticise, tear down, hurt, wound, lash out at. Praise opens doors to further communication, while criticism shuts them down.

2. Remember that actions speak louder than words; non-verbal communication usually is more powerful than verbal communication. Avoid double messages in which the verbal and the non-verbal messages convey something contradictory. (Credibility gap)

3. Define what is important and stress it; define what is unimportant and de-emphasise or ignore it. Avoid fault-finding.

4. Communicate in ways that show respect for the other person?s worth as a human being. ?Avoid statements which begin with the words ?You never ?? or ?I think you ??.

5. Be clear and specific in your communication. Avoid vagueness.

6. Be realistic and reasonable in your statements. Avoid exaggeration and sentences which begin with ?You always ??

7. Test all your assumptions verbally by asking if they are accurate. Avoid acting until this is done.

8. Recognize that each event can be seen from different points of view. Avoid assuming that other people see things like you do. (Perception)

9. Recognize that your family members and close friends are experts on you and your behaviour. Avoid the tendency to deny their observations about you ? especially if you are not sure.

10. Recognize that disagreement can be a meaningful form of communication. Avoid destructive arguments.

11. Be honest and open about your feelings and viewpoints. Bring up all significant problems even if you are afraid that doing so will disturb another person. Speak the truth in love. Avoid sullen silences.

12. Do not put down and/or manipulate the other person with tactics such as ridicule, interrupting, name-calling, changing the subject, blaming, bugging, sarcasm, criticism, pouting, guilt-inducing, etc. Avoid the one-upmanship game.

13. Be more concerned about how your communication affects others than about what you intended. Avoid getting bitter if you are misunderstood.

14. Accept all feelings and try to understand why others feel and act as they do. Avoid the tendency to say, ?you shouldn?t feel like that.?

15. Be tactful considerate and courteous. Avoid taking advantage of the other person?s feelings.

16. Ask questions and listen carefully. Avoid preaching or lecturing.

17. Do not use excuses. Avoid falling for the excuses of others.

18. Speak kindly politely and softly. Avoid nagging yelling or whining.

19. Recognize the value of humour and seriousness. Avoid destructive teasing.

Summary

As you look ahead to new relationships, you need to be able to break old and faulty communication patterns to allow for healthier interaction. The use of praise and positive reinforcement will reconstruct wounded and broken self-images and will build self-esteem, particularly in children. By becoming an effective communicator, you will also grow and become a better person which will positively enhance all your relationships.

Dating :: PUA Text Game - 3 Reason Why Every PUA Should Master Text Game



Before we get into the nuts and bolts of PUA text game, let's talk about the top 3 reasons why it's so powerful and how it can get you laid like crazy.

Reason Why Every PUA Should Master Text Game #1: Texting Is "Under The Radar"

One of the biggest reason why texting a girl is such a quick and effective way to get girls to like you is that texting is very "under the radar."

By that I mean, women are a lot more comfortable with texting because they see it as "impersonal", "low intimacy", and "safe". They are a lot more willing to text and flirt back and forth with a guy they just met (even if the messages are very sexual) as opposed to talking over the phone or face-to-face.

As a result, women will allow themselves to drop their shields and just "have fun." They'll be willing to talk about things that they wouldn't talk about in a phone conversation and share naughty secrets that they wouldn't otherwise.

The impersonal nature of text flirting, allow women to explore fantasies and turn on that they might otherwise feel guilty or embarrass to talk about.

In a way, it allow them to escape the sexual restrictions that society place on them. This "fantasy escape" scenario is a HUGE turn on for women. And guess who will be right there to take full benefit of it?

Reason Why Every PUA Should Master Text Game #2: Women Are Turned On By Words

Another huge reason why text seduction is so effective is so powerful is because...get ready for this...words turn women on!

Don't believe me? Just walk into your local book store or grocery store and see how many romance novels are on the shelves. Notice they're not porno movies for women, or erotic pictures for women. No, they're romance novels for women. As in books filled with freakin' words!

In fact, romance novels the biggest selling book category of all time. Why do you think that is?

See it's hard for a guy to understand this because we are so visual. We are turned on by sexy images (girls in bikinis, pornography, etc.), but women are turned on by mental stimulus (i.e. words that stir up their emotions and imaginations.)

And this is where "text game PUA" (PUA stands for Pick Up Artists) like us have a huge advantage. By knowing what to text a girl and just what words and phrases turn her on, we can quickly and easily build comfort and sexual tension.

Don't worry, in my other articles, we will go into exactly what to text to a girl you like to drive a crazy and make her beg you to sleep with her.

Reason Why Every PUA Should Master Text Game #3: Texting Is The Way Of The Future

And finally, the third reason why PUA text game is so deadly is because texting is the preferred form of communication nowadays.



Yes, we are entering a new era of our culture where text messaging is the preferred method of communication, especially in the date area.

Think about it. Texting is quick and easy. It's convenient. A woman doesn't have to interrupt her day to answer a text message. She can do while at work or out with friends.

In fact, the idea of secretly playing the "sexual & naughty" text game with you while she's out and around other people is a secret turn on that most women have. That's something that you can use to your advantage. More on that in other articles.

And of course, as mentioned above, a woman are much more likely to engage in conversation with a man she just met via text, because it's so much more casual and safe.

In fact, texting is becoming so popular that I wouldn't be surprise that there comes a day when girls will ONLY talk to guys they just met using phone texts.



And that's why it's so important that you learn how to flirt with a girl over text. If you want to keep up with the rapidly changing time, you must learn things like: when to text a girl you just met, how often should you text her, and what to text her to really turn her on and make her want you.

But fear not. You have come the right place to learn everything you need to know about how to pick up girls using text.

Breakup violence: Resources for teens and parents





Breakup violence among teens is a crime that has no zip code. It's urban, suburban, and rural. A relationship ends and what happens is an emotional surge of uncontrollable anger. It can be verbal or physical and sometimes, as in the case of Wayland, Mass., teen Lauren Astley, it can end in death.

The statistics are startling. Researchers estimate that one in three young adults between the ages of 14 and 20 has experienced some form of dating violence. "Of teenagers who are in abusive relationships, 3 percent will tell an authority figure, 6 percent will tell a family member, but 75 percent will tell a friend - that's why we focus on kids," former Middlesex County, Mass., District Attorney Gerry Leone tells "48 Hours".

Teen advocates and awareness

All through Massachusetts, teenagers are working to bringing awareness to the growing problem of dating and breakup violence. Students participating in Lincoln Sudbury High School's Mentors in Violence Prevention program give a dramatic presentation to fellow students about the warning signs of dating abuse and breakup violence. Students with Boston's Start Strong program aim to promote healthy relationships and prevent teen dating violence and Shawsheen Regional Technical High School's dating awareness club meets weekly to discuss how to educate classmates about the dangers of dating abuse.

The warning signs

According to Love is Respect.org, dating abuse is a pattern of destructive behaviors used to exert power and control over a dating partner. It can be hard to tell when a behavior crosses the line from healthy to unhealthy or even abusive. Here are some things to be aware of:



Teens and technology:

Social media adds enormous pressure -- the digital footprint that every young person lives with makes breaking up harder, sometimes humiliating. It's a recipe for disaster. "... the loss, the breakup, it's tweeted ... it's texted about. It's Facebook-ed," Leone said. "Everybody's electronically communicating about it. And what it tends to do is exacerbate the entirety of the situation.



Teen survivor helping others

Brittny Henderson of Burlington Wis., came face-to face with dating abuse her freshmen year in high school. "It all happened so slowly," Brittny explained of the increasingly aggressive and controlling behavior her once goofy, fun boyfriend started exhibiting. Brittny's father stepped in and ended the relationship for her. She now volunteers at the National Teen Dating Abuse Helpline. "Once you're involved in it, it sucks you in. Anyone can fall victim to abuse."
