An Interesting Thought: Double Dating Enhances A Relationship


It’s a normal thing for a relationship to get boring. But what’s important is you do something about it. Usually when a relationship gets boring, the couple just complains about it. In worse cases, they look outside the relationship for some thrill and excitement.

As the relationship reaches a plateau, the first thing you should consider is, is it all worth it? Is this boring relationship worth saving? If it is, then it’s time you bring back the excitement.

Now, here’s something to think about. According to Ronnie Koenig, a professional writer, double dating can do wonders for the relationship. And here are the reasons why.

You Get To See How Other People Appreciate Your Partner

When you double date, you get to see how other people appreciate your partner. You get to realize how awesome your partner is and that brings back the thrill and excitement into the relationship. Sometimes, it takes other people to remind you have an awesome partner.

You Make An Effort To Get All Dressed Up

Double dating is one good reason for you to get all dressed up. When things become too boring, you tend to take things for granted. For example, your usual date-night attire has probably been downgraded to jeans. The one good thing about double dating is that you are compelled to dress up again.

Old Stories And Jokes Become New

When you’re with another couple, the old stories and jokes of your partner become new again. You and your partner suddenly become a team in telling the old stories and jokes.

You Get To Feel The Excitement Of The Evening

There’s something about looking and feeling hot in the company of another couple. Given that you have gone the extra mile to look hot, you get to feel the excitement of the evening when you know that’s not just your partner that’s giving you a second look.

It Somehow Strengthens The Bond

Double dating strengthens the bond between you and your partner. Going out with another couple reminds you that you are in a commitment. Being in the company of another couple can remind you of all the things that you and your partner have in common.

It’s A Good Break From Your Usual Night Outs

There’s just no doubt that double dating can break the monotony of your usual night-outs.

It Creates New Memories

Being with another couple for the evening and having fun can create new memories. It becomes one of those great moments in your relationship that you can look back to.

You Remember Why You Fell In Love With Your Partner

If, in case, you and your partner end up with an odd couple for the evening; the two of you will stick to each other. It will remind you of the common ground you and and your partner share.

It’s a Good Support System

Finding the right couple to go on a double date with can actually give you some kind of support system. If you and your partner are having issues, it’s always great to be in the good company of friends that understand what you guys are going through.

You Can Get Inspiration From The Other Couple

Spending time with a couple that’s dedicated to their relationship can inspire you to do the same. There is so much to learn from other people. You can pick up a tip or two from a couple that goes the extra mile to preserve their relationship.

It takes a lot to make a relationship. So if the relationship is worth saving, then it’s time to consider double dating.


The Art of Body Language According To Tao Of Badass


According to dating tips from the Tao of Badass, one of the things that we take for granted is the power to communicate with body language. I think body language is stronger than words. We can control our words or at least consciously control the words we speak. But we can’t control our body language. That comes naturally with how we feel.

So it’s really important to know something about body language. You can go beyond the words to get the message. But then we have to be very careful. Body language, after all, is not an exact science. Also, body language can be learned and used in strengthening a lie.

This is what businessballs.com has to say about body language. Together with the tone of our voice, our body language accounts for over 90% of the meaning conveyed. Based on that, it does make sense to know more about body language, which is also recommended by the Tao Of Badass reviews site BehavioralEcology.

The Powerful Message of Body Language In A Date

Dr. Lillian Glass, a communication expert, shares some insights on the power of body language in a date. Starting from how a couple walk side by side to small mannerisms such as biting the lip, Dr, Glass shares the messages that weren’t spoken at all.

She analyzes the body language of the couple walking in a restaurant. I thought this was fitting because at some point we all go into a restaurant with a date.

“When they’re walking in, there’s a little bit too much distance between them and that’s not a great sign especially with a couple that’s been together for only seven months. You want to see them closer together…”

This is on the premise that the couple is still getting to know each other and there’s still a lot of hesitation.

Again, Dr. Lillian Glass analyzes the body language of the couple as they settled down on their table in the restaurant. She points to the girl with her arms crossed.

“You can see right here she’s really uncomfortable. I don’t think this is a girl that likes to eat much.”

Then she points to the feet of the couple.

“One of the things that is comfortable, their feet are pointing right towards each other. They’re really into each other. Definitely.”

Dr. Glass then tackles the eye contact between the couple. Their direct eye-contact positively connotes that they are very into each other. Here’s an interesting thing. The crossed arms of the girl totally aligns to the fact that she’s just not into food. The guy orders a tuna and the girl keeps her arms crossed and mouth closed. Interestingly though, she agrees to have the tuna.

Why It’s Good To Know A Little About Body Language

There’s no doubt that it’s good to know even just a little about body language. If words cannot be spoken, let the actions can send out the message. While on the other hand, picking up the messages from the body language can definitely show a more sensitive side according to Joshua Pellicer. Knowing even just tad bit of body language can definitely help you understand your date more. For guys, they wouldn’t end up ordering something that she doesn’t really like but refuses to say in words. For us, women, we can learn how to align our actions to our words.

Communication is definitely not just about the words spoken. If you really want to convey the right message, it definitely helps to know more about body language.


What I Avoid Eating On The First Date


Do you get all excited when you go out on a date? Well, I do! I usually take the time to figure out what to wear. Whether I’m going out on a blind date or not, I really take some time to fix myself up. Date nights for me are dress up nights. So be it a blind date or not, I make sure I look good. Considering the time I spend on myself, I do my best to make the.evening worthwhile. And by that, I mean I won’t do anything to ruin the evening.

One of surest ways to ruin the evening is by eating something that can upset my tummy. Such is the reason why I refrain from eating on the first date. The anxiety in my tummy has a weird effect with any kind of food intake. So if I’m not careful, the effects can be very embarrassing.

It’s Not Just Me

I thought this was just a personal thing I had with food. But apparently there are certain foods that shouldn’t be eaten on the first date. This article says it all. A garlic-scented breath and a tooth-stained smile cannot guarantee a second date. And if those silly interludes can get in the way, what more a tummy ache from eating something strange? The frequent trips to the bathroom can be very embarrassing.

I really want to make a good first impression. So while that itself is pretty hard to do, it’s better to keep things simple. One of the best ways to make the evening simple and worthwhile is by avoiding certain foods.

My Own List Of Food To Avoid

I have come up with my own list of dishes to avoid on a first date. But don’t get me wrong, It’s not that I don’t like these dishes. As a matter of fact, I love these dishes. But I will never eat them on a first date. They’re just too dangerous.

Pesto Pasta. This is a double whammy for me. While the long noodles are hard enough to eat, the pesto can get caught between the teeth. This can definitely ruin a perfect smile. That’s not exactly the kind of impact I want to make on the first date.

Sushi. I love sushi most especially when it’s dipped in soy sauce and wasabi. But in spite of that, I still wouldn’t eat it on a first date. It’s just too messy. I know I wouldn’t look good as I shove down a piece of sushi into my mouth. Having a mouth full of sushi is just no that sexy.

Burgers. Burgers are my all-time favorite. Burgers and fries are my comfort food. But I wouldn’t eat them on a first date. First of all the fries are too oily and the burgers are just too bulky to shove down my throat. I don’t think my date will appreciate seeing me swallow a whole burger. I can save that sight once we have become more familiar with each other

Crabs and Lobsters. I wouldn’t risk eating crabs and lobsters. Cracking the shell to get to the meat is challenging enough. I don’t need this kind of challenge on a first date.

This is my personal list of what to avoid eating on the first date. It’s better to get to know the person first and establish familiarity. When that time comes, it wouldn’t be too embarrassing to chow down a whole burger or a piece of sushi.
