How Do You Describe Yourself For Online Dating?

Posted in: ,

By Erika Ettin

I’m smart, funny, and attractive. I’m humble, successful, and kind. I’m romantic, thoughtful, and trustworthy. I’m sexy, passionate, and fearless. I’m compassionate, honest, and friendly.

How many times have we seen lines like these in online dating profiles? If I had a nickel for every time I saw what I call an “empty adjective,” I’d be a very rich lady. What is an empty adjective? It’s a word that you use to describe yourself that can’t be proven until someone gets to know you.

My Experience With My Nigerian Husband - American Blog Reader Writes

Posted in: , , ,

This originally came in as a comment on the post about Nigerian men making good husbands on Can A Typically Traditional Nigerian Man Make A Good Husband? It seems this writer has not had a good experience. Read on...

He would also do things on purpose by carrying out drama. When I would cook a meal for both of us. He would turn around and cook himself something else different. So I decided to keep the argument down. I would just prepare a meal for myself. And when I would do that he would ask me where his dinner is? Always making it his business to irritate the situation.

Some Facts and Stats On Sexually Transmitted Infections [Infographic]

Posted in: , , ,

The 1800s, and the birth of the industrial revolution, is deemed by many historians to have been the beginning of a sexual revolution also. More and more people were pushed together in densely populated areas, and attitudes to sex began to become more liberal. The 1960s also acted as a catalyst for increased sex due to the invention of the birth control pill, enabling women and men to have the opportunity to act on impulse and have sex for pleasure, as opposed to having sex for procreation alone.

Of course not all countries and cultures have evolved and developed sexual liberalisation at an equal rate. Ireland for example, prohibited the sale of condoms from 1935 to 1978 due to heavy influence from the Catholic Church. There has also been evidence to suggest that the number of sexual partners varies in different regions. Swedish people generally have many partners, while the Chinese tend not to have many.

5 Ideas To Help People With An Addict In Their Life

Posted in: , ,

By Jenna Brown

How simple life would be if you could just love someone and cure them of their addictions. How many parents, spouses or partners, aunts, uncles and children would will a loved one back to recovery, just with a prayer or a smile or a hug?

Unfortunately, that is rarely the case. Addictions are something like a house fire: They have their own will and hunger and tend to burn until they have reached as much of the house as they can. When they are done, a few charred corners remain and the addiction sits there, like glowing embers, waiting for more fuel to begin burning again.

#HoldACokeWithYourBoobsChallenge For Breast Cancer Charity Turns Out To Be A Hoax!

Posted in: , , , , ,

The #HoldACokeWithYourBoobsChallenge supposedly encourages women to post photos online with a soft drink held in their cleavage, all in the name of raising money for breast cancer charities. So far, this has led to many images showing mainly topless women or with tapes and hands barely covering their nipples, flashing their boobs on social media believing it was for charity.

However, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation said the challenge is not raising money for them and has no connection to their charity - but would happily receive donations if donations do start coming in from the challenge.
