Sometimes, when dating fails there are trusted friends who are always around to bug you about your life and always there to save you. And sometimes those friends can be the bridge to a new life, a bridge to get to know someone. For sometimes, friends connive to set you up on an unexpected and thrilling date, a blind date.
Being a part of a blind date is not that bad; it gives you the excitement and thrill of knowing who you have been set up with and most blind dates actually ended up to be great. Although you’re friends may be annoying at times, and you might have second thoughts of going in a blind date yet only they know you. And don’t worry, later on there will be a few tips and advices on how to survive a blind date that you’ve been set up with.
Surviving a blind date
Going in a blind is such an adventurous experience that you might want to go through once in your life. And if in case it didn’t go on as planned, you can still survive the rest of the night. And if you get too excited, you can always try a few tricks and pry something about your date from your friend. Here are a few tips until the rest of the date:
• Never expect too much. Expectations hurt. Simple as that, just remember that the more you expect, the more you get disappointed. Just think of your blind date as a night out with one of your friends, that’ll keep the excitement down.
• Investigate. Bug your friend who set you up. Get some information, even just a little about your date even though your friend notices that you’re prying something out of them just go ahead, ask about your date, about his or her personality so that you will know what to talk about during dinner.
• Don’t be rude. If you’re going to be late on a date at least let your date know so that he or she won’t look dumb while waiting for you. And if your date is kind of boring or not that much of a fun, still respect that. Just wait for the night to end, be polite until the date is done the very least you can do although deep in your thought you wanted to strangle your friend upside down.
• Keep up with the small talks. Open a conversation that either of you can relate, or talk about anything and everything under the sun, that’ll keep the uneasiness at bay.
• Be honest. Don’t lie about anything just so to keep your date happy and satisfied. Be warm and honest at the same time; remember one lie leads to another. If winning them over is your goal you might keep on going until something happens, what would have happen if things turn did worked out after the date, think about it.
• Tell them what you think after the date. This is the most important thing when you’re dating. Let them know if you wanted to see them or not, don’t leave them hanging, it’s quite rude.…
Are you tired of trying to find a date in a club? Ever feel like every club-hookup leads to a one-night-stand? Well, mostly because alcohol is involved in this situations. Pubs are not the best place to meet singles; you don’t get to see the person under its real light. Here is a list of great places that are better for finding a date than discos.
• Social networking
Have you ever been to a social networking event? It is a place where your only job is to go around and socialize with people. What is the better way of meeting possible dates? There is an another alternative similar to this one. Host your party. For example, you could organize a ‘’bring your single friend’’ gathering.
• Community groups about your hobbies
Do you enjoy a particular hobby? Reading, writing, history, archeology? Go and find the perfect community group for you. The people that you are going to meet, already share an interest about the topic with you. What is the better conversation starter than a mutual passion about a subject?
• Sport events
This is a charming way of meeting a girl or a guy. Between all the emotions and yelling, you will find out that you both share a same affection for a sport or a team. Through sports is how you develop an interesting bound, similar to the one you have with your best buddy.
• Organized trips and excursions

• Coffee shops and parks
These are the perfect places where you go to relax. So go to the coffee shop and try not to send ‘’I am busy vibes’’. Sit by the door and smile at the person who you find attractive when they walk in. Take your dog out for a walk to the park and see which other dog he likes. You might like the other dog’s owner.
Eventually, you fall in love because of the other person’s personality, not their physical appearance. Try to find your future partner somewhere meaningful for you both.…
Assuming you’ve managed to find a date online (or in the traditional way) then one of the most important dates in the romantic calender is creeping up on you and it’s time to think about what to do to make it go with a swing.
Traditionally it’s the man who makes the running when setting up Valentines day treats but increasingly women are taking a leading role. We’re presenting a few tips today that should help you out regardless of your gender, but you might recognize that there is a theme to them that normally applies to the failings of men rather than women.
So sue us
Anyway, if you want all the work you put into getting a date to pay off, the best advice is: don’t make a mess of Valentines day. And to help you along, here’s 5 simple tips to take away with you.
1. Make an Effort!
You’d be surprised how many people think that turning up on someone’s doorstep empty-handed is the right way to set up a perfect valentine’s day. Well… durrr. You don’t have to break the bank, but turning up in your scruffiest jeans and T-Shirt with a pocketful of good intentions is rarely the way to someone’s heart. Small gestures like a simple bunch of flowers or old favorites like chocolates are all you need to show someone that you’ve given them a little bit of thought.
I’ll admit here and now this is where I fall down myself! Events like the theater and restaurants get booked up weeks in advance. If you’re planning on a trip somewhere special don’t rely on being able to phone up the night before and get a table or seat. Your date isn’t going to be that impressed if you end up in McDonald’s, whispering sweet nothings over a Big Mac.
3. Don’t be a Tightwad!
Even if you’ve ended at McDonald’s (see point 2) then it’s good form to foot the bill. While equality might be the buzzword of the moment, the point of Valentine’s day is the chance to treat someone special and not involve them in the details of planning and finance.
Sitting alongside point 1 is the simplest step of all – put the damn day in your diary! Even if you’re not planning a fabulous event with violinists and flowers and boat rides and sweet, sweet love then just remembering to phone… buying a card or saying “I love you” in the morning is just a gentle reminder of what the day is all about and reassurance that you’ve still got a little “spark”.
5. The Element of Surprise!
If you are planning to do something nice, best of all is if you can make it a surprise. Once your table is booked, play down the event. Say little things like “let’s just get cards this year – the whole thing is sooooo commercialized now”. That bumps up the romance count by a factor of five when you make your big reveal! Oh – and fellas, if you are surprising a woman, don’t leave the surprise too late. If she’s come home from work, got in her pajamas and wiped off her make-up, she won’t be too thrilled if you turn up with 5 minutes notice that she’s going somewhere posh. It’ll still be a nice surprise for her to find out in the morning and leave plenty of time to do whatever it is that girls do before they go out.

What is true love?
You cannot describe love easily. You can describe it, but one, two, three, or even hundreds of words are not enough to describe what love truly means.
Why? It is because love is a universal feeling. Everyone can feel it, everyone can experience it. Those are the reasons why love cannot be described by just a single word. Everyone has different meanings of love. They have different perceptions about love. Everyone sees it differently.
If you ask me what love means to me? I’d definitely say love is eternal. No matter how much people try to burn love, it will always prevail when it wants to. You can never teach yourself to burn that love within your heart if it really is meant to burn a thousand flames.
One thing is for sure, true love never dies.
