The Importance of Compatibility in Dating

Attraction Has Nothing to Do With Physical Appeareance

Attraction Has Nothing to Do With Physical Appeareance

Every guy wants a beautiful girlfriend, but is that the only thing that matters? It’s easy to get carried away with looks alone, especially when you’re trying to impress your friends. The problem with that, though, is that you’re not going to end up staying with her forever if you don’t take compatibility into account. After a point, sticking with someone forever starts becoming important, and looks won’t cut it. If you’re still on the fence about this, keep reading and you’ll see things our way in no time.

Looks Don’t Last

If you go for a looker, then you’re going to be out of luck in a decade or so when those looks start fading fast. Ladies tend to age faster than the guys anyway, so you’ll just be disappointed when all you have left is an aging bag of bones and you never really fell in love with her. She might be fun to have on your arm right now, but you have to keep in mind that it won’t always be that way. Besides, if she’s only there for her looks, then you two won’t really have much in common and the relationship won’t work out because you jumped the gun. You’ll seem cool for a while, but after that you’ll just be sad.

Better for Conversation

Find A Topic In Common To Talk about

Okay, at first you might not actually be too interested in conversation, but after the honeymoon period it’s going to change in a big way. There’s always a period when the lust dies down, and that’s when a lot of relationships fail. Don’t let things go down that way – it’s easy to keep a relationship alive if you took the time to get to know her first. If you two were compatible from the start, then it’s going to be no hassle at all to keep a steady conversation going. On top of that, if you two are compatible, then you’re going to have a lot in common. This means the conversations can be about topics you like instead of just her, and will stimulate you two to keep going. Even if sex isn’t what your relationship is all about anymore, you can still keep it alive and well if your lady gets along with you on a personal level and not just in the bedroom.

Dating Your Best Friend

You Will Become Best Friends

You Will Become Best Friends

The best part of all is that you’ll feel like you’re dating your best friend. There’s no better way to have a relationship than that. If you two are that way, then every day and night will be easy – it’ll be like having a sleepover every night, and getting to have sex on top of that. Honestly, there’s nothing that can top that. It might seem to you like you’re settling if you prioritize personality over looks, but ignore what your friends say. They’re all going to have relationships that go nowhere, and they’ll end up alone. You’ll end up having the time of your life with a woman you can spend the rest of your days with. You can laugh at them when they’re old and sad.

4 Methods for Getting the Most Out of Sales

Learn How to Get The Most Out Of Sales

Learn How to Get The Most Out Of Sales

Do you love to hit the shops every weekend hunting for that deal that you’ll be able to brag about for months when you meet up to chat with your friends? If it’s important for you to stretch your dollar and get the most bang for your buck when you’re perusing the selection at various retail stores, then you know that store sales can sometimes feature deals so good you feel like you’re stealing the item. Therefore, it’s to your advantage to be familiar with the tactics that stores use when setting up sales. If you’re already familiar with the timing and pricing schemes usually used in sales, then it’s time to familiarize yourself with some tips that will ensure you’ll walk away from your next round of sales with an armful of bags, a smile on your face, and cash left in your wallet.

Set a Budget for Your Entire Shopping Trip

Before you even get in the car to head to your favorite shopping mall or retail outlet, you need to have a firm budget in mind. Knowing how much you plan to spend before you start is a great way to make sure you focus on buying just the things you either really need or really want. If you normally shop by using your credit or debit card at the register, consider stopping by an ATM on the way to the store and withdrawing your budget in cash. This will make it much easier to both keep your budget in mind and to stick to it. What’s the point of giving yourself a limit when going to a sale? Isn’t the point to cut loose and splurge? It’s not if you want to keep your finances in order. By giving yourself a limit, you’re able to still enjoy the sale and get the things you want without going overboard.

Have a Good Idea of What Things Cost

Do Not Buy Overpriced Items

Do Not Buy Overpriced Items

If you know or suspect a big sale is coming up soon at a store you love, take a special trip there just to peruse their selection and look at items you might want to buy. Write down their prices and a note about what item you’re referring to on a pad of paper or on your smartphone. Do some comparison shopping online and get a feel for what those items generally actually cost. Then, when the sale rolls around, you’ll be able to head back to the store equipped with the knowledge of what actually makes a good deal. Is that blouse that’s marked 30% off still almost the same price as it was before the sale? Chances are, the retailers marked up their goods more before the sale started to give the illusion of savings. Or you might find that you’re actually getting a steal on an item! Either way, you’ll have a good sense of where you are and aren’t saving the most money.

Don’t Load Up on Cheap Impulse Buys

Lots of stores that run sales tend to put out baskets or displays of smaller, low-ticket items throughout the store, and especially up near the register. While these items can often be cute or even functional, you can easily blow your whole sale budget by just loading up on these cheap, small items. The problem comes from their inexpensive nature. When you look at the price tag, you’ll probably think that you can easily afford it given its size relative to your overall budget. Of course, you’ll continue telling yourself this even as you pick up more of these items. By the time you get to the register with the things you actually wanted and all of your impulse buys, you might be in for some serious sticker shock.

Avoid Making Mid-Week Purchases

Stop Making Mid-Week Purchases

This might seem like common sense advice, but don’t go out to the shops in the middle of a week right before you know a sale is coming up. It’s fine if you’re going to research, but keep your credit card in your wallet and keep your wallet tucked away. The last thing you want to do is spend money on an expensive item only to discover that it’s gone on sale a few days later when the weekend starts. There’s always a chance you could complain to the management and receive the sale price for the item, but this isn’t a courteous thing to do and you should avoid it if possible. To simply ensure you aren’t in this situation, keep yourself up on news of what sales are coming up.

Dealing with an Annoying Coworker: A Survival Guide

Dealing With Annoying Coworkers

Dealing With Annoying Coworkers

Everyone in their career will inevitably have to deal with one of the worst workplace nuisances: the annoying coworker. This can mean any number of things depending on who you are and what you do. The one thing that remains consistent, though, is that you work with someone who’s annoying for any given reason. They might talk too much, convolute meetings, or even just be outright obnoxious. Whatever the reason you’re having an issue with a coworker, there are certain approaches that can help you survive without a confrontation. The worst part of the annoying coworker is that you can’t really report them for anything specific. Here are some survival tactics for getting through the day intact.

How to Approach a Coworker with Tact

When you’re annoyed by someone, it’s easy for it to come out, even if you don’t intend for it to. This happens, for example, when you’re on the phone with someone you don’t want to talk to. The common advice is to smile into the phone, even if you don’t want to, because the other person can hear it in your voice. The same thing goes for the annoying coworker. When they come up to you or address you, just smile. Don’t try to look neutral, because you’ll just look angry. The more you smile, the more you can hide your true feelings. Tactfully listen to what they have to say, and then make a graceful exit.

Tactics for Distancing Yourself

Distance Yourself From The Annoying People At The Office

When you just need to distance yourself from the annoying person, there are a few different things you can try. The first one is literal, physical distance. If your coworker you can’t stand is working in a particular area of the workplace, try to find a reason to work somewhere else. Ideally they won’t be sharing a cubicle with you. If they do, you can also make up an excuse to put on headphones if you’re working on something yourself. That way, they can interrogate you as to why you don’t want to talk. If possible, just try to go somewhere else, and hopefully they’ll take the hint. Contrary to popular belief, not all annoying people are oblivious to other people’s feelings. The person in question may not know you think they’re unbearable, but they might be able to take the hint that you just want to be left alone. Make it clear that you’re trying to keep to yourself to get your work done, but don’t make it about them.

How to Complain to Your Boss

If They Are Making It Impossible To Work. It’s Time Tell The Boss

If it gets to the point where you need to complain to your boss, do so in an informal but discreet manner. Don’t ask for a formal meeting or go through the process of filing an actual complaint, because that’s just going to make you look like the opposite of a team player. The last thing you want to do is inadvertently cause your annoying coworker to actually make a real problem for you with your boss. You don’t want to make yourself look bad, so bring it up casually. You might start the conversation because your concentration has been interrupted lately or that you find you’re not meshing with the person who shares a desk. Go in with a goal in mind, too, that’s not just firing the annoying coworker. If you want your desk moved, then just ask.

Can You Drink Alcohol without Gaining Weight?

Teens Dream Of The Moment When They Can Drink Alcohol

Alcohol is one of the best perks of being an adult, but it can be a bit of a downer once you realize it can be difficult to have a few drinks without having to watch your weight after you indulge. It’s not always easy to try and drink moderately, especially if you’re drinking socially. However, it can really do a number on your weight and health if you’re not careful. You might be wondering if it’s even possible to drink alcohol without gaining weight. In a perfect world, it would be possible to drink booze without ever gaining a pound, but that’s sadly not reality. There are ways that you can go about minimizing the effect of alcohol on your body, however. There are some things you need to know about alcohol and how it affects your body so you can ensure that you don’t wind up gaining weight after a weekend of partying or a long vacation with tons of cocktails.

Why Does Alcohol Make You Gain Weight?

Sweet Alcohol Drinks Are Bad For Your Diet

Sweet Alcohol Drinks Are Bad For Your Diet

There are several reasons why alcohol consumption can make you gain weight, but it seems that the biggest issue is the caloric content as well as the fact that your body prioritizes the digestion of alcohol over anything else in your stomach at any given time. That means that if you ate a big dinner and then go for a night of drinking, your body is going to work on the alcohol instead of working on the dinner you ate. That means you can wind up gaining weight because your body processed the alcohol instead of the food. It’s unfortunate, but that’s just the way our bodies tend to work. It’s important to keep that in mind when you’re choosing to go out for a night of drinking – don’t eat a big fatty meal beforehand.

Drinking the Right Type of Alcohol

There are some types of alcohol that are just loaded up with calories and don’t pack a whole lot of punch. You’ll wind up consuming way too many calories for very little effect. It’s important to pick the right type of alcohol to drink if you’re worried about your weight. Stay away from the sugary mixed drinks that have miniscule amounts of alcohol in them, unless you’re only looking to have one or two drinks for fun and not to get drunk. Stay away from anything that’s been mixed with diet soda, as well – it seems like it would be better for you, but it actually can make you drunk faster and have more sugar and calories in it.

Being Careful about Overindulging

Don't Drink Too Much Alcohol

Don’t Drink Too Much Alcohol

It’s important to be very careful about overindulging. It’s not easy to regulate how much you drink when you’re already halfway there, but do try to avoid binging over the weekend. If you have a wild weekend, you’re going to have to really crack down during the week to avoid gaining weight because of it. Stick to a drink or two once a week instead of a ton of drinks during the week, and you should be fine. Just make sure to keep on top of your exercise regime so you don’t have to worry about it too much. That way you can enjoy yourself without having to stress too much about how it’s going to affect your waistline later on.

The Hardest Games of All Time

Play Dark Souls And Enjoy The Chase

Play Dark Souls And Enjoy The Chase

Most games are designed for you to have fun and blow off a little steam. Other games are made to make you tear your hair out, throw your controller across the room, and never play it again. Each game has varying degrees in difficulty. There are thousands of games out there, ranging from the easiest games you can think of, to the hardest games ever made. Here is a list of some of the hardest games of all time.

Dark Souls

Most games made for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 have been relatively easy compared to the games on the Super Nintendo and Nintendo. That all changed when Dark Souls was released. Dark Souls is the sequel of Demon Souls, on the Playstation 3. Dark Souls is a punishing game right from the beginning. With barely any direction on what to do or where to go, you are thrown right into the fire and face a boss within the first couple minutes of the game. Though the game is extremely difficult, it is never cheap; with each death (and you will die a lot), you will learn something new about the terrain or enemy that you come across. The more you die, the more you learn about it, and the better the reward feels when you finally beat the boss that you have spent the last three hours on. You have to be extremely patient in this game, but once you start to figure it out, it’s one of the best experiences you will have on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.

League of Legends

This Is A Multi Players Game

League of Legends Is A Multi Player Game

You may be wondering to yourself why a multiplayer game is on this list; much less a multiplayer game that ranks and places you with players that are your level. League of Legends has over one hundred different champions, with several different items that you must learn and figure out the best combination of uses. Along with five different lanes that you must (or should) learn, last hitting, how to kite your enemy, timing, as well as positioning, it’s a lot for even the professionals to take in, practicing over twelve hours a day for one game. If all that isn’t enough for one person to learn, if you aren’t playing with friends all the time, you will have to play with up to four random people, who you have never meant, nor know their type of playstyle; not to mention a team of five on the other side with the very same requirements. Be careful with this game, because one misstep can be the difference of defeat or victory in a 40+ minute game.

Ghosts n’ Goblins

Ultimate Ghosts N' Goblins

Ultimate Ghosts N’ Goblins

You are tasked as playing Arthur, a knight who must save the princess. With the controls being hard enough to master (there is only one way and at one speed you can jump) and a grand total of two hitpoints to last you, the respawning enemies, hard platforming, and insane bosses will frustrate you to no end. Oh, and there are no save points. Once you lose all three (yes, only three) lives, you must start from the very beginning of the game, regardless of how far you made it. The worst part of it all? Once you make it to the end of the game, you really didn’t. In order to save the princess, you must complete the game not once, but twice. To this day, this game still gives gamers across the world nightmares.

Battletoads

If you thought that Ghosts ‘n Goblins was difficult, you haven’t experienced anything like Battletoads. At first, Battletoads seems like your typical beat ’em up game. You traverse whatever stage you might be on, and beat up the bad guys on the screen until a finger tells you that you are allowed to move on to the next portion of the map. That all changes after only a couple of stages. You hit the motorcycle speeder level, and it’s all over. Once you get to this point in the game (and it won’t take long), you jump on the speeder and you must navigate in between the blockades in your way. At first it seems relatively easy, and the game gives your brain enough time to process where you can go next…that is, until they keep on coming, and it doesn’t stop. You either have godlike reflexes, or you are able to memorize the entirety of this level. Many gamers have never made it past this level and further into Battletoads’ hellish depths, and many never will.
