Palin is Already Vetted
These are just a few basic pointers that could support you in your relationship. I’m no expert, but it doesn’t take Aphrodite to have some common sense 😉
But most of all, love the with all your heart, or don’t love them at all.
Recently I have been getting into the series RuPaul’s Drag Race. It’s something I would never usually watch, mainly because I’m not into all the camp gay things that are spilling onto the television of late.
However, someone asked me to watch it, so I thought I would give it a chance.
Drag Queens are bizarre. I’ve never really fully understood them if I’m honest. And I don’t fully understand them now, though the show has given me a lot of insight into why they do what they do.
These gals (men), come from all different backgrounds, cultures and different sexualities. Because let’s not assume all drag queens are gay – take for example Dame Edna Everage.
With the time we live in, people are becoming a lot more accepting – that’s a fact. However, there is a still a lot of negativity flying around. From watching RuPaul’s Drag Race I could see some of the hardship these gals had to go through, and it got to me.
People aren’t perfect. No one is. We all have our little imperfections that make us who we are. But if we don’t fall into this ‘cookie cutter’ image, we’re not accepted by society.
People enjoy finding your imperfections and using them against you. Well, you know what? I like everyone’s imperfections.
Personally, I think that freckles, stretch marks, bruises, tattoos and scars are the coolest things ever. You start out as a blank canvas, and now look at you. All these things are evidence that you’ve lived, fallen, picked yourself back up or maybe liked an image so much that you’ve made it a permanent part of your body.
Everyone is beautiful. You’re imperfections make you perfect.
You think your job sucks? Let me tell you about the people I work with.
First, there’s this supermodel wanna-be chick. Ok, I’ll admit, she’s pretty hot, but damn she is completely useless. The girl is constantly fixing her hair or putting on her makeup. She is extremely self centered and never considers the needs of anyone other than herself. She is dumber than a box of rocks and I find it surprising that she has enough brain power to breathe.
The next chick is exactly the opposite- she might even be one of the smartest girls on the planet. She has endless career opportunities but she’s still here with us. She is a zero on a scale of 1 to 10. I doubt she even showers, much less shaves her “womanly” parts. I think she might be a lesbian, because every time we drive past the hardware store she moans like a cat in heat.
But the jewel of the crowd has got to be the fucking stoner. And this guy is more than just your average pothead. The guy is baked before he comes to work, after work, and even during work. He probably hasn’t been sober any time in the last 10 years, and he’s only 22. He dresses like a beatnik throwback from the 1960’s, and, to make things worse, brings his fucking giant dog to work. Every fucking day I have to look at this huge Great Dane walking around half stoned from the second-hand smoke. Hell, sometimes I even think it’s trying to talk with its constant bellowing. Also, both of them are constantly hungry, requiring multiple stops to McDonald’s and Burger King every single fucking day.
Anyways, I drive these fucktards around in my van and we solve mysteries and shit.
If your head tells you one thing and your heart says another, which is the one you should listen to? When it comes to relationships, both play an important role. Here’s when you should listen to your head or your heart when it comes to love:
Follow your head when:
Follow your Heart when:
Okay, so grab your pen and paper and get making notes, because I am about to hit at every star sign and the ways you can win the hearts of the people under them. Got a troublesome Gemini? Then struggle no more, I have the answers here;
Pisces – Get Creative!
Pisces are creative types who love to express their artistic sides. Join him at an art class or spend some time together in the kitchen, without a recipe.
Aquarius – Get quirky!
Aquarians march to the beat of their own drum, so you’ll need to appreciate their quirks. Discover what revs them and take an interest, even if it seems a bit kooky to you. You might even develop a love of xylophone symphonies!
Capricorn – Get domestic!
Capricorns are one of the more reserved signs in the zodiac, so if you want to be with them you’ll need to appreciate a good night on. They’ll love you to cook a meal for them, so drag out those recipe books. End your evening snuggled up on the couch with a DVD.
Sagittarius – Get social!
Sagittarians are the life of any party, and they’ll want you to join them in the center. You can still have your intimate dinners for two, but you’ll need to balance them with bigger social occasions. Plan double-dates with your best friends and some great dinner parties!
Scorpio – Get passionate!
Scorpios are amongst the most intense signs in the zodiac, and they appreciate that passion in others. No Scorpio wants to date someone who’s wishy washy. Speak enthusiastically about your interests, your work, and your feelings for your main squeeze, and your Scorpio will be eating out of the palm of your hand.
Libra – Get romantic!
While many modern men and dismiss classic romantic gestures as tired clichés, Libras lap them up. Arrive on their doorstep with chocolates and flowers and whisk them away for a candlelit dinner to make them swoon. Don’t forget to dress up too!
Virgo – Get healthy!
Virgos care about their health, and the one you have your eye on will want you to do the same. Join your Virgo’s gym or find an active class you’ll both enjoy. Then invite them to yours for a yummy and nutritious meal cooked with organic, seasonal produce.
Leo – Get pampering!
Just like the lion we associate with the star sign, a Leo loves to be adored. Leos are happiest when they’re the center of attention. Make sure to throw compliments their way and don’t hold back on the PDA!
Cancer – Get traditional!
Cancers are old-fashioned types who value traditional values. Invite yours to dinner with your relatives and a Cancer will fall at your feet. Watch early Mad Men for a little inspiration!
Gemini – Get spontaneous!
Gemini bore easily, so you’ll need to keep yours guessing. Plan new experiences for your dates, the more unusual and daring the better. Embracing your adventurous side is the key to a Gemini’s heart.
Taurus – Get charitable!
Taurus is one of the most generous sides of the zodiac, and they’ll be impressed if you want to give back. Why not organize a date volunteering at a soup kitchen or helping out at a local animal shelter? Your Taurus will love your humanitarian side!
Ares – Get competitive!
Aries love competition, so keep it sporty. Join them for a game of one-on-one basketball, or a round of bowling. You needn’t be a natural athlete either. Your Aries will love that you’re trying your best to win!
Just some advising pointers to anyone who might be experiencing a little bit (or a lot) of jealousy in their relationship:
– Remember they are with you!
The difference between you and that person you’re jealous of? You get to be with your partner and the other person won’t! Remember that you have the advantage and enjoy your relationship instead of letting your day get spoiled.
– Make your feelings known.
If you’re feeling a little jealous, let your partner know. If you feel like a certain coworker or friend is getting way too close for comfort, talk it out with your partner in a calm way. Chances are they had no idea that person was even bothering you.
– Don’t get mad!
Jealousy and anger often go hand in hand. Unfortunately, a bad temper can really turn up the heat on jealous feelings and insecurity. It will cloud your mind and cause you to say or do things that you regret if you’re not careful.
– Try to channel it into something positive.
Jealousy is not necessarily a bad thing. It’s okay to care so much for someone that you want them to yourself. Just remember to channel it into something positive like a reminder that you are lucky to be with them instead of a threat.
– Don’t get possessive
One of our natural instincts is to get possessive of the things (or in this case, people) that we love. This may work with an object but your partner is a living, breathing person with feelings of their own. They deserve your love and respect but being possessive and demanding of them is rude and painful.
– Understand how the jealousy can affect others.
Any time a strong emotion is involved, it usually changes the way we behave. You may become more cynical or find yourself saying things you don’t mean. If you’ve noticed that you keep having a negative effect on other people (especially the ones who may be close to your partner) understand that your problem may need some fixing.
– Be confident!
One of the biggest causes of jealousy is fear that you’re not good enough. Don’t let your self-esteem change the way you approach your relationship. If you’re feeling insecure about your appearance then get active about taking better care of yourself and doing what you can to be the best you. However if it’s something deeper, this is an issue you may need to take more time to work through.
– Don’t ever make comparisons.
You would never compare your partner to someone else in a negative light so why do it to yourself? There will always be someone better looking, stronger, smarter, faster, younger, richer or more talented than you but that does not discredit anything you have to offer the world. Our differences are what make us special and your partner is with you because they know just how special you really are.
– Don’t make demands.
Sometimes this feeling can get the best of us and we say things that will only make it worse. It’s important to be open and honest with your partner but remember to do so in love and with patience. If your partner has been spending time with someone you’re not comfortable with, don’t demand that they end communication with the person. Work out respectful ways that will ease your fears and keep everyone happy.
– Understand the consequences.
There are consequences to jealousy in a relationship. Often times, it results in a lack of trust. Jealousy can damage a relationship beyond repair if you are not careful so make sure you’re not risking your relationship just because of your own doubts.
So I had a conversation recently with someone recently about ‘friends with benefits’. I wasn’t being asked to be one, we were just discussing them and their practicality. From our discussion we came to a distinct difference of opinion. I thought it was impossible, whereas my friend thought it was very possible and had experienced it for himself.
So, without going into the Pros of being a ‘fuck buddy’, I am going to state my argument of what I think it cannot possibly work between two people, be it man and woman, man and man or woman and woman.
The old fashioned (or decent) way of looking at sex is that it should be something that happens between two people that love each other. However, in recent days, sex has become seen as a sordid act rather than.. well sex just being sex. This is because of today’s youth. You only have to go to Mardis Gras (such as the one that happened in Cardiff recently) or ANY Gay Pride and you will find two people hooking up in the crudest ways possible and in the most indecent of places.
There is always emotion in sex, otherwise I personally think it would be lame. I understand that porn stars and prostitutes will argue that there can be sex without emotion, however, the prostitute code is to never kiss their client as this could spark some sort of emotion. So I guess fuck buddies could limit their kissing..
Anyway, my point is that at some point one of the members of this arrangement is going to develop feelings for the other, and this is going to come crashing down on their arrangement. One may get jealous. Though what’s to get jealous about? It’s just sex right? Meaningless and fun sex? This is my point, there will always be an emotion involved for one, or two of the people involved. At some point feelings are going to emerge.
This is why I think that friends with benefits can never and will ever work out for a long term arrangement. A scenario:
Mary and Tod are fuck buddies. They have has this arrangement for several years, let’s imagine 2 years. However, Tod thinks he has found a woman he could settle down with (I guess a permanent fuck buddy? lol) and so calls off his arrangement with Mary. Okay, so now Mary has no booty call on the Tuesday night she usually sees Tod. She begins to think about the previous Tuesdays. Now she imagines he’s doing his funky stuff with this new woman.. Feelings emerge. Jealousy. Anger. Boom. Recipe for disaster.
Friends with benefits are always going to cause tears for one of the members.
It is sad news that we hear about the death of Baroness Margaret Thatcher (1925 – 2013).
I have to admit, I am absolutely disgusted in some members of the British public on the reaction of a human being’s death. Before I start discussing this, I would just like to add that the woman was a daughter, a mother and a wife – a human being – like you and like me.
Secondly, regardless of political affiliation, a human being has died, and not in the kindest of ways either. Should we not be at least respectful that someone has died?
Well, some of us, the ones with consciences anyway, are saddened by her death. I am a member of the Conservative party and do support some (not all) of their views. However, I don’t think one needs to be a Conservative to know not to throw disrespectful and distasteful jokes about regarding a woman who has recently died (I was told a joke two hours after her death – needless to say I was disgusted).
I could argue until I am blue in the face with people about whether Mrs Thatcher was a good or bad Prime Minister (I firmly believe she was the best Prime Minister the UK has ever had), however, I don’t think we need to. We just need to sit back and pay our respects to a woman who has recently passed away, leaving behind family devastated.
I am actually astounded by the sheer ugliness of some people by the entire situation. I have lost an awful lot of respect for people who I cherished because of their candid jokes and comments about Maggie Thatcher.
Well, I for one, would like to speak on behalf of everyone when I say this:
Rest in Peace, Margaret Thatcher. You will be missed by millions.
First they came for the communists,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a communist.
Then they came for the socialists,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Catholic.
Then they came for me,
and there was no one left to speak for me.
