WHY YOU CAN’T FIND LOVE – HOW TO FIND LOVE
Are you wondering why you can’t find love? Or are you looking for love with no luck? If you really want to find love and lead a happy and romantic life, you need to give these pointers a thought.
Do you want to find love? Of course, you do. All of us do.
But just because you can’t find love around you doesn’t mean you’ll never find love.
You can look into the mirror every day and ask yourself the same question, “will I find love?” hoping the answer will be an affirmative one day. But staring into a mirror won’t really change your life.
THE QUESTION AT THE HEART OF EVERY PARENT-TEEN RELATIONSHIP
His silence is driving me crazy.
For two months, we’ve been dropping him off at the local community theater for rehearsals. He has performed in the theater before, and always the routine is the same. For months, we wonder what sort of role he is playing, and for months, he refuses to even read lines with us. He won’t reveal the show as it is being formed, because he wants us to first experience it when it is finally performed. Maybe that’s a teen thing, but probably it’s just a human thing: at some level, we all wish we could present ourselves to the world finely polished and finally finished.
Now, it’s opening night. The spotlights are on. The seats are full. His mother and I sit in the front row, looking slightly upward at the stage. The waiting, for us, is over. I will finally hear my son speak. The play begins.
11 NO-NONSENSE PROMISES EVERY GIRL IN HER 20’S SHOULD MAKE TO HERSELF
Life never comes with a guide but we often impose so many dos and don’ts on ourselves that we totally kill the unpredictability in our lives. In our 20s, we pressurise ourselves to be prettier, to be richer, to be smarter. Why? Because everyone else is doing the same.
Cut yourself some slack, girls. You’re not the girl who got ‘rejected’ by a guy or the girl who still can’t apply proper nail paint. Your failures say nothing about you. If you’re a woman in 20’s who still sulks because of the guy who got away or the job you couldn’t get because you were not ‘skilled enough.’
Here are a few promises that you really need to make to yourself:
HOW TO BE A PARENT YOUR CHILD WANTS TO TALK TO
As a child therapist, the most common complaint I hear from parents is, “He just won’t talk to me.” Feeling estranged from your own child is painful, and it has implications for the child. Research indicates the most important predictor of a child’s emotional and psychological stability is the closeness of the parent/child relationship. Obviously, if the child is not opening up when they are upset, the relationship is not as close as it needs to be.
There are two habits that parents routinely engage in that shut down communication and drive a child away: negating feelings and mistaking sympathy for empathy.
Sympathy vs. empathy
DISTRACTED WHILE PARENTING? HERE’S HOW TO BE MORE ATTENTIVE
Parenting is often described as one of the best and most stressful jobs that a person can take on. Becoming a parent is an incredible responsibility that comes with a new set of rules, and the need to constantly be “on.” So what happens when parents go from being “on” top of things to being distracted and “on” their phone maybe a little too often?
The term for this phenomenon is distracted parenting. You may not have heard this term before, but you’ve likely seen it in action. Here are some examples of distracted parenting:
- An entire family on their phones at a restaurant, not even making eye contact.
- At a playground, a child is misbehaving and would likely be corrected if their parent was not texting.
- At an event and one kid is running out of the door with no adult present and you think, “Where is the adult?”
SURPRISING FACTS ABOUT BODY LANGUAGE AND YOUR EMOTIONS
Susan Krauss Whitbourne
New research shows the role that body language plays communicating emotion.
As much as you may try to maintain a bland expression on your face when you don’t want others to read your emotions, you may not realize how important it is to control your body language when you want to appear inscrutable. Perhaps you’re meeting someone you’ve identified on a dating app and now want to check out in person. As you sit in your local coffee shop waiting for that all-important first encounter, you compose your face into an expression you believe to be neutral. Unfortunately, you failed to take the same precautions with your body. Your feet are tapping, you’re leaning forward, and your hands are fidgeting. Your prospective date will now be readily tuned in to recognize that you’re anxious and insecure, and the rest of the event will undoubtedly not go as you had planned.
According to new research by Gijsbert Bijlstra and colleagues (2018) of Radboud University (the Netherlands), under some conditions people are better able to recognize emotions from body language than they are from facial expression. However, it’s rare to go into a situation in which you’re reading someone’s emotions from a completely neutral, or “bottom-up,” standpoint where your expectations play no role in interpreting that person’s body language. Instead, you may be more influenced than you realize by the “top-down” process of letting your expectations color your perceptions. Perhaps in that online dating scenario, you’ve already decided that the person you’re about to meet is going to be someone you will like. You’ll therefore be more likely to ignore or discount some of the qualities that might otherwise bother you, such as the fact that your date doesn’t smile as much as you would prefer.

THE BIZARRE WAY INVULNERABILITY PREVENTS HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS
There’s a reason you’re reading this.
Perhaps you’re afraid to approach an attractive woman. Maybe you hear yourself bringing up boring topics like sports and the weather. Lots of us fall back on these topics. They’re “safe,” and surface topics that don’t risk offending anyone. But that means they won’t entice anyone, either.
Maybe it’s the fact that you’ve followed the plan others told you to, and now you hate your job or despise your lifestyle. But you refuse to leave it because you don’t want to disappoint other people.
