    How to make a long distance relationship work on EuroDate


    EuroDate, the top destination for international singles from Europe and abroad, often finds users asking the question: How can they make a long-distance relationship work? EuroDate’s expert and experienced staff have heard this question many times before, and have compiled a list of suggestions for users that will help them find a successful, long-term relationship with an international single.

    The first step is understanding that a long-distance romance requires a lot of patience. “Many people trip up and jeopardize the relationship by trying to rush it and not allowing it to develop naturally. Of course you want to meet this new, exciting single in person right away, but you really can’t pressure this and rush it” said Dave Woods, EuroDate Spokesman. It’s important to develop a lot of chemistry and make sure that you really know your partner before you meet up. Be patient and use your time to get to know everything about the amazing single you’ve met.

    Know your partners expectations. Once you’ve been using EuroDate’s premium chatting services to have fun, romantic conversations, it’s time to make sure you’re both on the same page and have similar long-term goals. Is your relationship ready to head to the next level, or do you want it to stay more platonic in nature?

    It’s also extremely important to communicate frequently. If you’re only exchanging one message a week, maybe you’re not that serious about each other. In order to keep your long-distance relationship vibrant and growing, you need to be talking very frequently. Even if it’s just a simply conversation where you ask your international partner about their day, it lets them know you care.

    Learn a bit of their language. A great way to let an international love interest know you’re into them is by learning a bit of their language, if it’s different from yours. Sure, almost everyone in Europe speaks English, but you’ll feel much closer to your partner if you show a strong interest in their culture and language.

    About EuroDate
    EuroDate is an exciting dating service that connects over 40,000 European singles to each other in an easy to use online environment. Members can quickly and securely set up a profile and immediately begin searching for the perfect partner. Of course, starting a relationship and building it is more complicated than that, so EuroDate has a robust chat and messaging system that keeps singles connected 24/7.

    Step Aside, Tinder and Hinge: New Data Shows Online Daters Using Desktops to Find Love


    In an age where people do almost everything on their smartphones and have been flocking to matchmaking apps in their quest for love while on-the-go, recent data found that those who are looking for more lasting relationships overseas are choosing to sift through profiles and check out photos on desktop computers rather than on smartphones or tablets.

    " people want to take time out of their busy schedules to sit down at a desktop and find someone special "
    According to new online data pulled from leading international dating website AnastasiaDate, both men and women around the world logged onto the website 3.7 million times in total during September 2014 – 3 million times via their desktops (81 percent), 365,000 times via their mobile devices (10 percent) and 358,000 times via their tablets (9 percent).

    “This new information suggests that, while we have apps on smartphones and tablets for basically every need in our daily lives – from ordering food and buying movie tickets to reading the newspaper, and yes, looking for love – people want to take time out of their busy schedules to sit down at a desktop and find someone special,” said Lawrence Cervantes, AnastasiaDate’s Chief Communications Officer. “It may initially seem like the opposite of what we would expect in today’s technologically driven society, but it makes sense given that true connections and relationships are formed when people set aside their smartphones and tablets to sit down at a computer and write out a thoughtful note to someone they are interested in.”

    Not only are these people choosing to spend more time on their desktops to look for love, but they are also choosing international online dating over traditional local dating now more than ever, and this phenomenon is increasingly expanding throughout other areas of the world simultaneously. In addition to highlighting online daters’ technology preferences, the data indicates the top cities and countries for people who are looking for love internationally instead of at their neighborhood bar down the street.

    Last month, in September 2014, top cities where people searched for international connections included London, Sydney, New York, Mexico City and Los Angeles, and top countries were the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and Mexico.

    “After looking at this data, it’s clear that there’s a major appetite for international online dating, especially in large cities, with London, New York, Los Angeles and others leading the charge,” added Cervantes. “We anticipate that this trend will spread to other cities, as well – outside of major metropolitan areas – as people seek to connect beyond just a right or left swipe on a ‘hot or not’ app.”

    About AnastasiaDate
    AnastasiaDate is the leading international dating service that facilitates exciting and romantic companionship with beautiful and interesting women from all over the world. Founded in 1993 by a Russian-American couple, AnastasiaDate now has over 4 million international users and attracts more than 10 million online visits monthly.

    Dana’s Top 3 Tips to Holiday Survival


    MarriageMaterial.co



    The holidays bring up a myriad of mixed emotions. Friends get engaged and older relatives harass about when the single are getting married. On one side, most people are happy for their friends who are taking the next step in life; and, on the other side, it highlights that they are still single and no closer to finding THE ONE.

    " I just don’t understand why you are still single. "
    Dana says, “It is even more depressing to be nagged by family with the same questions year after year, when are you getting married? - or the killer statement - I just don’t understand why you are still single. The sanest person would question themselves and become defensive in the same situation.”

    Dana’s Top 3 Tips to Holiday Survival

    · Eliminate all losers out of your life. Do not waste time with someone you would never introduce to your family or colleagues, much less marry. Getting rid of ALL non- marriage material is hard - no question about it. But settling for someone inappropriate is worse. At the top of the list is that he /she does not want to commit to you.

    · Start being the person to attract the kind of person you are looking for. If you have succumbed to watching Netflix from the couch while eating fast food and you want a partner who is physically fit you had better run not walk to the gym.

    · Do not put your life on hold or defer happiness until you meet The One? Take that trip overseas, become a homeowner, get a new hobby or entertain more. It will eliminate the smell of desperation and make you a much more interesting and confident person.

    Dana Michel, an Ivy League educated, single native New Yorker intends to change the dating landscape by offering marriage-minded singles, both straight and gay, a place to connect with others seeking a serious relationship. Michel states that the site implements a modern approach by 'crowdsourcing' love in much the same way as Facebook or Yelp. Her aim is to establish an online relationship community that reflects her life experience where people interact on a daily basis.

    Michel’s “aha” moment occurred a year and a half ago when a friend told her that after a mere four dates, the guy she was seeing wanted to know if he was marriage material. He took their relationship seriously, and he didn’t want to waste his time if she felt differently. Boldly stated, Michel comments, “Why waste time? Men are very straightforward about what they are looking for. It's seen as a positive; as being masculine. But when women do the same thing, they come across as shrews.”

    Subscribers are charged $99 per year, an amount established to ensure singles are serious in their pursuit of wedded bliss. Amateur matchmakers can also join for free, and receive compensation if the friends, family members and co-workers they recommend reach certain relationship milestones such as first date, engagement and ultimately marriage. The amount of compensation is set by the members: there is a $10 minimum and no maximum. MarriageMaterial.co appeals to those looking for love as well as the inner matchmaker in all of us. The site is open to singles of every ethnicity and faith, but targets busy professionals aged 27 and up in major cities.

    With over a decade of digital experience, Dana Michel has worked in the advertising industry on premium accounts such as Pepsi, Cover Girl, Pantene and Viacom. And to her credit, Ms. Michel has been featured in The Daily Mail, Entrepreneur and The NY Post among other outlets.

    She is currently in discussion with a network to create a TV show inspired by MarriageMaterial.co and looks forward to sharing the service with the international community.

    MarriageMaterial.co



    A fairly new dating site that implements a different approach to finding love. Introducing MarriageMaterial.co a dating site launched in early 2014 by female entrepreneur Dana Michel as an online solution exclusively for marriage-minded singles searching for true love as opposed to flings or casual hook-ups.

    " an online solution exclusively for marriage-minded singles searching for true love as opposed to flings or casual hook-ups. "
    These days most busy career-oriented people look to the internet to meet people whether its online dating sites or dating apps. The work/life balance has shifted and its been harder and harder to make time to go out and meet people during the daily hustle.

    Dating Expert, Dana Michel offers her top three tips on how to make balancing a love life and work life more manageable:

    · Make a point of saying yes rather than no to going out and mingling with people. Break the routine of work, home and work again

    · Stop making excuses because you are afraid it will be a waste of time. Go out! You just might enjoy yourself and even better, you might find you are compatible with someone you would never have imagined

    · Get out of your comfort zone. Do something you have never done before. It will make you more interesting and increase your opportunity to meet the one. Sign up for MarriageMaterial.co, go to meet-ups, join a club or take up a new activity

    · Take a true assessment of your physical presentation to the world. It is critical to look at yourself with and without clothing in the mirror in decent lighting. Do you need to go to the gym? Do you look dated? Do you look boring?

    · Be honest...are you in desperate need of a makeover. If so, go get one ASAP. People are visual and make snap judgments.

    · Get in touch with your sexuality. So many people put it on the back burner because they work all of the time and they rarely date. Invest in sexy lingerie and consider taking a couple of pole dancing classes.

    This online dating company is urging users to get STI tested


    Sexually transmitted infections (STI). It’s not exactly a favorite subject to talk about, but it affects a lot of people and can be very serious. Unfortunately, each new year brings around 19 million new STI cases. These are staggering numbers for something that can be easy to prevent with safe sex practices. As a reaction to stats like those, one online dating company believes it has the responsibility to lead the way in creating STI awareness, and helping to put an end to the spread of infection.

    PriceDate.com



    PriceDate.com has recently begun a PSA campaign to shed light on how many people are affected by STIs, and to provide encouragement for everyone to get tested regularly. At first, the popular online dating company doesn’t seem like the likeliest hero in the fight against STIs, however PriceDate felt like it needed to help its users stay safe and healthy.

    The owner of PriceDate, Alex Greenberg, actually feels that “online dating companies have a moral obligation to promote safe sex and STI awareness amongst their users.” For PriceDate, it’s a no-brainer, and even an imperative, to help promote safe sex practices and keep its users—and everyone—healthy.

    Cold Hard Facts
    Why does PriceDate feel the need to help? Online dating companies’ users are looking for love, and sometimes love can lead to sex. With user bases who are actively engaging in sexual activity, online dating companies can serve their users best by encouraging safe behaviors. In fact, a recent survey found that 43% of women had sex with a date they met online, and had a higher risk for contracting an STI. Men don’t fare much better, with a 25% higher risk of gonorrhea, when using social dating applications. This higher risk of online daters to contract an STI is why PriceDate knows it has to take action to spread awareness.

    Given the vast number of people who are affected by preventable STIs, spreading awareness of safe sex practices is of great necessity. Perhaps the most startling statistic is that a vast percentage of people infected with STI’s don’t even know they have one.

    Through encouraging safe practices through social media, and encouraging regular testing, the percentage of those with STIs can hopefully be decreased significantly as people start to practice safer sex and also get treated for curable infections. It’s PriceDate’s mission to remove the worry of health risks from the dating experience; entering the online dating pool can be stressful enough on its own.

    The Real Life Nightmare
    As startling as STI statistics may be, what’s even more startling are the real life horror stories from people who have contracted these preventable infections.

    Ruby M from Sacramento, California shared with us, “I was fortunate (but unfortunate) enough to contract Chlamydia, which is treatable. The embarrassment of finding out I had a disease and having to tell my partners they needed to get tested was terrible. I wouldn’t wish that situation on my worst enemy.”

    Jonathan A from Ontario wasn’t so lucky. Jonathan found out he had HPV, the virus that causes genital warts, back in 2012 and that he had passed it to his long time girlfriend at the time. They are no longer dating. He said, “Finding out I had this STI that’s untreatable changed my life. It was bad enough that I passed it to my then girlfriend, but trying to date new partners now that I’m newly single again is even more difficult. It’s so much easier to have safe sex in the first place than to live the rest of your life with something like this.”

    Dr Janet Hall of Australia recently addressed the growing rate of STI infections among seniors in her article, “The generation that keeps on lovin’, but at what cost?”

    In the article, Dr Hall points out, “In general, our older generation grew up with a code of silence around sex, but now they are more open about talking about and experimenting with sex. It’s much easier to meet new partners with the advent of internet dating and the ease of international travel.”

    This unfortunate trend is one that doesn’t discriminate based on age, and the rise of online dating users only makes it easier to meet new partners.

    A “Challenge” to Other Online Dating Companies
    “If online dating companies really care about their user base, they will bring this to the forefront,” says Greenberg, “It’s my hope that some of the major players in the online dating arena will shed some light on inherent STI risks. Awareness and education are the keys to reducing the stigma of getting tested (and treated).”

    So who’s going to the be the next online dating company to jump on the STI awareness bandwagon?

    You Can Make a Difference
    As a company that excels at bringing people together for social interaction, it makes complete sense that PriceDate has chosen to use social media to help spread its campaign for STI awareness.

    Readers are encouraged to use the hashtags #GetTested #WrapIt and #SafeOnlineDating to spread awareness for the campaign and help keep daters healthy. Another way to spread awareness and encourage people to get tested is to share the Infographic that accompanies this article.

    Along with using the hashtags on social media and sharing the Infographic, PriceDate is hoping users will also take action in real life. Getting tested on a regular basis and wearing condoms during sex are two of the most important, and surprisingly easy, ways to protect yourself. Keep yourself safe, and encourage your friends to do the same using those three hashtags on social media. With everyone’s help, it’s possible to keep online dating full of love and not full of risk.

    10 Great Things About Dating Now That You Are A Senior!

    I am now “officially” considered a senior. A “young” senior to be sure, but certainly closer to seniordom than youth. Like you, I feel no older than 35 most days. Sometimes I feel much, much older. So, now that you are a senior dating takes on a special appeal. So let’s look at a few ways that dating is better now than ever before!

    10 Great Things About Dating Now That You Are A Senior!
    1) FREEDOM - Finally! No children, no job, and no restrictions on what you want to do and when you want to do it. Time to use to do those things you never got a chance to do when you were younger. While you may not have all the energy you had in your 20’s, you can still have adventures and be of service to your family, church and community.

    2) Knowledge - This brings us to #2. You possess a wealth of knowledge. Your knowledge encompasses a variety of interests, talents and topics. When you can combine the best use of both work and personal skills, you will find out that you still have much to offer and much that is needed.

    3) Wisdom- The wise use of your talents and appreciation of both yourself and others. My grandpa used to tell us that you don’t get old being stupid. Wisdom is to know this for fact, but not have to flaunt all you know to make yourself look good.

    4) Self Confidence - Self confidence is sexy! Yes, you are still all of that. What is different now is that instead of getting someone’s attention in the first 20 seconds, it may take a minute or two. But we don’t want that shallow person anyway, do we?

    5)  Humor – By now, you should have cultivated and grown your sense of humor. Getting older is FUNNY! If you cannot laugh at yourself, you won’t be good company for anyone! Laughter is important and the older you get, the more you can appreciate a good laugh!

    6)  Health – While you health may not be perfect, if you are still standing, breathing and striving to enjoy your life, your health plays an important part in how you feel and look. Strive to be healthy, to eat better foods, and get enough rest and water. Avoid all that unnecessary sugar and your body will remain your friend.

    7)  Self Awareness – Self Knowledge Knowing your own self is one of the most important character traits you can have. By choosing to learn more about you, what makes you happy or sad, you can embrace yourself fully. This self knowledge allows you to make wiser choices in a mate. You no longer need to appease or impress others. You know what you want and are willing to wait for that right person to show up in your life.

    8)  Gratitude - You appreciate yourself, your family, your community and your God. Your actions show your appreciation. Gratitude is a gift your give both yourself and others. Thank you!

    9) Conversation – Just talking and being able to HOLD a conversation is a crucial relationship skill. It is both learned and innate, but as you age, you become less self conscious, opening the way to free flowing conversations. Being able to both talk and listen adds a depth to relationships that is priceless.

    10) Satisfaction! Finally you are able to just be whether alone or in a relationship. You no longer need another to make you feel complete. You KNOW you are complete within yourself. Your established relationship with yourself shows the path to being satisfied in the here and now.

These are a few of the musings I have had thinking about what wonderful gifts and character “senior” daters bring to a relationship. Connecting with another senior or being bold and going younger it’s all about what YOU feel comfortable with. Since so many of us “feel” younger in our minds, a happy medium would be to date both younger, older and the same age. Find your own groove and establish your OWN rules.

Life is a song- Are you singing yet?

    Benefits Of Online Dating


    Hello my name is Charles, I'm a 55 year old black man who is trying to find my soul mate in the online dating game. I will give you a little background about myself along with a few experiences I have had with online dating.

    I got married at a early age when we didn't even know anything about computers. I met my wife in junior high school, that's when the mini skirt was out, she was a hot little latina girl who I just couldn't resist. We would stay after school and go to the back of the school and make out, yeah that's what we called it back then. Well in time she went her way and I went my way until we bumped into each other when we were close to 18 yeras old. We simply picked up where we left off in junior high school, had some kids and got married in that order. We stayed together for about 20 years. Man she broke my heart when I found out she was cheating, but I moved on and started a new life.

    black online dating
    That's when I got back into the dating scene but didn't have a clue how to proceed. I remember I would come home from work everyday, clean up real good, put my cologne on and go to the local supermarket, banks, retail stores etc just to try and get phone numbers, and in time I got very good at it and gain much confidence doing it. I had plenty of women going in and out of my apartment and was having the time of my life until I met the most beautiful girl in my town, and to make it better I was 42 years old at that time and she was only 27. We hit it off quick, went together for a couple years before we had a kid together, but I didn't marry this woman because she was too young and too flirty with other men, but I was crazy about her if that makes any sense to you.

    We stayed together off and on for about 11 years, but during some of our off time in the relationship is when I bought my first computer. It wasn't long after that I discoved online dating. I liked it better than getting dressed up everyday and hitting the streets looking for women, all I had to do was pay a few bucks to scan pages of gorgerous ebony cuties, and trust me I met my share. I could not possibly tell you about all of them here right now, it would take up too much space, but lets say it was very interesting in the beginning.

    Now as I have gotten older and grown tired of the dating scene I still can't really say anything bad about online dating, to me it's no different than meeting a woman at the bank, in a store or on the street, they all have issues, it doesn't matter (lol) The pretty girls online are a little harder to get to know, most of them have the attitude that online dating is beneath them and they were persuaded to try it by a friend, but I imagine there are alot of lonely pretty women out there. The average nice looking women are more agreeable and will meet you half way, but I was spoiled by my ex girlfriend and was only satisfied with the beautiful girls and quickly grew tired of the average ones. I know that sounds selfish but I can't help it that's just the way I am. I want the best because I have kept myself in decent shape, good job, gentleman, wouldnt hurt a fly and I just think I need a super fine woman to compliment that. Yeah online dating can work, but I'm tired now and ready to hang it up, in fact I have a date this weekend with a very beautiful cutie that I hope will be my last online dating experience, I've had my share!
