First Year Anniversary Gifts; What Should I Give?

When it comes to choosing first year anniversary gifts you can go the  traditional or the non traditional route, the choice is yours. The traditional one year anniversary gift is something made of paper. The non traditional one year anniversary gift is a clock or other time piece.

Of course, these traditional and non traditional  first year anniversary gifts are just suggestions. Not only do you not have to take them literally, you don't have to follow them at all.

But, if nothing else, using these traditional and non traditional gift ideas may provide you with a good starting point in your gift giving hunt.

The most important thing to always keep in mind is that you want the happy couple to really get a lot out of whatever gift you choose.

It's important to consider the tastes of the two people who will be receiving the gift. If the couple is very conservative or a little more "out there" keep that in mind when choosing a gift.

Another tip is to remember that …

A Perfect Traditional Wedding Gifts

There are many gifts you can give a couple for their wedding. If you choose, you can get traditional wedding gifts or you can go a little outside the box. There is no right or wrong, just make sure that you give the couple a gift that they can both enjoy.

Traditional wedding gifts can help the new couple set up their household with many useful and necessary things. These gifts can be anything from sheets and towels to dishes and silver ware to small appliances.

Of course, today many couples have a lot of those things before they get married. Whether they lived with each other prior to marriage or just lived out on their own.

For that reason you have a lot more options when it comes to gift giving. If you know that the couple is registered somewhere, that will make things a lot easier.

A couple can go to one or more local stores and fill out a wedding gift registry. Most of this is done electronically today. They will just go through the store and scan the items that they want.


What Am I Doing Wrong?

Have you ever said this to yourself, “It seems I can’t do anything right with men.”
Being a responsible person, you work hard at a fulfilling and sometimes demanding job. It’s not that you don’t try to be kind, gracious and patient, but none of that seems to be getting you anywhere. Perhaps the men you date don’t seem to appreciate you or if you’re married it might seem as though your husband seems less interested in your marriage than he did not so long ago.

You’re open to advice, but where should you turn?

If you can relate to this, there is good news. A wonderful book called, “The Woman Men Adore…and Never Want to Leave,” will show you exactly the characteristics that men find irresistible in a woman. The good news is that these are things that ANY woman can apply. But there is one word of warning. These insights are powerful and might seem unconventional to a woman because they were designed by a man, to affect men. Please remember this rule: What works with women does not work w…

Why Do Some Women Alway's Date Loser's

Do you know of someone who has a pattern of always dating losers, bad boys, who always break their heart and leave them crying? For those women, oftentimes they need help in identifying the signs of such unreliable men.

Let’s define a loser as a man who is totally into himself and has little empathy for a woman’s needs. He is a man who has a pattern of sweet talking women in an attempt to sweep them off their feet and into the nearest bed. He will wine you and dine you and tell you how beautiful you are and how lucky he is to have met you. These men are very good at what they do because they’ve had a lot of practice!

These men are wonderful in the beginning of a relationship; however, in time they most always become less attached and more distant to their partner. Some never call back, others break dates and some even “forget” their wallet and their date ends up paying for the meal.
Have you ever met or dated a man such as this? Perhaps he never said he loved you, and whenever you spo…

When it Comes to Men, Why Do Some Women Have It...and You May Think You Don't?

Every day I hear majority of women say some variation of this:

“In the last few years, I have had relationships with men who, at first, seemed perfect for me.  They were attentive, attractive and fun to be around.  Then suddenly, as if they knew they had reeled me in, they stopped trying.  They stopped calling as much, stopped taking me out and basically stopped the romantic dance that couples do when they are falling in love.  Was it me?  After all, I think I’m attractive, have a good personality and I work out to keep my body in nice shape.  So why then, do I always end up with the men who become “couch potatoes” at my house?  The men who would rather bring a six pack over and watch football all day and then expect me to fix dinner?  Do I suddenly turn into just a “buddy” to them, the girl next door?

I see other women who, frankly, are not as attractive as I am or as thin as I am, who seem to get the “hot” men.  I don’t necessarily mean gorgeous men, but the men who take them to n…

If Only I Could Understand Men; What Makes Him Tick?

Men always say they can’t understand women, and that women are so complicated. Well, for many women, it is the exact opposite. Most would give anything to understand what makes men “tick.” Even though women want to know what he’s thinking, men are often reluctant to share what is in their hearts. What’s a woman to do?

Rather than describe all the differences between the sexes, it is often more helpful to focus on a few areas that any woman can understand.

1). Men are more sensitive than women. While that might sound silly, the truth is that men don’t have the ability to recover from emotional trauma as effectively as a woman. Because of this, men keep themselves from getting too upset. When a man hears he should just “let his feelings out,” what he translates that into is this, “If I let my feelings out, I might not be able to control them.”

2). Men hate fighting. For men, conflict is not simply resolving a problem. Fighting, to a man, means one has to win and the other needs to be tot…
