Dating advice: things women really don’t want to complain about

So you’ve been on datepositive.net for a while and you’ve started dating?

That’s great.  If you are looking for a relationship, either short or long term, it’s worthwhile addressing one of the things that can quickly destroy a good thing – complaining, better known as nagging.

This week, datepositive.net will take a look at the things women complain about in regards to men.  Firstly though it seems that men do think that women like to complain or nag.  I am pretty sure that isn’t true and would like to suggest that the solution is we all try to complain a bit less and try harder to make a partner’s happy, then that’s a good start.

Remember, complaining or criticising can destroy a good thing, so try to keep your relationship a happy and nag-free one.

Too much swearing: Women are guilty of this too.  But it seems that some men use really bad language too often in front of women and for the most part most women don’t like it – especially if there are kids around.

Helping with tidying up or housework: OK, so you are just dating and it’s still a pretty romantic time. Nevertheless, if you help around her place a bit, you can show that you’re a team player and and care about her, especially at the end of a long day.

Expecting her to tidy your place: Connected to the point above is expecting your girlfriend to tidy your place.  If you have had a really busy time and she wants to help out, that’s one thing. But dating a woman in the hopes that she will tidy your mess or cook for you is a big no-no.

Leaving the toilet seat up: This is an old one and it is usually number one of most people’s list.  It’s not just that the seat is up, sometimes a guy’s aim isn’t quite right and the splashing is off-putting.  Women particularly don’t like the seat being left up at night when the might use the toilet in the dark.

Leaving your clothes all around your room: Expecting a romantic and hot night with your girlfriend?  Don’t expect her to be too thrilled to go into your room and find your stuff everywhere, or dirty dishes lying about. Take time to tidy up a bit – it doesn’t have to be perfect – and she will be impressed.

Bringing dirt into the house: This is usually about not wiping feet and/or leaving shoes on.  More and more this is an accepted form of behaviour now when entering someone’s house.  So if you’ve been hiking, gardening or messing around in the garage, give your shoes a quick wipe.

So guys, check out this list and give it a bit of consideration. Women hate to nag, so don’t make it easy for them. Keep the criticisms out of the relationship and love is sure to grow.

Next time around – the things men complain about.

Great reasons for using online dating sites

Dating websites give you a lot of help with what can be a difficult venture. You might be aware of what kind of person you are looking for, but it can still be really hard to find that person.

Today, online dating websites massively improve your chances of finding someone special. There are a lot of reasons for this, such as confidentiality, the number of singles on a site, etc.

With online std dating such as UK hiv dating site datepositive.net, the search for the right person is that bit easier because people are also looking for you! There are many singles who are in your region who want to meet someone too.  That’s what the site is for, unlike a bar or a club.  You get to post a what is hopefully a great profile about yourself and that allows the other members on the site to find you based on what you have posted.

This is why it is so important to take advantage of the opportunity to post a really good profile, you want to attract people and show that you are serious about using the website.

Websites remove the some of (but not all) the disappointment and pain that comes with all most all other types of dating. Although you may find that some people don’t answer your emails sometimes, you can just forget about them.  The reality is that you don’t have to try at a relationship and then be rejected. Instead, you are able to go through the internet to find someone special, allowing you to avoid the rejection that is so common within the physical dating world.

Online dating means that you can get to know someone before you meet. You can get a sense of a person through emails and phone calls – and we always recommend speaking on the phone before meeting.  Let’s face it, you must have had a blind date and then discovered that it is just not right for you. A dating website mans you are able to get to know more about the other person before going on a date.

A dating site like datepositive.net means that you can discover is if someone is interested in you even before you send a message.  By sending a flirt or adding someone to your favourites, you can see if they respond. This take away the sense of risk involved in talking to a complete strange at a bar or a party. It makes contacting people feel easier.

While there has been a lot of discussion around dating website membership fees in the past, the truth is that most dating websites – and especially datepositive.net – is much less expensive than actually dating and this means less financial risk for you.  The truth is that datepositive.net makes dating a cost-efficient way to meet new people.

Confidentiality is an important benefit of online dating as well. You are giving out personal information about yourself, but the website protects you and that’s why its internal messaging system is there for you. You don’t have to risk giving out details that could lead to any further annoyance, such as giving out your address or personal phone number. Instead you can feel confident that all your most important information is kept safe and that no one finds out any close information about you.

Dating online is probably the most convenient and safest method of dating today. It gives you a help when it is needed most, and lets you fit your dating and search into your lifestyle and your schedule.

Surge in interest in online dating

The holidays may be the time for a new relationship, with some online dating sites seeing an average of 40% more page views per user between Christmas and New Year.

“It’s been a trend that we’ve been noticing for many years now,” says Mamboo’s COO, Gloria Diez “Could it be more than just the effect of the mistletoe?”

The company is reporting some interesting statistics, including members sending 30% more online gifts, as well as a 38% increase in spending on the site. The number of messages sent and received by members also doubled.

The company made contact with two psychologists to find out why. Barbara Lavi, a Family Therapy Specialist, was happy to share her theories: “At this time of year everyone is flooded with images of family and companionship. Singles may see this as a complete contrast to who they are, so set out to change things for the better,” she advises.

Isabel Moya, Youth Psychology Therapist, had this to say: ”During the Holidays, singles are put in a tough position – having to cope with and navigate social situations in which they are often the only person without a partner. This can be very uncomfortable, prompting a desire for change,” she explains.

Some sites also forecasts a rather romantic January, with 60% more traffic to their site expected during the first two weeks of the year.

If you feel you are living with the stigma of HIV or Herpes, or an STD, try and HIV dating or Herpes dating website such as datepositive.net – it will make life much easier for you.

We Were Here – a community under seige; HIV & AIDS in 1980-90s San Francisco

David Weissman’s We Were Here is a new documentary about the emergence and spread of AIDS in San Francisco.

More than 15,000 people died from the virus by the mid 1990s. What the director captures is not just the pain of the group, but a real destruction of communities. Eventually many in the US and around the globe developed a deep sense of compassion for gays and went back to rethink the “moral question” of that time.

We Were Here has been described as a probing look into the emergence and rapid spread of HIV and AIDS and is a horrifying yet sensitive exploration of a community facing a dreadful experience and a true crisis.

Weissman goes through an entire community and explores many viewpoints that tell the truth, and well as providing a narrative that’s understandable from any audience’s point of view.

Whether or not you are familar with events of the 1980s and 1990s, you will still feel a strong connection with characters in the documentary. We Were Here has some very weighty moments, and the format can grow tiresome. It is made up of interviews with news broadcasts in between.

But it is saved by the fact that it does not fear going close to contradictions. Paul Boneberg, one of the film’s more political five, describes the gay community as such: “If you took a group of young men and told them that they could have sex as much as you want, how much do you think they’d have? They’d have a lot of sex.”  Earlier on in the film one of the profiled people asks that people remember that ”[homosexuals] are not some network of people who just like to have sex.”

The five characters here don’t need to prove anything or make any grand arguments, so their willingness to share moments of great personal strength don’t come off as preachy. As Ed Wolf, a counselor who attested to being “terrified” by anonymous sex but somehow managed to comfort those who could not survive the disease’s grasp, says, “It’s not heroic, you just do it.”

The documentary was released in September and is now available on DVD and Blu-Ray.
