b) You can go for movies that have romance and love as its main theme. The visual treat is sure to impress your partner to a greater extent than being read a love story. Moreover going to a movie together is something that is always considered very romantic.
c) The genre of romantic comedies is another popular one that is sure to lighten up the mood and convey the message to your partner very effectively.

e) Love poems are also considered extremely romantic and if you can write one of your own, that would be ideal. If not, pick one that conveys your emotions the best and impress your partner with it.
e) Even if you are not a very good singer, you must endeavor to sign some love songs and your partner is sure to feel very wanted and cared for knowing that you are making an attempt to impress him or her with your voice.
The important thing you need to keep in mind is that love needs to be expressed at regular intervals and both men and women love to feel wanted. They require the constant reassurance that they are still desirable and their partners still have the same intensity of feelings towards them. One thing is for sure; your partner or your self will never get bored of saying that you love each other. On the contrary, it is sure to make the relationship stronger and stable.
Strive to do something different that will be appreciated by your partner and they can be as simple as saying that you love her and why you think she is special for you. This can be done on phone, through a card or by whispering into her ears. The only requirement is that you should come across as sincere and genuine when you tell your partner as to why you appreciate your partner and the desire to demonstrate the same. Any attempt to be artificial will be quickly identified by your partner and will only serve to spoil your relationship for ever.
Most partners love being surprised with either a nice candlelit dinner or a movie and if you can supplement it with a nice gift, the gesture is very highly appreciated.
The above are only few of the ideas you can try out to express your love. There are many more that you must discover and implement from time to time so that your partner feels wanted and on top of the world.

Anti scam guide

Online dating is very exciting and is a very convenient way to communicate, flirt and strike up relationships with women across the world. However, it has also got its flip side wherein many people have also got cheated by unscrupulous single women masquerading as eligible ladies and wanting to get married to Western men. This practice has been particularly concentrated and orchestrated by single russian ladies, whose main aim is to only get hold of easy money in the garb of striking a relationship with affluent men.

This is not to say that you must become wary about every single Russian woman who elicits an interest in your profile, but you could observe some due diligence before entering into any kind of relationship or correspondence with any woman you meet on the net so that you are not left poorer and disgruntled with the online dating scene.

You could look for certain tell tale signs as under which should alert you of the possible wrong intentions of the person at the other end. They are:

  1. Since money is the reason behind this, you must remember to never send across money to any woman that you have just met over the internet and watch out for the person mentioning her poor financial health frequently on her chats with you. That could be the ground being prepared by her to win your sympathy and eke some money out of you.
  2. She could come out with many reasons to make you sympathise with her. It could be the death or illness of somebody in her family or that she has been robbed of her salary or that she has been thrown out of her job due to her refusal to have sex with her boss. Another innovative reason for wanting money is to say that she needs the money for accessing the internet or for improving her communications skills by enrolling for English speaking classes. Any of these would be used by her to gain your empathy and make you part with some money.
  3. Having earned your trust through some regular interaction over some time, she could express the desire to visit your country saying that she desperately loves you and would like to see you in person. At this point, to test her intentions, you must tell her that you plan to visit her country in the near term and that she should not be taking the trouble. Her reaction to this should give you an idea of what is on her mind and if she persists in making the visit, you know that she has something else in mind and could be asking you for visa and ticket costs very soon under the guise that buying tickets in her country would cost much less. You must ensure at this point to not give in and tell her that you know of a good travel agent in your own country through which you can get the tickets at affordable prices.
  4. Any attempt by the lady to rush through things should be treated with suspicion.
  5. If the lady shows very little interest in what you do, but just wishes to meet you and take things further, you should be alert. Women generally make a lot of enquiries before selecting a life partner and if somebody does not even the most basic questions, you know that the intention is not honorable.

The above suggestions and tips are not exhaustive by any means, but should help you detect a cheat on the internet and make sure that you do not lose your valuable money,you can also read more on anti-scam guide.

Philippine Wedding

November 19th, 2009 No comments

Women from the Philippines are most sought after by Western men and many of the dating sites like filipina women featuring Asian women are flooded with members who are looking for such women.

What is it about Filipino girls that are so attractive to men from the West?

Well, the typical characteristics of Filipina women can be summarized as under:

  1. They are very beautiful and possess tremendous patience, besides being very gentle in their behavior.
  2. They respect tradition and are very particular of maintaining it.
  3. They are family oriented and love to take care of their husband and children.
  4. They take pride in maintaining their house and are great at domestic chores including cooking.
  5. They are faithful and will try their best to make the marriage work even if the husband is unfaithful.

A typical philippine wedding is clearly distinguishable and though they are not as elaborate as they used to be, the atmosphere is very religious. They do not believe in short term relationships and enter into matrimony only when they genuinely feel that there is love between the partners.

The wedding process comprises of various stages. It begins with the “Pagtatapat” wherein the male just makes a statement of intent to get married to his partner. This method of proposing is very different from the typical Western practice of asking the bride for her permission to marry her. The stage is now set for “Singsing” which is the process of the male partner dating his partner and also gets familiar with the bride’s family, besides wooing her with expensive gifts. The parents of both partners get together to decide on the type of gifts that the bridegroom’s parents must bring and while there is some bargaining that goes on, it is usually settled to the satisfaction of both the parties and the deal is solemnised.

One of the primary reasons for the bargaining is the fact that the bride is usually very young and marriage is going to impact her education. The girl’s parents bargain hard to get the maximum compensation for handing over their girl and it could take some weeks to fructify. However, it is all done in good spirit and there are no harsh words exchanged.

It is now time for the preparations for the wedding called the “Pamanhikan” and this is an elaborate exercise involving the venue, the meals to be served and how the expenditure needs to be shared between both the parties. The next one which is the “Paninilbihan” stage is now no longer in vogue. This process is to verify the commitment from the male partner towards taking care of the bride’s family as previously the newly weds would stay at the bride’s house. Today that is irrelevant as most couples stay separate and have their own apartment.

Some other interesting facts about Philippine wedding that are different from other weddings are:

  1. Despite their conservative nature, it is not necessary for the bride to be a virgin.
  2. The couple is not allowed to have sex on the first night after marriage as they believe that the drinks imbibed during the festivity would impact the child if the bride gets pregnant.
  3. The couple must plant a minimum of one tree before wedding as otherwise the priest will not solemnise the marriage.
