Single

I’m often asked by people that get to know me why I’m still single. My reply is always that I haven’t met a special young lady that I see a long term future with as my potential wife one day and feel will make a great mother to my future child. Not to mention, I’m happily single and in a good space in life.

Also, being in a romantic relationship works two ways. She has to want to be in one with me and I have to want the same with her. Thus, sometime ladies don’t want to be in one with me either, which is totally fine since everybody isn’t compatible.

Therefore, don’t ever feel bad about being single, since the goal isn’t to be in a relationship just to say you got somebody. However, it should be to be in one with a person you view overall as an asset and not a liability. Furthermore, you want the chemistry to be natural between the two of you, along with sharing similar key beliefs and values in life in my opinion.

Do you get ask why you’re single often? If yes, what is usually your response and how does it make you feel?

Grade

I’m sure everyone has heard an individual in a relationship complain before about something they wished their significant other still did often that they use to when the two of them first started dating. It’s common for most people to get too relax in a relationship with someone that they’ve been with for awhile. Thus, I think all couples should give each other a weekly relationship grade.

It’s important to be consistent while you’re with someone and not to stop doing things that your significant other like, especially if it heavily contributed to them wanting to be with you in the first place.

As a result, this is a chance for the two to hold each other accountable, along with receiving and giving constructive feedback. Furthermore, this also a chance when they can let their partner know what they’re doing well.

Do you feel a couple giving each other a weekly relationship grade is a good thing?

Liability

I believe that the people we interact with daily in our lives are either an asset or liability to us. Therefore, if you have to choose, I’m sure most people will prefer the person that they view as an asset. Yet, a lot of people have friends and family members, along with a current significant other that is a liability.

  • One-Sided Relationships

One key sign that a friend or family member is a liability to you is if you find yourself making them a priority and helping with something on a regular, but they’re hardly ever available and make you feel like an option often when you need them, even if it’s just for something small.

  • Not Happy Around Them Often

If you find yourself less happy and more stress most of the time you’re around another individual because of what they do or don’t on a regular, there is a good chance they are a liability in your life and that you need to distance yourself from around them.

What are some other examples of a person being a liability that you can think of?

Assume

One of the things which makes the world great in my opinion is that everyone doesn’t like the same things or think alike. Yet, most disagreements between family members or friends happens when one person assume that everyone does think like them. However, that is definitely not the mindset you want to have, since it can lead to a lot of miscommunication that could be avoided.

  • Give Others The Respect You Want In Return

I’m hoping you wouldn’t want someone that you care about to have an issue with you and not let you know about it directly, but address the issue with a number of other people instead. Thus, why would you want to do that to another person?

  • Listen To Understand

If you do have a discussion with the individual that you’re mad or disappointed in, be sure to listen to with the intent to understand instead of listening to reply. This is important to do because the two of you might of been looking at things from different perspectives. As a result, neither one of you might actually be right or wrong and the other person honestly might not of had any clue of what they did before you told them.

Has there ever been a time where you initially assume someone intent in doing something to find out you was wrong after a conversation with them?

Diet

A number of people have probably gained some unwanted weight since the pandemic has started and plan to go on a diet to lose some of those pounds. As a result, I think that it’s important to keep the following things listed below in mind while on a weight loss journey.

  • Slow Progress Better Than None

While on a diet it’s vital to set realistic goals and not get discourage if you’re not losing pounds on the pace that you will like. Furthermore, you got to remember that you didn’t gain all the pounds that you’re currently trying to shed overnight, so you certainly not going to lose it all at one time either.

  • Keep A Supply Of Fruit At Your Home

Your body will naturally crave unhealthy sweets and soda that it has grown accustomed to receiving when you first start a diet to lose weight. Therefore, to reduce those cravings when they occur and not to screw up your diet, have some fruits at your home available to eat as a substitute.

What are some other things that you feel are important while on a weight loss journey to remember or do?

Name Brand

Most of you have probably come across a lot of huge sales on popular name brand clothes during this pandemic at places like Macy’s. I’m very much aware that everybody current situation is not the same. Yet, there are some key questions that you should ask yourself before making that purchase when you’re thinking about it.

  • Should It Be Use Towards Something Else?

If you need another adult to help you out financially on a regular then you should probably think twice before purchasing popular name brand clothes for yourself just because they are on sell. Also, just because you may have extra monthly money currently coming in, that doesn’t mean that you need to spend it all that same month.

  • When Was The Last Time You Got All Dress Up?

A sale usually makes people want to purchase something because they feel like they’re getting a great deal on it. Yet, if you just been mainly going to the grocery store with a mask on and been avoiding social gatherings of ten or more people, you’re currently not going anywhere I feel where you need to get all dress up for. Furthermore, there will always be new sales at the start of every new season of each year.

Has there been any new name brand clothes purchases recently that you’ve had buyer’s remorse on?

First Date

Most guys goal when they ask a woman out on a first date is for her to have a good time with them so she’ll want to go out again. Yet, sometime there are things that guys don’t do, even if it was unintentional, that can have a woman not wanting to even go out once with them.

  • Know Key Things That She Likes To Do

A guy should know before planning out a first date what type of food the woman like, along with some activities she enjoy doing in her free time, mainly to increase his chances of her saying yes and having a great time while with him.

  • Inform Her In Advance

It’s important for a guy to let a woman know at least a day in advance, along with providing the time and what all he plan for the two of them to do on the date in my opinion so the woman doesn’t feel like she was just a last minute backup plan. Also, this helps to possibly give her time to change up some things on her schedule to go out on the date if she initially was busy.

Have you ever been ask to go out on a first date by a guy at the last minute? If yes. how did that make you feel at that time?

Can’t Afford

No matter how much a person make, I feel just about everyone should have a monthly budget so you’re not spending more most months than what you’re bringing in. Furthermore, just because you can rent or buy something doesn’t mean you can actually afford it always.

  • High Rise Luxury Apartment Downtown

If you stay in a luxury high rise apartment downtown in any major city but can’t afford to go back to your hometown to be with most of your family during a holiday, that is sign to me that you might want to downgrade to a place that cost less. Also, you can still find a place that is nice but a little cheaper monthly in other areas of the city.

  • Luxury Car Purchase

It is not a good look in my opinion to have a luxury car you’re still paying on monthly that you have an accident in that leaves a noticeable dent with over two months to pass by without it being fix. That is usually a sign that the person might want to get a car that the yearly maintenance and parts isn’t as high and easier to maintain and more within their budget.

What are some other examples of things you’re seen a person able to rent or buy but actually can’t afford it every month?

A Real Friend

People often confuse a person that is actually an acquaintance as a real friend, mainly due to platforms like Facebook. Furthermore, if you ask five random people of their criteria of a real friend you probably receive five different answers. However, I think all of them would agree that if an individual starts to act different towards you just because you tell them NO or have just as much as them now in life that isn’t a real friend.

  • Fair-weather Friends

Some people are only friends with you based on what they feel you can do for them. As a result, they will use you until they can’t use you anymore and quick to forget all the times you said YES to what they want and only remember the few times you told them NO.

  • Friends That Don’t Want You To Do Better Than Them

There are some people that can be a great friend to you long as they feel you are not on their level and deliberately surround themselves all the time with other individuals they feel are beneath them as well. Yet, when they feel like you’re doing just as good or better than them in life, they start to act different unfortunately.

What are some other things that you feel are red flags of a person not being a real friend?

Household Bills

There isn’t one right answer in terms of how monthly household bills should be split between a couple living together. The key thing is for the two of them to be on the same page with clear expectations establish. Thus, I’m simply giving my opinion on how I feel things should be divided below.

Our Yearly Salary Is About The Same

  • I consider marriage to be a partnership and not a sponsorship. Therefore, if we both got good jobs and make about the same yearly my expectations is for my partner and I to split all household bills 50/50 each month.

I Make Significantly More Than My Partner

  • A key motto of mines in life is to treat others like I want to be treated. Therefore, I can’t have my partner splitting the household bills with me 50/50 if I make way more than her, since I wouldn’t want her to do that to me. Furthermore, I want to make sure my partner still has money after bills are paid to purchase nice things. As a result, I got no issue in having an 80/20 split on bills for that to be the case.

Do you agree or disagree on how I feel monthly household expenses should be divided between a couple and why?
