OC Romance | How Important Are Looks to You?

Now that you have stopped staring at the cluster of hot guys above, I have your attention…I guess.

When it comes to picking your beaux, how important are looks to you?

It is common and easy to end up wading in the shallow end of the dating pool, but you could be selling yourself short if you are only bating your hook for the pretty fish. Though attraction is important, the value you place on it can become a problem in your dating choices. Focusing more on looks can overshadow the better qualities in a mate such as intelligence, commonsense, values, sensitivity, stability and so on. If you are putting more value on looks, here are some things you may be doing: Read more…

OC Romance | Is Flirting Healthy For Your Relationship?

Flirting is often one of the first things people do–whether they know it or not–if they’re attracted to one another, meeting new people, or just wanting to get to know someone. Whether it’s simple back and forth chatty conversation, or eyeing one another in acknowledgement, flirting done right can add spice and ante in your relationship as long as you don’t cross the line. According to AskMen.com, “Looking and playful flirting can be considered healthy components of keeping a strong relationship going.” So why is this helpful? Well, Dr. Seth Myers, author of Dr. Seth’s Love Prescription, says:

 “We’re only human and our sexuality lives on, regardless of whether you are in a relationship or not. When you’re in a relationship, a little flirting is arguably healthy and normal. Those who say one should never flirt with someone else most likely unconsciously flirt, at least a little when their partner isn’t present.”

OC Romance | Supporting Your Man

Being in a successful relationship takes a lot of work and dedication. Let’s face it, sometimes ‘just love’ isn’t enough! With the rollercoaster economy along with the basic ups and downs in life, it’s very important to make sure the two of you are supporting each other whole-heartedly.  Often times, our men get more down in the dumps than us and need that extra pick-me-up that lets them know everything will be ‘ok.’ Support goes far beyond stroking a check or dishing out some cash, so here are a few tips to help support your man through any of his trying time.

1. PAY ATTENTION TO WARNING SIGNS

When your man starts acting funny, the first thing you may think is he’s creeping around or up to no good. It’s so important to pay attention to other signs that something may be wrong. Is he not as talkative as usual? Does he seem unmotivated or uninspired?  Is he more argumentative or lackadaisical about issues? If you start to notice these things, there may be an underlying problem. Think back a few days before you began to notice the issues and ponder…were there signs that a problem was looming?

*Maybe he’s not feeling appreciated at his job, continuously low on cash, just lost his job, or is not feeling like an equal partner in the relationship. Read more…

OC Romance | Distractions Become An Attraction

When you are dating and feelings have gotten to a point where you and your partner have gravitated toward an exclusive relationship, it means that you now provide each other with undivided attention.  This exclusive form of dating is a progressive step but is not fully secure.  There is a possibility that your eyes and heart are still transitional because you may not be content and fully convinced that the person you are with is “the one.”

When you are dating, you will still meet people along the way that you may have curiosity about and you may hold on to the contact, yet not entertain or pursue out of respect to your current relationship.  This contact-in-waiting can become a problem during weak moments in a current relationship.  There is a strong possibility that whatever you may be lacking and yearning for in your relationship, such as: a voluntary act of love; consistent phone calls; or thoughts of affirmation, can be gained from the eager contact-in-waiting.
