Approaching Women with the Right Body Language

Most the Online Dating and Personals industry sites provide a space for their members to post a photo and write a little narrative about their likes and dislikes. It is a fact that single ads with a picture command a 70 percent response over singles who don't post a photograph. A relatively new feature is to allow single daters to upload an audio clip along with their photo.

Club 555 Online Video Dating

Since the invention of videotape video dating services have been offering video introductory clips for prospective singles. The concept was that you would visit the service's studio where you could have a video of yourself recorded and added to a library of introductory videotapes. While there at the service you could view video clips of other singles at a television and if you found someone interesting you could set up a date. Broadband service and faster, more powerful computers have changed the face of video dating while making it easier and more accessible.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/club-555/azPU/~4/198805564" height="1" width="1"/>

Tips for Kindling Romance

Remember when you first met, how just being near him gave you butterflies in your stomach and each time he dropped you off at home you couldn't wait until you could hear his voice again? You'd wait for 10 minutes, 15minutes, or maybe 20 then call him to make sure he got home safely. Then over the next couple of hours you would talk about nothing and everything. It didn't really matter what was said it was just comforting to hear each other's voice- the sound of his voice to carry you into the next day where you would make plans to see each other again.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/club-555/azPU/~4/198805563" height="1" width="1"/>

Learn How to Kiss a Women Back Home

Being a great kisser isn’t a skill you’re born into. I’ve yet to meet a guy who gave the first woman he ever kissed an great kiss. Learning how to kiss in such a way that her whole body feels a rush is something that’s developed over time and experience. Some of the most important points I’ve learned over the years are the timing of the initial kiss, reading out the way she wants to be kissed, and kissing her in a way that feels sexually charged.
The initial kiss is an important point in any interaction. The first kiss tells her a lot about you: How relaxed with her are you? How confident do you feel with her? How comfortable are you with your desires? Based on how you kiss, she’ll even come up with ideas on how you are in bed.
On top of that, the initial kiss also sets a tone for the rest of the relationship. Did the kiss feel tense and robotic? Or did the kiss feel passionate and warm? The initial kiss is her first impression of what sensual touching with you is like, and like all first impressions they color the rest of the interaction. While you’re first exploring how to kiss, there are two main lessons to get regarding the first kiss: Kiss her as early as possible, and to create as much chemistry as you can. (Which we’ll go over in a moment.)
Kissing her sooner rather than later generates a more spontaneous feel. The longer you wait, the more it feels like a “dating process”, rather than being in an interaction where the two of you are just interested in each other. Making the move early also sets the pace for a faster and more passionate interaction. How soon you kiss her affects how quickly the rest of the interaction will follow.
Another powerful point in improving in how to kiss is the art of reading out how she wants to be kissed. Each woman has a fantasy in her mind that defines what her ideal kiss is - Some like a wet tongue down, some women like a gentle and passionate kiss, while others prefer to be pushed against a wall and feel completely controlled by the man she’s with.
One large part of becoming better at how to kiss is learning her style of kissing and granting her exactly that. Once you can do this correctly, you’ll start getting women who give you compliments like “That was so good - You’re one of the best kissers I’ve ever met!”
Finally, develop to skill of being able to create a sexually charged moment when you kiss her. Women fantasize all day about the moment when their heart stops beating, their skin is flushed, and everyone within five steps can feel that charged energy. A big part of becoming better at how to kiss with that sensual energy is about you conveying your desire for her, without words.
These three tips we just went over are just the tip of the iceberg in learning how to kiss. Other skills, like creating variety in the relationship, making her feel warm and cared for, and several others are also skills that come into play for you to give a girl a great kiss.

Five Tips to Becoming a Better Listener

One of the biggest challenges facing couples is the way in which they communicate. Simply put, that’s because men and women communicate differently. It’s not until you learn to bridge the communication gap that you’ll get beyond that barrier and create a stronger bond with your partner.
Essential to bridging the gap in communication is learning to become a better listener. The following five listening tips will help you in this quest:
1) Think about the words that your partner is speaking.A lot of times it’s easy for a person’s mind to wander when someone else is talking. Many times, instead of listening, a person is thinking about what they are going to say next! It’s essential to get beyond this by actually thinking about the words your partner is saying.
2) Repeat words back in the form of a response.One of the best training techniques for becoming a better listener is to repeat phrases back. For example, if your partner says, “I had a very rough day at work, the phone was ringing non-stop” then you can respond, “I’m sorry your day was so rough.” Your partner knows you were listening because in your response, you repeated something he/she had said.
3) Eliminate distractions.Hopefully you own a TIVO for this tip! If your partner starts to talk with you, learn to eliminate any distractions so that you can better listen. For example, if you are watching TV, pause it (thus the TIVO) until your partner is done and you have responded accordingly. You want to provide your undivided attention to your partner so that you can properly think about the words he/she is saying and repeat them back in the form of a response.
4) Look the person in the eyes.When listening to someone, look them in the eyes. This helps you focus while letting them know you are listening.
5) Ask questions.A person feels they are important when you ask followup questions based on what they’ve been talking about. For example, if your partner says, “a group of us workers went to that new Italian restaurant for lunch,” then a good followup questions is, “so how was the food there?” Asking followup up questions makes you a better listener (since you have to listen to ask the question) and makes your partner more impressed with you since you have more of an interest in what he/she is saying.

Best Places to Meet Singles?

Where is the best place to meet other singles?

Get out there and start dating!

If you're single and have had difficulty in the past meeting other singles you are not alone. The obvious meeting places may not be the best places to meet single people unless you are only looking for a one-night stand. Bars and other meat markets may be a great place to meet someone for a discrete encounter but rarely do these meetings between singles ever develop beyond that encounter.

Events for Active Singles:
If you are an active single you may consider an event-based service. There are several matchmaker services that sponsor hiking, bicycling, rafting, and other activities as a way to spend time with other single people. These methods are a great way to spend time with other singles.

Speed Dating:
Speed dating has grown in popularity in recent years as a safe and fun way to meet single people. This type of matchmaker service spawns a good selection of potential dates. People that you meet in a Speed Dating event are from your city and state. Most event planners attempt to group singles by demographics such as age, sexual orientation, and social background.

Online Dating and Online Matchmaker services:
Online dating services and online matchmaker services provide a further extension of those safe methods of meeting other single people. Some online dating services offer off-line venues such as the ones mentioned above. Combining event-sponsored activities, speed dating and online methods of meeting like-minded singles is the best mixture for being successful in your dating pursuits. Take advantage of all the services available for singles. Avoid the pitfalls of blind dates, and one night stands. Your best online dating services will offer dating and matchmaking beyond the online experience so select a service which offers more than a profile and a picture.

Club 555 A Few Ways to Show Them You Love Them

Dating is exciting for both singles. You're busy meeting new people and exploring a lot of new firsts together. Your relationship begins as a list of firsts; first trip to an amusement park together, first kiss, first hiking trip, first road trip, first overnight vacation, and the list grows. At some point the newness will begin to wear off.

Club 555 Do Nice Guys Really Finish Last?

Nice has the word "ice" in it and that's how she's going to feel toward you if you come off all nice and squishy. That is the fastest way to become a "friend" instead of a lover. Nice guys listen up because what we are about to clue you in on might change your dating life forever. Nature is an amazing force. All the animals in nature look for the strongest and most attractive mate to breed with. This assures the survival of the species by breeding out the weakest genes. This is the way that it is supposed to work so we don't want to reinvent the wheel but we do want to take advantage of what nature predicts the way that the female will react.

Jurors convict man in triple murder Lexington HeraldLeader

Jurors in Clark County on Wednesday convicted a man of killing an Evansville woman and her two daughters while he was high on methamphetamine. Jurors deliberated less than two hours before finding year old Daniel Ray Wilkes guilty on three counts of murder. The jury was set to begin considering Thursday whether the Vincennes man should be sentenced to death. Wilkes was charged in the April deaths of year old Donna Claspell and her daughters Avery Pike and Sydne Claspell . The three victims were found slain in their Evansville home. Autopsies determined that Donna Claspell died from multiple blows to the head and cuts to the neck Avery was strangled and Sydne also died from blows to the head. Wilkes had said Claspell was letting him stay at her house after they spent time in an addiction recovery program. Prosecutors on Monday played a recording of interviews Wilkes gave to media at the Vanderburgh County Jail after his arrest. He said he killed the family but didn t remember details or why he did it. Wilkes said in a taped confession that he was high on meth on the night of the killings and Donna Claspell gave him Xanax and alcohol so he could sleep. A psychologist who testified for the defense this week said someone under the influence of those drugs would be unlikely to remember anything that happened. But Vanderburgh County Prosecutor Stan Levco argued that Indiana law states a person cannot be absolved of guilt due to intoxication. Wilkes lowered his head and nodded up and down twice after the third guilty verdict was read Wednesday. He declined comment to reporters as he was led out of the Clark County Courthouse by deputies. Family members of the victims wept silently inside the courtroom after the crowd dissipated. Levco said he did not know whether jurors would recommend the death penalty for Wilkes. He said he did not plan to call any witnesses during the penalty phase of the trial. Defense attorney Barbara Williams said she plans to call at least six witnesses and added that they would be convincing. We have a lot of people coming in and I think their stories will be compelling she said. The penalty phase is expected to last until at least Friday. Williams had fought unsuccessfully to have taped interviews between Wilkes and police and media kept out of the trial. She argued police used improper tactics in obtaining Wilkes confession. The defense also argued that someone else committed the murders. The case was moved from Vanderburgh County to Jeffersonville about miles away.

Wilkes The jury is expected to begin deliberations today in the case. UPDATE JEFFERSONVILLE Ind. A Clark County Ind. jury is now deliberating in the case of year old Daniel Ray Wilkes. If convicted in the April murders of Evansville mother Donna Claspell and her daughters Avery Pike and Sydne Claspell Wilkes faces the possibility of the death penalty. Throughout the case Wilkes defense team has argued that investigators failed to perform a thorough investigation of an initial suspect in the case Michael Baker. They also argued that police used improper tactics in gaining Wilkes confession. During closing arguments Vanderburgh County Chief Trial Deputy Donita Farr said Wilkes motive for the slayings was child molestation. Prosecutors previously argued that Donna Claspell caught Wilkes molesting Avery Pike and that became the motive for the murders. Farr called the defense strategy in the case the S.O.D.D.I. defense or some other dude did it she explained. That is the defense here she said. Farr said that while defense attorneys said Baker committed the murders prosecutors provided plenty of evidence proving otherwise. She recalled testimony confirming that Baker contacted police immediately upon learning of the murders and that he was wanted for questioning. She also detailed the thoroughness of the investigation into Baker by police. Farr said police searched his home his ex wife s trailer impounded and searched Baker s car drew blood samples from Baker and questioned Baker s friends and relatives. He was looked into she said. Farr cited testimony from Baker s ex wife that he was at home sleeping at the time of the murders as proof he could not have committed them. Phone records confirmed that his ex wife called him at his Evansville home early the morning of April . In the weeks leading up to the murders Wilkes had been staying at Claspell s home. A video taken from a gas station showed Wilkes and Sydne Claspell the morning of April . Investigators have said the murders were committed that night or early the next morning. In the video Wilkes is wearing clothes later found at the crime scene with blood and DNA evidence that prosecutors said linked him to the victims. Also Farr reminded jurors that neighbors of Donna Claspell testified during the trial that Wilkes was the last person seen leaving the home before the bodies were discovered on April . Other evidence Farr cited included a fingerprint matching Wilkes found on the interior door knob of Claspell s bedroom. The door was locked from the inside which Vanderburgh County Prosecutor Stan Levco later said was proof in itself that Wilkes was the killer. That door was locked from the inside when police arrived at the home days later. Defense attorney Kurt Schnepper told jurors he s served as both prosecutor and defense attorney in murder cases but this one will haunt him This is by far the most disturbing difficult and actually haunting case I ve had he said. I would not want to have to make this decision. Schnepper said he and defense attorney Barbara Williams are not certain who committed the murders. We have no detailed narrative no information about what exactly took place he said. We do know that three innocent people were murdered. Schnepper told jurors that from the beginning of the investigation into Michael Baker everything police did was tainted. His first statement was offered in the back of a police car with Ryan James a man who would later become part of his alibi Schnepper said. Schnepper said Baker had a motive to carry out the murders. Michael Baker provided meth to every party involved and but for meth this crime may not have occurred he said. Schnepper told jurors to ask why there was no recording of Baker s statement to police and why other items he deemed important evidence were missing. Schnepper said Baker s motive for murdering Claspell could have been that he had a romantic relationship with her and feared she might tell his wife. Schnepper recalled testimony that Baker was unemployed at the time. Donna Claspell threatened to contact police and his wife about their relationship and meth Schnepper said explaining that a divorce would likely have led Baker to be homeless and if police found out about he and his son s meth use they faced a lengthy jail sentence. He had a lot at stake Schnepper said of Baker. Defense attorney Barbara Williams called the case a rush to judgement and pointed out that within hours of the bodies being discovered the case was essentially solved. That was important because the community wants to know a murderer is caught she said. But by p.m. on April this investigation was over. No more questions were asked. Williams called the police interrogation of Wilkes a failure and went on to say Wilkes never provided any details about the crime. Vanderburgh County Prosecutor Stan Levco got the last word in the case. He provided jurors with his own top ten list of why Michael Baker didn t do it. He ran through many of the reasons Farr had previously stated ending with his number one reason Wilkes did it he said. Levco told jurors the case had been hard fought. But in the final analysis this is not a difficult case to decide he said then asked jurors to return a verdict of guilty. The jury began deliberating at p.m. eastern time. A verdict will be posted here when it is available. PREVIOUSLY JEFFERSONVILLE Ind. Daniel Ray Wilkes defense attorneys have now rested their case. Defense attorneys called two witnesses to testify this morning then wrapped up their case at a.m. eastern time. Closing arguments will begin shortly and then jurors will begin deliberations. Dr. Robert D. Smith a clinical psychologist and certified addiction specialist from Ohio was the second witness to testify for the defense this morning. Jurors have previously learned that on the April the night or eve of the murders of Donna Claspell Avery Pike and Sydne Claspell Wilkes has said he was on methamphetamine had drank tequila and taken Xanax. He told investigators that Donna Claspell gave him the Xanax to help him sleep because he d been up for days due to meth use. Smith said someone who d taken meth and alcohol would be significantly impaired. When someone consumes those substances they are changing the chemical makeup of the brain and that can change they way they act Smith said. He said the combination of Xanax and alcohol would multiply the impact of each depressant. A person would become very likely to be become unconscious he said. Smith said someone under the cocktail of drugs Wilkes took that night could wake up but would be likely to be in a blackout stat where they would later have no memory of their activities during that time period. When someone is blacked out could they be in a physical fight with someone but not remember defense attorney Barbara Williams asked. Absolutely Smith replied. Vanderburgh County Prosecutor Stan Levco said that in Indiana the law states a person cannot be absolved of guilt due to intoxication. Jurors previously heard taped confessions where Wilkes repeatedly said he either did not remember the murders or did not want to remember what had happened. His defense attorneys have argued those confessions were obtained improperly and on Monday they called an expert who said he felt investigators had coerced Wilkes confessions and caused him to believe he committed the murders despite his statements he had no memory of it. PREVIOUSLY JEFFERSONVILLE Ind. Jurors will be asked today to decide the fate of Daniel Ray Wilkes.

The woman had been spotted sleeping through much of Thursday s testimony in the case. Court officials said that was not why she was excused but they declined to explain. Defense attorneys plan to call at least two more witnesses today before closing arguments. If Wilkes is convicted jurors will reconvene for a penalty phase of the trial. At the end of that phase they would decide whether to recommend the death penalty. On Tuesday the courtroom was nearly empty as three reporters a relative and a friend of the victims defense team assistants and several court officials observed nearly five hours of testimony from defense expert Richard Leo who specializes in police interrogation techniques and false confessions. He is a professor of law at the University of San Francisco. Under questioning from prosecutors Leo said he charges an hour. He said he submitted a bill in August to Wilkes defense team for about . That bill did not include any time he has spent working on the case since then or his travel expenses and hours for testifying Tuesday. Leo told jurors that after reviewing the tapes and transcripts of Wilkes reported confessions he felt those statements may have been obtained improperly. Leo said it is his belief that the detectives who questioned Wilkes gave him information about the murders eventually convincing Wilkes he was the killer. If someone tells you they don t remember committing a crime you don t tell them they committed a crime Leo said referring to parts of Wilkes statements in which he says he does not remember the slayings. In some number of false confessions research has shown some people come to believe they ve committed a crime Leo said. Leo went on to describe the two types of false confessions Cases where a suspect admits to the crime to satisfy the investigator and cases where the suspect internalizes the information he is hearing and comes to believe he committed the crime despite having no memory of it. Leo said after reviewing the transcripts and watching the nearly five hour video of Wilkes interview with police he found there are a number of places where Wilkes says he doesn t remember. He contended that police who interviewed Wilkes provided information about the crime that had not been made public and that was the only way Wilkes was able to provide details about the murders. Defense attorneys have said physical evidence nothing more than that Wilkes was living in the home in the days before the murders. Would you say confessions are strong evidence of guilt defense attorney Barbara Williams asked. Only if they are corroborated Leo said. People tend to presume if someone confessed they must be guilty. A confession is only great evidence if it is corroborated. If not no. Vanderburgh County Prosecutor Stan Levco spent most of Tuesday afternoon cross examining Leo. He reminded Leo of his testimony stating that in order to deem a confession valid Leo would prefer that the suspect independently provide corroborating details about the crime or have DNA evidence linking him to the crime. Jurors previously viewed a video from a gas station taken April showing Wilkes and Sydne Claspell. In the video Wilkes is wearing a red shirt and a blue baseball cap. A forensic expert testified on Monday of testing swabs taken from that shirt and hat which were both found at the crime scene. Forensic analyst Susan Laine said Wilkes DNA was on the shirt along with Donna and Sydne Claspell s blood. On the hat analysts found Wilkes DNA and Donna Claspell s blood she said. Levco also pointed out multiple examples of instances where he believed Wilkes was providing information to detectives they had not told him. Among those details was a statement Wilkes reportedly volunteered to Evansville Police Department detective Ron Brown on May . Do you feel any of the DNA corroborates Wilkes incriminating statements Levco asked. I don t think it is a yes or no answer Leo said. That would be simplistic and misleading. On their face yes they tend to corroborate but I would want to look closer . . . to see if they do corroborate. How many things does he have to come up with on his own before a false confession becomes a true confession Levco asked. Stumble If convicted in the April murders of Evansville mother Donna Claspell and her daughters Avery Pike and Sydne Claspell Wilkes faces the possibility of the death penalty.

Illicit Drug Use Down Teens Turn To Prescriptions WCBSTV New York

The latest youth trend is quite a disturbing one according to a new report Teens increasingly putting down the marijuana and other illicit drugs and replacing them with prescription drugs to get their high. Knowledge of what the drugs are used for and how to use them for recreational purposes is becoming commonplace across the nation despite the President s aggressive campaign on the teenage war on drugs. President Bush sited a new study revealing a decrease in illegal drug use among teens but more striking are the findings suggesting a dramatic increase in the use of prescription drugs. We of course don t see the improvement we only see the problem and we see a lot of the problem said Doctor David Deitch of the Phoenix House Foundation. According to Deitch part B of the equation needs to take center stage. Teenagers he says are switching to prescriptions as a result of accessibility and convenience a natural effect of a national epidemic that is still widely discreet. The youth of America on the receiving end of an endless source of information is exposed to the often aggressive advertisement campaigns of pharmaceutical companies all jostling for control of one of the world s most lucrative industries. Some doctors believe the issue comes from these companies advertising the many wonderful benefits of their drugs and providing the youth with ample ways to address their needs for their drugs to the prescription writing physicians. CBS hit the streets to find out just how much teenagers know about misusing prescription drugs. According to an unidentified New York City student everything from Ritalin Xanax and Vicodin passes from hand to hand. They get painkillers prescribed to treat illnesses and refill them over and over again and pass them out to friends said Holly Nelson a high school student in New York. Since they probably can t find ways to get drugs they probably find real drugs that they can buy so that they can get high said Brian Pasian of New York. According to the Phoenix House the younger the child gets hooked the harder it is to break the cycle leading them eventually to harder drugs. The treatment center also believes teen rehab resources are under funded by the local state and federal government.

However it was in that home under the care of his father that the year old died. His father Michael Miller now stands accused of killing him. ADVERTISEMENT Miller who is a heavyset man says he was putting up Christmas decorations Friday afternoon when he fell on top of the child. But the Iberia Parish Sheriff s Office investigated the case and arrested him Saturday morning for second degree murder. A bond has been set for Miller. The nature of Dylan s injuries and his death are expected to be released today following an autopsy and forensic examination by the Iberia Parish Coroner s Office. The Louisiana Department of Social Services will be cooperating in the investigation. Cleo Joffrion Allen press secretary for the DSS said the department has been involved with Dylan and his mother Hayley Louviere since March . Allen said Louviere s three children were placed in foster care in July . Hayley said it was because she had failed two drug tests following what she called unfounded allegations that she had neglected her children. Later Allen continued We became involved with the father when he first came to our attention as a potential placement for his son in August . The father has had custody since July . Since then the Louviere family has filed two complaints against Miller Allen said. The first was in mid November from the mother. Allen said the Office of Community Service was in the process of investigating an allegation of neglect and to date had found no indication of either abuse or neglect. The second allegation came on the day of the child s death just minutes before the call came in. Allen said Dylan s mother came into the office for another reason and while she was there she told the worker she had observed bruises on Dylan. We were in the process of the intake report when we were called to the scene he said. Since that moment Hayley and her mom Myra Colson have been vocal about how OCS handled the entire situation from removing the children to how they placed Dylan. Hayley Louviere said she was trying to right her wrongs. She lost custody of her three kids after she failed two drug tests for Xanax and marijuana following allegations that she was neglecting her children. That was the hardest part of my life when I lost my kids she said. Afterward she said she fell in with a bad crowd and got into more trouble. She went to jail for about seven months and went into the th Judicial District Drug Court and says she remained clean throughout. But they said that apparently was not good enough to get her kids back. Instead they said OCS opted to put Dylan into a home with a man who cared little for Dylan and who was quick to abuse him. But Allen said the department deals in facts and had found no indication of wrongdoing within Miller s home. We are heartsick when any child is hurt Allen said. Our primary focus is always the safety and well being of the child. Post a Comment View All Comments When I got through half the story I already knew it was going to be a case of drug use. I have a wild theory. The drugs Xanax Lortabs oxycontin and a few others were specifically designed by the drug companies to try and get a piece of the black market drug business. They sat in the board room and were going over the figures that showed Americans use billion dollars of illegal drugs a year. So they designed a drug that would be extremely appealing. One that would be very addicting one that would be affordable. The outcome was Xanax and Lortabs. Ask the Coroner of Iberia Parish how many overdose deaths he has seen in the last few years. he ll tell you it has tripled. The new drug dealer is not on the corner or lurking in the back alley. he s got a store front and open to the public. There is a quiet epidemic out there. The new drug dealer is a retired and on social security. In Acadiana there are over old folks who get a prescription for Lortabs painkiller and sell their pills for times the actual cost. How do I know this I am aware of about or so in this small town. So between all the towns in Acadiana that should amount to about . No I don t use the product. I employ a few guys who live on the shady side of town and they tell me all about the latest trends. Posted by porkbrains on Tue Dec am The whole situation is terribly sad . Born to irresponsible parents and the child is left to suffer . Hopefully the other two children are in a good home far away . Posted by Pamda on Tue Dec am I m agree SAD but the blame starts at the beginning of birth. It s sad that little Dylan will never grow up to show other children that just because you come from an abusing home does not mean that you can make the cycle stop. And teach other families how to have a healthy and loving family without abuse. Posted by dailyreader on Tue Dec am What should have happened is the offender should be taken to the court house steps and publicly beat to death. Oh I forgot we are too civilized God bless the child and all the surviving children in similar situations. Posted by retcop on Tue Dec am Sorry the blame starts when the mother failed drug tests and lost her kids Not just Dylan but two others as well Where are those children now Posted by nispikers on Tue Dec am Post a Comment View All Comments Originally published December Print this article Email this to a friend Subscribe Now Zoom Photo Submitted photo Dylan Louviere is seen in this photo submitted by his family with his sisters Alyssa Baudoin and Britany Louviere .

Online Internet Dating Advice and Services

Internet dating is a fairly recent phenomenon and one that is either presented to you very professionally by worldwide dating agencies or by local hacks who are jumping on the dating bandwagon. In every industry there are the cheap and cheerful options, but where affairs of the heart are concerned, Internet dating is best selected carefully.

As single people increase in numbers as a percentage of society so two industries have sprung up around us, those who try and find out why so many people are single and those who try and bring single people together. Our sister site LoveBrowser.com has been very successful over the years in bringing people together and it is such professional agencies like this that can help bring fun, romance and success back into our dating lives.

Internet dating is best selected from the top few agencies. It is not a case of selecting those who spam you with hundreds of emails, or have banners plastered all over the Internet with photos of models posing as glossy couples. They may well look good but of course, Internet dating time is better spent with quality agencies who know the subject they are dealing with.

For women, the key thing is to go for an Internet dating site that is keen to promote safe dating for women. Very few do this and that is because they are after making money and don't spend too much time on thinking about what women want to feel when logged in providing personal details to strangers. Currently we are working on a scheme to provide a safe dating for women award which will allow you to spot the best dating sites on the web. Watch this space.

Romance online can be fun, quick and simple, but often ignored as a strange pastime by our condescending couple-ish friends. The fact is that it is generally very safe, secure and fun if you use a professional agency. After all , their business is to help people find love and romance.

Here are some key things you should always keep in mind when attempting to use the Internet for romance.

Use a professional introduction agency, one that has been established for at least 3 years
Use an Internet dating specialist firm, not some free extra which is an afterthought on many sites
Use a dating agency that allows free profile registration for all members
Use an online service that allows you to post more than one photo for free
Use an Internet dating services agency that has a secure ecommerce system backed by a major bank
Do not use completely free agencies as you often don't get top quality services because they are expensive to run
Do find an online agency that offers email and messaging that are onsite
Do provide your correct mailing address when registering to receive the best facilities
Don't use agencies that insist on sending emails to your own home email inbox from site members
The best Internet dating specialists offer you great customer service, look for online help
Use an agency that is appealing and relaxed and suits your style
Don't go for agencies that pay for glossy adverts to catch your eye, they are not always the best
Look for online agencies that provide detailed dating articles and advice
Make sure that the online agency includes their full address and phone number
International websites usually have the best variety of member profiles
Find an Internet dating agency that is willing to chat about any issues you may have
Use an agency that offers different methods of secure payment
Some of the best dating agencies allow payment in different currencies
It is essential that you can Browse & Find profiles for free
Make sure that the search facilities are fast and suit your style of searching
Use an Internet dating agency that has been around since at least 2000 as they will be properly established.

Top 10 Most Romantic Songs

When considering our top ten romantic songs of all time the first thing that one things of is exactly how subjective this is. We all associate music with certain moments of out lives and where romantic music is concerned then it is even more subjective. One person may have deep romantic thoughts and happy memories when listening to Metallica whilst another may be provoked into tears by The Beatles. It depends on what we were listening to at the time something happened to us. Personally on of my most haunting romantic melodies is The Unforgettable Fire by U2 but we would be here all day if I was to explain why. The fact is, there are some songs that simply appeal to the romantic ear of the masses and it is these that I list here. Once again, you may have your own list and it is certainly as valid as this.

For people who are dating, music takes on a whole new meaning. We take out or our old favorites and remind ourselves of the music that makes us feel romantic. Romantic songs heighten our feelings, our moods, our sense of romance. Just like movies love songs are often imbued with a sense of sadness but none of us can denounce how important music is in our attitudes to love. Some of the best modern songs are written about love, dating and romance, it is the subject that inspires us to song the most.

One of the inspirations behind this list of top romantic songs was when I was recently watching Ali McBeal episodes. The series brought back and linked romantic classic music tracks to emotional scenarios and I have to thank the TV series makers for having the foresight to rediscover so many old music masters. Barry White didn't quite save my life, but Al Green may now be high on my music agenda. Well done guys.

Go and get your old CDs out and give some of these tracks or similar. Remind yourself of exactly how good some of these tracks are. In fact, why not get round your love don, or if you are single, just yourself and try and rediscover your very favorite romantic tracks. I will list my favorite lists here on a future occasion. Happy listening:


My Heart Will Go On - Celine Dion

Gosh you may hate this but it is a masterpiece of romantic melodies with the rousing crescendo towards the end. Who wouldn't want to stand at the front of a ship with arms outstretched. Whilst now the subject of parody in some areas, it still brings a lump to our throat. Ask yourself would you die for your girl ? She'd like to think you would...

Wonderful Tonight - Eric Clapton

An ode to your loved one and sung with heartfelt honesty by Mr. Clapton. The beauty of this song is in its romantic simplicity. A song about being proud to be with someone, a song of compliments and a song of love, you can't do better than this for classic romantic sentiment.

Don't Want to Miss a Thing - Aerosmith

Indeed I don't and neither do you which is why this song is such a romantic masterpiece. The gladiator of romantic modern classics in fact. Steven Tyler in full throttle, rousing lyrics and chorus and superb video to boot. The sentiment is there, the voice the attitude and even the opening few words are class "I could stay awake just to hear you breathing...". Get playing it now.

Wicked Game - Chris Isaac

It took me about 30 listens and views of the video before I grasped the true meaning of this song. Probably due to my own stupidity. Once grasped however it climbed up my all time top 10. Essentially a song constructed from different tenses about the affect a woman has on the male singer from was to is now. What a wicked thing this woman does to Chris who sings like a bird. It helped enormously that Helena Christensen was Mr. Isaacs partner in both life and video at the time of release and only helps heighten its meaning. Gorgeous.

No Ordinary Love - Sade

Sade always did have that kind of seductive voice that made you want to get naked. It was for no small reason that her voice was the sound of the entire wine bar sophistication of the mid 1980's. Often sadly now associated with a movie about selling your body for $1 million, the song should be better remembered not for the Robert Redford & Demi Moore film it accompanied, or the dreadful Sade video of a lonely mermaid, but for the soft undertones of the melody, the lilting tones of the song, the sadness, and the sheer romance of its lyrics. A beautiful song superbly scripted and one to make your heart melt, yearn and stretch. Moving.

We've Only Just Begun - The Carpenters

Cheesy and corny? Absolutely not, a romantic masterpiece without equal. If you haven't played this in some time just listen to Karen's voice. It is like listening to perfection, like chocolate, like silk, with inflection and emotion. My silly words here cannot do this song justice, it just needs to be placed. A romantic all time classic, even more so when related to Karen's own tragic demise one month short of her 33rd birthday.

Wishing on a Star - Rose Royce

This song appears in many a top ten list from its initial ear-piercing opening to the drop in tone as we move into melodic verse to refrain. The sentiment of the song is beautiful and captures in an instant the essence of what romance should be. A modern work of art and there was no way I was leaving this out.

Sexual Healing - Marvin Gaye

Original, sexy and very very soave, this is music to make love by. What makes this song so romantic and so sexy is the way Mr. Gaye trapped every word and made us swallow it like oysters with champagne. Its late in the evening, the meal was excellent, she is sitting in front of the fire looking exquisite, what are you waiting for men? There could have been a mini baby boom down to this song.

The Day Before You Came - ABBA

I have always had a real soft spot for ABBA and this has remained unchanged over the last 25 years. A super group of true stature and without parallel in terms of music craftsmanship - song after song. It comes as a surprise therefore to some that I select this particular melody for this list. The fact is, the song deals with some extraordinarily powerful emotions and romantic ideas over its 6 minutes of so in length. Essentially Agnetha is telling us a story in retrospect about a relationship from beginning to end by telling with huge irony what her day was like before you walked through the door. Spine tingling and beautiful and the video is great too.

Me and Mrs. Jones - Al Green

Smooch music, kissing music, velvety notes, deep luscious tones, laid back lyrics. Who knows. The point is that this is Soul from the soul - maybe food for the soul if I want to use clichés. It's smooth, it's sexy it's an afternoon away from work with your sexy lover. Its romantic, it's slightly naughty and it makes us feel good. So good it made it into this top 10.

Your task now is to go and make your own list and rediscover some romance in your CD collection. If you want to send me your list and the reasons why I may well publish it here.

Dating Rules For Men

You are a guy who knows how to date, you are a guy who hasn't dated in years, you are a guy who has never been successful with women. Whatever your situation there are some common dating rules to follow when venturing into the dating jungle. These rules are simply to protect your emotional state and to ensure even handed success. Women are trained from day one in the art of dating warfare. They have a physical and emotional arsenal that you may never hope to match. But don't be outgunned, be prepared my friends as the dating battle isn't over yet buddy.

1. Look your best. Get some decent clothes and shoes. Women always look at your shoes even if the last time you checked your Nike's out was 1996. Get clothes that fit you, suit you and are contemporary. Don't just buy one outfit, sort out your entire wardrobe. If you can't take care of yourself, how are you going to take care of her? Oh yes and buy a good well tailored suit, there is no excuse not to.

2. Get your hygiene and styling sorted out. Down to the barbers and sort out your hair, get a decent style if possible. If you don't have much hair still get down to the salon and either get your head shaved or something you can handle. Then it is off to the shops with you for good quality cologne and a grooming kit. Yes that means some expense. Men are so often criticized for smelling bad. Get into a regular showering routine and smell good always. Women appreciate it.

3. Sort out your job if you have one. Women want a man who has some ambition in life so coasting along as a skateboard instructor is generally not going to win you a real catch (by the way I love skateboarding!). Any job is better than none, but knuckle down and sort out some direction in your life. Change job if need be but at least try and look like you you have something of a career. If you have a manual job, at least have some plans to work for yourself. If you already do, then you are on the right track but know what you are about work wise and have some idea of your future because they will be asking questions about your prospects even if they pretend it isn't important. It is.

4. Get your knowledge levels up. Make sure you are up to date with current affairs, watch the news and read quality papers. Women do not appreciate stupidity and laziness is no excuse either. Current affairs are important in showing you know all about the world outside. If you travel a lot then this will help tremendously, if you don't have plans to travel, get some. Being able and willing to sort out vacations is essential in the grand scheme of things.

5. Do not extol the virtues of drinking in the bar 5 nights a week. This will never win any fair princess's heart. If you love your booze sort yourself out as there are other things in life too. Taking your lady for a drink is fine, but give them the impression that you live in there will get you absolutely nowhere - fast.

6. If you love your sport then fine,. If sport is a religion you may have a problem but everything by degrees guys. If you are serious about dating then ramming the subject of soccer, ball games or football down your date's throat will put them off in record time. Sport to the uninitiated is completely boring and shows not only sheep mentality to a woman but lack of thought, creativity or inspiration. Millions of girls love sport too and that is fine but don't make your passion into a one-sided one.

9. Never expect sex on a first date. If all you are after is sex you have come to the wrong place for reading material. If you are looking for the girl of your dreams there is nothing more sexy than a patient man. You are easily capable of waiting for the right woman so do it instead of thinking with your balls.

10. Sort out your educational knowledge of manners, courtesy and chivalry. A woman likes being treated well, particularly with respect. Lose the coarse language, the swear words, the rudeness and the laziness. Know how to eat in a top restaurant, know about fashion and jewelry and in particular flowers. Know how to hold a door open for a woman, let her go first and help her with her seat. Listen to what she says but have opinions of your own too. Show her respect and manners at every step and you should not go wrong.

11. Start listening and stop talking. Keep your date interested but don't turn into a one man entertainer. She will bore of you quickly because she wants to talk about herself too. Listen to things she tells you about her and remember them. Women love to chat so you need to learn to listen to her. Remembering things she told you will impress her by the bucketful. Fact.

12. Give up smoking now.

13. Lean to dance even if you have two left flat feet. Women love to dance and dancing is a physical contact sport (or can be). It is also romantic and sexy. You can be the world's worst dancer, I don't care. But if you stay seated when she is on that dance floor you may as well not exist. If you can join Salsa and dancing classes all the better. You don't need to be Travolta but you should have an idea of the basics of rhythm. Get started today.

10 Dating Tips

I thought I would bring you the top 10 dating tips I have gathered along the way in the hope of assisting and enlightening those who need assistance. If you are new to the dating scene, a regular or just simply someone trying to meet someone new there should always be time for top dating tips, advice, information and things to consider. None of us are dating experts otherwise we would have a magic formula to present to others. And no, looks are not the magic formula otherwise all supermodels would be blissfully happy - which they are not my friend. Good looking people the world over struggle when it comes to affairs of the heart. Think of all the major figures in history who have fallen in matters of romance.

The truth is, there are no magic formulas, no perfect tricks of the trade, no cunning ways of trapping Mr. or Miss Right and no top dating tips that wave a magic wand. But there are some essential facts that you should always bear in mind along the way. Dating tips are just that - tips, they are not promises written in stone and different things will always work differently for different people. However, I have noticed that there are some threads of advice that keep cropping up and therefore it is worth reiterating my top 10 tips here.

My Top 10 Dating Tips

Get prepared for dating. If you really want to succeed in the dating game, decide who you are looking for, do your research and be ready to commit to dating. Half heartedness won't work. Also prepare for some let downs along the way but don't take dating too seriously either.

Get your act together. Begin a regime of looking your best. Join a gym, read health magazines, get fit and start a diet. Get your hair cut or styled and begin a new regime of good grooming or beauty treatment. Though it will not find you a date in itself, you will feel a million times more confident about yourself.

Go shopping and treat yourself to new clothes and even a whole new look. Get your image right, one that you can manage and live with, but one that flatters you. Don't go overboard and look like someone you are not but maybe its time to throw out those tired jeans, old sweaters or cardigans and spruce yourself up. People appreciate appearance.

Have a good think about what your dating goals are and timescales. Do you see yourself married within 2 years? If you do then approach dating accordingly. If you are more laid back and don't take dating too seriously then ask yourself some honest questions about why you are dating and what you hope to achieve. If it is purely sex then ask yourself if you are about to be honest with those you hope to date.

Sort out your confidence levels in advance. By following the first four tips you will feel better and be more focused. Do all the things that will boost your confidence from avoiding negative friends (often the married ones) to attending the right kind of social functions. Couples at dinner parties in suburbia is not necessarily where you need to be right now.

Choose those you have a good chance of dating, don't aim low but do aim realistically. In other words, your dating is based on the whole package you present as well as just your personality. If you are looking for a glamour girl or boy and want to date someone trendy and gorgeous then good for you, but be prepared and be realistic about your chances.

Work out in advance where in your neighborhood you are likely to meet people and join clubs, societies, sports events, drama groups, anything where you are likely to meet potential partners. The kind of partners you are looking for. I know its a cliché but you will not meet people by staying indoors.

Take time off from dating occasionally if its not going well or causing dating fatigue. Dating is an ongoing process and so recharging the batteries and keeping the confidence and optimism levels high is an absolute must. So date in phases if necessary.

Enjoy dating for what it is, dating. It is meeting people and socializing and spending time in the company of stimulating individuals who may or may not bring you a sparkle. The fact is, most people are interesting and whilst you may not be out there looking for new friends, you may well find one or two fabulous people along the way.

Never ever make yourself too available. People like mystery and enigma and the thrill of the chase when dating. In keeping with this do not sleep with your dates early on if you want them to progress, so keep sex until later. The longer a person is made to chase and fall for you within reason, the more likely that love may blossom. Peak too early and you have little left to offer and emotions may never have had the time to develop.
