An Introvert Woman’s Guide to Dating

Contrary to popular belief, not all women are born as social butterflies with the overwhelming guts to walk up on a guy and start a conversation. Truth is, some of us prefer to keep things to ourselves, and this is the reason why most men often think that we’re just so full of our self, or that we’re not that interested on them. So to level the playing field of dating between introverted and extroverted women, we’ve put down a simple guide on how the shy girls can score in the romance department.


1.       Give Off the Right Vibe. If you’re out with your girls and trying to attract a potential suitor, then do make yourself more approachable by changing up your body language. As much as possible, avoid constantly checking your phone or crossing your arms as it will only make you look like you’re bored or uninterested. Instead, sit up straight, survey the guys around you and don’t look so closed off to the rest of the room. That way, you’ll look more open and available for conversation.

2.       Think of Several Conversation Starters. While you may be capable of starting a conversation, there would really be times when your nerves can make your mind go blank. A good way to prevent this is to think of several go-to topics that you can serve as your conversation starter during your actual date. Preventing awkward pauses will also help in keeping you from looking incapable of socializing and insecure.

3.       Choose a Familiar Place for Your Date. Being in an unfamiliar environment is another thing that can cause you to have trouble in opening up. Remedy this by going to a place where you feel most comfortable and where you’re able to be yourself, such as your favourite coffee shop or bistro. You may not know it, but your environment can actually have a huge effect on your behaviour.


4.       Use Your Shyness to Your Advantage. Having a timid nature doesn’t have to be a character flaw. In fact, your rather reserved demeanour can come off as sexy and mysterious to some guys. While you wouldn’t want to keep him completely in the dark, keep him guessing enough to lure him in.

5.       Show That You’re Interested.  While men should do 90 percent of the work in dating, you should also play your part and contribute to the remaining 10 percent. Give him some clear signs that you’re also interested in him, such as wanting to hang around every now and then. Remember, being shy doesn’t exempt you from the 90-10 dating rule.

6.       Be Honest. If there’s one thing you should never ever do when dating, that would be pretending to be something that you’re not. Let your guy know that you’re a bit shy so that he won’t see your timid nature as a sign of disinterest. Just ensure that you explain everything with confidence so that it won’t be seen as a character flaw.

For an introverted woman, dating can be a very stressful event. But keep in mind that it’s not enough reason to change yourself just to find a guy who’ll accept your timid nature. Remember, you are who you are, and if you’re an introvert, be proud of that.


How Microbiome Shape Attraction

We will be surprised that attraction transcends to more than charm, good looks and intelligence. According to research, microbes (which is known collectively as microbiome) play a role in attraction and possibly love. We have to know that our body is home to more than one hundred trillion of microbes.


The truth is, microbes outnumber human cells in the body. Recently, researchers are looking into these organisms and how they affect immune system and the human metabolism. According to Dr. William Miller, these microbes have effects on sexual attraction.

We do not realize this yet but microbiomes play a significant role in attraction. There was a study concluded in November 2014. The study involved Dutch scientists and they discovered that couples have common microbial communities found in their mouths. The scientists also revealed that a ten-second kiss can transmit up to millions of bacteria in the mouth.


Researchers asked about the couple’s kissing habits and swabbed the mouths of the couples to conclude their bacterial makeup. The research showed that the more the couples kissed, the more alike their microbial communities are. In addition to their research, the scientists also discovered that the bacteria in the tongues of the couple are alike than their saliva.

What does this say? This says that in the near future we may be looking unto dating profiles with microbial composition. Whatever the future holds, the couples are better finding it for themselves. There are indeed hidden and unknown forces that govern sexual attraction. We have to accept that and let the nature takes its course.


What to Do when the Precious Wedding Ring is Lost

Couples one important belonging is their wedding rings. The tradition is to wear it as a sign of love to each other and as an indication that they are married. Most men in many countries wear their wedding rings but there are also men who don’t wear it for security reasons and girls do not want it.


Men could be cheating if they do not want to wear it but on the brighter side, they do not wear it because they are afraid that it will be lost. It up for the partners decision if it should be worn or not. Nonetheless, the most important is to secure it whatever happens.


It is very unusual yet   frightening if you lost your wedding ring. It’s like you do not know what to do. This is one thing that you should avoid. You do not have to panic. Once you panic, you will hard a hard time to think of anything and your chance of seeing your wedding ring will decrease. Thus, you should remain calm and whatever happens keep your composure.
