More Than Beauty: 5 Things Guys Like About A Girl Besides Her Looks

What do mem want? Does anyone really know? Most women think that men want someone beautiful. This is why they spend hours working on their appearance, picking out the perfect outfit and doing their makeup. While men do look at beautiful women, looks aren't the only thing that matter to them. There are several other things that matter to men when they're looking for a woman to date. Read on to find out five things guys like about a girl besides her looks:

1. Brains

A lot of women think you need to play dumb to get a man, but that's so not the case. Show them how smart you are! Men appreciate a woman's intelligence. They like when they can have a substantial conversation with a woman. They like a woman who is cultured and well-educated, not someone who acts ignorant.

2. Confidence

Confidence is one of the sexiest things about a person. No one likes someone who is insecure and desperate. Men want to see a woman who is confident and knows her worth. They like women who have high self-esteem and will not settle for less than they deserve.

3. Happiness

Nobody likes a “Debbie Downer”! Happiness is contagious and attractive. It draws people towards you. This is why men love women who are happy. They do not like women who are miserable and complain all the time. A woman is negative and complains all the time will only bring down anyone who is with her.

4. Sense of Humor

A sense of humor is one of the top things guys like about a girl. A girl who can laugh and make fun of herself is a girl that people want to spend time with. If a girl can never laugh at herself and takes everything seriously, she is going to be awful to be in a relationship. This is why men love when a woman has a sense of humor.

5. Kindness

Kindness is one of the key things that guys like about a girl. Women who are kind to those around them are the most attractive. Always be nice to those who can do nothing for you. It shows that you have a kind nature and care about the feelings of others. If you are mean and nasty to other people, it will surely send any man running!

He’s Just Not That Into You: 7 Signs A Guy Isn’t Interested In You

Dating and relationships can be hard to decipher. We often struggle to figure out whether or not someone is interested in us. How can you tell if someone really likes you or not? It turns out there are some signs that show a guy is just not that into you. Read on to find out seven signs a guy isn't interested in you:

1. He Never Contacts You

If you're initiating all of the conversations, he's just not that into you. If a guy likes you, he'll call you, text you, contact you on social media, etc. If he's not doing any of these things, then he's not interested.

2. He Doesn't Listen To You

A definite sign that a guy isn't interested is if he doesn't listen to anything you say. If you've been hanging out for a few weeks and he still doesn't know basic things about you, it's because he doesn't care (or he has short term memory loss…). So if you're on the third date, and he asks you for the tenth time where you went to high school…yeah, he hasn't been listening.

3. He Sends Mixed Signals

If a guy keeps sending you mixed signals. consider him uninterested. When a guy likes you, he'll make it clear. If he's all over you one day and then ignores you for a week, he's putting you on the backburner. When he's sending you mixed signals, it's because he's keeping you around for his convenience.

4. He Flirts With Other Women

This one should be obvious, ladies. A guy isn't interested if he is blatantly flirting with other women. Sure, some guys just have flirtatious personalities. However, if he purposely flirts with other women in the hopes of hooking up with them, he's not interested in you.

5. He Doesn't Respect You

If a guy is not respectful to you, he definitely does not like you. When a guy is interested, he will treat you nicely. If he's disregarding you and treating you like dirt, it's because that's what he thinks of you.

6. He Doesn't Make Time For You

Everyone has busy lives, but if a guy likes you, he'll make time for you. If he constantly has excuses for why he's not hanging out with you, it's because he doesn't want to. A guy isn't interested in you if he's not making you a priority.

7. He Keeps You A Secret

This is a huge sign that a guy isn't interested. If you've been hanging out with you for a while and his friends and family have no idea you exist, this is an issue. When he's keeping you a secret, it's because he's not interested in something serious with you.

Guy Isn't Interested


Forever Alone: 8 Possible Reasons You’re Still Single

Have you found yourself “forever alone”? Do you wonder why you haven't been in a relationship for a long time? We may have your answer! Check out eight possible reasons you're still single:

1. You're Too Picky

Having a type is acceptable. Having certain standards is reasonable. However, if your type resembles a Hollywood movie star, it's not likely you're going to meet someone who fits in that category. If your standards are unachievable, you'll never meet someone. If you are too picky and set your expectations too high, you're going to be single a long time.

2. You're Not Putting In The Effort

Finding the right person requires some effort. You need to work on yourself before you can expect anyone to want to be with you. if you're walking around like a slob, people will see that you just don't care to put in the effort. Take pride in yourself and clean yourself up. Otherwise, don't be surprised when you're still single a long time from now.

3. You're Holding On To Anger

If you want to be in a healthy relationship, you need to let go of any anger you hold against old flames. If you're still upset over previous relationships, it will be impossible to find love with someone new. If you're bitter over someone who wronged you, it could be the reason you're still single.

4. You Don't Treat Other People Well

Let's face it: Maybe you're just a jerk. The reason you're still single might be the way you treat people. If you don't treat the people in your life well, you can't expect anyone to want to be around you. Try to take a step back and see if you are treating your friends and family with respect and compassion.

5. You Aren't Putting Yourself Out There

If you never leave the house, it could be the reason you're still single. You need to put yourself out there if you want to find someone. Find some hobbies or things to do that might help you meet someone. If you only hang out at home, you're going to remain single.

6. You Give Too Much

Dating and relationships require balance. If you are over-zealous in a relationship, it might be why you're still single. If you call someone constantly or want to spend every second with them, you're going to drive them crazy. No one wants to be with someone who is super clingy.

7. You Give Too Little

Like we said, dating and relationships require balance. You don't want to do too much, but you also don't want to do too little. If you act like you don't care, people will believe that you don't care. You need to show someone you are interested, but not so much that you scare them away.

8. You're Not Confident

This might be the biggest reason you're still single. If you have low self-esteem, that will be obvious to the people around you. Confidence is attractive, The more confident you are, the more people will want to be around you. Be sure of who you are and have confidence.

What A Guy Wants: 6 Dating Tips For Women From Men

Sometimes we all need a little help when it comes to relationships. There's no definitive way to know what's right or wrong when it comes to dating. With that said, a good way to get some insight is to find out what others think is okay and what is an absolute deal breaker. Women often struggle to figure out what men want, and the best way to find out is to ask men! To help you ladies out, we've got some dating tips for women from men.

1. Play It Simple

This is one of the easiest dating tips for women, because it requires doing less work. Guys like when you keep things simple. You don't have to go all-out for a date. You can keep things totally casual. Men actually prefer a casual date over a fancy date in an expensive restaurant.

2. Don't Assume You're Exclusive

When you've only been dating someone for a short time, never assume that you're exclusive. If you want to be exclusive, it needs to be explicitly said. Never assume that you and a new guy are on the same page unless you have a conversation about it. If you never say that you want to be exclusive, it's only going to lead to hurtful misunderstandings.

3. Keep Contact To A Minimum

One of the most important dating tips for women is to not overload someone with contact. Don't call him all the time. Don't text him constantly. Give him some space. If he wants to talk, he'll contact you. If you're incessantly calling, you're only going to annoy him and drive him far, far away.

4. Don't Hookup On the First Date

There's some debate surrounding this tip. Obviously most guys will want to hook up with you on the first date…but you still shouldn't do it. A lot of guys still have old-school ideas about girls that have sex on the first date. For these guys, a girl who does this is not girlfriend material. So, if you want to have a second date, it's better to just not hookup on the first one.

5. Recognize That All Men Are Different

A major tip is to remember that all men are different. If you've been burned by a guy in the past, don't hold it against any guys you date in the future. Don't expect your new beau to make the same mistakes your last one did. If you judge your new guy by how awful your old guy was, it's never going to work.

6. Be Yourself

Most importantly, always be yourself. Don't waste your energy trying to be someone you are not. If a guy doesn't like the person you are, then he's not the right guy for you. If you present yourself honestly and authentically, things will work out better for you in the long run.

Moving Forward: 4 Signs You’re Ready For A New Relationship

We all know that breakups can be rough. Some breakups are so bad that they make you want to ward off relationships forever. We think it's important for you to take time after a breakup and make sure you're ready for a new relationship. During this time, you might feel down and out, wondering when you'll ever love again. It turns out there are certain signs that show you're finally done mourning your failed romance. Check out these four signs that show you're ready for a new relationship:

1. You Have No Bad Blood With Your Exes

A huge sign that you're ready for a new relationship is if you are at peace with your old relationships. You cannot move forward if you still harbor hate or resentment for an ex. These feelings will only permeate into any new relationships and destroy them. So, you know that you're ready for a new relationship if you have forgiven your exes for any wrongdoing and you have no bad blood between you.

2. You Can Picture Yourself With Other People

You'll know that you're ready for a new relationship when you can imagine yourself in a new relationship. If you can picture yourself with a new person, it's a sign that you have moved on from your previous relationship. It also shows that you're excited by the prospect of starting something new with someone else.

3. You're Fully Confident

If your previous relationship ended badly, it might have left your confidence shattered. You need to rebuild your self-esteem before you can even think about starting a new relationship. If you are fully confident with yourself and your self-esteem is peak, it's a sign that you're ready for a new relationship.

4. You Have Mastered Independence

One of the biggest signs that you're ready for a new relationship is if you have mastered independence. There are many people who jump from relationship to relationship without taking time to see how they function on their own. Being independent for some time will show you who you want to be and how you want to live. Once you have spent time on your own and figured these things out, you will know you're ready for a new relationship.

Whether it be obsessing over your memories together or stalking them on Facebook, you cannot let yourself be preoccupied with your ex. We understand that moving on can be difficult, so we've got a few tips to get you started. Check out six great ways to move on from your ex:

1. Cut Off All Contact

The first step to move on from your ex is to cut off all contact with them. Don't call them. Don't text them. Delete them from your social media accounts. Staying in touch with your ex will make it impossible to drop your feelings for them. If you really want to get over them, you need to avoid them.

2. Spend Time With Friends and Family

A great way to get your mind off your ex is by spending time with your friends and family. Go out with your friends. Have dinner with your family. Spending time with people who care about you will help boost your self esteem and make you feel better about moving forward.

3. Start A New Hobby

A huge part of moving on is letting go of old memories. If you want to move on from your ex, you need to avoid obsessing over the memories you share. Don't look at old photo albums. Don't listen to their favorite song on repeat for hours. Avoid all the things that remind you of them. We're not saying you have to throw out old pictures or gifts they gave you. You just need to avoid them until you are sure you've moved on.

6. Meet New People

The best way to move on from your ex is to meet new people. We understand you may not be ready to start dating again, and you don't have to date anyone. You can just get out there and meet new people to hang out with. You don't need to dive into anything serious. Just hanging out with new people will show you that there are plenty of other fish in the sea and before you know it, you'll forget all about your ex.

The Loneliest Day of the Year: 5 Ways to Celebrate Valentines Day If You’re Single

Valentines Day is supposed to be the most romantic day of the year. Millions of people around the world spend Valentines Day having nice dates with their partners and exchanging gifts. While it's a special day for couples, what do all the single people out there do on Valentines Day? Do you wallow in loneliness? Do you celebrate your single life with others who aren't in a relationship? Do you just ignore the whole day altogether? If you're single this year, we've got five ways for you to celebrate Valentines Day. Check them out here:

1. Indulge Yourself With A Spa Day

A perfect way to celebrate Valentines Day is to indulge yourself at the spa. A spa day can be a great method of self-care and can definitely take your mind off being lonely. Get a massage, a facial, a pedicure, etc. You'll leave the spa feeling fresh and relaxed, and you'll probably have forgotten all about Valentines Day!

2. Party With Your Single Friends

Don't wallow in your loneliness on Valentines Day! Instead, gather up any other single friends you have and go out for the night. Ignore that the holiday is for couples. Who says it has to be? Celebrate with your friends instead! Odds are, you'll have a way better time going out with your friends than you would going to some fancy dinner with a boyfriend or girlfriend.

3. Binge Watch Your Favorite TV Shows/Movies

What better way to celebrate Valentines Day than staying in for the night and spending time with your favorite fictional characters? Make yourself a nice dinner, cozy up on the couch and binge watch your favorite TV shows or movies. Or maybe you want to dive into an all-new series. Either way, engrossing yourself in TV and movies is a great way to forget you're alone on Valentines Day (just avoid the rom-coms.)

4. Treat Yourself To A Shopping Spree

You probably spend the entire year refraining from indulgent shopping. We suggest you throw that idea out the window for Valentines Day. Go ahead and treat yourself! Spend the day at the mall getting yourself whatever you want. While everyone else has a partner getting them gifts for the holiday, be your own partner and get yourself gifts. At least you'll get exactly what you want!

5. Don't.

You read that right: Just don't. Don't celebrate Valentines Day at all. There is no unwritten rule that says you have to celebrate any holiday. It's a totally reasonable option to ignore Valentines Day altogether. Just treat it like any other regular day. Go about your usual business. Go to work/school. Come up, take care of things at your house. Make yourself dinner and watch some television. Before you know it, it will be February 15th.
