Your Successful Personal Ad Must Focus on What You Can Give
As editor of a singles magazine for 26 years plus, I received a letter recently from a middle aged single man who said he had been featured in several singles magazines and personals columns all over the country and had not yet received a satisfactory response to his personal ad. Somehow the single women just would not give his personal ad a second look.
When I looked at his personal ad, I saw the problem. He had listed everything he wanted from a woman "attractive, slim, intelligent, good cook" and my favorite "she must be financially secure." Yet he had not mentioned any of the benefits he was willing or able to give her, except his lovely, self-centered self.
No one is attracted to an ad that lists all the qualifications the other person must measure up to. Focus on selling yourself and your good qualities in your ad. Ask yourself, what do I have to offer another human being that would make him or her want me? How could I make the life of another person better?
How Many Pushups Can You Do?
The push-up is the all-American exercise. Too bad most Americans would have a hard time cranking out a single repetition, let alone the number they should be able to do for their age.
It's time to start re-gaining your upper-body strength. And in a challenge I put together for Men's Health Magazine last summer, I set the bar very high. Here, for example, are the numbers I gave for men under the age of 45 to determine their level of fitness:
(For a woman, cut the number of repetitions by 60 percent. So, to get an "average" fitness score, a woman under the age of 45 would need to be able to do at least 12 pushups.)
If you are a beginner, start with kneeling push-ups to build strength. Do one set of 5-10 reps today, and add one set every other day until you are able to do three sets of 10 kneeling push-ups.
Ten Ways to Teach Your Child to Be Kind
Kids do what you do, not what you say. Cruel adults usually begin their patterns of abuse as children with brutality to animals. Parents have an opportunity to instill kind behavior in their children by teaching the importance of a respectful relationship with people, pets and the planet. Protection and kindness are learned behaviors that parents can pass down to their children and grandchildren. Here are a few basics that can help teach a young child to be kind.
1. Let Sleeping Birds Lie
We have all seen the photo of a young child running on the beach with a flock of birds startled into the air. "Wings of Hope" and the Collier Audubon society say, "Never force birds to fly. If you see birds on a beach, walk around them quietly. They are resting!" Tiptoe past the birds and tell your child the birds are sleeping. Act disappointed if you see other children disturbing the birds. Never disturb the baby turtle nests.
If you are looking for ways to 'jump' and STAY out of the friend zone, and you want that one special girl you've always wanted but can't seem to get to suddenly "feel it" and develop romantic feelings for you, watch these videos.
You'll uncover the nitty gritty details of turning a friend over to be your lover:
From start to finish, it tackles the issue straight on, no fluff, no filler, just to-the-point good, quality content and I must say, the techniques here are very well organized, well planned and executed for the perfect learning experience.
Why does it work? Simply because it plays straight towards a woman's soft spots and it leverages on female psychological triggers.
There's nothing trickier, more fragile than turning a friend to a lover, and if you want to get it 'just right' and land that one girl you've always wanted, I HIGHLY recommend you check this out!
