Couple's Time: Dating


It is hubby's birthday today but I have not prepared anything special yet. He got so busy with work that we never get to have couple's time anymore. No more dating. Quite disappointing indeed. But, I make it a point to initiate intimate talks, cuddles and even invitation to at least go out together as a couple. It has been a while since the last time we went on a date. I was never an envious person but feel a little envy for those who  really take time to set time for their partners. Alright, it's his birthday and I shouldn't be feeling this way. I will make it a point to cook spaghetti or Carbonara instead. The latter has become his favorite and I am proud that it's because of my recipe. =)

Anyways, I have a friend who is now happily dating someone she met. He was introduced by their common friend. I am happy for her now that she's find herself someone to be with. She's searched for companionship for sometime and have experienced heartaches and gone through the dramas of it too. When she was back to her feet and composed, she's tried online dating but didn't succeed. I was one of those who reminded her that love is not something you have to chase, for it will come in its perfect timing. I truly wish that perfect time for her is now and the perfect guy is him.


Speaking of online dating site, I have never really explored the sites available out there simply because I am not seeking for myself at all. I have even heard and read that there are sites that offer dating for parents. I just realized that it is true that when the advent of online dating came, it somehow became a phenomenon. Some find their special someone in the comfort of their home, online! There are pros and cons of course just like in everything. One of the benefits is time saving. Instead of having to meet and go out with a dozen of people, you will be able to browse and peruse profiles from the dating site in just a matter of few clicks. Since you get to choose whose profiles to go through and review, you also get to pick who to chat with or talk to. Another good thing about it is you get to connect or be with the people that shares the same interests you have. It somehow makes meeting people a lot easier. Some can also be choosy about who you date like this year Xfactor winners Little Mix. Besides, one can stay anonymous until you find who really interests you.

Along with these positive sides of dating sites comes the negative side too. There could be more cons than the pros actually.

* First, men can always lie about their marital status. Since a person can be anonymous, you really cannot tell whether the information given in someone's profile is the truth.
* Some online dating sites would require you to shell out a good amount of money before you can even reply to a profile.
* It promotes in an indirect way of antisocial behavior because you aren't physically together to build a healthy social relationship. You do everything inside the walls of your home.
* You are bound to risk meeting a possible weirdo, pervert or someone dangerous. To avoid this, one should be strictly careful.

So, whether you would like to try online dating or not, being cautious is still very important. This post may have not enumerated everything to know about online dating sites but I am hoping that I was able to impart something for you to think about. Just remember - "All that glitters is not gold".

Now, let me go ahead. I'll have to park the mouse and rest the keyboard... will start to prepare for my own date. =)

having a happy couple life= happy family.... you should make it a point that you two are happy together...the happiness is converted into confidence by the kids...they become secure with their family.

The day has just started and we can always do something to the one we love. Choosing a partner is more difficult kaysa sa pagpili ng damit or a pair of shoes. Sa panahon kac ngaun d mo alam kung totoo ba yong sinasabi noong isa, sure lang doon kung ano nararamdaman mo. Hirap talagang makapamili ng taong "other half" mo sabi nga nila. Some would involve to online dating na minsan mapapasubo kang pakasal para maiahon ang pamilya. Minsan pa nga may mga manloloko at may mga nagpapaloko naman. But I guess in choosing a partner we should ask His guidance. Instead of dating just anyone we should pray that He will prepare and guide the person we are about to marry na mapalapit sa Kanya.

I have some friends who say that dating sites are full of people looking for sex not love.

And I have others who met their wives/husbands that way.

It really is just the luck of the draw.

Nice post and quite inspiring. Does anyone know a love that doesn't focus on physical attraction? I guess it's hard to believe but true, there is more to that actions.

some say, nothing beats the physical component of things, but for me its the essence that counts first. online dating can be a great tool in strengthening one's relationship.

You can also find good things in online dating, the definite thing is you should really be careful and be aware of everything you do or vice versa. Anyway some failed to do that and end up miserable, others found love in whatever options it will take you.
