Many people think Canada and United States are very similar when it comes to customs but actually, the two can be totally different under certain circumstances. It’s true that Canada has approximately the same business hours as the U.S. – 9 to 5 – but some of their other practices are much different. For example, when writing dates, we usually write the month, day and year, whereas Canadians write the day, then month, then year. This is a minor adjustment for most business people.
Online dating can be an enjoyable activity but some rules do exist, for your safety at least. Arriving at decisions based on mere emotional impulse may either lead you to a magical fairy tale happy ending or a tragic romantic demise. The rules are pretty simple. It is pure common sense. You do not need to hire a professional consultant or adviser because our instinct for caution is always there. A few reminders wouldn’t hurt. They’ll come in handy when you need it.
Part of avoiding this sense of desperation is the need for you to uphold the life you’ve always had before him. Don’t start canceling your dance class or neglecting your friends in order to have more free time for him. He can get by without you once in a while and you should definitely be able to get by without him. If you can’t, you need to look into this because it can become a major problem in your relationship.
Even if your relationship was completely drama-filled, chances are that sexual chemistry still exists (unless attraction was an issue). This is a recipe for disaster. Why? Well, every time you get together under the new “friendship” premise, emotions and passion that remain dormant have the potential to explode into one more night of “memories” for old time sake. That brings you back to square one – hurt, confused, unsure and unhappy. Just when you were doing so well.
If you can maintain a show of mystery, you’ll seem more exciting. Any woman who actually wants to be seduced will appreciate some fun and if you reveal all about yourself then you leave her nothing to discover, and when I say discover I don’t mean the 20 children you had in 10 years to 15 different women! I mean facets of your personality that she would really like to see with a touch of old fashioned Dream Girls. Small gestures that reveal just a tiny part of you; whether it’s a little bit of ‘chivalry’ every now and again – a gentle kiss on her hand when she’s expecting more, or sending her flowers with a sexy message inside when you know she is dining with girlfriends. You want to appear as the man a lot of women would want.
Choose scents carefully and avoid wearing them in business meetings, for the most part. Strong scents are not acceptable for an office setting and in some places, such as many doctor’s offices, are prohibited.
8/5/11- The Honda Civic Tour kicks off at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, NJ. I saw Blink play here with No Doubt years ago in support of the untitled album. Blink never sounded so good. Hopefully they can replicate that experience.
If children are involved, that’s a different story. It’s really important that you two find a balance between friendship and mutual respect so that your children can live the life they deserve and not have to think twice about inviting both parents to a school function. It’s also important that you both don’t use your responsibilities as a parent to prevent you both from moving on and finding happiness again. I recommend that every single parent visit a life coach to ensure that you have an entire team behind you for this new chapter in your life.
