Essential Morning After Tips for Women

by Online Dating on March 18, 2011

The Walk of ShameSo last night was filled with lots of booze and men — but ended with one in particular. You’ve just woken up next to him and you may or may not recognize him as well as you’d like. What to do? This tends to be an awkward situation, whether you’ve met this guy before or just went on your first date. If this happens to you a lot or not, these tips will help you get through your next “morning after.”

Take Cues From Him

It’s just so awkward being in a situation where you really don’t know what to do once you wake up. It depends on a few things:

  • If you’re at his place: Take a cue from him. If he’s already getting dressed quietly, then it’s time to exit.
  • If you’re at his place and he’s lying next to you awake, or has handed you one of his shirts to lounge around in, then it’s appropriate to take your time — just don’t overstay your welcome.
  • If you’re at his place and you’re having a “WTF did I do?” moment, then you should just leave.
  • If he’s at your place and you want him to leave, say that you have plans (meeting friends, gym, whatever) and begin getting dressed. He’ll get the idea.
  • If he’s at your place and you want him to stay, just see what he does. You can offer him some coffee or a bagel to gauge his feelings.

There are definitely horror stories about first-time meetings with parents, and movies like Meet the Parents don’t help. It can be a nerve-racking experience, but it’s not too often that your date’s parents will go out of their way to make you uncomfortable. Do some research and take these 7 easy tips to heart before taking that next step to meet the parents.


It’s all about the timing when you meet the parents. Discuss what it means to your partner — for some people, meeting their parents is no big deal, and for others it’s huge. Either way, you should assess how serious you are in the relationship because no matter how your partner feels, his/her parents will notice whether you’re sincere or not.


Prepare for your visit! Ask your partner questions about his/her parents. Getting some background information will help to make conversation. Also, find out who you’ll be meeting, and what to call them. It could be awkward if you’re trying to make conversation and you don’t know what to call your date’s mom — “Mrs. Smith” or “Mary?” If there are any special customs that your boy/girlfriend’s parents follow, be sure to ask questions about those, too.

How to Spring Clean Your Relationship

by Online Dating on March 15, 2011

Just like the flowers in a garden, a healthy relationship requires regular upkeep. Just like your house, a healthy relationship requires a good cleaning every spring! Spring cleaning your relationship shouldn’t serve as a disposal, but rather a renewal and preservation of all things positive. Here are 5 ways to effectively spring clean your relationship.

Take stock of what you have

Since it’s springtime, it’s the perfect time to take stock of your relationship, and assess the mess, so to say. Ask yourself a few questions:

  • Are there any wounds that need to be taken care of before you move on?
  • What bad habits do you both have that create rocky situations?
  • Are you — and your partner — committed to maintaining the relationship?
  • What can you do to help the relationship blossom?
