Adding a bit of spice to your daily routine

hot girl taking a showerWhen you’ve been in a relationship for a while the initial dating aspect can disappear if you don’t make a point of keeping it alive.

Ensuring that you do keep dating is obviously an important aspect of that but don’t neglect the smaller things as well.

Make sure you invite your man into the shower now and again. Yeah, it’s a hassle sometimes, but wouldn’t you rather that he had that image of you in the shower during the day?

Don’t slip off into the bathroom to get ready for bed. Give him a little striptease instead.

And I’m sure you can think of a whole bunch of other little things to keep his mind on you :)

The attraction of women to chocolate

sexy woman covered in chocolateThese days a lot of it is to do with the marketing by the chocolate companies, hence the mass of those little heart shaped chocolates that you will have seen around Valentine’s Day.

However, there are also chemical reasons behind the attraction of chocolate. It’s a sweet and we are all attracted to sugary things for a start. However, it also contains triggers for your endorphins (the “feel good” chemicals) which other sweets don’t. Finally, specifically for the women it contains phenylethylamine which is related to chemicals peaking during orgasm.

Despite all that, in reality it’s the massive promotional effort on the part of the chocolate companies which is the main driving force in shifting the mountain of chocolates that are in the shops these days.

Brazilian, bikini or no waxing?

woman with brazilian waxThe first decision is to wax or not to wax?

Plus points are that guys prefer it if they’re going down on you, it’s cooler in the summer and there’s the hygiene angle too. On the downside is the pain involved, embarrassment and prickly feeling afterwards.

If you decide on it, the choices range from bikini (basically removing hair that would poke out from your bikini so there are normal and string bikini versions), Candibox (a custom design), variations on Brazilian (removing all but a thin strip of hair) and Hollywood (all hair is removed). Aside from the normal bikini, hair is removed from both front and back.

When deciding on where to go to have this done, ask around rather than just plumping for the first place you see. Once you’ve decided on a place, make sure that your hair is between 1/4 and 1/2 inch (too short and the wax won’t catch, too long and you’re looking at serious pain: trim beforehand if needbe). It’s a good idea to apply a numbing cream and take a painkiller before your appointment. If it’s your first time, there’s no avoiding the feeling of embarrassment as obviously the technician will need the vital areas uncovered. Finally, don’t forget to apply the lotion that you’ll be given after your treatment.

What should you do on a first date?

scared womanTypically the suggestions will basically boil down to dinner and a movie or something along those lines.

Other alternatives can come to mind if you’ve met via some activity. So, for example if you’ve come in contact through exercise classes perhaps a short cycling tour around the area might be suggested.

In fact, if the guy likes you a lot and is really clever what he should suggest is something that scares you a little. No so much that you won’t go at all obviously, but rather something that makes you distinctly nervous (about the activity, not about the guy obviously). This is because it will make you feel that he is more attractive. Sounds crazy, I know, but it’s been tested out by psychologists and it does work.

So, if your potential date suggests some activity that frightens you a little, now you know why he’s thought of it.

Self-maintenance for a date

hot woman having a bathYou’ve thought about your make-up, chosen the underwear, picked out the shoes and have a nice dress lined up so next up is your personal maintenance.

There are a number of aspects to this obviously:

  1. Guys expect guys to be smooth so that means shaving your legs and arm pits. Waxing is even better and lasts longer.
  2. Wash your hair for those times when he’s running his hands through it.
  3. Have a bath or shower so you smell fresh.
  4. Think about perfume. Light rather than heavy duty is the way to go. Don’t forget that really laying on the perfume can be very off-putting: better to aim for that fresh smelling scent than perfume by the gallon.
  5. Clean your teeth and think about a mint to freshen up your breath.

And that’s about it. All minor points but neglecting any one of them can be off-putting on a date.
