What are the Benefits of Dating

During adolescence, some adolescence begin to date. Dating is a social plans with another person, some refer to having a date as "going out" or "hanging out" with someone. Here are some benefits of adolescence dating.

  • Strengthening self esteem. Being liked and accepted by members of the opposite sex is especially important during adolescence. Asking someone to share an activity and having this person accept affirms an adolescent's belief about his or her attractiveness and desirability. Being seen with a person of the opposite sex who is well liked by peers also reinforces self esteem. Successful dating experiences provide the foundation for continuing to take risks in the dating game. In other words, when adolescents feel that a date was successful, they gain confidence that they are successfully managing their social life.
  • Improve social skills. Adolescents often have concerns about the social skills needed for dating. "What do I talk about with my date?" "What do I do if I can't think of what to say?" Dating provides the opportunity to practice social skills. Some of these skills might include meeting someone's parent or guardians for the first time, mutually deciding on enjoyable activities, initiating and contributing to meaningful conversation, and using good manners.
  • Becoming secure win one's masculinity of femininity. Two important developmental tasks of adolescence are accepting the body changes that are occurring as a result of puberty and becoming comfortable with one's sex role. The issue of masculinity and femininity is especially important. Males need opportunity to test their feelings about the masculine sex role. Is it masculine to be macho? To be vulnerable? Females need the opportunity to test their feelings about the feminine role. Is it feminine to be strong willed? To be independent? An adolescents comfort level with his or her masculinity or femininity is reinforces by being able to express several aspects of his or her personality, being able to have a wide variety of interest, and gaining acceptance.
  • Developing skills in intimacy. Healthful relationships are about closeness. This closeness is referred to as intimacy. A lack of intimacy in important relationships such as those between close friends, marriage partners, and parents and their children can be very painful for everyone involved. Almost everyone has had the experience of being with a friend or being in a crowd yet still feeling lonely. Lack on intimacy can lead can lead to feelings of alienation and unworthiness. The skills needed to have intimate relationships must be practiced. A sense of trust and caring and compassion are particular importance to the development of intimacy. While dating, adolescents have the opportunity to display trust and to interact in caring and compassionate ways.
  • Understanding personal needs. In a healthful relationship, people have an understanding of each others needs and desire to meet those needs in healthful ways. Therefore, it is essential for adolescents to be in touch with their needs and to be able to share those needs in appropriate ways with significant others. While dating, adolescents can learn ways to have needs met in healthful ways. In addition, they can learn about the needs that other people have and hoe these needs can be met in a healthful ways. For example, some adolescent need to have more time alone than others. Some adolescents need more encouragement in the form of compliments to feel supported in a significant relationship.

What are the Risk of Dating

Here's one interesting article I found, well dating should be fun, but did you know there are also risk in dating? Listed below are some risk when it comes to dating.
  • Rejection. Adolescents are especially sensitive in rejection. Feeling left out by peers can be devastating. When a social activity is planned, whether it is a group activity or a one to one dating activity, and an adolescent is not included, he or she might question his or her self worth. It is extremely important to encourage adolescents to share these feelings with caring adults. Feelings of rejection can result in a loss of self esteem.
  • Sex-role stereotyping. Ideally, the dating experience will assist adolescents in becoming comfortable with their masculinity or femininity and their sex roles. However, it must be remembered that an adolescent has obtained previous information about masculinity and femininity almost entirely from his or her family. Adolescents tend to model the examples that have been set for them. Adolescents who have learned sex role stereotyping might continue attitudes and the accompanying behaviors in their dating relationships. Thus, while one person is learning to express his or her masculinity or femininity and sex role, the other person might be providing unhealthy feedback. When this occurs, adolescents should be encouraged to discuss the situation with trusted adults.
  • Superficial relationships. Because peer acceptance is so important, adolescents might go through the motions of dating to be a part of the group rather than to obtain the benefits of dating. For example, an adolescent might date someone only because he or she is in a popular clique. This kind of relationship is superficial. Neither the quality of the relationship nor the well being of the other person involved is a priority. Some destructive behaviors might accompany superficial relationships. These behaviors might include leading someone on in order to continue dating, lying about feelings, and/or failing to pay attention to the other person's needs. If an adolescents obtains the desired benefit-acceptance from the peer group-he or she might receive enough satisfaction from superficial relationships that a pattern for this kind of relationship develops.

Nice Money Saving Tips When Eating Out

Eating in your house and cooking for yourself and your love one would greatly save you money. But its also nice to go out with your family or your love one and treat them to a restaurant from time to time. Here are some tips on how you can do that without breaking your budget.

  • Go for lunch specials. Lunch specials are usually cheaper than dinners, and breakfasts are even more so. Always ask for the daily special as it can often be a good deal.
  • New restaurant. Keep an eye out for newspaper ads regarding new restaurants. Often a restaurant that has just opened for business will want to attract new customers with discount and freebies.
  • Drink water. You go to a restaurant for the good food, not for the drinks. You can get those for much cheaper at a grocery store. Drink water instead.
  • Just order side items. A salad and an appetizer can often make for a delicious but affordable meal for one.
  • Don't order two dinners. If you go to a restaurant with your partner, order one dinner and an appetizer and split it. Many restaurants usually serve way too much, which is costly and unhealthy if you finish it.

Using Hand Massage to Relieve Stress

We are always face with stress in our lives, whether you like it or not. Stress at home and work, although there are some activities which we can do to lessen stress, some of it cannot be done in our workplace. But there is one solution, you can perform hand exercise routines that you can do while sitting in your office cube. Here are some hand exercise to help you relieve stress.

  • Take a dab of lotion or massage oil and slowly work it through your hands. Give special attention to the folds between the fingers, the ball like muscles beneath the thumb, the wrists, and the tip of the fingers. Once you have lavished the lotion or oil on your skin, run your right thumb repeatedly at the muscles comprising the base of the fingers of your other hand. Do this for 10 to 20 counts before doing the same with your other palm.
  • Link your fingers together, like you were praying (elbows bent). Push inwards, keeping you palms several inches from your chest. Elevate your elbows to shoulder level. Hold this position for 10 counts and then release.
  • Push your right arm forward with palm flexed upward. Take your left palm and gently pull back your right palm toward your body. Do this gently for 5 counts. Make sure that you are doing this exercise without causing pain, and only until you feel your muscles stretched but not strained. Release for 5 counts, and do this again for 5 to 10 repetitions. Do the same on the left arm.
  • Press palms together in front of your chest. Fingers should be extended and space apart. Elbows must be either at shoulder level or parallel to the floor. Push hard on both palms until you feel your forearms straining. Hold this position for 10 counts and release for 5 counts. Twenty reps should help ease the symptoms of stress on your shoulder.
  • Stretched your fingers by opening them widely and slowly making a fist, one finger at a time. It does not matter if you want to start with the thumb or the little finger as long as you let the fingers stretch while making a fist. You can do this one palm at a time or both palms at the same time. In between the stretching, you can shake your hands in the air to release the tension.
  • Clapping loudly relieves stress. So go and clap your hands a few times, but try to add more pressure at the point of impact, particularly on the heels of the palm.
These exercise work better if you incorporate stress relieving breathing exercise as well. And as you do these exercise routines, freeing your mind of negative thoughts.

Sexiness in your Voice

Now lets compare the last two actress who played the sexy villain Catwoman, most people said that Halle Berry could never out-purr the sexy meow of feline fatale Michelle Pfeiffer. But does that make Pfeiffer sexier than Berry?

A study shows that those with attractive voices are more likely to be sexually adventurous. Researchers had 149 men and women rate recorded voices according to attractiveness. The study also showed that the most appealing voices belonged to people who had sex at an early age, had more sexual partners and were prone to infidelity.

The audibly seductive men had broad shoulders and narrow hips while sultry sounding women had smaller waists and wider hips. Also, their pinky finger on one hand is almost the same size as that on the other.

A theory suggests that long before humankind discovered the light bulb, people relied on voice quality to determine sex appeal.

Tips on Choosing a good pair of jeans

Most people have a number pair of jeans in their closet but use only one or two the most. That's because they love the way those jeans look on them. The next time you buy jeans, keep the following things in mind so that you pick a pair of jeans that will be among your favorites.

  • Choose a pair that fits you comfortably no matter what the size on the tag says. Some people refuse to get a better fitting pair because they're in denial that they've jump one size bigger.
  • To make you look taller, the length of your jeans should cover your heals and should reach the floor. So when you shop, wear shoes with heels that you usually wear with your jeans.
  • Go for darker jeans. Light or stonewashed may make you look bigger and heavier. If you're conscious about your behind, stay away from jeans without pockets. Choose angled back pockets instead.
  • Flared legs add bulk so opt for boot cut instead. Aside from being stylish, this cut gives an illusion of longer legs.
  • Bring a friend along to help you decide how the jeans look on you.
