Sexy Body Language Tips for the First Date

You are on your first date with your dreamdate. Sexual body language signals to tell you they are hot for you. Tips on flirting for the successful dating game.

1: Gazing adoringly. When associated to someone, we all have problems moving our gaze. Even when the object of our lust has ceased speaking, the lustful stare is still happening. To be a little provocative, use this to your advantage, and during a pause in conversation, keep your eyes on your date to the silent count of five. Conversely, the more often your date blinks, the more nervous they are.

2: Hands. Clenched fists, tightly knited hands or hands pressed against the mouth indicate nervousness and tension. Worse still, is if their hands are holding up their head as this shows total boredom, or they are about to collapse with fatigue or alcohol. Anxious people tend to
Hold their own hands or fidget with objects on the table. Hands placed openly with palms facing up on the table indicate a more relaxed open person. If you are terribly nervous, try having your hands loosely clasped on the table, as this gives off better vibes than gripping your fingers together or folding your arms. Placing your hands on your chest while speaking makes you appear lively and truthful.

3: Volume of speech. If they consider you their equivalent, their tone will not be too high or too low. Very loud voices tend to belong to dominant personalities and very soft veer to the meek.

4: Subconscious autoerotic touching. Sexy thinking leads us to subconsciously touch ourselves, for several reasons. Firstly, to gain attention to various body parts. Guys and girls will both stroke their lips and girls will rub their upper arms, thighs, hips and waists. Secondly, we touch ourselves to tease the other. Thirdly, when sexually excited, blood is rushing around engorging extemities, making everything supersensitive. Touching ourselves then feels good.

5: Mouth. A very strong sexual body language gesture is when your date starts to eat, drink or smoke faster. Thinking about sex gets you touching your mouth. Putting things in your mouth can aggravate that you are interested sexually. Girls lick ice cream cones, play with spoons and suck their fingers.

6: Her Hair. Interested girls will start playing with their hair. Fluffing her hair, stroking her hair, and the strongest of all, the flick of the hair, are all body language signals of availability or flirting. However, if she should start to hide behind her hair she is showing disinterest.

7: Fiddling Guys. As guys become more sexually excited they start to give off their own flirting signals. These can include rubbing his nose, playing with his tie, sliding rings over fingers, and fiddling with loose coins in his pocket. Adjusting his hair is a sign that he is wanting to look good for you.

8: Checking out your butt. If you catch your date checking out your butt when you leave the table to visit the bar …

Monophobia: Treatments for Monophobia

Monophobia is an irrational fear of being alone. There are a lot of people who don’t like to be alone but not a lot who actually suffer from monophobia. In order for your fear to reach a level of being a phobia there need to be physical symptoms involved. If there are physical symptoms you are going to want to know what your treatment options are so that you can get over your monophobia.

Monophobia is not the same as being uncomfortable on your own, it only occurs if you have panic attacks when you are left alone. Therefore any treatment for the condition is going to require that the panic attacks be addressed. Therefore almost any treatment option will include lessons on how to control your breathing so that you can avoid panic attacks or get them under control when they do happen. This is an important first step before you move on to the actual treatment of monophobia.

The most common treatment that will be used to treat monophobia is psychotherapy. This will involve talking to a therapist to find the root cause of your fear. This can be a very effective way of treating monophobia but it can be a slow process as it will likely take many months to get at the underlying issue and figure out how to address them. This is why most therapists combine psychotherapy with other treatments that will help you in the short term.

The most common of the treatments that is usually combined with psychotherapy is a program to desensitize the patient. This will require that the patient be left alone for short periods of time so that they can face their fear and get used to being alone. As the therapy progresses the patient will be left alone for longer and longer periods until they reach the point where they can be left alone most of the time. This will not completely get rid of the fear but it will allow people to at least control it so that they are able to function in a normal setting.

Another common treatment that is widely used for monophobia is hypnosis. Hypnosis has a long history of helping people to deal with phobias so it is no surprise that it will work here as well. Basically while you are hypnotized they hypnotist will convince you that you are not afraid of being alone. Again this is not a cure but rather a short term fix that will help you to function.

One last option that your therapist may consider to help treat monophobia is medication. Usually the medication will be to address the anxiety that you feel when you are alone. This is an approach that therapists normally only use as a last resort. This is because they don’t want you to become dependent on the medication. The medication does not deal with the phobia but rather with the symptoms so it is only effective if it is used in conjunction …

69 MPH Windstorm (and Rain) Leaves a Family in Turmoil

Life a thief in the night, everything went dark and unseen at 11:47 pm Thursday (12-14-06).

I was in the middle of writing an article when it happened. A house that was well lit and humming within minutes took on the feeling of a damp, pitch black cave.

We were advised that a horrific windstorm was coming with rain, and we reacted like most people do: Gee, I wonder if our power will go out? Did we look for flashlights? No. Did we think about water and provisions in case of a real disaster (that would be an earthquake in the middle of a horrific windstorm with rain)? No.

We continued with our usual routine, that is, until the howling wind took out a tree or telephone pole somewhere near, and, bam (like Emeril says on the Food Channel), the lights failed. No wonder.

What hit Western Washington in the Great Pacific Northwest was winds up to 69 mph at nearby McChord Air Force Base and the Defense Department's sprawling Fort Lewis Army Base, home of I Corps, the military's answer to instant readiness for an attack on our country's West Coast .

It was McChord AFB, you may recall, that flew nearly every GI that went to Southeast Asia during World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam Conflict. Our area remains a military stronghold that grows year by year as other military installations are being shut down.

This windstorm was a doozy, like Snoopy sitting atop his dog house in the famous Peanuts cartoon strip writing the beginning of his novel, "It was a dark and stormy night."

The house around the corner had a giant, old growth evergreen come crashing down into the bedroom. The house next door to it had another giant evergreen collapse into its front door entry and through the center of the house. In another community a house was literally spilled in half by a powerful evergreen.

We are a half block from Wonderwood Park, the largest city park in Lacey, a city of 32,000+ that is on the grow as cities go. In our upstairs bedroom we could hear the "boom" of a transformer exploding in the night, much like the Army soldiers from Fort Lewis sending off rounds from a 120-millimeter howitzer at the Yelm firing range many miles down the road (a common sound in Lacey).

When we heard the crack of trees in the nearby park breaking, it was all too scary so we picked up our bedding and headed downstairs to the basement rec room. It seemed like a good move to take the lower ground in this case rather than the higher ground, which is usually better in life. Our house is surrounded by giant evergreens.

About 4 am Friday morning, the cement floor felt no softer since the carpeting and cushioning from our living room futon. The wind seemed to have died down something, so we headed back upstairs to sleep, but it was certainly …

Making Her Valentine's Day Special One Step at a Time

When you want her to know she fills your soul, makes you a better person and that words fall short in expressing your undying love, the overwhelming feelings can sometimes leave you without any good ideas for your Valentine's Day. But there is hope in delivering a satisfying, personal and romantic Valentine's Day tailored just for her if you plan ahead and do it all one step at a time.

Step One: Determining Her Wants and Needs

The first step to creating an amazing Valentine's Day for the special woman in your life, is knowing who she is and what she needs. Does she prefer to be active on a day off? Is she more relaxed and prefers to lounge? What types of things does she need in her life right now? A pedicure? A massage? A new movie that was just released on DVD? That necklace she's been talking about?
You should even try to think of things she may have told you about, like where she used to go to get away when she needed to be alone.

Step Two: Combination Needs with Location

Now that you've taken some time to really think about who your lover is and what she needs this Valentine's Day, choosing a location should not be so difficult.

If she's active and used to love getting away out in the country, take her to the zoo for a quiet picnic for two and some animal sight seeing. If she prefers to lounge around and has fond memories of cuddling by the fireplace, set up a love nest with blankets, pillows and mattress pillows in the loft or living room. Consider a portable DVD player as a gift to make your hide-away evening amazing with some romantic films and a backpack full of snacks, sandwiches and of course, chocolate.

Maybe your partner is a very busy woman, however, and has expressed a strong desire to be kept up in life. These women usually usually work very hard while trying to juggle a home and children. For this kind of Valentine's Day need, I would suggest taking Valentine's Day off, seeing the lovely woman off to work, hiring a housekeeper and asking grandma to come get the kids. This leaves you with ample time to plan reservations at an elegant restaurant or an indoor picnic near the fireplace or television. You could also have a hot bath ready for the moment she steps in the door, complete with red rose petals floating gently atop the water, bath oil already mixed in and lovely, aromatic candles lit about the clean bathroom. This is an excellent precursor to a simplistic but tasty dinner like the ones listed at the end of this article.

For those men who love the woman with a wild or unpredictable streak, choosing a location may be more difficult. Which is why you are the kind of man who should not make reservations too far in advance. Choose two locations which do not …

Jack and Jill Bathroom Design

A Jack and Jill bathroom is shared by two bedrooms each with a separate entrance. It often has two sinks with additional storage. Many times a Jack and Jill bathroom is designed with a partitioned shower area and / or toilet compartment. This allows multiple users into the bathroom while maintaining privacy and functionality.

When remodeling a this space it is important to consider the end users off the bathroom. You must consider how many Jacks and how many Jills are going to be using the bathroom. What is the normal schedule for bathroom usage? Is there adequate storage for all users? What components of the area can or should be partitioned? The purpose of a Jack and Jill bathroom is to create the utilization of two bathrooms at the expense of one. By carefully considering these questions a successful remodel can be accomplished.

A fun and useful twist on the Jack and Jill bathroom is to create a three-room bathroom for additional functionality. In this design there is a shared vanity area but two shower and toilet compartments. There is the additional cost of the new partition but would still have major cost and space savings when compared with two individual bathrooms.

When designing your new shared space it would be wise to consider a more neutral product set that will appeal to both the Jacks and the Jills. The most important of these considerations would be the countertop, vanity, and tile. Choose products and materials that have enduring design elements. These bathrooms are generally for the kids of a larger family. Create a bathroom that will look beautiful and be functional throughout the years as its shared users grow older and more mature. …

6 Excellent Techniques on How to House Train Your Dog Before He Floods Your House With Urine

When you buy a new dog and bring her home, you have to prepare to house train her or she will eventually tear up your house. Many people have no idea of the importance of learning how to house train their dogs. A well trained dog knows when and where to go use the bathroom, keep schedules given by the owner and many other benefits. Here are 6 super tricks on how to house train your dog.

Step 1. The best time to begin to apply these tips and to start training your dog is when she is between the ages of 8-12 weeks old.

Step 2. Experts in the dog training area suggest implementing a crate in your dogs training process. A crate resembles a cage with see through bars and a locking door. It looks like a jail, but it should not be treated as such. Rather it should be made delightful for your dog to enter it. Make it cozy for her. Never keep her in the cage for over 2 hours at a time unless sleeping.

Step 3. Dogs do not relieve themselves in areas that they consider their domain. Once they make their crate their domain, they will never urinate in or around it. So make sure you lead your dog continually to the proper place where she can go to the bathroom.

Step 4.  Always leave the house through the same door every time when in the presence of your dog. Now when you do this, your dog will scratch at that door when she needs to go outside to use the bathroom in the future.

Step 5. Try to take your dog out to use the bathroom around the same time each and every day. Your dog will now train herself to hold her bladder until that appointed time that you have set.

Step 6. If your not-yet-housebroken dog is used to roaming freely around the house, look for clues that tell you he needs to go. Your dog may suddenly put his nose down and sniff the ground intently. He may begin to circle an area. Or, he may stare at the door with an intense look on his face. Signs like these tell you to drop what you’re doing and get that dog out of the house. If you catch your dog doing his business inside (and only if you catch him – not after you discover he has already committed the crime), rush over and stop him by grasping his collar, pulling up on it, and saying, “NO” in a deep, stern voice.

Follow these how to house train your dog tips and you will be better off. I wish you the best.…

Enhance The Beauty Of Your Bathroom With Bathroom Vanity Mirrors

External appearance is essential parts of making a person feel good. This is regardless of whether one chooses to accept or condone society's views on appearance. This rule also applies to the appearance of one's own bathroom. In this it is easy to see why bathroom vanity mirrors would be an important part in the appearance of a bathroom.

It is a little known fact that the bathroom is the best place for privacy and often people wish to explore the options that bathroom vanity mirrors provide. Regardless of what decor the person aims to have, it is important to note that options are always available to increase the "perfect" finish look of bathrooms by choosing attractive vanity mirrors. Variations such on glass medicine cabinets help you to showcase the bathroom vanity mirrors, thus enhancing their look.

Normally the key element when finding a bathroom mirror is function. In order for a satisfactory purchase to be made, you will need to ensure that you know what key elements you wish to explore in your bathroom. Remember that not all bathroom medicine cabinets are unsightly just because they have a function. Whatever your desired effect and needs, it all can be met with a little focus. Your bathroom vanity mirrors can enhance the look of your bathroom not only by their flawless look but also the practical way that they illuminate the light so making your bathroom feel more spacious and welcoming.

Class classification is no longer a valid reason for why mirrors of elegance and beauty should not be easily associated by the hard working common man. Money is not a determining factor either. Bathroom vanity mirrors are now cost effective while still maintaining the high standards in terms of look and bathroom compatibility. With such factors playing in favor of bathroom vanity mirrors, it is clear why so many people are opting to take more steps into acquiring their dream bathroom so that they can showcase it with pride.

The main theme that is to be taken into consideration is that you need to stay focused on your main goal decor. Most people associate elegance with antique mirrors, which are also normally classified as traditional mirrors. If this is the look you wish to acquire then be willing to put in some effort towards finding that mirror that will make you feel proud of your bathroom. Antique mirrors normally give a softer feel to the bathroom while maintaining a certain aura of mystery. They also seem to have the power to capture the untimely sense of unobtainable beauty and social class ranking. Due to this it is clear to understand why so many bathrooms can easily be converted to a place of tranquil beauty. …

Here Are Some Helpful Tips to Make Your Day Easier and More Efficient

Regardless of what ever task you are doing in your home or in your office chances are there are some nice handy tips to make it a bit easier. Here are some tips to help you out should you ever run across these same scenarios.

Do you own some silver and it looks tarnished? Do not fear nor go out and buy some expensive cleaner. A solution is as close as your bathroom sink in the form of your toothpaste. Take your toothpaste and rub it on your silver. If you have an old soft bristle toothbrush available, it will help speed this process up. Using the toothbrush, scrub your silver with the toothpaste and then rinse and of course dry with a soft cloth. Your silver will be shining in no time.

Are you moving some furniture around in your house? Afraid you might scratch the hardwood floors? Take some of your socks, (sports tube socks work best) and put them on the legs of your furniture. The socks help prevent or reduce any scratching that may occur. Of course if your socks have holes in them, there is not much I can say.

Did the kids decide to use the nice wallpaper in your dining room as their personal canvass for their crayon adventures? Not to worry. Add some rubbing alcohol to a soft cloth and then gently wipe the cray marks away. Make sure you do not use too much alcohol and of course it is best to open a window in the room since the rubbing alcohol can have a strong odor.

Do you go camping with the family? Before you put away those sleeping bags do not forget to add a dryer sheet inside. The dryer sheet will help keep the sleeping bag stay fresh and smell like new when you go to use it the next time.

Get your snow shovel ready for next winter (or this winter if it is up you) by waxing it up. That's right. Apply a coat of wax on your shovel. It helps reduce that heavy wet snow from sticking to it, which makes your job easier.

Do not throw away those plastic gallon milk containers. You can cut them in half with a utility knife, drill five "" holes in the bottom for drainage and use them to pot plants as garden starters. You can also use 2 liter soda bottles and yogurt cups to make a great plant starter.

Finally, before you put those newspapers in your recycle bin, if you are about to mail a package you can shred the newspaper and use it as packing material. It's free, well almost free, you paid fifty cents to have delivered, and lightweight. It will help cushion the blows your package will receive along the way during shipment and when it finally arrives at the other end the person can simply recycle it with the box you shipped your package in. …

Get Ready For Guests

The holidays are coming up fast and for most of us that means various guests who probably have not set foot across your threshold since last year.

Whether your guests are coming just for the day or will be overnight visitors, this handy holiday home checklist will help make your space as inviting and comfortable for your visitors as possible.
Entrance

* Make sure all pathways and the drive are as free as they possibly can from ice and snow. Taking Grandma to the emergency room because you did not have time to grit or to make that phone call to get your driveway plowed is hard an auspicious start to the holidays.
* Another big safety precaution is to ensure all of your outdoor lighting actually works and gives off enough light that people will not be tripping over strange objects as they try to navigate their way to your front door.
* Establish a spot to gather everyone's cold weather armor (coats, hats, scarves, boots) once they are inside. If your coat closet is not big enough to accommodate it all consider designating a certain room as a cloakroom instead. You may also want to invest in a nice new doormat so that the amount of mud being tracked across your clean carpet is kept to a bare minimum.

Living Room

* Schedule a professional carpet cleaning before your guests arrive. Not only will your carpets look better but a newly cleaned carpet smells great too.
* Take the time to actually clean your windows – or hire someone else to do it for you – so that all those outdoor decorations you spent hours are actually able to be approved from indoors.

Bathrooms

* Make sure you give your bathrooms a good one over before the guests arrive. If the grout is really grimmy take out a toothbrush and clean it up with just a little hot water and dish soap.
* Apart from having a number of guest towels on hand in the bathroom, buy a few "emergency" supplies from the dollar store to give out to guests who may have forgotten to bring some of their overnight essentials like toothpaste, toothbrushes and certain other personal care items.

Kitchens

* The modern kitchen is often the real hub of holiday entertainment and social activity. Clear the clutter off the counter tops and encourage everyone to mingle by placing a few snacks and drinks out on a kitchen counter top or kitchen island.
* Make sure all your appliances work, especially those little ones you rarely use like that neat cappuccino thingy or the toaster. Although it may a little too late to go out shopping for a new stove, if your microwave has seen better days now is a great time to retire it and replace it with a newer, more energy efficient model.

Guest Bedrooms

* Clear out plenty of closet space so that your guests can actually hang their clothes up because no one …

Signs and Symptoms of a Cheating Spouse Or Partner
