Ten Of The Most Beautiful Places Of The World!

We live in a world blessed with sights that are beautiful beyond words. Every human being dreams of and possesses a desire to visit those places in their lifetime. Living in modern cities with high-rise buildings, we tend to miss out on what mother-nature has to offer and some of the man-made structures par excellence.
Look at these places and you will see beauty that fills the eye and warms the heart. It is not only inappropriate to just pick a few places from the huge expanse of the world but also humanly impossible.
They say that ‘beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder,’ and there are perhaps other places that have touched your heart. For this reason, we do not claim that these places we are bringing to you are the best, but they are certainly among the most beautiful places of the world.

All of you have been wondering about the same thing for such a long time. But you haven’t quite come around to doing that lately, have you? There is some or the other obstacle that comes in your way. But don’t worry, for the following tips will surely make a guy ask you out.

1. Be gorgeous

This is the first thing that a boy notices about you. So take care of yourself and don’t just look pretty, look gorgeous. Comb your hair fancily, apply a lipstick that matches your complexion and other such essential things to make him notice you. Remember, first impression is always the last impression.

2. Enhance your best feature

You surely love your body, but there will be a certain feature that you love the most. So enhance it all the more. For instance, if you have sleek and slender legs, you might try wearing skinny jeans or skirts.

3. Be yourself

Don’t be anyone’s copy. In other words, just be true to yourself and act naturally whenever you are around him. He will see that you are not trying to impress him by being somebody else.

4. Be the first to start

Don’t be shy to smile if you see him walking around the corner or just wave to him. So take that little first step as it matters a lot.

5. Learn about his interests

Find out what he is interested in, where he likes to eat , what places he hangs out, what sport he likes and more such things. This will be better for you as he will observe that you are interested in him and you will also get to know his likes and dislikes.

Top 10 Things Men Hate About Women

Does your boyfriend or brother complain about some particular habit or behavior of yours that you don’t even seem to notice? Chances are that the men in your life hate some of those things that are just specific to women. Not just men in your life, but men in general hate some habits or behavior of some women. Interested to know what those are? Then continue reading.

1. Maintenance costs

Men don’t prefer women who have really high budgets and always like to go to high-end shops just because they have a boyfriend. Men think that some women go shopping or love having dinners at posh restaurants just so they get to spend someone else’s money. The beauty parlor visits also get tiring for men to handle.

2. Showing no respect for elders

Men seriously wish women to be respectful to their elders and parents. They don’t like those women who don’t know how to behave or talk with elders. They want women to show proper respect to their parents and all elders in general.

3. Indulging in gossip

‘Gossip’, men do really cringe at this word. They can go running to the hills if women start gossiping about everything under the sun. They gossip about the next door girl, the newbie in school, other men. God help them! They don’t even leave their friends and best friends out of their gossip net. This is what men hate about women

4. Whining about small things

Women never seem to be satisfied with what they have. They always look for ways to be more ‘content’. If their friend got a new dress, they will want to have it. If they didn’t get to go to a movie, they will complain about it. If their mother didn’t allow them for a night out, they will complain. Men hate such behavior from women

5. Going berserk while shopping

Men generally don’t like to shop, but they adjust when they are with their women. However, when they do go shopping, women can drive them crazy by acting plain kiddish when they see a new Calvin Klein top or a DKNY bag. Some women tend to scream and go, “Oh my God! Just look at that!” By this, they not only get attention from everyone within a 2 feet radius, but sometimes also manage to get giggles and smug smiles. And at that moment, men wish they would be anywhere but near their girl.

9 Reasons Why Life Is Better After 25

9 Reasons Why Life Is Better After 25

When you complete 25 years of age, it’s like having lived the first quarter of your life. Hence, 25 is considered as a threshold. As you step on to the next phase of your life, it begins a new era of new excitement, new opportunities and a bunch of several interesting things that would make your journey worthwhile. Mentioned below are a few reasons why life is better after 25.

1. You would have matured

By the time you turn 25, you would have matured as a person. You would have undergone few trials and tribulations in life. So, you would have mustered the strength to tackle life’s problems in a better way. You may have the practical knowledge that can help you to reach places. You may have also become street smart by the time you reach 25.

2. You would have become a better person

As a child, you were probably a problem kid. As a teenager, you were way too annoying for your mom. But as you mature, you would also transform into a better individual. You would have become responsible for your actions and would have also become sensitive towards others’ feelings and emotions.

3. You would be able to understand people

By the time you turn 25, you become more capable at understanding people. At your college, at your workplace and amid your friends and family, you would have come across so many people and situations that you begin to understand people and their personalities better.

4. You would have made a group of trustworthy friends

From the time you went to preschool until today, you must have made so many friends. But, during your times of crisis, only a few of them must have helped you out. These friends must have taught you the true meaning of trust. Only when you age, you know who your real friends are.

5. You may have chosen a career of your choice

By the time you turn 25, you are most probably done with your studies and you must have chosen a career of your choice. During your initial teenage years and even as you were completing your education, you must have been quite confused as to what career you should take up. But, by 25, you must have tried few jobs and come to the blissful conclusion as to which career suits you best.

Dress of Roses

Dress made from 1,725 roses 
For your gown, think about what feels romantic to you.  Whether you have a dramatic satin or velvet dress with a plunging neckline, or a tight bodice with a tremendous skirt, always dress to capture the essence of the mood.

For the groom, a traditional black tuxedo with a red rose boutonniere or a deep red tie is dashing. Or a more 1940’s twist may be up your alley.

10 Ways To Strengthen Your Relationship

10 Ways To Strengthen Your Relationship

A relationship is like a little flower. You need to nurture it with care and allow it to blossom to see its beauty. No relationship can survive without joint efforts of both the partners. However, most people get confused on what they should be doing to help the bond between them and their partner grow strong. Here are some ways to strengthen your relationship.

1. Trust one another

Trusting one another is a basic requirement for every relationship. Trust is a key ingredient for any healthy relationship and without trust, a relationship has no base at all. Despite the world accusing your partner of anything, you should be strong enough to identify, connect and most importantly trust your partner so much that he/she never feels lonely even when the world turns its back. Without trust, there would always be a situation wherein you would find either partner having a doubt about the other one. The constant doubt and suspicion would deepen the cracks in a healthy relationship and ultimately result in a split.

2. Accept flaws

You must understand that every person on this planet has its positive and negative attributes and your partner is no exception to this rule. Accepting each other’s flaws and mistakes is something that helps you strengthen your bond among yourselves and build a strong and lasting relationship. When you know each other’s positive and negative qualities, it helps the two of you adjust better with each other. Also, when the mistakes are accepted, there is lesser chance that you will constantly criticize your partner about them. Thus, knowing these little things and dealing with them in the course of life is the most effective solution that would help strengthen your bond with your partner.

3. Respect each other

Respect is another aspect of a relationship that cannot be ignored. It is only when you respect one another will the world respect your relationship. Respect is not something that happens overnight. You need to work hard to gain your partner’s respect. When you respect your partner, you place him/her a notch above the rest which in turn makes your partner feel special and results in strengthening your relationship.

4. Give each other space

When couples lose their space in a relationship, they tend to suffocate and ultimately break away from the relationship. Giving each other space to lead lives separate from one another is vital in a relationship. Space means giving each other time to retain individuality and fully trust each other. Space would keep the two you apart for some time yet bind you closer in the relationship.

5. Break predictability

Predictability can act as a silent killer in a relationship. When everything about your relationship is known and out in the open, it gives boredom the scope of creeping in and ruining things. Predictability must be avoided by the two of you. Give occasional surprises to one another by breaking away from routine. Make ways for regular getaways to unexplored places. If nothing, walk down the street right after dinner to get ice-cream. Breaking away from routine is a big stress buster and enhances any relationship for the better.

Does your belly fat make you crazy?

Being FOF comes with so many great things--wisdom, levity, experience, humor.....And one not-so-great thing: belly fat.
So we paused in the middle of our daily sit-up regimen to speak with Dr. Michael Kaplan, one of the nation’s foremost experts on weight loss. Dr. Kaplan revealed the truth behind belly fat over fifty--why it’s there, what you can do about it, and why you should stop obsessing.
  • FOF: We hear it from FOFs all the time: ‘It’s so much harder for me to lose weight now, and I’m gaining in my belly area. What can I do?’
    • Dr. Kaplan: The unfortunate consequence of aging--for everyone--is that your metabolism slows by about 5-10 percent per decade. When women hit menopause, it slows an additional 5-10 percent. Many women spend their lives at a normal BMI [body mass index] of 23 or 24, and then they hit menopause and find themselves at a BMI of 27 or 28--ever so slightly overweight. And they can’t take off the pounds. Also, the body is programmed during menopause to lay down extra subcutaneous fat in the abdomen. So even if you’ve never had fat in your abdomen, all of a sudden you have a belly.
  • Ack. Why do our bodies suddenly put fat in the middle?
    • We don’t know, but it’s universal. It’s just kind of in our DNA that this is going to happen to a woman when she hits menopause.
  • Can you get rid of it?
    • Yes. But the truth is, a woman has to work really hard to get rid of it. First, you have to exercise more. Even if you went your whole life at a normal weight and you exercised, you have to start adding exercise as you approach menopause. I see patients who have never exercised in their lives, and then they start menopause and suddenly have to start in order to maintain their bodies. The average recommendation for a woman to really be doing well at this age is 5 hours per week.
  • That’s a lot of hours.
    • It absolutely is. In all studies I’ve ever read, you have to do about three hours a week to lose weight, but after menopause, it is definitely harder.
  • What about diet?
    • A woman’s metabolism once she hits menopause--if she’s normal weight--is usually about 1300 calories a day. That means she’s burning about 1300 calories every day, so she has to eat 1300 calories to maintain her weight. It’s pretty hard to lose weight at that rate, because you have give up 3500 calories to get rid of just one pound.
  • How do you give up 3500 calories if you can only eat 1300?!
    • It’s over time! So if you ate 1000 calories a day, you would lose 1 lb every 12 days. It’s really discouraging for a lot of women, and we usually see them after they’ve gone on multiple commercial programs and the weight isn’t coming off. Or it’s coming off so slowly that they’re discouraged...
  • What’s your approach?
    • As doctors, we have the advantage that we can prescribe a low-calorie diet. Anything under 1000 calories per day has to be medically prescribed--by law. We prescribe nutraceuticals--low calorie shakes, bars and soups that are made according to the same standards as pharmaceuticals. Each one is 160 calories and patients consume 5 daily. A woman can temporarily use these to get back to her pre-menopausal weight. While she’s doing that, we’re working on the behavioral issues that are going to keep the weight off long term.
  • So that helps you speed up the initial weight loss, but what’s the long-term strategy?
    • We try to figure out a day-to-day routine, Monday through Friday, where she can eat about 1100 calories a day. We’ll come up with meal options and an exercise plan. If we do that, we’re banking about 2000 calories for the weekend, so she can relax and go out on Saturday and Sunday. We also address the psychological issues--that’s a huge part of this. We help women figure out their triggers---what causes them to overeat.
  • If someone ups her exercise and changes her diet and deals with her psychological issues, is it possible that she still won’t lose her belly fat?
    • ImageYes. Often, a part of this isn’t going to go away. These fat cells develop and get bigger during menopause. You can make them smaller, but you can’t get rid of them completely. If you get down to the weight you’re happy at, but you still have belly fat that’s bothering you, I might suggest surgery. Liposuction would actually get the cells out. I recommend that as a last alternative.

6 Great Ways To Have A Happy Marriage

6 Great Ways To Have A Happy Marriage

As we uncover the secrets to have a happy marriage from a few of our close friends, we find out that the ‘secrets’ are not really secrets. They are certain issues that you simply need to be aware of. Some of them are behavioral traits, some are personality traits while some are just plain old common sense. Let’s allow some of our well experienced friends to speak in this matter.

1. Allow your partner to screw up

‘You may not have a happy marriage by pinning down your partner for every fault of his. But if you allow room for mistakes and screw ups, your partner will realize that you are learning to let go of his shortcomings’ says Rebecca, 32. She tells about an incident when her husband Rob, forgot their anniversary. Instead of reacting wildly, she thought ‘Does he have too many problems at work? Is he stressed out with a busy schedule?’, ‘Does he have financial problems?’ Thinking like Rebecca will foster a loving relationship between you and your husband and is a sure shot way to have a happy marriage.

2. Talk openly with your partner

‘Having open communication lines is absolutely critical’ says Ruby, 25. We can’t agree more. Have you ever let go of a certain argument just because you felt it was not worth arguing? Do you suppress your emotions thinking that you might hurt your relationship with your husband? We suggest that you don’t, because those suppressed emotions can later blast off like a pressure cooker. To have a happy marriage, you must talk freely with your husband.

3. Respect your partner and his needs

Janice, 44, uses the word ‘respect’ in a certain context here. ‘To have a happy marriage, don’t just fulfill your partner’s needs. Respect them too’ she advices. ‘And this goes both ways. He should respect your needs as well. This will straighten out a lot of other problems automatically and will allow you to have a happy marriage’.

10 Ways To Make A Girl Feel Special

There must be more than a hundred ways to make a girl feel special. But, the ten ways mentioned below are the most tried and tested. Check them out and see if your guy practices any of them. If he doesn’t, just give some hints here and there and your job will be done.

1. Being romantic in public

One thing we girls absolutely love is affection in public. We girls love to flaunt our guy before our friends. Some flirting and mushiness will definitely make a girl smile. However, if a guy goes overboard with PDA (public displays of affection), then it’s a turn off.

2. Sharing interests

Our hobbies and passions may be far different from those of the guys, but if they try to take some interest in what we like, we will be delighted to show them around. Girls appreciate this kind of care and concern much more than expensive gifts.

3. Talking a lot and prodding about small things

Girls love to talk, whilst boys are more bottled up. We girls like it if our guy asks us how our day was and listens to all the stories that we have to tell. That is why, listening without interrupting is a very essential asset for a relationship.

4. Flattering with small gifts

Small tokens once in a while without any reason or rhyme will win a girl’s heart. A small necklace, a customized head scarf, a box of chocolates anything inexpensive but given with love and hugs weaves magic. Don’t you think, girls?

5. Verbalizing love and support

Girls look for romance and emotional support in verbal terms. A guy may be genuinely there for her, but until he verbalizes that, she won’t be satisfied.

8 Questions A Guy Must Never Ask A Girl

8 Questions A Guy Must Never Ask A Girl

We had previously suggested some funny as well as random questions you girls could ask a guy. Now let’s turn the tables around and delve into what questions guys should never ask a girl. You all know there are those outright silly questions you’ve been asked or questions that make you visibly cringe. Here is a list compiled of the questions that a guy should never ever ask a girl.

1. Are you sure that looks good on you?

This question is sure to start an epic battle. Girls love to dress and they choose their outfits and accessories with meticulous care. Also, anything negative said about their looks makes them touchy. So if a guy asks a girl anything like that then he is about to get a sound hearing from her. Isn’t he?

2. Are you a virgin?

No girl on this planet wants to hear this from anyone – be it her boyfriend, husband, friend (a BFF would maybe do). But if a guy asks her questions about her virginity or something close to that, then he is bound to have a ride in hell. This is obvious as girls don’t like to answer such questions that intrude their privacy.

3. Don’t you think you should join the gym?

Some girls are exceptionally thin while some others fall on the chubby side. Nevertheless, she will complain on how not-so-happening her body is. Girls somehow have a natural tendency to be never satisfied with their bodies. So if they want a practical approach, this question seems right. But if a guy commits the mistake of suggesting to join the gym, he will surely get into an argument.

4. Can I borrow some money from you?

The basic premise of a relationship is that the guy is supposed to take care of a girl in all ways possible- emotionally, physically and most important of all, financially. The girl thinks that he will provide for her in all situations. This doesn’t mean she is totally dependent on him, but just this knowledge that a guy is there for her makes her feel more secure. So getting this question from a guy topples all her beliefs.

5. Send them an album of old photos

Photos are the best way to revive old memories. Make an album with photos of you all together. You can also add a message at the start of this album reminding them how wonderful it was when you all were together. Conclude by telling them how much you miss those old days.
