Are you experiencing the August blues?

Ever Heard About The August Blues? Here’s What You Can Do About it

You are probably familiar with Sunday night blues, or Blue Monday, or even the post-holiday blues most of us experience after Christmas and the New Year. But did you know that there is a name for feeling bad as the summertime draws to an end? The August Blues really are a thing.

What Are The August Blues?

With most of us spending a good three-quarter of the year eagerly waiting for the summer to arrive, it’s no wonder having to wave goodbye to it feels so damn depressing. The summer leave ends, the clothes get heavier, the day gets shorter, our summer fling is over (though not always), and our beautiful tan is fading like the sound of ‘Despacito’ in our ears.

Funnily enough, the August blues are also felt by those who actually hate summer, with its sweaty days, the scorching sun, the endless insect bites, what feels like a forced carelessness, not to mention the smelly commuters. Having spent over two months putting up with the aforementioned, they just want to shout “Roll on autumn”.

How To Get Over The August Blues

Whether you’ve had the most exciting summer ever, or just a very average one, the fact of the matter is that summer, like all seasons, has to come to an end. The first thing to stop worrying about is not making the most of it. Having regrets is the least effective thing one can do. Even if you didn’t experience the things you had set out to experience, like finding a new partner or losing those extra pounds, it’s not the end of the world. Expecting too much is a sure-fire way to disappointment.

Secondly, you need to appreciate the good things that are waiting ahead. Think walking on fallen leaves, think Halloween, think clothes you actually feel comfortable wearing, Christmas trees and carols, pumpkin soup, Netflix (and –why not- chill), think ski and then think après-ski drinks with friends, think cuddling and nights by the fire. Aren’t you convinced yet?

A third thing to help you deal with the August blues is to draw on the memories of those Sunday nights and then going back to school on Monday. Surely, the weekends were a time to relax and play, but then the weekdays were not as bad as we imagined, right? We did have to go to school and endure lessons, but we also met our friends, got to hang out with our school crush and actually became better people for it. Which might explain why we kind of miss these days now. And it’s also proof that sometimes fear itself is worse than the reality ahead.

Like the start of the school year or a Monday morning, autumn will not be as bad as you think. In fact, it may be something to look forward to – a season full of promises for new beginnings and exciting experiences.

How To Recognize When Someone’s Negging You And Deal With Them

We know, another dating term is not exactly what you need right now – but believe us, you will thank us for helping you recognize when someone is negging you. Yes, the latest trend in modern dating is a bizarre seduction technique that uses insult as its main weapon. Do we have your attention?

What Exactly Is Negging?

The Cambridge dictionary describes negging as “the practice of making negative or slightly insulting comments to someone you find attractive in order to make them take an interest in you”, and while it is very much on-point, we have a feeling you’d like some more explaining.

 An Example Of Negging

This girl spots a handsome, cocky-looking guy (who she normally considers out of her league) sitting at the bar, and decides to take him down a notch a little. So, she employs the cunning technique of negging. She goes up to him and makes a low-grade insult or a backhanded compliment that is sure to throw him off but also arouse his interest. Something like: “Wow you look tired, have you not slept for days?”

Her question will confuse him and take him by surprise, spurring him on to explain things, like why he hasn’t slept or asking her why she thinks so. Then, she can pay him a half-compliment, like “that’s a pity, I imagine your eyes look good when you’re not so worn out”. The idea is a) to draw one’s attention by not doing what is expected (i.e. paying a compliment), and b) slightly intimidating them by undermining their self-confidence so that you get the upper hand in the conversation.

How Do You Deal With People Who Neg?

When it comes to negging, it’s a case of ‘the best defense is a good offense’. Now that you know how to recognize a lady’s effort to neg you, you can reply with a knowing, unfazed laugh and something along the lines of “Is that the best you can do?”, or just say “forget about me, you’re not even good at negging – let me buy you a drink.”

To be fair, negging is a form of flattery, as the person who uses it probably thinks you’re out of their league. However, the bottom line is that if a person needs to resort to a flirting technique that’s sly and based on mildly hurting someone, is that the kind of person you want to be around?

Searching for your soulmate may be why you're alone.

Could Searching For Your Soulmate Be Why You’re Still Alone?

Are you one of those people who believe there is only one person out there who’s your perfect match? According to Greek mythology, as described in Plato’s “Symposium”,  humans were originally created with four arms, four legs and a head with two faces. But god Zeus, fearing their power, split them into two, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other halves; thus generating the idea of a soulmate.

What’s Wrong With Waiting For Your Soulmate?

In theory, this is a very romantic view of love. But in practice, this seemingly innocuous concept may be the root of your chronic loneliness. For it is the very idea that there is one single person out there who we can share our lives with in perfect harmony that precludes us from making a real effort to make a relationship work with someone who proves to be less-than-perfect, or for excluding the very idea of giving them a chance unless they tick all the boxes.

No Chance At All

If you have imagined your soulmate as a person who needs to possess certain traits – like long flowing hair or an academic career in biochemistry, you could be narrowing down your chances of finding a compatible partner dramatically. Could women who happened to have short hair or a successful career as a chef, have crossed your path? Could it be you never even gave them a chance to prove to you they may be a good match due to your preconceptions?

Half-Baked Attempts

Even if you have somehow been convinced to give these people a try, are you sure you did it wholeheartedly? Did you forgive their minor mistakes and faced their flaws with sincere acceptance, or were you subconsciously sabotaging your relationship, thinking it was doomed to failure because they were not your so-called soulmate? How many of their virtues did you allow yourself to appreciate, and how well did you present yourself to these prospective partners?

To cut a long story short, our world is such a big place, even if there is one person who is our perfect soulmate out there, we may never find each other. Isn’t it a shame to condemn yourself to a life of loneliness and constant disappointment just because you are clinging on to an idea of what love should be?

Online daters are attracted to these physical features.

The Physical Characteristics Most Online Daters Look For

What makes a person beautiful? We can all agree that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, and yet there are certain features that set the standards of what is desirable and attractive in every era. Likewise, online daters, who are offered a wide variety of options, seem to have certain preferences as regards the appearance of their potential partners.

These Are The Things That Attract Online Daters The Most

You might expect that online daters would be looking for extraordinary things when it comes to their potential match’s appearance. But you’d be wrong. New research describes the most desirable physical traits for men and women with regards to body type, height, eye and hair color.

The Most Attractive Traits In Women

Ideally, women should be neither too tall nor too short. Women who are between 5’3″ and 5’7″ are the most desirable and sexy, said 48% of those taking part in the survey.

Similarly, a good 40% of male online daters described the most desirable body type as “average”, excluding heavy and skinny ladies.

They should also have brown hair. Disregarding the saying that “blondes have more fun”, 34% of those questioned reported that they would rather date a brunette than a woman with another hair color.

And, as you may have guessed, the men in the survey also expressed a preference for ladies with brown eyes, with more than half of them (52%) saying they prefer the more common brown eyes to blue, green or gray ones.

The Most Attractive Traits In Men

When it comes to men, female online daters seem to have a pretty clear idea of the type of guy they are after.

Almost half of them (47%) would rather date a tall guy who is between  5’7″ and 5’11”.

As concerns hair color, a staggering 70% said they prefer their men to have dark hair, either brown or black hair.

In terms of built, women, like men, prefer their partner to have an average body. It may be pretty unclear what “average” means, but it could be a sign you don’t need to sweat it out at the gym in order to bulk up so much.

Again, regarding eye color, women also seem to have a clear preference for brown-eyed guys, with 52% of them stating their attraction to the warmest and most common eye color.

Were you surprised by these findings regarding online daters’ preferences? There’s no need to go dying your hair if you’re blond or to feel bad for being taller or shorter than average – whatever your natural looks or preferences, it is nice to remember we are all unique and desirable and needn’t change to conform to any rules or standards.
