AsianDate describes the things you should be getting from your relationship.

AsianDate: Leave The Relationship If You Don’t Get This From It

Even though every relationship is as different as the two partners that are involved in it, there are certain things we all need to get out of our relationships. AsianDate describes these things.

AsianDate Describes The Essential Attributes Of A Relationship

Whatever your age, personal preferences and length of relationship, there are certain things you should demand from a relationship. In other words, unless your relationship is giving you the things described below, it may be wise to leave.

RESPECT

First and foremost, there can be no profound feeling or chances of a happy, balanced relationship if there is no respect between partners. Respect is the foundation upon which all our relationships need to be built, and for romantic relationships, this is, even more, the case. Partners need to show each other that they accept them for who they are, understand their right to be different, and admire them for their true self.

SECURITY

When people enter a relationship, they don’t want to feel like they are constantly walking on eggshells or that they need to be on their toes 24/7. That doesn’t mean one should get complacent, but it’s also tiring to not be able to trust (or be trusted by) your partner.

INTIMACY

Even though many people confuse intimacy with sex, the actual meaning of the word is not just about what goes on between the sheets. In fact, intimacy refers to all words and actions shared by people who are in a close relationship with one another. So, an act of intimacy may refer to a kiss on the cheek, a hug, and her nestled on your chest as you watch your favorite TV program. Intimacy is all the small, imperceptible things that couples will do when they are together, sometimes without even realizing it, because they are feeling affectionate and sexually drawn to each other.

EMPATHY

A romantic relationship doesn’t just involve happy moments and pleasurable experiences. It will without a doubt also involve moments of sadness and grief. This is where you should expect a truly loving partner to step in, be your shoulder to cry on; and show compassion and the will to take some of your pain away.

GENEROSITY

Generosity is not limited to material things – sure, a nice present every now and then wouldn’t harm – but it goes far beyond giving people objects. A generous partner will make sure you are satisfied in bed, they will help you evolve as a person, they will be proud of you when you succeed, and they will be a driving force and a source of inspiration for you.

As you will know by now, AsianDate is not about half-truths and lukewarm feelings. We believe that everyone is worthy of true love. If you are not getting these things – the things you need and deserve – from your relationship, our advice is to keep looking.

Learning how far to open up to someone is a valuable lesson.

This Is How Far You Should Open Up To Someone New

Meeting people is exciting, especially when it comes to someone of the opposite gender, where you may even be interested in seeing how far your relationship with them may evolve. But how do you manage to strike the right balance between oversharing and appearing aloof when you don’t know if and how much you should open up to someone new?

Should You Really Open Up To Someone You Barely Know?

When you meet someone for the first time and there is instant chemistry between you, you may be tempted to share a lot about yourself, or you may feel that oversharing might scare her away and put her off you. It’s not an easy decision to make, that’s for sure.

Pros And Cons

On the one hand, psychological studies have shown that we warm up to people who are willing to share some things about themselves with us straight away. According to research, we are more attracted by those who disclose more personal information because they make us feel trustworthy, important and liked. And the more liked we feel by someone, the more probable we are to like them back too.

Moreover, if we are to establish a connection with someone (romantic or otherwise), we need to have something to work on. How can you connect with someone who prefers to keep his/her cards close to his/her chest? Sharing some things about your experiences and views is essentially the only way to open up to someone who doesn’t know you.

On the other hand, a person who is quick to pour his/her heart out to a stranger often appears to be pathetic, impetuous, and attention-seeking. There are some things we should let others discover about us, instead of overwhelming someone we hardly know with information about our life and personality.

Maintaining The Right Balance

As with most things in life, when you wonder if and how much you should open up to someone new, the best way to go about things is finding the equilibrium between sharing too much and giving away too little.

To get a good idea of how much you should share, the authors of “First Impressions” encourage you to think of your conversation as a game of strip poker. Would you take all your clothes off when the other person is fully clothed? In a similar way, you shouldn’t strip off your soul to someone who’s not willing to do the same. Sharing should be reciprocal, not one sided. If you make the start and the other person doesn’t follow, keep your cards closed.

In the same way, you should take the conversation one step at a time; let it lead you. Don’t start a conversation with the most intimate and personal info. Deepen the conversation gradually, paying attention to her own behavior towards things. If she refuses to go into detail, you should do the same. It’s up to the both of you how serious you want things to be.

Remaining Positive, Avoiding The Heavy Stuff

Personal experiences and feelings are not always positive or happy. Some of the things we have inside are heavy things, awoken by negative experiences and lessons learned through pain and hardship. However, you should not put weight into a conversation with someone you just met. People carry their own baggage and problems, they hardly need someone they just met to put an even heavier load on them.

Not Monopolizing The Conversation

Nobody likes a person who drones on and on about his life/ experiences/opinions; in fact, this is one sure-fire way to make a bad first impression. Monopolizing a conversation is strictly forbidden, whether you are seeing someone for the first of the hundredth time. Make sure you let the other person talk about themselves too, encouraging her to share more (without being nosy, of course), and showing your genuine interest in what she has to say.

At the end of a conversation with someone, you should feel like you learned something about the other person, as they did about you –ideally in equal measure. The right way to open up to someone is to keep the conversation flowing, to share as much as you feel comfortable sharing and allow her to do the same, and to not feel like you either bored her or felt bored yourself. The art of conversation is not an easy art to learn, but practice makes perfect.

A first impression disaster is avoidable, luckily.

This Is What Causes A First Impression Disaster

Like all animals, humans are also built to size each other up very quickly. A first impression is the immediate mental image we make of another person in the very first moments of our encounter. Even though we usually try our best to instantly impress people, sometimes a first impression disaster occurs. This is why.

Can A First Impression Disaster Be Averted?

Luckily, it can. But for us to be able to improve the way people see us when we meet for the first time we need to examine the most common errors made.

To begin with, according to Harvard social psychologist and best-selling author of the book ‘Presence’, Amy Cuddy, people seek to answer 2 crucial questions when they first meet you. The first one is “Can I trust you?” and the second “Can I respect you?”

Regarding these two questions, Cuddy says that most of us tend to consider competence as the more important factor. This is why we break our backs trying to prove that we are smart and talented enough to win a stranger’s trust.

However, the Professor says that it is warmth, or trustworthiness, that constitutes the most important factor in how people evaluate you. “From an evolutionary perspective,” Cuddy says, “it is more crucial to our survival to know whether a person deserves our trust.”

These questions are immediately answered in the very first moments of our encounter, at the same time as we size the other person up too. These moments are enough for a first impression disaster to happen.

The First Impression Mistakes We Make

Some of the most serious first impression disasters are caused by the following behaviors:

#1. We play clever.

Even though everyone likes intelligent people, nobody likes a smartass. When we meet someone for the first time it is a good idea to leave some room for them to express themselves, to make them feel important and to hear them out before we start pretending to know everything, trying too hard to impress.

#2. We share too much too soon.

Trying to connect with others is a noble act, but with people we know nothing about it can prove to be a major trap. When you don’t know what kind of life a person leads, you may reveal embarrassing details about your own life that might offend them and you might regret later.

#3. We adopt a body language of fear or subordination.

In nature, a scared animal will hide in its shell or curl up in order to look smaller and thus, less intimidating. If you find your body language sending out this kind of message, change your posture to a stronger, more confident one immediately. Sometimes non-verbal communication may be equally important as (or more important than) the things we say with words.

#4. We try too hard.

People appreciate calmness and honesty. A person who is not calm is generally seen as dishonest too. When you put in too much effort to impress, by talking nonstop or over-reacting, for instance when a person you just met cracks a moderately funny remark and you practically break down in a frenzied burst of laughter, it’s a sign of desperation and fakery; things that don’t register well with people.

#5. We are too nosy.

When we meet someone for the first time, there is a very fine line we should not cross as concerns the things we can ask them. For example, if we meet a woman who we learn has been divorced, even though we may be dying to know why her marriage came to an end, the question is completely out of bounds. Maybe she was cheated on, or maybe she was the one doing the cheating – asking her this question will only make things awkward and she will take an instant dislike to you.

Although the first few minutes we meet someone are usually quite awkward, we can avoid a first impression disaster by being careful not to adopt these annoying or simply wrong behaviors. We may not always hit it off like a house on fire with everyone, but we will at least give them the incentive to want to know us better.

Modern modern dating is not the enemy.

Modern Dating Is Not Rubbish, And Here’s Why

In life, it is very rare for anything to just be black or white. In difficult times as the ones we’re experiencing, it is also very tempting to idealize the past and the old way of life – probably because we feel like it lifts a weight off our shoulders. We can blame modern dating for being an awful monster, feeling like there’s not much we can do to fight it.

Modern Dating Is Really Not The Monster

When we are looking for that special someone to love and to be loved by, when we are desperate for real emotions, when genuine, healthy, happy long-term relationships are more scarcely seen than the Loch Ness monster, this is when we look for something to blame that is not our responsibility. Is it all modern dating’s fault, though?

Is Simpler Always Better?

Back in our parents’ time, things may have been simpler, but that doesn’t mean they were better. You were introduced to someone that was moderately compatible with you, for example a family friend or someone others thought was a catch because he happened to have a profitable job, and you’d be crazy to let the opportunity go, not date them and end up unmarried and childless at 25.

Nowadays, there is a seemingly endless amount of people to choose from, and we often feel lost in the sea of opportunities. Yes, it is hard to find someone out there who can appreciate you for who you are and who can really integrate into your life, sharing your lifestyle and interests. With opportunity also comes responsibility. Could it be we have grown afraid of too much freedom? Can we really be spoilt for choice?

We also tend to blame the social media, dating apps, and dating sites for the superficiality of our relationships. Things are really simple, though. If you’re looking for something more serious and long-term, all you need to do is be up-front and honest about your intentions. There are so many people out there looking for the same thing as you are – just let them know you are available.

A Self-Fulfilling Prophecy

The more we blame modern dating for our troubled love lives (or the lack thereof), the more we believe in a self-fulfilling prophecy that it’s never going to work for us.

Yes, you will only ever attract one-night stands if you are presenting yourself as someone who’s after them. Of course, a lady will make communication hard for you if you play hard-to-get and make her wait and wait until you text. And she’ll phub you when you’re out on a date if you can’t put your mobile away when she’s talking to you too. You will only ever meet superficial people if you are afraid to be vulnerable on your dates and present only the side of you that you want others to see. It’s not about karma – it’s the give-and-take involved in all relationships.

The Genders’ Roles

Today, sexuality is not as clearly defined as it used to be, nor are the genders’ roles considered as hard-wired as they were a few decades ago. People can date whoever they want – irrespective of age, gender, sexual preferences or other likes and fetishes. Modern dating offers people the chance to connect with like-minded people from all four corners of the Earth, with dating apps opening up a new world where you don’t need to travel the world for a potential partner.

Perhaps it’s time to stop romanticizing a time when men and women had such defined roles they were never seen as equals.  Isn’t it a good thing both men and women can be proud of their sexuality? Isn’t it a huge step forward that they can choose the roles they want to have in a relationship instead of being made to play the roles society has chosen for them?

Killing The Real Monster

Was there ever a time when dating wasn’t awkward or hard? Was there ever a time when people didn’t play games, cheating wasn’t a part of life and falling in love wasn’t both life-affirming and scary? Human relationships have always been a minefield, but they have also been a fun and exciting part of life. And they still are. So when the right person shows up– whether on a dating app or IRL – it won’t matter where or how. Modern dating will restore your faith in love, and the monster will be gone for good.
