It’s not by chance that advertising and marketing are the careers that have grown the most in the past few decades. And they are here to stay. People pay huge sums of money so that they can be marketed in a more positive light. The idea is that the investment that is made in making a business or a brand more attractive will be peanuts compared to the money they hope to make as a direct result of this. Continue Reading
Here is a piece of advise to all those husbands who hope to better their wives by criticising them.
In an Island in the pacific there was a tribe of people where everyone lived together, and since they weren’t many; everyone knew each other. A strapping young man had become quite the bachelor and a few young ladies had their eye on him. He was wise beyond his young years, hard working, gentle, every man would want him as a son in law, and he was also easy on the eye.
The island had a custom where when a young man would want to marry a young lady, he would approach the future father in law and would offer a certain amount of cows as a token of how much he wanted to marry that man’s daughter. Depending on how popular and beautiful that young woman was, they would then receive anything up to 5 or 6 cows if the girl was really special. Continue Reading
Everyone knows that when we go on those first few dates, our nerves often get the better of us. It’s not uncommon to open our mouth to say a sentence we spent the past 3 minutes formulating, and instead this strange language we never heard before comes out of our lips. That’s when we noticed we just sounded like a 1 year old child babbling.
And then again there is the food situation. You go to a restaurant on your first date and order something that doesn’t require tremendous amounts of effort to eat. You stay clear of the peri-peri chicken because you don’t want to eat with your hands and look like a caveman. But the simplest of foods always seem to find it’s way to your pristine shirt, and something always gets stuck in your teeth for good measure.
Picture this scenario: You are desperately trying to stay calm as your partner’s tone rises, until she is shouting at the top of her voice.
You think you've succeeded, before she says that one thing that makes you lose control and the screaming match begins. Before you know it, it’s too late; you’ve said something you immediately wish you could take back.
Another argument, another regret.
In reality, whatever your relationship status, you will need to have a great degree of internal strength to be able to deal with adversity and make good decisions that will benefit you and your partner. Here are a few examples: Continue Reading
A new war has been brewing more and more intensely over the past few decades. A war that is painted as being just a humorous joke, but that hides a much deeper problem that is now rampant in relationships.
It’s very difficult to watch a TV show now where you don’t see a woman mocking a man or a man mocking a woman. Script writers come up with hilarious gags that either show women as emotional wrecks who are obsessed with their husbands credit cards, or men who can no longer provide for their families or satisfy their wife in bed. These jokes will inadvertently be played out in different forms in several shows, and although people used to cringe in the beginning, these are now accepted as mainstream. Continue Reading
