What's your dating personality?
However much you might try to deny it, everyone has a certain way of approaching dating. Some are immediately open and put all their cards on the table, while others keep them considerably closer to their chests. Whether we prefer to meet people at the gym or on dating sites UK singles all have their own dating personalities. Here are some of the main dating personality categories people tend to fall into. Which one are you?
Flirtatious daters are openly sexual from the word go. They have a straw in their drinks to play with seductively, are always smiling and laughing to show off their teeth, and find any excuse for physical contact. Although this type of behaviour is very successful for attracting someone, you won't be taken seriously in the long run - so maybe tone down the flirting after the first few dates!
This 'hard to get' personality is particularly common among men, and it is often employed as a tactic to make them seem interesting and irresistible. Mr Mysterious will arrive late, say hardly a word and be almost impossible to get hold of after the date. But there's nothing more frustrating than not getting a reply for three days! The mysterious tact may just scare people off if you're not careful, however sexy you think it makes you look.
The innocent act involves keeping a lot of secrets to yourself, laughing at your partner's jokes, and generally being polite and wholesome. This is a particularly common tactic for women, as coming across as a fawn-like innocent ready to be 'caught' is psychologically irresistible to men. However, be careful this doesn't come across as stupid or boring...
The Casanova types stand out by a mile. They organise perfect dates at picturesque locations with gentle music playing in the background. They send lavish gifts after the first date and surprise you with weekend tickets to Paris. If this is your personality type, try not to go too overboard at first, or it might scare away the person you're wooing.
Bold as brass, this dater tells it like it is. On the first date, they will be telling you about their exes, warning you about their personal habits and asking some very probing questions. At least you know where you stand with someone like this, but this kind of behaviour can also be a little off-putting.
This eager beaver will text you straight after a date with something like, 'I miss you already.' They will contact you many times a day, even if you're in a different country, and will talk at length about how many children they want to have. Being too eager could definitely scare someone off!
Not everyone you meet comes with a convenient online personality profile, so try to figure out who you're dating from the hints above. As for you, remember that all dating personalities have their pitfalls - just make sure you're not too over-the-top with yours and you'll be fine.

Remembering Family Traditions
Every family has their own traditions. The ways they manage regular occurring events such as birthdays, anniversaries, holidays and even losses. The tradition dictates how these events are to be practiced and who is to attend. Built in to the tradition is the expectation that those involved will continue to be involved and follow their same roles and implicit rules. The family tradition makes for a shared experience and history between family members. The experience of the family tradition gives family members a common ground, a basis to their relationship. The family traditions are the glue that bind families together over time and space. In short, family traditions give meaning and speak to the nature of one's family.
There is an inevitability with family traditions and just like the apple that must fall to earth, so too do family members feel the tug of their traditions.
For many persons the anticipation of the family tradition is met positively, with warmth and acceptance. For these persons there is a comfort in the family tradition. The family tradition provides for a sense of safety, familiarity and certainty. Whatever else is going on, whatever else is happening, many people can count on the family tradition to offer respite from the storm of life and a sense of belonging and harbour from life's storms.
