Bad boys vs. Good Guys - the results!

I know I usually post on Mondays, but I was away for the weekend, chilling at a spa hotel. It was a shame we couldn't stay longer, but work was calling me!

A little while ago I asked for quotes about whether women prefer bad boys to good guys. Huge thanks to everyone who participated, I had lots of fun sifting through all of the responses!

The article actually turned out to be pretty popular when it was published, so now I am going to share it with you. Check it out to see if your quote was featured!

Beware the cellphone.....

Happy Monday, everyone!

First of all, thanks to everyone who helped me out with quotes for my article about Bad Boys vs Nice Guys. Hopefully it will be published during the week so I will let you know!

Now onto today's post! How many of you have been caught out when using cellphones or social media? Maybe you have sent a text to the wrong person and it caused trouble, or perhaps you were tagged in a dodgy looking Facebook photo.

The impact of these things on relationships can be huge, and in severe cases, cause break-ups. Sure, it's not the phones or the social networking sites that really create the problems but they definitely increase the speed that damage can be done. Have you ever made any of these mistakes?

Anxiety and dating

Anxiety is one thing I feel I can talk about with some authority. I have had panic attacks since I was 14, and had varying degrees of stress at numerous points in my life since then. For a while, I thought that I would never get over it and that I was obviously a basket case because nobody else I knew had any such problem. Turned out, it was/is far more common than I knew and there were a whole world of people out there who had the same feelings and the same concerns.

Dating with anxiety is hard work. Not every guy will be patient and understanding, and there is always that fear that if you tell him about your anxiety, he will think you're crazy. The good news is, it doesn't have to be so hard. There are some ways to make it less stressful to find a boyfriend without having to hide the things you are going through.

Dating Lessons Learned

You know how, when you were a teenager, you thought you knew everything about boys and dating and love? No matter what anyone told you, you thought you knew best? Then when you grew up, you realised that many times, the other people were right.

I have been thinking about this a lot lately. I wasn't a major dating know-it-all when I was younger, but I did feel that trusting my instincts was better than any advice anyone could give me. In some respects, I still agree with that. But there were moments when I really could have saved myself a lot of pain if I had listened to my friends and family.

I recently wrote an article on the topic - Things I Wish I'd Known About Dating When I Was 20. Take a look, and tell me what things you would tell yourself about dating if you could go back in time.

Blog makeover

Inspired by my friend Langley, I decided my blog was in need of a little makeover! Although I don't see a time when I will change my awesome banner, the plain pink background was boring me rigid. Now I have a new background and a cool signature, I will be more inspired to post!

I got my background from here, check it out for yourself if you want give your blog a bit of a boost!

Chicksand!

Have any of you guys been watching ABC's Happy Endings? That is a funny show, and in an early episode, it created a brand new term - chicksand. This is funny to me in so many ways - not least because it's so brilliant I can't help wondering why nobody thought of it before!

This word NEEDS to break into modern slang - so I decided I would do my bit to spread the word!

I got an award!



Elizabeth Mueller presented me with this cool award for completing the A-Z blogging challenge! As someone who loves collecting blog awards, I was pretty excited to get one of these! :D Thanks Elizabeth!

Normal blogging service will probably resume towards the end of the week, after I catch up with some of the work I have missed from reading so many blog posts!
