“Where is your dignity, Man?”

When you’re trying to appeal to a lady, there’s a fine line between trying too hard and impressing her. Sure, when you see a beautiful woman, you want her to pay attention. The thing is, guys that try too hard are a major turnoff to women. Ironically, if winning a woman’s approval is your main goal, you are much more likely to fail at keeping her interest, according to SoSuave.com. You have to be careful that you’re not becoming that desperate guy. Clingy, needy men are major pet peeves for women, and they don’t have time for it. You need to go into a date with a strategy, knowing what impresses a lady, and what turns her off. Flashing a little cash, for example, can be done tastefully and impress her. Paying for a lavish dinner and encouraging her to order the most expensive item on the menu makes you seem over the top. It’s not too hard to check yourself before you fall into the trap of trying too hard, but we’ve put together a few signs that you’re being that guy. Take note, and make sure you don’t come off as desperate.

You Agree to Reschedule More than Once

“You are giving her all the power in the relationship”

If you make plans with a woman, she should keep them. Now, this isn’t to say that legitimate things don’t come up. If someone really has an emergency or good reason to need to cancel, that’s just life. However, if someone cancels without an explanation or expects you to just rearrange your schedule to fit theirs, something is awry. This is especially true of first dates. When you’re an adult, time is very valuable. Once you learn how to how to meet women, you choose when and whom to spend your time with, and in today’s busy world, it’s an investment. Sometimes, women don’t value your time or think your schedule is as important as theirs. A woman like that is to be avoided, which isn’t too hard to figure out. The more confusing situation is when a woman isn’t particularly rude, but when you fall over yourself to accommodate her. Sometimes, this problem can be a combination of both your own flaws as well as hers. By trying to cater to her schedule or whims, you are not only doing yourself an injustice, but you’re also enabling her flaky tendencies. This is a sign of trying too hard. If a woman has a good excuse for cancelling a date, and gives you straightforward and honest answers about rescheduling, that’s when you accept the situation. That’s just a normal, everyday scenario. However, when you’re rearranging your entire schedule just to make sure you can fit in a date, it’s time to reevaluate your priorities.

You Pay for Everything, Even after the First Date

“You will get bankrupt”

Alberta offers a huge variety of date options that range in price. You can go expensive or economical, and for first dates, sometimes it’s worth going the distance. If the woman you’re meeting is someone you really want to impress, dropping a little extra cash for a nice meal is worth the effort. However, after the first date, it’s a reasonable expectation for her to chip in. Of course, some women are traditional, and they expect the guy to pay for things. You should keep an eye out for that upfront, before you meet her, so you know what you’re getting into. Even if she’s an old-fashioned kind of woman, though, you shouldn’t be paying for everything. The line between trying too hard and reasonable is whether or not dating a woman is breaking your bank account. If you can barely afford to keep up with her spending habits, you’re trying too hard. The biggest warning sign is if you’re planning your budget completely around expensive dinners and dates, trying to please her and keep up appearances. While picking up the check on the first date is a nice gesture, it’s not a precedent.

You Hang out with Her Friends… All the Time

“You always have to hang out with her friends only”

Spending time with female friends is a great tactic to learn how to meet women. However, if you start dating a woman and you find that all you do is hang out with her friends, it’s time to reconsider the situation. To start from the beginning, when you first start seeing a woman, hanging out with her friends is fine. If you meet her at a bar or in a more social, relaxed atmosphere, her friends might be there. That’s par for the course. However, if all you do is hang out with her friends, that isn’t a good sign. You want alone time with your lady for more reasons than one, and that’s a reasonable expectation. If she’s expecting you to act like a tagalong, you shouldn’t agree to it. There are plenty of women in Alberta and you don’t need to settle for a woman who’s going to treat you like an accessory. The sign you’re trying too hard is if you just do as she wants, and act like a puppy on a leash. Not only will she think she can walk all over you, but she’ll probably also ditch you pretty quickly. Women that take advantage of guys who are trying too hard are brutal. Avoid falling into the pattern before you get duped.

She Acts like You’re Lucky to Have Her

“She acts like a princess and you are lucky to get a woman like her”

Once again, this is a matter of being reasonable. You can find some of the best tips to meet women, here: meetwomenonlineguide.ca/tactics/. Use the meeting women tips to find a likeminded partner in Canada. One of the best qualities that you should watch for while learning how to meet women is a confident lady. Women who know what they want and carry themselves with confidence are great. That kind of woman will act like you’re lucky to have her, but she will also return the sentiment. She know she’s a catch, but she also makes you feel good about yourself. The type of woman we’re warning you about is the type that acts like you’re a dog, and as though it’s a miracle you’ve managed to snag her attention. This is the pinnacle of trying too hard. If you don’t stand up to a woman like this, you’re really in trouble. To avoid this pitfall, think about how she talks to you. If she’s condescending and you just take it, you’re trying way too hard.

She Never Says Thank You

You can do lots of things for a woman, but one sign that you’re putting up with unreasonable behavior is if she never says thank you. When you take her out, it’s only polite for her to say thank you for whatever it is you’ve done together. Whether you’ve paid for dinner, or taken her to a movie, it’s only polite to thank you for the evening. It’s not a double standard, either. If she paid for a date, it’s also expected that you would say thank you. That’s why this is a major sign that you’re being walked all over and trying too hard. If you’re not sticking to standards and settling for a woman who takes every gesture you make for granted, you shouldn’t stick around.

A good tactic to battle any of these scenarios, and make sure you’re being treated fairly, is to make your expectations clear. If she doesn’t shape up, then ship out, and don’t make the same mistakes next time.

There have been a lot of online battles waged by industry bigwigs to dominate the market and gain an even bigger share than what they already have. Apple versus Microsoft, Microsoft against another formidable foe in Google, and Amazon taking on all comers, are among the most celebrated. And now, the fracas that has been raging on for years between social network giants Facebook and Twitter has escalated into a full-scale war.

The Big Tech War

Who will win the social wars and redefine social media as we know it? First, it is important to identify what triggered the all-out open aggression between the protagonists. Some analysts believe that it all boils down on the issue over who tendered which offer for Instagram. Nick Bilton of the New York Times wrote that before Facebook acquired the startup company for a whopping $1B, Twitter sent feelers for a possible purchase. But this only served to fuel more animosity as Kevin Systrom, the Instagram founder, already testified under oath that it was all speculation and that nothing of the sort ever happened.

Be that as it may, the fact is Facebook seems to have won the bidding war over the photo app; and now, the battlefield is open for what could probably be the biggest tech fight the online community has ever seen. All eyes are now glued online in anticipation of the combatants’ next moves.

Who Is Currently Leading?

Being smaller and younger between the two, Twitter, a privately held company, is clearly the big underdog in the matchup. Recent events tend to support this with Facebook scoring points in various fronts such as its successful bid to buy Instagram, and it’s very formidable $57 billion market cap.

But don’t sell Twitter short, at least not just yet. It still has some fight left. For one, it can roll out its own sepia filters that will significantly reduce the capability of Instagram to correctly process photos on Twitter. It can also disable API access to its find-my-friends feature, or even leak bitter details to Nick Bilton. To put it simply, the war is not yet over.

In similar featured bouts witnessed in the past, the conclusion almost always brought some good for the ordinary consumer. The Apple-Microsoft feud resulted to lower prices, improved operating systems, and fast innovations people would not have otherwise enjoyed without the fierce competition. Likewise, people now enjoy better and smarter phones as a result of Apple’s separate rivalry with Korean upstart Samsung, although the fight sometimes went down to the gutters with patent lawsuits thrown in once in a while.

So far, consumers have yet to see product improvements as a result of the Facebook vs. Twitter war. Fact is, the consumers find themselves on the losing end because the features that provided them the convenience and ease to transition between the two social networks are slowly being removed. Hopefully, in the next few months, after the bickering and mudslinging subside, both Facebook and Twitter will elevate the war into a more productive one, one that will bring better products and services for their millions of users. After all, they are supposed to be in business because of the consumers.

If you are just starting out as a runner, then you will probably be keen to improve your performance in terms of both speed and distance as quickly as possible. There are various ways to do this, but here are 3 top tips to get you running faster and farther.

1. Improve your strength.

When someone says that you need to hit the gym and begin working on your strength training to improve your running speed, you could be forgiven for remarking that muscle bound weight lifters are not much in evidence at running events. However, we are not talking about trying to bench press your own weight and then some here.

Speed and endurance when running are both dependent upon what is referred to as your posterior chain of muscles and strengthening these will markedly improve your performance. When referring to your posterior chain, we mean the muscles that run through from your foot up into your lower back and, in particular, include your calves; which are the muscles making up the rear portion of your lower legs, your hamstrings; which are groups of muscles running along the back of your thighs, and your glutes; which make up the major part of your buttocks.

Strengthening these muscle groups does not mean having to spend hours in the gym every day, but requires a good solid workout of between 45 minutes and one hour, 2 or 3 times a week.

2. Improve your breathing.

The human body needs oxygen to function and the harder the body works, the more oxygen it needs. As you exercise your heart beat quickens and the flow of blood around your body is significantly increased. This is vital because, as your muscles are put to work their demand for oxygen increases. For many runners breathing and exertion do not seem to sit well together, and both their speed and endurance are limited by their inability to breath properly. Control the cadence of your breathing however and your speed and endurance will both increase.

Your breathing cadence is simply the ratio of the number of strides you run while inhaling, to the number of strides you take while exhaling. A cadence of 3:3 therefore means that your run three strides as you breath in, and 3 strides as you breath out.

Setting your cadence is something that takes both practice and time but most beginners will find that they have a cadence of either 3:3 or 3:2. For the best results you should aim to achieve a cadence of 2:2.

3. Step up your distance gradually.

Improving both your strength and your breathing will help you to improve your speed, and will also lay the foundation needed for you to run farther. Increasing your distance does however mean pushing through something of a mental barrier, and so this needs to be done slowly and, ideally, with a little bit of friendly encouragement.

Training can help you to run faster and farther with fewer injuries

Training can help you to run faster and farther with fewer injuries

If you are currently running 5 miles a day, then do not try to push this up to 10 miles a day over the course of a couple of weeks. Apart from being an unrealistic target, your failure to reach it will dent your confidence more than a little. Set yourself a target of increasing your distance by about 5% each week or, if you are feeling really ambitious, 10% each week. Do not however exceed this figure. This might not seem much of an increase, but you will be surprised at just how quickly your ability to cover distance improves.

Adding distance is much harder than adding speed for most beginners, and so it also helps if you can train with a running partner, so that you can encourage each other.
