How to be Romantic in Any Situation

All our technological advancements have been achieved by nerds, so we have a ways to go before robots know how to talk to girls. Being romantic in any situation is easy. It takes comfort in your own skin, a lot of inner confidence, and a smile. Beyond that, everything else is easy. So how do you achieve all that with a g-g-g-g-girl?!?!

Prepare in Advance

Everything in life is easier when you’re prepared. No matter how smart you are, preparation is indispensable. Sure Jackie Chan can make do with whatever he has available, but it’s nice to have an Arnold or Brad Pitt level of gear stored up. Be prepared for any situation you leave the house for. This doesn’t mean to carry a gear bag with you. It means any time you go out, prepare for those situations.

    Read and Study

    The only way to be confident in any situation is by having things to talk about no matter what happens. Going out, and reading (even internet research when done correctly) will broaden your horizons and give you a variety of subjects to talk about. Keep up on the news, sports, and have a background in a few things. Be honest when you don’t know what you’re talking about. Trust is important to build romance.

    Be Open and Honest

    As long as you’re always honest, you’ll always be open. When you’re open, you’ll attract the right people into your life at the right times. You never know who will be in the same mood as you and where romance will come from, so as long as you’re open and honest with everyone you talk to, you’ll always remain open for romance.

    Learn to Love Yourself

    If you love yourself, you’ll be the type of person who draws people to you. This means you’re more attractive. By being more attractive, you’re more likely to realize your attraction and act more attractive. This increases your odds of romance spurring up at any moment, no matter what your life is like.

      Be Discreet

      If you’re in a marriage or relationship, don’t rub it in everyone’s face. Be polite and honest when asked, and respect the boundaries of the relationship. Other than that, act normal in public. Your significant other will be more likely to get freaky when they’re comfortable. You’ll also attract other women you can either store for later if your relationship isn’t serious or use to get ahead in life, your career, etc. It’s always nice to have attractive friends to keep things interesting. Just make sure you can look yourself in the mirror.

      Surprise People

      Everyone loves to be surprised in the right ways. Find ways to ignite a spark in the room. Keep some good dark chocolate on you at all times. If you know how to make some small craft, keep a few in a drawer in your room. If you’re not crafty, keep some cheap but tasteful jewelry in some luggage. Either way, always have something on hand to pull out spur of the moment to surprise your woman. Chicks dig surprises.

      The Gentle Art of Saying No

      The Gentle Art of Saying No

      No!

      It’s a simple fact that you can never be productive if you take on too many commitments — you simply spread yourself too thin and will not be able to get anything done, at least not well or on time.

      But requests for your time are coming in all the time — through phone, email, IM or in person. To stay productive, and minimize stress, you have to learn the Gentle Art of Saying No — an art that many people have problems with.

      What’s so hard about saying no? Well, to start with, it can hurt, anger or disappoint the person you’re saying “no” to, and that’s not usually a fun task. Second, if you hope to work with that person in the future, you’ll want to continue to have a good relationship with that person, and saying “no” in the wrong way can jeopardize that.

      But it doesn’t have to be difficult or hard on your relationship. Here are the Top 10 tips for learning the Gentle Art of Saying No:

      1. Value your time. Know your commitments, and how valuable your precious time is. Then, when someone asks you to dedicate some of your time to a new commitment, you’ll know that you simply cannot do it. And tell them that: “I just can’t right now … my plate is overloaded as it is.”
      2. Know your priorities. Even if you do have some extra time (which for many of us is rare), is this new commitment really the way you want to spend that time? For myself, I know that more commitments means less time with my wife and kids, who are more important to me than anything.
      3. Practice saying no. Practice makes perfect. Saying “no” as often as you can is a great way to get better at it and more comfortable with saying the word. And sometimes, repeating the word is the only way to get a message through to extremely persistent people. When they keep insisting, just keep saying no. Eventually, they’ll get the message.
      4. Don’t apologize. A common way to start out is “I’m sorry but …” as people think that it sounds more polite. While politeness is important, apologizing just makes it sound weaker. You need to be firm, and unapologetic about guarding your time.
      5. Stop being nice. Again, it’s important to be polite, but being nice by saying yes all the time only hurts you. When you make it easy for people to grab your time (or money), they will continue to do it. But if you erect a wall, they will look for easier targets. Show them that your time is well guarded by being firm and turning down as many requests (that are not on your top priority list) as possible.
      6. Say no to your boss. Sometimes we feel that we have to say yes to our boss — they’re our boss, right? And if we say “no” then we look like we can’t handle the work — at least, that’s the common reasoning. But in fact, it’s the opposite — explain to your boss that by taking on too many commitments, you are weakening your productivity and jeopardizing your existing commitments. If your boss insists that you take on the project, go over your project or task list and ask him/her to re-prioritize, explaining that there’s only so much you can take on at one time.
      7. Pre-empting. It’s often much easier to pre-empt requests than to say “no” to them after the request has been made. If you know that requests are likely to be made, perhaps in a meeting, just say to everyone as soon as you come into the meeting, “Look guys, just to let you know, my week is booked full with some urgent projects and I won’t be able to take on any new requests.”
      8. Get back to you. Instead of providing an answer then and there, it’s often better to tell the person you’ll give their request some thought and get back to them. This will allow you to give it some consideration, and check your commitments and priorities. Then, if you can’t take on the request, simply tell them: “After giving this some thought, and checking my commitments, I won’t be able to accommodate the request at this time.” At least you gave it some consideration.
      9. Maybe later. If this is an option that you’d like to keep open, instead of just shutting the door on the person, it’s often better to just say, “This sounds like an interesting opportunity, but I just don’t have the time at the moment. Perhaps you could check back with me in [give a time frame].” Next time, when they check back with you, you might have some free time on your hands.
      10. It’s not you, it’s me. This classic dating rejection can work in other situations. Don’t be insincere about it, though. Often the person or project is a good one, but it’s just not right for you, at least not at this time. Simply say so — you can compliment the idea, the project, the person, the organization … but say that it’s not the right fit, or it’s not what you’re looking for at this time. Only say this if it’s true — people can sense insincerity.
