Go to These 10 Couple Classes if You Want a Sweet and Fun Relationship

A person can only do the exact same thing so many times before they get bored, so it’s in your best interest to do new things with your partner. Grab your partner’s hand and go to these ten artsy, helpful, and sexy couple classes you can take together for a sweet and fun relationship.

1. Relieve Stress in Massage Class

Join your partner for a sensual, stress-relieving experience that will calm your nerves and put you at ease. Make sure you pay attention to the pleasure points that cause the most satisfaction so you can please your partner after those busy, stressful days at the office. You just might put them in the mood for some frisky fun after you work out all of their kinks.

2. Express Yourself in Acting Class

Honest, open communication is a priority for any couple that desires long-lasting relationship success. Performing scenes and monologues in front of others will improve your ability to communicate, remove barriers that prevent authentic dialogue, and make you feel more comfortable with being vulnerable with you partner.

3. Mix a Cocktail in Mixology Class

Alcohol is tons of fun (as long as you don’t get carried away with it), but you can’t deny that going to the bar isn’t the most affordable thing in the world. You will discover tasty drink recipes that will make your partner’s taste-buds scream with delight. In addition, you’ll be able to impress your friends with professional-quality cocktails that leave them begging for more.

4. Make Tasty Treats in Cooking Class

If you’re a grown adult, there is no excuse for not having a grasp on how to cook meals at home. Also, if only one half of the relationship is responsible for all meal preparation due to the other half not having a clue what to do in the kitchen, you’ll now be able to split this chore as equals for a more fair relationship. You will become able to woo your partner by surprising them with breakfast in bed or an elaborate romantic dinner after work. (Don’t forget to take the kids to a sitter so you can enjoy a precious moment with just the two of you!)

5. Shake Your Money-Maker in Dance Class

Fellas: I know some of you don’t like to dance, but the odds are likely that you wife or girlfriend loves it. Even if you feel silly, think about how much fun she would have in a swing, tango, or ballroom dancing class. You’ll also get some much-needed exercise that will help you lose weight and be more confident in your body.

6. Pursue Fitness in a Group Exercise Class

It can be hard to find the motivation to exercise alone, so check out the group exercise class schedules at your area gyms. Many gyms, such as the YMCA and Anytime Fitness, offer a wide variety of exercise classes that are suitable for a range of experience levels and personal preferences. Some common offerings include boot camp, yoga, kickboxing, water aerobics, and group power (a resistance training class with movements synchronized to empowering music). Find something suitable for your goals that you can both agree on, and get moving!

7. Create Something Meaningful in Art Class

Whether you want to make a painting, compile a scrapbook, or sew a quilt is entirely up to you. You’ll be able to combine your talents to create something meaningful as a team, a bonding experience that no happy couple could argue with. As an added bonus, you’ll be able to create meaningful homemade gifts that impress your friends and save you money during birthdays and holidays.

8. Prepare for an Overseas Trip in Language Class

Traveling to new, exciting, exotic countries is an amazing experience, but it can be a bit stressful if you don’t have a grasp on the native language. Plan an overseas trip with at least a year to spare and take a language class so you’ll both be able to talk to the locals without depending on a language book for the entire trip.

9. Improve Your Pad in a Home Improvement Class

If you’d like to do some home remodeling, check out stores like Home Depot and Lowe’s in your area and ask if they offer any classes on the projects you would like to pursue.

10. Make Your Partner Say, “Mmm,” in Kama Sutra Class

Who wouldn’t like to have a more explosive and pleasurable sex life with their partner? Talking about sex might be considered taboo in some cultures, but it shouldn’t be. There is nothing wrong with wanting to improve intimacy with a person you love and care about very much. Going to a Kama Sutra class will teach you new ways to explore your partner’s body that you never thought of before, and will help you become more comfortable with communicating your desires in bed.

If you’ve ever taken couple classes with your partner, please tell us all about it in the comments.

10 Proven Ways to Judge a Person’s Character

10 Proven Ways to Judge a Person’s Character

We all fall into the trap of judging a person’s character by their appearance. How wrong we are! All too often, the real character of the person only appears when some negative event hits them or you. Then you may see a toxic person emerging from the ruins and it is often a shock.

A truly frightening example is revealed in the book by O’Toole in Bowman called Dangerous Instincts: How Gut Instincts Betray Us. A perfectly respectable, charming, well dressed neighbor was found to have installed a torture chamber in his garage where he was systematically abusing kidnapped women. This is an extreme example, but it does show how we can be totally deceived by a person’s physical appearance, manners and behavior.

So, what can you do? You want to be able to assess personal qualities when you come into contact with colleagues, fresh acquaintances and new friends who might even become lifelong partners. You want to know if they are:

  • honest
  • reliable
  • competent
  • kind and compassionate
  • capable of taking the blame
  • able to persevere
  • modest and humble
  • pacific and can control anger.

The secret is to reserve judgment and take your time. Observe them in certain situations; look at how they react. Listen to them talking, joking, laughing, explaining, complaining, blaming, praising, ranting, and preaching. Only then will you be able to judge their character. This is not foolproof, but if you follow the 10 ways below, you have a pretty good chance of not ending up in an abusive relationship.

1. Is anger a frequent occurrence?

All too often, angry reactions which may seem to be excessive are a sign that there are underlying issues. Do not think that every person who just snaps and throws his/her weight around mentally and physically is just reacting normally. Everyone has an occasional angry outburst when driving or when things go pear-shaped.

But if this is almost a daily occurrence, then you need to discover why and maybe avoid that person. Too often, anger will escalate to violent and aggressive behavior. You do not want to be near someone who thinks violence can solve personal or global problems.

2. Can you witness acts of kindness?

How often do you see this person being kind and considerate? Do they give money to beggars, donate to charity, do voluntary work or in some simple way show that they are willing to share the planet with about 7 billion other people?

I was shocked when a guest of mine never showed any kindness to the weak and disadvantaged people in our town. She was ostensibly a religious person, but I began to doubt the sincerity of her beliefs.

“The best index to a person’s character is how he treats people who can’t do him any good, and how he treats people who can’t fight back.”

Abigail Van Buren

3. How does this person take the blame?

Maybe you know that s/he is responsible for a screw-up in the office or even in not turning up on time for a date. Look at their reaction. If they start blaming other colleagues or the traffic, well, this is an indication that they are not willing to take responsibility for their mistakes.

4. Don’t use Facebook as an indicator.

You will be relieved to know that graphology (the study of that forgotten skill of handwriting) is no longer considered a reliable test of a person’s character. Neither is Facebook stalking, fortunately. A study showed that Facebook use of foul language, sexual innuendo and gossip were not reliable indicators of a candidate’s character or future performance in the workplace.

5. Read their emails.

Now a much better idea is to read the person’s emails. Studies show that the use of the following can indicate certain personality traits:

  • Too many exclamation points may reveal a sunny disposition
  • Frequent errors may indicate apathy
  • Use of smileys is the only way a person can smile at you
  • Use of the third person may reveal a certain formality
  • Too many question marks can show anger
  • Overuse of capital letters is regarded as shouting. They are a definite no-no in netiquette, yet a surprising number of  people still use them.

6. Watch out for the show offs.

Listen to people as they talk. How often do they mention their achievements, promotions, awards and successes? If this happens a lot, it is a sure indication that this person has an over-inflated view of his/her achievements. They are unlikely to be modest or show humility. What a pity!  Another person to avoid.

7. Look for evidence of perseverance.

A powerful indicator of grit and tenacity is when a person persists and never gives up when they really want to achieve a life goal. Look for evidence of them keeping going in spite of enormous difficulties.

Great achievements by scientists and inventors all bear the hallmark of perseverance. We only have to think of Einstein, Edison (who failed thousands of times) and Nelson Mandela to get inspiration. The US Department of Education is in no doubt about how grit, tenacity and perseverance will be key success factors for youth in the 21st century.

8. Their empathy score is high.

Listen to how they talk about the less fortunate members of our society such as the poor, immigrants and the disabled. Do you notice that they talk in a compassionate way about these people? The fact that they even mention them is a strong indicator of empathy.

People with zero empathy will never talk about the disadvantaged. They will rarely ask you a question about a difficult time or relationship. They will usually steer the conversation back to themselves. These people have zero empathy and in extreme cases, they are psychopaths who never show any feelings towards their victims.

9. Learn how to be socially interactive.

We are social animals and this is what makes us so uniquely human. If a person is isolated or a loner, this may be a negative indicator of their character. You want to meet a person who knows about trust, honesty and loyalty. The only way to practice these great qualities is to actually interact socially. The great advantage is that you can share problems and celebrate success and joy together.

“One can acquire everything in solitude, except character.”

Stendhal

 10. Avoid toxic people.

These people are trying to control others and often are failing to come to terms with their own failures. Typical behavior and conversations may concern:

  • Envy or jealousy
  • Criticism of partners, colleagues and friends
  • Complaining about their own lack of success
  • Blaming others for their own bad luck or failure
  • Obsession with themselves and their problems

Listen to these people talk and you will quickly discover that you need to avoid them at all costs because their negativity will drag you down. In addition, as much as you would like to help them, you are not qualified to do so.

Now, having looked at some of the best ways to judge a person, what about yourself? How do others see you? Why not take Dr. Phil’s quiz and find out. Can you bear it?
