Singles and Regrets ~Why Romance is top of the List

Way too often when asked what thing in life people regret the answer is that chance I didn’t take when it comes to love,relationships and romance. If “onlys” and “I should have” eat singles up inside. Why did I not go out with that one when I had the chance and why did I not tell them how I felt top the list of things people regret in life.

Women tend to name romantic regrets almost twice as often as men and feel they are most responsible when a romantic opportunity is lost. Psychologists have found women are raised in the US to believe that maintaining a relationship is their role in life and are  more likely to blame themselves when something goes wrong in a relationship.

Are you afraid to take a chance on love? Stop letting fear keep you down. Take a chance and tell that certain someone how you feel. What’s the worst thing that can happen? They don’t feel the same way as you do? So what, at least you will know that the feelings you have are a waste of time and you can move forward.

Regret can be a powerful tool if used correctly. We can learn from the things that we regret not doing. We can take a chance and get out there and try  to find love and stop pinning for the one we can’t have or the one we let get away.  Take a chance and try something new. You’ll REGRET it if you don’t.

Are you into Interracial Dating? Study says Yes And No?

Interesting article about interracial dating and places that it seems taboo. How do you feel about interracial dating? Common answer found..It’s okay for other people to do it but it’s not for me. Study after study finds that even in 2011 most people date within their own culture and race. People have preconceived ideas about races and ethnic groups that tend to steer them away or towards a group. Do we still judge people based on race? The answer seems to be yes.

If you are a singles and would like to date outside of your own ethnic group can you find a place online to do it? You can if you look to niche dating. Niche dating is a term used in the online dating industry used to define specialty dating. Say you like interracial dating, then you would need to find a dating site that caters to that need. They exist by the thousands and they are the best place to find people who are interested in interracial dating, sites like IvoryandEbonylove.com an interracial dating site for black and white singles looking for dating and relationships online.

Asian Singles have their own struggles with racism and stereotypical ideas about their race. Some people are attracted to those ideal while other spurn Asian singles for them. The same problems face Asian singles when it comes to online dating and a solution is to go to a niche made for Asian single daters. FindingAsianDates.com is an Asian dating site for Asian Singles and people interested in dating Asian singles. This is NOT an Asian bride site but a site for dating and meeting Asian singles from The US to all parts of the world where they might live.

Latin singles are in the same boat when it comes to beliefs about their culture. Those ideas about them as a group are a plus for some and a complete turn off to others. Mainstream online dating sites pose a problem for them too. Often they are overlooked by daters because they have preconceived ideas about dating Latino singles. Niche dating comes to the rescue again. Hispanic singles can join a site that caters to their race and culture and the people who are attracted to them. LatinoDatingNow.com is a Latino dating site for Latin singles and their admirers.

In this day and age you would think that racism in dating would no longer exist. It does still exist according to studies in that people accept interracial couples but just aren’t that open to dating outside their own ethnic group. Many things have changed as far as acceptance of interracial couples but there are still some old ideas hanging around too.

In Search of Mr Right…

Ever wished you could find the perfect man ? Someone who wanted to fulfill your ever wish or dream. A prince of a man who wanted nothing more than to make you happy. Are you so jaded after dating for so many years or after a nasty break-up that you doubt that such a man exists. Have you ever stopped to think that he maybe like Santa Claus in a way.  You stop believing in the magic so he no longer exists. You stopped writing to him and searching for him in the sky on Christmas Eve. Maybe you can’t find him because you no longer believe he is out there.

Bitterness can blind you if you let it . It can make you lose the ability to see someone delightful because you are too busy looking for the flaws. Disillusionment can turn you into an angry old spinster of a character. Rather certain Mr Right would be frightened off by her too. Maybe Mr Wonderful needs you to sit in his lap and tell him what it is you want and believe that he wants you to have it. You may wake up and find everything you had wished for right before your eyes. If you can still believe that Mr Right exists like you believed that Santa Claus did when you were a child.
