Love as we would like to know it, is something that germinates within us and gives us seemingly uncontrollable bursts of love and passion inside all of us. Ideally, it makes everything around us more interesting and desirable and we have new elevated feelings that unfolds and gives us insights into the world never imagined before. We know that love truly comes from the heart and many of us are still waiting in anticipation to bite into this forbidden apple. Can love be so overpowering and yet so distant? I fear not, and love can surely be induced by the will of the person.
We all like to romanticize love and throughout history we have fashioned couples who portray love in its most purest form such as Romeo & Juliet, Cleopatra & Mark Anthony, Lancelot and Guinevere and the list goes on. It seems that love has no boundaries and effectively the couples are so drenched with each other in love that all practicalities of life takes secondary precedence. The question is how long will this love be sustained and will a true measure of its omnipotence be until the dying days. Inevitably we characterize the zealous love between the two lovers with a tragic ending. Clearly the notions of fantastic love has no place on this earth.

No doubt all of us in some way strive towards such unbridled feelings that emancipates the very depth and soul of our body and says unto you ‘this is the real you’. Because of this innate nature in all of us, we can in fact have the capability and the capacity for love. However, this capacity will take on a whole new shape if the ‘love’ is not reciprocated. Let me give you examples, you like someone of the opposite sex and every being in your body says ‘it’s a good thing’. You let your heart take over and soon you are engaged in a love story all by yourself. If your partner happens to feel the same way, then you are in luck, however if he/she is skilled in the nuances of love and affection, you can find yourself ensnared in the love of your own making.
The point is that everyone has the ‘key’ to love and they can open it with whomever they wish but their selection is deeply rooted in their own personal feelings and trust with that individual. We live in a world where it’s moving at the speed of light and people are becoming less patient and more into their own lives. We need to pause and take a breath and rather than the physical world consuming the very energy inside of us, we need to step back and reflect. The world needs to become less square and more round for love to take on it’s original understanding and meaning that it always had.

What is the ‘free dating war’ you maybe asking yourself? Well, its a continued war that is going on behind the scenes of the internet from online dating sites all clamoring to get your attention. However, it is important for the many online singles to understand some of the tactics employed by these sites to lure you into signing up with them.
The first important fact is that some of the dating websites will not be up-front with regards to the costs associated with signing up to their membership plan. Their initial aim is to get you signed up and show you the members they have available for you to contact them and when you want to message a profile that you like, they will throw up a membership plan page. These online companies will rarely offer you the opportunity to browse the profiles that is available on their site prior to signing up with them. Once you are signed up to them, they may send potential matches based on the information you provided to them when you registered on the site.
With regards to the dating sites that are free, one of the early adopters Jumpdates.com made available to the public a searchable database and even had a newsletter where people could receive matches without joining the site. However, ‘scraping’ tools used by inconspicuous websites designed to ‘lift’ profiles from the dating sites have forced many of them to close off the ‘public view’ of the membership database. You may have heard of a case last year when a dating company was accused of scraping hundreds of thousands of Facebook profiles.
There are primarily two types of online dating categories, paid subscriptions based sites and of course the free dating sites. Jumpdates has completed an extensive analysis and review of all these major sites including many that you probably have not heard of. Included in the unbiased reviews are some major international sites that have gone from strength to strength. You don’t have to be too concerned with this dating war that is going on behind the scenes. Your best bet is to review a handful of sites before carefully hand-picking the sites that you want to join and use.

Here in the USA, language is often classed as not the eloquent delivery of it but rather its meaning and purpose. However, the way it’s spoken and delivery of the message can have its importance especially when you are trying to influence the many. In short, language in its purest form is to convey a sense of purpose and meaning to the recipient and in the areas of courtship and dating has special significance.
We have heard the same advice time and time again with regards to preparing for a date and that is to be yourself. However, for those who feel they don’t have the ‘gift of the gab’ may feel that communication may mar the outcome of the date. That is not entirely true and you need to be weighing up the eventful date as you traverse through it and not before. What this means, is that don’t make overbearing decisions as to the outcome of the date and you need to go with the flow. You may find that your other dating partner has similar qualms as yourself, or he/she is very much into you, you just don’t know. These will enable you to be a better communicator and take the lead and show yourself to be a true charismatic character in the moment of time.
In the language of love, sometimes language itself is not always needed. You may find that your partner is perfectly capable of doing many things that you were not able to do and vice versa. The communication part of language can come in many forms and disguises and one needs to be aware of this and the relationship will flourish without you even knowing it.

Today, we live in a multicultural society with so many people speaking very many different languages. This is very much in contrast to say other parts of the world say China or India where the language itself may have dialects but there is usually a predominant one which most people speak and understand. USA is a melting pot of many cultures and though English is the first language, there are many other spoken languages at work here. The English language itself has been turned upside down and we are now finding that we sometimes don’t even understand the English people! The result of the infusion of people from differing cultures has brought about some interesting dialects and interesting usage of the English language spoken by people whose first language is not English. Since the dating game in USA has many crossbreeds of people mixing and working together there is bound to be some communication issues. Here are some essential tips when you come across dates that don’t have English as their first language.
Apart from the obvious pronunciation difficulty of some words, there is a tendency for people to apply the English as spoken in their own natural language. For example they may say the action words first and then the person doing it ie. “he is doing it”, turns to “doing it is he”. This is much like the Yoda character in Star Wars where he would say things like ‘Decide you must, how to serve them best’. The general advice when you do come across your date mincing those words is to smile and be amused. If your date is a woman then you may go as far to say it’s a very likeable quality. Language is a funny thing and we have many people who are self-conscious of the way they speak especially if the person finds that other people to be ridiculing them whenever they speak. Unfortunately, the birth of the English Language which is the United Kingdom is often a culprit to this kind of profiling. However, over time as racial integration kicked in more people are now open to the nuances of the language as spoken by people of different cultures.
