You’ve seen them in films—those women who exude confidence, who have a strong-willed personality, who can pay for their own clothes and bills, and those who love life in general—yes, I’m talking about the independent woman.
The independent woman is coming out of her shell as time goes by, and I can’t help but admire them because of their passion and perseverance. These women aren’t the kind who’d throw a fit when they don’t get their things their way, but instead keep on finding ways to improve their situation and work things out. They are your everyday warriors—be it in the office, at home, or both—and they still manage to make themselves look good while they’re at it.
Some time in May I was able to stumble upon a DTC Water to Wine live event that had Michael D’Amari promoting his book: “Woman Hold the Power”. This guy had a lot of interesting things to say, so I immediately searched YouTube for more of his videos. Here’s one in which D’Amari is explaining why men get intimidated by independent women. I say that it’s making a lot of sense, as seen from a man and a woman’s perspective:
Quite refreshing, isn’t it? But no matter what is being said, it all boils down to this– having an independent woman on your side means your relationship is more likely to grow more every day—and here’s why.
They know what they want. What sets the independent woman from the rest is that they truly know what they want AND know how to get it on their own. In dating, this is always good, because there’s no need for you to decipher what she wants from you. She will most likely tell it to you in a very direct but tactful way, so don’t act surprised if she will give you pointers on how to do it right the next time. Trust me—it’s all for the better.
They won’t give up that easily. Most independent women are successful in their own ways. They have, probably exerted a little more effort in order for them to reach that top position in that reputable company. In short, they are go-getters—they don’t simply back down. This rings true in romance and relationships, too.
They will help you reach your goals. These women are the best motivators. Chances are, they will be attracted to you because you have that same independent vibe they also possess, because as they say—like attracts like. She will help you persevere to reach your goals, those little wants that you’ve wanted to do for the past couple of years now. She’s probably going to help you cross out some items off your bucket list. Win-win.
Times are indeed changing as we become surrounded by beautiful and independent women. Don’t get intimidated, nor see it as a challenge. In fact, dating strong and independent women should be treated as a blessing—there’s no room for boredom, only growth, and more passion.
Hello there, fellow romantics. I have something interesting for you to read today. Why? Because this topic is universal and very real– it’s all about being broke. Or, to sugarcoat it ever so lightly– this post is about keeping love alive despite being “financially challenged.”
Hustling? Not this time
You know how it is when you’re broke. You also know how women are usually difficult to please. Despite this, there are still ways to capture a woman’s heart, which even we who are broke can use. If you are a financially challenged guy wondering how to meet women and make them like you quickly, follow these simple tips:
Don’t worry too much, to most women, money is not everything! If you think that the easiest way to please a woman is to flaunt your wealth, then you are badly mistaken. Although it helps to have a lot of money, your riches are just tiny dots in a woman’s universe. Women are generally more attracted to certain desirable traits such as confidence, kindness, sincerity, and loyalty. The old song that says “can’t buy me love” conveys this truth perfectly.
Be creative to avoid the expensive! If you’re thinking of having dinner together, why not invite her for a dinner you have cooked for her at home? She is sure to appreciate that more than dinner expensive restaurant, because it involves personal effort. Pull out all the stops in decorating the dinner table – use your best table cloths, silverware and make sure there are candles and a chilled bottle of wine. That should set you back just a fifth of what it would cost at a restaurant!
Find ways to show how thoughtful you are! There is nothing more thoughtful than calling her in the morning and greeting her to let her know that you’ve missed her – terribly in fact. Be the consummate gentleman when with her; open doors, pull out seats and be very attentive to her every need.
Always have a plan B! To avoid disappointing your date, you need to be prepared with alternatives to your original plan to ensure the day is not wasted if something suddenly changes. If you’re going to a movie, prepare a backup activity should there be a hitch; for example you can watch movies at home or play board and card games.
Flowers and chocolates need not break the bank. Sure, ladies like both flowers and chocolates, but these don’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. She’ll appreciate flowers you personally picked from the garden as much, if not more, than a store bought bouquet. And you need not give her a big box of chocolates to make her happy. Giving her just a bar of chocolate (just make sure it is not of the cheap variety) will give her as much joy – remember that it is the thought that counts!
Write (don’t print) love letters! Technology has almost erased the need for manual, sometimes called cursive, writing. But a handwritten love letter has more impact to a girl than the most expensive greeting card because they appreciate the personal effort involved.
Keeping your relationship alive does not always require a lot of money; in most cases, all it needs is loads of effort on your part to make it work!

Comments are off for this post
First, enjoy this performance by the eternal band of lovebirds, Emperor!
Although back in the day it might have been surprising to see a guy and a girl going home together after meeting at a bar or a club, things are a bit different now. In fact, people now put a lot of effort into dressing up and looking good when they go out, hoping to connect with someone special.
If you think learning to get a girl to go home with you is difficult, you are in for a big surprise! Sometimes all you need to show is enough confidence plus a bit of sincerity. You also need to make your move the minute you find a girl you are interested in, because, chances are, if you hesitate, other guys may get her attention before you do. Sometimes, you have to know [how to be a flirt]!
Remember that you are likely to find a lot of competition for the most attractive ones. You will have better chances for success if you have come prepared. Dress appropriately; get your shoes shined, and your hair trimmed. And don’t forget to make sure you smell nice – your scent (or stink) can make or break your night. Learn the trade– go to a dating seminar if you have to. But in the meantime, read on for some tips on how to get a girl to go home with you.
Plan the perfect first impression.
Since you only have one chance to actually make a good first impression so you better get it right. Look at her and decide, based on her attire and general appearance, what line would work best.
I cannot over-emphasize the need for you to look and smell clean. In addition, to elicit a truly positive impression, you must be the consummate gentleman showering all of your attention on her; straying eyes while talking to her is a big no-no.
Learn effective methods of hypnosis.
Not a lot of guys have the balls to try out methods of hypnosis, but if you want to learn how to get a girl to go home with you, then these methods would be highly effective in that department. In fact, hypnosis is so powerful that, once you master it, you will be able to get any girl of your choice fall for you in less than 15 minutes – believe it.
Find a something you can do together.
Find something you share in common with the girl you are interested in. If she loves dancing, take her to the dance floor and dance as long as she wants. Maybe she’s into long conversations; if that is the case you can spend time intently listening to what she has to say. The idea is to make her feel that you are on the same wavelength, which you can later use to create the beginnings of a deeper bond between you.
I hope this helps you connect with the girl you are attracted to. Feel free to read the other posts in this blog for more information on the subject of dating and relationships.
