5 Things A Man Does When He Has Fallen In Love

Some men are not known for their capability of expressing their emotions. It can be hard to make into words just exactly what the mind and heart are feeling.

For those men, they prefer to let their actions speak louder than their words.

Men are brought up in today's society with expectations that they become the pillars of support for friends, family and loved ones. Showing emotion isn't considered "manly" by our peers.

But, when we finally decide to bring down the walls and let a person in, we make sure they know how much they're loved.

Here are five things a man does when he's truly in love:

He loves his partner for who they are, not what they look like

Ironically enough, as the world shifts more towards superficial beauty and a hook-up style culture, more and more men are choosing women for who they are rather than who looks the best.

Men that have fallen for their partners embrace them in every way. They've fallen in love with each and every flaw or imperfection they have, and want nothing more than to support that person's dreams.

He protects his partner

Men who are truly in love are always on guard of their partner, making sure both physical and emotional harm never reach their loved one. They're always ready to stand in harm's way if it means the safety of their partner.

Additionally, they never ever think to hit or abuse the people they love.

He wants to know your opinion

Men that love their partners always value what they have to say. Whether it's an extreme political view or a stance on religion or what color to paint the living room, he's always willing to hear your side of things.

He goes out of his way for you

A man who is in love will almost always drop whatever he's doing if his partner needs help. You're easily his top priority, and if there's any way he can fix your problem he's going to do it. This could mean walking across town to get something you left at home or simply leaving a party early because you'd rather be somewhere else.

He's confident enough to let you live your own life

A theme that commonly happens in long-term relationships is codependency. Some men struggle when their partners don't spend every single second with them. If a man truly loves you, then he'll be okay with you spending time with other people, whether it be girlfriends or coworkers.

He recognizes that we all need time to be independent and practice the things that make us who we are.

5 Different Types of Soul Mates Everyone Encounters In Their Lives

A lot of people think 'soul mate' is a term used to describe that one person that's a perfect match for them, but the truth is that soul mates actually come in all sorts of shapes and sizes.

And while not all of them are romantic, all of them have a significant influence in our lives in one way or another.

Some soul mates are only with you for a brief second, others are with you for a lifetime, but you'll undoubtedly remember all of them, as they all come into your life for a specific reason.

Here are five types of soul mates you will meet and learn to love in your lifetime:

Friendship Soul Mate

This person is often your best friend in life. It's someone you met and instantly knew that the two of you would become lifelong friends, because it already feels like you've been friends your entire life.

This is the person you can talk to for hours and who always has your back because they often understand you better than you do.

This soul mate is here for the long haul, so be sure to nurture the relationship and never take it for granted.

The Wrecking Ball Soul Mate

This type of soul mate comes into your life with one purpose: to rock the boat. They come into your life when you're in need of a change of perspective, challenging us to really think about our life and our plans.

You'll know when this soul mate has entered your life because they come in like a hurricane of love and passion. One that you willingly get swept up in because you've never felt such a rush.

But, just as the storm passes, leaving behind nothing but debris, so does this soul mate. The only difference is that you grow into a different person using the remnants of the relationship as a foundation.

The Lover / Affair Soul Mate

These soul mates make their way into our lives to teach us something that will be valuable later on in life. They could be a first love, a hidden affair while with someone else, or just a passionate, friends-with-benefits type of situation.

These relationships slowly grow and build into something significant over time. And because you both taught each other so much, your bond will not dissipate anytime soon. These soul mates often stay as friends for quite sometime.

Stranger Soul Mate

The stranger soul mate is someone you typically meet randomly on a flight, bus ride, at a party or just walking down the street. You'll immediately feel as though you recognize this person, even if you can't remember from where. If you're the type to believe in past lives, this person could be someone you've met in your past.

While your interaction with each other is brief, you both have words of wisdom that the other person needs to hear. Whether it's validation or a nudge in the right direction, it's always intimate.

Divine Love Soul Mate

This soul mate is the one that most people are referring to when they use the term 'soul mate.' It's the one that every person strives to find in life, because if we're lucky enough to find them, it usually means we're destined to spend life together.

These soul mates are the culmination of every other soul mate listed above. Instantly recognizing one another, feeling like you've known them forever, the compassionate friendship, and of course, the deeply passionate, miraculous kind of love you've never experienced before.

6 Reasons NEED To Have Sex On A Daily Basis

As if you needed anymore incentive to be having sex, there are actually a myriad of health benefits you gain when you regularly engage in physical intimacy with a partner.

Of course orgasms are great, and playing with a partner is always fun, but when you routinely jump in the sack to release sexual energy, your mental, emotional, and physical well-being get a much needed boost.

Here are six great reasons to be having sex regularly:

It fortifies the immune system

When you're having sex on a regular basis, your body naturally produces more Immunoglobulin A, an antibody that plays a vital role in the immune system's functionality.

This means your body has a better chance to fight off sickness, which is perfect come flu season. Build up those antibodies by having sex.

Improved emotional health

Sex, by nature, is extremely intimate and physical. This means that you don't need to be having sex with a significant other to create an emotional connection with another person.

Love is something that often grows from sex, but it's not required to share that closeness with someone. Physical intimacy floods the brain with feel-good hormones, immediately shifting your perception of reality in a positive way.

You can learn to have multiple orgasms

While most people think that only women are capable of achieving multiple orgasms, men can learn to do it as well.

The Kinsey Institute reports that about 20% of men, and 14% of women, have the ability to orgasm multiple times. Are you part of the lucky bunch that gets off several times?

It works your body physically

Exercise has been the clear answer to getting in shape and being healthy for decades now. It can be difficult to get motivated to go to the gym, but motivation to have sex usually comes naturally.

When you have sex, you typically build up your cardiovascular stamina, as well as muscles in the back, legs, hips, and abdominals. Shed a few extra pounds and improve balance by regularly having sex.

Practice makes perfect

Just as with most anything in life, practicing sex on a routine basis helps you get better at it. For men, this can mean lasting longer, which in turn helps women achieve their orgasm.

For women, it can often mean learning how to orgasm faster or easier. Whatever your specific benefit is, two people working at sex everyday will naturally become better at it.

It helps keep you young

Dr. David Weeks surveyed 3500 people and discovered that everyone reported sex as being the "most intense kind of pleasure."

He also found that sex stimulates the production of certain chemicals in the body. Routine, loving sex was seen as the second most important factor when it came to retaining youth, just behind physical and mental activity.

4 Common Manipulation Techniques Used By Toxic People

You are likely to meet quite a bit of people in your lifetime, and not all of them are going to have a positive effect on you. Certain people find a way to manipulate their way into your life just to fill you with self doubt.

What makes the presence of these toxic even worse, is that often times you don't even realize they have worked their way into your life until it's too late.

It may even be someone who has become very close to you like a co worker, your partner, or one of your best friends. These people have a variety of manipulation techniques that they use to maintain control of your life.

However, making yourself aware of some of their tactics could make them easier for you to see through, and break free from their manipulative spell. Let's take a look at a few of the most popular ones.

1. They find a way to make everything your fault.

You can try as hard as you want, but people like this will always find a way to put the blame back on you.

If you tell a toxic person something critical they are likely to respond with a harsh, uncalled for attack on your character. It can start feeling like an infinite game of hot potato throwing the blame back and forth to each other.

2. They knew you were going to do say that.

Another way toxic people attempt to manipulate you is by trying to convince you that they've got you all figured out. Everything you do has just become so predictable to them.

When they start saying things like "I knew you were going to say that," "I don't know why I should be surprised," they are just trying to find a way to get into your head without using any reasoning or logic.

3. Making a word salad.

This tactic seems to be a favorite among toxic people to get around questions that they don't want to answer. To do this they often give long complex answers that end up confusing you, rather than giving you the answer you wanted.

To find out if some one is doing this to you stay focused on what they were saying, and see if they stay on one topic, or constantly bounce around to random things that are unimportant and unrelated to the conversation.

4. The three stages of gaslighting.

The process of manipulating another person to the point that they begin questioning their sanity, and even their own rights is known as gaslighting and is presented in three different stages.

The toxic person begins by doing something to put their victim in an uncomfortable situation, known as the disbelief stage, in order to make them enter the disbelief stage.

Once the victim reacts to the unusual behavior, the toxic individual will often tell them that they are "acting crazy," or "being over emotional."

If they keep it up for long enough the victim will actually begin to believe that are acting overly emotional and crazy, which eventually leads to the depression stage.

6 Perfect Comebacks For Dealing With Arrogant People

Arrogant people make for some of the most unpleasant folks to be around. They don't just think they're better than you, they act as if they know they're better than you.

They also share a few traits and characteristics with narcissists, including believing that they are unique and only understood by high-status people, always being expectant of admiration from others, a large degree of entitlement, and a lack of empathy.

Their condescending attitudes and behaviors can make other people angry and put off by them, but you don't have to let these people bring you down.

Those who stand up to arrogance are seen as having integrity, as they're not going to just let someone disrespect them.

Here are six great comebacks when dealing arrogant people:

'What makes you say that?'

This question simply asks the arrogant person to reflect on why they're generalizing, insulting or stereotyping a person.

Hopefully, the arrogant person will recognize that they've said something negative and in poor taste and quit their behavior.

'Ouch' or 'That one hurt'

Arrogant people have a knack for hurting other people's feelings. They may or may not show empathy, but they definitely understand what it means to make someone feel crappy.

Tell them that they're hurting you emotionally, don't be afraid. At least they will become aware of the fact that they're doing damage; they might even try to stop.

'That's not the only way of seeing things'

Of course, everyone in the free world has the right to voice their opinion and thoughts, but it's obviously incredibly naive and foolish to think that only one way of thinking (or one opinion) is some kind of universal truth.

Let the arrogant person know that others do not share their negative outlook on the world.

'That sounded kind of arrogant, I'm sure you meant it another way'

This shows the arrogant person that you want to give them the benefit of the doubt and believe they're good-intentioned.

In fact, you actually give them a chance to save face by reiterating what they meant in a kinder way while simultaneously letting them know you won't be pushed around.

'Did you know, my mother is actually _____?'

When an arrogant person starts to belittle a group of people, try to turn it back around on them by saying you have a relative or sibling who is of that group of people.

They only do this so they can appear to be higher status. Shock them a bit by letting them know how close it hits to home. This tells them that they're also insulting you now. They'll usually apologize and try to move on.

'I'd appreciate it if we stopped talking about this now'

Just as the arrogant person has rudely steamrolled the entire conversation, you can rudely put an end to it.

Arrogant folks like to talk and talk, so sometimes it's very necessary to simply end the conversation before it derails into something else entirely.

This Is Why People Keep Breaking Your Heart, According To Your Zodiac Sign

Relationships end for a host of different reasons. We tend to have trouble wrapping our minds around why our hearts keep getting broken. Is it me? Is it them?

It's hard to know for sure. But your zodiac sign can certainly point you in the direction of figuring out why it is your heart keeps getting broken time and time again.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Aries is definitely a sign that's kind at heart, but that kindness doesn't always make itself known to others. You can come across as being self-interested, independent to a fault, and uninterested in long-term commitment and sharing anything in your life. This can be a real problem when being pursued seriously by a potential partner.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus is a loyal friend but is also stubborn as heck. You have trouble letting things go and often stay mad about things way longer than is needed.

Even if your partner is wrong and apologizes, you let that anger keep boiling. That's enough to push any lover away from you for good.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Gemini are the free spirits, the Coachella-going Phish-following zodiac sign. You can be difficult to convince to be committed, and even once committed, you tend to just kinda go off and do your own thing anyway.

This can be incredibly off-putting to your partner. Consider your partners' needs before you change your relationship status. Are you really ready for this?

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Cancer is a caretaker and, while they can rely on themselves fairly well, in a relationship they tend to get clingy and smother their partner.

It's a kind of passion that isn't always enjoyed or even wanted. You need to think about the kind of space that is important to your partner and grant it to them.

6 Signs You Have Finally Found Your True Soul Mate

We have a certain feeling inside of us that we are completely unable to describe and we only have this certain kind of feeling whenever we are with them specifically.

There aren't any words that you can say that would give the feeling any justice, it's just something that you have to feel for yourself.

Not everyone is able to find this kind of feeling for another person or ever sometimes depending on who you are. If you think you have found that amazing other person then you already know what this means to you.

You're probably thinking about them the more you continue reading this. That's how powerful this feeling is, even when you're not trying to think about them you just are subconsciously.

Here are 6 signs that mean you have found the one true soul mate that was meant for you.

1. You Overcome Everything Together

When you find your true soul mate, there isn't anything that the both of you aren't able of overcoming together. Sure, there are a lot of hardships or adversity that may have stuck obstacles in your way, but you both somehow managed to pull everything back together even when you both may have thought that there was no coming back from this.

You would never find yourself in a situation where you'd think you'd have to leave the other person in order to satisfy a piece of their happiness that maybe you weren't living up too.

Despite the many challenges that have been brought before your relationship, you both took a stand and made sure that the two of you were going to be the last ones standing.

2. You Can Read Each Other's Minds

Maybe not literally reading each others minds, but you both know each other so well that you pretty much already know what they are going to say, what they want, what they need, what they were going to do, anything.

This is another way of knowing that you have your one true soul mate. Even when you didn't even ask them for anything at all, they still somehow read your mind and bring you the thing that you were needing most in that moment in time.

It comes naturally, not even trying to be close to each other, you both just know what's going to happen next because it makes you both happy.

3. Still Yourselves

Regardless of being each other's one true soul mate, you both have not lost yourselves to one another. Meaning that you're still the same personality type that you were when you first began being together.

Of course, you both have probably made a lot of changes over the years, but your still the same people that when you first fell in love.

This doesn't happen in a lot of relationships and in fact some people lose themselves to the other person entirely. It's important that you maintain this kind of bond with each other and not try to become something that either of you are not. Honesty is a very key element to any type of relationship.

4. Vivid Dreams About Them

There may even be times where you begin to dream about your true soul mate. Your love for them is so powerful that you are literally constantly thinking about them even when you're asleep.

These dreams can be extremely vivid and put in just the right atmosphere. Of course, it is your brain so you would hope that you would go to a happy place whenever you think about your soul mate. Who know's you might have been dreaming about them this entire time and didn't even know it until just now.

5. You're Both Exploring Everything

When you find your true soul mate, there is an overwhelming sense of adventure that sweeps over the both of you. This feeling that resonates inside you propels you both into doing things that you might not have ever saw yourself doing before.

This is one of the signs when you know you've found a love so pure that you both can do anything in the entire world and you'd still both have an undying love for one another. You'll probably go traveling together a lot, find new places that you've never seen before, meet new friends together, and everything in between. Your love fuels the ship and you both are the captains.

6. You Operate Better When They Are With You

Another huge sign that you have found your true soul mate is when they leave for a long period of time and find yourself not being able to do as well with things as you thought you could.

For you, being away from your true soul mate is almost like giving yourself the biggest distraction from everything else that's going on in your life.

It's not like you don't care about the things you're doing but that you would just be a lot better off if your soul mate came back to you once more. Their presence has a strong impact on the things you do because while you're doing all of those things you're thinking of them. This is what true love looks like for soul mates.

5 Ways Your Partner Is Trying To Manipulate Your Emotions

Sometimes finding the right partner is an incredibly hard thing to do, especially when your confidence isn't exactly plentiful and your sense of self-worth is lacking.

When we see ourselves as not worthy of love, we tend to pick partners who are incredibly wrong for us.

Partners who abuse us, manipulate us, hurt us, and degrade us--all because they're toxic people and we don't think we deserve any better.

Well, we do deserve better. Everyone on this planet is worthy of true, unconditional love. Unfortunately, it's not always obvious to us when we're being abused (because we think it's normal).

If your partner does any of these five things, he or she is an emotional psychopath and you need to think about ditching the relationship altogether.

They have a tendency to 'gaslight' you

Gaslighting is a term that refers to when an abuser purposely lies about things or spins information to make you question your reality.

The term comes from a 1938 stage play in which a husband "attempts to convince his wife and others that she is insane by manipulating small elements of their environment and insisting that she is mistaken, remembering things incorrectly, or delusional when she points out these changes."

If your partner denies any and all wrongdoing by simply shifting the blame onto you, they're just trying to make you doubt yourself so that they can continue to abuse your trust.

They degrade and demean you

Most emotional psychopaths are broken on the inside. It's their own insecurity and lack of self-esteem that makes them want to bring others down to their level.

They will try to break your spirit and make you feel worthless so that they can influence your thoughts and behaviors. This makes you think that you need them more than you really do.

They like to shift the blame to you

Emotional psychopaths aren't keen on being held accountable for any of their poor behaviors, which usually means that it's always someone else's fault.

They like to put on a charismatic and charming persona when shifting blame. They could talk about whatever problem the two of you are having, but instead they simply say it's your fault and call it a day.

Their own poor circumstances aren't their fault, either

Just as they like to make you think that every fight and argument you've ever had is your fault, they also like to make you think that their own crappy life problems are because of things that you do.

If they're not doing well at their job, it's your fault. If they somehow found themselves in jail, it's your fault. They wasted all of their money? Your fault again.

They try to keep you away from others who might realize what's happening

Abusers know that not everyone is weak and easily manipulated like their partners.

So, when their partners start talking to others about what's going on in the relationship, there's a good chance someone else will figure out what's going on. And they can't be having that.

If your partner regularly tells you to stay away from friends and family members, it's because they're trying to keep you away from anyone who will disrupt their abusive tendencies.

They will turn you against your friends and family, just so they can keep you under their reign of terror.

Discover Who You Are Most Compatible With, According To Your Zodiac Sign

Here is a list of the 12 zodiac signs that make the perfect couples.

1. Aries and Aquarius

The relationship between an Aries and an Aquarius is built on the adventurous nature of both of these signs. Not only is each sign pretty much always willing to try something new, they also enjoy having a partner for their grand, spontaneous adventures.

While other couples' relationships will grow stale with time, the same cannot be said for the Aries and Aquarius.

2. Taurus and Cancer

The Taurus and the Cancer share an intense bond with one another on both a physical and emotional level. These are two signs that seem to just understand one another without having to dig deep, even though that's what eventually happens as their relationship flourishes over time.

They are always grateful for each other, showing appreciation even when it's not necessary, which often sees them sharing a love that stands the test of time.

3. Gemini and Aquarius

These two signs share a bond that thrives on intelligence and creativity. This couple enjoys a strong emotional link that is made even stronger by accepting one another's ideas.

And while the Gemini and Aquarius prefer to spend every single second with each other, they both enjoy having their independence. Each partner recognizes that their independence only brings the two of them closer together.

4. Cancer and Pisces

The relationship of the Cancer and the Pisces is strong and passionate simply because they accept one another for who each person is.

Each person knows who they are and where they stand, and the other isn't keen on trying to change that. In fact, they love them more so because of it.

With the Pisces' need to connect with those around them, and the Cancer's need to nurture those around them, it's a match made in heaven.

Each Zodiac Sign Is Romantic In A Different Way. How Do You Express Love?

Everyone is a little bit different, and one of the ways we see those differences manifest is in our zodiac signs. Each zodiac has unique traits, at least to that particular sign.

Each sign, of course, has hundreds of millions, if not billions, of people in it. One way our signs set us apart is in how we show love and affection.

Each sign does it a little differently. Here's how:

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Aries is the first and most stoic of the signs on this list. They tend to be dry and seemingly humorless, but don't worry, they're still a lot of fun.

Their idea of flirting is using sarcasm and ridiculing you. But don't take it too personally. With an Aries, these are good signs.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus is the most analytical, observant, and perhaps cynical of the signs. They tend to be very straight forward with their feelings, not simply stating that they like you, but why too.

They tend to find real specific things about you they adore. They may not compliment you very often, but don't worry. They still love you.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis are sometimes stubborn, but still light hearted and fun to be around. Even though they may not find you romantically interesting, they don't shy away from a little friendly cuddling or flirting.

Often times, they'll just come right out and say they like you. They don't deal with real serious friendship too well.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers are the caregivers of the signs and easily the most romantic. I'm talking old school romantic. They like sending flowers and gifts and writing little notes.

They're the ones who remember your birthday, your parents' birthday; even your pet iguana's birthday. They're kinda nuts like that.

6 Things You'll Learn While Everyone Else Is Busy Getting Married

Your "type" will change as you do

People always say your twenties are your years for experimenting and figuring out just what it is you want in a partner. As we get older, our values in a partner start to realign more with our own values and goals in life.

A crazy, passionate sex-fueled relationship might be ideal when you're young, but as you get older you might want someone who is more stable, honest and supportive of your ambitions in life.

You have more time to figure out the career path right for you

Those who aren't keen on jumping into marriage in their twenties learn to derive validation from places other than their relationships and partners.

A big part of this is building a career that motivates you to always be learning and growing. You'll be happier for it and won't rely so much on a relationship for your happiness or well-being.

You create strong bonds with friends

When you're not in a relationship, you have a lot of time to strengthen your bond with friends. These are the people you want to be there for you when things start going wrong in life.

They're your support system. If you pick good ones, you'll never be lacking someone to lean on when you need a pillar of support.
