A recent survey out of the U.K. shows that women—at least most women—have a pretty good grasp on the important relationships in their lives: Four out of five have a good bond with their partner, 81 percent say they have good or very good friendships, and 59 percent get along with their bosses. But two stats jumped out at us as cause for concern: One in 10 women reported that they don’t have a close friend, and a very lonely 3 percent reported having no friends at all.
Sure, it’s normal for friendships to come and go, especially as we get older and swept up in work, family matters, and personal issues. And these days, we probably all have many more casual acquaintances (think of all your Facebook “friends”) than true BFFs. But what kind of an effect can this have on a person’s health and wellbeing?
Judith Akin, M.D., a psychiatrist in the Faculty and Physician Wellness Program of Work/Life Connections at Vanderbilt University, says that when people can’t name a single close friend, it’s often because of an underlying emotional or social disorder, like anxiety or trust issues. It also puts them at risk for further health problems.
“Having at least a few close relationships is a part of a balanced life,” Akin says. “People who are socially isolated or lacking in social support are much more vulnerable to depression, self-medicating with alcohol, and emotional eating.” Studies also show that people with large circles of friends live longer than those without, and that strong social ties can reduce the risk of dementia later in life.
The nearly 6,000-person survey conducted by Relate (a British organization that provides relationship support and counseling) also found that having poor-quality or non-existent social connections is correlated to lower self esteem. Among people who described their friendships as good or very good, 87 percent said they felt good about themselves sometimes, often, or always. Among people in average or bad friendships, that number dropped to 63 percent; and among those who reported having no friends, 62 percent.
Although forming new friendships can be difficult, Akin says it’s important for people to try—especially if they’re feeling isolated after a move across the country, a falling-out with former pals, or another major life change that leaves them physically or emotionally alone.
“To have friends you have to be a good friend, so I always ask people what they are doing to try to cultivate relationships support,” she says. “You have to make a deliberate effort to spend time together—or, if you don’t live near each other, to call or write or visit.” (In fact, half of survey respondents reported having weekly contact with their close friends, and nearly a fifth reported daily contact.)
Nervous about making a new-friend date? Start with asking a colleague to grab lunch or check out a movie after work. “If you’re worried about not knowing what to say, these structured situations can help take the pressure off,” Akin says.
Common-interest groups are great ways to meet a variety of people who share your hobbies, as well, she says. In a way, men seem to do this better than women: The survey found that guys tend to be members of groups of close friends while women are more likely to form close connections with individuals.
And one final note for the ladies in relationships: It’s great if your partner is your best friend, says Akin, but it’s no excuse to let your other close ties don’t fall by the wayside. “Too much time spent with one person can potentially make you both bored,” she says. “You need to make a deliberate effort to get together regularly with other people in your life. Put a girls’ night on the calendar; don’t wait for someone else to do it.”
Don’t assume he is not in love with you. The one time you least expect, he will tell you “I love you.”
One of the greatest feelings a woman can ever have is a man’s true love. Though your boyfriend may take time telling you he is in love with you, chances are he already has through his actions. That’s what happened to me. I knew my husband was in love with me by the way he paid close attention to all my needs. He genuinely cared to hear about my good days and my bad days. Moreover, I didn’t have to ask him to do something for me. He just knew. He loved spending time with my family and me. And he said “I love you” first.
For the most part, women are quicker at expressing their emotions to their partners; meanwhile, men take a longer time. You may assume that your boyfriend is not in love with you because he has not verbally expressed his feelings or revealed the three words all women love to hear. But take a close look at his gestures, his mannerisms and how he looks at you. The love he has for you is in the tiniest details.
Here are seven ways you can tell the man you love is in love with you, too.
When your boyfriend starts to ask you in-depth questions about your likes, dislikes and future goals, he is in to you. He wants to learn everything about you. He sincerely cares.
He grabs your hand gently during a walk in the park or at a family gathering. He caresses your hair softly. He hugs you for no reason at all. He affectionately touches your face as he stares at you. Sometimes just sitting at home watching a movie and cuddling on the couch speaks volumes.
Spending time together
When you find your boyfriend spending less time with his friends and more time with you, he is in love. He is not giving up on his friends; he simply chooses to spend as much time with you as possible. His priorities begin to shift.
Does anything for you
He doesn’t care what it takes, but he will make anything possible for you. He may not necessarily be interested in the things you are interested in, but he makes the effort to take part. He doesn’t mock what brings you joy. Perhaps you love a particular musician, and he doesn’t. But he surprises you with two concert tickets – one for you and one for him.
Meeting his family and friends
As old-fashioned as this may sound, when a boyfriend introduces the woman in his life to his family and friends, he is serious. He has hopes to take the relationship to another level. His feelings are deeper than you know.
Talks about marriage and children
If your boyfriend inquires about your feelings on marriage and children and expresses his thoughts on the matter, chances are he’s been thinking about a future with you. And if you both share the same feelings about marriage and creating a beautiful family together, love exists.
Says those three special words first
He tells you “I love you” before you do. It doesn’t matter when or where he says it. All that matters is that he wants to say it first.
Again, it’s easier for a woman to share her innermost thoughts compare to most men. Many men have a hard time verbalizing their feelings even though they do love you. However, through their positive actions and attentive ways, you will know he is in love. Give him time and you’ll hear “I love you.”
Each day, we interact with others. We talk, email and text the day away, but are we really getting through to each other? When was the last time you felt really, truly heard? When did you give your attention to someone fully and completely without checking your phone or staring at the television? Some check out with technology, while others dominate conversations. Both are detrimental, but both can be remedied.
The importance of listening
When we listen to someone sincerely, we help them feel understood, validated and less alone in their suffering. Being fully present and listening without an agenda can uplift someone and permit them to share their feelings. Often, that’s all we need; someone to sit and let us air our grievances, concerns, or frustrations, so that we can move on.
We blather on to hairdressers, bartenders, baristas, and they hold the space as outsiders looking in, so that we may vent. Therapists are paid to sit there and our side of the story, but what about our daily communication with loved ones? What happens when the you-know-what hits the fan and you have a fight with your partner?
Leave judgement at the door
Therapists and counsellors note that the most important part of listening is being non-judgmental. If someone feels judged, they will instantly shut you out and resent you, causing further harm to the relationship. Distance comes from instances like this, so be careful to just let the other person be heard in a safe, judgment-free zone. Avoid statements such as “You always” and “You never.”
Sometimes, things cannot be fixed immediately, so allow a few hours of time apart and let things cool down. When you keep picking at a wound or a scab, it can’t heal. The same thing applies to disagreements and conflicts; even though you think it’s a good idea to keep talking, the best thing can be to calmly stop talking and give each other a little space. When you sit quietly, you’re able to process what the other person voiced so that you can help solve the issues—not create more.
Stay present and watch your body language
Some of us check out with phones, laptops or television when things get heated or intense. The simple act of making eye contact really makes a huge difference in how we all feel when we need someone’s full attention. Please put your phone down, turn it off and make yourself 100% available when a loved one needs to talk. Don’t make someone feel diminished or unimportant by clicking the remote control when they say they need to talk to you.
Wait until they communicate that they’re done before grabbing that phone to see what you missed on social media, and try not to fidget. We say a lot with our body language, so show some empathy and presence with your entire body. It’s incredibly rude to text someone while a person in the room needs your attention, so cut it out.
Silence is golden
This one is particularly challenging for me. I get excited and jump in before the other person has time to complete their thought or argument, and I botch it all the time—I can only imagine how infuriating it must be. As a yoga instructor, this is embarrassing to share, but at least I’m honest.
Most people think that just because I teach yoga, I’m perfectly conditioned to remain in a meditative, balanced state at all times. Not so much, I’m afraid. I get anxious and angry, but do try to maintain the daily work via yoga, meditation, and reading Buddhist and other spiritual texts. My new goal is to really hold my tongue until the person with whom I’m interacting is done with their statement. Give the other person time to get their thoughts out, stop interrupting, and let people finish their thoughts. You’ll get your turn to speak, but create a safe and present energy so that there’ll be room for your own thoughts later on.
Listen to the entire conversation
Really, in the end, most of us just want to be heard, even if we have a strong hunch that we’re wrong. It sounds like the simplest, easiest thing on earth, but try to listen to the whole story and let the other party talk. My issue is that I’m already building my case or argument while the other person is trying to get theirs out, and it’s always doomed from that point on.
Work on being patient, commit to breathing deeply when someone is trying to tell you something, and just hold the space for them. Be sure to let people tell their whole story and get it all out there—even if it’s unpleasant or directed at you. Healing can only come from letting each other feel safe and loved.
In the end, my Buddhist teachers say that life is suffering and it’s our duty to lessen the suffering of those with whom we interact. I don’t wake up in the morning saying “I’m going to be a terrible listener today” but still, it happens. All we can do is commit to lessening our loved one’s suffering, become better listeners and increase our compassion as we go about our lives.
Think of the most valuable people in your life: what makes them so special? Meaningful relationships, both with family and friends, make life purposeful—especially amidst difficult trials. However, there are some people who may appear to be friendly but in fact are negative influences in your life. It’s important to keep in mind that you deserve to be in relationships where you are valued for who you are, and where the other person treats you in a way that you would want to treat others. As relationships require mutual effort and dedication, here
are 12 characteristics to look for in a good friend (along with tips that will help you showcase these characteristics to your friends).
A good friend will stay in touch with you in the long-term, even if you don’t get to talk to them every day. Good friends will be able to pick up where they left off, without seeing each other for years! Whether it’s through texts, handwritten letters or phone calls, communication over a long period of time is a key signal that someone truly cares about you and the relationship. With the holidays coming up, sending a holiday card or wishing someone well is a simple yet impactful gesture that demonstrates thoughtfulness.
In addition to staying connected, a good friend will check up on you to stay informed on what’s happening in your life. Whether your latest news is inconsequential (like trying a new recipe) or more significant (like grieving the death of a loved one), a friend who checks up on you is one who is compassionate and genuinely interested.
While we all like it when others agree with us, but it’s necessary to have people who can provide open, honest feedback—both positive and negative. The key is that a true friend can present their criticism in a constructive way.
Similarly, a good friend is able to respectfully disagree with your views. The emergence of different perspectives does not automatically signify the end of a relationship—sometimes, it can actually strengthen your relationship while enhancing your understanding of an opposing perspective. A good friend will also demonstrate respect by appreciating you for who you are, treating you with dignity and not taking advantage of you.
Not only should you be able to confide in a friend and know that your secret will be kept, but you should also be able to trust that your friend is loyal and reliable. A friendship that experiences endless rollercoasters of breakups and fights may not be one that offers loyalty and consistency.
6. Enthusiasm and support
It’s important to have relationships with people who will provide you with support in both the good and the bad times. Friends who make the extra effort to cheer you on at your soccer game or reach out to you when you’re in distress show that they prioritize you and are available to help.
7. A certain degree of competitiveness
Competition among friends is natural, but true friends will not allow competition to tear their relationship apart. Friendly competition can actually inspire you to have the motivation to improve, and is not cutthroat or dividing.
A good listener is someone who really values what you have to say and pays attention to your words. If there is someone who remembered a small detail or fact that you mention, they could possibly be a good friend. Meanwhile, being attentive and truly listening to what your friends say can also demonstrate that you prioritize and value them as well.
As well as having a grateful heart, a good friend also expresses gratitude, whether it’s for a favor that you did or simply for the friendship you provide. It’s also important to show your gratitude for the people in your lives; while it’s easy to feel grateful, the failure to outwardly express gratitude may actually come off as ingratitude in the eyes of others.
Someone who encourages you to be a better person (either verbally or non-verbally) is a powerful, positive influence in your life. A friend should not judge and shame you into changing; rather, if you chance because of a friend, it should be because their actions or personality traits inspire you to follow their example.
A good friend will not make you feel insecure or want you to change for no good reason. Instead, the type of friend who is worth having will boost your self-esteem by valuing your identity and unique qualities.
Finally, remember that a good friend is worthy of your time—you should cherish the memories, interactions, and conversations you have together.
Oh, how natural it seems when women and girls are so damn mean to each other. Seemingly more mean, underhanded and brutal than men are to one another. More deliberate. Yet often more unconsciously, horribly, mean.
Of course this is a sweeping generalization. There are a lot of good people in the world. Good women, if you will. And there are certainly men out there who can rival the biggest drama queen you’ve ever seen. But that’s not the point.
The point, actually, is that in general, modern women do not possess the solidarity you might hope for or even expect in a world that is supposedly heading toward gender equality.
Without question, the notion of woman vs. woman is not particularly new. Many often laugh it off, deferring to our curiously ‘natural’ state of being. As if it is in our DNA to compete with one another. We are known to do it for men, friends, jobs, attention, recognition and self worth. Things you can actually win and things you can never win. The tangibles and the intangibles. We’ll launch silent daggers over petty issues such as clothing, mimicry and appearance faux pas — all fodder for cannon balls of hatred for fellow females to fire. We even squabble over the things that are entirely nebulous, the ideas in the back of our minds that are more like phantoms than actual live gains. Not many question it. We make fun of it, acknowledge it, disparage upon it, but we don’t really ask ourselves why and how we got here. How did we get this bad?
That’s just how women are … Supposedly.
Well, that might be true, but only as true as the belief that ‘boys will be boys.’ But really, truly, boys will be boys and girls will be girls in the context of certain power relations and social structures.
Call it natural if you like, but it can be changed.
Now before you start planning your rebuttal to this notion, I didn’t say that this was going to be easy. And I’m not necessarily talking about a widespread campaign of ‘awareness’ so that we can initiate the healing process one-by-one in our own psyches. Well, in a way I am, but in another way, I’m not. Based on my research in academia and general observations, I find this to be a more simple problem than we think — albeit one with widespread and complicated ripple effects on society as a whole.
Think about this: What is the only problem that seems to persist in spite of women’s economic advancement, educational progress, sexual freedom, access to technological innovation and relative (though increasingly tenuous) reproductive rights? What is it about our worth as individuals that inspires our insecure animosity?
It is kind of miraculous if you really think about it. Unbelievably, this very real issue can not only interfere with how we feel about ourselves, it can also affect how others feel about us, thereby influencing how we live our lives!
It is so silly, so obnoxious, so superficial, but painfully true.
Alas, it is all about beauty and body image. Or more specifically, beauty in the context of our persistent inequality to men, and our disproportionate body commodification that ironically feeds the fire between us and our sisters.
Yes, oh yes, in spite of how far we’ve come, our looks are still up there on the checklist of our success as women. It is on our checklist in an arbitrary omnipresent way that we did not necessarily invite. Perhaps we once made it a priority. Perhaps others made it a priority and we correspondingly internalized it by default. We might even occasionally boycott it, hoping to escape this particular paradigm of self worth and success. But either way, whether we imposed it upon ourselves or someone else did, it’s there now and has been for a long while. I would love to cite a ton of sources here to underline this concept, but that would make this article two million pages long.
The truth is that we know it. We see it, live it, breathe it, watch TV about it, read about it. We see how Hilary Clinton, Sarah Palin, Michelle Obama and others are irrelevantly defined by it in the political sphere when there is hardly a media whisper of George W. Bush’s, Bill Clinton’s or Mitt Romney’s appearance. Every once in a while we might hear about Barack Obama’s ears, but that’s about it. Looks do not define men like they still define women, even in the most serious platforms in the world. This is a beautiful but ugly remnant of a time when women were the trophies and property of men, when our entire worth was once based on appearance, pedigree, purity and child-bearing ability.
Now let me explain why this lame vestigial problem is creating the massive divide and how serious the implications are.
As a disclaimer, this is not to say that we cannot or should not take care of ourselves, that we cannot or should not care about fashion, beauty, fitness, glamour or sexual appeal. All of these interests are fun and worthwhile. We should be free to indulge and revel in them. So should men. We should be able to honor all beauty in all forms whenever possible. It gives life extra spice and flavor. When we can appreciate the range of beauty wholeheartedly and appropriately, it has the power to enhance our spiritual experience.
Nevertheless, when the notion of ‘hotness’ or ‘not-enough-hotness’ breathes its muggy breath into our ability to get a job, keep a job, get along with people on the job, be liked, be unliked, be taken seriously or not-taken-seriously, there’s a problem.
Think of looks as a resource. Just like education and money and charm. A resource to get what you want. A commodity, if you will. We are living in a capitalist society, after all.
Right about now, some people might want to chime in and blame capitalism for this problem, this commodity-possession-ownership-hierarchy-resource-consumption problem, akin to all other problems in the world. And they might be right. But for now let’s keep it simple. Looks are resources. Resources that are inherent and cultivated alike.
Now fathom this: In a culture where patriarchy is still alive, endearingly belting out delusions of grandeur, thrusting a withered cane into the air from its convalescent bed, dinging the bell for the nurse, at least one crippled mythology has remained — the story that women are not fully worthwhile unless they are amazing at everything AND beautiful in the eyes of others. For some, external beauty in the eyes of others and oneself is success in and of itself.
Regrettably, this fact alone has helped turn women against one another, a trend that started centuries, if not millennia ago. Poignantly, this is the one major factor that still determines our well-being in the public eye whether a woman is gay, straight, bi, white, black, brown, etc., a veritable competition whose competitors are by default only women in a world still ruled by men.
So when an attractive woman strolls around your workplace, if she is prettier in your eyes than you are — or in someone else’s eyes — she might inspire your jealousy. And if you’re that kind of woman, even if only for the day, you might treat her differently. She might as well be parading a better resume in front of you. Look at me, I can get a better man, a better job, a better wardrobe… a better life.
In a world of squirrels, she might as well have been the squirrel who collected more nuts than you. You might even try to steal her nuts. Or tell the other squirrels how she came about those nuts in a suspicious way. Either way, this squirrel is perceived to have more resources than you, even if some of those nuts are spoiled. Then again, how would you know what kind of nuts she has? All you can see is her pile of nuts. And that’s all that matters. Perhaps you should take notes from this fabulous squirrel, maybe even do laps around the tree to get that squirrel’s thighs. Perhaps you should kill the fabulous squirrel. You just don’t know what to do!
Now imagine that you are the beautiful squirrel with the pile of nuts. Now you’re getting a little anxious. Now you feel like you should give some away to diminish the danger or perhaps alternatively guard your nuts more fiercely. You just don’t know what to do! But why should you give away your nuts? They didn’t climb that tree to yank them from the branches. Perhaps they don’t have your scampering ability. Perhaps the tree liked you better. Either way, they’re your damn nuts, you shouldn’t have to make excuses.
Now if nuts represent success or self-worth in the human world we’ve been trying to create (you know the one with ‘gender equality’?) there should be nuts for everyone, and we shouldn’t have to get them from men, so to speak. Even though we know they have them!
What we really need, is to stop fighting with each other over the nuts. Instead, we should all collectively attack the tree together.
Bottom line: As women, we need to stop fighting over the scraps that are left to us by those in power. Jealousy over looks is only a symptom of everything else we still do not have, one of which is the ability to shed beauty and body image as all-powerful dictators in our lives.
It is so easy to forget who the real enemies are, and thus we cannibalize ourselves on the way to what we hope is a better life, even if only in the form of vicious shit-talking to alleviate our fleeting anger at what ‘Miss Thang’ represents to us in the world. She is not the one to blame, unless of course she really did something horrible to you. But then you might ask yourself, Was she horrible to me because… of this exact issue we’re talking about? Is she fearfully scrambling for beauty commodity in herself and projecting it outward? Like the rest of us are grappling with in some form every day?
On the flip side, having perceived good looks can drag a woman down in ways that are similarly unfair and unearned, namely when other women do their best to sabotage her progress, her job, her advancement, and her happiness based on jealousy of her collective resources or perceived ability to acquire *nuts* as it were.
When women can finally relegate beauty to a fun life expression, rather than a prerequisite of success, it might be safe to say that we will see less tension between our sisters. I would like to think that when women occupy enough power positions in every sphere, we will no longer question where our real worth lies, at which point we might see an end of the extreme jealousy trend between women as we know it.
So let’s pretend that when we as a gendered group achieve more consistent success equaling men, we will treat each other differently indeed. Imagine that we will even help each other more. We can even start now, as it would surely support the cause if women helped other women advance for a change. Or at the very least, we can try our best to disparage upon each other less (tempting as it is). Because one fine day, beauty will not be our unwitting default scapegoat for why we aren’t successful or happy.
To some degree, there may always be a form of tension between everybody, women and men, with or without the commodity of beauty playing a role. But I think we all can agree that the world would still be a much better place, even if fraught with endless problems to resolve, if women were nicer to each other.

When some dealers tell you that their machines work better than others, they are trying to manipulate you into buying them hence one should be really cautious. Most of these machines sold by these retailers end up being faulty in the long run as they are usually not original.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. — Primeline Products, Inc., one of the nation’s leading suppliers of trenchless pipeline and concrete rehabilitation products as listed at reported on the progress of the company’s latest outreach initiative. Over the past few weeks, Primeline Products representatives have demonstrated to managers and workers of a number of cities advanced, affordable, highly effective means of rehabilitating sewage lines and other municipal assets.
In one session with the City of Tavares, Primeline Products experts demonstrated how to save thousands of dollars by fixing several leaks with inexpensive, quick-curing DeNeef Hot Shot grout. At another recent event, Primeline Products representatives illustrated to leaders of the Metropolitan Sewer District of St. Louis, Missouri, how 3P Silicate Resin can be used to complete point repairs that pass the city’s demanding tests after only 90 minutes of curing. With further demonstrations to follow in the coming months, Primeline Products will continue to spread awareness as to how its trenchless pipeline and concrete rehabilitation products can cut costs and job times while delivering reliable, long-lasting repairs.
“We’ve been very busy here at Primeline Products over the last few months, with Andy and myself meeting with many organizations around the country to show what our products are capable of,” company representative Paul Harris said, “Every single product we carry has been rigorously tested in demanding real-world situations, and it is a real pleasure to provide others with the benefit of the work we do to ensure this. We’d like to thank the many who have attended our workshops and demos recently, and we look forward to meeting with many more in the near future.”
When a buried pipe fails, the most obvious way of effecting a repair might be to dig it up to allow for direct access. In many such situations, though, doing so could cost thousands of dollars on top of the price of the actual repair work, making it often best to seek other solutions.
As is detailed at Primeline Products has since 1998 been one of the world’s top providers of carefully selected supplies and tools that enable subtler, more cost-effective ways of addressing such problems. From testing equipment and accessories to grout, resins, and plugs, Primeline Products offers an industry-leading range of trenchless pipeline rehabilitation goods.
In recent months, Primeline Products representatives have been meeting with municipal authorities and workers throughout Florida and in other states to personally demonstrate the effectiveness and value of the company’s products and the rehabilitative techniques they enable. At demonstrations and workshops in Clearwater, Dunedin, Sarasota, and St. Petersburg, Florida; St. Louis, Missouri; and elsewhere, attendees have learned valuable ways of more efficiently addressing the problems they encounter in the course of their work.
With more sessions planned for the future, further information can be found at the Primeline Products website. Those interested in requesting demonstrations of their own are invited to do so using the contact information at

Courting nowadays can be far from easy. Many people seem to be converting from tried and tested approaches to get a partner and rather considering the web. Internet dating services are available for nearly every group yet somebody who looks wonderful in their profile is probably not as desirable as they may appear. In fact, a lot of internet dating dating profiles are actually completely artificial. The brief description just isn’t true, the image is just not genuine and the one who has the account might not exactly be the individual replying to information. Requesting dating advice these days could be hit and miss at the same time. Few individuals actually understand how to understand the current dating arena. Something is definite nevertheless.
