Why Talking On The Phone Helps Maintain A Healthy Relationship

Regardless of whether you’ve been together ages or you’ve just started dating, talking on the phone is a key part of maintaining a healthy relationship.

Misinterpretation is one of the main issues with communicating via messages as there is no tone of voice and you are unable to fully interpret what someone may mean purely by reading text on a screen.
Talking on the phone means you can hear the person’s mood and their tone of voice and how they’re coming across. This can help avoid any misunderstandings which may lead to disagreements and arguments.
We know how convenient it is to text each other but with the possibility of spelling mistakes and abbreviations, you may not be able to convey your thoughts as well as you would on the phone. Sometimes it’s quicker to just ring someone and explain and then you’re also going to get immediate answers rather than hanging around waiting.

Speaking on the phone regularly can strengthen your connection with each other, whether you’re in a new relationship or have been together for a long time.
Being able to hear each other’s voices is much more personal and intimate than reading words on a screen.
It also means you’re more likely to be giving them your full attention because replying to a message means you can leave your phone and walk away – which you’re not likely to do when talking on the phone.

Getting to know someone at the beginning of a relationship is easier when you have chats on the phone. You’re able to get to know someone’s personality and get a much better idea of what they’re like rather than by messages alone.

Something that can be a big issue for some people is waiting for a reply when you’re messaging someone. Some people see it as a continuous conversation and expect replies as though you’re face to face, but other people don’t and may then reply to a message but walk away from their phone so the other people is left waiting for a response. When talking on the phone this is unlikely to happen because there would be some awkward silences if someone didn’t answer a question!

Whether you’ve just started dating or have been married for years, make sure you chat to each other on the phone and keep that connection.

Cheap and Easy Last Minute Valentine’s Day Date Ideas

Rather than going out for a fancy dinner, we think these date ideas are great for something a little different, especially if you’re on a budget!

Have a movie marathon.
When you think of Valentine’s Day you think of classic rom-coms but you can adapt to what you both like! Watch some of your favourite films, or catch some newer ones, go wherever the mood takes you! You can snuggle up in bed or on the sofa with blankets and snacks for a romantic evening together.

Cook dinner together.
You don’t need to cook anything fancy, find out what meal you both love and cook it together. It’s a great chance to bond and show off your cooking skills and also learn new ones.

Take a romantic walk and/or have a picnic.
No matter where you live there are likely to be lovely walks to go on, be it along the promenade of the seafront, in a park or in the countryside. Weather permitting you could even incorporate a picnic. Take some snacks and some wine and a blanket and sit somewhere with a nice view and enjoy each other’s company.

Have an indoor picnic.
More than likely the weather in February isn’t going to be ideal for an outdoor picnic, especially in the evening if you’re both working so arrange an indoor picnic instead! Put a blanket on the living room floor, get some finger food and some wine and just enjoy being with each other. There’s less pressure than having a dinner together and not much preparation required.

Organise a game night.
This could either be on a console or with traditional board games – or both! You can challenge each other in 2-player games on your console or play some traditional board games together. You could even combine this with forfeits for the loser!

Visit a museum or art gallery.
If you both enjoy similar things, why not visit a local museum or art gallery? There are all sorts of different types so there’s likely to be something you can both enjoy. A lot of these are also free so it doesn’t need to cost much. There’ll be plenty of talking points so if you’re in a newer relationship it’ll give you a chance to learn about each other as well as whatever you’re looking at.

Go Geocaching.
Get a geocaching app and go on an adventure together!
Navigate your way around the local area and find cleverly hidden containers and sign the log book.
There might be things to trade or just things to look at but either way you can have fun hunting together.

Share a home spa day.
You don’t need to go to an actual spa in order to relax. Light some candles, put on some relaxing music and trade massages. This can be a really romantic way to connect with your partner with the added bonus of being totally relaxed at the end of it.

If you’ve yet to meet someone to share the day with, join You’ve Pulled today and get chatting to singles in your area!

6 Ways To Tell Someone Likes You

Want to know what signs to look for to tell if someone likes you? Here are our top 6 to keep an eye out for.

 

  1. Mutual eye contact.

If someone is interested in you they are much more likely to try and catch your eye and will maintain eye contact whilst talking to you.

Maintaining eye contact elevates your oxytocin levels and increases mutual attraction!

Just make sure that your eye contact doesn’t end up verging on staring as that’s rude and might scare your date!

 

  1. Finding excuses to touch you.

When someone likes you’ll they’ll quite often go out of their way to find excuses to touch you.

This might be lightly touching your arm as they talk to you or finding an excuse to hold your hand.

Another way they could touch you is by “preening”. Picking fluff off your clothing or straightening your collar or tie could be an indication that they’re interested in you.

 

  1. Inward leaning.

The way a person is sitting is an important gauge as to whether they like you. People tend to lean towards people and try to close the gap between you. For example uncrossing their arms/legs or leaning over a table or if you’re sitting next to each other, they’d be likely turned towards you to give you their full attention.

 

  1. Mirroring.

Subtle mirroring indicates attraction. If they cross their arms when you do, or uncross their legs when you do then it is very likely that there is attraction there.

People who like one another are likely to mirror each other’s body positions. It can help establish rapport and sends a subconscious signal that you’re interested.

 

  1. No barriers between you.

If they are interested in you they are likely to remove any barriers or obstacles between you. If they’re sitting opposite you they might move to sit next to you or if there is something big on the table they might move it out of the way so they can see you better.

They might move cups and things out of the way so that there is a clear path between you, or also as mentioned previously, they may uncross their arms or legs as this can be seen as a barrier, so removal of this leaves them more open towards you.

 

  1. They ask you lots of questions.

If someone is asking you a lot of questions about yourself and seems genuinely interested – then they probably are!

If you like someone you want to make time to find out more information about them so if someone is making an effort to learn about you then they are likely to have a vested interest in you.

We all love a semi; give your date one with these great facts about Croatia!

With the England v Croatia semi-final game looming, we thought you might find some facts about Croatia useful!

Impress your partner by saying “I love you” in Croatian – “Volim te”. (Probably not the best idea if you’re on a first date though!).

Put a spark into the conversation by telling them Nikola Tesla was born in Croatia.

Dubrovnik was known as the “Adriatic Pearl” in the early 19th century and was a filming location for “Game of Thrones” King’s Landing and Star Wars – certainly somewhere to visit if you holiday together!

Croatians had their own alphabet from the 12th to the 20th century. The Glagolitic alphabet was preserved only by Croats. Why not write a secret note for them to decode? The pen was also invented in Croatia, originally a mechanical pencil called the “Penkala”.

If you’re thinking of buying your date some flowers, know that the national flower of Croatia is the Iris.

If your date is a fan of musicals, they’ll be impressed to know that the island of Vis is used to portray Greece in the film ‘Mamma Mia 2’.

For a romantic getaway why not take your partner to Dalmatia? Shakespeare’s comedy Twelfth Night was set there.

If you’re one for dressing smartly for your date, you can enlighten your date on the fact that the necktie was invented in Croatia.

Not got a date yet? Then why not get on You’ve Pulled and meet someone today!

Tips To Having Great Phone Sex

Want to try phone sex but not sure where to start? Read our tips below and get the most out of your conversation.

Speak with some soft whispers and add in some playful sighs to let them know you’re enjoying it. It helps if you’re already turned on before you talk on the phone as you’re in the right mood before you start.

A good way to lead into it if you’re both feeling awkward is to set up a roleplay scenario.

You’re not obligated to only talk about stuff you’ve done or necessarily will do, during phone sex. It’s a great and safe place to talk about things you wouldn’t or couldn’t do in real life.

The other person will give their own clues as to whether or not you’re hitting the right buttons. You might find yourself following their lead or maybe you’ll be confident to take the reins yourself. If you’re shy, they might only need to know that you’re a willing participant in order to take the lead.

Phone sex is a great platform for testing the waters for your secret fantasies. Finding out what their ‘confessions’ are, can be great fodder for future phone sex fantasies.

If there is anything you’re not comfortable with then tell them. You both need to enjoy it so there’s no point going along with anything that you’re not getting pleasure from.
