5 Reasons Why Singles Have More Fun

For the first time in history, there are more single people than married couples worldwide. While being in love can be absolutely amazing, embracing the single life can offer you a richly rewarding experience too!

Society and popular culture may have you believing that you need to be one half of a couple to feel happy and whole. But it’s a myth that you need anyone to make your life joyous and fun. After all, you are the person in charge of creating your own happiness.

If you’ve been single for a while, and you’re not enjoying this lifestyle experience, perhaps it’s time to shift your perspective…

You can chat, flirt and message thousands of single people just like you on the You’vePulled mobile dating platform. Getting to know other singles, in your area and nationwide, can open up a new social life, offer countless dating opportunities, and alter your entire viewpoint of singledom. It can also highlight how being independent and unattached is much more fun than you may think!

  1. You Live And Play By Your Rules

As a single person, you do not have to answer to anyone, or to take responsibility for others. You have complete freedom to live your life by your own rules.

There’s no need to pretend that you want to do stuff, just to keep your partner sweet. It’s also not an issue how you choose to spend your time or money. You can eat the food you like, and enjoy activities that please you. Plus, you can have your own way all of the time.

To make your experience of single living more fun, consider trying new things that require you to step out of your comfort zone. Dare yourself to sign up for an evening class, a workshop, or sports activitiy that you have wanted to try out for some time. Join a local club or team, and explore your passion for a hobby. As you’re acquiring new skills and knowledge, you’ll also meet like-minded people who can become new friends that share your interests.

  1. You Can Focus On Your Career

More personal growth and development is available, if you’re single and your time is your own. In a relationship, it can be common for one partner to be more career-minded than their lover, which can often be a cause of romantic disharmony.

As a single person you can channel all of your energy into creative projects, building up a business, or advancing your career. No one will mind if you decide to work extra hours. You also don’t have to consider the needs of others, if you’re required to take a business trip. There’s no need to feel guilty simply because you’re putting your career first.

To balance out all of the overtime you’ve been working, you can enjoy social downtime with your co-workers, or mix and mingle with fellow entrepreneurs at networking events. You could even get lucky and connect with people who can open doors of opportunity in your business niche or line of work.

  1. You Can Expand Your Social Circle

People who are in a long-term relationship often make compromises that impact on their social life. One person’s insecurities may make their partner have to choose between hanging out with friends at the weekend or showing a commitment to love. Compromised relationship dynamics could also make you feel constantly under pressure to be on your best behaviour when making polite conversation with a partner’s friends or family members.

As a single person, you call the shots on your social life. You get to choose who you spend time with, where you go, and what you do for entertainment. You can stay in or go out whenever you like, and broaden your social horizons by flirting and chatting to a diverse group of people. And if you fancy hooking up for NSA adult fun, the experience will be absolutely guilt-free.

When you’re single, you have time to develop friendships on a deeper level, and to surround yourself with upbeat, fun and positive people who support your lifestyle choices. You get to choose who you want to invite into your expansive social circle, and you can spend as much time as you want with them.

  1. You’re The Boss

When you’re single and live on your own, your life is likely to be mostly drama free. There’s no bickering over trivial matters or fighting over the TV remote control, and no hurt feelings that you have to try your best to soothe. You’re the boss of your domain, and what you say goes.

If you don’t already have a bucket list, have fun creating a checklist of places you long to visit and experiences that you’d love to enjoy. Embarking on a solo adventure can teach you a great deal about yourself, and introduce you to a world that has no social limitations.

  1. You Know Who You Are

As a single person, your primary focus is your self. Spending time alone is greatly beneficial when learning how to love yourself, and exploring what makes you tick.

Having emotional space and freedom also means that you can develop your spirituality without the need to explain yourself. To know who you are at the core, it’s necessary to delve deep into personal matters that impact on your behaviour, feelings, thoughts and emotions.

Once you connect with your authentic self, you will never want to compromise on anything. You’ll feel inspired to create a life that is uniquely your own based on your priorities, values, passions and interests. And of course, because your authentic self is so awesome, you’ll effortlessly attract your perfect love match, should you want one.

5 Chat Topics To Avoid On A First Date

Couple on a first date

Before you embark on meeting up with the sexy stranger you’ve been flirting with and chatting to on the UK’s busiest phone chat line, it’s highly recommended that you consider your potential chat topics. What you chat about on a first date can greatly influence the perception of you that the other person gets, and lead to dating success or failure.

You’ll naturally want to impress your date with your personality, sense of humour, and communication skills. While it’s definitely a good idea to have a repertoire of chat topics, to ensure that the conversation is relaxed and flowing, there are some hot topics that are best avoided…

  1. Dating & Romance Failures

You’ve been busy chatting, texting and flirting with someone who caught your eye on Chat2Date’s instant and totally anonymous 24/7 chat line, and now you’re keen to get to know this person better. Exploring common ground and shared experiences is usually where most people start, when trying to build rapport and a connection with someone they like.

As you’ve met on a flirt and date chat line, it makes sense to talk about each other’s past romantic experiences. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with briefly mentioning previous dates who’ve been on, provided that it’s not an endless list. Going into detail and describing past first date disasters, and your impressive ability to pick losers, should also be avoided. Your date also doesn’t want to hear the horror stories and dysfunctional dramas about how crazy your ex was. Save the complaining for conversations with your friends.

A first date is a prime opportunity to get to know someone new without having to dredge up your entire relationship history. Focus instead on discussing your ambitions in life, and your bucket list.

  1. Money

Talking about money is superficial and can make people feel instantly uncomfortable and awkward. Money talk can give the impression that you’re financially motivated (not a good way), or label you a gold digger. If someone’s solvency status is important to you, check out your date’s clothes and grooming habits for hints and clues of their wealth.

First date banter should be light and fun, so swap a serious subject for a topic that makes you smile and laugh. Talk about your favourite comedy shows and movies, and share tales of funny experiences you’d had that will make your date laugh out loud.

  1. Controversial Stuff

There’s no quicker way to spoil the mood on a first date than by bringing up controversial matters like religion and politics. Everyone has unique beliefs and personal values, but a first date is not the occasion to explore these. To avoid having a heated debate, swerve these topics – unless you have a day job as a member of the clergy or a politician, and you have a juicy piece of hot gossip to share.

If you love controversy, talk about subjects that you know really well, and your unusual hobbies. Your date will find it fascinating learning all about something they’ve never experienced.

  1. Sex

If you’re been flirting outrageously on the UK’s busiest phone chat line, there’s a high probability that your banter has had sexual undertones. When you met in person for the first time though, it’s best to skip talking about sex. Talking about it increases the possibility of ending up in bed and having a one-night stand. If you’re keen on this person, that spur-of-the-moment experience may scupper your chances of a second date.

If you don’t want your date to run a mile, don’t chat about your promiscuous past, one-night-conquests and long list of sexual fantasies. Reserve the flirtation for your eye contact and body language, and talk about art, music, travel, and other things you are equally passionate about instead.

  1. You

Yes, it’s great that you’re awesome, super confident and have high self-esteem, but endlessly talking about yourself will make your date feel that you don’t really have time for anyone else. Listening to someone’s self-adulation quickly kills the conversation, and extinguishes any chemistry or spark that may have been igniting.

Create an air of mystery about yourself, and increase your date’s interest in you, by turning the tables and showing undivided attention. Make them feel special by asking thoughtful questions, and actively listening. By the end of your date, they will have a higher opinion of you than if you had babbled on for hours and made the conversation all about you.

Top 5 tips when on a first date this Valentine’s day

YOU’VE PULLED!  – First date has finally arrived and the pressure is on!

Bad Date

               Here are our top DO’S and DON’T’s to get you to that second date.

DO        Make sure you shower, wash your hair and MAKE sure you brush your                            teeth, nothing worse than turning up for your first date and stinking like you                      have not washed in the last 3 weeks!!

DON’T  Over do it! Over powering someone with too much aftershave / perfume is                      enough to make them sick and head for the door.

 DO       Compliment them on their appearance – Just a little remark on how nice they                   look could be a good little ice breaker.

DON’T    Ask if their wearing underwear, that’s one question that’s a little too far and to                  be honest will destroy your chances of finding out!

DO         Say if you want to see your date again

DON’T   SAY ‘I love you, do you love me’ on the first date. That’s one way you’ll see                      them running for the door faster than Usain Bolt!

DO         Ask questions and listen

DON’T    Sit there and talk about yourself all night, ignoring your date is down right                        boring and RUDE!

DO          Make sure you go to the right place, which could be a Café, Restaurant or pub

DON’T    Take her to a football match or round your mate’s house!

DON’T    Get Drunk

DON’T    Mention your EX

DON’T    Bring along a friend, that’s just weird!

DON’T    Talk about marriage, babies, That’s even more weird!

And finally

Just have fun!!!
