Get your mind out of the gutter - this isn't about what you might be thinking! 'Cumpromise' is an interesting blend of the Latin word 'cum', which means 'and' or 'with', and the English word 'promise'. Just as 'cum' in Latin brings together two nouns, 'cumpromise' serves two purposes: it encapsulates the two perspectives within a relationship, and represents the concept of mutual agreement.
You might see yourself as a 'Popular Junkie', someone who thrives in social situations, basking in the energy of a crowd without necessarily needing to be the center of attention. On the other hand, your partner might be a 'homebody', who finds comfort in the warmth of family, friends, and familiar surroundings. Initially, this contrast might not be evident or troublesome, as you find common ground in shared environments, such as a lively home full of roommates or small gatherings with mutual friends. The shift from 'lost' to 'lust' to 'love' in the relationship brings you two closer, and you find joy in the constant companionship. But, the harmony starts to fade as the relationship transitions into a more committed phase.
The problem arises when the 'love phase' introduces new 'rules', particularly from your partner who prefers the comfort of home over the hustle and bustle of the outside world. Your once-adventurous outings dwindle to rare occurrences, and when you do get the chance to go out, you find yourself soaking up every moment, unsure of when the next opportunity will arise.
So, where did it all go wrong? Did anyone misrepresent themselves throughout the phases of the relationship? Not necessarily. The issue lies in differing perceptions and expectations.
In the initial phase of the relationship, when you spent time at your partner's home, you enjoyed the social aspects, while she cherished the homey vibes. She viewed you as a reformed social butterfly, content with quieter surroundings, while you saw the socializing as an extension of your outgoing persona. As the relationship evolved, these contrasting perspectives created friction.
But, there's hope. There's nothing inherently wrong with either of you or your preferences. The key to resolving this issue lies in the art of 'cumpromise'. It's about balancing your time, understanding each other's needs, and setting realistic expectations for the relationship. The goal isn't to suppress one's needs for the other, but to find a mutual ground that satisfies both.
Remember, you can only see things from your perspective, but through communication, you can understand your partner's view and work together towards a solution.
"If you can’t see your success, change your vantage point."
"Women are liars", or so many men perceive it. Now, don't be quick to jump into conclusions - let's clarify what this means. The claim isn't about women being intentionally deceitful, but more about the hidden rules that unfold as a relationship progresses.
In the dating phase, the only apparent rule seems to be spending time together. Time filled with laughter, discussions, activities, and the electric spark of budding affection. Late-night visits, dinner and movie dates, or cozy movie nights at home - they all culminate in an exchange of emotions. As the bond deepens, the lust-filled days start evolving into the comforting embrace of love.
But, what if I told you there were rules all along, rules you didn't realize existed until they were broken? These unspoken expectations subtly govern the course of the relationship. Yet, they are often overlooked in the early phases when labels are hazy, and things are casual.
Upon becoming 'official', new rules are introduced, such as increased quality time, more public outings, and interactions with each other's families. It seems like a natural progression of the relationship, doesn't it? Still, even in this phase, you feel you maintain a sense of personal freedom - hanging out with friends, and occasionally going out together after work. But as the relationship progresses, even more, expectations start to emerge.
When you think of the shift in a woman's behavior after getting engaged, you might attribute it to wedding planning stress. However, it's more than that. The 'Bridezilla' phase often uncovers long-held expectations that have been subtly imprinted since childhood. After the wedding, the so-called 'honeymoon phase' ends and the reality of living together brings forth more rules that have been visualized and practiced for years.
This progression, which often feels like an unraveling of hidden rules, is why many men fear commitment. However, once a man falls in love, he is willing to endure the challenges because the emotional bond holds him. If a man refrains from committing, it might be because he hasn't allowed himself to fall in love, to let you 'load the gun', so to speak.
Here's a solution to circumvent this: Be upfront with your rules. If your partner infringes upon them, don't suppress your reaction; communicate your feelings. If you share your expectations, and your partner chooses to stay, then the responsibility lies with them. On the other hand, if you don't disclose your rules, and they feel blindsided later on, it's you who is at fault.
Don't rely on the assumption of 'common sense' because if it were common, it should have been apparent during the dating phase. Take solace in knowing that the right partner for you will respect and meet your expectations from the start, not because they feel 'tamed', but because they genuinely align with your needs.
Remember, in the end, all we want is to find happiness and fulfillment.
"If you can’t see your success, change your vantage pointe."
Greetings, lovers! Ever felt like a wild panther, stealthy and tantalizing, yet misunderstood? If you've ever identified with the smoldering allure of Edward Cullen from Twilight, you're in the right place.
“I'm the world's most dangerous predator. Everything about me invites you in...I'm designed to kill.” Powerful, isn’t it?
Like me, perhaps you've experienced moments where your internal predator surfaces, where your inner sexuality roars like a lion. Confused? Allow me to clarify. Men are often labeled as the alpha or the puppy, women as the vixen or the serial monogamist. All these roles boil down to one thing: a potent sexual energy, a force that magnetizes others towards you. This, my friend, is the real origin of being “thirsty” – a thirst for power born from sexual magnetism.
The predator within us craves a challenge. We're fashion savvy, our outfits meticulously chosen to stand out from the crowd. Whether it's a deliberately disheveled look or a high-end ensemble, it's designed to enthrall, to intrigue, to invite you in. It's a siren's song in the form of a Versace suit or a little black dress.
Oh, those seemingly spontaneous encounters with a charming stranger? As unplanned as they may seem, they're actually tactical maneuvers, akin to a grandmaster's move in chess. And just like in the Greek myth, we predators can be sirens, enticing others towards us, using our melodic voices to weave a web of enchantment. We master the art of conversation, spinning tales that keep you hooked, while we carefully avoid revealing too much about ourselves. Our true lies and deceptive truths create a hypnotic dance that seduces you into our world.
Remember the time you casually mentioned your preference for hard candy, and I playfully turned it into a risqué innuendo? Ah, those were fun times. It's this subliminal language of seduction that keeps the conversation stimulating, raising the sexual tension, yet keeping it playful and mysterious.
But it's not all about sight and sound; let's talk about smell. Our heightened sexual prowess releases pheromones - undetectable yet powerfully compelling. Like animals sensing danger or attraction, these pheromones create an instinctual reaction, a primal call that's impossible to ignore.
How to combat this seductive onslaught? The answer is surprisingly simple – get to know us. In doing so, you flip the script, turning the predator-prey dynamic into an engaging dance. After all, isn't the ultimate relationship challenge more exciting than fleeting sexual conquests?
Being a sexual magnet isn't about scoring or winning. Instead, it's about creating a connection that transcends the physical, a crossing of paths that steers you towards the success you desire. It’s a beautiful crossing of paths that changes the course of your life, setting your GPS for a successful love journey.
So, be unapologetically selfish in pursuing your happiness. Like I always say, “If you can’t see your success, change your vantage point”.
Are you ready to delve deep into the intricate labyrinth of commitment and uncover what's truly behind those non-committal actions? Strap on your emotional armors, ladies. It's going to be a bumpy ride!
Let's start by addressing a burning question – do you really want him to commit? Now, be honest with yourself. Because if you do, you need to realize that the emotional gun he's holding might just be loaded with silver bullets. Are you controlling the bullets while letting him hold the trigger? Think about it.
Some men lack the understanding of motivation due to their upbringing and resort to tough love. You don't like being called fat. He knows it, yet he keeps on doing it. He even watches you cry. But still, you stay... This screams a lack of confidence or some deep-rooted issue that makes you comfortable in such a situation.
Growing up with a father who did not flirt with you can make you feel self-conscious. This could leave you without the confidence to recognize when a man truly loves you, or even how to love him back. Remember, your self-worth isn't defined by anyone else. You are your own beacon of light!
It's high time to recognize your inner charisma. Demand respect and the treatment you deserve. Once you realize your true inner glow, you'll be on the right path to finding the right man.
Ask yourself, "Why should he commit?" If you truly believe in your worth, you wouldn't fear asking him. If he doesn't respond positively, remember that you deserve better.
Commitment doesn't have to come with a title. The power lies in communication. A title gives you some claim to the other person, but it doesn't necessarily denote commitment.
The emotional balance in a relationship should be equal. We, as men, want to be the buyer, but that doesn't mean we own you. If you hold the emotional trigger, we're both equal players.
