If you’ve ever dated (and most of us have), you might be familiar with the uncomfortable sting that is a breakup. And while we all have different methods of coping (some of us choose booze, some of us like ice cream and sappy movies, and some of us hit the gym – hard), there’s one common outcome that needs to happen before you start dating again – you need to get over your last relationship.
Too often, it seems, people move on and begin dating someone new, only to cut the cord suddenly once they realize they’re just using the new person as a sort of bandage – someone to patch up the gap that their ex-love has left. This is never fun for anyone involved.

Not sure what to do this holiday weekend? Here are four simple ways to enjoy a great 4th of July with your significant other.
Attend a Fireworks Show
What would the 4th of July be without fireworks? Nearly every city, large or small, hosts a fireworks show during the holiday weekend, so check your local newspaper and plan a patriotic outing with your significant other. Worried about traffic and crowds? Many fireworks can be seen well outside the official viewing area. All you need is a couple of lawn chairs, a bottle of wine, and a private spot to watch the show.

Whether it is a first date conversation or the first email exchange, oftentimes we find ourselves walking a tightrope between getting to know someone and not insulting them at the same time. Our conversations generally lean toward dull, friendly banter as opposed to riskier topics, like thoughts on global warming. This approach will likely stymie any chance at a stimulating conversation and most likely won’t give you any idea about a long term match.

How many times have you tried to share your hurt feelings with your man, only to throw your hands up in the air in frustration, sure you are stuck with a caveman? He stares at you with a confused look of fear. You keep trying, for the thousandth time, to explain how you feel, with analogies and you’d act it out with sock puppets if you thought it would help. But, hours later, you still feel like he either doesn’t get it or doesn’t care. So what happened? What is keeping you two from connecting emotionally?

When Star Trek ® first arrived on the scene in late 1960’s no one could predict that 40 years later fans or Trekker (formally known as Trekkies) would become their own dating niche. Trekkers actively seek to date other Trekkers.
No one else could possibly understand the cult nature of being a fan. Would a non-Trekker even know who Data is or know the difference between a Klingon and a Romulan ?
