11 Characters And Habits That Can Leave You Poor (Photos)


burundi-1

Making it in life comes with a lot of sacrifices but that is when you know exactly what you’re dealing with.

We all grow up with certain characters. These characters prevent us from making it in this world. It could be negative or positive, either way, it can still prevent you from making it in life if it is to the extreme, that’s why it is important to do everything in moderation, let’s take a look at some of them.

1. Too Meek

It’s good to be meek because even the Bible admonishes that such people will inherit the Kingdom of God, but when it comes to becoming successful on earth, being too meek or submissive can ruin your chances of ever making it. We are living in a jungle and the rule of only the strongest survives is real and if you really want to make it, being too submissive is not the right way to start or else people will continue to trample upon you and prevent you from ever reaching your goal.

2. Too Honest

It’s good, to be honest, but as the saying goes, “The truth hurts” and some people are not good at taking it. So while you might think you’re being honest, your honesty might step on the toes of others and so when the need comes for people to push you up, they might rather avoid you. If you notice, people who are very honest are always avoided, making them loners. Sometimes, you need to look at the situation and see if it’s good, to be honest, or just shut up.

3. Disrespectful

We are living in a small world and so don’t ever think the person you’re with today will remain same forever, a time will come you will need the services or help of that person, so no matter where you find the person, it is very important to respect them because you might not know when you will need their help. Word travels and you don’t want the tag of “a disrespectful person” following you wherever you go.

4. Over-Confidence

It is very good to be confident but when one is over-confident, it can ruin a lot of chances and definitely can also lead to a lot of oversights. If you know you are not good at something, don’t be so confident about it to the extent it ruins you. This habit has caused many a lot. If you know something, just execute it without talking too much or making it look like you’re the only one with knowledge about it.

5. Greedy

No matter what you do, you can’t have everything in this world and so it doesn’t make sense when one wants to be so greedy. When you set yourself on the path to acquiring everything, remember one day, you might end up with nothing. Be content with what you have now while you aspire for greater. Never try getting what belongs or what is supposed to go to someone else for yourself.

6. Unforgiving

As the saying goes, “one good turn deserves another” and “what goes around, comes around”. Any person who is unforgiving will surely end up facing the gun one day and will definitely also need forgiveness one day. It is good to be forgiving because one day you will need that same gesture from another person to sort out a mess you created.

7. Vengeful

Just like being unforgiving, being vengeful can lead to a lot of problems. Such actions create an unforgiving cycle that never stops and so one day when you want help from someone, you will not get it all because you were too vengeful. Being vengeful can also lead to you reacting in a way that you’ll end up regretting later.

8. Bossy

Nobody likes to work with people who are too bossy and so it is better to be a bit friendly when working with subordinates or else one day, you will end up with nothing. The people around you are those that make you successful and so if your character sends them away, who will do the job for you? Think of King Agorkorli’s story and you will realise at the end of the day, the people he had to rule, left him to rule himself.

9. Womanizing

We are human and we all have our weaknesses when it comes to the opposite S3@.x:’ but when you just can’t keep your hands off the body of women, then you are definitely heading for the ditch. This is because, too many women will let you lose your focus and more so, you have to spend on each one of them unless you’re a gigolo and in that case, that is actually a business.

10. Alcoholism

Alcoholism is just like flushing your money down the drain because the moment you become addicted, all your money and your dreams will surely go to waste. Being an alcoholic or drunkard takes a lot out of you. It takes your time since you’re never really sober to think of anything else and it steals your personality. It can also deprive you of certain opportunities. Who wants to work with an alcoholic?

11. Kindness

It’s good to be kind but not all the time and I will never advise anybody to part with their last pesewa all because of kindness. As we stated, one good turn deserves another so you can’t put all your trust in people. Be kind where you think when you fall, there will be something safe to land on because sometimes kindness is not different from being an alcoholic, all your money can go down the drain for nothing and the people you help will not help you up when it’s your turn.

These are the 3 Types of Women Who will Never be in a Healthy Relationship (Guys, Be Careful)


Relationships can go awry sometimes causing serious friction between partners. These are signs you should look out for to avoid the wrong girl.
No matter what anyone says, everyone wants companionship. That companionship can be created with a person and/or an animal; but no matter who or what it’s with, we all want it.
The same way there are some people who are unfit for parenting, there are also people who are unfit for relationships. As it pertains to women, who, scientifically speaking, are more receptive to loving and nurturing beings than men, there are some who have so many loose ties from their past that these things still haunt them in their future.
At some point and time, they may have had their heartbroken by a man (probably their father first); they may have never seen men and women interact with one another in a loving way, so they don’t know how to be a loving partner in a relationship; or they may have also been taught that the world is centered around them and anyone who doesn’t agree with that is irrelevant. No matter what sparked uncomfortable situations in these women’s lives, unless they find the necessary path to overcome those obstacles, they are unfit for a relationship.
Check out the three examples of women who are unfit for relationships below:
1. The woman who wants to think like a man.
Any heterosëxual woman who believes thinking like a man is the best way to securing a relationship with a man is wrong. Thinking like a man will only attract other women to you. If that’s what you’re seeking, by all means, continue to do what you’re doing. If that’s not what you’re seeking, be a woman. Men love women who embrace their femininity. There’s nothing wrong with being nice, soft, and happy. Those things are what brings balance to men, who are easily angered due to testosterone. Think like a woman and act like a lady.
2. The woman who believes being “independent” requires her to be single.
Due to mainstream media’s misleading promotion of the “independent woman,” many women have been brainwashed to believe that once they’re in a relationship, they lose their independence. Any sound person knows that you can very well maintain your independence in a relationship, respectfully of course. Besides, there aren’t too many men who look forward to taking care of a woman who doesn’t want to do anything with her life except mooch off of him.
3. The woman who has a bad attitude.
Women with bad attitudes are like a cancer — they walk into a room and zap all of the positive energy out of it. There’s no reason why anyone should walk around with a permanent “mean mug” on their face, especially not a woman. Whatever is causing you to be so angry that you wake up with a self-induced attitude, please visit a therapist to tackle the root of the problem. No one, man or woman, wants to be around someone with a nasty attitude.

Nine Things A Married Man Should Never Say To Another Woman


  • Married men have to interact with other women at work and school, but these interactions need to be respectful.Intimacy with another women should be avoided at all costs. A married man’s best friend should be his wife, and the ONLY woman with whom he has intimate conversations. His wife should be the most important woman in his life, no exceptions.
  • 1. “I’m need a good friend to talk to”

    If the conversation is too intimate, it creates a closeness that should not exist. If a man needs a friend to talk to, his wife is the best person to do that.
  • 2. “My wife and I haven’t been initmate in a long time”

    A married man should never talk about this subject to anybody, especially another woman. If you feel frustrated, talk with your wife and try to work it out together.
  • 3. “My wife and I don’t get along very well”

    At some point, you two got along, that’s why you decided to get married. If your marriage is going through a rough patch, remember the good times and get closer to your wife – not to another woman.
  • 4. “Yesterday, my wife and I had a huge fight”

    No one needs to know that.
  • 5. “I’m glad to have you near me”

    This type of compliment makes it clear that you are interested in another woman and that you need her. A married man should never have this type of friendship with another woman.
  • 6. “I am stressed out. Do you want to go out later?”

    Hanging out with another woman alone is disrespectful to your wife and is the first step to infidelity.
  • 7. “We’re just friends, so this shouldn’t be a problem”

    If you need to give excuses about your actions it is a sign that these actions are totally wrong. Avoid anything that you have to give excuses for.
  • 8. “Do you have a boyfriend?”

    This information should not be of interest to a married man.

9. “Do you think that I’m a good husband?”

This is something a married man should be asking his wife.
If you are married, avoid this kind of friendship with other women. Show respect to the commitment you made with your wife.

What Happens When Couples Marry after the First Baby?

What Happens When Couples Marry after the First Baby?
A briefing paper prepared for the Council on Contemporary Families by Kelly Musick, Cornell University and Katherine Michelmore, University of Michigan
One of the consistent findings of sociological research in recent decades has been that couples who had a child before getting married had substantially higher odds of divorcing than couples who married first. This held true even when researchers controlled for other factors that tend to distinguish such couples from those who marry directly—education, family background, race and ethnicity. But considering the tremendous increase in premarital cohabitation and childbearing over the past quarter century, and in light of new evidence that many other longstanding “laws” of marriage and divorce have been overturned  set out to investigate whether this particular sociological “rule” still applies.
We used large-scale data from the 1995 and 2006-2010 National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG), which asks women of childbearing age questions about relationships and family formation. We analyzed all marital and cohabiting unions in which a child was born within 10 years of the surveys (i.e., between 1985 and 1995 in the earlier period and 1997 and 2010 in the later period). We ended up with a sample of 2,656 couples from the 1995 NSFG and 3,046 from the 2006-2010 interviews.
In the earlier period, for births occurring between 1985 and 1995, 17 percent of the couples we studied had a child before marrying. Of these, 21 percent married within a year, and 59 percent of those still together went on to marry within 5 years. In the later period, for births occurring between 1997 and 2010, 35 percent of the couples we studied (fully twice as many as a decade earlier) had a child together before marrying. This time a smaller but still significant percentage of such couples later married: 15 percent did so within a year, and 48 percent within 5 years.
In the 1995 sample, as researchers had long warned, couples who lived together, had a premarital birth, and later went on to marry were more than 60 percent more likely to divorce than couples who married before having a child. But just a decade later, couples who lived together, had a child, and then went on to marry after the birth of their first child had no higher chance of breaking upthan couples who married without ever living together first or couples who lived together but married before having a child.
In each case, we controlled for socio-demographic factors that correlate with differences in marital behaviors and the risk of divorce. Controlling for these factors, we found that the risk of divorce for couples who wed after having their first child outside marriage was no longer any higher than for couples who lived together but married before having their first child or for couples who never lived together at all before getting married and starting a family.
The only cohabiting parents with significantly higher chances of breaking up were those who never married. Again controlling for socio-demographic factors, we found that about 30 percent of couples who never married separated within five years, a breakup rate twice as high as that we found among the married. This is a disturbing finding in terms of child outcomes, because we know that family instability is a risk factor for children.
It is not at all clear, however, that if we could magically assign these cohabiting couples to marry, their family relationships would be more stable. In general, cohabiting couples tend to have less education and income than married couples, and it may be that those who do not marry are a particularly disadvantaged group (for example, we could not account for the job prospects of male partners). Such couples may also have relationship problems (substance abuse, infidelity, or domestic violence) that explain why they do not get married, and that would not be solved by giving them a marriage license. Marriage is less a silver bullet than it is an outcome of a whole set of factors linked to stability and security that help parents stay together. The stark and growing differences in divorce risks between couples with little education and those with a college degree undermine the notion that marriage itself can solve the bigger problems that stem from economic uncertainty and inequality.
Implications
Our research addresses the potential impact of rising childbearing among cohabiting couples—and in the process sheds new light on the evolving meanings of marriage and cohabitation in the U.S. By looking closely at changes in parents’ unions around the time of childbirth, we found that premarital births no longer predict breakups, as long as couples marry at some point after a child is born. But much still remains to be learned about the causes and consequences of persistent family instability when parents never marry at all.
This briefing paper highlights some of the findings of a much longer study by Kelly Musick and Katherine Michelmore, “Change in the Stability of Marital and Cohabiting Unions Following the Birth of a Child,” forthcoming in Demography.

Ten Obvious Ways to Know When a Man is Flirting With Young


Ever wonder if that nice guy is flirting with you? There are a few proven ways that can tell you if he is interested in you. While it’s difficult to read body language at times, it’s possible if you know where to start.
Here are 10 ways that men unconsciously and even consciously let you know that they like you. Take a look, see what you see and maybe you will find your love right now.
1. Lovely smile
A lovely smile is actually a good sign and, when it comes to flirting, it’s one of the surest signs he is interested in you. If you notice that he is smiling at you, there’s a good chance he likes you and wants to approach you. Maybe he is shy, so why not show him your confidence and courage by approaching him first? Of course, if you like him. After all, there is nothing to be ashamed of if you approach a man first. Just smile back and initiate a conversation with him.
2. Shy blush
Perhaps you know how it’s difficult to flirt with shy guys, but it doesn’t mean that you should avoid such type of man. If you notice that a guy blushes around you, this is one of the most obvious signs he is trying to flirt with you. However, not only do shy guys blush, any guy can actually blush when he sees a beautiful girl. Blushing is a bodily function that we can’t control and if he blushes around you, he certainly likes you.
3. Eye contact
This sign is a little bit tricky, but surely worth paying attention to. Eye contact is important during communication and we need to use this form of body language as often as we can. Depending on how long a man holds an eye contact with you, you can find out whether or not he likes you. If he holds an eye contact with you for longer than an average person, it might be a sign he is interested in you. We all make an eye contact when flirting, right? It’s the same for guys. If a guy holds a short eye contact, he might also flirt with you, he is just a bit shy.
4. Mirroring
Sometimes men mirror woman’s actions without even knowing it. Mirroring is another sign he is flirting with you. This ranges from mirroring blink rates to mirroring manner of speaking. For instance, you are laughing and he is laughing as well. The thing is, it’s natural for us to mirror something we love. Besides, a lot of singles dating websites advise guys to use mirroring technique when flirting with girls, maybe your crush does this too.
5. Hands on hips
If he stands with his hands on the hips or places the thumbs in the belt loops, he might be interested in you. This way, he is trying to show you he is a confident man and simply true macho. I personally don’t like when guys use this way while flirting with girls, but still it’s one of the signs he is flirting with you.
6. A flirting touch
If your crush touches you, it’s definitely a sign he likes you. But, when a guy touches you accidentally, this is absolutely another sign to watch for. It means the guy is trying to get your attention and find any excuse to continue conversation with you. Do you like that guy? If yes, flirt back! Most girls ignore this important sign, but you shouldn’t do it. After all, he might be your hubby!
7. Head Tilts
The way a man tilts his head can also signify that he likes you. If he tilts the head towards you, this means he’s listening attentively to each word you say. This also means he’s really attuned to what you are talking about and he’s really interested in conversation with you. I love that amazing feeling when a man is listening to me. I always appreciate it, even if I’m not interested in that man.
8. Dilated pupils
Sometimes our eyes give us away when we don’t want them to. When we are attracted to someone or something our pupils dilate and they become larger. When we don’t like someone or something, our pupils contract. If you notice that the eyes of the guy keep dilating, it’s one of the most obvious signs he adores you and is highly interested in you.
9. Raised eyebrows
You crush may hide his eyes when he is around you because he likes you. He can keep his eyebrows a little bit raised as well. If his eyes are widened and his eyebrows remain raised while you’re talking, this is definite sign he is flirting with you. Watch for it and you’ll surely see it!
10. Fidgeting
Do you fidget when you are around the guy you like? I’m pretty sure you do and it’s okay. You are just nervous and it’s actually a good nervous. It’s all about expectation since you don’t know whether or not he is interested in you. If you see him fidgeting, this is because he’s interested in you and he is a bit nervous to start conversation with you.
Now that you’re aware of the signs he is flirting with you, what are you waiting for? Start flirting back and maybe you will have a nice date tonight. Do you know any other signs of flirting that I should have added to this list?

The Five Most Common Reason Men Fall Out Of Love With Their Wives


marriage
Now, is there a way to prevent this from happening? Absolutely! But it requires putting your pride aside, taking an honest look at how you’ve changed over the years, and being open to reconnecting with your best self.
To get you started, I’ve compiled five of the most common ways women change for the worst, and what you can do to turn it around and remind your husband why he fell in love with you all those years ago.
1. You no longer respect and/or like your husband.
Think back to when you first fell in love with your husband. He was probably someone you really respected — or at very least liked a whole lot. But after ten years together, instead of laughing when he makes his corny jokes, you roll your eyes. Instead of listening to his long-winded stories, you interrupt and tell him to hurry up. Instead of complimenting the good in him, you criticize the bad.
The solution: Acknowledge that you’ve turned into a critical woman, and then shut your mouth. Seriously. Only look for things that you love and respect about your husband, and if you can’t think of anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. You obviously married him for a reason; you just have to stop being a Critical Cathy long enough to reconnect with the man you fell in love with.
2. You stopped taking care of yourself — physically and emotionally.
When you first met your husband, you probably went to great lengths to be your best self. You got your hair done, wore makeup every day, exercised regularly, and stayed in control of your emotions. But as the years went by and his place in your life became more permanent, all those efforts just didn’t seem so important anymore.
Face it: you let yourself go, and your husband noticed. It’s normal to lose steam, especially if you were telling yourself that you were getting dressed up for him, or staying fit to be more attractive to him. It won’t stick unless you do it for you.
The solution: Acknowledge that you’ve let yourself go and start reconnecting with your best self. Find an exercise you love, like Zumba or running. Start wearing makeup again. Get dressed every day, even if you have nowhere to be. Ask yourself if your emotions or mood swings are hurting or helping your bond. Commit to improving yourself, just like you did when you weresingle and dating.
3. You have no life.
Women have a tendency to stop doing the things they love once they settle into a relationship. Unfortunately, this is the kiss of death for long-term relationships and marriages. You have to maintain your life outside of the relationship, and continue (or reconnect with) the hobbies you loved when you were single.
The solution: Stop putting yourself last and reconnect with your old hobbies. Go to a weekly yoga class with a girlfriend who you never get to see anymore. Sign up for a pottery class. Make time for coffee with friends. Force yourself to get out and see people other than your kids and husband.
4. You have no passion for life and new experiences.
It’s a myth that men love young women. The truth is, men love women with a youthful energy. That means passionate women who are excited about life and new experiences. If you’ve lost your hunger for life and you feel like your most exciting days are behind you, it’s going to affect the way you feel about yourself — and the way your husband looks at you.
The solution: Change up your routine and start living again. Join a book club. Attend town meetings. Volunteer at a food bank. Get involved in politics. Start a side business. Find something that you can be passionate about and I guarantee your husband will start to see you in a $exy new light.
5. You’re more of a mom than a lover.
Be honest: Do you still treat your husband like your man, or are you all, “Eat your vegetables” and “Rinse your dish before you put it in the dishwasher”? Do you give him the stink eye when he orders fries instead of the salad, or do you choose his outfits because you don’t trust him to select an appropriate tie?
If you’re taking care of your husband the way you take care of your kids, you’re not letting him be a man — and it’s going to turn him off.
The solution: Leave him alone and let him be him. And really, in the grand scheme of things, who cares? Is it really the end of the world if he chooses to wear an embarrassing tie to dinner?
Also, encourage him to have “man time” by himself, doing the things he enjoys. And then, when he comes home, let him tell you about it. Don’t roll your eyes when he tells you how he changed the air filter in the car. Just listen, and be happy that he’s doing his own thing and being your man.

See Reasons Why Your Boyfriend Has Not Introduced You To His Parents Yet (Photos)

When a man introduces you to his parents, your chances of tying the knot with him are high, more so if you’ve dated for a long time. This means he is very serious about your relationship and he’s comfortable with you as his life companion.

However, if he takes ages to take you to their home to meet his family, you’re doomed. Here are the reasons why men shy away from introducing their girlfriends to their folks:

1. He doesn’t see a future with you.

Come on, if he is serious with you and spending the rest of his life with you, he’d have introduced you to his family.

2. He’s not sure his parents will like you.

His parents have been talking ill about certain types of ladies, and somehow, you seem to fit in that bracket.

3. He hasn’t gotten over his ex.

Maybe there are some traits his ex-girlfriend had that you don’t possess. Men find it very difficult to move on from a break-up, especially if it was a lengthy relationship.

4. You’ve not introduced him to your parents either.

Ladies On Their Periods Can Relate With These Five Things


lady-menstruation
Every girl,lady and woman can relate with these 5 things they do when they are on their periods.
1. Wondering, “Am I Crazy?”
It never fails, you know that it’s PMS or your period in full swing causing you to violently sob at the sight of a puppy or the shoulder brush of a stranger who says “excuse me” a little too harshly, but that doesn’t stop you from thinking you’re having a meltdown.
2. Announcing You’ve Got It
When they need a tampon, they will go to great lengths to acquire it, even if that means marching right into the office of Susan from, to whom they’ve never previously spoken, to see if she’s got product on her person.
3. Going for the Granny P@nties
Yup, girls have all got underwear designated for the ole’ menstrual cycle. There is no shame in that game
4. Two Words: Fetal Position
Under the desk at your office, on the floor of your bathroom—even a park bench will have to suffice sometimes. When severe cramps hit, you’re suddenly able to perfectly replicate the position you maintained for nine months in your mother’s womb.
5. Avoiding the Gym/Moving at All
You’re bloated, bleeding, and more than likely, a little weepy. Even though exercise might lift the mood, you can’t bring yourself to lift your body weight. You hunker down on the sofa until you’ve at least transitioned to a light flow tampon

Tips To Finally Get Over Your Ex (Must Read)


past-lover

Having a hard time getting over that ex that you had so many good memories with? No need to worry. Dr. Etemesi is here to help. Umm…I am not really a doctor but you get the drill.

Getting over an ex can either be easy or hard, depending on how you felt about them. If we’re going to be honest, a person never truly knows how hard it will be to get over their ex, until a few days after the break-up. Come to think of it, it’s surprising how the relationships you thought wouldn’t hurt as bad if they ended, wind up hurting the most, isn’t it? But moving on doesn’t have to be hard. Simply follow these tips:

1. Hook up with someone else.

Give a chance to that person that has always wanted you and done everything to win you over. It’s as real as it gets. There’s no better way to forget an ex than to hang out with other people of the opposite S3@.x:’ and have fun with  them, even if it’s for a short time. Who knows, maybe that random person will truly be the one.

2. Remind yourself of all the terrible things your ex did to you.

You might miss that person but you should also understand that you didn’t break up for no reason. Things were not cheerful day after day otherwise, the two of you would probably still be together like President Uhuru and Margaret…Remember how your ex showed you so much disrespect or hurt your feelings and you won’t feel so attached anymore.

3. Surround yourself with good friends.

Grab a few drinks, go on road trips, watch football games together etc. Just focus on forming a greater bond with your friends than ever before. You might realize that they are the ones who love you the most. There is nothing that helps more in taking your mind off an ex, than having a good time with your friends.

4. Follow the ‘no contact’ rule.

 Delete the number. Do it right now. Do it fast. Have you deleted it? Okay. Let’s proceed. But wait. You still remember the number right? Now block it. Block it right now. Block that ex. Okay. You are good now. Haha. The worst thing you could possibly do to hinder the moving on process is to call up your ex, reminisce on the good times, and be sucked right into a bad yo-yo relationship that was not working for either of you to begin with.

5. Understand that this is real.

 Get closure and let your ex know that this is a real break up, not just a “break”. Do not leave the door open to getting back together. If things got bad enough to break up in the first place, it is hard to imagine a scenario where things can get better instead of worse.

6. Do not leave your stuff with them for a long time then try and get it back.

Either pick your stuff immediately after the break-up or just leave it. If you have left your stuff there for longer than two weeks, either leave it for good, or ask you ex to send someone to bring it to you. Don’t invite them to deliver it themselves.

7. Get rid of everything that is a reminder.

Pictures from your vacation in Diani beach? Burn them. The sweater she got you? Give it away. Do away with anything that brings back strong memories of your ex. 

8. Get busy with your life.

Try and keep yourself busy and do something for yourself. Ask your boss if you can work overtime and throw yourself into your work. Find a new hobby. There are a million different things you could do to stay busy, and as the days turn into weeks and the weeks turn into months, before you know it, you will be ready to try out the dating scene again.

9.  Avoid drinking too much.

 If you want to go out one night and just drink until you can’t take anymore, I’m not stopping you. That is a lot of people’s first choice after a breakup. But when that supposedly one-time thing turns into a weekly, or worse, a nightly event, you have a whole new set of problems on your hands.

10.  Reward yourself.

Take that trip you always wanted to take. Experience something exhilarating that you never would’ve done while in a relationship like bungee jumping or bike riding. After being with someone for a long time, you begin to take on their characteristics. Take a few risks, try new things, and find out who you truly are again.

11. Do not entertain your ex.

If you really want things to be over, you should give your ex a cold shoulder when they try to reach out. Don’t accept their invitation to meet or respond to their texts. They will get the message.

Feeling empowered to get over your ex?

We’re all busy, and sometimes dating just isn’t our number one priority,  that’s just a side effect of modern life.

However, if it feels like your relationship with a guy consists mostly of texts and cute emojis, you may want to ask yourself if it’s actually worth it. Here are a few signs you’re actually dating your phone and not him:

1. You get good morning texts instead of actual “good mornings”.

The good morning text is something we have a love/hate relationship with. On the plus side, it’s such a great feeling to wake up and have such a cute and thoughtful message waiting for you, but waking up next to him and hearing those two little words in person would be definitely better.

2. You have seen more selfies of him than his actual face. Dating Your Phone

When you’re dating him mostly through your phone, your camera roll is likely stocked with selfies he’s sent you on various occasions and yet, you haven’t seen him in real life quite as much, which is bullSh!t. In an ideal scenario, you’d be in selfies together because you would be spending the face-time together instead.

3. You rarely ever make plans to see each other. 

Being busy does often mean you have less time to dedicate to romance, but that’s no excuse to put off building a real connection with someone in favor of the one you’re getting through your phone. You may as well be dating a robot. Spending time with the guy you’re dating in real life is more important than keeping in touch through text all day, every day.

4. When you are out together you are texting all night. 

Whenever the two of you go out separately (which is most of the time), you’re texting constantly throughout the night to the point that you almost feel like you’re together…but you aren’t. The person he is via text isn’t the whole picture, it’s just a small part of him, and you need to know all facets in order to date someone.Dating Your Phone

5. It feels like you know him well, despite not spending much time together. 

When you’re dating a guy mostly through your phone, you feel like you really know him well. And who can blame you? You spend a lot of time chatting with him about your lives. However, you don’t actually have many memories together…unless you count chat history as everlasting memories.Dating Your Phone

6. You feel like you are a part of his world even if you are just watching from the outside. Dating Your Phone

You feel like you’re a big part of his day-to-day life, but there’s no real proof of it besides a long, scrolling text history. You might want more, but that doesn’t seem to be forthcoming.

7. You have zero idea where the relationship is going. 

The most baffling part of being in a text-heavy relationship is that you really have no idea where things are going. You might wonder to yourself if you’re only keeping in contact to feel some type of connection to someone until an actual relationship opportunity presents itself.
