Love is a wonderful thing. So is falling into it. Feelings can be very complicated and confusing. How do you know that your love muffin is all that he claims to be? Is he putting on a show or is he genuine? It takes a while to know for sure, so don't rush headlong into love with your eyes wide shut. As you navigate your love life, there are several tricks and secrets that you can use to stay happy, healthy and sane.
Many people fall in love with love and later learn that compatibility just isn't there. Maybe your fella is just interested in an ego boost; craving your attention, fun and sex. Perhaps he's even looking for you to pay his bills. Or what if he really does want love and domestic bliss, complete with a family of his own? How will you know? Everyone has a motive and a desire. You need to understand what drives him. To do that, you need to pay attention.
Emotions can be as stormy or as calm as the sea. It is hard enough to tell your own feelings, let alone guess at his. You recognize the ebb and flow of the tides: life is constantly changing. You want a relationship that is easy, happy and free of negativity. But life will always serve up something surprising. If you'd like to reduce your chances of bad surprises, you need to be on the lookout for warning signs.
Manila can be an intimidating city for a newcomer.
It doesn't have to be.
Follow these 10 tips on how to look like a local and pretty soon people will be calling you "Chip" or "Te."

In Manila, it’s all about balancing familiarity and respect.
Address men as “Boss," “Chip” (chief), “Kuya” (Tagalog for older brother), “Pogi” (handsome) or “Pare.”
When speaking to ladies, call them “Miss.” But replace the short “i” with a long one, so that it sounds like “Meees."
Or just call them “Te,” which is the abbreviated word for ate (Tagalog for older sister).
Makes no sense? You're fitting in already.
First, raise your hand to get the attention of the server.
When you’ve finally made eye contact, raise your other hand and draw a rectangle in the air by forming triangles with the tips of your index fingers and thumbs touching.
Draw them out apart, snapping shut a rectangle as you shut the index fingers and thumbs of the same hand together.
As you do this, say “chit” loudly enough for the server to hear you.
Pronunciation is key here. You don't want to insult the chef.
Though you can hail the Philippines' most popular form of city transportation from just about any point on the road, hopping on at proper jeepney stops has advantages. You have a better chance of grabbing the jeep’s prime real estate: the seat farthest from the driver, right next to the entry in the back.
Sit yourself there and wait until the jeep starts to fill up with riders. Then pay. Never mind that people will have to practically crawl over you to get to their seats.From this seat, you not only get to exit quicker, you get to experience the thrill of having passengers in middle seats pass your fare to

For years, I had a major weakness: I was extremely judgmental. I recognized it about myself, and I wore the label with pride.
What I didn’t recognize was the fact that I had another weakness that was keeping me judgmental and loud about it: I had low self-esteem.
It’s surprising just how many of our problems are linked to low self-esteem. But if we take a minute to think about why we feel the way we do and consider the negative thoughts we have, we’ll see just how much of it is a branch of that same tree.
For years, I made a bad habit of verbalizing how strong I was. Can’t you all tell? I don’t care what you think!
But I did care.
I went along fine like that for a while, but eventually my illusion of perfection came crashing down on me. Suddenly, without warning, I had severe panic attacks that would not allow me to leave my bedroom for the better part of two years.
This will illustrate for you just how little I left my bedroom: My preschool-aged son would stand at the end of the hall, applauding me and jumping up and down on those rare occasions when he saw my husband helping me make my way to the living room for a five-minute outing.Before all of that, I thought I was handling everything well—telling people off
