Getting into shape so you can start dating again

Before we even get started we would like to say this: in no way are we in favor of physical elitism. We get that love comes in all shapes and sizes. What you look like should be what love is all about, and even sex knows no physical limits.

This article is mainly there to make suggestions about getting yourself on track for your next date, and we are taking the physical approach because we believe that it can also help with psychology and increasing confidence. What we are saying it: you don’t need to be that ‘Hollywood fit’ nonsense that is getting pushed onto people and making a lot of us feel insecure. No, we are saying to embrace your body and who you are; we just want to make a few suggestion for activities that might help to clear your head before that next date.

Walking

This is possibly the simplest thing that a lot of people can do. We spend a lot of time stuck indoors staring at computers and sometimes we just get stuck in that reality. Sometimes you just need to switch all of it off, and what better way than walking out and leaving it all behind. Don’t get us wrong we all need those computers, especially when we’re dating online, might is be for love or even sex. But sometimes, you just need to go out and take some fresh air.

Swimming

If you enjoy water and you want to switch off, why not go for a swim early morning at your local pool. This is not a play on words, swimming is very immersive. When you out your head under water, you’re in another dimension altogether. This helps to forget your problems by bGettringing you into a drastically different universe altogether. You don’t need to be an Olympic swimmer, just spend some time enjoying the water is all… Also, it’s good for your heart too!

Running

For people who are a bit more obsessed about cardio, then running is a good choice. Not only that but the endorphins released when you running can give that very enjoyable ‘runner’s high’. Basically, your body is in pain so your endorphins are kicking in, bringing your mind and body into a very Zen place. If you’ve got problems and you’re anxious about dating, thinking about it during a run will bring some different perspectives to your attention. Again no need to run miles, just find somewhere you can run around for a bit.

Redirecting focus

Basically, you can choose any other sport you want, might it be cycling or table tennis. The idea is to redirect your negative focus into a more positive light so that you can feel more confident about dating. This will work both for traditional dating or adult dating, using sites like the sex chat site .The beneficial side-effects of sports will give you a healthier glow, it’s not necessarily about getting fit. Beyond this, you might actually find an activity which you really enjoy doing, bringing something else into your life that will contribute to your happiness and confidence. A happier and more confident person is always more dateable!

Women can give you HIV

And to finally put this fucking HIV argument to rest ……………………………..

“HIV transmission between women sex partners is possible, as reported by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention earlier this week. While rates of transmission between women are lower than heterosexuals and gay men, there are opportunities for infection.”

HIV Transmission Between Women Confirmed by CDC [source]

HIV transmission between women sex partners is possible, as reported by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention earlier this week. While rates of transmission between women are lower than heterosexuals and gay men, there are opportunities for infection.

While this is not the first case of a positive diagnoses acquired as a result of sexual contact between two women, it is the first time the CDC has confirmed transmission where one partner has not reported risky behavior. In this case, the CDC viewed high risk behavior as recent sex with a man, intravenous drug use, piercings and tattoos.

The woman who started the relationship with a negative HIV status had not had sex with a man in 10 years, nor had she used intravenous drugs, or had a blood transfusion. She and her partner had been in a monogamous relationship for six months, and she had donated plasma in March of 2012, after testing negative for the virus.

Ten days after donating plasma, she began feeling ill and went to the emergency room complaining of sore throat, dry coughs, diarrhea, and vomiting. She was tested in the emergency room for HIV and the results came back negative. Two weeks later she tried to sell plasma again and was denied due to a positive HIV test result.

The couple reports using sex toys, having frequent and unprotected sex, and engaging in sexual activity during menstruation. They report at times sexual activity caused bleeding. Blood and body portals can be a risk factor for contracting the virus.

CDC encourages sexually active people to get safer sex counseling and testing even if both parties are female and one is HIV negative.

HIV transmission between women has been confirmed by CDC, and may help women become more pro-active about sexual health. Many women who engage in sexual activity with women, believe they are safe from infection because they are not having sex with men. It is now confirmed that naïve bliss is likely ineffective in combating risky behavior.

Changing times require people interested in staying healthy to take control. CDC encourages sexually active people to get safer sex counseling and testing even if both parties are female and one is HIV negative.

Taking time to know someone, and not engaging in sexual activity before being tested with the appropriate windows is important in remaining free of sexually transmitted diseases. Many people, heterosexual and gay, fail to do this placing themselves in direct risk of contracting diseases.

Other precautions include, taking care to change out sex toys when with a new partner, and making sure to sanitize toys between use. Foreplay, can quickly turn into hot sessions where body fluids are exchanged. Finger cots and dental dams are can easily be incorporated into sex play. Engaging in risky behavior that includes, sex while menstruating can put one at risk as well.

In this case, one HIV positive confirmation should serve as a warning that woman-to-woman transmission exists. The CDC report that HIV transmission between women is now confirmed should perhaps be viewed as a public service announcement by women. All sexually active people can benefit by becoming pro-active about maintaining safer sex habits to promote good sexual health.
