Why Your Peer Group Is So Important

In life, our peer group (i.e. the people we spend most of our time with) has a massive effect on everything we do and think. I can’t emphasize its importance enough; for example, if all-day, everyday you were surrounded by friends at the peak of physical fitness, who saw health as the most important thing in the world, it’s pretty likely that eventually you would start to change your diet and be healthy as well (if only to keep up with them!).Our peer group can spur us on to the greatest of heights, or pull us down and make it feel like there’s a chain around our neck anytime we try to improve ourselves. What we need to do is build a peer group that serves us. When we’re around people who have the same goals as us, who won’t let us off the hook, who check up on our progress, that’s what drives us to create the best results.

Creating an Online Dating Profile

Writing a dating profile is not easy – I think there’s a science and art to it! I believe most guys think that just put up a few words on dating website and then the replies will come rolling in – nothing could be further from the truth!
Women seem to know how important a good dating profile is, while men, on the whole, don’t! First impressions count; especially in the dating game. So having a dating profile that generates a good response is the essential first step in finding suitable and interesting dates.
Writing a good profile is not easy; it takes time, practice and some tweaking.  When you register at any dating website, you will have to create a personal profile that reflects what you are like and what you are looking for. You have only a few paragraphs to do this, so every word should count.
My advice on how to create the best personal profile is simple: Honesty and Modesty.
Be selective of your photo.  Make sure it shows a good view of your face, and does not include friends.    Have fun, and enjoy the responses.  It certainly makes life's journey interesting!!
