DO talk about yourself as who you are today in the present and the values and goals you have for yourself in the future. DON'T monopolize the conversation or make yourself the highlight real, no one healthy or worthwhile being in a relationship with is interested in getting into a coupleship with a narcissist.DO make the conversation reciprocal, be inquisitive and show your interest in getting to know the other person. DON'T alter who you are to fit what you think your love interest wants/needs.When we alter who we are and portray values that are not our own, we attract people we were never meant to attract, therefore the relationship is doomed before it begins. It is much easier than putting forth the energy required to pretend. DON'T complain about your lack of luck with love or blame your city's [insert city name here] dating scene!DO keep in mind that dating isn't easy for anyone, no matter where you live.With that in mind, I renew our appeal for crowd funding donations that go directly to Sultana's account in Kazakhstan.Every dollar that goes there gets us a dollar closer to satisfying a consul and getting this talented and dear young woman into college. First of all, thank you Julia for your donation this week!By way of update, Sultana has been accepted by Lane Community College in Oregon.She took the TOEFL exam on March 25 and is expecting the results any day.
I have applied for a Point Foundation LGBT scholarship and have my fingers crossed, but it's the crowd funding that I'm counting on. I estimate I'll need ,000 to cover my first year and that I'll need it by the end of April 2017.
It seems everyone's an expert on relationships and human behavior, or are they? Premature dismissals of someone are a one-way ticket to overlooking a potentially great love match. Instead, gradually reveal your inner thoughts, feelings, and personal story starting with light and casual then progressing to deeper, more intimate self-disclosures. When you acknowledge your wants and needs, it’s more likely you’ll land a lasting relationship. DON'T get lost talking about yourself and your past, including the mistakes, heartaches, who you were ten years ago or even in your last relationship.
Here, the advice IS coming from actual experts and in this case, six bona fide therapists! Ditch the long laundry list written by everyone else, but you! When getting to know someone in a new relationship, they want to know who you are today not how you were in a past relationship or lifetime.
To apply there, we've had to send her academic records from Kazakhstan to World Evaluation Services in New York. All of this goes to say that Sultana likely will be making her college acceptance choice by mid-May, after which she will quickly have the I-20 she needs for visa purposes in hand. With all that in mind, we've extended the crowd funding end date to June 15, by which time Sultana's education path for 2017-18 should be fully decided.
We should know the results of their evaluation -- how Sultana's records compare with U. Thank you again to all who have been supporting Sultana's cause!
