Did you know? 7 ways to get him to chase you

by Alicia Fannin Your confidence is most likely the top personality trait that makes you attractive to your guy. There is something about a woman that is self-assured that men find irresistible. Being confident is something that you have to work at. 1. STOP IT These tactics can be used at any point in a relationship, from the very beginnings to well into a marriage. If you want to change up the status quo and find ways to get him to chase you instead of you chasing him, it is totally doable. All you need to do is stop. Stop chasing him. There may a bit of a standstill before the tide turns but if he cares about you, rest assured that it will turn. 2. PULL BACK Sometimes you not only need to stop what you are doing in chasing him but you need to give him some distance and space to work with. Be patient and see what happens. It can actually be quite exciting to see what he will do when you pull back. Pulling back means that you allow him to miss you and that you don’t make it your responsibility to take control for every interaction and communication. You may just be pleasantly surprised. 3. FLIRT This is a very fun way to get him to chase you. Flirting is a great way to get his attention and make him want to pursue you. There are a thousand ways to do this, at least. You can tease him but make him do the work here. Most guys like the chase element of a relationship and tend to be much more interested when they are allowed to do that 4. REMEMBER THAT NEEDINESS REPELS The average man does not like a woman that is needy. Making demands of what you want from him will not make him chase you and he very well may run. Additionally, whining to get the attention you want will be like nails on a chalkboard to him. If you think about it, when you see a woman that is very needy, it probably repels you too. No-one ever wants to be like that. 5. BE CONFIDENT Your confidence is most likely the top personality trait that makes you attractive to your guy. There is something about a woman that is self-assured that men find irresistible. Being confident is something that you have to work at. Know who you are and know your worth. Make him work for the prize of you a little bit. 6. PLAY HARD TO GET This is an old, old trick but it is still around because it works. You don’t want to be too easy of a prize to achieve. Don’t answer the phone on the first ring. Make him wait just a few minutes while you finish getting ready for a date. Most importantly, have standards and actually be hard to get. When you do this, you will be the one that ends up with the prize, a man of integrity. 7. BE BUSY This one is to be handled carefully. You don’t want to be too busy. However, you need to have a life and let him know that you do. Letting him be your whole world isn’t good for him or for you. This will only make you more attractive to him. ————————————– Read more in All Women Stalk   Op-ed pieces and contributions are the opinions of the writers only and do not represent the opinions of Y!/YNaija

10 (bizarre) facts about cheaters you SHOULD know

by Alexandra Churchill Hair color? Deep Voices? Facebook? See what else is leading to adultery, according to science. Size does matter … just not the size of what you think. A new study claims that women are more likely to cheat on their man if he has big balls. (Yep, you read that right.) Researchers from the University of Oslo studied primates — bonobos, specifically — and they found that a female is more likely to have other sexualrelationships if their mate has large testicles. And it doesn’t stop with monkeys. “In one type of grasshopper, the testicles occupy half their body mass. The testicles are even larger in sea urchins. They spawn directly into the ocean. To increase the chance of fertilizing an egg, the sea urchin is a huge testicle with a little shell around it.” The testicles of humans are one and a half times larger than those of gorillas, the team said. They claim this shows that we are an unfaithful race by nature. Personally, I’d like to know why they decided to study monkeys, bugs and sea urchins to determine human behavior, but I digress. The point is that you’d probably have to have big balls to interject yourself into someone else’s relationship. (Bro code, guys?) Still curious about other bizarre facts found from cheating studies? Here are 10 research-proven factoids that had us do a double-take: 1. Facebook: Is An Affair One Click Away? They say that Facebook can figure out how long your relationship will last … but maybe, the reason is because they are the culprit? A new study published in the journal of Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking suggests that the social networking site leads users to re-connect with old flings, which in turn is leading to more affairs, breakups or divorces. 2. The French Are Big-Time Cheaters They say that the French make the best lovers in the world, but that doesn’t make it true love. If you believe the findings from this study, probably not. A poll found that a majority of men and a third of women admitted to cheat on their partners, indicating that infidelity is on the rise in France among both sexes. Infidelity has been on the rise in that country since the 1970s, when only around 19 percent admitted to cheating (everything from kissing to swapping naughty texts). 3. A Slap For An Affair? An eye for an eye … or rather, a slap for an affair. As part of the Crime Survey For England and Wales, ten percent of the total 38,500 people surveyed agreed that “hitting or slapping” your unfaithful partner is appropriate for a betrayal of the heart. Yikes. 4. Cheaters Love Chain Restaurants Suspect that your partner is cheating? The first place you might want to scope out is a chain like Taco Bell. (You quiero … an affair?) The infamous extra-marital affair dating website Ashley Madison asked over 40,000 cheaters where they loved to wine and dine in secret, and thus, revealed the top 10 dining destinations to have an affair. Among them? Red Lobster, Outback Steakhouse, Chili’s and P.F. Chang’s. 5. Cheaters Also Love Shopping (At Banana Republic, Among Others) This isn’t exactly great PR for Banana Republic. After delving into the wine-and-dine habits of the unfaithful, AshleyMadison.com also scoped out the most popular shopping outlets. After polling 50,000+ women, more than a third admitted spending double on keeping up their looks for their secret lover. In addition, 27 percent said they even have a secret credit card to keep their financial infidelity under wraps. So what are some of the other popular stores for cheaters? J. Crew, Macy’s, Ann Taylor and H&M all ranked high on the list. (And here you thought she was just getting a new suit jacket for work.) 6. Faking the Big O Is A Big Red Flag If your partner is faking it in bed … watch out. It could be a bad sign that he or she is getting action in a bedroom somewhere else. One study claims that both men and women who faked orgasms were far more likely to be unfaithful. 7. Suspicious Of An Affair? Enter Kamikaze Sperm Another bedroom-based sign of possible infidelity? Clinical sexologist Dr. Lindsey Doe told  The Daily Mail  that a man’s sperm reveals whether he thinks his partner is cheating or not. According to her, 40 percent of ejaculate is made up of what she calls “kamikaze” or “fighter sperm” designed to block another man’s sperm from inseminating the egg. When a man suspects his partner of being unfaithful, he produces more of his fighter sperm to ward off other suitors. Granted, you need a microscope to see the differences for yourself, but just in case you have a lab handy … 8. Jews Are More Faithful Than Christians If your mom is nagging you to find a nice guy on JDate … you might want to listen to her. In an annual survey released by JDate.com and Christian Mingle.com that surveys the two online datingcommunities on their dating etiquette, social influences, and attitudes towards infidelity, an interesting result revealed itself: 84 percent of Jewish singles reported that they’ve never cheated in a relationship, as opposed to only 66 percent of Christian singles. (So it looks like the Christians over at ChristianMingle might be mingling a little too much, am I right?) 9. Have A Deep Voice? People Think You’re A Cheater Barry White might have had one of the sexiest voices of all time, but if this study is any indication, a deep voice is a perceived clue to infidelity. According to research published in the journal  Evolutionary Psychology , women fear that men with deeper voices are more likely to cheat on them whereas men think women with higher-pitched voices will cheat on them. That’s because the more testosterone a man has, the lower his voice, and the more estrogen a woman has, the higher her voice. 10. Blonde Women Cheat The Most Blondes have more fun (like, a lot more fun). CheaterVille.com conducted a survey to find out whether hair color could be an identifying factor in someone’s likelihood to cheat and blondes were caught red-handed. They found that 42 percent of cheating women have blonde hair. After blondes, redheads were second-most likely to cheat at 23 percent, followed by brown-haired women (20 percent) and black-haired women (11 percent). But we have to wonder if that’s au natural or not. —————————————— Read more in Your Tango   Op-ed pieces and contributions are the opinions of the writers only and do not represent the opinions of Y!/YNaija

You should try these: Top 10 home workout exercises

by Aloka Mehta Gambhir A good home workout is one that does not use equipment, takes up less space, adds strength, is great in a time crunch, and is flexible. We all face regular pressures with work, social commitments, family commitments, long commutes etc. Our fitness bears the brunt of this lack of time.

10 things couples should STOP doing on Facebook

by Carmen Chong It’s not easy to find a special someone that you’re so comfortable with and we’re honestly happy for you, but sometimes, we wish that you would stop talking about it so much. Occasionally, we understand that you’re so happy in love that you want to scream it out at the top of your lungs, and this is when you misuse Facebook.  Aren’t we all familiar with the annoying couple on our favourite social media site that’s highly obsessed with each other? Here are 10 things we think couples should stop doing. 1. Constantly changing their relationship statuses If you’re in a relationship, you’re in a relationship. Changing your relationship status every single time you’re angry with each other for something petty makes you look extremely childish and immature. Make up your mind and stick with it. 2. Posting mushy messages on each other’s timeline “I love you baby, you’re the best boyfriend ever.” You don’t have to keep reminding everyone that your partner is, well … yours. Everyone knows that you’re in love and that he or she is off limits. The mushy status updates you have on each other’s timeline is just plain disturbing and annoying. Please turn to private text messaging instead. 3. Uploading couple photos every time they go out Unless you’re visiting Paris every other week, there is no need to update us on your weekly trips to the local grocer or shopping malls. We don’t think that you need to commemorate every outing by snapping a couple photo. Even if you do, you might want to keep those photos to make a handmade scrapbook for your anniversary. 4. Arguing publicly Are you not aware that the whole world is able to witness your dissatisfaction with each other? Posting one comment after another about how he forgot to pick you up after classes today isn’t going to embarrass anyone but yourselves. Plus, EVERYONE will talk about you. 5. Putting up cheesy ‘monthsary’ photos Is it really necessary for you to declare your love for one another every time you’ve reached a milestone in your relationship? Not to mention, these lovey-dovey photos are also accompanied by paragraphs after paragraphs of how great he or she has been as a partner to you. Aren’t you running out of things to say already? 6. Overly gushing about the other half Some people post sweet random statuses about their partners constantly, and these are not about reaching a milestone or anniversary of any kind. To make matters worse, these statuses often start with the words, “Dear …”. If it’s meant for that special someone, wouldn’t it be more romantic if you sent them a text letting them know how much they mean to you? 7. Posting inside jokes nobody else understands At most, people will think that these statuses are all about the kinky sex the both of you are having and nothing else. But inside jokes are called inside jokes for a reason, which is why we believe that you should keep it to yourself. Don’t make us guess, and don’t make room for people to assume the worst. 8. Sharing photos of themselves in bed This is one of the worst offenses in coupledom and you should feel very sorry if you have been guilty of making your friends gag. It’s gross and you don’t need to show the world how intimate you are to feel validated by your peers. It irks everyone out, honestly. 9. Breaking up over Facebook Breaking up is a very private affair and should be done face to face, with the two of you alone together. The goal here is to keep your breakup on the down low and allow the news to disperse slowly, not blasting it on Facebook with the intention to embarrass and put the other person at fault for the breakup. 10. Uploading snogging   photos Urgh, TMI guys. You’re making everyone, including your close buddies, feel uncomfortable with the photos of you smooching. How do you think your parents and relatives would feel? Please keep these pictures in a private album on your phone for your own viewing pleasure.
