2) Manners: Always follow the manners. You should come on time at the venue. Even late for a few minutes can completely spoil the mood of your partner. The mutual exchange of gifts between the couple is also a well known trend on this day.

3) Rules for Boys: It’s your responsibility to take your soul mate to the venue by car ride. You should also be well groomed. Preferably, a man should wear light-colored shirt and dark pant with an attractive tie and well combed hair.

4) Rules for Girls: You should don a stunning outfit on the day of date, preferably a long white gown or a mesmerizing clean top and skirt. Use light make up because heavy makeup could just hide your inner beauty. Be on time and don’t forget to keep that charming smile with yourself as you go on to experience the first date of your life.

5) Conversation: When you are on your first date always make sure that both of you carry a sweet conversation that goes on and on. Certain topics such as Politics, Sex, Past Relationship and your work are strict no-no on this day. Instead you can enjoy listening to each other’s song, talk about each other’s hobbies, your likes and dislikes and so on.

6) Complements: It is well known that complements are never enough for girls, but the boy must complement her girl with flowery words instead of using the same repeated words such as beautiful, lovely, etc. You can use the words such as adorable, appealing, and astonishing. From view points of girls, she must avoid saying harsh words to her partner particularly that relate to his job and income.

7) Dance: This is the moment. Live it fully. Once your dinner is complete, the boy should lend his hand forward and ask her girl to dance. You should enjoy each other’s company for the next few minutes without uttering a word. During those moments let your chant more than the mouth. Certainly, this will bring smiles on your faces.

8) Eye Contact: This has always been a subject of debates. Many people believe in not making direct eye-contact with his girl friend considering it might be out of etiquette. While a girl doesn’t stare her boyfriend’s eyes to demonstrate her shyness. However, there is no need to fear, the first date is almost like a blooming flower when your love blooms inside the heart. Hence, you should continue making eye contact with each other on your date.

9) Good Bye Kiss: At the time of saying sayonara don’t miss the moment. When you are about to say good bye simply kiss each other’s forehead and say good bye waving your hand.

10) Keep The Friendship: Whether you like each other or not after the first meet, but carry on the friendship. He or she might have failed to fulfill your expectation of him or her, but keep your friendship continues. At the end of the day, you haven’t been made for each other but still you can be each other’s best friend.

10 Ever Enchanting Words to Motivate You this New Year

Life is a journey and the most interesting thing about it – no body of us knows where it will stop. The message is clear as long as we are alive it is important to live each moment of our life. No, you don’t have to view life philosophically but you should live it little more than what you have been doing until now.

The New Year is round the corner, and it is ideally the best time when you should start things afresh. However, we often lack the spirit to do so. Words matter a lot in our life. More you stay positive; you will enjoy your life better.

1) Dream: It doesn’t matter how you wish to fulfill your aim, but you can’t achieve anything unless you dream big. Whatever you dream make sure it is followed up with hard work and dedication as well. The success mantra of a life is to dream, discover and doing

2) Passion: We often read biographies of successful people and a common element that tied them together is Passion. Hence, if you really wish to scale the newer height of success in the New Year then you must be passionate. Always keep the essence of passion alive inside your heart.

3) Mistake: You might say how this word may inspire you, but honestly speaking a person can’t be successful unless he commits mistakes. Obviously for this very reason, the great scientist Albert Einstein stated, “A person who never made a mistake, never tried anything new.”

4) Peace: World peace might be elusive but inner peace is something that we can easily have inside our soul. This New Year, you should make peace a part of your life. However, in order to have peace in our lives we should abandon negative thought, anger and hatred from our mind.

5) Love: A human life is too short to hold grudge against somebody. Treat everyone with love and care. In fact, everyone is fighting a hard battle for survival. Therefore as long as you live keep things simple and love everybody whoever communicates with you.

6) Courage: Nothing is perfect in this world. Whatever you do there is always a chance of mistake. You should make yourself more courageous to accept mistake and correct them accordingly. It is also necessary that you should be courageous enough to pursue something that others didn’t dare.

7) Believe: Sometime we judge ourselves too much, and end up making things more difficult. A few decades if people hadn’t believed in going to moon, then it would have remained non-achievable until now. You should always believe in your capabilities even things are not smoother enough. You should simply believe that one day, everything will be normal and you will become successful too.

8) Innovation: The world would have been same if innovation was not there. All great people from various walks of life have successfully added the essence of innovation at whatever they did and that’s what made all the difference.

9) Change: Never fear the change. It will come with each passing day. For example; the world is not what it used to be centuries back or even a decade back. You should always accept the life as it comes even if it means embracing a few changes as well.

10) Integrity: The first thing everyone should try to achieve is the integrity of character. Unless you are a man of integrity, you can’t successfully achieve what you want. In fact, the word integrity is in itself an umbrella term and involves a lot of personal traits that every person should have in order to accomplish their dreams.

The list is infinite. But these top 10 words will definitely help you see things in correct perspective. We should live our life rationally with lots of positive thoughts, optimism and hope. There is absolutely no reason to see life as a burden. The winner sees it as a happy journey with lots of halt but that’s what makes the journey so special for each of us.
