Believe it or not, sparklife in its current form is officially one year old, woohoo! It has been an immensely enjoyable year, where I’ve continued to develop many of my theories regarding dating and relationships. I hope you’ve enjoyed what I have published so far and here’s to many more years!
Before reviewing the articles from the last six months since the last review, I would like to quickly thank everyone who has read, shared and commented on any of my articles so far. Notable regular readers and contributors include Elena (if you’re a dog-lover then make sure you check out her website Too Kool Doggies), Joan, Eva, Pyrax, Dean, Fluffosaur/Starsparkle, Jon, some cute Canadian chick I know and everyone else.
Without further ado, here are all the articles from the last six months…
The first six-month review can be found HERE.
Relationship and dating articles:
This article outlines the one thing that leads to the downfall of most modern relationships. It is the dominant factor for almost all of the conceivably bad things that can occur. You’ll have to click on the link to find out what it is!
As the title describes, this is the story of the unique way that I met my long-term girlfriend Heidi several years ago. It is also a unique article in that it is the first time I have invited a guest-writer to contribute. After I tell my side of the story, Heidi provides her own take on events, so you get a special insight into how men and women react differently upon first meeting.
Whilst this article does give three clear topics to accompany the title, it may require some prior reading of some of my previous articles written on the ego to be fully understood. This article contains flexible advice, which is mainly useful for people who feel they must know every little detail about their partner and their partner’s past.
This article introduces a wildly misunderstood sexual practice that can be used to improve sexual performance. It goes into brief detail about what Kegel exercises are, how they can improve sexual performance and then most importantly, how to actually do the exercises.
This article explains three different types of lying and touches on the reasons why people lie in relationships and the potential consequences. There is also an interesting video linked to by Elena in the comments section about techniques for spotting lies.
This article lists a few common reasons for wanting to go on a break and then discusses some of the practical and psychological issues surrounding the topic. A worthwhile read if the topic is relevant, or potentially relevant to you.
This article dissects the psychology behind having romantic feelings for a friend before describing the only reliable techniques to starting a relationship with someone who you are firmly in the friend zone with.
This article suggests changing your mindset while in a relationship to be just as sociable as if you were single. This is a useful article to read whatever your current relationship status is.
This article is part one of what is, in my opinion, my best article series to date. It gives a detailed account of knowing how likely your partner is to cheat. There are some interesting discussions in the comments section too.
This is the follow up to the above article and contains an original diagram that can accurately predict how likely your partner is to cheat. This is highly recommended reading.
This article introduces a new format in the form of a reader challenge, based around the art of complimenting people. The exercise described is not difficult or time-consuming, but it is extremely rewarding.
This article explains how men and women differ emotionally when deciding to sleep with someone for the first time. It provides general thoughts on how to use these differing feelings to have smoother progressions in any relationship.
This article introduces some of my most cutting edge theories on love and how to manage what is ostensibly the most powerful emotion in the world. This article is the basis for a lot of upcoming articles I will be doing so it is definitely worth reading.
This article is aimed at invoking reader discussion, as everyone seems to have a different opinion on the topic. I share my own thoughts within the main content of the article.
This article discusses a topic that I became very good at breaking down and dealing with while working solely as a dating coach. It contains useful information about what is an extremely common issue.
This controversial article gives food for thought towards what has become a tradition in most people’s lives. Read the ten points and see if your opinions towards marriage change in any way.
The main part of this article is the embedded video I created that shows some of my journey meeting lots of wonderful women before finally meeting my girlfriend Heidi.
This is another highly recommended article with lots of insights, reader discussion and a useful diagram.
Every year I am saddened by how little decent advice there is for what may or may not be an important day to you. This article gives some ideas for Valentine’s Day, whether you are single, in a relationship, or anywhere in between. The advice is applicable for times other than Valentine’s Day so it is worth checking out any time of the year.
This article discusses and breaks down compromising; an extremely important and often overlooked aspect of relationships.
This article is somewhat related to the previous one but introduces a new theory that is the basis for connecting successfully with your partner. There is also useful information related to meeting and interacting with members of the opposite sex if that is relevant to you.
Thank you once again to everyone who has read, shared and commented on this website during the past year and I assure you the content is going to continue to develop. Please spread the word and keep visiting yourself.
I would love to hear what your favourite topics have been so far, or a specific favourite article if you have one, along with any ideas or suggestions you have to help make sparklife an even more valuable resource. 🙂
