Tops for a Casual Morning After

Even the best online personals won’t be able to tell you how to handle the morning after your hook up. They give no tips on keeping the after sex awkwardnessof the hookup from rushing you out and on to your day, nor do they give advise on what to say or how to act. In short, personals can only get you to the girl: the rest is up to you. Of course, these days there is no real need to worry over something like this because of the wealth of information at your fingertips. Instead of sticking with the tactics gleaned from friends and bartenders, consider instead what you might learn from those of us who have since mastered the art of the casual hookup.

Find out When She Needs to Get Up

“So, when will she wake up?”


The best part about this suggestion is that you can slip it in as needed and not have to worry about in the first place unless she specifically brings it up the night before. In most cases, rolling over in the morning and nudging her into answering this question will more than suffice. Of course, if she mentions something to you the night before like having to be in Leeds for brunch the next day, it will probably be worth both of your whiles to ask right then when she needs to leave to make her appointments the following day. Not only is this a really easy thing to make sure neither of you mess up and that hooking up does not affect your day to day lives, but it also makes you come off incredibly thoughtful, if not responsible as well. This, in turn, is going to make her that much more comfortable with you. The more comfortable she is, the better time you are going to have together. It’s as simple as that.

Stick to Your Normal Schedule

“You can wake up on your time”

Even though you are technically going to be interrupting your normal routine just by way of waking up next to someone you may not know terribly well, there is no reason to shake things up unnecessarily. The thing about sticking to your usual routine, of course, is that it gives you an outlet for any awkwardness you may have around interacting with someone you probably do not know very well, but now have to share morning rituals with. Something to keep in mind, however, is that not only are your morning rituals going to help you relax when you have too much awkward silence than you can deal with, but it will also remind her of things she can be doing to achieve the same. This opens up dialogue at least in the realm of where the sink is and how you will be handling the hotel bill if that is the case.

Keep in mind, of course, that since you are now sharing space with someone else who also needs to get up and go somewhere, it is very likely that you will have to adjust your routine to include her as well. This is part of the reason we suggested finding out when she has to be up and about, or at least the time he has to get out the door. This way you can work your own needs around the time it will take her to get ready as well. This is especially important in a situation where you are sharing a bathroom such as in a motel or hotel, as it will more than likely take her longer than to get cleaned up and ready to leave if she has to be somewhere. Other than that, however, stick to what you know and a routine you are familiar with to help settle your own nerves. If nothing else, the familiarity will carry you through any awkward moments and let you slip out with some grace. The more you do this, the more comfortable you will get with it.

Consider Breakfast, but Don’t Make a Big Deal of It

“Have breakfast in bed – A great idea to kill the awkwardness”


Now, if you hooked up at your place, her place, or somewhere with a kitchenette, throwing together some breakfast can be a great idea for pulling off some charm the morning after. If you ready through the best online personals, you will probably notice a trend in the profiles that seem to be the busiest and for men that is often someone who can pull off a little charm to keep the women coming back. With online dating it does not necessarily have to be all about a new woman every night. In fact, finding someone you want to call up again later, because you had a good time with them is actually pretty common, not to mention easier than having to go back to the website every single time you want to hook up. Keeping them interested, however, means giving them a reason to come back and for a lot of women the devil’s in the details.

We are not, of course, suggesting that she is going to hop the first bus to Leeds just because you fry a mean omelet. The takeaway here really revolves around showing her a little extra attention outside of the bed. In other words, it helps your gentlemanly appeal. Of course, if you do not know her very well and do not intend for the hook up to become something much more, it is important not to make this out to be a big thing. In fact, keeping it very simple is your best bet for both making her happy and keeping her from getting the wrong idea. This means no breakfast in bed or meals that take particularly long to put together. In a lot of cases it could just be having some decent tea on hand and some toast or a egg, or both. Make yourself something regardless, but offer to make her something while you cook it to keep it casual but make sure she knows the offer is there. This is meant to be nothing more than a nicety between two people, but it is still a little more than most expect.

Compliment Her, but Don’t Be Crass

“Girls love compliments- Let her know you had a good time with her”


Lastly, let her know you had a good time. That’s the least you can do for your online one night stand. To learn, what are the best personals sites on the internet, read online personals website reviews. The best online personals in the world are not a substitute for in person compliments and if she really pressed all the right buttons last night, make sure she knows. Of course, unless you really want to go for another round, it’s best to stay classy with the descriptions and compliments. Even if you do want another go of it, remember that she is probably going to react better to charm first thing in the morning than anything else, no matter how smooth the seduction. Basically, appeal to her ego and do it as if you were in a public environment. She is more likely to enjoy the compliment if it does not sound like it came straight out of a porno. Of course, if she ends up in the mood for some dirty talk afterwards, feel free to indulge. In the end, most of our suggestions ere on the side of caution for the sake of appealing to the widest array of situations and women you might possibly end up with, so adjust accordingly.

When Private Cam Shows Aren’t Private and Other Common Scams to Avoid

“Avoid Scams at all cost”


Whether you got lucky on the first link your search engine provided, or you ended up on a long and drawn out search for the perfect site and model combination, the chance that you might end up scammed has probably been sitting in the back of your head the whole time. And why not? It’s one of the most common problem to run into online. It doesn’t really matter whether you are looking for gay men hosting live cam streams or a deal on a new computer component: the Internet is littered with sites devoted to taking you and your wallet for a ride. It just happens to be something associated more with the part of the internet you end up on when looking for a little adult companionship.

Regardless, while the threat of being of being scammed is omnipresent, what you need to look for is going to change from one kind of website to the next. For cam sites, what people watch out for and what actually has a likelihood of happening are two very different things. Mostly, this steams from the fact that everyone thinks they are going to be hacked when they go in search of porn of any sort. When it comes to online webcams, however, you are far more likely to fall prey to more standard scam practices than run across overtly malicious code. Unless you are downloading something to your computer and allowing it to run, it’s much less likely for your computer to be threatened than for you to end up paying out more to a cam site than you intended.

How Models and Sites Make Their Money

“They offer a good show”


Mostly, this all comes down to how these sites and their models make their money. Hosting streaming video isn’t exactly a cheap business to get into. You need server space, bandwidth, a technical support team, and website coder just to start. Depending on how much money is being thrown in from the beginning and how much control the parent company wants over how the streams look, they may even purchase and furnish a facility for their models to work inside. As you might imagine, that can very quickly become a lot of money thrown down at once. Thus, making it back is a top priority. At the very least, this means getting the most out of each and every model they have, and for models that means not taking home too terribly much of what they bring in. This means you are essentially entering into a situation where these men are extremely motivated to get you to buy something and as much at once as possible.

Of course, you also have the less than stellar billing practices that often follow as a result of this desperate need to make good on a large initial investment. This is usually reflected in how a company is trying to make their profit. If they are a free site, most of this is going to come back to them through ads and the like, which means you really have to watch what you click to avoid authorizing something to run on your computer. On the other hand, subscription based sites may join up together so that when you decide to sign up for one you are actually agreeing to pay subscriptions on three or four. That, is an actual scam, and most of the time you just have to take the hit and move on Then, of course, there is the tipping model. Sometimes companies take a percentage off of what the model brings in and sometimes they charge you a fee to add money to your account or buy tokens. For these sites, it’s all about the conversion rates. Keeping an eye on what you get for you money in comparison to what else is out there will make all the difference between getting your money’s worth and paying way too much for something you can get elsewhere for a better price.

Recognizing a Private Session That Is Not as Private as You Think

“You are not the only one”


The sites themselves aren’t the only place you might get scammed. When you are trying to get some live fun, visit queercamreviews.com. Find the best sites for live gay cams and stay away from scam boys. One of the most common ways you’ll find gaycam performers pulling one over on their clients is by hosting private sessions that aren’t really private. Just because you think you are having a one on one with your preferred male model does not mean he is not willing to log several sessions for the same time and host multiple streams at once. After all, private sessions, which are often billed by the minute, are the more lucrative option for nearly every kind of cam performer out there. The only way to make it a better option for them is to somehow do more of them in the same time frame as one.

The problem is they actually can. Not only this, but it is something many cam sites encourage. In fact, there are some cases where it is the site convincing the model that he should be doing more than one private sessions at a time, and sets them up accordingly. We mention this, because a lot of guys think registering a complaint with the hosting company is going to resolve this. Most of the time, though? Whatever they say to you, they are probably just giving the performer tips on how not to get caught out again. So keep your eyes peeled if you end up in a private session, and try to gauge things like how quickly he responds to your comments and requests. If he’s being slow or unnecessarily vague, it might be a clue that he is trying to entertain more than one person at a time, in spite of what the session was designed for.

Paying for Things You’ll Never Use

“Don’t waste your money”


This is a frequent scam on cam sites of any kind. Gay men, straight women, BDSM or vanilla: any site that has a token or tipping system is liable to force you into buying groups of credits or tokens instead of exactly what you want. Typically this works out in odd increments like a strip tease costing 120 credits, but you can only buy in batches of 50. This, in turn, means you are more or less paying for things you will never use. It may not seem like a lot, but this sort of trickle down from everyone who visits the site can quickly add up to a lot of unearned money.

The Never Ending Subscription

Something you are probably familiar with from other porn sites can rear its ugly head in cam sites too, so be on the lookout when you sign up for subscriptions. Live cam sites are just as notorious for locking you into a subscription you can never get rid of as any of their prerecorded counterparts. This is part of the reason we actually suggest using prepaid cards on subscription sites. If this becomes a problem, it is a lot easier to just cut up a card that can’t be charged for more than it is worth at any given time than to convince a company to reject payment requests.

Wikipad – The Gamer’s Tablet?

The tablet is expected to gain more following not just among the casual Internet browsing people but also with the hardcore gamers. With the gaming industry innovating to accommodate the demands of the ever-expanding market, it is inevitable that a gaming tablet will take a stage in the tablet market. The Wikipad, flagship product of an independent company of the same name, is expected to be available this year during spring time.

It is touted as the gamer’s tablet, so today we are going to verify such a claim.

Price

The Wikipad is priced at $250. That makes it around the price level of Google’s Nexus 7, making one of the cheaper tablets in the market. But what do we get for $250?

Wikipad Announces UK Launch Date for Android Gaming Tablet

Display

Wikipad offers a 7-inch display screen with a maximum resolution of 16:10. That means better graphics quality than the typical tablet pc in the market today. Although you must know that this is a downgrade from the original 10-inch display for cost-cutting reasons.

Processor

Wikipad is powered by Nvidia’s Tegra 3, a quadcore processor that also powers the Nexus 7. This should give the performance power needed to satisfy the average gamer and, possibly, hardcore gamers who want to try the tablet system. However, there should be a matching memory capacity for such a powerful processor.

Memory

Despite its powerful quadcore processor, the developers of Wikipad settled with a 1gb RAM. That is quite a far cry from what I would expect from a tablet designed for gaming. This is bad news for hardcore gamers. But the casuals will be satisfied.

Storage

Wikipad comes with 16gb storage and can be expanded using a micro SD up to 48gb. That is a lot of games. But the Wikipad is also capable of other applications. You can always add apps like Facebook and instant messengers if you want.

Battery Life

The paper battery life of Wikipad is 8 hours. This is still to be tested this spring since tablet games today have different battery demands depending on the visual quality. 8 hours could mean 8 hours for games like Fruit Ninja and Angry Birds. It could mean lower battery life for games like Shadowgun: DeadZone and Dead Trigger.

Weight and Size

Wikipad comes with the typical console found in PSP and Nintendo DS. So expect a bigger tablet than the average. The tablet is 2.57 inches thick and weigh at 1.68 pounds. That means a bulky device compared to IPad and Nexus 7.

My conclusion is that Wikipad is physically designed as a gamer’s tablet but there are a lot of areas to improve to really attract hardcore gamers. If it just intends to attract casuals then it will have a difficulty competing with the tablets already in the market today.

Myths About Sunscreen And SPF

Sunscreen application is a great way to avoid skin damage from sun exposure. Whether in the city or in the beach, sunscreen is indispensable. Numerous sunscreen brands have popped up in the market, with the largest SPF values and what not. We all know that we should be looking for broad spectrum sunscreen and apply it frequently, but there are some important facts about sunscreen that are not known by consumers. This article hopes to give you vital information needed before purchasing sunscreen, by listing down the five common myths about sunscreen and SPF.

Myths about Sunscreen and SPF

1. All sunscreen products are made out of the same ingredients.

Consumers should be aware of the ingredients that make a ‘good’ or ‘bad’ sunscreen. Ingredients such as propylene glycol, parabens, fragrance and mineral oil should be avoided because they often contribute to skin irritation, especially to those with sensitive and dry skin. Oxybenzone should also be avoided since there is evidence that it may cause hormone-like activity in the body.

412

Sunscreen Myths

What makes a ‘good’ sunscreen would be ingredient combinations like titanium dioxide plus zinc and avobenzone plus octocrylene. These ingredients are recommended because of their high refractive index, strong UV light absorbing capacity and resistance to discoloration. These properties enhance the sunscreen’s ability to protect your skin, and are thus what you should look for.

2. You should always buy water-resistant sunscreen.

When out surfing or swimming, water-resistant sunscreen is always better but when indoors or in school, the best sunscreen that would go under makeup would be non water-resistant. Makeup conscious ladies should look for sunscreen that is easily absorbed by the skin. There are numerous products in the market that offer these properties and also contain different antioxidants that rejuvenate your skin.

3. You can’t use sunscreen under the eyes.

The area of skin around the eyes is relatively thin and sensitive. Because it is most prone to sun damage and wrinkling, protecting it from sun damage is very important. The normal sunscreen would not be effective in performing this job because it may cause irritation or a sensation of burning around the eye. The best way to tackle this problem is to look for products which have been ophthalmologist tested and specialized for the specific area. It’s also helpful to buy products which have collagen boosting properties to help alleviate wrinkling.

4. You only need to protect your skin from UV-A and UV-B damage.

It always important to look for sunscreens which offer broad spectrum protection but infrared rays, which are often ignored, should also be considered. Infrared rays also contribute to skin damage and skin aging. If you are working in an office in front of a monitor, it is recommended to use sunscreen which contains vitamins and antioxidants to help neutralize free radical damage.

5. Sunscreens do not have expiration dates.

413

Is SPF 30 Sunscreen Really More Effective Than SPF 15?

Like cosmetic products, sunscreens do have expiration dates. The expiration dates do not signify the time at which the sunscreen loses its efficacy but rather, it specifies a time at which bacteria and fungus have probably colonized your sunscreen! (disgusting!). Sunscreen have a shelf life of about two years from when it was made so better pay attention to those dates.

The best tip to remember is wherever, whenever, always apply sunscreen! (Well, unless you’re going to bed) Putting on sunscreen should become a habit and so you should choose the sunscreen which best works for you.

The Truth About Travel Insurance Revealed

Travel insurance is a tool for financial protection against unforeseen circumstances during a domestic or an international travel. Policies vary in coverage and exceptions which require careful review and attention to details for a total maximum security. Buying one is making sure you need the coverage and that you get to claim when things turn out unexpectedly.

Evaluating the Need for Travel Insurance Coverage

Ask yourself these questions before procuring travel insurance. If you answer “yes” to even one of the questions, it is likely that insurance is a necessity.

  • Are you into an extraordinary far destination or overseas travel?

  • Are you participating in extreme sports?

  • Is emergency return trip affordable to you?

  • Do you have medical care coverage as you travel?

Travel insurance is offered in a package of various coverage. Go through them to identify those risks you are not likely to encounter and those you already have existing protection against. The offer may not be worth it and a customized policy may work well for you. However, note that the probability of saving a big chunk equals the probability of saving so little or none at all.

5 Points to Consider in the Selection of Appropriate Travel Insurance Policy

Knowing the important considerations to ensure you have the appropriate travel insurance policy is a must before acquiring any travel insurance.

  • Coverage and exceptions: Know the protection you will need. It is not enough to know the coverage without equal knowledge of exemptions. Whenever there comes a need to cancel a trip after payment has been made, chances are you will not be refunded in full. This is where your insurance takes the role of paying for the difference or the amount not refunded. Your reason for cancellation must be listed among covered reasons. To top it all, get a policy that offers a comprehensive medical cover and includes any and all reason for trip cancellation.

  • Definition of “unforeseen event”: Natural disasters are generally excluded from the coverage of unforeseen events. This includes earthquake, lightning, volcanic eruption, and flood. If you feel the need for inclusion of such nature, verify with the insurance company the possibility of an addendum.

  • Pre-existing medical conditions: This is a general exemption in most health and life insurances. Evaluate the policy if you opt for the inclusion of any pre-existing medical condition. In some companies, the illness of a family member is viewed as pre-existing and may hassle a claim against trip cancellation with this reason.

  • Duplicate coverage: Match existing coverage with the travel insurance you are purchasing. There may be a double coverage and you may be paying for something you are already protected against. To best illustrate, homeowner’s insurance and some credit card companies provide cover to lost luggage. If you have one, you may want to slash off insurance payment for the portion.

  • Fine prints: Disregard the find prints and you waste your money. Exemptions do not form part of an attractive insurance offer and are usually printed in the most unnoticed ways. Put to mind that they are definitely a part of the conditions you adhere to and usually, they state what is most likely unfavorable for you.

The Basic Coverage Travel Insurance

These are categories fundamental to most travel insurance policy:

  • Trip cancellation

  • Baggage protection

  • Medical care

  • Emergency medical evacuation

  • Accidental death

The cost may be for every category but in most cases, the insurance is offered as a package. Overpricing happens and you would want to procure one from an insurance company of good reputation.

What to Consider Before Buying a Franchise

You have to face some tough questions. Ask yourself if you really have the ability and the capacity to accomplish things that needs to be done in handling a franchise. One of the biggest things that you need to be sure that you can do is if you have enough time to handle it and lead it to success. You may be caught up in a type of lifestyle that would make you not available to do the most important things for the franchise business or, hold you back from sticking with the kind of lifestyle that is best for you and your family. Think over these things. Also try to ask yourself if you can follow the system that should be done with it or if you have tendencies of compromising or doing things your own way which could be very risky.

Try to look into the potential compensation

Buying this franchise may in some way sacrifice some things that you used to have or may add more benefit than you already have. It could be any of these. Find out which of these results will happen to be sure that you’re not going to sacrifice anything. This could make you earn less than what you used to and that might make you give up some things that you were able to give your family back then. Not everyone is comfortable of an adjustment such as this so try to find out for yourself if you’d be up for this or not – if this is the case, that is!

Think about what benefit you can get in the future

If you would come to the point of wanting to sell your franchise to someone else, then you need to make sure that it won’t be too hard to do that. See if this type of market is something that a lot of people are looking for.
