I can’t stand my boyfriend’s friends.

I have been dating my boyfriend for about two years. Our relations are not easy. Anyway it seems like he is exactly who I need in my life. He is interesting and hardworking. By the way his name is Joe. We met at a party of our mutual friends. Sometimes he seems to be just a perfect guy. Even though people are not perfect at all. Anyway he is perfect. Why so? Well, he tries to do his best. He springs surprises and I like them very much. But I have a problem. I just can’t stand his friends. When we meet his friends Joe changes. It seems like he is absolutely different. They joke about stupid things and it is absolutely okay for them to joke about me in my presence. They are not interesting at all and they are not interested in anything. They are ready to hang out every single day just doing nothing. Girls, alcohol, parties are the only things they are interested in. They want to be cool but you know they are not cool at all. I’m bored when I meet them. They have no hobbies. Well, I think some of them go in for sport. But I’m not sure actually. If even they do it their aim is to attract chicks. Why so? Well, people who pay much attention to their health do not drink so much as they do. When Joe leaves me just for a moment I have know idea what I can discuss with them. We share no common interests. I do not know anything about cars. That’s another issue they are interested in. “Look at me I have bought new Ferrari”. So what? I wish you bought new brains. And what can I do? I mean it seems like my boyfriend like his friends. But they are so different. Joe is sporty and cares about his health. He doesn’t drink. He even has never tried to smoke a cigarette. His friends are confirmed smokers. Joe is interested in arts and he expresses his interest in classical music. We do have many common interests. We like to travel and go to cinema. So usually we meet his friends in the bars or at the parties.

Tips for Those Who Travel With Pets

Your pets won’t get absorbed into a book during the travel. They won’t be constantly asking “Where are we now?” and won’t spill the juice all over the backseat. But they have their own natural demands which should be met during the trip so their owners are to plan carefully the necessary things and get ready all the items that may be required.

  • All the pets traveling together with their owners are to have the vet passports and the certificate of vaccination. Each time you go traveling you may use the luggage label with the address and contact information of the owner and the surety in the case if the owner is not available.

The Rules of the First Date

Much has been already said about how the girls should behave and what to say during the first date, yet there still remain questions without answers. Let’s summarize our knowledge concerning this topic and prepare for your greatest adventure – the first date.

The preparation begins far before this event – you choose what to wear, try not to eat much on the previous day in order to have a flat stomach at least for one evening, you may even decide to go to hairdresser. I know that some of you will disagree with me, but I will nevertheless risk saying – it is all pointless. Yes, you have heard me right, I think the most important thing is to look natural, to feel comfortable in your clothes and be yourself. Do you really think that the guy will notice that your skirt is fashionable and expensive? Believe me, it is your smile and your shining eyes that will attract him more than any dress.

Next, a few words about what to say. It is quiet easy – say what you want, do not pretend to be someone else. If the guy do not want to accept the real you, than there is no reason to continue dating him. I advice you also to listen to your partner attentively and do not interrupt him. Ask questions, show that you are interested in him, but try not to be annoying, some questions are not permitted on the first date, like, for example, how much money he earns and what is the number of his ex girlfriends. As for the topic of exes, avoid it completely! Do not compare him to your previous boyfriend even mentally, though I know this task may be hard to perform.

Want a cheap trip?

I love traveling. It has always been a special point of my life. I love seeing new places, meeting new people, experiencing fresh emotions, and just escaping from the routines of my daily life. So, this is a very exciting, but expensive pastime. But in fact, making some effort, you can travel all over the world almost for free. To tell the truth, the idea that traveling is expensive is distributed by the touristic companies, hotels and the media themselves. Obviously, the tourist business is interested in you buying only “all inclusive” vouchers. But you can arrange your trip yourself, and see how cheap it is.
So, first of all you can cut down expenses on your air tickets. Monitor to prices. It can happen that the price for the tickets could be reduces approximately two weeks before the departure, and then a few days later jump again. Try to follow the prices on such avia companies as Momondo and Expedia. It’s very likelihood you’ll find something extremely cheap.

Then, obviously, you should book a hotel or a hostel. If you’re planning to visit a touristic country, like Turkey, Egypt or Thailand, you’d rather book a hotel. There’s no need to book five-stars hotels: hotels of lower rating are still comfortable: finally, you’re going there not for staying in your room. Three or four stars hotels are perfect as well. Moreover you may choose a hotel only with breakfast included. It’s quite comfortable in the morning as you needn’t look for a cafe around, but take a fresh and healthy meal.
If you are not accustomed to deny yourself nothing, then you can stay at a high-class hotel, but find a companion. As you know, living in a single room is way more expensive, while double rooms are always more profitable. If you go on vacation with your child, choose a hotel that offers discounts for kids.

Another way to save money on hotels is to choose a low season. It’s not a secret that Christmas holidays are one of the most favorite time for traveling. If you don’t want to be dumped with crows of countrymen, you’d rather choose another month.For example, it’s known that in some counties in November and the first part of December it’s not that crowded.

The best friends

Things change. Feelings change. We all understand that. Life may be hard at times: beloved ones leave us, we and our friends may have a period of falling out, and our parents can’t live forever.

But in this changing world we still need something permanent. We need someone who will wait us at home no matter what. Someone who will understand us without any words. This is why most of us get pets.

It can be fish or a dog, a cat or a mouse, a bird or even an exotic cockroach. I am a cat person. I have a cat, who is ten years old, he is waiting for me to come home every day. For ten years. A lot of things changed since I got him. I have other friends now. I also have other boyfriend, I even moved to other city. The only thing that remained the same is my cat. He doesn’t care if I can cook, he doesn’t care how I look and what I wear.

I will never give him away, not even if my future husband asks me to. Because giving away a cat that lives with you for ten years for a man you know for a couple of years is not right. I am sorry if it sounds too cynical. This is just the way I feel.

Your pet’s love is unconditional. This is why we love our pets even more. When you are home on a cold winter night and your cat is sleeping on your lap, it is unbelievably soothing. And when your cat purrs, how can it be any better than this?

People who like dogs say that a dog is the best friend of a man. They say dogs are more devoted to their owners than cats. We’ve all seen “Hachiko”. And most of us cried, I am sure. This is the kind of devotion we all are looking for.

It’s a known fact that pets can help sick people to recover. There are hospitals where cats “help” to cure patients. First of all they affect our mood, they cheer us up so we can keep fighting diseases.

Pets are the best companions, they watch TV with us, they stay close when we cook, they follow us when we go to bed at the end of the long hard day. They say if you have a pet you will never be lonely or bored.

You can find a huge number of pet pictures online, some of them are funny, and some of them are just incredibly cute. Pet pictures it is the most popular category of pictures.

I am deeply sorry for all the people who are allergic to fur. But there are very good options even for these people: there are special breeds of cats that don’t cause allergic reactions. They probably cost more but isn’t it worth it?

If you never had a pet in your entire life, I must tell you: you are missing out a lot!
