  1. Having a six-pack is something that every guy aspires when it comes to having a good physique. If you are reading this article, it is highly possible that even you have searched something like this on the internet: 'How to lose belly fat?' 'How to get six-pack abs?' 'Easy way to build six-pack abs?' The search results that you may have gotten would be of fat burning drinks or fat loss exercises or belly fat burning techniques. Like everyone, you do those things and the end result is... nothing! © Getty Images It is high time you get it into your brain that there is no magical fix that can help you get a six-pack in a week. It needs hard work and dedication. Start with these basic steps: 1. Go On A Diet Everyone has abs, as it is the part of human physiology. The only reason people are not able to see their abs are for two reasons: a. They have a lot of body fat covering it b. They do not have developed abdominal muscles Let's cover the first part here. The reality is that you need to be on a diet to bring your body fat percentage down. At the same time, you would want to preserve the muscle mass you already have. To calculate the number of calories you need to eat for fat loss, simply multiply your body weight in pounds with 13. To preserve your muscle, have one gram of protein per pound of your body weight. If you weigh 160 lbs., this would mean: a. Calories = 160x13 = ~2100 calories b. Protein = 160 grams 2. Do Weight Training You need to lift weights to hold on to your muscle when you lose fat. © Getty Images Make sure that you are doing compound exercises aka exercises that engage your core, and are moving more than one muscle group at a time so that you build your core. You can also include direct ab training with and without abs to build them further ahead. 3. Lose Around 0.5 To 1% Of Your Body Weight Every Week You will definitely get started on a diet once you plug in those numbers from step #1 and start losing weight. Then, there will be two questions: a. How much weight to lose? b. How fast to lose it? To reveal a six-pack, you need to have around 10 to 12% body fat. So, until you reach that number, you will have to dig deep. To find your body fat number, you can use a lot of tools like online calculators or Inbody machines. Ideally, you should be losing around 0.5 to 1% of your body weight every week. If things are faster than this, you could eat some extra calories. If you are comfortable with it, you can pick up the pace a bit. If things have slowed down, you can either calculate the numbers again on your new body weight or you can simply drop 100-150 calories and things should pick up. So, go do the work and follow a plan instead of finding the next quick-fix for six-pack abs.

  2. Shahid Kapoor's version of 'Arjun Reddy', which is his upcoming movie 'Kabir Singh', is already being praised for the raw charisma he brings to the character. The promotions are on in full swing, and Mr Kapoor is once again out there, with his best fashionable self. We have always been on board with his sartorial choices, and he just reminded us why, with a pair of super edgy sneakers. Check them out. © Dolce and Gabbana We are in love with the futuristic, robotic vibe of the sneakers, and the angular heel only makes it edgier. © Instagram/theanisha Shahid is wearing the Two Tone Super King sneakers from Dolce & Gabbana. The mirrored metallic leather upper with contrasting details, along with the serrated edges make for a superbly modern aesthetic, that new age street style is all about. When it comes to how much they cost, they would set you back by 795 Euros, which when converted to INR comes around Rs 63,000. © Dolce and Gabbana © Dolce and Gabbana When it comes to what he chose to pair these statement sneakers with, we totally agree with the Pawan Sachdeva suit and the Paul Smith shirt. The outfit totally brings out the edgy appeal of the sneakers, which though boast of an aesthetic that's street, can fit in seamlessly on a red carpet as well. © Instagram/theanisha © Dolce and Gabbana All the best for 'Kabir Singh', Shahid. It does look extremely promising.
  3. Do you keep missing gym sessions due to lack of motivation? Do you find lame excuses to destroy your diet and screw your own fitness progress? Here, I am going to talk a little bit about human psychology and how you can kick the crutches of motivation and actually achieve the results you are looking for. Motivation is of two kinds: 1. Extrinsic Motivation - Motivation to act in a certain way due to external rewards such as money, fame, marks, and praise. E.g. – Losing fat so you can impress the girl that you like. 2. Intrinsic Motivation - Motivation to act in a certain way due to internal reasons. E.g. – Losing fat because you want to be fit and live longer. © Getty Images If you're losing fat because someone else wants it, you will lose motivation and go off-track soon. Apparently, our goal should be to shift our focus from Extrinsic Motivation to Intrinsic Motivation over time. This will give meaning to your goal! Okay, you get it now. But how to keep that motivation up, throughout? Let me tell you – even the topmost athletes lose motivation to stick to their Nutrition & Workout Plan sometimes. They're humans too. So what keeps them on the track? These things: 1. Structured Nutrition & Workout Plans: If you have a structured Nutrition & Workout plan outlined and customized according to your lifestyle, the chances of you going off-track reduce 10x. Do you know why? Because you look forward to the exercises and meals planned for the day. This makes you stick to the plan. 2. Meal Preparation For The Week: In continuation of the previous point, the preparation of the majority of the meals of the week will make you stick to the routine and minimize decision fatigue. © Getty Images 3. Fitness As A Lifestyle: Make fitness, your workouts and eating accordingly, a part of your lifestyle. All of this should never be a burden to you. Instead, all of this should add meaning to your life. 4. Flexible & Realistic Plans: If your plans are flexible, realistic and don't require you to eat salads all day, the chances of you to stick to your routine and keeping the motivated increase to a new level. You should indulge in your favourite foods moderately, whenever you want to. Summary – Stop waiting for Motivation to come and kiss your feet. Instead, create a routine that you can stick to and be disciplined.

  4. Ronaldo has the best physique among his counterparts in the sport and is one of the best athletes in the world. His day begins with a team practice session that lasts for about 3-4 hours, which includes football drills, HIIT drills, sprinting and weight training exercises. Ronaldo trains in the gym for 4 days/week. His lifting routine primarily focuses on enhancing strength, speed and a little bit of hypertrophy. This type of training is extremely beneficial for athletes. © Reuters Here are six tips that can help you in getting a body similar to that of the Juventus star: 1) Focus On Nutrition: For your body to look jacked, you need to get rid of excess body fat. To get rid of it, get into a state of calorie deficit. A calorie deficit is when you consume fewer calories than is required to maintain your current body weight. Lower body fat is required to showcase your muscles. For most guys, this is 7 to 10% body fat. © Unsplash 2) Pick A Sport: Sports can really help you to in staying active. Pick any sport whichever you like and enjoy it 2-3 times per week. 3) Lift Weights: Weight training is the base to look jacked like Ronaldo. Weight training has various benefits like improving your concentration, building muscle, burning fat, improved *** life, less risk of injury, etc. Hit the gym 3-4 days in a week and be consistent with it. Incorporate compound movements and isolation movements. Learn the motor-skill pattern to build your core strength. © Unsplash Full body movements like the squat, the bench press, the deadlift or the overhead press engage and train your core. Implement big movements properly in your training plan so that you can lift heavy overtime and gain a good amount of muscle. 4) Cardio- Doing some cardio will not hurt your gains if you take care of your nutrition. Cardio can help you to condition your physique, however, cardio can also be a problem if you do too much of it. You can do any form of cardio like HIIT (high-intensity interval training) or LISS (low-intensity steady state). 5) Sleep- Your body will never show signs of improvement if your sleep pattern is not on point. What do I mean by this? You need to get at least 6-7 hours of deep sleep. A good range is 7-8+ hrs for better recovery outcomes. Some might require more than 8 due to their genetics and stress. If you are not able to get at least 6 hours then you might face sleep deprival effects. 6) Supplements- Supplements can really help you fill the gaps. You don't have to take a ton of it and especially not bullshit ones like BCAAs, fat burners, testosterone booster, etc. In fact, I would suggest you take the effective ones like: 1) Whey Protein- Whey protein is more of a convenience food which can help you to fulfil your protein gap. Mostly required by vegetarians and vegans who find difficult to complete their protein intake per day. © Reuters 2) Creatine- Creatine can help you to look fuller overall. It also helps you to increase strength and lean body mass. 3-5g/day intake is sufficient. 3) Caffeine- Caffeine is a stimulant which can help you boost your mood before any intensive work. It boosts your performance in the gym and helps you do more work in a short time. A couple of shots of black coffee will do the magic. To achieve Ronaldo's physique you have to be consistent, disciplined and dedicated. Author Bio: Yashovardhan Singh is an online fitness coach with www.getsetgo.fitness, an online fitness platform.

  5. Due to the popularization of the fitness industry, thousands of fitness coaches are available right now and their demand is on the peak. Right from the 'not to be taken seriously' ones who teach you hacks to lose face fat and belly fat in 7 days to those who speak actual facts and back their practice with the latest evidence, you will find every type of trainer out there. © Unsplash The problem is that a lot of people fall easily for the quick hacks and sorcery-promising ones and do not really pay attention to the latter. That is unless they screw their happiness and waste their money on the quick fix ones and then go to the evidence-based practitioners. If you are looking to work with a professional for your fitness goals, here are a few qualities they should have: 1. Professionalism © Unsplash Like I mentioned, if you are looking to work with a professional, that is what they have to be. A professional. That means they should clearly communicate with the client what can be expected in the coaching, their timelines, what do they expect from the client, their coaching style, their communication channels and turnaround times. Along with that, what results the client can expect from the program and what are the things they would be required to do. 2. Ethical A coach who is trying to sell you a particular supplement or a fishy product under their sponsorship agenda or asks you to take certain drugs saying that you absolutely need it to get good results, are NOT the best lot to help you out. A coach should only 'suggest' supplements as it is not their role to make recommendations or ask you to buy things. They should suggest stating the benefits only and keep the decision-making power totally in your hands. Drugs, should not even come up in a conversation with your trainer. 3. Should Walk The Talk If your coach is obese, does not train regularly, does not eat well, seems like they themselves need a coach and are not the best person to be a coach to someone. By walk the talk, it does not mean they should be ripped and flash abs year round but should be what is considered fit and have a supporting lifestyle. If they don't, you will never be inspired to go an extra mile forward for them to get better or take them seriously in the first place. 4. Creates Plans Individualized For You © Unsplash If someone takes your money under the premise of coaching and ends up sending you some template files or cookie cutter programs, they are selling you templates and not coaching. Coaching, on the other hand, means that the coach in question takes information from you regarding your goals, your lifestyle, your current nutrition, training, sleep habits and then creates a plan suited for your lifestyle and goals. It is YOUR plan. Not the one that is a one-size-fits-all plan. 5. Transparency & Education A coach should not just tell you what to do and ask you to follow him blindly. A coach should be able to give you a satisfactory explanation as to 'why' a particular thing or a plan has been set for you and how it would benefit you. Along with that, the coach should equip you with the necessary information and education so that you can be independent after a few months to take charge of your own fitness. © Unsplash Yes, there still might be situations where you would still be with them. Be it a contest prep or a powerlifting meet or a sports event. But those are special instances or situations where someone keeping an eye on your progress and planning does help. But, if just staying in shape means you being with a coach and taking his coaching for a lifetime, that coach is making you a handicap and not helping you out in reality.

  7. While all of us sit at our desk jobs and dream of travelling somewhere nice for a holiday, one lucky bastard will soon be travelling the entire world for that job and even earn double, triple of what we earn. This dream job would be with Matthew Lepre, a millionaire from Australia in search of a personal assistant. Basically, he needs someone to assist him and travel the world with him and that too for free. He would be paying for this luxurious lifestyle while also paying about Rs 36 lakhs a year as salary. View this post on Instagram It's crazy, everything I ever visualised is coming to reality. The lifestyle, the business, the ability to give back and inspire people to reach their goals. ã°ï¸ Literally 3 years ago, I made the decision that I wasn't going to be another number in the system that our generation is brought up in. I dropped out of University and was left with a 40k student debt. ã°ï¸ My point is, that a lot can happen in a few years. Don't judge yourself for where you're at or where you've been. Only where you're going! ã°ï¸ And yea, ask more from life because seriously… you can manifest anything you want if you become clear on your dreams and match this with a ridiculous work ethic.â¨ã°ï¸â¨Dream (and eat) bigger. ð A post shared by Matthew Lepre (@matthewlepre) on Feb 27, 2019 at 1:13pm PST But, the competition is already so tough, even Matthew will have a problem picking out someone. The number of applications he's received is more than 40,000 and looks like he needs an assistant to help go through the assistant applications. He said, “I have received over 40,000 applications from people all around the world. I have definitely received far more applications from women (75 per cent) than men (25 per cent) and even a few marriage proposals too.” View this post on Instagram Pullin' up to the club like ð¥ A post shared by Matthew Lepre (@matthewlepre) on Feb 24, 2019 at 7:33pm PST He does know how much people want to escape the 9-5 hellhole and this is literally the exact opposite of that. He said, “A lot of people who are applying say in their application that they are working the 9-5 rat race and want to escape corporate life and are ready to bring the skills they have learnt to this role while travelling the world with me.” View this post on Instagram The good news is that fear is merely an illusion. Fear is something we invent. The only thing that gives it any power is when we listen to it. Train yourself to get rid of the illusion of fear and take calculated risks in life. If you fail, you learn. If you win, you earn. ð¨ð»‍ð»ð¥ A post shared by Matthew Lepre (@matthewlepre) on Mar 6, 2019 at 6:29pm PST He also added, “Travelling while I work has allowed me to live my ideal life and I want to give someone the opportunity to do the same alongside me. I'm looking for someone to join in all my adventures. I love what I do and I love exploring new places.” But what exactly does he do? Well, the college dropout started his business from nothing and now runs four e-commerce stores. And now, according to his Instagram bio, he's 7 Figure E-com Entrepreneur and earns more than $120k a month just 'from his laptop'.

  8. When it comes to royal Indian fashion, the first name that comes to our mind is that of Padmanabh Singh, the Maharaja of Jaipur. Also known as 'Pacho', the 20-year-old King has been making quite an impact in the international fashion arena. Right from setting the ramps of Milan on fire, to being the fiercest royal fashionista, he is the epitome of royal elegance. He recently posted pictures of the Holika Dahan that took place at the City Palace, Jaipur, and he looks straight out of an opulent Bhansali flick in them. Take a look. © Instagram/Pachojaipur © Instagram/Pachojaipur We are in love with the ivory sherwani paired with the silk white churidar, along with the royal safa accentuated with a red Bandhani dupatta. Also, the golden buttons and brooch, along with the bejewelled purple sword-sheath, are perfection. © Instagram/Pachojaipur © Instagram/Pachojaipur His outfit, honestly, is a reflection of the inimitable grandeur that the Indian royalty is all about. The splendour of the palace, in all its sheer luxuriousness, is perfectly mirrored in the way the Maharaja has clothed himself. © Instagram/Pachojaipur © Instagram/Pachojaipur The huge fire of Holika Dahan, along with the royal fireworks, is a reminder of the glory that pervaded all throughout India once upon a time. © Instagram/Pachojaipur © Instagram/Pachojaipur © Instagram/Pachojaipur © Instagram/Pachojaipur All we can say is, nothing can match the magnificence of these rituals, and the clothing that were a part and parcel of the proceedings.
  9. Jim Sarbh is the king of quirk, and no, we're not referring only to his choice of roles. When it comes to matters of style and fashion, the man is as non-mainstream as his roles are. Right from rocking gender-fluid ensembles to wearing clothes that manage to steal the collective thunder of the entire Bollywood. His latest avatar, however, is something we have never seen before. Take a look. © Instagram/Jimsarbhforreal © Instagram/Jimsarbhforreal Jim is legit looking like an edgy Indian king, wearing statement sherwanis by Shantanu & Nikhil. The impeccably stitched pieces spell elegance and royalty like nothing else, and we're obsessed with the innovative layering game. © Instagram/Jimsarbhforreal What stands out is the subtlety of the ensembles, in terms of the colour palette. The fact that they can look super conspicuous in spite of that, in terms of sheer design elements, is noteworthy. © Instagram/Jimsarbhforreal © Instagram/Jimsarbhforreal Modern Indian grooms can definitely take a leaf out of Jim's book when it comes to standing apart, as opposed to opting for the same old tried and tested outfits. The draping in some of the outfits are so unusual, that they are effortlessly ramp-ready. © Instagram/Jimsarbhforreal © Instagram/Jimsarbhforreal All we can say is, Jim's style game surely does look like it was 'made in heaven'.

  10. Men may feel like, from time to time, the fashion choices available to them have limited scope and variety. While we agree that the options are not as vast (or diverse) as they tend to be for women, there are actually many different ways to experiment with men's fashion. And one such deceivingly simple way involves investing in alternate necklines. Moving beyond the general round and v-neck t-shirts, and opting for something different will help you reinvent your fashion game, without having you put in much effort. This is where high neck t-shirts become such a godsend. They are proving to be quite the game-changers for men's fashion, and in most cases don't even cost a fortune to own. And so on that note, here are the best high neck t-shirts for men, all of which will warrant your attention. Explore Your Style With The Best High Neck T-Shirts For Men 1. Men Teal Blue Solid High Neck T-Shirt © Myntra Flaunting a high neck with zip closure, long sleeves, and a solid teal colour, this affordable variant from HRX gets a definite yes from us.

Either way, the colour and high neckline are going to make you more appealing and charming in the most effortless manner. Fabric composition: 100% polyester MRP: Rs. 879 Buy it here 2.

  11. The fact that Anil Kapoor doesn't look anywhere near his age has long been established and envious 30-year-olds across the country have been trying to make peace with that. However, he recently clicked some pictures with son-in-law Anand Ahuja, and he legit looks younger! In fact, courtesy their all-black ensembles, Mr Kapoor almost looks like he could even be Anand's younger brother. Now that's a lot to digest, considering he's 62, and as impressed we are, we are also confused AF about what on earth he is doing to 'reverse the ageing process', if you will. © Instagram/Anilskapoor Doesn't he look younger? And no, we aren't even referring to Anand's salt-n-pepper scruff and Mr Kapoor's jet black and partially highlighted crowning glory. He just looks younger, miraculously. That skin, that glow, that overall demeanour - age has got nothing on him and he proves it every single day! © Instagram/Anilskapoor In his Instagram post, he captioned the images "Boys Day Out! Subtle, no? Calling myself one of the boys?!" Well, you are, Mr Kapoor. You definitely are!

  12. Sujoy Ghosh is dishing out a brilliant revenge thriller called 'Badla', which releases tomorrow. Starring Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu in lead roles, the solid drama movie has already impressed everyone in its trailer. If you're planning on catching this gripping flick, here are 5 things you can expect from 'Badla': 1. Big B & Taapsee's Strong Performances- There is no doubt that these two stellar actors will not stand up to our expectations in the movie. We have already witnessed their fantastic chemistry in the courtroom drama 'Pink'. They are essaying the same role of a lawyer-client in 'Badla' and we're assuming the performance is going to be seamless this time as well. © Red Chillies Entertainment 2. Gripping Storyline- Trust Sujoy Ghosh to not disappoint you with what you can expect from a well-crafted movie. The trailer is already gripping and has left us intrigued. 3. It Is A Balanced Adaptation Of A Spanish Movie- If you didn't know this, 'Badla' is actually an adaptation of the famous Spanish movie 'Contratiempo' (The Invisible Guest), so comparisons are natural. However, the makers have done a fine job in spinning their own tale borrowed from the original. 4. A Good Bollywood Murder Mystery- After a very long time, Bollywood has shifted focus from biopics and other genres to explore something which boggles and keeps the audience engaged till the end. There is a dearth of good murder, revenge thrillers in Bollywood and hopefully, this movie will bridge the gap. The movie releases tomorrow, so make sure your plans are set in place for the weekend!

  14. Since we live in more tolerant times where relationships are concerned (or so I'd like to believe), a lot of people are choosing to make peace with their past. That's mostly because the world is shrinking and social media's unprecedented outpour of information really never lets you forget things. So, in order to keep your mind more sane and calm, it's only relevant to make peace with your past and by past, I mean your 'ex'. © Pintrest Most of you would want to loosen up the knotted ties between you and your ex and the reasons could be many. You could either want to shed away all the malice you hold for one another, or you still want them in your life because inherently they are good people or you still may have feelings for them, in which case, it's better to let go than figure out ways of having them in your life. But if the first two reasons are keeping your thoroughly confused then we have ways to make sure you have a healthy relationship with an ex. Here are 5 ways to keep in mind if you're looking at refreshing ties with an ex: (1) Are They In The Same Place As You? Yes, I know this is an obvious point to ponder over, but we seldom think what the other person wants in order to satiate what we want. So, the first step is to ensure your ex wants to be friends too. Because if she doesn't, then you really can't force free will can you? You can just wish them luck and hope they're happy. © Pintrest (2) Can You Trust Them Again? If you guys ended on bad terms then you have to think about how you want to go about this. If she did something to break your trust, can you accommodate trust in your equation, again? Of course, it wouldn't be in the same capacity as before, because you're not trying to get back together, you're trying to be in a good space as friends. So, if you trust your ex enough to not engage in any negativity or turn around and start a fight, then you should go ahead with it. © Twitter (3) Do Either Of You Have Feelings For Each Other? This one's a tricky one only because you may think you're over her, but you're really not and that can be a bit blurry while you're making a decision to keep in touch with her. Maybe sit down and give it a thought about your feelings for her. If you think they haven't changed since you started seeing her then maybe give it some time. © Pintrest (4) Do You Hold A Grudge? You can hold a grudge against your ex for a number of things, that is why she's your ex, to begin with! But if the grudge is minor and not too vicious then perhaps you can work on letting it go, if you think friendship with her is absolutely worth it. If it's a major grudge and cannot be reversed, then there isn't a point in looking out for any association, because you'll never be able to let the grudge really go. © Eros International (5) Have You Had Enough Time Apart? It's practically impossible to extend an arm of friendship when you've just broken up. Ideally, it takes about more than half the time you've spent with your ex, to maybe be friends with them, after you two break up. If you've never been friends before then it's a tad tough and only time apart can make that possible. So, take some time away from each other. If the break up is mutual and amicable, then definitely take time away and start a new association as friends. If it wasn't an amicable break-up, maybe take a lot more time away, get rid of the negativity you hold against them and try again. © Pintrest Break-ups are fairly hard but if two people are ready and willing for a resolution and want to take the dynamic from a negative to a positive by starting a brand new friendship, there are ways you can work things around and move away from the bad things that have happened and be good friends with your ex.
  15. One of the first prerequisites to date someone successfully is seeing how you're first date ever went with them to give them a second chance! That's how dating life get's a lifeline if you don't screw up on the first date or avoid a 'red flag' situation; then there is a bright chance for you to be a part of the second date. (c)Thinkstock/Getty Images So, in order to have the 'perfect' first date, here are 5 prominent red flags you can and should avoid and get to see the girl you really like for the second date! (1) Don't Act Miserly It's a date for heaven's sake, not a night out with the boys! So, if you do get the bill and you're splitting it, don't become a miser for the last rupee she may have left! What I mean is stop splitting the bill to the T and making sure she pays every penny of the split. Offer to pay and if she wants to go dutch just let her decide how she would like to. Either by paying cash or splitting the amount on the debit card is her call and you don't have to do severe math and waste time on the bill! (c)Pintrest (2) Do Not Treat The Wait Staff Like Shit If you're out and about and don't show any decency to the support staff at restaurants and hotels then you're in for trouble my friend. Let me tell you, the biggest red flag is unkindness and if you act like an entitled man where you shouldn't be acting like one, she's definitely going to strike you out. Women determine a man's character by the way he holds a conversation with other people as well. So, if you treat someone poorly, she's going to show you the door! (c)Pintrest (3) Don't Force Anything Women have a mind of their own and they like to speak it whenever necessary. So, there isn't a point in you telling her what to do or how to do it really. In fact that's a big turn off. Of course decide the evening unanimously, I am not saying let her take charge of the evening but steer clear of the things she rather not like you do. Understand consent and what it really means before taking any steps forward. If she doesn't want to come back home with you or invite you to hers, don't force her to do the same, it'll really not go down well. Have fun on your first date, don't dictate terms or be forceful. (c)Thinkstock/Getty Images (4) Keep A Check On Your Alcohol Intake First dates are markers for the second date. It's a good time to realise for both you and her whether or not you'd like a second date. So, it's best to keep your inhibitions in check and maybe not splurge on alcohol and get absolutely wasted. I mean if that's the plan to have some unadulterated fun, then go ahead but if you really want to get to know her and remember it the next day, it's wise to hold your drink. If both of you decide to get wasted then I guess that makes for a successful good first date too! (c)Pintrest (5) Misogyny Is Never Welcomed Misogyny could come under any form. You describing your ex in bad taste, you generalising other women, showing off about your work and putting others down, it takes all forms and shapes and more often than not we don't realise when we're being misogynists because of our conditioning. So it will be good if you're mindful of how you structure your words during a conversation with her. Even saying something as simple as ' you're not like the other women' can be termed as misogynistic. You may not realise it and you may think you're praising her but in reality you're insulting all the other women. Honestly, it's offensive to say the least. Give her more prominent compliments and keep the misogynistic comments in check! (c)Pintrest There are other red flags such as bad grooming and table manners, lack of confidence etc. but these 5 are very prominent because they tell a woman a lot about your conditioning as a man and talk more about your basic inherent mannerisms. A girl does judge a man by the most basic and fundamental manners he may possess and if you have these all sorted, you're definitely a liable candidate for the second date!
  16. While I agree that dating is hard in today's day and age, it's also necessary as a survival tool for the young generation today. That's because it's healthy and keeps the young people balanced and on their feet constantly. While dating has become the need of the hour, it's still circled as something only 'confident' men excel at. However, that's not entirely true. While you do need confidence to manoeuvre your dating game, you also need to be complete in order to look for another person. You can face nervousness while asking a girl out but what you need to remember is that the nervousness is just a solemn cover for making sure you don't ruin the game for yourself. In simpler words- it's okay to be nervous. © Twitter So, the next time you want to approach a girl and you think you lack the confidence to ask her out on a date, just remember these 3 simple things: (1) Let Her See You As The 'Nice Guy' Why don't we end the stereotype of 'nice guys finish last' once and for all? It's a give that women nowadays seek nice guys and not the usual chunk of 'bad boys' anymore. The sensitivity to be with someone who is kind and understanding is growing steadfastly and that's the side you need to show her. If you spot her at a bar or if she's someone you already know, it's time to show her your nice side. That doesn't mean put up a charade or show her a side where she ends up friend zoning you. It just means that you need to make her see you as someone she'd have difficulty finding, in today's and age. © Zee Studios Approach her with a conversation and find something of common interest to pick up on and start talking. Maybe have a deeper meaningful conversation and actually LISTEN to what she says. Not only will you come out as a good listener but also as a sensitive bloke. Just be the nice guy every woman wishes to find today. (2) Let Her See You As The Funny Guy Yes, agreed not everyone is funny but you can try appreciating good humour. I am not saying try your best to be humorous. Humour comes naturally, yes. But you can try and make her laugh the best to your ability. Humour always shows a very kind and soft side to someone. If you can muster up the courage to narrate a few jokes or make the conversation lighter with humour, you have her right then and there. If not, you can advocate some good humour and take her for some good comedy shows around town or a movie that's funny perhaps. Whatever you do, make sure you add the element of humour to it. © Pinterest (3) Let Her See You As The Chivalrous Guy They say chivalry is dead, but it shouldn't be. Chivalry is the mark of a man. If he's chivalrous, he's got it all. Chivalry includes everything- kindness, manners, etiquettes, compassion and being a gentleman. When we were growing up we often saw our fathers or men around show utmost chivalry. Be it opening doors or holding the chair back so a woman could sit. We don't see that anymore. Yes, women are capable of opening doors or paying the dinner bill but it's an aspect that gives women the additional strength and warmth they need, if and when a man is chivalrous. So, if you do go up to her, be your chivalrous best, to a point where if she sneezes, you hand her your handkerchief! Chivalry shouldn't die and if you gradually bring it back, you'll see the dating game change in your favour. © UTV motion picture So, if you have these three things sorted then you're good to go out and ask the girl you've been doting on, out. Just remember, pretence can only take you so far. So be your natural self and try and do your best. Your nervousness will fade away and you'll understand what women really want, clearly.

  18. You can certainly blame Bollywood as to why most women love big gestures and dramatic declarations of love. Something about going all out conveys the depth of one's emotions, apparently.

  20. If you're looking for someone to date or fall in love with in 2019, your timing couldn't be perfect. I don't just mean that because it's a brand new year and it's still the beginning, but because 2019 is a marvellous year of revelations and strengthening certain aspects about how you react to things around you. Just like how everything happens with an evolutionary spin, dating too takes that curve every once a while and permits us to seek new rules every time we want to start exploring the world with someone. Apart from the rules you need to stick to, for dating in different cities, there are something's which are stagnant and unanimous, in terms of qualifying as the 'deal breaker'. And for a man, in 2019 particularly, it's his tryst with honesty. © Eros International Even with a heavy spin off on finding the 'perfect match' at a brink of a second, we're still looking for folds of realism in people we ardently want to be with and if things aren't real, it's difficult to define what the intent actually is. The crux of everything a man is today or what he should be doing, is all matched up to how honest he is as a human being and if he's indeed as honest as he should be, greater good does come his way. In relationships though, which are certainly not archaic anymore, honesty has become a trivial concept and it certainly shouldn't be one. Because people are dishonest they move away and start swiping again but if you're honest to one another, you're amorous, even though you want to head in different directions eventually. So here are 4 pertinent things every man should definitely be honest about, if he's looking to date in 2019: (1) What You Really Want From Her The new year brings a new age, or that's the easiest assumption I summon. No, really, can we go a little old school here? Remember a time when there were no dating apps or much of social media influencing our decisions? We would take time to wonder and think what we really want out of a dynamic? Yes, let's bring that back. Be open about what you really want because honestly, women are done with men playing games or giving them the chase. If you want an open relationship, be vocal about it, if you want to be in a relationship, there's no harm sharing that, if you just want something casual, let it out, but there isn't any point of being dishonest about your intent, because when she finds out you're dishonest, you'll just be a man who lies and gets away with it! © Fox Star Studios (2) Are You Commitment Phobic? A commitment phobic person could break at any point in time. If you're not ready for a commitment, don't dazzle her with your charm and leave her to figure the rest. Let her know that commitment scares you and even if you really want to be with her and the big 'C' gets in the way, ask her to help you out with it. Maybe she can help you take it slow, maybe she can opt for something casual with you. Who knows? and you won't know either unless you voice out your very obvious concern. Don't let her find out through some 10,000 alarming signals you let off, during the day. © Fox Star Studios (3) That Sexism Scares You, Not Feminism Yup, as text-bookish as I may sound right about now, it's actually true. Be wary, you're always judged for that and that's not because women want to judge you till you evaporate, it's because equality is very important for them and if you're on the same wavelength, hallelujah! Women have found a voice in 2019, well they had one way before too, maybe you just weren't listening. But now, if you hear, they're saying it's okay to understand what they really need and want from a man, which doesn't reek of sexist behaviour and aligns with some feminist ideology. It certainly doesn't mean you have to embrace everything in the name of feminism, it just means you have to start being equals. Chivalry is great but maybe go dutch on the bill? Let her drive you for a change or even pull a chair back for you? © Eros International (4) Be Honest About Your Long-Term Goals You can slip it into a conversation or just have a long conversation and disclose all you want to about what you're looking at, in 2019. You could be looking at getting married or maybe just being with someone, whatever it is, being honest about it, rather than shying away from it is way easier and classier, might I add. © Yash Raj Films You could add-on more honest things to be honest about other than these 4 pointers and make a classic example of how you've understood what I am trying to say, or you can just press the little obnoxious cross on the top-right corner of your window and close this article, but let me tell you this- Who doesn't love an honest man? He can live a tough life but he'd never be forgotten and that's how important a role honesty really plays, in society and of course in 2019, today.

  24. On one hand where people in some parts of the world are fighting each other in the name of religion, there are some who are setting great examples of communal harmony with their selfless deeds. For instance, this Muslim family in Pakistan that has been taking care of a church which is over a century old. For 100 years now, the custodianship of the St. Matthew's Church has been passed down from one generation to the other. YouTube/ BBC News Located in the picturesque Hazada District town of Nathia Galiyat in Pakistan, this church is currently being taken care of by Waheed Murad, the third generation caretaker in his family. Murad has been looking after the church for almost 17 years now. His grandfather and father looked after it for 35 and 45 years, repectively. In fact, Murad is proud of his work and says that he is the only person in his area who knows how to ring the church's bell. Murad's family has been looking after the church by themselves, because the governement didn't make any efforts since there are hardly any Christians in the area. Speaking to the local media, Murad said "We believe in all messengers of God and believe in all the holy books, hence we give the same respect to this church, as we give to our mosque." If only more people could think like Murad, the world will be a better place to live in.
