A big age difference in a relationship isn’t a new phenomenon, but somehow it remains harshly judged. Bystanders quickly form an opinion on the relationship of an older man or an older woman with a young partner. An older woman seen out with a younger man must be a nymphomaniac, a younger woman with an older man is suspected of being a gold digger. The older man is looking to recoup his lost youth with a younger woman, while a younger man wants to brag about sleeping with an older woman. Pop psychology at its best. If you’re lucky, your friends will support you, but if there is a considerable age difference between you and your partner, be prepared for disapproval to some degree.There are three ways to deal with a big age difference in a relationship: 1. Before you can convince others that your relationship is for real, you need to be sure yourself. How well do you know your partner? Are you aware of the issues your age difference might raise? Do you have a future together? Do you want a family and will that be possible with your partner? If you are sure that your partner is right for you, you should be able to convince others!

Life can be hard for single parents, especially single mothers, looking for love . On the one hand, they don’t have many opportunities to meet single men – most of the men at the playground, the kindergarden or in the paediatrician’s waiting room are taken – on the other hand, not every single man is interested in a woman with kids.

Maybe you’ve heard of them, maybe you’ve even seen them before – people giving free hugs to total strangers in public places. You usually find them in busy places, in shopping centres, pedestrian zones and near train stations, carrying signs that read Free Hugs . Usually, they are also surrounded by a confused, amused or intrigued – and a few people who want to collect their free hugs.But what’s the point of all these free hugs? For once, this is a crazy movement that didn’t originate in the USA, but in Canada. There are several stories about how the Free Hugs Campaign started, but the gist is always the same: the guy who invented free hugs was sad and lonely and far from the people who could have given him a simple hug to make him feel better. He would have loved nothing more than a friendly hug at that moment, so he founded the Free Hugs Campaign , which has been spreading free hugs worldwide ever since:
Guys – ever wondered about the science of love?

He was put in an MRI scanner while thinking about and looking at photos of his wife and – tough competition – Angelina Jolie. The activity in certain areas of his brain supposedly tells him how strong his feelings of love, sexual attraction and romantic attachment really are.Would you dare (literally) show your emotions like that ? And, more importantly, would you want to show them to the woman you love?
