8 Signs Your Partner Is With You Because Of Love (Not Just Sex)

Relationships. You never know for sure if it’s going the right way, but you know that you want it to work out. Unfortunately, many guys and girls end up in relationships that involve unrequited love, abuse, disrespect, and just toxic behavior that leads nowhere.

It’s true – there will always be people who will want to be with you for a personal gain – sex, money, having a babysitter, or just using you for the status called ‘relationship.’ These relationships take the best of us.

In such relationships, you will find yourself struggling and you will continue with the struggle even when you get out. You simply find people hard to believe after spending time with someone who didn’t love you at all and simply used you.

However, not everyone is like this. There are people who still believe in being with someone because of love, and you are sure that someone is truly in love when you see how dedicated they are to the relationship.

So, how can you know if someone is in for the love, and not just for sex?

1. They are genuinely interested in your life and well-being

A person who is with you just for the sex won’t care too much about your life and your well-being. They might show concern if you have gained a few pounds (and might even ghost you for this), but they will never try to learn what led you to that state.

If someone is truly in love with you, they will be interested in everything about you; they will truly care about what is happening to you, how your day was, and they will never spend a day without asking if everything is alright with you.

Even if they are not so much on the ‘wordy’ side, they will show this genuine care and interest in every possible way they know and can.

2. They tend to you when you are sick

Your only-interested-in-sex lover will be disgusted by your pale face and stuffed nose if you get sick. In fact, they will wish you to get better and they might be frustrated that you can’t pay attention to them because of your situation.

However, a person who is with you for the love will try to cancel every arrangement they had and tend to you. They will run with the tissues after you and they will fetch medications from the pharmacy at any time. They simply care about you and they will do everything to make you feel better.

3. You are on top of their priorities

Not only when you’re not feeling well – a person in love will always have you on top of their priorities. Since when are the friends more important than you?

You may both like to have some nights out with friends, but that person will never put others in your place.

If you are with someone who’s in just for the sex, they will be done with you the moment you’ve had your ‘fun time’ and they’ll run after their priorities.

This is not the case with a person in love – in fact, they don’t prioritize sex the way they prioritize you and your place in their life.

4. They will always make time for you

We are all very busy – being busy is what makes us push forward, really. But a person in love will never be too busy when it comes to you. They would even ‘sacrifice’ that little time they have left because they don’t see it as a sacrifice.

Someone who’s just in for the sex won’t have time for you if they’re not in the mood for some ‘play.’ You know that someone loves you when they make time to listen to your silly complaints about trivial things when they make time to come and see you, or at least write a text message.

5. They like talking to you and they show interest

There are so many things that make us who we are – so many trivial things we want to talk about; so many boring situations that seemed stressful for us.

The person who is in just for the sex won’t bother to listen to these things, and they will definitely not talk about such things.

The person in love, on the other hand, will always listen attentively and may even want to try to help you fix some problems (at least in your head).

They enjoy talking to you about stuff, they are interested in what you want to say, and they will always show this.

6. They aren’t afraid to show commitment

Of course, if they are in love, they will never be afraid to talk about commitment and work toward achieving it. If someone is with you for the sex, they will be definitely afraid to think of commitment – they didn’t sign up for that, did they?

A person in love will be proud of the idea that they are committed to you and they won’t be afraid to eliminate all reserves that could replace you.

7. They want to be liked by your friends and family

And they will do everything to show them that they are worthy of being with you. As we all know, the loudest judges about your partners are your closest friends and family because they care about you.

If someone is with you for the sex, they won’t bother to even show up in front of your company, and if they do, they won’t try to communicate too much with them and won’t really care about their opinion about the relationship.

A person in love, though, will be on their best behavior and will show your closest that they are worthy of being around you and that they will never make you feel used or abandoned (at least not on purpose).

8. They are ready to do things they wouldn’t normally do

If you see your partner trying to dance with you with their clumsy feet because you love dancing, or they sing karaoke with you even if they are terrible at it – it’s because they are doing something they wouldn’t normally do.

That is definitely a sacrifice that not many would do, especially not someone who is in just for the sex. If you see your partner doing things that don’t go with their character, and they are doing them for you – it’s because they love you.

If you are with a person like this, keep them close to you and don’t let them go. You may have quarrels, misunderstandings, and tough periods, but you will be able to overcome those challenges because of the love you have for one another.

Stay away from toxic people and respect every breath made out of love. People who aren’t afraid to love will always find someone who will respect their love and love them back.

THE 4 WIVES (STORY OF THE YEAR)

There was a rich merchant who had 4 wives. He loved the 4th wife the most and adorned her with rich robes and treated her to delicacies. He took great care of her and gave her nothing but the best.

He also loved the 3rd wife very much. He’s very proud of her and always wanted to show off her to his friends.

However, the merchant is always in great fear that she might run away with some other men.

He too, loved his 2nd wife. She is a very considerate person, always patient and infect is the merchant’s confidante.

Whenever the merchant faced some problems, he always turned to his 2nd wife and she would always help him out and tide him through difficult times.

Now, the merchant’s 1st wife is a very loyal partner and has made great contributions in maintaining his wealth and business as well as taking care of the household.

However, the merchant did not love the first wife and although she loved him deeply, he hardly took notice of her.

One day, the merchant fell ill. Before long, he knew that he was going to die soon. He thought of his luxurious life and told himself, “Now I have 4 wives with me.

But when I die, I’ll be alone. How lonely I’ll be

Thus, he asked the 4th wife, “I loved you most, endowed you with the finest clothing and showered great care over you.

Now that I’m dying, will you follow me and keep me company?” “No way!” replied the 4th wife and she walked away without another word. The answer cut like a sharp knife right into the merchant’s heart.

The sad merchant then asked the 3rd wife, “I have loved you so much for all my life. Now that I’m dying, will you follow me and keep me company?” “No!” Replied the 3rd wife.

”Life is so good over here! I’m going to remarry when you die!” The merchant’s heart sank and turned cold.

He then asked the 2nd wife, “I always turned to you for help and you’ve always helped me out. Now I need your help again. When I die, will you follow me and keep me company?”

“I’m sorry, I can’t help you out this time!” replied the 2nd wife. “At the very most, I can only send you to your grave.” The answer came like a bolt of thunder and the merchant was devastated.

Then a voice called out: “I’ll leave with you. I’ll follow you no matter where you go.” The merchant looked up and there was his first wife. She was so skinny, almost like she suffered from malnutrition.

Greatly grieved, the merchant said, “I should have taken much better care of you while I could have!”

‘Every man and woman has four wives or husbands. What do these wives signify?’

*THE FOURTH WIFE

The 4th ‘wife’ is our body. We love our body day and night. In the morning, we wash our face, put on clothing and shoes. We give food to our body. We take care of our body like the fourth wife in this story.

But unfortunately, at the end of our life, the body, the first ‘wife’ cannot follow us to the next world. As it is stated in a commentary, ‘When the last breath leaves our body, the healthy color of the face is transformed, and we lose the appearance of radiant life.

Our loved ones may gather around and lament, but to no avail. When such an event occurs, the body is sent into an open field and cremated, leaving only the white ashes.’ This is the destination of our body.

*THE THIRD WIFE

Our 3rd wife? Our possessions, status and wealth. When we die, they all go to others.

*THE SECOND WiFE

The 2nd wife is our family and friends. No matter how close they had been there for us when we’re alive, the furthest they can stay by us is up to the grave.

*THE First Wife

The 1st wife is in fact our soul, often neglected in our pursuit of material, wealth and sensual pleasure.

Hunza People Never Get Sick, Don’t Get Cancer and Live up to 120 years – Here’s Their Secret

Have you ever heard about Hunza People?

There are many myths and stories about people who lived happy and healthy for a long, long time.

The myths like the one about  the  Holy Grail, or the Fountain of youth are still found quite interesting even after all these years.

But, it is no secret that there are many living people that live longer than the rest of us. There are even people that were never ever sick in their life.

So, what is the secret to a long and healthy life?

To answer that question, I went through the most amazing life stories of those centenarians who were willing to share their wisdom on the net.

To be honest, many of those stories were different and I was not able to make some final conclusion at first about the “secret” I was looking for. I found many different answers and they confused me even more.

For example, E.M from Italy lived 116 years, and she explained that the reason for her long life is staying single. She said: “I didn’t want to be dominated by anyone”, so after her divorce, at the age of 38 she spent the rest of her life single. She even won the battle against anemia by eating two raw eggs a day her whole life.

Another life story about Mushatt- Jones tells about eating fried bacon every single day. A California centenarian told his secret was eating one donut a day…

Then I found out about the life story of C.E, who was born and raised on a farm. She explains that her family and she ate only what they grew and caught. She is still physically active, working out every day together with her friends.

Then, I found out stories about centenarian twins and their secret of getting older together and close as the main reason for their long life…

Confused as I was, I continued searching for the “secret”. An article about the Hunza people took my attention for I began to realize that I am closer to my answer. Hunza people or Hunzas are a population in a mountainous valley in the region of Pakistan.

The many reasons these people took my attention are the following:

1. The literacy rate of Hunza valley is more than 95%- which means that every Hunza has at least a high school diploma;

2. The Hunza region is home to people of four ethnicities;

3. There are two different religion in the Hunza region and people are divided between them, but;

4. The lifestyle of Hunza people is very simple and they are considered to be very welcoming and warm;

5. Some Hunzas live up to 150 years;

6. The women in Hunza can give birth at the age of 65.

7. They never eat processed food, and they eat apricot often and a lot.

8. They work in the fields from sunrise to sunset every day and they work hard.

Connecting together the dots of all the stories and facts presented above, here is my conclusion about how to have a long and healthy life:

1. You do need to educate through life. You can start developing a healthy mind in the young age, and you should never stop reading and thinking actively. Clarice Emley was a teacher, almost all Hunzas are educated, so we can say, we need a healthy developed brain activity to have a healthy life.

2. Single or not it doesn’t matter as long as you maintain healthy relationships during your whole life. “Healthy relationship” can sometimes mean a good connection with yourself, knowing and acknowledging all those hidden feelings, and helping them dissolve in a healthy energy, no matter how contagious they can be.

Using self- learning techniques and meditation can help you develop a better understanding of your needs and wishes, which can lead to a bigger and wider loving atmosphere for yourself and everyone around you.

Don’t hesitate to express your feelings, for suppressing them can sometimes lead to an abyss. Expressing your feelings can make your relationships “grow old” with you in a healthy direction.

So don’t stay away from marriage, but be able to “jump out” of an unstable and unhealthy one. At the end, it is your life that matters most, and the lives of those you love.

3. Avoid stress! Yes, stress is the greatest silent killer, the modern “exterminator” of life force.

Nowadays it is hard to ignore those stressful situations like hard working days, paying rents etc. but if you somehow manage to survive these modern obligations and complications, you should retire and slow down in some peaceful place, where you can reconnect with nature and try to live a calmer life.

4. Try to eat organic, natural food, and if you have the chance, grow it yourself. Maybe this is something you hear every day or even think of it often, but look at the Hunza people -they eat only what they grow, and they are healthy to the stadium they don’t even know what cancer is.

They die old and happy, seeing more in life than anyone of us. Maybe they don’t know what pizza is, but they see the sunrise many years after your last sunset.

They get to witness their great-grandchildren running and playing around. So think about that next time you reach for a fast food snack!

5. Don’t skip the physical activity! Even though it is hard, don’t give up! Think of all the working hours on the fields that Hunza people spend a day! It is hard but keeping your muscles “warm” can never be a bad thing.

Clarice Emley (we mentioned before) exercises every day. And she is 105! So, if she won’t give up her working out for the program, why should you? You are never getting younger but you should try to get older!

Yes, getting older is hard. Sometimes we have to give up many things and change our lives direction, but we do it for ourselves.

Why not try these things; maybe they will help you after all? Maybe you will live longer than anyone in your family. Maybe you will be the first one that can live for 200 years. And then, you will tell us your secret.

But till then, let’s use the knowledge of all those people that are older than 100 and still happy and healthy.

Good luck, and have a long and healthy life!

Partners Who FART In Front Of Each Other Are More Likely To Have A Long Relationship

Do you find this shocking? Farting, the thing you try to avoid so frantically in front of other people particularly your partner, can actually be beneficial for your relationship.

You may wonder how that is plausible, and isn’t your partner going to be bothered by the very deed, but read on, and you might change your view.

Mamy people try to show the best of themselves in front of their partner in order to make them fall in love.

This doesn’t mean just avoiding letting one go in front of them, but also to do many other normal, everyday activities.

But, a lasting relationship is formed on sincerity and trust, and you can only accomplish that by being as natural as you can.

This is even confirmed by Leah Decesare in her book called Naked Parenting. She explains the secrets of parenting and maintaining a lasting relationship.

Leah Decesare on Farting in Front of Your Partner

The author describes the moment when she accidentally farted in front of her husband for the first time. In fact, he remembers this moment even though it was over 20 years ago.

Obviously, her husband’s first impression after hearing her fart was “I want to marry this woman.”

He felt closer than ever, and he knew he’d always be with her. He enjoyed the fact that she let him into a different personal space. The moment she crossed the Toot-Line, her husband felt free to fart in front of too.

A solid marriage should be built on honesty, acceptance, and truth. In other words, a cozy spot where you can be free and completely yourself to the tiniest detail. It’s unlike other relationships. Women are normally too shy to fart even in a public restroom because somebody may hear them.

They hold it and wait until alone to ultimately let it out. However, this should be different with your partner. Be free and natural in front of them and don’t be shy of passing gas. Of course, we don’t say you should do it in front of strangers, but only when you two are alone.

Leah reveals that farting in front of your partner creates empathy, making you closer and even more charming to them. It’s a test to see if you can be 100% you, in front of each other.

Farting is Healthy

What’s more, farting is a normal process just like laughter and tears. It’s even unhealthy to hold it in. Dr. Oz describes it can cause stomach pain, cramps, and even bloating. Plus, you shouldn’t hide or ignore that part of you even though you share the most private things with your partner.

The average person passes about half a liter of gas in a day. So, this amount of gas has to come out at some point.

A Part of the Marriage

That’s right. You vow to stick together in sickness and health and to share everything. This is thought to bring you closer and make you stronger. Be honest to make your marriage steady and lasting. Be natural and don’t abstain yourself from doing normal stuff in front of each other.

This way, you’ll build and keep a solid foundation. This includes farting in front of your partner. It’s just a sign of your close and intimate connection with them. What’s more, they can make you laugh together, and a couple who laughs when alone is eternally a happy couple.

Study Shows The More Time You Spend With Your Mom, The Longer She’ll Live

Has it been awhile since you’ve seen your mom? A 2012 study says you should invite her over for dinner soon.

The study concluded that loneliness is a significant factor in the decline of quality of life in older adults, including risk of depression, cognitive impairment and health problems like coronary artery disease, and may even lead to an earlier death.

Specifically, the study looked at 1,600 adults with an average age of 71. Researchers found that 23 percent of participants who reported being lonely died within six years of the study, while only 14 percent of those who reported having companionship died during the same six year period.

The results, which were published in the JAMA Internal Medicine, remained consistent even after controlling for health and socioeconomic status.

Another study published in the journal PLoS Medicine in 2010 found that social ties can be as important to extending life as losing weight if you are obese and getting active if you are sedentary.

“Our social relationships are important not only to our quality of life, but also our longevity,” said study author Julianne Holt-Lunstad, PhD, associate professor of psychology at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, to WebMD.

“Throughout human history, we have relied on others for survival such as protection and food, and despite modern advancements that may [help with] certain aspects of survival so that we can live more independently, it appears that our relationships nonetheless still impact odds of survival,” she says.

Research has shown that loneliness and social isolation is downright terrible for our health. In fact, it’s been called a bigger health risk than smoking or obesity.

Spending time with loved ones or friends often leads to laughter. Laughing is a powerful antidote to declining health, having been shown to boost immunity, lower blood pressure and stimulate both blood flow and mental activity.

So, what are you waiting for? Plan a visit to your mom, and by all means, bring a few good jokes along with you!

RESPECT YOUR PARENTS IN THEIR OLD AGE – HEART TOUCHING STORY

An 80 year old man was sitting on the sofa in his house along with his 45 years old highly educated son. Suddenly a crow perched on their window.

The Father asked his Son, “What is this?” The Son replied “It is a crow”. After a few minutes, the Father asked his Son the 2nd time, “What is this?” The Son said “Father, I have just now told you “It’s a crow”. After a little while, the old Father again asked his Son the 3rd time, What is this?”

At this time some expression of irritation was felt in the Son’s tone when he said to his Father with a rebuff. “It’s a crow, a crow”.A little after, the Father again asked his Son the 4th time, “What is this?”

This time the Son shouted at his Father, “Why do you keep asking me the same question again and again, although I have told you so many times ‘IT IS A CROW’. Are you not able to understand this?”

A little later the Father went to his room and came back with an old tattered diary, which he had maintained since his Son was born. On opening a page, he asked his Son to read that page. When the son read it, the following words were written in the diary :-

“Today my little son aged three was sitting with me on the sofa, when a crow was sitting on the window. My Son asked me 23 times what it was, and I replied to him all 23 times that it was a Crow. I hugged him lovingly each time he asked me the same question again and again for 23 times. I did not at all feel irritated I rather felt affection for my innocent child”.

While the little child asked him 23 times “What is this”, the Father had felt no irritation in replying to the same question all 23 times and when today the Father asked his Son the same question just 4 times, the Son felt irritated and annoyed.

So..

If your parents attain old age, do not repulse them or look at them as a burden, but speak to them a gracious word, be cool, obedient, humble and kind to them. Be considerate to your parents.From today say this aloud, “I want to see my parents happy forever. They have cared for me ever since I was a little child. They have always showered their selfless love on me.

They crossed all mountains and valleys without seeing the storm and heat to make me a person presentable in the society today”. Say a prayer to God, “I will serve my old parents in the BEST way. I will say all good and kind words to my dear parents, no matter how they behave.

Thanks for spending your time on reading this story……
