4 Cute Marvel-Inspired Pick-Up Lines For Her

Here are 4 cute Marvel-inspired pick up lines to try:

6. Are you the Hulk? Because I think you’re incredible.

Being likened to a big, muscly, green superhero can be a bit surprising. But when you think of it, the Incredible Hulk is exceptionally strong and is a reliable friend to the rest of the Avengers. Who else is green, big, adorable, and beloved by all? Shrek; but that's for another time.

7. Are you the latest Marvel movie? Because I honestly wanna spoil you.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is ever-growing, and new movies are being produced. Stan Lee would've been proud if you use his genius in finding love. Spoiler alert! You might have a pleasant ending to your love story, like Steve Rogers and the love of his life.

8. Wow, a profile like yours… honestly that’s one in 14,000,605.

This pickup line is unlike anything from the comic book. But someone who may have watched the Marvel Universe Infinity War or Endgame will get it. One of the good comebacks to try with this line is "I wish I have an infinity stone to stop time right now to admire you endlessly."

9. I think you and I are the 22nd film in the MCU… By that, I mean I think we’re Endgame.

Smooth and effective is what you could say about this line. Hopefully, your love story wouldn't be cut short like Tony Stark and Pepper's.

6 Dirty One Liners From Marvel Movies

Strict pickup lines don't exist because pickup lines are there for flirtation. If you want to bring your Tinder date or conversation somewhere more private, these spicy lines might just do the trick.

Here are 6 spicy one-liners from Marvel Movies:

This is a one-liner that even the Mighty Thor would use to send shivers to someone they're dating. Make sure to use your sultry, attractive voice when saying this one.

20. When they made me a super-soldier, all of my muscles got bigger.

Winter Soldier or Captain America, each one has their own taste in a guy. If you're feeling a bit courageous, you might want to add that another muscle gets bigger when you're around her.

This classic Spider-Man one-liner takes the cake for being one of the most direct things you can say to a girl you're with. So you'll need to sound confident for this one.

This is a playful take on the classic "Is that a sword in your pocket" pickup line. This works better if a girl says it, but hey, it's a good one.

23. Loki May have wanted world domination. But I only wanna dominate you.

Add a wink to incorporate Loki's playfulness and charm with your witty one-liner. Include a wicked smile, and you'll have her attention as quick as you can say "God of Mischief."

24. Can you be my Thanos? Because I’d like your Snap.

Mixing a bit of Marvel wit with modern social media networking can be hot, too. Hopefully, your streaks will be out of Snapchat as well.

Sigma Male vs. Alpha Male: How To Be A Powerful, Happy & Charming Man Wed, 28 Sep 2022 04:39:44 +0000 Sigma Male vs Alpha Male - Main

Sigma Male vs. Alpha Male. Who do you think is better?

I help guys develop a deeper self-awareness in dating and relationships. My writing is frequently highlighted on websites like Up Journey and Lifehack, and I've written many articles for Mantelligence.

Why do you need to know about male personality types, you ask? Well, to be a better version of yourself, you need to understand the male mindset. So, let's get started.


Sigma Male vs. Alpha Male - The Ultimate Comparison

There are many types of male personality. It's been around, and we've coexisted in a social hierarchy for most of human history. At the top of the dominance hierarchy are the alpha and sigma personality traits. That's right; it's not a beta that sits with the alphas. Here's an ultimate guide on the sigma man and alpha man.



Here are 3 similarities they share:

1. Both are confident and powerful and possess strong leadership qualities.

Young men with the sigma male personality or the personality type of alphas are great at social interaction as they possess high interpersonal social skills. They're confident when talking to a woman and generally have good social status.

2. They are powerful and protective of others.

It is a social norm for them to show a protective side. They'll stick up for their omega and beta male brothers and will come to the aid of a damsel in distress.

3. Both are attractive to women.

If there is a male personality type that women are attracted to, the alphas and sigmas win. There's something about the sigma male trait and the alpha personality that naturally oozes attractiveness, masculinity, and charm.

Here are 4 things that set them apart:

4. While alpha males tend to be outgoing and loud, sigma males are naturally introverts and loners.

As the epitome of a sigma male, John Wick takes the lead. They're a lone wolf compared to the alpha male archetype of enjoying being part of a crowd. Alphas are loud and like to take control of a room. Sigmas like to watch from the corners.

5. Alphas lead others using their dominating nature and physical prowess, while sigmas lead without exerting authority.

Both alphas and sigmas stand at the top of social dominance hierarchies, but sigmas lead by example rather than make commands or use an authoritative tone.

6. Alphas conform to the expectations of society, while sigmas do not.

Because alphas like being in a position with high levels of responsibility and are more likely to compete at being the best, they tend to be rule followers. Sigmas are not. They like to do their own thing and live by their own rules.

7. Alpha males are at the top of the social hierarchy, whereas sigma males stay outside the social hierarchy by choice.

Unlike the delta male, who is the backbone of society, the sigma male lifestyle has sigmas watching from the outskirt. In comparison, alphas like to be at the top of the social ladder or in a position of power.

Who is an Alpha Male?

An alpha male is a successful, self-assured, and highly educated man. Generally speaking, alpha guys make excellent leaders and desire to hold positions of authority. Being self-assured and at ease with oneself, exercising restraint, and remaining present-focused are characteristics of an alpha male mindset.


The males at the top of the social standing hierarchy are known as "Alpha" males. As a result of their physical dominance, they have easier access to resources like power, money, and partners. According to Theodore Robert Beale, who developed the socio-sexual hierarchy, the alphas are right on top.


Alpha males earn their respect by being confident no matter what. Alpha male characteristics that attract women include:

  • Being straightforward, honest, and dependable.
  • Having ambition and growth.
  • Showing compassion and consideration, like for their omega male and gamma male brothers.

Behavior in a Relationship

They constantly check on their mate to ensure everything is alright, and in an emergency or crisis, they take control and deal with the situation. Because the true alpha is physically powerful and emotionally tough, they will know when to give their mate space and when to provide a helping hand.

Famous Alpha Males

  • Clint Eastwood
  • Jason Momoa
  • George Clooney

Who is a Sigma Male?

sigma male is, in essence, an introverted alpha male. They naturally stay in command and are attractive without the loud and boisterous demeanor that an alpha male often possesses.


In masculinist subcultures, a popular, successful, and fiercely independent man is referred to as a "sigma male". A sigma guy is also sometimes referred to as a lone wolf.


The sigma male is shrouded in secrecy, contributing to his allure as a romantic prospect.

  • He's knowledgeable and independent, making it challenging for others to disregard him.
  • Doesn't follow the crowd and aren't seeking approval for whatever they accomplish.
  • Their nonchalant quality appeals to both males and females equally.

Behavior in a Relationship

A sigma male is incredibly romantic. However, they don't immediately reveal their romantic side. When they do choose to show this side of themselves, it means they're committed. They place high importance on long-term relationships and want to be sure they can build a future with who they're with.

Famous Men Who Happened to be Sigma Male Personality

  • Keanu Reeves
  • Tom Cruise
  • Han Solo

How To Deal with Alpha and Sigma Males - 5 Tips

Whether it's the alpha, the sigma male, or the beta male, knowing how to deal with some strong personalities is important to know.

Here are 5 tips for dealing with any male personality type: 

Tip #1: Be Yourself.

Don't pretend to be someone you're not to fit into a group. If you want to be liked by anyone, be yourself, but be yourself confidently.

Tip #2: Keep Communication Lines Open

Consider changing your communication style to mirror the other person's. For example, if you're trying to talk with an introverted individual, one-on-one rather than in a group is a better way to make them feel comfortable. If a person tends to be more outgoing, try to match their energy.

Tip #3: Understand what the differences are and avoid negative labeling

It's simple to become irritated and describe someone as "difficult" or "annoying" when we observe that they behave or communicate differently from how we do. Try to understand everyone is different. Some people seem loud and obnoxious but might be extremely kind and caring. Try to see the best in people.

Tip #4: Ask them questions

Conversations are an excellent place to start. Continue building rapport and deepening your conversation by asking questions. Show that you are interested in them.

Tip #5: Don't hide your vulnerability

Admitting vulnerability means we have to be more open, which helps to establish trust and connection. Engaging with your vulnerable side is essential since this is the only way to relate genuinely and truly accept each other.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you need some more information about sigma and alpha males in relationships? Here are a few frequently asked questions that can help you understand them better:

Can an alpha male become a sigma male or vice versa?

Yes, anyone can become whomever they want, provided they are dedicated to altering themselves. It is just a matter of control. An alpha male can become a sigma male if they control themselves from being boisterous and extroverted. To become an alpha male, a sigma male should be less worried about how others perceive them yet remain confident with their actions.

Do people dislike sigma males more than they do alpha males?

People dislike a sigma male more only because they stand out without even trying to. This is something that some people dislike because they might be struggling to create their own identity and place in society.

Can an alpha and sigma male work together?

An alpha male may struggle to work with a sigma male. He can't exist if someone else has a higher status than him, and the only way the alpha male can stop this is by trying to constantly outdo the sigma male.

Do alpha males always outshine a sigma male?

Not always, but public perceptions may think so only because a sigma male doesn't need to have his successes displayed, unlike alphas that like having their wins celebrated by everyone.

More Interesting Articles to Explore

To be the best version of yourself, you should always work towards improvement. These articles will help you understand some essential things every guy should know.

  1. Knowing how to become an alpha male is a great way to step up your social game. The mindset of an alpha can help you be more confident and boom in social settings.

22. Who is most likely to fall in love with the ex once again?

Who's got an ex they just can't stay away from? They may have broken up for good reasons, but if they start to date again soon after the fact, it may just be too hard for them to let go. It's okay as long as they stay friends even after breaking up.

Have you ever said something you didn't mean? Maybe it was a response to unrequited feelings, or other sources pressured them. Once you learn the answer, you'll learn more about what they were going through when it happened.

24. Who is most likely to prefer Netflix and chill with a crush rather than any other activity?

Netflix and chill is the most popular activity out there, next to communicating on social media. If you'd rather watch a movie than take them out on a date, they must be one of the most chill dudes/gals out there.

25. Who is most likely the worst in bed?

26. Who is most likely the biggest pervert?

Who's read the dirtiest magazines or, even worse, has a stash? It'll be hard to get them to confess, so you've only got your personal knowledge of your friends to help you figure out who's got it bad.

27. Who is most likely to dance at a strip club?

Let alone be in it; who's likely to dance in one? This doesn't single out the ladies, either. Guys can get in on the action too. Better have good dance moves then because they're putting on a show.

28. Who is most likely to have a friend with benefits?

Or plural "friends." There's just this good friend of yours with whom you have decidedly more intimate acts than what would be expected of friends. So, who's got one, or even more than one?

29. Who is most likely to have the most sexual partners?

Who really, really gets around the most? This one's fun to ask because if everyone's in on telling the others about their escapades, it can be a seriously stacked competition to find out who's most likely.

Have you ever found someone you just met and just... sucked face with them? Even if none of you have ever done this, the bravest of you might answer that they're the most likely.

I've assembled a pretty good list of paranoia questions for you to use in your paranoia questions game. You've got the material for it, but you must be wondering how to put it into practice. So, here are some helpful tips on how to start up your paranoia questions game.

Here's how to play paranoia questions game:

1. Prepare your questions ahead of time.

If you've read through this list, you're already quite prepared for it. It's possible to wing it and ask any random question in mind, but you won't get the most interesting answers unless you've prepared a good question beforehand. So, take a small list of questions, commit them to memory, and use them to discover your friends' deepest secrets.

2. Gather the right group of people.

The game is about finding out more about the people who play, so choosing who to invite is an important step. If you're already close friends with most of them, there will be less to discover - so choose a group of friends whom you know just the bare minimum about. Everyone will come out of it understanding everyone deeper.

3. Take turns asking the questions.

For the most fun, it shouldn't just be one person asking a list of questions they've prepared. Everyone should get in on the fun and ask their own paranoia questions. It can be fun seeing what sort of funny, deep, or dirty question they come up with - and seeing who's the lucky (or unlucky) guy or gal that's the most likely.

Tips To Make Your Paranoia Questions Game Fun

By now, you're ready to start playing paranoia games with your friends and get to know them well over a round of play. But did you know that you can make it even more fun? I've assembled a few tips on making even the most ordinary game of paranoia fun. So, if you're interested, read on!

Here are 4 tips on making your paranoia game more fun:

Tip #1: Go for interesting, rarely asked questions.

Common questions will be thrown in now and then, but for the best experience, go for questions people rarely ask. Ask things like, "Who's the most likely to invite strangers to their birthday party?" among other things. Uncommon questions like that can reveal surprising truths about the person they most resemble, so you'll want to include as many as possible.

Tip #2: Be as specific as possible.

Even the common questions can be made more interesting if you make them more specific. Whether having a particular target in mind or having as many details as possible, making a question more specific can change the answer compared to just asking it in broader terms. To use an example from the questions above, instead of "Who is most likely the biggest pervert?" try asking, "Who has the most perverted fetishes?" It can greatly change the answer.

Tip #3: Vary your topics.

Don't settle for just a general theme to your paranoia questions. The best games have a variety of topics that make for a more fun experience. Some questions can be funny, some can be random, and some can be dirty - use plenty of different questions to keep your friends on your toes.

Tip #4: Follow up on others' questions.

If a topic a friend of yours uses garners visible interest in your friends, then use up a turn of yours to follow up on that topic. Sometimes, they've just struck gold, and there needs to be more to the story - so if you sense a question triggers a good reaction in your friends, ask another question that will reveal more about that topic. You can then move on once everyone's satisfied, which they will be.

Frequently Asked Questions

I've already revealed plenty about the science of paranoia questions games, but did you want to know more? Here are some frequently asked questions that I've answered about these types of games, and hopefully, they'll help you understand more about how to make the games more fun or why they are, to begin with.

Who should ask paranoia questions?

Anyone can ask paranoia questions in the game, but it's on the one who suggests playing it to come up with his own list of things he wants to ask. Once he gets the ball rolling, everyone can pitch in - but first, he's got to capture everyone's interest by coming up with some interesting or unique questions. Once it gets started, it becomes hard to stop!

Who can play the paranoia questions game?

Friends, friends of friends, or acquaintances are some of the best picks for paranoia questions games. They're people you'd like to get to know better, and what better way to learn more about multiple people all at once than to play a paranoia game? Choose people you know little about and would like to know more about - while close friends can play, there's probably little you didn't already know about them.

How many people can play the paranoia questions game?

Three people are the least you can start a paranoia game with because if you play a game with only two people, there are only two choices as to what they resemble. You can just also ask them outright rather than playing a game with them. With three people, it becomes ambiguous who resembles the question asked the most - and the more people there are, the more exciting the game becomes. So, when hosting a paranoia game, try to settle for a number more than three.

Why should I play the paranoia game instead of the other questions game?

The paranoia game is designed to reveal the most fitting person who fulfills the answer to the question. You can play other question games, ask the same question, and generally get an answer - but you won't find out who the most fitting person is in a given scenario. So, if you want to find out who the most fitting person is for a given question, and not just who can fit the question anyway, then the paranoia game is the best way to find that out.

Importance Of Cover Letter: Know These 8 Useful Rules To Get Hired Wed, 21 Sep 2022 03:29:46 +0000 a man typing on a laptop - Importance of Cover Letter

Considering the importance of cover letter can make it daunting to start drafting one, especially if it's for an opportunity you want to take up.

I've talked about career aspects like dealing with a toxic boss or 2-week notice letter templates and I've been published on sites like Her Campus and UpJourney, so you can trust me to tackle the importance of cover letter for a job application. With it, you can get your dream career without stressing about the results.

Let's start!


What is a Cover Letter?

A cover letter is a document attached to your resume that gives hiring teams more personalized insight into your work experience. It details how your past work applies to the role you are currently applying for and what value you add to the position. When requested, the cover letter is an employer's first impression of you as an individual, making it important to highlight applicable skills and abilities based on the job description.

Usually, employers will read the cover letter before moving to look at your CV or resume. So, if and when a cover letter is requested, it is essential to ensure it is properly written to meet the job requirements. Otherwise, employers going through handfuls of applications may not even take a look at your resume if they deem your cover letter inadequate. If you've ever asked 'what is the importance of a cover letter?' it may sound overwhelming at first.

Is a Cover Letter Necessary in 2022?

When applying for a job, you are usually asked to submit an updated resume and a cover letter. However, you might question whether cover letters are still a thing these days. The answer is that it depends. Employers often require a cover letter in the job application form under the requirements.

Some employers require applicants to submit a cover letter together with their resume. A study by CareerBuilder reveals that almost half of HR managers think cover letters are a great way to boost your resume. Recruiters also read cover letters to help them decide whether to hire the applicant or move on to the next candidate.

You can also include a cover letter even if it is not required. It will make a powerful impression that you are serious about getting the job. Cover letters should tell employers that you are there to offer solutions because you need a job. But if the employer explicitly mentions you should not submit a cover letter, you don't need to submit one.

How to Write a Cover Letter

You should include a cover letter in your application if the potential employer or hiring manager requires it or when someone refers you for the job. The importance of cover letter inclusions in your application also allows you to showcase how your skills and job experiences directly match what they are looking for in the role you've applied for. While writing a cover letter may seem daunting, we'll go through some aspects here.

Here are 7 aspects to keep in mind when thinking about how to write your cover letter.

1. Address a specific person.

Cover letters are usually addressed to the business owner or the HR manager. The main difference between a cover letter and a resume is to ensure that you can show firsthand your skills and experience to what your prospective employer requires. As a job seeker, it is in your best interest to ensure that you highlight what the recruiter is looking for in the job description.

2. Make sure that your cover letter fits on one page.

As the name suggests, an effective cover letter should always strive to be as concise as possible in as little as one page. This letter will directly adhere to your communication skill and writing qualification. Additional resources and excess information should remain limited at all times. Too much bloat will harm your standing compared to the other candidates applying.

3. Use formal block paragraphs with spaces in between lines and paragraphs.

A cover letter requires the application to be as professional and consistent as possible. Your information may not have the same results as others, but there is a formal approach and format to how you space and formulate your letter. Keeping a watchful eye on your block paragraphs and spacing will help differentiate your letter from other potential competition you may have.

4. The opening paragraph contains what position you are applying for.

The first paragraphs in the cover letter usually address your strong intention to apply for the position. Always ensure that your cover letter directly pertains to the specific situation your job requirement entails. Avoid adding unnecessary fluff not part of the relevant experience for your position.

Your opening paragraph should express what job position you are applying for and your intent for HR to consider your application.

5. The second paragraph explains why you should be considered for the position.

The subsequent sections should justify why you are fit for the job position. This second paragraph should include relevant work experience and skills you can bring to the table. Avoid telling them you are the "best person for the job" or any other large vague claims because the hiring manager will ultimately decide.

6. End politely in the third paragraph and express interest in hearing from them soon.

A great cover letter should address the hr manager directly with a polite and professional note acknowledging and thanking the manager for the opportunity to have them read your cover letter. Adding phrases like dear hiring manager can turn your letter into a strong cover letter as it showcases that you can be a good fit in their work structure.

7. Be careful of typos and grammatical mistakes.

Your cover letter will not only gauge your accomplishments and records, but it can also determine your ability to scout grammatical errors as a writer. It would be best to showcase your writing ability since it can determine your position in a formal environment. Larger corporations will place more emphasis on your grammar and writing than others.

Example of a Good Cover Letter

If you are still unsure about the specifics of writing the perfect cover letter, here is an example:

Dear (Insert HR Manager),I admire the work that (insert company name) has done. As someone with prior experience in the industry, I am enthusiastic about applying for the role of (insert job title here). (Insert company name) has made great strides in advancing the industry towards a more progressive work environment.

With that, my goal of working closely with a well-respected company sharing a similar vision enhances my capabilities in contributing to the industry in an impactful way. Applying the skills and knowledge I have gathered from (insert applicable work or role), in which (describe positive results of work here).

I am confident that my expertise will find a valuable place in (insert company name). I remain passionate and goal-oriented in the work I do and strive to expand my capabilities to make the most of the opportunity presented to me in applying for (insert position).

I welcome the chance to discuss my application further, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Creating a strong cover letter requires some understanding of the complex processes of keeping each formal paragraph block as consistent as possible. You also need to ensure that the letter contains enough information about yourself and how you can qualify as a potential candidate for the job position you are targeting.

Will a cover letter increase my chances of getting hired?

The answer depends on the company that you are trying to apply for. Not every HR will require potential candidates to submit a cover letter for hire. However, it is widely believed that sending a well-made cover letter alongside your resume can help boost the chances of being selected for an interview or even getting hired.

Should I bring a copy of my cover letter to the interview?

Your letter will help showcase to your interviewer your strong desire and intent to be considered a great candidate for the specific job. Some of the interview questions you may receive from the HR manager can use your cover letter as proof that showcases your ability to handle particular tasks they may require.

Can I memorize my cover letter and use it as answers to the interview questions?

Of course, your cover letter houses some of your greatest accomplishments and feats that put you ahead of the competition. Memorizing parts of your letter allows you to seem confident and proud of the achievements you have acquired throughout your tenure and would even earn praise from your HR manager.

Do hiring managers prefer simple or elaborate cover letters?

The main importance of a cover letter is that each paragraph block properly adheres to the traditional standard needed. Although making a cover letter look and sound more elaborate can help it stand out from others, you still have to ensure that the words written in the letter contain all the necessary information pertaining to the job requirement at hand.

20 Short Beard Styles - Be The Best Looking Man Out There! Tue, 20 Sep 2022 04:36:13 +0000 Short Beard Styles - Smiling guy with a black reading eyeglasses wearing a white hoody

Are you searching for the best short beard styles out there? This list will surely help you out.

I've been featured on Dapper Confidential and Wise Bread because I'm an expert on how to instantly have a more attractive face. It's because I'm an expert on how to attract women using easy and simple grooming tips. This style guide will help you keep yourself looking clean and dapper.

Let's get your beard on!


10 Best Styles You Could Try For Your Short Beard The Next Time You Shave

If you can't rock a full beard or think it's too much work growing out and maintaining your facial hair, then it's time for you to try a short beard style. They look fantastic, and they're easy to maintain. And that's not all... they're perfect for the summer heat and are office-friendly. Check them out.

Here are the 10 best short beard styles for your beard:

1. Van Dyke Beard

This style is named after a 17th-century Flemish painter. Johnny Depp is a big fan of this facial hair style.

Many women like this kind of style. It makes men appealing to women who are attracted to bad boys with an edge.

2. Goatee

The goatee beard style has become incredibly popular in recent years. A goatee is a style that has facial hair on the chin and not the cheeks. The name comes from the unusual hair growing on a billy goat's chin.

3. Short Boxed Beard

This style is meticulously groomed and cropped alternative to the full beard. It features thick yet trimmed beard hair above your upper lip, cheeks, and chin. This is also one of the beard styles that accentuates your cheekbones.

If you want to achieve a more chiseled face, you'll like this one of the mustache styles.

4. The Balbo

This one is named after Italo Balbo, an Italian commander and aviator. The Balbo beard looks closely similar to the short boxed beard. It is a beard style that has no sideburns and a floating mustache.

It's not exactly one of the best beard styles if you're trying to grow it out for the first time. It may look better on you if you've tried the other short beard styles before.

5. Chin Strap Beard

This is a very popular beard style due to its versatility. It's unique because there's no mustache, yet a clearly defined edge is around the jawline.

It's best for those men with oval-shaped faces or those with a strong jawline. This beard style helps to emphasize those particular features.

6. Chevron

The Chevron beard style is a deceptively tricky style to pull off. It is the trademark of hunky actor Tem Selleck, which has also influenced many other male celebrities to try it out. It's a big chunk of hair that sits on your top lip and follows the shape of the lip, which tends to turn down at the edges.

This style isn't for those who are into a patchy beard. It only works when it can 100% cover your upper lip area.

7. Pencil Mustache

This is a classic style that oozes old-school Hollywood glamour. Since it is only a single line above your upper lip, it doesn't need to be that bushy or thick.

Use a beard trimmer to really define a pencil-thin mustache on top of your mouth. Make sure to go slowly and not trim too much off when trying to even out the edges.

8. Short stubble

It is arguably one of the most simple beard styles. Men with thinning or short hair usually go for this style and maintain it this way because they can't grow too much facial hair. To achieve this, even out the beard across your face by combing against the hair growth and using your trusty beard trimmer.

9. Beardstache

This is a cool-looking way to wear your facial fur, and it is one of the best beard styles that can make you stand out from the crowd. It combines all the most distinctive features of the beard and mustache.

Let both parts grow out but trim only the beard area to get this look. It will accentuate the remaining thick upper lip hair, giving you a unique look.

10. Anchor

Wanna pull off the Tony Stark look? Robert Downey Jr. did the anchor beard style a lot of good when he sported this in the Iron Man movies, making it the latest beard style. It is perfect for men with oblong or square-shaped faces.

Also, it signifies that you're a daring man who enjoys making himself look good by maintaining this type of facial hair.

10 Recommended Ways to Style Short Beards Of Bald Men

Bald with a beard is stylish. Women will go gaga when they see you. You'll look smart and distinct if you understand how to grow and style your beard. Most men who are thinning at the top tend to go for the classic trimmed-down shorter length.

Today, we have a collection of beard styles for hairless men that will give you plenty of sexy, manly, and elegant looks to choose from. Let's dive in.

Here are 10 recommended beard styles for hairless men:

11. 3-Day Stubble Beard

The French call it “la barbe de trois jours." It simply entails having facial hair that looks like it grew out 3 days after a fresh shave. It is also known as the "designed stubble" or the "five o'clock shadow." This style makes you look like a rugged man without needing a full beard.

12. Circle Beard

This is a chin strap and a mustache meeting to form a circle. And if we're talking about beard styles for shaven head men, this is definitely one of the most popular. Try googling Dwayne Johnson or John Travolta with circle beards.

A couple of good-looking men, am I right? This kind of beard style pulls focus from the bald head and makes you look like you still pay attention to your grooming habits.

13. Mustache Only

The mustache-only style slips in and out of fashion. However fleeting, it's a classic style that most men like when they want to look a little different than usual. It's very simple, too. Just keep the upper lip full and thick, and remove your chin, neck & cheek hairs as well.

14. Mutton Chops

This style goes back centuries. If you've ever thought of growing your sideburn hair, this is exactly what it will look like. This style entails growing out those sideburns and letting them go all the way to your cheek area.

Hugh Jackman as Wolverine had the most impact on making this a beard style men considered to have.

15. Chin Curtain

Hair grows along the jaw line and covers the chin completely. This beard style makes bald men more confident because it shows their ability to grow thick facial hair still. Make sure to keep it clean using your beard brush or beard comb and facial wash because that much hair on your chin can be prone to bacteria and skin issues.

16. Soul patch beard style

It is basically a cluster of hair under your chin. It adds a little something to your basic goatee. If you want to achieve this style, make sure to shave the hair under the soul patch and avoid shaving the chin area.

You should have some space between the patch and chin hair to create that distinct look. Use a beard comb to separate the hair from the chin and patch easily.

17. Thick Goatee with Stubble

This is a fantastic combination of a goatee and a stubble beard. To achieve this beard style, ensure you don't shave too much off so you can still have that natural stubble effect on your chin and cheeks.

18. Circle Beard With Chin Strap

This is perfect if you're looking for something more experimental. It's basically the circle beard with a thin chin strap of beard hair that goes up to your jaw. It frames your face perfectly.

This is the style for you if you want to accentuate your jawline.

19. Short Full Beard

This is great for guys that can grow a relatively even beard all over. This is a great style for a tapered beard too. Although, I would advise you to get this done by a professional barber so he can really capture the gradient effect a tapered beard gives you.

20. French Beard

This is originally referred to as the Van Dyke beard. This french beard style makes you look serious and mysterious. If you're a bald man and you want to add a level of seriousness to your aura, this is the beard style you should have.

How To Pick The Beard Style That Will Suit Your Face Shape

Beards are now a firm part of men's facial furniture. In fact, the emphasis is on "how" and not "if" you should wear a beard. Just like a hairstyle, not every beard style will work for you.

Today, we'll help you brush up on your beard knowledge, so you don't pick an unflattering style.

Ready? Fire up your trimmer and sculpt your way to a beard style that works for you.

Here's how to pick the beard style that will suit your face shape:

1. Short Beard for an Oval Face

Have an oval-shaped face? Try not to look smug as you read on.

The oval-shaped face works with nearly all types of facial hair. Your look is well balanced, and you have no dominant features that you need to accentuate or hide.

All you need to do is focus on keeping your beard well-kempt.

2. Short Beard Styles for Rectangle Face

A rectangular face allows you to throw caution to the wind to an extent. You need to be careful not to make your face appear longer than it already is. Go for a bread style that gives your face some width.

Growing some facial hair higher up your cheeks will give you the much-needed width. A circle beard, chin curtain, and goatee combined with a mustache is the ideal beard style for rectangle-faced guys.

3. Short Beard Styles for Triangular Face

A triangular face features a prominent chin and a wide jawline. The goal here is to take the attention away from your chin. You can achieve this by going for a "beardstache," a mustache, and a short beard or stubble.

The hair on your cheeks is a big no. Go with Balbo and goatee beard styles.

4. Short Beard for Round Face

If you have a round face, you want to focus on having a triangular-shaped style. You want your beard to be shorter on your cheeks and longer on your chin.

A goatee with some stubble on the cheeks would be perfect. You could also go with the chin strap.

5. Short Bread for Heart Face

The dude with a heart-shaped face has a forehead larger than the jawline and cheekbones, along with a pointed chin. If this is you, you want to create the impression of a much fuller, square jawline.

A goatee with some stubble on the sides will give you a rough and ready look without overwhelming your natural bone structure. You can also throw a mustache into the mix.

6. Short Beard for Square Face

Every guy wishes they had a strong, square jaw, but it has its limits. You can't extend a five o'clock shadow into something more serious. The goal is to tone down the jawline without getting rid of your angular lines.

The right beard adds some length to the bottom and maintains a low profile on the sides. The chinstrap or goatee and mustache can work well for this shape.

7. Short Bread for Diamond Face

With a diamond face, the cheekbones are the widest part of your face. You have a narrow jawline and forehead that are symmetrical. The goal here is to make the hair on the chin offset your cheekbones.

You want to create the impression of a square chin to have a more balanced bone structure. The chin strap, mustache, Balbo, and goatee styles work well for the guy with a diamond-shaped face.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you still have some more clarifications about short beard styles and how to rock them effortlessly? These frequently asked questions should definitely help you out.

Do girls prefer men with facial hair or clean shaven?

When you do a quick Google search, you will find that women's preferences are cut right down in the middle. Half like men with facial hair and half like clean-shaven men. However, it really depends on your look and the personality you want to show.

It's best to try and grow it out so you can see your immediate family and friends' reactions. You will get a sense of what style you're more comfortable with and which fits you the best.

What is the difference between a beard and a moustache?

The beard is hair that grows on your chin, neck, and cheeks. The mustache is the hair that grows on your upper lip. Both have equal parts in making you look like a rugged man.

You can go back to our list above and see which styles you can choose if you just want to highlight either your beard or mustache.

Will having facial hair make me look more matured and manly?

Most of the time, it does. Men with facial hair often maintain their beards or mustaches because they want to achieve a certain look. Some women prefer their men to have prominent facial hair because it makes them look older and wiser.

That's another reason men like having facial hair.

How often do I need to shave?

If you're rocking any of the styles we wrote above, then you should shave as soon as you see the style doesn't quite look like it did when you first shaved. Hair growth differs for each man, but the standard shaving habit should be every 2-3 days.

Pro-tip: apply some beard oil for an extra layer of moisture underneath your beard.

You can also use beard balm after you clean your beard in the morning to act as a base for styling.

More Awesome Haircuts And Styles For Men

Growing out your head or facial hair is one of the easiest ways to switch up your style. You don't have to spend money, and you can alter your look far more drastically than a new pair of shoes or pants ever could. Here's the thing, guys... we're not all blessed with the genetics to make a full beard or head of hair an option.

Even worse, some of us have to deal with the grooming policy of the workplace.

Thankfully, styling your hair is not a one-size-fits-all affair. You can pull off a smart, neat look with any hair length. There's a style for everyone and every type of hair, and you can style it to mitigate even the patchiest of growth.

It's only a matter of settling on a style that works for you. Check out these awesome haircuts and styles for men.

How to Start a Conversation With Your Crush - 8 Helpful Ways Tue, 20 Sep 2022 04:11:46 +0000 How To Start A Conversation With Your Crush - Man and Woman talking while holding their bikes

In this article, I'll teach you how to start a conversation with your crush.

As a dating expert published on sites like Her Norm and UpJourney, I get it. Breaking the ice and starting a meaningful conversation with the person you like can get overwhelming, which is why I've written many articles helping men how to ask a girl for a date, from romantic pick-up lines to how to text your crush.

If you're wondering how to ask a girl to go out for a date, this article teaches you how to start a conversation with your crush and more.


Ultimate Guide on How To Start a Conversation With Your Crush Without Being Awkward

Knowing how to start a conversation is an important thing not just in dating but also in your everyday social life. I mean, how do you expect to get flirty with your crush if you just keep making eye contact? In this ultimate guide, I'm teaching you how to make a great conversation beyond small talk.

Here are 8 ways to start talking to your crush without being awkward:

Step #1: Introduce yourself to her

Whether it's through social media, a text message, or real life, the first step to learning how to talk to your crush is to introduce yourself. Start with a simple "hi" or "hello," then follow through by letting her know where you met or saw him.

Say your crush's name is Kat, and you met her through a mutual friend. A good introduction would sound like, "Hey, Kat. My name is Matt. We haven't been officially introduced, but you were at Robert's party last weekend, and I would love to get to know you."

If you're introducing yourself through social media or a text message, that should be enough. All you have to do now is to wait for her reply patiently. If you're doing it in real life, be sure to display open body language, act confident, maintain eye contact, and flash a charming smile.

Step #2: Start with a question

Now that you're done with the meet-cute part, the next step is to ask her a question, and you might want to prepare 3 to 5 questions or conversation starters for this part. The purpose of asking a question is to establish a connection and build trust through self-disclosure. You see, self-disclosure or the act of sharing something about yourself has been proven to accelerate and strengthen attraction between two people.

When you're done introducing yourself, you can follow through with a "how are you?" or ask her a relevant question such as, "so how long have you known Robert?". That's always a good conversation starter.

You can even turn to her social media to get an idea of a good question to ask. Maybe she once lived in New York. I'm sure she'd love to tell you about her stay there. A good follow-up question could be, "So what's the craziest thing that has ever happened to you while in New York" or "what's your favorite thing to do there?"

Whatever your question is, make sure that it will let her talk about herself. And make sure to relate to her answers and share something about yourself too.

Step #3: Smile and make a good eye contact

Again, if you're meeting her in real life, it's always a good idea to show open body language, a confident smile, and great eye contact. If you're jittery about meeting her and talking to her, you might want to practice a few times in front of the mirror or with an experienced friend so you can get insights on what's working and what's not with how you're presenting yourself.

Step #4: Find common ground to start your conversation

Don't know how to keep a conversation going with a girl?

Beyond flirty texts and interesting topics, finding common ground or common interest is an important thing when talking to your crush. This should keep your conversation going and help strengthen your bond. Perhaps you both watch the same TV show or enjoy the same hobby. Maybe you're both coffee connoisseurs or love discovering new foods.

Step #5: Show genuine interest

Sometimes, people tend to get carried away and focus too much on impressing the person they like that they forget to listen to what they have to say. If you want a meaningful conversation with the girl you like, the rule of thumb is to listen to understand, not respond.

That means that instead of thinking about what you want to say while the other person is talking, really listen to them.

Step #6: Be confident

Nothing is more attractive than a confident man, so when you've finally summed up the courage to talk to your crush, make sure you're not sweating or shaking doing it.

It's also important to display confident body language. When talking to your crush, keep your chin and head up. One easy way to practice is to pretend that there's a string holding the crown of your head up.

A good posture also goes a long way. Standing up straight makes you look confident, powerful, and poised.

It's also important to keep your hands out of your pockets so they're always visible and to plant your feet in an open, wide stance. Hiding your hands in your pocket sends a message that you're uncomfortable, and standing with your feet too close together can make you appear less confident.

Step #7: Make her feel comfortable talking with you

There are many ways to make a girl feel comfortable talking to you.

One way is to compliment her on things she's chosen, such as her dress or how she wears her hair. Avoid compliments that are objectifying, such as comments about her body.

Another way to make her feel comfortable is to respect her boundaries. Make sure you're not taking too much of her personal space by sitting too close or being too touchy.

Lastly, you can use humor to ease the tension between you two. If you can make her laugh, you're halfway there.

Step #8: Invite her to something casually

When all is said and done, the last thing you need to do is to invite her out on a date. It doesn't have to be a major date. It can be a casual date over coffee or an afternoon walk in the park. A good invitation would sound like, "Hey. There's a nice café I'd love to go to, and I was wondering if you could come with me."

The most important thing to remember is not to make it sound like she doesn't have a choice or is being pressured to go out with you. That can turn off any girl quickly.

Things To Consider Before Approaching a Girl You Like

You are more likely to get a date if you can avoid doing these unattractive things guys don't know they do.

Here are 4 important factors you need to consider before approaching a girl you like:

Consideration #1: Look for Go Signals

Before you worry about coming up with interesting conversation topics, you must know there is a right and wrong time to approach a girl. You are more likely to win a date and not get ignored when you know how to time your approach correctly.

One green flag is if your noticed her sitting or standing while looking relaxed. If she's in a positive mood and displays open body language, she is more likely to engage in a conversation with you.

If you notice her sending several glances or smiles along your way, that's another green flag. If that's the case, she's probably already interested in you and just waiting for you to approach her.

However, if a girl looks upset or preoccupied, it's best not to approach her. If she's having a bad day or caught up with something, she will not respond positively to getting hit on by a stranger.

Consideration #2: Find Out If She's Single

If you don't want to humiliate yourself and get rejected, do some research and find out whether or not the girl you like is single. Obviously, you're more likely to get a date if she's not already committed to someone else. Besides, you don't want to ruin your dating profile by dating an already committed woman. You can consult your mutual friend or turn to her social media for some references.

Consideration #3: Check Yourself

I only added this to the list because some men don't know how to manage their expectations and tend to get all riled up when a girl rejects them.

Dating is a trial and error kind of thing. Just the simple act of approaching a girl you like doesn't guarantee positive results, which is why you need to check yourself.

Ask yourself, are you prepared for any outcome- good or bad? What's the right way to respond when a girl rejects you? Am I emotionally ready to talk to my crush? Gentlemen, "manners maketh man", and how you handle rejection will say a lot about you.

Consideration #4: Know How to Physically Approach Her

Again, establishing trust is important when approaching a girl you just met. Knowing the best way to approach her physically will go a long way.

Generally, women are more protective of their personal spaces when meeting someone for the first time. Their guard is also higher when surrounded by strangers, so approaching a woman from behind or the front is not a good idea. For them, this feels apprehensive and intimidating.

What you can do instead is to slowly approach a girl from the side angle. Doing so lets her see you coming her way and allows her to prepare herself for your presence.

10 Pick-up Lines To Say To Your Crush For The First Time (Effectively Get Their Attention)

If you're looking for romantic things to say to a girl you like, these creative pick-up lines will make her laugh and ease the crazy tension of a potentially awkward meet-cute scenario:

Here are 10 pick-up lines to say to your crush for the first time:

1. I'm writing an article about the wonders of the world, and I'd like to interview you.

Of course, she's one of the wonders of the world. Or should I say, your world? I mean, you can't even figure out how to talk to her. Just kidding! But seriously, this pick-up line is one way to flatter her.

2. If you were a steak, you'd be rare AND well done.

There is no greater compliment than being told you're one of a kind and perfect in every way. This is a great pick-up line to use during a romantic dinner date.

3. Do you have a map? I just looked at you and forgot where I was.

Only a girl so stunning will make you forget where you were. This is a great pick-up line to use if you're approaching a girl who's a complete stranger.

4. Hi, I was about to get a coffee/tea, and something tells me you'd like one, too.

This is the more laid-back equivalent of "Can I buy you a drink?" when meeting a girl in the bar. If you happen to meet a beautiful woman during the day in one of your favorite coffee shops, this pick-up line might just get you a date or her phone number.

5. My fortune cookie told me to be more direct. And I'd love to have dinner with you.

We have all taken advice from a fortune cookie, so you might as well try your luck by making up something that a fortune cookie told you to do. Just try to appear friendly and less creepy.

6. Seeing you just reminded me to make this day count. Can I buy you a drink?

Seize the day, am I right? And what better way to carpe diem your dating life than offering a girl a drink or two? Talking to your crush is so much better with booze. Just make sure you can handle your liquor.

7. Your Wi-Fi signals are really strong. I've never felt so connected to anyone before.

This pick-up line might work better once you're done introducing yourself and after a few batches of questions. This is even perfect if you actually share a lot of common interests.

8. So other than being my walking-talking mood booster, what do you do?

This is a great segue before you actually ask her about her hobbies and what's keeping her busy. It's cute and doesn't sound like a pick-up line because of the question in the end.

9. Do you have an extra parachute? 'Coz I'm falling for you

Another great way to flatter your date. Although, you might want to reserve this for your fourth or fifth date. You don't want to scare a girl away by confessing your love too early.

10. I hope you're planning to stay. I don't want you to fly back to heaven without me.

Again, you don't want to sound too clingy too soon, so you might want to reserve using this pick-up line on later dates.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some more frequently asked questions to give you extra pointers when talking to your crush.

What are some topics to talk about with your crush to keep the conversation going?

People love talking about themselves so just ask her about anything that would allow her to talk about herself. If she posts a lot of pictures of her travels, you can ask her about her favorite destination. Bringing up her hobbies and interests is also one way to keep her talking.

Is it okay to ask your crush for a date even if you haven't talked to her personally?

I would not recommend inviting your crush to a date when you haven't talked to her personally yet. You are more likely to get a date with her when she's already comfortable around you, which is why establishing trust and connection is important.

What are the best gifts for my crush on our first day?

Giving her flowers is always the safest and sweetest act of gesture when meeting a girl for the first time. Giving her an expensive gift may look too clingy or put a lot of pressure on her.

How can I talk to my crush if she seems to be an introvert?

If your crush is an introvert, you might want to extend your patience. If she's not naturally comfortable meeting people face to face, sending her a text message should be enough. She might take a while to reply, but if she likes you, she will.

Why Are Riddles Good For The Brain? 3 Benefits

Riddles are great for training your brain, sharpening your critical thinking, and honing your mastery of wordplay. But, do you know why they're so good for you? I've listed a few major benefits of asking and answering riddles here, but be reminded that they're good for so many things it's hard to list them all.

Here are 3 reasons why riddles are good for the brain:

1. They broaden your perspective.

The thing about riddles is that they're very rarely literal. Riddles trick you with word puzzles and vague descriptions, forcing you into thinking with a broad mindset to try and answer them correctly. Even the riddles with simpler answers out there force you to follow a long train of thought to arrive at their answers. So, riddles are good for opening your mind to all possibilities.

2. They make you think outside the box.

Challenging riddles have answers that, while sometimes obvious, aren't obvious to people who take the riddle at face value. Often, the obviousness of the answer is only noticeable when you think differently from how you usually would. To arrive at the peculiar logic the riddle follows, you'll have to think outside the box to reach the proper conclusion.

3. They make you pay attention.

Riddles are also sometimes word puzzles, which try to lead you down a specific train of thought - usually the wrong one. Because of that, paying close attention to the wording of the riddles is the key to finding the correct answer. If you swallow the words of the riddle at face value, you might end up down the wrong train of thought - so word riddles are helpful ways of making you pay attention to the words themselves. If you've paid attention to the riddle's literary conventions, then it becomes easier to answer!

Frequently Asked Questions

After reading this article, you must have had plenty of opportunities to stimulate your brain through all the riddles we've assembled. Are you interested in finding more riddles or coming up with your own? If so, I've answered some helpful frequently asked questions about making and understanding riddles. These should help you get a headstart!

What is the purpose of a riddle?

Naturally, riddles are made to stimulate the mind. Their focus on wordplay, abstract or vague descriptions, and unusual trains of thought make the person who's asked think hard about the proper answer. Because of that, they're great brain teasers and brain trainers for everyone.

How do you make a riddle?

When making your riddle, the idea is to think of the answer first before the question. First, select the subject of your riddle. Then, try to find out as much about it as you can. Find out something true about the subject, then use clever wordplay to form a question about that fact. It takes some practice to make some good riddles, so keep trying until you can make a difficult riddle to answer!

Do riddles have to rhyme?

Not all riddles have to rhyme! Rhyming riddles are just a means to confuse the one being asked, to shadow the answer from their view. If you can make it rhyme, you are making it harder to answer - but some questions don't have to rhyme to be difficult. Do it only if you want to, or want to practice your rhyming skills.

How do I teach my child to write riddles?

The best way is to get them acquainted with riddles early on. Buy them a book of riddles to start, and let them learn on their own about them, providing advice when needed. After they've collected enough experience and familiarity with riddles, you can start to help them create their own - and in time, they'll be able to make their own riddles, which they'll undoubtedly ask you!

Does solving riddles make you smarter?

Riddles are brain training exercises designed to make you think differently about how you approach a question. They broaden your perspective and encourage you to think outside the box. So, they can help you become smarter by changing your thinking! Solving riddles proves that you're capable of alternative thinking, thereby making you smarter.

eHarmony Reviews - Top 3 Factors That Make It A Killer Dating App

New? Start here. | This post contains affiliate links. That means that we receive a commission for purchases made on them (more info).

Scouring the internet for eHarmony reviews? Not sure if this dating site is for you? Then look no further than our eHarmony review.

As a relationship and dating expert featured on UpJourney and Wise Bread, I know all about dating sites. When it comes to dating websites, few are detailed and accessible as eHarmony. From its personalized matches to its user-friendly interface, it is one of the best dating websites.

So if you want to learn more and maybe find the woman of your dreams, keep reading to see if eHarmony is the right dating app for you.


What is eHarmony?

eHarmony is a top online dating site out there. Unlike other websites that ask you generic questions to match you with other people, it has put together a quick, easy and effective compatibility quiz to make sure they pick the right matches for you.

It is easy to sign up. All you need is your name and email address, which will take care of the rest. The matching process is so easy and quick that you'll be matched with others before you know it. And because their algorithm is based on science, you can be sure that your matches are a perfect match for you.

Originally founded by clinical psychologist and marriage counselor Dr. Neil Clark Warren in 1997, eHarmony has matched so many people they can't even count. In 2007, they also partnered with Oxford University to see the difference between traits found in US and UK couples. So when it comes to finding your perfect match, you can trust eHarmony to find the best ones with personalized matches made specifically for the country you are in.

Want to get this box for yourself or as a gift for someone?

eHarmony Reviews

But is eHarmony really worth it? The answer is yes! It is one of the best websites for dating out there.

It is great for many reasons, so let me break them down.

With many networking websites, we rarely know the science behind how they create matches, let alone successful ones. Unlike other sites, the eHarmony platform is based on scientific research. Their match-making method is based on research conducted by Dr. Neil Clark Warren and Oxford University. So when you're being matched with the person of your dreams, you know there is a method behind the dating madness.

Some other dating websites and apps can be cumbersome and difficult to navigate. However, the eHarmony app is easy to join. In fact, eHarmony users have no problem finding compatible partners because of its user-friendly interface. So if you're someone who would love to give this dating service a chance, but you're afraid that it will be too complicated, don't worry. Their streamlined service makes it easy to see your matches and messages.

With such a meaty questionnaire, you would think it would take a little while to find a compatible match. But it doesn't! Once you have completed the questionnaire, matches will become instantly available. So while other apps and dating sites are trying to find matches for you, you'll be able to use the top-notch eHarmony dating site immediately. It's safe to say that you'd be getting the most out of the best dating site on the market.

If, while you're using the eHarmony website, you find that your preferences are too restrictive, you can always go back and change them. This is great, especially if you have moved to a new city. You can change everything from your personal preferences to distance.

If changing your preferences seems a little too risky, you can always try their "What If" option. This function takes your preferences and looks for matches just outside your current scope. You can always cast your net just a little wider when you feel stuck in a dating rut. You never know who you might meet.

When it comes to the dating website market, we all are looking for the one that matches us with the people we are most suited to. And eHarmony does just that. From its initial questionnaire to the matches it finds for you, it hits the nail on the head every time.

Why We Love eHarmony: 2 Reasons

How good is eHarmony? Let me count the ways.

Here are two reasons why we love eHarmony: 

What If function

While having specific preferences is great, sometimes you just need to broaden your horizon a little bit. With eHarmony's "What If" function, you can let it look just outside your preferences. You never know; she might just be out there. It also gives you a sneak peek into what can happen if you stray outside your comfort zone. The perfect eHarmony member might also be looking for you in the "What If" function.

Messaging service

Some websites think their messaging service needs to be complicated to look expensive. This site doesn't buy into this. Their messaging service is quick and simple to use, so you can respond as quickly as possible when you get a message from a match.

Things We Don’t Love: 2 Reasons

While there are plenty of reasons to love eHarmony, there is always a downside.

Here are two reasons why we don't like eHarmony: 


Anything worth having comes with a high value. So, the eHarmony cost may be slightly higher than other dating sites. There are only three options for the type of subscription you can get, but there doesn't seem to be much difference between them other than a reduced price for a longer contract instead of increased functionality.

Familiar Faces

While eHarmony's algorithm tries its best to find the best match for you, it may match you with people you already know. Because of a detailed compatibility quiz, eHarmony matches are usually people you may already have common interests with. While it can't be a mind reader, it can be a bit annoying when your match list contains people you know. I guess that's why they have a handy hide function.

Pros vs Cons of eHarmony

All this information is great, but what you really want is information about the best and worst parts of eHarmony, right? Well, here you go!


What If?

At the start of the process, you complete a compatibility test that matches you with the most compatible people. If you choose to subscribe, there is a "What If?" option. This allows you to cast your net a little wider and lets you see 30 more matches outside your preferences. This is a feature that not any dating platform can have.

Hiding Matches

If you live somewhere with a small population, you might find people you know. To make sure they don't come up in your matches again, you have the option to hide the match. Plus, it also allows new users into your algorithm, giving you multiple chances to find a good match.

Conversation Starters

It can be daunting just setting up your eHarmony profile, let alone knowing what to do when you match with someone. The eHarmony messaging service has included some really handy conversation starters. So when you start a conversation, you don't have to think of something witty or clever. Just let it help you take the first step.


Limited Free Functionality

When you sign up, you have the option to pay a monthly subscription. If you want to try eHarmony for free, you can. The problem is that when you try and see your matches, you won't be able to see a picture. You can still message them, but you won't know what they look like until you meet them!


The standard plan gives you basic functionality and is the best-paid option, especially if you are going to use eHarmony on a trial basis. You don't get much more functionality when you pick the Premium Plus or Premium Extra subscription service. The only extra you get is being able to see when a message has been seen. Mostly, premium members can afford the little additional feature. So that's a plus in their favor.

eHarmony Reviews Price

When it comes to subscription options, it has three main subscription options. While some of the subscription packages range in price, they all come with basic functionality.

Here is a brief summary of the subscription options :

Image Subscription Plan Price

Standard Lite: 6-month plan (price per month) £13.87

Premium Plus: 12-month plan (price per month) £9.97

Premium Extra: 24-month plan (price per month) £6.97

Is eHarmony worth it?

It's really difficult to find fault with this dating site. It's easy to set up and easy to use. And with its instant and precision matching service, you can't really go wrong. The best thing about the whole service is how easy it is to talk to a potential match, making it so much easier to start talking and hopefully get to that first date.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you still have some unanswered queries about eHarmony reviews and if it's the dating site for you? These frequently asked questions might just do the trick.

Is eHarmony free?

The Basic Membership is an option to try for free. However, it will not show you the photos of the people you want to message. eHarmony is a paid service that has subscription packages that have few variations among them.

The Premium Membership ranges from £6.97/month to £13.87/month. It gives you access to eHarmony's full suite of features, including unlimited matches and messaging, enhanced search, and the ability to see all your matches' photos.

How can a match be removed from eHarmony?

If you're not really into the match you got, or if you started talking to someone, but it fizzled out, then don't fret. You can still choose to delete the match. Go to that person's profile and click on the 3-dot menu in the upper right corner.

For matches you haven't yet communicated with, choose Delete Match. For matches, you're already in communication with, select Remove Contact.

On eHarmony, are there any phony profiles?

Fake profiles are all the rage in today's social media-heavy world. However, on a top dating site like this, you can be 100% confident that the people you see and speak to are all legit. The eHarmony platform ensures genuine connections with real people.

How can I access my eHarmony Personality Profile?

Have trouble navigating? Here's a tip. To access your eHarmony Personality Profile, Log in and open the dropdown menu next to your picture on the top-right. Click on Data & Settings. Under Personality Profile, click on Download report.

Is eHarmony for serious relationships?

Many sites offer different kinds of interactions for a desired type of relationship. Rest assured that this site, like Christian Mingle and Bumble, is geared towards serious and permanent relationships.

6 Ways to Dress to Impress: What to Wear For a Zoom Interview? Tue, 13 Sep 2022 03:12:18 +0000 Man working on his laptop while outside - What To Wear For A Zoom Interview

This post offers tips on what to wear for a Zoom interview. You will also know how to ace common interview questions and other Zoom interview tips.

I worked as a company hiring manager for many years and knew the best practices to get people engaged. I have shared my HR insights on popular websites such as Outwit Trade and Up Journey, so you can trust me to give only the best insights.

Let's get started.


Why Do Hiring Managers Prefer A Virtual Interview?

Unlike a traditional interview, an online interview accelerates the entire job hiring process. It is also time-saving for both parties. It also gives candidates the flexibility and option to work remotely and in-office.

A video interview also lets HR personnel interview applicants regardless of their location.

What To Wear For A Zoom Interview - 6 Things To Keep In Mind

First impressions last, and it also applies to job interviews. People looking for jobs have to attend interviews, whether in-person or a video call interview. Applicants should treat their Zoom meeting interviews like any other job interview.

You should also know how to respond to common interview questions and look professional. There are countless proven reasons you need to dress well, especially when you are going on job interviews. That means wearing professional-looking Zoom interview attire according to dress for success studies.

Here are 6 reminders of what to wear in a Zoom interview:

1. Avoid wearing large hooped or dangling earrings and heavy makeup.

You're not going to a weekend party in a downtown bar. Remember, you are to impress the hiring manager with your attire. At this point, large and chunky earrings are a no-no.

2. For women, avoid body-hugging dresses, plunging necklines, or skimpy skirts. For men, know the right suit fit for your body type. Don't forget to iron your clothes, too!

We get it: you worked hard for the body you have now, and it deserves some lovin' and recognition. The HR office is not the perfect place to show off, though. Make sure your clothes aren't wrinkly when you step into the interviewer's territory.

3. Avoid wearing clothes with bright colors. This includes neon, yellow, pink, baby blue, etc. Opt for neutral colors or darker shades instead.

While you are dressed to impress, wearing loud neon outfits is not the best option. Instead, take that nice dress shirt out of the closet and look your best on your next Zoom call interview.

4. What you wear in a virtual interview depends on the position and industry you are applying for. Still, it is best to wear business attire.

No need to wear formal clothes unless you are going to a wedding or any formal events.

5. Fix your hair. It is your best asset, especially in an online interview.

Everyone has gone through a bad haircut, and we have tackled how to deal with it at Galtelligence. But make sure it doesn't happen on your virtual job interview day. Know how to part your hair and style it to look confident and professional.

6. Even if it's an online interview, please take it seriously if you want to get the job.

Log in on time. Fix the technical stuff beforehand. Add a professional virtual background and a ring light for good lighting.

Prepare your answers to potential questions. Take a deep breath, relax, look at the interviewer at eye level, and ace that remote interview!

Hybrid or a Fully Remote/Online Work Is The Future

Working in a corporate setting can be an introvert's worst nightmare. Thankfully, there are fully-remote jobs for people who hate people. Specifically, those who do not want to work in a company culture with nosy coworkers and demanding bosses.

The COVID-19 pandemic also created a huge impact on work arrangements. About 8% of remote-capable employees were pre-pandemic in an exclusive work-from-home setting. Meanwhile, nearly a third worked in a hybrid (remote + on-site) setting, Gallup reported.

Because of the pandemic, most remote-capable employees had to work from home. However, some continue to do so up to this day. The same report revealed that some worked in a hybrid schedule as well.

Given the changing work preferences, there is no denying that remote work and hybrid setups are here to stay.

Frequently Asked Questions

Knowing the best Zoom interview outfits is one thing. Acing the video conferencing interview itself is another. As a job seeker, anything can happen in an interview. That is why you must prepare if you want that job. Here are more frequently asked questions about online interviews and how to ace them:

How do I know through the online interview that my future boss is a good leader?

No one wants to work with a toxic boss. As a potential employee, working with a leader, not a boss, will be nice. These are two different things, and every employee should know the qualities of a good leader.

Some tell-tale signs that your future boss is a good leader include:

  • They are transparent, approachable, and team-oriented
  • Interested in your personal and professional development
  • Good active listening skills
  • Inspiring and pushes you to become better
  • Open-minded and open to other people's ideas
  • Genuinely cares for the employees' welfare

What is the best color to wear for a Zoom interview?

The color you wear can impact your mood and how hiring managers perceive you as an applicant.

In general, it is safe to say that you should wear neutral colors in an online interview. This includes shades of white, black, gray, and blue. Meanwhile, avoid loud colors such as red, orange, yellow, or neon in an interview.

How do I know if the interview went well?

Signs that your phone interview went well are the following:

  • It lasted longer than expected and felt more of a conversation
  • The interview has already told you what you will do in the job role, with descriptions, details, etc.
  • You are already introduced to potential colleagues and executives.
  • You might be asked if you are still interested in the position and if you have other upcoming interviews.

How long should a virtual interview last?

Virtual interviews usually last between 15 minutes and an hour and a half. It depends on where you are in the job interview process.

An interview question is usually also open-ended. Such questions give interviewees the chance to express themselves.

More Work-Related Tips

Zoom job interviews can be as nerve-racking as in-person interviews. But one thing is for sure: You must dress to impress if you want to impress your potential employer and get the job so bad.

  1. "How do I write my 2 weeks notice?" Have you asked yourself this at one point? Here are tips for creating and handing over your resignation notice.
  2. You can't please everyone. But dealing with a rude coworker is another story. Here are professional ways how to deal with a rude coworker.
  3. Lift a load on your chest and get the pay you deserve by knowing when to ask for a raise.
  4. Create a fun and productive workplace by learning how to keep employees happy.

In Conclusion

When it comes to job interviews, you should prepare your responses. Likewise, know what to wear for a Zoom interview and ace common interview questions.

We all know how nerve-racking job interviews can be. It's all about preparing in advance and "slaying" the interview. Get your dream job and good luck!

10 Backhanded Compliments - Be The Bigger Person & Avoid These Now! Tue, 13 Sep 2022 03:05:56 +0000 Man Tapping Another Guy's Back - Backhanded Compliments

via: Unsplash / NONRESIDENT

Ever received backhanded compliments? We all encounter criticism, but getting them in the guise of a compliment hurts worse.

As a life coach, I've authored posts on dealing with people you meet on the daily and I've been published on sites like and UpJourney. I've also dealt with left-handed comments or left-handed compliments in my years of experience.

If you're unsure what is a backhanded compliment, I listed down backhanded compliment examples. I'll also teach you things to say in response to these mean comments.

Let's begin.


What are Backhanded Compliments?

Backhanded compliments are essentially insults that are disguised as positive comments or remarks. More often than not, these left-handed comments undermine the receivers' abilities. Perpetrators of these mean observations may or may not intentionally say them.

Sad to say, most people tell them to hurt another person deliberately.

Back-handed Compliment vs. Double-Sided Comments - What's the Difference?

The main difference between backhanded compliments and double-sided comments is that backhanded compliments are only insulting in nature, while double-sided comments can have a broader or different purpose. For example, telling a girl that she's pretty for someone who's not rich is a backhanded comment. On the other hand, telling someone that they're rich, so they should shoulder most of the expenses, is one of the many examples of double-sided comments.

In essence, double-sided remarks often involve something to "gain" for the sayer. Nonetheless, both remarks have the ability to hurt another person.

Here are other examples of double-sided comments:

  1. You're smart, right? Then you should teach your younger (relative) how to do their homework.
  2. I feel like you will be a great (professional) one day. That is if you could afford college.
  3. (Your name) is pretty when you wear makeup. I don't like wearing makeup because I don't need it.

False praise can break someone's day in a snap. So you really have to say what you mean and mean what you say. If your goal is to say something nice, then tell your compliment as is, with no ifs and no buts.

10 Examples of Uncomplimentary Remarks You Should Avoid Telling People

Never tell a woman a left-handed compliment if you're looking for romance. These uncomplimentary remarks are mean, insulting, and have huge turn-offs for women. Never be a backhanded complimenter.

I'll resound it as much as I can. Removing this trait from your life takes work, but it's possible. The change starts with awareness.

Here are ten backhanded compliments to avoid telling people:

1. You worked hard today!

It's not a good idea to come up to someone and fake praise or patronize them for their hard work. It sounds like a genuine compliment, but it also suggests that they don’t do as much work on other days. Basically, you're not saying that your coworker did a good job; you're saying that they should've done more.

2. You look great.

Imagine hearing this on a bad day. Patronizing and more of an insult than a compliment. Self-conscious people, especially women, are sensitive to comments about their bodies and weight. Instead, omit the second sentence.

3. You look great for your age.

Fake flattery is the worst, especially if it's condescending like this one. Looking younger or having a young pretty face doesn’t change that they’re still older than they appear. It makes them conscious of their age.

4. You’re wonderful. How come you’re still single?

Who cares about social status and social norms? Being told you're wonderful but still unable to find a partner is a really bad thing to experience. This comment sounds patronizing and insulting, while flatterers pass it as humor or flirting.

5. You did great on this, considering your abilities.

Passive-aggressive and screams jealousy if the context is work-related. To elaborate, the latter part undermines their talents and efforts. No one likes being told they’re not up to the task.

6. You tried your best.

Condescending. This means to say that they didn’t do enough, even though they tried their best. This can also affect the receiving end's confidence negatively.

7. You’re so articulate!

The word for this one is condescending. It's not nice to imply that they don't look articulate enough from a glance, especially for strangers who don't know each other.

8. You speak English so well!

Condescending and generally committed by foreign visitors in other countries. This insult in disguise of praise is subtly racist, thinking other people can’t speak your language well enough. English is pretty easy to learn, to be honest.

9. You’re smarter than you look.

Condescending. Naturally, no one wants to be told they look dumb. Imagine if a worker says this to another colleague. That would be a killjoy at the office. Just get a book and work on bettering yourself if you can't say something genuinely nice.

10. I wish I were as carefree as you.

Passive-aggressive and definitely not a good conversation starter at all. Plenty of people think that this is an okay thing to say. And that's ignorance at work.

Envying them for their nonchalance is subtly telling them they don’t have worries, which they do.

How To React To Uncomplimentary Comments

Don't fight fire with fire. The same goes for responding to backhanded comments. Someone may tell you these insults dressed up as praises to rile you up.

However, others might not be aware that they're doing it; in reality, they mean well and never meant to offend you.

Here are 4 steps to reacting to uncomplimentary remarks:

Step #1: Breathe and keep calm.

Losing your cool during a frustrating moment is okay, but lose it in your own time, in a space that you find safe. Don't let the person with an intention to hurt your feelings have the satisfaction of crying or responding how they would've wanted you to. Instead, take a breath and collect your thoughts.

Step #2: Clarify what they mean.

If you want to know the person's true intentions, ask them to explain what they meant. Oftentimes, people will have a moment of self-reflection, and their response to your question will ultimately tell you if they meant or didn't mean to offend.

Step #3: Tell them how you feel.

The next step is to tell them how you felt after hearing what they said. For example, if they tell you how you did great at work today, you can express how you've been trying to do better at your job for a long time and that you appreciate the acknowledgment.

However, the way your coworker said it feels patronizing and condescending. You would appreciate it more if they hadn't said anything.

Step #4: Move on.

To end your reaction, make sure that there are no more hard feelings between the two of you. This way, you can leave the past behind and move on with your day.

Frequently Asked Questions

Have more questions about backhanded comments? I'll answer the most asked questions here.

Are backhanded comments passive-aggressive?

Most of the time, they are. However, there are cases where the one saying them does not realize that they are passive-aggressive and hurtful at the same time. Don't keep your silence, though. Make sure to let the other person know how you feel about their insult.

Why do people backhand a compliment?

People say backhanded compliments with insecurities that they want to put on another person. Often, they will say it to someone they envy. And while they cannot be mean directly, they will disguise the insult as praise.

What is the psychology of someone who gives left-handed comments?

Some behavioral studies point out that people use backhanded comments as a strategy to get another person to like them. The unpopular opinion is that people who often say left-handed comments that mean to offend are cowards who cannot face their insecurities.

Is it okay to avoid dealing with friends who love to give you side comments?

Yes. Your peace and emotions should always come first. So whether it be giving up on social media or friends, acquaintances, or even loved ones who are mean to you, you should choose your own happiness. However, you must express your thoughts on their way of talking to you before distancing yourself from them.
