All the cheap talk about relationships intellectuals give on TV or the internet is pure ornamental.
Saving or maintaining a relationship is all about recognizing the most romantic solution possible and do exactly the opposite.
Don’t spend time together
It may sound very obvious but there are lots of couples that make this mistake.
It is pretty clear that to keep a couple alive in the long term you need to enjoy the fun time separate.
Especially when it involves a hobby that one partner really likes.
The absolute worst thing you can do to another human being is to force him to engage in an activity he doesn’t enjoy.
In some small minds, sleeping apart means unhappy relationship.
In real life, sleeping apart from your significant other every night on purpose is the best you can do for the relationship.
A huge part of your success in life depends on how much and how well you sleep.
Well, there is almost no way those slumber hours are going to be improved on by adding another person into the mix.
On average, people are woken up six times a night by their partner.
Hogging the sheets, rolling over, legs movements, sweats and night terrors are just a few examples of things that ruin the quality of our rest night after night.
Marry someone ugly or stupid
The happiest and most successful relationships are between people with a huge number of similarities.
However, there seems to be two very big exceptions.
People want to hook up with someone who is both less smart and uglier than you.
Lowering your standards will make you much happier in the long run.
In other words, uglier lovers last longer.
Researchers also found that to fit the ideal marriage formula, the wife should be smarter than her husband.
Having an altered vision about your significant other is the most important ingredient in a couple.
You need to be able to delude yourself.
Make all necessary efforts to end up seeing your couple as perfect, even when deeply inside you may know is ugly and stupid.
That my friends, is the secret to lifelong happiness.
the world must know the truth!
Tips to live longer
Thanks to Oprah and other nice people on TV we’re all very aware of what it takes to live a healthy life.
We need to take vitamins, make exercise and drink water.
What I’m writing about is not random advices, is science.
There are several habits that will help us live longer.
It doesn’t seem possible that being poor would make you live longer.
After all, while life is more important than money, you need money to buy the things that keep you alive.
In turbulent economic times, you would expect the life expectancy of the population to lower as unemployment increases and nobody can afford to pay for doctors and vitamins.
Also, instead of eating expensive fresh fruit and vegetables, we subsist on the warm bowl of ramen noodles.
But statistics shows that economic hardship increases life expectancy.
According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the death rate in the U.S. declined and life expectancy rose during the whole financial collapse from 2007 to 2010.
The reason is that poor people can’t afford to go out so they don’t use cars as much as we do so they have fewer traffic fatalities.
For poor people, fun activities like drugs, cigarettes and liquor are luxuries so they rarely do them.
Plus, staying home means forming stronger bonds with family, which is universally known to be good for your health.
At the end of the day they have better habits than rich people.
They don’t have jobs which is good for stress levels so fewer poor people suffer heart attacks.
You know the person who never shows up in a bad mood and always remembers your birthday with cupcakes and hugs.
According to another study from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, people who approach life with an overly optimistic, cheerful attitude, die young.
The study found that optimistic extroverted people are way less cautious than grumps.
Happy people take more risks and are less aware of consequences.
They’re the ones who dance in the rain and get struck by lightning.
Do you hear that, free spirits?
You’re going to die young.
This is another one that seems impossible.
We all know of at least one famous person who drank himself to death.
If that would make you think that drinking alcohol is bad for your health you are wrong.
People who totally abstain from alcohol have a higher mortality rate than those who enjoy it.
A study from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology reveals that people who had one to three drinks a day are two times more likely to live longer than those who drink water or soda.
You wonder why?
The MIT also explains that the results are because nondrinkers have fewer social ties and less family support than the funny drinkers.
People who don’t drink tend to be more boring and have fewer friends which are factors that affect longevity.
And that my friends, is why I’m going to live forever.

How to safely shop online
We all like to shop online without long lanes, fitting rooms or sale people to deal with.
However shopping online can be tricky so it’s best to pay attention and be aware.
These tips for gift shopping online may certainly come in handy when you are all excited about shopping online.
If you use your computer for shopping then please remember these tips for shopping online to make your experience one that you would want to repeat.
The number one tip is to use trusted websites.
A few good examples are Amazon, Best Buy, Target, Apple and Toys R Us.
If you use a website like eBay, use discretion because you can have a bad experience.
Too many websites are out to take advantage of you and your wallet so don’t let that happen to you.
Try to avoid shared computer to make an online purchase.
It’s simply not safe, if you have no other choice at least remember to log out and then clear your cookies from the browser when you are finished.
Also exercise caution when using your own laptop in a public place, while inputting your credit card information someone can easily look over your shoulder so sit toward the back and keep an eye out for anyone trying to peer over your shoulder.
If you want to buy a gift card buy them straight from the source.
Buying gift cards from sites like eBay can be dangerous since there is no way to prove that your gift card won’t be empty when you receive it.
It’s best to buy a gift card from a trusted website like Amazon or iTunes.
Beware of the too good to be true rule since promises are all around the online world.
These include sales pitches that offer you a free electronic device with the purchase of something else that only costs a fraction of what you would pay for that device.
Something else to beware of is a website that asks for your social security number or birthdate, you will never need these pieces of personal information to shop online.
Anytime you are about to make a purchase online you should always check for the lock icon in the status bar of your browser.
The url for the webpage should start with the lock icon in order for you to know that you’re about to make a secure transaction.
And always remember PayPal is a safe and secure way to pay online.
If using your phone to place orders is better to download the store application you want to purchase from.
With many trusted stores you can browse and then actually make a purchase directly from the application you avoid browsing the internet with your phone and got bugger.
Some applications even offer to save your information for a faster checkout next time which is not recommended in the event of a stolen or lost phone.
