Why People Who Don’t Chase Love Are Blessed By Cupid – 703 Words

Men and Women are often frustrated when they are rebuffed in their efforts to engage with a love interest. Women regard themselves as being on the receiving end of dating – the man can ask, but the woman has to wait to be asked. So, Mr. Wonderful appears, and she goes for a ride on an emotional roller-coaster – all to no avail. Men tend to fall for the “game” rather than the girl. Chasing after a woman who doesn’t reciprocate can turn a man into an obsessive, unappealing, lovesick puppy. What woman is going to fall for him?

Not surprisingly, many people who don’t regard dating as an archaic mating ritual, seem to do better in the love stakes, and they don’t appear to have to try hard to attract partners. A report in Psychology Today claims that they do have some observable personality traits – they are independent, confident, contained, and un-needy. Here are some reasons why Cupid favors them:

They Don’t Chase

The misconception that for men dating is all about “The Chase” is still a popular meme even in the age of greater equality between the sexes. However, many men don’t want to be chased. Sorry ladies, but calling him twice a day, accompanied by frequent emailing and texting, may flatter him at first, but in the end he will be turned off! Non-chasers know that if a romantic prospect disappears, it’s not because they didn’t give hot pursuit, but because this is not the right person.

They Don’t Spend Time Trying to Make Someone Fall in Love with Them

They understand that such an infatuation will waste energy and just end up alienating the other person. They know that love can’t be forced and that the right someone will fall for them without them having to work at it.

They Give Love a Chance to Find Them

Their whole existence isn’t mortgaged to the dating game. Instead, they relax, pursue their daily activities, and get on with their lives. They believe that they are much more likely to meet an attractive person when they are not searching for them. Instead of chasing the opposite sex, they chase their dreams and ambitions or their bucket list. When a real love opportunity does arise, they don’t need an explanation, because it is the explanation.

They Don’t Sit Waiting for That Call

Ok, these days, people have their phones with them, but the principle is the same. They don’t dream that things will be different, lose sleep, and make themselves insane waiting for a three a.m. phone call. That text bubble can be your best friend or your worst nightmare. They look up from their phone and live their lives where they stand a real chance of finding that special someone.

They Don’t Cancel a Date with a Friend

They don’t immediately rush to cancel other plans when their love interest calls. They want a significant other who understands that they have friends outside of a romantic relationship and is not threatened by that.

They Don’t Put on an Act

They don’t gush to the other person about how awesome he or she is. A person who seems overly enthusiastic, too eager, or calls three times a day can end up seeming like an intruder in the other person’s space.

Is he an avid baseball fan but she’s never even been to a game? Does she like romantic movies but he despises them? Ok, some compromise is necessary here if the relationship is to flourish, but they don’t pretend that they are equally enthusiastic about whatever it is. Vive la difference!

They Engage in Activities that Interest Them

They realize that they are much more likely to meet a person with similar interests by, for example, joining a hiking club, a choir, a political campaign, or a debating society. They know that romantic relationships can develop from friendships made during mutually enjoyable pursuits. They focus on their growth in life which gives them an attractive air of confidence and makes them a better prospect for a life partnership.

When you do meet that special person, you won’t need to pursue them, because you’ll both want to walk side by side in the same direction.


Business Phone Systems – 448 Words

At ………………… we understand that there is no “one-size-fits-all” answer when it comes to your business phone system. That’s why we offer a variety of voice services to fit your specific needs. We take an holistic approach to your technology to determine what is the best fit for your business as it is now and as you plan it to be in the future. We also provide the highest level of support and training to each customer. Our aim is to ensure a quality installation and continued satisfaction with your new business technology solution.

What Types of Phone Solutions Are Available?

Key System Unit (KSU) and KSU-Less

This basic business telephone system has a central switching device as its main component and is suitable for small businesses that have five to forty employees.

Its counterpart, the KSU-Less, is differentiated by its portability and flexibility. KSU-Less does not employ a central unit, and is more suitable for a smaller company consisting of ten or fewer employees. It’s a system with wireless capability, i.e. no wirings or phone cables.

Private Branch Exchange (PBX) and Hosted PBX

A PBX system is suited to a larger company with forty plus employees. It has advanced features such as automatic routing of incoming calls, and an uninterruptible power supply capability.

A hosted PBX system means that the switching devices are not installed on your company’s premises; instead your system will be hosted by a specific telephone provider, which means that you don’t need to be concerned with installation and maintenance.

Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and Hosted VoIP

The VoIP is the latest innovation to take place in the world of unified communications. Such a system can work with any size company, but its price is dependent upon the number of users. It utilizes the internet, allowing the caller and the user to communicate with each other even if they are located in two different countries. All telephone functions can be operated through the computer itself, thus making it more convenient for users when assisting callers.

Hosted VoIP, similar to hosted PBX, is hosted by a service provider, thus allowing your business to save on installation and maintenance fees.

What About The Cloud?

More businesses are moving their data and services to the cloud. The cloud does away with problems associated with premise-based communications – physical space constraints, hardware obsolescence, incompatibility, etc.

………………… can assist you to accomplish a gradual transition to cloud services when appropriate. We examine your connectivity to determine to what extent your infrastructure is capable of handling cloud-based solutions. Then we determine which technologies on your current system are at or near the end of life and can be replaced with cloud-based solutions.

The Best and Worst Toilets at UK Music Festivals – 327 Words

Every now and again some interested party decides to survey UK music festival goers about various aspects of their festival experience. This provides data on the best and worst toilets at UK music festivals.

Going back to 2005, festival goers rated the Reading and Leeds Festivals as having the worst toilets. If you can stand to look, click here for a photograph. Glastonbury and V Festival came out the winners in the best toilets category. In fact, some consider Glastonbury loos to be part of the festival experience. In a 2013 survey, a quarter of the respondents stated that what they missed most were clean toilets. 71% said they would like luxury loos at festivals

A loo tour of festival sites will likely reveal the following types of facilities.


These aren’t bad IF they are treated with respect by users. They lock, thus preventing an inebriated festival reveler from barging in. Sometimes they even flush.

Slurry Pits with Long Drops

Very basic, consisting of large metal frames placed over a large slurry pit dug in the ground. Each frame contains approximately twenty cubicles. The cubicles have small doors, which don’t lock. They are airy because they have no roof (a mixed blessing if it’s raining!).

“Continental” Toilets

These are the holes in the ground with footprints on either side type. Pleasant enough if you have good balance! Buckets of water and brushes are provided for cleanups.


For those who are fortunate enough to be able to relieve themselves standing up, urinals are available in various forms. 

In Conclusion

Don’t be deterred from attending a music festival because you are worried about going to the loo. Decent toilet facilities can be found to make the experience not as unpleasant as you may imagine.

………………………… are expert and highly reputable providers of GigLoo toilets for UK music festivals. These facilities consist of state of the art, eco-friendly and highly efficient toilet units. For more information, please contact us.
