How to Approach Beautiful Women

A man and a woman looking at one another in a bar.

For some, it’s easy to approach a beautiful woman. For others, it can be quite nerve-racking. Whether you’re confident or shy, outgoing or an introvert, the key is to remember that, although most people do tend to notice appearances first, beauty is only skin deep — and that representing yourself in an open, honest manner is the best way to start any relationship.

Instructions

1. Be confident, but not cocky. The fear of rejection can be strong, but it’s something you have to try to fight. Remember that women are usually flattered when a man approaches and compliments them.2. Have an opening line ready, but not anything smarmy. A simple compliment, such as, “Your smile lights up the room,” or “That scarf makes your beautiful eyes shine,” is best.

3. Look her in the eyes and smile. Don’t let your eyes drift anywhere else, and if she is with friends — as many women are when they go out — smile at each one and introduce yourself.

4. Be prepared to converse. Sometimes, the conversation stalls after the opening line. Having something to talk about that goes beyond the weather or where she is from will go a long way in getting her interest. Try asking her how her night is going, or how her week has been.

5. Ask her for her information, if things progress well, but consider asking for an email rather than a phone number. Some women might find that less threatening.

Gender Identity, Sexuality and Gender Expression

Sometimes explaining the differences between gender identity, sexual identity and gender expression can get a bit confusing. Simple explanations tend to not show that these attributes are very different and for the most part unrelated. In fact, I would go as far as to say that the definitions are muddy and different things mean different things to different people.

With this in mind what I have

Transgender Suicide Prevention Brochures from MTPC

Unfortunately the statistics of transgender people who attempt suicide are alarmingly high (over 40%). There is absolutely no doubt that we all must do what we can to prevent these numbers from rising and reverse them.

While browsing through some articles and website I came across two very well laid out pamphlets that are specifically designed as resources for suicide prevention in the

Excellent Post on the “Woman Born Women” Ideology

Of all the arguments out there the women born women argument is the most infuriating to me… I WAS born this way. I have always been a woman. No one has the right to define me other then myself!!!

Anyway, rather then re-post this well though out post I found on a different blog I will just supply a link.

Buying Maternity Clothes- The Joys of Motherhood

Pregnancy is usually a very hard time for the couple. The strength of their relationship is tested as the atmosphere becomes cranky and disturbed. For the mother to be, it is very hard to cope with all the changes taking place in her body. Not only does her physical appearance begin to change, but she undergoes a lot of mental changes too. For starters, most women during pregnancy begin to have cravings at random times during the day. She may be interested in eating Chinese food at 3 AM in the morning for all you know!

However, despite all the hardships, it is also one of the most memorable times for the parents to be. Not only does this strengthen their bond, but they get to do a lot of things together. For instance, you will need to buy maternity clothes in order to accommodate the baby bump. As you reach the second trimester, your baby bump begins to form.

All of your clothes will stop fitting you, and you will need to buy elastic clothing in order to accommodate the growth of the bump. There are many places that you can buy Breastmates maternity clothes in NZ. Most people have this perception that maternity clothing is supposed to be loose and baggy. That is certainly not true. Here are a few tips that will help you buy the best maternity clothes:

Fashionable Clothing

Many designers have now understood the appeal in the maternity clothing market. As a result, they have introduced a variety of sleek and stylish fashion-wear for moms-to-be. You don’t have to stick with loose gowns and oversized T-shirts anymore. Instead, you can purchase fashionable jeans and shirts too. When buying a conventional pair of jeans, you will look for the right fitting.

However, when buying maternity clothing, you should look for support. Ideally, maternity jeans are loose and have a strong elastic band at the top to support the baby bump. As the bump grows, the elastic band automatically adjusts along the waist. You can easily pair it up with a nice-looking top. Most maternity clothing is made from 100% cotton. However, you can also purchase clothing made of other materials, such as Lycra and polyester too.

Look for Discount Deals

After the baby, you will obviously discard the clothing. As a result, you don’t need to spend a lot of money on maternity clothing. In fact, look for companies that offer discount options and deals. Not only will you be able to get a better deal this way, but it will also help you buy more, by paying less.

There are many companies that sell maternity clothing on the internet in New Zealand. Go through their websites in order to see all the products that they have to offer. Look for companies that have items on sale, and purchase from there. Many neighbourhood clothing vendors also sell maternity clothing. You can also visit their shops in order to see what they have to sell.

More From The Tao Te Ching

Verse 67

All the world says,
“I am important;
I am separate from all the world.
I am important because I am separate,
Were I the same, I could never be important.”

Yet here are three treasures
That I cherish and commend to you:
The first is compassion,
By which one finds courage.
The second is restraint,
By which one finds strength.
And the third is unimportance,
By which one finds influence.

From TBD.com – 5 ways to improve mainstream reporting on trans issues

Last week, local Arlington blog ARLnow.com published a short post—with accompanying photograph—of a shoplifting suspect detained outside the Pentagon City mall. Entitled “Cops Nab Cross-Dressing Shoplifting Suspect,” the piece identified the suspect as a “six-foot tall man dressed as a woman” who had “allegedly stolen an item from a store in the Pentagon City mall.” (TBD later aggregated the

Post Transition Gender Roles – One Trans Man’s Perpective

Written by my good friend Julian…

Sometimes, I wonder if folks who have anti-trans prejudices or proclaim themselves against some sort of “trans ideology” have misconceptions as to what life is like for trans people in our post-coming-out genders. Particularly regarding trans men and trans male spectrum folks, some feminists of certain schools/waves will suggest that of course trans male

Movie Review: Better Than Chocolate

This is a movie about a young lesbian couple who meet and fall in love. While neither of the two main characters are trans women there is a very prominent character named Judy who is. Although the plot is humorous it does show a serious side by highlighting both homophobic and transphobic events. Over all this is an excellent movie worth your time to check out.

Online Communities and Personal Safety

We all want to feel like we belong somewhere. I know when I first started on this road I was very eager to meet people like me. I had never really met anyone who was transgender transsexual or anything remotely like it. While I am not big on joining message boards (I find they get very cliquey) they can offer a sense of community to some people. This may help people feel less isolated or at least

Movie Review: Rent

This movie is based off of the hit Broadway musical. It tells the story of a very diverse group of friends as they struggle with love, AIDS and poverty. It is one of my favorite movies of all time. I love the music and I love the story. I think the message can be summed up in a few lines from one of the songs:
I Live this Moment As My Last
There’s Only Us
There’s Only This
Forget. Regret. Or Life

Movie Review: Transamerica

This movie is a cute story about a trans woman who finds out she fathered a child. Although the mvoie claims to be a comedy I didn’t find it funny… Not because I took it to seriously, it just wasn’t a funny movie. This isn’t to say that it wasn’t good because it was. It is just more of a drama then a comedy.

I think I will just wrap this review up by saying that I think it is great to have a
