1. Have a date!!

Come on it’s not a date if only you show up. Make sure the person you are planning to date is worth the date. I know dates may be old school to some people since now, everyone enjoys Netflix and chill.

2. Pick a location

Based on you or your date seem interested in making sure it's somewhere where you will actually enjoy the person. As well as the location. You can take your chances and head out for a movie, dinner, concert, or a museum.

3. Dress Code

Wear something that you feel comfortable in. Do not overdo it. Take it easy on the beauty products. No one wants to meet a clown on the first date. Nor do they want to choke on the smell of your cologne or perfume.

4. Be Yourself

Remember this is a new friend someone you are trying to get to know. This is not the date that will land you a marriage tomorrow. Relax, take your time, and let them pick up on your inner vibe.

5. Get to know one another

Don’t just talk your dates head off about work, problems, or weakness. Learn about them as much as they would like to learn about you. Just do not overdo it. What are their hobbies, family, dislikes, and like? Save the complaining for later.

6. Express your feelings

Figure out what you want and go after it. If you are interested in finding someone to marry, have kids, or just want some fun. Please let you date know so that each of you are both on the same page. Your date might be into the same thing you are in. Careful with this subject sometimes this can be a little nerve wrecking but there must be an understanding.

7. Respect boundaries

There may be things that you are really interested in asking your date. Due to the fact, some people do not like to put it all out there on the first date. So respect privacy if they’re not willing to open up to you about certain things in their life.

8. Participate

If you are going out somewhere get involved in whatever you are doing. For example, if you are going to a museum actually look at what you are viewing are ask a question. Tell your date your favorite piece and why you love the work so much.

9. Don't run from the check

Nowadays anybody can pay for the date if not both people. DO NOT DINE AND DASH. At least offer to pay some of the tab.

10. Keep in touch

If you are interested in meeting again then this is great. Plan another date. If not then let your date know you’re not interested or you would rather be friends.

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
