If He Does These Five Things Move on to Someone Else

5 Signs Your Boyfriend Is Not that Into You
The Dating Games

1. He doesn't communicate

One of the telltale signs that your boyfriend is not interested in you is that he never initiates conversation. If you are the only person who contacts him either over the phone, through email or text, then it is safe to assume that he really has no desire to interact with you. Generally, even the most phone-phobic men will text or call their significant others if they are somewhat emotionally attached.

If you find yourself in a relationship with someone who will pick up the phone when you call or text, but never actually call you unprompted, then you should move on to someone who will reciprocate your desire to communicate.

2. He tries to make you jealous

Everyone gets a little jealous from time to time, but if your boyfriend is putting time and effort into making you jealous, then steer clear and move on to someone more deserving of your love and affection.

Is your boyfriend talking about his ex girlfriends around you, making comparisons between you and other women and then getting excited when he senses your jealousy? If you are in a relationship with someone who gets pleasure from your suffering and feelings of insecurity, you are better off on your own.

3. He forgets everything

Does your boyfriend forget your birthday, your phone number, and/or your anniversary? If your boyfriend is that forgetful, he is not emotionally engaged with you. If you find yourself reminding your boyfriend about important events in your life, then stop wasting your time with someone who doesn’t value you or take the time to remember important dates and information about your life. You deserve to be appreciated, you deserve to have your birthday celebrated and you deserve an anniversary dinner. If you find yourself alone on your anniversary because your boyfriend “forgot about it,” forget him!

4. He will not do anything for you

When a man is interested in you, he will do things for you. Men who love and care for their girlfriends go out of their way to “build that nest for them.” If your boyfriend fixes a tire for you, builds a new desk and does other odd jobs for you, that’s a good sign. If, on the other hand, he sees you carrying seven grocery bags and doesn’t offer to help, then steer clear.

5. He makes you insecure

If you find yourself in a relationship with a man who makes you feel insecure, end it immediately. If your boyfriend is extra critical of you, it is safe to assume he is not that interested. People who are overly critical of others are emphasizing the negative in others. Everyone has good and bad qualities and idiosyncrasies that may be somewhat annoying. Understanding people are accepting of others knowing full well that humans are flawed creatures. You have to take the good with the bad to have meaningful relationships. If your boyfriend is not accepting of you the way you are, then find someone who is.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
