Dating Tips For 2021

2021 is shaping up to be an odd year, isn’t it? While 2020 was tragic, overwhelming and draining for most citizens around the world, 2021 has shown us that the world is healing, and that eventually we can go back to our normal lives. Most people are in limbo right now – some are vaccinated, others are waiting for the opportunity, while some are refusing the vaccination – and when you find yourself in limbo, the most natural reaction is to plan for the future.

One thing that has been greatly affected by the coronavirus pandemic is our romantic lives. Some people entered the pandemic while in relationships that either became stronger in the face of adversity, or broke down altogether. Others entered COVID-19 totally single, and have been unable to find matches or dates due to the restrictions we have all faced.

Now that the world is reopening once and for all, all you singles out there are likely to be excited about dating again. But how has dating changed, for better or worse, in 2021? It’s time to find out.

In this blog we will explore post-coronavirus dating etiquette, meeting someone new in 2021, and standing out from the crowd during this wild time. Let’s get started, shall we?

Post-Coronavirus Dating Etiquette

First, let’s discuss the dating etiquette of the modern era. With the emergence of online dating in recent years, it is now possible to date, and even be in relationships with, people who you don’t see in real life. Many people have overseas relationships that are forged through Tinder, forums, gaming or social media. This might sound a little wacky to some people, but for others this works pretty well.

In the age of coronavirus, online dating took on a whole new life of its own. Unable to meet for dinner, drinks, movies or hookups, people took to dating apps and websites to meet new people, chat, and even engage in sexual activity online. So now that we’re able to meet face to face again, have the rules changed? What is the new dating etiquette?

Masks while dating: to wear or not to wear?

Some people are pickier than others about wearing masks, so the crucial thing here is to communicate. If you are meeting up with someone for a first date, ask the question outright. What’s your view on masks? Should we wear face coverings? Are you vaccinated?

Putting these questions out in the open seems like it’d create an awkward tension, but it actually has the opposite effect. You know where you stand, there’s no confusion, and you’re enabling the two of you to set boundaries straight away.

Physical intimacy: yay or nay?

Once again, this is a question of attitude, safety and many other factors. If you are both vaccinated, you can go about your lives as you please, no worries. However, if you haven’t yet been vaccinated, being physically intimate could be a more contentious subject.

You should do what you both feel comfortable with, just don’t expect the other person to instantly jump into bed with you. Things might have to be old-school for a little while longer than normal!

How To Meet Someone In 2021 Without Succumbing To Online Dating

Now there’s the question of how to meet someone. We’ve discussed the fact that online dating is more and more prevalent nowadays, but what other options are available for single people who don’t enjoy online dating?

Let’s take a look at some of the best options for meeting someone new in 2021, without resorting to Tinder, Grindr or any other online forum.

Reach out to friends and get set up

Remember in the 90s, when you’d get set up on dates by mutual friends? It’s time to bring this trend back into 2021!  If you have a close friend who has acted as your wingman in the past, why not let them know you’re looking to meet someone? You could find a true match by getting your friends to play Cupid.

Have the confidence to approach people

Have you met a barista in your local coffee shop who you think is cute? Did you catch eyes with someone across the bar, causing your heart to beat a little faster? It’s time to buck up your confidence and ask somebody out in person.

This can be about as daunting as it gets, especially if you’ve been shot down before. But meeting someone new outside of online dating means having more confidence than the average person – and often, this is a very attractive trait to bring across.

Have Things Really Changed?

Although COVID-19 has changed our world in so many ways, some things really don’t change when it comes to dating. So far we’ve talked about how things in the dating game will be different in 2021, so now let’s cover some aspects of dating that will remain the same no matter what’s going on in the world.

Clear communication and respect is key

Like all romantic relationships since the dawn of time, the way to navigate them is to be clear in your communication and respectful at every turn. Especially when you meet somebody new, there is much time and energy spent on testing each other’s boundaries, learning what the other person enjoys or doesn’t enjoy, and figuring them out. This can take years, lifetimes even, but when you first begin dating it’s important to start as you mean to go on.

Taking the usual precautions

Just like you normally would, it’s crucial to take the regular precautions, particularly when it comes to sex and physical intimacy. Getting yourself regularly tested for STIs is good practice, even when you use appropriate contraception. If you do think you have an STI, you can access treatments such as genital herpes treatment online in an easy way.

Manage your expectations

After coronavirus, many people’s self esteem levels, body confidence and general social confidence are pretty low. We are all out of practice when it comes to chatting in person, socialising and meeting people we aren’t used to. If you feel this way, make sure to manage your expectations.

There may not be a love-at-first-sight moment when you meet the person you’re dating; it may even be a bit awkward and stilted at first. Just be patient and be kind to the other person if they’re feeling nervous too!

Stand Out From The Crowd On The Dating Scene

How does one stand out from the crowd in the dating scene nowadays? There is likely to be a rush of single people all searching for a match now that the world is opening up, so what makes you stand apart from the rest and get noticed?

Being a unique individual

One of the most attractive traits a person can have is to be unapologetically themselves. Don’t sell yourself short for a sanitised version of you – just be you!

Putting yourself out there

Like we mentioned before, having the confidence to make the first move is a very appealing characteristic for any potential partner. You know what you want, and you go for it, and that attitude will get you a long way when it comes to meeting somebody new on the dating scene.

Final Thoughts

Dating in 2021 might be a new kind of challenge, but ultimately it is an exciting opportunity for you to get a new lease of life, jump into something fun, and live life to the fullest after a difficult year.

5 Tips To Better Sleep + Bonus Tip

Can you write down at least five tips on how to sleep better?

1. Make sure your bed is clean and neat and devoid of clutter. Cool new bed sheets and pillows also helps. A comfy bed & pillow also helps so makes things better.

2. Do not go to bed sweaty and dirty. Have a shower before hand if you feel sweaty and grimy. Although I find that I can fall asleep, it feels better when I am cleaner and I enjoy my sleep a lot better.

3. Avoid picking up your mobile phone or tablets once you lie down to go to sleep. I agree that reading sometimes helps us to go to bed so get a book instead. The lights from mobile or tab is very distracting to your eyes and your brain also tends to get “awakened” (for lack of a better term) when your eyes see the light. So once you switch off the lights in your bedroom, do not touch any electronic devices. Also if you are worried about getting calls in the middle of the night, keep your mobile face down on your table.

4. Avoid too much spicy food or heavy food just before your bedtime. Also avoid drinking too much water/liquid just before bedtime. That tends to make you want to get up in the middle of the night. I hate having to get up from bed just as I am feeling sleepy because my bladder is full.

5. Try to keep yourself in a happier mood before bedtime. Watching one of your favourite shows or a comedy movie or sitcom is a good way to keep yourself in a good mood.

Those are my top 5 tips for better sleep. But the title says that I have a bonus 6th tip. Yeah so here it goes.

6. Sex. A good passionate romp in the hay or bed is a good way to tire yourself out and put you in a tired by happy state of mind. Hence a few minutes of talking later and zzzzzz.

If You Were A Dog…

If you were a dog, what type would you be and who would own you?

I would be the family golden retriever. Playful, obedient, loving & loyal to a fault and yet have an independent spirit. I would belong to a young family, brought home as a puppy to a dad & mum pair. Husband and wife looking to start their own family in their new house that they just bought. After a few days of getting used to being the puppy who left his dog family behind and missing his siblings, I will get used to being in my new family and being loved by the humans.

Soon I engage in play, getting taken for walks, hate grooming & getting my nails done at the doggie spa by the girls who work there always give me lots of love and treats. So I am gentle with them and give them lots of kisses. I love going on long drives in their SUV and going to the park. Soon after I turn 2 years old they welcome a pair of fraternal twins – a boy and a girl. Now my whole life revolves around the two babies.

So I lie down for the kiddies to play with me, lie next to me using my body as their favourite pillow and fetching things for them. I am so gentle that they can play with me in the backyard as the kiddies grow up and start walking and still I their favourite playmate. I am like a 3rd parent. That’s what I am.

“If I ran the world…”

“If I ran the world…”

I make it a rule that food has got to reach the poor and hungry. We have enough resources to do that. Spend more of the budget on creating enough food for everyone. Throw money at scientists coming up with nutritious solutions for feeding the masses.

Housing – the homeless and really poor need places to stay. Banish the rich palatial churches, temples and churches and make them into housing for the poor. Imagine a church or mosque now becoming housing like apartments for families. I cannot think of better using that space. And speaking of religion, I wouldn’t band religion (you can’t do that) but I’d make it like raising money and it’s power will be illegal. Basically reduce it to that of a small hobby that cannot make money. I will confiscate the money that these religious institutions have enjoyed tax free till now, and use it to get clothing, housing, medicine, food and comfort for the poor.

Make alternative fuel sources easier to make, make police and armies more for protection and the money that is now spent on weapons and secret agencies will go to – you guessed it. Clothing, housing, medicine, food and comfort for the poor. Also I’d create more jobs around helping the poor and the needy, including cats and dogs and other animals and make it worth the while of those who are doing those jobs.

What else? Murderers, rapists, abusers will find it very difficult to get out jail once convicted. I dunno what else I would enforce.

Why Use An Aftershave?

Aftershave is any kind of liquid, oil, gel, or other substance meant to be put on your body after you shave. Using aftershave is a ritual for many people. For the most part, there’s no harm in putting aftershave on to disinfect or soothe your skin.

Aftershave is used for exactly what the name says — to treat your skin after you’ve shaved. The benefits of aftershave depend on exactly what’s in it. But traditional alcohol-based astringent aftershave has acted like a sanitizer for the face after shaving facial hair. Here’s why: when you shave, you often leave behind many tiny cuts and exposed bits of epidermis (skin) and pores that are more likely to get bacteria or other material lodged inside. Typical aftershave contains ingredients known as isopropyl alcohol (isopropanol) or ethyl alcohol that are similar to what’s used in hand sanitizer or household cleaners like rubbing alcohol.

These ingredients kill bacteria or toxins on your face after a shave. This is why alcohol-based aftershave infamously stings when you put it on your face — it’s antibacterial. More natural aftershaves, such as jojoba oil or coconut oil; as well as moisturizers like lotion or aloe vera, can still help protect the skin from bacteria getting into cuts while also retaining skin moisture.

Other health benefits of aftershaves that use natural ingredients include:

  • reducing itching and swelling from skin damage and ingrown hairs
  • closing pores to prevent bacteria, dirt, or chemicals from getting in, (which can reduce breakouts, razor burn, or razor bumps)
  • helping cuts from shaving heal quicker
  • preventing hair follicle inflammation (folliculitis) by protecting opened pores with a layer of liquid or oil
  • promoting the regrowth of skin tissue to protect your skin health
  • adding a pleasant smell to your skin

Manscaping: Tips For Shaving

Manscaping is defined as the the removal of unwanted body hair (other than scalp hair) by waxing, shaving, etc. And it is mainly referred, even if it isn’t restricted to, shaving of the pubic hair. From the rather crude methods of using a razor to shave off your pubes – which is what I normally did till recently – while in the shower or even while lying in bed. That’s what I used to do; spread some newspapers on my bed and lying on them and then shave my pubic area.

Ofcourse now you have so many more options with body trimmers and even brands that are dedicated to creating trimmers with different heads and oils & deodrants just for your balls. Since shaving is the most common method for men to trim down there, here are some tips:

Shaving tips

  • Always disinfect your razor before use.
  • Dampen your pubes to soften the hairs and make them easier to cut.
  • Use shaving cream, gel, or moisturizer with natural ingredients to prevent irritation. Look for some brands that are commonly recommended.
  • Shave with gentle, light strokes. The harder you push when you shave, the more likely your shave will result in irritation and razor bumps.
  • Pull Your Skin Taut. Create an even surface by pulling your groin skin taut with one hand and guiding your razor with the other.
  • Use cortisone cream to minimize post-shave irritation.
  • Don’t get cream or gel near your penis.
  • Replace your blades often.

What To Do On A First Date?

So are you going on a first date and not sure of what to do or get for the young lady in question? With limited dating experience but a whole lot of research and ideas, I can offer just the few tips.

Show up on time : if you are like me and usually nervous on these first dates, that means you get confused as to the time and are either too early or too late. Calm down and be punctual. Leave early enough so you are not in a rush and arrive say 5-10 minutes before the agreed upon time.

Choose your outfit wisely : I would suggest that you wear something comfortable but not too casual unless that’s the kind of place that you are meeting her. A nice pair of jeans with a formal shirt isn’t a bad look. And it makes it easy for you relax in if it a comfortable fit and not too tight.

Shave, shower, shampoo : I shouldn’t even have to say this. But yeah, a fresh shaven look with the hair washed and shampooed. Also wear the right amount of deodorant and aftershave lotion.

Have a plan for the date : Meet up for coffee first, maybe a little light shopping in the mall while you stroll around and then going for lunch and or a movie at the end. That sounds like a really good plan to me.

Be a gentleman : Show her that you were raised with manners. Open doors for her, help her to her seat – simple things.

Gift : Give her something simple yet pretty as a gift. You don’t want to give her an expensive item on the first date but something simple is nice. Maybe even a small box of chocolates for her to take home and enjoy post the date so she can keep having the sweet taste and smile while reflecting on the day with you. That’s what I would do.

Oven Repair & Maintenance

Why did my oven stop working?

An oven that won’t heat is usually the result of a faulty igniter (for a gas oven) or heating element (for an electric oven). If both your gas oven and your gas burners have stopped working, the problem is most likely with the gas line, and will require professional oven repair.

But what about oven maintenance? Can you do something to make sure you part is done? Yes you can.

10 Oven Maintenance Tips to Take Care of Your Oven

  • Make Use of Your Oven’s Self-Cleaning Feature.
  • Clean Your Oven Regularly.

  • Inspect and Replace Your Gas Line.
  • Always Unplug Your Oven When You Clean.
  • Check Your Element (Burners) Regularly.
  • Take Care When Baking.
  • Don’t Forget to Clean Your Racks.

Clean your oven regularly. According to Kimberly Mazzone, owner of highly rated Kimberly’s Kleaning in Las Vegas, you should make an effort to clean your oven at least twice a year. If you use your stove every day, it will need to be cleaned more often.

How do you clean an oven quickly?

Step 1: Run a damp rag over the greasy area. Step 2: Pour baking soda and let it sit for 5 minutes. Step 3: Clean it with water using a damp, clean cloth. Step 4: Use dry cloth to wipe excess water or air dry.

Cleaning Your Stove

If your stove is at more than half of its typical lifespan years, and if the repair costs are more than 50% of buying a new appliance, then it’s time to replace. If not you should look at good stove repair services near you to fix the appliance.

However you should also make sure to clean your stove regularly and make sure that any maintenance you can do yourself is done.

How to clean a stove top?

Use a sponge and warm, soapy water or a stove top cleaner paste made from baking soda and warm water, as in step one, to remove any remaining grunge. The paste can also be used to clean the grates and reflector pans. Use a plastic spatula or plastic knife to scrape away dried or baked-on foods on the stove top.

How do you get burnt on grease off a stove top?

Use three parts baking soda and one part water. To polish your stove and gather excess dirt, wipe it with a towel dipped in vinegar. If you’re like me, you’ve probably boiled food over while cooking and watch helplessly as it covers your stove.

How do you clean burnt grease?

Sprinkle the bottom of the pan with generous amounts of baking soda and sea salt, especially on the stains. Spray the baking soda with straight vinegar. Allow it to sit for 5 minutes. Use the scouring pad to scrub away the grease.

What is Car Detailing?

Professional car detailing is the art and the craft of cleaning and restoring a vehicle to like-new condition. Car detailing services are much more precise and labor-intensive than getting a car wash. A car wash is normally an automated system that a car passes through to clean the exterior. Professional auto detailing is always done by hand, and includes exterior and interior car detailing services.

Exterior car detailing can include

  • Exterior wash and dry – This washing and drying process is done by hand. The detailer will spray and wipe down the body of the car with specialized products. This includes hand washing the rims, door handles, and glass.
  • Paint Claying – A clay bar is used to remove any contaminants, overspray, or residue left after the car has been washed. Claying results in a cleaner and smoother surface, and helps increase the effectiveness of polish and wax.
  • Polishing – Polishing buffs an abrasive compound onto the car’s paint to remove small layers of clear coat. This makes small scratches and swirls in the paint disappear.
  • Sealing or Waxing – To give the car a glossy shine and to add a protective layer to the car’s paint, a sealant is applied. In some cases, wax can be used.

Tyre Rims Repair

Can you fix a damaged rim?

Upon the discovery that your rim is bent, you might first wonder, “Can a bent rim be fixed?” Almost always, a professional tire expert who offers rim repair will be able to restore the shape of your rim. For more serious damages, the rim may need to be replaced entirely.

The Four Main Types Of Rims

Understanding the type of rim you have is important if you’re going to estimate the cost of repairing any curb damage.

  • Steel wheel rim. Steel is durable and can withstand a lot of damage. If you have steel rims that are bent, try taking them to a professional for repair. Usually, they can be fixed.
  • Chrome-plated wheel rim. Curb damaged chrome wheels may require sandblasting and re-plating, which is generally quite expensive. Often times, it’s more cost-effective to buy a replacement chrome rim.
  • Aluminum alloy wheel rim. Produced from an alloy of aluminum, these rims are commonly offered on new vehicles. They are usually painted, and often have clear coat as well. If they’re bent, it is often difficult to fix them safely. If they’ve been scratched or scuffed up, they can be sanded and repainted.
  • Plastic-clad wheel rims. Plastic cladding often looks like chrome, but it’s much lighter (and cheaper) for the manufacturer. Unfortunately, it’s typically not possible to repair plastic that’s been damaged. Instead, you can either replace the entire wheel, or try to remove and replace the plastic cladding (which isn’t always possible).

Can I Still Drive If I Have a Bent Rim? It is  never recommended to drive on a bent rim as this can lead to further damage to the wheel, tire, & steering. Bents rims will usually have a hard time maintaining a proper seal with the tire, this will lead to a loss in air pressure.

Demand For Locksmiths

Is there a demand for locksmiths?

As the industry continues to evolve with technology, the demand for locksmithing skills will increase. Whether you’re interested in working for yourself, for a commercial locksmith, or as an in-house security technician, there are multiple career paths that await you. People are looking for a locksmith Markham and in other cities and towns, so let’s look at 3 big reasons why you need to call a locksmith:

Accidentally Getting Locked Out

One of the most common reasons why you would need an emergency locksmith is when you’ve been locked out of your home. You might rush out to grab the newspaper or check mail, go outside to garden or mow, or talk with your neighbors. Without bringing your keys, the door closes behind you and a lock engages. Or your child might lock the door when you step outside, and might not be able to open it. Once you are locked out of your home, you may not have another option but to call a locksmith.

Damaged Locks

Just like keys, door locks are prone to wear and tear. After some time, they will wear out and then fail to work properly. Also, someone might damage them while trying to gain access to your home or business premises. When this happens, you will be taking more time and effort, trying to open the lock. And in some instances, they might fail to unlock completely, leaving you locked out of your own house, car or business. Whether someone has damaged your locks trying to gain access to your property, or they are completely worn out due to wear and tear, a locksmith can help you with the problem.

Broken Keys

Due to metal fatigue and regular use, your keys will eventually undergo wear and tear. If the key breaks off inside the lock, then it can be very difficult to remove it. When you encounter such an unfortunate scenario, you should call a locksmith in your area. A residential locksmith will work on the lock, and then help you access your premises. After that, they can then re-key the lock, cut a new key or even replace the lock, if it’s necessary.

Renting A Dumpster

You call the dumpster rental company and make arrangements to have a dumpster delivered to a specific address at an agreed time. A delivery person drives your dumpster over to drop it off as arranged. You then proceed to fill the dumpster with junk and debris from your home, office, storage unit, or worksite.

Here are 5 things you to do before you rent a dumpster :

  • Preparation for the Dumpster’s Placement. Depending on the size of the dumpster that you rent, you are going to need to find a place to house it.
  • Shop Around and Compare Options.
  • Choose Your Container Wisely.
  • Know What you can Dispose of and What you Can’t.
  • Plan Ahead.

Dumpster rental costs $381 on average, or between $292 and $482. Most companies charge $200 to $800 per week depending on the dumpster’s size. Long-term rentals cost $1,000 to $3,000 for a month or more. Most reputable dumpster rental companies will allow you to keep the bin for around 5 to 7 days, giving you plenty of time to fill it. The truth of the matter is that the average stay of a dumpster in a driveway is about three and a half days.

What Do You Need To Run A Business?

When it comes to running a business, you may find that you need to approach it in the right way. It’s really not all that easy to think about all of the elements that businesses require when you’re new. You’ll find that, even as you get things set up and running well, you may miss a couple of things that will actually help your business in the long run. But this will come in time. It really doesn’t have to be something that you find difficult. However, it is nice to have a bit of a helping hand.

It’s always good to know that you’re setting things up correctly from the start. This may be something that you can do by having the right information. So this is what we want to focus on bringing you today in this post.

A Plan

First of all, you need to have a plan. Even if you know that you’ve got an idea that works or you feel like you know what you’re doing, you’ll find that it’s actually a good idea for you to think about things properly. So write a full business plan that covers how you will market your company, how you will grow it, and the different areas you need to focus on to run efficiently. As a business owner, this will hold you accountable.

Good Products Or Services

But that’s not often enough. You may find that you then need to be able to offer a really strong product or service too. It’s important to make sure that you can make it as competitive as possible. Ideally you want to have an edge over competitors and really stand out.

A Strong Setup

You also need to be sure that you have a good setup to create your products or offer your service. So do your research here and invest in what you need. Whether that’s conveyor belt systems or a complex online ordering system. Having the essential processes in place will mean you can operate well from the start.

Reliable Staff

From here, if you’re hiring staff, you then also want to be sure that you can hire people that are going to really benefit your business. It could be that you want to find people to help you grow your business or take tasks off of your hands so you can focus on other things. So be sure to choose the right people.


Finally, you may find that you actually have to be able to make a profit too. Now, this is obviously something that we all dream of doing – but it’s not always that easy to do. Depending on the industry that you’re in or what work you have, you may take a while to breakeven first before you even start to make a profit. But as long as you have this forecast and you know how you can do it, you’ll find that running your business is a success.
