Früher war alles besser. Der Sex sowieso. Von der Liebe ganz zu schweigen ... Nein, Quatsch! Es verändert sich nur alles. Auch der Sex und die Liebe sind weniger ewig und ´´natürlich´´, als man es vielleicht gern hätte. Und sie müssen sich in der Zeit von Internet und sozialen Netzwerken gegenüber der alten analogen Kultur und ihrer Ordnung von Öffentlichkeit und Privatsphäre verändern, und zwar drastisch. Da wird manches leichter, in jedem Sinne des Wortes. Und manches verliert seinen romantischen Charme. Das Internet-Dating ist eine zeitgemäße Form für zumindest die ersten Kapitel einer Liebesgeschichte und natürlich auch ein ideales Forum für die kurzfristigen sexuellen Beziehungen, die man sich ´´One Night Stands´´ zu nennen angewöhnt hat. Aber dieses Internet hat ein paar Eigenschaften, die uns mit ein wenig Verspätung unheimlich geworden sind. Allfällige Überwachungen, Datenklau, Maskeraden und Fallen, Cyber-Stalking, Shitstorms, Zwangsexhibitionismus, Abzocke ... Paranoia! Daher gibt es eine Schnittstelle zwischen der Verheißung auf schnelle und direkte Herstellung sexueller, sozialer oder sogar ´´tieferer´´ Beziehungen auf der einen, der Paranoia von Kontrollsucht, Misstrauen und Überwachungsfetischismus auf der anderen Seite. Und es tummeln sich in dieser Zone nicht bloß Wichtigtuer und Geschäftemacher, sondern auch ausgesprochen dubiose Ideologien und neben komischen und seltsamen auch bösartige und gefährliche Fantasien. Immer ist die Liebe in Gefahr, und in den Netzen vielleicht von einer besonderen Form der Vergiftung bedroht. Was an dieser Schnittstelle zwischen Lust und Paranoia so alles geschieht, davon handelt dieses kleine Buch.

We live in a time when many are frustrated with dating. The odds of meeting that person to share our life with are slim-to-none, and many are now taking on a mindset that we will never find ´´the one´´. We change our focus from the dreams we had as children, of living happily ever after, so we introduce self-imposed thoughts, limitations, and standards, thinking that this change will help weed out the good from the bad. Not realizing we have narrowed our selection of available men and women, many singles do not understand or have a clue that a relationship is built and developed on more than income, attraction, and standards. It has a foundation of spiritual understanding that becomes a beautiful work of art in which everybody will not appreciate the painting that you and your future mate represent. But it´s only designed to be beautiful in the eyes of those who understand the beauty of the strokes, patterns, and color combination, and to those who speak the language of what the painting represents. 1.

Five sex-free dates. How hard can it be? When they were at uni, Owen always had a bit of a crush on Nathan. But Nathan was apparently straight, and Owen was too busy with other guys to take his crush seriously. When Nathan moves back to Bristol after a year away, Owen hears that Nathan has come out of the closet, and he propositions him. Nathan doesn´t want to be just another notch on Owen´s bedpost, though, so he challenges Owen to prove he can be serious: five dates before they have sex. Owen doesn´t think that sounds too difficult. He´s expecting Nathan to find his charms irresistible anyway. But as they grow closer, Owen begins to care more about proving himself to Nathan than he does about getting him into bed. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Matthew Lloyd Davies.

When it comes to successful dating, whether you are a man or a woman, the number one thing you need to have is confidence. Confidence is something that can be garnered with careful and correct guidance and input. One of the ways to appear confident is to be as well versed as possible, on a few topics where one´s intellect can be clearly displayed within the confines of those topics. Injecting relevant comments periodically into the conversation can effectively portray the confidence levels of the person if the comments are carefully selected for its interesting and informative style. Besides the ability to converse well and on a variety of carefully selected topics, dressing well will also help to portray a suitable and impressive level of confidence in the individual. 1.
