The Science Behind the Perfect Text Message

As we are writing this blog we couldn't help, but gasp how quickly the world has changed. A few years ago, it would have seemed preposterous to write an article about how to write the perfect text. Back then, people might have said, “Text?, Why would I send a text when I can call”. Nowadays though, the more relevant question seems to be, “Call?, why would I call if I can text”.  As times have changed, so has our way of communicating with a prospect we are interested in.

In the new book Modern Romance; author Aziz Ansari set to research the use of modern day technology and finding relationships. Aziz teamed up with Sociologist and Professor Erick Klinensberg, which conducted a large sum of focus groups, interviews, and experiments all over the world. This book gives great insights on the modern day society.

So let's say you end up with a number. Maybe you got it from a girl, after some small talk, as she drifted away. Or it was one of those good nights at a bar, where everything was running smoothly for you. It doesn't matter how you ended up with it, what you do next with this combination of numbers  can be the difference between a date or staying at home.

Below is a list containing key aspects to take into consideration when asking someone on a date over text:

1.Talk about something you two discussed before.
There is nothing more appealing to a woman than a man who paid attention to the conversation they had before. Specially if its a someone she just met. This, not only helps the conversation to get going, it also might help as a starting point when you meet once again.

2. Be assertive.
Many times throughout this blog, it is stressed that women love guys that are assertive. This doesn't mean to decide everything for women. When it comes to asking her on a date, telling her a specific day and place, might show her your confidence and will definitely uplift your chances for a yes.

3. Be funny
Women love guys that can make them have a good time, moreover it makes the whole ritual feel less awkward; but it is important not to force it. If you don't have anything you can joke about with her, it is better not try, leave it for when it feels natural.

4 Keep it Short

Once she has replied back, it is important not to drag the conversation. You don't want to smother her. Leave room for some mystery.

Try these pointers and let us know how it goes.

Happy Families

Nowadays families come in different sizes, with different beliefs, and ethnic backgrounds.  Modern society has reshaped the family stereotype, through the media and what not, and has shook up its foundations to what it is today.

Today, there exists families with two parents, a single parent, same-sex parents, adoptive children, step siblings, etc. Given the diversity of modern day families, we at The Perfect Male Blog decided to explore the most respected psychological papers and articles on families, in search for common ground in the concept of a well functioning, happy family. No matter what type of family one has.

There are noticeable differences between families which are happier to those which aren't.  Large or small, rich or poor, religious or liberal, families which are happy share many of the same characteristics. Happy families are generally healthy families and they don’t just happen by chance. The following are 7 essential aspects to a happy family

1 Communication

When researching  about happy people, communication is a rather ubiquitous and versatile trait. . Mastering this skill, will make you a better person in every aspect of your life.

Resentment, on the other hand, is one of the most crippling of emotions any relationship can have and resentment occurs when there is a lack of communication. Sharing one’s  thoughts, feelings, needs, and love for one another creates a sense of safety and security, which allows,a genuine environment within the household.

2 Focus on the Positive

Every single person has positive and negative traits, but one can choose where to place the most focus on. If a person only focuses on the negative of the people around them, then there is a good possibility he will see the world in a very bleak manner. If, on the contrary, the person focuses on the positive, there is a good chance that this will affect that person's perspective of the world in a positive manner.  Negative traits in people should be mentioned, but never should they be the focus of one's attention. Playing to the strengths of each other will make you an overall stronger family.

3 Respect

This trait refers to the esteem or sense of worth a person has for others. Without it, the environment in which it is found lacking, can turn into a rather somber place. It is crucial that families have an environment that promotes a sense of unconditional respect for one another. This allows people in a particular circle to see that they care for each other.

4 Focus on the Important Matters.

As a group of people that lives together, it is obvious that a times certain differences will arise between one another. Sometimes these differences are noninvasive and should be left untouched, while other definitely require to be addressed.
The important thing here is to think about where are one is going to invest one's energy. . If it's something that isn't going to matter after a short time, it's usually best just to let it slide, rather than to make a big issue out of it.

5 Empowerment

For a family to thrive, encouragement and nurture should be at its core. Not only by providing a safety net, but also by pushing each other to reach out to higher limits.

6 Let the Past Enrich the Future

Happy families are those who equally embrace their extended family. The older generations can provide great lessons for the lives of the young, and the young can help the elderly to remember how much hope and promise life still holds. Having interaction with one's extended family gives understanding and meaning of one's roots.

7 Have Fun Together

Family is not only about being able to coexist. Family is also about having fun as you all learn, discover and go through life together.

Go on vacation. Set time aside for a movie night. Show each other that life is not only about being serious and achieving things in life, but also about enjoying all together.
