How Long is Too Long To Date?
A former coworker of mine just got engaged after living with and dating her now-fiance for SIX YEARS. While I think that's practically a common-law marriage, some people think that dating that long is necessary to make sure you're ready to commit to a life together. But here's the thing: Only you can know when you're ready to take the next step. But as a baseline, Ian Kerner, PhD, LMFT, licensed psychotherapist, couple's therapist and author of She Comes First, suggests that one to two years is often a good amount of time to date before getting engaged. Longer than that and you might just never get married or take your relationship more seriously and after ten or so years your relationship starts to break and you don't feel obligated to fix it. ONE TO TWO YEARS?! That sound like no time at all for me! But wait, its not necessarily about time! "I've worked with a lot of couples who have strong relationships, and they met and fell in love quickly and really got to know each other's friends and family," Kerner says. "They got to experience what it's like to live with each other or spend a lot of time with each other, go through some life cycle issues, like the loss of a family member or the loss of a friendship, or going to a wedding or funeral and really getting to see each other in a lot of different contexts and feel like it's a good match. And generally, that can happen in a year... You want to have some problems emerge and see how you deal with problems together. For me, it's more about the range of experiences that lend themselves to compatibility rather than the amount of time." My parents dated about 3.5 years (I think???) before getting engaged, then waited about 4 years after marriage to have me! But then again, they only saw each other on weekends because my mom lived in New Jersey and my dad lived in California so I guess at the end of the day they were physically together for about a year and a half haha! For me, I've been with my boyfriend for a little over a year but no WAY am I thinking about marriage so I don't think the 1-2 year rule applies to me. Do you think there is a cut-off point for dating, when you should tie the knot?

Let's find out if they really are what they claim to be. Quick Review (On a scale of 5 stars) Website Design - 4.5/5 Services - 5/5 Ordering Process - 5/5  Customer Service 5/5 Prices and Discount 4/5  Content Quality 5/5 Customer Reviews 4/5  Conclusion 4.5/5 Website Design MyPerfectWords website design is clean and crisp, something that is hard to find if you are someone who is always looking for online custom essay writing help. Instead of cramming the entire website with, especially the homepage, with content, they have sectioned them and added reasonable spaces between them. The colors are nicely balanced with negative space and the entire site is easy to scan and browse. The transition time between the pages is hardily 2 to 3 seconds, which is pretty quick. However, I find the HUGE list of categories down in the footer a bit overwhelming, i hope they could come up with some clever ideas about them. Services They offer an extensive plethora of services. The range is quite impressive and it is great to see that you will not have to run anywhere else to get your work edited and proofread. They do it all. Besides, they offer a number of benefits. They have detailed the reasons that any student should work with them that includes ‘premium quality content, 100% privacy, unlimited revisions, on time delivery, friendly customer support and order tracking’. To know more, I placed the order on their website. Ordering Process The ordering process is simple. You do not have to fill in loads and loads of information. It has only 3 steps and you can place the order under 15 minutes, which is a great relief. Usually, the companies send a big and detailed questionnaire to fill but, MyPerfectWords has a swift and concise process. Customer Service Once I placed the order, one of the customer representatives contacted me himself, good to know someone does care about us. The person that I communicated with was polite and quite knowledgeable about all the services and he knows how to answer the questions. Talking about questions, the site has an inclusive FAQs section that answers nearly all of the questions and concerns. To help you further, they have some free writing samples that you can view and see how they work. I found them right on top and it is good that I did not have to fish through the entire site to see if they got any work samples. Prices and Discounts Considering what I have found out about the prices other companies are offering, I found MyPerfectWords. a bit in the pricier side. A high school paper price per page is $15, after the 50% discount which is more than what I found on other websites. It is justified or not, I am yet to find out. Content Quality Before going on with how my paper was written, I would like to add that my paper was delivered within the deadline that I had given, no late submissions. Getting to the content quality, my paper was good and I am generally satisfied with the quality. The references were all from credible sources, no Wikipedia, and it was well arranged and structured. I can tell by the look of it that it was written by a Native speaker, which is just what they claim. Absolutely worth the time and their cost. Customer Reviews The company has mixed reviews, which is something that nearly all companies have. People like me would say that their experience was great while there would be some who may not find their experience worthwhile. Whatever it is, instead of listening to anyone, I believe that you should place an order with them and see how it works for you. And from the other site, Conclusion On the whole, my experience was positive and satisfying. Though I do find that the prices are a bit higher than what other companies charge, the results are good and even though they justify their price with quality, I hope that they review them.

MV Analysis/Theory: BTS and Nietzsche
"One must still have chaos within oneself, to give birth to a dancing star." - Thus Spoke Zarathustra: A Book for All and None, by Friedrich Nietzsche. (wiki on the book here) 1. For Whom You Shine The book begins with the quote: "You great star, what would your happiness be had you not those for whom you shine?" This clearly plays into the song lyrics, that they are nothing without the person they love. They offer their blood, sweat and tears to them, without this person to shine for, they are empty. 2. The Most Beautiful Moment in Life Nietzsche's writing often refers to the idea of eternal recurrence. This is the idea that all events in one's life will happen again and again, infinitely. "The embrace of all of life's horrors and pleasures alike shows a deference and acceptance of fate, or Amor Fati. The love and acceptance of one's path in life is a defining characteristic of the overman*. *Overman - Nietzsche thinks that it is important for every generation to overcome their humanity. To be better than it, to push forward and grow and defy the boundaries set by the mere fact that we're human. Someone who creates something new is an overman. Is Jin repeating his actions over and over again but changing it slightly each time? Are we witnessing the butterfly effect? (For example we see Jungkook on the bike again, the lilies from I Need U, etc) Will the most beautiful moment in life go on forever, and is it turning into a nightmare?
The Person You Really Need to Marry
Tracy McMillan has written for a ton of the top TV shows and is most interested in human relationships. In her TED Talk (viewed more than 3 million times) she touches on how we find the person we REALLY need to marry. She starts off by telling us about how she thought of love when she was a child, citing the popular nursery rhyme. *k-i-s-s-i-n-g* But her life totally didn't end up like that. She's been married and divorced three times, and she says its because she consistently married the wrong guy for her. She says her husbands were awesome guys, but they just weren't the people she should be marrying. She brings up her philosophy of "marrying yourself." Here's what she means. In marrying yourself, you need to commit fully to yourself, Focus on you, and understanding you. Once you realize that you're whole and can stand all by yourself you'll see that you don't need any man or woman to complete you. She believes that so many marriages fail because the partners believe that they are lacking, and they're looking for someone to fill that gap. She goes deep into her love life (which is wild!) to show how she had to overcome all of the mistakes she made to get to where she is now. One thing she found from this practice that hit me pretty hard was that once loving herself, and she went on a few dates... She found that instead of wondering if the man liked HER, she was focusing on how SHE felt in his presence. She's listening to herself and her needs, not trying to prove anything to anybody. "I'm more interested in how I feel about me, than how he feels about me." What do you think about this philosophy? Would it work for you?
