You could work in real estate or choose a path in healing. If you work for others, there’s a chance for a promotion. You will see improvements in wealth. Feel free to invest.

6 Ways to Make Your Guy Love You Forever

Found this while roaming on the net. It’s interesting and full of useful information that every girl should embrace it as a good knowledge. You may be surprised at the things guys really can’t resist about women, and some of them are the very qualities women fear will drive men away-from letting a curse word loose to leaving all kinds of makeup near his bathroom sink. Here’s why these habits and others actually win a man over.

1. He loves that you indulge at dinnertime.

Guys love girls who love to eat-not girls who say they aren’t hungry and then pick at their date’s food all night. Paul, 30, who lives in Boston, thinks that food may be the reason he fell in love with his fiancé: When we first started dating, I thought it might be awkward if I wanted greasy food like wings-I figured she’d think it was fattening or unhealthy. Women I’d dated in the past only wanted to go out for salad or sushi. But she was enthusiastic about eating all kinds of things with me. I loved that easygoing attitude of hers. Aside from showing that you’re not high-maintenance or neurotic about your weight, that kind of unabashed enthusiasm also tends to translate into other areas-including the bedroom. A woman with a healthy appetite for food tends to have a healthy appetite on all levels, and sex is absolutely a part of that, explains Barton Goldsmith, Ph.D., author of Emotional Fitness for Couples: 10 Minutes a Day to a Better Relationship.

2. He loves your occasional obscenities.

You may worry that it’s not ladylike, but occasionally letting a curse escape your lips at an unexpected moment can be a major turn-on. Hearing a woman use profanity out of context gives a guy a shock of sexual adrenaline, explains Ian Kerner, Ph.D., author of She Comes First: The Thinking Man’s Guide to Pleasuring a Woman and co-host of Discovery Health’s Love on the Rocks. Men like women who can be tough and assertive, and as long as she doesn’t take the talk too far, it’s a positive thing.

3. He loves that you aren’t a neat freak.

Believe it or not, guys find the proliferation of hair products, accessories and unidentified stuff strewn about your apartment oddly sexy. I love that my wife makes a bigger mess than I do, says Ziad, 31, of Durham, NC. When she cooks, food ends up all over the place. It shows that she’s carefree, and it reminds me to enjoy the moment rather than worrying about the consequences. This laid-back mind-set also carries over into your weekend wardrobe. Guys love a woman who’s not trying too hard, explains Dr. Kerner. Most men think a pair of boxer shorts and a ratty old T-shirt around the house is your sexiest look. So don’t spend hours choosing the perfect date-night outfit or getting your place in House Beautiful-shape, because men love you just as you are-in your comfortable, slightly sloppy glory.

4. He loves your extra padding.

Sure, you’ve heard that men love women with curves, but how about those extra pounds you’ve been trying to sweat off at the gym? There’s a good chance that your guy loves them, too. Just ask 26-year-old Nick: My girlfriend exercises regularly, but I think the little pudginess in her thighs is sexy because it shows she’s not perfect. Sure, your extra padding may make men feel a little better about their own beer bellies, but there’s also a biological reason why men like this. Psychologists at the University of TX determined that men were most attracted to women with hourglass figures – specifically, women whose waists were 60 to 80 percent smaller than their hips – regardless of their weight. They theorize that men unconsciously seek this body type because it signals that a woman is able to procreate.

5. He’s fascinated by your knowledge of medieval tapestries.

Or whatever it is that gets you all hot and bothered-whether or not he shares the same interests. It’s not about knowing facts-it’s about being passionate about something, says romance columnist Mira Kirshenbaum, author of The Weekend Marriage. These are things that are important to her, not just stuff meant to impress a guy. This can be passion for a subject as seemingly obscure as agricultural practices of the Mayans or as popular as Spanish as a second language. He may not quite get it and he may not want to have all-night discussions about it, but he definitely appreciates the fact that you’re a smart, interesting woman who thinks for herself and doesn’t mold her interests to match those of her man. Your interests also fuel what Kerner calls the process of self-expansion. The more you expand as a person, he explains, the more the relationship expands.

6. He loves a good head rub from you.

Don’t get me wrong-men love it when you grope their erogenous zones. But that’s not the only type of touch they crave. Adam, 28, of Roanoke, VA, confesses: I love how my wife rubs my head at night. Sweet, yes, but it also feels oh-so-good: Home to hundreds of nerve endings, the scalp is an often-neglected zone. And light touches anywhere can achieve a similar effect, since they cause his body to produce vasopressin, a feel-good relaxation hormone that also promotes bonding. Another positive side effect? Initiating any kind of physical contact sends your man the message that you want him just as much as he wants you-and that you truly care about him.
