Whether you are recently out of a relationship, or getting back into dating after staying away from it for a long time, it will never be easy to put yourself back out there in the field. Dating requires a lot of time and effort, so it is really an investment you have to maintain and watch very closely. Here are some practical dating advice for ladies out there who are on the hunt for their perfect soul mate.
Relax. Don't stress yourself out too much if you haven't found the right partner. Avoid regretting things about your past relationships, and worrying about your future love life. If it is not meant to be, then it's not worth stressing about it. Have a carefree attitude when it comes to dating. Let the guys get stressed out for a change. *wink*
# 2 - Don't lose your identity
Don't drop your entire life to be with a guy, even if you think he's "the one". It's never a good thing for you or your new relationship if you haven't maintained your own identity. Keeping your own identity, passions, and other friendships make a relationship balanced, and make you more desirable to your lover's eyes.
# 3 - Woman's Instinct
Intuition is any woman's best weapon; don't you ever, ever ignore it. If your gut feeling tells you that there's something wrong, consider the possibility that it might be right. Keep your eyes and ears open, and listen to what your inner self tells you.
# 4 - Learning to Accept Things
Not everything about our partners is something that can easily be accepted. It may be as simple as snoring, or as complicated as his lack of motivation in life. The truth is, it is difficult to influence their behaviour, or change them to how we want him to be. It is also something that doesn't happen right away. So you have to learn to accept your partner's habits or traits even if it annoys you sometimes. Especially if you are planning to stay with them for a long time.
# 5 - Afraid of Being Alone
A lot of women are afraid to be alone, so they tend to jump from one relationship to another. It is never a good idea to do this. Be comfortable with the thought that maybe it is not the right time to be with someone yet, and be happy to be single and on your own. You have to appreciate your "alone" time before embarking into a new relationship.
# 6 - Don't Be Assumptive All the Time
Even if you are dating with a guy for about 6 months, don't be assumptive. Dating for around 6 months does not mean that you are exclusive. That's not necessarily true, especially these days. Clarify your status with your guy, and don't be scared to let him know what you want out of this relationship.
# 7 - Get Out of Your Comfort Zone
There's nothing wrong in trying new things. If your date wants to go biking or hiking with you, embody the "Why not!" attitude, instead of thinking negatively. It means that you are not afraid of doing things you don't usually do and you should not be afraid to take risks, especially in relationships. Some guys appreciate it more if they see a woman who is not afraid to experience new things that are out of their comfort zone.
# 8 - Don't Settle for Less
Trust me; you will end up a lot happier being single, rather than being committed to the wrong person. Don't stress yourself in looking for Mr. Right, especially if you are 35 and above. Great things happen to those who hold out and wait for the right person for you.
# 9 - Learn From Your Mistakes
Look back into your past relationships, and see if there is a pattern. Know the reasons why the last relationship didn't work. The more we understand the mistakes we have done in the past, the better we can move forward in the future.
Are you ready to put yourself out there in the dating scene again? Just remember these simple dating advice and you'll be surely having love knocking on your door again soon.

* Perennial Real Estate plans China, Singapore mall funds
* Just closed 1.2 bln yuan China mall fund
* Headed by CapitaLand Retail's former CEO Pua (Adds more comments from interview, fund manager's comment)
By Kevin Lim
SINGAPORE, April 5 (Reuters) - Perennial Real Estate, a firm set up by the former head of CapitaLand's (CATL.SI) shopping mall business, plans to launch property funds that will buy malls in China and Singapore to tap the region's growing consumer demand.
Pua Seck Guan, who left CapitaLand in 2008, is making a comeback in the property fund management scene, drawing on his experience in helping build the Singapore developer's regional shopping mall business and floating off assets via real estate investment trusts (REITs).
Perennial just closed a 1.2 billion yuan ($176 million) Chinese shopping mall fund aimed at Chinese investors and it has started pre-marketing a similar fund aimed at international investors. Beijing Hualian Group, a large Chinese retailer, is a cornerstone investor in the yuan-denominated fund, he said.
"Particularly in China, there is a huge amount of opportunity. There is no shortage in the pipeline (and) we can still buy malls at good valuations," Pua, who is Perennial's CEO, told Reuters in an interview.
He downplayed risks of a bubble in Chinese retail property, noting it was possible to acquire malls in Beijing for 12,000 to 13,000 yuan per square metre compared with prices of around 20,000 yuan/sq m for residences outside the city centre.
China's retail sales were also growing at a clip of over 15 percent per annum, he added. [ID:nTOE628095]
Michael Kerley, a fund manager at Henderson Global Investors, said concerns about property price bubbles in China were overstated, noting the country's high savings rates, rural-to-urban migration and strong GDP growth.
"If property prices go up by 20 percent in London, that's a multiple of 5 times GDP. When they go up by 20 percent in China, it is only a 1.5 times multiple of GDP," Kerley said.
Similar to CapitaLand and other developers that have diversified into fund management, Perennial is directly involved in the design and management of the malls. In China alone, the firm employs about 450 people directly or through its partners.
"You need a platform to demonstrate you know the local market... We have anchor tenants who will follow us so we know what kind of rentals we can achieve. We are not the kind of fund manager who pluck numbers from the air," Pua said.
Chinese malls that the Perennial funds invest in will be divested to Shenzhen-listed Beijing Hualian Department Store 000882.SZ once the malls develop a track record and are able to deliver steady rental returns.
The Shenzhen firm, which now owns 24 malls, is in the process of being renamed to reflect its status as a REIT-like vehicle for investors seeking fairly high, predictable dividends with the possibility of capital appreciation if property prices increase.
Beijing Hualian Group is an anchor tenant at several China malls owned or managed by CapitaMalls Asia CMAL.SI, which was spun off by CapitaLand last year in a $2 billion initial public offering.
As for Singapore, Pua said Perennial hoped to raise a S$300 million ($214.7 million) to S$400 million fund that will invest in underperforming malls as well as develop new projects.
The firm has already led one investment, paying S$248 million for Katong Mall in one of Singapore's wealthy eastern suburbs. Food retailer Breadtalk (BRET.SI), which will be taking space at the mall after it is refurbished, was an investor in Katong Mall.
Pua, who is widely credited with building CapitaLand's malls business, resigned from Southeast Asia's biggest developer in September 2008, sparking a 7 percent fall in the firm's share price amid already uncertain market conditions which caused Singapore's benchmark index to fall 3.5 percent.
He is a civil engineer by training and holds a masters degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Besides China and Singapore, Singapore-based Perennial, whose management includes several former CapitaLand executives, is also active in India where it advises property giant DLF (DLF.BO) on the retail business. ($1=6.824 Yuan) ($1=1.397 Singapore Dollar) (Editing by Muralikumar Anantharaman)
Before we get into the nuts and bolts of PUA text game, let's talk about the top 3 reasons why it's so powerful and how it can get you laid like crazy.
Reason Why Every PUA Should Master Text Game #1: Texting Is "Under The Radar"
One of the biggest reason why texting a girl is such a quick and effective way to get girls to like you is that texting is very "under the radar."
By that I mean, women are a lot more comfortable with texting because they see it as "impersonal", "low intimacy", and "safe". They are a lot more willing to text and flirt back and forth with a guy they just met (even if the messages are very sexual) as opposed to talking over the phone or face-to-face.
As a result, women will allow themselves to drop their shields and just "have fun." They'll be willing to talk about things that they wouldn't talk about in a phone conversation and share naughty secrets that they wouldn't otherwise.
The impersonal nature of text flirting, allow women to explore fantasies and turn on that they might otherwise feel guilty or embarrass to talk about.
In a way, it allow them to escape the sexual restrictions that society place on them. This "fantasy escape" scenario is a HUGE turn on for women. And guess who will be right there to take full benefit of it?
Reason Why Every PUA Should Master Text Game #2: Women Are Turned On By Words
Another huge reason why text seduction is so effective is so powerful is because...get ready for this...words turn women on!
Don't believe me? Just walk into your local book store or grocery store and see how many romance novels are on the shelves. Notice they're not porno movies for women, or erotic pictures for women. No, they're romance novels for women. As in books filled with freakin' words!
In fact, romance novels the biggest selling book category of all time. Why do you think that is?
See it's hard for a guy to understand this because we are so visual. We are turned on by sexy images (girls in bikinis, pornography, etc.), but women are turned on by mental stimulus (i.e. words that stir up their emotions and imaginations.)
And this is where "text game PUA" (PUA stands for Pick Up Artists) like us have a huge advantage. By knowing what to text a girl and just what words and phrases turn her on, we can quickly and easily build comfort and sexual tension.
Don't worry, in my other articles, we will go into exactly what to text to a girl you like to drive a crazy and make her beg you to sleep with her.
Reason Why Every PUA Should Master Text Game #3: Texting Is The Way Of The Future
And finally, the third reason why PUA text game is so deadly is because texting is the preferred form of communication nowadays.
Yes, we are entering a new era of our culture where text messaging is the preferred method of communication, especially in the date area.
Think about it. Texting is quick and easy. It's convenient. A woman doesn't have to interrupt her day to answer a text message. She can do while at work or out with friends.
In fact, the idea of secretly playing the "sexual & naughty" text game with you while she's out and around other people is a secret turn on that most women have. That's something that you can use to your advantage. More on that in other articles.
And of course, as mentioned above, a woman are much more likely to engage in conversation with a man she just met via text, because it's so much more casual and safe.
In fact, texting is becoming so popular that I wouldn't be surprise that there comes a day when girls will ONLY talk to guys they just met using phone texts.
And that's why it's so important that you learn how to flirt with a girl over text. If you want to keep up with the rapidly changing time, you must learn things like: when to text a girl you just met, how often should you text her, and what to text her to really turn her on and make her want you.
But fear not. You have come the right place to learn everything you need to know about how to pick up girls using text.
What I'm going to talk about now was true about fifty years ago. The way things have changed since then, I'm not sure if the same things hold true now.
I have always been one to try to obtain what I wanted. When I was younger and single the main thing on my mind was the young ladies. Back then the man was the one who was expected to make the first moves toward a relationship of any kind. If a girl was to ask a boy for a date she would have been considered "fast" and definitely would not have been respected.
I have always known that personality means more than looks, but looks are the first thing that usually attracts the opposite sex. Of course, like all the boys, I wanted to meet and date the good looking girls. It is personality that makes the difference in how a relationship progresses.
One thing I came to realize not long after I started chasing the girls was that most boys had a lot of pride and did not like being turned down by the girls. They thought that all the boys would be after the good looking girls and their chance of getting dates with them would be slim and they would be turned down most of the time. Their fear of rejection kept them from approaching the better looking girls.
What this meant to me was there was less competition for the good looking girls. With fewer boys chasing them it was easier to get a date with them than with the average looking girls. I dated some beautiful girls with less competition.
One way that this has helped throughout my life is knowing that if you want something you should to after it. Your chance of succeeding might be better than you think.
