Ladies: Things Men Do When They Are Interested In You

When to Look for Signs of Interest

There are three key times when you want to assess a man’s interest:

1) Before you meet him. As I discuss in It’s Not Him, It’s YOU, initiating is important if you want to get dates. Often, you’ll need to break the ice so a man doesn’t feel like he’s hitting on an uninterested woman. You’ll find this much less intimidating if you learn to recognize the signs of interest.

2) After you meet him. If you meet a guy and actually get to talk to him, you can look for another set of signs here to assess whether you’re likely to get a date or if you’re wasting your time.

3) Once you start dating. Once you’ve gone out with a guy, whether it’s one date or several, you want to be on the lookout for signs of interest from him. I see more women struggle at this stage far more than the other two combined, and then continue to waste their time with the wrong guys. This struggle makes sense – the more emotionally involved you become in a potential relationship, the harder it is to be objective. I will cover this topic later because it’s big enough to warrant its own page.

Signs He’s Interested

If you see a Hottie at a party, at your gym, in class, or anywhere else, look for these signs:

Looking: You’ll catch him checking you out, either directly or on the sly when he thinks you don’t know. Sometimes you’ll feel him looking at you, but when you look his way, he turns away. One look is a potential sign of interest. Two or more is a definite sign.

Eye contact: I discuss eye contact at length in my book. If you can only take one message from today’s blog, take this one: eye contact tells all. Eye contact is intense and makes people uncomfortable – think of yourself in an elevator with other people, and how much you avoid each other’s eyes. Because of this, people keep eye contact brief. If it lasts longer than normal – say, 2+ seconds – PAY ATTENTION. People look at what interests them. Likewise, they don’t look at what doesn’t interest them, and an uninterested man will make only brief eye contact with you, if any.

Proximity: If you suddenly start seeing a guy around more often, he may be interested. He might start showing up to your Starbucks in the morning because he saw you there, or might pass by you often if at a bar or the gym. He’s hoping to find a way to meet you.

If you see these signs, you probably have a live one and he’s waiting for permission to talk to you. Give it to him. Smile. Say hello. If you’re daring, wink.

Okay, so say you got him talking. Congrats! Breaking the ice is the toughest step! Now, look for these signs:

Wanting to talk: If he’s interested in you, he’ll genuinely want to talk. He’ll turn toward  you, listen intently, ask you about yourself, and tell you about himself. His expression will look interested, and he may raise his eyebrows or even smile. Likewise, uninterested man will seem bored, have less to say, look around the room more, turn his body away from you (like he’s looking to leave), and/or will have a flat expression like he’s only listening to be polite.

Preening: Some men will brush lint off their shirt, run hands through their hair, adjust their tie. They’re unconsciously trying to look good.

Nervousness: Look for fidgeting, stuttering, clearing his throat, or blushing. These are obvious signs, but with skill you’ll learn more subtle signs he’s nervous. Men are usually nervous on some level when talking to a woman they like, even if they’re good at hiding it. We’re all nervous when we feel attraction, and if a guy seems too smooth, he’s probably not the kind of guy you want.

Iran Set To Execute Woman After 7 Years In Jail For Killing Her Attempted Rapist

An Iranian woman charged with the murder of man who allegedly attempted to rape her could be executed today. Reyhaneh Jabbari, 26, was arrested in 2007 for the killing of Morteza Abdolali Sarbandi, a former employee of Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence who she said tried to sexually abuse her.

She was sentenced to death by a Tehran court in 2009 and her execution verdict was upheld by Iran’s Supreme Court. Yesterday news came up that her execution was to be postponed but seems like the Iranian government changed their mind again…
                
Reyhaneh’s case drew international outcry and sparked a petition urging her release, which has garnered over 190,000 signatures.

On Monday, her mother, Shole Paravan, recounted on her Facebook page an emotional farewell call her daughter made when a sympathetic guard loaned her a cellphone before she was taken to Rajaiy Shahr Prison to be hanged.

“I am currently handcuffed and there is a car waiting outside to take me for the execution of the sentence,” Jabbari told her mother, whose recounting in Farsi was translated by FoxNews.com.

“Goodbye, dear Mum. All of my pains will finish early tomorrow morning. I’m sorry I cannot lessen your pain. Be patient. We believe in life after death.
I’ll see you in the next world and I will never leave you again because being separated from you is the most difficult thing to do in the world.”  “I am currently handcuffed and there is a car waiting outside to take me for the execution of the sentence.”- Rayhaneh Jabbari 

Reyhaneh’s mother said she called the prison to ask what she could do and was told to come Tuesday to collect her daughter’s body.

In April, a court postponed Jabbari’s execution in the face of heavy international outcry, including an international petition with nearly 200,000 signatures. But the grim news that the sentence will soon be carried out came as Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is in New York for the United Nations General Assembly, trying to put a moderate face on the regime.

Wizkid ‘The Predictable Kid’ [Album Review]

Album- ‘Ayo’ (Joy)
Artiste: Wizkid (Ayodeji Balogun)
Guest Appearances: Akon, Tyga, Banky W, Phyno, Seyi Shay,Femi Kuti and Wale.

Record Label: Empire Mates Entertainment (E.M.E)
Year: 2014

Regardless of the fact that we all have a right to freedom of expression, I think it’s a criminal offence to wickedly and baselessly criticise any intellectual work of art, because a lot of time, effort and creativity goes into it. On the flip side however, if you have kept your fans eagerly anticipating an album for over three years, shifted the release date countless times as it was the case with Wizkid, then you should know they expect nothing but pure magic from you.

His love for his mum

Wizkid shows a rare and unmatched love for his mum in this album. With two dedicated tracks ‘Mummy mi’ and ‘Joy’ for his mum, it simply means he truly loves her and this is not the kind of love you can fake, it definitely comes from a sincere and genuine place. Not forgetting his mother again gets generous mention in ‘Ojuelegba,’ the emotive song about his hood and beginning of his journey.

The sound quality

If there’s one thing you can’t fault in this album, it has to be the sound quality. You can proudly take the sound of this album to the moon and back and you’ll still be proud of it. A lot of kudos and respect should be given to the guy who mixed and mastered this album known as Suka Sounds. You can practically hear all the drums, baseline, kicks, synth and snare that come with each track.

In my bed

Make no mistake, there’s no formula to making a good song anymore, gone are the days when a song must have two verses, a bridge and chorus to be complete, if Don Jazzy could make ‘Dorrobucci’ a hit song with 7 different artistes, no chorus and one directional beat, then anything is possible. However, ‘In my bed,’ the 3rd track on the album is proving to be one of the break-out songs on the album but I think it’s a confused song. The title and verses portray the song as a love song and then Wizkid goes praise singing on the chorus, making the song look mixed up and giving it a cacophony of discordant tunes.

An album of 19 singles…

In street parlance, all the songs on this album are quite good, and for a new artiste, all the songs could very well be individual singles. Wizkid has just made a compilation of dope singles, with no storyline, no message, no personal songs, no skits.

Song arrangement

The arrangement of the songs is quite intelligent too. Wizkid did a good job in the arrangement of this album. The best songs started the album and the least interesting ones were pushed further down.

Producers

Another faultless department in Wizkid’s Ayo album is the production. The producers came correct on this album. A total of 8 top notch producers worked on this album and you can’t really find a fault. Sarz, Uhuru, Spellz, Legendary Beatz, Maleek Berry, Dr Frabs, Del B and Shizzi all gave a good account of themselves in terms of the quality of beats they brought on this project.

Conclusion

Times are fast changing, music evolves and as an artiste and individual, you need to constantly rejuvenate and re-invent your style else you’ll become stale, boring and predictable. And the moment you become predictable, it becomes super easy to anticipate your next move and counter it.

Wizkid remains the same old Wizkid we all know on this album, the style of singing is the same, no wow factor, no climax, nothing out of the ordinary, nothing spectacular in Wizkid’s delivery.

Pundits have argued that he did this because it’s his last album with his current record label, E.M.E and his next and soon-to-be-released album under his self-owned ‘Star Boy’ records would be the spectacular stuff. Well we patiently await.

Rating 3.5/5

Nicki Minaj Was Brainwashed, Former Manager Big Fendi Says

According to Big Fendi, Nicki Minaj is still signed to his Dirty Money production company.

Big Fendi, the former manager of Nicki Minaj, spoke in-depth about discovering the rapper, their falling out, and more, during a recent interview with Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club. Fendi kicked off his interview by informing those listening that he still owns the trademark to Nicki Minaj, NickiMinaj.com, and more.

He also added that he was only offered a finder’s fee of $15,000 for the work he put in with Minaj prior to her deal with Young Money.

“I didn’t get nothing,” Big Fendi said. “Nah, Nicki tried to offer me a finder’s fee of 15,000. I laughed at it. Can’t be serious…Actually, I own the trademark to Nicki Minaj. I own NickiMinaj.com. I actually [own her trade]. So, in a minute you gon’ see a lot of things coming off those shelves.”

According to Fendi, he met Nicki Minaj through MySpace in either 2006 or 2007. He says that he encouraged the Jamaica, Queens lyricist to change her rap name from Nicki Maraj to Nicki Minaj for marketing purposes. He added that changing her name was a move cosigned by both Jadakiss and Busta Rhymes.

Big Fendi also recalled being taken aback by the contract initially offered to Nicki by Young Money. He says the contract didn’t include an advance or royalties.

“Nicki’s a groupie,” he said. “I mean, Nicki jumps from—Nicki started with me in ’06, ’07. I met her on MySpace…Her name was Nicki Maraj when I met her. I changed her name to Nicki Minaj.
And I actually got into a big argument with her family because she felt like—Nicki didn’t like the name Minaj. She felt like I was degrading her. Like ‘Oh, you tryna take me to a whole ‘nother situation.’ I was like ‘Nah, they need it for marketing.’ I actually called Jadakiss up. I called Busta up. I was like ‘How y’all feel about Nicki Minaj?’ They was like ‘Oh, that’s hard.’ So, we started off like that. She’s actually still signed to my production company, which is Dirty Money…It took me 70 days to get the Young Money deal. It was the Young Money/Dirty Money deal. So, when I got the contract Nicki started ducking me. Because Wayne gave me one of those Cash Money contracts from the ‘80s. It was no royalties on it. No advance, nothing. So, I told Nicki ‘Yo, I ain’t signing this contract. I ain’t gonna let you do that to yourself.’ She started crying…Nicki might got a better contract now.”

Fendi later detailed the moment Debra Antney, mother to Waka Flocka Flame, came into the picture. He revealed that it was prior to Nicki Minaj signing to Young Money that she began working with Antney, a person he later said “brainwashed” Nicki.

“Debbie called me up two weeks later like ‘Oh, I like your artist,’” Big Fendi said. “Cause I gave her the mixtape. She was like ‘I like your artist. We need to set up a meeting’…Nicki went out there and then Debbie brainwashed her. Debbie got out there—Debbie got her little tactics. Debbie hit her with the ‘Nicki Minaj, I don’t know about that name. He’s trying to take you in the wrong direction.’ So, I’m like ‘Hold on, Debbie. You my homegirl. How you poisoning my artist after I put you on to her’…Meanwhile, my contract with Wayne/Young Money is still moving. So, basically she tried to wait til my contract expired before she signed with Young Money…I still got that contract to this day. That’s what I’m in court with.”

8 Reasons you Should be Thankful for a Broken Heart

Love: It’s a word that famous poets, ancient philosophers, popular musicians and passionate people around the world either dread or desire. More often than not, however, their rhymes and rhythms come with a sting.

Love can be just as lethal as it is lively because of its ability to end in pain. That’s the thing: No matter who you are, heartbreak is a reality. I come with good news, however: One of the greatest opportunities to figure out who we really are comes in the wake of a breakup or a heartbreak.

If there were no heartbreak, some of the greatest songs ever written might not even exist.

You might not see it now because you are blinded by your pain. Like Clark Kent turns into Superman, your true self can be revealed through this hardship. Let me tell you why.

1. YOU WILL BE THANKFUL

There will be a time when you will look back and be thankful that certain people, opportunities and things were removed from your life because you would have never found yourself had you not lost them.

Sometimes, we get so caught up worrying about what we lost, rather than realizing what we are gaining in its absence.

2. IT IS A WAKE-UP CALL

You know when you are so dead in your sleep, that not even a thunderstorm can wake you? Sometimes it takes somebody to physically shake you in order to wake you up.

Well, meet heartbreak, your personal shaker-upper. For a while, you might be upset that it perturbed you, but ultimately, it is a good thing it woke you up because that life storm was about to eradicate you while you slept.

Now, your eyes are open. You are aware of your surroundings. So take a good look around the room because it might be time to do some rearranging.

3. MANY THINGS ARE SEASONAL

Even if the love did not last, it prepared you for the one that will. The truth is, you WILL be sad to see your ex go, but you will be happy you finally get to move on.

The rejections in your life make room for more opportunities. The person who turned you down is only propelling you toward the person who will snatch you up!

Some people might only be temporary, but the lessons they teach you will last forever. Not everyone is meant to remain permanently in your life. We can’t force anyone to stay.

I am not saying you should not work at a relationship during the trials that may ensue. I am saying that, like a transition from fall to winter, one thing ends so another beautiful thing can begin.

Trying to stick leaves back on a tree when it’s no longer the proper season is not going to make it fall again — and you have to accept that.

4. YOU ARE STILL LOVED

I have seen way too many people lose sleep, profusely vomit and even get suicidal thoughts over heartbreak. Although it hurts, never forget about the love you DO have in your life by focusing on the love you do not.

Why substitute the loss of love from one source for the 10,000 sources you still have? Sure, maybe it is not romantic love you want right now, but who says we need romantic love to feel loved all the time?

Don’t feel like you need approval from one specific person to find value or love in your life. There are so many other sources of love.

Most importantly, do not forget about the most crucial source of all: yourself. Find that value within you because self-love and self-approval are irreplaceable.

5. IT WILL MAKE YOU BRAVE

One of the most daring things you can do is to let go of what is hurting you. Sometimes in life, we have to surrender and simply accept that the past is behind us.

Stop asking how the pain will end; instead, focus on what it taught you. Reevaluate what is truly important to you and move on. Let your past make you better, not bitter. Will it be easy? Hell no, but it will be so worth it.

You might not have realized it before, but that person who broke your heart might have been acting as a safety net for you. He or she might have been shielding you from becoming everything you are meant to be.

Now is your chance to steal your show back. Be you, and be free.

6. ALONE DOESN’T MEAN LONELY

Be brave enough to walk alone, and don’t be scared to like it. This is the time in your life to walk with your head held high. You are allowed to set boundaries, and you are allowed to say see ya later to anyone who doesn’t respect them, without apology.

Never feel guilty for being single, and don’t feel like just because you are single, you have to be prepping to be in a relationship anytime soon.

You do not need a significant other to lead a significant life. You are never completely alone, as long as you are true to the person in the mirror.

7. YOU LOVED

We all know the saying, “It is better to have loved and lost, than to have never loved at all.” Sounds cliché, but to me, it holds true. Loving is always a risk, but it is an even bigger risk not to love.

Even though I came out hurt, I grew and I learned. I love a little differently each and every time. Each love is a new love and a learning experience.

Maybe, on some distant planet lightyears away, love might not even exist. Those of us who are lucky enough to love at all should milk it for everything it is worth. Loving in itself is truly a gift.

8. YOU WILL LEARN TO BE PATIENT

One time, in a two-hour line for a roller coaster, I decided to chat with the people in front of me. To this day, I still reflect on that conversation and think of it as one of the best conversations I ever had.

Some of the best things in life happen in the in-between, the waiting process. Had I just hopped on the roller coaster right away, maybe I wouldn’t have enjoyed it as much. Perhaps, I would not have been ready. At the very least, I would not have made an incredible memory.

What we learn, what we become and what we experience is sometimes even more important than for what or whom we are actually waiting. There is a purpose behind everything you are going through; the land of in-between could be where you find that purpose.

As humans, we are faced with a choice: We can either stick to the past and miss out on our future, or we can do our best to accept circumstances as they are and press on to a brighter tomorrow. If you ask me, the latter option sounds a lot more appealing.

You cannot always control what happens to you, but you can control what you do with it. I know it hurts, but you can and WILL make it. Your wounds will make you wiser. One day, you can help someone else like I hope I just did for you.

Take your strength back from the person who hurt you, and rip off your disguise, super person. It is time to show the world who you are becoming. No more looking for a hero — you are one.

Lil’ Kim Calls Nicki Minaj ‘Obsessed’ The War of Words Continues.

Lil’ Kim and Nicki Minaj have been exchanging shots for a few years now, and the verbal war was reignited last month, when Kim jabbed at the Young Money MC twice: First, on her “Flawless” remix, and then a few days later on “Identity Theft.”

But Kim says that their issues are rooted in Nicki’s actions, not her own — and that the recent lyrics were simply a response to Ms. Minaj’s verse on her own “Flawless” remix.

“She’s been waiting for so long just to even say the word ‘Queen Bee,’ ’cause that’s how obsessed she is,” she said during an interview with “The Breakfast Club,” referencing the lyric, “The queen of rap slaying with Queen Bey/ If you ain’t on the team you playing for team D.”

Kim, of course, has called herself the “Queen Bee” since the 1990s, but Beyoncé certainly has a claim to the name “Queen Bey” — and it’s alternate spelling — in her own right. But that’s not enough for Kim.

“She’s been waiting to say that,” she said. “It’s just like, come on, you on a record with Beyoncé. [If] I had a record with Beyoncé — I’m not saying nothing remotely so that this chick can even think I’m talking about her. We all know what it is. Let’s just be real. It’s so deep that when I finish putting together this documentary, everyone will fully understand.”

She says the documentary will drop later this year or in early 2015, and will shed light on the depth of their issues — which include a foiled relationship with Young Money.

“It’s not me against her, it’s me against a machine. She would be lightwork for me. When you compare what I’m doing right now to that machine, it’s not ever gonna look fair, it ain’t ever gonna look even. If I had that same machine behind me, then you’d see what’s up, for real.”

“I’m Kim, so when I attack back, I’m the big, bad wolf,” she added. “Let’s just be real. She took the first shots. It’s always been like that…She’s been throwing shot, and still throwing shots.”

There is one thing, Kim says, that could mend the rift, though.

“Money.”
