Chiz Escudero wants to get married before 2016

Chiz Escudero wants to get married before 2016

Chiz Escudero wants to get married before 2016

Unlike other politicians who are already gearing up for the 2016 presidential elections, Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero is more focused on his plans of settling down with current girlfriend, actress Heart Evangelista.

In an interview with ANC’s “Headstart” on Monday, Escudero admitted that he wants to get married before 2016.

“Mas may pinaghahandaan ako bago mag 2016 kesa yung 2016. 'Yun muna. I would want to [get married]. Again, kung si Allan (Cayetano) may ‘I want to become a president,’ this is what I want before 2016,” he said.

The lawmaker, however, said he has yet to formally propose to Evangelista.

“But, of course, we talk about it in broad strokes, that we would want to be there at some point in time. But the actual process of step one, step two, proposal and saying yes, planning, wala pa 'yun,” he said.

Escudero stressed that family always comes first for him, which is why he wants to get married again.

“It’s not odd. At the end of the day, family is important. Family should be higher than any political ambition because your stint in politics will end at some point in time in your life. Titigil at titigil 'yun. Pero 'yung pamilya, it’s always going to be there,” he said.

Asked if he is certain that Evangelista is already the right woman for him, Escudero simply quipped: “You don’t enter into a relationship unless you do.”

Escudero and Evangelista have been in a relationship since 2012.

Abusive relationship

Abusive relationship

Many people quietly suffer the indignity of being in an abusive relationship, but are not aware of it or will not readily admit to the abuse.

Here are some of the warning signs of abuse and how to deal with an abusive relationship.

What is abuse?

Domestic violence and abuse can take many forms, including emotional, sexual and physical abuse and threats of abuse. Men are sometimes the victims, but more often than not, domestic abuse is directed toward women. However, domestic abuse can likewise happen in either straight or same sex relationships.

Abuse is generally characterized as any behavior that’s used to punish, humiliate, manipulate, or embarrass another person.

According to Dr. Maria Imelda Batar, chairperson of the Department of Psychiatry of The Medical City (TMC), abusive partners often demonstrate an insensitivity to the physical and psychological needs of their partners. There is also a tendency to separate their partners from friends, family and other social contacts.

Finally, the abuser cares little or even ignores completely the rights of their partner such as their right to privacy, right to be happy, or to have their own possessions.

Overt and subtle signs

Abuse can be overt, and can take the form of actual threats, stalking, vandalism, and discreet monitoring of communications such as cellphones, text messages and email accounts.

At the same time, abuse can be more subtle. For example, the abuser exhibits fits of overreacting that keeps the abused partner frightened or on his or her toes, gives subtle spiteful remarks disguised as "compliments," provides advice that's said to be "for your own good," or even offers to "help" by managing the abused partner's money, career, or relationships with others.

Pattern of abuse

According to the Mayo Clinic, you might recognize this pattern if one is in an abusive relationship:

• Your abuser threatens violence.
• Your abuser carries out the threat.
• Your abuser apologizes, assures you he or she will change and offers gifts.
• Then the cycle repeats itself.

Typically the violence recurs and escalates, or worsens over time.

Typical profile of an abused victim

Dr. Batar adds that the typical abused partner is either perceived to be weak or passive, or poor. In other words, victims are usually people who are dependent on the abusive partner.

Abused victims are usually women, children, the elderly or the disabled. They are oftentimes poor and are therefore financially dependent on the abuser. More often than not, the victim is undereducated or lacks a formal education completely. Sometimes, victims have had an abusive relationship in the past.

Characteristics of a potential abuser

Dr. Batar also provided the typical traits of a potential abuser. These are:

1. A history of being abused during childhood.
2. Undiagnosed personality disorder
3. A history of substance abuse such as drugs or alcohol
4. Extremely jealous

Help for victims escaping an abusive relationship

Getting out of an abusive relationship is difficult. In fact in many cases, it becomes a vicious cycle where the victim escapes or leaves but later on has no choice but to go back to the abuser.

Experts agree that the victim must begin by acknowledging the problem exists. Victims should be aware of the danger signs at the earliest possible time. Dr. Batar, in particular, cautioned victims to stop thinking an abuser will change or mend his or her ways – in many instances they will not, especially in the absence of psychological help or counseling.

Victims should seek the help of family members or friends in case the abuser comes to take the victim back. Additionally there are support groups that can provide shelter and help to victims who want to escape. – with reports from Alexandra Geronimo and Gina Tobias, Multimedia Producer Yam dela Cruz

Top 10 Things College Girls Looking for a Man

Top 10 Things College Girls Looking for a Man

It's no secret that college girls are a little more sophisticated in what they are looking for in a potential mate than they might be otherwise. But what does this mean? Are they looking for someone who is well educated, eloquent, and refined, or do they just want to have fun while in school and look to get serious after they finish their education?

Well one thing they clearly want is to get married. Recently, the Institute for American Values for the Independent Women's forum, undertook a national survey of women in college and found that the vast majority agreed when asked if getting married was one of their major life goals. Also, it might be noted that the majority also said that they hoped to meet the person they would marry while still in school.

It's also important to note that female college students, like their male brethren, are generally higher achievers than are woman that don't attend college. For example, the Boston Globe Magazine reported in 2005 that in 1968, just 17.6 percent of college freshman had an 'A' average while in high school. By 2003, the number had jumped to 46.6 percent. In short, college women are working harder towards achieving lifelong objectives than they used to and are quite naturally going to be more selective in choosing who they invite along on their journey. With this in mind, below are the top then things that college girls are looking for in a man.

1 - Maturity. College women find themselves having to grow up faster than they thought they would have to when they went to college. They expect prospective mates to be doing the same.
2 - Kindness. Women meet a lot of guys in college and very soon discover that a lot of them are not very nice. This causes them to be more discerning in what they are looking for.
3 - Intelligence. While in college, women are afforded to meet intelligent men. Men who quit often make a serious positive influence on them.
4 - Leadership. College women discover that men who are leaders in school will make good leaders once they leave. These are the guys that will be successful in life.

5 - Honesty. As with women who don't go to college, women who do also want a man who is honest and will play fair.

6 - Goodness. It's one thing to be able to be good when the spotlight is on, quite another to behave when no one is looking. That's what makes a good guy. This is what college women are looking for.

7 - Compatibility. Because they meet so many young men in college, women discover the virtues of compatibility. They see it every day in lab partners or in work groups. They see the opposite as well and thus come to see the true its true benefits.

8 - Loyalty. As with anyone else, college women are looking for loyalty. In college they see a lot of "hooking up" and people behaving badly towards one another. This leaves them longing for someone who will be loyal to them, and only them.

9 - Sense of humor. As with any relationship, but possibly even more so with women in college, humor is vital for a sense of feeling together and connected with a man they care deeply for.

10 - Initiative. Because college women learn how competitive the world truly is, the come to admire and respect the men they met that have initiative and drive, feeling comfortable that they will be successful in their professional endeavors.

I hope this list helps you figure it out. Good luck.

What Men Like in Women?

What Men Like in Women?

Men can’t help but love women. But do you really know what men like in women and what is it about a woman that they find most attractive?

Men like women. A lot.
But there are a few kinds of women that men absolutely adore and fall in love with, wherever they go.
Ever seen an ad on the television where a girl walks across the street and all the guys either trail her or wolf whistle in appreciation?
Want to be that girl?
When it comes to appreciation at first sight, what different men like in women doesn’t really vary a lot.
It’s the simple things really.
And it’s really simple to become that woman who can make heads turn and men swoon wherever you go.
Find out what men like in women and be that attractive woman that all men want and desire.
But then again, once you know what men really like in women, what are you going to do with all that attention?!

What men like in women?

Attraction and infatuation at first sight are very different from the deep appreciation that men get once they get to know a woman well.

But for starters, here are the special aspects about women that make men thank the one above for creating women in the first place.

#1 A cheerful attitude

The cheerful laugh or a flirty giggle of a happy, cheerful woman can melt even the hardest of manly hearts. Have a happy, cheerful personality and try to look at the happier side of life all the time. There’s something about a cheerful woman whose eyes light up with joy that draws all men to her.

#2 The way she looks and dresses

It’s always easier to attract attention from men when you make an effort to look good and dress well. A bright red umbrella is always a lot more attention grabbing on a rainy day amidst all the dull umbrellas, doesn’t it?

Dress well and feel good about yourself. You don’t really have to try and stand out with bold, flashy colors all the time. Just dress like a perfect ten in well fitting clothes and appear confident. And yes, don’t forget that dab of perfume to leave a trail of men swooning over your fragrance as you walk past them!

#3 Flirty gestures

What men like in women is a streak of flirty seduction. Do you curl your lips or hold a pen in your lip when you’re trying to come up with an idea? Do you wink or raise your eyebrows flirtily when you say goodbye or pass a smart remark? Well, if you do indulge in any of those expressions or even a million other expressions that make you look cuter-than-cute, then you’re already on your way to make hearts beat a lot faster.

Men can’t get enough of flirty gestures from women. Stand in front of the mirror and try a few flirty moves. It may seem dumb at first, but hey, remember what men like in women and try this tip. It’s guaranteed to show results within seconds!

#4 Just a little bit of skin

Want that glance to turn into a second and third glance? Learn to show a bit of skin. An outright pound of cleavage or a slab of midriff can seem attractive, but it’s also trashy and crude. And it makes you look like you’re trying too hard to please and get attention.

Play subtle. It works a lot better. A shirt or a tee that ends just right around where your jeans start, or a perfectly fitting top with a wider neck that shows a bit but yet needs a bit of craning to get a peep is just perfect for men. They love the nearly-there peeks and their curiosity would drive them crazy enough to stare, again and again.

#5 A seductive voice

If there’s anything that makes the hair on the back of a man’s neck stand in excitement, it’s a woman’s sweet and sexy voice. Now mastering the art of the husky voice takes time, so don’t give it too much of a thought just yet.

When you’re speaking with a man, speak in a low tone and avoid the high pitched glass shattering squeal that most women use when they’re surprised or ecstatic with joy. A low, soft voice inadvertently sounds more arousing and attractive. And the best part here, it’s easy to speak in a low, softer tone without seeming like you’re trying too hard. Try your new softer voice the next time you’re on the phone. And don’t blame us if the man on the other end gets flirty!

#6 A woman who asks for help

This is every man’s dream. Well, as long as he isn’t your man already!

Men like to feel wanted and appreciated by women. Most women think men are slobs who hate working or running errands, but that’s the case only if he’s already in a long term relationship with you. If he’s single and a woman with all the aforementioned characteristics walks up to him and asks him to help her out with a smile, he’d jump up like a jack in the box.

Men absolutely love a woman who asks for help. It makes them feel more macho, gives them an excuse to have a conversation with a pretty woman, and reawakens their evolutionary desire to be the provider and the protector. And when you thank a man with a flirty smile, there’s a good chance that he’d gush with awkward embarrassment and ask for your phone number!

#7 A woman’s ability to flirt back

Do you ever flirt back with a man, even if it’s just for fun? Many women feel awkward, embarrassed or even threatened when a friendly guy starts a little flirting game.

Just because you indulge in a friendly game of flirting doesn’t mean you’re falling for a guy, remember that. If you want to impress a man, have a fun conversation with him. If you bring your flirty expressions into the conversation, there’s a good chance that any guy would want to flirt with you or sweet talk you, even if he’s with his own girlfriend!

But you don’t always have to flirt back with a guy, sometimes when you play hard to get and blow hot or cold once in a while, it’ll throw a guy off guard and make him try harder to please you.

#8 A woman who acknowledges a man’s stare

You may like a guy who’s sipping his whiskey at the far end of the bar counter. How would you feel if he looks at you, gives you his dirtiest stare and looks away? You’d feel shattered, of course.

Men have a heart too, you know. If a guy’s trying to catch your attention or trying to exchange a glance, you don’t need to reciprocate all the time. But if he does seem decent enough, it’s a warm gesture to lock eyes for a second and look away.

You don’t need to date him or have his babies, but a simple acknowledgement that you noticed him can make his day, especially when you’re such a stunning woman with all the charms. You can look once and forget all about it, and any guy would appreciate that. If there’s one thing men like in women, it’s the ability to acknowledge a man without blowing him off in the first glance.

You could give him your dirtiest stare though, if he seems too eager to continue the game or makes a move to talk to you.

Despite Wealth, Health And Opportunity, Women Still less Content

Despite Wealth, Health And Opportunity, Women Still less Content 


As a teenager, I had heard the following joke (now studies have shown that it is a reality that women are never happy. They just keep crying about having less even if they have everything):
A store that sells new husbands has opened in New York City, where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates:

You may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are six floors and the value of the products increase as the shopper ascends the flights. The shopper may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building!

So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband. On the first floor the sign on the door reads:

Floor 1 – These men Have Jobs.
She is intrigued, but continues to the second floor, where the sign reads:

Floor 2 – These men Have Jobs and Love Kids.
“That’s nice”, she thinks, “but I want more.”
So she continues upward. The third floor sign reads:

Floor 3 – These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, and are Extremely Good Looking.
“Wow,” she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.
She goes to the fourth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 4 – These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Good Looking and Help With Housework.
“Oh, mercy me!” she exclaims, “I can hardly stand it!”
Still, she goes to the fifth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 5 – These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Gorgeous, Help with Housework, and Have a Strong Romantic Streak.
She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor, where the sign reads:

Floor 6 – You are visitor 31,456,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store.

To avoid gender bias charges, the store’s owner opened a New Wives store just across the street.
The first floor has wives that love sex.
The second floor has wives that love sex and have money.
The third, fourth, fifth and sixth floors have never been visited.

Man faked his own death to propose

Man faked his own death to propose

30-year old Russian businessman Alexey Bykov decided to propose to his girlfriend, but not before enlisting the help of an entire crew of people to help fake his own death in a horrible car accident to see how she would react to his passing.After telling his bride-to-be to meet him at a certain location:

Alexey Bykov hired a director, stuntmen, make up artists and a scriptwriter to help him fake his own death in a car accident before proposing to his girlfriend, Irena Kolokov.

Bykov asked Kolokov to meet him at a designated spot, but when she arrived she saw Bykov on the ground, covered in blood and seemingly killed in a car crash. Kolokov immediately burst into tears when she saw him lying "dead," as an actor-paramedic told her, among the mangled cars.

But Bykov jumped back to life before her eyes and proposed to her on the spot.

"I wanted her to realize how empty her life would be without me and how life would have no meaning without me," he told.
