Top 10 Dating App Tips from a marketing professional & relationship expert!

Having been single during most of the pandemic, I have used a number of dating apps, and as a marketing professional and relationship expert, I’m surprised at how wrong some people get their dating app profiles, so I just thought I’d share my top 10 tips to help people get more out of these apps these the might be doing so already!

1. Make sure you have a Number of Good Profile Pictures and that they are All of You!

The number of times you see pictures of multiple people (which one are you?), pets (am I dating a dog), positive quotes (who are you), cropped pictures (what do you look like) and kids (so you have children), is ridiculous?

2. Don’t have a Picture with your Shirt Off (or over doing it on the show of Flesh)!

This is cheesy and don’t look good to most women! (And is going to get you the wrong sort of attention if you’re a woman – unless you want that sort of attention)!

3. Fill Your Profile In Fully (and make it interesting)!

Use the opportunity to showcase your best points, hobbies and interests etc. So you can find someone who has things in common with you rather than be contacted by any random person or no one as there’s no details or info to make a judgement on!

4. Read the Profiles to the end, before getting in touch!

Get an understanding of the person tour contacting before contacting them and then select some info from the profile to use as an ice breaker when you make your introduction.

5. Don’t send DP’s (D*ck Pics)!

Most women don’t want them and if they do, they prefer them down the line when they get to know you, and want to get intimate with you!

6. Don’t Match with People and then Ghost them!

Communication is key so if you match with someone then reply to them and don’t just ignore them for days even if you are busy and not on the app regular.

7. Be Exiting and Enthusiastic in your Communication and Make An Effort!

Don’t just respond to questions with one word answers and make an effort to be enthusiastic in your conversation and make yourself interesting rather than someone who is uninspired and uninterested in life with nothing going on.

8. Try not to use Images that have other People Scribbled Out In.

This just doesn’t look good and show lack of effort. Surely you have pictures of you alone or can take some selfies etc. Come on Make an Effort!

9. Remember that Dating is a Contact Sport!

Most people are looking for a date and not a pen pal so after a bit if chat move the process on to an actual date or video chat to see whether you get on and their is potential to move things along!

10. Don’t use Images from Years Ago!

If you’re using an image from 10 years ago and you can see clearly that it’s not an up to date picture then you are admitting that you aren’t confident in how you look now and can prevent some matches. You can also end up on a date with someone who’s expecting something different than what turns up and can end up wasting a lot of time with this approach.

British Young Tennis Star, Emma Raducanu reaches US Open Final in New York

Emma Raducanu reaches US Open final in New York

British teenager Emma Raducanu reached the US Open final as her meteoric rise continued with a stunning straight-set win over Greek 17th seed Maria Sakkari in New York.

Raducanu, 18, extended her dream run with a 6-1 6-4 victory in which her dominance again almost defied belief.

She is the first qualifier to reach a Grand Slam final and will play another teenager Leylah Fernandez on Saturday.

Raducanu is the first British woman in a major singles final in 44 years.

Watched on by Virginia Wade – the last woman to achieve that feat at Wimbledon in 1977 – Raducanu produced another fearless and ruthless victory that stunned those watching on Arthur Ashe Stadium.

After confidently swatting away a volley on her first match point, Raducanu immediately dropped her racquet on the court and covered her mouth with both hands.

Quickly she broke out into a beaming smile before lapping up the acclaim of a rapturous crowd on the world’s biggest tennis court.

“The time in New York has gone so quickly, I’ve been taking care of each day and three weeks later I’m in the final. I actually can’t believe it,” Raducanu said.

Reaction to brilliant Raducanu reaching the US Open final

‘Crazy, cool & mind-blowing’ to reach final – Raducanu

Raducanu set to be best paid British sportswoman

After coming through three qualifying matches to reach the main draw, she has not dropped a set in any of her nine matches at Flushing Meadows.

It is only Raducanu’s second Grand Slam tournament and the fourth tour-level event of her career.

Additionally, Raducanu is:

the youngest British Grand Slam finalist in 62 years, since Christine Truman reached the French Open final aged 18 in 1959

the first British woman to reach a US Open final in 53 years, following Wade in 1968

only the fourth British woman to reach a Grand Slam final in the Open era

Before her run to the Wimbledon last 16 earlier this summer, Raducanu was ranked 336th in the world.

This win puts her on the verge of the top 30 after already being assured of becoming the British women’s number one by reaching the last four at Flushing Meadows.

Most pertinently, it gives the London teenager – who also passed her A Levels this summer – the opportunity to win one of tennis’ most prestigious titles when she faces Canadian 19-year-old world number 73 Fernandez at 21:00 BST on Saturday.

Given the one-sided nature of the victory against Sakkari – and those before it – Raducanu will not be fazed by the occasion.

Fast start pays dividends for Raducanu

Reaching the last 16 at Wimbledon on her Grand Slam debut catapulted Raducanu into stardom, yet somehow she has managed to surpass what she achieved there with the extraordinary exploits in New York.

Yet again she dismantled a much more experienced opponent with such ease that it breathtakingly belied her age and experience.

Former British number one Greg Rusedski said her performance against Sakkari was “worthy of a world number one”.

French Open semi-finalist Sakkari, like those opponents before her, was left befuddled by Raducanu’s poise and execution. The Greek, who was also aiming to reach her maiden Grand Slam final, was unable to cope with Raducanu’s intensity and could not find a solution to negate it.

Raducanu faced seven break points in her opening two service games, seeing them all off to hold both and move into a 3-0 lead with a break sandwiched in-between.

Sakkari became frustrated with her inability to take her opportunities, chuntering at her box and complaining to the umpire before running off to swap her skirt at the first changeover.

In contrast to Sakkari’s anxious demeanour, Raducanu seemed completely unflustered by the occasion.

That continued as the Briton, backed by a few fans dressed in Union Jack colours and waving flags, won all the decisive points on the way to clinching the opening set in 36 minutes.

Nerveless finish as Henman provides inspiration

Being the frontrunner is a position Raducanu has become accustomed to at Flushing Meadows and once she broke for a 2-1 lead in the second set, there looked to be little way back for Sakkari.

Pressure continued to be applied in each of the Greek’s next two service games – but she managed to hold and maintain hope by remaining a single break down.

With the Greek player’s family looking increasingly tense as they watched on, Sakkari saved five break points in a momentous hold lasting almost 10 minutes for 4-3.

After exchanging holds, Raducanu then had the opportunity to serve for the match.

A wayward forehand put Sakkari 15-0 ahead, before Raducanu found a first serve that could not be returned and led to a loud roar of ‘Come on!’, which signalled the Briton’s relief.

A nerveless forehand down the line was timed to perfection for 30-15 and another penetrating baseline return set up a match point.

With a place in the US Open final beckoning, there were no signs of nerves as she sealed victory with a forehand volley.

Afterwards Raducanu said she had looked to former British number one Tim Henman, standing at the side of the court in his role as a television analyst, for reassuring support before serving on match point.

“Tim is honestly such a big inspiration, he was telling me to treat it one point at a time,” she said.

“In moments like this you definitely can’t get ahead of yourself and you need stay present.

“I’m grateful to Tim for everything he has done for British tennis and for me.”

New York’s teenage kicks signals a changing of the guard

Earlier in Thursday’s night session, Canadian teenager Fernandez sealed her place in the final by shocking Belarusian second seed Aryna Sabalenka.

Unseeded Fernandez, who turned 19 on Monday, won 7-6 (7-3) 4-6 6-4 to edge a tense semi-final.

Raducanu’s victory then set up the eighth Grand Slam final in the Open Era between teenagers.

It is the first since the 1999 US Open when American hope Serena Williams beat Switzerland’s Martina Hingis.

The success of Raducanu and Fernandez caps a tournament where a host of young stars have filled the void of several big names – in particular Williams, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal – with superb performances.

Martina Navratilova, the 18-time Grand Slam singles champion, said Raducanu and Fernandez’s success was a “changing of the guard” moment.

What Raducanu has achieved ‘does not seem real’ – reaction

Naomi Broady, British player on BBC Radio 5 Live : “I am just speechless, I am so so happy for her. It wasn’t Maria Sakkari’s night but it was the sheer pressure put on her by Emma Raducanu right from the start.

“She had those seven break points, Maria Sakkari, and she couldn’t take one. From that moment Raducanu ran away with the match.

“How exciting is this? We’re allowed to be excited about this, we’re not being British and ahead of ourselves – this is amazing!”

Russell Fuller, BBC tennis correspondent in New York: “ Emma Raducanu is making reaching a Grand Slam final look incredibly easy.

“You think about the players who since Virginia Wade in 1977 have been trying to reach a Grand Slam final for Britain in the women’s game – Johanna Konta came very close at the French Open in 2019 and Jo Durie too, a semi-finalist at the US Open among other appearances at that stage of a Grand Slam.

“Yet Emma Raducanu has done it at the second attempt at her Grand Slam and has taken all of our breath away with the way she has played throughout this summer. It doesn’t seem real.”

About the Historic Martello Tower F in Clacton on Sea, Essex, South East England, U.K.

Martello Tower F Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, South East England, UK

Martello Tower F is soon to be an exclusive Wedding and Events venue in Essex, set within a dry moat and situated at the junction of Marine Parade West and Tower Road, overlooking the promenade and seafront to the west of Clacton Pier in England, UK.

Martello Tower F is the only remaining moated example on the Essex coast; the others at Beacon Hill, St Osyth (B), Holland Haven (G) and Walton Cliffs (J) were demolished or destroyed by coastal erosion in the 19th century.

Tower F has seen some significant alterations, particularly in the 20th century, but the structure remains substantially unchanged and still retains many details dating from the period of construction. The first floor entrance, to the north west, is still approached by the original cast iron footbridge which spans the ditch on three pairs of stilt- like legs. The section nearest the tower is designed as a drawbridge, capable of being raised to seal the entrance. One of the chains first-floor the bridge remains in place, together with the slots and iron pulleys set into the head of the entrance passage. All four of the windows to this floor were framed and glazed during the 1960s, although the apertures still retain some of the iron bars dating from 1818.

Martello Tower F

Martello Tower F Clacton, Essex, England, UK – a unique and exclusive Wedding & Events venue in Essex, South East England, from August 2021.

A timber-clad observation room, formally a coastguard lookout, stands above the forward gun embrasure, resting on a metal gantry with legs set into concrete blocks on the tower’s roof. 

The ground floor of the tower is accessible via a modern passageway cut through the rear wall of a storage alcove on the south-west side. All the other alcoves and casemates remain largely unaltered and the lamp passage to the main magazine (on the seaward side) is particularly well preserved. 

In World War I the Martello tower F was commandeered as a piquet station for G Company of the 8th Battalion Essex Regiment. In the inter-war years the tower came into the hands of the local authority, and in 1931 the interior was as opened as a museum. The museum was short lived as the tower was returned to military control during World War II and thereafter leased to the Ministry of Defence. The interior remained in use by the Royal Naval Auxilliary Service (RNAS) until 1990. A children’s’ zoo was established around the tower in the 1970s but closed in the late 1980s.

Welsh Master Leadership & Public Speaking Coach Helps Spread Love Around the World, as Global Communications Officer at ‘Say Namaste’

‘Say Namaste’ – Do you believe in Love?                        

A Global Song Project and Peace Initiative.

 

‘Say Namaste’ is a global song project created by India based Relationship Coach Shradha WTB. in collaboration with Strymphony Music Entertainment Pvt. Ltd.

The project has received encouraging response and support from world leaders including The Dalai Lama and the former Global Head of Innovation & Creativity at Disney, Duncan Wardle.

                                                                                ‘Say Namaste‘ (‘Namaste’ is a greeting of respect and reverence. It conveys that we are the same and we are one) Say ‘Namaste’ is a non-religious, non-political way of spreading the gift of love around the planet. And what is the common element between music and relationships? Undoubtedly it’s love! 2020 has shown us the importance of our relationships and what are they without love? Let us not underestimate the ripple effect of a stone cast into a lake and the way that positivity can have that same effect.

Somethings brewing – and it’s not tea! But it does come from India and India is now working on a project that will truly embrace humanity, equality and solidarity throughout the world.

Shradha WTB and Strymphony have recently been joined in developing this immense project by Welsh born Master Leadership and Public Speaking Coach Gwenno Dafydd, as Global Communications Officer.

Shradha WTB had been stuck since June 2020 with resolving a business dilemma. Gwenno saw that there was a mismatch and lack of clarity with the message and asked Shradha theleading question, ‘Do you believe in love?’ which led to Shradha having an ‘Aha moment’ which was the starting point for this wonderful initiative, a ‘Conscious Global Revival Initiative’ of love.

Welsh cakes and Indian tea – what a wonderful combination! Duncan Wardle also has a Welsh connection having lived in Wales for four years and has been mentoring Shradha for the last year on her creativity. Watch how it’s blossoming now for the world to see.

In the few short weeks since the ‘Say Namaste’ project has been launched more than 35 countries have sent in their videos. The very first one was from Tibet and ‘Say Namaste’ has also been very blessed with His Holiness Dalai Lama’s personal monastery, The NamgyalMonastery contributing with their video for ‘Say Namaste’. Thanks to Thuten Kesang for bestowing this honour on the project. 

We have received videos from Canada, Bhutan, Ukraine, Wales, Turkey, Japan, Brazil – in fact the four corners of the world including a wonderful video from some of the children from the Season of the Time Media Productions –STMPs in the Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya. “The often forgotten children of KakumaRefugee Camp and I am truly honoured to be part of this wonderful project’’, said FideleWabenga, Project Director and thanks to him for organising all the children so quickly.  

And this is what Ontario based Racheal Elizabeth Bell, says. 

“2020 has truly shaken the world and in times of difficulty we must always “look for the helpers”. If you don’t see one you become one! Being asked to represent Canada in the ‘Say Namaste’ Conscious Global Initiative is my greatest honour. It is an opportunity to be a helper, to show love on a global scale and to show my gratitude for living in a home where I can have peace in times of struggle. This opportunity lit a spark in me that had faded and I am forever filled with love because of it.” 

There are 193 members of the United Nations (U.N.) plus two non-member countries with permanent observer states, the Holy City (The Vatican) and the State of Palestine. So, according to the U.N. there is a grand total of 195 sovereign states in the world today. NASA has shown interest – can we get a Namaste from outer space? Wouldn’t that be cool!

Going full circle, here are some of the inspirational quotes world leaders such as the Dalai Lama, Mahatma Gandhi (another great Indian) and Walt Disney have said.  

 Be the change you want to see in this world  – Mahatma Gandhi 
 If you can dream it – you can do it – Walt Disney
 It’s kind of fun to do the impossible – Walt Disney
 It is under the greatest adversity that there exists the greatest potential for doing good, both for oneself and others – Dalai Lama. 
 If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito – Dalai Lama. 

And bearing in mind all of these fabulous inspirational quotes Gwenno’s personal challenge to all the world is that all 195 countries come together in unity and record their videos making the prayer symbol and saying Namaste by the first of January 2021, marking it as the ‘Say Namaste Day’. Get a beautiful background showing our precious world in all its glory and say where that place is where you ‘Say Namaste’. Ask your famous friends to do a short clip! Let’s make the world as one and 2021 the year of ‘Namaste’.  

All videos that come in by midnight on the 20thDecember will be included in the next stage of this phenomenal project – some of which will be revealed on the 27th December, building up to the big launch by Duncan Wardle at midnight (New Delhi time) on the 31st January 2020 when ALL will be revealed! Until then – be part of this incredibly exciting unifying project and get your videos in. Further information on how to film your video and what to put into it at ‘Love Revolution’               https://say-namaste.com/index.php/loverevolution

Help ‘The Pituitary Foundation’ to save lives! • Introbiz Members News – Cardiff Business News

The Pituitary Foundation are doing a petition which everyone can sign. It is about changing the name ‘diabetes insipidus’ to pituitary insipidus – desmopressin dependent’ (PIDD).

The term ‘diabetes insipidus’ is very often mistaken for diabetes mellitus by health care professionals (HCPs) and the general public. The two conditions unfortunately share ‘diabetes’ within them, although they are completely unrelated and mean very different things.

The challenge for diabetes insipidus patients is when they need hospital attention (A&E, surgery, or on a hospital ward). Many HCPs are unaware of DI and assume the patient has diabetes mellitus. The consequences include their blood sugars being checked, being given ‘diabetic diets’ etc. instead of being given the treatment they need…
