So guys, take it as a positive sign and make your interracial dating profile stronger to attract more women to date, here are some of our tips to strengthen your online dating game.

Be the true you on interracial dating site
Your profile is going to be your first impression, before having a conversation with you the person is going to accept you on the basis on your profile, here are some of the tips to create a compelling profile.

Honesty: interracial dating is quite different from the general dating game; people at interracial dating sites are more cautious and curious about your true behavior. Being honest with your expectation and your true nature is the best way to find love on interracial dating sites.

Purpose: people at interracial dating sites are looking for bit extra; they will be expecting to know the purpose of your life and purpose behind what brought you to try interracial dating.

The sense of humor: a good sense of humor is a guarantee that you are going to keep him/her happy and you are not a kind of person who stresses over every small thing.

Exchange your phone number if possible
If you like the behavior of the person you are talking to and if you are truly impressed with the things he do then don’t wait for the right moment to ask for contact. You can ask for the number just after 2-3 conversations, no one like to drag the communication over chat.

Do not set very high standards

Staying patient is the key to acquire success in an interracial relationship; you won't be getting an eligible partner on the very first day of enrolling yourself on the online dating platform. Instead of setting the high standard and discarding every profile on the basis on the first impression is a wrong idea, if you are serious about finding a suitable partner then get into the conversation with as many people as you can. Getting in a conversation will make you understand the general behavioral pattern or people from the different community and it will also make you understand their expectations.

Stay patient and open minded

Tighten-up your seat belts guys you are going to experience all new phase your life. You need to prepare yourself to stay patient and open-minded towards their culture and behavior, most of the time people don’t know how to talk and behave to someone unfamiliar to their community.

For the first few conversations; it is advised to stay away from indulging into a serious conversation about politics, stereotypes, culture, etc. instead of getting involved in serious communication you can talk about some interesting stuff like favorite movie, favorite marvel character, favorite music, last place you visited, hobbies, etc. In my case I prefer to have a rapid fire round, this gives me the idea about the general behavior patterns and preferences of a person.

Do not hesitate to ask your dating partner to meet you

If you had a healthy conversation with the person then there is nothing you should be waiting for, you can move ahead with asking him/her for a first casual date. There are some of the precautions that you should be taking before meeting someone for the first time:

• Always have your first date in public places, like meeting up for a casual coffee or lunch date.
• Its best advised to pre-plan everything and follow every precautionary measure.
• Let your closed one know about your first date and let them know about the place you are going to and the personal details of the person with whom you have planned a date.
• Leave if you feel uncomfortable. Period. At any point of date if you get the feeling like the person you are having a date is not right person then feel free to leave at any point.
• Keep some self-defense equipment like pepper spray or stun gun.

We appreciate your choice of choosing the online dating platform to find your dream date but your personal security is in your own hand and we advise every user to take some precautionary measures until you feel comfortable with the person.

How Blogging Changed Wall Street: A Look

Wall Street is one area in America that is known to everybody. Whether it be in history or the current financial scenario, it makes its mark everywhere. It houses almost all major financial headquarters in the United States of America. Professionals all over the world look to them for zeal, motivation and dedication.

There is no doubt that the financial world has undergone some radical changes with development in technology. Previously, bankers and brokers depended on their firm's brand value to impress clients without revealing a lot of information about themselves. Now, with the boom of social media and blogging, banks are trying to be super transparent online in order to attract more clients. It isn’t just the blogging work that is changing though – the whole online world is witnessing a change. For instance, there are more people who are trying out Rivers casino bonus code today more than ever. The trend is only going to grow further, as internet connectivity and speeds improve the world over. Along with all these, comes the need for a good and secure banking system that can protect user money easily.

The old-school banking system and the digital age banking method provide completely different client experience. Reading blogs and staying aware of social media helps people become aware of a bank's strengths and weaknesses before they even become a member.

The rise of blogs and social media:

Even a few years ago, there were not a large number of financial blogs making the circles and being certified by financial professionals. However, the number has risen radically in the last few years.

The difference between new-age blogs and other mainstream outlets which are run by major magazines or journalists lies in the objective. While the former does not depend on profit, the other is mainly motivated by financial gain.

Blogs are run by real experts who have left or are continuing to leave a mark in the financial world. These people have gathered enough experience to feel confident about advising other customers. They believe that their honest and transparent opinion and views might be useful to someone out there, which is why they go public with their content without hoping for a profit.

While big names in the world of finance do have a lot of value, the times are certainly changing. As people are becoming more aware of finance as a subject, they are beginning to look for more trustworthy and credible sources. The names of industry giants are not enough to assure them about a bank's performance in relation to its customers.

In their search for sources to place their faith in, people are stumbling upon such blogs. After vetting the creators and their penchant for research, customers are becoming regular followers of these blogs and their associated social media. The transparent work of financial experts can be identified easily.

Once upon a time, blogging and social media qualified as hobbies. Today, they are two of the best tools in the hands of a financial professional.

How Social Media Killed The Blog (But Not This One... Sorta Kinda)

When I started this blog in the dark ages (circa 2007!) the objective was simple: I wanted to share opinions with people far and wide, and most importantly, I wanted them to share their opinions on my opinions. Because a blog with no readers is just a diary.

While I definitely took some inspiration from other blogs that I frequented, once I found my voice he content began to pile up. I basically just wrote about what I liked, from sports, to music, to social commentary. While things started slowly (I mean "me and my sister-in-law were the only readers" slow) I caught some fortunate breaks along the way that fueled by an unexpectedly popular post called AverageBro Blogs Live! From Jena, LA. In it, I posted some very contrarian thoughts about the Jena 6 case in which I noticed some distubing behavior amongst those who descended upon the sleepy Louisiana town to protest the unfair jailing of six black men for the beating of a white classmate. The story was, in many ways, the embryonic stage of the Black Lives Matter Movement. The first social justice case of the social media age.

My critique was mostly about the performance art nature of all the protests and some of the high profile media members and civil rights icons to ran the protest. Much about that (not the undue treatment of the kids) irked me, and I said so. It was not a very popular opinion, but it's one that I stand by and which oddly made me a go-to voice for people who agreed and disagreed with me.

From there, the blog grew immensely. I got some special co-signs that really increased my exposure. The collection of regular commenters was well over one hundred, which made a community in and of itself. International media outlets started to quote me. Daily hits reached the 10,000 mark with regularity. I got opportunities to do national radio, guest podcasts, and perhaps most importantly, make good money writing pieces for other far more reputable sites thanks to an enterprising editor who saw the value in my "tell it like it is" style and brought me along with her as a freelancer as her career advanced. The whole thing culminated with a truly bewildering interview with ESPN because some nitwit at Reuters picked my story about Diddy's kid getting a football scholarship to UCLA on a slow news Friday.

I had officially arrived.

At this fork in the road, I could have really really dug in more and probably turned writing into a full time job. I have a great career as an engineer that I love (and which pays well) but who wouldn't wanna make money talkin' shit if it in theory paid somewhere in the same ballpark (and I'm not sayin' it would, but thinking out loud here)?

Among the many reasons why I didn't is because by this same time, social media (specifically Twitter) had become the go-to location for instantaneous sharing of thoughts. While I always prided myself on being someone who could take a story idea and turn it into a fully sourced, well written blog post in under 20 minutes (a quality my editors loved), nothing beat the interactive nature of a snarky tweet.

I continued blogging, although for many reasons unrelated to writing my frequency dipped (as did admittedly the quality of my posts) but found myself spending far more time on Twitter for very aforementioned reasons. It was like an Easy Button for sharing thoughts, and eventually I found myself spending so much time on it that I'd go weeks without updating the blog beyond putting an "open discussion" post for the regulars who hadn't left or followed me to Twitter themselves.

And then, an odd thing happened: I quit Twitter.

The reasons are many (and yes, unrelated to writing) but I realized I was spending far more time in a virtual world talking with people I didn't know that those in physically surrounding me everyday. While leaving Twitter cold turkey is easy, doing the same to a blog you'd spend over a decade regularly penning long form thoughts for wasn't. Plus, there was the small matter of me hosting plenty of ads here, which gave me a little pocket change on the side. It didn't make cents (see what I did there) to shut down, so I decided I'd keep it here and reap the periodic benefits of a new ad. Why not?

That said, I owed my (still visiting) readers an explanation. And just like that, the blog was comatose. With the exception of a few new posts when I really had to get something off my chest, the only new stuff here for the past couple of years has been ads. I've moved on to periodically sharing thoughts on Facebook, which I've found to be a far less engaged community than what once existed here, but otherwise I get my fix by talking to real people now. It's just better that way.

I'm not saying there's no value in social media, or that it's the sole purpose for me ending this blog. There were plenty of life related reasons (ie: a 3rd child, a day job that grew exponentially more complex and time consuming, etc.) for this. Likewise, many of my contemporaries who began blogging around the same time have since graduated on the real, full paying media gigs. While I'm happy for all of them, that for many economic reasons was never my end game.

Do I miss having a blog? Yes, I do. Sometimes I wish I'd simply chosen to use whatever energy I had maintaining this community instead of splitting it with Twitter (although that was certainly the case with most bloggers). We had something special here, and I in many ways regret just abandoning that. But life, as they say, doesn't have a rewind button. Most of the regulars have long since left, and the blog seldom gets more than a couple hundred hits a day.

But if there's one thing I don't regret, it's keeping the blog alive. Sometimes I'll wonder "what did I think about" whatever random event happened in 2011, or how I reviewed a movie when it came out. And lo and behold, since I wrote about basically everything for a full decade, there's a good chance I penned a post about it that I can just pull right up. It's like a time machine into your thoughts. It's sorta kinda cool, and the kinda thing you hope your kids might wanna read someday.

So while the blog is dead, the blog lives on.
