Plus size clothes are expensive and most fit like a bin liner, a badly patterned one!

The 5 Hidden Secrets Of Effective Communication

The 5 Hidden Secrets Of Effective Communication: Humans are not clear communicators, by and large. We all think we communicate clearly with each other both in writing and verbally – but it’s astonishing when you really analyze peoples’ communications and then what they truly wanted to convey and realize how different what they thought they said is from what was understood. My best friend is actually a Master Communicator (MC), which often drives me nuts. She’s constantly asking for clarification on things I think are so obvious that it almost feels like she’s being obtuse at times. Yet the more I come to understand the importance of being crystal clear in my writing and speaking, the more I comprehend why she does what she does. It’s not to be a nitpicker… it’s a way to teach the other person that they are not being nearly as clear in expressing their thought as they believe they are. A stark example of this for the past year has been my landlord. In roughly ninety percent of our conversations, I have a very hard time understanding what he’s telling me. He speaks fast, his sentences are hastily constructed and incomplete…he just doesn’t think before speaking. It all makes for a major job just to get through a conversation with him and come out the other end with any sort of idea what we just talked about. My MC friend came to the following conclusion: he thinks he’s communicating better than he is.
Humans are not clear communicators, by and large. We all think we communicate clearly with each other both in writing and verbally – but...

Why Do You Feel Sad & Guilty After Sex?

Why Do You Feel Sad & Guilty After Sex: Descriptions of “post-coital sadness” go all the way back to our ancient annals of medicine. Greek physician and philosopher Galen once observed, “Every animal is sad after coitus except the human female and the rooster.” That post-sex or orgasm feeling of depression, sadness, angst, and general ennui can last anywhere from five minutes to two hours. The most recent study that was done came out in October 2015 and it found that among the quite limited white, heterosexual female study population that it interviewed, 46% of people interviewed had experienced it at some point and a little over 5% experienced it on a regular basis. We don’t have any good data on how prevalent this is among people who are not straight, white, cis-gender women but anecdotally we do know this happens within the broader population. Do you think if empirically overlooking men’s experiences with this have to do with our stereotypes about women being more emotionally invested in sex and also being likelier to cry while we assume that men always – always – always want sex.
