Samantha's Dating Ponder-Shedding for the Wedding

Every bride dreams of their wedding day; the perfect venue, the perfect hair, the perfect dress. Even grooms envision their big day and happily ever after. And more often than not, people go on crazy diets to fit into the perfect dress/tux. They go on crash diets, eat unusual foods and start to act and do things they wouldn't normally do. How do these new behaviors effect the big day? What do we really think of "shedding for the wedding?"  The new tendencies could carry into the new marriage and then the person your partner with whom you fell in love could be completely different. It is important to stay true to yourself so that your marriage and love will flourish. Even though you may be trying to shed for the one big day, make sure you don't shed your true emotions and personality in the process.

How to tell if your man will leave you

Relationships are a little prickly. Some days things are great and other days, you feel like your relationship is going to end imminently. Sometimes you feel like you are the luckiest person alive because you have finally found your soulmate and other days, you find yourself wondering what you ever saw in him in the first place. However, setting your own feelings of sometime indecision aside, do you ever find yourself obsessing over what he is thinking? Wondering if he is truly happy in the relationship or if he might just up and leave you for a shinier, brighter, newer model?
I am a professional matchmaker and here are some things to consider if you are trying to figure out if he is around for the long-haul or angling to jump ship as soon as he has the opportunity:
-A woman's intuition is very strong and often times correct; if you sense he is walking towards the door, he probably is thinking about it.
-You need to watch for signs that he is in it for the long haul. Does he call you his girlfriend? Do you operate like a single unit? Is there an "us" mentality or a "me" mentality?
-You need to notice how he acts with you with regard to his friends. Does he bring you around them a lot, does he talk about you to them? Does he brag about you to them? These are all good signs. Or do they barely know your name?
-You need to notice how he acts

Samantha's Dating Thought-Add More Fun to Date Night!

Tired of the same old date night at a local restaurant? Well, head to a comedy club instead! Whether you prefer improvisations or stand-up comedy, there is something for all personalities to enjoy. Comedy clubs usually serve dinner and can provide a more intimate setting between you and your beau because you will be sharing many laughs and whispering about how funny the performances are. If you want to plan ahead, do some research and see when your favorite comedians are in town. Most comedy clubs feature large tables so gather your old friends to share a great time had by all! You and your honey will be sure to remember all the laughs you shared which, in turn, will strengthen your relationship and improve your bond with each other.

Samantha's Dating Ponder-For Better or For Worse?

The two of you have been in a relationship for an extended period of time. The love is definitely there. So will getting married after a long term relationship change things for the better or for the worse? It is important for couples who have been together for so long to discuss the way their relationship is and how it may change once they walk down the aisle. Important topics such as money, kids and family should be discussed. And make sure to keep the sex alive once you say "I do!"

One celebrity couple finally decided to take the plunge this week. Six years and six kids later, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have finally decided to tie the knot. Many sources say the two finally decided to start planning a wedding now that the kids are older and keep asking them about marriage. But will it work? What do you think? Will Brad and Angelina's perfect Hollywood family finally be complete?

Samantha's Dating Tips-Meeting Your Boyfriend's Ex

Have you ever wondered how it will be, if and when, you meet your boyfriend's ex? Have you wondered the right things to say, the right things to do and how to act?
I am a Professional Matchmaker and here's what I know...
1. You can be nice. Keep in mind that you have him right now, she doesn't, so there is no reason to be snippy.

2. Sizing her up will get you nowhere. Sometimes there is no rhyme or reason for chemistry. If you are scratching your head in disbelief that he was into her and now he's into you, don't bother, you will never be able to figure it out.

3. Don't do the old contrast and compare because chances are, this will just make you feel insecure. Just feel confident about who you are and the connection that the two of you are having in the present.

4. If you feel a little jealousy about his connection to her or the fact that another woman knows him as well as you do, that's okay. Feeling jealous and/or insecure is natural, but don't let it send you into a funk and just ride out the evening; it will end soon enough.

5.Be prepared for some reminiscing
