VIRGO - Dating

WOMAN:

A Virgo woman is earthly and she may seem cold and detached, but underneath the timid, reserved surface lies the real woman, a strong, passionate woman with a great capacity for strong devoted love. She will play hard to get, she is hard to get for she is worried about exposing her emotional vulnerabilities and getting hurt. She requires patience and you will have to court her and work hard to impress her. Once she is in love, it is for the long term. She will be devoted, loyal and make you very happy and even put a little order in your life. Virgo woman is conservative and old-fashioned, a typical woman who is perfect for the man who loves a challenge and likes to take a relationship slowly.


MAN:

The Virgo man has a cool exterior with a sensitive interior. He has tremendous respect for a woman and will treat her like and equal. He likes women who stir his emotions because he is reluctant to express his own emotions, which he tries and this often causes conflict not just inside himself, but it spills out into the relationship. This man takes patience and understanding. He will not get extremely close so do not try to enter his psyche and become closely entangled, this will make him feel threatened. He needs a classy woman who is not impulsive or unconventional. He leads a predictable life and a predictable woman will make him feel safe. He is perfect for the down to earth, conventional woman. He won’t be romantic and sweep you off your feet, but he will be by your side and be very loyal. This man’s sensuality comes out with time. For the woman who wants a stable, solid relationship with a visible, smooth sailing future is perfect for the Virgo man.

Fashion from 1930-1940 

Swing decade of the 1930-ties replaced Jazz decade of the 1920-ties. America and the world swings with Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey. Great Depression made it’s influence on the society, so more conservative approach was in fashion. Age of “flapper look” and “lose-up” attitude of the 20-ties was not accepted anymore. Women skirts became longer and the waist-line was back to it’s “normal position”. Throughout the 1930-ties the most important influence to fashion was coming from American cinema. It was Hollywood’s golden age with Clark Gable, Marlene Dietrich, Cary Grant, Bette Davis, Errol Flyn, Greta Garbo, Fred Astaire.It’s seems that fashion could no longer live without Hollywood and the Hollywood couldn’t live anymore without fashion……..

I saw this on Facebook and I couldn’t help but think…
1) I don’t remember anyone attacking Tim Tebow?
2) Caitlyn Jenner is being referred to as a hero in part BECAUSE of shit like this. She’s having to put up with thousands of ignorant hateful opinions every minute of her life including death threats. All in order to feel comfortable in her own body and live her life the way she wants to. That sounds pretty brave to me.
3) THEY ASK HER WHO MADE HER DRESS!!!! Welcome to the world of being a female celebrity. Your opinions no longer matter, only who you are wearing and who you are dating do.

Hey, I think you're a really cool, approachable person, and I hope this isn't weird, but basically 99% of people I'm surrounded by are super conservative, old fashioned, anti-sex ed etc., and I was wondering if you could give me just like a basic kissing/making out 101? Sorry, I know this is really weird, but I kinda like this guy and he likes me and I have no idea what to do if we get to that point and I'm a little curious but a lot nervous (I'm a girl btw)

No it’s not weird at all! Sorry you’re around people like that though, that sucks :( (I take it you’re the same anon from before, sorry I didn’t understand your question before!) 

There’s not really a strict… step by step guide tbh but I can give you a few pointers? 

  • if it’s your first kiss, you might want to start soft?  You just angle your head so you don’t bump noses and go for it. 
  • Tongue is good in moderation. Start slow and gradually work into it if you’re feeling it
  • Hands you can involve if you want to. Shoulders or hair is a good place to ground yourself. Back or waist if you want to pull the other person closer. 
  • Breaks!! Breaks are good. You can pull apart for a few moments to switch which side your head is leaning or to kiss their neck ect. 
  • If it would make you feel more comfortable and you think a kiss/make out might be coming, brush your teeth beforehand or chew some mint gum. (tactfully offer the other person a piece too) 

Just remember that all kisses/make outs are different and there’s not really any right way to do it. You’ll probably fall into some kind of rhythm and don’t be afraid to say stop if it gets too intense or if you feel uncomfortable. Communication is the most important thing in every aspect of a relationship. Chances are, he’s equally as nervous as you might be and just have fun and enjoy yourself!!  As is with everything, you’ll get better with practice ;) 

drew’s disney’s descendants auDashing XIV, Prince of Caravell, son of King Charming VI and Queen Cinderella

Caravell has a lush landscape, from wild, storm-lashed coastlines to green, rolling hills, from fields of wildflowers to exquisite palace architecture; this is the land they describe in fairy tales. The people of this land are conservative and old-fashioned but they are not without their charm. The coat of arms of Caravell is a silver horse on a sky-blue field, and their words are “Whatever You Wish For.”

Not long after taking the crown, King Charming VI, son of King Dashing XIII and Queen Marie, married the love of his life, a lady of the people he met at a royal ball, Queen Cinderella, daughter of Charles and Emmeline. They both lost their mothers to illnesses at a young age. Cinderella’s father had remarried a wicked woman with two daughters of her own, and King Dashing was delighted to welcome Cinderella into his home and acted as a father to her in the brief time they knew each other. As he was dying, King Dashing passed onto his son and daughter-in-law the notion that they are better together than they could ever be apart, and this inspired the idea of uniting the Nine Kingdoms. They intended to join hands with the royal families of their sister kingdoms, Dorwood and Fairedge, and grow from there, but were surprised when the royal family of Fairedge resisted. Nonetheless, when King Adam and Queen Belle of Rosencourt were able to find a balance with Queen Aurora and Prince Phillip years later, King Charming and Queen Cinderella didn’t bat an eye before bending the knee. They have always been protective of their son, Prince Dashing XIV, and have therefore always been extremely supportive of the Isle of the Lost, but in the interest of maintaining the balance that has been struck in Auradon, quickly agreed to send Dashing to the summit.

Dashing XIV is a handsome and charismatic young man, although he did not escape the streak of narcissism that runs in the royal family of Caravell. His mother instilled in him a belief that anything is possible but this notion may have been corrupted ever so slightly by the paternal side of the family. Dashing tends to think not only that anything he wishes can happen to him but also that it should happen to him. He was a troublemaker as a child, always throwing the blame and never taking responsibility, and these traits have followed him into adulthood. At Rosencourt, Dashing finds himself frequently at odds with King Beau. He becomes wrapped up in Princess Lilith’s ambition to become High Queen of Auradon but is conflicted between his own desire to become High King and his desire for Lilith herself.

We thought that we could take Taylor — who is a beautiful, beautiful girl but has been a little bit more conservative in her fashion choices — and turn her into an Hedi Slimane rock n’ roll girl,“ explained Wintour. “She was completely up for it and loved it, and is going to hopefully continue with this look.

Maxson managed to catch us just as we were leaving, and now we’re having a standoff.

I’m beginning to think the Brotherhood of Steel is the Fallout equivalent to “Old-fashioned conservatives who constantly contradict themselves”.

They despise and condemn technology, yet they use high-tech Power Armour and they have the Prydwen…soooo….
