5 Things You Can Do TODAY to Avoid Loving a Loser

- Unless he's a sociopath, a guy will usually tell you pretty quickly if he wants kids, a long-term relationship and marriage. So if you think you've found the perfect guy and he tells you he doesn't want kids, but you really do, believe him. Don't waste your precious time trying to change his mind or convince him that having kids is the way to go. Move on, because he's not the one for you.

2. YOU DON'T NEED THAT MANY SIGNS - Once you start seeing signs that the guy you're dating isn't the one for you, move on. Don't wait around for months or even years hoping things will change. Life is too short and if you stick around waiting for more signs that you're loving a loser, you're going to waste precious time you could be spending with the man of your dreams.

- You know that little feeling you get in the pit of your stomach that tells you something isn't right? Don't ignore it. So many women do that and end up heartbroken. You may think that your heart has already been broken so many times that you don't even trust yourself when it comes to guys. Don't worry. Your gut is impartial and will always steer you in the right direction. That's why Mother Nature gave it to us!

- If you're dating that you've got to set appointments weeks in advance to see or if you're the one that does all of the calling, texting and giving, you're not in a healthy relationship. Don't waste your precious time chasing a guy who's not into you. If you're the one calling him all of the time and he's not calling you, he's trying to send you a message - move on!

- Some guys tend to use the Internet as a place to have an alternate life with many different women who are only available in cyberspace. Google your guy's name from time to time and see what's he doing or has done online. It would horrible to be dating a guy and then find out through a Google search that he was into something sordid that you definitely are not into!

Popular superstitions

Broken mirror


One of the most popular and oldest beliefs, this one is attributed to various sources. One version goes that black cats forebode doom; another goes that black cats are demons in disguise; and yet another goes that they were once pets of witches that turned into witches and hence they are witches in disguise.

Contrary to worldwide beliefs about the black cat, the Japanese consider a black cat lucky.

So the next time you see a black cat you decide whether you want turn back or walk ahead.



Another age-old belief delves around one having hiccups. An old wives' tale is that a near or dear one is thinking of you. It may or may not be true but do not forget to sip water lest you continue having hiccups.

Crow cawing


A crow cawing in front of a house is considered to be a sign of arriving guests. Whether that's good or bad, depends on the guests!

Black cat crossing your path


Long long ago when there were no mirrors, people looked at their reflections in water. One's reflection was considered to be like one's soul and as such if the reflection appeared contorted then the soul was considered broken. Even after the advent of mirrors the practice continues. A broken mirror distorts your reflection and is thus considered inauspicious.

Horse shoe


In ancient Greece, a horse shoe suspended at the entrance of a house was considered a means of letting good luck in. It was important that the horse shoe was suspended with the open side up. Suspending it with the open side down would mean letting go all the good luck.

13 and Friday the 13th


The number 13 has always been and is still considered to be sinister by many. For some, going to office or carrying out any auspicious task is out of the question on the 13th day of a month. Many others consider only Friday the 13th to be inauspicious.

Friday the 13th's bad reputation goes back to the days when under pressure from King Philip IV of France, Pope Clement V had ordered his men to capture and burn all the Templar knights, a brigade of powerful crusaders who the king felt were a threat to him.

People who fear Friday the 13th are referred to as Paraskevidekatriaphobics. And the fear of the number 13 is called triskaidekaphobia.

Another eerie concept associated with the number 13 is that if 13 diners set out to eat, one of them is bound to die within a year.

Keeping fingers crossed


This popular notion has a religious context to it. The idea was to make a wish and keep your fingers crossed to form a cross till your wish came true.

A dog howling


A dog's howling was considered eerie because the howls were believed to be an announcement of death. The canines with their superior sense of smell could sense deaths from a considerable distance.

Washing hair


Washing hair on a Thursday is not considered good and in many homes men and women put off washing hair to other days of the week.

Good dreams


Dreaming of good and auspicious things is good. This could be dreams of gods, auspicious animals and birds and everything pleasant. On the other hand, dreaming of things like meteorites, earthquakes, and metals is considered bad.

Touch wood


We often say 'touch wood' not knowing what that implies. Many years back, people believed that Gods lived in the trees and always touched the trunk of a tree and made a wish and touched the trunk again once if what was wished for came true.
