Hello, I need advice please for two things? 1: There is this boy I really like but he doesnt like me back that way, he even knows I like him. I have dreams about him and I miss him or wonder where he is when he is not on the bus. I really like him and I want to know what and how I can catch his attention. 2: I am pretty atractive exsept for my weight and some acne but no guys take interest in me. I am nice and even helpful but nobody likes me in that way. Am I doing some thing wrong, or am I not pretty enough? I just want somebody I can be happy with.....can you please help me? Thx~Rio <3 :)

Okay so i have this crush on a girl and so does this other guy. He asked her on a date but she hasnt responded yet. I decided that i didnt want to lose her so i invited her to chat with me (this is all on the nook). What should i do? I dont want anything to happen to her cause the other guy who likes her is NOT a gentleman.

Dear Ms. Cupid, Well, I've sorta liked this guy since the beginning of the school year. I mean, we talk and joke around, and it's mostly a funny , friendly/shy/amusing relationship. I think he likes me, because I've caught him looking at me more than a few times and ALWAYS somehow talks to me(he doesn't shut up, even in Trigonometry). I guess I like him back, but I don't know what to do.....Help!

I received a complimentary copy of this book book from Tyndale House Publishers for review purposes. I was expecting something different from this book, but as I continued to read it I found some parts that were very helpful and others that I am not so sure that I agree with. The book is broken down into sections of stupid things men and women do all in the course of love, be it dating, looking for love or in marriages. The word for each of these things is cupidity. It is broken down into emotional acts, mental acts, physical acts, social acts and spiritual acts. One of their main points is that love is not a feeling because God commanded that we all love one another (as in loving your neighbor as yourself) so if it can be commanded it is not a feeling. Another is that you have to forgive or you cannot move ahead in your own life, but will remain stuck. If someone asks for your forgiveness and you refuse to get over whatever happened then you are the problem not the issue that needs to be forgiven (although if it is domestic violence that is a whole different issue that they give a chapter to). One of the big things that stuck with me from reading this book is something that I have read before, you can't change someone else and the more you try to change someone else the less likely they are to change, but you can change yourself. So if you are unhappy with how things are going in your marriage or relationship think about changing the way you are reacting to the other person or some of the actions you yourself are taking and see how different outcomes become available. You can't make someone change, but changes you make in yourself can lead to changes in the other person. Even changing your attitude about something can have a large ripple effect on your life and those around you. If you recognize that there is a higher power that you can go to for help you will feel less alone and more empowered. Don't try to take away other people's chance to work through obstactles because those obstacles might have been put there for a reason.

Cupidity By Hayley and Michael DiMarco Single? Married? Stupid? You're a smart person. You really are. Most of the time. So why are you having such trouble making sense of your love life? Whether you're single and wondering where "the one" is hiding, head over heels in a new dating relationship and vowing that this time it will work, or finding that married life isn't the thrilling adventure you'd once anticipated.you might be surprised to discover that the answer may lie in your own Cupidity or stupid love. In this book, Hayley and Michael DiMarco identify 50 of the most common acts of Cupidity, ways to avoid them and learn from them, and some surprising things God has to say about relationships. I must say that this is what attracted me to want to review this book. I think we've all be in relationships in our lives where we can look back and see some of the mistakes that were made on both sides that prevented our relationships from enduring the tests of time. It is these life lessons that are captured in this book, dealt with from Biblical scripture references as well as real life examples of how these will keep us from moving forward in our relationships. Some of the areas that are discussed are believing romance equals love, failing to notice him, taking charge from both male and female perspectives, failing to provide, using sex to get love, shacking up, enabling abuse, dressing to get attention, having friends of the opposite sex, refusing to apologize, loving someone of a different faith, and disrespecting your significant other in public are just a small handful of the topics that are discussed. I would highly recommend this book to anyone just getting ready to begin dating, involved in a relationship and even struggling in marriage to see if some of the things we are doing in our relationships right now, isn't working towards making it all God intended it to be. I received a complimentary copy of Cupidity to review from Tyndale House Publishers. You can learn more about the book including where to purchase a copy of the book at this link.

Ok, Cupidity=Stupid Love. I can't tell you how many times I've done something stupid because I've loved someone. This book is great because it is actually written by a married couple. In Leiu of Valentine's Day, I think this is a great book to read! Hayley and Michael did a wonderful job writting this exspecially how they added humor to this book. I give it an A+++Must Read :) Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of the book to do this review. This review is my honest opinion.

Have you ever done something stupid for love? I am more than happy to count myself in that category. If only I had the wisdom of Michael and Hayley DiMarco before I fell into the grasp of stupid cupid! Cupidity: 50 Stupid Things People Do for Love is the latest book by this husband and wife writing team. As the title implies, Cupidity contains fifty chapters of the most common mistakes people make in relationships, broken down into five categories. The chapters include such topics as being too comfortable with one another, having friends with benefits, playing God, shacking up, and using romance to get sex. Each chapter is short and concise and often contains a fun box with random facts. Not only is Cupidity humorous, but it is packed full of Scriptural truth. The entire book is laden with good things. On a less important note, the entire book is printed in easy to read red ink. I found that touch to be charming. I read Cupidity in two afternoons and looked forward to the next time I could read it. It is an engaging and easy read, but that does not lessen its practical value. Cupidity is one of the best books on relationships that I have ever read. It is not just geared for singles either; whether you are unattached, dating, engaged, or married, I have no doubt that you will benefit from Cupidity. Priced at $14.99, Cupidity is worth your money. Read it and save yourself from cupidity! This book was provided for my review by Tyndale House Publishers.

The book is about learning what constitutes "Cupidity" in a relationship. According to the authors there are emotional, mental,physical,social and spiritual cupidity. From the first chapter "..acts of Cupidity aren't disastrous, and they are most often reversible.They're what some like to call opportunities to "fail forward." Every failure at love is just a chance for you to learn more about what not to do. And that's not just the case in dating; the first year of marriage is often full of close-quarters Cupidity." Cupidity is about the differences between a man and a woman and how each gender handles certain things like women wanting romance and a man wanting a soulmate. Each chapter gives advice as to how to avoid these Cupidity challenges, aka stupid love, and to have the relationship with your significant other that you want . Along with the relationship advice on how to deal with the cupidity there is spiritual advice as well. A lot of quotes from the bible to help you on your way to changing your lives. I found, for the most part, this book to be interesting. Did I disagree with some of it? Yes I did, I have been married to my husband for 27 years and together for 30. We raised four children together from the cradle and assisted them in flying from the nest. A marriage is a partnership and both genders are equal in my mind. The book states,as in the Bible,that a woman should honor and obey a man. I think that the man and woman should honor and obey each other. Again, my opinion. This book was easy to read and uplifting in a way, but not a book that I would use in my life. Would I recommend it to others? Yes I would. There was some humor in it and like I said a lot of reference and quotes from the bible that that in itself helped me to understand the message that the authors were trying to tell the reader. Oh yes, I liked cover and the font is a maroon color instead of the usual black print....This book would make a great gift for the upcoming Valentine's Day!!!
