Joyful July! (:

We’re halfway through 2014 and for all of us, it’s likely that the pressures from work and school have kicked in by now. While some of us adapt well to stress, some of us break from the pressure and suffer from mood swings. Stress is something that just sets in and before we know it, we’re feeling unhappy and gloomy over our lack of freedom and time to ourselves for rest, relaxation and for our partners.

Hence, here’s our call for a JOYFUL JULY!

ScratchcardsJul2014

As some of you have heard elsewhere, HAPPINESS IS A CHOICE. While we know that isn’t always the case, there are times when we must make a conscious decision which is happiness.

So, what is joy to you? For us at LoveByte, joy is simply being able to grow old and spend a lifetime with the love of your life, blissfully entering the last stages of your existence while still making beautiful memories together. That requires effort against the odds, for not just a day or two, not weeks, nor months, but years. We can’t say for sure what will happen decades from now. However, what we can do is to pace steadily towards our goal. If ageing with your partner’s your dream too, then make it happen by appreciating him/her everyday. If you aren’t doing so yet, start now. Allow yourself to love and be loved and embrace the joy of it all. Let this July be a joyful one for not just you but your boo too. Create unforgettable memories, have breakfast in bed, have a movie marathon at home…. basically just enjoying the simple pleasures in life and most importantly, each other’s company.

Stressed as you may be, take time out for love. Love brings joy and empowers you in ways no amount of coffee every can. (: Emerge stronger, happier byt he end of July – not just as an individual, but as a couple.

We hope that everyone can live, love, laugh, have joy, be kind, and stay happy this July! :D

With Joy and Love,

We Should Be Dating The ‘Old School’ Way

old-school

The old school way of dating has in many relationships been outdated, as it is seen “uncool” to do. But there are several reasons why we should bring these dating habits back to life, even if it’s just for one night. So start dating your loved one the old school way, here’s why, and how;

1. Dress Nicely

Looking nice means different things for each and everyone one of us, so we are not suggesting to bring out that old fancy prom dress, but to just take some time and effort in the appearance so it’s not your everyday clothes you use for school or work. This is one habit that in today’s world has gone missing when people date. The meet-ups are today of the more casual kind where we show up in our everyday outfits. We should bring back the habits of when you spent time and effort onto your looks before leaving the house to meet up with that special someone. The time and effort and the different style marks that the other person means something special to you, and this is always a good way to start a date.

2. Pick him or her up at the door

No more text messages “I’m here” or “running late, I’ll see you at the movie theatre“. These are very casual and makes meeting up seem more platonic and casual. Go the extra mile of picking up your date at their house, showing up on time in a nicely manner. May sound cheesy, but it does make a difference to take that extra effort of going all the way to their house to pick them up.

3. Bring flowers

Bring flowers or another gift showing your affection to your date. Don’t be afraid that it may be “uncool”, you want the message to g o through that you do care for your date, right? This way they’ll have a memoria of your date as well which just adds a nice touch to it. You’ll know when they’ll come home they’ll see that gift and be reminded of you and your date night… It is definitely a romantic tradition needed to be brought back!

4. Romantic Gestures

Romantic gestures such as writing poems or songs are really things that melt ones heart. Even though all of us might not be Shakespeare or great writers or singers, make something that you have put some effort into. Doesn’t matter if it’s just a handmade card or a small painting that looks like a 3-year old did it. When you have put time and effort onto it, that’s what matters.

5. Turn All Electronics Off

Turn your cellphones off or leave them at home. Take the time to truly spend the night with each other, instead of having that constant buzz of someone calling in the middle of dinner or texting you on whatsapp. Focus on each other, nothing else.

6. Go Dancing, Just For Fun

Today dancing has become all about “grinding” and looking “hot”. What happened to the classic dance moves that didn’t have sexual overtones where you just went out dancing for fun? 

7. Ask permission

Instead of assuming everything, ask for permission. It does make one feel special when someone asks if they can have a second date or if it’s alright that they kiss you goodnight instead of just taking it for granted.

8. Go Steady

Dating has become so difficult. When are two people a couple nowadays? No one seems to know!  The rules have changed and nowadays people rely on signs of being introduced as the boyfriend or girlfriend to other friends, or on Facebook to know whether they are a couple or not. Go back and ask your date instead. Do they want to be your girlfriend or boyfriend, or like they said in the old days, Do you want to go steady with me? It is a romantic gesture to be asked in person rather than assumed or being “asked” on Facebook .Even if you already are established as a couple, this is still adorable to ask!

10 Great Date Ideas for those warm summer days

summerdates

The summer is upon us and this means great weather, sunshine and vacation! So what better than to move your dates outdoors? Here we have gathered some perfect date ideas for those warm summer days for you and your loved one to embark on.

1. Gaze at the Stars

Pack a picnic bag with some food and sweets and maybe a bottle of wine and head out for some star gazing at dusk. Download an app so you know what you are looking at, there are plenty of free ones both for iOS and Android. Discover the skies together and don’t forget to mark down those pretty stars you both enjoyed on LoveByte so you can make it a challenge to who will find them first next time you go out on a stargazing date!

2. Attend an outdoor concert

Especially during the summer and off rain season there’s a bunch of outdoor concerts and festivals around town. Check out when you have the next one in town and head over to listen to some great music and enjoy the outdoors.

3. Get Physical

Go out and go rollerblading, biking or try and learn new tricks on a skateboard. In a lot of cities or nature parks you can rent bikes or rollerblades if you don’t own your own. This date will get your sweat up and have some fun while looking at the sights, whether it’s in your own neighborhood or away.

4. Hit the Beach

This is a classic that can never go wrong. Whether you like to relax and just read a book at the beach snuggled close together or enjoy a more active beach day with surfing, paddling or playing beach volleyball, this date is always a perfect outdoor date. Go there during the day to catch the sun and relax or head out there at night for a late night stroll along the coastline when the beach is almost empty. Stay for the sunset for a more romantic setting and bring along some blankets and sweets. If you stay late, incorporate date idea number one, gaze at the stars!

5. Amusement Park

Handholding, cotton candy and all the fun rides. At an amusement park you can’t go wrong. Head to the funny mirrors room and snap some hilarious photos of yourselves posing in the mirrors, catch the most adrenaline filled rides you can find and play for prizes at the games.

6. Movie Night Out

Yes, we really mean go see a movie outside! Either find a park showing movies or your local drive in theater. If you can’t find neither or prefer to be more alone, pack up your own laptop, some blankets and snacks and head out to the beach or a park and watch a movie. Afterwards go for a stroll or stargaze and enjoy the time outside. Will be so much more special than that normal day sitting on the sofa watching a DVD.

7. Mini Golf

Go practice your put! Have a friendly competition of who can win at the local mini golf. It’s a great way to have some cheap fun and enjoy the outdoors. Head at dusk when the weather is cooler if you’re going in the summer, no point going mid-day when you’ll just be sweating away in the sun!

8. Go Sightseeing

Going sightseeing is something we always do when we are away, but at home we almost never do that, so why not take the opportunity! Go to your local tourist site or check out what lonely planet or Tripadvisor has to say and take a day out to stroll the neighborhoods of your home-town! Bring your camera and take your time noticing details and taking in the areas beauty. To take a more personal approach, why not go visit all the places where you grew up and take a touristic approach to it? Will surely bring you two a lot to talk about and be a great way to get to know each other better.

9. Dinner Outside

You have to eat anyway so why not take the cooking and dining out! Go to your nearby barbecue pit or have a barbecue in your own backyard. Enjoy cooking together outside and bring some chairs or blankets and just spend the night outdoors enjoy each others company cooking together.

10. Go Camping

Whether you go camping on your own balcony, backyard or actually head for the woods, this is a great outdoor date where you can spend the night stargazing, cuddling up together to keep warm and enjoying the outdoors together. If you head for your own balcony, just bring whatever you got at home, blankets, pillows, lights and make it as cozy as you can. You can build a fort using your chairs and pillows or just lay some madrases on the floor and bring pillows and blankets to make it cozier. Don’t forget some food and sweets for your adventure!

Which is your best Date Idea for the summer?
