7 Major Reasons Why Guys Won’t Call You After Making Love

Seeing this title, You may wonder why a website like Sugarmummies.org talks on issues not pertaining to Sugar Mummies. Well, give me a moment please, I want to show you, WHY even after making Love with a Guy, and thinking that you nailed it, they refuse to call you.

You noticed, that after having fun and crazy night when the man does not text you back, it leaves you all puzzled, angry, surprised and agitated.

If you are wondering why your man or the guy whom you had shared a bed with, is totally refusing to call or text you back, here are some reasons, major reasons why He won’t call you again.

These are the major reasons why the guy has not called you or texted back after sleeping with you. It is much better to wait for a while, or take the bull by the Horn and asked the guy/man, to know the reason, rather than fretting about the issue.

Reasons WHY Men Refuses To Call Or Text After Sleeping with Me

He is Busy With Work

This is the first excuse you should give this man, except you know him deep down, that he’s either not working, or he is his own boss.

However, one major reason why he may have not yet called or text you, is that he’s having a hectic day in work. Do not jump to any conclusions, as your man might be busy with work and the workload is too much.

Exercise a little patient. He may be planning to call you after work, before you start calling, crying and cursing him.

He Is Not Serious.

It does not take rocket science to know this. We’re living in the 21st century and there are literally, 1 million playboys, who don’t give a single thought after sleeping with Ladies. To you, it’s a Love time with someone you truly love and respect.

But to him, it’s a different story altogether. This might be a casual love session for him and he has moved on.

Don’t feel bad, there are some guys who are just wired like this, and don’t care a dime what happens next, after leaving the bed.

He Maybe Sick.

Yes, this may be another reason why he has not YET, reach out to you. He may genuinely just be down with fever and is just simply too tired physically to talk. (Depending on the exercise you guys both did, and his workload).

All you need to do is to just wait, maybe he would call you back eventually!

He Has Somebody Else.

One of the biggest fear of Most ladies have after falling for a guy and sleeping quality time with him is this particular reason! He may have made a deal with his friend, or made you a conquest!

He soon realized that he already has his girlfriend, and won’t want to break up with her, immediately after sharing your bed.

Sad but true. There are some guys who after sleeping with a Lady, suddenly realizes that it is just a mistake and he does not want to repeat it in his life again. Which is one big reason why he is not contacting you anymore?

Feeling Awkward

True. You may be his crush or someone he truly dislikes. Actually, this emotion excludes the feeling of guilt. He actually might not be feeling guilty about the whole thing.

But certainly, he might be feeling awkward about what happened between you guys and is still thinking of what to say to you.

He Did Not Like It

Sorry to burst your bubbles, but he may just feel like, you didn’t reach his expectation. Most guys always place certain expectations on Ladies they slept with, and if you did not live up to his expectations, it may be one major reason why he is not keen on texting or calling you back.

Does Not Want To Take Responsibility

You may courageously say that he’s Afraid of taking responsibility. In the heat of the period, before you guys did it, he might have been prepared for anything, like taking responsibility, etc.

He may think that after this the relationship would get serious, or you might get pregnant. And he is not yet ready to take the responsibility of it yet and that is why he scooted himself before it’s too late.

However, the final conclusion is this. It may be hard for you to do this, but try calling him after 24 hours, and hear him talk. If he didn’t mention what transpires between the both of you, ask him why he refuses to call or text back.

Eating These 5 Foods Every Day Will Take Years Off Your Face (Yes, Really)

When it comes to getting younger, there are quite a lot of articles on this topic, but are these articles genuine enough to be taken seriously?

What is your source of information on this topic?

Before answering your question, I would love to point out some basic facts when it comes to skincare, we all know that a combination of:

  • Sunscreen,
  • Anti-aging creams,
  • Semi-regular exfoliation

Do help massively and help us ease into the aging process. But as Reader’s Digest points out, you can also eat your way to smooth, wrinkle-free skin by avoiding certain foods and eating others much more. “While you’re digesting [protein-rich foods], your body breaks protein down into amino acids to help build cells back up,” it writes. “Having plenty of protein-rich foods available in your body makes it easier to repair and rebuild skin cells and the collagen that gives your skin structure.”

 Reader’s Digest highly recommends avoiding excessive caffeine and sugar, and went further to suggests the following five foods to actually help your body fight wrinkles:

Eating These 5 Foods Every Day Will Take Years Off Your Face

Garlic: It’s no longer news the potentials contained in garlic. “This pungent herb is packed with skin-protecting antioxidants which is medically called polyphenols, which helps in the protection of your skin from free radicals, the unstable molecules that break down collagen.”

Raspberries: The 2nd food you should try eating everyday is Raspberries. “These type of Berries have more antioxidants than any other fruit or vegetable currently in the world. Those antioxidants are your skin’s savior, protecting your skin against wrinkle-causing skin damage.”

Olive oil: If you do read articles on solution to ache, pimples, etc, you’ll noticed that Olive Oil is always recommended in resolving aches and pimples. This certainly shows you how powerful this oil is in combating aging and wrinkling factors. “This healthy oil is loaded with oleic acid, a fatty acid which ensures that the skin remain soft by keeping cell membranes fluid. Its vitamin E and polyphenols also help your skin look young and clear.”

Salmon: “The omega-3 fatty acids in salmon, which is highly recommended for the heart, also works wonder on the skin. The Omega 3 fatty acid which is contained in Salmon also keep cell membranes fluid to help give your skin youthful smoothness. Eat at least two four-ounce servings of salmon every week.”

Beans: The last on this list but not the least, is Beans. “People who eat the most beans, fish, vegetables, and olive oils have the fewest wrinkles, which sum up about 90% of the foods we recommended in this article. This research was concluded by one Australian study of people in Australia, Sweden, and Greece.”

So what do you think?

Have you be eating these foods or just plainly distaste some of the above mentioned foods? I would really love to hear from you regarding this issue.

24 Types Of Men Who are Worth Giving A Chance

The truth should be said and honestly, let’s face it – there are a lot of guys out there that are just flat out not worth the precious time you give them, it’s certainty that they will end up breaking your heart. Even though it’s easy to group men into a collective bunch, there are actually lots of different type of men who are worth it.

Here on this list, I will be sharing with you, the top 24 Guys who are worth giving a chance. So we know there are guys who definitely aren’t worth your time, but here’s the real question.

Are there guys worth your time?

Yes, I can confidentially inform you that they are.

Here are 21 types of men that you should probably give an extra chance to if they come into your life:

men worth giving chance

A man who proposes Being Exclusive

Yes, I can confidentially say that there are men who proposes to being exclusive. Not all men want to just sleep around and keep things casual until you bug them enough, only then will they finally decide to be in an official, monogamous relationship.

The simply truth is that there are guys who know a good thing when they’ve got one – and want to lock down a woman who makes them happy anytime and put a smile on their face.

Introduced You to His People

Another type of men who is worth giving a chance are those guys who brings you into his life and introduces you to the people who are important to him.

It just makes you feel special, when a man actually takes the initiative and introduces you to his good friends and his family. The means that you don’t need any tricks to practically drag a guy to a family event to meet yours. On the flip side, if a guy is purposefully hiding you from the important people in his life, this is a major red flag that he’s not the type of guy you want in your life. Except all you want is a fling and nothing important from the relationship.

Not Afraid To Compromise

Another type of men who are worth giving a chance is the type who’s not afraid to compromise. No, it doesn’t make you less of a man to compromise, and the man who knows that winning isn’t everything always, is the man who is a joy to be in a relationship with.

Wants to Connect With your Friends

Another type of Men you should take serious, is that man who actually wants to know your friends and family. It means that he wants to know you, it also means that he want your friends to be his friends – it’s not like they’re going to stop being your friends anytime soon.

So a guy who actually takes the time to get to know them and becomes friends with them is definitely a keeper.

Spends Time With Your Family

A man who enjoys spending time with your family is a keeper and you should not let him slip out of your finger. There are too many guys in this world who think spending time with their significant other family is a chore, a duty to be performed unhappily and without joy.

But the guy who actually LIKES spending time with your family, have meal with them and bonds with them as if they were his own? He’s rare and should not be let go.

A man who can make a plan (and stick to it)

This is another trait to know if the guy is the type to be taken seriously. When you’re trying to schedule a dinner date with him and he actually shows up after only a couple texts about it? That’s a guy who’s worth keeping by your side.

Shares Same Passion

This characteristics in a guy means he’s a keeper. A man who is passionate about the same things you are is rare, as guys usually want Ladies to be passionate about the things they’re passionate about, not vice-versa.

The big things in life are pretty non-negotiable, and if you discover that your guy doesn’t want the same things out of life that you do, then things probably aren’t going to work out, no matter how hard you tried balancing it. Make sure you’re on the same page with any guy that has serious potential.

Calls You Immediately

This is the type of Guys I usually love! There is nothing flirty about these type of men, A man who calls you (on the PHONE!) after meeting you.

No waiting 3 days and sending a vague text. No games or child play. No funny stuff. Just an honest to god, pleasant phone call from a real man who actually wants to TALK to you and know you better. Guys like this are a dying breed.

A man who texts back right away

Gosh, who does not like these types? Enough of this waiting around for him to text back forever, worrying more and more that you have just said the wrong thing or you start thinking what you’ve done to annoy him. (After all, you can see right on the screen that he READ your text! What is he waiting for!??!)

Who has time for a guy that won’t text back for days? Nobody, that’s who! And you shouldn’t be the person that begs for attention from someone who doesn’t care about you, even if it’s just to reply a text.

Tv Shows? He’s With You

A man who doesn’t mind watching the TV shows you like, is a rare type of breed and shouldn’t be joked with. Now, there are guys who will easily scream when you want to watch a Show, and he wants to watch sport, there tends to be a big upcoming hurricane. But if you’ve got a guy that does not mind watching the same shows as you, even when his team is playing, he’s a rare breed.

He knows it makes you happy. He knows you love it. And he probably (secretly) loves it too. These guys are the best.

Cuts off Other “Relationships”

A man who cuts off any other relationships once he gets serious about you is truly a keeper. Even before you get exclusive, a man who stops fooling around with anyone else, simply because he knows he wants you is a guy with principles. In other words, the kind of guy you want in your life if you want to settle down.

A man who will kiss you like he REALLY means it

And I’m not talking about perfunctory pursed lips kisses or pecks on the cheek. I’m talking about life affirming, take you and squeeze you type of kiss like it means the world to him. A guy whose tight deep kisses shrink the universe down to the spot where the two of you are standing is a guy to be taken serious.

Goes After What He Wants

Another breed of guys to be taken serious are those who are not afraid to go after what they want in life. A man who isn’t afraid to go after what he wants is to be taken seriously.

There are too many guys out there who are wishy washy wimps who can’t ever and even decide what they really want in life, let alone go after it. Not this guy, though. He knows exactly what he wants – and he’s not afraid of reaching out to grab it. (It’s you. He wants you.)

The 24 Types Of Men That Are Worth Giving A Chance

A man who proposes being exclusive
A man who brings you into his life and introduces you to the people who are important to him
A man who’s not afraid to compromise
A man who actually wants to know your friends
A man who enjoys spending time with your family
A man who can make a plan (and stick to it)
A man who is passionate about the same things you are
A man who calls you (on the PHONE!) after meeting you
A man who texts back right away
A man who doesn’t mind watching the TV shows you like
A man who cuts off any other relationships once he gets serious about you
A man who will kiss you like he REALLY means it
A man who isn’t afraid to go after what he wants
A man who can sacrifice in order to keep your relationship strong
A man who doesn’t think twice about sending you flowers
A man who can share his feelings honestly
A man who won’t try to change you – or even want to
A man who follows through on his promises
A man who thinks you’re at your sexiest when you’re lounging in a t-shirt
A man who will really, really listen to you
A man who will ask you to marry him.

Are You Pregnant? The 1 Thing You Must Do Right Now

The reason why I decided to write this article may be surprising, but after reading through this, you’ll understand perfectly clear WHY I decided to write this. When I was pregnant, there were plenty of things I made sure to do before the baby arrived planet earth, whether it was going on a date night or sleeping past 10 a.m. (Though, warning: sleeping past 7 a.m. will soon feel indulgent.) However, there is something, one thing I didn’t do enough of, which was leave. Just leave.

Now, If you are pregnant and reading this content, Here’s my instruction to you. Just stand up and walk out your front door. Right now. Just walk through that door, and close it behind you. You can decide either to bring a wallet, or not. Take or leave your cell phone, I don’t care. But all I want you to do, is just leave and don’t come back for, say, 20 minutes. Go ahead, I’ll wait while you do this.

Hey, are you Back? OK. That, my friends, is something you’ll never take for granted again.

Now My story and reason for that crazy advice is below. You see, the other day, I was taking some “me time” and spending about 45 luxurious seconds going to the bathroom when I pulled off the last of the toilet paper roll and was amazed, when I suddenly discovered that I’d forgotten to buy more the last time I was at the store. No big deal, I’ll just run out and grab some.

Please give me a few Minutes and let me briefly explain what “run out and grab some” means, in minutes, to a new mom:

  • 6 minutes: You’ll take more than 6 minutes to pack up the diaper bag. It’s a short trip,. Sure, but you’ve learned the hard way to be prepared anytime and anywhere.
  • 2 minutes: Brush your teeth. So what if it’s past 11 a.m. and you still haven’t done that yet? You simply don;t need to bother with makeup. It’s only a TP run, after all. It’s not like you are buying actual groceries and thus need to break out the mascara and lip gloss and be your natural self.
  • 20 minutes: Feed baby. You know it has been a while since she ate, and you don’t want to be dealing with a fussy baby the minute you step outside or in the store trying to grab some goceries.
  • 3 minutes: Burp baby. Easy peasy!
  • 4 minutes: Depends on fast you decide to be, but it takes about 4 concrete minutes to change baby’s outfit. Not for sartorial purposes, but because that burp just came with a side of spit up. A lot of spit up. While you’re at it, you might want to change your shirt, too, since the baby Burp has soiled it.
  • 5 minutes: Change baby’s diaper. That smell you were trying to ignore during the outfit change isn’t getting any better and you can’t ignore it any longer.
  • 1 minute: Check the weather. Looks like baby needs a hat just in case the weather changes.
  • 1 minute: Find a hat suitable for your baby.
  • 4 minutes: Now you’re done, all you need to do, is to strap baby into car seat. Keep in mind, you aren’t anywhere near the car yet.
  • 2 minutes: Grab your purse and keys and diaper bag and car seat and head for the door to bolt it.
  • 2 minutes: Pee. All this moving around has you needing to go to the bathroom again. Halfway through, you realize the reason for all this: you are out of toilet paper.
  • 1 minute: Look for a tissue, paper towel, baby wipe, anything. Maybe you don’t need toilet paper after all?
  • 2 minutes: Grab everything again and head out the door for real this time.

Calculating the above time spent, you discovered that even 53 minutes later, I was finally “running out.” It took me nearly an hour to leave the house, and keep in mind that I was still in sweatpants, sneakers, and a ratty ponytail. (Truth: I realized right after I got outside that I forgot to put on deodorant but refused to turn back.)

Now what is the lesson you learnt from this story? I never realized how easy it was just to walk out the door before I had a baby that makes me smile and same time, makes me scream!. If I could go back in time, I’d tell my pregnant self to just get up — no matter how swollen my feet were — and leave. I’d tell her to enjoy the freedom of being able to decide to leave and actually leave within the same minute before the arrival of the baby that will certainly take up your time.

So, every now and then, just stop what you are doing and go for a walk around the block. Stand up and go grab a manicure. Go run to the bodega for a bag of Skittles. Go anywhere. Soon enough you’ll have one major (albeit adorable) obstacle between you and the front door.

As the game grew, however, players let their imaginations take over and began building castles, tree houses, and homes that could only exist in dreams.

Seeing how helpful this helps kids in being creative, the game offers a creative mode option for players whose main passion is to, well, create wonderful structures through the power of their imagination.

3. It Teaches Kids to Set (and Finish) Goals

Another wonderful aspect of this game is that it helps and teaches Kids to set and finish goals. Although the game has no specific goal like rescuing a princess or crossing the finish line first, Kids who play this game are rewarded when they complete certain tasks.

This reward goes a long way in forcing them to identify their own goals, develop a plan to best achieve it, and motivate themselves to accomplish it every time, no matter how long or hard the goal is. Building self-regulation skills like these will teach your child how to complete tasks without constant reminders and help.

4. It Makes Math Fun

Have you ever played or watched this game? It’s almost built around mathematics. Geometry takes a little more work than plugging numbers into a calculator or drawing them on a line.

This is the same as Minecraft, as Minecraft’s use of shapes and space might make the subject easier to comprehend.

5. It Gives Them Power and Confidence

Have you ever thought of a game that is both Entertaining, Educative and confidence-boosting? Then Minecraft is the answer. Kids are often told they aren’t big enough, old enough, or smart enough to take on certain tasks.

But in Minecraft, it is a different story altogether. Minecraft proves that kids can be just as successful and skilled as adults. Also, because of the open-world format, kids and not a computer program, control the game.

6. It Appeals to Everyone

In addition to constructing shelter, players must survive in their new world by gathering materials and hunting for food. This goes a long way in teaching kids that they must protect themselves from a slew of dangerous elements such as hot lava and hostile creatures.

You can read stories of how Gaming has helped Kids deal in real-life situations they had no knowledge about.

7. It Teaches Teamwork

Another advantage of Minecraft is that it teaches kids how to team up and achieve a goal. By switching to multiplayer mode, kids can work together to build and protect a whole new world.

Bonus Points ON WHY Your Kids should Play Minecraft

1. It Helps Socially

Because of its diversity and popularity, Minecraft brings together Hundred of thousands of kids from a variety of social groups. It has even helped some kids overcome their social struggles.

According to Christy Wyatt, a mother and the head of Good Technology tells BBC News this which I decided to quote below:

“My son does have some challenges with the kids at school, but Minecraft is the thing that brought them together,”.

2. There’s No Violence

Unlike other games which I won’t mention here that promotes violence, Minecraft is the direct opposite. We live in a world which has too many graphic games, Minecraft lacks the gore factor that makes other games so popular.

Given the number of studies that link video games to violent behavior in children, this trait is especially reassuring to parents.

In our current world, wearing pants seems to be the fashion rule #1. But as for me, as long as I can remember, I’ve only worn dresses and skirts.

If you were to know me personally, I could have given you permission to ask any of my closest friends if they’ve ever seen me wearing pants, and the answer will be a resounding “no.”

The truth, simple truth is that I have just a pair of skinny jeans collecting dust in my closet. I have a pair of yoga pants that have never see the light of day. Other than the rare occasion when I’m skiing in snow pants or rock climbing in leggings, I always wear dresses and skirts. I pretty much lead a pant-less existence 😀 :D.

  • No jeans?
  • No sweatpants?
  • No culottes?

No problem. You will be surprised to know that I broke up with pants ten years ago, and I’ve never looked back.

I guess your question will be “Why am I so dress-obsessed?” My love affair with dresses started for these reasons shared below, and after reading, you may be convinced to start wearing a dress more often than usual.

They make me feel like I’m Audrey Hepburn

Dresses are just so feminine and flirty, it automatically makes you look beautiful and respectable. Please, I am not saying Ladies on pants aren’t respectable looking, but since the dress has been ditched, anytime we’re on dress, it tends to showcase our feminine side.

It does not matter whether it’s a billowing sundress or a fitted cocktail dress, whenever I put on a dress, I always feel like a real-life Holly Go lightly when walking around downtown in a girly outfit.

Hey, don’t judge me on a few lapses, but when you eat a meal that could feed a village, you sure know your tummy will be telling the whole world. The truth is that Pants just aren’t forgiving enough for my strict all-carb diet.

They make me look pretty without even trying

Here’s another insane reason why you should try on dress today. Dress makes you effortlessly pretty.

Dresses are the laziest form of clothing — they’re basically a towel with straps which you can put around your body. But they’re effortlessly chic, so they make you look like you tried really hard, when actually, you just put it on.

In reality, it probably took me less time to throw on one piece of fabric than it took you to put on multiple layers of clothing.

They are good conversation starters

Here’s another wonderful reason for ladies to put on dresses. I noticed that whenever I wear dresses and skirts around town, I get more compliments and smiles from strangers.

When I look and feel my best, I’m naturally going to invite more small talk while standing in line at the grocery store or grabbing a coffee by myself.

They give me confidence

confidence boost

The last reason why I think Dresses would love smashing on any Lady, is that it gives you self confidence. When it comes down to it, I don’t dress up for anyone but myself.

I wear what I like and dress how I want to portray myself to the world, so am not in any pressure to showcase or outdo anyone. Dresses and skirts make me happy — they’re just so me. Besides, life is too short to wear boring clothes, which Is why I opt in for dresses and am never going back.
