How to fix Tinder and find love – a step by step guide

Okay, time to get real. No one likes to talk about online dating. Especially not their own experiences, because let’s face it, most of them suck.

But today I will. By showing you how to fix Tinder. Because contrary to common belief, good things can come from online dating, if you use it right that is. That’s why today I’ll show you how to increase the quality of your Tinder matches tremendously – and thus increase your odds at finding love.

Note: If you’re really lazy, I’ll show you how to do this in a video tutorial, and also give you the exact words to say at the end of this post. It takes less than 7 minutes.

This is for all the 23 year olds, who have gotten their shit together. If you’ve realized how tough it is to find somebody to spend your life with, and that you should start looking no later than today, then this is for you.

Hint: This is not for young horny idiots and “pick up artists”, looking for quick hookups. If that’s what you’re looking for, go look elsewhere. The strategy I’m suggesting will actually work against you 🙂

Paleo gone Vegan – 10 Lessons from an entirely plant-based week

I have been eating mainly Paleo for quite some time now. A friend introduced me to it and it has worked well for me. I was not strict about it though, so I would on occasion eat something made from grains, e.g. at restaurants or on special occasions.

Naturally, I had a tough time wrapping my head around the concept of Veganism, as this group is right on the other side of the spectrum of Paleo. But one day I came across this quote:

Since I hate to leave great advice go by, I thought a 1-week Vegan challenge won’t hurt. And it didn’t. To the contrary, it greatly improved my knowledge about food and nutrition and actually had a major influence on my future diet.

Useless Diets: Why no diet works – but you must try them all

Remember I told you I was on a 1-week Vegan challenge, way back in October? Yeah, I’m way behind on the results, sorry about that. I’m not gonna make excuses saying I didn’t have time – I don’t believe in ‘having time’ (see below).

Something else I don’t believe in, is diets. At least not in what we call diets these days. If you look up where the word diet comes from, Google shows you this:

See the last line? Greek – ‘diaita’. A way of life. This is, in a nutshell, the reason why all these powders, pills, belly- and waistbands, electric power plates and magazine diets that are re-named and re-promoted year after year, don’t work.

How to google – the Ultimate Guide

Introduction

‘There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact.’ – Sherlock Holmes

A few weeks ago my Dad called me into his office. He said he had a computer-related problem.

Now I know what you’re thinking: Haha, those Dad’s and their computer problems, right?

Comfort Zone Challenge: I just ate an entire lemon – and I’ll give you 5 reasons why you should too.

Around 9 am I always need a second breakfast, since my first breakfast at 6:30 am won’t last. Usually it consists of a pretzel with butter, but as I’m on a 1-week Vegan challenge right now, that’s off the menu. Fruits and nuts it is!

Over the week I most often chose an apple or a banana with some nuts. I got used to it so quickly that today I thought I had to stir things up a bit – how can I make this uncomfortable? As if eating Vegan for a week wasn’t uncomfortable enough, right?

So today, I’d like to propose a comfort zone challenge to you: Eat an entire lemon!

When I checked the fridge, I spotted a few lemons sitting at the bottom, and before I could finish wondering whether you could eat lemons whole, like you do with oranges, I found myself next to a bowl with 4 big, peeled, chopped up lemon slices ready to go.

Here’s me eating one:

I finished the whole thing. I’ve had more pleasurable experiences with fruit, goes without saying. But here’s what I learned:

Get rid of your selling issues – get buying issues instead!

Here’s something many people think about upside down, if you ask me. Case in point:

I used to buy video games the way other people pick pizza toppings. I would go online one day, pick out 3-5 games, add to cart, click, confirm payment, click and before I knew it I had another bunch of games sitting on my shelf.

I would indeed play them, but most of the time just beat them once, set them back on the shelf and there they would sit for the longest time, before I could eventually bring myself to selling them. It was the exact same with movies.

Last year I got rid of all my video games, DVDs and BluRays. Here is a picture of my room from the clear-out.

Become your own MEDIC – Why you must leave your comfort zone to find happiness

Look around where you are right now. I guess you are reading this on the big screen of your computer at work, sitting in your height-adjustable office chair, coffee mug right next to you. Or maybe you are at the library, checking facebook, using their free wifi during a study break. Unless you are already home for the day, cuddled up on the couch in your pajamas with your iPad, freshly delivered pizza in the still warm box sitting on your lap.

Wherever you read this, I am betting you are knee deep inside your comfort zone.

I’ve been there. Often times I still am. But then I remember that I must leave it.

As comfy as it gets.
Right in the middle of the comfort zone.

Before convincing YOU to leave it, I would like you to do one thing. No worries, you won’t have to get up (yet). As in the article I talked about, rate your happiness on a scale of 0 to 10. Where do you land? Look at the important areas of life:
