Rich man’s daughter rejects poor man’s proposal. 10 years later, he meets her again…

The story you are about to read is one of the most shared and read stories that went viral recently. It is the story about a man who was rejected by a rich girl in his youth because he “wasn’t her class” and he wasn’t earning enough to support her lifestyle habits. There is an unexpected twist at the end of the story which can teach us all a valuable lesson about life.

Read on to see what it’s all about.

A young man was very much in love with his rich neighbor. So much so that he decided to propose to her.

Unluckily for him, he was in for a very cold shower.“Your monthly salary is equivalent to my daily expenses. How do you expect me to marry someone like you? I can never love you so forget about me. Go find and marry someone else of your level,” said the girl while rejecting him.

In spite of being rejected so harshly, for some reason the young man continued to have feelings for the girl.

Some 10 years after the proposal, the two of them accidentally met at a mall.

She recognized him and didn’t miss her chance to rub it in: “Hey, how are you? I’m now married to a very smart man, and his salary is $15,700 per month! Can you beat that?”

Even though a lot of time had passed, the man was still visibly shaken by her words. After a few moments, her husband joined them and was surprised to see the man there: “Sir? G-good afternoon! I see you’ve met my wife!”

“Good afternoon too, Mr…?”, said the man.

“Mr. Carter, Sir!”

Then the man introduced his wife: “Dear, I would like you to meet my boss. He owns the $100 million project I’ve been working on!”

The woman was completely taken aback.

The man smiled mildly and just said: “Well, Mr. Carter. I’ve got to get going. I have important things to attend to. It was splendid seeing you today. Have a great day!”

For a moment, the husband and the wife just stood in silence as the man was walking away.

After overcoming the initial shock, the woman still couldn’t believe what she had just witnessed: “That was your boss?”

“Yes, dear. He is a very humble person but his life is quite a sad story. They said he once loved a lady but she dumped him because he was just a poor boy back then. Because of that, he worked really hard. And because he is smart, he became successful. Now he is a multimillionaire who earns millions of dollars a month. Unfortunately though, he could not move on from that heartbreak and remains unmarried still.”

The husband then added: “How lucky would that lady have been if she had married that man?”

The lady was speechless and just looked at him in disbelief.

The story’s lesson – life is too short for us to be burdened with prejudice and we always need to remember that there is more to everything than just what meets the eye, especially at first sight. Don’t look down on others since you never know what turn life can take over time.

After nearly 50 years of marriage, a couple was lying in bed one evening, when the wife felt her husband begin to massage her….

After nearly 50 years of marriage, a couple was lying in bed one evening, when the wife felt her husband, begin to massage her in ways he hadn’t in quite some time.

It almost tickled as his fingers started at her neck, and then began moving down past the small of her back.

He then caressed her shoulders and neck, slowly worked his hand down, stopping just over her stomach.

He then proceeded to place his hand on her left inner arm, working down her side, passing gently over her buttock and down her leg to her calf.

Then, he proceeded up her thigh, stopping just at the uppermost portion of her leg. He continued in the same manner on her right side, then suddenly stopped, rolled over and became silent.

As she had become quite aroused by this caressing, she asked in a loving voice, ‘Honey that was wonderful. Why did you stop?’ To which he responded: ‘I found the remote.’…

Husband runs a test on wife for love, what she does is amazing

One man suddenly felt that his wife became too cold and unloving. He decided to find out how she would react if he left her.

He chose to write her a letter telling he was tired of her and no longer wanted to live together. The man knew it was rather childish, but he needed to know her true feelings.

Having written the letter, he put it on the bedside table and then hid under the bed waiting for his wife to come home. He hoped she would be upset and expected to hear her crying and calling friends to complain.

When the wife eventually got home, she saw the letter and read it.

After a few moments of silence, she took a pen and started adding something to the letter. Then she got changed whistling happy tunes and singing and dancing. She sounded happy rather than frustrated and heartbroken.

The man was shocked, but things only got worse.

The wife took the phone and dialed a number. Her husband listened as she was talking to someone:

“Hey, hun. I’ve already changed and ready to meet. As for my fool, I’ve finally driven him crazy, and he left. How could I marry him? I wish we met earlier. See you soon, my dear!”

She hung up and walked out of the room.

After some time, the husband heard she opened and closed the front door. His wife was gone. In tears and utterly upset about the test he got out from under the bed and started to read what his wife left written in his letter.

He read through tears: “I can see your feet sticking out from under the bed. I’m off to buy bread.”

Unconditional love is the experience of being.

We use the word “love” but we have no more understanding of love than we do of anger or fear or jealousy or even joy, because we have seldom investigated what that state of mind is. What are the feelings we so quickly label as love? For many what is called love is not lovely at all but is a tangle of needs and desires, of momentary ecstasies and bewilderment. Moments of unity, of intense feelings of closeness, occur in a mind so fragile that the least squint or sideways glance shatters its oneness into a dozen ghostly paranoias.

When we say love we usually mean some emotion, some deep feeling for an object or person, that momentarily allows us to open to another. But in such emotional love, self-protection is never very far away. Still there is “business” to the relationship: clouds of jealousy, possessiveness, guilt, intentional and unintentional manipulation, separateness, and the shadow of all previous “loves” darkens the light of oneness.

But what I mean by love is not an emotion, it is a state of being. True love has no object. Many speak of their unconditional love for another. Unconditional love is the experience of being; there is no “I” and “other,” and anyone or anything it touches is experienced in love. You cannot unconditionally love someone. You can only be unconditional love. It is not a dualistic emotion. It is a sense of oneness with all that is. The experience of love arises when we surrender our separateness into the universal. It is a feeling of unity. You don’t love another, you are another. There is no fear because there is no separation.

“I love you” means that I accept you for the person that you are.

“I love you” means that I accept you for the person that you are, and that I do not wish to change you into someone else. It means that I will love you and stand by you even through the worst of times.

It means loving you even when you’re in a bad mood, or too tired to do the things I want to do. It means loving you when you’re down, not just when you’re fun to be with. “I love you” means that I know your deepest secrets and do not judge you for them, asking in return that you do not judge me for mine.

It means that I care enough to fight for what we have and that I love you enough not to let go. It means thinking of you, dreaming of you, wanting and needing you constantly, and hoping you feel the same way for me.

~ Jonathan Safran Foer

Sometimes, you find the right person at the wrong time. Sometimes it’s the wrong person at the right time. But when you find the right person, at the right time, in the right situation, it’s because you’re meant to be together. Fate has grabbed both of your hands. Don’t let go.

6 tips to help a bipolar loved one

There are four main types of the disorder that are different in severity and some specific symptoms. People with bipolar disorder usually have the same general symptoms, but everyone who is affected experiences it differently. Anyone who knows about bipolar disorder also knows that dealing with episodes of the condition is no walk in the park. When a person is having a manic or depressive episode, this state can affect people around him or her. If someone close to you has bipolar disorder, your job is to try to keep him or her grounded and show that you care.


Here are some tips to keep in mind if your loved one is bipolar:

Learn more about the disorder


Look for information about bipolar disorder from reliable resources, such as the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and American Psychiatric Association. Reading firsthand accounts from people living with bipolar disorder in books, articles, and blogs can help you better understand what your loved one is going through.

Keep your loved one’s treatment in check
Treatment usually helps reduce frequency and severity of manic and depressive episodes. Make sure your loved one takes medicines exactly as prescribed (it may take some convincing). If he or she doesn’t mind, you can accompany the person to therapy sessions. You don’t have to be present at the sessions, you can wait outside.

Listen, but don’t judge


It may be hard to follow what someone is saying during a manic episode. The person can change the topic of the conversation multiple times and not be able to catch up with his or her own thoughts. During a depressive episode, the person may be reluctant to talk at all. But when your loved one is willing to talk, listen to him or her patiently. Be it grandiose ideas during a manic episodes or self-deprecation during episodes of depression, don’t disregard what your loved one is saying. If he or she has dangerous or irrational ideas, attempts to talk your loved one out of them may be futile. If the person is hallucinating, delusional, or is intending self-harm, emergency medical help is needed.

Don’t take their words to heart


Someone who is having an episode may say things that sound insensitive and hurtful. Try not to be offended by these words, because he or she probably doesn’t mean it and would never say it when symptom-free.

Don’t forget to take care of yourself
Have you heard about “putting on your own oxygen mask first before helping others”? It’s important to stick to your own schedule as well as you can when caring for someone who is having an episode. Get enough sleep, eat well, and take time to relax, so you’ll have the energy to help your loved one when he or she needs it.

Remember: bipolar disorder is nobody’s fault
It’s still not clear why some people develop bipolar disorder. What is clear, though, is that the disorder isn’t caused by something that the person or someone close to him or her did. Medicines and therapy usually help improve the symptoms of the condition, and the support of family and friends can help the treatment work better. Do what you can to help your loved one get through an episode and enlist the help of other relatives, friends, and mental health professionals.

30 different ways to kiss

Whether it’s a brief peck on the lips or a long, sensual smooch, you would be hard-pressed to find someone who does not enjoy kissing in one form or another! While kissing may seem like it’s a fairly straight-forward process, the truth is that there are many different forms of kissing. Actually, kissing can be so varied and unique that each type of kiss feels entirely different. While it would be impossible to list all the different types of kissing, we’ve made a list of 30 of the most popular types of kiss and why you might consider adding them to you smooching routine!

#1. Slow and Steady Kisses
Kissing doesn’t have to be full of passion and fury; sometimes, the most important kisses are the slowest and deepest. Rather than trying to overwhelm your partner with your exuberance, consider a long smooch that lasts at least half-a-minute. Use this time to really show your sweetheart what they mean to you using your mouth.


#2. French Kissing
The total opposite of slow and steady kisses, French kissing is full of passion and desire. You French kiss someone when your tongue enters their mouth or your tongue touches that of the other person.

#3. Kissing on the Hand
If you’re a guy who wants to show his woman a little bit of respect, ditch the smooches on the mouth and instead go for her hand. Nothing tells a girl that she is loved and honored quite like a gentle kiss on the back of the hand.

#4. Forehead Kisses
Girls go absolutely crazy for kisses on the forehead. When a man kisses his girl on the forehead, she doesn’t have to feel like he simply wants to make out. A forehead kiss is a sweet way to show someone that they truly matter to you.

#5. The Short but Sweet Peck
A gentle peck on the lips or even the cheek is entirely non-committal but still tells a lot about your feelings for someone. The peck kiss is a great option if you aren’t sure about the relationship, but want to throw out a hint without a full-fledged smooch on the mouth.

#6. Kissing One Lip
We generally think of kisses as involving both lips, but people actually enjoy a single lip kiss. Rather than going for the entire mouth, a single lip kiss involves kissing one of your partner’s lips without the other.


#7. Kisses in the Morning
Unsure of how to get your husband or wife up and going in the morning? Start the day out with a soft kiss!

#8. Conversation Kisses
If you’re in the midst of a conversation and tender feelings start to rise, consider making a brief interruption with a swift kiss.

#9. Drinking and Kissing
Okay, this one isn’t for the faint of stomach, but some people actually enjoy kissing while they’re in the process of drinking. During the kiss, some of their drink is transferred to the other person’s mouth. Be careful while doing this one – some partners might not enjoy a mouth full of your Diet Coke!

#10. Kisses on the Shoulders
Some people love being tenderly kissed on the shoulders, giving them the feeling that they are loved and appreciated in a very intimate way.

#11. Australian Kisses
Okay, if you’re not much into the French way of doing things, consider an Australian kiss. An Australian kiss is similar to a French kiss but isn’t quite as fancy.

#12. Kisses on the Stomach
Whether your partner is a guy or a girl, a tender kiss on the stomach is a flirty way to spice things up.


#13. Kisses on the Cheek
Not sure if you’d get slapped if you kiss your crush on the lips? By-pass the smooch and go for a cheek kiss instead. These kisses are innocent and gentle, while still opening the door for more in the future.

#14. Kisses on the Back
Men generally are considered the kissers in a relationship, but kisses on the back can be a sweet but passionate way for a woman to show her love for her husband.

#15. A Kiss for an Angel
Do you feel like your girlfriend is an angel? Try gently kissing her on the eyelids…just make sure that her eyes are closed before you go in for the kiss!


#16. Eskimo Kissing
Your lips aren’t the only way to kiss! Try Eskimo kissing by rubbing your noses together rather than your lips.

#17. Kissing the Ears
If you want to put some spark into your marriage, try kissing your partner on the ears. Nothing is quite as much a turn-on as some ear-kissing.

#18. Butterfly Kisses
Just like the Eskimo kissing, butterfly kisses don’t involve the lips. With butterfly kisses, you connect by fluttering your eyelashes together.

#19. Sharing Lip Gloss
Want to get into some deep kissing? Put on a bunch of lip gloss, then make a game of seeing how much of it you can transfer to your man while smooching.

#20. Sharing Fruit
Want a healthy snack while you’re kissing? Take some fruit in your mouth, such as a strawberry, and transfer it to your lover’s mouth while kissing.

#21. Kissing Puzzles
Rather than sticking to just one location, add a little bit of thrill to your marriage by kissing in a puzzle. Go for the arms, hands, and forehead as you kiss them in surprising ways.

#22. Biting While Kissing
This isn’t for everyone, so make sure that your partner is okay with it before you get started! If you want to try biting, gently nibble on the other person’s lips while kissing.


#23. Kissing Under the Mistletoe
Yeah, it is cliché, but it’s also sweet! Don’t miss out on extra kisses by putting up some mistletoe and setting it to work!

#24. Kissing with Chocolate
Some people enjoy putting chocolate in their mouth before kissing so that their smooches taste sweet and like a piece of desert.

#25. Kiss and Blow
Kiss your partner until they are practically on fire, then blow on their lips, creating and hot and cold sensation.

#26. Kissing Like a Vampire
To add some spice to your relationship, try giving a vampire kiss where you kiss, bite, and suck on your partner’s neck.


#27. Kissing in the Rain.
Everyone loves a romantic, rainy movie scene. The next time is starts raining you should head outside with your partner and enjoy some smooches!

#28. Sucking Lips.
Some people love to have their lips sucked while kissing.

#29. Kissing on the Jaw.
If you want to show someone your love and devotion, consider giving them a kiss on the jaw-line.

#30. Breathe out a Kiss
Rather than smooching with your lips, try using your mouth to simply breathe on each other instead.

If your partner has these apps, they might be cheating on you

Infidelity is not a new trend by any means. People have been cheating on each other since the dawn of time, largely because the moral compass of the human race is not quite as centred as we like to pretend it is! This is off to a cheery start, isn’t it?

The good news is that cheating in the modern age is actually much more difficult than it was back in the day. In the 1800’s, nobody had to cover their tracks because there were no tracks: all a cheater had to do was make sure that their partner didn’t physically see them cheating. But today, we have texts, calls, emails, pictures, GPS, and social media to provide our partner with constant information on our exact whereabouts.

This has proved to be a bit of an obstacle for cheaters, as we have all heard story after story of someone being caught cheating when their partner found incriminating texts or saw revealing Snapchats. Technology is advancing every day, though, and people aren’t getting any less sh*tty, so there are now many apps on the market to help a cheater conceal their extracurricular activities. If you see any of these apps on your partners phone, you might want to have a little chat …

1. Private Photo

The icon for this app looks like a calculator, but when you open it, it will prompt you to enter a password. If you get the password correct, it will reveal a secret photo library. So how do you differentiate this from a normal calculator app that may innocently be on your partner’s phone? Look for a percentage symbol in the bottom right corner where a division sign would normally be… if you see that, then you know something’s up.

2. Tiger Texts

This app lets users hide their texts by setting a time limit on them (in a similar fashion to Snapchat). The messages sent can not be saved, copied, or forwarded, so it’s the perfect platform for someone to send things they never want to be found.

3. Nosy Trap

Nosy Trap turns the tables and helps the cheaters catch the snoopers. Users enable the app whenever they leave their phone unattended, and it will use the front-facing camera to take a photo of whoever is trying to snoop. It does this by displaying a fake iPhone background that looks completely normal, but if an incorrect passcode is entered, the camera starts rolling.


4. Fox Private Message

This app immediately deletes all messages if the phone is physically shaken. It also allows users to enter a number as a “private contact”, meaning that any messages from that contact will then only go straight to the app instead of through regular messaging.

5. Slydial

This app is for when cheaters are “busy” and don’t want to talk to a partner who is calling. It allows them to call their partner back, but ensures that it will go straight to voicemail, so it looks like they tried to call when they really didn’t. Frankly, this could be used in a number of capacities outside of infidelity.

6. Black SMS

This app converts messages into image files that can only be seen when you enter a secret password. It will keep the images black otherwise, so nobody will be able to see any naughty photos but the holder of the password.

7. DateMate

This app is basically a calendar to keep track of mistresses, allowing users to monitor who they’re meeting, when, and where. It also stores contacts, addresses, phone numbers, etc. and even monitors the “date progress” of every encounter so the cheater can remember who he/she likes best… nice!

8. CoverMe

This is the ultimate secret-keeping app. It can recall messages after they’re sent, encrypt them before they’re sent, and can set them to self-destruct. It also keeps all of of the user’s information in an encrypted personal vault, and users can even set up a decoy password. If your partner has this they might be cheating on you, but they also might be a secret CIA operative.


9. Lookout Security & Antivirus

This is the mother of all evidence-destroying apps. It will completely wipe a phone of all information at the press of a button, leaving no trace of any messages, pictures, etc. This app is truly the last line of defense in adulterous secret keeping.

If you consider yourself to be a snooper of sorts, keep these apps in mind next time you’re glancing at your partner’s phone. If you see any of these apps, then someone’s got some ‘splaining to do. Don’t trust us? Then why not let a professional mistress share the clear signs your partner is probably cheating.

After 40 years together, Jeff Bridges discloses truth about his marriage

We rarely get the chance to glimpse into the private lives of celebrity couples who deliberately stay under the gossip radar. But, in an interview on Oprah’s Master Class, actor Jeff Bridges opened up his heart and showed us why true love doesn’t need a spotlight to shine bright.

Most people don’t know that “The Dude” from the classic cult film The Big Lebowski has been with his wife, Susan Geston, for over 40-years, and that she’s the only woman he’s ever been married to. That alone makes this couple a Hollywood relationship anomaly!

Yet, that’s only the beginning of an unbelievable love story that has spanned decades and reached near-mythic proportions. In a perfect world, everyone would be lucky enough to experience a love like theirs.

The Hollywood actor met his wife back in 1975 at a hotel in Montana, where he was filming Rancho Deluxe. Even though she was sporting two black eyes and a broken nose at the time, he still couldn’t take his eyes off the blonde beauty.

It was love at first sight for him, but she actually rejected his advances when he finally mustered up the courage to ask her out. On Oprah’s Master Class series, Jeff cheekily mimicked his wife’s deadpan response:

“No. It’s a small town, maybe I’ll see you around.”

Thankfully, she was right, and the two bumped into each other a couple of days later. This time they hit it off, and after filming ended Sue followed the rising Hollywood star to California.

Of course, anyone who has been in a long-term relationship knows that peaches and cream can sometimes taste like rocky road. Two years after they met, Sue told Jeff that she intended to move back home to Montana.

Her biological clock was ticking, and she wanted to be a wife and mother. The Hollywood hunk was still in his 20’s and wasn’t sure if he wanted to be married. But after Sue delivered her ultimatum, Jeff suddenly realized that he would forever regret it if his one true love slipped away. He told OWN:

“I said, ‘Oh God, I can’t let this woman go.’ I had this vision of an old guy thinking there was this girl from Montana, man, why didn’t I marry her. I pictured, like, a handful of sand and there was a little diamond in there and I’m letting it go.”

He didn’t even have to think about his next move – Jeff immediately got down on his knees and proposed to her. Five days later, they were blissfully wed! It’s now been 40 years, and he hasn’t looked back since.

About ten years after the couple were married, Jeff recalls receiving a letter from the makeup artist who worked on the set of Rancho Deluxe, where he first met Sue. The crew member had been going through his files when came across an old photo of Jeff asking a local girl out on a date.

“Out of this envelope falls these two pictures of the first words I ever spoke to my wife. I have it in my pocket, they’re my prized possessions.”

Jeff then stopped the interview for a moment so that he could fish out his wallet and proudly show off the love of his life. With a cheeky grin, the actor gazed at his soul mate with the same puppy dog eyes he had for her back then.

“Look at that, isn’t she gorgeous?”

You can see it in his eyes – he was falling in love with his wife all over again every time he caressed those precious memories.

Jeff later realized that there was no reason to fear marriage. It actually opened up brand new doors that he never knew existed.

“What you don’t know until you get married is that you think all the other doors close – which is true. But this doorway you open [with marriage] is a hallway lined with all these other brilliant doors – kids, deeper intimacy, adventures, and everything else.”

However, it’s not just the new adventures that make a life-long partnership worth having. When you’re truly committed, it just gets better with age – just like a fine wine!

“What they don’t tell you about marriage is that it just keeps getting better on all levels… Intimacy is what we’re all looking for. It’s kind of a big high.”

Wow, I had no idea. Jeff Bridges is a such a romantic “Dude” at heart! I don’t even have the words to describe how much this amazing man radiates inspiration, love, kindness, and positivity!

Watch the video below delve deeper into this real-life Hollywood love story.
