Meet Llinos, My Solidarity Sister

I can't believe this month aka November is over. This month I was fortunate to be involved with Solidarity Sisters hosted by Susannah at Simple Moments Stick!  So today it's my privilege to introduce my Solidarity Sister!!  Over this month I have been chatting with Llinos from The Lilac Linet. It’s been a lot of fun and our month of chatting has culminated in today’s post. A personal interview, we wrapped things up by asking each other some fun questions and getting to know each other even more!! 

What are your favourite blog posts to write?
Sometimes it's the random ones, like Youtube channels and gift roundups.  I love it when you get an idea for a post and have to write it immediately!

What's your favorite day of the week?

Obviously it's Saturday.  If I could bottle the promise of Saturday morning then I would be a millionaire!

How would your dream Christmas look?

It's me at home with my parents, in the house I grew up in, with my boyfriend there too.  We get up and open our gifts, then have dinner about 1pm.  After that we play games all afternoon until it's time to have a turkey sandwich and watch It's a Wonderful Life :-)

If you could spend the day with one movie star, who would you choose?

Natalie Dormer.  I am a huge fan of hers and will basically watch anything that she stars in.  I loved her in The Tudors and from there my admiration of her just grew.  I even wrote to her and received a signed photo, which made me so happy!  I would love to just have lunch with her and chat about life, her career and discuss fashion.  

Do you have a favorite winter drink?

At the moment I adore mint mocha!  It's just a really comforting drink filled with flavour, ideal for curling up with of an evening on the sofa.

This is the first time I have participated in Solidarity Sisters, and it was a lot of fun. If you are a blogger who is looking for support and new genuine connections I encourage you to check it out.

How to Tell if a Guy Doesn't Like You

Because men and women have different ways of flirting, one can easily misinterpret the signals a person is sending and think he or she likes them back. This is how you end up obsessing over someone for weeks and wondering when they’ll do the first step. 
To put an end to this ordeal, you pluck up your heart and give them a clear hint of your interest. But if the person is really not into you, they politely turn down and as a result, you feel covered in shame.
Women may have more difficulties determining correctly if someone is interested in them because they flirt in a more discreet manner and expect men to do the same. This is how a random glance from a guy can set you on fire for days and make you think he’s Mr. Right. 
But, if things don’t eventually move on, he’s either a shy guy or he’s not interested into you. Here are some signs he doesn’t like you back:
  • He’s never around
Men may have dozens of different ways of showing they like you, from teasing to making compliments; when they like you they always act somewhere around you. But if he never seems to be close to you and you need to chase him to have a conversation together, then you should forget about it. 
  • He doesn’t make eye contact
A guy who doesn’t like you may intentionally stare at you for a moment, just out of curiosity, but he’ll blink his eye away soon. On the other hand, women who stare shortly at a guy may like him, and for this reason you could think that a short blink from a man has the same meaning. Unless he looks into your eyes for seconds in a row, it’s better to get over it.
  • He’s never enthusiastic
Some other ways to know he is not interested: he doesn’t laugh at your jokes, he never initiates conversation, he doesn’t notice when you wear makeup and fragrance, and he never seems to feel your absence.
  • He’s not interested in your safety
A sure sign that he likes you is his efforts to protect you. For instance, someone harasses you in front of him and he reacts back, or he’s interested in your whereabouts and whether or not you’re safe. But if you leave a place late at night and alone and he doesn’t care, then he doesn’t care about you at all.
  • He is friendly with you as well as with anyone else
A friendly behavior will make you think he might like you, but he may actually be just a very sociable and outgoing guy who doesn’t have a special interest in your person. Take a look at the way he behaves when he’s around other women and if everyone gets the same treatment, this means you’re not the one for him.
  • He’s always busy
A guy who is interested in a woman will do anything to be prepared for a date and not miss it. Some bad signs: he sets a date last minute, cancels dates or says he’ll call you back and he doesn’t. If he likes you, he’ll make time for you and never let you down.
This may sound old-fashioned, but most men still consider they should make the first step. When they don’t, the disappointing truth you need to accept is that they probably don’t like you back.
