This isn’t even a relationship discussion. It’s self improvement, maybe work/employment given OP’s context, non-romantic relationships perhaps. At any rate I think most of us have people who’ve inspired us to do better. The trick is being inspired while not putting these people up on a pedestal; they’re only human. I’m pretty picky about who I draw inspiration from. Maybe it’s because I’m reasonably successful in my own right and don’t have major issues with my confidence. But I’ve had role models along the way who’ve inspired me and in an effort not to disappoint I’ve worked to better myself in order to meet and exceed expectations.


Hello,

than you for reply!

I see we have same exact thoughts.

You are right, people as a whole are NOT to be on pedestal, but some of their traits for sure. Moreover, is these people make you feel unlike anything else in your life, ever... well... at very least, they sure deserve special attention

Thanks

P.

In the United States (my and a lot of other posters' country), society is more about being yourself and being an individual. There is also the "Everyone's a winner" and "perfect as you are" message that is promoted (I like those messages). I wonder if in Prague, people are more encouraged to "impress one another" if you may.
ey, boy,

Hi!

One gentle note plz., while I have nothing about friendly chat with yer pals, mods might close this thread for that and I might still get some interesting feedback... maybe. So let us stay with usual talk, plz

I don't think praguers or Czechs or slavs try to impress more than any other nations. In 'Merica, you have plastic surgeries, in soviet Slavia we have Adidas tracksuit and Lada.




If I am not mistaken, I bet you have no idea what that stick on the driver's right serves for. Hahaha!

Anyway, what I wanted to say...

Yeah, "Everyone's a winner" and "perfect as you are" - while we are not that hard on these ideas as maybe you behind the Atlantic, I think this goes pretty much here as well... or at least where I live.

But since speaking, most of those women are from competitive Dance Sport, and dance sport is all about creating impression by your performance. That is what literally makes you a winner at competition.

Butt my slav ingrish must be very bad: in the title, I used word "Impressive", not "Impressing". clearly, I do not know the difference...

That's right. Women should be treated like humans instead of sex objects or trophies just like women should treat men like a human being instead of an ATM or freebie ticket. Well said.

Thatís all some men have going for them though, so they use it to their advantage.

The way to avoid being taken advantage of financially is to go to low key places. Go hiking. Go to the cinema. Go for a picnic. The people who only want to be wined and dined for free will not be up for those things.

Yes, there are some men that all they can do to get a date is flaunt their riches. There are some women that all they can do is show skin to get some attention so they use that to their advantage. Both cases end up getting the attention of people that will want to be with them for the wrong reasons.

Well said. Those people will lose interest in someone who plans a date like that. Also, a way men can avoid being taken advantage of financially is to find a woman who is all for equality, doesn't feel entitled, and has no problem contributing to dating expenses since the very first date.
