Elle Stanger is a stripper, a feminist, an activist, and a mother who has seen it all. In her job as an entertainer in Portland, Oregon, she has seen all sorts of men, both good and bad. And she’s ready to dish out some advice on the types of men you should not be dating.
1. He doesn't listen to you.
A man who doesn’t listen to you is only interested in sleeping with you. He doesn’t care about your thoughts and feelings. But if you do find a man who hangs on to your every word and remembers what you say, then that’s the kind of man worth-dating.
2. He can't stand bodily functions.
Women fart, sneeze, poop, pee, and have periods. Men know this. But if he complains about your bodily functions as if you have no right to have them, that’s a huge red flag.
3. He only likes you when you look great.
Surprise, surprise! If the man you’re with only wants to be around you when you’re all made up, he likes only what your body can offer and nothing else.
4. He doesn't admit his mistakes.
We all make mistakes and being able to own up to our mistakes is a sign of maturity. Dating a man who can’t muster up the balls to say sorry is like dating a bratty teenager who thinks they’re always right.
5. He says all his exes are crazy.
Think about it: the common factor in all his failed relationships is him. There’s a huge chance that he’s the problem, not his exes.
6. He says "I love you" too soon.
There’s no way anyone can genuinely love another person within a couple of days of meeting them. At best, that’s just infatuation, and man who says otherwise might not have the emotional maturity to tell the difference.
7. He doesn't live within his means.
It’s better to date a guy who lives a simple lifestyle than a guy who looks like a million bucks but owes the bank just as much.

Rosehip Oil: Proven Effective Remedy For Scars, Stretchmarks, And More…
No shame in having stretch marks. They are battle scars for being a mother. But here’s an effective way to remove it if you’re interested.
Rosehip oil has been known to be on a par with coconut oil in terms of skin care benefits. However, its benefits do not end there. In fact, it has been known as an effective healing product, having been used for centuries dating back to the time of ancient Egypt and the Mayan Empire.
In Britain during World War II, it was made into a syrup and was administered to children to protect them from infections. The syrup also provided relief from diarrhea, indigestion, and stomach and menstrual cramps.
Rosehip oil is made from Rosa aff. rubiginosa or Rosa moschata.
But what makes rosehip oil effective? Its effectiveness can be attributed to its chemical structure. It contains essential fatty acids, including gamma linoleic acid (GLA), which can be converted by the body to substances that help reduce inflammation and cellular growth. Moreover, rosehip oil is rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids which are converted to prostaglandins when absorbed in the skin, and are involved in the regeneration of cellular membrane and tissues. ...
