Growing lovesickness in Europe and China

More and more young people, around the age of 27 to 35 moan about lovesickness. Of course everybody knows that this feeling is a part of life. But it is also part of life that after some time of moaning people find a new partner with whom they relate.

The fact I talk about is relevant in so far as more and more of those people also complain about the shortness of their relationships. This means a love relationship lasts not so long as it did before. The people in Germany therefore already talk about “Generation lovesickness”.

Of course there are many reasons for this development in society and yet one can say that the speed, fragmentation and the essential change of the work is one main reason for that. People live in a spiral of always getting faster, higher, richer and so on. There is no ……..

Rich people just care less

Did you ever think about some social or human consequences of loving to earn money and to get rich?

Did you ever think about what will (perhaps if you don`t care) happen if you get rich and still believe you wouldl stay the same?

There might be one when you will realize this:

Turning a blind eye. Giving someone the cold shoulder. Looking down on people. Seeing right through them.

These metaphors for condescending or dismissive behavior are more than just descriptive. They suggest, to a surprisingly accurate extent, the social distance between those with greater power and those with less — a distance that goes beyond the realm of interpersonal interactions and may exacerbate the soaring inequality in the United States.

A growing body of recent research shows….

If you marry a Chinese woman, then be prepared 😉

There’s an interesting and astonishing effect when marrying with a Chinese woman. Quite often when I talked to western men who married a Chinese woman, most of them agreed to the observed effect, which is like this:

Before the marriage Chinese women more often seem to be restrained, friendly, a little shy, ………

Unconscious body language of couples

While sleeping people usually behave very spontaneously. They are as they are, not self-controlled, not posing or doing anything special. Also while sleeping a couple behaves in a way that opens a deep insight into their relationship.

Nonverbally. They relate to each other in an unconscious way which mirrors their deep Connection and wishes for one another.

A Russian photographer once realized that many of her friends got pregnant. They as future parents…………

“Double-Eight” is the value of a father

As it is said at Wikipedia Father’s Day is a celebration honoring fathers and celebrating fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society. Many countries celebrate it on the third Sunday of June, but it is also celebrated widely on other days. Father’s Day was created to complement Mother’s Day, a celebration that honors mothers and motherhood.

A complementary integration lives from the fact that both sides, both poles belong to each other. It also means that both sides influence the other in a way that complementation always gets back into a good balance.

I was told that father`s day in China is not at all ……………..

Being caught at first sight (an embodyed story part 3)

The mystery of these hands, which I showed you some days ago caught me like an eye catcher. Passing this little window in a tiny side street of Rome old and odd faces did not look at me but somewhere in the air. Though without really realizing it, I could not pass without being caught. Lifeless faces, as it seemed to be, but with a (hidden) story about life.
I became curious and looked into the shop.

Maybe this is a good start to be aware of  “body”, of a possible bodily expression. It is a good start because ………….

 is online since one year 🙂

One year ago I started with One year full of interesting experience, inspiring experience, doubts, hesitation, fresh energy, supporting feedback and courage to go on.

My main interest is and was to write about intercultural communication under the special perspective of body language that means nonverbal communication. To follow this road is carried by being convinced that this perspective is a broad perspective. Much broader than photographic body language often is reduced to. Body language always, in all cultures, is expression and impression at the same time. It is born in a certain society, culture and always related to the setting, the context. Body language is part of dialogue, communication und acting. And body language is created in and by dialogue.

I hope you will be interested in my posts as you did before. Of course I thank you for your support by communicating the link to your friends or other people. Or by feedback. Or by posting yourself. Please feel fre to post yorself whatever you think its worth to be reported. — All of course has to be related to body languaga, nonverbal intercultural communication.

You are welcome!!!!!

From tomorrow on I will start with a little photo story, which is related of course to body language. A story with one tiny chapter each day. You alread get a little curious? I hope so. 🙂
