Is contraception a good or bad idea when dating?

There can be no doubt that contraception is a good thing when dating. If you’re worried if carrying it will make it look like you’re expecting sex, worry no more. Any woman going out in today’s world, will expect you to have at the very least a condom in your wallet- make a joke about how long it’s been there if you don’t want to look as if you’re expecting to use it! Also, it shows consideration of your date. You don’t want to get her pregnant or give her a disease- you’re not saying you have a disease by carrying one, just that you want her to be secure and relaxed about the situation. It’s a win win.

And there you have it- the two good reasons for carrying contraception with you when dating. Pregnancy and STDs. This isn’t being derogatory to her or to other women- there’s too many cases of men sleeping around with infections for you to risk it. However nice and clean she looks, and however much you fancy her,  you really don’t know about her sexual history, or who she’s been with. The diseases you can get through unprotected sex are many – and none of them pretty. So don’t go there.

There’s also another reason for Contraception- preventing unwanted pregnancy. Don’t fool yourself by saying to yourself “its only one time, it’ll never happen to me, I’ve done it before and it’ll be fine” or any variations on that theme.  All of these may be true- but there’s always going to be that first time. Also she really will be expecting you to have it- if she hasn’t already sorted it out, she’ll want to know you were prepared. Otherwise, what are you saying about her? Maybe you should be looking into Manchester escorts instead.

Dating obviously isn’t always and only about sex- but the topic may well come up and its best to be prepared. So carry contraceptives on dates- be responsible, be safe and be considerate.  It can only be good for you.

How do you find out if you have a son or daughter?

Parenthood can be a tricky subject and things may not always go as planned. While raising a child is indeed rewarding, there are countless times when one may be aware that she or she has become a parent. Perhaps the other partner suddenly ran away after learning she was pregnant. Or, a woman can claim that a man is the father of her child. These are two instances that require the use of some distinct approaches to find out whether or not one is a biological parent. So, what are the options available?

Social Searches

There are times when a good amount of research can take place to determine the legitimacy of a claim. Should a former (or current) partner state that you are the parent of a child, birth records, time frames and locations can be checked. While these may not provide complete certainty, they can certainly narrow down the possibilities that a claim may be true. Having said this, the most definitive way to be completely sure is through the use of DNA testing.

Paternity and Maternity Testing

Modern science has enabled humanity to advance in leaps and bounds. One of these areas revolves around genetic testing. Also known as providing a genetic “fingerprint”, these tests can accurately determine whether one is the biological mother or father of a child. Often used in legal cases, this evidence is considered to be an incontrovertible proof of parenthood. While there have been questions of reliability, these are now quickly dispelled. For example, there is absolutely zero per cent of a chance that a non-biological parent will falsely test positive. On the contrary, a biological parent will be displayed as nearly one hundred percent (99.99%) accurate. So, these modern methods have all but eliminated the doubt normally associated with tests that had existed a few decades ago.

These are two of the most efficacious ways to determine whether or not you are the biological parent of a child. Thanks to modern levels of scientific accuracy, it has never been easier to approach this life-changing and potentially wonderful event.

How can you find out if you have been adopted?

Many families who embark on the adoption route will happily, when the time comes, share information with their adoptive children and be supportive of their quest to find out who their real parents are. However, in some instances, finding out you are adopted is a lengthy, secretive route, and you may need to rely on adoption services to find out the details of who your real parents are.

What do adoption services offer?

Many after adoption services will be able to help you with ranging information from none to a lot. Searching for your birth parents can be an overwhelming process so it can be nice to have the back up of an agency who know exactly where and how to start looking.

Usually, the company will firstly verify your identity, using a range of techniques from passports to the electoral roll. Establishing the agency that dealt with your adoption is the first step to success, as many of them are obliged to keep records for a number of years. If the agency that dealt with your adoption can be established easily, then the process can be fairly speedy, If this information is not available, then it can take a lot longer to find your birth parents.

After your identity has been established, and the agency have found a little more about you on a personal level such as your story, they will then start searching for the relative, be it maternal, paternal or even a sibling. The agency may need to purchase official government certificates such as birth certificates, to be 100% sure before they contact your relative.

Once this has been done, then the agency you are using can make contact with the birth relative you have been searching for. At this stage, it is worth bearing in mind that this relative may choose not to have any contact with you, so this is something you need to prepare for.

In many cases, getting help to find birth parents or siblings can end in happy reunions, and if you suspect you may be adopted it can solve a lifelong mystery for you.
