She was 29 years old. She was not dating anyone. She was okay with it, but her friends were not giving her any sleep. They would not let her be, they kept asking her when she was planning to settle down. And she would answer them by saying that when the right man came along, she would. “But there is no Mr Right”, they would respond. All men are the same, you are lucky if you get a decent one. Just settle down. And she wanted to settle down, she really did.
So how about you give that relationship a holiday break? No, I am not saying you throw her out. I am saying you give each other some space, see if it does not rejuvenate your love life. Well, I am no relationship counsellor, but I think there is something called relationship fatigue, which in simple terms means you are too much in each other’s faces. Now, some people thrive like this. They cannot get enough of each other, and every second apart is like eternity.
We were to meet for drinks, but one of the ladies, Stella, was running very late. Sam, Esther, Grace and I had been there for over an hour. But we were okay with it. Stella is a married woman. She has obligations. Well, Sam is married too, ‘but, he is a man..’. There, right there! That is what started the argument. Interestingly, it was Sam who pointed it out. I arrived last, and after settling in, asked about Stella. Grace said Stella was on her way. she was held up at home.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
