To be sociable the woman keeps nodding her head, which encourages the guy to keep talking as well.
Unfortunately, she comes away from the date thinking “What a jerk, he dominated the entire conversation.” So, how do you stop chattering?
When Venus and her younger sister, Serena, were growing up, Richard taught them the game — still then considered an upper-crust, white sport — in gang-ridden Compton, Calif., going so far as to pay neighborhood kids to hurl racial insults at his two daughters to toughen them up. magazine in February that her father used to play tapes about purchasing foreclosure properties during drives to tournaments to make sure his elementary-school-age daughters were as business savvy as they were athletically blessed. Venus battled back from the debilitating autoimmune disease Sjögren’s syndrome, diagnosed in 2011, and isn’t about to retire atop her pile of prize money ( million and counting) any time soon. Whether professionally, physically or personally, it’s about living life without limits,” says the center-court star.
If you want to make the best impression possible, take a look at some of your most common mistakes: 1. Women who are invariably better communicators will ask questions, and be attentive when listening to a response.Unfortunately on a lot of first dates, the woman may not get much of a chance to speak because some nervous guy finds it all but impossible to stop talking. Because they’re uncomfortable with the early dating process, most men will attempt to mask their discomfort with a barrage of words. Her father, Richard Williams, famously decided he would create the next female tennis star after he watched Romanian tennis player Virginia Ruzici collect a tidy ,000 check after winning a tournament. “When guys get nervous and they want to impress you, they say, ‘Oh, I can beat you at tennis,’” says the 36-year-old champ, who is currently ranked No. When she’s not collecting Olympic gold medals (four) and Grand Slam titles (23 total), she’s running two businesses: her sportswear label Ele Ven by Venus and her design firm, V Starr Interiors, both based in Florida, where she resides. “It’s definitely been an interesting road to be creatively free.” The hard-hitter recently bought out her partner in the clothing line and claims occasionally to pack boxes of her wares when time allows (which, you can imagine, is seldom). “I’m not beyond anything.” Venus had that go-getter attitude instilled in her when she was a young girl.But it wasn’t until 2015, when she bought out her manufacturing partner and became the sole owner of the company, that the clothing line began to thrive, with sales tripling in the last year, according to Venus. “If I wouldn’t wear it, it’s not making it off the cutting-room floor,” says the sports heroine, who has churned out apropos Wonder Woman-inspired wares. “My style used to be very colorful, and late last year, I went monochromatic and color-coordinated my closet.
“The second question, once you get past your own ego, is, ‘OK, would someone else wear it? If you’re not comfortable, then there’s no reason to wear it, because you’d feel self-conscious.” When Venus isn’t making over the once-stale tennis uniform, she’s revamping her own wardrobe. Everything is black, white, blue, gray, beige, brown, with a little orange, a little red and a little green.Venus first launched Ele Ven — with this mantra in mind — in 2007 as an exclusive line for Steve & Barry’s, which carried clothing by the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker.Two years later, the chain shuttered, and Venus paired up with a manufacturing company in Los Angeles.According to his Facebook page, Elio describes himself as a 'Constant thinker, realist and optimistic, feel the energy, strong, smart, slick, bipolar, fun, and blunt.John Gray is the author of Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus.Touching on the topic of sister Serena's forthcoming wedding (in an interview conducted before Serena revealed her 20-months-in pregnancy), Venus said, "I’ll wear whatever she wants me to. I’ll be dressed like Serena Williams." That's Queen Vee in a nutshell: fairly quick to defer to her beloved sister, and yet an independent woman to the core.
