Diamond Ring Specialist Reveals the UK’s Biggest Love Dilemmas

Angelic Diamonds, a leading UK diamond ring specialist, has launched a new interactive called ‘Love Dilemmas’. The feature allows you to seek relationship advice to some of the most searched questions online, from falling in love to breaking up and everything else in between.

Love Dilemmas offers a light-hearted and interactive way for lovers – or ex-lovers – to find helpful answers to their relationship problems. The data was collected using Google search volumes – searches were included when they experienced a high increase in searches. A staggering 103 search terms were compiled into seven categories: dating, affection, relationships, love, engagement, marriage, and breakups.

Using the interactive feature, users will be presented with fun cards posing the dilemma along with the search increase percentage. By clicking on the card, Angelic Diamonds’ answer is revealed. Some of the biggest searches include “Why do I self-sabotage relationships?”, “How soon is too soon to propose?”, “What does ‘bub’ mean in a relationship?”, and “When should you have your first kiss in a relationship?”.

It is hoped that Angelic Diamonds can provide some guidance to all the romantics out there wanting to learn more about love. From finding out what chemistry means in a relationship to how to kiss with braces, the jeweller has provided a bank of agony aunt answers. While they aren’t always straightforward yes or no answers, the interactive was designed to provide advice and comfort for users to make their own decisions on what they think is best. For those looking for short and simple answers, Love Dilemmas might be the ultimate relationship tool.

CEO of Angelic Diamonds Neil Dutta said: “We want to support those out there who are either hopeful or lucky in love. This is a great way for people to get the advice they need for things that are on their minds.”

The last year has made it difficult for relationships to flourish, which can be disheartening or even make us feel lonely. By opening our minds and our hearts to a healthy relationship, dating, or even marriage, things can start to get back on track.

What does gaslighting mean in a relationship? (600% increase in searches YOY)

Expert Advice:

Gaslighting can be very difficult to cope with within a relationship, especially because it is so often hard to identify. Gaslighting is a form of manipulation in which someone makes you doubt yourself or question your own perception. In an intimate relationship, it can cause insecurity and confusion, and once you’ve identified it, you need to take action. Be sure to talk to others outside of your relationship so that you don’t feel alone, try to remain confident in your own view of events, and confront your partner about their actions.

How to be romantic in a relationship (267% increase in searches YOY)

Expert Advice:

Noticing your partner is a powerful way to make them feel loved. Anytime your partner needs some verbal appreciation, tell them three things you love about them. Try to find new things every time. It’s easy when you have romantic mindfulness. Use your senses to connect.

Physical intimacy is imperative for closeness and romance but erotic communication that connects a woman to her beauty is something women crave. We want to be adored and found irresistible and we want details! Sometimes this kind of verbal appreciation can take practice for men of few words. But the effort to tell your lady what you love about her frequently pays off in the long run. Men love to do a good job and be the champions.

How to deal with trust issues in relationships (150% increase in searches YOY)

Expert Advice:

The most important thing a couple can do is be proactive by talking about their needs and expectations within the relationship.

How to spice up your relationship (175% increase in searches YOY)

Expert Advice:

Variety and novelty are what keep relationships exciting. Since there are five kinds of romance, try ideas from every category. Noticing your partner is a powerful way to make them feel loved. Thank your partner every time they do something well or that you appreciate. Use your senses to connect. Physical intimacy is imperative for closeness and romance. Playful adventures keep you young at heart. Try a hot make out in the back seat of your car, spoil your partner in bed, try a new cuisine, or have her model sexy lingerie for you.

Why is sex important in a relationship (53% increase in searches YOY)

Expert Advice:

Physical intimacy is part of good health. When we touch, we co-regulate and calm each other’s nerves. Pleasure resets our nervous system. Lovemaking releases powerful hormones and feel-good neurotransmitters. We are symbiotic naturally and the more we bring our hearts, our gaze, our breath, our touch, and our love, the closer and more connected we feel. That being said, not everyone craves physical intimacy, and that is ok too.

How often should you have sex in a relationship? (24% increase in searches YOY)

Expert Advice:

It really depends on the two people in the relationship. Each relationship dynamic is different, and people need different things for intimacy within a relationship. It might be a daily occurrence for some couples, others a couple of times a week, and some when the mood hits them. The important callout is to have a level of intimacy within your relationship that makes the two of you most comfortable and connected.

How long is too long without sex in a relationship? (24% increase in searches YOY)

Expert Advice:

There is no magic number of times a person should have sex in a relationship. It depends on the partners and their level of health, libido, and desire. If you and your partner have a commitment to keeping your lovemaking on the upward pleasure spiral, you’ll want to make love more than you have time for. A good rule of thumb is intimacy twice a week. Scheduling play time where you learn new things makes the relationship bloom and keeps the new relationship energy high. You can learn new pleasuring skills, new positions, try new locations… there are many ways to keep sex fun, so you want to do it. The health benefits are worth the intention to keep your desire burning

How to keep a marriage alive (100% increase in searches YOY)

Expert Advice:

A successful marriage is where two people can accept one another for who they are without forcing them to change into who they want them to be. There is a saying, “Women marry men hoping to change them. And men marry women hoping they will stay the same.” If you can marry someone and look at the current state of who they are and be happy with that person in their current state, you will likely have a satisfying relationship.

Why is marriage so hard? (75% increase in searches YOY)

Expert Advice:

Marriage does make two people come together, and naturally, there will be some more self-awareness and change. But the key is easing into that process with the acceptance of who someone is currently and building on that foundation. Trust, good communication, resolving conflict respectfully and pretty quickly, and having like-mindedness on some level help support a healthy union.

When do you fall in love? (67% increase in searches YOY)

Expert Advice:

The ingredients to a long term, committed, happy relationship requires that both partners have the capacity to be a good partner. Both must have great communication skills (which can be learned) connection, compatibility, chemistry, and the single most important quality is that you have a shared vision for the future. When their happiness is as important to you as your own, when both of you are “all in” and are devoted to each other, that is what real, mature adult love is all about.

What does it mean to love someone? (23% increase in searches YOY)

Expert Advice:

Love is a choice. Love is connection. Love is a feeling. Love is a behaviour. Love is the juiciest part of life. Love opens our hearts, expands our world, and brings a smile to our lips. For love we make commitments and agreements to share our life with another in good times and bad.

When we pledge our love to another, we say to them: I will love you on your good days and your bad days. I will be your safe place to land. I will share with you my attention, affection, and appreciation. With you I will become a better person and with me you will become a better person. I will be your best friend, lover, partner, and protector. (and, if things don’t work out, I won’t sell you out) Love is as much about giving as it is about receiving. And it’s also about being willing to forgive. And let’s not forget, LOVE is also about truth-telling. Love is WHO we are. Love is why we are here.

What to write on dating profile (23% increase in searches YOY)

Expert Advice:

Keep it succinct but authentic. Give people a sense of who you are as a person. Show what you enjoy doing and put out a few things (not everything) that you desire in a partner. Dating (even online dating) is a trial period in which you can get to know someone. Insert some humour and include a sense of the values you have in the person you are dating.
