Carnival of Dating Advice, 10th Edition
It's time for the 10th edition of the Carnival of Dating Advice!
Bringing you a selection of the best articles on dating, relationships,
sex, psychology, and more from across the web.
We've got eight articles for you in total this week, with an unusual
number of pieces offering more or less profound looks into human
psychology. In addition to these, we have for your sampling some hard
hitting advice against blaming others, some unconventional advice on how long
to wait before you start dating again after a breakup, some unexpected
advice on the most powerful tool in the bedroom, and a couple of tips
for women on knowing if that shy guy friend is into them and a rather
humorous way to go about knowing if that man they're seeing is "The
On with the carnival...
Foxy of The Golden Fox Girl submits a profound and thought-provoking article entitled "An Open Letter to My Ex-Husband." While it starts off sounding like a simple tale of a relationship gone awry, it turns out that's just the backstory, and where Foxy takes it is something very much worth reading.
Tamika from Tamika Lanelle - Thinking Out Loud sends us the strong piece "It's Not Them, It's You." Her message is one I've tried to get across to many friends, students, and mentees - both male and female - any number of times: that if you're having the same probelm again and again, particularly one with other people, the fault isn't theirs - it's yours.
Point Counseling Services, Michael Salas submits "Love
Worth Waiting For," an insight into the post-breakup behavior of
most people, and a rather surprising prescription: wait six months after a breakup before
getting into a new relationship.
TherapyDoc of Everyone
Needs Therapy dives into what's going on in the heads of those who
stray from their relationships in "How
to Have an Affair." The article, perhaps deceptively titled, is not about the "how;" rather, it is
an exploration of the "why," instead.
On Pickup Podcast, David
Shade writes "Your
Most Powerful Tool in the Bedroom is Not Your 'Tool,'" recommending
an unconventional tool for bringing women to climax: your voice.
A Woman's Perspective
While it's a man who's doing the writing (a man named Todd
Mayfield), this article submitted by John of Fearless Men called "5 Thoughts
Women Wish Men Knew" is all about understanding things from a
female point of view. While I don't agree with all of these as being
things men should do (if they
want to actually succeed with girls), they are all things women often think men should do, and some of
them, especially listening without trying to fix things and making
confident decisions, are things you certainly ought to do.
For the Ladies
Chris from Ladies Should Know sends in a guide for women on figuring out if that shy guy they know likes them with "Tuesday Ten: How to Know If He Likes You" (although, if I catch any guys who are readers of this site doing any of this to girls, you're getting voted off the island). Good pointers for a girl who's just not sure if that guy friend of hers is into her.
... and that wraps us up for the tenth edition of the Carnival of Dating Advice. If you're reading this and want to submit for next time, check out the guidelines here.
