Carnival of Dating Advice, 11th Edition
Welcome, friends, to the 11th edition of the Carnival of Dating Advice, with a great sampling of articles from across the blogosphere on relationships, dating, pickup, and more.
The pickings aren't as thick this week as the past several - I had
to turn away some not particularly fitting applicants at the door
(including an article on gay bars, one on how fornication is against
the Word of God, and one on how sexual predators troll online for
kids... it's always interesting). But we've still got four solid
articles here from three of our regular submitters, and one new one;
check them out below.
On with the carnival...
From Pickup Podcast, Dan M. gives us "Saying the 'Right Thing,'" a great post on not getting into the habit of always trying to have the perfect word or line to say - including a great note on a brilliant astrophysicist who tripped over his tongue searching for the right words... needlessly.
In Carnival 9, we included an article from John Mummery over at Fearless Men entitled "How to Make Her Feel Special Everyday." This time, we're able to feature that article's follow up: "Loving Gestures to Make Her Feel Special – Everyday." Here, John expands and elaborates on his 5 love languages from the first article, and discusses ways to continue growing and strengthening your relationship as it goes on.
From Live Creatively,
Lara Whitmore sends us "How
to Combat the 10 Reasons Why Love is a Battlefield," which, while
the title is admittedly a bit of a mouthful (but we're no strangers to
that here!), comes carrying a bevy of on-point problems that plague
relationships, and some words of advice on countering them all.
A Woman's Perspective
From Just Aske Elle comes
a the story of Austin, a mid-30s woman one year into her first open
relationship, in "Dating
Rules Violated." Austin discusses how her lover has changed the way
she thinks about the world - as well as the fact that she's comfortable
with her new style of relationships, despite the social pressure coming
from others on the outside.
... and that wraps us up for the eleventh edition of the Carnival of Dating Advice. If you're reading this and want to submit for next time, check out the guidelines here.
Hope you found these articles fun and useful. Tune in next time for more great posts from around the Internet.
