Carnival of Dating Advice, 12th Edition
Welcome once again, to this, the 12th Edition of the Carnival of
Dating Advice. Featuring articles on pickup, seduction, relationships,
self-improvement, and more, we seek to bring you some of the best of
the Internet every two weeks, and this week is no exception.
This week's articles include two on break ups and exes, two on
managing your internals, and one on falling in love - essentially
covering the entire range of relationships, from approaching to getting
into a relationship to getting out of it and staying out of it. This week's
carnival might almost be considered a short-and-sweet Relationship 101
(with a little self-improvement thrown in for flavor).
And with that said, on with the carnival...

Lessons from The Science of Self-Control," saying, "Whether it’s about getting our emotional
lives under control, learning how to focus on our goals, or sticking to
a diet, self-control is key."

Hailing from Tamika Lanelle
- Thinking Out Loud, Tamika submits "DNR-R
(Do Not Resuscitate Relationship)," focused on talking people out of getting back together with
their exes. Personally, I'm of the same mind as Tamika here (i.e.,
getting back together with an ex is a bad move and wastes both of your
time), and for a lot of the same reasons she lists here. Though it's
written for women, it applies across the board.
