It's time once more for the Carnival of Dating Advice, this time the
21st Edition. As always, aimed at bringing you the 'Net's latest in
thought-provoking pieces from across the spheres of dating,
relationships, psychology, and socializing.
We're serving up four choice articles today: a primer/refresher on
making a good impression, a primer on fighting and resolving conflicts
effectively and well, a theory on approach anxiety and what you can do
about it, and a bunch of fun little tricks you can do at bars (to the
delight of any and all in eyeshot).
Let's have a look...
Dale Shanklin sends us from
his self-named site an article entitled "How to
Make a Good Impression," with 11 solid pieces of advice on how to
make your mark early on, including my longtime favorite - know what you're there for.
Graham Stoney's back with a more serious piece this time from The Confident Man Project asking "Are You Afriad of Talking to Beautiful Women?" [edit: links to site removed per site owner's request due to search engine concerns; see comment section below] The intriguing premise of the article: that it all ties back to your mother, saying "If you're afraid of talking to beautiful women, ask yourself how you feel around your mother? If you had a controlling mother, you could be projecting your unresolved childhood fear of her onto hot women as an adult."
With a very practical post today is Jana Moreno from Wisdom Ink, here to talk about "How
to Fight Effectively with Your Partner." Some of the eminently
usable tips here include prefacing any criticism with praise, and
discussing things from "I," as in, "I feel this way," rather than
finger-pointing and accusing with "you."
Other Interesting Things
From a site called Barwhiz,
David Bar sends us "Bar
Tricks to Pick Up Chicks." While you probably want to stay away
from magic tricks in any real / serious pickup, for generally enjoying
yourself more at the bar and some fun little gambits to pull with
friends (and, maybe the occasional girl you feel like messing with),
these are sure to be a good time.
... and that wraps us up for the twenty-first edition of the Carnival of Dating Advice. If you're reading this and want to submit for next time, check out the guidelines here.
