Carnival of Dating Advice, 24th Edition

carnival of dating advice

Welcome to the 24th Edition of the Carnival of Dating Advice. We're winding the carnival down; this is our second-to-last go-round bringing you the best latest articles in dating, relationships, psychology, and more from around the web.

Short carnival this time, with four articles included - ranging from the gentlemanly to the emotional to reflection on success and taking action.

Here we go...


Fearless Men's John submits "Gentleman Rules Part II | How to Be a Gentleman," covering a range of tips - some you've heard before, some you probably haven't. My personal favorites from this list: nix the "my way or the highway" attitude, and give your word and keep it.


Graham Stoney of The Confident Man Project discusses "What Do You Do If You Haven't Any Success?," a follow-on post to one on sharing successes with others that address a reader's question of what you ought to do if you don't have successes to share. Graham says, "I recently recommended celebrating your successes in order to build your self-confidence. But what if you don't (seem to) have any success to celebrate?"


From Strolling Toward a Mountain of Tigers (an interesting blog in its own right), Kelly Swanberg submits "Your Chance Has Come," on why action trumps consideration. She says this about the piece: "Reflection on why it doesn't pay to wait, from the perspective of a girl who overcame her shyness and won the seduction game."

Wisdom Ink's Jana Moreno sends in "How to Put a Stop to Emotional Blackmail," on the topic of disarming emotional attacks and passive aggression in relationships. If you don't like finding yourself dealing with emotional tension, this is probably the article for you.

Wrapping Up

... and that wraps us up for the twenty-fourth edition of the Carnival of Dating Advice. If you're reading this and want to submit for next time, the 25th and final carnival, 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.

Likeability vs respect

Could you do a post on the differences between being well liked vs being well respected/ giving off a presence that people receive you as respectable or likeable? And which would make you better off?

I think I'd make for an interesting post

Re: Likeability vs respect



Certainly, yeah, that'd be a fun one. I'll put it on the list.

The Basics

These are really good articles and I would like to thank you for that. One thing though, I am first of all a huge beginner with all of this. I have read a lot of your articles and I personally think that they are great from a psychological perspective. Here's my problem, I understand all of the concepts and the reasoning behind them, but I have a hard time implementing of them when I am actually out. So my question is, what do you recommend I start with and focus all my energy on first?
Thanks for your time,

Re: The Basics



If you're finding it difficult to figure out what to focus on first, this article was designed to as a "getting started" guide with a lot of the newer content organized and linked to in it:

How to Find the Woman You Most Want: A 10-Step Process

Although if even that's a bit too much to chew on, the old "How to Get a Girl" page has a brief "New Here?" style to it - nowhere near as comprehensive, but if the former is overwhelming, the latter should be a bit easier to digest.
