Carnival of Dating Advice, 9th Edition
Welcome once again to the 9th edition of the Carnival of Dating Advice! Per usual, we are bringing to you the best of the web in pickup, seduction, and relationship advice, for your viewing pleasure.
This week's carnival features a couple of posts on getting dumped, a
pair on both getting and giving more in your relationship, and one on
recognizing if you're in a relationship that's placing unnecessary
demands on you (or your partner). And to top it all off, we've got
another great "woman's perspective" post that will help you up your
empathy and understanding for the fairer sex (and force you to overcome
a few of your biases).
On with the carnival...
From Fearless Men, John Mummery submits "How to Make Her Feel Special Every Day," offering tips and advice on showing a woman you care about her in the midst of a relationship with her. Among other interesting concepts in the article, John discusses a concept he calls "love languages," concerning 5 different types of focuses people place on how they measure attention and affection in relationships and how those focuses can differ from person to person.
Stephen Nash of Pickup Podcast gives us "Why Do Women Dump Their Boyfriends?," a post that seeks to explain a question scores of men struggle with. What's interesting to me aside from the main theme of the post is Stephen's highlighting of the bar girl / club girl phenomenon, which is something I can attest to having witnessed quite a bit too (having learned much of my skill set in bars and clubs).
Once again from LiveIt! Magazine,
Lena Ameri sends us "How
to Get What You Want in Your Relationship," including some great
tips like "model it" and "don't ignore things you like," saying, "Written by a behavior therapist, a guide
to getting what you want in your relationship."
With an important article here, Erica Brooks of Smart Musings shares "Are
You in a Codependent Relationship? 13 Questions to Ask Yourself,"
saying, "When two people have a very
close relationship, it’s natural and mentally healthy to depend on each
other for certain things. However, if one of you loses sight of who you
are, in order to please only the other person, the relationship can
become very unhealthy. One of the most troubling relationship elements
A Woman's Perspective
Just Ask Elle shares
another wonderfully honest and thoughtful story from a reader named
Heather from Texas in "Purity."
As usual, I'll encourage readers to read with empathy and to get inside
the woman's head and see things from her perspective. This is the story
of a woman who was burned by a man she loved, and who turned to
flitting from one man to another, who now has begun to believe that the
man she's kept at arms' length as no more than a friend with benefits
might be fit to be something more.
For the Ladies
Contributing another article to the thread of getting dumped, Persha
Davis of Dumped Days submits "He
Dumped Me! How To Gain Confidence & Recover From Feeling Of Not
Good Enough," the female counterpart to Stephen Nash's Pickup
Podcast post. In it, Persha focuses on the self-doubts and confidence
hits a woman can endure after being dumped, and steps you can take to
alleviate these and get back up on the saddle again.
... and that wraps us up for the ninth edition of the Carnival of Dating Advice. If you're reading this and want to submit for next time, check out the guidelines here.
