Advice about dating men
If you've ever needed a bro on your side, Baber offers the guy-friendly support style that everyone needs in this crazy dating scene we're in.We’ve all gotten advice at some point or another in our lives. “Just be yourself” takes the cake as being the worst piece of advice you can possibly get. By being yourself, and being the same person who has an ineffective dating life, you will not succeed!” I am not saying that you should lead with your money and get flashy or that you should pay for everything; but I am saying women still feel that men should pay (or at least offer to) when he takes her out on a date.I’ve known guys who were adamant about not paying for a drink or a meal or a ticket, and they were looked at by the women they took out as petty.It’s one thing if a woman is obviously trying to have you buy everything or get her things; it’s another thing entirely to offer to get the first round of drinks on a first date.Guys who read too much pick-up artist stuff tend to believe this fallacy. Use the classic dating strategies: introductions through friends, blind dates, meeting through activities (work, recreation, religious, etc.), and plain old serendipity. Through them, you'll probably meet women who also enjoy them, women who might become friends — and eventually, maybe more. So the odds are in men's favor — and women know it. Try to correct misinformation, or at least be prepared to prove that you're not the escaped serial killer who shares your name. Photos increase men's response rate 40 percent — for women, photos triple it! Beyond saying, "You're really cute and you live near me," you can add that like the woman you're contacting, you also play tennis and enjoy jazz.
Though there's a ton of "bro" humor in these pages, it's impossible to deny that Baber offers excellent, sane, and positive relationship advice to men.The biggest part of the issue is that guys often believe that relationship books are only "a girl's thing." That's just not true!
