Otherwise known as what happens when I get bored.
I’ve been meaning to write this one for a long time now. It’s a follow-up to Don’t Be a Douchebag. That one was to basically help men navigate the whole online dating world so they were actually gettting dates instead of getting shut down because they were coming off as douchbags.
This one is how to make it from a woman saying she’ll go out with you to actually getting to a second or even third date.
There’s a section in there I was feeling a little bad about. (Maybe a few. It’s sort of a take-no-prisoners approach to dating advice.) But then I was on Twitter today and saw a woman describing an encounter she had on the subway with a guy who hit on her and when she moved away started calling her a bunch of names, followed her off the train, and threatened her.
That sort of thing happening is sadly common. And it shouldn’t be. A woman saying she’s not interested shouldn’t immediately lead to some guy calling her a bitch or ugly or threatening her with violence. And yet…It happens.
And for every guy out there legitimately looking to meet a woman, he needs to understand that that kind of shit is what he’s up against. Which is why certain things are not acceptable. (Like showing up at a woman’s work to plead your case when she turns you down. NO! DO NOT DO THAT. EVER.)
So, anyway. New book. If you’re struggling with getting through that first few dates, it might help.
Audio will be coming at some point but my narrator just had a kid so we’re working around that, because priorities.
