    This Is Why Dating Sucks For Men (And How To Fix It)

    This Is Why Dating Sucks For Men (And How To Fix It)

    Let's be honest: dating can be a trial. For a lot of men, dating isn't something you enjoy, it's something you endure. From trying to meet women, to getting a number, to actually getting women out on a date... it's more like pulling teeth than meeting a potential partner.
    Today, I want to give you all some advice I wish I had gotten back when I first started dating. Because, if you’re checking out these episodes, then the odds are good that, frankly, you think dating… kinda sucks. And in fairness: you’re not entirely wrong. Dating for men can be kind of awful. But not for the reasons you might think.
     
    In fact, the biggest reason why dating can suck is because of how much harder we men make it for OURSELVES and in the process, make ourselves miserable… even when we think we’re doing everything right. 

    So let's look at 5 reasons why dating can SUCK for men… and what you can do about it.
    SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:
    Why men have a conflict mentality when it comes to dating The secret to passing women's "tests" Why so much of what you believe about women, dating and sex is WRONG. How guys get caught in a cycle of dating failure Why you're taking the wrong advice about how to meet women ...and so much more.

    Building Incredible Emotional Strength And Powerful Confidence

    Right now, we are living through the most stressful, even outright traumatic year that most of have ever faced in our lives. Even if you’re in a relatively good place, we’re all getting hit with bad news, more stories of police violence, political corruption, the continuing pandemic, even potential fallout from the election. It can be incredibly hard to have a positive attitude and solid confidence. It can be hard not to look around and say “how am I supposed to have the strength to keep going?" 
    But you need that emotional strength, powerful confidence and positive attitude more than ever. And the first step is to recognize the things that are stealing your happiness and sabotaging your life and learn how to build the emotional strength it takes to persevere, that appealing confidence and the positive attitude that can help build strong relationships and help you face and overcome the challenges in your life that seem impossible.
    SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:
    Why one simple word can ruin your self-confidence How we convince ourselves that we're powerless... when we're not The mistake we make that makes us miserable... no matter what we do How we talk ourselves out of success Why your rivals can be your greatest allies ... and so much more.

    The Secret to Healthier, Stronger Relationships

    The Secret to Healthier, Stronger Relationships

    Have you struggled with relationships that were bad for you?
    Maybe you’ve been in a toxic relationship with somebody who was always manipulating you into ways of getting what they wanted, leaving you feeling like a doormat. Maybe you had friends who treated you badly or would pressure you into going along with jokes at your expense or doing things that made you uncomfortable or went against your values.
    Or perhaps you’ve had family members who would leverage guilt or reciprocity to make you do whatever they want, even if it’s a huge inconvenience to you or emotionally draining or even damaging. Or you were constantly being made to feel as though your interests, desires or wants were unimportant or inconvenient… even if it’s simply “don’t treat me like sh*t.”
    One of the most important things you can do to ensure you have strong, healthy relationships — with your wife or girlfriend, your friends, your family or even your co-workers — is to have strong boundaries.
    Today, I'm going to teach you how to build strong boundaries... and how to enforce them.
    SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:
    What one viral video teaches us about toxic relationships Why abusers and toxic people prey on people with weak boundaries How abusers trick you into lowering your boundaries for them How to push back when people push against your boundaries The most important part of maintaining healthy relationships ...and so much more

    This Is What Nobody Tells You About Having ADHD

    Growing up, I knew I was struggling with things that other people seemed to be able to do without a second thought. I thought I was just lazy, that I needed to be more disciplined and to take things more seriously. But it never worked, and I never understood why.
    Now, after a lifetime of searching, I finally have the answers. 
    This week, I want to talk with you about my experiences with having been diagnosed with ADHD as an adult, how it can affect you and your relationships, and my experiences with getting diagnosed and getting treated. 
    Here's what happened.
    SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:
    What people get wrong about ADHD Why so many people don't get diagnosed or treated when they need it How having ADHD can affect your confidence and your relationships Why people with ADHD have anxiety and depression How getting treatment has changed my life ...and so much more.

    The 5 Things You Need To Know About Dating

    The 5 Things You Need To Know About Dating

    The #1 reason why so many men struggle with dating is very simple: they don't know what it takes to be successful with women. Attraction isn't a checklist; having all the right "stats" isn't going to magically make you attractive to women. Learning to succeed with women isn't about having the right car or the right body, it's about learning how to become your best, most desirable self. 
    That's why this week, I'm going to teach you the 5 things YOU need to know in order to succeed with women, become the man you've always wanted to be and build the love life you've always wanted. 
    SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:
    Why the men who have everything women want still struggle with dating How to build your dream life... by working backwards from success Why attraction ISN'T about your body, your height, or your income How to escape the trap of your comfort zone Why your own brain tricks you into failing with women ...and so much more.

Listen to this guy!

Female here, long time listener because it’s so great to hear such good dating and life advice. Men, check it out, this guy knows what’s up.

Ice Game Reviews ,

Wow

Seriously I feel like the first episode I listened to was a life changer for me! Thank you so much for putting this content out there. The one I listened to was about fear of rejection and I never related to something more. I think I will listen to it daily while I do the other work that you advised on. Thanks so much! Peace and love to you!

I wish all single men would listen to this

Inspired by the recent posts about online dating: one month ago, I married a man I met online who followed all of the suggested rules for online dating. It was about four years ago, so he hadn’t listened to these posts- but we’re a case study of why and how these behaviors work. I think that women in general would be more open and less suspicious if all single men followed these directives.
