The last week of August brought us all a very special treat: one of the most obscenely misguided and generally wrongheaded blog posts ever to grace the World Wide Web, "How to Talk to a Woman Who Is Wearing Headphones." If you’ve somehow managed to miss the scathing criticism making the rounds across the internet for the last few days, "I'll Show You Quick and Easy Ways to Instantly Experience More Success With Women" the website claims, but between overpriced books and incredibly bizarre testimonials to Bacon's work, you'll find an entire blog chock-full of advice that the dating "expert" was willing to part with free-of-charge.If you have lots of time to kill, all 80 some-odd pages are filled with the same sort of ham that you get in the post that went viral; but in order to save your sanity, we've broken down some of the craziest bits for easy consumption."I think I was kind of clueless and oblivious," admits Melcher, who spent his early 20s lingering in the friend zone."Women wanted the bad boys." Everyone probably knows a Mr. He's the guy who patiently listens to a girl complain without interrupting her.Always open the door for her and always be chivalrous that way. As a matter of fact, put the cell phone on vibrate. When you walk into a restaurant, put your hand on the small of her back and allow her to go in first as you slowly guide her with your hand.Too often nowadays, people just go and meet one another at a set location. Actually picking her up is a little dating advice of mine that makes a big impression. Don’t have the ringer buzz, ring, or do anything that will disturb your date night because you want to give all of your attention to her. At the end of the night, especially on your first date, give her a hug and maybe a little kiss on the lips and that’s it. If she met you on a date, text her when you get home or tell her to text you when she gets home so you know that she’s home safe and sound.
If she talks about her children a lot, asks if you have children of your own or questions whether you want children someday, especially early in your conversation, chances are good that she’s looking for a husband/replacement father and is trying to weed out any men who won’t take on that role.
Being a kind and genuine guy is always a good thing and there are a lot of good men like this who do quite fine in life.
I will also say that whether it’s a friend or love interest nobody wants to keep company for long periods of time with an overall nasty person.
If you won’t tolerate crap behaviour from your friends, then don’t accept it from a mate either. We have all been there at some point in our dating lives where “playing it nice” left us feeling burned by someone we cared about.
With that said, there is a such a thing as being too nice…letting people walk all over you. It’s all a learning process, so it’s necessary to go through these experiences.
