2014: The Year For Fear

January 3rd, 2014 by Nick Notas 11 Comments

Forest of Fear

Will you walk the path?

Each year you make new resolutions. And each year you’re disappointed by the previous goals you never accomplished.

So what’s holding you back?

Do you procrastinate? Is it too overwhelming? Do you need help but refuse to seek it out?

In my experience, those are symptoms of a deeper struggle — fear.

This year, I want you to focus on the root of the problem. If you can do that, you will set yourself up for consistent success and lasting changes.

I wrote a poem that I hope inspires you all to take this journey.

December 27th, 2013 by Nicolas Richard 4 Comments

David_Hasselhoff_FashionA few weeks ago, Nicolas from the men’s fashion blog Kinowear gave us the first part on the mistakes men make when it comes to their look and the surprisingly simple ways to avoid them.

He also taught us to recognize fashion brands by their clothing quality and not their marketing campaigns.

Today’s sequel continues with more common mistakes and how to remedy them.

How to Have Sex With Her for the First Time

December 23rd, 2013 by Nick Notas 13 Comments

Woman in Ecstacy

You and a girl are back at your place after a date. You sit close together. You go for the kiss, she kisses you back passionately, and suddenly you’re tearing each other clothes off. Boom, you’re having sex.

But sometimes, things are a bit more complicated. Many women are not nearly as aggressive or prepared. You may have had a great time together but she’s still hesitant and nervous. This happens especially with younger or inexperienced women.

She may want to take things slower. She may need reassurance that she’s doing the right thing. She may not want to be seen as a “slut”.

You need to get her…

Dating Out of Your League

December 10th, 2013 by Nick Notas 13 Comments

She's Out of My League

“No way, she’s out of my league!”

I wish I never had to hear this again.

I loathe the concept of a “league”. It’s destructive to your self-esteem and dating success. Yet the mainstream media, your family, and even you yourself perpetuate this idea.

Since everyone loves to use this as an excuse, I figured I should teach men the secret to dating women out of their “league”.

15 Texting Mistakes That Stop You From Getting the Date

November 20th, 2013 by Nick Notas 25 Comments

Blake Lively Texting

Few moments have single men more excited then getting a girl’s number. There’s an immense joy in knowing you now have an open line of communication.

Then reality sinks in. A number may be a green light, but you still have to get her on a date. And as many men come to realize, that’s easier said than done.

Lucky for you, I’ve been taking notes from every texting e-mail I receive to decipher the common pitfalls that prevent men from meeting up with women. They are:

Why People You Meet Aren’t Interested in You

November 7th, 2013 by Nick Notas 16 Comments

Question Mark Guy

Most of us have someone we feel completely comfortable talking to. That might be a best friend, a sibling, or even a parent.

With them we can easily joke and maintain a smooth, engrossing conversation. Sometimes hours pass by in minutes.

But when we talk to a new person, something changes — especially if they’re a potential romantic interest.

All of a sudden, we’re cavemen who can barely form sentences and struggle to come up with conversation topics. Worse yet, we’re met with blank looks and mono-syllabic answers from the other party. Getting a smile is like pulling teeth.

There’s nothing wrong with you, but your mindset may need some adjusting.

The Big Mistakes That Wreck Your Style, Part 1

Wreck Style 1

I know the tune all too well; I’ve heard it repeated so often and by pretty much all the guys I talk to.

You think you’ve got no problem dressing yourself, you have no desire to blow a ton of cash on your clothes, and you tell yourself that being interested in fashion isn’t really a guy’s thing.

After all, your style hasn’t let you down yet.

Think about this: if your style has never let you down, has it ever done the opposite, and done you any favors? Have you ever felt the hungry eyes of lots of ladies checking you out? The sneaky peeks of chicks who just can’t help themselves? Or, more seriously, have you ever received compliments about the way you dress?

How to Choose the Right Person for You

October 21st, 2013 by Nick Notas 12 Comments

I Choo Choo Choose You SimpsonsWhen you’re looking to build a healthy relationship, how do you make sure someone is right for you?

For a long time, I had no idea.

So I asked other people what they looked for in a partner, and I got answers like…

“A sense of humor, attractiveness, intelligence, creativity, sexual compatibility, passion, an active lifestyle, a stable career.”

I knew those qualities were important. I had some of them myself, and even looked for them in women. But something was missing. The women I really liked and dated, always broke it off first.

After a breakup, I asked a former boss who had been happily married for over 20 years for advice. He just said…

I know you’re out there. You’re one of the thousands of people every day who read my blog. But there’s still some question you have, some problem you want answered, or something you’ve learned that you want to share with others.

Here’s your chance.

Years ago, I started a Reddit community called /r/dating_advice but at the time did not have the resources to handle it myself. I let other members moderate the community and it grew into a positive, helpful place.

I invite you to contribute something — answer or post a question, submit an article or video you think is useful, or even provide some advice and start a discussion.

I plan to answer questions as often as possible, submit great content, and ensure consistent quality throughout the subreddit.

My goal is to make this an invaluable resource. You can get quick solutions to any issues, continue to learn between my articles, and even make some new friends.

5 Practical Ways to Build a Great Social Life

October 8th, 2013 by Paul Sanders 3 Comments

Freaks and Geeks Crew

We don’t just want great dates and great sex. We also long for a social life that’s fun and interesting.

If you make the right friends, they’ll not only introduce you to other cool people (including potential dates), but they’ll also give you access to their lifestyles.

When a girl sees that you’re surrounded by people who care for you, support you, and make your life more fun, she’ll want to be a part of it. She’ll realize that you’re a high value man with a lot to offer — and you won’t be depending on her to fill your schedule.

I’ve spent several years learning the skill of meeting and making friends, even though I was very shy at first. It’s easier than you think: here are five techniques that’ll help you along the way.
