Hey guys! I'm currently writing the next section to the Improve Your Social Skills guide. It's going to be about dating, because romantic relationships are such a big deal, and it's important to know how to do them well.
I want to cover both the social skills side of dating (like how to meet potential partners, how to let someone know that you are interested, and how to behave on a date) as well as the relationship side of dating (like how to manage conflict, how to have healthy relationships, and how to have good communication in a relationship.)
I'm very excited, because the dating section will be the first full-length section added to Improve Your Social Skills since the site launched in January. Improve Your Social Skills already has a ton of great content, but I've got ideas for so much more, and it's exciting that some of those ideas are finally coming to fruition.
As always, I'm eager to hear your feedback, so please let me know if you have any thoughts or suggestion for the next dating section. Look for this new section in the next 1-3 weeks, and thanks for your support of Improve Your Social Skills!
I like your other advice but am not ready to take the dive for the membership yet. Once you get this up, please let me know, and I will certainly take another look.
Glad to find another Dan around these parts 🙂 I recommend you bookmark the site and check back in a week or two—the wait should not be too long, and if you come back and read through the rest of the site again it will give you a better sense of if membership is right for you. You can also email me and I’ll shoot you an email once the dating guide is up if you prefer a more personalized service 😉
Don’t take this the wrong way, but what do you think your qualifications are to give advice about dating? How much personal experience do you have with it? In your reddit AMA didn’t you say you’ve only dated two people?
There are already a ton of people who cover this topic, many who have a lot more expertise and life experience than you do. I have this sinking feeling that you may think you know more than you actually do. If anything, I’d strongly recommend if you do give dating advice, that you don’t charge for it.
It’s true that I’ve only been in two relationships. But I don’t think this disqualifies me to give advice on dating. I think that having time between relationships means I have a better perspective on each relationship than people who just slide from one relationship to another.
I know what it’s like to be single, and how to approach a relationship from a place of being single (which is different from sliding from one relationship right into another.) I’ve also been the go-to advice guy for many friends with their relationships, and I’ve learned a lot about the good and bad side of relationships through that process.
Plus, all of my relationships were long-term relationships, and the dating guide is going to focus on long-term relationships exclusively. I agree I’m not qualified to give advice about picking up people in bars or jumping from one relationship to another. But if you want to have a healthy, fulfilling, long term relationship, I have some good advice to offer 🙂
I am a 40ish woman and I have dated an Asperger for over a year…we actually moved in together. He seemed like the perfect match for me (we had so much in common) and I still love him. I just don’t know if I can spend the rest of my life in that situation. I broke it off with him 6 months ago. I guess I would consider getting back with him because, as I stated, I still love him. I fear more than anything the damage that I am sure he has done with horrible…albeit deranged stories I am certain he has told his family about me.
I would be happy to share my stories with you as well as suggestions for how things could have been handled differently. About me… I was married for 24 years prior to this relationship, I have raised three daughters. I am a Human Resources Manager, so behavior and personality topics are something that I have first hand experience with as far as the study of as well as practical applications. BTW…Lisa Moore is an alias.
I hope to hear from you. A little advice would be nice 😉
