Over the past 10 years as a relationship expert, I’ve written a whole lot of dating profiles. From teachers, to doctors, to CEOs, and even best selling authors, I’ve had the pleasure of helping people from all walks of life. And while most of the people I’ve worked with are intelligent, well-rounded, and perfectly capable people, it wasn’t until they outsourced a professional profile writer that they will able to find true online dating success. If you’ve been having less than stellar results online, or are even just beginning, I would strongly urge you to consider hiring a professional profile writer of your own. Here are five pieces of dating advice as to why.

There’s a saying I have in life as a relationship expert. Date someone from common backgrounds. Why? Because you understand one another. When you have a common background, grew up the same way, in similar neighborhoods and schooling, then you’ve got a lot of familiarity between the two of you. Now it doesn’t mean that if you’ve grown up differently it can’t work out at all. What matters most is how you took your childhood experience and manifested it into adulthood. If your concerned about whether or not your differing cultures will cause relationship problems, follow my dating advice as someone who has made it work personally.

Dating advice that will help you date outside your culture successfully.

Relationship Advice: What To Do When You’re No Longer In Love?

By David Wygant

This could be the easiest question that I could ever answer for anyone. What do you do when you’re no longer in love? Here’s what the typical person does. They stay in the relationship. That’s right. 80 percent of the people that are no longer in love stay in the relationship for an endless amount of time because they feel guilty that they actually no longer love their partner. So they’ll sign up for a life of misery in order to protect their partner’s feelings. When in reality it’s ridiculous because if you’re miserable and you don’t even love your partner anymore, your partner is definitely feeling that on so many different core levels. The two of you can just sit around the house, make each other miserable. Sleep in the same bed or separate rooms. Never touch one another, never have sex, but yet stay together for the sake of the children. Or stay together for the sake of not wanting to hurt someone instead of confronting relationship problems head on.

By David Wygant

This is always a controversial subject, especially in today’s modern “swipe dating.” 93 percent of the people that go out on a date meet on Bumble, Tinder, Hinge or Match will go home that night and literally get back online to see whether or not there’s somebody else that’s better. Somebody that might be cuter. Somebody that might have a better body. These online dating services are a brilliant marketing ploy to get people to think that there’s a huge paradox of choice. It’s literally like going on Amazon, but instead you get to look at all the men and women out on the market. You see, by getting on all these devices constantly, there’s no reason to ever settle for somebody that’s awesome. So we continually get on this treadmill hoping that there’s something better. I personally have been a victim of this as well. I’ve been single for four years, and even that’s with all my knowledge in the dating field as a relationship expert. I have definitely had my share of going out with somebody and then going home and swiping to see if she is out there. Whatever the version of she or he is, you know that they might be out there, because every day the inventory is changing. Just like your favorite supermarket. Why buy a mushy avocado when you can go buy a brand new one the very next day?

As someone who lives in New York City, I can say with full enthusiasm that it is one of the greatest cities in the world. The food! The culture! The diversity! And of course, the incredible women are right up there with any other city. Unfortunately, one aspect of city life often let’s women down though, and it affects their ability to forge meaningful relationships. And while it’s easy to claim that men in the city just don’t want to settle down, I’ve personally found that this is far from the case for most men I’ve worked with or encountered. Sometimes it’s just a matter of avoiding certain mistakes and making the right adjustments to find love. In this article I will be discussing four big reasons many women often struggle to find relationships in big cities, and dating advice to help you avoid these issues.

Relationship Advice: Love At First Sight From a Guy’s Perspective

Posted In: Love, Relationship Advice Articles
Cupid's Pulse Article: Relationship Advice: Love At First Sight From a Guy’s Perspective

By Robert Manni

Although some argue against it, there are studies that show the phenomenon known as “love at first sight” is possible. Partially because we are all connected at a spiritual level, it can be argued that people can actually “know” someone almost instantly, including if they are a good fit for them. But others say that we need to know someone through their actions first before truly falling in love. I think a combination of those intense beginning feelings and the gradual reveal of the  person melding with those passionate first impressions makes a case for love at first sight. Remember, modern dating and relationships can be tricky, so heed the following relationship advice on taking additional steps to validate our initial reactions saves yourself from heartache later.

By David Wygant

I’m going to tell you why it’s so hard to date. And I’m going to blame it all on the women. I bet I got your attention, and any women listening or reading this right now- need to pay attention. It’s so hard to date because women are so flaky these days. You meet a woman on an online dating app. You text back and forth. You get her phone number. You spend time talking to her on the phone. You set up a date night, which you’re excited about. And then, you send her a text the morning of the date to confirm.  And right away you get a text back, and she comes up with one of her excuses: “I’ve got a work project that came up.” You think to yourself, ‘man, that’s the same type of excuse I’ve been giving women this whole time.’ You almost feel like you’re being blown off by a dude. Well, you are;  because women are the flakiest beings on the planet.

There she is standing at the bar. Tall. Beautiful. Long flowing blonde hair. Think. Think. There must be a pickup line that will work…  Okay, I’ve got it!  

“Damn girl.  Are you okay?”  

“Yes, why?”

“Because damn it must have hurt when a beautiful Angel like you fell from heaven.”

Cue the eye roll, the grabbing of her closest friend’s arm, and the immediate exit. And just like that, bye bye beautiful blonde. If you’ve used cheesy pick up lines at any point in your life, odds are this may have happened to you at some point. While this may have been a terrible pick up line for the sake of the overall argument I’m about to get into, the question is, can pick up lines ever actually work? Well, that depends on a number of factors that I’ll explain to you in the following dating advice.

There is nothing worse than being in a relationship with a “taker.” I’ve been down this road before and let me tell you, it’s a pretty challenging battle to win. First off, takers never think they’re takers. They don’t see their behavior at all. As a matter of fact, they think what they’re doing is okay. I was once with a woman that was not affectionate at all. For those of you who have read the Five Love Languages, my love language equals words of affirmation and physical touch. So when your love language is not being fulfilled, you feel like you’re absolutely dying inside. You don’t feel loved at all. Heed this relationship advice so you can avoid being taken advantage of by a taker.

There’s nothing like being in the doghouse. As a relationship expert, I can assure you it’s the worst part of getting into a fight with a woman. Getting sent to the doghouse without our favorite toys is never any fun. The next time you’re in the doghouse, make sure you bring your iPad or have your phone with you so you can sit there and play on your phone and text your friends to figure out exactly how to get out of the mess you’re in. Sounds fun, doesn’t it? Well, I’ve got a better idea. An idea that’s based on something called communication and is a sure way to help you avoid future relationship problems.

We are all about finding “the one.” What do you think we are all dating for? We’re dating to find the one of course! But the thing is, there’s really no such thing as the one. Life is just a series of ones. Throughout our entire existence, dating and relationships, everybody you’ve ever fallen in love with, you’ve thought was the one. You thought the one from high school might have been the one, the one from college might have been the one, the one that you found in your 20s might have been the one. It doesn’t really matter what age you’re at. As a relationship expert, I can tell you with certainty that whoever you’re looking at is the one for right now, and hopefully this is the one that will take you through the end of time. So with that in mind I want you to realize that every other person you thought was the one, was not.  So now with the following dating advice let’s do things differently.

By David Wygant

Are you one of those guys who thinks getting in touch with your soft side makes you a wimp? Do you feel like you’re a wussy if you get in touch with your soft side and actually show people that you have a heart? Well, let me tell you something: I’ve been the masculine guy my whole life and I can honestly say I’ve got a soft side. I’m proud of it. Now granted, I’m probably not the guy who’s going to go and build the barbeque grill, put furniture together, or say, put a car up on jacks and change the oil myself. But, I’ve always been a man. I don’t really cry at anything. And when I do cry at a sappy movie, I make sure no one sees me doing it. Without our soft sides, we’re really out of balance and when we’re out of balance, a woman’s not going to show up in our life. Have you ever heard the term ‘being a big mush’? Well, in my experience as a relationship expert, being a big mush is actually a pretty good thing. I like to be a big mush. I think being a big mush is really important. And if you want my dating advice, I think a lot of people need to really start understanding that that’s what a true, masculine man is all about.

Imagine standing in a crowded bar with the music blasting, the lights down low, someone’s drink spilled on you, and a bar fight breaking out five feet away. Definitely not the way to meet the man of your dreams, is it? Your quest to find your knight in shining armor is not looking too good, so why not just stay home curled up on the couch with your computer on your lap and search for a guy online?

If your fear of being catfished (remember Manti Te’o?) is stopping you, just wait until it’s last call and the lights come on. Did he really have a biker ponytail and face tattoo the whole time? Online dating can save you so much time and money while you search around for someone you really like.  In addition, you will be able to research potential matches, have time to plan your responses, and use actual science to help you find matches.

A great way to start online dating is by trying out a few sites and seeing which you like best. Luckily, reputable sites like these that also offer free trials can be easily found at DatingAdvice.com. By signing up for these free trials, you can usually peruse others images, profile text, and sometimes even contact them.  Either way, you will be able to choose a site that you are most comfortable with and that matches your dating goals.
