Dating can be HARD. No one is denying that fact. Actually, everyone seems to be so aware of just how difficult dating can be that everywhere you look there are dating guides, advice, and books of some sort. These things sell like hot cakes, too. The problem is that the majority of these Dating Guides aren’t worth the space they take up online to advertise them. If you think about it honestly, can there REALLY be that many dating gurus and experts around that are taking the time to write books?
Are Dating Guides Useful?
Many people do purchase these online eBooks. They also order the physical books that promise to help get that man or that woman that you want. Most of the people that author these books should be sued for false advertising because the only thing they’re an expert in is how to make passive income. The dating guides, themselves, are very often a huge disappointment to the people that buy them. All except for the books I’ve read from the Theodore Lovelace Relationship Series. His eBooks are an extremely insightful read, clearly identifying relational challenges while offering practical solutions. And I must say, the principles mentioned in this author’s books really stuck with me and made me think long after I finished the series. Mr. Lovelace’s books actually guided me all the way through the dating experience into my current relationship which I’ve had for well over a year.
So, returning the point of this article, are most dating guides really useful? The answer to this question is yes and no. For people that always seem to have bad luck with picking the wrong people to try to date, or those that are simply too shy to deal with the dating arena, these dating guides can be helpful. There can be some useful advice in these books by the REAL experts on the subject of dating in this new age. The problem is that many of the so-called “dating gurus” aren’t actually experts at all, as readers will notice almost from the first page of the book.
Many dating guides instruct men to behave in such a way around women that they’re more likely to be slapped than dated. Unless men are in a certain part of town and around a particular type of women, they’re not going to be successful by using the “tips” in eBooks written by men that have bedded a significant number of women around the world. Of course, you may just WANT a series of one night stands. If so, by all means, take the advice these Lotharios (seducer of women) are handing out.
On the other hand, there are just as many of these devious books for women as for men. Women aren’t going to get a lot from them unless they’re completely new to the dating game. However, is a 16-year-old girl REALLY going to buy dating guides that cater to women that are “seasoned?” If so, it’s only going to confuse her more than ever.
If you feel that you need a bit of help with dating, you probably have friends that will be more than happy to offer advice. Many times, that’s the best route to take. However, if you’re really serious about the advice you need, do your research before ordering just any of these dating guides online. Dig into the author’s background and find out what their qualifications are for handing out dating advice.
Keep in mind that helpful advice doesn’t always have to come from someone with “Dr.” in front of their name. Lots of times, someone with “real life” experience can be even more helpful because they’re real and have lived everything they’re telling you. Like Mr. Lovelace for example, who I mentioned earlier, he seems to offer very timely, proven, and practical advice in his easy to read book series.
The choice is yours as to what you feel is going to help you the most.
