At some point in the recent past in North America, dancing started being considered a non-masculine thing to do. Men in other cultures don’t even question whether they should dance or not. We’ve gotten into the bad habit of not even trying to dance. Women hate that. They grew up loving “Flashdance,” “Dirty Dancing,” “Save the Last Dance,” and “Step Up.” Love for the man who keeps the beat is inherent in women. So, it’s time to drop the attitude and refuse to be a walking American stereotype. Junior high students sit on opposite sides of the dance floor because they’re scared of the opposite sex. You want to wake up in bed with the opposite sex? The first step toward that could be a two-step and spin move. So, here’s why real men dance — and you want to be a real man, don’t you?

When I polled the women he’s recently dated to discover just what the heck this dude was doing wrong, I discovered five pertinent mistakes that he — and so many men in his position — continually make. So, in light of helping men actually have a shot at dating the hot new girl they fancy for more than a nanosecond, here are my top five mistakes guys make early on that scare women away.

It’s not unusual for men and women to be friends. You certainly have female friends, and your girlfriend no doubt has male friends, but if her best friend is a guy, well, that’s a different story.
Whether or not men and women can truly be friends — best friends — has long been a subject of debate, and there’s no way that we’re going to settle that debate here. Suffice it to say, for the purposes of this article, we’re operating under the assumption that heterosexual men and women cannot be best friends; sex always gets in the way.

You got dumped again, huh? We’d say “sorry about your luck” if we thought luck had anything to do with it. To be perfectly honest with you, however, the fact that you keep getting dumped over and over again is probably your fault. Sorry, pal. Now it’s time for some tough love.
We know it’s easier to believe that all women everywhere are crazy: They don’t understand you; they don’t know what they want, etc. But isn’t it infinitely more likely that the cause of your frequent relationship failures is, in fact, you? Might it not be the case that you are the reason why you got dumped — again? Read more … Keep reading »
