  • I’ve just read this article and something strikes me. I’ve read a few dating advices for women, and it is the first one that does not promote acting like a spoilt child. I thought dating advice for men were all the same, asking them to show off a little, or at least to be the entertainer. On the other side, tips for women always tell stories about how men show bad behaviour, and this really promotes selfish, childish behaviour for women.
    Actually, there is one and only model of dating in theses articles, and they make the perfect 1960’s guide.
    And this article here is quite different as it gives really practical advice, that is sound no matter who you are. It does not tell you to act like someone you aren’t, and I thank Janet for writing such a post.
