5 Books That Will Improve Your Dating Life
You may have read The Game and Double Your Dating, but this list of books contains a more in-depth, profound wealth of knowledge you can use to improve your dating skills:
1. Swoon by Betsy Prioleau
Prioleau allows readers to vicariously experience the exploits of some of the greatest seducers known to history, from the well known (including Casanova) to the obscure (such as Gabriele D’Annunzio).
The author effectively quantifies some of the more abstract, natural ways some of the most prolific libertines have gone about attracting women in ways you can apply to your own dating life. The anecdotes and advice in this book are welcome respites from all the talk of DHVs, negs and alpha males that has proliferated throughout the dating-advice scene.
2. The Five Flirting Styles by Jeffrey A. Hall
A lot of men become one-dimensional in the way they approach women, but Hall breaks down five distinct styles in which men and women prefer to approach, be approached and interact with the opposite sex. Each of the styles he discusses are based on extensive research.
If you internalize the information in this book, you will be able to tailor your interactions with each woman you meet to the manner which best attracts her.
3. Decoding Love by Andrew Trees
Learning common “PUA” teachings can only get you so far.
Looks, level of education and income have bigger influences on the quality of women men have access to (and eventually end up dating and marrying) than most dating coaches would have you believe. You don’t need those things to have an abundant dating life, but they’re two of many factors that can help stack the deck in your favor.
Trees breaks down many different elements that affect whether two people feel attraction for each other, some within your control and others left to genetic chance, to give you a broader understanding of the board on which the game is played.
4. Boys Adrift by Leonard Sax
This book isn’t specifically about attracting women, but it addresses an even more important issue: the perpetual boyhood many men enter into nowadays.
A lot of young boys in this day and age continue to act like boys into adulthood. Sax, a psychologist and family physician, analyzes why. Some boys grow up without any male role-models in their lives. Others care about their video games more than their schoolwork.
The easy and unlimited availability of porn has caused erectile dysfunction in a growing number of young men, and decreased their motivation to meet women in real life.
Whatever the issue, some men never learned how to act like men, and they’re less appealing to women as a result. This book can help you figure out how to recapture the ambition that women find attractive.
5. Awareness by Anthony De Mello
This book doesn’t directly talk about attracting women either, but the author writes in depth about how you can avoid falling into the mental trap of allowing your past regrets and future anxieties to influence your present.
De Mello was a Jesuit priest, but Awareness isn’t overtly religious. Instead of inundating the reader with Christian doctrine, the book focuses more on meditation, presence and the mental fortitude to be unaffected by your external environment.
