David deangelo interviews with dating gurus 58 interviews
Since then, I’ve been getting extremely annoying emails about how to “CATCH and KEEP” a man, like he’s a freakin’ trout or something. Don’t sleep with a guy “too soon” (time frame not included–so just guess) 2.
Don’t be “predictable”, or his attraction will magically end (must I be in a different country each time he calls…? Don’t discuss any emotional issues at all, ever, God forbid, or it’s all over, period 4. The way to create a great emotional connection with a man is to never burden him with your emotions.
Do girls leave you confused as to whether or not they like you? If you read her signals wrong you risk rejection and embarrassment.
Or worse, you blow it with a girl who wanted to kiss you.
The stock trade in any self-help e-book purchase is to tap into the reader’s insecurities and promise you have the long-sought-after answer.
In this case, it’s about tapping into woman’s insecurities and confusion over male behavior, with the promise of understanding of learning what’s going on behind the scenes of a man’s mind. “I don’t want a serious relationship right now.” WHAT HE REALLY MEANS IS… without trying to change me or turning our relationship into MORE WORK and LESS FUN than I can have on my own.” Does this make sense?
I’ll admit that my feelings were not altogether rational at the time, but they were a product of being brainwashed by his mind-sucking prose: 1) The feeling that men and women are so irreconcilably different that we can never truly be ourselves with each other; anything that promotes this idea is just depressing.
It makes me wonder if pre-industrial societies had it right when men and women didn’t expect their mates to be their best friends, and instead found companionship with same-sex friends 2) The way that women get blamed simply for being women and having some emotional needs to–guess what? According to Carter, men want to be with a “cool girl” and a “cool girl is basically someone who is unpredictable, fun, emotionally balanced, has no insecurities, easygoing, and independent.” Ummm, is this true? This marketing campaign is obviously aimed at a very mainstream, middle American audience.
That being said, I thought it would be great to put together a list of some of David De Angelo’s best articles from over the years.
His real name is David De Angelo, and once I had the wherewithal to do a search-binge on him, I found numerous consumer complaints from women who claimed that he wouldn’t stop charging them after they asked to unsubscribe.
I could see this was a psychological master who knew how to manipulate an audience.
“I ONLY WANT A RELATIONSHIP with a woman who already has her act together, is attractive, healthy, independent, easy-going, confident, and who is emotionally in control of herself and her own life.. Again, he’s NOT imagining a picture of an overly-emotional, predictable, needy woman who is trying to get him to connect with her and sharing her feelings because she’s so worried about things “working out.” In my google-searching, I found a post by this woman, who pretty much summarized his point of view.
She’s been reading him for longer than me, so I’ll let her do the heavy lifting of distilling his advice: One of my friends suggested I register at his website.
