Is Your Relationship or Marriage Working FOR You or AGAINST You?

There’s only one way to have a great relationship, and that’s to choose one that works for you instead of against you. Do you know how to do it? I’ll show you…

Often I hear people say things like, “I’m just going to stay single because being in a relationship takes too much work,” or, “I’ve never been in a good relationship, and I don’t think I could find one if it jumped up and bit me.” That’s really sad, and so untrue. I’ll tell you why, but first, Meet Leo:

Dear David,

What can I say, but I am completely different person than I was 3 months ago. A friend of mine told me about your book and how it made such a huge difference in her husband that she feels like she is living with a different person. I thought that was great for her but since I was a single man what could I possibly learn from it? Boy I was wrong!

I started reading your book and using the information I was gaining while dating other women and it was fantastic. Learning to be an Alpha Male is not just limited to guys who are married or who are trying to save their marriage, and not all it takes to find and enjoy a great relationship. Using what I learned from your book I started to date women who I could really have a relationship with instead of just being out there playing the hit and miss game.

Defining myself and what I wanted in a partner and a relationship made it easy to find women who I was attracted to and that I could talk with and share my life. Your “be slow to hire, quick to fire” advice and all the tips on reading and communicating with women enabled me to filter out the poor choices and spend more time looking for and enjoying good choices.

It took a few tries, but I have met some of the most wonderful women, and I really think there is one in particular that could go all the way. The feeling we have for each other or real and the attraction is so strong we have a hard time acting our age sometimes, and we can talk for hours and hours without getting bored. That all-important connection is there, and it’s so strong that we feel as if we’ve known each other since childhood, and it’s only been a few weeks.

Thanks for everything!
Leo

Congratulations, Leo, and thanks for writing. I’m glad you’re getting so much out of my book. There really is some work that needs to be done to have a great relationship, but as you’ve learned, it’s not the “walking on eggshells” routine that so many mismatched couples find themselves living with every day. It’s nearly all best performed on the front-end…

Before you can have a great relationship with a woman, you have to know yourself, and you have to know what kind of person you want and can get along with. If the person you want and the person you can get along with well are two different people, then you will have to go through a little self-improvement to be compatible with the person you want to live and enjoy life with.

For instance, if you want someone who will frequently travel to Italy with you on business and/or pleasure trips, it would be good if she spoke Italian, liked Italian food, and liked to travel, and it would also be good if you spoke the language as well so the two of you could remain fluent in between trips. It gives you common ground, something to do together, etc.

By the same token, if you want someone with an athletic build, you may have to take up a genuine interest in personal fitness and get fit yourself to present an image compatible with what such a person wants, because if they are interested in personal fitness, they may also prefer a partner that is committed to good health, will go to the gym or other activity with them, will have a compatible diet and can enjoy the same foods, etc.

You also have to be able to communicate fluently with women to be able to tell whether you really have that compatibility or if you’re sitting across the table from a lonely desperate person who has a bit of acting talent. I’m not at all implying that all lonely women will try to “hook” or “trap” a man any more than I would imply the same about men. When people get lonely, they will stretch themselves a bit to try to fit in with other people, and since being around others feels better than being alone, they may also think that this new thing they’ve picked up, whether an activity, attitude, or whatever, that is totally foreign to them is a good thing because it brought them company that they needed, and they try to keep up something that really isn’t them, and over time, they decide it isn’t working for them and the relationship falls apart.

You need to be able to communicate with women well enough that you can spot this early, and be able to communicate it to them in a way that will let you keep things honest and even break it off if necessary without leaving either of you feeling like you’ve been attacked. There’s a big difference between admitting that “your personalities don’t mesh” and trying to admit that “you’re not good enough.”

As I’ve said many times, the rules for creating attraction are somewhat different in the game of attracting new people than in keeping a good relationship alive and exciting, and there are other gurus, like John Alanis
and Shelley McMurtry, who can give you great advice on meeting new people. My focus is on an exciting and enjoyable long-term relationship, which starts with understanding what those kind of relationships are about and being prepared to find one and keep it alive. I’ll show you what to look for, and they’ll show you how to meet women and filter out the bad candidates quickly so you can focus on the better candidates and really check them out well with what I teach you.

If you’re not in a relationship it will help you be able to find a great one, and if you’re in one, it will help you either make it better or recognize that it can’t go anywhere because of irreconcilable differences and get out, hopefully without starting World War III and bankrupting yourself in the process. No matter where you are with regard to a satisfying long-term committed relationship, there’s high-quality, tested, proven, guaranteed help for you at
