I started Practical Happiness in 2005, because I was so eager to share what I have learned and what I was continuing to learn about all the tricky aspects of dating, from approaching and meeting women, developing confidence, dealing with jealousy, to relationship issues, break-ups and online dating. Having head to deal with just about every challenge a young guy can deal, including terrible acne, total inability to make a move and talk to girls due to experience paralyzing fear of approaching, and one terrible date after the other, I was desperately seeking answer to my questions. As I was getting better at meeting girls and dating, I really wanted to share with my fellow young men and later – with women – what dating advice I found to be effective and what I found to be a waste of time and money.
I am a big believer in constant learning, as I think it’s one of the things that makes life far more interesting. The world of dating has and continues to evolve with cultural and technological developments. For example, back in 2005, guys were still struggling on making that first call to a girl they met. Today, it’s no longer an issue since texting seems to have replaced calling almost entirely, which I am a little sad about, but… that’s the reality.
Practical Happiness has a unique goal and purpose of helping you through tough love. This of course does not include making you feel better about your dating issues or telling you that there is absolutely nothing wrong with how you go about meeting and dating people. I never saw much value in the “be yourself” kind of advice, as it can never lead to any kind of positive change. However, taking the tougher road – getting out of your comfort zone, taking a long hard look at your past and present behavior and actions when dealing with the opposite sex and doing something about it will much more likely help you overcome whatever challenging you are facing in your romantic interaction at any stage.
I don’t think that there is one aspect of dating that’s more important than others, and therefore I try to cover all angles and stages of meeting people, dating, online dating, relationship issues, and break-ups. Whether your are single, dating, in a short term or a long term relationship, are married, or are getting back into the dating scene after a difficult break-up or a divorce, you are likely to find a discussion on this site that’s relevant to your issue. If you don’t, please let us know and we will be happy to cover it in one of our next videos or articles.
