Could use some guidance on this… I have a black girlfriend. We’ve been dating 6 weeks and everything has been great. Deep connection. Aligned values. Undeniable physical attraction. It’s the most heart centered relationship of my life. We were driving on Saturday and she saw a Trump 2020 sign & cracked a joke. She then […]
Hey Pat, I was wondering if you’d be able to help with a small annoyance with my girlfriend before it turns into a problem. Here it goes, I understand if there’s only so much you’re willing to do. The short story is that every time my girlfriend and I aren’t in physical proximity with one another
I tweeted out today some observations about what’s happening in the online realm. Which, considering this stuff is my “business” — might be considered a bit risky. “Wait Pat, you’re saying that your clients aren’t getting great results online? What does that say about you?” It says I’m honest. It’s not just my clients, it’s
There’s a reason I’m a dating AND relationship coach. These two subject areas, while obviously overlapping, are in fact quite different. Something that becomes VERY apparent as a married guy (who had a LOT of experience dating)… when I see the regular commentary of manosphere bros asserting things that work in a casual context will
A reader writes in: Hi Pat, I just had a major realization, that I’ve been living (to some extent) within the “frame” of a close male friend.

These are guys who were, on paper, the perfect boyfriends — they were considerate, generous, patient.
One of the topics I’ve “pioneered” in the manosphere is the concept of “Girl Game” — the things women do to seduce men, and how men need to protect themselves accordingly. And because so few gurus talk about it — most guys are concerned with gaming women, not preventing themselves from being gamed (a big mistake) —
Hey Pat,I appreciate your work, it has seriously helped me better my life. But I’d like your help with a situation I’m in right now. Last Friday, after dating for 4 months, I told my girlfriend I love her. She responded saying she loves me too. But on our most recent date, she told me
A reader the other day asked a very important question: Do you have thoughts on what I can do to improve relationship with my parents? I have always had a strained relationship with them and recently moved out to begin to stay with my friend (I’m never pulling my weight nor living up to potential).
Watched a movie — Midsommar — the other night that was very interesting. (Spoiler alerts for the first ~30 minutes of the film ahead) For our purposes, however, I’m going to focus on the central relationship dynamic in the film: Christian and Dani. Christian and Dani’s relationship is, in a word, dysfunctional. And unfortunately represents
