Dating Interview: Be Open and Approach Women Regularly with Frank Love
Frank Love (or also known as Yao Tyus) runs the relationship advice blog and site, FrankLove.com. In addition to giving out relationship and dating advice on his site he also has a book, How to Gracefully Exit a Relationship, coming out soon. Today he shares some of his relationship lessons.
So there are a lot of dating and love websites out there. What was your motivation for starting Franklove.com?
Over the years I have had so many conversations with people about relationships. Usually my perspective was quite different for those that most people considered to be the norm. Yet at the same time those that I were talking with usually said that my perspective was articulate and well-thought out. I decided to write a book, and the rest is a platform to launch the book and an entertainment career.
What is the most common question you get from guys when it comes to finding or getting dates? What do you recommend them to do?
I am often asked how to keep a woman or a partner. My answer is basically, by providing value to that person. There is no better way. That way they stay voluntarily (because they are getting something out of the relationship). That is not really an answer to your “dating” question. So, my advice on getting dates is to be open about who you are and approach women regularly. One will undoubtedly like whatever weirdnesses that you carry, and subsequently you. There are few greater feelings than being accepted. But you cannot be accepted, easily, if you are not presenting yourself.
You had a post on how you took your special someone to see a romantic comedy even when you have zero interest in them. The point of this to show how you care about her. What other things do you suggest people in relationships should do for each other?
Touch each other/massage, it is a valuable form of communication that is underused.
You have a book coming out called “Frank Love: Uncommon Solutions to Common Relationship Problems.” Can you give us an example of some of your uncommon solutions?
The book changed to “How to Gracefully Exit a Relationship.” One way to do so is to discuss how you have broken up with previous partners. It tells your current partner what your pattern(s) have been.
