    How Much More Dating Advice Do Women Need?

    “Dating advice for women” on an Amazon search yields upwards of 1,000 books. A Google search shows an even more daunting 350,000 results of books, blogs and news. Add this in with all the hours spent talking about dating with therapists, life coaches, friends and family, and the newspapers, magazines and TV shows discussing dating and all of its do’s and don’ts and what have you got? A whole lot of dating advice from an extensive list of sources.

    At some point you must wonder – by consequence, shouldn’t all our dating knowledge be encyclopedic by now? Is there still anything new to be learned about it? Do women really need more dating advice than what is already out there?

    The thing to remember is that dating and male-female relations are dynamic forces that change through time. It is not static. It is clear that the landscape of dating has changed, from its earliest forms since the beginning of human history to the present. Gender equality, the information age, online dating and social media have changed the rules of the game. Women need advice to navigate this new dating world.

    A clever way of filling the knowledge gap is to find dating advice from new perspectives and unexpected sources. An increasing number of male experts and authors have lent their voices to help enlighten the dating and relationship woes of women, for example. Carlos Cavallo, of datingadviceguru.com, is an example of these men. His upcoming book, “Make Him Love You, Learn His Tricks,” aims to shed some light on modern-day dating issues from not just a fresh male perspective but in a non-sugarcoated, no-frills way.

    As long as the landscape keeps changing, women will continue to need dating advice – and in this day and age, they might find some enlightenment and new perspectives in the works of men like Cavallo.
