Men can find dating support from all over the internet. Whether it’s tips on how to meet women, to advice on how to look great for a date. It’s no secret that there’s something out there to suit everyone.
But- and it’s a big but- most men can agree there’s nothing quite like the support of a solid social network, where men from all walks of life can come together to offer tips, support, and laughter as they navigate the messy- but always fun- world of dating.
The thing is that building a social network for dating support is a lot easier than it sounds. Armed with some golden advice, it not only becomes easy, but you can turn to this network for whatever you wish, whenever you wish. As long as it’s related to dating.
Why build a social network for dating support?
There’s no point in denying it: men hate reaching out for support. It doesn’t matter if you want help with changing the lightbulb, to discussing some stressful emotions, there’s nothing wrong with admitting that sometimes, you might need support. When it comes to dating, the same mantra applies.
If you’re stuck with figuring out the best chat up line to use, who’s to say you can’t ask a friend for their ideas? If you know exactly how to get that second date in the bag, why shouldn’t you give that advice to someone else who needs it?
Above all, building this network shows you are committed to having your most successful dating life yet. Not only will this inspire other men, but it does wonders with women, too.
There is nothing to be lost, and everything to be gained when it comes to building your social network for dating support- so why not give it a go?
Just how you can do this
Ask around your current friends
It’s easy to feel like you’re the only one struggling with dating, even though that definitely won’t be the case. As a single man, you’ll have a whole host of different friends around you. Sure, some will be in a couple, and sure, some won’t be men, but it’s worth asking your single friends if any of them would like to build this social network with you.
Confidence tips might come in handy for this if you’re unsure of how to ask. They are the perfect tool to turn to when you want to do well on the dating scene, but they’re also pretty handy life tools that are ideal for times like this. Once you’ve gathered a few people together, you can begin an open and honest discussion about how you all might be struggling, and more importantly, how you can change that. Or, it could be sharing how some of you might be acing the dating game, and how you can all keep doing that.
Make use of, well, social networking sites
The next big step is growing your social network. The more people you have on board, the more advice can be shared around. While heading to local social groups might help with this, your best bet is to reach out to people online using platforms like Facebook.
On here, you can create a group of both local and worldwide men, and encourage them to post any problems or advice. Go the extra mile and create a private group chat alongside your open page. Then, take to forums like Reddit to get the word out.
You’ll notice pretty quickly how much more people are willing to share from behind a computer screen. From here, you could also try organizing regular meetups for local members, so the men in your network can cultivate meaningful friendships with each other outside the online world.
Hold regular, face-to-face meetups
Dating can be serious, which nobody wants. Through all the heavy advice or problems shared, you’ll need some moments where you can relax and let off some steam. The oldest but best way of doing this is by holding regular meetups- but not just for dating talk.
Alongside the serious chat, hold these meetups in sports bars, where some of your favorite sports matches are likely to be playing. You could even turn it into a classy ‘do, by heading to your nearby upmarket bar and impressing your new friends a few cigars from your cigar box. With the lighter atmosphere, genuine advice is way more likely to be shared.
And here’s the big one: never lose sight of what’s important
You’re right- this does sound fun so far. And it’s important to remember that dating support can be fun, but you should also never lose sight of why you set up this social network in the first place. You- and everyone else- is there to better their dating lives.
To avoid each meetup descending into chaos, set an objective, or aim when you are organizing each one. For example, you might like to focus on how to get a girl’s number in one session. This means the men in your network can also pick and choose which meetups they come to, so there’s no pressure on anyone. It also means you’ll never lose your commitment to leading a successful dating life. Who knows, you might see things turn around quicker than you thought.
