Most Helpful Guy

  • Assuming I would go to someone for advice, as I'm usually of the opinion that I can handle it myself, I'd probably go for a single female friend of roughly same age as me. I figure that anyone who is in a long term relationship can probably give me good tips for a relationship, but I also think that a single woman of roughly my age could give me a better idea of what women like her, which would be my "target" group, like, dislike, look for etc. Granted I understand that every woman is an individual, but in general I'd assume that most would have at least some similarities.

  • It depends on the person. Generally an older person in a HEALTHY relationship would be the best choice I think, however sometimes single people and younger people can be helpful. It depends on their track record. If they can't keep things together for themselves and they haven't learn from their past then why would you want their advice? People I know like that just tend to complain rather than say anything meaningful. And if you go to them for advice it turns into "WELL let me tell you about MY problems..."

  • I have one dude I now that is the ultimate player. He takes home a new woman like every week, once told me he hooked up with three women in one day. He probably doesn't know the first thing about dating, but he sure as hell knows how to pick them up.

    I wouldn't ask him for advice though. Why? Because I'm a shy introvert and not trying to play women. Would be nice to know how to flirt better though.

    I would be nice to have a mentor who knows about dating or a coach, but I don't have that kind of cash right now (using it to improve my life and go to college instead). Most of the people I get advice from are women, but I think an experienced guy would be a better coach.

  • I have a couple of gurus I go to. One is a slightly older single female friend (about 4 years older) that has been in a couple of long term relationships. Another is a woman roughly the same age as me, but who has been "quite loose" (her words, not mine) in the five or so years between her marriage ending & her current one starting. Each of them provide a different perspective on what I should and/or shouldn't do.
    And unfortunately, my only male friends are my younger brothers (both married), but I don't feel overly comfortable going to them for advice...

  • Anybody really, one can get helpful tidbits of information from everybody, if said person is actually trying to be helpful. Its up to me to decide what applies and what doesn't beyond that.

  • Older person of the same gender. They usually have more experience in relationships/dating, they just about seen it all and done it all. Some of the best advice given to me has been from those particular people. I don’t take much advice from women, sure they could give some insight as to how another woman may think but unless they date women themselves what possible help could they be off?

  • "Single person of my age and the opposite sex". I think that everyone is an individual and that people are naturally biased. I think it's natural for people in happy, healthy relationships to compare each person to their S. O when they think of traits that they'd want in a partner. I want to date single guys, not happily settled men. I also want to date guys in my age range so why would I consult older men? There are a few older men who can understand the younger generation so there are some exceptions of course.

    It makes more sense to get answers straight from your demographic of interest, if you ask me.

    I may also ask some older females about their experiences but that's more to get a perspective from the female pov.

  • Depends on the type of tip I want. If tips on getting dates - a friend who dates a lot, they'll know how to get dates. If relationship advice - someone in a good relationship.
