At a time when traditional dating practices are being replaced with new ways to meet potential partners, this book provides fresh insights into how are men responding to new ways of dating. Drawing upon original research, this book examines a wide range of contemporary dating practices that includes speed dating, holiday romances, use of dating apps, online sex seeking and dogging. It reveals the ways in which men draw upon traditional models of masculinity to negotiate these changes; but also, the extent to which men are responding by elaborating new masculinities. Through an investigation of the dynamics of heterosexuality and masculinity, this book highlights the importance attached to authenticity, and the increasing marketization and commodification of dating. It argues that in a post-truth world, men must also come to terms with a post-trust dating landscape. Combining rich empirical material with keen theoretical analysis, this innovative work will have interdisciplinary appeal for students and scholars of sociology, media studies, cultural studies, and gender studies.

Have you had a hard time in the dating world, due to being shy or simply uncertain of what to say or do? Have you resigned yourself to either loneliness or having one night stands to try to feel fulfilled? Have you ever longed for a beautiful, interesting girlfriend that is interested in you? Many guys have a hard time dating because they are missing the most important quality for attracting and keeping the interest of women; simple masculinity. If you´re a guy, you already have this trait naturally, but you might be standing in your own way and thinking too hard about it. This book will teach you to stop doing that and let your true self shine through. It seems like all the talkative and confident guys get the girls, so how do you start being one of them? Find out in chapters two and three of this guide. Getting a woman´s phone number is only one part of the equation (and we´ll teach you how to do that), but what about afterwards? How do you get her to say yes to a first date? And then a second date? This book will walk you through the process. The point of dating is to try to establish a connection. Whether your goal is simply to meet a casual girlfriend without getting too serious, or to meet your life partner, chapter seven has everything you need to know. 1. Language: English.

If you want your dating life to flourish, and you are ready to make your dreams with sex and relationships a reality, then this book is the blueprint you´ve been looking for. If you feel in the dark and confused about what women want, here you will find all the clarity you need to become instantly more attractive. Ask a native speaker of a language why something is said a certain way, and they will often shrug, telling you that they don´t know and that it´s just the way it is. The same can be said for sexual attraction and seduction - ask a man who is a natural with women what women are attracted to, and he will tell you to ´just be yourself´. Ask a woman and you will get a myriad of seemingly contradictory suggestions. Both ´speak the language´ but lack the grammar and knowledge of the rules to explain the why behind it all. Red Knight is your complete step-by-step ´grammar book´ for masculinity, sexual attraction, and seduction. Aslen Claymore takes you on a transformative journey through the world of pick-up-artistry, the mythology and spirituality of masculinity, and attractive personality typing, before arriving at the ultimate psychological model of sexual attraction between men and women. You´re going to learn: The fundamental psychology of sexual attraction, and how it has nothing to do with looks, money, and status. Why you are unattractive to women, and what you can do to turn it around Which of the six masculine archetypes you have the strongest access to Your unique Attractive Personality Type and how it makes you attractive to women A clear step-by-step path to mastering your masculinity How making one simple change to the pronouns you use makes you instantly more attractive How to start a conversation and keep it going, even when you have absolutely nothing to say And so much more! 1.

Sexy Alpha Lion Shifter Romance I´m always asking myself, what´s the catch? I can´t allow myself to believe the best about anything. I was cheated on in a relationship twice before, and now whenever I make an effort to meet someone new, I find myself full of doubt and skepticism. I´ve been out of the dating pool a while at this point when I finally cave in and try online dating. To my surprise, a quite handsome specimen of masculinity gets in touch with me, a man named Leo, and makes his interest in me known. The two of us meet, and the date seems to go swimmingly well all the way up through the walk home. The two of us kiss under the stars, and suddenly Leo stops, confessing to me that he has a secret that he needs to tell me before things can go any further. He takes me back to his place where, before my eyes, he transforms into a massive, powerful, fully-grown lion, fierce and terrifying. And I´m left wondering just what the hell I´ve gotten myself into.... Notice: Not suitable for anyone under 18 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sadie Stevens.

In his groundbreaking new book, noted expert on teenage and adult masculine behavior Andrew Smiler debunks the myth that teenage boys and young men are barely able to control their sex drives, which may lead to destructive hyper-sexuality, unwanted pregnancy, and sexually transmitted diseases. Dr. Smiler helps us to recognize that the majority of boys and men do not fit this stereotype and that boys´ sexual development is multi-faceted. He also shows how this shift in attitude could help create young men who are more mature and have better relationships with partners and friends. He explains how the Casanova Complex has developed over time and how it can hurt young males, and he provides the latest research on male sexuality, including information from the author´s own studies. This book offers guidance for parents and counselors of boys who want to help them to develop lasting and meaningful relationships, as well as for the parents of girls who are dating. The book dismantles the stereotype of boys as driven only by an obsession with having intercourse with multiple partners, and calls for deeper growth and understanding of modern masculinity. 1.

This edited collection brings together international leading scholars to explore why the education of Muslim students is globally associated with radicalisation, extremism and securitisation. The chapters address a wide range of topics, including neoliberal education policy and globalization; faith-based communities and Islamophobia; social mobility and inequality; securitisation and counter terrorism; and shifting youth representations. Educational sectors from a wide range of national settings are discussed, including the US, China, Turkey, Canada, Germany and the UK; this international focus enables comparative insights into emerging identities and subjectivities among young Muslim men and women across different educational institutions, and introduces the reader to the global diversity of a new generation of Muslim students who are creatively engaging with a rapidly changing twenty-first century education system. The book will appeal to those with an interest in race/ethnicity, Islamophobia, faith and multiculturalism, identity, and broader questions of education and social and global change.
