Reel Advice: Learn From These Hollywood Flicks


The best way to learn the tips and tricks of dating is by seeing them come to life before your eyes. Here are two films with excellent dating advice for the average guy.


“Any guy can sweep any girl off her feet, he just needs the right broom.”

The premise of this Will Smith movie is that any guy, if given the right opportunity, can sweep the woman of his dreams off her feet. Will Smith plays a character named “Hitch”, whose job is to help his clients (the men) get the women of their dreams. Don’t be mistaken – it’s not about scoring with as many women as you can, it’s about falling in love with a woman who seems to overlook you and learning how to successfully get her attention.

One of the first things that Hitch says early in the movie is that you cannot use what you do not have. If you’re shy, you don’t have to pretend otherwise. If you’re not into books, then don’t pretend that you’ve read Dostoevsky. See, whenever you pretend to be something else, you end up making a fool out of yourself. While you can learn to overcome your shyness and your other faults, don’t expect to make this change all at once. It’s best to focus on improving what you have, rather than trying to pull off being someone that you’re not.

This movie has a treasure trove of dating advice, plus, it’s actually one of the few romantic comedies that even guys can enjoy. From dancing to kissing and proper dating etiquette, this movie is a must-see for those who are seriously looking to improve their dating skills.

“The Tao of Steve”

“If you’re out with this girl and even THINKING about getting laid, you’re finished, coz women can smell an agenda like s*** on a shoe.”

According to this movie, “Steve” is the prototypical cool American male. Based on the persona of Steve Mc Queen, this guy never tries to impress the girl, but gets her in the end anyway. The Tao of Steve has 3 rules:

1. Be desireless. When you’re with the girl you like, don’t think about getting into bed with her. Listen to what she’s saying. Or else you’ll get your priorities mixed-up and she’ll know what’s really going on inside your head.

2. Be excellent. Do something excellent and impressive in her presence. If you’re good with pets, walk your neighbors’ dogs one Saturday. Find something that you’re really talented at, and give her a chance to see it.

3. Be gone. It’s important that you don’t start coming on too strong. Sometimes you should choose your friends or your personal space over her. According to The Tao of Steve, “we pursue that which retreats from us.” Let her know that she only has once chance with you, and then you’re gone. This is bound to raise your value in her eyes.
