Wes & Regina ask the age-old question: Do women prefer assholes?
Wes talks about how guys with access to women can act just as desperate as those without.
Single and dating? Confused about what to say to that woman in the coffee shop? Going back and forth about which text to send? Freezing up on your date, unsure of whether she wants you to kiss her or not?
If only you had a guardian angel sitting on your shoulder who could give you dating advice whenever you needed it…
The bad news is there’s no such thing as angels. The good news is, with Dating Guardian Angel, you can have your very own personal coach on-call to help you navigate your way to dating success.

How long have you been on Tinder, Bumble, OkCupid, Match, eHarmony, POF, Coffee Meets Bagel, Happn, Christian Singles, MeetMindful or Grindr? If you have used any of these for any length of time, your answer would probably be, “Way too long!” Being on these apps produces the illusion that there is an endless stream of new faces and bodies and the person on your screen is as quickly replaceable as the changing the song on your car radio. “Just swipe left if you don’t like them,” boast these apps.
Many introverts have an issue with these dating apps because introverts tend to value deep and meaningful human connections and dislike shallow and surface level interactions. However, these apps can be helpful, and as somebody who’s used them at various points, I can’t say they are all bad. But, they are a double-edged sword, to put it kindly.
With the sometimes limited focus on the person behind the face/body, it seems that dating apps promote an environment of expendability. And for introverts who crave deep meaning and connections when they do choose to expend their usually more limited social energy reserves, I can see why so many introverts in particular find dating apps to be disheartening at best and resentment/contempt-prompting at their worst.
