Kathie Lee & Hoda: Relationship Expert Matthew Hussey
Human dynamics coach and relationship expert Matthew Hussey now has a book that lets the ladies in on all of the ways that they can get the guys they’ve been looking for with his new book, Get The Guy. Rather than just sit and talk about the book, though, Matt gave personal advice to women that wrote into the show.
Today Show: My Date Wants To Bring His Friends
The first question came from a woman whose date called her up and asked her if his friends can join because he had plans with them, as well. Naturally, she wondered if this guy was just not into her. Matthew Hussey said that this could go one of two ways. One, the guy will turn out to be real great and just slipped up, or two, the guy is an idiot. Matt suggested to give him the benefit of the doubt and this time and bring her friends along as well.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: Is Chivalry Dead?
Another woman just recently finished up with a divorce and has been out of the dating game for years. Being rusty at the whole courting process, she wondered if she should expect the man to pay and open her car door for her.
Matt said that he just did a blog about whether or not chivalry is dead, writing that men are mainly confused about this because they live in a world where women are more powerful than ever. This causes men to shoot themselves in the foot, thinking that they should give women equal treatment in all respects and not hold doors, failing to realize that it is chivalry that sets them apart from all the other guys out there.
Today Show: Dating & Communication
Matthew said that this lack of chivalry isn’t necessarily the fault of the guy. They may have just not been taught correctly. What this means is that, if you are a woman that expects doors to be held open for you, make it clear that is your standard. If the guy really likes you and wants to impress you, he will start doing it for you. Matt said that women have to communicate better with men if they want this to happen, though. By simply asking for it, they will find out if it is something they can expect to get, or if the guy really is set in his ways.
