Mystery is essential because it's the missing information that draws a potential partner in. Excitement is the special ingredient that makes being together memorable. And consideration is the element around it all that conveys you really care.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 12, 2006
A spiritually-oriented romance and dating expert alerts men to a common Valentine’s Day trap: don’t let the true spirit of Valentine's Day be lost among the parade of flowers, fine chocolates, champagne corks popping, and risqué interludes.
"For many people, especially men, Valentine's Day causes extra anxiety," says Dr. Alex Benzer, M.D., author of the recently released "The Tao of Dating: The Thinking Man's Enlightened Guide to Success With Women."
Benzer shared some all too familiar dating dilemmas that affect men on Valentine’s Day year after year:
- You’re single -- the scramble to land a date is on!
- Dating someone? Do you ask her out on Valentine's Day and buy a present?' And if you do neither will you risk lose her?
- In a committed relationship? The pressure is on the male to meet and exceed romantic expectations.
There is one common thread to all these scenarios: everybody wants romance yet do any of us know what romance truly is?"
Dr. Alex Benzer believes he does. Interviews with hundreds of women revealed 10 reoccurring traits of romance. As Dr. Alex shared, “By comparing this list to the basic neurological circuits mediating lust, love and attachment, I discovered the three absolutely essential keys of romance: Mystery, Excitement and Consideration.”
As Dr. Alex continued, "Mystery is essential because it's the missing information that draws a potential partner in. Excitement is the special ingredient that makes being together memorable. And consideration is the element around it all that conveys you really care.”
"If you just have mystery, you're likely come off as weird, not romantic; just excitement, and you're potentially dangerous; just consideration, and you're yet another wimp. But when you combine all three -- now that’s potent -- you've got romance."
Dr. Alex follows a heart-centered approach that unites timeless principles of Eastern wisdom with Western science to bring lasting fulfillment to his readers and students. As Dr. Alex shared, "From Eastern philosophy and spirituality, you get the right mindset and intention. From Western psychology, neuroscience and evolutionary biology, you get the right techniques and behaviors. By combining East and West, you now have a dating system that's both enlightened and effective."
Dr Alex holds an A.B. from Harvard, a Masters of Philosophy from Cambridge University and an MD from the University of California, San Diego. Benzer currently oversees the Elite Personal Development hypnotherapy clinic in Los Angeles. "The Tao of Dating: The Thinking Man's Enlightened Guide to Success With Women" is his latest book. The women’s version is due in late Spring 2006.
