029 Joseph Teskey: Attachment Theory

Are you more ANXIOUS or AVOIDANT? How do you see Attachment Theory show up in how you relate?

Attachment Theory is probably the most useful model for understanding out relationship tendencies. This convo is with Joseph Teskey, a psychotherapist from Brooklyn.

We ended up speaking a lot on the application for men in dating... A lot of dating advice is geared towards teaching Anxious men to become Avoidant. (You'll understand what those terms mean in the first few minutes.)

We cover what's right and wrong about that, how men can become more secure, and how this all ties into the Hero's Journey. Joseph also psychoanalyzes my bad behavior. :)

025 Anders Wallace: Masculine Subcultures

Anders Wallace is a sociologist studying the subculture of men looking to develop themselves by relating to women. He did a multi-year study of the "PUA" communities and others. I was one of his case studies during his research.

In this episode, Anders and I discuss his findings in masculinity, male self-esteem, and the vices and virtues within the pursuit of becoming "attractive."
