Advancedatheist brought up how dating advice sounds like magic rituals.
It’s actually worse than that because in many cases dating advice actually is based on anti-scientific, illogical, magical woo. I found an article on the Dickless Mangina Project where a woman responds to a man who is understandably frustrated how he has to do all of the approaching. Here is an example of the anti-scientific, illogical, magical crap.
Thus remember that what you resist persists… if you stay resentful… that means your vibration and beliefs are one of resentment… so you’re going to attract an experience to make you right about it. AKA a woman who says, “You better make all the decisions or I’m outta here.”
Vibrations? If women aren’t approaching you, then you’re vibrations are wrong? No woman is going to come up with the thought process of, “I was going to approach this guy, but since he has had to approach in his experiences with women, I’m going to avoid him because his vibrations are wrong.” This is insulting to our intelligence.
The author of that page on the Dickless Mangina Project runs a blog called Meet Mindful. In the above quote, she links to one of the pages on her blog about “manifestation”. Here are some excerpts from that page showing more of the same anti-scientific, illogical, magical crap.
Your ability to manifest a life you want is based on energy flow
The Universe responds to actions first, then thoughts.
The physical world is the last stop on the manifestation train. It’s where ideas are realized, broken down or reborn. Because the physical world is slower moving than any of the other creative levels, in order to become manifested, an idea must be in alignment with other things in your physical life. For instance, if all you think about is wanting love in your life, what you feel is lonely and what you do is isolate yourself from others and judge them, the Universe receives this as, “I’d prefer to be by myself, thank you.”
Asking for help is my final bit of advice. I am a fan of working with the angels and there are many just waiting to give you assistance when it comes to manifestation—Galgaliel: the angel of vibration, Jamaerah: the angel of manifestation, Amitiel: the angel of truth, and Metatron: the angel of thought—are all spiritual teachers of this process and can assist freely if you ask.
This is so absurd that it makes the manuresphere look like the pinnacle of scientific fact and rationality.
The universe doesn’t respond to anything. It is not a conscious entity. If it was, it certainly wouldn’t be a cosmic wishing well with strange rules. And energy flow? That’s a load of crap. You’re better off drawing a pentagram and sacrificing a goat. It makes more sense.
As for asking those “angels” for advice, that can either be absurd or dangerous depending on your belief system. If they don’t exist, they can’t help you. If you’re a member if a religion that believes in angels, then the angels listed above either don’t exist (Metatron isn’t referenced in the Bible anywhere) or are demons (Amitiel works with Lucifer, aka the devil). It seems like MeetMindful is using dating advice as a scam to trick men into the occult. We know that dating advice is commonly used as a scam to trick men into believing in various political ideologies, but using dating advice to trick men into the occult is one I wasn’t expecting.
If you’re going to go into the occult to perform magical rituals to get laid, then you might as well just sell your soul to the devil. While you lose your immortal soul in the process, the devil will deliver on his end of the contract. The dating advice industry can’t do that. Of course, you should not sell your soul to the devil to get laid (or for any other reason). If the devil doesn’t exist, then you can’t sell your soul to him and the whole enterprise is a waste of time. If the devil does exist, your immortal soul is more valuable than any woman so you shouldn’t give it up just to get laid.
