No-BS Relationship Advice for Women
Actress Mae West was once quoted, “A dame that knows the ropes isn’t likely to get tied up.”
In other words, if a woman knows her way around a given situation, then she is more likely to stay out of trouble.
This community is for the modern dame who wants to learn the ropes when it comes to dating, relationships, and understanding men.
The content here will aim to reveal truth and reality in social and gender dynamics – to help you set appropriate standards, define boundaries, own your worth without apology, and achieve quality relationships with good men.
The Dame Behind The Blog
My name is Ash Pariseau. I’m an American writer and certified relationship consultant, trained through an ICF accredited academy.
I’ve written for many different digital and print publications, including Thought Catalog, HuffPost, Evie Magazine, and others.
I have worked as Relationships Editor for Hope Magazine and as a blogger/virtual assistant for UK’s premier matchmaking website, Cupid In The City.
The more I would write and become part of the conversation on dating, relationships, and sexuality, the more I began to understand what women are up against regarding their love lives.
The question of “where have all the good men gone?” is one that seems to come up a lot these days. Women today are fed up with not being able to find decent men. They are tired of falling for the fuckboys, the Chads, the losers, the users, and the assholes. They have had enough with being in a position where they are walked on, manipulated, taken advantage of, and disrespected by the guys they are seeing.
I was once the nice girl with low standards and almost no personal boundaries. I was locked in a scarcity mentality and became devastated whenever a boy would break up with me.
I had no idea what I was doing. Like many, I was lost and clueless about how to attract the type of guy who would work with me on building a healthy, long lasting relationship.
Finally, I got to a point where I was sick of all the shit and wasn’t going to let it rule my mind or my life. I decided that I didn’t want to just sit around complaining and feeling like a victim. So, I put my ass to work on changing it all.
Personal growth, mindset shifts, understanding feminine and masculine psychology, along with sage advice I received is what has allowed me to crawl out of the trenches that so many women find themselves trapped in when it comes to sex and dating.
Modern women are in dire need of an effective plan of action towards true empowerment in relationships with men, and I’m happy to be able to help with just that.
I like to play with fire. Aside from writing and coaching, I’m a fire and LED performer. I’m proficient with hoop, fans, poi, staff, and levitation wand. I have a separate IG account for this.
I’m a classic (INTJ) introvert. However, I occasionally like to push myself out of my comfort zone to be more socially present for things that are really important to me.
When it comes to tv and film, I’m a sucker for psych thrillers or dystopian fiction. Gone Girl, You (series), Hunger Games, Black Mirror, are some of my favorites. If it’s dark, twisted, and psychological, I’ll probably watch it.
