The Art Of Seducing A Woman – Get Her Weak On Her Knees

If you ever date a hot lady, you’re probably going to agree with me, the next most exciting experience besides sex is seducing her. Unfortunately, most guys are plain clueless on what to do to increase her attraction factor towards you by ten fold.

Here are 3 skills you can use to seduce any woman or even add more excitement to any relationship easily!

Skill #1 – Give Her A Little, And Then Lean Back

When you learn to master the “give a little, then lean back” tactic, you’ll create in the woman’s mind a sense of wanting more.

The fastest way to become boring is to keep giving the new woman in your life loads and loads of attention and conceding to everything she wants. Take some time out; spend a few days doing your own stuff. Let her think about you while you’re apart. Get her to miss you.

Skill #2 – Be Unpredictable

Being unpredictable attracts many women. What does being unpredictable really means. It means doing things that she least expected. It can be sending her a nice email or a card on a random date. It can also be taking her out on a romantic date where she less expect to.

The point here is to have fun and have her always guessing what you will do next that will surprise her. But nothing too scary like become a psycho and hurting her.

Skill #3 – Become a Challenge

When you become a challenge, you gain the attention of a woman’s thoughts and feelings. Women are never attracted to pushovers. They are attracted to men who are elusive, hard to grab, who instill in their minds a sense of mystery!

If you’re still clueless on how to approach, date and seduce a lady, you would like to consider reading the Alpha Male Newsletter by dating expert, Jake Riley. His popular newsletter is read by newbies and dating experts to improve their dating game.

What Is Art Therapy

Art therapy is simply the professional therapeutic ability to use artwork that has been done by individuals who desire personal development. This development has not been able to be achieved, due to trauma, personal crisis, illness, and certain challenges that have affected their life. People of all ages use art therapy, done by a professional art therapist who has been trained extensively about the human development, artistic traditions in a multitude of cultures, psychological theories, and the healing abilities regarding the use of art. Services are provided to these individuals through art therapy because they cannot articulate through words, emotions, and feelings about their true state of mind. The professional settings that participate with art therapy methods are mental health services, rehabilitation, medical institutions, education services, nursing homes, corporations, forensic agencies, community outreach, and independent practices. Strict standards for art therapy have been established by the American Art Therapy Association, Inc. (AATA) and The Art Therapy Credentials Board, Inc. (ATCB). Some individual states regulate their own practices of art therapy, while other states allow art therapists to become licensed counselors or mental health therapists. These art therapists utilize art-based assessment instruments to determine their client’s level of functioning. From this they are able to formulate a certain level of treatment objectives, decide what strengths and weaknesses their client has, gaining a better understanding of who their client is and the problems they have, and be able to evaluate their client’s progress. The Master level of training and education for an art therapist is mandatory, as ensuring the appropriate usage and application of drawing tests, evaluation of the instrument validity, and its reliability is extremely important to better serve the client. According to Donna J. Betts, Ph.D., ATR-BC, in her 2005 Doctoral Dissertation, some of the top art therapy tests that can be used are: Favorite Kind of Day (AFKOD) Person Picking an Apple from a Tree (PPAT) Birds Nest Drawing (BND) Bridge Drawing Diagnostic Drawing Series (DDS) Child Diagnostic Drawing Series (CDDS)Rating instruments are also investigated, which can include: Descriptive Assessment of Psychiatric Art (DAPA) DDS Rating Guide and Drawing Analysis Form (DAF) Formal Elements Art Therapy Scale (FEATS). These are just a few of the art therapy assessment tools that can be used by art therapists, in clinical settings or in research. Each art therapy tool is a structured assessment that are collected under standardized conditions. Most are developed to provide a compatibility with psychological testing and psychiatric evaluations: Art Therapy-Projective Imagery Assessment (ATPIA) Draw-A-Story Screening for Depression (DAS) Used to identify children and adolescents at risk for harming others or themselves.

Affordable Artwork Investing

Many people think of art simply as something to hang on their walls or add to the decor of a room. However the value of an original oil painting does increase over time which makes art colleting both an enjoyable hobby and an investment much like stocks or real estate. In fact many financial experts consider art collecting to be much less volatile than many other types of investing. Unlike stocks, which can become entirely worthless if the company goes out of business, as long as you keep the artwork in good shape it is highly unlikely to ever be worth nothing. Unlike real estate artwork is less dependant on economic forces. For the most part if you own artwork from a recognized artist and keep your original oil painting, or limited edition art print, in good condition you can only expect the value of the work to go up. Art only ever becomes worthless if the artwork itself is destroyed beyond repair.

Why then dont more people invest in original oil paintings? Many people have the idea that original oil paintings are too expensive for the average person to own. If you have gone into a local art gallery or attended a large scale art auction you may have been surprised at the high prices. Like in most things dealing with a middle man can add a lot onto the price of any item. In an art gallery the gallery itself takes a large, sometimes even majority, percentage of all sales and for art auctions the venue does the same, as well as having to pay for the auctioneer and insure all the artwork.

The best way to get investible quality art for an affordable artwork price is to cut out these middle men. Buying original oil paintings direct from the artist insures that you get a great deal on your art and that your money is going directly into the hands of the creator of the artwork. Leonid Afremov has both an online art gallery and does online art auctions from his own website. Many of these are $1 art auctions- and unlike large scale auction houses there is no reserve. If the high bid stays at $1 the bidder wins the artwork, there are no hidden fees to drive up the price or loopholes so the sale can be cancelled.

Another option to make sure that affordable artwork gets into the hands of the people who really appreciate it and not just the people with the most money in their bank accounts are Afremovs limited edition art prints. These archival quality art prints of some of this artists most popular original oil paintings are of a limited run, are hand embellished by the artist himself, are signed and numbered by the artist, and come with a certificate of authenticity. These limited edition art prints are another great investment to consider.
