Fan Mail Friday #134 | Less Ego, More Amigo

Time for Fan Mail Friday, where we’ll be answering your questions and dropping some knowledge and feedback to help you kick the weekend off right. This week, Kimberly Seltzer joins Jordan and Jason to set your questions right and help you course correct.

If you’re new to The Art of Charm Podcast, this isn’t a great place to start. Most of our content is more in-depth and longer format. Listen to recent guests Roger StoneAdmiral William H. McRavenRobin Dreeke, and Daniel McGinn for a better idea of our regular programming.

Also make sure to check out our Best Of picks or the Fundamentals Toolbox episodes. There, we’ve got the fundamentals of body language and nonverbal communication, attraction, negotiation, networking, and everything else we teach here at The Art of Charm.

Let’s cut to it! In this episode:

  • How do we cut off relationships with addicts when they’re so good at making us feel sorry for them?
  • Your good friend’s significant other is a disrespectful, bossy mismatch, and it’s obvious to everyone in your social group but him. Is there a way to hang out with him without her?
  • When both partners in a long-term relationship have partaken of infidelities, can trust ever truly be regained between them?
  • On paper, you seem to have your act together — you maintain fitness, you have a good job, and you’re friendly and outgoing. So why aren’t you getting second dates or approached in real life by potential suitors?
  • How do you help your best friend of 13 years maintain a healthy mental life and not get sore over his rebuffing of your suggestions — especially when he’s got another friend who encourages his bad behavior through binge drinking?
  • How do you get over a five-year dry spell when your longest relationships won’t last longer than a month?
  • Documentary of the Week: Hot Girls Wanted
  • Quick shoutouts to Mark and Janine and the UPS delivery dame!
  • Have any questions, comments, or stories you’d like to share with us? Drop us a line at [email protected]!
  • Check out Jordan’s (@TheArtofCharmother show: The Forbes List, and Jason’s (@jpdefother show: Grumpy Old Geeks.

Jordan Harbinger has spent several years abroad in Europe and the developing world, including South America, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East, and speaks several languages. He has also worked for various governments and NGOs overseas, traveled through war zones, and been kidnapped -- twice. He’ll tell you the only reason he’s still alive and kicking is because of his ability to talk his way into (and out of) just about any type of situation. Here at The Art of Charm, Jordan shares that experience, and the system borne as a result, with students and clients.
