Dr. Robert Glover is an author, psychotherapist and speaker. He is the author of the bestselling men's self-help book: No More Mr. Nice Guy. Dr Glover has devoted his career as a psychotherapist to freeing men from what he was dubbed the "Nice Guy Syndrome": trying too hard to please others while neglecting their own needs, thus causing unhappiness and resentfulness.

In this episode we discuss:
- The problems with the "Nice Guy" archetype
- The meaning of real kindness
- The path to integrating aggression into your life
- How to date in 2022
- The problem with dating apps
- The value of facing one's fears
