This week we step into a deep realm of inner game and relationship skills by looking at the topic of "Personal Boundaries".

Personal boundaries is a topic that is discussed at length in some niche communities like the swingers and open relationship communities, and in some areas of the BDSM communities. It's an essential ingredient of reducing drama within the more complex types of relationships they have. However, setting personal boundaries is not just of niche use - it's an important topic for attracting women and developing healthy relationships in all situations.

It's a shame then, that in more general dating advice, such as in the seduction/ pickup artist community, the subject has been neglected. It's touched on at times, but from a pretty abstract and impractical level. There's no real meat given to the advice with practical and actionable information.

Mark Manson has bridged this gap with some of his writing of late, so I asked him to come on the podcast to discuss this topic. As we got to exploring the subject, it stretched out into a long interview. So this is the first part of a two part interview. You can find the second part here.
