A Dearth of Dates

"Get your own attitude in check here and stop putting your level of trust into someone else's hands. Further, take back the control of your respect. You deserve that from someone that claims to love you."

Dear Doc,
I am 30 years old and have never been on a date. I had very bad anxiety because of my obsessive compulsive disorder. It's not as bad now, but I don't have much experience talking to people.

I talk to people at work and they want to help me, but I fear I am not experienced enough. I don't drink, dance, smoke or do drugs. I don't go to clubs or bars or anything.

All the places I go seem pretty boring to others when I think about it and it's hard for me to want to go anywhere else. I have no idea what to do.

Please advise.

First of all, open the lid to the box you've created for yourself and get some air!

More than half of your question was telling me about all the things you don't do. What about the things you DO do? What you're doing is creating all sorts of mental barriers to having what you want rather than seeing all the opportunities that you do have.

This is where we need to begin - by changing you from a "move away" type of person to a "moving toward" type of person. In other words, by focusing in what you don't do; don't have; don't want, etc., you're pushing your own life away from you. Frankly, that's entirely the wrong focus here. What you want to do is to focus on specifically what you do what, what you do like, etc.

You see, great women are all over the place. Every time you go out to grab a bite to eat, go to the bookstore, go fill your car with gas, go to the doctor or even go to work - you see great women there. These are your "opportunities". The only challenge you face is that you don't have enough experience or security in order to meet these women.

This has been a pattern for 30 years of your life. How has that worked out for you? Is it getting you where you want to go? Are you happy with the results? Obviously, you are not. You know there is more out there for you and you want to have that. I want you to have that too. So, what separates you from having what you want? Answer: two things: attitude and education. That's it! Seems overly simple doesn't it? Well, it's not.

We start by changing your attitude from "can't", "won't", "don't" to "can", "will" and "do". This is the beginning of everything, and is based on pure belief-science. In fact, it works for you just as it does everyone else. It's time to start seeing the possibilities here.

You should also understand that you're not alone here. I get letters every week from guys (and girls too!) just like you that are in their 20's, 30's, 40's, 50's and even 60's that have never been on a date or even kissed someone else! These people can change their lives and so can you. You simply have to believe it's true so that you start seeing opportunity all around you rather than limitations. The only limitations you face are within those 6 inches between your ears.

Now, on to the next part, the education.

Let's say that you knew exactly what to say to some woman you thought was cute. Then, when she responded (well by the way - people are generally interested in meeting and talking with other people they find interesting) you could respond equally well and with confidence. Do you think you'd have trouble talking to women - or anyone for that matter? Of course not. It'd almost be easy, even fun!

That's the way this evolution happens. You begin your education by learning some simple facts about us humans. One of the most important is this: everyone is most interested in just one thing: themselves. Armed with that knowledge, all you need is to talk about your targets (the woman you want to approach) favorite subject: herself!

I'm getting a little ahead of myself however because before you start talking to her about her, you first need to find and approach her, right? As I've already said, this is actually pretty easy too. Great women are everywhere! You just have to be outside your own home to meet them. Next comes the approach. How do you actually strike up a conversation with someone? I teach a thing called "context". It's very simple. All you have to do is to ask yourself, "what do her and I have in common at this very instant in time at this very place?" It could be the fact that she likes sub sandwiches (sandwich shop), or reads fiction (bookstore) or owns a car and needs to have new tires put on it (tire shop), etc. It could even be the weather or the fact that you both live in the same city. In fact, the context doesn't really even matter! It can be absolutely anything!

Once you start the approach, you learn to ask open-ended questions in order to get her talking and by doing so, you begin to establish rapport and connection (using communication skills that you'll learn) which leads to attraction. Finally, you close for numbers or even impromptu dates. It all seems very simple, because it is!

The trick however is to learn all of these skills just like you learn to do your job. Which is more important to you? Obviously you have to work to survive, but you have to love to really live! I suggest you get started right away on building this new knowledge base. Go get copies of my books, "Being a Man in a Woman's World I & II" and get started with your education. You've already spent 30 years not knowing all of these things. Why not spend the next year building that knowledge so that you can spend the next 30 years exploiting it?

Best regards...

About The Book:

Men and women continue to complain about their relationships. Married or single, the same issues seem to keep coming up.

Many men have trouble meeting women. They might meet them; they just can't get their numbers. When they do get a number, they can't get them to go out. When they do get them to go out, they wind up spending a fortune and getting dumped a month later. Of those that actually do establish relationships, they find them unfulfilling and fraught with the same, consistent, almost predictable problems.

This book began life about 13 years ago. It was directed to the single man looking for love in Southern California. Since then, it has evolved into something similar, but much more broad in scope. It seeks to bridge the gap between men and women by combining an understanding of men's place in today's world of women, communication skills, sales skills, and an organized plan - once and for all. It does this by focusing on the man's core - who we are, by evolution, by education, by society, and by necessity.

Men and women have continued to have the same problems for hundreds of years. It's time to put these problems to rest. We are in a woman-focused time in history. Not that this is bad, but it is one-sided. Men have an opportunity to succeed in their relationships just as they have strived to succeed in their jobs.

It's time for men to take their place. To be the partners that women want them to be. Not necessarily what they say they want, but what they really want - and need! As men we owe this to our women. Women crave who and what we are fundamentally. May the joy of being a man become part of your daily life. May the women in your life find new reasons to love and cherish you. May you begin to get along, communicate, and find your best with your partner. I wish this for you.
