About The Blog

Here you will find information on dating techniques, relationship advice, communication skills, social influence, persuasion, self-esteem, social dynamics, goal-setting, attraction, courtship, sexuality, confidence, and much more.

As you may have guessed from the title, I am a Doctor of Social and Personality Psychology (Ph.D.). Therefore, the information I present is well-grounded in scientific theory and research. Also, my perspective is often different from the self-help, dating guru, relationship advice, girl rules, seduction community, or pick-up artists that you might know. Give it a try though, it could be just the perspective you're trying to find.

My Story

For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be loved.  I wanted a companion, a partner, somebody to be with. Somebody to date and make me smile.

I expended a lot of effort in my search for love and companionship. I worked hard looking for people. I went on countless dates. I got entangled in many relationships of various types and intensities. I took my lumps and broken hearts. I made my mistakes as well. It was not an easy process.

If you are reading this blog, then you can probably relate to some or all of this story. Millions of people can. I'm far from unique. Although the dates, faces, and situational specifics change from person to person. We all have difficulty dating and relating somewhere along the way.

Like so many others, my story would end there too. It would end trapped in the frustration of an unsatisfying dating cycle. I might have given up and settled. But, I had one major difference from many other people...

During this process, I was working my way through a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, a Master's degree in Clinical Social Work, then a Master's degree and Doctorate in Psychology. I was literally surrounded by research, information, and professional experts on the very problems I was facing. I was on my way to BECOMING one of those experts. So, I couldn't just settle for the same "not knowing" as everyone else. I was supposed to know how dating and relationships worked!

With that realization, I resolved to find my solutions. I resolved to find answers to how I could have a satisfying love life. The blog, services, and products I provide are a distillation of those answers. They are the culmination of my professional education, as well as countless hours of review and application of the scientific research. They are the wisdom and experience I gained from meeting literally thousands of potential romantic partners, hundreds of first dates, and numerous relationships. Finally, they are a perspective, a way of seeing the world, that I grew into on my journey.

I decided to write this blog because I believe other people can benefit from this perspective. It can provide a new way of seeing the world. A way of seeing that is more positive, hopeful, and kinder to yourself. A way out of the unsatisfying cycle of dating and into a better place. A way to find the love and satisfaction I now have in my life.
