What’s the only thing better than free dating advice??

Evidence-Based Free Dating Advice

Valentine’s Day is once again upon us. If you’re single and ready to meet your soul mate, I have a special present for you on this episode of the Love, Happiness and Success Podcast: Some fantastic evidence-based dating advice from relationship researcher, and scientific advisor Dr. Justin Garcia.

Dr. Garcia, along with evolutionary biologist Dr. Helen Fisher, have just released their latest batch of research from their ongoing “Singles in America” research study. They have some fascinating new data about what singles are really looking for, what’s most important to them, and what some of their biggest turn-off’s are. His dating advice can help you seriously “up your game” when it comes to dating.

No doubt modern dating can be challenging, but as with all things knowledge is power. If you educate yourself about the realities of the dating game, learn how to play up your most attractive qualities, and are mindful of the common dating mistakes that can turn people off you’ve already got a huge advantage.

Random dating research tidbits that can make or break a first date:

Did you know that 66% of all singles surveyed reported that having their date send a text while they were together was a major turn off? That number gets bumped up to 75% if you answer a call while you’re out! And you won’t even believe what your dates really think about your cracked phone screen…

Listen to my interview with Dr. Garcia to learn:

  • What do men really think about women who are go-getters?
  • What are modern singles really looking for in a partner?
  • What people really think about first-date s-e-x?
  • And so much more…

You’ll get great love advice and learn the easy things you can do (or even more importantly — avoid doing!) to increase the odds that next Valentine’s Day you’ll be snuggling with your sweetie. If you’d like even more specific advice to help you master the art of modern dating, get instant access to our new “Find The One” online dating coaching program.

Why Are You Still Single?

Why Are You Still Single?

Why are you still single?

The short — and extremely obvious — answer that you’ll get from every dating coach:
You haven’t met the right person yet.

But things could be about to change quickly, my friend.
Why? Because we’re now entering “Dating Season.”
Yes, there is really a Dating Season, and the starting whistle is about to blow.

It’s easy to be intimidated by the snow and / or icy blue skies of January in Denver, and think that no one in their right mind could possibly be out mingling right now. We imagine that the easiest time for dating in Denver is in July, when everyone is out at a BBQ with a beer in their hand or running around in a tank top. Not so. It’s right now.

Every Denver dating coach knows, present company included, that there is about to be a flood of eligible new singles on the dating scene, just as eager to “Find The One” as you are.

Here’s why:

1) Two Words: Holiday. Season.

Many, if not most, singles have a hard time during the holiday season. When they go home to visit family they get cornered by concerned moms, dads and college friends who want to talk about why a catch like them is still single. Well-meaning grandparents, aunts and cousins helpfully point out that it suuuuuuure would be nice for them to bring a nice guy / girl home someday, which is as annoying as it is painful.

Worse yet is being around siblings and friends who have married and are now having children. Holding a friend’s baby can make single people can feel like the train has left the station, leaving them behind. This creates a lot of anxiety, and raises motivation to get out there and meet someone so that they never have to live through a holiday season as a single again.

2) New Year’s Resolutions:

There are three top New Year’s resolutions: Finances, Fitness and Finding Love (for singles). Especially being fresh out of the holiday experience, many single people resolve that THIS WILL BE THE LAST YEAR of their singledom.

The first order of business on the bleary morning of January 1 is getting to work setting up their profile. This is great news for you, because you’ll have lots of other singles new to the scene who are interested in connecting with YOU.

3) Countdown to Valentine’s Day

It’s coming. In fact, at the time of this writing, V-Day is just SIX weeks away. It can be such a fun holiday for people when they have a love in their lives to celebrate with, but it can be a tough one for singles. And trust me — people are already thinking about it. How can you not? The day they take down the Christmas Trees at Target, they start hanging up pink and red hearts and setting out the romantic cards and chocolates.

Singles want to be included in the impending love-fest, and who can blame them? Especially for people who’ve sat out a lonely Valentine’s Day in the past, there can be a sense of urgency around making sure that this year is different — and the clock is ticking!


Your “Match” Is Waiting For YOU.

This flood of new daters at this time of year is such a “thing” that calculates a 38% increase in the number of people signing up for their services between now and Valentine’s Day.

So bottom line — this is it! This is the time of year to get out there, and get busy meeting people. The odds are good!
