Matthew Hussey, for those late discoverers (like me), is a dating expert who coaches millions of women. Thousands at live events, millions online. And he really has the correct answer to everything.
Now, don’t raise your eyebrows at the phrase “dating expert” or “dating coach.” He knows his stuff, and has a knack of disclosing that knowledge in a very fun and sincere way.
And trust me, having only liked He’s Just Not That Into You (and What The Hell Is He Thinking for why he is not) as far as any dating tip (collection) is concerned, I am very picky. I’ve been there, done that, heard it all. Or so I thought.
I first heard about the dude through a Glamour article. The writer said that she was sent to the event to bust his bubble, but was so impressed by what she saw that she decided to write a piece about getting a guy in 7 days, with guidelines from Matthew Hussey of course.
Now, while it was a fun piece and made me wonder if the guy was nearly that good, it was just easier to assume the writer got lucky.
Nevertheless, I googled him and decided to check his website. It turned out he was a life coach, not just a dating coach. After watching one of his live events entirely, I decided that he was a damned good one at that. But more on that later.
His dating advice website Get the Guy looked decent enough in design, but even with all the credentials (he has been featured on NBC, CNN, The Independent…), I still thought he would be all hyped. Hell, I was ready to bail the moment I detected tips on game playing. Well, he did no such thing. (If anything, he is against game playing. And makes a point of showing why playing hard to get has never worked.)
So then I went on to watch the sales video of The Man Myth. Now, it is a sales page that actually sells. And what he offers is the video (online) of a live event where he covers a lot from meeting different men to scoring dates, from getting to see following dates to managing relationships. It also includes a 14-day free trial for the more detailed stuff. And it is $29.95.
So yes, I bought it. If it'd turned out to be disappointing, I would have had material to write for the blog. As it turned out, I got so much material for pretty much everything, including answers to any question I’ve ever had about dating and guys.
None of the links I used are affiliate links by the way. I just really liked what I saw.
Here’s some of the stuff I found out:
*Why I attract so many guys I don’t want to attract (the one I was most curious about!)
*How that not-so-pretty girl could land that gorgeous, nice and successful guy
*Why taking risks is important
*Why you have to risk rejection, but how you can minimize the chances
*How to meet anyone
*How to make the first move without making it seem that way
*Why some things worked and many things didn’t.
*Men and women are from the same planet. We just have different languages.
*Why couples love hanging out with couples, and how it is not productive for the singles to socialize with them all the time
*How to make yourself understood without ever having to fight or losing your temper.
*Why the best-looking guys might not be the hardest to approach
*Why any of your excuses (your looks, age, location….you name it) are not valid. (and I believed I had some pretty good ones!)
…..and a whole lot more.
You might think you know the answers, but trust me, you don’t. Not for the most part. And even when you do know the answers, you learn about why you can’t seem to put that into practice, and how you can go about applying them with success.
And you know how I know that he’s right? Because I did some of the stuff he said in the past, sometimes consciously and sometimes not, and it all worked. I just didn’t do it enough.
His video is bound to kick your ass into gear. Because throughout, he proves that he knows what he’s doing over and over again. And it is so much fun. This is coming from someone who actively avoids any training/how-to videos. Seriously. They bore me. I would rather go through an e-book at my own speed, skipping if there is anything irrelevant or boring. Well, he doesn’t say anything irrelevant or boring.
And he practices what he preaches, and he looks the part. He’s good-looking and very cute, confident but not arrogant, funny and blunt but never obnoxious. It sounds like the kind of guy you’d like to date, right? Someone who knows what they are doing, approachable and friendly.
Trust me, Matthew supports my line of thinking. Just listen to how he picked his fitness coach.
And the best part is? You don’t have to hire him as a life coach to learn a lot more than how to manage your dating life.
Just watch his event, and you can learn about how to:
-Be a great public speaker
-How to build your brand
-How to start and manage your own successful business
And if you are a blogger, you can learn about promotion, design, brand consistency, using video and so on. I should make a whole other post on this for my writing blog.
Bored with my praises? You don’t think he is worth it? Go try it, and we’ll talk then.
He’s Just Not That Into You is a good resource. But it fails to tell you why he is not just that into you. And how he could have been.
And if you don’t want to spend $29.95 right away, just go through his blog posts, watch a couple of his videos. Trust me, you’ll want more.
