Generally when I receive email regarding my online dating guide I don’t post anything about that here. However, I’ve decided to make an exception for one of the emails I recently received a month or two ago. This is because in this case the person who read my guide is taking the exact steps I hope all my readers would. Here’s the email:
I read your online dating guide at the beginning of the year, and I have to say that it is THE BEST dating guide ever. You don’t give people instructions to change their personality or try new ways of messaging women, but you gave a great methodical approach to getting dates. After reading your guide, I set a goal of going out with 30 women this year just to know more of what I want in a partner. Some of my friends didn’t think that I would make it, and some of them though I was a little crazy, but I thought it was an achievable goal since you had mentioned that you had gone out with more than 30 women in your online guide.
Right now, I’m at girl #21 with a couple of months to go. A lot of what you mentioned in your guide is true. I’m starting to find out what I really want in a woman and what I was accepting are two different things. I wouldn’t say I’m a dating genius, but I do enjoy the dating process way more. It doesn’t really bother me now if a girl doesn’t respond to my emails or return my calls. I’ve started to come up with my own methods as well for success.
Anyways, I can’t say enough about your guide, and when I’m done with achieving my goal, maybe I’ll write a guide myself.
The thing that encourages me most about this email is that he did not just read my guide and simply stick with what I had written. I’m not a fan of advice that says there’s only one way to do things so my hope has always been to give readers a starting point where they could then build on that advice. In this case, that’s exactly what’s happening. We’ve talked back and forth a few times since this email and he is taking a very different approach with online dating in a few areas… and I think that’s great.
If you have read my dating guide or are considering doing so keep this readers approach and results in mind. Taking my advice may be good…but building on my advice to plot your own course is great.
