Overview

For anyone who needs a little help finding love, this book is the ultimate dating makeover kit!

The line at Starbucks. The movies. The Internet. Even the dry cleaners... there are dozens of opportunites to seize the date, but millions of lonely singles pass them by!

David Wygant shows readers just how easy it can be to overcome fear and meet new people in their daily routines. David explains the three simple steps to getting a date with ease: being prepared, being aware, and making contact.

Always Talk to Strangers breaks away from pop psychology, gimmicks, and rules to offer concrete information on how single people actually meet--and successfully date--other singles. No mind games, cheap tricks, or corny pickup lines here. Just common sense, and specific information on:

- Where to go to meet people, and when
- Why bars and clubs are the worst places to get a date
- Overcoming fear and negative thinking
- Using props to start a natural conversation
- Making a great first impression
- Spotting opportunity--and going for it!

    Do you want to find Mr./Mrs. Right? Good. Then Read this book!!

    First and Foremost I would like to thank both the authors for putting these facts in print for us woman. Secondly, I would like to thank Bryan Swerling, for if it were not for him I would not have read this book. So, Ladies, this book is awesome. It tells you what to do before your mind plays those tricks on you. Like right before you are going to approach someone if you wait long enough you will not do it!! This book tells you how to do it and when so that your mind and thoughts don't take over. You must must must read this. It is actually worth more than you will pay for the book. Why wouldn't want to learn new ways of going about meeting people? Even if your not trying to met a significant other, you should still read because you can apply this to your career as well. So, What are you waiting for? Go buy the book!!

    If you can't find love after reading this, you don't deserve it

    This book changed my life. I used to be lonely, now I have more dates than I know what to do with. I feel like an animal -- a crazy dating animal. Bryan and David have done it. I hope the world sits up and takes notice.

    You should buy this

    This book is like a breath of fresh air in the crowded room of unoriginal dating how-to guides and online gimmickry. Wygant and Swerling have taken a fresh, yet common sensicle approach to meeting someone without having to resort to disingenuous tactics and mind games. This book is awesome.

    Sometime You Need A Reminder

    I am New York City-kinda girl living in New York City...it's virtually impossible to not meet someone in this city. There are kinds of places for all the kinds of people you want to meet. Clubs, bars, restaurants, museums, parks, subways, standing in one of the inevitable lines, street-corners(and, no, I am not alluding to the 'professional' variety. But if that's your thing...). And up until a few years ago, I was doing all right. First, second and third dates were more then norm than the exception. Then came the end of school, working full time and studying for the bar exam. I got myself into a routine of leaving for work before the mad rush, leaving for home after the mad rush, eating lunch at my desk and eating dinner in bed before I went to sleep. I walked to and fro with my mind, eyes and ears buried in my iPod. Then I happened upon ALWAYS TALK TO STRANGERS. For me, (I like to think) it wasn't so much a source of new tools, new avenues for meeting people. It was a reminder. A reminder to be proactive: walk to and fro with your head up, ears open and look at people. Smile at those who look back. Talk to the man who's in the same section of the books store, even if you have to ask him a question you already know the answer to. And being in New York, it's always easy to strike up conversation anywhere. For example, my last date was the result of 'Someone forgot to take her medication this morning': my comment to an attractive man on the street corner about someone who was talking to 'one of the friends' in her head. My lesson from this book: Anytime, anywhere, anyplace...just speak up! It isn't about about finding your soul mate, it isn't about finding the love of your life. It's about the possibility of finding those things, and possibilities increase with each and every chance you take on the stranger standing next to you.

    A Must Read for All Singles!

    As a single woman in NYC, I find it becoming increasingly difficult to meet someone new in this city's 'perpetual meat market'. This is a town where many singles are in too much of a rush to get to the next place in their lives, or too wrapped up in the autonomous lifestyle of this great city to stop and take the time to meet new people. A girlfriend of mine had read about this book in the paper, and after we'd both tried 'Hes Just Not That Into You' and felt let down by its blanket credo--we figured it was worth a shot. I must say that ALWAYS TALK TO STRANGERS delivers on exactly what it promises. The book is filled with real life situations and anecodotes, plenty of honest advice, and useful tools such as checklists. It's a quick, easy and enjoyable read, and I was able to finish in a little over a day. Needless to say, I decided to 'test' it out this morning...I went to my usual Starbucks by my office for my morning coffee and smiled at a cute guy on line behind me. The smile turned into a conversation, and the conversation turned into meeting for drinks later this week. It turns out that he works in my office building and has wanted to speak to me before, but didn't know how to break the ice...so I did it for him and it worked. David Wygant and Bryan Swerling's book is a MUST read for any single person who feels lost in the world of so many people who seem so hard to meet. I'd recommend this book to every single one of my single friends. It's far different than anything else I have ever read.

    Definitely Talk To Strangers...

    After spending years combing the self-help section of popular bookstores and reading articles in popular newspapers and magazines, authors David Wygant and Bryan Swerling have showed me that I have been looking for love in all the wrong places. It turns out that I have discounted and ignored the most obvious places where I would bump into and/or meet someone who shares my interests and goals. Instead of joining clubs, attending speed dating sessions, and other costly and gruesome escapades, the modern-day Hitch has reminded me of what I already know: I just need to be me. Unlike other books on dating, ALWAYS TALK TO STRANGERS does not talk down to the reader and does not preach. Most of all, it does not make me feel insignificant or 'bad' because I still am single. Instead, as I read the book (in one sitting) each page turned and winked at me as if the page and the text were saying to me, 'you can do this, just be yourself.' If you want a light, fun, and inexpensive read that brings you back to dating and even people basics, ALWAYS TALK TO STRANGERS should be at the top of your list.
