From renowned international dating coach comes a “smart, funny, classy, and practical” (Mike Sacks, editor at Vanity Fair) dating guide for men looking to gain confidence and find lasting love in the #MeToo era.

Rejection. Ghosting. Not knowing how to talk to women. For many men, dating just sucks. But it doesn’t have to. There’s a simple yet powerful way to gain instant confidence and attract a great girlfriend: be authentic.

Whether you want to confidently approach women, get quality matches on dating apps, or learn how to avoid the “friend zone,” Dating Sucks, but You Don’t is your “must-read” (Mike Johnson, bestselling author of Make the Love You Want) step-by-step blueprint for landing your soulmate.

Using the power of “radical authenticity,” you’ll unlock your most awesome self and learn how to:
-Be magnetic as you...even if you’re not rich, tall, or great looking
-Always know what to say to ignite chemistry
-Get dates and connect with great women without using creepy “pickup artist” tricks
-Conquer fear and anxiety and confidently approach women (in a way they love)
-Get great matches and dates on Tinder, Bumble, Match, Hinge, or any other dating app
-Create a healthy, supportive relationship with someone who loves you for you

You definitely don’t suck. And when you have total self-confidence and great results, neither does dating.
