Passage from The Offline Dating Method Introduction:
The Universal Power of Human Connection
“I am human and I need to be loved, just like everybody else does…” - The Smiths, “How Soon is Now”
The tips in The Offline Dating Method are based on natural aspects of human behavior and desires that are hardwired deep within your DNA. That means the advice in this book works for (and on) everyone, regardless of your age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
Over the past decade I've dated men from dozens of different professions, ranging across a fifty-year age span, from all seven continents (well, one spent a few seasons in Antarctica), as well as every major religion. I also have clients and readers from over one-hundred different countries that have applied my tips and enjoyed results in their home cultures.
What I’ve learned from all that is this: at the end of the day, humans are humans are humans. We are all more alike than we are different, and every one of us, on some level, wants acceptance, acknowledgement, appreciation, and love.
This also means that you already have the tools to create meaningful connections and find the love of your life in the real world; they’ve just been buried beneath the noise of modern technology and the five barriers covered earlier.
Passage from The Offline Dating Method Chapter 2:
Important note on cultural differences
"At the end of the day, if you're gay, straight, black, white, it doesn't matter who you are... truly all people want to connect." - Jonathan Van Ness, Queer Eye
Quick note on cultural differences: women from dozens of different countries have reached out to me asking how to navigate the cultural nuances in their corner of the world – e.g. “In Sweden strangers don’t talk to each other,” and “In Indonesia, people think you’re strange if you smile at them.”
I always respond the same: cultural customs may be different, but at the end of the day we’re all still human, which means we all have the same fundamental needs of acceptance, appreciation, and love. I've dated men from all across the world and traveled to over thirty different countries, so I've seen first-hand these universal desires of people across many different cultures, ethnicities, and religions – as well as a broad range of different ages, professions, and personalities.
Maybe in your culture it’s considered weird to talk to strangers, but you personally love chatting-up people you meet on the street. I encourage you to do what feels right for you, and trust that even if most people around you are conforming to the non-chat norm, the right ones will be open to connecting with you - and that’s all you need! Just that one person who sees your wiliness to connect and thinks, “Finally! Someone else who likes to meet new people!” That's your person, and it’s worth pushing through perceived social norms to find him (as long as you’re not breaking any local laws).
The same goes for when you’re traveling the world and want to connect with people in different countries, or even different states within the U.S. Enter every interaction with a genuine intention and love of connection and trust the right people will find you because of that.
The lesson with this is that no matter where you live always stay true to yourself and what feels right for you. If you want to chat-up a stranger or connect deeply with someone, chances are there are other people within arm’s reach of you who want the same thing, but they may not know how or have your same skills or courage to go for it. But they’ll be delighted when you do.
Hiding your need for connection will only prevent you from finding the people who can give it to you.
