Dating Guru’s Mailbag

Here is a dating question answered

by our Dating Coach.


” Hi, I have been to some of your dating events.  I wonder if you can help me?  Sometimes, when I find someone attractive at these events I find some guy is sticking to her like bee to honey. Any tips on how I can get past this guy who is completely glued to the attractive girl? Thanks! ”  M

That’s a good question.  It’s something people often ask me, so you’ll be pleased to know I have some answers!

Firstly, remember that you’ve paid to buy a ticket so you have just as much right to talk to these girls as the other men.   So don’t be afraid to go up and say hello, even if you have to (politely) interrupt the other conversation.  She might well be wanting an escape route anyway!

A great way of doing this is to use your icebreaker card.  Have a quick listen to what they are talking about then walk up and ask them both what card they have.  Once conversation is started, you can jump in with your own thoughts.

Also, if you can’t attend with a female friend make sure you use the staff. They are there to help you get dating success.  If you tell them that you would like to meet someone then they can engineer things to make it happen.  Don’t worry, they are highly trained and very subtle.

You should always take part in the speed dating, even if the girl you like isn’t in that particular round.  You will get good conversation practice and you might just meet someone better. Even if you don’t you could possibly make a new female friend who can help you interact with other women.

If you really don’t get a chance to speak to them then make sure you take a note of their username.  You can then email them on the website the next morning.

Finally, make sure that you look like someone women want to meet.  Dress well and look friendly and happy. That way they are more likely to come up and say hi to you.

Good luck!
