Let’s cut the bullshit. Dating advice sucks. We don’t want people knowing that we read or seek out to learn this stuff because we think it’s weird, creepy, or manipulative. When in reality, it’s misunderstood.

Good Dating advice starts with the understanding that it is the process of meeting women and establishing a genuine connection with them. It doesn’t have to be complicated. Good Dating advice is not how to manipulate women. It’s about fixing your approach to dating and essentially, how you view yourself.

You don’t have to be Fabio or a 007 James Bond to get the girl and be happy. All it takes is to get a few basic things right, and project what you want. And we’ve got just the thing to help you get there.

Join John Sonmez, life-coach, author, and founder of SimpleProgrammer and The Bulldog Mindset in this compact, easy-to-understand Dating Guide for Men. For years, John has been helping people all over the world develop core confidence, maximize health, and discover the secrets to becoming a self-made man. Now, he’s sharing real dating advice from hard-earned life-experiences and years of coaching men to dominate their social interactions.

In this course, you’ll get specific, no bullshit, hard tips to achieving your dating goals- whatever they may be. Doesn’t matter if you’re looking for ‘the one’ or just looking to up your dating game. This course will take you from knowing absolutely nothing about dating, to knowing enough to act with confidence.

You’ll learn how to be real with yourself and set your expectations to find the women you want and how to go for them. With situation-specific dating advice in a concise series of audio episodes- discreet and simple, that will equip you with the tools you need to build the social life or love life you want.
