Does anyone else agree dating "coaches" are scam artists?

They have all this great "advice" and tell you about the social "dynamics" of how people interact with each other. It looks good on paper but it's all a hoax. They just want to scam you for money. There is no "game" or "skill" in getting a girlfriend/boyfriend, or getting laid for that matter. It's pretty much luck: You're either rich and good looking or ugly and broke. It's as simple as that. It hurts both genders (the money part mainly hurts men.) Why does anyone trust these people?

Most Helpful Guy

  • Because some men are desperate for help, if you are not rich, good looking, or even lucky what can you do :o

    But seriously, they are trying to teach the exact same thing to every guy, one size does not fit all

      BINGO! You hit it on the nose

    • The truly sad part is that they will realize it... generation after generation of men

What Girls Said 2

  • I pick D. Not all of them are necessarily scam artists, but the title "dating coach" is so ridiculously stupid. Is there a degree to dating? Is there a dating training to get you qualified to be a coach? *facepalm* they're just like those self-proclaimed messiahs.

    • Well put. You make great points.

  • Not at all. Advice is what it is, advice. It's not meant for everyone.

    • But their advice assumes that every single girl is the same.

    • Show All
    • No, they give advice such as "women like this/women don't like this", which assumes every girl is the same.

    • But do you understand that you're a human being with a mind of your own? You can form judgments based on what works or doesn't work for you? Just because their advice doesn't pertain to your situation, it doesn't mean it doesn't apply to other people.

  • It's desperate peoples fault for allowing themselves to be strung along.

    Instead of paying for the service I'll tell you what they actually do. They constantly just ask women out every day until they get a yes. They get rejected 40 times in a single day but they got like 4 yeses as well on that day.

    this is supposed to be a joke but it actually is what most of those "dating coaches" advice comes down to.

  • I think that the problem is this: the ability to date well, is mostly due to "emotional intelligence" or "social intelligence" or whatever you want to call it, that enables some people to read others and adjust their behavior "in real time." In other words, you me someone, decide you're interested, approach them, and then while interacting with them you quickly "get" whether they're interested, what they dislike, what interests them, and you successful "go" with that. Probably nothing can change that innate ability.

    However, part of dating is EXPERIENCE. A good dating coach can help you develop whatever ability you have to read others, and help you come up with strategies to act and dress appropriately. To that extent, a dating coach can help.

    • But women are superficial and don't care about "social" or "emotional" intelligence.

    • Show All
    • No, the "cool" guy has a stack of cash, regardless of his social status.

      I don't know why men in your age group have this delusional mindset among women. You grew up in a different generation than I have. You can't speak for MODERN DAY women in their 20's.

    • Tell me more about what you think modern women value. Do you think all they value is money? Maybe you're right about modern women, although judging by the posts of GAG - I'm not.

  • yes, they are.

  • It depends on the dating coach. Some, like Jad T Jones and Stephen Erdman are very genuine and free of manipulation.

  • Not all of them.

    Mostly just the ones who say things like "This will work on any girl," or "this will get you laid guarenteed."

  • Depends on the coach obviously. Frankly RSD is a fantastic source.

    Honestly, social skills should be taught in school, but because that isn't the case these kinds of people are needed.

  • If anyone can get the message through to someone that life is short, you get one chance so you might as well love yourself and go for it then they are a good dating coach. After all that it is dressing better and maybe gaining some manners and anyone with fashion sense and manners can pull that off.
