    Don't Make This Common First-Date Mistake

    Don't Make This Common First-Date Mistake

    Ever found yourself slipping into the therapist role with a guy when what you really want is to create deep attraction with him?
    Instead of being in a fun, flirtatious situation with someone who’s trying to get to know more about you, you find yourself sitting patiently while someone unloads all of their problems onto you.
    You’re not alone. But there is a way out.
    In this brand-new clip from a small live show, I show you how to escape the “therapist trap” with a guy so that you can keep building the attraction and tension that lead to a second date.

    I’m about to share a recent public moment that bothered me . . .   
    While watching a video clip from my recent appearance on the Pretty Intense podcast with Danica Patrick—an experience I thoroughly enjoyed—I couldn’t help but notice something: I kept saying a particular word. And not just once or twice.
    Over the course of just a couple minutes, I couldn’t even keep my total in the single digits.
    As someone who’s spent an entire career in public speaking and content creation, the more I said this word, the more the demons in my mind went into “media frenzy press conference mode.”
    Prepare yourself: This is an honest reenactment of how embarrassment plays out in our heads. I hope this gives you a laugh and also helps you realize that you can take something like this and use it to turn a mortifying moment into an opportunity for growth.

Thank you!

So, I wrote a message to your IG account thanking you all for what you do. But then I heard in your podcast that you read the iTunes reviews, and I wanted to be sure you knew how grateful I was! I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. I know that it wasn’t by chance that I stumbled upon your YouTube channel. I went through the most painful breakup four months ago with the man I was with for three years. We were planning on marrying. I’ve spent the past 4 months going through all the stages of grief over and over. I don’t understand why things had to happen the way they did. And I don’t know how I’ve made it this far. At the beginning of the breakup, I truly had no desire to move forward in life. But since I’ve started watching your videos and listening to your podcasts, I’m beginning to feel a confidence about myself that I haven’t felt in a while. I’m beginning to recognize my self-worth again. I’m realizing the ways in which I should continue growing, and the ways in which I’m doing an amazing job. I was so incredibly hard on myself after the breakup, and I was incredibly mean to myself. Now I can say that with the ways in which I’m improving my mental health and my thinking patterns, and the dedication I have to all of your videos and podcasts, I finally feel hope again. I know I have a long journey ahead. Some days feel raw all over again. But I’m healing. Little by little. I know I’ll get there. Please don’t stop doing what you do. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for touching so many people. The world needs more kind, compassionate, and inspiring men like you guys! ❤️ Sincerely, your new, biggest fan.

Thank You Guys

So I am in my early twenties, by that I mean 21-23 years old. I have recently discovered this podcast when I got rejected by a guy who liked me first. I thought there was something wrong with me, but listening to this episodes help me realise that I wasn’t doing anything wrong, and doing nothing wrong with him. We were just talking, but I didn’t like him at first. Not until I learned more about him, but when I told him, he said he wanted to friends. Once he said that, I just needed to hear a podcast and understand/ process what happened. Then this podcast popped up, and I have been hooked. So thank you guys for this podcast. It helped me process this rejection and realise what I should be looking for within myself and within the next guy I’m interested in. Thank you!

Great way to get news ,

Thank You

I recently discovered your podcast and I follow you on Instagram after hearing some of your advice that I thought was great! The episode “How to feel secure agin after your trust has been destroyed” is something so special and insightful I just had to write a review. I really want to say that the tips you gave are life changing… well at least they are for me. I didn’t really come full circle that one of my biggest issues was my fear and inability to WANT to trust again after I have been hurt by so many until hearing you talk about it. By the end with your final tip of loving so beautifully that even if trust is broken you leave that relationship with the most loving person… yourself… left me in tears. My soul truly felt soothed and at peace after hearing the reassurance and being reminded that I will have my own strength to rely on. So thank you for reminding me of the strong, kind, and loving woman I am who will now be a lot bolder and less scared than she was before.
