I remember the moment everything clicked.
I was on a trendy rooftop bar when I saw a Zooey Deschanel lookalike. While the thought of talking to her made me anxious, I had a dating coach as a secret weapon.
He suggested a unique approach: tell the truth.
Be honest, vulnerable. I walked up to her and said, “Hi. I’m actually pretty shy, but I had to meet you.” She smiled, her blue eyes widening. “Wow—you’re so real and direct,” she said. “I’m Amy.” Instant chemistry.
I remember thinking, “Wait—you can just walk up, be yourself and get gorgeous girls into you?” I was hooked.
(That’s right: You could even talk about your love of whittling.)
