The biggest – and most preventable – mistake women make in dating


The biggest – and most preventable – mistake women make in dating
Why this one big mistake is “the kiss of death” in many relationships that could have real potential

Here’s the finer distinction: neither feminine, nor masculine, is wrong here. Both are perfectly right. In fact, it’s a beautiful representation of two of the finer qualities and traits in both energies or genders. So if that is so, how do we navigate this?

It’s all about timing...

You never want to try to limit a man's options too soon; it just makes you seem needy. Give him the freedom to feel like he can come and go and never chase him. Just show him that you’re a high-value woman with a lot of options and he’ll pursue YOU. I help my women clients UNDERSTAND this critical concept and that awareness alone is a huge step in the right direction – but it’s not enough. The most critical I thing I do is help my clients heal their past wounds in order to show up whole and complete, feminine and absolutely radiant. I help these women to show up knowing their value in their hearts and souls, plus I give them the skills and ability to call out the hero in their men any time they want to do it. The really beautiful thing is that when my clients are able to do that...their heroes appear. A man will never feel like he’s giving up his freedom if he’s getting something he wants even more in empowered and radiant partner who sees and calls out his very best.

Does this make sense?

This is only one of the NINE key distinctions that I teach women to help them understand what exactly a man is looking for that makes all the difference between a woman who’s a “keeper” – and one he will decide to keep away FROM instead. I call it
The ManMagnetics Formula™ and using the acronym M.A.G.N.E.T.I.C.S., I teach women how to understand and bring out the best in their men rather than suffer through their worst. The great news is I teach the whole thing for FREE on a website at This material has dramatically changed the lives of the women who know it, but don’t take my word for it. Listen to a few of them yourselves.

How’s Your Dating Bullsh*t Detector?


Recently I had a conversation in an online relationship forum where I coach and one woman brought up the term "bullsh*t detector." She referred to it as a "protective instinct" and seemed kind of proudly defiant, and a little defensive, all at the same time. I get that some people believe a sharp and finely-tuned BS detector is a must-have ... Read more
