Calgary’s men have money to spend and a few lessons to learn. That being said, business is booming for dating coaches in YYC.
So, for all you single people out there who are looking for relationships, or even just a one night stand – the question is: should you drink that Kool-Aid?
What exactly is the dating coach going to pour into your cup? Let’s talk ingredients.
The Nutritional label
1) How to dress
2) False notions of past relationships that are “impacting your current state”
3) Defining your expectations of yourself, partner and relationships
4) What introductions to use and conversation topics for the first few dates
5) Where to meet other single people
Regular Kool-Aid has 24g of sugar, 10% of your daily intake of vitamin C, followed by a long list of chemically infused ingredients that nobody knows how to pronounce. It is fair to say that Kool-Aid is not an overall healthy drink…but it sure is tasty.
Oh yeah? More like “Oh no…”
So – is the date-coach Kool-Aid drink any different? The drink is still full of sugar, but it is richer in “vitamin C”…as represented in Number 2 and 3. Beyond the bullshit of peacock outfits, what to talk about, and where to meet people – there could be a significant value in facing the past and addressing your expectations. Perhaps this is where the validity to the art of the business of dating coaching exists…to help you maximize your “vitamin C” intake.
However, understanding this “vitamin C” is essential, but it does not mean that you should drink the Kool-Aid. Why? Because Kool-Aid is still full of sugar and the majority of the ingredients are terrible for you. Perhaps it is in your best interest to seek out an alternative, healthier drink such as fresh squeezed orange juice as recommended by a medical professional. This avenue allows you to keep your money in your pocket and make use of the health care system, collecting food stamps for each OJ purchased.
Experts in any field can be great – but until I meet a dating coach that is in a healthy and committed long-term relationship I stand by my opinion. I see this profession as the shoemaker with no shoes…and when Jim Jones comes knocking and offering me that Kool-Aid, I wont drink it.
