This is embarrassing for me but I’ve been considering paying for dating coaching because I want to know how to get dates because I’ve got nothing but rejections from girls in my lifetime of asking girls out. But I’ve been wondering if any of them are legit or are they just scams? Do customers leave actually getting what they wanted? Are there any legit ones?

I worry that they are just glorified pick up artists which I certainly don’t want to become like. I just want to be able to get dates and gain the confidence to be able to date with my best self so that I can find the right person hopefully for a lo Nf term relationship.

I was personally considering hiring dating coaches and buying their books too. I think that some of them are a scam. There is one guy on youtube who says that apparently every single girl will fall for some single pick up line. I think that this is bs. Everyone's different, so while one pick up line could work for one girl, it may not work for another girl. I believe that those ones are an obvious scam.

However, there are some legit ones too. There are some people who are legit interested in helping others to be better at dating and they get good reviews. You just need to be good at identifying which ones are legit and which ones just want to take your money from your bank account.

One I looked at wanted over £3000 for a weekend boot camp where you simply approach 70-80 girls and the coach gives you feedback and ways to improve.

It may or may not be a scam, but I just think that it's not worth the money. Why can't you just approach 70-80 girls on the street yourself and ask for their honest feedback. It's pretty much the same. I don't really see the point in hiring a dating coach for this reason.

Well that’s what I thought. But I think my problem at the moment would be that if struggle to approach even 1 girl I find attractive on the street. I even struggle in societies, at parties etc to do so.

Yes, but a dating coach won't inject you with courage or confidence and he's not going to pick up girls for you. My advice would be to start with more comfortable places rather than on the street. If you're studying at uni then you might want to start a conversation with a girl in classroom or just somewhere on campus. Just start a basic conversation and see where it goes from there. Don't use the dumb pick up lines that some people suggest, because it's extremely cringe and you may come off as arrogant. You need to focus on your conversation skills more than anything and that takes time.

I also get stressed with the whole dating and approaching thing. Which doesn’t help.

I'd just spend the money and time on getting fit. It's sort of a life hack in all areas.

Bottom line is I’m not sure it’s worth £3000 to for someone to watch you making 80-90 approaches and giving you feedback on it. What’s the difference between that and going out with a friend and getting feedback from them?

All PUA's and dating coaches are basically scammers. Besides the fact what academic knowledge do these individuals have?

To reduce the risk of getting scammed, and to avoid the whole PUA route (which I do agree is a scam), you may want to consider a more generic life coach. Although they're not specialists, they're bound to have enough knowledge on the approach / dating protocols to help you out, or at least get you started.

Before signing up or committing to any one individual, do your research (not only on the coach themselves, but on how the industry works... are there national / international accreditation bodies they have to sign to? If they're set up as a business, can you find them on the Companies House website? Have you seen / heard feedback from those who've used them?) Basically, the more background research you do, the better your chances of finding someone decent and legit, and the less likely you are to be disappointed or scammed.

Be wary of anyone pressuring you to sign up very quickly and if they're asking for large sums of money up-front. IMHO, if they're a legit life coach, the initial consultation (where you discuss your needs, concerns etc.) should be for free, and I would expect them to give an honest answer if they can help you or not (after all, it's their image and reputation at steak if they don't succeed in helping you)

I reckon it’s absolute nonsense as you can fundamentally change your looks and personality. So it’s just as good to take some tips, including dress sense, from more successful friends and practice flirting with a wide variety of people. If you constantly go after the most attractive girls the competition will be high, as will the number of blow outs

'In your lifetime'. How old are you?
I could be wrong, but I suspect this is that 30 year old guy who says he's never gotten anywhere with a girl, and has ONLY EVER had rejections and brush-offs all his life; despite having allegedly tried all of the usual self-improvement suggestions (e.g. exercise, grooming styling, hobbies etc.)

If it is him, I did suggest going to a life coach a while ago, as someone needs to see / observe how he flirts / interacts with women and give him specific tailored constructive criticism, as he's almost certainly doing something fundamentally wrong with his approach (I know some people will say keep trying and the right girl will say yes, but come on , he's been doing this for the past 10+ years, and not one has said yes). Theoretically, any friend who's confident with girls could do it, but he didn't have anyone, so this was the next best option.

@OP, if you're not the same guy, I apologise; although i imagine the same thing applies to you as well.
