Online Dating Guide for the Socially Anxious Man

This guide is for socially anxious men that are looking for the right women in an online setting. (Ladies’ Guide Coming Soon)

This guide will show you how to dramatically improve your chances of meeting the type of women that you want to meet. This is not a pick up manual. This guide is about genuinely getting to know a woman in order to give you the best chance at a healthy and lasting relationship.

There are 3 main parts to successful online dating:

  1. The messages you send to other members.

    • Here’s where to find details about what to say and what not to say.
  2. The right photos that make you look good.

    • Capture an image of yourself at your best so you can get the best.
  3. A self-summary that is simple, humorous and genuine.

    • This is your dating CV. This is your first chance to wow her.

No one part is more important than the other. It will take a combination of all three to be successful but unless certain steps are done right, a potential date will not move on to the next step. I have listed them in the order needed to encourage a reader to keep reading.

Everything in this guide is easy to do but very difficult to master. This will take work but the girl that’s waiting for you is worth every bit of it.
