No more bad dates | Evan Marc Katz | TEDxStJohns

a talk in English

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. How to Understand and Enjoy Online Dating

Billed as a “personal trainer for smart, strong, successful women,” dating coach Evan Marc Katz has been helping singles find love since 2003. He’s the author of four books, the CEO of e-Cyrano online dating profile writing, and his blog is expected to reach 7 million people this year.

Evan has been featured in the New York Times, The Wall St. Journal, Forbes and Glamour, and has appeared on CNN, Today, The Early Show, The Tyra Banks Show, and The Rachael Ray Show. Most importantly, thousands of Evan’s clients have fallen in love, gotten married, and started families.

Whether you’re online dating, dating or embarking on a new relationship, once you learn to understand men from a man’s point of view, you’re going to be a very powerful woman.
