Just as a photo alone is not enough to cultivate strong attraction in women, a profile that just has a few lines, or is full of generic pickup artist scripts, does not give women something real to be attracted to.
After divorce, part of the healing process for many people is finding themselves through the eyes of a new relationship. Whether you are looking for love, or just companionship, it can be difficult to develop relationships during this transitional stage in your life. For many of our clients, they have been out of the dating pool for many years and do not know where to meet like-minded people.
