Those That Can, Do; Those That Can’t, Date?
There are two ways to look at a dating coach that herself has trouble finding the right person. It could either be comforting to go through the process with a coach that is in the same boat and understands your troubles or it could be disconcerting to take advice from someone that has the same types of dating failures you're paying good money to avoid. The reality probably lies somewhere in the middle for Alma Rubenstein, founder of The Professional Dater.
Though Rubenstein has counseled countless singles on improvements in personal hygiene, fashion, dating techniques and flirting ability, she has had trouble finding the right person because she at times does not practice what she preaches. As a recent LA Times article detailed, Rubenstein still finds a way to connect with those that come to her for romantic advice because of her experience being single and the way she modifies her life to remain receptive to meeting someone new.
She does do one thing well and that is getting the people that come to her to make changes in their lives to be ready for an opportunity to come along. In life and in dating, simply preparing for an opportunity to happen can put one ahead of the game. Online dating have done a great job in helping people meeting a whole new set of potential dates, but there is still that first real-life meeting or cup of coffee that has to be navigated.
Rubenstein sees her role as facilitating that process, helping singles make real connections and remain bold in their dating habits. That is difficult for anyone to do, including professional dating coaches like Rubenstein, even with extensive knowledge of how someone should act. As anyone on a first date knows, all the advice in the world sometimes can't shake the shyness or nervousness that comes with a new experience.
Online dating can provide a wealth of opportunities, but services like Rubenstein's can help daters take better advantage of the chances Yahoo Personals, Match.com or other dating services websites might afford.
