Los Angeles Dating Coach FAQ

1. What is a dating coach?

My job is to help guys in the greater LA area build confidence, meet women you're attracted to, learn to flirt, land dates, and generally have more fun and options with women.

Specifically, I'll teach you to:

👋 Meet higher quality women both IRL, and on apps like Hinge, Bumble, Tinder, The League, and Raya.

😏 Create chemistry when you communicate even with the "9s and 10s" you spot at yoga today.

📲 Send the right message every time so your texts result in dates, not crickets.

📅 Plan great dates so you have fun, and build deeper connections and relationships.

💇 Upgrade your image by providing actionable advice on your wardrobe and grooming.

🤠 Build confidence so you're comfortably in control, not awkward or anxious, around women.

🔍 Find the perfect partner based on your lifestyle, needs, and goals.

Just in case it wasn't clear elsewhere on this page, many of my clients are based in Los Angeles, but I work with guys all over the world!

2. What are your qualifications?

My #1 qualification is my clients' results:

I've helped 3,000+ men learn to attract women they're excited about, both online and IRL.

More than 95% of my clients report they'd recommend working with me to a friend.

In addition to the testimonials scattered throughout this page, you can check out more of my clients' stories on my Reviews page, and my new Wall of Love ❤️

Additionally, millions of men tune in for my free advice across my Instagram, my TikTok, and my YouTube, and I've been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, New York Post, Forbes, and more!

3. DOES coaching even work?

Assuming you hire a good coach...

Heck yeah it works!

How quickly you see results will depend on several factors:

First, it depends on what you want to accomplish.

Strictly want help getting better matches? Check out my Online Dating OS course, which will teach you EXACTLY how to make a top 1% profile on apps like Hinge.

Struggling to land second dates? I have tons of shortcuts that will help, but A+ confidence and conversation skills can take time to build.

Many men who are considering investing in a dating coach need help with more than just matches which is why I offer my 1x1 Jumpstart Program.

Second, it depends on your work ethic.

Contrary to popular belief, dating it's like any other skill.

Once you understand the organizing principles, the more effort you invest, the better the results you’ll get!

Coaching isn't magic, though, and you can't cheat the grind.

Still, the same way you'd beat most people at pickleball if you spent an hour a day playing with a pro for 3 months, you'll leapfrog most men in your dating pool by spending an hour a day working with me for 3 months 💪

Third, it depends your ability to follow directions.

Working with 3,000+ client has taught me that (A) some guys follow directions MUCH better than others, and (B) this difference corresponds perfectly with guys' results from my coaching programs.

An easy test is whether you got good grades in school when you focused on your studies.

Yes? You can expect fast results from working with me!

No? For example, even when you studied for months, you still failed the test? Honestly you may not get results from coaching, and I don't want you to waste your money.


Hiring a dating coach can start at around $100 USD, and I've heard of LA-based coaches charging $10,000+ USD 🤯

My services range from $149 USD for my Texting Operating System and Online Dating Operating System courses, to $3,985 USD to work with a coach on my team 1x1 through my Jumpstart Program.

My most popular program, my Masterclass, is in between at $1,295 USD.

A few thoughts on price:

1. Prominent coaches aren't cheap.

Coaches with big online followings tend to have more demand for their services than they can keep up with, and their prices reflect this.

2. Expensive ≠ effective.

Sadly I've worked with a number of Los Angeles-based clients who've wasted tens of thousands of dollars on other coaches who didn't help 😳

3. You can find help on any budget.

If the coach you're considering doesn't have a product or service in your price-range, keep looking. There are great resources out there for anyone who can afford to date!


Quality coaching isn't cheap, so this is a fair question. Consider three things:

First, how highly do you value results?

Coaching can be a significant investment, but if it leads you to your dream partner (or even just helps you stop feeling frustrated with women), it may be a steal.

Second, what's your opportunity cost?

If investing in your dating life would mean struggling to make rent, don't hire me or any other coach! It's not worth it.

But if investing in your dating life would mean saving a little less this month, then what are you waiting for?!

Third, what happens if you don't hire a coach?

Think about yourself in 5 months, or even 5 years. How does your life look if you stay on your current path? How does your life look if you hire a coach, and it helps?

One more thing to consider: good coaches offer money-back guarantees (myself included!) so you can try a program out without taking on massive financial risk.

6. Is a dating coach right for me?

Didn't your parents tell you not to ask a barber whether you need a haircut?! 💇

Just kidding. My career is in a place where I regularly have to turn down clients, so I can answer objectively...

Honestly, it depends!

Many guys benefit from working with a dating coach, but some guys don't...

Three things to consider are:

1. Do you feel agency over your life?

Guys who get results from coaching feel like they have agency, and trust that they can accomplish their meaningful goals in life with effort and the right guidance.

Guys who have victim mentalities about life (e.g. "dating is out of my control...") tend not to get results, and coaching isn't worth it for them.

2. Are you willing and ready to learn?

As long as you believe you have something to learn when it comes to women and dating, coaching will be worth it!

If you believe you know everything about women and dating already, and you're looking for a pro to validate that dating is "rigged" against you, however, coaching won't be worth it.

3. Can you comfortably invest in yourself?

I mean "invest" holistically. Do you have time, energy, and money you can invest toward improving your life?

If yes, you'll see high ROI from hiring a coach!

If no, wait until you're in a more comfortable spot.

7. How well do you know LOS ANGELES?

I know Los Angeles well!

My LA adventure began after college, as many of my girlfriends moved to Santa Monica and Hollywood for work.

These days, I tend to spend more time in the beach cities (my in-laws live in Manhattan Beach, and many of my girlfriends have moved to Orange County!) but I'm still downtown all the time.

The greater Los Angeles area is a great place to date!

💵 The economy is strong, which means brutal traffic on the 405 (boo!) as well as lots of attractive women moving here for work (yay!)

🏄 There's a great outdoor culture because the weather is so good, which makes it easy to meet women IRL (e.g. join a run club) not just online.

🥳 There's so many good bars, restaurants, and activities for dates. Some of my favorite spots in LA are Horses on Sunset, Cobi's in Santa Monica, and the Manhattan Beach Post.


You're on her website 🤠

In all seriousness, I'm not sure anyone can claim to be the BEST dating coach for a few reasons...

First off, comparisons tend to be apples-to-alligators.

Different dating coaches focus on different things:

  • There are pickup artists, who teach guys lines to spit at girls at Delilah in hopes of getting laid...
  • There are online dating coaches, who focus exclusively on remaking your profiles for apps like Raya...
  • Then there are coaches like me, who take a systems approach to each step of the dating process...

Second off, it's hard to measure results.

Sadly many coaches share fake client stories, which makes it hard to tell who's legit.

Pay close attention to any coach's testimonials, and decide for yourself if they feel authentic.

I had to work with 3,000 clients to get 100+ real client reviews because even my most successful clients may feel awkward admitting they hired a coach!

One more thought here...

The "best dating coach" lists Google surfaces in searches are pay-to-play b.s. 💩

It's great that I'm included on many of them, but being honest, the people who create these lists don't actually evaluate coaches' skills, or their clients' results.

Avoid coaches who claim their inclusion on these "best" lists as reason to hire them 🙄

9. how Should i CHOOSE a dating coach in LA?

There are terrific dating coaches who specialize in serving clients in Los Angeles, and there are some charlatans you want to avoid 😜

To choose the right coach, consider:

1. Do you want to work with a coach physically in LA?

Specifically, do you want in-person coaching; do you just want to a coach who knows Los Angeles and understands the dating scene; or is neither factor essential?

For context, most dating coaches (myself included) practice 100% remotely, though some coaches offer in-person services.

2. Does the coach know what they're talking about?

Most coaches share free advice on social media (e.g. I share dating tips on my Instagram daily).

Does the coach's advice resonate with you? When you try the advice for yourself, does it work?

3. Are their testimonials legit?

Any trustworthy coach will have lots of client stories and reviews like mine you can study before making a decision.

If you're considering a coach and they have scant or questionable-looking reviews, run!

4. Would you want them in your social circle?

Your coach will be by your side for weeks or months throughout your dating journey. You should feel confident that you'd enjoy their company riding shotgun with you!

10. how much time should i be able to invest?

The answer depends on what you're trying to accomplish, but I offer several programs that have helped busy guys (e.g. CEOs and pro athletes) get results fast.

How I'd suggest you think about it:

Have time to date today?

If you're actively dating currently (or you would be actively dating if you were meeting more women!) you 100% have enough time to work with a dating coach.

No time to date today?

If you find yourself canceling or avoiding dates because of other commitments, wait to hire a dating coach until you have more spare time.
