After 20 years in personal growth, Dating Demystified was the first time I was able to really experience men and women trusting and loving without the veil of shame and pretense that most of us carry around in our everyday lives. My facebook status after leaving this workshop was: It’s never too late to learn how to Love!

This workshop cracked my heart open. I never, ever dreamed that I would share myself so deeply with a room full of strangers . . People who ( every single one of them ) touched me to my core with their honesty. We laughed, cried, and revealed to one another our deepest longings and fears. Together we discovered the intrinsic, indisputable truth about love : that who we are is exactly what others are looking for, if we would only be brave enough to show ourselves; and that the love we carry is so much more than good enough, it is the very beacon that guides love to us.

The exercises were fun, enlightening, and coached me out of my comfort zone. I learned that all the years of trying to present myself as a desirable woman had been hindering me, and actually kept men from reading my signals the way I hoped they would. I learned that while I thought I was looking for love I was actually hiding from it. The workshop enabled me to not only courageously drop my mask, but to have compassion and understanding for how it came to be the impermeable defense I thought I needed to be ok in the world. And when I did that, I saw finally, the tender, powerful, and reassuring beauty that lies within the vulnerable male and even more poignantly, within myself.

At first before going I was apprehensive about it being coed. By the end, I was thankful that it was and I feel I got way more than if it was just for men. I felt this was like a motivational dating seminar as opposed to just a dating seminar, and it was unlike any other dating seminar I know of. The two day seminar was highly interactive and there was no space to hide in the room, which for me is what I do often. At first I was scared that there was no hiding. By the end, I felt fully self-expressed, empowered and confident. One thing that I wanted to get from the course was more confidence and I totally surprised myself when I got that. I learned that I am sexy, liked by women and that the things I tell myself about myself are simply untrue. I would recommend this to everyone, especially those men and women who find themselves shy and introverted. You will get out of your box during these two most powerful and long days. You will also first-hand learn more about the opposite sex. I am EXTREMELY shy at times, especially approaching women and moving beyond the friend zone and what I also learned is that I really CAN talk to women and have success with getting a date with a woman thanks to this course.

If you want dating advise, go to the library and read a book. The workshop was a weekend immersion that reached way beyond advise, it was an interactive experience that can hone your interpersonal skills. Learning opportunities come from both sexes, as I picked up some helpful tips from other men as well as the women. The facilitators get everyone involved, and hiding out is not an option. Highly recommended.

What I got out of today is that I am clear on my flaws, that they’re not flaws, they’re actually victories for me, and I didn’t see that before. The love that I felt here from the rest of my community allowed me to see that, and I am very thankful.

This weekend you had given me a great gift. You had opened up my eyes to a whole new world a world where “real people” live. I have never been in a room with so much love, and where I trusted and felt safe with complete strangers who then became my family. That was the most amazing gift, I had this gift and was so happy to have received it

I cannot believe I haven’t fallen into a deep sleep after the exhausting day we had today. When I can’t sleep it’s usually because I’m obsessing over what I see as unfinished business. I want you to know how deeply you touched me this weekend. Before I even arrived, I somehow felt deep inside that I would be safe in your hands. You are a truly beautiful man. You helped me to see that I can be attractive and feel sexy and want to be sexy for someone else. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and soul.

What this whole day was, was an exercise in learning how to listen, because I know for a lot of people that can be very difficult, when you’re self conscious and shy. So learning how to listen and learning how to put the focus on the other person is a very good thing; not just for dating but for a lot of things in life. That was the best part of being here for me. Oh, and it was alot of fun!

I loved the progression and how it built up to the big exercise at the end. Once we had done all the other one –on-one exercises and got to really trust the men , I wanted to hear everything they had to share. So I was really drinking that in. It was fascinating for me. To have the opportunity to share myself intimately with these men, and to be validated, that was great!

I think the women here were listening to us, really listening without judging us. I really appreciate that ’cause whatever they’re gonna take home with them, they’re going to know a little more than they had. They’re seeing where we’re coming from, why we are who and what we are, and maybe have a little more equipment to deal with us and say “alright, be that way” and take it from there.

I think the women and the men both really had their eyes open to a lot of similarities and differences. Also, some stories that a lot of us have been living with for a long time and haven’t realized until today how ridiculous they are; and how much they “run us” all the time. You showed us that if we can really just look and see what’s at the source of those stories, then we’ll have much more fulfilling relationships.

I’ve learned to accept myself much more and I’ve actually learned that men want the same things as women. I think once I go out there in “the real world” that I’ll be a totally different person. Even though at first it didn’t seem like something was happening, but I’ve felt the energy change. I believe the men now understand that we are approachable and to just take a risk and whatever happens, happens. It’s not them, it’s only us.

I was really surprised that the guys were in consensus, that in a relationship they wanted the man to “be the man” and the woman to “be the woman.” This was a huge surprise to me. I would not have expected that. Dating “the modern man” or “Metrosexual” as I do, it was just not my experience in this city. I think now it just has so much more to do with the people that I’m choosing as opposed to the people that are actually available. My BIG revelation, I have to say that I’m SO PROUD OF, is the thing that “going on dates is like trying on jeans.” Like who gives a shit if it doesn’t work out? Like, I make all these big stories about it and it has all this meaning like whether I’m a successful person or if I’ll ever find love? That’s a revelation for me. Thanks for getting me there!

I learned that women are more approachable than I thought. I learned that when women are being approached or are approaching, that they are much more self conscious and vulnerable than we are. I guess that’s since we’re used to it, or that’s just the way it’s been stereotypically done.
