In a world full of social media picture perfect models and influencers, window shopping for a mans dream girl is ever present. But how do men even get the confidence to approach, let alone date one of these goddesses? One man’s unparalleled insight can lead them to salvation. Best described as a cross between Hitch and Tony Robbins, dating coach Connell Barrett has helped over 1,000 clients from across the globe achieve their goals with one simple philosophy: with enough dedication and “radical authenticity,” any guy can be attractive. It isn’t about looks, height, money, or pick up lines. At a basic level, it is about being open, honest, and vulnerable. “As people, we crave authenticity. It’s hard-wired into us,” said Connell, “We want to express our authentic selves, and we want to receive authentic energy from others.
Though he is now regarded as a dating expert, in his earlier years Connell was no stranger to living the single life and consistently getting place in that dreaded friend zone. At his lowest point, he was even dumped by his ex wife just nine weeks after they married. It wasn’t until he was in his late twenties when everything started to click. “I had a coach guiding me, and he suggested a unique approach: tell the the truth. Be honest, vulnerable… And the crazy thing was, by owning my nervousness, I came across as confident and attractive. My lack of smoothness was somehow… smooth.”
This career-defining revelation set the foundation for what separates Connell from other experts in his field whose strategies too often include cheesy pick up lines and mental manipulation. “Compare my philosophy to the book the game. Look at some chapter titles: ‘Isolate the Target.’ ‘Extract to a Seduction Location.’ ‘Blast Last-Minute Resistance.’ Guys still teach that toxic, outdated mindset.” These techniques are usually associated with “pick up artistry” with the goal mainly just to sleep with as many women as possible. With Connells programme the end result is different. The aim is to create a lasting connection with the women you want to date and dream to date, the 8’s, 9’s and 10’s of this world become a reality.
From his late twenties onward, Connell’s life was transformed, and he found his passion for helping men who struggle in the same way he once did, not only by improving their approach to dating, but also by revitalizing their sense of self worth as a whole. “My clients grow as men. They reconnect with who they are at their core.” Inasmuch as he values authentic self respect, Connell stresses the importance of integrity and respect for women. “Women are not ‘targets.’ They’re people. You don’t blast through ‘resistance.’ You connect in a genuine way. Success with women is about connection, not conquering… Misogynists need not apply.” With a goal to one day transform a million men’s lives, Connell offers a 30-day program with live, in-person training as well as an 8-week online program that works anywhere, anytime. One previous client had this to say: “I went from barely being able to make eye contact to connecting with a cool, cute girl from Texas.”
