Wait Or Create – A Reader’s Story #2

In the last couple of days I was sent this story by one of our newsletter subscribers, and I had to share it with you. This is a true example of someone who:

a) Is willing to get proactive, and
b) Has the right peer group around them.

I hope reading this will inspire you to go out there and take big steps in your own love life.

From Stephanie:

Hi Matthew,

Just had to tell you and your team about this – I’m a Brit living in
New York and a few weeks ago one of my fellow brits living in the UK
who travels to NY a lot was telling us all about your weekend seminar
and retreat that she attended. We were so interested the next time she
came over (which was yesterday) we arranged our own brunch and got
together with our brit friend and your new book.

The aim of the brunch was to have a “focus day” to introduce ourselves
to “Get the Guy” (we had fun pretending it was a “corporate training
away day” with a fake agenda etc., it was hilarious). We had a great
girly open discussion about our fears and aspirations with dating and
our friend referred to some of your techniques in the book. We were
“focused”, sober and ready to take action.

This is why I’m writing to you because we couldn’t believe how quickly
things happened – and we know you’d love the “feedback” from our
“focus day”, lol!

A couple of us went to the bathroom (for champagne and a chat – very
NY, lol) and one friend was left at the bar waiting for us – she used
the “mobile phone” tip and when I went to find her, she was surrounded
by 3 guys chatting away. I couldn’t believe it! So the rest of us
joined her and we were introduced to another two guys who had just met
at the bar – this was hilarious – we hadn’t even left the restaurant
and 5 women were with 5 guys, chatting, engaging, being invited to the
theatre next door that night because one of them was the director etc.

As we were on a “focus day” , we made our polite excuses and left to
the next venue – a huge bar full of guys! Within minutes, we were onto
our next task “ask a guy a question” at the bar – so one of us said
“hi, we’ve just had brunch and we don’t know what to drink next, what
would you recommend?”. This led to a hilarious exchange and guy was so
happy he wanted to buy us the drink, in his words “you are a lovely
group of ladies”! The guy sitting next to him who was a stranger
joined in and again, we had another great exchange. Total result.

We moved onto the next venue and walked in to a place with about 15
gorgeous, well dressed guys in a pack – this was quite a challenge,
all that testosterone together in one room, ugh – these were the “good
looking” guys that we wouldn’t ordinarily approach, especially in a
pack – this was a classic situation! We were on such a role, the
adrenaline was pumping and at one point we got a bit hysterical and
had to calm down, it was so funny. When we “re-focused”, we started
the strategy of slowly breaking up the group and sure enough, we got
talking to them. A couple of the guys turned out to be rather
unpleasant on this occasion which was a little unfortunate so we made
a polite exit and left – but it was still a total result!

Undeterred we went onto our final venue which we couldn’t get into so
we decided to go for a “calm down” drink – this was 11 hours later so
we’d done pretty well – and we were still sober, lol!

As we reflected on the 12 hour extended focus day, we just couldn’t
believe what had happened. Our mindset had totally shifted and now we
all feel we can go out and put everything we’ve learned into practice
on our own. We’re going skiing next weekend and we’re taking your
book with us, lol! In fact, we’re all going to buy it – we can’t wait
until April!

coffee shop and get started… lol!
