Attraction Through Honesty - World Renown Dating Coach Mark Manson Speaks!

Mark Manson Returns To Boston For One Night Only!

World renown dating coach, professional blogger and two times author Mark Manson will be giving a talk on his unique take on the dating game and meeting your perfect match.


Attraction Through Honesty

Since 2007, Mark has traveled around the world speaking and helping thousands of men and women with their dating issues. His first book, Models: Attract Women Through Honesty, has sold thousands of copies worldwide and garnered dozens of perfect reviews without the benefit of any media publicity or major publisher. His second book, Escape Plan, a guide to traveling the globe, has done even better.

Mark himself is a graduate of Boston University. He’s been traveling the world for the past four years and has visited almost 50 countries. He speaks three languages and a little bit of a fourth. He is currently living in Sao Paulo, Brazil with his girlfriend.

In his book Models, he promotes a kind of communication between men and women that defies the default relationship logic ingrained in us since childhood that ultimately dooms us to failure. Mark's perspective on dating argues that trying to impress others and "win" over a new partner is ultimately self-defeating, and that we should use the knowledge of our emotional needs and personalities to find suitable partners.


The talk will include discussions on:

- Vulnerability and why it's the key to attraction.

- How to discover if you're being needy or not and how this is sabotaging your relationships.

- How to express yourself more openly without turning people off or upsetting others.

- How to cope with the anxiety and over-thinking that often accompanies dating.

- Why men are "jerks" and women are "crazy", and how to stop the cycle.

- Neediness and how it infiltrates all dysfunctional relationships.

- Why honesty is sexy and is always a winning strategy in the long-term.

- Sexual shame and how it permeates our culture; how to get rid of it.

- Living the relationship you want instead of chasing it.

- And much more...

You can read some of Mark's articles on his blog,, which has over 150,000 readers and hundreds of articles on dating. A good article for women is Can Women Make The First Move and a good article for men is Why It's So Hard.

    Good idea Sashi. There's a great place nearby called The Burren. Anyone wanting to hang out afterwards can meet up there. You can see it on the map half way between the Dilboy and Davis Station. If you are interested in hanging out, reply to this comment so I can get a handle on how many would like to come.
