I have a confession to make: I have done online dating.
Back when I did it the first time in the early 2000s (I call this online dating 1.0) there was major stigma surrounding the whole concept. You wouldn’t talk about it to other people — it wasn’t something considered "normal". I gave up after a few months and some not-so-fun experiences.
Today online dating is an accepted way to meet people, with all kinds of regular guys and girls using dating sites every day (online dating 2.0 — it has become mainstream).
I gave online dating a second shot in the last couple of years and had much better experiences, however, like all forms of dating, it still requires work.
Scott Valdez certainly agrees. He trained himself to become an online dating expert simply because he found it his preferred method to meet people. He realized, as most people who use online dating eventually discover, it might take a few dates to find someone you click with, which takes time and effort.
I won’t spoil the details, you will have to listen to the interview to learn how Scott went from quitting his job while living in Argentina and only a couple of weeks later having to put new clients on to a waiting list because he couldn’t service the demand (and the service costs as much as $1440 a month!).
