I’m Thinking Of Offering A Class… Input Needed
Two days ago I was sitting at my favorite wine bar talking to the owner, Michael, about Game, women, hypergamy, online dating and other subjects near and dear to my heart. Michael and I go back about seven years and I consider him a friend and source of wisdom. He’s in his mid-50s, never married, no kids, and currently single but dates ruthlessly. After we were talking for awhile, he said, “You should offer a class in this stuff.”
I’m a former teacher, computer trainer, and presenter. Hell, I’ve even done a bit of stand up and improvisational comedy through classes I took a few years ago. Frankly I love teaching and being in front of a crowd.
“Interesting idea” I replied.
“You could market it through Groupon or Living Social.” Michael knows about marketing and promoting because he does it for his wine shop/bar.
“I’ll give that idea some thought.”
Yesterday, I was back over at the wine bar and asked Michael if I could do the classes there. He told me that he often rents out his place for the night so that companies and organizations can do presentations. He also told me that he has a screen for PowerPoint stacks and can shift his wine racks to accompany up to 40 people at a time. Finally, he offered wine as part of the cost of the class because a class there would generate future business for him.
Now things are getting promising and exciting.
All last night I was thinking about how to do this class and what to present in a 90 minute span of time.
My preliminary thoughts:
Target audience: Men over 45 (how to keep the women out of the class so as not to have the possibility of disruption?)
Class length: 90 minutes with a break for smokes, talk, and wine.
Time: 7:30PM to 9:00PM on a weeknight
Location: Michaels’s wine bar (of course) in the Fort Lauderdale area
Class Name: Meeting Women Successfully – For Men Over 45
Cost: Haven’t a clue
Marketing: Groupon, Living Social, word of mouth (anything that’s free)
1. What you will learn (and what not) and warnings about being politically incorrect
2. My credentials and bona fides.
3. About women
A. What they want (confidence, security, social value)
B. The social expectation and the biological imperative (feminism, female independence, hypergamy!)
C. The rationalization hamster (aspirational lying, “never settle”, etc.)
4. Being the man women are attracted to (overview on looking and sounding confident)
A. Appearance (clothes, fitness, grooming, etc.)
B. Possessions (home, car, toys, etc.)
C. Presence (conversation, posture, voice, lifestyle etc.)
D. Social Skills (breaking bad habits, how to practice, etc.)
5. Meeting women
A. Day Game (openings, IOIs, conversation, closing etc)
B. Online Dating (profiles and process)
C. Singles groups and events
D. Other venues (dance classes, civic organizations, set up from friends, etc.)
6. Dating (when, where, how, tips, what not to do, etc.)
7. Long term relationships and marriage…shudder (provide a link to Athol)
8. Further resources (Manosphere links)
9. Questions and answers
So, what I have I missed and what would you recommend I change?
The point of the class is to give men solid information that they can actually use to successfully meet women. I’m also limited to 90 minutes but if it’s going well, it could go longer.
If this does really well, I will offer the classes on a regular basis and maybe offer advance classes. If it makes good money, I will be happy to donate to the big Manosphere blogs.
