Steve Nakamoto, a relationship and dating expert, believes that women can take charge of their own love destiny and attract a man of their dreams through a series of 21 logical action steps. For starters, he states that women must love themselves first, find and fix any personal blind spots, and get rid of negative emotional baggage from the past.
“Once a woman has taken care of [these] prerequisites, she can begin moving forward in her search for the right man and the right situation,” claims Nakamoto. He continues, “In this next stage, some smart dating moves include:
1) Making herself attractive to men,
2) Avoiding losing love candidates,
3) Staying clear of low-percentage relationship situations,
4) Acquiring vital people skills,
5) Mastering the art of small talk,
6) Meeting men naturally through worthwhile activities or networks of friends.
7) Dealing effectively with dating competition
Nakamoto’s experience, as the expert online dating/relationship advisor for iVillage.com’s “Ask Mr. Answer Man” discussion board, leads him to believe that both men and women are frustrated in their search for the “one.” He explains, “We all want a love relationship with mutually high romantic chemistry, emotional maturity, and compatibility. But each gender tends to have its own unique challenges.”
For example, Nakamoto says, “Men seem to have more problems in maintaining high romantic chemistry with the women they fall for.” On the other hand, Nakamoto claims that women have more self-esteem issues than men and have an uncanny way of putting extra pressure on succeeding in their love relationships. “It seems like men and women will often be out of rapport with each other because the woman needs a love relationship for fulfilling a wider variety of emotional needs. Many men, on the other hand, want love more for the simple pleasures that being with a woman provides him. A man can often get his other emotional human needs filled through his career, friends, and individual hobbies or sports,” he adds.
Mr. Nakamoto, a Writers’ Digest award-winning author, presents the 21 most critical moves that women can make in transforming their love lives in his recently published book, Dating Rocks! (ISBN:0967089344, Java Books, January 2006). His 240 page dating manifesto outlines everything a woman should do to find, date, and keep a good man. Nakamoto is not new to the “how to catch a man” arena. His previous book, "Men Are like Fish: What Every Woman Needs to Know about Catching a Man," captured a funny, yet intelligent look at the dating scene with tips on how an enlightened female “angler” can get a man to fall in love with her…hook, line, and sinker.
