Female dating coaches are a dime a dozen, and although many of them give fabulous advice, there’s something refreshing about receiving advice and feedback from a guy. Besides, who knows men better than men themselves? Combine gender with strong communication skills and an understanding of women and you’ve got a male dating coach. Whether they have assigned themselves this title or not, we all have those guy friends that give straight forward, hard to hear (sometimes), informative advice…and we can’t get enough.
As far as professionals go, here are the top 3 male dating coaches that know you’re doing wrong when it comes to dating men.

Best Advice – “Identify and leave the undesirable ones, attract and keep the good ones”
I met Evan several years ago at an Online Dating conference. I can tell you from first hand experience, that Evan has a passion for helping single women maneuver the dating process with the goal of finding the man of their dreams. His advice attempts to figure out which bad habits and mistakes women continue to make that are preventing them from finding love. Evan is also a big believer of online dating sites. Evan himself was single for 10 years and went on over 300 dates via online dating sites before he met his wife. Having been single for so many years and finally finding his happily ever after, he can speak from a place of understanding and experience. Evan’s TED talk advising women how to avoid bad dates in the future is a must watch.
Matt Hussey – Get the Guy
Best advice: ‘There is nothing sexier than a woman who doesn’t care whether someone likes her or not.’
Matt Hussey is a Dating Expert, radio show host and regular guest on the Today Show. He also holds seminars across North America teaching women how to get the guy.
I first came across Matt Hussey in a recent Today show segment where he told women why playing hard to get doesn’t work, and that women can in fact make the first move successfully with a bit of flirting and nonchalantness. Matt’s advice is personal and practical. He doesn’t just tell you what to do, he tells you how to do it; from how to get a guy to approach you, to how to write a text that lets him know what you want, to the one phrase you need to say to get him interested. Most of his advice is rooted in his own experiences of singlehood and not having the know-how or confidence to score the girl. Sounds like he may not have always been the stud he is today.
His recent book Get the Guy is a call to action to single women – take the initiative to meet men! Matt doesn’t believe that women should ever ‘play hard to get’, he believes women should actually be hard to get. Meaning, that women need to be confident, independent and live a fulfilled life before they will successfully ‘get the guy’.
Steve Harvey – Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man
Best Advice: “Signal to a man that you are not someone to be used and discarded. This tells him that what you have – your benefits – are special, and that you need time to get to know him and his ways to decide if he DESERVES them.”
Steve Harvey is a Comedian, talk show host, radio host, entrepreneurs and author. Despite his many talents, the common thread throughout all of his projects, shows and businesses, is his passion for empowering women to find love. Steve believes that women have stopped setting the bar high enough, and are lowering their standards because they want men to like them and accept them. As the title of his book ‘Act like a Lady, Think like a Man’ suggests, Steve believes women should be setting the pace of the relationship. Steve recommends being assertive from the beginning by saying something like ‘Look, if you want to be with me, this is what you got to do. This is what it takes to get to me.'” When it comes to what a man needs in a relationship, Steve chalks it up to 3 simple things: support, loyalty and sex. He needs to know that no matter what you support him and his endeavours, you are loyal to him, and you will provide him with his ‘cookie’, as Steve calls it.
