Hi everyone, this is Coach Colt from DatingArmory.com and I'm super excited to share with you my story of how I went from being a lonely, depressed and hopeless guy to a confident, happy and successful dating coach.
I hope that by reading this, you will get inspired and motivated to take action and improve your own dating life, no matter what your background or orientation is.
I was born in a religious community, where everyone knew each other and followed the same strict religious rules. My family was one of the largest in the community, with nine kids!
My parents were also very abusive and neglectful, constantly yelling at us, hitting us, and throwing us out of the house for the smallest reasons. They never showed us any love or affection, only anger and resentment.
I was the forth child and the most sensitive one. I always felt like I didn't belong in my family or in my town. I was different from everyone else. I was shy, quiet, and introverted. I had no friends at school or in the neighborhood. I was bullied and teased for being weak, weird, and ugly. I hated myself and wished I could disappear.
To make things worse, I realized at a young age that I was bisexual. I felt attracted to both boys and girls, but I knew that was a sin in my community. I tried to suppress my feelings and pray them away, but they never went away. They only made me more confused and guilty. I lived in fear of being found out and rejected by everyone.
I had no hope for the future. I thought I would never escape from my miserable life. I thought I would never find love or happiness. I thought I would die alone and unloved.
But everything changed when I turned 18.
I decided to take a leap of faith and leave my home town. I packed my bags and took a bus to the nearest big city. I didn't have any plan or any money, but I had a burning desire to start over and live a better life.
I found a cheap studio apartment and got two jobs as a janitor and a painter. It was hard work, but it was better than living with my abusive family. I also started to study personal development books and videos online. I learned about self-esteem, confidence, communication, body language, social skills, dating skills, and more. I realized that I had the power to change myself and my reality.
I decided to apply what I learned in real life. I started to approach women on the street, in cafes, in bars, anywhere.
I learned how to be more friendly, charming, funny, and flirty. I learned how to handle rejection and overcome fear.
I learned how to create attraction and connection with women.
I also started to explore my sexuality more openly. I joined online dating apps and met men who were also bisexual or gay. I learned how to be comfortable with my orientation and express it authentically. I learned how to date men who respected me and cared for me.
I also started to take care of my physical appearance more. I went to the gym regularly and lifted weights. I changed my diet and ate healthier foods.
I improved my style and bought nicer clothes. I groomed myself better and got a haircut.
It took me four years of consistent effort and action to transform myself completely. But it was worth it. Today, I'm a totally different person than who I was before. I'm confident, happy, and successful. I have a lot of friends who support me and love me for who I am. I have a lot of dates with beautiful women and men who admire me and want me. And most importantly, I have a lot of self-love and self-respect.
I'm not saying this to brag or boast. I'm saying this to show you that anything is possible if you believe in yourself and take action. You don't have to settle for less than what you deserve. You don't have to let your past define you or limit you. You don't have to hide your true self or conform to others' expectations.
You can be whoever you want to be and date whoever you want to date.
