Today’s guest is dating coach Blaine Anderson, also known as @datingbyblaine on social media. And as you know, dating could be quite challenging in the online and offline world that we live in today and I was highly impressed with Blaine’s direct and no nonsense advice on social media. I personally have gotten a lot of value out of her content and I think you are going to learn a ton in this conversation. And while Blaine, specifically coaches men, we get into both  perspectives in our discussion, so I know you’ll enjoy it whether you are male or a female. So get your pen and paper ready as you tune into this dating master class.
