About Evan Marc Katz
Billed as a “personal trainer for smart, strong, successful women,” dating coach Evan Marc Katz has been helping singles find love since 2003. Thousands of his clients have fallen in love, gotten married, started families, and found happiness – after only a few months of coaching.
It’s an unlikely career for a man – much less a man who was called a “serial dater” by CNN- yet that’s what makes Katz such a unique coach. By helping women understand men das kennenlernen oder kennen lernen – what they think, how they act, and what they really want – he empowers them to make healthy, informed choices in love.
Katz likens his to a Masters Degree in Men, and the metaphor is apt. His clients invariably find their education about men lessens their frustration and increases their likelihood of attracting a like-minded long-term partner.
Katz started his career in customer care at JDate, during which he wrote his first book, (Ten Speed Press, 2004). Its release coincided with the online dating boom, and soon, Katz found himself in high demand, with features in The Wall St. Journal, USA Today, and Time Magazine.
His follow-up venture, , was the first online dating profile writing service and it made a big splash. Quickly, Katz realized that people needed support in all aspects of dating, and expanded his services into dating and relationship coaching. His second book, (Plume, 2006), was a critical success, yet the dating coach was ignoring the very same advice that was leading his clients to love.
In 2007, Katz decided to take his advice to the masses. He set up a blog, which began to serve as a one-stop shop for anyone trying to understand relationship dynamics. Combining the insight of Dr. Drew and the wit of Adam Carolla, Katz has answered hundreds of challenging and controversial questions with a unique combination of logic, experience, and empathy.
Yet despite all his professional success, Katz remained a bachelor. It wasn’t until he finally followed his own wisdom that he met his future wife – and became a much better dating coach in the process. By opening up to a new kind of partner, Katz proved that to get different results in love, you have to make different choices. He’s very glad he did.
These days, Katz works primarily with the clients with whom he most identifies – smart, strong, successful women who have everything… except for a lasting relationship. With an array of products, group coaching, and private coaching, Katz offers something for any woman who wants to get better results in her love life.
Evan Marc Katz is married and lives in Los Angeles with his incredibly nouveau single de jena lee cool, incredibly patient wife and their two ridiculously cute children.
Evan Marc Katz Success Stories
49-Year-Old 5'3" Man Overcomes Neurological Disease and Discovers His Soulmate
Men seeking a relationship
Tom originally reached out to me in 2006. Attractive, successful, athletic, charming - he had everything going for him. Except his height. At 5'3", Tom had a hard time attracting women online since his divorce. Coincidentally, I'd been talking with CBS Early Show about doing a segment at the time, and, the next thing you know, Tom and I are on TV together. He gets a flurry of attention, dates around a bit, tries a few relationships and is then blindsided as he's diagnosed with a neurological disease like M.S.. Suddenly, the 5'3" accountant can't walk without a walker and extensive rehab. His love life is put on hold.
Tom returns to me a year and a half later; depressed and frustrated at his lot in life. He has so much to give, but no one will give him the time of day. We immediately dive back into coaching, and I'm nearly bubbling over because of the information I want to share with Tom.
See, Tom's weakness was the same as most of our weaknesses - he expected everyone to overlook his deficiencies, but he wouldn't really consider overlooking most women's deficiencies. In other words, the 5'3" guy who can't even walk is rejecting women who are a few years older or a few pounds overweight.
What I pointed out to Tom, as his coach and friend, was that the "10s" in looks were rarely "10s" in personality, kindness, humor, empathy, and integrity. I encouraged him to look at his past for verification of this. His refusal to consider women outside his very narrow definition of attractive was effectively relegating him to a life of solitude. Unless that's what he wanted, something had to give.
It was like a fire was lit under him.
Here is the last email I received from him.
"I just wanted to take this time to say “Thank you” for everything you have done for me. The lady I met on Match when we were engaged in our last coaching session and I have not only turned into a couple, but finally exchanged mutual “I love you’s” this past weekend. To top it all off, we both have gone off of Match and are literally making plans for all the things we desire to do with each other, and that includes a trip to Broadway in December.
Obviously, I understand there are risks inherent in any presumption concerning the future, but the most important thing is the fact your coaching and, particularly, your friendship, was a factor in this development. I’ve never been happier, walking disorder and all. My friend, by the way, embraces me with the disorder and is a real gamer, never uttering a complaint or ill thought during the times when I need a little assistance.
Interestingly, although she is “attractive,” she’s not a “10” by what I suggest may be other people’s standards. As you know, I had been out with quite a few “10’s” and have to say the women who are not “10’s” are just so much more fun to be with, maintain a friendship with and a love that is two ways, as opposed to one, and are much lower on the emotional maintenance side. And for the crème de la crème, my short stature means absolutely nothing to her (the “10’s” are much more judgmental in that regard). I will add our sex life is off the charts (the non 10’s try harder, and that’s great in the bedroom!).
In any event, thanks again for all your guidance. I could go on and on about all we have been through (you and I) and may even be equipped to write a little book on it now (LOL), but I just want to express my sincere and deep gratitude for all you have done for me. That session concerning “wants” and “needs” hit home. I suggest it was no coincidence after I learned that lesson from you my love life took a turn for the best.
Thank you, Ev, I love you man!
P.S. If you ever want a little testimonial, reference, or, especially, have another really short guy looking for some inspiration, you know where to look buddy.
