  1. I’m good at my job, why can’t I find love?
  2. Natural inclination is to oppose our own beliefs on the opposite sex.
  3. Challenge the mindset and embrace accurate thinking. Embrace social science thinking.
  4. Negative relationship thoughts, ask yourself is it true? Thoughts, beliefs, and ideas…are they true?
  5. What is science saying:
    • Putting effort into finding and keeping love is worth while.
    • Marriage crates happiness twice as much as single people.
    • Men and women having the exact same dating mindset. Not the case in building love and relationships.
    • Men live their life in hierarchy, they want someone that they can feel proud of!
    • Men simultaneously are thinking about Ms. Right Now and Ms. Right Forever
