Put a rocket booster on your love life with this hilarious but informative workshop from Creative Loafing‘s Sex & Relationships columnist Mike Alvear and Atlanta magazine’s Hollis Gillespie.
We’ll tell you exactly what kind of pictures, usernames, headlines and profiles attract hotter, higher quality relationships, and how to navigate the miasma of dating sites to find the one that works best for your goals (dating, marriage, hookup?) In the end, you’ll walk out with a step-by-step plan that will:
*  Light up your email box with messages
*  Get the right date-worthy people  to respond to your emails every time
*  Turn initial interest into a relationship (“Or a hookup!” says Michael.)
And we’ll do all this through Mike’s patented 8 step strategy:
*  Our Rule Of  “Threes Photo Tactic”
*  Special photographic tricks that models use to create desire in readers
*  Get an eye catching screen name
*  Create a must-read headline
*  Build a smokin’ hot profile
*  Write emails that get opened every time
*  How to turn emails into phone calls
*  How to turn a phone call into a meet-up
*  How to make them want you when you meet.
