Watching “confidence dating coach” Adam LoDolce approach a woman in the park is like watching David Ortiz step into the batter’s box.

“Here, let’s do this one…” he said as we approached a beautiful blonde walking near the Swan Boats on Boston Common. “Excuse me, I just saw you walking by, and I just need to tell you that I think you are absolutely gorgeous,” he said. As I fell back into “creepy friend” viewing position, the blonde smiled and thanked Adam for the compliment. He continued, “And I would literally have gone home and kicked myself in the face if I hadn’t just come up and introduced myself.  My name is Adam.”

Around this time I noticed that LoDolce’s body language and confident speaking voice had not only grabbed the attention of the young lady, but a crowd had actually started to form around them. The people in the park wanted to find out how this meeting was going to end, many of them not even pretending not to listen in. A minute later it was all over. Adam hugged the girl goodbye and rejoined me on our walk, showing me her phone number. I was nearly speechless, mustering something along the lines of, “So are you going to call her?”

For LoDolce, 27, meeting women wasn’t always so easy. “In college I really struggled to meet women, I went to a school with a high ratio of men to women and I just didn’t connect with the women there. When I got out of college I decided to really focus on that part of my life,” he said.

Four years later, LoDolce is considered one of the top dating coaches in the Northeast. He is not only a coach, but also an author and public speaker. Colleges and universities will often hire him to speak to students about how they can improve their social lives. “I recently spoke to 1,200 sorority girls in Virginia. A room full of 1,200 Southern bells is intense.”

You’re probably wondering, “What kind of nerd hires someone to teach them how to meet women?” You might be surprised. “When I started I thought I would only be working with nerdy, unattractive guys who had never had luck with women," said LoDolce. "That profile could not be more off. I realized the type of guys who are coming to me for advice are the type of people who are open to receiving feedback and they feel like I can get them to the next level.” LoDolce also sees female clients, but the ladies’ goals are much different. “For women the problem isn’t meeting a lot of men. The problem is meeting the right kind of men – higher quality guys.”

Although LoDolce charges a premium price for his coaching, it appears that he gets the most satisfaction from helping men and women meet, date and sometimes even marry the partner of their dreams. When I asked how he felt about me posting his opening line from the park on, he said I could, but under one condition. “Make sure you say not use that line at night. I can’t have guys going out and using that line at night because it will be wildly ineffective.”

Thanks for the tip.

For the best nighttime openers, you’ll have to contact Adam yourself.
