It’s Emyli here, America’s Online Dating Coach. When I was in school I studied politics. My favorite class was Campaign Strategy with Dan Schnur.
In class we read a terrific book called Hardball: How Politics Is Played By One Who Knows The Game.
In this book, Chris Matthews shares valuable lessons that apply, not just to politics, but also to dating. One of them is a common saying called “hang a lantern.”
To “hang a lantern” is a political tactic used by a candidate to reveal a major weakness up front, before his opponent has the opportunity to use it against him.
You might call it one of the best pre-emptive ploys in avoiding unnecessary recon.
So how does it work in dating?
I’ll show you…
Now I wanna hear from you…how did my video help you? Tell me about a time when you recently used my dating confidence strategies to your benefit…
