It’s more about how to understand women and less “personal development” advice. Can a lonely, single guy really improve his “game” with women, simply by reading an ebook?David De Angelo, real name Eben Pagan, is the man behind “Double Your Dating” – a series of informational products on how to single men become masters of seduction. Yes, we were prepared to like this one, and wanted to give it a 0 / 5 on our snake-oil scam scale. Eben Pagan is a well known internet marketer who calls himself “the guru entrepreneur.” He makes millions of dollars selling info-products like Double Your Dating. This guy is admittedly one of the very best at sneaky marketing tricks so people pull out their wallets.
We hoped this wasn’t the case, and hoped Eben actually made a quality product.
Because it’s one thing to be able to manipulate people for money with a junk product, and quite another to manipulate people and actually sell them something worthwhile. In order to test “Double Your Dating”, as well as a few other David De Angelo products, we devised a panel of 5 single men, aged 20 to 46. Finding single men on the internet is like finding seaweed in the ocean. (Most of these men were recruited from online forums.) Here is our test panel.
We really wanted to like “Double Your Dating,” because we believe one of the big sociological problems of our age is that the sexes can’t understand each other. He is also behind Christian Carter’s basically a version of “David De Angelo” for females. He gives lectures on how to manipulate people to make millions, basically by making any product seem premium and worth buying even when it’s not.
Here is Eben Pagan – I mean, “David De Angelo” – talking about how he uses human psychology to manipulate people for greater sales: So “David De Angelo” is really just a damn good direct marketer, preying on single guys’ desperation with a downright scam?
They were candid – and gave us a lot of information. – A lot of what he promises just isn’t in the book…
So is David De Angelo’s “Double Your Dating” a scam or not? It’s a classic case of over-promising, under-delivering.
He recently got married in 2011 and no longer runs or develops new seminars and products for Double Your Dating.
While David De Angelo is mostly known for his e Book "Double Your Dating," he has developed several other products which include Interviews with Dating Gurus where he interviews various other dating coaches, as well as programs on advanced dating techniques and triggering sexual attraction.
And different men have different styles and strengths.
