My hands-on research has proven time and again that men are like adorable wild things.
They startle easily when you make fast moves. They’ll often get very, very close to you and suddenly fly away again. When threatened with long-term commitments, they often become hostile or passive-aggressive, and flee in an attempt to resist (emotional) arrest.
The Problem: The modern ‘date-scape’ has radically changed, and modern male courtship behaviors are radically different than they were just 5 years ago.
And that’s why you need a highly effective Man Plan!
You’ll get powerful tools, like:
Man Facts that explain men’s COURTSHIP BEHAVIOR at every dating stage, and what that behavior MEANS.
Flirt Tips that create MAGNETIC ATTRACTION.
Manhandling Maneuvers that allow men to deeply PAIR BOND with you from the very first date.

Question: Why are you still single?
You probably have some interesting theories about this. You might think you’re still single because of your age, your looks, or the size of your thighs.
Or you might be one of those gals with bad luck, who’ve fallen for flawed men who goofed around or cheated, or disappointed you, and wasted your precious time.
The good news: You don’t need extensive therapy or a leaner figure to ‘get flocked’ with suitors, you just need improved and up-to-date romantic technology.

The information you’re about to receive is the most empowering, yet thoroughly feminine and effective approach to dating out there. It’ll give you specific step-by-step instructions to SPOT and attract a Lovebird, dodge the dirty birds, (unless you really want one!) and inspire men to not only fall madly in love with you, but actually step up and MARRY you.
Here are some of the common complaints I hear from women who are still single, and how to solve these annoying problems with the help of my book:
“I’m too busy/fat/old to date, and besides, men don’t ask me out.”
As a love coach to thousands of women around the globe, I know how difficult dating can be.
If you’re still using antiquated come-hither techniques that were in vogue sometime around the invention of the maxi pad, you’re at a HUGE dating disadvantage, no matter what size your bottom is. And for those of you who can’t seem to get asked out, here’s a…
NEWSFLASH: You can literally meet a zillion suitors- online AND offline. You just need to know HOW.
Now to be fair, Dot.com men are sometimes slightly irregular, and the merchandise is often totally mislabeled. They might say that it’s an XL when it’s actually quite small! Or an old coot might try to pass himself off as a jaunty young stud until you meet the fiendish fibber in person.
That’s why any woman who’s serious about flirting should learn how to proactively flirt with men in her physical space, as well as in cyberspace.

Praise for Dating Mating and Manhandling
The Ornithological Guide to Men:
I actually came into Lauren with a lot of trauma; really confused and kind of scared of men.
And really had even forgotten how to communicate with them and understand what their actions meant. All of that is gone. I really get them now. I really understand how to protect myself, in a way, which has made it fun again. The real deal. All of it is extremely transformative because all the information is now instantly at my fingertips.
You are quite amazing! our humor, as well as your honest, caring candor were refreshing in today’s jaded environment. Additionally, you brought real clarity to many of my “man issues” that had been overlooked in the past.
Just to let you know, you are all that. Oh how you are sent from above! I set up my Match account today and the world exploded. I have an avalanche of responses from Match. You are truly the Michelangelo of love! I need a secretary for my inbox! Thanks for the online input… My profile has caused the perfect storm.
Your Man Magnet Makeover was an amazing experience on so many different levels. I came to you, a 66-year old widow of six years, locked in a time warp that was not serving me. You met the challenge with a power to be reckoned with starting out by turning my silver hair blond and converting my “safe” hair cut into a cute, sassy do. Then came the Spanx and sexy dresses I would have never considered wearing.
I had been involved in an on/off relationship for 3 years with a man who couldn’t make a commitment of marriage – or even come close to it! Now, thanks to Lauren’s great advice and guidance I’m dating 6 (yes – six!) new men after the final breakup with my commitment-phobic male. (If only he knew…) and I am sticking to the Romantic Researchers Oath: To fly at the apex of a flock of suitors, until one of them tells me that he’s The One, and I truly know it in my heart, too! Thanks so much Lauren. Many blessings to you!
The Man Magnet weekend opened me up totally. It gave me an ease with myself and an ease with my body. Afterwards, I began wearing form-fitted clothing. It certainly was not the clothing, but the confidence and “owning it” that had me attract and hold onto Dale. He was the “hot stuff, bad boy” from high school (30 years ago). … My family can’t believe that their Manhattan Gal is being transformed into a Country Girl. It is amazing what love does to you.

Lauren Frances helped me to take the necessary steps to find true happiness in my relationship.
Whether those steps are to end a relationship or taking your existing relationship to a new level, Lauren Frances can take you there.
– Slade Smiley
My confidence level and my overall understanding of the male species is on a completely different level. … The support that I’ve gotten from you Lauren, being a part of this process, knowing that I’ve got high level support, and have somewhere to go to get real answers, and somebody to help me see my blind spots, is amazing. Lauren and I were talking last week and she said, “You’re finally not traumatized.” And it’s true. I feel like I’ve finally healed those old wounds.
Two years ago, Lauren came into my life at the most perfect time. I was casually dating the wrong men who were “in the meantime” guys. … I did the emotional clearing work she suggested and followed Lauren’s Man Plan. Then BANG! I met him. David and I had our first date the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Six months later, we were engaged and were married nine months after that. Today we have a beautiful little girl named Grace. I’m so grateful I took her advice. I shiver at the thought of ‘What if I hadn’t?’ Well, there would be no David and definitely…. no Grace in my life!
