John Keegan is New York City’s finest dating coach. Now infamous since profiled in the NY Times, his dating advice regularly appears in Marie Claire and Divine Caroline.
My name is John. I love food that is pure, wine when it’s red, and doing the unexpected. I received my degree in psychology, I have been an actor in commercials, theatre and film, and I have always had a fascination with human behavior and social exploration.
When I first moved to NYC 8 years ago I noticed that, despite the 8 million attractive and interesting people abound, very few were actually connecting on a daily basis.
In a society that allows us to stay more connected than ever in history, we’ve become alarmingly disconnected from one of our core human needs: social interaction and intimate relationships with one another.
While this lack of social and dating abundance has become the “normal” paradigm, it seems nothing could be a greater violation of our true nature. As the philosopher Jiddu Krishnamurti said, “It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.”
So my observation became a mission: to meet, connect and build relationships in more meaningful ways, with new people in every day situations.
I took what I had learned from acting into real world situations. I began to see every interaction as a scene in play. Not by changing my persona, but by altering my perspective, I began to have unique insights into what exactly causes attraction and connection.
With this deeper understanding, my mission became a vision to bring what I had learned to others, to awaken in their own lives the pinnacle of social and spiritual flow. Through collaboration and real-world experience, with programs specifically designed to meet your needs, we work together on a personal level to fulfill your personal vision.
As a dating coach I’ve met amazing men and women with a full spectrum of challenges and aspirations, all of whom have followed these simple principles and strategies to bring authentic presence into their daily lives and create the social and dating lifestyle they desire.
