wow so there are definitely a lot of haters on here.
I am sorry if I wasn’t clear but I am not looking for your validation for whether this is a good idea or not. There are many men out there who struggle with coming up with ideas for their proposal and are stressed out and overwhelmed by it. I don’t think they are lazy as some of you percieve them to be, rather they want to do something amazing but don’t even know where to start as this often isn’t something that comes naturally to them. And the fact that they would be willing to go to such lengths as to work with someone to make sure it’s something incredibly special for them should be applauded and not denegrated as lazy.
That goes the same for planning something romantic and special for their partner. The fact that some of you don’t seem to recognize this shows how little you know about men (according to both my fiancé and many many men whom I’ve spoken with).
Also, the fact that you expect your boyfriend/fiance/husband to be consistently amazing at romance over a period of many years, without a nudge in the right direction, is perhaps naive. We are not in any way claiming that romance is the only thing needed for a successful relationship. We are simply offering to help men (or women) who struggle with that aspect of their relationship to be able to express it in the most impactful way possible.
As an aside, I already mentioned that we only just started this business so no, we couldn’t tell you of our success with it as of yet. But we can tell you that it evidently isn’t an unheard of idea as it has been done, quite successfully, by others before us.
Some of the things that some of you wrote were frankly rather rude and show very little understanding for the profession of coaching.
That’s fine, and I don’t expect everyone to fully understand coaching as a discipline… however, I would ask that you do not try to give expert advice on a subject that you know very little about.
Coaching is a valid profession, whether you understand the nuances of it or not, that is not my concern, but it is disrespectful to belittle someone on their chosen career when you don’t know, understand or have done the work to experience it’s benefits.
And I should note, I have in fact studied psychology at university as well. While I don’t think this is necessarily pertinent information to my credentials, I am very familiar with the discipline.
In my 4.5 years of coaching I have helped clients to more than double their income, successfully start their own business, create loving healthy relationships, and for some, save their marriages. I am not seeking your validation for my skills, the results my clients get speak for themselves…
You are also very specifically deciding that I am aiming coaching services at married couples where as that is never stated. I simply aim to support people on having the best relationship they can and empower them to feel they can communicate effectively and be vulnerably themselves without needing to mold themselves into something they are not. This is a valuable service whether you are single, in a relationship, engaged, or married. Just because you have never experienced it for yourself, doesn’t mean it doesn’t provide significant value.
Ultimately, I was simply asking you for name ideas for our new business. Please be cognisant of not offending others with your narrow minded opinion.
For those who gave constructive feedback, thank you so much, I really appreciate that.
