DESCRIPTION: We’re taught to read, taught to write, but no one teaches us how to find a date, or even better, the love of your life. We just learn that dating is about accidents. If we’re in a room long enough, we hook up. If we’re in a room with alcohol, it happens faster (not recommended). What happens next for most people is headaches, heartaches, and more questions than answers. That’s where New York Times bestselling author, nationally syndicated advice columnist, and relationship expert, Harlan Cohen steps in and answers the call. Harlan has cracked the code on dating and relationships and shares the secret truth. Harlan helps people find love, make their relationships better, or find someone better (we call this upgrading) using his five-step approach.
Harlan takes the best from his most recent book, Getting Naked: Five Steps to Finding The Love of Your Life (While Fully Clothed and Totally Sober) to crack the code on dating and relationships. This interactive event is hilarious, bold, and life changing. Harlan addresses dating, relationships, consent, healthy relationships, and the role of alcohol on campus. Audience members are encouraged to bring cells phones to text Harlan questions live during the event. Attendees will leave with a fresh perspective and new approach to finding happiness in love (and life). Harlan empowers men and women to set boundaries, say what they think, do what they feel, and never look back. Results are guaranteed. It’s how Harlan met his wife. Every show is a one-of-a-kind event. Harlan crafts each show to fit the needs of the community he’s addressing. This fast-paced, unpredictable, and entertaining event is part speaking, part live music, part audience participation and 100 percent fully clothed.
