Hi! My name is Amin (pronounced uh-mean). 

I was born with Muscular Dystrophy (specifically, Charcot-Marie-Tooth Syndrome, type 1B) which causes my muscles to atrophy over time, especially in my hands and legs.

My speech from Bellevue City Hall – about my struggle to connect with others, how I overcame it, and why I decided to become a dating coach.

As I was growing up, my parents gave me a very specific message – Amin, you will not be able to perform physical labor, so you have to study hard and work hard if you want to succeed in life.

And so I did. I was pretty much a straight-A student, I graduated 2nd in my high school class of 700 students, I graduated from an Ivy League University with 2 degrees in 4 years, and I landed my dream job at Microsoft. By all metrics of external success, I was killing it.

But internally, I was desolate. I had few friends, and I had never been on a date. I spent most of my time working, or watching TV by myself.

And I knew that there had to be more to life. I knew that I wanted those friends that would always have my back. I knew that I craved intimacy with women. I knew that I wanted to get rid of that nervous feeling that I felt every time I was around people.

I finally mustered the courage to ask a girl to hang out, and the stars seemed to be aligned, because she said yes. I thought she was the love of my life, but after our first, incredibly awkward kiss, she told me "I don't know how any woman could be attracted to a guy in a wheelchair." And that was my absolute rock-bottom.

So what did I do? I went to remedial classes, of course. And for me, that meant hiring a dating coach. Have you seen the movie Hitch? It was very much like that.

So five years and $25,000 later, here I am. And honestly, sometimes I’m STILL nervous around people. BUT I’ve learned a few things. 

I've learned how to form meaningful connections with people. I've learned how to feel confident. And I've learned how to flirt with women that I'm interested in.

And my life has totally transformed.

Now, people describe me as charismatic, confident, and unforgettable. I make friends everywhere I go, and I've been on dates with over 40 women, of all different backgrounds, ethnicities, and even ages (from 19 to over 50). I've enjoyed sex, intimacy with girlfriends, and I've even fallen in love.

If I can do it, you can too. and I'm here to help you get there faster than I did.
