I was born with a neuromuscular condition (Charcot Marie Tooth Syndrome) that causes weakness throughout my body, especially in my hands and legs.
As I was growing up, my parents put a singular message in my mind – 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 about 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 very 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.
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.
