Jonathan Bennett

Author Since July 2014

When he was a high school teacher, Jonathan began to question why some people were successful in social situations (dating, friendship, etc.) and others failed miserably.

This spurred him to study successful, attractive, popular men to see which traits and actions set them apart from the rest of the population.

He has devoted years of research to studying the “science” of attraction (including such areas as neuroscience, evolutionary biology, and psychology) and eventually started creating practical, simple tips, based on his studies. He and friends and family members tried them out and were amazed at the success.

The information was so life changing that he felt he needed to share it with the world.

He operates in the Columbus, Ohio metro area, helping men (and women) become more confident and attractive through consulting, public speaking, classes, and writing. Some topics he speaks on are “Why Women Like Jerks,” “Surefire Signs A Girl (Or Guy) Is Into You,” and “How to Escape The Friend Zone.” He proudly partners with Affinity Matchmaking, the largest matchmaking service in Columbus.

He has a Bachelor’s degree from Ohio University and a Master’s degree from Emory University. He is a certified counselor in Ohio, administrator at a counseling facility, business owner, and part-time professor. He is the author of six non-fiction books and regularly contributes articles to several websites.

His work has been referenced by The BBC, New York Times, and Huffington Post. He has appeared regularly on radio and television, including WBNS 10TV in Columbus. His primary hobby is fitness related activities and he loves running extreme races like the Tough Mudder.
