Frequently Asked Questions

In the short-term, if you put into practice what you learn – yes.

In the long-term, if you reach a certain level you will never lose it. I believe it takes 3 months to get there. Note that our longest course is 5 weeks, so it will involve some growth on your own. 

If you really want to improve your dating life and social abilities, and you’re willing to put in the work, follow our instruction, then this will absolutely help you. 

We do not promise any BS. No“pick up models in 20 minutes” rubbish here, but if you just do the work, put in the time, then our coaching will improve your dating life massively. Your age, ethnicity, confidence, looks – none of this really matters if you come into this with a positive mindset and an open-mind.  

100% I get it. Totally understandable. And the best way to do that is to get better with women in general. No woman wants to date a man that no other woman wants to date. Yes they can tell. 

So we really advocate learning some social and dating skills in general before you settle into a relationship. Then you’re dating out of choice, rather than desperation. 

It depends what you want out of the session, and which you currently enjoy (if any).

Both have their pros and their cons. Watch this video discussing both. 

If you’ve always wondered if you can meet women on the street, or in supermarkets, or in your local cafe, then the day is for you. 

If you enjoy going out, and you see the huge opportunity to meet women in bars, then the night is for you. Bars tend to be slightly easier for completely new guys, as approaching a woman in a bar is more “normal”.

Skype Session – you will be talking with Chris.

Day or a Night Workshop – Paddy, Alex, Andrew (Melbourne), Richard (Sydney).

You will be matched with whichever coach suits you and your personality based on our preliminary chat. If you do the Mega Workshop, you will work with all coaches. 

You’re also able to speak with any of the coaches on the phone before booking.

What’s the cost of not doing it. For some that will be less, for others it will be way more when you consider what can be spent on crap dates.

Over the years, Manic Workshops has improved, had more attention in the media, had more people wanting to book, so prices reflect that. 

However we’re still one of the cheapest companies in the industry, especially considering that we coach 1 on 1.

Consider also that we’re trying to save you the hours of wasted time on dud dates, as well as the money that a poor dating life can cost you (dates, buying the wrong girls drinks, nights out to hopefully meet someone, dance classes, online dating, etc). 

Depends largely on you and how you deliver it (especially approaches). 

Things and actions are not weird in themselves, people are. 

Manic Workshops has never been a “pick up artist” company. Sure we’re referred to as that in the media, however we consider ourselves dating and lifestyle coaches, trying to improve your overall life and happiness, as well as your dating life. 

If you want a more technical approach to meeting women, we can cater to that. If you want something completely natural and free flowing, this is our speciality.

Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

Occasionally Gold Coast, Perth and other major cities.

If you’re after Skype coaching, Chris can help you wherever you are in the world.

If you’re after infield coaching, Melbourne and Sydney are the cities that we always operate in.

If you’re after coaching in other cities/countries, please contact Chris to discuss.

It will work even better for shy guys.

It’s a very common myth that you need to be confident and extroverted to be good with women. In fact, some of our best clients have been very shy and have (initially) suffered from crippling social anxiety.

We don’t ask you to do anything too far outside of your comfort zone. Our aim is to improve you gradually, so that the changes last, rather than freaking you out and you retreating.

Read this article by Chris to understand why being shy might actually even benefit you. 

Besides a few bar managers and some security, absolutely not. Your privacy is incredibly important to us. As far as anyone knows, you and your coach are just friends out on the town, or going for a coffee.

Now since we go out very often, it’s possible that you may run into past clients or the occasional person who knows that your coach is in fact, a coach, however this happens rarely, as we avoid being overt in what we’re doing. 

Depends on what you want, and what is going on in the world. This current Corona situation has us out of action for at least 1-2 months (for infields that is). 

For Skype Sessions, the usual waiting time is about 1 – 2 weeks.

The wait time for day/night workshops is usually about 2 – 3 weeks.

The wait time for the Mega Workshop can be anything from 2 weeks to 2 months.
