All those who spent last Friday seeking a Valentine, with their significant other or even those just looking for a laugh are encouraged to come to the Stoller Center on Feb. 25 at 7 p.m. to be entertained by the Dating Doctor.
The Center for Gender Equity has invited David Coleman, advisor to the romantically challenged to visit the Pacific community.
Coleman is a frequent guest on major radio and television stations and is often quoted in popular magazines, newspapers and blogs such as Us Magazine, Celebrity Living, The USA Today, Women’s Health and Women’s World.
He has authored several books in his area of expertise such as 101 Great Dates, Date Smart!, Prescriptions for Life and Relationships, Let Your Leadership Speak and his most recent release, Making Relationships Matter!
Coleman’s achievements were not the only driving force that contributed his upcoming visit. CGE Project Coordinator Noelle Hall has been a fan of Coleman since she attended a previous discussion he held at Western Oregon University, where Hall was a student at the time.
“I think anybody could go to it and walk away with something,” said Hall.
Hall went on to explain that the usual events held by CGE concern taboo topics or the arts, such as the annual Mensch Festival or regular Brown Bag Discussions, but The Dating Doctor is applicable to everyone in attendance.
Single attendees will receive advice on finding the proper mate and those in a relationship will get tips on how to work through their rough patches with their significant other.
“We thought The Dating Doctor would appeal to both genders,” said Hall.
Though much of Coleman’s presentation advises the audience on their relationships, his approach is a comedic one. Hall explained that Will Smith’s character in the movie “Hitch” is based off of Coleman’s approach to relationships.
“This guy is legit,” said Hall. “It will be a nice break [from the semester].”
Tickets for The Dating Doctor are free for students and can be obtained at the University Box Office.
