Dating Doctor dishes out advice to students

We all remember the movie “Hitch” starring Will Smith, the story of a legendary and anonymous date doctor who advises not so dating-savvy male clients to get the woman of their dreams.

Well, America’s real-life Hitch, David Coleman, is coming to UNK. This is the real-life dating doctor. He has won the Campus Activities Magazine National Speaker of the Year nine times. His advice and comedic style has entertained millions of people leading him to be featured in publications such as Cosmopolitan, The New York Times, Us Magazine, USA Today and The Washington Post. He has also been featured on CNN and all major television networks.  

During his presentation, Coleman promises his audience will walk out challenged to change as individuals, be encouraged to make every day matter, learn to appreciate and practice the characteristics found in healthy relationships and learn to manage their fears and obstacles and turn them into opportunities and more.  

This real-life Hitch focuses his curriculum on his prescriptions for life offering advice about how to make long-distance relationships work and help for the romantically challenged.

Want to know why “nice guys” fail to win a woman’s heart? Have questions about breakups, whether someone is Mr. Right, Mr. Right Now or Mr. Next? Coleman will tell the truth about Facebook, go over the “rules” of dating, offer tips for men and women on being a good date and so much more.

UNK Residential and Greek Life got the idea to get David Coleman: The Dating Doctor to campus after UNK’s Panhellenic Council and Interfraternity Council attended the AFLV Central Fraternal Leadership Conference in St. Louis two years ago. Allie Nightingale, a junior elementary education major from Kearney said, “When I got to see David Coleman at the conference, I walked out thinking how hilarious he was, and he really makes you think about relationships in a different way. He knows how relationships work. I love that I am getting another opportunity to see him again.”

The event will be held on Tuesday, April 13 at 7 p.m. in the Ponderosa Room of the student union. It is open to all UNK students and is free with a student ID.
