How to Improve Your Verbal Skills to Help Your Dating Life

Question from fan Brian: “How do you improve your verbal skills? Some people are just not as gifted with their words as others, especially for us Asian guys who grew up speaking an Asian language at home.”

Hey Brian,

I totally understand where you’re coming from. Having been born in Taiwan and speaking Chinese exclusively for the first six years of my life and having to speak mainly Chinese to my parents, I wasn’t raised in the best environment for learning fluent English.

As a bilingual child, I would often stutter, use idioms wrongly (“look that over” does NOT mean “overlook,” oops), and speak in disjointed sentences, as I continually searched for that perfect word on the tip of my tongue that never came.

It took conscious effort to improve my verbal skills. But it definitely paid off when it came time to meet the ladies. It really helps when you know just the right words to say.
