Evan Marc Katz Infographic

When I started blogging in 2007, it was based on a friend’s recommendation. “Everybody’s doing it. It’s good for SEO. It’s a way to connect with your fans.” To me, it just sounded like a pain in the ass. I was a professional writer, I had two books under my belt, I had a weekly newsletter where I already gave free advice, so why would I want the headache of creating MORE free content for no money? But, as is my disposition, I took a chance, and, as is my disposition, I stuck with it.

9 years later, I am humbled and blown away at what this site has become. My little blog, which I half-heartedly started when I first met my wife (original title: AdviceFromASingleDatingExpert), has turned into a massive community. Nearly 9 million people came to EvanMarcKatz.com in 2015.

So I just want to say, from the bottom of my heart, how grateful I am. I began as a 34-year-old single writer, trying to navigate his way through the complicated LA dating scene. I didn’t know what I was doing, but that didn’t stop me. However, by hosting this blog, answering your questions, and participating in the vibrant comments section, I have become a better person. I’ve learned to understand different perspectives, challenge my own beliefs, inform my coaching practice, and, most importantly, choose an amazing wife. In short, I’ve grown up, thanks to you. I have a career, thanks to you. To some degree, I owe my life to you.

Which is why I would be remiss, after all this time, to keep these astounding numbers to myself. I wanted you to know that I appreciate your continued readership and that you are part of something much larger. Because of that, I vow to keep putting out regular provocative material (including a new podcast and YouTube channel in March) and to keep up my end of the bargain as long as you keep up yours.

With that in mind, I have one (okay, two) simple requests:

    Evan, I think you’re brilliant and I recommend this blog to every single woman I know.

    It’s hard to narrow it down, but the one thing   I always remember is that image from ‘Why He Disappeared’ of the woman standing with her feet in the sand, arms wide, accepting the man running towards her… or as you’ve put it elsewhere: ‘be receptive.’

    I have read your blog so much that I’ve given myself the title of dating coach for my group of friends.   Whenever they have problems, “Evan says” seems to always come out of my mouth.   Most recently, as I found myself back in the dating world after a brief stint a marriage, the advice I needed to hear most was:

    Don’t. Do. Anything.

    That, along with a reasonable time frame (2-3 months), kept me going when I had no idea what was happening with the guy I was dating.   I just smiled and acted happy to see him, and about 2 1/2 months in he formally asked me to be his girlfriend (and who even does that anymore?!).

    A close runner up is your wife’s blog post (also in your book)…I read and remind myself of that advice over and over again. Mulligans, picking your battles, putting an end to the double standard…all pieces of gold!

    Finally, you nudged me to give a chance to a guy without a college degree.   He’s smart, has his own house, very conversational, etc.   He’s blue collar but I’m glad I gave him a chance. Thanks Evan!

    I’ve learned that it’s okay that I want the man to take the lead as long as I am receptive and open to it in response. For a while, I was getting a lot of mixed messages from men I would ask for advice.

    I’ve also learned that none of this is easy for anyone. Reading other men and women’s experiences made me more comfortable with my own experiences, realizing that I was not a complete failure with men. I realized that other women were having the time of their life or being treated better then me, which helped me to take these things less personally.

    I also learned that men are very clear about their real intentions if you pay attention.

    I’m sure I learned more but that’s all I got without thinking too hard about it.

    Oh….I also learned that there are a lot of butt-hurt people out there that purposely look to hurt other people because their like wounded little children lashing out anywhere they can while screaming inside “please look at me! please acknowledge me! please love me!” – Yeah – you know who you are.
