Want to know how to start a clever conversation with that hottie in the corner? Or how to get his phone number in minutes? Then head over to Gaydatingsuccess.net, the first online bookstore for single gay men who want to improve their love lives.

Sex and relationship author Mike Alvear launched the new concept with five of his own ebooks and ten more from other authors on the way. “For the first time, single gay men can browse through hundreds (eventually) of ebooks made for their particular situations,” said Alvear.

For example, if you’re shy in the bars, there’s “Meet The Hottie In The Corner: The 21 Day Plan To Overcome Your Fear Of Rejection, Master The Art Of Icebreakers And Snag Guys You Never Thought You Could Get.” And if you’re not having much luck online there’s “Attract Hotter Guys Online: The Secret To Making Yourself Irresistible On Gay Dating Sites.”

Alvear is on the hunt to add other ebooks in the gay dating genre. He’s in negotiations with several well known authors and hopes to announce new titles on the site soon.

If you’re a budding author and want to showcase your ebook on www.gaydatingsuccess.net, contact Alvear at info@mikealvear.com
