Dating coach may be helpful. Following advices and doing some taught sweet actions may move date's mind and can succeed in going out to dating for couple times. However, just doing some advised actions does not make one a whole different lovable person. The most important thing in love is a sincerity of that person.

The movie shows the difference between a relationship with sincerity and it with no sincerity. Even with the dating coach, the relationship with no sincerity does not last long, but the relationship with sincerity ends happily even without following all the advices.
