Helping Those 44 and Above Find Love with Leonardo Bustos of the Mate Acquisition Program

April 24, 2014
00:0000:00


The Companionator Leonardo Bustos, Creator of the Mate Acquisition Program, the most logical way to find your best available Love Match in the shortest time possible joins eHealth Radio and the Dating and Relationship Channels. His program is designed to help find love for 44 and above.


playpodcast.png


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Leonardo Bustos discuss the following:

  • What is it that you do and how are you different?
  • What is your background?
  • How did you get started & what was the inspiration of creating The Companionator?
  • You mentioned that it’s a scientific approach – how is it scientific?
  • Can you give us some dating tips that you share with your clients?
  • What do you have planned for the future?

Duration: 15:14


Leonardo Bustos first became well known as a relationship and dating expert in 1981, when he wrote and published his first book, "How To Attract Men and Keep Them Interested", followed by "How To Attract Women and Keep Them Interested" under the writer’s name Steven Zapman. They can still be found on Amazon.com and other online book stores.




At the time, he was featured in many publications like Playboy, Cosmopolitan, the L.A. Times and many other journals too numerous to mention. He also garnered plenty of media attention on many radio and television stations - the most prominent being a weekly spot on a nationally syndicated radio program called "Something You Should Know".


He spoke to dozens of organizations and thousands of singles seeking romance and relationships. He had a brief stint teaching a course "How to Attract the Opposite Sex" at Glendale Junior College in the early 1980's.





For marriage and personal reasons, he switched careers and for the next several years became a successful real estate agent and broker marketing multi-million dollar commercial and residential properties.




In the year 2000 he became single again and dusted off his dating skills. Although he had no problem meeting women at the supermarket, nightclubs or through friends, he quickly discovered that far and away the easiest and most practical way to meet single women was through internet dating.



It’s important to know that even with his background and dating skill set, his first entry into the internet dating scene was not very successful – but after several months of research, trial and error, he learned to master it. 

In 2010, he decided to pick up where he left off precisely half his life ago to renew his career as a dating and relationship expert. He upgraded from cassette tapes and VHS video tapes to computers, spreadsheets and the internet.



Since then, he has published “How To Attract Women With Humor” and “The Ultimate Dating System”. For the past several years, he has worked on combining his decades of experience in preparing and marketing million dollar properties on the internet with his expertise in dating and relationships to create a revolutionary, one of a kind video/software program called the Mate Acquisition Program.


Mate Acquisition Program is the only combined Audio/Video and software program in the world that uses data, the internet and coaching to help those seeking love to select and connect with a perfect partner in the shortest time possible. It helps to prepare and market you like a famous celebrity to as many other singles as possible using the latest innovations and techniques in Evolutionary Psychology, data analysis and Internet Technology.

He has been called "The Companionator", and he and his mentor Leonardo Amorado host a free online dating workshop which can be found at his YouTube Channel under MrLsbustos.


His next plan is to market himself on 20 of the top dating websites as the number 1 “Self Proclaimed” Baby Boomer Bachelor to find his best love match using the system he’s created. He’s going to post a headline “Who Wants Fame, Fortune, Travel, Adventure and Romance?” and do a media blitz on local and national programs in order to find his perfect love match. His match must also have the skills and abilities to help him to build the business even bigger. She must also have the same passion and desire to help other lonely singles find their love match by traveling the world to promote the system.


He also plans to shoot a reality/documentary film on how a dating expert finds his ultimate love match by going behind the scenes to show how he creates professional online profiles, how he sends and responds to messages, and how he behaves on dates.


He currently is offering his video/software program for free to the first ones who want to experience the first beta test rollout. You can sign up here at MateAcquisitionProgram.com for more information.
