Early life[edit]

Hussey was born in Essex, England on 19 June 1987 to Stephen and Pauline Hussey. He has two brothers.[8][9]


Hussey began working as a life coach in his late teens,[10] and in 2008 began working as a dating coach for women aged in their 20s to 60s.[11][12] Initially Hussey was a dating coach for men.[13]

In 2010 he moved to the United States[14] and has since attracted a following which includes actresses Eva Longoria[15] and Tyra Banks.[12]

He has had a column in Cosmo magazine since 2015[16] and offers Get the Guy online tutorials, 7-hour seminars and $4,000 retreats periodically in the UK and the United States.[13][15][12] Seminars include diagnostics, gendered advice on how to approach and offers lines and text messages tailored to various situations.[13][12] The $10,000/hr price tag on his one-on-one coaching has attracted media attention and even controversy.[17][12] His movie-star looks are often partly credited for the enthusiasm of his numerous female followers.[13][15]

Get the Guy is a family business managed by Hussey's father Steve Hussey.[13] Hussey's brother Stephen[18] often appears on videos on Hussey's YouTube channel and writes content for Hussey's site.[19]


Hussey's advice to women includes approaching men on the street and in cafés rather than just at bars and to always look their best even on mundane outings.[13] He encourages women to set their standards, be confident but challenging and have a fulfilled life to attract men.[15] He helps women face the challenges of technology-driven dating.[12] He advises that women approach men by asking for a favor.[20]
