Let's be real.
modern dating can be a hilarious clusterfuck.
There's a lot of white noise and contradictory opinions on whose rules you should be following.
The overwhelm is frustrating, and tactfully navigating the constantly developing technology, rapidly shifting gender dynamics, and expectations from your harem of aunts at Thanksgiving can feel like a mapless expedition through an Amazon of apps.
Maybe you’re zapping your data and your optimism in a swiping frenzy.
Or you’re exhausting yourself trying every Internet guru’s #1 foolproof hack to attract your soulmate.
Or maybe you’re dating according to an outdated rulebook that might have worked for your Uncle Jimmy in 1965, but won’t fly in contemporary courtship.
You’ve tried it all. But you’re still single. And you still hate dating.
The inconvenient truth is this: there is no universal foolproof formula to hack love. If there was, we’d all be married to Halle Berry already.
But it’s not as complicated as you think.
In my work as a dating and relationship coach, and my prior years as a matchmaker, I’ve gotten backstage access into the love lives of hundreds of people. I’ve come to understand the overarching truths of attraction and communication, along with the idiosyncrasies, challenges, and advantages of finding love in the digital age.
I know the lay of the land and I’m here to guide you through the wilderness so that you can finally get out of your head and get into the high quality relationship you want.
It starts by throwing out the old rulebook, tapping into your authenticity, and responding to what’s actually happening now.
And trust me, it's going to be fun.
