Every great relationship begins with a good first date. And a good first date begins with you.

At A Good First Date, we work with men and women who want to date better. Some are new to dating while others have always been single. What they have in common is that they are frustrated with dating and are ready to try something new. They are ready to date in a different way.

Through date coaching and online dating consultation we help people figure out what’s going wrong, how to meet the right people and how to date successfully.

Learning to date better means interrupting negative patterns and creating change. Each person comes to dating from their unique perspective. We will meet you where you are and help you re-direct your dating to help you find the relationship you need, want and deserve.

It’s a plan that begins with A Good First Date.


Let’s figure out what’s going wrong

People are single for one or more of the following reasons: they don’t know what they want, aren’t meeting the right people, aren’t dating successfully or can’t transition into a relationship.

If you feel like you’re stuck in a negative dating pattern, aren’t getting out there or don’t know what you want, it’s time to pause and figure out what’s going wrong.

We can help.

Are you looking for the right things?

Many people come to us and say, “I want to be in a relationship,” or “I want to be married.” Others say, “I have too much energy to date anybody my own age,” or “I’ve waiting this long…I’m not settling.”

They have a list of things they need: height, age, education or body type.

They want the relationship more than the person.

They want somebody who checks the boxes.

They won’t “settle” until it’s perfect.


What you really want isn’t often what you really need.

Through one-on-one date coaching we will figure out who you are in a relationship and what you really need.

What is date coaching?

Think of date coaching as a deep dive into what’s happening.

During one-on-one sessions, we examine past relationships, recurring patterns and attachment styles.

We clarify what you need in a partner and a relationship.

We develop a plan to reach your goals and support you along the way.


Through online dating consultation, we will get you on the dating apps in the right way.

What is online dating consultation?

Unlike coaching, online dating consultation is more directive, that is, we will show you how.

You will work with your specialist who will create your profile and teach you how to best use online dating apps and websites.

The first step in our program is setting up the profile: writing the text, selecting pictures and choosing the right apps.

Next, we will teach you how to swipe and text effectively.

During side-by-side sessions we will show you different ways of evaluating profiles and how to text so that you get off of the app and onto a good first date!
