a good first date

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

You can’t control how or when you find love, but you can control how you approach dating, your dating mindset.

When you understand what’s going wrong and how to fix it, you will be in the best possible position to meet the right people.

Through one-on-one coaching and consultation, we help you take a new, mindful approach to dating.

Together we will create your unique plan to find the relationship you want, need and deserve.

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

Dating without a plan is like going on 75-year long road trip… without a destination

People dive into dating without thinking carefully about what they need. They date aimlessly. They don’t know where they’re going. It’s frenetic, inefficient and disheartening.


Create Your Dating Roadmap

The first step in dating better is clarifying what you need and planning how to get there.

The second is looking at your dating patterns, identifying blocks and developing a plan to overcome them.

We liken our process to creating a dating roadmap. When you have direction, clarity and a plan, you don’t blame demographics or algorithms.

Clarity gives you control of your dating experience.


We will help you date better by: clarifying what’s going wrong, developing a plan to reach your goals and providing support along the way.

We work with men and women who want to date better. Our private client services include date coaching and online dating consultation.

Through one-on-one date coaching, you will finally know what’s going wrong and
how to change course

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 the client needs in a partner and a relationship. We develop a plan to reach their goals and support them along the way.

Our online dating services are comprehensive

Online dating can feel like a full-time job, but when used correctly, the apps are a great way to meet the right people.

We will guide you through the process - everything from writing the profile, teaching you how to swipe - match - and text to have higher quality matches and better first dates.


We will help you date better

We know relationships. Between us, we’ve experienced marriage, divorce, single parenthood, online dating, and most recently, engagement!

There isn’t much we haven’t seen. That’s why we joined forces to help others who are ready to date differently.

As a former matchmaker and divorced parent of two NYC teens, I know dating inside and out – and I’ve seen firsthand how our process can dramatically improve the dating experience.
