I’m a dating coach for women who are serious about creating a healthy loving relationship in midlife. I believe it’s never too late to find the love you deserve. But four years ago, when I first started dating after my divorce, I was not yet a dating coach. I was an overwhelmed, confused and insecure woman. Like many of you, I had no idea how to even begin to date after a 25-year hiatus.
When my divorced friends began dating (a few years before I was ready to date), I noticed that they were making some big mistakes. Their online profiles were vague. Their photos were not doing them justice. They were over-interpreting men’s emails and choosing men who treated them poorly.
I knew they could have more success if they were proactive, did the inner work and tweaked their dating skills. I rewrote their profile essays to reflect more of their essence. I had them upload new photos that brought out their true beauty. I became a behind-the-scenes Cyrano de Bergerac as I advised them on what to write in their emails and what to say on a phone call to move the relationship forward.
The Man Whisperer
When my friend called me the ‘Man Whisperer’ for my ability to understand men, I realized that I had found my true calling as a dating coach.
