Online dating profile writing at e-Cyrano led to online dating coaching. I never saw myself as a player – if anything, I dated frequently because I wanted to fall in love.
Most couples simply stand by and allow the spark of their relationship to fizzle out in time, partly because they believe there's nothing to be done.
But with the right actions and added awareness, both partners can rekindle the romantic fire so that it burns more strongly than even in the beginning. Full on, all-night, torrid, romance novel-style action. It's very easy to look at other couples and yearn for what they have.

Unwittingly, she became my muse in teaching women how to connect with men, because whatever she does, it works.
After all of my dating and coaching experience, I’d found the most important thing in the world: a partner who saw me the way I saw myself, accepted me at my worst, and shared the same values and humor.

I give advice from a place of experience, truth and love. I’m only concerned that you find the relationship you deserve.

After thirteen years of coaching, I continue to take great joy in helping women understand men and create lasting relationships. As a writer who worked from home and disliked the bar scene, I believed firmly in online dating as a means of creating an instant social life.
One year later, I wrote my first book and launched my first website, e-Cyrano online dating profile writing.
The book got a glowing review in Time Magazine, which led to a piece in USA Today, which led to a segment on CNN.
I tried turning my personal failures into professional successes.
