Want to Feel Positive About Dating?

If you're tired of dating, and tired of being tired of dating, I have an answer for you: Become a dating optimist!

My book, MEETING YOUR HALF-ORANGE: An Utterly Upbeat Guide to Using Dating Optimism to Find Your Perfect Match will tell you exactly how. As I tell my personal story of dating disasters, nights watching Saved By the Bell alone on my couch, navigating whether the guys I liked were playing me or not, and surviving panic attacks of loneliness, I will also walk you through the process of how I changed it all for myself and how you can do the same thing. 

Dating optimism is based on studies in neuroscience and positive psychology, and includes actionable, step-by-step changes you can make in your life and your attitude that will change your dating life as you know it. After one quick read, you will find yourself becoming that woman or guy who walks in the room smiling, who makes everyone ask, "Who is that, and how can I be a part of their life?"
