About Wendy Newman

Media Kit with short BIO & Press Page

Hi. It's me, Wendy Newman.

I'm a media celebrated author and a dating, sex, and relationship expert, and I can help you thrive in your relationship(s).

Whether you're single or partnered, we can take your love-life from "just ok" to "f-ing amazing!"

If you're single and want to date effectively to find love, get Ready for Love.

If you'd like to take your relationship(s) to the next level, get Happy in Love.

I write books, articles, and a weekly advice column. If you love to watch videos, I spout off wisdom in Facebook Lives and on YouTube. Basically, I do all I can to disseminate information all in the spirit of helping women just like you find love and stay in love. So far I've helped over 60,000 women (since 2002) and I'm really looking forward to providing value for you and helping you have the personal life you desire.

My book, 121 First Dates: How to Succeed at Online Dating, Fall in Love and Live Happily Ever After (Really!) has been optioned for a tv series. (We're currently in what's called "development hell.") And it's getting plenty of love from Access Hollywood, The Wall Street Journal, The Huffington Post, The Chicago Tribune, The Washington Post, Glamour, Self, and more. I went on 121 first dates so you don't have to. It's the “anti-rules” dating book every single woman needs. Practical wisdom coupled with short stories of my favorite (and disastrous) dating adventures, 121 First Dates is published by Beyond Words/Atria/Simon & Schuster. You can buy it here.


This is who I retired my favorite, lucky dating scarf for back in 2013, first date #121. We live in San Francisco. We're adorable, right?

Over the past seventeen years both as a workshop leader, and in my personal dating life, I have interviewed thousands of men on women, sex, dating, and relationships.  I've conducted polls, had intimate one-on-one discussions, and have witnessed hundreds of panels made up of men speaking on these topics. Add to that extensive research, input from varied outside sources, 12-years of marriage, and a good old-fashioned trial-and-error approach to sex, relationships and love, and you get me: someone with a broad base of knowledge in the area of partnership who's full to bursting to share with you.

I'm passionate about people making choices from power instead of fear, and I want those around me to be free and uninhibited in their lives as they find their own path. Committed to communication and to people being heard and understood, I pursued my higher education at Vista College in Berkeley with a certificate in American Sign Language and Deaf Culture Studies. Women who work with me say I'm clear, compassionate, humorous, and unafraid to be myself.

Thanks for getting to know me! Now, how can I help you?
