About Wendy Newman

Hi. It's me, Wendy Newman.

I'm a dating and relationship expert and a media celebrated author. I write, advise, assist and help women just like you find love and stay in love. So far I've helped over 50,000 women (since 2002) and I'm really looking forward to working with you.

My book, 121 First Dates: How to Succeed at Online Dating, Fall in Love and Live Happily Ever After (Really!) is getting 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. Focusing on practical wisdom coupled with short stories of my favorite dating adventures, 121 First Dates is published by Beyond Words/Atria/Simon & Schuster. You can buy it here.

Interested in my workshops, events and public speaking gigs? Women like you attend my events live or by phone and video because they're looking for understanding and useful tools to create exceptional relationships. They get those things from me, but they also leave with more self-confidence, a love of men, appreciation for themselves, and an overall sense of peace and happiness. I've touched the lives of over fifty thousand women by leading hundreds of workshops internationally on the topics of understanding men, sex, dating, online dating and building strong partnerships of all kinds. You can find out what's happening next here or learn about the workshops I lead here.

As a dating, relationship and sex advisor, we can work together one on one by the hour. If you'd like a discount, you'll get the best deal with the 10-hour package. I've received a professional certification as a relationship coach, and I've been training coaches for the last several years. You can find one on one coaching with me here

IMG_2185I'm also an insightful and compassionate fellow dater who navigated my way through 120 -- yep, count 'em -- first dates before I retired my favorite, lucky dating scarf for first date #121. We live in San Francisco. We're adorable.  Don't take my word for it; check it out:

Over the past fifteen 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, a 12-year marriage + a long-term partnership, 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?
