After suffering with an eating disorder from age 13 to 19, I took a long hiatus from dating to focus on recovery. When I emerged from years of hard work healing my relationship with my body in my mid-twenties, I realized I had no idea how to date.
I thought being an unaffected Cool Girl™ (and sex columnist published in dream publications like Playboy, Cosmo, and Marie Claire) would make dating easier. It didn't.
I was beating myself up whenever someone unmatched me, crying in my cubicle at work when I didn't get a text back, and having mediocre sex with mediocre men who (and this isn't an exaggeration) lived in their dad's basement or didn't have a bed frame.
Then, from 2017 to 2019, I decided to drive (and date) across the entire United States and back by myself. Living in 9 cities for 1-2 months each, I challenged myself to develop the same intuitive relationship with dating that I had learned to cultivate with food, movement, and my body in eating disorder recovery.
Through roadtripping and doubling down on all the tools I had learned in recovery, I found myself happier, less stressed, and not only enjoying better relationships with other people, but a far better relationship with myself.
Before the trip, I had spent many years going on bad dates, worried about never experiencing partnership, and blaming myself for my lack of "success." Since 2020, I've been helping others not waste as much time stuck in a crappy dating life as I did.
If you're ready to develop a radically different relationship with dating that leaves you feeling mentally healthier, less stressed, and more rooted in self-love, I can't wait to have you be a part of my anti-diet dating coaching group.
