My entire life, I’ve been asked: “How do you enjoy dating so much?! It SUCKS.”
"Dana just loves people,” my friends would say. Or “Dana only loves dating because it's one of her favorite hobbies.” Or “Dana just loves sex.”
And sure, all of those things are true, but the reality is dating can suck. But imagine a dating life where you’re having fun, not feeling stressed out, and only going out with people who are engaging, interesting, and respectful—all while you’re have the most fire sex of your life.
There is a better way to date. I promise, promise, promise. I know this because I help people find that better way.
How I got started: I’ve been a Playboy sex columnist for the last 6 years, and from 2017 – 2019, I drove and dated across the entire country by myself to live in 9 different US cities for 1-2 months each. I know what it’s like to date in New York (where I’m from), Boston, Asheville, Denver, Austin, Miami, Chicago, Missoula, Los Angeles (my favorite!), Portland, and Seattle. I don't believe in cookie cutter dating advice (after all, if you've lived in more than one city, you know dating in NY isn't the same as dating in Boston or dating in Los Angeles, etc). As a former roadtripper, I'm the first person to understand dating is really dependent upon where you live and the people around you.
I'm also 13 years recovered from an eating disorder. If you're struggling with your body image and it's getting in the way of your sex life--I've been there. I know that place well. I also know how to get out of that place, so you can go off and finally live the life you want. To check out my coaching philosophy (and how my ED recovery and traveling lifestyle influenced it), here's everything you need to know about my point of view and what I believe in.
What I do: As an anti-diet dating coach, I help people create the sex and dating lives they deserve. My motto is “no expectations, high standards.” I arm people with the tools to become a dating expert themselves and tackle all the body image shit that’s been getting in the way of their dating success.
Common reasons people come to me for dating coaching:
Dating apps are too overwhelming and they don’t know where to start / been out of the game for a long time and need to be caught up to speed
Believe apps are a waste of time, had negative experiences with dating in the past, and/or have had trouble finding people who are worth their time
Don’t believe who they want is even out there, frightened of being judged by others, unsure of how to date without expectations
What I do with my coaching clients:
LOTS of hands-on support
Aid in choosing which apps are best for them
Help write a killer dating app bio and choose profile pictures
Offer 1-on-1 swiping support (I quite literally look over your shoulder while you swipe, helping you determine who to swipe left and right for, and ask helpful questions along the way)
Teach how to initiate meaningful conversation on apps, as well as convert app conversations into IRL dates
Powerful mindset work
finding the motivation to date
body image/body acceptance
ending negative self-chatter
My coaching style is pretty much what you'd expect if you follow my social media: conversational, fun (when it comes to dating), no bullshit but deeply empathetic (when it comes to your relationship with your body).
Partnered and only want to work on your body image? Don’t worry; I work with non-single people, too. I'll help you learn how to date yourself so you can have more pleasurable relationships with yourself and others.
Ready to get started? Here's how it works:
1. Shoot me an email at DanaHamiltonCoaching@gmail.com.
2. I’ll send you a questionnaire so I can learn a little bit about you.
3. We’ll schedule a free 15-min video chat consultation to see if we’re a good fit to work together.
4. If we’re a good fit, I’ll develop a custom coaching plan specifically to address your needs. If we’re not, I’ll refer you to someone else who I believe could be helpful. (I don't leave my people hanging. Ever.)
I look forward to meeting you! Consider this a swipe right.
