Your approach IS ‘transatlantic.’

As I'd hoped, your approach IS 'transatlantic.' I knew I needed stretching and reining-in at times - sometimes simultaneously! Thanks again for your help with the navigation and documentation.

WOW is she cute. Do you know that I've emailed her in the past when I had an old profile on Match and she never responded? What magical email powers you have! I have never averaged a date every other weekend. Pretty soon it is a date every weekend. Words cannot express what a positive thing this is doing for my life...meeting great women on dates. No other dating service or structured activity had me meet as many women in such short period of time. I am a better person because of this. I owe it all to you. My heart is smiling. :)

We decided to be exclusive!

I kept up with OkCupid with the edits you helped me make. I recently met a very nice guy who is actually perfect and exactly what I've always been looking for, and we decided to be exclusive within just a couple of dates. So thanks for all your help!

Erika made me feel like a VIP.

I tried the Platinum Nudge and Erika made me feel like a VIP. She took care of everything -- from finding suitable matches to setting up dates and making reservations. I essentially got a whole new social life, with very little time or effort on my end. At the same time, she clearly arranged everything to suit my particular personality and interests. The whole experience was a pleasure and I highly recommend it.

“She’s the one for you.”

I worked with Erika on the Platinum Package, and to say that it was a successful experience would be an understatement. Not only did she find places in Des Moines for dates that I didn’t even know existed, but she hand-picked my current girlfriend from Match.com and said, “She’s the one for you.” It turns out she was right.

Her coaching strongly nudges us to action.

Erika offers skill and talent that's so individualized. Just as most of us buy greeting cards to say what we want, we also need someone to present us in a way that really gets down to who we are, who we're looking for, and what relationship we're after. Her coaching strongly nudges us to action; and helps us sustain the plan for as long as we commit.

It really sounds like me.

One thing I find particularly impressive is that it really sounds like me. The self-deprecating line you added about my hair is the kind of thing I often say at the store. I am glad you also captured my general geekiness -- hopefully easier to see in my emails than in person, but they are both part of "the magic that is me", as Frasier Crane would say. :)

Thank you so much for all your help with my profile - it's a great read now and it describes myself in a way I couldn't have done on my own (and I'm in marketing!)

You’re gooooooood!

Erika - it's only been 12 hours since I sent out those emails and we're already at 40% for responses. PLUS emails from other random people we didn't contact. You're gooooooood!

I just bought an engagement ring.

Just when I was about to sign off [of online dating], she emailed me... I thought of you today mainly because I just bought an engagement ring. I want to thank you for helping get used to dating (not just online).

You have been a huge help.

I just wanted to send a quick note saying thank you for all your help. Knowing it was going to be hard this time around to get back out there after my last relationship, I’m glad that my searching the internet looking for help led me to your website. You have been a huge help getting my life moving forward again.

I like the natural, conversational voice.

Erika, this is fantastic! It's great to get your perspectives -- I never would have been able to appraise those photos -- and I like the natural, conversational voice of the profile.

I’m engaged to a girl I met on Match.com!

I’ve been meaning to send you an email to say hi and share the news that I’m engaged to a girl I met on Match.com... using the profile you helped me write of course!

You say exactly what I am thinking.

You have a way of saying exactly what I am thinking but never can get the words composed in an email.

You actually got me to send out the emails.

I wanted to let you know that we had a 50% response rate on the emails. You must have some kind of magic in selecting people to email or there is something that works in your emails... and you actually got me to send out the emails rather than think about it and plan for a month.

I am in love with the results!

I wanted to pass on to you that I just passed the 9 month mark with one of the guys I meet on Match, and it is going REALLY great. I want to say thank you for giving me the confidence and tools to put myself seriously out there in the dating world. I am in love with the results!

I am getting a lot of interest.

I am getting a lot of interest - I wrote to about 10 guys (a couple wrote to me too) and only 2 have not written back!

My jaw hits the floor.

Finally, I decide to just roll with [Erika's] advice, meet her in person, and evaluate things face to face. She rolls into Starbucks right on time. My jaw hits the floor. Oh....my.....god...absolutely drop dead gorgeous! I was just stunned. Instant chemistry, two hour coffee, second date lined up.

Thanks again for the great profile! Friends have said that you did an amazing job of capturing my personality! Plus, even though it's only been up for a few days, the positive response has been dramatic!
