I worked with Erika on the Platinum Package, and to say that it was a successful experience would be an understatement. Holly and I are going on a trip to Italy and Spain this week, and my kids seem to want to spend more time with her than they do with me! ... She said yes! She's amazing! She's incredible! I would have never asked her out without you. Thank you! Thank you!"

"I wanted to let you know that I started dating a new guy on Match in November, and I’m feeling like he’s a keeper! He’s cute as a button! I am one smitten kitten, and I think the feeling is mutual. Just wanted to share my good news and thank you for helping me get back out there — about this time last year. From taking some decent photos to fashioning my profile — you proved to be my Match catalyst! I so appreciate the expertise and enthusiasm you brought to my 'dating table.' Regardless of what happens with Michael, I will be eternally grateful!"

Your class on “How to hack your online life dating life” was instrumental in building confidence in me. I got on dating site in August 2021. My husband of 18 yrs (together 25) died in early 2020. My first EVER online dating experience at 69! I felt like a hottie! I met Mr. Fabulous (my nickname) - an author, political consultant, and an excellent match for me after two weeks on Silver Singles. Here we are, 8+ months later still in a committed relationship. Everyone wants to know how I did it! I told them I just need a Little Nudge!
