Erika, I met someone in December. We've been dating exclusively since last January -- over a year. I took down my profile last February. I can't thank you enough for this wonderful experience. Just meeting you was fun enough, but to date a number of wonderful men and then meet perhaps "the one" (as they say) exceeded my expectations. I think you worked magic because, as you know, I hadn't been on a date in over 30 years. My greatest hesitation in being on Match was the photo piece and yet, that is the one thing that nearly every guy mentioned as what attracted him. I am totally convinced that your knowledge of what "look" attracts men was completely the key. You were worth every penny and more and I couldn't recommend you highly enough.

There are many wonderful men out there, even in my age group, and women should not give up hope. The man I am seeing is absolutely wonderful, and I have never been treated better in my life. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

"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!"
