One-on-One CoachingWoman laughing while working with dating coach

“Neely is not only a great dating coach, but a great life coach, too.

She forced me to look at the root of my problems with dating in order to fix them and move forward to achieve my goals. She first empowered me to truly believe that I can and will find someone and then worked with me to figure out how I would do it. She reminded me that even though I think I’m bad at dating, I’m actually an awesome person who would be considered a catch to any single guy. It’s not an overnight process as she says, but I don’t think I would have come nearly as far without her sage advice and insight. I learned many things from Neely, including my personal fears about dating and how I feel about myself when dating. I realized that I needed to stop caring so much what others thought and be true to myself and that life is simply too short to worry so much. Anyone who has hesitation about dating or doesn’t think they are cut out for it should talk to Neely.”

Amy, 33

I wasn’t sure if I was going to feel comfortable working with a dating coach like Neely, or that working with her would produce meaningfully better results than what my friends where getting when they were pursuing DIY online dating. I couldn’t have been more wrong! Neely provided a safe and confidential space. With Neely’s strategy and step-by-step plan, I made quick and solid progress and am in a relationship that I really like. Throughout the process, Neely provided ongoing support and I learned invaluable skills and gained insights that boosted my confidence and decision-making with respect to mate selection. Neely made a big difference and I’d hire her again!”

Hope you are doing well. Hope your little one is doing well too! I wanted to write to you to state that I am now very happily married for a month now to a wonderful man. I am so happy. I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your help through the process as I think you played a significant role in this process. I was looking over the work we did, the vision poster, the goals of getting married within 1-2 years ( oh my gosh, it happened!). I could not have done it without you and wanted to make sure I gave you most deserved credit for this. You really helped me to reconceptualize dating in a way that served me most well, the change in profile was life changing for my dating success and tackling some mental roadblocks head on! Thank you again so very very much!!”

Hi Neely, I hope you’re doing well. I wanted to let you know some good news from my end – Adam moved in at the end of July and we got engaged last night. It’s been such a great year getting to know him and the last 24 hours have been an awful lot of fun, getting to tell our friends and family. You were there since (before) the beginning, so I just wanted to say thank you for helping me get here!”

Violet, 30

I met Charlie on Match, and I have no doubt that my sessions with you helped a lot! After a few months of dating we fell in love and are crazy about each other and became exclusive. He has all the qualities I am looking for. He is committed and devoted, caring and loving and expressive of his feelings. I’m a different woman from before. I learned so much from our sessions about myself through the inner work I did, and today I know my own worth and Charlie came at the right time! It’s been 6 months since we met, I’ve met his family and friends and he’s met my friends, etc., and I couldn’t be happier!”

Amanda, 37

heart-and-arrow

You have had a lot to do with my reflecting more deeply and seeing myself in a different light. For example, I actually heard myself telling someone about my situation with the guy I’ve been seeing on and off. Although I was talking with confidence and authority I realized just how ridiculous I sounded and demeaning that relationship is. Something I could not have down without your help. I felt shame after talking about him. Nothing that made me feel too bad about myself but certainly enough to make me sure that I deserve better and it was time to leave that alone… for good. I have you to thank for that.”

Ali, 50

heart-and-arrow

I had such a great experience with you and want to share it with the world. You have no idea how much you have helped me, my dating life, and just my overall outlook. My attitude towards dating has changed drastically. Again, thank you so much for everything you’ve done for me. I miss our time together!”

Megan, 30

Neely helped me see things from a different perspective, reshape my approaches to dating and helped set expectations that I should aim for in a successful relationship. I really appreciated all the time that she took going over my writing assignments. It was clear that she was considering me as an individual. It was eye-opening. Neely made me see things in a different way than I had for a while.”

“Neely penned a thoughtful, energetic and fun profile that allowed me to get the attention I needed on Match! 

amount of push to take control.  I’ve gone on wonderful dates thus far and am having a great time!  I can’t believe I actually look forward to this whole online dating thing now!  She has really opened my eyes and given me a fresh new perspective on dating.  Thank you, Neely!”

Sania, 33

I would like to thank Neely for jump-starting my dating life. I had been on Match for a couple of years. My profile was uninspired, and I had less than energetic photos. She set me up with a photographer who was a gem and rewrote my profile using the the guts of her thoughtful and detailed survey. With her guidance, I took responsibility and felt supported throughout the process of having my profile made over and navigating the site once I was up again on Match. My confidence and self-esteem skyrocketed with Neely’s caring yet direct help. I feel energized and comfortable in my own skin — and I’ve met someone wonderful.

Kathryn, 47

Love, love, love my new profile — you’re the best! After reading what you wrote, my old profile pales in comparison. Based on your insight, you transformed my ordinary, cookie cutter profile, which read like a ‘laundry list’ into a very appealing, intriguing yet accurate portrayal. The online Dating eTrepover Questionnaire was thoughtful, introspective and worth the investment of time and energy in achieving the ultimate outcome. You have been great to work with, and I would highly recommend you and your book (a must read) to others — priceless! A very happy and thankful client!

You came up as one of my top recommendations so how about we give things a chance to see what comes out of this… Your profile definitely made my day. My inbox is overloaded with emails but I noticed your profile and it made me smile. ”

Your profile put a sparkle in my eye and snapped me out of a ‘mindless Match stupor’ I was falling into. I appreciate the almost eclectic balance you have in your life. My fingers are crossed for luck you just may want to say hello.

heart-and-arrow

I want to thank you for taking the time to view my profile, I really do appreciate it. Second, Wow! What a profile. Your picture caught my eye but your profile is why I responded. As I read your profile I thought —could this be the one? The more I read the more certain I was.

heart-and-arrow

Really enjoyed your profile – thoughtful, candid and insightful, which I feel there’s a scarcity of on this site – so I felt compelled to introduce myself.

heart-and-arrow

Good Afternoon. Match sent me an email with you as a potential match. Upon reading about you, I have to say that your profile stands out and differs from the dull profiles one may come across. It is fresh, simple, genuine and, icing on the cake, charming! There is hope then! Clearly needs more people like you although I suspect our goal is not to stay on match for ever! Thanks for being so unique and interesting.

heart-and-arrow

Love your profile and pics – would be grateful if you had a few moments to view mine and if you think I am worthy of further communication…

heart-and-arrow

What a thoughtful and rich portrait of you. Your Sunday is PERFECT – done it many times. We have the same recipe book. You have so much to offer; someone will be rich when they find you and are able to capture your heart.

heart-and-arrow

Nice profile…You made my day.

heart-and-arrow

Good morning, I am sure you have been inundated with emails and inquiries about your availability but I just wanted to drop you a line to compliment you on your smile, beauty, pictures and profile.

heart-and-arrow

Excellent profile narrative. Hope to talk you soon!

heart-and-arrow

I have a confession to make. I stopped at your profile because visually you were attractive to me. Then I read your profile and pictured you in my life, using the background of your photos. When it felt right, I wrote.”
“You have a fantastic profile and I could not help but notice that we share a few common interests and possibly a similar outlook.

heart-and-arrow

Thank you for being up front about your past relationships. I appreciate the honesty very much. It’s fine with me. I also wanted to mention that I think your viewpoint about living life is spot on. I enjoyed reading what you wrote about that.

heart-and-arrow

I am not really sure where to begin this email as I truly enjoyed what you had to say. Obviously you are a very beautiful woman physically but you seem even more beautiful on the inside.

heart-and-arrow

You have made me smile. What an excellent write up. Let me know what you think. I would like to take you out and see what happens.

heart-and-arrow

I should be working, but for someone who writes their Match profile like a movie trailer, I had to say hello right away, and Outlook can relax for a few minutes.

heart-and-arrow

Welp. I’m hoping you might like to get to know one another….. :) Pretty great profile. Very different than most of the profiles you see on here…

heart-and-arrow

I’m pretty sure that this is probably 1 of 94 emails in your inbox right now…

heart-and-arrow

You seem fantastic…well-rounded, fun, intelligent, and considerate (among several other things)! I truly appreciate the time, thought, and energy you put into your profile.

heart-and-arrow

That’s a really great description of yourself. I can’t imagine anyone not being captivated by your clear understanding of who you are.

heart-and-arrow

In the spirit of being supportive, I want to compliment you on your profile…smartly written and sincere. It really is a sweet read. Your mid-western sensibility really comes through.

Style & Image MakeoversStylish woman walking down the street with her new style makeover

“I contacted Neely on a whim, the week after I had gone through yet another bad breakup.

I was not sure about how it would turn out but I’m so glad that I decided to contact her, it was one of the best decisions I’ve made for myself. Since I met Neely, we went on a shopping trip and did the in-home wardrobe consultation. I feel like my whole life has turned around. I am getting noticed at airports, at work, etc for my clothes in just the first week of wearing them. I found out a lot about myself through this process and it was surprising because I was not expecting to learn that much about myself through this experience. Neely taught me how to dress myself to convey all the things that I aspire to be: smart, successful, and confident. Not only has my confidence skyrocketed as a result of working with her, but I have learned to take care of myself and that’s something that was definitely lacking in my life.”

Sarah, 29

Once I decided I was going to start dating again, I knew my wardrobe needed a little update. Neely helped me understand what my body shape is, and we talked about my style needs and desires. She gave me good ideas as to what was and wasn’t working and helped me purge items in my closet. We also went on a shopping trip. I still love the clothes I got when I was shopping with Neely. I can wear them with confidence, knowing I look fabulous.

ProductsWoman enjoying reading Neely Steinberg's dating book "Skin In the Game"

“The idea that smart, career-minded women should devote themselves to a series of rules that manipulate (clearly insecure) potential mates

mates into maintaining interest makes me sad, and honestly, has turned me off the whole genre. But Neely Steinberg’s Skin in the Game: Unleashing Your Inner Entrepreneur to Find Love is one of the few women-oriented books covering dating and relationships that doesn’t offend me. Steinberg’s premise is essentially this: Treat your love life as you would a start-up. You, as an entrepreneur, are responsible for investing in your dream love life. You imagine it. You create it. You own it. Steinberg doesn’t offer rules, or do’s and don’ts — rather, she provides strategies for being more mindful of who you are and want you want, as well as lots of emphasis on self-love, a concept typically absent from the genre. What’s helpful about this book is that it routinely encourages self-reflection. This is huge. Steinberg demands you to sit with your thoughts, no matter how uncomfortable, and reflect on your unhealthy (and healthy) patterns and habits. So whatever your ultimate love agenda may be, even if you don’t have one, the book’s exercises are highly valuable”

Aloha Neely! I just wanted to share that I am loving your book. You are so relatable and your perspective is smart. I can’t put the book down. It reached me at a point where I wanted to just give up. Like you I wondered where are the good guys. I too believe in visualization, but never applied it to my love life. I am excited to know that a healthy and happy relationship is out there.

I have totally STUDIED your book! I have a few dates lined up next week; it’s amazing when you start making a strategy, as you say, who and what can appear in your life. I have told all my single girls about your book…it’s such a unique approach that a lot of professional women can relate to!

Alyssa, 36

Love your book. I’ve never seen this approach and it makes so much sense. You write so clearly it seems like anyone can do it — empowering and inspiring! I’m even back online, experimenting with a better attitude. Thank you!

Sarah, 39

I’m really enjoying your book! It’s great because so much of it is reinforcing what I already believe and adding to it. It’s definitely given me a framework that I can use.

Seminars &
WorkshopsNeely Steinberg hosting a fashion show at Neiman Marcus

“Neely is wonderful and incredibly knowledgeable.

By attending her dating workshop, I learned that I shouldn’t settle for less than I deserve, and that dating is a learning experience, and that it’s OK to date more than one guy at a time. She taught me to let go of the people in my life who are not good/healthy for me and to stop putting up with bullshit when I deserve so much better in life. It was also helpful knowing that she had experienced many of the things in her personal life that I’m going through, and to see her now in a happy, healthy relationship was inspiring for me.”

Carly, 24

Thank you, Neely! I wanted to write and let you know I found your presentation last night really helpful.  The same is true of the one you did last month.  My friend went with me last night, and she was really glad she did.  We hope you will have another event sometime!”

I attended Neely’s workshop in January. After 6 months online…I met the most wonderful guy. We have been dating for 4 months and we plan to be together long term. Her tips and insight were very helpful, thank you, Neely! I will share her information if I learn of anyone who it could benefit.”

Neely was funny and informative. She helped me look at things from a different perspective. I learned how to reflect on my experiences and not put them in my bad dating piggy bank. I’m not very trusting and I seem to date the wrong men, but Neely taught me that the cycle ends with me. If I work on myself first, then the good will come later.”

Tracy, 25

I attended one of Neely’s dating seminars. Her energy was great. She showed a different way to look at my dating life and to not put all my eggs in one basket as I’m out there dating and experimenting.”
