About Wendy Newman

Media Kit with short BIO & Press Page

Hi. It's me, Wendy Newman.

I will help you understand men and partnership so you can build a strong foundation for a relationship that thrives.

Whether you're single or partnered, we can take your love-life from "just ok" to "f-ing amazing!"

If you're single, I'd like to offer you my free video series, First Date Success Secrets Revealed.

If you're coupled, I'd like to offer you my free Full Moon Ritual to make sure you're getting what you need in your relationship.

I'm a media celebrated author and a dating, sex, and relationship expert. I lead three different live video workshops: One for dating successfully to find your love, another on understanding men and creating a thriving partnership, and the third is called Sex Matters (because it does!).

For all you readers out there, I write books, articles, and a weekly advice column. If you love to watch videos, I spout off wisdom in Facebook Lives and on YouTube. Basically, I do all I can to disseminate information all in the spirit of helping women just like you find love and stay in love. So far I've helped over 50,000 women (since 2002) and I'm really looking forward to providing value for you and helping you have the personal life you desire.

Interested in my workshops, events and public speaking gigs? Women like you attend my events live or by phone and video because they're looking for understanding and useful tools to create exceptional relationships. They get those things from me, but they also leave with more self-confidence, a love of men, appreciation for themselves, and an overall sense of peace and happiness. I've touched the lives of over fifty thousand women by leading hundreds of workshops internationally on the topics of understanding men, sex, dating, online dating and building strong partnerships of all kinds. You can find out what's happening next or learn about my workshops.

My book, 121 First Dates: How to Succeed at Online Dating, Fall in Love and Live Happily Ever After (Really!) has been optioned for a film. (We're currently in what's called "development hell.") And it's getting plenty of love from Access Hollywood, The Wall Street Journal, The Huffington Post, The Chicago Tribune, The Washington Post, Glamour, Self, and more. I went on 121 first dates so you don't have to. It's the “anti-rules” dating book every single woman needs. Practical wisdom coupled with short stories of my favorite (and disastrous) dating adventures, 121 First Dates is published by Beyond Words/Atria/Simon & Schuster. You can buy it here.


This is who I retired my favorite, lucky dating scarf for back in 2013, first date #121. We live in San Francisco. We're adorable, right?

Over the past sixteen years both as a workshop leader, and in my personal dating life, I have interviewed thousands of men on women, sex, dating, and relationships.  I've conducted polls, had intimate one-on-one discussions, and have witnessed hundreds of panels made up of men speaking on these topics. Add to that extensive research, input from varied outside sources, 12-years of marriage, and a good old-fashioned trial-and-error approach to sex, relationships and love, and you get me: someone with a broad base of knowledge in the area of partnership who's full to bursting to share with you.

I'm passionate about people making choices from power instead of fear, and I want those around me to be free and uninhibited in their lives as they find their own path. Committed to communication and to people being heard and understood, I pursued my higher education at Vista College in Berkeley with a certificate in American Sign Language and Deaf Culture Studies. Women who work with me say I'm clear, compassionate, humorous, and unafraid to be myself.

Thanks for getting to know me! Now, how can I help you?
