The Smart Dating Bootcamp

Are you frustrated because you're not meeting quality, commitment-minded men?

Do you keep putting work ahead of your personal life, and you're ready to make yourself a priority?

Are you tired of dating Mr. Wrong - over and over again - and are you SO ready for the RIGHT man - someone who makes you feel challenged, inspired and adored?

If you answered YES (or HELL YES!), and you're ready for dating to get easier and much more FUN, then Smart Dating Boot Camp is perfect for you!

I've been matching couples and coaching women for almost a decade and here's what I know:

Finding the love of your life is not reserved for a select few. It's reserved for those with the right strategy.

That's exactly why I created Smart Dating Boot Camp: A program that will take you from being single and frustrated to knowing the exact secrets of attracting the man of your dreams.

I'm taking the very best of what I've learned and what I know works when it comes to finding the love of your life, and I'm going to share it with you.

The Truth You Need to Know

If you've been unsuccessful finding the love of your life - or even a guy you can stand dating for more than 2 weeks! - it's NOT your fault. There's nothing wrong with you. It's your STRATEGY. Dating is a skill - it's not intuitive. And if you date differently, you'll get a different result!

I'll teach you the very same concepts, skills and strategies I teach my one-on-one private clients at a fraction of the cost.

What could be more fun than learning how to date smart with a bunch of fabulous like-minded single women?

I'll show you a NEW way of dating so you feel positive and excited (instead of frustrated and confused). I'll teach you how to understand exactly why men do what they do - and how to meet the very BEST ones. You're actually going to enjoy dating because I'm going to teach you everything you need to know to find LOVE in 2016!

What You'll Learn

I’m a big believer in getting right with yourself before Mr. Right will show up. So, during this bootcamp we’re going deep.


  • identify the patterns and habits that might be getting in the way of finding the love of your life

  • unpack the beliefs that could be keeping you single (and safe)

  • learn the skills of a smart dater and how to implement them without sacrificing who you are and what feels good and natural to you

  • discover the secret to attracting the exact right men into your life - whether you’re at work, on vacation, or in a grocery store (when you learn this, dating becomes really fun!)

Smart Dating Bootcamp is all about getting you the RESULTS you want in your love life. And together with your fellow bootcampers, you’ll learn how to leave the drama, self-doubt and the past behind so you can move forward with the life and partner you’ve been dreaming about.

What You’ll Get

When it comes to finding Mr. Right, it’s not just about learning a few dating tricks. It’s about a whole new approach to dating. And it’s about deeply valuing yourself so you’ll attract exactly who you want. That’s why when it comes to the boot camp experiences I offer my clients, I leave NOTHING out!

What Some of My Clients Have Said About Working with Me

“I have found this Boot Camp to be such a great experience! Thank you for helping me have a strategy for getting my groove back after 24 years and learning how this new concept of dating works! Thanks so much!“
“Being part of a group of single woman had much more of a positive impact than I ever expected. The women I was lucky enough to be grouped with were open and willing to share their stories, which made me feel comfortable and safe to share mine. While I am lucky to have many lifelong friends I am close with, most are married with children. My Boot Camp group friends understand my nervousness before my dates, share in the excitement of a post good date report and are always willing to meet up for a girls night out. It is amazing support I had no idea how much I would come to value.“
“I just had a great second date. And we've already set the 3rd date. I cannot thank you enough for teaching me how to date. I feel so much more confident on dates. Positivity is key!!! I cannot believe how much it has changed my dating! No matter how this (or any date) turns out, you have changed my life! (And I think you know me by now...I am not one to lay on the cheese unless it is true;))”
"I just wanted to say that all of you ladies really inspire me. You inspire me to be brave and go on dates and share the funny stories with you so we can laugh together, you inspire me to keep hope that the right man for me really is out there and you inspire me to value myself enough to keep clear focus on finding a guy that treats me really really well. I am grateful for all of you--and of course Michelle too, for bringing us all together!!!"
“Working with Michelle has completely changed my perspective on dating. I ask better questions before deciding if I would like to go on a date with someone, I feel more confident that I am putting my best foot forward when I go out on dates and I don't worry about not finding someone else if I go out with someone I ultimately decide not to see again. I know there will be a great guy in my future! It's an entirely new perspective for me. It is refreshing, positive and motivating!”
“Michelle's Boot Camp program helped me to learn that the things that I need in a relationship are not insignificant and should not be dismissed in exchange for just having someone to date. Michelle taught me how to spot "red flags" and walk away sooner rather than investing time in someone that ultimately will not be able to meet needs that are important to me. Walking away before investing time and feelings allows me the time to focus on finding someone that is right for me. Every woman should have Michelle's support and advice in their dating efforts!!”
“I would highly recommend working with Michelle! Anyone looking to find a really great relationship should be armed with her wisdom, advice and encouragement! “
“After working with Michelle, I had more dates in 6 months than I'd had in my entire life pre-boot camp! It was a game-changer for me and totally transformed the way I date and view dating. Thank you, Michelle!”

More Happy Clients

“You really care about people and your work and that shines through. I can see why you are the best at what you do!"”
- Liz, coaching client
“Thank you for challenging my preconceived notions and my unrealistic expectations. You gave me the tools to be the best Me I could possibly be. Things are going really well with my boyfriend! I am very happy with him and I love how much we communicate. I feel very secure in this relationship because of who I am and how he rises to meet my needs. We do not place demands on each other. We do things for each other because we want to see the other person's face light up. :) I am really excited to meet his parents and his sister in less than two weeks!?”
- G. G.
"I have been meaning to write you. I have been dating three very attractive men the past month. Enjoying it enormously. I stopped using the online sites to focus on these three men who are smart, sophisticated, tender, romantic, well-traveled and athletic. Thank you for helping me have the courage to do this. And for encouraging me to color my hair. All three men are very complimentary. You chose a good look for me, and the appreciation of your photographer's pictures has been unanimous. I am amazed at the quality and quantity of men in my age group with depth to them. You may use this as a reference if you like."
-60 year-old dating coaching client, Washington, DC
"I have been meaning to email you to say thank you for your counsel last year. I found the process extremely valuable and took many of your wonderful suggestions to heart. I am in a relationship now that is just entering the year mark, and progressing well beyond my expectations. So, yes, I am off the market!"
-J.F., 38 year-old coaching client
"Thank you so much. I hope I was able to convey to you on Wednesday how impressed I am with you in your role. You definitely have a gift in making simple what can be the very confusing world of relationships. I got so much out of our time together; I feel much more empowered to get what I want out of relationships, and I am very grateful for the time you spent with me."
-E.G. coaching client
"It was really wonderful meeting you. Your words of advice had a very strong effect on me. I was so impressed with how well and deep you think. I certainly need you as my relationship coach. I had a more productive meeting with you than I had with a number of therapists over the years."
-Sonia, 52
"I'm so happy I finally decided to get help with dating and relationships and had the courage to make the call and get coaching. My future children have you to thank -- seriously"
-J.Y., 36 year-old coaching client
"Thank you SO MUCH for all of your support, guidance, understanding and perspective over the last three months. I've really enjoyed working with you and have learned so much about how to screen guys better, set better boundaries, ask for what I want and be more assertive. I'm still working on it all, but your support has made a huge difference. I just wanted to tell you again how much I appreciate all the help you've given me. THANK YOU!!! I would love to keep in touch and keep you posted on my dating journey."
-R.S. 41 year-old coaching client
"I normally would send the "proper" thank you note via the post office, however, I felt that I had to thank you immediately and, the formality had to go out the window! Thank you so much for making me feel so comfortable. I know how valuable your time is not only as a business woman but, more importantly a mother. I know you went overtime with me and I want you to know I don't take that for granted and how much I appreciate you and your time. You do truly give off light and energy and make people feel good - you did this for me. You gave me so much to think about. The people in your life are truly lucky to have you. Again, thank you for sharing so many things with me today. You are an incredible person."
-M.S. coaching client
"Good morning! So far I have gotten 23 emails. I also have about 20 winks and about 8 guys favorited me. BTW, do I need to reply to everyone? LOL! I am getting WONDERFUL comments about my profile and my pictures. Thank you!"
-J.D. 41 year-old coaching client
"I am incredibly happy and wanted to share that with you! I also wanted to thank you for your help on this long but totally worth it journey! If this is what I've been waiting for for 30 years, it was worth the wait! You are fantastic and will help a lot of people! You already have!"
-N.W. coaching client
"We went out to my parents' farm on Saturday to celebrate my birthday with them....he proposed on Saturday afternoon and we were able to celebrate with my parents! So, I am thrilled to announce that I am officially engaged! We are so happy together and we have the same values and goals....somehow it has all fallen into place. We are thinking of a September wedding. Thank you again for your help and support through the process."
-C.C., 33, Washington, DC
"Meeting you was the highlight of my week. Your empathetic manner, charm, easy story telling ability, and sparkle is captivating. I came away so invigorated. Just to think of dating as a skill to be cultivated rather than a deficient element of my life was uplifting. I really enjoyed getting to know you. You are an inspiration and so obviously touch many peoples' lives. Thank you for what you do. Helping others believe in their own potential is such a gift to give the world. I would like to work with you!"
-Margie, 48 year-old coaching client, Washington, DC
"I had the pleasure of working with Michelle in her coaching program for three months beginning in August 2012. If you are thinking about working with Michelle, but are on the fence, just do it! Her advice was very easy to follow, although it was a completely different approach to dating than anything I had ever tried before. The most difficult part was stepping outside of my comfort zone. But, when I did, I went from being someone who went on one or two dates a year to going on three dates a week and sometimes even three dates a day!

I'd never tried online dating before, but Michelle's mix of tough love and consistent encouragement got me online. She has a delightful personality-high-energy and firm but encouraging. She's also a fabulous photographer, the pictures she took of me for my online profile were literally some of the best photos I've ever had taken! Some of the guys I met I clicked with others not so much. Eventually, I met a man who I dated for several months before deciding that the relationship wasn't right for me. Left to my own devices, I probably would have stayed in the relationship much longer. In the past, I'd often stayed too long in the wrong relationship, wasting valuable time.

I think the biggest benefit that I've gained through working with Michelle is that I enjoy my life so much more now. Working with her got me to get up, get out of the house, make new friends, and try new activities. I highly recommend Michelle as a dating coach. If you follow her advice, have fun, and really push yourself you will see the benefits. Expect an adventure!

Q: I’m 55. Can I participate in Boot Camp? How old will the other women be?

A: Yes. If you have to miss a call that’s okay - I’ll be recording calls for anyone who can’t make it. If you need to miss any of the sessions, please let me know, and I’ll do my best to help you make up the material. We can work it out!

Q: Is online dating part of boot camp? I’ve dated online before, and I’m not a fan.
A: If you’ve dated online without success, you simply need a better strategy. I’ll teach you the best ways to meet quality, commitment-minded men, and online dating is one of them. So yes, you will be dating online. But with my successful smart online dating strategies, your experience will be totally different this time.

Q: Can I pay with a credit card?
A: Yes, you can. I use PayPal for registration and using your credit card is an option.
