I’m June Em: a writer, speaker and coach who helps men and women in their late 30s, 40s and 50s who are single again after the end of a long-term relationship and struggling with meeting people they truly connect with.
It may be a crazy world out there for singles, but once you learn to navigate it and set yourself up with a solid inner game, dating can actually be better the second time around and lead to deeper, more authentic experiences than you’ve ever known before. How do I know this? I am living proof.
“What you talkin’ about Willis?”
When I became single after the end of a 12-year relationship at the age of 43, I was clueless about dating and the opposite sex. Attracting the wrong people? Check. Boring dates that went nowhere? Check. Not knowing what the hell I was doing wrong? Check. Check. And Check.
After one lack-luster date too many, I’d had enough! I read dozens of books on dating, relationships, and gender intelligence, followed experts, attended workshops, and put all this advice to the test on over 100 dates in real life.
I still screwed up on occasion, but I eventually got my dating game in serious order. I was having incredible experiences meeting amazing people. When I talked to other singles, however, most didn’t exactly share my enthusiasm.
That’s why I started this blog, wrote my book – Love Lessons from a Lap Dancer – and ultimately became a dating and relationship coach.
I share what works and what doesn’t so that you can more easily get what you want in a relationship.
Today, I have an amazing partner and I continue to learn as we grow in our relationship together. But I never would have found him if I hadn’t first learned how to discover what I really wanted, date with confidence, and, above all, be true to myself.
