I grew up in the Bay Area and have lived in Los Angeles and New York City and have observed dating trends, complaints, frustrations and experiences over the years. From discussions with friends, and discussions with strangers at bars and restaurants to working with clients over the years through photos, profile critiques and styling efforts, I have gained unique insight and crafted a distinct approach to working with men and women over the years (press coverage).

Clients typically come from large cities mostly from the U.S. (NYC, LA, SF, San Jose, Chicago, Austin, Seattle, Denver, Portland, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington DC) but also overseas (London, Sydney, Melbourne, Stockholm and beyond) from ages 25-55 but I have worked folks younger and older than that. I blend data-driven methodologies while leaving plenty of room for exceptions to the rules, corner cases and things that cannot be quantified easily.

My approach is to take a deep dive at your life, assess your upbringing, social circles, work life, past relationships, first impressions, communication styles, hobbies, interests, grooming, hygiene, wardrobe, piercing, body art, hairstyle, location, demographics and lifestyle choices to assess favorable attributes and point out areas for growth. I highlight blindspots, unearth biases, find ways to help you meet people organically and help you become more comfortable in your own skin.

In my past career as an analytics professional, I worked with assessing various data streams, competing priorities, various stakeholders to explain anomalies, identify trends, provide recommendations based on various risk levels and cut through the noise to deliver actionable insights while building foundations for better foundations for collecting information, analyzing it and acting on it more quickly and easily.

If you have read my blog, I am pretty cut and dry, I am not a cheerleader nor a salesperson, nor rely on my charm or looks to sell myself. Friends and family can be biased and unwilling to be brutally honest with you. They have context that strangers don’t. Other coaches and therapists tend to blow sunshine up your ass – that’s not me, I am not a motivational speaker.

My methods don’t work for everyone, and I do my best to screen out such folks early and often. I reject over 70% of inquiries to work with me as I don’t care to work with people who don’t want to work with me, are not willing to work on themselves, nor I believe I can’t help. Check out the overview of my services below. Contact me for an initial consultation.

Eddie Hernandez - San Francisco Professional Photographer

Dating Coach For Women, Successful, Educated Women

My focus is working with women in bigger cities, women who are highly educated, those that are working professionals, executives and accomplished career women. The skills needed to save for a home, get into B-School or Law School, get a fancy job or get that promotion are not the same as those needed to succeed with dating.

Ability to screen profiles, read people, cut off time wasters, be patient, ID red flags, be more vulnerable and avoid narcissists and manipulators are several areas we will cover in these sessions. Women need more than cheerleading friends who are often biased and unable to be brutally honest with them.

Whether it’s on dating apps or fine-tuning organic ways to be more visible offline and surround yourself with more quality men, we will assess what you have done thus far, highlight blind spots, isolate areas for improvement and make sure you are signaling the appropriate things about yourself.

Dating Coach For Men, Introverted Guys

Having worked most of my adult life with engineers and tech geeks as an analytics and strategy nerd myself, I will do a deep dive into your life to assess hobbies, interests, eye contact, body posture, grooming, hygiene, manners, communication skills as well as vocal intonation, improvising small talk.

Dating is just not about knowing how to dress, what to say but more so how you carry yourself, what makes you different and your ability to sell yourself. These are not hacks but long-term efforts to diversify your hobbies, interests, improve lifestyle choices, and get you out of your shell.

Being successful, tall and in-shape means nothing if your attitude is terrible, you ignore deal-breakers, use pick-up lines or lack social skills. If you are short, person of color, a bit quirky or nerdy, this is for you. More info here.

Dating Profile Critiques, Help With Setting Up Dating Profile – Dating Profile Service

Doing well on dating apps is more than just uploading a few photos and writing a few words. There is lots of self-sabotage on dating apps when it comes to swiping etiquette, app choice, paying for premium services, photo choice, photo order, prompts, bios, captions, liking vs commenting and timing.

We will go over pros and cons of each app, assess which one is best based off gender, lifestyle choices, privacy, demographics and timing. The goal of these sessions is not necessarily to get more likes or matches but rather obtain better quality matches even if it means being more selective and receiving fewer matches.

I will coach you on how to analyze people’s photos, decode their dating profiles, do background checks, understand algorithms, review your messaging techniques and show you what their dating profiles signal. More info here.

Offline, In-Person In The Field Coaching, Mock Dates

One of the more unique offerings, I am one of the few coaches that offers to meet with clients in person. Whether it’s analyzing live dates from a distance, helping you to understand where to sit, what to order, how to position yourself, and how to make subtle gestures to get noticed and have men talk to you, my in the field sessions will open up your dating options beyond just apps.

My focus will be on curating lists of places to explore, when to go, where to sit, how to become an expert in certain domains so you can feel more comfortable and confident about navigating conversations in person and helping to adjust dialogue habits that can be conversation ending.

From being more enthusiastic, present, engaged and focused, you can get out of your covid cocoon, I will re-introduce you to people and places around town so that you can feel more confident and happy on your own so that others take notice.

Men’s Image Consultant, Styling Services For Women

First impressions are everything. Wearing Northface vests, yoga pants, company t-shirts and dressing like you are still in college is not going to cut it in life. If you want to be noticed on dating apps, at bars or professionally among your colleagues, you need to dress the part.

These sessions will assess your demographics, what you what to convey, what you want to attract all while factoring things like budget, personality, body-types, skin tone, lifestyle, routines, industry, work functions and social life.

Sessions can do done virtually or in-person and may involve shopping but will help you become a better shopper by helping you take better notes, how to anticipate sales, where to shop, how to save time online and how to stand out from others. More info here.

Online Dating Photos, Candid, Natural Photos For Bumble, Hinge

If you hate taking photos, need new photos or often say you look better in person or on dates, this is for you. Friends and family can be biased about photos as they have context that strangers on apps don’t.

Don’t fall for other photographers who re-purpose portraits, modeling photos and stiff photos. Dating profile photos are more organic, candid and imperfect. While other photographers use generic backgrounds, staged setups and blurred backgrounds that are obviously professional, I take a more natural approach like a friend took photos (but one who knows what he is doing).

I offer sessions with my DSLR or Google Pixel 5A phone. I am the most discreet photographer you will ever meet. Sessions are taking in public spaces that don’t draw attention to you or me whether they are bars, hiking trails, lookouts, cafes, restaurants, social events, concerts or photos taken at home and common spaces of residences.

Dating Apps vs Matchmakers, Do Professional Matchmakers Work?

Matchmaker Reviews, Photos For Matchmaking Services, LA, NYC, SF Matchmakers

I have worked with matchmakers in various capacities over the years and many of them hide behind opaque contracts, vague promises and unrealistic goals (read my mention in the NYT).

I will help assess whether matchmakers are right for you, questions to ask them, what the trade-offs are between using them vs dating apps vs meeting people in person.

Don’t waste 5, 6 or 7 figures without coming prepared and doing your due diligence. I will show you how to find reviews that are hidden, help you understand where they find their clients and dates, what they can and won’t do when it comes to background checks and how to avoid wasting your time with dates that you are clearly not interested in.

How Much Does A Dating Coach Cost? Is Hiring A Dating Coach Worth It?

Some coaches charge an hourly rate from $100-$200/hour and some charge $5,000 or more with packages and subscriptions. Before signing any contract, make sure your coach is in alignment with your personality, lifestyle and approach to life.

Some coaches offer stiff packages where they funnel you through modules or strict structures. Some coaches offer bad advice that is hard to uncover. I recommend researching coaches on Reddit.
