Press Reviews

“Sadly, the normal process of dating usually robs women of our most attractive, fall-in-love-with qualities: self-confidence, authenticity, and passion. Wendy Newman is out to change all that with a delightful wit, compassion, and humor. The judgment-free zone located within the pages of 121 First Dates playfully guides women through the dating process, while granting them the freedom and permission to find what they truly need in a relationship.”
