I met Dr. Frankie in an unlikely place for me–a bar. My friend and I just happened to be looking in as we were walking in an Oakland neighborhood. Dr. Frankie came up to us and asked whether we would like to participate in speed dating. She was friendly, enthusiastic, and warm, but not pushy. While I couldn’t join the speed dating event that night, I got an immediate good feeling from Dr. Frankie. After trying the online dating scene for some time and not knowing how to approach dating after the end of a long-term relationship, I contacted Dr. Frankie and began working with her as a dating coach. She is positive, upbeat, and has many practical and useful tips for meeting women. I also find her background as a psychologist a definite plus to working with her. She has very good insight, and I felt like she “got” me very quickly, and so can tailor our sessions to work with my unique needs.
