Donna barnes life and dating coach
“Quite frankly, the truth is there’s no guaranteed way to get your ex back,” Donna said. If your ex wants to come back, that’s the only way they’ll come back.” In Donna’s private coaching practice, she helps her clients get out of their own way so they can get in a relationship.She told us the story about one single man who was adamant that he couldn’t date a woman who was religious.Over the last few years, Donna has made an impact on the dating scene one conversation at a time.
Some of Donna’s clients have been single for a while and want to get out of their rut, while other clients are recently divorced and don’t know how to adapt to a dating scene now littered with sites and apps.
She lived in Manhattan and found work as a catalog model. “I started reading everything I could get my hands on because it was the only thing that made me feel better — I had to figure out what had happened.” Ultimately, Donna decided to just be single for a while and focus on her career.
She became well-known among local model/actresses, and she navigated the social and dating scene with easy confidence. She had never felt such profound sadness over a rejection before then, and she said that experience gave her a lot of compassion for singles recovering from breakups and going through heartaches. In the early 2000s, a friend introduced her to a producer who was making a documentary about several single and successful women in New York City.
“Right now I’m investigating doing group chats on my You Tube channel because I think it’d be really helpful to get people talking about dating and giving each other guidance.” Donna currently facilitates an active dialogue in the comments section of her videos and in her advice blog, but she has her sights set on fostering a real-time conversation among her online audience in the future.
Through her You Tube channel, she plans to set up weekly group chats where singles can commiserate with one another and inspire one another.
