  • MEET STEVE DEAN

    DATING INDUSTRY CONSULTANT, RELATIONSHIP COACH, & SPEAKER

     

    Hi, I'm Steve. I started Dateworking in 2011 because I began to notice that our social, romantic, and professional lives were all becoming more intersectional than ever. We move to new cities and communities and turn to many of the same apps, tactics, and values to guide us. 

     

    I strive to explore, share, and create connection in all its live-affirming forms: finding new friends and communities; meeting new business partners and startup mentors; finding the right romantic partner(s); and most importantly, exploring and acknowledging our relationship with ourselves.
     

    Since 2011, I have advised, recruited, and consulted for dozens of dating companies, including OkCupid, CoffeeMeetsBagel, Hinge, Spectra, and Happy Hour. On the business side, I like to focus on competitive research, business development, user acquisition, team expansion, and my personal favorite: product/launch strategy. I want to see a world with dating apps we're proud to put on our home screen.

    Today, as a dating and relationship coach, I love working with individuals who want to make meaningful inroads across all the different spheres of relationships in their lives.
