The Short Version: Rebecca Perkins knows a thing or two about relationships. She has a decade of experience in the dating coaching and matchmaking space and is the Founder of Irresistible Dating — an agency on a mission to give singles the confidence necessary to make meaningful connections. Rebecca, along with her photography expert Saskia Nelson, thinks of herself as a dating cheerleader — delivering a customized approach clients need to up their dating games. Whether you’re looking for advice on how to get into the right dating mindset or capture the perfect profile photo, Rebecca and Saskia can help.
The internet has become one of the most popular ways to find love in today’s world — as nearly 25% of Americans now use dating apps and sites to meet potential matches. The reason for its widespread use is it works. In fact, more than a third of married American couples have met online.
However, this success doesn’t always come easy. The continually changing sites, apps, and expectations in online dating can be overwhelming, and some singles find it difficult to stand out and attract the right people.
That’s why Rebecca Perkins and Saskia Nelson teamed up to create a solution: Irresistible Dating. The agency operates with the central goal of building up its clients dating foundations — whether that means coaching them about confidence or helping them develop an effective dating profile.
“Some people come to me specifically for coaching because they’ve read some of the blogs I’ve written and realized they’re not having great success” Rebecca said. “They may have a profile written that’s just not working, so I’ll book sessions with them and have transformative conversations.”
Rebecca told us the approach at Irresistible Dating isn’t about following a script. Each client’s situation will dictate the services and advice provided.
“I’ve got no rules or preconditions about how it’s all going to work,” she said. “But, as soon as they start talking, I can point them in the direction of what will be most helpful for them.”
Part of what enables Rebecca to connect with her clients so easily is that she shares similar experiences with many of them. When she found herself single at 45, she quickly discovered a lot had changed in the 20 years she had not been on the dating circuit.
Armed with her positive, can-do attitude, Rebecca rolled up her sleeves and began to navigate this brave new dating world. She had fun and met some great men, but she hadn’t found “The One.” What she did find, however, was a fascination with what people wrote in their profiles. After a few years of dating, she enlisted a friend to help her rewrite her profile, and, within weeks, she met her match.
Rather than keep all her innovative ideas and success to herself, Rebecca built everything she’d learned into a business to help others. The experience and insight she gained from going through the process herself gave her the ability to see the challenges modern dating presents through her client’s eyes.
“I found online dating really challenging, especially trying to stand out from everyone else online,” she said. “I got my writing hat on and created what is known as an irresistible dating profile, and it was a completely different way of writing a profile. You show; don’t tell. It dawned on me that maybe other people would like to learn how to write their profiles.”
Rebecca then joined Saskia Nelson, who brought a new and totally needed genre of dating photography to life. Saskia intuitively knows the exact sort of images that get the best feedback and uses her talents to create them for her clients. Together, Rebecca and Saskia help singles build profiles that get them noticed.
Whether you’ve been dating online for a while or are just joining the scene, confidence in yourself and others can get a bit shaky. Rebecca said coaching can be essential to driving positive results.
“I’m passionate about helping get people into the right mindset for dating,” she said. “You can have a great profile, but if your head is not in the right place, you doubt yourself. Some are convinced there are no good people out there. If that’s where your head is, that’s what you’re going to find.”
Irresistible Dating’s coaching sessions can help you strengthen your self-esteem and rediscover your mojo.
Rebecca works with clients in many areas beyond self-esteem building. She also helps them establish core values, which is not only important for life but also leads to greater success when dating. She also told us she doesn’t let her clients procrastinate — either in dating or life, in general.
With her one-session clients, Rebecca focuses on must-haves and dealbreakers in a relationship. She helps reframe limiting dating beliefs and creates a vision for dating futures that you can get excited about.
Clients who need a bit more coaching can benefit from Rebecca’s six-week program. This takes you deeper into self-awareness and confidence building. Not only do you go over what you need in a partner and create a plan for the dating future you desire, but you’ll also get a clearer understanding of where you are in your life journey.
If you’re guilty of having a sparse bio or so much information that it’s overwhelming, you may need Rebecca and Saskia’s profile help.
Rebecca will help you craft a profile that’s irresistible and authentic by focusing on a show-not-tell philosophy when describing yourself. She’ll start on the ground floor by helping you create your username, headline, and profile summary. Once complete, she stays along for the ride to ensure your profile is getting results.
For clients who are a little more DIY or don’t have time to schedule one-on-one sessions, Rebecca offers an online program that will help them write their profile at their own pace — with many of the same techniques she uses during the personalized session. If you’re looking for a committed relationship and haven’t been happy with your results so far, this is totally for you.
As a compliment to profile writing services, Irresistible Dating offers online dating photography. Saskia heads this department and is more than qualified to lead you to love.
Saskia delivers two different services: The first is a professional photo shoot that creates eye-catching, authentic photos. While professional, the photographers take photos that look like those your friends might take — where you look relaxed and happy, not posed or uncomfortable. After your shoot, you’re given the best images for your profile, only lightly retouched, in a digital file.
If you’re too busy for a photo shoot, Saskia offers an alternative. Send her 10 pictures of yourself, and she’ll help you choose the best of the bunch. Then she’ll edit and lightly retouch the images and send them back. After working with Saskia and her pros, you’ll truly have a profile that demands attention and may just be so good that, as Rebecca says, it’ll break the internet.
If you’re among the growing number of singles turning to dating websites and apps for love, the process doesn’t have to be daunting. Irresistible Dating was founded to make it easier. This is exemplified in the personalized support and comprehensive services Rebecca and Saskia provide.
However, the duo doesn’t stop there. The Irresistible Dating blog houses a ton of information daters can source to learn online dating best practices and get tips from the pros. With their practical advice, they can deliver the results you’re looking for.
The agency is effective at what it does, and a big reason for that is the passion Rebecca and Saskia pour into their work.
“I just love it! Even if I didn’t have to earn a living, I would still do it,” Rebecca said. “Humans need love and connection. If I can play a small part in that — in helping someone reconnect with themselves and fall in love with themselves — and then show up in the world a different way where they are more open about meeting someone else, that is the best job in the world.”
