Date coaching is like having a personal trainer for your love life. You probably do OK on your own but working with an expert can help improve your dating life or help you find exactly the type of relationship you want. From teaching about relationship dynamics to discussing the "pink" and "red" flags you may encounter while dating, JALBC focuses on helping our clients find happy, healthy relationships. We don't play "the Game" and there's no "Mystery" in our method - just honest and straightforward methods that are guaranteed to increase your dating success.
Workshops are group consulting sessions (2-4 people) offered at set times throughout the week. Workshops can be held at either the JALBC office in River North (we have a great venue and a fantastic 3D TV) or at a local coffee shop, pub, or restaurant.
The "Triple C" Dating Workshop: This workshop is designed for ladies who want to rock their dating life. If you're someone who's a savvy dater (meaning you go out on a lot of dates) but have a hard time getting him to commit — this workshop is for you. The 2 hour workshop starts with an intro of relationship dynamics when you first start dating (we'll tell you things guys would never admit) and then touches on Mel's "Triple C" method. The last 30-45 minutes of the workshop are spent addressing each attendee's questions.
The Anxiety-Free Approach Workshop: This workshop is designed for gentlemen. If you find yourself having a hard time approaching women (or understanding them) than this workshop is for you. The 2 hour workshop starts with a brief intro on women, and what they truly want and touches on the basis of attraction. (Nope, its not what you think!) You'll get nuts and bolts advice that you can apply immediately and see your dating life improve. The last 30-45 minutes of the workshop are spent addressing each attendee's questions.
The Only Online Dating Lessons Session: This workshop is designed for both men and women who use online dating to try and find their significant others. (Men and women's workshops held separately though!) Three things are taught in the online dating workshop: how to write an online dating profile, how to read one (people are way more honest than you realize) and finally, how to convert online interaction to real-life dates. The 2.5-3 hour workshop is limited to 4 people — after the group chat, you'll also get help writing (or re-writing) your online profile to best showcase you (and help you get exactly what you want).
Most workshops are held on weekday evenings and weekend afternoons. To attend a workshop individually, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. To set up a PRIVATE workshop for you and your friends (minimum 3 people) please call 773.963.1316. (Discounts apply for groups.)

What happens when you mix a science nerd and a social dynamics expert? You get Mel and her keen eye for chemistry. Although she didn't originally plan on matchmaking, working with so many passionate singles committed to finding love, it only made sense to put them together and voila ― relationships ensued!
Matchmaking is a three step process ― you'll first need to fill out our profile sheet and send in a picture, then, submit or questionnaires (nope, they're not the ones you see on eHarmony), and finally, the face to face interview.
Unlike some other matchmaking services, we want this to be accessible to everyone and so JALBC has three tiers of matchmaking services available. Please call the office or e-mail email@example.com for details.
