“Since I came to you for dating coaching, I met someone on Match and we’re getting married next Month! Talking to you definitely kickstarted meeting my spouse for which I’ll be forever grateful. I am definite proof that the work you do is worthwhile.”

“I just wanted to thank you for helping my daughter to find her man.
They are getting married in May.

Before she saw you she had tried lots of the free apps and dating sites without success.. A while ago she sat on my sofa crying and said “mum where is this man I have everything I want, a successful career but no man”. I always reassured her that he was out there but she hadn’t met him yet.

I wanted to help her, it was upsetting as her Mum to see my adult child so distressed because she didn’t have a partner, so spent an afternoon searching the net for a Dating Coach and found your site.

With your help she found her partner and has never looked back.

From a Mum thank you so much for helping her find that special person, she is a very happy lady.
I paid for the sessions with you and I assure you it will always be the best value for money I will ever spend in my life.”

Ann S


“I chose to work with James as he seemed very genuine and honest so after my first call I knew right away I had made the right choice. The sessions are great banter but also professional and you can trust James with your ideas and goals.

James is very good at helping to set up a profile and reaching out to people to set up dates. I Iearnt a lot during my time working with James and it’s helped me find my current partner and things are going great.

Thanks James for all the help”

Conor Smith


“Thank you for all your advice. Just thought I’d let you know, I took your advice and sent multiple messages a day on Hinge.

I got many replies and have 3 dates lined up in the next week with potentially more for the week after!”



Having always met long term partners via friends, the idea of online dating a stranger with no link back to a friend, left me feeling overwhelmed.
Online I discovered coaching for dating and James which was a revelation to me.
His warm, professional and respectful approach was clear from the start.
He helped with set up, how to respond to approaches and provided practical tips on how to constructively navigate this new world.
After many hours of frustrating searching, a few dull first dates, I finally met someone for a casual walk/coffee and voila… the “one”.
Six months later and very happy :))
I tell every single person I meet to go to James and avoid the torture of navigating dating alone.
Follow his advice and always be your true self and you too will find your “one”… Good luck x

“James has helped me a lot. He helped me see the good in me, and improve as a person and clearly has a lot of knowledge on the dating world which was a complete mystery to me.”

Andrew S


“I started working with James a few months ago as I wanted to get my ex back. We’d fallen out and weren’t even talking so it was really difficult task.
James was incredible. He put together a plan to help me start over with her. It took a while but she eventually agreed to meet and we slowly started to rebuild things. James and I spoke on a weekly basis, using his dating expert knowledge to help me know exactly what I needed to say and do.
We’re back together now and it’s all thanks to James. I can’t believe it actually worked as I thought it was a lost cause!
I can’t recommend James highly enough – whether it’s as a Dating Coach or if you want to get your ex back too! “


Stephen B


“James has helped me in a way I never thought possible. I thought I was doomed in terms of relationships but his careful considered approach opened a whole new light, and proved that it is definitely possible to change for the better. I notice I’m not just getting better every day with women and relationships, but in everyday interactions and with an inner peace with myself. I thoroughly recommend James Preece!”

Charles S


“Thanks to James’s help, I now have the most wonderful girlfriend and couldn’t be happier. He showed me how to build real chemistry on dates, something I’ve always struggled with. James is someone who’s a real expert in this field, a great teacher and above all, a genuinely good guy who I would recommend to anyone wanting any sort of help in the romantic department.”

Richard N


“James was fantastic at encouraging me to give online dating another go.  I tried online dating on and off for four years, with no luck.  James helped with the online profile and sending out messages.  Finally people started to respond!!  James made the whole process easy.. and successful!  The first guy I met following James’ help has resulted in  a happy relationship.  A big thank you!’.”

Amy J


“Now I have more interest from women than I can handle.  James IS the Dating Guru!”

Tom Michaels


“Speaking to James helped me to cut through all the nonsense and saved me months of wasted time and tears trying to interpret mixed messages from a guy who was just not relationship material.  Since working with James, I’ve felt empowered to make better dating decisions and to choose men who bring a bit more to the table.  I can’t thank James enough and I’m now (very happily) dating someone new”

Sara-Jane N


“Having taken your advice on approaching people I have been totally amazed at the difference it made”

“I have been busy employing your methods on the internet. I wish I had known about this years ago! It seems to work and have actually had responses from guys”

Claudia B


“James was fantastic at encouraging me. I started working with James a few months ago.  I was in a bad place and had split up with my girlfriend. Things were really bad for me and I didn’t know what to do, but James helped me put together a plan to sort everything out.   I never quite believed I’d get her back, but I followed James’ advice and we are now back together stronger than ever!  I honestly don’t know how I’d have managed without him! “

“When we met in February you changed my profile on Eharmony. 1 hour later a vicar emailed me! We had a whirlwind romance, and got engaged 2 weeks ago. :). Thank you very much for your part in the story.”

Karen S


“I approached James six months ago for help and advice in relationships in the age of social media and online dating. My long term marriage ended with divorce and I was left not knowing how to be single again, now as an older woman and parent. James’s knowledge, experience and straight forward approach are what I needed and I am now in a relationship that I am happy with. I have learnt a lot about myself and gained confidence. I cannot recommend James enough.”

Myra R


“When I first went to see James I was fed up with dating, the online dating and going on dates that were just a waste of my time! The advice and guidance he gave was fantastic and completely changed how I was dating and my attitude towards it. Two months after first meeting James I met the most amazing guy and now have a really great boyfriend. I really would recommend going to see James as it really has changed my life for the better!”

Katherine S


“I read a lot of what you said in your dating articles . I’m 58 with a bad back , can’t work. I had women between 29 to 45 fight for my attention.  I got it all from you , I can’t tell you thank you enough.  I’m moving in with a 37 yr old professional fashion designer.She is so beautiful and kind. I had to get through a lot of scammers to find her , but in 6 weeks of reading your articles  I found her . Thank you again!””

B Wyse


“I contacted James as I really didn’t understand the world of online dating and was quite frankly petrified! He helped me with my profile and then walked me through the process of talking to and meeting people. James really knows his stuff and his help has been invaluable. Thank you!”

Lori Mcpherson


“Thank you James. I have a success story for you as I have just got married. If it wasn’t for you I would’ve been in a different mindset. You made me think is a different way, changed my behaviour and be more open to finding love and knowing how to recognise when the one is the one.”

Sarah S


“James gave me the motivation I needed to push me I the right direction. And with this, also came the belief I needed to show me that it is possible to get the result you want with the right guidance.”

Michelle B


“Hi James … I just thought you should know … and I wanted to thank you … the online profile you helped me with … well … it absolutely worked! I met Stuart on 8th December and we are very much an item … he’s just wonderful and I’m so very happy. We are just about to go away on holiday together just us and he held my hand through a breast cancer diagnosis and mastectomy in March … he’s wonderful and we’re great together .. he often chats about my profile and how it caught his eye so a HUGE thank you for your support.”



“Just wanted to drop you a note to thank you. Over the last 3 months, I’ve been seeing a really great guy that I met on bumble and it’s going really well. It really helped chatting things through with you and clearly my improved bumble profile made the difference.”

James delivered an engaging and original workshop for 140 management consultants on ‘How to talk to anyone’. He was able to bring in his expertise as a dating expert and apply them to both building relationships in work, as well as in our personal lives! The feedback and interactions from employees was fantastic, already looking forward to working with James again.

We worked with James for the home entertainment release of Bridget Jones’s Baby. For the release we wanted to work with a dating expert to discuss dating in your 40’s, general dating tips and Bridget Jones’ (the ultimate single woman) dating skills. We hired James due to his impressive portfolio and reputation, he was a natural when it came to interviews! He carried out media interviews discussing the film and dating with Love Sunday – Sunday People, Daily Star Sunday, LOOK, Fubar Radio, The Huffington Post, How To Kill An Hour (Podcast) and several BBC regional radio stations. Following the interviews, James also hosted a Bridget Jones inspired seminar for men and women to come along to listen to him speak about the relationships in the film and again general dating tips. This was followed by a Q&A. James was fantastic and professional throughout and we can’t recommend him enough! He put his own time and effort into researching further into the film and all of the crowd at the seminar (70 men and women) were all delighted and had a great evening. We would definitely work with James again!

We hired James recently to give an interactive talk, utilising his expertise as a dating expert to demonstrate how customer service reps could learn from this when approaching clients for the first time. He was a great speaker and planned his session with great attention to detail. We enjoyed working with him.

James recently attended a sales workshop and shared his expertise into the art of conversation with us. James was very well prepared, addressed the brief fully and is an engaging speaker. He inspired us with his tips and insights into dating and how they can be applied to sales – this included methods to increase confidence, motivational and even body language techniques. We would definitely consider working with James again, highly engaging and an expert in his field.

James is a true professional. He has a weekly dating clinic where he gives expert dating advice to our callers on talkRADIO – the UK’s most exciting new speech station. Not only is he giving great dating advice, he is a great broadcaster and I would trust him to present any type of radio or tv show that I was producing. I would recommend him to any broadcaster or producer needing a top notch expert for your show.

James is consistently my first port of call when I need a man’s eye view of the dating scene for GLAMOUR magazine. His insight is always current and credible, fully tapped into the psyche of today’s men. He’s also friendly and fast, which makes a journalist’s job MUCH easier!

He is the Dating UK expert for my company, and each task he takes on is always refined, credible and relatable to our readers. I find his style of writing is spot on and helpful to those seeking dating advice. James is always open to new ideas and delivers great quality content without delay.

I’ve worked with James on a number of PR campaigns, both when we was a client of mine and signing him up to work with other clients later on, and I can’t recommend him highly enough. He is rare in that he ‘gets’ PR and is able to perfectly balance what the media want from a quote or interview, with what you/your clients need to achieve from a messaging POV whilst at the same time delivering his unique and interesting insights into relationships and dating, which are always relatable and newsworthy.
