What is The Dating Directory?

Ahh! every woman wants the fairytale, the handsome prince, the dream career or perhaps the white picket fence with 2.5 children ( if that’s even possible?!) . It seems to be a strong but delicate feminine desire that becomes a part of our making and life because we are just that…woman.

In a world of broken relationships, excess baggage, role reversals and the ever impending pressure to be thinner, prettier or more successful than the person next to you, it becomes a battle and instead of thriving , we only just manage to survive.

This is a site dedicated to every woman, girl, or chick out there who feels like you are alone or doing some sort of battle. Think of it as a nice big pot of tea (or bottle of wine!) where we can all grab a cup, sit down and talk, share, laugh and cry about the joys and woes of being romanced and being woman in the 21st Century.

Who is The Dating Directory?

Renee Slansky is an Australian  TV presenter , writer and motivational speaker , and who’s love for romance and heart for women has compelled her to start The Dating Directory . From a young age she started leading and counselling women and was often called on by strangers and friends for relationship advice. She now writes for some of the largest online dating sites and magazines in the world including The Huffington Post, The Good Men Project, Your Tango , Plenty Of Fish , eHarmony and more. She can be heard on the radio or seen on TV regularly, sharing her tips and teachings. Her writings offer a witty and relative outlook with practical advice on life and romance in the 21st century.

 I was born a romantic, always envisioning my perfect Mr Darcy riding in on a white horse with his top 3 buttons undone revealing a bronzed chest. Oh, I had it all planned out, and of course when you do that , nothing actually ever goes to plan and all of a sudden you’re flat on your bum in your skinny jeans that cut off the circulation, thinking what the hell went wrong?!

I’ve visited “Square 1” enough times to consider building a home on it, I’ve climbed ex-boyfriends fences and cried on bathroom floors at popular night clubs (for embarrassment purposes we shall bleep the names!) I’ve been loved, hated, revered and ostracized. I’ve been at the top of Success Mountain and tumbled down to the bottom again and again. I’ve dated men with children, men who carry baggage, and men who…well…just aren’t man enough.

I am just like you, woman to the core. And it is my passion for every woman to live a joyful life, to live in their full potential. So let this site be a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen too or a place to laugh knowingly! You are not alone.
