One -on-One Coaching

Dorinda says, “My 1-on-1 coaching is a “Done For You” profile but you also get guidance with opening lines, messaging and responses, first date do’s and don’ts, hype-man advice,  and style advice. I also include a self-care course that brings out your confidence with dating.”  (8 Weeks of guidance)

I wasn’t getting a lot of matches with my social media dating apps. A friend of mine suggested  NXTConnection.  I was unsure about it- but thought, why not give it a try.  I met with Dorinda for my one on one consult. She was very friendly and we bonded over a wide range of conversation and topics.  Little did I know, she was focused on who I was as a person.  She would later show me I was not my natural self in my profile.  We went over things step by step starting with my pictures, written description, and my dating goals.

Overall, My matches have increased since using NXTConnection. I highly recommend at bare minimum, the consultation.   J.R.

Here’s a sample of Dorinda’s advice on PROMPTS:

Some dating apps have a feature called prompts.
Prompts are conversation starters and get-to-know-you nugget questions that an app such as @hinge provides. Prompts also are additional knowledge into who you are on top of just a biography.
An example of a prompt can be: A random thought I had this morning. . . . .
A good prompt on Hinge can inspire good creative answers as well as responses from potential suitors. An unpopular opinion can stir up good conversation and banter. A good prompt can invite an opening to be random, quirky, unique, insightful, bold, or humble if done correctly.
Basically prompts are ‘get to know me better’ questions before even using your swipe on a person. To that I say,  “Bring on the prompts!”

Testimonials from Annie

I heard about Dorinda through a friend who heard her give an elevator speech about her business and explain how she helped people go into online dating successfully. I love to date and want to meet my person but dreaded the thought of even writing a bio or learning to use a dating app. I felt like any attempt would be canned and corny but meeting guys wasn’t going well either.  My friend recommended I at least do the 15 min free consult and see if we could even work together. Dorinda was bubbly and cheerful and I got excited as I caught her enthusiasm. I tried to be very blunt and tell her exactly what I was looking for and she took it all in stride. She was excited and already had recommendations of apps that might fit me best. Over the next 5 weeks, I had weekly meetings with her as I wrote her a wishlist, talked about past relationships, and did homework to make my profile the best it could be (more photos!) One thing that both surprised me and I appreciated was this was much more about me then I thought. Dorinda focused on what I believed about myself and made me work through the lies that directed who I dated. She set me up with a bomb profile on 2 apps that look so good! Thank you for that huge push of courage, know-how and reminding me I’ve more than got this!   Annie

Personality Flag Art Project

Just like a state flag tells something about the state, your personality flag will tell something about you. If you are teaching a class, this is a great project to help you to get to know your students.

What will you put on your flag? An object? An animal? Your favorite dessert? A quote or verse? A picture of a musical instrument?


  • Watercolor paper
  • Watercolor paint
  • Brushes
  • Water
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Eraser
  • Magazines, pictures, calendar pictures, and books for ideas

Step 1

Use a light pencil line to divide your paper into 5 spaces like this:

This image visually describes the way to divide up the page.
What objects, animal, quote, or food will you choose to tell me something about you?

Step 2

Choose what you will draw in each space.

Beginning of layout
Lightly draw your ideas and begin painting your flag.

I recommend starting with a favorite animal, as this is often an easier decision.

Student has painted a tiger eye.
This student is both bold and mysterious as shown by the tiger’s eye!

You do not have all 4 spaces drawn in before you begin painting. I have found that this project tends to come together best one space at a time.

In beautiful writing, the Bible verse Eph 4:32 is written.
This is one of my favorite verses.

For verses or quotes, you can use your computer to try out different fonts and arrangements to find a pleasing layout. I had fun finding this fancy “B” in a calligraphy book. I used a light watercolor wash behind it, to look like it was written on parchment.
