I’m Michelle Valentine.
An advice expert specializing in
dating & relationships, an author
& advice columnist, a TV talk show
host and dedicated friend to
talk & listen to.
I was born to talk on the telephone! I’ve created the love of talking on the telephone and providing advice into a media empire that helps millions around the world!
Through my one-on-one phone sessions… to my nationally-airing TV talk show… my popular online dating book… over 200 advice columns published in newspapers and magazines… and speaking engagements around the world… I help individuals get through the tough world of dating and maintaining great relationships! I’ve answered over 100,000 questions so far, and I create immediate results with numerous Success Stories to show for it!
People always ask me,
“How in the world did you
become an Advice Expert?!”
As a baby, I started talking unusually early, and I loved my red telephone!
As a teenager and lover of Ann Landers, I wrote my first advice column, “Dear Pinky” (Pinky was my high school nickname) for The Belmont News. This was a one-page “newspaper” I created for the block I grew up on. I paid 10 cents per page to make color copies at the local supermarket.
After high school, my goal was to get a job while attending college that would allow me good income while having a flexible schedule, so working as a manicurist started my love of holding someone’s hand while listening to their problems!
After completing my degree in Psychology from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, I moved to the land of sunshine…
I pitched an idea for an advice column to the Orlando Weekly newspaper about a column for the love-lorn. They loved it!
“Dear Michelle Valentine” was born, which created a media explosion in Florida, as the advice column attracted new readers and advertisers, and brought in so much money for the newspaper!
While writing my weekly advice column (also published in the Orlando Sentinel, East-West Times, St. Pete Weekly, and Orlando Me Magazine), I began conducting seminars and workshops at local libraries, helping my readers in-person to find love and lasting relationships.
Within a year of writing my advice column for the Orlando Weekly newspaper, I pitched my idea – and received a TV deal for my own weekly TV talk show, which premiered in Orlando, Florida on Time Warner Cable. The dating & relationships TV talk show, the “Michelle Valentine Show” was very popular and grew to airing in over 1 million households across the state!
I became a “media darling” and numerous other TV & radio news stations (BBC radio, Fox TV, etc.) wanted me on their shows to provide valuable advice to their viewers and listeners!
In 2014, the “Michelle Valentine Show” was licensed to TV markets nationwide, and still airs in select TV digital markets (check your cable listing for times).
“Michelle Valentine learned to light the spark of passion, not just in herself, but in others as well. Her success in creating a world-class service helped her to a clear understanding of how to help others build powerful relationships of all kinds.”

During all of this, I received a book deal, and my online dating advice book, “How to Find Love Online: Secrets, Tips, and Lists for Getting the Best Response” catapulted my popularity around the online world as an advice expert.
As a published Author, I was invited to speak across the United States at various Barnes & Noble and Borders Booksellers (and numerous other venues), which then grew to speaking around the world aboard Royal Caribbean, Princess, and Celebrity cruise lines.
I eventually launched my own international dating service, providing dating advice, matchmaking, and singles events (dances at country clubs, parties at nightclubs, sporting events, speed dating, etc.).
While I have created thousands of relationships as my time as a Matchmaker, my true love has always been working one-on-one with my clients, helping to solve their dating dilemmas and then helping them to maintain great relationships. I love working with individuals via personal Date Coaching, phone and email dating & relationship advice, and creating educational courses and books. All my courses and books are at my online shop, “Michelle Valentine’s Shop“, which also offers Dating Fashions for Women & Men; Romantic Gifts; Dating Books, Movies, and Games; and Romantic Home Decor & Holiday.
My husband and I celebrated our 2-Year Wedding Anniversary June, 2019. I followed my own dating advice and met my husband online a few years ago. We got married aboard a cruise ship with 50 of our closest friends and relatives from around the world. We live in Florida in a beautiful ocean-front home on the Gulf of Mexico, and love watching beautiful sunsets together. I am blissfully happier than I have ever been in my life, and I want to help you get the life you’ve been dreaming of, too!
