Online Dating Success Stories
Cheers! ... I'm Andrea McGinty
America's Premier Dating Expert - Founder of 33,000Dates
I have been a leader in dating since 1992. That's when I founded ItsJustLunch.com, a dating service that went from one tiny office in Chicago to 110 locations worldwide. The catalyst? Being dumped by my fiancée right before my wedding!
My expertise and common-sense approach to dating proved to be a winner with my first marriage occurring 5 months later. Approximately 33,000 dates later, I have a great understanding of what women and men are looking for and the right strategy to date smartly and efficiently online. And I want to pass this knowledge on to you!
Founder of 33,000Dates
I have been the founder of several other successful businesses, but my passion remains helping people with their dating lives. I've been doing that since I was 14 years old and fixing up friends in high school and college.
Five years ago, I began writing dating profiles and coaching others when friends and family began dating online. I would roll my eyes at the photos and descriptions some of them used. As with most successful things, word-of-mouth grew about my practical, winning approach, so I decided to turn it into a business again!
In the 2020’s, I have become a firm believer that there is someone for everyone – it just takes the right strategy online with an incredible pool of singles. And, I'm a firm believer that dating should be fun, not work. In working with me, you will find my enthusiasm is not just about dating but getting to know and help you!
It’s not just my passion – it’s my life!
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
I hired Andrea to keep me motivated and focused on my objective---a long-term relationship. I knew there would be times I’d feel frustrated and it was great to have someone in my corner keeping me on track. Andrea took much burden off my shoulders and I actually had fun---then I met Brian in May 2022. Yes, Andrea is getting a wedding invite to our July 2023 wedding!

Online dating is like going into an unknown jungle with all kinds of wild animals, dangerous plants, and traps . . . but also gorgeous flowers, sweet animals and revitalizing pools. Andrea is the no-nonsense safety guide who does the briefing BEFORE you go in and then is also the guide who points out things along the way. Sometimes, she has to pick you up after a bad fall and dust you off. Now, imaging going into the jungle with NO guide or briefing . . . no wonder people have horrible experiences!

I was 3 years widowed and not sure where to start (or if I even wanted to). Andrea is always there for me. A great coach with a sense of humor, great response time and will find time on last minute notice for me. She has helped me through online dating struggles and given me great hope that I will find the love of my life. Hard to believe I’ve gone on dates after a 35- year marriage (very happy) and that I am actually enjoying the process and meeting quality women.

Working with Andrea was an absolute delight. I called you my “canary in a coal mine”, because with your vast experience you were able to really predict what was going to happen. That included my initial interactions on the sites and subsequent dates. You saved me a lot of time weeding out the chaff and with your help I was able to find the life partner who I plan to spend the rest of my life with.

I like Andrea’s energy the most - direct, lighthearted but no nonsense and very deliberate. You are also not clock-watching and it’s clear you sincerely care - it’s like talking to a girlfriend but one who is honest, objective and has undeniable experience that I can trust.
