Dating can feel challenging, tiring and even hopeless. However, it’s important to know that you’re not alone and that it doesn’t have to be so hard. Listen to today’s show to learn how to navigate dating, keep your heart open and find peace with yourself. 

In this episode with Christiana Cioffi, we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • How to navigate the challenges of dating as you age
  • Learning to become happy with yourself in order to find happiness when dating
  • How to approach sexuality after not dating for a while
  • How to live a healthier life as a single person
  • Becoming comfortable with who you are
  • How to deal with feelings that you may not ‘have it’ anymore
  • And much more!

By day, a marketer in the biotech industry. By night, a dating blogger with a super-secret audience.

Christiana Cioffi found blogging to be a creative and cathartic process throughout her long and winding journey in search of love. From there was born An Unapologetic Spinster.

Prior to her biotech career, Christiana served as a captain in the US Army for five years, including two years deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. She holds a BS in management from the United States Military Academy at West Point and an MBA from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University.

Her professional awards and recognitions include a Bronze Star, a Combat Action Badge, and a Medical Marketing and Media (MM+M) Award. She is a breast cancer survivor, an avid runner, and a scuba diving enthusiast. Christiana resides in West Virginia with her geriatric cat, Ellie, and her rescue German Shepherd mix, Frankie.
