Our Origins...


Hi there!  I’m Jamie, a 40-year-old single woman who lives in Asheville, North Carolina with my five (yes five!) dogs and foster pit bulls.  I’m a licensed clinical social worker, and have a therapy practice here in town – not to mention some contract positions I maintain.  Sounds like a lot, right?  It is – but it’s fun too!

Like I said, I’m single.  I’m busy.  I work independently, so I’m not going to meet anyone on the job.  About a year ago, I decided to give up on dating apps.  The incessant swiping.  The ghosting.  The breadcrumbing (these are actual terms now, as sad as that may be!).  It’s all just so exhausting and discouraging.  I decided that I would leave love up to fate.  If it happens, great!  If not, well that’s okay too!  I decided to focus my energy more on building friendships and fulfilling my life in other ways.  Through this, I’ve met so many other badass singles who feel just as confused by today’s dating world as I do. So this got me thinking - THERE HAS GOT TO BE A BETTER WAY FOR PEOPLE TO FIND LOVE!! 

One of those badass singles is Amy.  When I talked to her about my idea, she was super enthusiastic and jumped on board head first!  Here's what she has to say: 

"Hi!  I'm Amy and I handle the majority of the social media for Date.Play.Love.  I have a degree in Information Technology and am finally putting it to use doing something I am passionate about...helping others!  I was honored and excited when Jamie asked me to be a part of the team.  I am a hopeless and hopeful romantic and want everyone to find the love of their life. I am also a little bit of a social media junkie and am in awe of the power of it. I think it's the perfect vehicle to reach our audience. I love finding content that is relevant to the people we hope will become success stories." 

We are both super excited to welcome you to Date.Play.Love and hope to see you at our next event!


Date. Play. Love.
