"David is, quite possibly, the most talented and versatile speaker in America!"
But, don't take our word for it... check out the following testimonials, reviews, and awards. We think they speak for themselves! Sometimes, it's okay for people to talk about you!
"I believe that you motivate people to make changes in their lives more than you know. You have the ability to plant a seed of encouragement within someone's spirit in an instant - it is a life-changing experience.....I ought to know, it happened to me. The impact you had on me from one performance was life-altering. Through watching, listening, and speaking with you, your presence left an indelible mark upon my life within moments of meeting you and I simply will not be the same from that day forward. Thank you."

"Thank you so much! You were absolutely amazing tonight during your show here at Virginia Tech. Honestly, I went tonight as a joke (at first) thinking that you were going to be another guy lecturing us on how we are all insecure and retarded (def. don't deny it); however, then I walked out completely happy. It was wonderfully done. Thank you!"
~~Rachel Bare, Virginia Tech
"I have to admit, I never listen to the radio, and by chance I did this morning, and you were on the air. You were so RIGHT with the advice that you gave the young lady "Angela" on the air. But I believe that what a lot of people overlook is that now a days, it's pretty much the same for both Men and Women. I find myself feeling the same as you stated: "He won't want a life with you, until he sees that you have a life without him." I, as a woman, find it much more attractive when a man wants to be in a relationship where you are not "co-dependant" on each other. Independancy is very attractive. Keep up the good work! The world needs more people like you."
"You put 375 of our students in the seats and none of them were required to show up--that simply doesn't happen here!"
~~Jason R., Washington and Lee University
"I have seen over 100 keynote speakers in my life, and David is honestly in the top 5. His message was clear, funny, concise, and didn't put me to sleep like the majority of speakers. When you've heard as many as I have, you get to the point of "if I've heard one of them, I've heard them all", but David brought so much more. His energy and stage presence is amazing, and I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone."
~~ Rebecca T., Grand Valley State University

I am in awe of how immediately personable you are and how great that makes everyone feel. Most people come in, do their programs and leave. You make a lasting impact because in the midst of great information and an ability to get people to think beyond themselves, it's obvious that you truly value and care about the people you meet. That makes all the difference and has endeared you to so many of us here!
~~ Jennie T., University of Central Arkansas
Once again, my students and staff raved about you and your program. You cover so many important and timely topics with such fun mixed in, that students don't realize just how much they are learning!
~~ Jeanette C., The University of Texas at Dallas
Congratulations! You drew over 300 people on a Thursday night, during mid-terms at Dartmouth and captivated them for an hour and a half. This is unheard of! We wll definitely have you back!
~~ Melissa and Cynthia, Panhellenic, Dartmouth University
This is the best dating advice I ever found on the Internet. I wished I had read it much earlier. I would be reaping its fruits now. It is informative, reassuring, direct, accurate and very lively. I'm going to recommend it to many of my friends who need a "cure for their common relationships."
~~ Ben, North Carolina
A little over two hours with Dave changed my life. I now have a completely new outlook regarding myself and relationships after listening to him and speaking with him afterwards. Dave is an incredible speaker and person. He keeps the audience interested, and makes you wish the clock would stop or go in reverse so that the session wouldn't end!
~~ Joe S., Albany, New York
I attended David's program at Siena College. It was an eye-opening experience! I never knew or considered half of the information he shared. I've been in a relationship for a year now, and just recently things have started to go poorly. After reading more on his web site, and taking notes from his program, I've decided to change some things, not only with the way I think, but how I treat the relationships and others in my life. Thanks so much Dave, you've shown and taught me a lot!
~~ Adrian, New York
I first heard you on the radio, and now look forward to hearing you every Wednesday morning. I make sure my friends remember to listen too! I have some questions to ask about my new relationship. I would much rather ask you than a shrink because you are so down to earth, direct and sincere. I think your show is great!

I heard David Coleman speak at St. Louis University, and it was by far the best presentation of any kind I have ever heard and I have been to many. I am in the midst of a long distance relationship right now, but after hearing what David had to say, I realize that we are heading in the right direction. I read the columns and FAQs on his web site, and they have helped me make sense of what I'm going through. He is a God send.
~~ Dave, St. Louis, Missouri
David Coleman is a genius! I am involved in a long distance relationship, and recently read his column. It has helped me so much! Everything he wrote is amazingly accurate and so true. It was eerie. I read the column every day to keep in mind his tips on keeping a long distance relationship and what factors cause them to fail. I want to thank him for his candor and advice.
~~ Jen, Missouri
I just received David's book, Date Smart! in the mail this weekend. After hearing so much about it on a local radio station, I can't put it down! Almost everything in that book I can relate to. I was looking for a good relationship book and this one ranks as excellent! Keep up the good work!
~~ Jody, Michigan
I just wanted to thank you again for everything! All of us had an amazing time talking with you and, of course, your show was a BIG hit! All day long people have been stopping me and saying great things about last night's program. We were honored to have you speak on campus and stay afterwards to hang out with us. You are the first speaker I can ever remember here at the University of Michigan where people stayed and didn't walk out. That never happens here! Congrats!
~~ Lia O., Ann Arbor, Michigan
Your book, Date Smart! - I just have NO words to describe the relief I feel now that I actually took the time to memorize the title and run to the bookstore and buy it. I saw a woman reading it at the beach on Sunday (about a year after my horrific break up) and she never put it down all day. So I thought, if this lady is that intrigued then it must be "all that." So I got it the next day and let's put it this way, that book is MY BIBLE! I am in a serious relationship now, but always go back and remind myself how much more I know now about men and myself because I read it. I would love to have an encyclopedia of just your books and materials.
~~ Bianca, Miami, Florida
Your web site is a breath of fresh air. There are so few people willing to offer insightful wisdom with clarity to the singles of the world.
I attended your dating seminar and EVERYTHING you said was so honest and right on. It was great to see that other people have gone through the same crap that I have! This has definitely changed the way I look at dating and relationships.
~~ Erin, Virginia
Every time I visit your web site, I find more truths about my relationships. I love my boyfriend of 3 years very much, but some of the details you share and comments you make - make me think that maybe I should be more aware of what is happening in this relationship! Thank you.
~~ Stacy, Oshawa, Ontario
"The Dating Doctor" was the star of the semester at Bradley University! More than six weeks later, students were still talking about his presentation. The buzz was and is, "Were you at the Dating Doctor?" David made it "cool" to be at an on-campus, informative, educational and hilarious program. No doubt his email and web site is burning up from the BU student terminals from those writing with interest, curiosity and hope. He just might be the perfect "All Greek system educational speaker!"
~~ Nathan T., Bradley University, Illinois
David Coleman is one of the premier lecture entertainers on the college circuit today! Students at Barry University are still talking about the Dating Doctor and his Relationship Program - and it has been over 3 months since he was here! Dave's enthusiasm, knowledge and direct approach with students instantly make him someone students want to listen to. He is current in his information, powerful in his presentation, and fully engages the students with his highly interactive program. Students have such a great time that they do not realize how much they are learning - about dating, about themselves, about each other, and about life!
~~ Tim B., Miami, Florida
I recently attended your "Making Relationships Matter" presentation at BACCHUS in Orlando. That's the second time I've heard you speak and I just can't get enough. Each time I leave feeling more confident and much much happier than before I entered. People might forget what you said. People might forget what you did. But people will never forget how you made them feel! That's your special gift... you make people feel good about themselves and that's something that no one can ever get enough of. Thank you so very much!

Thank you so much again for coming to Kansas State last night. We all really enjoyed the program! I had a headache ALL NIGHT from laughing so hard! :-)
Thanks, and safe travels,
