A firefighter living in Los Angeles, 31-year-old Andy Burke has never been married, but has put many hours into the dating game. As an attractive and successful man, Burke has had women of all demeanors express their interest, which has given Burke a very unique insight into what works and what doesn’t work when a woman is trying to get a mans attention.
Although he has not settled down himself, his two older brothers and close core of friends have all married, which has given Burke a great perspective on what makes a successful relationship work.
Burke has already passed his knowledge on to enough men and wants to concentrate on answering female readers questions to help them along the way of their dating lives.
Like Burke, Matten is also a firefighter in Los Angeles. Living as a woman in a male dominated field, she’s seen at work as one of the guys, which works to her advantage as she’s gotten the opportunity at a candid view from the males perspective on the dating world.
Before joining her firehouse, she wrote an advice column in her university newspaper, which gave her a great perspective on the confusion people have about love and dating, which she’s avidly working towards clearing up for women around the world.
After growing up in Arizona, Ward moved to Los Angeles to pursue a writing career. After landing his first job with Entertainment Weekly in 1997, he’s worked his way to being one of the most respected relationship and interpersonal relationships in the South West.
Ward first started contributing to WomenFindingMen in early 2011 when he was invited to write a guest blog about the benefits of online dating. The feedback he received on his first article was so extensive that we invited him to be a permanent contributor to WFM, a position which he has warmly accepted.
