Dating got you down?

Join us on The Sunnyside of love!

Courses, coaching, and community for those in search of love!

Dating sure can be frustrating, but we're here to help! Check out our offerings below!


Currently, we primarily offer courses for singles, polyamorous folks, or those in early relationships (basically, those who are actively "dating"). Check out our current roster of courses!

Looking for more relationship-oriented courses? We do have things in the works so sign up to be notified about future course launches!


Not interested in any of our group coaching? Need more individualized help? We take on a limited number of private coaching clients with packages starting at $1800 for 3 months of weekly coaching sessions.

At this time we do not offer one-off sessions, as we like to take a holistic approach and we know that change takes time.


Want accountability in proactive dating? Seeking advice? Looking for the latest trends in the dating world? Or just want to vent?

We are building a community of love-seekers to commiserate, cheerlead, and help each other through the best and worst aspects of dating. Click below to sign up to receive the community launch announcement!

Looking for a (f)unconventional way to meet other singles?

Apply to be a contestant on The Game Show of Love! Each episode, 6 singles play games and answer questions to get to know each other. At the end, if two people pick each other, they're a match! It's also a fun way to put yourself out there to a larger community, as audience members can ask out contestants too!

Emma Mankey Hidem is the creator and host of The Game Show of Love, an interactive dating game show, which she started in April 2020 as a pivot for her media production business, Sunnyside Productions, during covid-19.

The Game Show of Love created connection for people during an unprecedently lonely time and a community built up around the show. In her unexpected role of dating-show-community-manager, Emma hosted expert talks, lead discussions, and even ran a relationship book club.

As Emma dove further and further into the dating industry, she realized how much terrible advice was out there and she decided she needed to step up.

In her new capacity as a dating expert, she has been featured in Newsweek multiple times and on the nationally-syndicated tv show The List, to name a few.
