Life is too short to spend it alone

 You've worked hard and found success. But that's no fun without someone to share it with.

  • Do you believe there are no decent men left out there?
  • Are you attracted to edgy, sexy guys but find when it comes to relationships they don’t meet your needs?
  • Do you lack confidence in your own ability to attract the right man?
  • Do you find it impossible to fancy nice considerate men?
  • Have you tried online dating but find yourself wasting time messaging and meeting totally unsuitable men?
  • Are you exasperated about where to even find good men?

If your answer to any of these questions is “yes” then I know where you’re coming from. I’ve been there and I can help!

The Good News is You Can Find a Great Partner!


It is totally possible to find a great partner for long-term happiness, to be with that guy who can share in your dreams and have your back.

The Dating Evolved Academy is packed full of science-based advice and support to provide you with a REAL and PROVEN path to finding the man you need. AND you'll have a fabulous community to keep you motivated and accountable on your journey.



This is THE community for smart women who are serious about forging a realistic, scientifically informed path to find the man they need for a fabulous, secure relationship.

Why Listen to Mairi?


I’ve been where you are now!

I’ve spent a long time as a single mum, on my own or getting into relationships that didn’t work for me. But eventually I began to realise, given that I’ve spent the last 15 years researching and writing on human behaviour, that I should take a more scientific approach.

The Science Works!

So I started applying my knowledge of the biology and evolutionary psychology of mate choice and dynamics to my relationship decision-making, with the result that I’m now happily married to a wonderful man. If I’d stuck with my old relationship habits I’d never have given him a chance and wouldn’t have discovered what a total gem he is!

So now I want to help you find the love of your life - as I have, and I’ve developed this course to give you the tools to do exactly that.



  • How to build your confidence and enhance your openness, desirability, and probability of being approached or messaged
  • What sort of qualities are REALLY important to find in a potential partner
  • How to come to desire a GOOD man
  • How to select a partner on the basis of their ability to meet your needs
  • How to side-step “players”, “scammers”, or simply men who aren’t ready for the kind of relationship that will make you happy
  • How to write your online dating profile in a compelling way to be a filter for the men you don’t want and magnet for the man you need
  • How to handle early dates and co-create the spark
  • How to set your pace and boundaries to get the kind of relationship you want
  • Where and how to meet the right kind of men

What women are saying about Mairi’s work:

"I’ve recently completed the 7 weeks of the Dating Evolved course and it has been absolutely phenomenal! I can honestly say I have met the love of my life – my soul mate and it really is all down to what I’ve learned on this course. Thank you Mairi – I have never been so happy x "
Nancy Harvey, 52

"Armed with Mairi’s advice I signed up to an online dating site and did pretty much what she suggested and I was amazed – all these men came back to me wanting a date… I met Chris and 10 weeks in we're still together and very much in love!"
Jane Rayner, 54

"This course delivered on all its promises and more. I have to say I could not wait for the next week and I felt so empowered and happy after each session. And I am now dating a wonderful guy!"
Adele Needham, 60

"The course has taught me how to actually desire the man I need, rather than simply relying on chemistry, and I’m putting the advice into practice! I’m currently seeing a lovely man, seeing where it goes and simply enjoying the journey. I would so recommend this program!"
Shona Hotson, 59

"Thank you to Mairi and all the dear ladies in my group who encouraged me and led by example. I eventually signed up to online dating for the first time ever. One of my likes from the first day or so online has developed into the start of what could be a lovely relationship. I don't think I could have made this progress without having done the Dating Evolved course and ongoing monthly support group."
Flora Keevil, 60
