About NYAB

The Lady Bro Behind it All


Hi, everyone!  My name is Becca, and I created Not Your Average Bro in 2012 to show a different approach to modern dating.  NYAB is unique because it offers a combination of online dating as well as matchmaking.  When I started NYAB, daters either did online dating sites or met people in-person, usually at bars.  Over the last several years, dating sites and apps have taken off and have completely changed the dating world.  Dating has become more common, more approachable, but also more over-whelming.  I often see and hear about daters having dating “ADD” or dating “FOMO”, which makes it difficult to find a committed and monogamous relationship (if that’s what you’re looking for).

A couple years after staring NYAB, I got my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) to better understand relationship dynamics and why some relationships succeed while others fail.  I also gained further understanding and knowledge on how deeply rooted patterns from your family of origin or past relationships can impact your dating life as well as future relationships.  With my unique knowledge and interest in modern dating in addition to my educational background and experience, I take relationship and dating coaching and therapy to a different and deeper level.

I currently practice in downtown Chicago, seeing both individuals and couples, who are struggling with relationships, dating, and sex.  We could all use a little help in this department, amiright?  If you are interested in learning about my approach to therapy and coaching, contact me at my e-mail below, and we can discuss whether or not I’d be a good fit for you unique needs.

My articles on dating have been published on other websites, such as Thought Catalog, BroBible, Time Out Chicago, Men’s Health, and Humanthology.  Feel free to e-mail me at the link below if you are interested in having me write for another website.
