Bio

Rebecca Strong is a Dating writer at Elite Daily, where she writes about everything from breakup advice, the single life, and celebrity engagements to dating app etiquette, relationship conflict resolution, and wedding planning. Rebecca's bylines have also appeared on AskMen.com, HuffPost (Women, Healthy Living), Eat This Not That, and U.S News & World Report (Education). After receiving her bachelor's degree in media studies at Emerson College, she pursued her master's degree from The Boston Conservatory at Berklee. When she's not nerding out on Myers Briggs/Ennegagram, psychological studies, and dating topics, she's typically writing songs on her keyboard with a hefty pour of Riesling nearby (her first album, Sink or Swim, was released in January 2019). She also has a penchant for TV shows that focus on impossibly charming and relatable murderesses (see: Big Little Lies, Dead to Me). And when she needs to get her aggression out regarding the misogyny of the modern world, she'll either be kickboxing or strength training. You can follow Rebecca on Instagram at @bex.strong and learn more about her music at www.bex-music.com.
