She works with Mating in Captivity author Esther Perel on a variety of projects. She also collaborates with relationship scientist Dr. John Gottman and The Gottman Institute on articles and a video series. (The Emotional Bank Account and The Easiest Way to Improve Your Relationship.)

She started the Talks at Google: Modern Romance series, where she interviewed world-renowned dating and relationship experts. She discussed monogamy and marriage with Dan Savage and Esther Perel and the secrets to a happy marriage with Drs. John and Julie Gottman.


“My vision is to create a new cultural impulse where people stop endorsing the “happily ever after” fallacy and instead recognize that the hard work of love is in maintaining it, not just finding it.”

She’s written about dating and relationships for TIME, Thrive Global, PopSugar, The Forward, P.S. I Love You, and more. She was featured on several recent episodes of HBO’s VICE News Tonight about the #MeToo movement.

Her TED talk, Designing For Love, will be posted in Winter 2018.


“Logan brings a fresh and youthful perspective to the study of dating and mating, and behavioral psychology. Her keen pulse on the current relationship zeitgeist, her ebullient personality, and her generous collaborative spirit, are all values and traits that I value greatly.”
