Is it Anxiety or Gut Instinct?

attachment styles Nov 22, 2021

Wondering how to tell the difference between anxiety, your gut instinct, and anxious attachment style? This episode is for you!

Often times our gut instinct is SPOT ON...telling us to GTFO of a sketchy situation or to not go on the date with that guy. But sometimes, our anxiety or anxious attachment style overruns our instincts. 

Our anxious feelings are often coming from past lived experience, and it's our body's way of warning us and trying to keep us safe. But sometimes it's just that..PAST experience, not something currently happening in reality, meaning we could be missing out on a good, genuine guy.

I have anxious attachment style and anxiety, and I was VERY anxious about my love in the beginning, and it makes me sick to think I could have lost this love if I didn't get a grip and understand the difference between my anxiety and my gut instinct, and to also learn how to cope with my anxiety and how to make myself feel safe.

In this episode, we'll cover:

  • What is anxious...

Are You Marrying Him Before You Meet Him?

You come across a profile online...he's so cute, his dog is cute, you share the same hobbies and interests, you're hitting it off in the DM's, next thing you know you're fantasizing about your wedding and how you'll become bffs with his sister and wondering if you'll have Thanksgiving with his family or yours.

What He's Thinking When He Ghosts You

ghosting Nov 10, 2021

What the heck is going on with ghosting?! It's becoming more and more common with my coaching clients so I wanted to address my view on what's really going on behind the scenes when he ghosts. Hint: It has nothing to do with you.

You had a great time with him, he's what you wanted, and now he's not texting back at all, or he's coming back every now and again lukewarm.

What gives?! In this episode I'm bringing in my own perspective based on my personal experience and the experiences of hundreds of other women I've coached, plus the perspective of a few psychologists to really get the full picture.

A quick favor?:) I'm looking to hear feedback on the podcast- what you want more of, what you want less of, I'd love to know! Shoot me a message on IG or leave a review in Apple Podcasts. Thank you!

What If He Comes Back?

It can be so exciting when the ex or that guy you were talking to comes back around, saying how he's been thinking of you and missing you. 

But as soon as you start talking about yourself and what's new in your life, he's bored. Or he starts talking about this other girl he's talking to, or all these problems in his life.

As much as he said he's changed, these are very clear signals that things are still the same. In this episode, I talk about exactly what to look out for to see if this guy has really changed or if it's the same old Gumball Guy, and exactly what to say to get rid of him for good.

Q&A: Are Open Relationships Healthy? Can Exes Be Friends? Huge Age Gaps in Relationships?

dating advice Oct 04, 2021

In this episode, we're diving deep into some questions you guys asked me on Instagram. I'm sharing my take on open relationships and polygamy, 10+ year age gaps in relationships, can exes be friends, and what to do about dating burn out.

Have you been tempted by the allure of "open relationships" that everyone, including Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, seem to be raving about? If something feels off to you about it, it's because there is something very off about it. We'll talk about why people are drawn to this non-committed relationship (an oxymoron, yes) and why it just does not work.

An age-old question, can exes be friends? Are you still hanging out with your ex as a friend, or maybe you're dating someone who is friends with their ex and wondering if it's reasonable to be upset about it? There are basically two situations were it's ok or even unavoidable, but outside of that, it's not a great idea, and we'll talk about why!

Lastly, are you totally burnt out from date after...

How to Filter like a Freak

I used to put up with all the red flags. I'd let things slide because I didn't have the belief that I'd ever actually find a guy...since I'm tall, opinionated and financially successful. 

This scarcity mindset hugely backfired! It kept me stuck in the cycle of dating Gumball Guys for years. The ironic thing is, all the things about myself that I was trying to hide, are the things my partner now loves the most.

This episode is to give you rapid fire the top things to look out for to know if you're dating or talking to a Gumball Guy, and to also remind you how important it is to BELIEVE. Believe that you are worthy, believe that there IS the perfect guy out there for you, and that you don't have to settle.

We also have a brand new workbook available to give you the full breakdown of all the different flavors of Gumball Guys and the red flags to look out for. Get it on the first page at gumballlove.com!

Navigating Love and Gumball Guys for Teens

Uncategorized Sep 12, 2021

Teenagers these days face unprecedented challenges when it comes to dating and relationships.

No other generation before them was raised in the world of social media (and now, social distancing).

With "we're just hanging out" and other no-labeling strangeness normalized, it can be hard to know if this guy you've been texting is really into YOU or just using you. 

In this episode, I'm breaking down how teens specifically can notice the patterns of Gumball Guys so they can break out of the cycle and save themselves a lot of hurt and heartbreak in the future.

So if you are a teenager, or you have one in your life who needs to hear this, please listen and share!
