What Millennial Dating is Missing with Kristina Persson from "Can't Get a Text Back"

Uncategorized Aug 29, 2021

Kristina Persson is a Dating & Relationship Coach who specializes in helping millennial women manifest happy relationships, WITHOUT having to spend hours on dating apps.

On the Gumball Love Podcast, Kristina and Melissa chat about what they often see millennial women doing wrong in dating that is keeping them from finding true, lasting love.

They discuss masculine and feminine energy and how it plays a role in dating, why the thought "I don't need a man, I'm an independent woman" is actually not so healthy, how to balance being a sensual woman with holding off on sex in the beginning stages of dating, and more.

With the Delta variant on the rise, it's been highly requested to do another episode on online dating and how to navigate it, so I'll be answering some of your questions!

Online dating can be so overwhelming with endless options of people. A lot of times, we go into it when we're not ready, which can make things even worse.

  • How to filter out the low effort guys and focus your attention on high quality men so you don't waste your time

When Should You Have Sex with Him?

You're having a fun night on a date, or maybe a night out, and it's come to that moment when you're wondering whether you should go back to his place or have him come back to yours for sex or not.

While I can't make this decision for you and would never try to, I do want to give you a few questions to ask yourself before making the decision and to really think about. 

We'll also talk about the real reason why guys ghost after sex-- it's often not having anything to do with you, and everything to do with them.

What Men Want: Why Most Dating Advice is Crap

Enter the search term "dating advice" on Google or Youtube and you're bound to come across listicles or videos with titles like "10 Things You're Doing that are Turning Men Off" or "The Number One Mistake Women Make in Dating".

From this day forward, I want you to STOP consuming content like this. It's crap!!

1. You're never gonna find the holy grail of "what men want" because all men are DIFFERENT just like all women are different

2. This type of advice does not teach you how to have a deep, intimate relationship..it teaches you how to catch the attention of shallow men

3. The pick up artists who sell this advice never speak from personal experience and are almost never in successful, healthy relationships themselves. 

Forget it all!! In this episode, I break down how to discern the crap advice from the credible advice that actually helps you find true, committed love.

How a Small Town Girl found her Passion in Saigon, Vietnam with Dana Drahos, Women's Nutritionist

Dana Drahos was a young 20-something working at an advertising agency in New York City in 2018. The dream, right?

Not so much for her. After just 2.5 years in corporate America, Dana knew that there must be more to life than dragging herself out of bed every morning to go to a job she hates, working till 11pm, getting drunk regularly with coworkers at happy hours, and repeat. 

She had no clue what else she wanted to do for a career, but she couldn't ignore this burning desire to live abroad. Finally, she resigned and found herself teaching English in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam, where she's been living for the past three years.

Since then, it's been a wild ride of teaching, starting a podcast called Creators in Saigon, becoming a podcast manager with Melissa as her first client(!), and now just finished a Holistic Nutritionist and Health Coach certification and discovered a burning passion to help women relieve their PMS symptoms through natural and holistic...

What Does it Really Mean to be "Ready for Love"?

How do you know if you are "ready for love"? The depiction of love and romance in Hollywood movies certainly sets the wrong expectations for us around what healthy love, dating and relationships look like. After many years of dating and relationships, learning from the mistakes, and finally meeting the love of my life at age 43, I share how I knew I was ready for love.

Below are some key questions to ask yourself:

  • What's the intention behind you dating right now? Is it out of boredom or loneliness? Or pressure from friends and family?
  • Are you happy and fulfilled in your life right now?
  • Are you who you truly want to be? Are you embodying the best version of yourself?
  • What exactly are you looking for in a partner? What do you want and need?

How to Break Free from Toxic Thought Patterns

You may have heard someone say at some point in your life, "thoughts are things."

This saying took on a whole new meaning for me after listening to The Ed Mylette Show episode with Dr. Caroline Leaf. Dr. Caroline Leaf is a neuroscientist, mental health and mind expert and if you're not following her on Instagram...what are you doing!!

I'm already a huge fan of her work but the way she just explained this concept about thoughts really blew my mind and I had to hop on the mic and share with you guys!

Basically, when we are thinking, you can actually SEE with a microscope something physically forming in the brain. And it looks like a tree! The thought starts, and that's the trunk of the tree, then as you think more thoughts related to that, the trunk grows branches, and the branches grow leaves. 

AND..the trees can shrink and disappear as you don't continue to dwell on those thoughts.

If you're like me, sometimes anxious thoughts and worrying about false realities can keep...

The Subtle Yellow Flags You're Missing in Dating

Uncategorized Jun 10, 2021

We hear a lot about red flags in dating, and often they are centered around what the guy is doing. Whether he's sending d*ck pics, he leaves you on "read" for days, he doesn't have any friends, etc.

At this point, these things are pretty obvious. But what about the more subtle yellow flags we tend to miss? These are less related to what he is doing, but how you are feeling when interacting with him.

Taking a moment to pause and tune in to how you are feeling can give you massive clues as to who this guy really is and whether or not he's worth your time.

 

And I don't mean just feeling sad or happy...nah, we're going to dig way deeper than that.

Are things hot and heavy, intense, passionate? Do you feel really sensual and sexy? If it's too early on, you're likely dating an "Arouse Me" Gumball Guy.

Are you feeling like you're really interesting and entertaining one second, and the next you can't hang on to his attention and you start to worry you're boring him? You may be...
