It was very interesting talking to Dr. Walsh after realizing that I, like most that have been in relationships 10 years and up, needs a little revamping in the relationship department. It is important to take time with your spouse and spend quality time with him/her on an everyday basis.

She currently is author of The 30 Day Love Detox, which is a book that is a ground breaking prescription for slow-love!

** Dr. Wendy Walsh’s  approach to relationships turns traditional thinking on its head by using evolutionary psychology to offer advice that is both empowering and practical. The 30 Day Love Detox is unlike any relationship book before because it helps women better understand themselves and their mating strategies. 

In The 30-Day Love Detox, Walsh offers a step-by-step, five-part attachment strategy, with a 30-Day “detox” that helps weed out the bad boys and set women up to meet the right guy, including:

  • How to purge junk-food men
  • The five sexual myths that keep women single
  • When to begin the onset of sexual activity in a new relationship
  • The biggest mistakes women make when dating online-and how to avoid them
  • How to spot a commitment oriented man at his “state of readiness

    I have set it time and time again – I could not do dating nowadays. Her advice is spot-on, but it seems like so much work to meet someone! Glad that these tips will help women find “Mr. Right”

    The key message is once you get a relationship, the real work first starts! If you want a happy ending you have to work for it.
    thanks for the reminder!
