And let me say, that Michelle is one of my favorite clients ever. Always good-humored, always confident, always present — and, most importantly, always coachable, Michelle saw instant results in working with me. And after dominating and losing respect for her last guy, she craved the attention of a man who was a little more alpha. She got him — and she got all the problems that come with being with such a man. Although Mark treated her great, he was still very much a MAN.
But all relationships have their challenges, and Mark and Michelle were no different. While I was coaching Michelle through the first four months of their relationship and intermittently in between , I cautioned her to NOT put any pressure on him about getting married and having kids.
If he did, she would have a lot more leverage when the baby talk came up, as opposed to trying to extract an answer out of him in the early stages of the relationship. This worked like a charm.
Because really, it was no secret that Michelle wanted to be a Mom, and since Mark was a man of integrity, he wanted to do right by his girlfriend. He agreed, last July, to be the future father of her children. Then he changed his mind a few months later. True love will find you sooner rather than later — as long as you prioritize your love life.
I was sad for Michelle, but very proud at how she handled herself. Most importantly, from our work together, Michelle knew that her future husband wants to be a dad, and thus, she had no regrets about walking away when she did. Turns out that her breakup only lasted for one week. Her playfulness, her sexiness, and yes, even her attitude and mood swings.
Which is as it should be. And while I give Michelle credit for becoming the woman that no man can ever leave, Michelle actually gives ME credit.
I asked him why he had a change of heart and finally came to this conclusion. I feel so relieved and at ease with it all. Evan, you taught me to be playful, lighthearted, patient, kind and compassionate. Michelle I love Michelle and I love this story. Know that this is within your grasp and that true love will find you sooner rather than later — as long as you prioritize your love life like Michelle did.
