The cost of putting sex first in your relationship

Blog, Ms. Typed

In my book Ms. Typed: Discover Your True Dating Personality and Find Dating Success, I refer to a dating type called Ms. Sex Machine.  So who is this woman “Ms. Sex Machine?” When it comes to dating, she’s just a normal woman who settles for physical and sexual intimacy when what she really wants is […]

Love is blind!

Blog, Ms. Typed

Far too many women and men are living in relationships allowing their love to be blind and ignoring important information about their partners and their relationships.  In my book Ms. Typed, I call the women who ignore what they don’t want to see or know “Ms. Rose Colored Glasses” because they look at life through […]

My girlfriend moved away, how can I get her back?

Ask Dr. Michelle

I have been dating this woman for just about three years. We had a good relationship and I love her a lot. She wanted to marry me and gave me an ultimatum that if I didn’t marry her she was going to the west coast to work for her family. I told her that I loved her but the marriage thing scares me. She has been out there for six months now. I want her back so bad now and told her about a month ago that I want to marry her, but she says that the things she wanted in life have changed and she needs to further her self in life. I told her I made a huge mistake and I will do anything. I have a good job and have been with the same company for 20 years but I don’t know if living out west has made her see bigger and better things. I am not a cheater. I work hard but was just scared to get married again after a failed marriage seven years ago. I have never felt this way before about a woman. I told her how I feel about her and even called her mother. Do I now give her, her space? We use to talk almost every day. I don’t know what I should do. She tells me I’m too late. She struggled here with jobs and maybe I should have helped her with that more. She said to me that everyone thought she would fail out there but she is still there. What can I do? It’s hard not to cry when I talk to her. She said she doesn’t need to start a relationship. I have never seen her act this way before and be so cold.

In memory of Anjanelle

Blog

One year ago today I lost my mentor. It’s so silly because all of my life I always thought of her as my aunt and eventually my Godmother, but for the first time, today, I realize yet another thing she was to me. She was my mentor. Her name is Anjanelle McKinney Carter. It’s 4am […]

When is it too late to back out on a wedding?

Blog

Recently a famous professional athlete broke off an engagement two days before the wedding and in a radio interview someone asked me whether or not he should have gone through with it anyway.  Absolutely not!!  I don’t think it’s ever too late to back out on a wedding.  Is it wrong, hurtful and inappropriate? Yes, […]
