Are You A Relationship Train Wreck?

How To Fix Broken Relationships
by Darryl L. Mobley, Life Coach
I know a person who’s smart, attractive, and one of the best friends you could have.
She’s always a hit at my parties.
Everybody who meets her loves talking with her.
She likes to travel, loves good food, can take a joke, likes good times, and has an engaging personality. I find her to be a really good person.
But, she has always had a hard time getting serious relationships to last very long. And, in full disclosure, she was previously married.
Yes, she gets lots of dates.
But, her relationships don’t last very long before the wheels come off.
Several years ago she called and asked me out to lunch. Her treat at my favorite pizza joint. (Of course, I accepted. It’s always the right time for a great pizza slice!)
So, after the small talk, she told me that she wanted to know why her relationships didn’t seem to last. She told me that she had just begun a new relationship with a person she thinks is “the” guy. She was open about how much she wanted to be in a great relationship. Some of her exact questions to me…
“What’s wrong with me?” “Do I come on too strong?” “How do I fix relationships?” “Are my standards too high, or too low?”
I asked her several questions. I probed past, present…
Finally, I told her, since she’s was a friend, that I’d be straight with her.
I told her…
“You don’t know how to get into and sustain a great relationship. You don’t know what you’re doing! You are a Relationship Train Wreck.”
She was shocked by what I said.
She told me that she read relationship books, magazine articles…to learn about guys. She also frequently chatted with her girlfriends to get insights into how guys think and how to fix her relationships.
I asked, “How would you describe the relationship between your Mother and Father?”
I also asked, “Which of your girlfriends is currently in a 100%, no-doubt-about-it, fantastic relationship?”
After hearing her sheepish answers, I told her that she wasn’t alone.
I let her know that over the past 20 years, I’d dealt with hundreds of couples who were unhappy in their marriages. She needed to know how to develop a great relationship and how to fix relationships before they went haywire.
I’ve developed a way to quickly fix subpar – even horrible – relationships. I invited her to try my 10-Day Relationship Turnaround program and to let me know how it worked for her. She did.
That was 6 years ago. My friend is very happily married to the guy that she thought was “the” guy. They have a couple of kids. When I meet with them they seem to be really in love. I’m happy for them.
