How To Attract The Relationship You Want with Tracy McMillan

Dear Shandy

Have you been seeking marriage or a longterm relationship but find it eludes you? Have you ever wished someone would just give you the honest truth about what's up? Today's guest is the famed straight-shooting relationship author, Tracy McMillan. Tracy shares what she believes the single biggest mistake people make when it comes to dating, why she thinks FWB arrangements aren't a good idea, and her thoughts on masculine/feminine energy in a dating climate which, unlike a mere decade ago, forces women to pursue. Whether you're in a happy relationship (in which case I promise this will have you nodding in agreement) or you're single and looking (or not!), Tracy's perspectives on human behavior and relationships are as satisfying as they are insightful.Tracy McMillan is a television writer, relationship author, and was a matchmaker on NBC's Ready For Love. Her viral Huffington Post article, "Why You're Not Married" is Huffington Post's most-viewed article ever (!!) and it inspired her subsequent best-selling self-help book, "Why You're Not Married... Yet". She has appeared on Oprah and Dr. Phil among many others, and her Ted Talk titled "The Person You Really Need To Marry" has over 16 million views.More TracyInstagram - https://www.instagram.com/tracymcmillanBuy Her Book, "Why You're Not Married...
