Just Between Us – Being Successful in Love Has Everything to Do With Being Smart

When was the last time you received really solid information about dating, love and marriage?

How much have you depended on the (old) beliefs and (outdated) ideas about love and marriage that came from your parents and grandparents?

If you are like the vast majority of people in North America the answers are probably (1) never; and (2) a lot!

Good people try hard, and do their best to find the right person and build the happiest marriage they can.

But trying hard doesn’t cut it!

You’ve heard me say so many times that Love is Not Enough. That’s why the divorce rate in North America is pushing 50% and it isn’t far behind in the UK and Australia. And the new cultural phenomenon is not to get married at all! Did you ever imagine you’d live long enough to see more people co-habitate than marry?

Today, I want to focus on how to be SMART in love and relationships. And to help me explore what SMART means and how to be SMART I have invited Dr. LeslieBeth (LB) Wish to join me and explore some ways to do just that.

My guest today is Dr. LeslieBeth (LB) Wish, Psychologist & Licensed Clinical Social Worker and the author of The Love Adventures of Almost Smart Cookie and her newest book, Smart Relationships: How Successful Women Can Find True Love. LB helps women get Emotionally Brave and Smart in Love & Work. She is regular columnist and an Advisory Board member for, one of the top ten health web sites in the world.

Join us for an engaged and powerful conversation.
