LeslieBeth (LB) Wish TEDx 2018


I’m so glad you stopped by to learn about my most effective “tried-revised-and tested” ways to help you with your love life. I’ve created this page where you can return often to review tips, view new ones-or learn about the two ebooks that are coming soon! This page will also include videos and blogs so you can learn many things about love and relationships—and about training your love intuition to be accurate.

My newest “coming attraction” will be my TEDx talk that I will be giving in May in Wilmington, Delaware. I am so excited—and so honored to have been chosen. My topic is: You Can’t Always Trust Your Gut When It Comes To Dating and Mating.

While we are waiting for my TEDx Wilmington video to be loaded, here is a photo of me at the end of my TEDx Wilmington talk.

In case you are wondering: Who is she? Here is what I think are the most important things to know about me:

1. I’ve been a licensed psychotherapist for decades. I have two undergraduate degrees, two master’s degrees, a doctoral degree, and three years advanced training in marriage, relationships, and family.

2. I’ve counseled thousands of people. I’ve always been especially drawn to issues that I need to understand better. And if I don’t believe that I have enough understanding or solutions for my clients, I do research so you can trust my advice.

3. I can help you answer your relationship questions such as:

  • How do I know if my partner is good for me?
  • What are the signs of a healthy relationship?
  • How do I know for sure that I should break up?
  • How do I risk falling in love again after a bad relationship? Or after being widowed?

I’ve learned from my research participants that to be happy in love, you have to be emotionally brave enough to:

  • Face and forgive yourself
  • Feel your fear—but keep going
  • Flourish as your best self
  • Fine-tune your intuition so you can rely on it to be accurate.

We love helping others learn about making wise choices in their intimate relationships. All our tested–and retested–tips come from our research with hundreds and hundreds of women. We hope these brief, free videos with tips address some of your concerns about dating, mating, and relating, as well as grief, loneliness and recreating your life.

Oh–and some of them refer to workshops or programs because they were useful during our research. Watch, enjoy and learn!

Reading People

Reading People Accurately

Reading people requires that you master the ability to detect the important things that your date or partner says or does–including those nonverbal signs. This brief video is a starting point for detecting important signs in you–such as changing your dating goal from finding The One to Reading People.

Reading People is a Necessary Skill

One tip for reading people is to know your own intuitive reactions to your dates and mates. This brief video gives you advice on how to detect your emotional, intuitive responses.


The Importance of Liking YOU in the Relationship

Do you respect the ‘You-Who-Is-You” in your relationship? If you don’t like what you’ve become, then you just might want to take a better look at the healthiness of your choice of partner. This brief video gives you some advice.

Take Off Your Love Blinders on Dates

We often see what we want to see when on a date. This video reminds you about taking off your love blinders.

So you think you have found a good mate! Now you have to work on maintaining a loving atmosphere. This video gives you tips on how to act with a loving style.

Relationship Signs

Signs of a Good Relationship

No relationship is perfect, of course, because no human is perfect. This short video shows you one of the positive signs of a good relationship: Be a TEAM!

One Sign of an Unhealthy Relationship is Lack of Respect

New relationships bring so much hope–so when they go wrong, it is easy to hang onto them even if they are unhealthy. One way to test if your relationship is good and healthy for you is to make sure you both act with mutual respect for each other.

Breaking Up

Breakup Tips

Breakups are not necessarily a bad thing to do. In fact, it could be a very wise thing to do. In this brief video you will learn the importance of stopping to learn before you go ahead with your breakup.

Breaking Up Can Be a Wise Decision Sometimes

Sometimes we hold onto an unhealthy, bad relationship because we have invested our heart and time. But don’t hold on for just those reasons. This brief video will give you some things to consider.


Tips for Widows

Widowhood is a major life challenge. And often family and friends give you advice–especially about love. This brief video reminds you that the rest of your life is YOUR life–and that means making all kinds of decisions, including whether to date.

Widowhood and Dealing with Your Children’s Reaction to Your New Partner

Widowhood is challenging enough. But what if you do fall in love again–and your children don’t react the way you hoped. This brief video can help you.


Check back for upcoming information about my TEDx experience! In the meantime, you can visit my Blog Page for more tips and advice about love, life, work, and happiness. My advice is based on a combination of the research of other professionals and on my own research and counseling of more than 10,000 people. I tend to write about things that bother me–and that I’ve learned are important to people. And I especially feel “a call to write” a blog when a current situation bothers me.

For example, I wrote a blog about the sexual abuse of the U.S. women gymnasts. And I wrote another about a “Dateline” episode where a woman struggled to see finally that her husband was an abusive liar. If you find a topic you would like me to address, please send me an email to drlesliebethwish48@gmail.com, and write in the subject area: BLOG REQUEST. I can’t write about all of them, of course, but I appreciate any ideas that you think will be useful to others.
