Ever had a guy ghost you? He’s into you and suddenly he pulls away or cheats? Does he leave and come back into your life? This is a Gumball Guy. Gumball Love is attention addiction.

Attention is just like a Gumball, temporarily intense and sweet but soon the effect is gone. Guys addicted to the “Gumball" (any flavor of attention), get a high from the excitement, adoration and validation. During this cycle they appear to be falling in love. When the high is gone they pull away, ghost or cheat leaving you feeling confused, rejected and heartbroken.

I'm your host, Melissa Leger, professional relationship coach, creator of Gumball Love and the Back to You Academy. If you're ready to stop the cycle of toxic men, get through the break up once and for all, and finally get back to YOU, you are in the right place. This journey is about healing your heart, and you are encouraged to take the pace that is just right for you. In the process, you will build a foundation of confidence and strength that will make you unshakable, I promise. So get ready to level up your mindset and your lifestyle, as you awaken the seeds of greatness that are waiting to burst into full bloom. Let's do this!

    Are You Marrying Him Before You Meet Him?

    Are You Marrying Him Before You Meet Him?

    You come across a profile online...he's so cute, his dog is cute, you share the same hobbies and interests, you're hitting it off in the DM's, next thing you know you're fantasizing about your wedding and how you'll become bffs with his sister and wondering if you'll have Thanksgiving with his family or yours.
    Like WOAH that went from 0-100 real quick😂  This episode is to remind you to PUMP THE BREAKS girl. 
    Otherwise, you end up building up this whole fantasy in your head, putting him on a pedestal, and then miss out on the red flags that are in reality. 
    Tune in to this episode of Gumball Love to learn how to shift your mindset BEFORE you go on the date and get out of "fantasy land".

    What He's Thinking When He Ghosts You

    What He's Thinking When He Ghosts You

    What the heck is going on with ghosting?! It's becoming more and more common with my coaching clients so I wanted to address my view on what's really going on behind the scenes when he ghosts. Hint: It has nothing to do with you.
    You had a great time with him, he's what you wanted, and now he's not texting back at all, or he's coming back every now and again lukewarm.
    What gives?! In this episode I'm bringing in my own perspective based on my personal experience and the experiences of hundreds of other women I've coached, plus the perspective of a few psychologists to really get the full picture.
    A quick favor?:) I'm looking to hear feedback on the podcast- what you want more of, what you want less of, I'd love to know! Shoot me a message on IG or leave a review in Apple Podcasts. Thank you!

Empowering

Melissa’s podcasts and words are very empowering. She has helped me in so many ways over the years because she has walked the walk and talks the talk. Melissa feels like a friend that can relate and turn to when you feel alone on your journey. I highly recommend listening as it really is a mirror to becoming the best versions of ourselves and validating what’s in our hearts but may be to afraid to say aloud. Melissa will help you on your path of self discovery ♥️

Melissa is amazing and so inspirational! Plus, she actually talks about things that are applicable in real life while dating and trying to find a healthy relationship! She’s been there and understands the struggle, making her the perfect guide on this journey! I’ve learned so much!!
