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!

Fave Relationship Podcast!

Love Melissa’s insight on spotting “gumball guys”…. She always brings a fresh perspective on what to look for, and delivers it in a way I’ve never looked at before.

I always recommend this podcast to my single (and even coupled up!) friends.

Keep up the great work Melissa!💕

Love Melissa

Melissa’s podcast are always great. She has helped me so much. I always look forward to the next one.

Laur1221 ,

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 ♥️
