About Larissa

Hi there, my name is Larissa.

It’s said that 50% of marriages end in divorce, but I never thought I would become a statistic.

It was years ago when it happened – one day we were together and married and the next, my husband was asking for a divorce. I felt devastated and broken.

Here I was, a smart, loving, and successful woman in my 30s who was getting divorced from a man she was supposed to spend the rest of her life with.

I was angry with him, at myself, and at the world, but more-so I was hurt and confused and didn’t know how I was going to get past it, only that I would have to find a way.

After a few years of healing, soul-searching, and focusing on myself, I met a wonderful man.

Things were going perfectly for awhile, but after some time, I noticed the signs that things were headed downhill.

He became emotionally detached, started fights with me over nothing, rarely wanted to have sex, wasn’t as affectionate, and didn’t seem as invested in the relationship as he once was.

I had no idea what was going on, and talking wasn’t working. Whenever I would ask what was wrong, he would say “Everything is fine” and end the conversation.

I became panic-stricken and lost.

I had grown to love him so much and didn’t want to lose him! I wanted us to grow old together, and the sense that we would fall apart was weighing heavy on my heart.

I felt like I was losing a grip on the relationship, and I did the only thing I knew I could do to try to turn things around, something I had always been good at: research.

I started reading every relationship-themed book and article I could lay my eyes on, from how to keep the sparks alive to why men pull away.

I read about what men really want in bed, how to communicate effectively, how to love yourself more, what to do when a guy pulls away, what a man really wants from a woman, how to change the way you explain things, and more.

I wasn’t just trying to fix the relationship, I was also trying to change myself.

I looked at it as a self-improvement project, to really dig deep within myself and be as harsh as possible as to why my relationships in the past didn’t work out and what I could do to change that.

In addition to all my reading, I also talked to numerous long-term couples from every age, race, creed, and culture to find out what their secrets were to relationships and marriages that lasted.

Why were they succeeding when so many others were crumbling to pieces? With so many aspects and numerous questions, it was hard to know what could really be the key.

Was it the sex? The communication? Giving each other space? It’s easier to find out the answers than implementing them, but at least it was a start.

It turns out every couple had a slew of love advice nuggets to share about their success, but each individual person had their own little piece of advice that worked for them, sort of like the special secret ingredient in a recipe.

Sure enough, I started implementing their words of wisdom and it changed everything.

My relationship turned around for the better.

I lightened up more, stopped insisting we talk about problems before bed, started going with the flow, and took up new hobbies so we could do our own separate interests and talk about them later on how they were going.

Even our communication improved!

I’m not saying we still don’t have problems, because we do like every couple, but we’re no longer on the downward slope toward a potential split.

We’re stronger than ever before, and as long as we both make an effort, we’ll continue to stay that way. I’m pleased with the outcome, and look forward to our many more years together.

Since I was able to turn my relationship around, nothing makes me happier than passing along the special secrets that I learned in my research and through personal experience.

I’ve dedicated my life to help other couples find their bliss and rekindle their relationship.

Nothing makes me happier than if I can help even more couples last long term and find their way back to each other.
