Savannah Ellis – If men and women are meant to pair up for a lifetime of eternal happiness with the primary goal of continuing the growth of our species, why is it so damn hard? The communication differences between men and women is so apparent, that we often joke that the two sexes are from opposite planets. Much has been said about these differences, but little has been agreed upon. So let’s do our best to learn how to make nice with the opposite sex in order to have long, healthy, romantic relationships. As an added bonus, Chris was recently married, so we figured it was our duty to get him some good advice.
This week we speak with Savannah Ellis, COO of The Relationship Society, CEO and Founder of the Infidelity Coaching Program, and author of the book, I Cheated: Affair Recovery Advice For When You Have Been Unfaithful.

Her passion is to help people be authentic to themselves and others. Savannah holds Psychology degrees from Monash University, Australia: Bachelor Behavioral Science (BBSc), and post graduate degrees in Clinical Psychology.
“The three most important factors in a relationship are chemistry, personality, and life goals/values.”
