Dr. Duana Welch – My life’s my own experiment

Dr. Duana Welch is the original Love Factually author and coach, known for using social science to solve real-life relationship issues.

She has been a professor at universities in Florida, California, and Texas across 20 years, and has contributed to NPR, PBS, Psychology Today, and numerous other outlets, podcasts and videos.

Her first book, Love Factually: 10 Proven Steps from I Wish to I Do, is now out globally in five languages. The second book in the series Love Factually for Single Parents [& Those Dating Them] is specifically geared for finding the right partner not only for readers, but their families.

Her book series Love Factually Singles (February, 2019) provides science-based dating advice in single-topic titles that fit readers’ desire to save time and money and to read content specific to their needs. All her books rely on science rather than opinion to help men and women find and keep the right partner. 

Thanks to science and Vic Hariton, she is happily married.

Do single parents really have it harder dating and finding a partner?

It is truly harder. And it was especially hard for Duana because she has a PHD and a child with special needs. Both of those aspects have a role in making the situation even more difficult. Duana is a strong believer that if she can do it, other people can do it. Most importantly, she wants a message of hope out there. It can be done.

What is the biggest myth that is holding single parents back from finding success in love?

Women and men are exactly the same. It’s believing that the opposite sex has the same mating call as you do.

About the author, Ken

I am the producer and host of Speaking of Partnership, a podcast that was inspired by a life of wearing the badge of self-sufficiency and independence proudly, until I realized it wasn't really a badge...it was armor.

My passion is helping you experience the power and payoffs of partnership by understanding and appreciating the opposite sex so you can feel safe, confident and understood in your personal, professional and family partnerships.
