"...I just finished reading your book _Marrying Smarter, Marrying Later_ and found it very helpful and enlightening. The advice in your book is just right on target - finances, children, dealing with his mother, how other people react to the news that you have found someone, and so on. Your advice is very down to earth and open-minded. I have also read all the information you have online and am about to start reading your other books... Thank you so much for the help," -- Nancy

I stumbled upon your website and all I can say is "God Bless You." Your advice is awesome. Thank you! -- Peg

Some time ago, I wrote to you being "In love with a younger man". Your advice was blunt and informative and certainly what I didn't want to hear. But I just wanted to thank you because although I was very annoyed at your response to me at the time, you were spot on. You helped me to look at the person I am and to see that I needed someone that "brought as much to the table of life" as I did. I thought about what you wrote for months, alternating from anger and defensiveness and now, I am with a totally wonderful asset of a man that is even more attuned that I am in what I need from another human being. Alan is self confident and genuine in what he says and wants. I have learned to speak to him from the heart and I thank God that I met this wonderful person, who seems to be an extension of myself. I thank you for your insight and also for you ability to look from the outside in. -- Signed: A true believer in your advice.

"Just wanted to let you know that your site was very instrumental in getting me thru the toughest period in my life. Tho I wasn't aware of it at the time, I was having a relationship with a Man-Hater. I was heartbroken when I decided to leave her but she was making me an emotional wreck. Your site helped me to see her for what she was and understand that I did the correct thing in breaking it off. Thanks!!!" -- Danny

"I read your book "How to Make a Man Fall in Love With You" and I must say, what an amazing book! After reading it, I tried it with my current boyfriend. The results are unbelievable! Once when I was having a bad day, he ended up running three miles through ditches and streets in the rain just to be with me. He will always be my hero! We're already planning our future together, and I just wanted to say thank you for making a difference in my life!" -- Amanda

"Excellent web site... by far the most informative and authoritative site on the subject I've seen. Very well done!" -- Bruce

"Of all the web sites, this is my favorite. I return each week to read Dr. Tracy's advice column. She is empathetic, kind and tough. She tells people to make decisions and to follow through. I've recommended this site to friends, including shy ones who complain about not meeting anyone. Dr. Tracy is comfortable about men and women being together, from attraction to commitment. I have some women friends in their 30's who don't flirt or seek the attention of men even though they do want male companionship, and I think Dr. Tracy is a good role model for being a feminist who likes men and healthy relationships. The library is a great tool. Thanks!" -- Maureen

You have saved a life with this man." -- Joe

I caught myself saying "Oh, yeah, I knew that; she's right" more often than anything else. I think the style of the writing stuck a chord with me directly, and so many of the issues that I thought that I "knew" finally sunk in. Thanks for the much needed help, Doctor!" -- Adrian

I was looking through the "Love Library", trying to figure out exactly what was wrong with a relationship I haven't been happy with. He's a really sweet guy, but...he's a Waffler! While reading the description, the light bulb turned on in my head -- that's him! He's not going to change, he's not going to fulfill my needs -- I will soon bid him farewell! Thanks for giving me the kick in the pants to end an unhappy relationship!" -- stacy

I could on and on but I think you get the message. Please, please, please keep up the good work!!!" -- Delaney

What a help it has been for me. I was struggling so hard with my lady friend's needing to "evaluate" our relationship. I was feeling the rejection.

"I'm a 31 yr. old divorced mother of 2 who has spent the past 5 post-divorce years recovering, focusing on my kids, and getting my career into full swing. After recently cutting off a "conveneince relationship" I allowed to exist during this time I am ready to have a close adult relationship with another man, and am fortunate enough to have found someone to have it with. Particularly those of us "unlucky at love" (O.K. enough cliche's) the first time around, I think, are grateful to have a place to check in and be sure we are not repeating some of the same mistakes and to get helpful, practical advice and insight. Thanks!" -- Colleen

For people who have real-life relationship problems, you offer a dignified opportunity for getting advice that works. Thank you for providing this space for people." -- Lynn

"THANK YOU!!!! I have been having an awful bout with the blues over a relationship. One of those that you speak of that never should have gone on, did and then ended in a messy fashion. It ended about 6 months ago, yesterday I made the mistake of calling her machine to hear her voice, along with her live-in guy's. As if that isn't bad enough, she told me that she didn't believe in living together. She was for sure one of the various types of crazys.
