Dr. Heavenly Kimes is a dentist by trade and relationship expert by nature. Her interest in how committed relationships work — and how individuals can make them work better — led her to a career as a compassionate relationship coach for married women.
Relationship coach Dr. Heavenly Kimes is a business powerhouse with a long list of credentials to her name.
While she still runs her Atlanta dental practice to pay the bills, Heavenly enjoys fixing hearts just as much as fixing smiles. Her experience juggling her career and working alongside her husband, who’s a top surgeon, has given her insight into the attitudes, behaviors, and principles that build a lasting and fulfilling marriage.
“First and foremost, I started studying relationships for myself,” Dr. Heavenly said. “I learned all these things, and I was thinking ‘A lot of people must know these principles’ — but they just don’t.”
Relationship-building isn’t taught in schools, so Dr. Heavenly has taken it upon herself to give out advice via a growing coaching practice, a best-selling book, and weekly radio shows. Her straight-to-the-point relationship guidance provides women with practical strategies to catch and keep a man’s attention.
Today, Dr. Heavenly is known for her work as an inspirational speaker, author, and relationship expert. Millions of viewers recognize her from the Bravo cable network reality show “Married to Medicine,” which focuses on the wives of men who work in the medical field. Dr. Heavenly has been happily married for more than 35 years, so she can speak with authority on how to cultivate a healthy work-life balance with that special someone by your side.
“It’s a new age, and I know a lot of things have changed, but mainly I believe that those things that worked in the old days still work today,” she said. “That means courting, acting and being respectful, and knowing our positions as husbands and wives — some people are trying to change their roles, and it just does not work.”
Giving Advice Through Her Blog, Radio Show & Coaching Practice
If you’re in need of some real talk about relationships, The Open and Honest Show with Dr. Heavenly and Dr. Jackie is the radio show for you. Every Friday, two relationship-savvy women go on the air to bluntly discuss hot topics in the dating world, including what to look for in a potential husband and how to show appreciation for your partner. It’s an educational and entertaining hour that has listeners reflecting on their lives one minute and busting out laughing the next.
Additionally, Dr. Heavenly’s blog promotes her perspective on marriage, relationships, and sex in engaging articles that showcase her no-filter coaching style. She isn’t squeamish about tackling personal subjects, including “Do You Prefer the Bulge in the Front or the Bulge in the Back?” and offers relatable opinions from the perspective of a woman who’s been on the relationship road for a long time.
“My absolute top tip is to do what works best for you and your family — and what makes you happy!” she wrote in a guide for successful moms.
Dr. Heavenly often gets straight to the point when giving out advice to her blog readers and her radio show listeners. Her perspective on marriage may seem old-fashioned, but she believes it’s important to stick to what’s worked in the past.
Whether she’s leading couples counseling sessions or answering a listener’s question on her radio show, Dr. Heavenly relies on traditional values and her own experiences as a married woman to shape her advice.
Many of the principles that Dr. Heavenly espouses come straight from the teachings of the Bible. “I’m a spiritual person,” she said, “and I believe the Bible gives us all we need for a successful relationship.”
“The Business of Love” Teaches Women How to Attract a Good Man
In January 2016, Dr. Heavenly published her first self-help book, The Business of Love, to explain to women how business skills can translate into relationship success. The book details her conversations with several women who are leaders in their industries, including a Fortune 500 executive making over six figures, and yet struggle to maintain loving relationships.
In “The Business of Love,” Dr. Heavenly Kimes draws from the relationship experiences of six women to give practical advice.
“Love like a business. You can’t just make a totally emotional decision,” Dr. Heavenly explained. “When you make that ultimate merger, it can’t just be for emotional reasons.”
Throughout the book, Heavenly uses the real-life experiences of women in the dating world to show how people manage relationships and what advice she would give them. The tone is friendly and upbeat, but the 165-page book deals with serious issues impacting husbands and wives everywhere.
The Business of Love is an important guidebook for career-oriented women who want to find and keep a good man.
“Many women are successful in business or their career,” she said, “but they need help with building strong, sustainable relationships.”

Do you prefer your man to have a bulge in the front or a bulge in the back (wallet)? I share what I prefer and why. What are your thoughts? Comment below.
Everyone is looking for Mr. or Mrs. Right. Even in college, when you have to worry about classes, exams and essays, usually, you want to make time to find your soulmate. Let’s face it. College may be one of the best places to meet that special someone. In college, you are (usually) unattached and free to be yourself and learn new things. I met my husband in college and we’ve been together for more than 20 years. It was one of the best and smartest decisions I’ve ever made.
If you decide to date during your higher education experience, keep these few tips in mind:
Explore. Take your time and meet as many people as possible. Don’t settle on one person too quickly. And most of all, have fun!
Keep things low maintenance. When finding someone that interests you, go out for coffee or tea between classes. This will make it easy to get away if he is a creep.
Opt for daytime outings. Dating late at night can give the wrong impression and may lead to some unsafe situations. Also, choose a place that won’t be frequented by a bunch of your classmates. I always say be discreet about who you are dating, until there is a title on your relationship.
Go digital. Online dating is a great way to meet new people while in college. One of the most innovative and contemporary dating sites, if I do say so myself, is PiQ.Dating. This site allows you to only see your potential date after you have viewed his or her personality traits and interests. This allows for a more comprehensive analysis of the person, rather than basing your opinion on looks alone.
Be yourself. You want to find a person that’s compatible with your true self, not with someone you are pretending to be. There is nothing wrong with putting your best foot forward, however don’t be fake. The “real you” will come out anyway.
Take it slow. Rome was not built in a day. Take your time to get to know him or her, and put limits on the amount of time you spend with them initially. Let them miss you.
Talk less; listen more. Ask open-ended questions and ask the questions you really want to know. I like to get the deal-breaker questions out of the way early on, but save topics such as religion and politics for later. Sometimes, the wrong topic of conversation can start you off on an awkward foot. People are passionate about their beliefs and you don’t want to offend anyone on the first date.
Remember that dating can be exciting and fun. Keep things casual and date as many people as you like. However, make sure you come up with a plan for your long-term relationship goals. I often talk about treating your love life as a business. Consider college a period for market research as you prepare for the ultimate merger.
