Dr. Corey Guyton has gained the reputation of being a sought-after relationship coach, best-selling author, and motivational speaker. Although he has accomplished a lot in life, Dr. Guyton’s road to success was not always smooth.
Born and raised in a small country town in southwest Georgia, Corey was a mamma’s boy who was known in school as the “respectable kid.” In high school, dating was a challenge: he was often told that he was “too nice,” and many of the girls put Corey in the “friend zone.” Despite being overlooked by a lot of girls for his goody two-shoes image, Corey continued to be the good boy throughout his teen years.
Frustrated with the way his high school dating experience went, Corey made a promise that he would not have the same experience in college: he lost weight, changed his style, and walked with a little more swagger. Corey went from being looked-over to receiving a lot of attention from the ladies. As the new “bad boy” on the block, he unfortunately learned how to charm and manipulate his way through dating relationships.
In his 20s, Corey made a shift: he fell in love with a lady who inspired him to abandon his selfish and narcissistic ways. Unfortunately, this love story did not have a happy ending. His love interest unexpectedly decided to end the relationship, leaving Corey brokenhearted and confused.
This breakup was the first time Corey ever had to face the dreaded feeling of heartbreak. It was during this time that he reflected on all of the women he hurt over the years. Devastated by his own failings, he made a vow that he would stop being a heartbreaker. Corey rededicated his life to God, and remained single and celibate for three years.
Dr. Guyton assumed a position as a college administrator, and was asked to give a keynote on the dynamics of male and female relationships in college. After the speech, young women sought Dr. Guyton’s advice, and his speaking engagements increased on college campus’. Dr. Guyton wrote his first book, Through the Eyes of a Man: The Truth about College Dating Revealed to Women, began gaining a following on YouTube, and writing articles for various websites. His second book, The Ultimate Guide to Evaluating Mr. Right and Eliminating Mr. Wrong, was written to address the needs of older women.
While writing his first book, Dr. Guyton met a beautiful woman who stole his heart and would eventually become his wife. He is married to Dr. Chutney Guyton, and they have a handsome, precocious son, Camden.
Dr. Guyton was forgiven and restored for the purposes of helping others. He is more passionate than ever about sharing his insight and knowledge to help women and men achieve their relationship goals. Dr. Guyton is a well-researched scholar, and holds a B.A.S. from Clayton State University, a M.Ed. from the University of Louisville, and a Ph.D from Indiana State University.
