This week on the podcast we unpack New Relationship Energy NRE: How it differs from a crush, what it closes down, and what it might open up – if we think about it differently.
This is a two-parter podcast and blog post about how to make friends.
This episode we responded to a listener question about public displays of affection (PDAs). They were particularly concerned about how to navigate PDAs in a non-monogamous relationship: to what extent is it acceptable for their partner to be physically affectionate with another partner in a social situation when they are also around?
On the podcast this time we talked about the importance of being aware of values in a relationship, and how this can be challenging particularly when our values differ, or become more different over time.
In the lead up to Valentine’s day, on the podcast we discuss saying ‘I love you’ and how it can be done consensually.
This time on the podcast we discussed ‘what’s love?’ and not just as an excuse to revisit eighties/nineties classic tunes. With Valentine’s approaching what do we mean by love, and why might we celebrate it (or not)?
This time we explored the theme of relationship diversity, that is the range of different styles of relationships that exist.
This week on the podcast we tackled the issue of jealousy in answer to the following question…
Is jealousy healthy in a relationship? Or else, is the absence of jealousy unhealthy or even possible? If it is, how do we get there? If it’s not, what do we do to manage it? And how do we know whether it comes more from us or the behaviour of other person?
In the podcast this week we talked around a topic that a listener had emailed in about: the wisdom of getting back together with somebody you’ve broken up with.
How we think staying with feelings in relationships is the best thing to do and how we might actually do that (even though it’s super hard).
