    Episode #20: First Dates: Myths vs Facts

    Episode #20: First Dates: Myths vs Facts

    In this episode of Caitlin’s Couch, The Podcast, Caitlin shares that dating can be soul crushingly difficult nowadays. None of us were taught how to navigate the online dating world, and without the necessary knowledge, it can suck you in and spit you out with half the self-worth you started with. 

    But luckily, you can learn how to navigate the online dating world. You can learn how to make it work FOR you, instead of AGAINST you. 

    Let's start with first dates. There's so much education needed around first date mindset, expectations, and emotions. In this video, I break down the most common myths about first dates, and give you the facts you need to step into your power, and take control of your dating journey.

    Say goodbye to repetitive disappointments, and hello to confidence and empowerment.

    Hungry for  more information on first dates? Then my upcoming workshop is for you!

    If you want to get dating right from the first date (and even BEFORE the first date), this workshop is a MUST!  This is a 60 minute free, live workshop that will help you stop making the same mistakes (unknowingly), and start dating in a way that feels empowered and actually works.

    Join me Thursday December 9th at 7:30 pm EST for my live training: First Dates: Three common mistakes that are keeping you single.

    Episode #18: Stop getting emotionally attached too soon

    Episode #18: Stop getting emotionally attached too soon

    In this episode of Caitlin’s Couch, The Empowerment Lab Podcast, Caitlin talks about a scenario that may sound way too familiar to you…
    You’ve been out with him three times now, and things are going really well! You’re ready to take it to the next level, and you’re thinking about all the fun things the two of you will do together in the future. On your fourth date, you have sex, and it’s amazing! You’re high with endorphins and happier than you’ve been in a long time….
    Fast forward two weeks. 
    He’s not texting you as much and you don’t understand why. You feel devastated. Again.
    You promise yourself you won’t get attached so quickly next time, but you do because you don’t yet know how not to.
    Getting emotionally attached to someone too quickly, and before the relationship grows into something that matches that strong sense of attachment, happens to the best of us. 
    Caitlin shares her personal experience with getting attached in a relationship too quickly, and what she has learned over the years to stop repeating that very painful pattern.

QUOTES “Getting attached so quickly is reflective of not understanding relationships.” “There is so much that you don’t know you don’t know.” “Part of growth and change is becoming more aware of what red flags are and not expecting yourself to just know.” “Wanting to have sex with you has very little to do with wanting a relationship with you.” “Going on three to four dates is essentially the same as going on a bus ride with a person.” “If you’re emotionally unavailable, you’re unavailable.”  “Go and fuck whoever you want, as much as you want!” LOVE THE PODCAST?

    Episode #17: Should you be dating one person at a time?

    Episode #17: Should you be dating one person at a time?

    In this episode of Caitlin’s Couch, The Empowerment Lab Podcast, Caitlin shares her views from a relational perspective, on whether or not to date multiple people at once. In her professional opinion, if all you’re doing is dating & that is your whole life, you’re missing out on life. Plus, you’re showing up from a place of need instead of want. 
    In addition, Caitlin talks about the common problem of getting overly attached too soon. You need to learn how to develop a healthy relationship to keep yourself from getting too attached. Once you learn how to have a healthy relationship, you’ll never get overly attached to someone who isn’t as attached to you in return, ever again.

QUOTES “When your life becomes about finding someone, you can come across as desperate.” “If all you’re doing is dating, then that is your whole life, & you’re missing out on life. You’re showing up from a place of need instead of want.” “I don’t think that dating a lot of men will teach you how to have a healthy relationship.” “When dating became something I did in addition to the rest of my life… that's when I started to show up from a place from want instead of need.”  “Honor that you are not okay being single.” LOVE THE PODCAST?

    Episode #16: Online Dating is a Total Sh*t Show

    Episode #16: Online Dating is a Total Sh*t Show

    Welcome to Episode #16 of Caitlin’s Couch, The Empowerment Lab Podcast. In this episode, I am sharing all of the sh*t no one tells you about when you start your online dating journey. The dating sites and apps show you the success stories, wedding photos and fairy tale happy endings, promising you that you can have that too...but they don’t tell you about the years of trial and error, the painful experiences, and the emotional turmoil that people go through before finding their perfect match. 
    They don’t tell you you’re signing up for a sh*t show, and that you need to learn how to take control of your dating journey in order to make these sites work for you, rather than against you.
    You’ll hear all about my less than dreamy story of how I first navigated online dating and how I eventually met my husband. I worked on myself and figured out how to take control of the online dating world. And now, I’m giving you everything you need to find your forever partner faster and to feel empowered along the way. Listen as I share my tips for how to make online dating less of a total sh*t show!

    SOCIAL MEDIA + QUOTES If you don’t know you are walking into a total sh*t show, you are going to get sucked into it, chewed up and spit out! No one can form a relationship in a high pressure fast paced system, and that’s what the online dating world is (if you don’t take control of it) Don’t leave it up to chance; don’t rely on the dating sites to get you to the right person; act in ways that lead you to be able to trust yourself.

Amazing!

This podcast is amazing! I love how comfortably she talks about topics that are usually skirted around. The guests also seem so comfortable and Caitlin provides a very valuable perspective. She doesn’t shy away from the hard conversations making this an incredibly valuable resource! I highly recommend this podcast for EVERYONE!

EssentiallyMarie ,

Caitlin opens up the space for necessary conversations

She has this uncanny ability to get her guests to open up and literally get naked on her podcast. These conversations and topics have been taboo for too long and it was time for this queen to shine the light on them!
