    What Are Situational Relationships? - 12 Week Relationships Podcast #55

    What Are Situational Relationships? - 12 Week Relationships Podcast #55

    When relationships grow apart, we often hear people fall back on explanations like "We just got too busy," or "We don't live near each other anymore." But the reality is that the relationship ended because it was nothing more than a casual relationship that was supported by circumstance rather than deliberate choice.

    Within these situational relationships, or Situationships, Desire is not a factor because the Quality Time is created by a circumstance such as work or school, and Desire to pursue more never develops. So when the circumstance that created the Situationship is no longer there, the relationship naturally grows apart.

    Situationships still provide great value, meaning, and emotional benefit to our lives within the context of the circumstance, so it's important to enjoy them for what they are while taking the time to understand what propels some relationships forward, while others remain at a distance.

    What Creates Desire in a Relationship? - 12 Week Relationships Podcast #53

    What Creates Desire in a Relationship? - 12 Week Relationships Podcast #53

    Why is it that most of our acquaintances never turn into friendships? Along the same lines, why do most of our friendships tend to fade over time? What we're getting at here is Desire.

    Desire is essentially the "want" for the relationship. The emotional benefits that justify your efforts to create a new relationship or support your choice to spend time with an existing one. Without Desire, friendships and relationships fade away or simply never form.

    So what creates Desire and why can it be so fleeting?

    Why You Should Choose Your Relationships Wisely - 12 Week Relationships Podcast #51

    Why You Should Choose Your Relationships Wisely - 12 Week Relationships Podcast #51

    Most of the relationships you create will fail to have long term significance. Don’t worry, there’s nothing wrong with you! This truth applies to virtually everyone. Of all the people you’ll encounter in your lifetime, a small portion will be a part of your social sphere. An even smaller portion will become close friends, and even fewer, intimate relationships.



    Who you spend your time with will also significantly influence who you become, and so because our resources are so limited, we owe it to ourselves to cultivate the right relationships.

Amazing podcast.

Great podcast.

I stumbled upon this podcast by accident. I absolutely love it. I set up some appointments with dr. Glen. I am looking forward to becoming a healthier version of me 😊

HermosaCarol ,

Great podcast, beginning with the very first episode

The contrast between the two of you is fascinating. Your individual perspectives end up revealing both sides of the coin about human interaction. There is nothing random about the sequences in life, your meeting one another falls under a magical experience that was meant to be.
