It's been nearly twelve years, but Alex Allman of Revolutionary Sex is back to cover one of the most confounding subjects possible in the world of relationship advice. That's of course, true love. What is it? What does it mean to be 'in love'? Just importantly, what does it NOT mean? And when do you know you're actually there? Well, the truth is people may have different representations and definitions for true love, but there really is some substance to it...despite how nebulous and over-used the word itself is in the English language. Alex kicks the discussion off with some deep hippie stuff from the Grateful Dead, before carefully explaining how love isn't just something to aspire to, it's something you also build...and do. He's also careful to note the spiritual aspect of romantic love, even though what he says may not be what you're expecting. And you'll definitely not hear the same old jingoistic dating advice battle cries here. To that end, we define the difference between love and infatuation. We also talk about how to make sure who you throw your heart to is going to catch it without breaking it...assuming that's possible. Is true love really a 'ball and chain', or the opposite? How do masculinity and femininity--in combination with maturity--pave the way for true love to happen? What meta-level impact does solid self-esteem have on real love that goes the distance? Is love just as much about timing as it is finding the right person? We're living in difficult times, but you're not alone. Call me for 25-minutes free.
