After all, good on paper is not enough. But perhaps we need to temper our hearts with reason.

Modern Love – Love and loss

The loss of a partner can be one of the most significant losses anyone can face. It is a life changing and life challenging experience. Another aspect of this experience is love after loss. It is these areas, when it comes to the phases of a relationship, that we are often afraid to talk about or discuss.

Modern Love – Dating challenges; What some of them are and what you can do about them

Dating challenges can be a source of great frustration and while there are environmental circumstances that may contribute to making it even more challenging, there is only one variable you can do anything about and that’s you and your programing. Our past has an impact on our present and our future. We are all beings that learn and learning is something that becomes wired into our brains (becomes our programing) and then acted upon. Our thoughts, beliefs and feelings influence our behavior. Sometimes we need to clean house a bit and upgrade our internal software. My guest today is Brad Yates, hypnotherapist and expert in the use of emotional freedom technique (EFT). Together we’ll explore how the mind works, learns and needs to unlearn in order to enhance our chances for dating success and relationship success.

Modern Love – It’s all about communication, except when it’s not!

You gotta communicate! This is the advice touted by many of the relationship gurus out there and yet this wonderful advice has done little to curb the divorce rate. Obviously communication is overrated. Joining me today to explore my favorite pet peeve is Chair of the Department of Communication at the University of Kentucky, Dr. Laura Stafford, Ph.D., whose research interests focus on interpersonal communication, relational communication, relationship maintenance, and long-distance relationships.

Modern Love – Sex, love and relationships: the science of love

There are more books on sex, dating and relationships than any one person can ever read, however most of the information in them is NOT worth reading in the first place. Lurking in the background are thousands of researchers probing the mysteries of love, sex, dating and relationships and, while informative, can give us very little in terms of life-changing information. That being said, it can open a doorway to awe and wonder. Join me today with my guest Kayte Sukel author of the book, “Dirty Minds” as we get acquainted with the science of love and explore some of the fascinating research that is taking place in this never-ending exploration.
