Finding emotionally available, secure, and loving people to date is the holy grail of the dating world. Find one of these mystical creatures, and you're guaranteed smooth sailing until the end of days.  Just kidding. But you'll have a better chance at a loving relationship with a kind, caring, and respectful person, and you might avoid some unnecessary heartbreak. And at the same time, it's worth considering if you are emotionally available yourself?

Nora McInerny is an author, podcaster, fellow human, and someone who's learned to live and love with grief. She's also someone I admire a lot, and I'm not gotta lie, I fangirl pretty hard around her. Today, we're talking about how love is both the most beautiful thing in the world and also awkward, challenging, and complex, and we're all bumbling around trying to figure it out as we go along. If you've ever wanted to listen to two exuberant people (with ADHD?) talk about love and relationships, this is your episode.  What you'll learn (or why you should care): Why we overextend and abandon ourselves for love. How we figure out relationships by "learning on each other." The importance of learning to like yourself before you love yourself.

While all your needs are valid, some of those needs can’t - or won’t - be met by others (no matter how much you want them to or try).  If your need is tied to your self-esteem, your self-worth, your value, or your love for yourself as a person, it’s going to be nearly impossible for others to meet those needs. They might try and fail because no amount of them trying will meet the need for self-love.
In this episode, Kat Harris, relationship coach and author of Sexless in the City, discusses how to deal with life plans that continue changing and the sadness that comes from living a life that’s different than what you expected.  Kat and Shaun talk about grieving your dreams, how to be honest with yourself, and the importance of keeping your expectations in check.    What you'll learn (or why you should care):   How to overcome being a victim to your relationship status How to accept that a relationship might end How not getting what you want can open up new possibilities   Resources: Peggy Orenstein's book Girls and Sex  Listen to her podcast episodes on fertility.   Where to find Kat: Kat’s website Get her book, Sexless in the City.
