We love helping women and men who are trying to navigate dating and really date healthy. And when you're setting your priorities in a healthy relationship, one of the first things you want to consider is what we're discussing today: healthy attachment. What's the big deal about attachment? Attachment theory came about in the 1950s and essentially theorizes that early experiences with our primary caregivers set the tone for how we attach in other major relationships throughout our lives. And depending on how that caregiver showed up, that's how we learned how to interact with the world. But it's important to note: you are not your attachment style, and it's not set in stone. So you can absolutely go about healing your attachment style and cultivate healthy attachments in dating. Attachment style summary We cover three different attachment styles in this conversation, which include: Secure - Feels that most of the time, people show up and the world is a safe place. Anxious - Needs deep connection to avoid a sense of loss or abandonment. Avoidant - Becomes so independent and strong that they have no needs at all. You'll Learn: How your attachment style affects the way you show up in relationships and dating Ways to accept and own your attachment style so you can show up as yourself and connect authentically with others Triggers for your attachment style and how to practice deep self-care How to honor your attachment style in the midst of healing from betrayal or addiction trauma ***In this episode you will get a basic idea of what attachment styles look like, and how you might identify with the different styles. If you want to learn more about his we recommend the book Attached, where you can also take the assessment to find out your style. ****If you are divorced, it's time to treat yourself- click here for more information on the retreat coming up in October. *****If you are looking for resources for your young single adult , or know one who could use tools and concepts for healthy dating and self empowerment, (who doesn't?!) then share this link with a YSA you know.

What You'll Hear In This Episode:How does an avoidant man's behavior shift from the beginning of dates to when things get a little more comfortable? What makes an avoidant man want to get in a relationship in the first place?

What You'll Hear In This Episode:Rules are somewhat arbitrary and they often come from our head, rather than our soul. Rules can be separating and repel people. They can be black and white, while a boundary is about communicating what matters to you in a way that gives someone the choice to respect it.Lisa gives an example of how Benjamin asked Lisa (nicely!) if she could change her tone, and how that was an example of him setting his own boundary. Lisa and Benjamin give some real world examples of rules that almost resulted in missed connections and confusion to both the man and the woman.The “rules” and all these strategies and games for dating may work to get a date, or even a ring, but they aren't building toward a solid foundation because they aren't based on emotional nakedness, trust, or vulnerability. Being the Guardian of someone's Soul isn't about following rules. It's about seeing the path that the soul needs to go on, and supporting it in every way possible.

It's about being able to say, ‘look, this is what works for me. This is what my truth is, and can you meet me there'?” - Lisa“Rules are somewhat arbitrary, and they often come not from our soul, but from our head.” - Benjamin“Rules are about control where boundaries are about emotional vulnerability.” - Benjamin“Anytime you are setting a boundary, it's about making a request and inviting and saying to a man ‘Could you? Would you? I would love to know your thoughts.' It's not one person dictating how it is.” - Lisa
What You'll Hear In This Episode:Part of being an empowered and powerful woman is looking for what we can do to create a space for men to feel safe. Lisa explains how the labels we put on men as constantly being emotionally unavailable actually give our power away.We have a tremendous capacity and a gift for being able to draw out the best in men. How do we create that safe space for a man? If you tell him to be honest, you must be ready for what his true honest answers are. Yelling at him after will make him feel that he actually can't tell you the truth! Male vulnerability and female vulnerability look and sound very different. From a young age, men can be bullied and made fun of for expressing their emotions. Lisa talks about how she realized that being in a relationship meant she had to make room for the man, and things couldn't always be exactly how she wanted them.

What You'll Hear In This Episode:Our core values are what make up the matrix of our being. They are deeper than just thoughts or opinions, and our core values typically don't change with the wind. It takes effort, but it is possible to navigate to the goodness of the person and see that both people are usually trying to do what they think is good for the world. Yes, it is very, very difficult for two people who have diverging core values to be in an intimate relationship. Lisa and Benjamin talk about their shared core values- one being that neither wanted children. But what would it look like if someone changed their mind? Opposites don't always attract. Sometimes being on the same page is the best way to be when it comes down to these very big, personal, and divisive issues. Being the Guardian of someone's Soul doesn't mean you give up your life to live theirs. What should you do when the differing opinions are so big that it just seems unfixable?

And it's just the opposite. It's having that relationship and getting the ring.” - Benjamin “Core values are really what make up the matrix of our being.” - Benjamin“I think it's always possible to navigate to the goodness of the other person and to have the idea that both people, even on either end of the spectrum, have the same goal. Which is to do good in the world, and hopefully leave it a better place.” - Benjamin“It would be very, very difficult for two people who have diverging core values to be in an intimate relationship.” - Benjamin “Being the guardian of someone's soul also means that the other person deeply wants to be the Guardian of Your Soul. So it's that mutual connection, we never want to live someone else's dream.” - Lisa “I don't think that opposites attract. I think having two people that have both feet in the world and are on the same page is the best combination of all.” - Lisa
What You'll Hear In This Episode:What is a boundary, and how do you know what your boundaries are? What to do when someone keeps testing or not respecting your boundary. Boundaries are not a one size fits all thing, and we have to learn how to communicate what ours are in a relationship. Men don't like being told what to do (especially from women) so how do you tell him your boundary in a firm but loving manner? Don't forget!

How can you tell if the person you're dating is ready for forward movement, or if they're just making excuses and stringing you (and the relationship) along?
