Taking the Doom Out of Dating to Find Authentic Connection & Healthy Love w/ Mark Groves #406

This one’s not only for any single listeners that might be discouraged by the modern dating scene, but those already in a relationship that are either looking to strengthen it or have decided to move on with grace. My guest is Mark Groves, a relationship expert living out his passion for helping humans connect with one another. His goal isn’t just to pair everyone up, but to help people identify what’s right for them.  Mark teaches us to focus, not on what needs fixing, but on what we’ve already got going in a positive way. Any successful relationship is rooted in self-work, so we spend some time talking about turning the lens inward before looking for the right person. We also discuss why breakups are so valuable, the differences between mature love and romantic infatuation, manifesting your dream partner, and the value of intentional celibacy.

I hope you’ll set aside some time today to open your hearts and minds to the humble wisdom that Mark has to offer. Your relationships with others, and with yourself, will be better off for it.
