“Swoon” Show Notes: Episode #138: Listener Question: Vibing With Someone New

Jeff Guenther, LPC on Nov 07, 2021 in Swoon

This week we answer a listener question about how and when to try taking things slow in relationships. Join Julie, Jeff and Gina to think through the things you need to think about when you're excited about someone new.

This episode covers:

  • What is the difference between leaning in and diving in?
  • What to do when you feel like you can't control yourself?
  • Is it okay to be together every day?

Memorable Quotes

"No one has ever made a wise decision from a place of 'I can't stop myself.'"

"Realizing you are making a choice gives you more power and control."

"Can you create a different relationship with your experience of missing them?"

"Lean into the thrill of spending time apart."
