We've been getting a lot of questions from listeners about how to navigate difference of political opinions in relationships, just in time for the US election this episode we invited Jeff to join us to talk about how political difference is impacting relationships.
“Even when life is peachy people usually experience desire fatigue."
"You can't sustain the chemical intoxication of the beginning of the relationship without taking supplemental drugs."
"I really love my work and there are days I don't want to do my job. But there are no things I care about at the same intense level every day of my life."
"People who keep desire alive are willing to keep showing up, and get curious about when there's a lower desire concern showing up. I can't expect things to change if I just settle for things as they are."
"Blame isn't a place where we tend erotic fire."
"People who stay curious stay connected and more satisfied."
