Argument & Chemistry Addiction (15:00)
Silent but Deadly Relationship Killers
We’ve said it many times but will say it again: Identifying past relationship patterns is crucial to restructuring your dating strategy to find success.
In Damona’s own personal dating journey, she had to overcome an addiction.
I had an addiction to “chemistry.” She LOVED that serotonin rush she got from a new connection and equated conflict with “passion.” But none of these relationships worked.
As it turns out, this is really common. Dr. Phillip Lee, notable marital therapist and co-head of the Cornell Medical Center, joins us today to break it down.
According to his new book, Argument Addiction, co-authored with his wife, our biological predisposition to chemistry addiction can make stable relationships difficult.
But there is a solution! Drs. Lee and Rudolph have unlocked the secrets to successful relationships through their extensive research. We cover:
- What is Argument Addiction?
- Chemistry is a LIAR
- Chemistry hangovers (don’t blame the tequila!)
- How to know when to call it quits
- The difference between Happy Couples and Struggling Couples
