TECHNICALLY DATING (36:02)

Submit your questions Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook and hear our answers live on the show! Here’s what our listeners asked about this week:

  • NW (from Twitter): how would you weigh common interests as important for a couple? I know how that, common values, communication, shared goals, and trust are keys…
  • B (voice memo): Hey Damona just want to say I love this show. So I’m 29 I am in my first long term relationship with an amazing, amazing man. But, you know, I’ve noticed that my, what you would call hopeless romanticism has kind of almost turned into a toxic romanticism in my relationship. You know, I feel like a lot of people in my age range kind of grew up with that Disney fairy tale, Prince, you know, kind of mentality and, you know, I grew up with the whole rom com romantic, you know, kind of mentality and aspire to that my whole life and now that I’m in a relationship, I kind of almost find myself comparing our very real world relationship to this fairy tale. It doesn’t exist and I find myself almost sometimes disappointed in certain situations, when let’s just say real life doesn’t kind of live up to this fairy tale that I grew up aspiring to. So I was just curious what you thought about hopeless romantics in comparison to real life and kind of anchoring yourself in the real world when it comes to relationships. Thanks
