Dating Is Hard: Why Forgiveness Isn't Always The Answer


Technology has made our lives easier in SO many ways, but it certainly doesn’t seem to be the case with dating. Maybe it’s due to people thinking they have unlimited options because of dating apps, a shift on what a “happy relationship” looks like, or something else entirely. Whatever the reason, finding love today is hard — and the data seems to back this up as well. 

So how do we get back to basics? How can we find our ideal partner, and receive the lasting love we’ve been searching for? My guest today has spent her career answering relationship questions like this one, and I’m happy to have her back in the studio for this episode. Her name is Lori Gottlieb, and she’s going to share with us what makes finding love today seem impossible, what it takes to truly forgive your partner, how to avoid dating the “wrong” person for you, and so much more.

I know dating can seem overwhelming at times, so that’s why I’m excited to have Lori teach us how we can set ourselves on the right track to find the love we want. And now, please help me welcome the one-and-only, Lori Gottlieb, to The School of Greatness!
