Dating Again: What Does Healthy Look Like? (Part One) [Video]

Looking for “the One?” A life partner? A best friend? What does that mean?

Are you looking for someone who loves to laugh and who’s as comfortable in formal attire as they are in jeans? Someone who loves all the same hobbies as you? Someone with whom you have “crazy chemistry?”

If so, you’re likely cruising toward your next dysfunctional, toxic relationship.

    Have to say from my experience with an attitude like that, you are setting yourself up to be a victim of the kind of woman being discussed here. When I was younger I held the same belief, but I was naive and inexperienced, perhaps even ignorant. I’m an addict though, I have that compulsive, impulsive personality that, back then, and maybe small measure today was rebellious and defiant. I was also a crisis junkie and although I would’ve strongly protested it then, I thrived on it in retrospect. I had also bought into a lot of garbage from my parents and all that until death do us part mentality. I did women like I drank, like I partied, hard….REALLY HARD ultimately there was drama and lots of intensity that I mistakenly identified as “passion”. It certainly was not healthy, in fact, it was dangerous and destructive. Over the years that’s been less and less the case but its still painful.

    Yes Love is patient, kind, it is not rude or self serving……blah blah blah. Some people are and aren’t. Some people today don’t share those beliefs, some people, predatory people view them as weaknesses…

    I don’t get the statement Dr. Palmatier makes on the blog itself. Not sure what having shared interests has to do with red flags. But the content of the video itself is solid and informative.

    Never doing it again. Took 15 years between marriages.My kids mom said I was the how High Guy. What??? When I love a woman and they say jump. I say how high. She said no woman will respect a man like that. She is right. But when you love someone you are supposed to give them preeminence. As a husband its not just about your career. Her needs and sometimes wants and dreams need to be fulfilled also. Its not just saturday morning football.
    When I was a child I thought as a child. When I became a man I had to think as a msn and put Childish things away. Sports are games. Why would you spend saturday with a tv instead of the beautiful woman you married. Wives are not just for bed time and to fulfill your needs and wants
    Christ said love your wives as I loved the Church.
    Love, feed, nurture, heal, carry when needed. Etc.
    I can say I have loved. She did not.
    Love is patient, kind , it is not rude or self serving, it keeps no record of wrongs, it is not cruel, it hopes all things, bares all things, love never fails.

      Doug, the only problem with your comment is that it is one-sided. Yes, you are to love your wife and give to her first. However, is it codependent to put someone else’s WANTS above your own NEEDS. In a healthy relationship, both individuals strive to put the others’ NEEDS (food, shelter, sleep, financial respect, love) ahead of their own WANTS (watching football, spending their money on crap you don’t need, etc). A health relationship goes both ways.
