Testing compatibility in a new relationship
If you are ready for a new relationship (and perhaps your next great romance) then be proactive about your love life and register today!
When you’re entering into a new relationship it’s all too easy to get carried into the skies by the butterflies in your belly. But before you’re swept away completely it’s important to place two solid feet on the ground and ask yourself some honest questions. Oh, and your friends and family, too, says therapist Alexandra Redcay.
Love clouds our judgement
Choosing a partner that is genuinely compatible is tricky business. And as much as we would all like to think we control the selection process of our partners, it’s just not the case. Rather, when we enter into a new relationship our analytical processing systems shut down and our brains succumb to the addiction of love; we lose our ability to accurately judge potential partners.
And falling in love happens much quicker than we are willing to admit, says Redcay, who presented her talk Selecting the Right Relationship at a Tedx event in New York. She explains that falling in love often happens in the first few months of getting to know someone. “We might not say it, we might not admit it but we know it’s true.”
