Cohesiveness allows for Healthy Dating Relationships- Dating- S1E6

Cohesiveness is important in all healthy relationships, even in festivals like these that celebrate corgi cohesiveness at SF's Corgi Con 2017.Episode 6 (Listen NOW!) – Cohesiveness allows for Healthy Dating Relationships according to Andrey… What is really at the core essence of this relationship trait?

What keeps people together? By definition, it’s usually some sort of cohesiveness. However, every couple can have a different reason for staying together. Some people like being with uncanny versions of themselves. Some people are nothing alike, but that’s what they love about each other. Also, it could just be about the sex. Let’s be real, everybody knows at least one couple that they think is just in it for the sex. The question is, is there anything really wrong with that?

As Andrey mentioned previously in Episode 5, he and his fiancee have absolutely nothing in common. So what does he think his secret is? Is it opposites attract? Or rather is there something underlying that’s the source? As he tries to unpack his own conclusions on the matter, John and Ryan chime in with theirs. Tune in to find out how we dissect the issue of cohesiveness.

Cohesiveness Outline

  • Is it maintaining a healthy sexual relationship?
  • Common ground vs Complimentary traits
  • AND MORE!

Deal Breakers Discussion, do you have any serious ones? – Dating – S1E5

Dating contains many deal breakers and sometimes those barriers can be difficult (or easy) to overcome depending on the situation
Episode 5 (Listen NOW!) – John goes in deep with TheRelationshiPodcast about Deal Breakers.

Probably everyone has experienced this: TFW (that feel when) you start to catch feelings for someone, then you notice one thing that won’t stop bothering you. That’s the short term version of what a deal breaker is. Sometimes there are just some things that we can’t get over. As a result, all of us usually have at least 1 deal breaker.

In this episode, we talk about how we’ve dealt with deal breakers in our relationships, regardless of whether we’re on the giving or receiving end. As Ryan and Andrey point out, being Asian American sometimes has it’s own challenges in this department. Also, there’s not that much discrepancy between men and women when it comes to this.

Deal Breakers Outline

  • Do you guys have any deal breakers that is not listed in Katherine’s list?
  • Have you ever been the exception to someone’s deal breaker?
  • And MORE!

Friend (Ship) Defined vs. Friend (Zone) Entered – Dating – S1E4

Difference between Friendship vs. Friend Zone areas, are similar to these neighborhood watch signs, you never know what you'll get yourself into...
Episode 4 (Listen NOW!) – Ryan distinguishes between friendship vs. the friend zone.

“I like you like my brother.” We collectively hate that sentence. That short sentence is enough to send many men into a drinking binge. It’s the last thing you want to hear when you put yourself out there. It’s the essence of the friend zone.

So, what is the friend zone? Moreover, what are friends? We talk about our own definitions and how our life experiences contributed to these definitions. In addition, we try to dissect why we think the friend zone exists. By the way, John claims he’s never been in the friend zone. Also, Drey’s experience might shed some light for both men and women. After stepping back a bit and seeing the experiential evidence as a whole, the answers you might be seeking might be a lot more simplistic than you think. Find out how in today’s episode.

Friend Zone Outline

  • What’s your definition of friendship?
  • How do you define the Friend Zone?
  • Have you friend zoned anybody?

Cultural Barrier Challenges of Dating; Owning Your Happiness – S1E3

A Cultural Barrier surrounds us each time we encounter a new relationship, similar to the corns on the cob who are prevented from falling to the ground.
Episode 3 (Listen NOW!) – Andrey explores cultural barrier challenges of dating with TheRelationshiPodcast team. 

We’re from California which is incredibly diverse. As a result, our collection of friendships and relationships are essentially a melting pot. This is especially true considering we’re Asian American ourselves. Now, most people don’t mind this for day to day life, but what about relationships? It’s important to ask because these are people that you choose to spend your time with. What are some cultural barriers you may encounter? What are some benefits to embracing other cultures?

Thus, today we all talk about our own experiences in this melting pot. Fortunately, it seems like all 3 of us have had at least some experience dating outside their own culture. Andrey has literally never dated women within his own culture which makes his experience especially relevant to the topic (which is why he picked it). A relationship that’s full of cultural norms is apparently not his style. That’s not to say that John and Ryan’s experience are any less interesting, to say the least. Tune in to find out how the cultural barrier impacted our lives.

Cultural Barrier Outline

  • Have you dated anyone of a different culture than yourself?
  • What did you do to reconcile those issues if you did?
  • And MORE!
