Working on Me – Improving Relationships
Guy Free Working On Me is not meant to be a permanent lifestyle. It is meant to be a time in your life where you stop basing your worth, your happiness, and your self esteem on having a man at your side. This is going to be an all out re-deciding of who you are, who you want to be and what you feel inside.
In the program we discuss:
- The Key points for a good relationship
- Why we sometime seek out our opposite for a partner
- The importance of matching values in relationships
- The importance of healthy sex
- And much more.

Unconscious Dating After Divorce
In this episode of Divorce Source Radio with Steve Peck, we explore what Freud called “the unconscious” – the collection of repressed thoughts, wishes, fantasies and drives, many of which have an aggressive quality. What is the relevance? Inside these unconscious conflicts lies the answer to why we are attracted to and or seem to attract a certain kind of person.
The show is called Conscious Dating and our guest is Elizabeth J. Tupling, MS, TLLP is a psychotherapist specializing in individual, and family therapy, and maintains a private practice in Huntington Woods, Michigan.
For the person who is wondering why they are always drawn to the “bad boy” or “bad girl”, the addict, the emotionally and or legally unavailable person, it’s important to “open up the hood and look underneath”. What we’ll usually find is a long standing, established pattern of being attracted to the same kind of person, and not knowing why. Like a moth to a flame, we drift toward exactly what we consciously know is not healthy for us – it’s a real primitive, primal process that originates in early “imprinting” in the brain. This imprinting creates an unconscious definition of how relationships should feel for us – good or bad.
The challenge for the listener is to examine what feels “good” in the early stages of an attraction. And if the person is doing a truthful inventory of these feelings they might find that subtle cues of rejection, the need to chase, dismissal of one’s needs, justification of disrespectful behaviors, all feel vaguely familiar, comfortable and worse off, comforting. Doesn’t make sense does it? It usually doesn’t, it’s unconscious.
Questions Women Have About Men
Joining us on the show is the author of the award winning book Seeing With The Heart. William Lacey is a social commentator and we discuss the development of “spiritual sight”. His book also speaks about the opportunities for the personal growth and transformation during difficult times of trial and change. William provides a man’s perspective (with Steve’s help) to the most pressing questions that women wonder about men including relationships, faith and social issues. Don’t worry ladies, Joanie shared the woman’s point of view as well.
Some of the questions women have about men:
1) What are the things that turn a man off when he is just getting to know a woman on the first couple of dates?
2) How can a woman be sure there won’t be affairs in a relationship?
3) Why do men feel they need to fix everything when I simply want to be heard?
4) Why won’t men stop and ask for directions?

Understand Sexual Dysfunction and Have Better Sex!

Needy and Clingy People
In this episode of The Intelligent Divorce with Mark Banschick, M.D., we discuss needy and clingy personality types. Have you been with this type of person or was it you that displayed these traits?
Neediness Pushes People Away: When the relationship is no longer in the “whirlwind romantic” stage, you may feel the need to cling too much in order to maintain what you had. “What’s wrong?” “I feel like you are not there.” Anxiety occurs because you sense a change, but you may be responding to something completely normal. It’s a burden to have to deal with a clingy lover. “Everything is fine.” Will you just stop it?” The irony is that as you push your concerns forward, you partner may just decide it is too much to deal with.
And if you’re the clingy person and you are involved with a narcissist, this can turn explosive. There is no shame to admit that you are too clingy. And there are usually good reasons why you became that way; like anxieties in early childhood. Good relationships are worth a lot, so if you’ve got a tendency to be too needy, do something about it. Work on overcoming the wounds of the past, and make better relationships in the future.
While it’s fine to test the temperature of a relationship, be aware that your neediness may undermine a stable bond between you and your partner. And, if you are that partner, you may want to listen to this show and have some empathy. There’s a lot that can be done to keep your love fresh, with the help of counseling. This episode will help you learn more about needy and clingy people.
