Show Notes

Do you find yourself saying, "We're so busy, I feel like roommates?” Or maybe you say, "We know we need to go on dates, but we never seem to get around to it. And then if we do go, a lot of times we get into a fight." Today on Sex. Love. Power., we're talking about spending more time together. Whether that's talking, having fun, or getting naked together. We're going to cover how to recognize the resistance so you can break through those totally understandable obstacles and actually get more closeness and heat between you.


As you listen to this episode, we’ll talk about:

  • Why time alone together matters for your relationship in the long-term
  • The reasons you don’t spend time together, even if you know you should
  • How to keep alone time from turning into a conflict
  • The habits that are keeping you from truly connecting and new ones you can form

And more. 

E.g. Join the conversation by listening, then share your story or response on our voicemail at 206-659-9865 or inside our free Conscious Couples' Circle on Mighty Networks.

“We need to have more fun together. In order to help us resolve some of these conflicts. It's not the other way around, where we have to resolve these conflicts before we can have fun together.”

-Michele Lisenbury Christensen
