Preparing For Love

The snow and ice have cleared and Steve is back from his trip, so after a weeklong break Tapa Palapa is back. And it’s Valentine’s Day!

We’re asking, “What’s Love Got To Do With It?” all this month at Tapa Palapa. This week we cover the ingredients of preparing for love.

In this episode Francie and Steve cover some important ideas and exercises to consider when you’re looking for a romantic relationship. They talk about ways to prepare yourself to love and be loved, to make mindful decisions about the sort of person who will be a compatible partner for you, and to know your own qualities and strengths so you can enter a relationship with confidence in your ability to be an equal partner.
