Welcome to episode 202 of the Love Live Connection podcast.
Today I am welcoming a very special guest, Alison Armstrong. Her book, The Queen’s Code, has had a huge impact on my life and relationship. She has taught me to ask, “What if men aren’t misbehaving?”
Learn about Alison’s incredible research and the lessons that have come from it. She has been studying men, women, and their relationships with one another for almost 30 years!
2:15 – Let’s ask ourselves: What if men aren’t misbehaving? Is it men or is it me?
6:18 – Welcome Alison!
10:20 – We often confuse the men in our lives when we state a need but do not follow through with action.
15:07 – Why do we believe others are intentionally misbehaving? What if no one is actually misbehaving?
20:15 – The words masculine and feminine are loaded with baggage, men AND women should focus on being committed and goal oriented.
24:30 – All humans have a tendency to objectify ourselves by applying labels.
28:34 – Relationships are based on expectations, partnerships have shared power that flows.
