Season 2, Episode 7 – “Unmasking Love: 5 Dating Myths We Need to Crush”

In this episode of “How to Love Successfully” Dr. Mari Kovanen, a registered psychologist and conscious dating coach, dives headfirst into the world of dating myths and how they can mess with your love life. Dr. Mari is on a mission to set the record straight on five common misconceptions about dating. 

First, she smashes the idea that you need to juggle a bunch of dates to find your match; she’s all about strategic dating and self-awareness. Next up, she warns against mistaking those heart-pounding, head-spinning feelings on a date for true love – they could just be jitters. And for the ladies, Dr. Coon drops a truth bomb – waiting for the guy to make the first move in real life isn’t always a surefire plan; sometimes, you got to drop some hints.

Throughout this eye-opening episode, Dr. Mari encourages listeners to be mindful of these dating myths and how they might be steering them in the wrong direction. Her expert advice centers on empowering individuals to make conscious and fulfilling choices in their dating lives. So, if you’re looking to step up your love game and leave these myths behind, this episode is a must-listen.
