Looking for love in all the same places

Filed under: Psychology,TV — posted by Maria @ 4:14 pm

For those of you in a re-relationship like mine, it turns out we are not the freaks our friends try to make us out to be. In fact there’s an entire subset of relationships — with their own TV role models, of course — that have risen from the very ashes of their own breakups. (Again, and again, and again.)

According to a recent article in the Contra Costa Times, the cycle of breaking up and making up with the same person — you know, in the inimitable words of Charlene: “That man you fought with this morning, the same one you’re going to make love to tonight” — has a lot to do with our biological makeup, our fears of being alone, and, in some “extreme” cases, an addiction to the “I love, I mean hate, I mean LOVE you” drama.

Lisa Gray, a marriage and family therapist, says: “[These couples] get addicted to that up and down of emotion. The more quiet, stable love is not really cultivated as something to be respected. Just watch the common TV shows. These loud breakups-and-get-back-togethers are what get the attention.”

If that’s the case, I, for one, would be perfectly happy to spend the rest of my life never getting any attention ever again. Quiet, stable love, where are you?

    the other person’s blog link on your page at appropriate
    place and other person will also do similar in support of
    you.

  2. Hey! Do you know if they make any plugins to
    help with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some
    targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good success.

    If you know of any please share. Appreciate it!

  4. I’ve been surfing online greater than 3 hours as of late, but I
    never discovered any attention-grabbing article like
    yours. It is lovely value enough for me. Personally, if all web
    owners and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the net shall be
    much more helpful than ever before.

  5. At this time it sounds like Drupal is the best blogging platform out there right now.

    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
