Dr Ramani and Silvia Saige dismantle the dream of fairy tale love! Not because it doesn't exist, but because those who look for it get the WORST possible outcomes. We explain why.
Part of our ongoing look at HOW TO PICK A PARTNER. We break down the dream of "fairy tale romance" from all angles – the excuses it causes us to make for our partners and ourselves, the ways it creates damaging codependencies, and the unhelpful judgments it convinces us to make about potential lovers. Plus, where does this dream come from, and what can we do to change it?
