Face the challenges of dating on your way to finding Love

Many single people wonder: How can I find a partner who’s a good fit for a long term relationship? 

Beyond that, when you pass a certain age, the chances get slimmer that someone who is going to be available for dating will drop in easily. With a down-to-earth approach, Jungian Analyst Polly Young-Eisendrath offers mindful guidance for those who are hoping to find new love through dating.

Course Description

In this on-demand course Polly Young-Eisendrath gives personal and practical dating advice. 

Polly Young-Eisendrath is the author of several books on relationships. In this course, she discusses the challenges of the current dating scene as well as  the beginning stages of an intimate relationship. In four classes she shares what she considers good dating practices. 

We will learn that dating a stranger through, for example, a dating app is different from dating someone we know. Polly explains how dating apps are based on projection, they are set up for fantasies and expectations. We know just a little about the other, and then we meet up. Often this results in disappointment. As a kind of preparation we can develop awareness that dating a stranger is a ‘bizarre’ activity that requires the management of our expectations. Polly Young-Eisendrath will offer some practical advice for those first few dates. 

Once we’ve selected a potential partner, we might fall in love. Although this phase often starts off with feeling this is the love of our life , disillusionment is inevitable. There is no way around that. Polly Young Eisendrath argues that if we stay together, and work our way through the disillusionment, we may come out with a deep experience of intimacy and true love. 

To work our way through the disillusionment stage, we will have to engage in a real dialogue with each other. Real Dialogue includes skills that help you deal with disillusionment and conflicts in relationships. When we develop these skills we have a much better chance of growing a deep, loving bond with a potential partner.

The classes are available now.

This course is ideal if

  • Reflect on your ideas and beliefs about dating and finding new love
  • Learn about ways to deal with the challenges you come across when dating
  • Deepen your understanding that complexes get triggered in the dating process and how to develop the skills that are needed to deal with them

Course Overview

Class 1. Dating a stranger or dating someone you know 

In this class Polly Young-Eisendrath talks about the differences in dating someone you know and dating a stranger with the use of a dating app

Class 2. Going through the challenges of dating 

In this class the role of earlier failed relationships is discussed. We might have reasons why we imagine that we shouldn’t trust again, because we’ve been hurt before. Polly Young-Eisendrath also discusses some of these challenges of dating and why it is beneficial to take on the challenges.

Class 3. Falling in Love and Disillusionment 

Disillusionment will happen. The question that arises is how we deal with that. How do we know when to continue dating a person or to let them go? What is a good time to really commit to another?

Class 4. Conflict skills, Real Dialogue and True Love

The topic of this last class is conflict. You  need some kind of container to address conflict well. Conflict can actually lead to closeness, provided you have the skills to deal with it. Polly Young-Eisendrath talks about real dialogue and how this contributes to a loving relationship.

By the end of this course you will

  • Reflect on the way you deal with the challenges of current day dating.
  • Take on a dating perspective that combines Jung’s work on complexes as well as mindfulness skills.
  • Embrace Real Dialogue skills that open the way to true love
