Dating relationship tips women
Meet Alysha Jeney, a 30-year-old married relationship counselor based in Denver, Colorado.
Yep, you read that right — she’s a counselor, a millennial herself, she’s in a successful long-term relationship. Jeney, who is also the founder of the subscription-based Modern Love Box for couples, has been with her partner for about a decade, and has been in private practice for three years.
Surprise surprise, says Jeney — it’s the inability to connect deeply with a potential romantic partner.
We sat down with Jeney to sort through this massive problem, and to get some practical advice on how to find love in the modern age.
I think the dating game is really isolating, even though [millennials] are immersed in so many different options.
I think with my particular caseload, [men and women equally] want to have good-quality relationships, but don’t necessarily know how to find it.
AJ: I think a genuine connection takes time to facilitate; you have to take time to nurture a foundation between two people where there is emotional safety.
If you don’t have that, it’s really hard to be vulnerable with someone and be authentic, and to develop that genuine connection with someone.
I am a couples therapist practicing in Denver and Aron is a creative web guru. Between fuccbois on Tinder and self-esteem killing trolls on social media, the modern dating world can be savage.That’s why we decided to ask an expert for some millennial dating advice.AJ: My clients have been talking about an app that’s called Coffee Meets Bagel [which allows women to choose from a pool of men who have already expressed interest]…And there’s [another app] that’s more about a spiritual connection, not necessarily a religious one but more of a soul connection, and it’s called Meet Mindful.I personally have not looked into them, so it’s hard for me to recommend. @abbieboudreau is Interviewing @meetmindful founder @amybaglan TUESDAY @ 11am PST / 2pm EST on FB (link in bio) It's a refreshing take on the relationship front. #namaste #onlinedating #dating#love #relationship #truelove #family#advice A post shared by Meet Mindful (@meetmindful) on AJ: If you have a dog, I think going to dog parks and trying to engage with people [is great], because that’s a really friendly, social environment where you can connect with other people.
