In this interview with Iris Benrubi, I share the importance of vulnerability in dating and relationships so you can love more deeply.

Iris Benrubi, a renowned dating and relationship coach and therapist, interviewed me for one of her summits about the importance of vulnerability. I love this topic so much, I did a TEDx talk about it. You can watch it here. I loved our conversation so much, I created a podcast episode so more of you could hear it.

In this episode of Last First Date Radio:

  • Why I used the metaphor of the Tootsie Pop to represent vulnerability
  • Why we choose the wrong men 
  • How to begin to shed the guards around your heart and become more vulnerable
  • How to identify your core needs and speak up about them early on
  • A powerful exercise to help you let go of past pain
  • Important questions to ask yourself while dating

EP 591: The Importance of Vulnerability – An Interview With Iris Benrubi

Why is it so important to be vulnerable in dating and relaitonships?

Without vulnerability, we don’t get close to our partner. Brené Brown says it best:

“Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky, but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy – the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”
