Do you ever find yourself questioning why you are attracted to the “bad boy” or “bad girl”, the addict, the emotionally and or legally unavailable human being, it’s important to “open up the hood and look underneath”.
Welcome to this episode of Divorce Source Radio with Steve Peck, on today’s show the topic is Conscious Dating and our guest is Elizabeth J. Tupling, MS, TLLP. Elizabeth is a psychotherapist concentrating in individual, and family therapy, and maintains her private practice in Huntington Woods, Michigan.
She and Steve will examine what Freud referred to as “the unconscious” – the collection of repressed wishes, thoughts, fantasies and impulses, many of which include an aggressive quality. What is the significance? Inside these unconscious struggles lies the key to why we are attracted to, interested in, and or seem to attract a particular type or kind of person.
What we’ll usually find is a long standing, established pattern of being attracted to the same kind of person, and not knowing why. Like a moth to a flame, we drift toward exactly what we consciously know is not healthy for us – it’s a real primitive, primal process that originates in early “imprinting” in the brain. This imprinting creates an unconscious definition of how relationships should feel for us – good or bad.
The challenge for the listener is to examine what feels “good” in the early stages of an attraction. If a person is doing a truthful inventory of these feelings they might find that subtle cues of rejection, the need to chase, dismissal of one’s needs, justification of disrespectful behaviors, all feel vaguely familiar, comfortable and worse off, comforting. Doesn’t make sense does it? It usually doesn’t, it’s unconscious.
