In this episode of Caitlin’s Couch, The Empowerment Lab Podcast, Caitlin talks about a scenario that may sound way too familiar to you…

You’ve been out with him three times now, and things are going really well! You’re ready to take it to the next level, and you’re thinking about all the fun things the two of you will do together in the future. On your fourth date, you have sex, and it’s amazing! You’re high with endorphins and happier than you’ve been in a long time….

Fast forward two weeks. 

He’s not texting you as much and you don’t understand why. You feel devastated. Again.

You promise yourself you won’t get attached so quickly next time, but you do because you don’t yet know how not to.

Getting emotionally attached to someone too quickly, and before the relationship grows into something that matches that strong sense of attachment, happens to the best of us. 

Caitlin shares her personal experience with getting attached in a relationship too quickly, and what she has learned over the years to stop repeating that very painful pattern.

  • “Wanting to have sex with you has very little to do with wanting a relationship with you.”
  • “Going on three to four dates is essentially the same as going on a bus ride with a person.”
  • “If you’re emotionally unavailable, you’re unavailable.” 
  • “Go and fuck whoever you want, as much as you want!”
