Q&A with Dr. John Gray: what is the foundation of a long-lasting relationship?

We’re back with Dr. John Gray (author of Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus), and we gave him a total softball question this time: What is the foundation of a long-lasting relationship?

He makes it look as easy as pie. Namely, that we need to better understand the roles we’ve chosen, and learn how to adapt to those roles and fit them together with the roles our partner has chosen, so that we can bring out the best parts of ourselves. Scroll down to hear it from the man himself…

And he does it all in under 2 minutes! But again, it all comes down to those chemicals… Since we’re all a competing mixture of testosterone and estrogen, wherever those levels are at is going to effect our behavior, our responses to the world around us, and our feelings about our partners in the moment. So how are you going to adapt?
