Love Life Connection

Why do I attract emotionally unavailable people? Why are the “nice ones” boring to me? I’ve read all the books and even been to therapy, why isn’t my love life changing? Why am I still stuck? Is it just me? Am I cursed in love? These are the questions that relationship expert and love coach Veronica Grant digs into here on the Love Life Connection. Don’t worry, this podcast isn’t about fixing up your profile for the millionth time or upping your texting game. Instead, you’ll learn the deeper reasons you attract who you attract so you can heal old wounds, shift limiting beliefs and attract the deep love you desire and deserve. Each week, you’ll hear Veronica coach callers on how to do the deep work so they can find deep love. She also candidly shares many of her own relationship experiences (*cough nightmares*) so that you can learn from her in a way that feels authentic and genuine, with a healthy dose of humor and tough love. Listen and subscribe to the show and never feel broken or like you’re the only one ever again.

What does outsourcing your worthiness look like?

There’s a hot topic in the dating and relationships arena that I rarely mention. I haven’t really had an episode dedicated to attachment styles. So I’ve brought on a therapist, love coach, and Irresistible Woman podcast host Madeline Charles to talk about attachment theory and how to overcome insecure attachment styles.

In part one of this two-parter, we discuss the three main styles and she gives her perspective on how they develop and impact who you do or don’t date.

As of the recording of today’s episode, there’s an ongoing crisis with COVID and Afghanistan. These current events might have you feeling a little down. Even though I can’t know what the state of the world will be by the time you listen to this episode, I wanted to lighten things up and talk about something a bit more fun.

Over the last few months, I’ve frequently mentioned pop culture and how it has impacted our love lives. It affects people’s perceptions of men, women, love, sex, and relationships. It can also enforce beliefs and normalize power dynamics between men and women, some of which are unhealthy. In this episode, I discuss one particular unhealthy dynamic involving The Bachelorette’s Katie Thurston and Greg Grippo in hopes that it’ll help you identify shitty behavior and take appropriate action when and if it happens to you.

9:52 - How you can watch The Bachelorette episode in question for yourself

No matter the age, everyone believes that they’re too old for something. Twenty and thirty-something year-olds think they’re getting too long in the tooth to get married and start a family. Those in their 40s or 50s believe they’re too old to meet someone new, and seniors just plain think they’re too old for everything, period. Time’s always running out!

While this doesn’t have to be true, so many of us take it on as our truth. We see the number that is our age and attach a story to it as if it were real. Melissa has taken on these kinds of beliefs. She feels she’s too old, too busy, and too tired for a relationship. So in this episode, I help her get to the root of why her beliefs are there in the first place.

8:38 - Melissa describes her situation and reveals her relationship fear

12:12 - What’s really keeping Melissa from spending the time and energy on dating

17:53 - Getting to the core of what Melissa’s beliefs are really about

31:10 - How Melissa can best practice self-forgiveness

37:23 - Why I don’t believe in the idea of mistakes and recapping key points from the coaching call

40:55 - Your action steps from this episode

I get asked about matchmaking recommendations a lot. But not only did I have no one to recommend, I honestly didn’t even know if I liked the concept...until I met Sarah Louise Ryan. Sarah is an international matchmaker from the United Kingdom who I formed a bond with earlier this year. I like her approach because she combines the practical with the intuitive. 

So with her focus on outer work and my focus on inner work, our combined approaches actually complement each other well. In fact, this episode serves as an introduction to her and a way for you to see if you like her style and energy before we hold our joint workshop in September. Today, Sarah talks about how she matches her clients and what all’s involved in matchmaking, including the four biggest dating mistakes people make. 

6:31​ - The #1 thing Sarah’s learned about matchmaking, dating, and relationships

9:08 - Some advice for those who have a shopping list of attributes they seek in a partner

11:18 - What Sarah’s matchmaking company does, how it works, and how to apply

22:42 - The biggest dating mistakes Sarah sees her clients make

26:26 - The best way to approach dating disappointments, rejections, and failures

30:27 - Giving you a little taste of what Sarah and I will talk about in the September 19th workshop

Humans are complex. We're good at achieving workplace or financial goals or any area of our lives with clear, linear steps. But we stumble when it comes to personal development or relationships. There’s too much nuance, emotion, and involvement of other people in those areas to follow the linear path, yet we try to anyway.

My coaching call with Patty today really highlights this. She wants to know how to stop feeling jealous of friends in relationships. If you’ve been listening to this show for awhile, though, you know there’s more going on than meets the eye. So I help her dissect a lot of it in this episode.

9:02 - The real point behind diving into what you feel you didn’t have as a child

15:05 - What trusting other people really comes down to

21:05 - The various layers underlying Patty’s lack of trust in men

26:51 - How fear has played into Patty’s trust issues since childhood and how she can overcome it

32:48 - My controversial take on breakups that seemingly happen out of nowhere

35:41 - An invitation for Patty to imagine a different scenario

41:39 - Why jealousy can be such a difficult emotion to eliminate

43:19 - Winding down with a recap of the 3 big themes discussed with Patty

Attachment theory books are popular, and they’re mentioned to me all the time. I think attachment style and personality quizzes can be powerful tools for healing and learning about yourself.

At some point, you’ve probably heard something like, “You need to strengthen your intuition.” Well, I’m not a believer in the need for us to find or strengthen our intuition. We just need to uncover the noise we pick up from our family, pop culture, and society at large that keeps it hidden from us.

Today’s episode is all about trusting yourself and getting beyond the noise. In this coaching call with Lynn, I walk her through an exercise to reveal what her intuition has to say about her relationship. You can do the same and follow through on fearlessly trusting your intuition in your love life.

If you feel you lack feminine energy, you might be conflating it with something else altogether. Recently, my client Amanda asked about how to bring more feminine energy into her love life. But we discovered that the issue isn’t really about femininity but how to let go of needing to be perfect.

Perfectionism can feel like a masculine energy even though it isn’t. So in this episode, I walk Amanda through this confusion and help her release her need for controlling everything in pursuit of perfection. If you can relate to being a perfectionist or have some part of you that you wish to change, you’ll want to give this one a listen.

11:38 - The relationship that plays a huge part in Amanda’s perfectionist tendencies

14:57 - Looking at the phrase “no one’s perfect” in a different light

I conducted a community survey last month, and one response really stood out to me. This person said they want to meet someone organically. However, they also appreciate the ability to pre-screen people online for compatible values and interests. While dating apps have their advantages, I don’t believe using them in this way guarantees you’ll reach your goal for a deep, romantic relationship.

Today, I want to dive into how to know if you’re compatible with someone. I cover three reasons why you don’t need dating profiles to figure out if someone’s a good fit for you. Then, I wrap up with three considerations to help you make informed decisions when dating someone new.

4:37 - The rabbit hole you can often fall into with dating apps

6:38 - How arbitrary decision-making on the apps can backfire

9:09 - The real issue with depending on dating app profiles

15:57 - Why compatibility and chemistry aren’t the same things

17:34 - One area where online dating can really trip you up
