If you've ever been in a relationship with a human being, chances are you've encountered some emotions within yourself and the other person. Until the day we are dating Vulcans or robots, our relationships will continue to be sticky, emotional, and not always rational. But all is not lost -- a healthy dose of emotional responsibility can go far! In this episode we deconstruct exactly what emotional responsibility is, and how it can bring clarity and calm to moments of conflict. We explore what it looks like if there's not enough emotional responsibility in a relationship, as well as what it may look like if there's too much!

Most of us enjoy feeling special, particularly to our romantic partners. In traditional relationships, one's specialness is closely linked to exclusivity. You are the person I choose to be monogamous with, therefore you are #1 special person in my life! But when you have multiple partners, this thinking gets turned on its head. This week we discuss how to maintain a sense of specialness in each of your relationships.

We all have been told over and over again that communication is the key to a good relationship, but how many of us actually know what that means?  The sad fact of the matter is that most of us human beings suck at communication, especially when we let our emotions, personal agendas, or desire to be "right" get in the way.

Though there are hundreds of effective communication strategies, we cover 5 of our favorite techniques to reduce the amount of suck that we bring to each conversation or argument.  In this episode, you'll learn specifically about:

1. Knowing when to H.A.L.T.
2. How to bring emotional honesty to every conversation
3. The 4 basic steps of Non-Violent Communication
4. How reflecting your partner's words can make you a better listener
5.  Finding people other than your partners to talk to when issues or conflict arises

We also discuss the buzz surrounding Caitlyn Jenner's Vanity Fair debut, and a fascinating article written by a young man who was raised in a polyamorous household.  You can check out the article here: http://www.vice.com/read/i-grew-up-in-a-polyamorous-household-528
