122. Benjamin Von Wong on Love at First Sight

Wellness expert Heather Grzych interviews artist and environmental activist Benjamin Von Wong in a series on love at first sight. Ben and Heather discuss why we fall in love with people and whether love at first sight is realistic and necessary. They also discuss several topics that many people in relationships struggle with, including finding and maintaining a spark, learning what you want from a relationship, defining yourself through other people, long-distance relationships, breakups, how to build connection, emotional and sexual connection, expressing boundaries, rules and desires, and the difference between love and connection. Other topics include:

  • Being of services to others in conversation

  • Debriefing and getting feedback after a date

  • Tantra

  • How vata people date

  • Why short-term connections are the easy ones and long-term connections are harder

  • Loss of self vs. othering

  • Why consistently lighting someone up matters

  • Learning how to stay in contact with people through contact improv
