This Funzing Experience:
We’ve been taught that as long as two people really love each other, things will work out - the important part is finding love, the rest will fall into place. Over and over again movies, songs and stories remind us of the importance of finding that special person who will transform our lives with true love.

But is love only about finding the right person? And is a great relationship merely built on finding true love? And if this is the case, then why are divorce rates ever growing? Did those marriages never truly have love or is there something more to love that we don’t realise?

Long-term love and success in a relationship require more than finding the right partner. Too much of our culture focuses on the quest for love without considering its substance. The truth is, falling in love and sustaining it are two different things and confusing the two can lead to heartache. In this talk, we will focus on the what romantic love is, why we need it, and how to make it a success in your relationship over the long run.

***Please note this talk is not for the faint of heart - the hopeless romantic who wants to stay that way. This talk will take an honest, somewhat brutal, deeper look at romantic love to find out why we have a cultural obsession with romantic love and why it sometime doesn't last. People often have strong reactions - often good, but sometimes bad. So if you're attending, please attend with an "open heart"...pun intended ;)
