Columbus Rationality

Rationality is about the science of reasoning, and acting effectively to meet your goals.

This week's topic: Rational Romance

Yes, there are ways to take a rational approach to romance! Come hear and participate in a panel discussion to include information from the primary evidence-based relationship counseling methods.

Panelists Gleb Tsipursky, Don Sutterfield, Ben Thomas, and Rita Messer will describe their views on how romance is just as amenable to clear thinking and effective goal setting and pursuit as any other kind of project.

A sampling of likely discussion topics:
- what is the / are some definition(s) of love?
- liking, limerence, and love
- does love come in types e.g. phileo, eros, agape?
- love and neurotransmitters
- love languages / styles
- exclusivity / non-exclusivity
- how to set and achieve romantic goals
- how relationships begin and end rationally or otherwise

Plus whatever you bring to the discussion :)

Parental Warning: We are a very casual group. There is some swearing and discussion of mature issues.
