Exploring the Expectations, Hopes, and Surprises of Our Relationship ft. Kevin Shanchen Pu
Show Notes

"Do I deserve better?" "Am I conditioned to ask for too much or too little from my partner?" "What kinds of expectations are even helpful??" "What should I work on when I’m single, so I can attract a healthy relationship?”

Have you asked yourself these questions before? It takes a lot of work to refine, communicate, and negotiate expectations in a relationship!

We chat about:

  • How it felt to work towards fulfilling each other's expectations, and watch each other work towards fulfilling expectations set by ourselves or our family...some of which we disagree with
  • How it felt when our expectations (of various levels of importance) were met, or not met

Regardless of whether you're in a relationship, we hope our stories help you more intentionally: 

  • Articulate what qualities are important to you, and why
  • How to consider family and friends' expectations of your partner 
  • Reconsider expectations that aren't supporting you or your current/future relationship
