Each day it seems as if a different Hollywood couple is announcing the end of their union. Not only may these high profile breakups dash our idea of the picture perfect romance, but they cause us to question, “If they can’t make it, what hope is there for me?” 

In this talk, we will examine love from a scientific perspective. We will discuss our basic human needs, the components of love, as well as what leads to the demise of relationships. We will also take a close look at the dark side of relationships and the process of breaking up.

Learn useful tips which you can employ to protect your relationships- both romantic and platonic, as well as cover some commonly held misconceptions about love and dating.
