Show Notes Chapter Markers

Ever wondered if cheating can truly be "accidental"? This episode delves into that thorny topic. No judgement here, but we explore the boundaries that define fidelity, and how they can be blurred due to unforeseen circumstances, including intoxication. We're trying to bring a better understanding of how these incidents occur and the accountability needed in their aftermath.

We proceed to peel back the layers of cheating, exploring its physical and emotional facets. Ever heard of a 'dry drunk'? We draw parallels with this concept, illuminating how neglecting inner work can unexpectedly lead to overstepping relationship boundaries. Our chat considers how these instances can act as mirrors, reflecting deeper issues that may need attention within the relationship.

The terrain gets trickier as we navigate how innocent flirtations can snowball into something more. Meanwhile, we tackle the world of catfishing - yes, it's a real thing! We consider the possible entrepreneurial motives behind this trend and its implications on trust in relationships. Through all this, the heart of our conversation is communication and boundary setting in relationships. It's not just about avoiding mishaps. It's about building stronger, healthier bonds. Don't miss out on this enlightening journey into the intricacies of modern relationships.
