  1. I’ve been searching for solutions to help in my relationship. I’m also a Senior TED Fellow. I’ve been watching TED and TEDx talks since 2007. This was an excellently crafted talk for two. It exemplifies the content they communicate so well. It also offers simple yet valuable insights and lessons through a simple story arch. Excellent TEDx talk worthy of the TED mainstage. Do you all have a book out? It reminds me of a fav quote. “Intentionality without habituality is empty. Habituality without intentionality is dead.”

  2. I suspected my wife of cheating on me but I never had any proof. This went on for months, I didn't know what to do. i was so paranoid and decided to find a solution, i saw a recommendation about a PI/Hacker and decided to contact him. I explained the situation about my wife to him and he said he was going to help me.I gave him all the informations he required and afterwards i received all my wife’s phones Text messages and calls, I was hurt when i saw a picture of my wife and her lover. I feel so bad about infidelity. but i am glad Mr james was able to help me get all this information, if you need help,you can contact him through Gmail : Worldcyberhackers or WhatsApp: +1 (267) 877‑3020‬, infidelity hurts

  3. To be honest, no one really deserves to be cheated upon and i believe being smart is essential in any relationship, my worst experience was discovering my 7 years cheating husband through the help of an hacker who helped cloned his cell and I got access to all his Call logs, Text messages, Whats-app, Facebook, Messenger, I-cloud, GPS location, Kik, Snap-chat, Instagram, Skype, Twitter, Email and Social media chat, i was able to read both his new and deleted messages without touching it. I was hurt when i saw a picture of my husband and his lover, i felt so bad about infidelity. I’m here in Texas, USA and was able to access his phone while he was away cheating in the UK and saw all the proofs i needed for a divorce and even terrible things they had planned. Hacking of accounts or any other type of hacking and retrieval of data. His services are trusted and guaranteed and also affordable. Contact this Genius via Gmail (anonymoustracker007) or Via Whats-app +44 (786) 207-2605. I hope you find peace of mind just like i did after discovering the truth.

  4. My partner and I have been together almost 9 years now, moved in together after dating a few months, so living together almost 9 years too. 2 years into our relationship we both lost our jobs and our home, all we had was our car and some clothes and furniture, for more than a year we couldn't find work and had to rely on my parents to support us and give us a place to stay, it was a tough year and we often talk about it now 6 years later, but what stood out for us the most was all the happy memories we both had and how we both remember that time as what brought us closer. in my opinion relationships take work, understanding and trust, when we have an argument I always tell him this is a "we" problem, no matter the situation 50% of the responsibility is yours and 50% mine, before criticizing think what your role in the problem was and what your roll in the solution will be. don't assume your partner knows how much you love and appreciate them, tell them. our favourite thing to do as a couple is take a long drive on Sundays and just talk, it's a time for us to "check in" with the relationship, discuss our plans and goals and to make sure we're still on the same track, we have also promised, no divorce, adultery or abuse.

  5. Such a great talk and so many mindgems.
    You can tell how genuinely they love and appreciate one another by the body language and way of listening to each other.

    No relationship is perfect. It all depends on how much you want to sustain in the intimate soulful connection with somebody or the lack thereof.

    Love love love.
