In The 8 Stages of Love, Armand DiMele, founder of the DiMele Center for Psychotherapy and host of “The Positive Mind” radio show, discusses romantic relationships and how they grow and evolve over time. Following is an excerpt from this program.

You see something in your immune system and something in the chemical system and something in your mental set, leads you to find a person and hook up with them. And by hook up, I mean connect. You don’t know why it is but, you know, given another time this person may not have been appealing. Given another day, given another condition. Like, let’s say you just, you know, you’re feeling old and you meet somebody young, and boom, you feel in love. Or you’re feeling young and you feel like you’ve just been dumped by somebody, so you find somebody older and you fall in love..."
DiMele identifies 8 different stages that couples can go through, and offers wisdom on how to embrace each stage fully.
