Episode Description

Did you know that 2017 marks the 50-year anniversary of the film, The Graduate? This was the classic film about the intergenerational relationship between an older woman and a younger man. Well, the cougar-cub relationship has not lost its intrigue! This week on Destination Love, host Chelli Pumphrey interviews intergenerational romantic relationship expert Suzanna Mathews, author of "Revising Mrs. Robinson". We'll be exploring this relationship phenomenon which can be both emboldening and a serious stressor for a lot of single, middle-aged women (even the ones who consider themselves progressive and empowered). Suzanna offers her advice on how to navigate the challenges of an age-gap relationship -- especially where self-sabotaging internal monologue is an obstacle. For women who are in the unfamiliar waters of cross-generational dating, it also empowers them to make the relationship and sexual choices that suit them best and make them with confidence and peace of mind.

The mission of Destination Love is to help people understand why they experience certain feelings, behaviors, and struggles in their relationships through the use of psychology, attachment, and the science of the brain in a fun, intriguing, and engaging format.

I want to empower people to stop relying on fate and fairy tales to find love. Destination Love covers many topics around relationships to help people increase their awareness of self and others, as we explore the science, psychology, and even the more mysterious side of relationships.

Destination Love is not about learning to find love through creating perfect Hollywood looks, a flawless online dating profile, or saying the right words to catch that perfect date. Instead, we empower people with knowledge, to increase people’s courage to be more authentic, and to explore and explain the mysteries of why we do what we do in relationships.
