About the episode

In this episode, host Aditi Kutty and guest Alicia Cerano discussed the importance of romantic passion, various means of sustaining it, and prevalent myths surrounding it in relationships.

Drawing from her academic background and professional experiences, Alicia emphasized the importance of passion in a relationship as something that binds two people together, reveals their compatibility with each other, and acts as a barometer of relationship health over time.

She also discussed tactics involving continuous communication, adapting to each other’s needs, and finding “low-cost” and “high-cost” ways to connect, as a way to keep the passion alive throughout the years.

Alicia also debunked common misconceptions about what keeps the romantic spark alive, such as the belief that passion only flares once and then is gone forever, and the need for constant newness or excitement in a relationship.

To keep the flame stoked, she encouraged couples to find ways to repurpose personal interests into shared experiences. She stressed that even if partners don’t share the same hobbies or interests, it’s crucial to focus on discovering sensory experiences that ignite the spark, finding activities that both enjoy, and maintaining open communication.

Overall, Alicia’s philosophy recognizes and adapts to the evolving nature of relationships. She also placed heavy emphasis on the importance of understanding and valuing each other’s unique needs and desires.

Couples who want to keep the flame alive in long-term relationships must consciously recognize the importance of shared passion and find ways to cultivate it with the person they love. This episode will guide them in that exploration.
