Relationships can be thrilling but also confusing, especially when you’re trying to figure out if someone is meant for the long haul or just a temporary fling. In this segment of “Mental Breakthrough”, hosts Patricia Wu, Jessica Reyes, and guest therapist, Joann ‘JoJo’ Venant, discuss on how to recognize the difference between a potential life partner from those who are just passing through.

Ephemeral Excitement vs. Long-Term Vision

A whirlwind romance can be fun, but if the relationship doesn’t progress beyond the present moment, it may not be sustainable long-term.

Surface-Level Connections vs. Deeper Conversations

Early in a relationship, it’s natural to keep some things light.  However, if avoiding difficult conversations and sharing values becomes a pattern, it may signal a Mr. Right Now situation.

Timelines and Clarity
