(Spring) Week 4: Healthy Relationships

Hey Guys,
After where we left off last week it seems logical to jump to relationships, why they're a central part of many people's lives, how we tend to not be that great at them, and how we can exlpore what it means to be in a "healthy" relationship. 

There are lots of different ways to talk about relationships, especially romantic or sexual ones, and here are a couple things that might help us get the conversation going:

Men and Physical Intimacy - A bit on how our relationship to each other (as men) is very much a product of the social expectations and norms of our time.

What Constitutes a Healthy Relationship - This is a really great site that gives an overview of the components of a healthy relationship, and some of the different ways that relationships can look.

And lastly, this is a TED talk that has been widely popular because she asks that we do something terrifying in order to be able to develop meaningful connections with the people around us: willingly make ourselves vulnerable.  PLEASE CHECK THIS OUT!
