Argue Naked! And Other Epic Love Strategies…

Just Say “NO!” to Mediocre Love!

If you’ve been following The Loveumentary for any amount of time, you know that I’m fascinated with extraordinary relationships.

I love the amazing outliers of love. The couples who are doing what the rest of the world seem unable to grasp.

I love them because not only does their existence prove that mind-blowing love is possible, but I believe if we surround ourselves with these couples, study them, and learn from them, extraordinary love can be accessible to every one of us!

I’m inspired by the idea of living in a society that stops reading all of the trendy self-help books and articles that talk about cherishing relationships and experiences over things, and instead starts living it.

I am stoked for the day when the quality of your love is no longer measured by how long a couple has been together, but the connection, passion, and joy a couple creates together, and the impact they have on their community.

I hope you enjoy watching this TEDx talk. A lot of love, effort, and thought went into it.

If you enjoy it, please share it.

I'm the creator of The Loveumentary. I believe that just like art, language, and music, love is a skill that can be developed and mastered if you have the right training, mentors, and a high level of commitment. My hope is to help bring the possibility of extraordinary love to you and others like you. Thanks for reading! Please drop me a line or leave a comment if you have any questions or feedback.

    This is so inspiring! I love that you are leading the charge against the stereotypical, boring and mundane love story (boy meets girl, boy and girl fall in love, get married, and then lose interest in each other but stick it out and make each other miserable. YUCK!). I too have seen couples that are magic together, but we’re taught that this isn’t normal and that we shouldn’t expect so much. Thank you for sharing these powerful stories of love with us, and in doing so may we all be courageous enough to believe in this kind of love for ourselves.

    Wow, this is a wonderful TEDx Talk! After spending 40 years married to the wrong man, I still hold out hope that I’ll find the kind of extraordinary, passionate and joyous love of which you speak.

    Wow, little did I expect to listen to this talk and hear you mention Ty and Terri Schenzel. I never had the pleasure of meeting them, but my best friend lives in Omaha and when the accident was announced, she called me and we had a LONG talk about them. About their powerful love and legacy. How cool that you, also, were affected by them, too.

    Thank you for all you do to make this world a more purposed and meaningful place. We may have different vocations, but surely the same goal! 🙂

    I almost suggested you come to Illinois and interview my grandparents- Christopher and Elinora. Married for over sixty five years, they would tell you the best piece of advice is simply loving each other exactly as they are. Accepting each other with no expectations of them being any different. They are my love heroes!

    Keep on doing what you’re doing! It’s a wonderful thing.
