Pamela Kelly says:

I am just blow away after listening to this discussion!!! Lord knows I would have loved this info 40 yrs ago. What a gift she brings to all relationships. I am ordering her books in audio. Feel blessed to have come across Esther Perel yesterday. I can feel a change in my relationship of more than 40 yrs after 1 day. Esther brings a totally different perspective than I could have ever imagined!!! I could not thank her enough for sharing so much and not permuting her books non-stop as so many often do. Thanks also to Lewis for having such great guests on all the time……. Warmest of hugs to you both…. KEEP UP THE WONDERFUL WORK YOU BOTH DO TO HELP OTHERS GROW!!!!!!! Esther is like Dr Ruth on steroids!!!

This woman is INCREDIBLE! Her insite is undeniable. Mating is different now, we are changing and evolving but we are trying to not have the conversations about what that means(like adults), rather we are trying to sweep it under the rug. It’s amazing!!

Megan-Jayne Elworthy says:

Ester is so great. Thanks for this interview.

Yangsha Yang says:

I wondered why l fell out of love, l was depress during dating my ex bf, and why l wasn't happy and why l was sad. I started losing feelings for him as time goes by. I realized it was because l didn't get as much space as l can with my friends because l missed my friends very much. He controlled me a lot and didn't let me go anywhere, but during the whole time of the relationship l let him go and hang ou with his friends, etc. And he had a lot of time he got to go out with others. As time went by, he only let me go once in a long time only… but he gets to go most time he wanted… he was insecure and very controlling about me… which he didn't stop and it killed the relationship. I even tried to talk to him about it, but he thinks what he is doing is right. In the end, 2 years was only how long we lasted. I lost feelings for him, and l wasn't happy and l spoke to him about leaving many times, but he wouldn't let go. However the 2nd year we dated going to our 3rd year, he finally let go and probably moved on to other woman. I didn't care as long as l was out of the relationship. I hope he knows it is true that the way he acted towards me killed the relationship and that he shouldn't treat the next woman the same as he did to me because that may kill the relationship as well.
