Rewrite your love story


Love makes the world go round; love is the key, I’d do anything for love…There are a million songs and clichés about love, but we want to look beyond the pink hearts and get real – to the nuts and bolts of building a healthy romantic relationship after the ‘crack cocaine’ of lust wears off.

About Psychologies

It’s all about love this month. In our 18-page Dossier we look at the reality of making your relationships work once the rush of lust wears off. We encourage you to choose to love each other, imperfections and all. For those who are struggling, we’re giving away our 30-day ‘How to save your relationship’ online course with relationship expert Sarah Abell– worth £47. We are also looking at how to navigate bringing up teenage children with our coaching columnist Kim Morgan, plus discover a new way to deal with grief - over dinner! Gratitude is the theme of our special gift guide for Christmas and beyond. We’ve partnered with Etsy, our favourite online portal for unique gifts made with love. Who and what are you grateful for this month?
