Love is...
Larry B. Gelman, Psy. D.

LBG1 1


Love is the mutual exchange of vulnerabilities within the context of a non-territorial, non-possessive and non–exploitative relationship.

It is further characterized by earning respect, winning cooperation, and evolving trust, whereby, permission and encouragement “to be or not to be” is counter balanced by the consistent challenge to become! 

Ultimately, it is up to each partner, in a healthy, mature adult relationship, to design, develop, implement, maintain, nurture and make “love” into their own image.
