Join us, your hosts Briar Harvey and Heather Claus, as we navigate the intricate world of dating and relationships for individuals with neurodiverse brains. We'll tackle the emotional roller coaster that can accompany dating, from managing mania, depression, and impulsivity to coping with rejection sensitivity. Learn how understanding these emotions and effectively communicating them to your partners can positively influence your relationships. We also touch on the importance of self-acceptance, setting boundaries, and adopting a lighthearted approach when discussing neurodiversity.

Listen in as we dissect the significance of understanding and maintaining boundaries, especially in relationships where one or both partners are neurodiverse. Explore how your awareness of your own intellectual and physical resources can greatly impact your relationships. We’ll discuss the nuances of communication styles, social cues, and how sensory overload can affect interactions with others. We emphasize the importance of preserving autonomy in relationships and provide strategies for setting boundaries effectively.

Don't miss our deep conversation about the challenges faced by neuro-spicy individuals in relationships. We outline six types of boundaries - emotional, intellectual, physical, material, sexual, and time - and discuss how they can be influenced by neuro-spicy traits. We encourage open and honest communication about one's neuro-spicy nature and invite partners to do the same. Learn how creating a "user guide" can help you better understand and communicate your needs and preferences in relationships. Remember to embrace and own your neuro-spicy differences to improve your relationship dynamics.
