What does it mean to be both fearless and conscious in love? In this episode of the VulnerABILITY Podcast, Marisa Donnelly and guest Abe Lopez discuss what it means to have ‘a person,’ and whether the idea of soulmates still exists (and what that really means). They dive into romantic relationships, contemplate the difference between being fearless and foolish in love, and what it means to have dating standards (and whether we should).

The episode starts off with Abe asking a powerful question: What does it mean to have a ‘person?’ A timeless question, people are always searching for ‘the one.’ But does he or she exist? This podcast asks that question (in the sense of both romantic and platonic). Both Marisa and Abe talk about special friends and family members and the roles they’ve played. They discuss what makes someone your ‘person’ or ‘other half’ and whether those terms are silly or relevant.

They also talk about being fearless (not foolish), and being guided by both your heart and your head. Rather than jumping into love without hesitation, they decide that it’s good to jump. But it’s equally good to be smart about your jump, too.
