Looks, humour, kindness, reliability, intelligence; these are some of the qualities that we instinctively search for in a partner. The modern age promises us limitless possibilities. But in reality our choices are often heavily restricted, and far less under our conscious control than we might like to think.
This class explores the key influences that affect the decisions we make about love. Placing partner choice in its cultural context, we trace our personal histories, and discover how our attachment styles determine who we're attracted to - and who we attract. We also consider what we are looking for in a partner, the crucial steps we need to take to make our search more effective, and ways to move towards commitment – or not.
The class helps us to be clearer about our emotional options and the reasons why we might have made less than satisfactory choices in the past.
Our classes have been designed to give useful insights around the big themes in life. You’ll be challenged to think deeply about the issues that matter most, and provided with a space to share your thoughts, ideas and experiences with other curious, open-minded individuals.
These sessions are designed by experts and taught by members of our faculty. They include a mix of lecture and group activity and conversation. Optional homework is provided for those interested in further study.
