the love compassHello dear friends!

I’d like to have a family chat to keep you all up to date on a few changes that have happened. I had originally founded the blog in October 2013 under ericadjossa.com. There has been such an amazingly positive response from all of the readers and the blog has even managed to catch the attention of America’s Relationship Expert Dr. Wendy Walsh, who has brought me on her team as her writer/editor. Many of you have emailed comments and questions, wanting to learn more about how to navigate your way to a secure and lasting relationship. Things have really started to take off and for the past while I have really felt that the blog is developing into something that is bigger then myself.

I had originally started writing blog posts out of my passion for relationships. The more I began to dive into writing and interacting with my readers, the more I am realizing the amount of people who are struggling to navigate relationships. We live in an age where sex is in high supply and people are consuming relationships like they are Big Macs. Much like fast food, we make the decision to enter relationships impulsively; we binge on something we know we shouldn’t and we begin to crave these patterns that are not good for us. Junk food sex and relationships are running rampant in our culture and the result is malnutritioned relationships.

Science and technology have revolutionized our generation. We now have an understanding of the nutritious value of food, what is good to consume and what can potentially cause disease later in life. We carry around access to the entire world in our pockets and interact on a global scale.

How the heck are we still aimlessly wandering in and out of relationships?

Everyday I become more aware that the majority of our culture has very little relationship literacy. There is a common lack of understanding when it comes to how relationships work and how our dating choices will affect the long-term outcome of our relationships. This realization is the reason I have created The Love Compass.

Over the past decade, psychologists and other social scientists have uncovered some groundbreaking research that has a major impact on how we understand attachment and romantic relationships. My goal is to translate psychological gibberish into English and use these principles to help point you in the right direction.

In a way, this is what I have been doing all along. However, I felt the need to rename and make the move to The Love Compass because I get the sense that this is so much bigger then just me: this is a problem that our entire generation is facing. I am proposing we revolt against the system. It is time to do things differently. In the same way science brought awareness to the quality of the food we consume, resulting in a healthy eating movement, I too want to begin a shift towards the consumption of healthy relationships. Many of us are obese in the area of sex and serial relationships, but our hearts remained malnourished.

Navigating your way to a lasting connection can be so much easier and more productive—all you need a compass.

Lastly, I just want to say thank you so much to all my readers and supporters. There is nothing more rewarding then being able to join you on your journey to finding love. To stay up to date with the revolt and to join me on my journey, you can subscribe to blog. In order to be effective, a revolt needs numbers, so please share The Love Compass with your friends who could use some help navigating their way to love.

If you have a question, a story, or a topic that you think needs to be featured on the blog to help more people find their way, email me at Erica (at) the-love-compass (dot) com. I want to ensure my posts are real and relevant to the everyday roadblocks you experience.

Wishing you love and connection,

P.s. The change from http://www.ericadjossa.com to http://www.the-love-compass.com went pretty smoothly. Ericadjossa.com will redirect to The Love Compass so that the transition is as seamless as possible. One unfortunate hiccup that occurred during the switch is that all of the Facebook likes and comments disappeared from all of the posts! : (  In the grand scheme of things it was a minor glitch, but it would be AWESOME if you would go on a liking and sharing frenzy so that people can see that I have friends and I am not just talking to myself. That would be weird. :p
