I talked with Sarah Burris about her spiritual path and professional work.

By day Sarah Burris does online media and blogs about issues pertaining to young people and progressive policy at Future Majority - but after hours, she's looking for love.  After two long relationships in high school and college, she traveled the country from campaign to campaign focusing on her career.  Now in a long term job and stable location in Washington DC, she decided to get back out there.  Her only problem, she has no idea what she's doing.  She's chronicling her dating adventures and misadventures with the men and women of the Beltway at HavingItBothWays.com

We discussed the nature of monogamy and polyamory with reference to her article "Fear Sets In: What If I Fall In Love?"http://sarahburris.org/having-it-both-ways-fear-sets-in-what-if-i-fall-in-love/

We discussed the movies "Friends with Kids", "Friends with Benefits", and "No Strings Attached". We will discuss life stages. We will discuss soul mates and relationships based on vows, contracts, and commitment.

We discussed polyamory as reported in "Love's New Frontier"http://www.boston.com/bostonglobe/magazine/articles/2010/01/03/loves_new_frontier

We discussed Helen Fisher's research on relationships based on the reward mechanisms of the brain and about different generation attitudes towards relationships, from The Greatest Generation's focus on security and marriage, to the Baby Boomer's emphasis on free love, to the Millennials notion of "hooking up"
