If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard someone express feeling unworthy simply because they are single, I would have, like, so many dollars. Seriously. Our society has a way of glorifying coupledom that leaves many folks feeling like finding “the one” is the sole/soul purpose of life. It doesn’t help that our media (I’m looking at you, Disney) tells girls that they will magically be saved one day and that their lives can finally begin once they fall in love.
So, then we enter our teenage years being told that if a boy likes us (forgive the gender binary here), he will be mean to us, so no wonder we put up with bullshit from partners in our adult years. There has already been a message programmed that toxic behavior simply just means we’re broken and need to work harder to MAKE that person love us. But what if you could change how you view this entire narrative? Change how you view your singlehood? Change what you truly believe you deserve in your intimate partnership? Spoiler alert: you can.
This week, I dial up my gal, Giovanna Capozza, a recovering love addict, author, and coach who has literally written the book on breaking up with the addictive “lovesick” behaviors you may be exhibiting in your dating life. If you find yourself shapeshifting to please your partner, ruminating over every little thing they do or say, or cancel all your plans to accommodate them, you won’t want to miss this. And, you may actually be a little bit lovesick. Tune in and find out.
This pod explores:
- How you might be using your singlehood as a “waiting room” for your life to begin and what to do about it
- The four primary attachment styles (yes, there are actually four!)
- The very first assignment Giovanna suggests you start with if you want to alter your relationship with codependency
- What love addictive behaviors look like and how our society and family of origin programs us to be love addicts

THIS WEEK’S ‘DIAL AN EXPERT’ GUESTIE
Founder of Love Well Coaching, Author and recovering love addict, Giovanna Capozza’s journey from lovesick to Love Well is a journey so many of us can relate with. Part spiritual Seeker. Part solo travel enthusiast. Part geeked out self- improvement and science junkie. Giovanna found comfort in exploring the globe on the search for herself. A lifetime of searching for “the one” only led her to discover that finding him would mean finding herself… first.
A certified Coach and Mind Body Therapy Facilitator, Functional Medicine Practitioner, Homeopath, Yoga Teacher and Energy Healer, Giovanna coaches women everywhere to love themselves and the journey; not just the destination. Giovanna bought her first “relationship book” at age 19, still loves a good rom-com and believes that happy endings aren’t found but made.
