Real-Time Relationships Review

    After my four-year relationship with my first boyfriend failed, I began an arduous process of understanding what went wrong, and reexamining what it means to be in a healthy relationship. I spent a year reflecting, and the next six months reconstructing my philosophy on love. Many of these new notions were dismantled when I fell in love again, but the wisdom from two books created a foundation that would stick and be built upon for the strength of that new relationship. Those two books were Don After my four-year relationship with my first boyfriend failed, I began an arduous process of understanding what went wrong, and reexamining what it means to be in a healthy relationship. I spent a year reflecting, and the next six months reconstructing my philosophy on love. Many of these new notions were dismantled when I fell in love again, but the wisdom from two books created a foundation that would stick and be built upon for the strength of that new relationship. Those two books were Don Miguel’s The Mastery of Love, and Real-Time Relationships: The Logic of Love by Stefan Molyneux.The book mainly focused on and explored two ideas: healthy communication, and one of my core values, honesty. As Molyneux explains, it is not only important to be honest with others, but with yourself as well. His philosophy challenges readers to look deeper within themselves to discover the roots of their emotional triggers. The Real-Time Relationship further demonstrates how to communicate one’s emotions with their significant other, and how the couple can help each other with the subsequent exploration of said emotions. It's less an application of logic and more an application of virtue.Though Molyneux’s philosophy can help improve anyone’s relationships and friendships, his language does tend to border on hyperbolic. He also includes political examples from his libertarian viewpoint, which, as a libertarian myself, do not bother me, but may seriously put off readers of other political persuasions. I find these two aspects of the book to be significant writing flaws; a message such as this one should be accessible to as wide a range of people as possible (of course it could be that this matter is low on Molyneux's goals for the book). However, if one can look past that to the core of this book, they will find a guide for finding deep, genuine intimacy with their loved ones.

    I feel like I was too brief and too quick to review and rate this book. This book is going to help you analyze your relationships and what you should expect and what others should expect from you. Period. It will absolutely make you think about how you approach your relationships, and whether it's a win-win or a win-lose scenario (which we are mostly brought up win-lose, so it's the norm). When you do find someone who wants a win-win, and who truly wants the truth because they have absolute trus I feel like I was too brief and too quick to review and rate this book.

When you do find someone who wants a win-win, and who truly wants the truth because they have absolute trust and respect for you to tell them, it's a wonderful thing. I'm going to warn you though: It's extremely uncommon to find a person like that. You have to really search. But it's very difficult to put some of this book into practice and filter the ones around for convenience vs actual friendship. Actual friendship where honesty and virtue is at the core. Where you aren't afraid to speak your mind. In fact, when you do, those people love you more for being open and honest vs petty and defensive. This book is going to be for people who are curious enough to want to know why people feel the way they do towards them. They are genuinely interested in the reason people are in their lives, etc. It's a pretty great book but start with On Truth: The Tyranny of Illusion first.

    This book was my least favorite of Molyneux's books. I didn't get it at all. I'm not sure human relationships are something that can be logically described or defined. Worth reading, after reading all of his other books.

    This may be one of the better books by Stefan Molyneux, and it is not because I suddenly appreciate the style of writing, or that I like the certainty Molyneux sometimes assert things with, and neither because the philosophy is different. It is all about the scope of the topic, relationships, with which Molyneux manages to touch upon very much in his philosophical framework in an orderly and coherent way.

It is all about the scope of the topic, relationships, with which Molyneux manages to touch upon very much in his philosophical framework in an orderly and coherent way. It is not exactly a book I would recommend to anyone, I feel that one have to be familiar with the author himself in order to not be blown away by some of the issues that are put fort rather matter of factly. If you are familiar, or interested in his views, maybe by listening to the podcast, this book will get you behind the philosophy and psychology of Molyneux thinking. Here you will find the building of the whole argument regarding relationships and on the way, it will give you a lot to think about and a multitude of good quotes to have in your pocket. This is also one of the longer books Molyneux has written, so there are parts that feel repetitive and somewhat unnecessary, but they are also there for a reason in order to elaborate on the theory.

    Nothing new hereI was so disappointed after reading this book, because with this guy you expect to realize the things you are doing wrong but in this book he just says the same things over and over

    Took me a long time to finish this book seeing as it’s so hands on. Conclusion; the truth hurts but it’s the most beautiful thing. Life is too short for me to be feeling anxious emotions that aren’t needed. A change is coming :)

    "If you continue, and move beyond the theoretical stage and actually understand these principles personally - whether you end up putting them into practice or not - it is likely that very few of your existing relationships will survive this transition."Too real.

    Like a conversation with a good friend. Important information to know."Using false moral arguments to exploit children based on their desire to be good is the very core of corruption and evil.""Love requires honesty, courage, integrity and virtue, both because these traits are admirable, and also because they foster predictability and security in intimate relations."

    This book is easier to read if you have listened to some of the author's podcasts before diving in. He is a Libertarian philosopher, but unlike many I've heard speak, he is positive and hopeful for the future. I found myself talking back to him throughout. He tends to hyperbole sometimes. So, why give it a 4 star? Because it prodded my thinking a lot.
