Thank you for this — it was incredible to identify corollaries between my own relationship-building in LA and the points outlined here.

I am putting together a few workshops at my university to help students learn the potential life-changing relationships that await them (should they decide to dedicate the time and effort) as well as how to initiate and navigate those initial relationships (not touching the burning stove etc.). Do you mind if I use some of this content for the workshops?
