My name is Aziz. I am a LoveSnob, co-host and co-founder of The AccountableLove Podcast. I have been interested in personal relationships for most of my life. “Love is my only addiction” and raising the standard of “Love” has always been my message. I never understood why people believe “Love” is an emotion, when emotions are fleeting. Love is a faith and too many times I have watched that faith being used as a crutch to accept bad behavior. I have been called unrealistic because I believe “Love” means being accountable and reliable.
When my heart was broken at a young age, I lost my faith and refused to commit to anyone. Kissing people I didn’t like, having sex with people I never intended on making my girlfriend; I lost my principles and my Love for myself. In the process, I shared moments that were meant to be cherished. I knew better, so,that mentality only lasted for a summer. I rediscovered my faith and I started teaching AccountableLove to who ever would listen. Until, a friend of mine, Melissa Shields said we should start a podcast, I asked Jerri to be my co-host, and AccountableLove Podcast was born. We aren’t only trying to educate people about their worth. We want them to see the worth in building healthier relationships. “Because we are good as one but we are Great as many working as one”. No one should go through life alone….
My name is Jerri. I am a LoveSnob and co-host of The AccountableLove Podcast. I started examining my relationships after a few happy and heartbreaking experiences with relationships. I noticed how I never had an issue with transparency in my romantic partners and Friendships yet I was always asked to read everyone else’s minds. I always felt that Love should equal “AccountableLove” but didn’t necessarily have the terminology. So, after cleaning the skeletons out my life, through a lot of talking and sharing my experiences and lessons. I started challenging my Love ones to do the same.
I watched friends and family memebers accept shortcomings by justifying them, staying in relationships that never reflected Love, and keeping secrets that destroyed them inside out. I started challenging them by asking “what is Love” and it was hard for them to truly give me an answer, but they believed they were in Loving relationships. It was difficult watching them believe in something they couldn’t define. So, when Aziz asked me to be his Co-host of the AccountableLove podcast, it clicked. This can be the perfect platform to get people to “Join the Discussion” and fully take back the faith in “Love” by defining terms of Love.
