What Is NRE?

New Relationship Energy, and Why You Should Know About It?

Mou and Jenoa are back with more relationship, sex and dating advice and education.

In this episode the girls discuss NRE- New Relationship Energy, a term commonly used by polyamorous and non monogamous groups to describe the early stages of a relationship where one feels excited, elated, high on “love drugs” aka hormones and endorphins like oxytocin, serotonin and dopamine and may not be in sound mind to make long term decisions.

The girls caution against signing long term contracts during this time- marriage, pregnancy, buying a house, and for poly people NRE stands as a reminder to not neglect your prior commitments.
