DV 002: 5 1/2 Communication Mistakes To Avoid In Your Relationship With Pina De Rosa

categories: Podcast, Relationship Experts

The response to our first podcast episode has been remarkable.  If you haven’t had a chance to check it out, you can find it here.  There, Olga and I shared the fun story of how we met on a plane in 2005, the six long years of me being stuck in the friend zone, and our recent wedding.  Plus, we identified the 7 Habits Of Highly Happy Couples and identified how we are applying those habits in our relationship and where we are falling short.

In terms of the format of the podcast going forward, Olga and I will occasionally have episodes where it is just the two of chatting about what we have learned and continue to learn about cultivating an amazing relationship.    In other episodes, like this one, you’ll hear Olga interview top relationship experts. 

In today’s episode, Olga welcomes Pina De Rosa, an award winning Film Producer, Master Results Coach and NLP Trainer, and President/CEO of Gratitude International LLC, a company with a worldwide client base committed to empowering people to living their fullest potential.  Pina offers us practical insight into how to (and how not to) communicate in your relationship.  You can listen to the episode in the player below, and we encourage you to subscribe to the Podcast on iTunes.  


To be more specific, in this session you’ll learn about:

  • The 5 ½ mistakes to avoid in communication with the opposite sex
  • The difference between female and male brains, and how that affects communication
  • Men and women’s different perspectives of the the world differently
  • Pina’s concept of “Jedi-Listening”
  • Why hints are only ½ a communication
  • How to communicate with your partner when you are upset
  • How to communicate your intimacy needs with your partner
  • How you can get a complimentary 1-hour session with Pina De Rosa
  • Plus so much more!

DV 001: Launch Of The Datevitation Podcast & 7 Habits Of Highly Happy Couples

categories: Podcast

We are excited to introduce the Datevitation Podcast.  Your host is the one and only, Olga Karpman (who happens to be my beautiful wife).    In many of the episodes, you’ll hear Olga interview top experts in the field of love, relationship, dating, and marriage.  On occasion, Olga and I will have our own episodes where we’ll chat about what we have learned and continue to learn about cultivating an amazing relationship.  Here is the awesome new artwork we have for the Podcast.


This first episode is an introduction to the Podcast.   In the first half of the episode, we talk about what to expect in the coming weeks and months, and then spend some time introducing ourselves and the story of how we met, fell in love, and got married.   Olga is originally from Siberia and I’m from Los Angeles, and we were lucky enough to meet on a plane in 2005.  For all the juicy details (including how I got stuck in the “friend zone” for nearly six years before we got together), you can listen to the episode in the player below. In the latter half of the episode, Olga and I identify 7 Habits of Highly Happy Couples.  We talk candidly about how we are doing in practicing these 7 habits, and where we can do better.


In each episode, we’ll have show notes (like this!) with a brief description of what we discussed, as well as links to any videos/books/articles/etc. that we mentioned.  That way, if you are driving in the car or on a run while you are listening, you don’t have to worry about remembering any specific references we make on the podcast.   You can always find the show notes by going to datevitation.com/blog/[Episode#].  For instance, in this case for the first episode, the notes can be found at datevitation.com/blog/episode1
