The Favors Life Recovery Coaching Curriculum: Relationship Readiness Assessment & Reflection Journal

Introduction

The Relationship Readiness Series, Competency Assessment, Online Learning Content helps you to gauge where you are, where you are going, and what you ultimately believe before you enter a romantic relationship, long-term, even if you believe you know how romantic relationships function or how they should function. 

Five-Part Curriculum

The Relationship Readiness & Assessment Curriculum is five-part:

  • Social Psychology Topics
  • Relationship Readiness Competency
  • Exit Planning Objectives
  • Post-Exit Planning Objectives
  • Post-Relationship Reflections

These five areas are central to understanding the decisions you must make in ending one relationship before beginning another.

General Mission

The mission of the Relationship Readiness & Assessment Curriculum is simply to help you gauge whether you are ready and suitable for romantic relationship building. 

Purpose

The mission of the Pre-Relationship Competency Assessment, Online Learning Content serves to encourage 18-year-old to 45-year-old individuals who have never been in a romantic relationship for longer than a year to assess their readiness for entry into a romantic relationship long-term.

The mission of the Relationship Readiness Series, Competency Assessment, Online Learning Content serves to encourage 18-year-old to 45-year-old individuals to assess their readiness for romantic relationship building, which includes assessing readiness based on age, assessing preparation, assessing finances, and conducting an autopsy of past relationship failure(s). 

Ensuring that individuals have sound finances and assessment of career are both important to determining if entry into the dating market and later marriage is feasible. Therefore, the purpose of the series is to encourage long-term romantic relationship planning.

Learning Objectives

By the end of the series, you will be able to do the following:

1. Assess if you are fit for dating and/or marriage.

2. Assess your ability to enter the dating and/or marriage markets.

3. Review your family background and friendships.

4. Evaluate your life plans.

5. Evaluate your ability to love and your capacity for love.

6. Reflect on finances.

These learning objectives will help you gauge your financial readiness for romantic relationship building.

Setback Measure

It is important to measure whether you have assessed previous romantic relationships. Self-reflection is key to determining if you are psychologically and mentally ready for romantic relationship building. Here are a few questions to consider as you gauge your readiness.

1. Have you ever had a romantic relationship setback?

2. What was the romantic relationship setback? Did your romantic partner cheat?

3. Did you address the romantic relationship setback? Did you seek counseling?

4. How did you resolve the romantic relationship setback?

5. Are you out of romantic relationship setback?

These are basic questions that you must ask yourself before “reaching out” or “reaching for” another romantic partner. Failure to gauge through self-reflection will undoubtedly create more and future romantic relationship setbacks. Setbacks in romance may hinder your ability to build future romantic relationships.

Romantic Relationship Competence

Romantic Relationship Competence is not something that we often gauge. We figure that if we are not in a relationship with someone, then we just need to enter another relationship regardless of if we are certain of readiness. 

The relationship competence videos are introductory but insightful and informative concerning your past relationship failures, what you hope to accomplish in your romantic relationship building, and why you feel that relationships are important to you.

Relationship Exit & Post-Exit Planning

Exiting and closing out previous romantic relationships is necessary and not optional. Self-reflection is important to deciding whether to engage in another romantic relationship. Keeping romantic relationships at arm’s length while you “try a new relationship” is unproductive and may be life-threatening. 

Courage is needed to end relationships that are no longer working and/or functioning in the way you expect them to. Relationship failure has much to do with our own refusals to set romantic relationship goals. Exit planning should be a primary goal before entering another relationship. 

The audio discussions for exit and post-exit planning are useful for helping you self-assess and self-reflection.
