Love Magazine is an online periodical dedicated exclusively to the cultivation of healthy relationships. Love Magazine presents courageous, thoughtful, and compelling editorial that empowers others to improve the quality of their relationships and lives. The magazine covers a wide range of relationship topics developed through research, formal education, professional training, and experience.
Love Magazine believes the heart of a meaningful life is illuminated in relationship. Science has established connection as fundamental to an individual’s survival and ability to thrive. The human experience is revealed as we engage with one another not only in love, but also in friendship, work, family, spirituality, and self. In every interaction, an opportunity exists to nurture fulfilling connections or encounter painful or sometimes destructive ones.
At Love Magazine, our mission is to inspire, inform, and support your journey toward healthier personal relationships. Please contact us if we can be of additional assistance.
