Emotional Bids are the ways in which we reach out for emotional connection from others.
It is a central component to why any relationship with another can continue to grow or dissolve.
Emotional Bids go back and forth between individuals all the time and how you respond or others respond to you is vital to relationship health. Knowing this essential concept can support your intimate primary relationship, business relationships and friendships.
Emotional Bids are part of the work of relationship researcher Dr John Gottman, author of the book The Relationship Cure written with Joan DeClaire.
Anyone wanting to create better connections in their lives need to know about managing Emotional Bids.
