The 7-Day Emotional Connection Challenge

Love is a journey, not a destination. Explore your partner's inner world while learning the skills to deepen your emotional connection in just 7 days.

Love is a journey, not a destination...

    Unfortunately, many of us stop exploring on our journey of love and find ourselves stranded. After one year, seven years, or maybe after a decade of relationship together, we find ourselves having to pull over to the side of the road. Seemingly, our tank is empty; we've run out of gas:

  • “We don’t have interesting conversations and I’m not sure how to spark that. I don’t know how to get back to where we were when we first met.”
  • “I’ve been married for 15 years and my husband says he isn’t “in love” with me and feels we are roommates. How can we reconnect?”
  • “My wife and I express ourselves completely differently so we have a hard time understanding each other.”
  • “Since I don’t feel emotionally connected with him, I struggle to want to connect with him sexually.”

Telltale Signs of Weak Emotional Connection

Traits of a Strong Emotional Connection

Weak emotional connection comes from getting stuck on relationship obstacles, like:

  1. Sinking in Quicksand: You're slowly sinking and desperately in need of attention from your partner. Instead, you feel invisible, lonely, and scared in your relationship. No matter what you try, it seems you just sink deeper and further away from your partner.
  2. Never Ending Thunder Storm: Your partner is critical of you. You feel like nothing you do is ever right to them. It feels like the sun never comes out, and what you need right now to get by, is just a little light.
  3. Blown Tire: The car of your relationship has blown a tire, but instead of repairing the tire you start arguing with each other about whose fault it was.
  4. Frozen: Your sex life is practically frozen or, perhaps, completely non-existent. There's no emotional warmth in your relationship.
  5. No Shelter in the Storm: You've got work stress, health issues, or other life stressors. You feel your partner doesn't care—about these problems, or even about you. You feel emotionally abandoned.

Strong emotional connection leads to the following experiences, on your journey together:

  1. Adventure Buddy: When something comes up, you know your partner's got your back. You're teammates, not antagonists, against any problems in your relationship.
  2. More Sunshine: Sure, you have rainy days together, but you and your partner are affectionate, understanding, and can even laugh during conflict. This is because your relationship's built on strong emotional connection.
  3. Repair Flat with a Spare: When something goes wrong in your relationship, you focus on finding solutions; on repairing the problem; on getting back on the road to lasting love.
  4. Cozy Fires and Snuggles: When you have sex, it's like cuddling near a fire with your lover. There's an emotional warmth that makes romance last through difficult times, during life stressors, and through major life changes.
  5. A Safe Shelter: You feel intimately known by your partner and deeply loved. When together, it feels like home.

It's not obstacles that cause a relationship to fail. It's actually the lack of strong emotional connection with your partner.

You can learn the necessary skills to deepen and strengthen your emotional connection to each other, though, in just 7 days.

Your Adventure Guide

Hi there. I'm Kyle Benson, the creator of The 7-Day Emotional Connection Challenge. I've spent the last 8 years immersed in the study of what makes love last — interviewing researchers, consulting experts in this field, and experimenting with my own concepts and strategies, to develop simple, straight-forward, practical, and highly effective tools to help couples build better relationships.

The framework for “The 7-Day Emotional Connection Challenge” is the culmination of my years of study, research and practice, and I’m thrilled to be able to now offer it to you.

Here's a bit more about me and my work:

-> Over 500,000 people read my articles every year and my work has been featured in US News, Business Insider, The Gottman Institute, and more.

-> Over 30,000 people subscribe to my weekly emails on how to find and create healthy and meaningful relationships.

-> In private practice, I've worked with dozens of couples on repairing, strengthening and growing the type of emotional connection that leads to strong, fun and lasting relationships.


WARNING! You May Fall More Deeply In Love

An Emotionally Connected Relationship is a Secure Relationship

The research on lasting, fulfilling, happy relationships is clear: The quality of our emotional connection with our partners has a deep impact, in multiple areas in our lives — self-esteem, physical health, happiness, personal success, and more. How we feel and how we show up in life is intricately tied to the emotional connection — weak or strong! — that we cultivate and grow in our relationship.

Isn't it time you stop feeling lonely and unappreciated? Start feeling important, valued, and loved today, through strengthening the bond in your relationship.


The 7-Day Emotional Connection Challenge combines the very best research with proven emotional connection strategies, that I have personally used with the many couples I see in my practice. I've watched, time and again, couples who began our work together feeling disconnected, lonely, and frustrated, turn their relationships around and achieve wonderful results through the exercises we use in the 7-Day Emotional Connection Challenge. If for any reason, however, The 7-Day Emotional Connection Challenge doesn't work for you, please let me know. I'll gladly offer you a full refund, within 30 days.
