Codependency Explained – 3 Signs ft. Elizabeth Overstreet and Mark Rosenfeld

Codependency Explained – 3 Signs ft. Elizabeth Overstreet and Mark Rosenfeld
Recently, I had an interview and discussion with Mark Rosenfeld, a Relationship Expert, about the topic of codependency. It's one of the dating and relationship advice questions Mark and I are asked about often. We wanted to simplify codependency, explain codependency and help people wrap their heads around this important, but often misunderstood concept. This topic struck a nerve and started a lot of discussion amongst my followers across my social media. I am intrigued about the topic and I think it's always important to provide additional explanation and context especially around a topic...

Bedtalks Relationship Podcast Ep. 21 – Who’s Your Ideal Partner?

Bedtalks Relationship Podcast Ep. 21 – Who’s Your Ideal Partner?
Do you have a type? Most of us do. Have you ever met someone who looked like they would be your type but once you got to know them, the opposite occurred? It's important to have an understanding of what you need, want, and desire in a partner. Finding someone who is compatible and recognizing someone who is an ideal partner isn't always easy.
