Bedtalks Relationship Podcast Ep. 6 – What is the Foundation of Your Relationship?

Listen in as K and I discuss on Bedtalks how two people c...

One friend of mine would often say to me that you will get a 1,000 no’s before you get a yes and while the number is extreme, I think this metaphor has some trut...
