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

Bedtalks Relationship Podcast Ep. 6 – What is the Foundation of Your Relationship?
I have an important question for you: What is the Foundation of Your Relationship? As you know, without the proper foundation, it's hard to build anything solid.

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

8 Tips For The Person Who Is About To Give Up On Love
If you asked my friends one of my worst qualities, they would probably say it is the fact that I can be annoyingly analytical. I tend to overthink things. Sometimes that has worked well for me, but often it has the opposite effect especially when it related to my relationships. Then something strange happened. I stopped overthinking, assuming what the other person in the relationship was thinking, or figuring out in my mind what their actions might mean. I had to do a complete juxtaposition. I almost gave up on love because I started to think that maybe it just wasn’t meant to be.
