We all have baggage from our past that we either hang onto (tightly) or actively work at letting go. If we can’t…we remain broken. As a relationship and dating coach , I encourage my clients to manage their connections consciously from day 1.

The biggest joy has been watching men’s faces as they are truly listened to and appreciated for their willingness to share. Have fun and good luck.

People in long distance relationships are like the kid in your class who does the extra hard math problems at the end of each section just for fun. Or the person who wakes up at 4AM to run 16 miles every day, up a mountain in the rain. They’re doing what most of us do, except they’re making it a thousand times harder than it needs to be.
