The Love Fix

Jul 16, 2021

Sherry and Carla start the show talking about how good it feels to have in-person meetups with friends again (taking safety precautions) and then take a Love Fix question about how to know when it’s right for your new love interest to see where you live. Then, they welcome coach and Marriage and Family Therapist Bree Jenkins on, where she talks about the current landscape of digital dating. Bree shares the important things to make sure you have if you are back out there online looking for love, and how to see ghosting as a blessing. Bree also gives us an easy way to spot red flags in both our own behavior and within our dates, and it leads to a discussion about disclosing a previous affair in a new relationship.
