    Patricia and Joe are one of the most memorable couples in Dating While Gray history. We first met them in Season 2 just after they developed romantic feelings for each other through virtual communications. (You may recall Patricia initially was reluctant to get involved with Joe.) They join Laura again to share the magical coincidence that was the foundation for Patricia deciding to give Joe another chance.

Believe it! Coach ,

Finally a podcast for us!

So many golden nuggests to be found epecially in your episode called Baggage Claim. I know that I struggled with the fear of rejection when sharing my experiences and feeling that my "baggage" defined me. I have found that with vulnerability comes deep intimacy and my current partner sees my baggage as the very things that have made me who I am. I would agree that as we love and fully accept ourselves, others love and accept who we are, even are darker parts. Thank you for brining this to the light.
