A single, burning question about love and relationships, every season. Explored through stories. Hosted by Boston Globe advice columnist Meredith Goldstein.
#9 Save It for Later
Knowing whether your partner is "the one" can be hard. Especially when you meet earlier in life. It’s tough to know who is truly here to stay, and who may just be right for the moment. That was true for Monica, who fell for a guy in college and then wasn’t so sure. Hers is a story about multiple new beginnings, and about the importance of getting to know yourself before going all in on someone else. Email us at email@example.com.
#8 The Connecticut Wife
Many of us have clear expectations for our romantic lives. We envision a certain kind of partner, a certain kind of relationship. But Nicole found her new beginning after giving herself permission to change course. The end result? She’s built a life she never imagined for herself. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
#7 Boyfriend Person
Trenni used to pity the “boyfriend people” -- women she knew whose lives seemed to revolve around a guy. She valued her independence and wore it like a badge of honor. Then, a chance encounter on the street led her to a life-changing discovery. Email us at email@example.com.
#6 How to Step-Mom
When a step-parent enters the picture, it can be an especially fraught new beginning -- for everyone involved. Stacie discovered this after she and Tim decided to make a life together. Tim came with two kids; Stacie had none. Nor did she have any idea -- at first, anyway -- what it meant to be a step-mom. Plus, Meredith and her sister, Brette, sing Mary Poppins. Sort of.

#5 This Beautiful Thing for Right Now
It’s hard to not worry about the future. We all want to know how things are going to work out. For Meighan, her romantic path seemed clear. Until … it didn’t. That’s when she learned to let go of tomorrow and just live for today. Email us at email@example.com.
#4 Her Mother's Daughter
When Letitia needed inspiration for her new beginning, she found it in the most natural place: from her mother, who showed Letitia how to keep her heart open to new love. Even when it seemed so overwhelming. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Well thought out and produced. This is not one of those aimlessly rambling, zero concept podcast. This is a focused, well written, funny podcast that is actually educational and echos real life. Thank you!
Could be better only if…
I really like the stories. And I cuss like a sailor but hearing the “f” word so often is distracting to be honest. It really takes away from the quality of these interesting stories.
Joy and hope
Love this podcast the stories the vibes and most importantly Meredith! She cracks me up and love every single topic that’s been published it’s so hard to choose my favorite. She continues to inspire me and to have hope in love once again. Keep up the good work!! <3
