    Today's question comes from Ivy. [edited for brevity's sake]


     


    "I caught my partner of two years on dating apps and meeting up with other women. Can somebody who habitually lies ever truly change your opinion and what they might have to do to make that change fully?"

    Today's question comes from Sam. [edited for brevity's sake]


     


    "I am HIV-positive, and I've been on treatment and undetectable for several years. I'm just starting to date new guys again, and I'm having a really difficult time with the disclosure conversation. I'm not public with my status, and there's a lot of stigmas out there for HIV. So these conversations just make me really nervous. Do you have any advice or tips on having tough conversations like this?"

    Today's question comes from Jessica from Dallas, TX. [edited for brevity's sake]


     


    "I asked out a friend at work via instant message, and he ignored me. We have to see each other at work all the time. We had a good rapport. There was some flirting, and I was really prepared for any response except being ignored. So what should I do? Should I approach him, or should I let it go? "

    Today's question comes from Michaela from Vancouver, BC.


    Michaela's question [edited for brevity's sake]


    "Is it OK for men to have female friends? I'm talking to a guy with several female friends, including an ex from years ago.


    He thinks that it's all right to hang out one-on-one and stay in touch with them and that I should have no issue with it. 


    Most men I talk to don't understand why I need boundaries around this. 


    Help?"

Motherhood Simplified ,

Container of love

I’m not sure how, but Shaun has figured out how to create a masculine container of energy via a podcast that’s allowed for me to heal so much of my wounded feminine energy and move forward with clarity and confidence in my love life. Very grateful for stumbling across this one day.
