Failure in Dating-

So I’ve listened to The Connected Life with Abi and Justin for the past year which led me to here... I loved this podcast!!! Bryant is genuine, smart, hilarious and about as transparent as can be. This episode had me actually laughing out loud and in 2020, that’s saying something. So many podcasts that talk about dating leave me feeling 10 steps behind and after this one I was smiling and encouraged. Definitely hit that subscribe button after this listen :)

Defining success as taking risk is my favorite. I found myself taking some notes and realized it’s that good. Quickly becoming part of my routine.
