Today’s show touches on a pretty sensitive topic. Do you put a lot of pressure on yourself when dating because you desperately want to start a family? Or find potential partners for such a purpose who may not be the right fit?
I believe that doing so can actually make dating a lot trickier. In this episode, I reveal why and talk about what I went through when dating and trying to have a child. I hope it helps you approach your dating life with this desire from a new perspective and with more peace of mind.
