My Boyfriend Doesn’t Want to Marry Me! Should I Leave? - Bonus

EHappy new week, friends! This week’s bonus is a listener email from “Persephone” aka “Adele” aka “Not her real name” who has been in a committed relationship for four years. The problem? She very much wants to get married, whereas her boyfriend is much less enthusiastic about the idea. His excuse? He doesn’t want the financial entanglements, and he’s also against the “traditional” expectations of society (aka college, dating, marriage, kids). Should Adele stay in an otherwise happy relationship, or are his excuses total crap and it's time to bounce?

The Sensitive Topic of Exercise & Why You Can FEEL Someone Looking at You!

EFood and exercise are touchy subjects, especially when you’re trying to help your partner get healthier. But how do you talk to someone about this stuff when they have already a history of disordered eating and low self-esteem? Kathleen’s beloved Peloton has recently become the center of a big disagreement in her home, but it goes much deeper than just an exercise bike. Then, you know that prickly feeling you get when you just KNOW someone is looking at you? It’s not in your head! (Or, rather, it is….) Bethany talks about the creepy phenomenon of “Gaze Detection” and how it works!
