Summer Lovin’: Dating Q&A with Jim Cress

Buckle up y’all because we are GOING there today! My friend and one of your favorite humans, Jim Cress, is in the studio diving into ALL the questions you sent us after our Summer Lovin’ series. All things dating, friendship, sex, and singleness. PHEW! I’m so grateful for Jim and his thoughts as he helps us address these things head on. You may not agree with every single thing we talk about, but my biggest hope is that this episode would spark a conversation with your people.

Because of the topics we cover in this episode, this is one you will want to listen to when there aren’t miniBFF ears around.
