Thanks for sharing these stories with us! This has helped validate my own experinces and show that I am not alone in what feels like a pretty murky and lonely experience. Your sister's expereince really connected to mine, would love to hear an episode on how a woman can give up her 20s with a man, break up in your 30s and feel ok when she isn't married with kids like most her friends, a rough scenario indeed!
Look forward to your book too.
Consider it a treat for your ears and a band aid for your heart
I am in a committed relationship with little experiences with breakups and yet I love and relate to this show in so many ways! It’s funny, smart and entertaining. Thank you Meredith!
