This is an EXCITING day. We were able to POLL yall on instagram to find out what YOUR burning questions are regarding dating… we wanted to give you the opportunity to ask us anything, and now Kait is here to discuss it ALL...heyoooo!!
Alrighty friends, truth be told, this is our first SOLO episode so we have to first start out by asking… have GRACE WITH KAIT! We want to put a disclaimer on this episode that Kait does not know the answers to everything. Dating is nuanced and murky and there are a variety of opinions out there. So today Kait does her VERY best to speak from her heart and share with you where she stands on these questions. Her answers won’t be perfect, but they will be from the heart. And they will also be grounded in as much resources and research as possible… but that STILL does not make them the end all be all.
