Level up your dating game with Shannon Boodram! Screw those dating books filled with pick up artist techniques to trick potential mates. Shan’s dating advice is more like “dating therapy”… and you need it! We talk about the importance of addressing emotional intelligence before you start swiping on Tinder. Shan tells us why knowing you and your partner’s attachment style and apology style is so important. We also learn why risky behavior is integral to your brain’s development and bonding with a partner, how to handle things if your partner isn’t as committed to doing self-work as you are, flirting tips for those that aren’t great with non-verbal cues, and more. No matter your relationship style, sexual orientation, romantic orientation, or gender, Shan’s info is just as valuable to new partners as to those who have been together for decades.
