If you've been waiting for the tea on my romantic life, I am finally serving it up piping hot. In this episode, I've joined forces with my girlfriend, Jessie, to answer listener questions about our relationship and give some advice.

We discussed:

  • How it is that we are “so fucking cute” since inquiring minds apparently want to know.
  • Our love story, from how we met to where we are now.
  • Why we decided to move in together.
  • Our relationships with our parents and the level of support they've shown us in our relationship.
  • What kinds of shenanigans we would have gotten up to in an alternate reality where we both got to be in high school together.
  • The biggest challenges of our relationship and the biggest joys.
  • How to know when you've found “the one.”
  • The evolution of how we resolve conflict in our relationship and the importance of safety.

You can keep up with Shohreh on her websiteInstagramTikTokPinterest, and Facebook.
