Adventures in Dating (and Love): Allison and Rick

Although there may not be any rhyme or reason to love, it remains true that as humans we crave connection. Perhaps the connection you crave is that of a committed, healthy relationship. You must of course do the work (see the article titled “Relationships, Online Dating, and Love” from earlier this month)…yet love is so very available to you. Trust that you are worthy and important. You are right where you need to be to move forward with this amazing story of your life.  

Meet Allison and Rick Edwards. Two individuals who did the work of getting clear about who they were and what they were looking for, opened their hearts, and as a result ‘arrived’ at the ongoing journey of love. May you find hope and inspiration in their story. May you grow from the words of wisdom they share. May you continue to pursue the life you would love to live!
