But without opening up, how can we truly know and accept the kind of love, kindness and generosity that we all deserve? In my latest article for Dose.com, I explore why it’s just SO DARN DIFFICULT to accept generosity when dating, why it’s so much easier to allow bad behavior and why we all deserve mutual self-giving and vulnerability.
