Episode 055: Nurturing Gay Relationships With Intention – Elliott Kronenfeld

You have a guy, a gal, someone significant in your life.
At first the thrill of love is exhilarating, all hearts, chocolates, and flowers. Then, before you know it, the two of you have settled into the mundane existence of being a couple…an unconnected, to much else going on, couple!

Then, one day, you realize, you’re more connected to your friends at work then you are the person you share a bed with – that just ain’t right!
