Hugging etiquette, plus an interview with psychologist Dr. Dan Allender and a question on fantasizing about married sex. Featured musical artist: Lindsay McCaul
Do You Need a Hug?
Back pats, bear hugs, hugs with a kiss, the A-frame, the side hug, opposite-sex-either-married-or-single hugs — how do you navigate the world of hugging? What's encouraging, what's annoying, and what's downright inappropriate? Our panel, ranging from the hug-challenged to the effusively affectionate, weighs in.
Dr. Dan Allender, psychologist and author of books like Intimate Allies and The Healing Path, joins me to talk about why singles are missing out on marriage, what married couples in counseling actually say, and the three non-negotiables couples need to tie the knot. If you've ever heard Dan Allender, you know he doesn't mince words. He certainly doesn't here, so fasten your seatbelt.
