There’s really no way around it: The early stages of a relationship are just awkward. Whether you’re too silly, too serious, too clinical (Will you please take these four personality assessments and get back to me with the results?), or just tired of all the surface-y questions, there’s no easy way to get through those first few weeks of dating. Our guests have done it and lived to tell about it, so they’ll share their best stories and wisdom with you. Hopefully their insight will help you slow down, enjoy the journey, and not give up too soon.
