Ask for Candy

By Candice Harper
Matchmaking, mating, and dating in a global crisis. This is usually a love and relationship podcast for women who have been through some sh*t and are now on a personal growth journey because they want healthy relationships or no relationships at all. Because of Covid-19, we're gonna pivot a little but it's still a no-nonsense, deep-diving conversation into controversial personal growth and relationship topics with a no-shame attitude. #connection #digitalconnection #intimacy #relationships #mentalwellness #love #digitaldating #pandemic #coronavirus #relationships #community
