Episode 7: About dating, with Chris Davis

Meet Chris Davis. We used to date. Now we don’t, but we’re really good friends. And we were able to make that transition smoothly because we’re free to speak our truth with each other. 

In this episode you’ll hear our dating story, which includes meeting on Bumble, going on a first date at a minor league baseball game, and saying “I love you” in the first week of knowing each other. Chris and I get super honest about how we’ve navigated our connection, and share the difficult, truthful things we’ve said to each other over the course of time that have helped us grow. I am so grateful to have Chris in my life, and I’m honored to get to share some of the lessons we’ve learned together with you.

Tulsa Tomorrow, the company that connects Jewish entrepreneurs to opportunities in Tulsa. They were the reason (along with the influence of my friend Mike Basch) for me moving to Tulsa temporarily. The organization creates curated experiences and opportunities for people looking at Tulsa as a place to move, grow, and connect. If you’re curious about moving to Tulsa, I’d also recommend checking out Tulsa Remote.
