🎁 You know FOMO, discover FODA!

Freebie enclosed...

Consensual greetings! I hope this message finds you well! Wait a minute…

Did you know that you may be suffering from FODA?

What is FODA you’re asking? It’s Fear Of Dating Again, a term that's becoming increasingly relevant now more than ever, and means “the reluctance to date again in a post-pandemic world after spending so many months away from the dating scene — and all in-person social interactions for most”.

The solution? A free ticket to our next Relationship Hotline on Monday!

Grab a free ticket

To play our part in helping you and others overcome FODA in their path to happiness, we decided to make the most of those 60 minutes of relationship hotline to answer collectively 3 questions asked by the audience and talk our ways into a better understanding of ourselves and find solutions.

As always, many brains are better than one!

Have a lovely day!

🤯 Mind-blown

I can’t stop thinking about this...

Style & design - Have you heard of Gwyneth Paltrow’s vagina-scented candle? Well it made the news recently not because of its vagina-scent but because it exploded into flames “causing an ‘inferno’ into a woman’s living room”… OK that is a lot of information to take in. I’ll just leave it here. Oh and if you cannot even consider this story before understanding why this candle even exists in the first place, try this.

Voilà!

My best wishes for meaningful connections! Please send scented candles, intersectional feminist books and your questions on intimacy and relationships to sophie@lvrsnfrnds.com or WhatsApp us!

Enjoying LVRSNFRNDS Courrier? Show me some love with a like and/or share this Courrier with your lovers and friends, post it on your Instagram Story, share it during your boring Zoom meetings, people have the right to know 💖
