The psychic prediction that came true—Is this mere coincidence? Listen and decide for yourself.

After the death of her husband Tris, Jenny describes her first romantic kiss—what she didn’t feel, but what she felt.

All of a sudden, he got possessive. A switch flips and jerk behavior ensues.

The ethical slut: defense of a slutty widow.  This references the poly community (polyamory is the practice of, or desire for, intimate relationships with more than one partner, with the informed consent of all partners involved). Jenny brings this up because if you were in love with your spouse when he or she died, in a sense, you carry that relationship with you. Like a polyamorous relationship.  Profound heartfelt discussion.

Coffee with Bruce: first date number thirty-six. Is he the last first date? 

And there’s plenty more!
