Love is in the air. On this episode, we talk to Dr. Christina, a recently minted PhD in American studies. She shares her reflections and authentic advice on what it's like to date while in graduate school. Some of the topics we cover include:
- identifying the place of romantic relationships in our life and how the prioritization of relationships changes throughout grad school
- the pros and cons of dating someone who is also a student
- the importance of therapy in helping you to conceptualize how to date and why you approach dating the way you do
- grieving while also attending to academic commitments
All in all, this episode is a reminder for folks to seriously consider therapy as a way to help you make sense of your dating approach. Dr. Christina suggests the directory provided by therapyforblackgirls.com to help you find a provider.
