Sara Eckel joins us to talk about how Buddhist insights can inform our dating experience.
Though the Buddha really didn’t date, per se, he was at one time married, and his wife and son were part of the rest of his life, even though that relationship changed. Whether you’re single, in a relationship, married, or “it’s complicated”, dating can be tough. So what lights might Buddhism shed on being single?
