On episode 29 - Destiny, Max, Beau, and Brooklyn dive deep into whether destiny plays a part in our love lives.
What are in the cards for me? Is life a game of chance when meeting someone and finding love? Do we believe that we will only find it when we are not looking for it? Sometimes we are so focused on finding that perfect relationship or mate. Yet at other times we may believe that we are destined to be alone. Am I destined to find love? What does the future hold?
Beau's focus and dedication to working on himself are paying off and others are starting to take note. Brooklyn's relationship is blossoming and they are experiencing added intimacy emotionally and physically. Max reminds himself not to chase after men who do not reciprocate attention. Lastly, Maxwell gets to meet the sexy polyamorous daddy who is looking for a daddy for himself.
"Who can like you? Who can love you if you cant like and love yourself?" -Beau Alexander

Dating Book/Article Review: "The Trouble With Destiny: Relationships Take Work" by Amie at Berkeley Science Review.
Call to Action: Love can be a tough nut to crack let alone find. Some believe that destiny will bring true love while others believe that they are destiny to be alone. Some believe that if they put all their energy into dating that the dividends will pay off while others believe that it’s only when one is not looking that will fate present them with love. Can we take responsibility for our love lives and take action to be present, vulnerable, and receptive? Or will we leave it to fate to craft our lives? Can it be said that it is what it is or it is what we make of it? The choice is yours.
“Destiny is not a matter of chance; it is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.” ―William Jennings Bryan
