This week my very dear friend, Margaret Shrum, is sharing her adventures with dating 75 men. She would share her titillating stories with me after every date. Totally drool worthy. I was thrilled when she agreed to be a guest on my podcast to discuss her journey. Margaret is a Love and Sensuality Stylist, creating workshops and consulting for her brand, Vitamin L. Living in Seattle since 2014, she is currently writing a book about compassionate dating with intention and humor. If you’ve ever thought about dating multiple people at once or may be timid about the thought of it, listen up, you’ll learn it's really not what you might think or expect. It’s actually courageous and sexy AF! About Margaret Shrum Margaret Shrum is a Love and Sensuality Stylist, creating workshops and consulting for her brand Vitamin L. Living in Seattle since 2014, she is currently writing a book about compassionate dating with intention and humor. The book is based on her year of research dating 75 men in NYC after recovering from a devastating divorce that left her feeling depressed and hitting rock bottom. Margaret's hope is to share her journey and encourage a different way of navigating intimacy, honest communication and rediscovering love and romance after divorce. Dating can be uncomfortable, intimidating and frustrating but it can also teach us how to be more compassionate, kind and considerate to those we date. Margaret has over two decades of hands-on experience as an intimate apparel stylist and has helped thousands of women embrace their bodies and celebrate their sensuality. Her former company, the Lingerie Goddess, was a place for women to learn how to not only build a lingerie wardrobe, but to see themselves as beautiful and confident women at every age, shape and stage in their lives.
