She tries to process through her Gal Pal Pandemic Happy Hour and gets back into the dating game through a series of “Zoom Dates.” How can she find someone new when there are so many people out there and the process of online dating seems daunting? What about intimacy when she needs to be socially distant? As Renee wades through the advice of her Gal Pals, one question persists: is she enough on her own?
