Lynne Wachira on relationships
Lynne claims she is a single mother but the doors for dating are still open. “No. I love being at the point I am now because I am in waiting. I am looking forward to dating of course but then again, it is in God’s time. I don’t feel the pressure because when it happens, it happens. We don’t have to rush for love.” She says
When asked about what she feels about love and relationships for people in the limelight she has this to say. “I believe in love. Ideally, people should put God first at the onset of their relationships, not wait till the middle of their marriage when things go astray and that is when they start involving God. Love is also not changing how your partner is.”
