Episode 14: Online Dating The Way Nature Intended (In The Cove)
In episode 14, we have a conversation with Charles Messow, who is the driving force behind the brand new dating app Cove. This is a fascinating episode, and if you're single and fed up with online dating (everyone we know is totally over online dating), then you'll want to hear this episode. We discuss the limits of online dating, and why online dating goes against human evolution and nature, so this explains why is rarely works and why everyone gets so frustrated. Women often have little investment in the process because they get bombarded with likes and matches, and guys barely get any attention. Cove, however, tries to remedy many of these problems, and does so in an exciting and interactive way.

Episode 12: Some Modern Women Have This Career Goal And It May Shock You (And Guys...Clean Up!)
In episode 12, we sit down with Courtney Sohler, who operates the website The Strong Homemaker. In this episode which is bound to cause some controversy, she explains why some women are foregoing the expected path of competing in the rat race, and instead embracing being homemakers. We discuss some of the reasons for this, whether it's "oppressive," and how can women who embrace this choice find the type of guy who can provide in a way that allows them to stay at home. And, we just had to ask Courtney some tips on how to make your house a little more presentable, especially since many women consider messy houses (and cars) a dealbreaker. This is truly some "disruptive love" in the year 2018. Check her out on Twitter too!

Episode 10: A Short, Average Guy Tried Online Dating, Wrote A Book About It And Here's His Story
For this episode, we have a great conversation with Vince Guaglione, author of Confessions of a Middle-Aged Short Guy With No Game: An Average Joe's Observations from the Deep End of the Dating Pool. Vince is a self-described "average Joe" who is middle aged, short, and has no "game." So, what's it like basically being "average" and trying to date both online and in real life? Hint: average isn't always good enough! Vince explains some of the funny things that happened to him along the way, including women choosing to leave singles events rather than engage any of the average guys in attendance. And, it's not all bad news, because when writing his book, Vince discovered tools to overcome some of the limitations of being average. We discuss some of the ways average guys can get a leg up in the dating world. Be sure to check out Vince's Twitter, personal website, as well as the Facebook page related to the book, where guys can share stories and insights related to dating: The Average Joe's Dating Confessional.

Episode 8: A Serial Dater Reveals The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly Of Dating in 2018
Today we have Jesse Peterson on our podcast. This is a very fun and informative podcast episode that looks at dating in 2018, whether you like it or not! Jesse operates the website Tinder District, and is a professed "serial dater" who explains what it's like to go on dates with a lot of different guys she meets online and in other places. She tells us about the good, the bad (or at least the weird), and the ugly.

Episode 7: Purely Toxic - The Problem With Extreme Christian Purity Culture
For this episode we sit down with author, speaker, wife, and mom Rebecca Lemke, to discuss her experience with Christian "purity culture," as well as our experiences with it. We discuss a lot of fascinating and fun topics, including: "emotional STDs," people who swear off dating only to suddenly "date" when they meet a hot partner, Christians who "kiss dating goodbye" and how this has led many people to be chronically single into their 30s and 40s, as well as guys who think being a good Christian will get them a date with Christian girls - only to get passed up for hot bad boys. And, we talk about ways to nurture healthy views on dating instead, where Rebecca explains that for Christians, the focus should be on Christ and not a bunch of impossible-to-follow sexual rules. Check out Rebecca's website The Scarlet Virgins, and her book, The Scarlet Virgins: Sex Replaces Salvation.

"have you or your friends ever dated a customer?" (the answer is kind of shocking), as well as her suggestions if you keep giving a server attention and visiting her with hopes of dating her.

And, based on his extensive experience marrying and counseling couples, what makes relationships really last (or end)? His answers, and ours, may surprise you.
