What do you do if you've hit a wall with dating apps?😐
Ross reveals a big update while Joey finds herself hitting a wall with the dating apps. Statistically, you would *think* you'd be able to find someone for a date or two after swiping through literally thousands of profiles per week...however, swiping doesn’t seem to be enough.

How can you tell if he's being genuine?🤥
Happy 30th Episode!🥂Joey and Ross reveal how their first week of swiping through 1000 people a day😱unfolded. Joey discovered that her resilience to getting ghosted is gradually increasing along with her spidey sense for the particularly gifted, deep undercover Fboy. She learned a valuable lesson in finding the line between trust and getting played by sending out her first carefully crafted text to suss out said Fboy - follow us on TikTok @joeyandross for our upcoming series “texts to suss out a f*ckboy”, a sequel of sorts to our bread and butter, "how to spot an undercover f*ckboy". Ross, on the other hand, dials down her sassy nature but still manages to call out a textbook f*ckboy, as she should. While wading through last week’s dating pool including Ivy-league-entitlement dude and area-code-hoe dude, she wonders how to decipher between someone who is actually being genuine and those who are playing the game. When can we let down our guard and trust what they’re saying to be true?

What are your non-negotiables?📝
After scaring away her last 3 matches, Ross decides to dial down her sassy texting style and wonders if she’s being too quick to judge and ghost someone.

On the topic of red flags, they both review their list of non-negotiables (Ross's consists of a succinct one she comes up with on the spot, while Joey reveals a four page, single-spaced manifest compiled over years) to determine what define actual deal breakers versus nice-to-haves.

Should I start an OnlyFans 🧐
While Ross sets her boundaries with a potential new F-boy (like, don’t even come for us, we are the CEOs of F-boy texts), Joey learns the value of pushing through the small talk part of texting, and focusing on green flags.

How do you know if you're getting "copy and pasted"?🤹🏼♂️
Joey and Ross review their homework, and dive into how to like the nice guy, which obviously yields a much more sustainable relationship.
