If you follow me on twitter you know I’ve finally entered the foray of online dating. It’s been interesting to say the least. I’ve had quite a few guys send me messages that are eyebrow raising. Many of them I have screenshots of and sent them around to friends and they garnered quite a lot of chuckles (but due to the respect of these men, I will not be posting them on here, as much as I would love to).
However, I’ve felt quite exhausted with all of it and decided, after only being on it for a few weeks, that I needed to take a break. So I’ve placed my profiles on hold and am instead diving into the world of podcasts and finding new ones I can now spend my time on instead of endless swiping.
The first podcast that I have listened to, thanks to my fellow FA and soul dating sister Jeanette, is u up?
U, up? is by Betches Media and is such a funny and honest podcast. Jordana Abraham and comedian Jared Freid talk about the ins and outs of dating, online dating and give brutally honest dating advice. It’s funny and amusing but also very interesting. The episode I started with was the one with the co-founder of Hinge on it. This episodes talked about different statistics (based on Hinge users). Another episode talks about why millennials have less sex. They bring on a variety of different people and talks about a variety of different topics.
As someone who hasn’t been able to put their dating experience into words, this podcast does it all. If you’re dating, trying to date or just fascinated with the current dating culture, I suggest you listen to this podcast.
I give it a 4/5 because sometimes they ramble too much and their episodes tend to be on the longer side.
