Podcast Ep.126 – When should you bring up things like marriage & kids when dating? – Pt. 1

I called in a guest host for this episode and the episode ended up being so good and so long, we had to split it in TWO. You may recognize my guest host from episode 114, Talk Poly to Me, Perhaps Perhaps, aka @PolyGalSeeks on Twitter. In this half of this two part episode, we took a larger question about the timing around bringing up marriage when you first start dating and tried to tackle it from every angle. We start small, by asking how soon you should bring up pets, and work our way up to marriage and kids. Wondering how soon you should bring up the fact that you don’t want kids, or your bad credit, or even whether or not you should move in together and where?

Podcast Ep.124 – How should I Break-Up with my Girlfriend?

william-stitt-111009

In this week’s episode we answer a question about breakup etiquette. What would you do if you wanted to breakup with your partner of 3 years, but the only way to do so in-person would require a 7 hr drive for one of you? Would you have them drive to you so you can break up with them, call them and breakup with them over the phone? Or would you do something completely different?

k_vgiuhgleu-andre-hunter

In this week’s post we answer a listener’s question about honesty, when it comes to his past infidelities. If you’ve cheated in the past, and that’s why your marriage ended, how honest do you have to be when you start dating again about your infidelities? How do you avoid losing someone because of your past, and how do you let it go?

Podcast Ep.121 – Why do some people rush into relationships?

r61veumzkug-tord-sollie

This week we wanted to talk about rushing into relationships. What is it that makes people want to rush into a relationship? What drives people to decide after the first or second date that they need to dive headlong into a relationship? What sort of person wants to rush into a relationship? More importantly, why you should wait even if you are sure about someone after the first date.

Plus, insight into what it’s REALLY like to date Demetrius, why being perpetually in a relationship might be hurting how you view dating, and more.

Podcast Ep.120 – A listener asks: How soon is too soon on a road trip?

 

_b-rkqncne-autri-taheri

In this episode, we open up the Tao of Indifference hotline to answer a listener question about a very specific situation. How soon is too soon to have sex on a first date is an easy answer, sure, but what if it’s a crush from years past who you’re going on a road trip with? Trust me, we’ve got an answer.

Plus: Why you should always limit your liability on your own podcast, why “too soon” is a relative question with no real answer (with one big exception if you want a relationship), how awesome crossover episodes are, we confuse TaleSpin with Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers, post inauguration anxiety, and how hard it is to do the Hora.

Podcast Ep.119 – How to deal with dating flakey people?

5l1axt2xvik-taylor-l-spurgeon

Dating flakey people really are the worst. Unreliable, infuriating, and inconsiderate. The problem is, we can’t completely avoid people flaking on us at least once. So how do you deal with dating flakey people? I know you’ve been wondering, so we’ve got some answers for you.

We get into why people flake before dates, what it’s like to be in relationship with a flakey person, and what you can do to work through flakey behavior is a partner. PLUS: Live tweeting your own funeral, why flaking really sucks if you take the subway, and we get very specific about bygone New York cultural institutions and the best way to eat a Jamaican beef patty.

Podcast Ep.118 – Should you tell them you’ve met someone else?

yxj5afkfgfe-joshua-earle

We’re back, did you miss us? For the first episode of 2017 we wanted to answer a question: If you’re dating someone, and you met someone else, when you end things, should you tell them you’ve met someone else?

Seems like a simple enough question, so we wanted to dig a little deeper. How serious do you need to be? How honest do you need to be? Should you just never tell someone why you want to end things. We get into all that, plus a great boiler plate breakup message that would probably work well in greeting cards, and how cool it would be to have break-ups handled by an officiant.

Podcast Ep. 117 – How to Survive being Single over the Holidays

u6fdue2x11g-roberto-nickson

The holidays can be a tough time for a lot of people, especially single people, even if they don’t particularly celebrate any holidays. It’s a time of the year that is perfectly suited for couples, but singles, not so much.  For many single folks out there, the holidays can represent a period of intense stress, and intense isolation.

Whether it’s questions from family and friends that all really boil down to “why are you still single” or just feeling a general sense of loneliness, it can be a tough time for a lot of people out there. I’ve been single for quite a few holiday seasons and let me tell you, it can be hard, even for me.

But don’t worry though, I’m here to help. Let’s talk about how to survive being single over the holidays.

p.s. I couldn’t find one specific resource for volunteering to spend time with elderly BUT, if you do a quick search for “Friendly visitor/visiting program” and add whatever city you live in, you’ll find a ton of resources.
