In Spite Of Multiple "Wrongs", Can He Still Be Mr. Right?
It's Caller Day! Just how many unchecked boxes are *too* many? Today's conversation is a doozy and covers just about everything: different religions and cultures, socioeconomic class, a parent's approval, the pandemic, self-esteem, and coming of age. Our lovely caller, Jamie, is in a happy relationship but it isn't what she'd envisioned for herself. If you've ever been in a relationship you valued but knew deep down things weren't quite right, we guarantee you will relate to the crossroads at which Jamie finds herself.

Bachelorette Recap: Ep 3 | Right Reasons™ Drama, Nick Viall's Group Date, & Instagram Thomas
Shandy is back with your recap of Episode 3 of Katie Thurston’s season of The Bachelorette! Come join us to dissect Karl's behavior, the least fun Group Date of all time, Michael's 1-on-1, and of course, THOMAS.  Sharleen is a veteran Bachelor recapper, having recapped for 7 years (!) on her blog, All The Pretty Pandas, and for Flare magazine, since her own appearance on Season 18. Andy, meanwhile, has never watched a full season (this is no joke—he even fast-forwarded through most of Sharleen's own season). But, being married to the "Recap Queen", even he has gleaned a thing or two. Hear Shandy break down Season 17 of The Bachelorette with Sharleen's insider perspective, Andy's unfiltered male perspective, and Shandy's combined analytical minds.  Check out a free chapter of Desiree Hartsock Siegfried's new book - The Road To Roses! https://bit.ly/3gR1awF If you have a relationship question, write us at: dearshandy@gmail.com Subscribe and watch the episodes on YouTube! https://bit.ly/SubscribeDearShandy Follow us!

Demystifying Your Pelvic Health & Secret Tips For More Pleasure ft. Dr. Uchenna Ossai
Today's Hot Topic episode is one of Sharleen's personal favorites. We're joined by the brilliant Dr. Uchenna Ossai, one of a handful of pelvic floor physical therapists in the world to also be certified in sexuality counseling. We polled you over on Instagram for your questions, and boy, you DELIVERED. Today's conversation covers everything from pain during sex, to post-natal issues, to incontinence, to orgasms (including Dr. UC's orgasm hacks!) There's something for everyone in this episode, even those with no pelvic concerns. Needless to say, the pelvic floor plays a serious role in all your down-there activity, and Dr. UC is a bottomless pit of wisdom, delivered in the most non-judgmental and positive way. Prepare to learn a lot, to have fun doing it, and to do lots and lots of kegels... Thanks to our sponsor - HELLOFRESH!

Q&A! Texting Chemistry, He's Just Not That Into You, & The One That Got Away
It's Q&A time! We're back, answering YOUR burning questions. 🔥 Does texting style affect our perception of a person, and how good an indicator is texting compatibility for real-life compatibility? If your current flame ended an engagement a mere 3 months before you met, and won't commit for that reason, is he just not into you or does he really just need more time? (And on that note, had Andy met Sharleen only 3 months after his ended engagement, does he think they still would have worked?) How dirty is TOO dirty for a date's home, and is an unkempt home a dealbreaker? Come join us in our living room for the Shandy take!"

Confessions of a Reality TV Dating Show Host ft. Mark L. Walberg (Temptation Island)
Have you ever watched a reality TV dating show and wondered what that poker-faced host is REALLY thinking? As Temptation Island fans and general admirers of its host Mark L Walberg's piercing commentary, we're thrilled he agreed to join us for a Confessions episode! Temptation Island brings on four straight real-life couples who are at crossroads in their relationships, separates them for a month, and has them live with (very forward) straight singles of the opposite sex. It originally debuted in 2001, at the start of the reality TV boom, and was rebooted in 2019. As the host of a show with an obviously controversial concept, how does Mark navigate the usual trappings of reality TV "trash"? Does he make his own personal predictions about the couples and their outcomes? Does he pick favorites among them? How much does he really know when heading into a "bonfire"? How has Mark's own marriage informed his ability to spot and call out destructive relationship behavior? Mark is a very open and endearingly honest guest, and whether or not you're a fan of Temptation Island, his perspectives on relationships, love, and life are worth listening to. In case you're interested in dipping your toe into Temptation Island, Sharleen's favorite season is Season 4 (or Season 1 of the reboot), and Andy's is Season 5 (or Season 2 of the reboot).   Thanks to our sponsors!

Q&A! Relationship Disillusionment

If you think you're falling for your soon-to-be-roommate—who also happens to be 6 years younger than you—should you explore this or let it go? If you're "cloaked" by someone on a dating app, even after making plans, should you call out their rude behavior?

My Boyfriend and I View COVID Differently—Is This A Deal Breaker?!
It's Caller Day! If you've been in a relationship throughout this pandemic, our first caller's predicament just might resonate: How do you reason with a partner who just doesn't see eye to eye with you on COVID safety? Is this potential dealbreaker material? Our second caller's issue is on the other end of the spectrum: If you were dating someone exclusively (to your knowledge), what would you do if you found their dating profile actively being updated? Is it what it looks like? Watch on for the Shandy take! PS—Our first caller, Rebecca, attended an Ivy League school but wanted to keep the school name private, so that's what the bleeps are.

Navigating Jealousy in Relationships & Exploring Non-Monogamy ft. Janet W. Hardy
Jealousy is a beast of a topic, so we thought long and hard about who to help us tackle it. Shandy brought the big guns: who better to talk jealousy than the woman who quite literally WROTE THE BOOK on open relationships? We're thrilled to welcome Janet W. Hardy, the co-author of The Ethical Slut, the iconic guide to polyamory that was first published in 1997 and is now on its 3rd edition. As someone experienced in both monogamy and non-monogamy, Janet is no stranger to the jealousy trap. We ask Janet: Why do we feel jealous, what do those feelings often represent, and how can we navigate them? Can jealousy be a good thing for a relationship, and is there such a thing as not being jealous enough? Finally, we pick Janet's brain about open relationships and her personal experiences with polyamory. Can non-monogamy work if it's only one-sided, and do open relationships reflect an inability to commit? Janet is an incredibly frank and honest guest, so Shandy invites you to listen with an open mind and enjoy. "The Ethical Slut" by Janet W.

Should I Tell My Ex Lover's Girlfriend About Our Secret Affair?
Today's call touches on an interesting moral dilemma that many have likely considered, but far fewer have acted on. As "the other woman", which is more ethical: To tell your ex-lover's girlfriend about his cheating ways, or to stay out of their relationship and let her learn those tough lessons on her own? How far does "Do Unto Others" extend, or is it better to trust in karma? And in playing a role in the indiscretion, does one surrender the right to moral high ground?
