Lauren returns to the podcast to talk about how emotional thinkers approach dating, realizing I'm not the logical thinker I thought I was. Taking quizzes, invoking awesome quotes and more... The goal is to use both logic and emotion but we're human and that's never as easy as it sounds.
Chris joins the podcast to talk about his experience with codependent partners, my reaching 12 years of independence from relationships and we find the middle in interdependent relationships. We used answers from my IG Story question and the article below as our resource for this conversation: https://www.verywellmind.com/how-to-build-a-relationship-based-on-interdependence-4161249

Now it's finally Round 2 of Ray's return. After talking about movies we move over to TV Shows, more movies and books (and their adaptions) and more unrealistic expectations. We talk about love triangles and other typical tropes we find in media.
Ray is back for Round 2.... 1.5. We're both movie nerds so the first half of this two parter focusing on us talking about the unrealistic expectations that are set by movies when it comes to sex, dating and relationships.

As being one of the few male friends to my female friends it’s always interesting how they approach introducing me and how awkward it can be. I’ve been friends with Jessica for about 23 years and what better person to bring on the show. She even asked some compelling questions for when I do get in to a relationship.
I wanted to speak about this question because I saw a tweet where someone said that if you've been in a relationship for 2 years and not planning to get married then what are you doing? I decided to ask Pam to come on the show because I officiated her wedding and figured what better person to ask about dating, relationships and even marriage. She also has this awesome podcast where she and her husband Scott (from the LDR episode) talk about fandoms: https://anchor.fm/theshed

Kate and I discuss the importance of communication when you’re getting to know someone and in relationships. How technology (texting and social media) plays a factor in the beginning.
