Chum Bucket Adventures
Boat days are all about the company, and it took Riv and Elle a while to learn that lesson. First, they got invited on a "yacht" which was an old fishing boat, to their surprise. The cherry on top? Maybe the boat captain who had never driven a boat. They finally landed on a proper yacht, but the company was not ideal, and they contemplated calling the water authorities to take them back to shore. Learn from them and do your research before committing to a day on the water. Ask for a guest list and maybe a picture of the boat too? The girls end this week's episode with more listener questions. write-in for next week: https://untched.com/write-in SOCIALS: @untchedpodcast @rivers.smyth @elleggraves

Navigating Situationships
This week Riv and Elle dive into situationships. First, they define situationships from their own experiences and land on "undefined relationships with one person wanting more than the other," much like the extended talking phase. The girls list some signs that you might be in one yourself, and the biggest sign is confusion. Next, the girls chat about the don't ask but tell policy. If you want to ask the "what are we" or "where is this going" questions stop yourself and instead tell them what you want. They aren't worth the time if they can't match your energy.  UNTCHED WEBSITE: https://untched.com/write-in SOCIALS: @untchedpodcast @rivers.smyth @elleggraves

We're Getting Back Together...
Riv and Elle jump right into this week's episode. First, the girls chat about how you break the news to your friends and family about getting back together with an ex. It can be awkward, especially after hours of gossip. Don't pull a 180 on your friends and keep them in the loop when you are rekindling things with an ex. It'll make the "hey, we're getting back together" conversation a little bit easier. Remember that your friends and family typically have your best interest at heart, so if the news is not received well, it's not because they don't want to see you happy. Next Riv, and Elle wonder, "should you confront a ghoster?" The answer is definitely. Ghosting is an easy way out, so why make it easy for them. Keep it classy and leave with some dignity, but stand up for yourself! Finally, the girls give some fun cheap date ideas for couples. The key is to romanticize everything you do with each other. A grocery run can be a date if you make it one.  UNTCHED website: https://untched.com/ SOCIALS: @untchedpodcast @rivers.smyth @ellggraves

Infatuation vs. Love
Happy Wednesday! This week Riv and Elle have a birthday gift guide for the people who are exclusive but not dating. Don't show up empty-handed, but you can celebrate someone outside of wrapped gifts. Plan something fun, and don't stress yourself out about it! Moving into the episode, they rant about how important they think it is to keep a little mystery within your relationships. Mystery meaning don't be f***ing gross. Do you want to pig out on hot wings? Call your close girlfriends, not your man. Next, they move into infatuation vs. love, two entirely different concepts. Love shouldn't keep you on your toes and give you butterflies. The butterflies are your body's response to anxiety and nervousness. Love should feel safe, and there should be a sense of security surrounding the relationship. Finally, Riv and Elle answer a listener question about their experiences with birth control.  Burning questions?

Green Flags and Intentions
Happy Wednesday! Riv and Elle kick off the episode chatting about valentines day prep. Should you get him a present or not? They mutually agree that the safe option is to show up empty-handed, especially if you're not dating. Of course, they have another movie review for you. This week they review redeeming love. They had no idea what they were getting themselves into, but they have to say 10/10.  Getting into the meat of the episode, the girls give you the code to instantly find out someone's intentions. If their words and actions don't match, RUN! The biggest red flag is big talk. They move on to talk about their green flags and what you should look for in the early stages of a relationship.  Finally, Riv and Elle chat about dating as an over thinker and the challenges that may arise. If you need consistent reassurance in your relationships, there is no shame in asking for it. Open communication is important, and if someone isn't willing to give you what you need, you're not losing anything. But, have you ever thought maybe relationships aren't for you? The girls bring up that we are programmed to desire romantic relationships even if it's not what we need in certain stages of our life. Take time to yourself and enjoy the phases!

Rom Coms Are Ruining Your Love Life
TRIGGER WARNING this episode contains topics that may be sensitive to some viewers The girls had a long weekend in, which means many updates, impulse decisions, and movie reviews. Shortstop is sneaking his way back, which leads the girls into a conversation about the Megan Fox and MGK aesthetic. It can come off a little intense. Also, mystery man only has one calf? Riv and Elle are always balling on a budget and decided never to get their nails done again. They chat about this new nail adventure and attempt to justify it by channeling the Kim K natural nails. Moving into the episode, Riv and Elle talk about some movies they recently watched. The two movies in question are After and The Hating Game. Both fall under the category of romance but are quite the opposite. The girls notice little to no communication in the relationships showcased and tons of toxic energy. Maybe there's a better genre for these movies like uhhh thrillers? They close out the episode with a listener question about lo the limo driver but suspect they may have fallen victim to a little prank.  UNTCHED website: https://untched.com RIV YOUTUBE: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQKHJzCodOhGzp-JcMlgBYQ SOCIALS: @untchedpodcast @rivers.smyth @elleggraves

Tis the Season for Seasonal Depression
This week Riv and Elle tap into some pop culture. First, they have to address the Sex and the City reboot. All they have to say is "out of pocket." Getting into the episode, they chat about seasonal depression, which seems significantly worse this year. Can we all agree winter is a simulation? Riv and Elle share some things to brighten up the winter days. The takeaway is to go easy on yourself now more than ever. Lightening the mood, the girls are joined by meg, a fan favorite, to talk about queefing. Is it awkward? The short answer is no because hot girls queef. Farting, on the other hand, is a NO GO. The only thing worse than Disney couples is couples who fart around each other. Respectfully, stop. Your homework this week is to start Sex and the City if you haven't already, and don't forget to send UNTCHED to a friend!

Clout Chaser Confessions
This week the girls chat about clout chasers, aka them. The girls were freshmen living in a big city but small dorm room and chowing down on dining hall food every day. Unsure of themselves, there was a desire to get recognized by the rich and famous even if the attention didn't last long. They had big dreams of becoming famous for God knows what and decided to start chasing that clout. Looking back on that phase, Riv and Elle aren't exactly proud but share a few painfully stupid but funny stories they got along the way. They almost got pulled out of school for going on a tour bus? With the stories comes major life lessons the girls think you all should hear. While fame and money can be attractive, it's not all that it seems to be. Riv and Elle explain how clout is often used in a manipulative way, and intentions aren't always pure. Lastly, the girls dissect more listener texts, and this week, we have a brutally honest guy totally dissing the nice guy act.  UNTCHED website: https://untched.com/ SOCIALS: @untchedpodcast @rivers.smyth @elleggraves

How to Be THAT Girl
Let's get our shit together! This week Riv and Elle talk about how to be THAT girl. First, the girls dive into the toxic positivity and unrealistic standards the THAT girl aesthetic creates on social media. Realistically not every day will be perfect, and your daily routine won't always check all of the boxes. Elevating your lifestyle and creating a healthy mindset is about listening to yourself and your needs rather than following someone else's daily routine. Riv and Elle share the lifestyle changes and perspectives that helped them elevate to higher versions of themselves. Remember, part of being THAT girl is not always being THAT girl.

What Makes A Good Friend?
The girls kick off this week's episode with a weekend recap. Chaos, to say the least. Unfortunately, there was major walking dead energy as a reappearance of someone caused a huge breakdown. With that breakdown came realizations for both Riv and Elle. So, this week the girls chat about friendship and closure. Beginning with friendship Riv and Elle discuss what makes a good friend. Remember you have to be a good friend to attract good friends. Riv and Elle then move on to talk about closure. So often, people look for closure from an outside source, but maybe it's time we realize we won't always receive that. The most valuable closure comes from within. Sometimes it's better to keep doors shut because you may not like what's on the other side.

As people who share the love languages quality time and touch the girls don't think they could make one work. On the topic of couch boy, Riv and Elle talk about sharing your relationship on social media. Do people only post about their relationship to overcompensate for something that's lacking? Is there a need to prove to others how genuine the connection is? After losing her Instagram, Riv has a different outlook on social media and what should and shouldn't get posted. Next, the girls share their thoughts on boyfriends who won't share their girlfriends on social media. Do they want to keep their personal life personal, or de they want to maintain the single guy persona? How can you tell the difference?

911? He Ghosted Me
With Halloween right around the corner, Riv and Elle thought it was the perfect time to talk about ghosting. People who have been ghosted can attest to how awful it feels. In a frenzy to figure out what went wrong, you usually blame yourself, and questions fly. What happened? Would this have happened if I had done something differently? Unfortunately, there are usually no answers to those questions. As girls who have walked in those shoes, Riv and Elle encourage you to stray away from ghosting someone and instead leave with an explanation. The girls then move on to explain how you should respond to a ghost. Mimic their actions and no longer put any energy into that relationship, don't pull the gamebook out, and please don't post on social media in hopes they'll come running back. The best way to respond is to go MIA just like them. Ghosting is a brutal form of rejection, especially when emotions are involved, but remember, rejection is a projection. What is meant for you will never miss you!  UNTCHED website: https://untched.com/ SOCIALS: @untchedpodcast @rivers.smyth @elleggraves

Then, after hearing some of yours, the girls share their own and create the new concept of red lights. You might notice a few red flags in a guy and decide to look past them, but if you spot a red light, put it in reverse and drive the other way. Finally, Riv and Elle touch on the biggest red flag of them all, love bombing. Love bombing leaves no room to step back and think, "do I even like this guy?" It's a form of manipulation used to reel someone in during the honeymoon stage and usually ends MESSY. Hoping you all dodge the love bombers Riv and Elle share the typical traits to look out for. The girls close off the episode with a listener write in, "what do we do with the boyfriends who don't think you should have any guy friends?"

The first step is self-compassion. We are all so hard on ourselves, but why? Our self-talk should be similar to the way we speak to our closest friends. One way to build that self-compassion is building positive self-talk. Riv and Elle incorporate this in their daily routines with "I am" affirmations. The girls share some action steps you can take to become the most confident you! To finish, Riv and Elle speak on confidence in the bedroom. Is confidence the key to great sex? It's all about getting out of your head and enjoying the moment. This week remember that you are your own biggest critic.  UNTCHED website: SOCIALS @untchedpodcast @rivers.smyth @elleggraves

A haunted Airbnb, trapped in a subway elevator, ran over by an escalade, a screaming fight in the middle of a restaurant, and so much more in this week's EP. Was New York rejecting them?

This week, as girls who have once walked in those shoes, Riv and Elle deliver some tough love. Stop wasting your time on people who put in minimal effort, and stop holding onto that minimal effort.  How do we avoid this cycle? Well, we need to start setting boundaries!

Dating App Dos and Don'ts
Sixty percent of people have a positive experience on dating apps? This statistic seems fishy, especially for Riv and Elle, who have had several bad but equally hilarious experiences on dating apps. As the forty percent who have had not such great experiences, the girls decide to share one of their favorite hinge stories. It was Riv's date, but Elle was, of course, along for the ride.  Don't worry! Riv and Elle have learned from their mistakes and have obtained several dating app dos and don'ts. They start by talking about what guys should NOT include in their profiles, such as Fish pictures, pimped-out cars, "here for a good time", and so much more. Then the girls drop some advice on starting conversations on the apps, the perfect bios, what photos to include, and finally, the ideal first date. Should you have a picture with your dog on your profile? Do you limit app conversation and go straight for the phone number? Does the first date HAVE to be a dinner date? How do we drop the hint that we're looking for something serious without sounding crazy? All of these questions and so many more are answered in this episode.  Remember to go into the dating app world without expectations, set your boundaries, and have fun.

School is back in session, so Riv and Elle decided to share some of their favorite stories from freshman year's glory days. They kick it off with the ultimate ick, swim trunks. While housesitting, the girls decided to dip in the hot tub but didn't exactly show up prepared. Next, they move into their all-star weekend adventures. Riv skipped Valentine's day dinner with her boyfriend to spend the night at a table with Elle and The Migos? Although Riv and Elle aren't huge basketball fans, they would have been stupid to pass up courtside tickets. It all sounded good in theory; however, a good night is all about good company, which wasn't exactly the case for them. Elle explains her first Bulls game experience with quite possibly the worst company. Finally, Riv and Elle get into their old TikToks and everything they would do for a couple of views. Remember, college is a time to have fun, and you have to leave with a couple of good stories, but please do not try any of this at home.  UNTCHED website: https://untched.com SOCIALS: @untchedpodcast @rivsmyth @elleggraves

It's so important for everyone to know they are not alone, so as someone who has experienced this first hand, Elle touches on her experience. Both Riv and Elle advise on how to recognize this behavior and when to leave. On the entirely opposite end, they wonder, "how do you know you're in love?" and the answer may surprise you. With so many more questions about manifesting your dream man, Riv talks about how she manifested big into her life and a manifestation hack they found on TikTok.  UNTCHED website: https://untched.com/ SOCIALS: @untchedpodcast @rivsmyth @elleggraves

Dating Older Men
After a listener write-in and several questions about dating older guys, Riv and Elle decided to dedicate an entire episode to the topic and their experiences. Of course, this leaves room for the proper introduction of dog dad and rich man. The girls dig up their past and their first relationships after their move to the city. They lived double lives, to say the least, ashamed of their ages and the age gaps with the guys they were seeing. Of course, along the way, lessons were learned specifically about the dating scene in Chicago, which is all shared in this episode. Age is relative, and if you click with someone, you click no matter the age gap. The girls note that it's important never to be naive and understand your worth entering a relationship, age aside.  UNTCHED website: https://untched.com/ SOCIALS: @untchedpodcast @rivsmyth @elleggraves
