I’m so excited for this episode I can barely contain myself. Ever heard of The Burned Haystack Dating Method?
Let’s begin with a very pragmatic question: How do you find a needle in a haystack? Not metaphorically, but in real life. The answer is that you burn the haystack. There are other methods: you could pick through the entire haystack until you find the needle (maybe), but in the process you’ll be frustrated and uncomfortable and demoralized and waste so much time. In other words, you’ll feel exactly the same way you do after another night spent swiping and scrolling on the apps. So don’t do that. Just burn the haystack. Once it’s gone, you’ll see the needles because metal doesn’t burn.
Take a listen to hear this method’s rules for dating app success.
