New dating podcast alert!
FIRST DATE SEX & EXCHANGING SEX FOR EXCLUSIVITY
First up, we discuss a toxic Tik Tok that went viral from a man who claims women should avoid first date sex to maintain some mystery. (In other news, it's 2020 and our vaginas aren't episodes of Murder, She Wrote.) We also cover why it's a bad idea to use sex to get someone to commit. There are no legal or ethical ramifications for committing to be exclusive then changing your mind. That's why you can't rely on someone's pledge to commit when you're using sex as a bartering chip.
IT'S TIME TO NORMALIZE LACKING RELATIONSHIP EXPERIENCE
If you've never had a relationship or have little relationship experience, you have nothing to be ashamed about. In 2020, when online dating is the norm, it's becoming more and more common for people to struggle when finding a relationship. There are numerous valid reasons - including past trauma - that prevents people from prioritizing finding a relationship. We talk about why this is quickly becoming the norm and how to address questions from dates about your relationship history or lack thereof. Should you tell someone you've never had a relationship? Tune in to hear our answer.
DATING APP DRAMA
Dating is not a team sport! Something men and women need to stop doing is taking their online dating interactions public. We also need to stop looking for reasons to call-out out matches for their "bad" behavior. You're not as anonymous as you think. There's a great chance what you say on social media will get back to your match.
