S1E6. Dating Slam
There's only so many bad dates, swiping and rejections one can handle before exhaustion sets in. And the cycle starts again. Articulating what the search for love can really be like without sounding cliched is a challenge. In this episode I've chosen to share a recent moment of creative flow that spilled onto the page. it rhymes like a poem but reads like something more raw, a bit like poetry slam (?!). I hope it connects and expresses how you or someone you know might be feeling whilst on the journey for love.

Is dating that tough today that my mum has to pimp me out on social media?

She also tells me what she REALLY thinks about me being 41 and single :/ Good Times!
V relatable to the single millennials.
Especially liked the episode where she interviewed her mother on how dating was different in her day.
A very entertaining look at the dating game. Alison is a fun host.
