    Why we shouldn't always trust our gut when it comes to making dating decisions

    Why we shouldn't always trust our gut when it comes to making dating decisions

    Should we trust our gut when deciding whether to go on a date with someone? What can science tell us about whether opposites attract or do birds of a feather flock together when it comes to dating? What colour should we wear on our dates to maximise our attractiveness? What role does body language play in judging whether someone likes us? We explore these questions and more with Dr Simon Moss who is the Dean of Graduate Studies, as well as an Associate Professor in psychology, at Charles Darwin University.  He is a registered psychologist and has published approximately 10 books and 90 papers.

Fun to listen to, and informative

Having just separated from my partner of 20 years I am not quite ready to date again but when I am, I will definitely listen to this all over again!

Cohosts that barely get along

You know when one person is trying to tear another person down but they've put on a "I'm a nice person" facade? Yeah that's what this was. First episode was really hard to listen to, with one of the women casting doubt on the other's judgement on everything she said and subtly trying to make out she's a bad person. Couldn't stomach anymore of this dynamic when I got to the "You're a person who ghosts but pretends to be a nice person." Dude the only person pretending to be nice is you. The woman telling the story in ep 1 should find a better friend or get a different host which she has some chemistry with. 1 star for the concept of this podcast.
