Talking all things love, life, lust, and a bunch of other stuff. Nothing is off limits in this podcast that navigates relationships and dating in the modern day. Brought to you by two bachelor finalists Brittany Hockley and Laura Byrne.
Society... SCREW YOUR TIMELINE!
"Your age doesn’t determine if you can be successful, and your bank account doesn’t determine if you are happy."
Today we are talking timeline pressures, career changes and running your own race!
But before we do that we have some hella cute Bumble success stories!
Have you noticed we are all in hurry to get there, wherever that may be! In a hurry to grow up, graduate, become successful, in a hurry to get things done. We get upset when things don’t go our way, when results are not achieved instantly. It’s one big race and we are petrified of being left behind.
Timelines have consciously or subconsciously been ingrained in our minds from the beginning. Whether it was uni graduation by 21, owning property before 30, getting married and having kids by 35 or retirement by 60. It seems there is always something that should have been done by a certain age or time. Maybe somewhere along the way you've wanted to change your career path but the thought of change and failure is too much, so you just don't.
But then, society has this funny way of making us feel that if we don’t accomplish these deadlines, we are failing. We start existing in this vicious cycle of feeling unaccomplished, unsuccessful and a little lost. We start questioning why we aren’t where we were 'meant' to be. We start comparing our timelines to others timelines. Well, we are here to tell you that your journey is YOURS and hot damn you can run that race any way you see fit!
Thanks to todays sponsor @bumble_australia , where women are empowered to take control of their dating life and make the first move.

UNCUT WITH MATTY J - A mans perspective!
Happy Tuesday Lifers!
This week because Laura has been severely unwell and hasn’t been able to get out of bed we’ve had to mix it up a little and do the old switcheroo! So today we are bringing you ‘ask uncut’ and on Thursday you’ll get your juicy episode (hopefully Laura can talk again by then!)
Not only that but we have a special guest joining Britt today to answer your deepest, darkest questions... (drum roll please) it’s Laura’s other half Matt! About time we got a males perspective right?! We thought we’d really take advantage of his ‘expertise’ so we chat all things ghosting - why guys do it and also how to let them down easy, we chat jealousy and uncertainty in relationships, and how to know the difference between ‘grass is always greener’ or if you actually want to end the relationship.
You don’t want to miss this one!

SEEING GREEN - The Jealous type
It’s Tuesday lifers! And we are taking a walk with the green eyed monster.
But first we are unpacking you most hilarious Bumble online dating stories thanks to todays sponsor - you guessed it Bumble!
Chances are, unless you’re a a beautiful, unique, mythical unicorn mermaid, you’ve experienced jealousy at some stage of your life, especially in romantic relationships. Maybe for reasons that are warranted or maybe it comes from a place of deep insecurity, either way we are going to get to the bottom of it because it is not conducive to a healthy relationship.
There is one kind of jealousy that we are really going to deep dive into, and that is retrospective or retroactive jealousy, which is when one experiences painful thoughts and an intense overwhelming and all consuming curiosity and obsession with their partners past relationships and sexual history. And let us tell you, it’s real and never ends well.
Thank you to today’s sponsor, Bumble. The dating app where women make the first move. An app that empowers users to connect with confidence whether dating, networking, or meeting friends online.

Sister Bachelorettes & Bondi's dating app predator
Happy Tuesday guys!
We have a bloody big episode for you today with back to back interviews!
First up we have the first ever Bachelorette sisters Elly and Becky Miles! We get to know the girls, chat embarrassing stories and how exactly a double sister bachelorette actually works!
Then we jump into something a little more serious but something we feel very passionately about. This past few weeks we’ve seen an online dating story go viral. And not for reasons you may hope.
Ebonie Sanderson, a local bondi woman has come forward detailing the horrific abuse she received online from a man named Tom McGuirk. What we all first thought was just a tirade of abusive messages and voicemails simply because she declined to spend the night with him, turned in much more, with women from all over coming forward to detail their abuse at the hands of Tom McGuirk. From abusive messages, to voicemails, multiple fake accounts in order to troll, to blackmail and threats of stalking.
We wanted to get Ebony on to talk us through her experience , why she felt compelled to go public and to have a wider conversation about consent.
This is an important conversation guys so please share with your friends!

65. Thirsty Thursday - ASK UNCUT
It’s Therapy Thursday lifers!
Gosh it comes around quick doesn’t it! We hope you’ve had a more exciting week than we have this week! Britt almost dated Zac Efron but didn’t because Laura forgot to tell her he was eating dinner across the road from her house.
Once we got past that slippery little detail that was so easily forgotten we jumped in to answering your questions!!
This week we have a work dilemma. How to tell your boss you’re uncomfortable with some of his vocabulary.
A girl that was broken up with by the love of her life and didn’t see it coming. She wants to know “what she did wrong so she can avoid doing it again” and girl, you did nothing!!
And a realllllll pickle... how do you tell the guy you’ve not that long ago started dating that he’s going bald because he may not actually know.... or do you even tell him at all? What a predicament!
Thanks for tuning in lifers! We love and appreciate every one of you!
See you next week!
Please share the love, because, we love love x
Customer ReviewsSee All
A long time coming... Guilty!
As the title suggests this review really should have come a lot sooner... as someone who has dabbled in podcast land fleetingly, this is the first time I’ve found myself eagerly awaiting the latest episode of a podcast series and have even found myself filling my spare time (and sometimes even time at the desk while I should be working productively!!) actually going back and listening to all prior episodes as fast as possible... need I say more, I love it! Thank you for being open, real, thoughtful and often shamelessly honest 😂 - it’s refreshing and inspiring and hopefully many young women embrace your advice and your confidence to be 100% yourselves. 🤜🏼🤛🏼 fist pumps all round !
Best ep yet!
