    Why you need to stop looking for a spark on first dates

    What are the most important but underrated characteristics we should be looking for in a partner? And what qualities do we place too much emphasis on, that don't actually predict relationship satisfaction? How can we use the apps in a more productive way? We explore these questions and more with Logan Ury. Logan is a behavioral scientist turned dating coach and the author of How To Not Die Alone. Previously, Logan was the Director of Relationship Science at the dating app Hinge and she also ran Google’s behavioural science team—the Irrational Lab.

The Project meets Sex in the City and then collides with Harvard University

“I think it’s always good to have experiences with narcissists as it’s helps you identify them more easily.” - Amantha Imber - Episode 1.

Ok I admit it, I’m one of Amantha Imber’s biggest fans, so yes, I’m biased and proud of it.

Team Amantha Imber with her best buddy Monique Robin and the same chemical reaction fills your ears that would occur if The Project (Australian news/current affairs news talk show) met Sex In The City and then they both simultaneously collided with Harvard University.

This is the real, raw, unedited truth about dating today that I think anyone on the dating scene will relate to. In true Amantha Imber style she smashes reality with academic science (explained in a way a normal human like me can understand) and Robin exposes the stories only your best friends tell you #showerman.

It’s a hysterical, honest and fact filled podcast about how to best to tackle dating in the 2020s!
