Amanda

To use the excuse that because she’s a doctor and super successful is the reason she hasn’t found someone is just that, an excuse. Can you imagine meeting someone who said (directly or indirectly) that you’re intimidated by them because of their profession or perceived “success”? You’re basically saying “You can’t keep up with me and you’re not enough.”

I think her issue is that she doesn’t have an identity outside of her career. Her fridge says it all, it’s empty; there’s no depth beyond her profession.

There are thousands of female doctors and millions of successful women who have found love and a partner in life.

Promising But A Work In Progress

I’ve been following Logan Ury’s work this year which is how I tuned into This is Dating. While I have some complaints, overall, I have enjoyed this podcast. The episodes are short, I love eavesdropping on the dates, the daters are diverse, the hosts are cute and I really like Logan’s insight (though it’s more limited than I expected). Starting a new podcast isn’t easy and I appreciate how professional this sounds while also taking a different set up than a lot of podcasts that are out there right now. If I had one actionable critique - I’d love to listen to one dates story at a time instead of bouncing around. Once I’m invested, I’m curious to learn more of *that* person’s journey. I haven’t been a huge fan of the episodes that veer away from the daters. I do not do the paid subscription.

Either way, I find I relate to the dating scenes portrayed which makes me sad as a dater but happy to know I’m not alone in my experiences.
