Great listen for anyone struggling with dating

I discovered 51 first dates in 2018 while struggling with a breakup and trying to put myself back out there. I found Kimmy’s journey to be very relatable as I had gone through my 20s without any serious relationships even though I very much wanted one. Listening to Kimmy and Liza felt like catching up with friends and it helped me go into each new date with a little less pressure on myself. It feels bittersweet that they’re pausing the podcast at this time as I just got married last week after meeting my “gem” in 2020. Even though I’ve been in a committed relationship for 2 years, I’ve still enjoyed listening to each episode.

Review Long Overdue

I’ve been listening to 51 First Dates, well, since their first date! The interplay between these two funny women is always entertaining and, as a guy, I’ve found it very interesting to learn so much about the dating world from a female perspective. This show has helped me through dating, my first long-term relationship, my first long-term relationship break-up, and even got me excited about doing therapy (their unofficial sponsor of choice!). I look forward to whatever the future brings from Kimmy, Liza, and their knowledgable guests/guest daters. Here’s to 1500 more First Dates!

Long time listener

I discovered Kimmy and Liza March 2020 and since then have not missed a single episode. I even asked to be on the show and they had me on! I dont know which episode it is so don’t try to find it.

Anyway, they have gotten me through two relationships, two breakups, lots of lonely single times, adventures through new england, and holidays with my family. I feel like they’re my friends :) Thanks for being one of the few constants in my life!
