If only I had found this earlier

This is a fun, wise, intelligent and only very sometimes depressing podcast. I have never dated, but I love listening anyway! I only found it a week ago, but I’ve been going through it very quickly!

Maybe don’t put down skinny guys

Was excited to listen to this, but on the first episode one of the hosts talks about how she finds skinny guys unattractive. And while of course e’eryone’s got their preferences, as a skinny guy myself, it didn't want to make me listen to the podcast. I think they could be a little more sensitive to who might be listening.

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.
