Fun and honest dating advice

Thanks for a realistic show about modern dating!
your show has helped me get ready to get back out thereafter my divorce. I appreciate the down to earth discussion and open talk about modern dating. I feel ready to date and prepared for some of the people I’ll meet.
(Could do without the “dating dish” gossip segment)
