    Episode 14: Online Dating The Way Nature Intended (In The Cove)

    Episode 14: Online Dating The Way Nature Intended (In The Cove)

    In episode 14, we have a conversation with Charles Messow, who is the driving force behind the brand new dating app Cove. 
    This is a fascinating episode, and if you're single and fed up with online dating (everyone we know is totally over online dating), then you'll want to hear this episode. 
    We discuss the limits of online dating, and why online dating goes against human evolution and nature, so this explains why is rarely works and why everyone gets so frustrated. Women often have little investment in the process because they get bombarded with likes and matches, and guys barely get any attention. 
    Cove, however, tries to remedy many of these problems, and does so in an exciting and interactive way.

    Episode 12: Some Modern Women Have This Career Goal And It May Shock You (And Guys...Clean Up!)

    Episode 12: Some Modern Women Have This Career Goal And It May Shock You (And Guys...Clean Up!)

    In episode 12, we sit down with Courtney Sohler, who operates the website The Strong Homemaker.
    In this episode which is bound to cause some controversy, she explains why some women are foregoing the expected path of competing in the rat race, and instead embracing being homemakers.
    We discuss some of the reasons for this, whether it's "oppressive," and how can women who embrace this choice find the type of guy who can provide in a way that allows them to stay at home.
    And, we just had to ask Courtney some tips on how to make your house a little more presentable, especially since many women consider messy houses (and cars) a dealbreaker.
    This is truly some "disruptive love" in the year 2018.

    Dani also explains why lifting is beneficial for men and women both, and goes over some of the myths associated with lifting and being "bulky." 
    This was a fun and engaging interview, so you'll want to check it out! By the way, here is the article David referenced about guys being muscular and getting more dates, sex, etc.

    Episode 10: A Short, Average Guy Tried Online Dating, Wrote A Book About It And Here's His Story

    Episode 10: A Short, Average Guy Tried Online Dating, Wrote A Book About It And Here's His Story

    For this episode, we have a great conversation with Vince Guaglione, author of Confessions of a Middle-Aged Short Guy With No Game: An Average Joe's Observations from the Deep End of the Dating Pool. Vince is a self-described "average Joe" who is middle aged, short, and has no "game." So, what's it like basically being "average" and trying to date both online and in real life? Hint: average isn't always good enough!
    Vince explains some of the funny things that happened to him along the way, including women choosing to leave singles events rather than engage any of the average guys in attendance. And, it's not all bad news, because when writing his book, Vince discovered tools to overcome some of the limitations of being average. We discuss some of the ways average guys can get a leg up in the dating world.
    Be sure to check out Vince's Twitter, personal website, as well as the Facebook page related to the book, where guys can share stories and insights related to dating: The Average Joe's Dating Confessional.
